School Spirit?

Why do I always seem to wear Darin's high school colors?  Royal blue and gold, gag me.  (Can you tell I abhor anything to do with any high school?  It's unjust, I know. I'm scarred.)
Beret: Forever 21
Pin: my Grandma's
Turtleneck: Gap
Jeans: American Eagle
Shoes: Keds (Do you see the stars?!)
Jacket: Nordstrom BP
Cat: Milton

I hope that you are having a wonderful end to your winter.  My cold and bitter heart cannot wait for spring.

Blushing Balmshell

About a year ago, I feel madly in love with blush.  I used to collect shoes, but then lipsticks took over. I don't quite know how it happened, but the magical, transformative nature of THE BLUSH abruptly commandeered my heart.  I now have a stupid drawer full of the addicting stuff.  My face isn't complete without it.  This Instain blush from TheBalm is a newly-acquired friend.  I own one color, and what a color!  "Lace" is like a hot pink punch of flowers to the face.  It is a truly unique color and soft-not-powdery formula.  It is one of my longest-wearing blushes!
Because of its pigmented superpowers, I use a Real Techniques Stippling Brush and gently dot and swirl up the side of my face to my temples.  
TheBalm Instain blushes retail for $22.00 for 6.5 grams of product.  (I scored mine for a mere $11.00 on Hautelook.) As usual with TheBalm, no talc is involved and no animals were tested.
