Kat Von D and Too Faced Collab Announced on Instagram

Kat Von D had me years ago at tattoos. Black ink, portraits, hard core amazing art. Then she got me again with her makeup line. I've been addicted to her Shade + Light Face Contour Palette since November and can't stay away from the rest of the Kat Von D Beauty line. About a week ago she made forget about the NYX store opening I missed when she posted THIS:

Rebel Challenge Recap Part 2: Star Wars Half Marathon

Rebel Challenge Recap Part 2: Star Wars Half Marathon

The night before the Star Wars Half Marathon I did something I've never done before. I know that switching up your routine before or during a race is (in theory) never a good idea but I like to test myself and I've never had an issue. So the night before the Star Wars Half, after an amazing dinner of "Walt's Favorite" Homemade Meatloaf at Carnation Cafe, I left Disneyland at about 7:00 pm. I went back to my hotel room and I did the unimaginable.

Rebel Challenge Recap Part 1: Star Wars 10K

Falling asleep the night before the Star Wars 10K was impossible. I blame Sir Elton John. My Friday went from the Star Wars 5K to the Lilly Belle to Club 33 to watching Sir Elton John perform live in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle. Seriously. It was like a dream and I was too excited to sleep. I STILL have goosebumps!

runDisney Star Wars 5K Recap

My first race of Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend was the Star Wars 5K. Not part of the Rebel Challenge, the Star Wars 5K is an untimed family fun run through the parks. The race started dark and early Friday morning at 5:30 AM. I was excited to take my new Garmin Forerunner 230 for a spin! Yes, I would be following doctor's orders and walking, but I was still excited to start this journey to recovery on the right track.

David Bowie: Starman Star Wars Playlist

David Bowie: Starman Star Wars Playlist

I woke up this morning devastated by the news of David Bowie's passing. A huge fan of his artistry, David Bowie has been part of the soundtrack that is my life since I was a little girl. A true Starman, Bowie was not of this world. His genius, bold creativity and brave experimental artistry will live on, but I will miss him. A true icon, he inspired me in every facet of style, identity and sound.

Injury Update: The (Long and Winding) Road to Recovery

Injury Update: The (Long and Winding) Road to Recovery

Ending 2015 with knee injuries was the bitter icing on what had already been a pretty unsavory cake. I spent all of 2015 struggling to come to terms with the loss of my brother, treading an unhealthy line between not caring about anything at all and obsessively worrying about my living loved ones. When I hurt my left knee early in the year (exercise related) I didn't care enough to deal with it or my HMO, so I powered on. But when I hurt both knees badly at the Avengers Half Marathon in November, I knew I would have to succumb to the horrors of my HMO and begin my physical recovery.
