I’ve been playing with the umbrella theme for a layout for awhile. I really like how there is hearts underneath. I need to finally figure out wordpress and make the switch.

I think I want to start collecting Mold-a-Rama’s. I have had a few over the years, but I’ve always lost/broken them. Last time I was at the zoo with R, I got an elephant. I think it would be fun to travel/collect them all.

Also I noticed that Sephora has favorites collections now. A bunch of small sizes of their popluar makeup for less than $40. YAY. I think I am going to get Blinks, Winks & Brows Deluxe Sampler.

The set contains:
– 0.02 oz Sephora Electro Liner Copper
– 0.017 oz Anastasia Brow Gel
– 0.095 oz Anastasia Matte Highlighter
– 0.1 oz Urban Decay Primer Potion
– 0.11 oz Too Faced Shadow Insurance
– 1.7 oz Lancome Bi-Facil Makeup Remover
– 0.25 oz Cosmedicine Opti-mologist Eye Cream
– 0.005 oz Smashbox Mini Cream Eye Liner Palette
– 0.14 oz Stila Mini Smudge Pot
– 0.06 oz Smashbox Mini Eyeshadow Trio in Head Shot

= $40 = yes, yes, yes!

I was looking at this, I thought it was a woman in a costume hanging from the sign. Then I read the text. It’s really shocking that someone captured the last moments of someones life. I wonder when this was taken, the hotels fee seems to be $1 a night… The people on the left of the text box along with the men in the window. They have no idea what’s about to come. I should look into this.


I quickly learned that it is a famous picture from 1942 by I. Russel Sorgi, who worked for the Buffalo Courier Express. It is known as “The Genesee Hotel Suicide” or “The Despondent Divorcee.”

I found that The Genesee Hotel sat at 530 Main Street from 1882 to 1922. Not sure what is there now. Knowing Buffalo and all the wonderful architecture there, it’s probably looks quite similar to this photo. Anyone know? Maybe I’ll remember to check when I’m in the area.

Hotel is still open and going.

+’s: So many books are around. books stacks! Tufted couch! Cute pillows! Candle sticks! Bright windows!
-’s: That table on the left covered with floral fabric with a fringe. CRINGE!

“The serjeant was describing a military life. It was all drinking, he said, except that there were frequent intervals of eating and love-making.”

Dickens; From Barnaby Rudge

However far away
I will always love you
However long I stay
I will always love you
Whatever words I say
I will always love you
I will always love you
