    Happy Easter

  2. You are really inspiring!

    "If you believe in it, makeup has a magic all it's own. " --the makeup artist, Sooner or Later (TV movie)

    Awesome post. Coming to major interest and learning makeup and fashion relatively late in life, it is like play.

  4. Poppy, this has been 30 days of magic. Can't wait to see where you go next!

  5. A good reminder. Playing is not my forte. It never was and I wish it could be. I think I need a swift kick on the derrière sometimes. Love all the colors and the sense of fun, Poppy! R. x

  6. "Clothes and makeup are Legos and finger paint for grown-ups." how cool is that! :-D

    woke up after dream about nail-polish, I had to decide over some purples and muted purples.

    lets play!

  7. Love this post. Am adding you to my blog roll.

  8. I am loving this post! Now I have a new excuse for my husband when my next J-Crew package arrives!! "Honey, they're just my LEGO's!".
