THE B(LAKE) GAZETTE

My sister stays in the paper so much, I'm going to start calling it the Blake Gazette. Congrats to the Region 8-AAAA Champs!!!!!

Published Wednesday, October 21, 2009

After watching her last two volleys meet the net, even Blake Banner was surprised to see the ball set her way again. Mind you, Beaufort High's first outright region title since 1989 was on the line and with the Eagles locked in a 27-27 tie with Summerville in the decisive third game, an exhausted Banner knew she had no more room for error. 
So the senior hitter took a more cautious approach, punching the ball flat-footed into a hole in the Green Wave formation. And when Summerville's Elizabeth Miler drew a controversial line violation on game point, Banner and the Eagles finally could breathe easy after a roller-coaster win during Tuesday's home tri-match that included Hilton Head High.

THINKING OF A MASTER PLAN


I haven't blogged in a minute, but I should be. Just been busy brainstorming and planning. Soooo, I'm thinking about starting a jewelry line. I mean, I already make a lot of my own stuff and people always ask me where I get my accessories from. Might as well create my own line! Right now I'm coming up with sketches and samples so hopefully within the next few weeks I can share with the masses. The line will be called 'Knew 11' (FYI - eleven, not one-one). Tell a friend!

TRYING TO STAY BUSY

It seems like I go through phases where my life gets pretty quiet. It's these times where I try to keep myself occupied and entertained to prevent being extremely bored and/or overly nostalgic. This weekend I skipped on the fabric stores, but went vintage shopping. The only thing about vintage/thrift shopping is that it requires patience and you really have to be in the mood to do it. Although I didn't find all that I'd hoped to, I scored a couple things:

Some awesome sunglasses and a fly 80's mesh dress. I'm such a cool kid. LOL! While walking from store to store I ran across a makeup boutique and of course I had to check it out. They had some brands I wasn't familiar with and ended up buying some powder/pigment from this brand called FACEatelier. It's a Canadian based company and I have to say the quality of this makeup is superb! I did a short vid talking about it that i'll probably post later. I also found the MAC Night Violet lipstick that has been sold out EVERYWHERE. Hand claps for me.
Sundays are always my lay around a be a bum day. Let me go continue being that bum.

I CALL B.S.



I know Tourette syndrome is a real disease, but the stuff these kids are saying....MAKES ME WONDER. Its funny, but it's not. IDK how it is in the UK, but one of those kids is gonna get a serious beat down if they keep it up. They better walk around with a sign that says "I have Tourettes"

PICKUPS

Houston, I have a problem. Hey, at least its not a drug addiction. Oh, and the day I go broke buying make-up will be the day I volunteer for a straight jacket. Anywhoooo....I proudly present the newest members to my massive makeup collection:

Pink Opal
I saw how someone incorporated this into a lipstick and I was sold. I'm already a big fan of pigments, my only issue is the price. Although you get 7.5g, $19 is a bit steep. They last forever that's why I've decided to only buy colors in pigments from MAC that I can use for pretty much everything. This is one of them. I'm actually wearing it as a highlighter under my brow today. Awesome.

Show Orchid
Wow. Now this is bright. I've always been a big fan of color so for me this is creme de la creme. I'll probably tone it down a bit with other colors if need be, but this is probably the brightest pink I've seen. Oh, I will be wearing it this fall. Go hard or go home. :-)

Rebel
This was a last minute pick for me. My main reason for going to the MAC store was actually to purchase a purple lipstick which they didn't have in stock. Ok, on to the next one! I tried on a very dark color (Cyber) and although it was purple, it reminded me more of black. Not exactly what I was looking for. For some reason Rebel stood out to me and I tried it on. Although it wasn't purple, it had potential lol. Since I'm a firm believer of making something out of nothing, I figured I'd pick it up and work with it. I'm glad I did (post comin later on that :-P)

Extra Amps Dazzleglass
This was an impulse by b/c I am a sucker for shiny things. The dazzleglasses sparkle like nobodys business and they look extra fly over lipstick/lipglasses. Next dazzleglass purchase - baby sparks.

*edited to add:


Oh boy! *jazze pha voice. The End.

P90X

I made the conscious decision to tone up and stay in shape this fall/winter. This is usually the time most people slack off and get comfortable, not to mention the countless holidays that involve tons and tons of food. I'm not trying to be one of the many with the cliche 'lose weight' New Years Resolution. I've been doing P90x for about a week now and OMG. I have not been this sore/tired in a looong time. You know from the first day the exercises are working b/c you can FEEL it. Unlike most people I'm not putting up before and after pics, but I will track any changes in my measurements. Although it's painful, I'm actually looking forward to completing the first month just to see the progress. Yay!

ALL BLACK EVERYTHING



Fun, fun! My first time wearing "Tina Knowles Red" lipstick (that's what I call it, but it's actually 'M.A.C Red', haha). I've always been a little intimidated by bold red lipstick b/c if you don't wear the right shade you end up looking crazy IMO. Luckily, I found a perfect shade for my complexion and fell in LOVE w/ it. I think i'll be wearing it more often :-).BTW - I made my leggings. Modeled after Rodarte leather leggings ($920.00):


 my DIY ($9.20) *
Voila!

*It was prob a lil more than $9.20 considering the supplies and time it took, but hey, it looks good. LOL


After being 'Tardy for the Party'*, we woke up early the next morning for a 5K walk/run to raise money for Breast Cancer Research. I was hurting, but it was all for a very good cause. Out partying til 4am, but up at 8am for community service/awareness. Now that's gangsta! :-)

*LMAO @ that song. I'm going to make a song called "Renig on the Wig" and dedicate it to Kim. Let me copywrite that before somebody steals my idea.

BAG-O-SCRAPS


If you didn't know, I am a huge American Apparel fan. Recently they started selling Bag-O-Scraps. Hey, why not make money off leftovers. Usually I would roll my eyes at a company doing this, but they have some of my fav patterns so I had to buy. I consider myself pretty original and unique so I figured I could make something out of whatever I got. So far....

I've created a necklace and a crop top. Now fall is not the ideal time to sport a crop top, but I can always throw it over something. The necklace I LOVE. It's a braided hot pink necklace. When I say hot pink, I mean BRIGHT.

(closeup)

I'm just getting started as I have PLENTY scraps left. I might just order another bag just to see what randomness I get. Yayyyyyy! LOL
