If you have visited our site before, you might be wondering where the background and formatting have gone. We just updated our website and, alas, the original theme was no longer compatible with the rest of our website. We are looking for a new theme, but for now, I get to make lots of terrible jokes about how I don’t have much of a background as a website designer…..get it??? Background???? Ha!! Sorry 🙂 In the meantime, our website is perfectly functional despite its minimalist look. Thanks, as ever, for your many indulgences.
Wishing you all a delightfully spooky, fun, and beautiful holiday!!
I’m so happy to be running a workshop this Sunday evening (6pm) at this year’s GEARCon!! Thanks to all the event runners and organizers who let me sign up at the last minute. Here is some copy:
Resurrect another Dead Cosmetic with Kim Damio of Portland Black Lipstick Company. This year, we’ll be re-creating a mid-Victorian era violet-scented powder and (as usual) attendees will be able to take a small quantity home free of charge. Learn why violet powder contains noactual violets!! Let the story of the violet powder poisonings of 1878 chill your blood!! Hear the melancholy story of Violet Powder’s descent into modern day obscurity!! Join us and smell fabulous!!
Here is a link to the event for all the particulars:
This weekend is Blush Beauty Bar’s 14th birthday celebration!! There will be special offers, free gifts with purchase, delicious snacks, and the chance to visit with the lovely people who run Blush and reps from multiple local and independent makeup brands. I’ll be there on Saturday to rep PBLC, so please stop by if you can and we’ll chat about lipstick & glitter!! For the event particulars, please click on the image below:
Happy Halloween and a big ‘Thank You’ to everyone who helped make our Halloween Season (and the entire year, so all holidays all the time, really…) so fun and fabulous!!
