The Great Canadian Potato (Am I a Food Genius?)

I just took a baked potato out of the fridge, split it and half, and poured maple syrup on it. ¬†Starchy and sweet, it’s a delicious oddity. ¬†I call it: The Great Canadian Potato.

The Great Canadian Potato

Ingredients:

  • 1 Potato
  • Some maple syrup
  • Bacon bits(?)

Instructions:

  Take a baked potato and cut it in half.  You can either serve it warm or serve it chilled.  Pour maple syrup on top. Add any other condiments on top, I think some bacon bits would be great.  And there you have it: The Great Canadian Potato!

I’m Opening an Art Gallery Posthumously

I have a growing number of self-portraits, with myself dressed/styled in an androgynous/masculine way. ¬†I wonder, when I die, how will people interpret that? ¬†I often think about all of the sketches and works I’ll leave to be found, after I die, and what will happen to them. ¬†Maybe they’ll only become worth something when I can make no more? My Ego can only hope!

HananThis is part of an old drawing with felt-tip pen, chalk pastels, and pencil that turned out to have creepy eyes. ¬†Inspired by china dolls, Directoire Fashion Riding clothes, and, you guessed it, androgyny. ¬†It was just a ¬†fashion sketch anyways…(I took a cruddy picture with a camera, as I don’t have a scanner)

How to Use Cream Eyeshadow or Eyeshadow Primer as Lipstick

It was pure serendipity! ¬†I did some experimenting with my makeup and figured out a crazy-awesome trick. ¬†I really love matte lipstick because it (should)stays on a long time. On a whim, instead of lipstick, I used Avon’s eyeshadow primer on my lips. I got this cool supermodel/androgynous affect, I think I looked¬†amazing. ¬†On top of that, it stayed put all day–even after I drank coffee, water, and had a snack. This stuff is better than any lipstick I have ever used! Dear Avon: start making bright red eyeshadow primer so that I can then use it as lipstick.

How to Use Cream Eyeshadow or Eyeshadow Primer as Lipstick

  1. Get a creamy eyeshadow or eyeshadow primer that matches your skintone and some lip balm.
  2. Put a very light layer of lip balm on your lips, especially if they are dry.
  3. Get some eyeshadow/eyeshadow primer on the tip of your finger and spread it across your lips. Make sure it doesn’t glob up in the creases of your skin.
  4. Pat your lips¬†firmly¬†with your finger, apply more eyeshadow or primer to finger, if needed, to pat on top of the first layer.¬†¬†Make sure it doesn’t glob up in the creases of your skin!

Ever since I bought the eyeshadow primer, my makeup routine has completely changed for the better. Before, I wouldn’t wear much eyeshadow, usually using a beige-y pink creme eyeshadow for a nice “nude” look(thanks, Mary Kay, for getting me into cream eyeshadow). ¬†Now, I can use the primer, and then go wild with dramatic colours and designs. I feel like a makeup artist!

As a side note: I am not being payed or sponsored by anyone or any company to write this.  This is a 100% real and 100% honest makeup recommendation from me, your buddy from The Internet! So there!
