Tryin Out Red Lips…Time For Some ‘Summer-fying’

Cheap trick a friend taught me…suck on a beer bottle (or a root beer bottle) for about 20 seconds for intense plumping that lasts several hours. Then apply chapstick before lipstick. It fills in fine line which will also give your lips a fuller look, as well as keep your color from bleeding. Try not to fuss with your lips too much, and once your chapstick absorbs, your color will be perfectly uniform and flawless. Go gettum girls!

Now Presenting…OOOOOh Land!!!


‘Sun Of A Gun” by Oh Land (Kinda her real name)


“Oh Land: She is a peculiar new electropop Dane who recently sailed across the sea to the artistic haven of Brooklyn, NY. With an opera singer for a mother, a theater organist for a father and Björk’s Homogenic on constant rotation, Oh Land was enraptured by the combination of experimental and classical arts. ‘My goal is to sound like I’m from 2050, but still feel really classic, like the music is an old friend,’ said Oh Land. She spent her days pirouetting as a ballet dancer at the Danish Royal Ballet Academy when an injury forced her to reinvent herself and discover her true talent and passion as a musician. Oh Land soon released her first album, Fauna, which garnered critical acclaim in her homeland of Denmark. Her soundscapes are lavish, crunchy, symphonic, brute and captivated with rhythms that fly apart. She translates the sounds live via her “contraption” – a homemade one-woman-band music box topped with balloon video projections (seeing is believing). Her music is for movement, and new songs such as the thumping “Sun of a Gun” have proven to make even the most portentous get up and dance. Lovely lady Oh Land released her US debut EP on October 19, 2010.”-Bio via
