Yes I should’ve had this posted last Tuesday, but as blogging isn’t my full-time job and last week was hectic, today will have to do.
Our blog had the pleasure of being nominated for Best In Style & Fashion at the Yeggies which took place on Friday May 9th. “Yeg” is the abbreviation for Edmonton which is the city I live in. The Yeggies “is an awards show designed to highlight some of the amazing talent we have here in Edmonton — from people who code websites themselves, to those who write, speak, draw, all on their own time. Yeggies recipients inspire, evoke, inform, educate and entertain us, and they do it because they have a passion for it.” (Taken from the Yeggie website.) So a Yeggie is a social media type of award.
Unfortunately we didn’t win, but I went to the awards show on behalf of Zeke. Even though I tried to convince the organizers of the show that my co-blogger would be on his best behavior and is already wearing a tux, they wouldn’t bend the rule of “no dogs allowed.” Also I got sooooooo many compliments on my outfit. Maybe it was because I was the only one wearing a jumpsuit? This surprised me as jumpsuits are a great alternative to pants, skirts, or dresses. They are everywhere this spring so why not try one yourself?
I wanted to look great and create a peacock inspired eye so I broke out my never used Stila Daydream Eye Shadow Palette.

I headed over to Pinterest and used the following photo as inspiration to create my peacock eye:
I’m bummed out that I didn’t take close-up photo of how it turned out, because it looked great! This photo will have to do:
Another thing I am bummed out about is that I totally forgot to take a full-length shot of my outfit. So I threw my outfit on today and got some shots of it. They will all be headless as I’m
too lazy not willing to do my hair and make-up again.
And now for some shots from The Yeggies:
My good looking Bugsmand and I.
