Nailed It!

I was really excited when Jessica of Be Happy and Buy Polish was going to do a nail art guest post for me, especially because I got to use a pun for the title. This nail look is perfect for any Halloween festivities and it seems easy enough that I could even pull it off!

Begonia Sky Presents: A Day in the Life with Short Girl, Tall Appetite

Living with a food blogger is simultaneously the best and worst thing to happen to me. I often come home to a home cooked meal or freshly baked monster cookies. When the deep fryer comes out, that’s when I know I’m in trouble. It means eggrolls are on the way. I’m not saying I’ve eaten eggrolls for every meal multiple days in a row, but I’m not saying I haven’t. Only Thuy Lan knows the answer to that. 

Anyway, without further ado, I'm happy to present the first of many in my new blogger series!

Thuy Lan is a junior studying Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University. When she’s not studying, making news packages or working at a luxury shoe and handbag store, she’s cooking— and then blogging about it. 
This is a day in the life.

Halloween How-To | Cartoon Characters

Last weekend I filmed a Halloween video with Kristen. Most of the items were either thrifted or we already had in our closets. So, I will be bringing you the makeup side of things. I've come up with four really easy makeup looks to go with the costumes.


Begonia Sky is now on Facebook! Go give it a like if you're feeling especially nice!

Halloween How-To | Alien Invasion

It's times like these when I think to myself, "Why do I do this so often?" Especially because I'm still trying to get some green makeup out of my ears. So, I hope you all enjoy this Halloween alien tutorial!

Halloween How-To | Deadly Intentions

I have a tendency to do Halloween makeup throughout the year. Sometimes for fun and sometimes for shoots, but it almost always shocks whomever I happen to be living with at the time.

My parents eventually got used to me walking upstairs looking like a zombie or alien. Now it's my roommate who has to deal with it. She got a bit of a surprise this morning when she walked in to see me looking dead— oops.

It's the first of many looks for my Halloween How-To series. So keep reading if you'd like to find out how I created the look above and stay tuned for more Halloween makeup looks!

Wardrobe Woes

A third of my wardrobe is 1,843 miles away, one third is in a suitcase on my floor. The other third is stuff I barely wear.

My unpacking method after I return from a trip is "leave it in the suitcase for as long as possible" because what if I have to leave again, it'd be so much easier to pack. We all know that's not the case, because I'd just have to take everything out and repack it, but logic apparently has no role in this. So, that leaves most of the contents of my suitcase out of the running.

And now we have my closet. The now very empty closet.

What I Wore Today

It's not quite fall here in Atlanta, nor will it be in Phoenix when I get back. But, I put together a fall-esque outfit anyway.
