So… I have a confession.
I am a beauty addict.
No shit, right?
I spend entirely too much money at Sephora and Gene Juarez and… I love it. As a kid and a teenager I felt like an awkward duck; Always trying to fit in but hopelessly missing the mark. I felt ugly, strange and like I didn’t belong. Beauty and fashion are a way for me to blend in but also stand out, visibly. On a very profound level, it makes me feel normal because I can look normal but extremely polished. When I’m falling apart, nothing matters more than appearing better than okay. Fabulous, even.
For the sake of entertainment and my own sick pleasures I am going to lay my collection out for the world to see what goes into my every day presentation of myself.

To me, that is worth it.
