My Mighty Team of Bellycorn Rides! And Friday

As promised earlier, I drew five additional losers from my last Tom Ford Nude Dip giveaway and will be sending out to each an actual Bellycorn, in shrinky art form.

Do you know that there are all sort of interesting names for groups of specific animals.  Why isn't there a listing for unicorns?  Check out this interesting listing (here).  For a group of horses (not Bellycorn, but close enough): team, harras, rag, and stud.

I send my Bellycorn stud, out into the wooooorrrrlllld!
The recipents of the consolation prizes are:
  • Claire L.
  • Yukari N.
  • Rocaille
  • Annamaria Q.
  • Elle M.
I've sent you all emails!  Please respond to claim your shrinky dinks.  All unclaimed prizes will be baked and then hung up on the Belly family Christmas Tree.
These surprisingly took a lot of work to make! >:(

Beauty Related Things I am Excited About:

  • SURRATT is launching the brush collection next week at Barney's (not sure of the launch in the UK or SG).  Aren't they lovely?  I hope to check these out in person next week.  I actually personally own too many brushes.  One of the reasons't that hold me back from buying additional Chikuhodo ones (though I have been steadily amassing the adorably stubby Artist reds) is I'm overly saturated.  However, I am a true sucker for quality with function that suits me.  I also see what looks like Canadian squirrel (the mottled looking hair) in the eye brushes, so I'd like to really take a look at those.

  • Beauty Blogger Jane C. from Life's Entropy has a new makeup line!  Check out her shop here.  I've purchased the Particle Contouring Stick in Proton (here) as well as samples of the rest of the shade range of this item.  I am also really excited once her reformulated foundation mixers are launched later in the year.  A yellow!  A white!  eeeeee!  Jane Jane!  May I suggest a green for the olive among us?

  • I've revamped the blog with some jazzy *jazz hands* new template from Carries Loves Design Studio with a quick download from etsy.  I'm going to keep on tinkering a bit, but so far I like it!  I hope you also will enjoy the new sleek me.  I hope my html tinkering don't break anything.
I've been really behind on taking pictures, editing, writing.  I don't foresee much improvement in this regard if I can be frank.  (Hello, Frank)  You know, holidays approaching, friends and family visiting, soccer season happening.  :)  I'm doing well and I hope you are, too.

  1. First off, thank you so much for the awesome consolation prize, Belly! Secondly, the new blog design is very snazzy, and I like. Thirdly, the Surrat brushes look amazeballs. I'm in some serious danger here, as I actually lack some specific brush specimens in my collection and could possibly justify a purchase. We'll see on Thursday!

  2. Glad all's well at Bellycorn pastures.
    That Life's Entropy make up! OMG, thanks for the heads up, my science geek brain is imploding from those shade names. And an eyeshadow named Astral Imprisonment? Chain me up!

    1. chain you up! LOL! Jane C's line looks really fun! I can't wait to get my hands on my contour stick and samples. :) I will be glad to have those Bellycorn out of the house. They roam and make glitter poop all over the place.

  3. Nice new design! Very sleek and reader-friendly. Which reminds me that I need to bring my blog design from 2007 into the present day...

    Also, I'm glad to see that the Bellycorns still have visible pubes.

    1. SHHAAAADOOOOWS! That's what they are. a-hem. You know I almost went to an art school. You can't trick me; those are not pubes.

    1. I shall report back fully upon the scuddling of those brushes. They look incredible.

  5. Belly! You were kidding about the tree right? Any unclaimed Bellycorns (there will be none I am sure) shall be sent to other losers, right? *wink wink hint hint* Haha what a demanding loser I am! I just really love that freaking drawing.

    Surratt brushes are also on my wish list, I really need to feel them in person! Lorde (what?) knows the last think I need is another brush ( and I may or may not have just ordered a few from Chikuhodo's new sexy Takumi series http://chikuhodo.com/product/t.html) but dang... those look nice. 100% agree with you on the Candian Squirrel looking e/s ones...

    Re. Jane's new mu line, I just squee seeing those geeky names for makeup :D (I'm a particle physicist.) I really need something called "quark" in my collection dammit! So glad somebody thought of this, and so unfortunate that I would have no use for such a dark shade with my so-pale-it's-almost-green complexion *sad face*. Proton and Neutrino seem like they could be a good fit though, thanks so much for bringing these to my attention!

    Last but not least, new look is looking sleek and I iz loving it. You keep doing what you are doing :) Much love.

    1. Just saw that the particle sticks are safe to use on the eyes too! QUARK SHALL BE MINE!

    2. The Takumi look beautiful, but I think I am maxed out of goat hair. Although, cuddling cute babby goats is always a happy thing. (yum) (who said that?) (!)
      I shall report back, along with some surreptiously taken photographs, while I distract the people at the counter.

      Cat, are you seriously a particle physicist??!!! NO wai! That is awesome. Taking intro physics in math & science high school firmly committed me to a life of liberal hearts. I'm 99% sure that the force that keeps my feet firmly on the ground and makes things fall down from the sky is super glue.

  6. Oh, so over the moon to have won the Shrinky-Bellycorn! Thank you thank you thank you, Belly! :-D We'll turn him into something special at the land. Life's Entropy?

  8. Thank you for my cute Bellycorn! :) I am thinking it will make a nifty badge. Have been eyeing off the cool stuff at Life's Entropy for a while now. Those contour sticks look verrry interesting indeed. Is a review of Proton happening? Please say yes! :)

    1. I must have been under a rock Annamaria! I had no idea Jane had this beautiful line all up and running! I am so excited to have randomly run into it. I can't wait to receive it and yes! I will most definitely put it up on the blog.
