To Succumb

March 23, 2013 § Leave a comment

You are here in
The silence
Your breathing a background noise
As immovable as the earth
Limbs lending a poignant gravity to mine entwined
You are here
But not,
A prophet wondering visions
I like to be mindful and present while you are away
A duality of presence and absence
You make the sleeping world inclusive
The silence doesn’t hurt like it used to and
I only remember loneliness.

Light and the Joy of Being

March 18, 2013 § Leave a comment

Because when your gaze falls upon me
I feel real.
Does the tree make a sound in the forest, all alone, when it finally falls?
I only know that when I’m alone I feel ethereal, insubstantial, like a ghost wandering through my empty life.
I only know that the heat of your affection makes me opaque, gives detail and contour and depth, fills my life to the brim.
I only know that without you, there is no me.
You complete the circle of my existence.

My Inglot Haul

March 13, 2013 § Leave a comment

Hi guys! Remember this?



Well, I finally got a chance to take some pictures of the stuff that I got from Inglot. I still can’t believe I actually won something (and something AWESOME). Without further ado, here’s my new make-up and what I think of it!




The primer/under make-up base. This is pretty much pure silicone, and makes my skin look and feel super smooth. I prefer a more liquid consistency to my primer but I am happy with the results of this. 🙂


This stuff is amazingly pigmented!




I did say that this was going to be the year that I bought and wore red lipstick… 😀



Gorgeous greens!



I ADORE the colour on the right. It is absolutely my favourite eyeshadow right now.



Every make-up kit needs some black and white. 😉



Two fun colours for avant-garde stuff. My only complaint is that the faint blue glitter in the one on the right really doesn’t show on skin at all. I’ll have to try it over a primer. 🙂



A gorgeous neutral pallette. 🙂

Over-all I am very impressed with Inglot’s stuff – their eyeshadows are beautifully-pigmented, easy to apply and blend like a dream. I think the freedom system is awesome as it enables me to group colours by function and also make the most of the space in my VERY full make-up kit. I must have more Inglot! 😀

Jan’s parents are in town, and as usual they came bearing awesome gifts. 🙂

Here is what my wonderful parents-in-law bought me for my 21st birthday.
