Breeze in August

San Francisco.

What's your season?

According to my instructor,  I'm an autumn.  I'm mostly made up of warm shades: gold-like skin tone, brown eyes, and dark brown hair with reddish undertones.  With my current hair color (magenta/ fuschia), my season is still autumn because I am still warm overall.  

Unsurprisingly,  olive green is the most flattering color on me when it comes to contrast, but when I prefer to not stand out,  salmon is a great blending color.  Most cool colors can wash me out. Sometimes, I have to find ways to balance my cool-tone garments with my warm season.  I did this with my favorite cool white galaxy cat t-shirt and my cream colored cardigan.  Make-up also works great too.  I'll try to keep an update on this color theory exploration, since it is part of my hobby.

What season are you?  Do you know your colors? What are your tricks?  Please share!

Disclaimer:  Your season should not dictate what you should wear,  they  just serve as basic guidelines for finding dominant flattering colors.  Just because your favorite color is not on your list doesn't mean you can't wear it.

Make-Up for Fall 2014

Fall Make-Up

Bare Escentuals eyeshadow / Mac cosmetic / Bare Escentuals eyeshadow / Eye makeup / Shimmery Cocoa Berry Lip & Cheek Tint / Amazon.com : Eye Shadow Green Palette Sea Foam By Zuzu Luxe : Beauty / Fruit Pigmented Lip Glaze Cabernet / Amazon.com : Zuzu Luxe Lipstick Vino de Amor : Zuzu Luxe Red Lipstick... / Fruit Pigmented Lip Glaze Velveteen

I can't wait to try some various greens, teal, and purple eye shadows for the next season!  I think the colors are fitting since there will be loads of red-orange leaves flying around.  

I'm also in favor of the mid 90s'  honey, terra-cotta, raspberry, and burgundy lipstick colors.

Upcoming Eye-Candy Cartoon: Over the Garden Wall

I'm just amazed at some very richly-made cartoons lately, especially with this new cartoon,  Over the Garden Wall.  I noticed there are a lot of warm browns and yellows,  so it made me think harvest season.  Oh, and there's Dixieland music!  The premise looks beautiful,  this cartoon is going on my watch list.

Violet roses and creamy laces

♥ Bar III Dress ♥ Handed- down shawl ♥ Second-hand shoes from Plato's Closet

Note: I know I look a little bulky in this picture, but I really like the way it looks in person...despite my garments having all light colors, there were some contrasts in real life.  Sometimes my outfit don't show up the way I would like in photos.  :\

Another way to wear this Bar III dress

 24- Give us a forest girl inspired vignette! (a short, impressionistic scene that focus on one moment or gives a particular insight into a character, idea, or setting) Don’t fret too hard over it, we’re not all writers by trade, haha.

I decided to venture outside in my lace up boot to smell sage and pine right outside my house. Sure, the sky looked cloudy, but the red-orange leaves falling from the trees gave the scene a warm feel. I can hear rustles and crunches underneath my lace up boots. The fiery-colored leaves covered everything.

 25- What’s your favorite animal and why?

 I want to say rabbit, but at the same time, I don't have one particular favorite animal. I like cats and dogs too. I like ducks and budgies. Oh, and I like turtles.

 26- When you’re out in nature, where do you often find yourself? (in the woods, a lake, river, etc. what’s your favorite spot? describe it for us!)

 I'm pretty spoiled when it comes to visiting lakes, local parks, hiking places, and national parks. I live in a region where it's fairly easy to find hiking areas. I have never been to a lake with no woods and mountains nearby, so I pretty much get everything. There are a lot of creeks around my neighborhood, so it's pretty convenient to go to. My favorite spot is a secret.

New romance movies I'd like to catch soon

♥ Beyond the Lights  What If  Mood Indigo

Since Audrey Tautou starred in Mood Indigo and  Michel Gondry directed the movie,  I really want to see Mood Indigo the most!  It looks like we'll be seeing puppets, yarns, scraps and stop motion stuff-- I'm sure it will be fun to watch! 

Are you guys excited for any of these movies?

Kingfisher by PHOX and this month's random links

I like how very light and earthly this music sounds.  I hope you darlings enjoy this song and these links.

   If you're from the U.S., watch out for fake donations bins-- that is if you care where your items are heading towards to.

   Backyard barbecue ideas.

   A life hack tip on bicycling in skirts/ dresses.  This is handy if you're a stylish person who bikes.

♥   Cute baby swans piggy back riding on their mommy.

♥   Reading/ watching too much bad news can add stress.  This research doesn't surprise me, I know I would get sick from reading too much bad news.   If keeping in touch with daily news is part of your job, just look at pictures of cute animals to keep you in balance.  How do you guys handle stress?

   I want to try this recipe: strawberry rhubarb  sorbet in an ice bowl.  This would make a perfect summer dessert.

   TwinkieChan's knitting tutorials.

♥   While I know there are plenty of cat sweaters for cat people, there is a sweater for bunny people too.  Are you a bunny person like me?  What's your favorite animal?
