How to wake up looking like a rock star

It is a proven fact that, after attending a music show, if you have a semi-curly perm and you fall into bed with all of your makeup on and get about 4 hours of sleep, you will wake up looking like Stevie Nicks.

The probability of your getting a pimple on your cheek is also quite high.

The good news is that I didn't need to recreate my smoky eye look for today. I woke up with it.


Last night with The Hounds.

Just a tad because 1. it's either very early or 2. it's very late.


Boots and whiskey.



The Lady of the Lights. At the controls.

Before the show.


I wish I could get paid to blog because then I could lie around at home and tell you all about it. I also wish I could get paid to sleep. I'm pooped.

You looked WONDERFUL!!! Girl I need to go to SF so you can make me look like a rock star! Wish I was there! Wonderful photos!

I have to say that it was a struggle to get my makeup off last night too. However the likelihood of pimples was promised - so I crawled in and did it.

I love the shots - I too wish you could get paid to blog - the world would be happier

Awesome shots, Tangobabe! But where's the one of you looking like Stevie Nicks? ;)

Paris Parfait, it's me...all the lipstick in the world can't make me as glam as the fab TB!

Stevie Nicks-not a bad look per say.

we're gonna need a shot of the stevie nicks look.

me, i'd wake up looking like courtney love...

julochka, unfortunately not only was the Stevie Nicks photo never taken, if it HAD been, it would have never seen the light of day.

Nor should the Courtney Love photo of you if and when the time comes...

Wish you could do something about my look, but I'm settling on acceptance.

Plus, I like Stevie Nicks. You could have woken up looking like Alice Cooper--now that's a problem.

I wish you could lie around and blog blog blog too, 'cause these pics are so fun and we want more more more! We're greedy.

Why haven't I told Red shoes that I am blog crushing on her?! This should be known! From the first pics you shared of her to now. Damn, damn how I wish I were cool!

A kiss for you Red Shoes!

Love those boots - great shot!

Boots and Whiskey is an incredible image. Such fun. I bet you do the Stevie Nicks looks far better than most of us would. But... Can you sing Landslide?

these are incredible. i'm digging the hec out of the whiskey and boots one, my fav though is the late/early looking like a rock star! these were fun to look at...so much action
