@Amanda@twitter Get outta town! I'm a January person and I had no idea. To the internets I go, in search of green garnets!

Just hop on the RER A2 - not a chic outfit in sight.

@Amanda@twitter As an almost-three year-resident of Paris myself, I completely agree that Parisien(ne)s can be a bunch of judgy bitches, but I think the real take away from that paragraph is this: "I think the answer, or an answer, is to just get over yourself." When I first lived here I spent SO much energy trying to fit in and be cool and "French" (whatever that meant to me at the time), but eventually I got over it, and myself, and have had a much better time ever since! That doesn't mean that I'm not still intimidated every once in a while by the modelesque french girls with their hair tousled just so and their simple-but-perfect outfits that seem to run this city, but in the long run, there are so many other, better, and more fun things to worry about!

@Amanda@twitter I use a hot pink blush now and it doesn't look clashy (or maybe it does, but it looks natural enough that I can't tell the difference). Before this one, I was definitely using a warm blush and if I had to guess the new one falls into the cool category. I'm not a warm/cool expert but I can say that I liked how both of them looked on my face. Also, it's not like I was creating two huge rouge spots on my cheeks with these bad boys - I definitely used a light hand. So basically what I'm saying is, try it out! I think it'll work!
