fluorescent lights.

thanks to jan, i realized that my camera's white balance was set to fluorescent lights. i did notice a strange icon on the screen, but didn't have time to dig up the manual until now. i'm hoping that was the reason for the bluish tinge i was getting on my photos. so, i have a week's worth of photos to sort thru...maybe some will be salvageable. my apologies for the inconsistent posts this week. for real-time updates, you can catch me mini-blogging on instagram @rockoomph.

i am loving this Covergirl LipPerfection Lipcolor. i have super dry lips that make it difficult to wear any lipstick, but my lips haven't peeled at all today. plus, i've had it on since 8am this morning and haven't had to re-apply at all...
even after lunch and two cups of coffee.
and some edible easter grass.
and some chocolates.

i'm off to color some eggs, hide some eggs, eat some eggs...
have a hoppy easter!

everyday, i've been having some combo
of these trader joe's chocolates...
pareils, cherries, acai berries, and mints.
(top, old navy; skirt, eight sixty (similar)(similar);
shoes, victoria's secret (similar))

what are your plans for the weekend?
any easter traditions?

  2. I have incredibly dry lips too! I'll keep an eye out for this lipstick. How do you tuck your shirt in with no lines in the skirt?

    1. I make the back flat and put the gatherings on the side or towards the front, then tucked it into spanx!! It helped that this shirt was thin, though!

  37. I'm glad you got the camera situation figured out! Once I didn't realize I left the ISO adjusted way high and had an afternoon of horribly gritty photos.. ugh.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Omg you look absolutely stunning! And I have the SAME problem with my lips...it's gotta be the most frustrating thing in the world. Usually my lipstick is coming off shortly after my blog photoshoots for that very same reason! I will most definitely be checking out this lipstick, and I LOVE the color. Adore this shirt too!!! The entire outfit is beautiful.
