A Touch of Gold + ShopBevel
______One of the lovely ladies from ShopBevel sent me this neat studded ring from their newest designer collection, "A Touch of Gold," that launched today. ShopBevel is an online jewelry trunk show that works with independent designers to make unique designer jewelry affordable to everyday peasants such as ourselves. They add new designers frequently, so it's easy to check back and always stumble across a new treasure. In addition, ShopBevel lets the community vote on what designers they would like to see, and as we all know, having a choice in the outcome of things is always lovely. Always!
______That being said, if you guys see anything you're totally into at ShopBevel, you can use the code DRAWINGMANNEQUIN for 25% off your entire order!
______In other news, I am wearing lipstick here. Really bright lipstick. Bright pink. It's aptly named "Brazen Berry," which is exactly what it makes me feel like--a very bold, tiny fruit, one wandering aimlessly in a world of larger and more intimidating fruits. I'm almost certain the color was made by liquifying Barbie and reshaping her into a stick. Many Barbies were probably sacrificed to make this shade of lipstick. For shame, Maybelline. For shame.
______But I'm getting away from the point--I've wanted to wear lipstick for a while now, even if it's just a nuance different from my bare lip color, but I'm always afraid of the looks people may give me (and have given me). Whether these are looks have been looks of approval or dissaproval, I am unsure, but I'm not always the most confident person, even though my writing may indicate otherwise. It's so much easier to be confident and outgoing on the Internet when you wear your screen like a guise. But soon, I will overcome my shyness and blossom into the brazen berry that I was born to be. Soon, I will conquer not only earth and its inhabitants, but a tiny tube of obnoxiously bright lipstick.
______Be brave out there, my citizens. This world shows no mercy.
