About me

Gender Female
Location Darien, IL
Introduction I'm going to college for nursing but I SHOULD have done makeup or some art...I chose nursing since I said forget being a starving artist. I love makeup and DIY things. I'm huge into accomplishing something without spending loads of money/time - that's just an excuse though. I think the real reason is because I appreciate the creativity that goes into finding an alternate route to reach the same destination (being more efficient and saving a couple bucks are just bonuses ^__^).

I really love to prettify people/things whether it be myself, others, or things around me. I've always found beautiful people fascinating. This has been a constant question on my mind - WHAT is it that makes someone beautiful? Hair? Eyes? Geometry of their face? Effort? Don't get me wrong - there is FAR more to life than beauty. But I've struggled to understand this my entire life. This blog - along with other tips, tricks, and random ramblings - is dedicated to this subject.

Other facts: I'm oldest of 4 kids, Catholic, and Polish. I have a black cat named Delilah. And I was an extra for the movie "Witless Protection".

PS: I can't tell a short story.

(Example: "Let it Rock" by Kevin Rudolf is one of my all time favorite songs. But it's probably the ONLY song I enjoy by Kevin Rudolf). I decided to list the artists who the majority of their songs appeal to me. Also if you go here it's a pretty good combo of my favorite songs:, http://www.playlist.com/playlist/2614375179
