Rebels

Propane anger,

Diamonds on a

Furious turn.

 

Night mists

Fluctuating,

Split nerves

Multiplying

Along glittering

Streets.

 

Rebel roses,

Grave shadows

Overturned

To shifting

Movie frames.

 

Pieces of the

Dream land

Undone,

Swallowed

By poisonous

Fumes beckoning

The seekers

To entangle with.

Throwback Thursday

Here’s to looking back at 2011, when I wrote for a lifestyle/beauty/fashion blog called Lip Gloss Culture based out of NYC.  I had just graduated from Mills College and it was a great first gig.  My Mom Susan Karr, an accomplished writer and editor (Word Suite), showed me the magical Wayback Machine site where I could find prior articles I’d had published.  Here are some beauty posts:

Happy Thursday!

Face

Face of blue,

Coarse thorn

Behind.

 

Lonely

Nothing,

Dripped to

Depression.

 

Mean world

Chugging along,

Pretty things

Torn away.

 

Smoked up

In folly,

Fool’s mirror

To show

A vampire’s

Face.

 

Tracked down

And split,

Sod covered

Over

Wooden

Death

Embankment.

 

Carried along

To

Blackened

Bliss,

Moon shine

A reflector

Upon

What love

Had lain

Down.

Lemon Fresh Sun-In Hair Lightner

My boyfriend and I took a trip to a Walmart around the Oracle Arena area and I found a cheap bottle of Lemon Fresh Sun-In Hair Lightner for $3.48.  Since the Balayage appointment at The Root Salon in Phoenix, I’ve been wanting to lighten my hair much more.  This 4.7 oz. yellow bottle contains aloe, chamomile, marigold, flaxseed, and it’s alcohol free.  Aloe contains antioxidant and healthy plant properties while chamomile treats the scalp.  Marigold takes away dandruff and flaxseed has Omega-3’s and fiber.  After spraying my entire head and combing the Sun-In Lightener evenly through my hair, it really softened the strands immediately while bringing out a honey hue.  You can either blow dry the hair or I find simply giving your hair time in the sun does the trick.  I also like the light lemony fragrance.  Professionals say for getting maximum results, you should spray your hair every couple of days after showering for a summation of three applications.  I’ll post the final reveal soon!
