Also were any of you guys avid readers of The Clique series? If so, how insanely upset and/or jealous were you when you found out glossip girl’s monthly lip gloss wasn’t a real thing???
Yes. And very.
Lipstick Lundi: M.A.C. Viva Glam 1
GUYS. I did it. I found my perfect dark red. It didn’t even take that long. Hunting for the perfect shade can be a chore because colour is so subjective and what can be read as blue red by one person looks brick red to another. I was always adamant about the lack of berry tones, just because I have too many dark berry lipsticks already, including Rimmel Kate Moss 107, which I love.
I love the smell of M.A.C. lipsticks - that subtle vanilla scent is so reassuring, without being overly sweet or sickening. M.A.C. counters are also less intimidating than Sephora because everything is the same brand and I know roughly what to expect and I find that the sales associates tend to be much more friendly. Sephora doesn’t really set the bar too high when it comes to friendliness of Sales Associates though - I’ve gotten better service from hungover drive-thru attendants. It’s great being able to roll up to any M.A.C. counter and saying “Yo, I need a dark red. Help me. Please.”
Which is exactly what I did when I was in Texas. I like buying nice lipsticks whenever I travel, because they hold more sentiment than tacky mugs or souvenir photo frames. When I was little, I would purchase a Beanie Babie on each trip, and then promptly rip the tags off them because young Kennedy had no interest in resale value, smh. Who amongst y’all thought that they were going to pay for their retirement once those things hit mint?
Nooooot that dark, right? Crap. I like it, as a slightly darker version of my favourite Russian Red, but it isn’t quite dark enough. I don’t mind hunting for another darker tube of lipstick though, as this one is a Viva Glam shade which means that every cent of the sale is donated to M.A.C.’s own fund to support men, women, and children living with AIDS. Buying charitable goods is self-congratulation at its finest - but M.A.C. has been doing this quietly for years, so I’m telling the cynical side of me to shush.

Anonymous said: question for sofie: where did you get your glasses? (sorry if you've answered this before)
No worries! My glasses are actually just regular old Ray Bans. I got them at LensCrafters, but I want a new pair since my insurance is back and I CAN DO THAT. WOOO.

At this rate, I’ll have no hair left. But it feels so soft.

I Dyed My Girlfriend’s Hair Blue
This was a great idea because the very next day, she went job hunting.
Anyway, here’s how to dye hair blue.
Step 1: Get someone else, preferably someone who knows how to bleach hair, to bleach it. Seriously, I don’t know how to do this. I am very afraid to bleach my own hair on my own, and I feel like I would ruin this. However, if you have darker hair, you should bleach it more than once to get the desired white colour if you plan on doing light shades. But that’s obvious. Anyway, Julia’s (bae) friend only bleached it once so it was like, golden yellow when we started to dye it. But whatever.
Step 2: Wear gloves and clothes you don’t care about.
Step 3: APPLY VASELINE OR JELLY OF SORTS AROUND THE EARS AND NECK. Seriously, Manic Panic stains like a beyotch.
Step 4: Lather the dye. It’s pretty basic from here on in. Make sure you spread the dye evenly and get it everywhere. Otherwise you’re just gonna have weird non-dyed patches that could potentially look cool but probably might also look weird.
Anyway, we left the dye on for about 45+ minutes, which is what the tub of dye suggested, but it might have been longer because we got distracted.
In the time that’s passed, she’s cut it and the colour has faded a little bit. This was just an experiment, I guess.
I’m doing my hair purple/pink soontimes and I’ll keep you guys posted on the process, since I had red hair for a while and underneath my current dark dye are a lot of red undertones, which are very difficult to bleach out and remove. But my friend Steph says she can do it. So. I mean. More hair adventures with Sofie, isn’t that what we all love?
