How has music changed your life?

So, this also being a music blog. I figured I'd start putting up some songs. The songs I'm going to post is songs that have impacted my life. 

First one is one of my favorite songs of ALL TIME. This is the first song that comes to my mind when I think of ones that have changed my life and/or have an impact. It's like she reached in my soul and wrote down what she found. The part of me only a very very few get to see. It brings tears to my eyes every time.

Evanescence "Breathe No More"
I've been looking in the mirror for so long.
That I've come to believe my soul's on the other side.
All the little pieces falling, shatter.
Shards of me,
Too sharp to put back together.
Too small to matter,
But big enough to cut me into so many little pieces.
If I try to touch her,
And I bleed,
I bleed,
And I breathe,
I breathe no more.

Take a breath and I try to draw from my spirits well.
Yet again you refuse to drink like a stubborn child.
Lie to me,
Convince me that I've been sick forever.
And all of this,
Will make sense when I get better. ----one of my fav lines ever

But I know the difference,
Between myself and my reflection.
I just can't help but to wonder,
Which of us do you love.
So I bleed,
I bleed,
And I breathe,
I breathe no...
I bleed,
And I breathe,
I breathe,
I breathe-
I breathe no more.

Illamasqua's Generation Q Collection

Generation Q is a celebration of beauty. Ageless, and without limits or restrictions. It’s our declaration to the world that beauty is inclusive, not exclusive. In fact, Generation Q is a clear message to everybody, everywhere that beauty is not young, old, black, white, male or female, but anything, everything and everyone. If you’re someone who does not want age to define them, don’t want to blend in and fade away, you are Generation Q.

I am so excited for this collection! It's about being able to wear crazy makeup at any age and race. I love the concept so much! Luckally some of the things will be perm.

MAC cosmetics Marilyn Monroe Collection

MAC For Marilyn

Alright you Marilyn Monroe fans, MAC has made a Marilyn Monroe collection due in October! I love the photoshoot, but wish the packaging looked more sleek and less like they stuck a sticker on the packaging. It's a lot like the Veminous Villains collection packaging from a few years ago. Since It's special packaging the prices are a $1 more than usual.

I'm not too sure what I'm getting from this. Swatches always determine that for me. I think I'll want Love Goddess Lipstick, maybe a couple of the shadows (I love the VP formula!) and the Beauty Powder.  I have been very very choosey on what I get these days as funds are very tight. So I havent been getting much.
