Till the Break(ing) of Dawn

Holy hell I had so much fun as the night turned to morning for Portland's best Breaking Dawn party. I MC'd all night & enjoyed watching 400 teenagers dance in the streets & literally howl with joy over a book. Books folks! Yes indeed some young adults actually care about reading! I love it! Personally I'm 300 pages into the final tome of the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer and there are shocks to be had. All I can say so far is that Bella drinks blood. Make of that what you will.

Now I fully admit there are aspects of the Twilight books I don't like. I think they're racist on some levels that makes it difficult for me to not feel kinda bad for reading them anyway (guess we all have fed our internal racism at times). I think that's why it was so important for these kids to have a brown face host the party. And that's only one of many reasons I was happy to emcee. Here's are some pics from Bella's Ball.

I wish my make up would show up better. But just in case you want to know, a great place in Portland to have your face done is at Blush Beauty Bar. And on the first Friday of the month the cost of getting your face done goes towards product rather than a separate charge on all other days. I purchased some really wonderful mineral face powder that leaves my skin looking really even & natural. And the gal who did my face for Friday was super & you might want to visit her if you need a wedding photographer.
