Cosmic Dust

I love space stuff. I like to read about space. I like to know watch meteor showers and the like, and I love stargazing. I'd love to be at Kennedy Space Center when there's a launch happening someday! I love going to planetariums and observatories too! So, naturally I love space/galaxy prints. I don't like the patterns to be TOO crazy, but when I saw this Sugarhill Boutique one on ModCloth, I loved it instantly. Purple is my favorite color, and I love that it's the main color in this dress, besides the black, and there aren't too many colors all over the place. It's actually on sale right now, too!





I actually got this dress around Thanksgiving time, but because of all the holiday outfits and whatnot, I didn't get a chance to do a shoot with this dress. I'm kind of glad I waited, though, because I have been wanting bright metallic silver shoes to wear with it and I finally found this pair at H&M for only $12.95 last week.






So I've just started my last semester of my graduate program. I am only taking one class and then I graduate in May! The class is over at the end of April, but I probably won't get my actual degree until May or June. I'm so excited to almost be done. School can be enjoyable, but it's just a pain a lot of the time. I will be so glad to not have that extra obligation on me anymore. It will feel so good to not have to worry about assignments and due dates and discussions ever again! WOO! :D To know that I'll never have to not do something fun because I have a paper due is going to feel amazing.






The makeup I was excited about because I had gotten silver pencil liner to try out for my Christmas makeup, but I ended up liking the super glittery liquid liner better for that. I wanted to do some silvery eye makeup with this dress because silver just reminds me of space in general - the moon, the metal of space shuttles and equipment, space particles, etc. I really like the way the silver liner looked under my eyes. It is a lot more shimmery than I thought! I'm having a lot of fun experimenting more with eye shadows and makeup in general. I'm getting more and more into wanting to play with different colors for both eyes and lips. Limecrime is pretty inspiring for ideas. They are always posting these amazing looks that people create with their products on their social media accounts.






Not much else is new. Winter is sucking. January and February are the worst months, in my opinion. They are the coldest and they're pretty boring. Nothing really goes on since I don't care about football. There's Valentine's Day, which is nice. I just wish it was in a warmer month because it really limits the different kinds of things you can do to celebrate.

I have a Frozen program coming up at the library, which I'm excited about. I think I'm looking forward to it just as much as the kids. I'm going to have them decorate their own Elsa crowns and sing a-long to the songs. We are even having someone who dresses up as Elsa to come in and surprise the kids! It's going to be awesome and I can't wait to see their faces when she walks in. I really love doing programs at the library. It's so fun to plan something that the kids enjoy and love and that creates a little magic for them. :)


  1. so cute ^_^ the tights and make up compliment the (awesome) dress perfectly! At least your space dress will brighten up the winter! The frozen programme sounds like a lot of fun! x

  2. This galaxy print dress is awesome! I love the shades of purple in it. I think I saw it during that sale but went with a couple other dresses. I wish I'd bought it now! I really like the metallic shoes and eye makeup you paired with it. It adds a cool futuristic effect.

    I completely understand your feelings about school being almost over. I graduated from my grad program last May and it was so wonderful being done with the assignments, papers, constant research, and everything that goes along with it. Of course now I've been job hunting since then but... I'm still overjoyed that grad school is over! Good luck getting through to the end!

    So cute! I would love to be a librarian and be surrounded by books, and have ativities to with kids.

  4. i love your outfit! the dress is so cute; i love the print and the shape of it. i also really like your make-up

  5. I love this dress! I received a pair of tights for Christmas with a similar pattern and am trying to figure out how to style them. I love how you paired the silver shoes with this outfit. I may have to go on my own hunt for silver flats. :)

  6. Lol once you are done with school, then you have to worry about work! Work on pointless silly reports, projects, meet deadlines, report to bosses, less vacation time...yea I miss school.

  7. You look like you are truly glowing. I honestly thought this dress lit up from the thumbnail on bloglovin. How neat! You look great in everything.

  8. I love the way you styled this! I actually almost bought this dress, and now I wish I had!
