NEON Shoot with Anna De Rijk + fun NEON Makeup tutorial

green neon wig on model anna de rijkI love this shoot! I actually had the wig pictured above (see pic below) and used to put it on my mannequin “Bean” when selling vintage clothing. Also….my neighbor in South Beach was this really fabulous gay guy that would come over with his friends after clubbing and play dress up in all of my bright colored wigs. Now that was a fun use of the wigs!

*You can still pick this wig up on Ebay for like $20 or $30 bucks. Just search “green wig” and you’ll see quite a few.

Anyway, the super bright neon colors are always great in my book, and model Anna De Rijk pulls it off flawlessly! I think you have to be pretty adventurous though if your going to wear neon. You don’t want to end up looking like a giant piece of fruit! Best to start off with a scarf or a pair of neon stilettos if you’re not sure. 🙂

Futuristic Psychedelic Hippie Love ♥

carolina and naama october criativaWhen I saw this shoot I think I jolted upright in my chair and proceed to swirl around the room! My dogs tend to freak out when I do that and join in the excitement.

Anyway, the photos are from October Criativa and I love them! Colorful and psychedelic, with a total modern day hippie vibe! Kind of looks like they could be on their way to Burning Man or a desert rave.

How I gave in to Gossip Girl + The Pretty Reckless

GOSSIP GIRLThe conversation in my head kinda goes like this….”New show Gossip Girl….hmmm. Do I really want to get wrapped up in another potentially addictive Sex and the City?”

Months later….”Wow, lots of people are talking about it. Forget it! I refuse to watch this new pop fluff cheese wiz of a show! I, am a rebel!”

Time passes…..”Maybe I should just watch one episode to see what all the fuss is about.” *searches Netflix and orders season one* *puts dvd in player* *makes popcorn*

“I’m probably not going to even…..OMG THIS SHOW ROCKS!”

So, now you know my secret. The addiction begins! Which is what led me to do the usual crazy fan Google searching. Which is what led me to Taylor Momsen’s band “The Pretty Reckless”.

There are lots of pics of Taylor, not many of “the reckless”. I did find one on their site, which maybe scared me a little.

the pretty recklessAnd below are a couple of videos. One just released of the band live at the Warped Tour in Houston, and the other is the single “Miss Nothing”. Word has it she writes all the songs, sings, and plays guitar on the album. Not bad little Jenny!
