Do you want to know what my least favorite thing about beauty and makeup is…? There are so many “rules”. Like, a lot of them. Blondes should wear this…. That skin tone requires that… You’re too pale for that color… Your face is too round for that cut… You guys…I could quite literally go on and on for days reciting every rule that has ever been thrown at me in regard to what I should wear & when I should… Read more »

We were visiting Las Vegas together (who takes a 14-year-old to Las Vegas??) and I spotted the classic black and white storefront from almost a mile away.
