I arrived in Florida, on Wednesday. There is limited internet access, but I will try to keep my routine, with daily updates. My computer is about to die and I don’t have the charger, so here are just a few of the photos from my last day in New York (until the 8th! goodness gracious):

A few people have called this the amazing technicolor dreamcoat. I was the narrator in our high school musical, so maybe it’s just nostalgia that drew me to it?

vintage coat – thrifted
maroon tights – payless
boots – payless
bag – nine west
mustard shirt – f21
vintage, double breasted, maroon cardigan (can’t really see it) – thrifted
vintage beret – from my mom’s store
not visible – navy, full mini skirt

Bobby and the wee ones are back in New York. I wish they were here! My mom has several furry friends to keep me company. I am currently accompanied by two pups (Chloe and the new chihuahua, Chobee – I’m trying to change his name) and two hairless rats (Bubbles and Socks). So, I guess she has more than just furry friends.

More photos, a little later. We spent my last day shopping, eating and walking around the city. Bobby pelted me with several snowballs, but I got my revenge. I’m enjoying the warmer weather, but there’s nothing like a little snowfall to get you into the Christmas spirit. Of course, it wouldn’t hurt to have a tree as big as Rockefeller’s, either.

  1. Hi Keiko! I have been reading your blog for a couple of years now, but have never been able to comment since I don’t have an LJ account. I have to say that the thing I love most about your blog is your photos! They’re absolutely amazing and have a beautiful crisp quality to them. I have a Nikon D40x and some how I can never get my pictures to look quite as good as yours despite playing with the ISO, white balance, and all the other settings. I’m sure others have asked you this before, but I would love to see you do a photography tutorial, just like your makeup ones! I just can’t manage to get that saturation of color like you do and I would love any tips that you have!

    Thanks and Merry Christmas!

  2. In addition to mentioning how awesome that coat is, I’d like to say the Smashbox primer is effin’ fantastic! I rode my bike for 6+ hours, today, and my face still felt flippin’ glorious 12 hours after putting it on.

    So, anyway, fact: You really do know a thing or two about makeup. And I sure am grateful for it.

    P.S. I added your link to my blogroll on my blog. (Am I speaking in the right terminology?) I’m not asking that we trade links, as the hip kids say, I just wanted to let you know.
