Busy Busy Busy

So its been a long time since my last post.  Work and family has kept me very busy this fall.

So if recall this summer I was working and remodeling my sewing room ( Well with the help of the Mr) then we had severe rains and we took on water in the basement right where my room is.  I then decided to put the project on hold for a while as the next step was laying a tile floor and if it were to flood again it would all be for not. So we finally put in the floor (Armstrong tiles I think have a nice vintage feel to them and are quite appropriate for a basement).

I wanted to keep the room cheerful as it is a basement and while it has southern exposure it is still one pretty small so I choose pink for the walls.  Next task will be to move my sewing things back into the room.  I will try to put up some pictures as I get things moved back in.  As for the flooding I will just have to keep an eye on it when we get lots of rain it has only taken on water one other time since we bought our house over 6 years ago so I will be careful to keep items off the floor and out of harms way.

Tonight we carved pumpkins and tomorrow I will roast pumpkin seeds one of my favorite snacks. Happy Halloween.

Oh and just so you all know I have been reading and even occasionally commenting on others blogs even though I have found myself too busy to blog.  So keep up the great blogging all!!!

Kat Von D Make Up

Has anyone else tried the Kat Von D make up line at Sephora?  I so far have two eye liners and one lippy and I would have bought a few more eyeliners if Sephora wasn't sold out at the store.

So why do I like it.  So far it has had great staying power on both the lippy and the eyeliner.

Here are the three pieces that I have.

I have the the Painted Love Lippy in Underage Red love this true and bright red that wears well.

In Eyeliners I have two of the Autograph eyeliner which are both smudge proof.  The also come with their own sharpener in the cap, I love that.

I do not have the above color I instead have the Puro Amor (jet black) and Turbo Lover(eggplant with glitter)

What I would like to get is the tattoo (liquid liner) and the Autograph Liner Black Metal Love (black with glitter). Yes I know glitter is not very vintage but sometimes a girl just likes a little sparkle.

How about you have you tried any of this make up line?  What is some of your favorite make up?
