The Buried Life

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO BEFORE YOU DIE? -THE BURIED LIFE 
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

IT HAPPENED. IT REALLY DID. 
Meet the Buried Life: David Lingwood, Ben Nemtin, Duncan Penn, Jonnie Penn.
Four guys from Vancouver trying to accomplish 100 things to do before they die, also helping others accomplish goals off their list. Their list includes: Asking out the girl of your dreams (Taylor Swift/Megan Fox), ride a bull, playing basketball with the President, start the six o'clock news, , be in a fight, make a million bucks, streaking a field, and crashing a party at the Playboy Mansion. Again, after they cross something off their list, they help others cross there's. Helping a father and son reunite after 17 years, getting a band signed to a record label, finding a home for a son's homeless father. The list of giving continues.

I have been a massive fan of the project since the beginning, and I had the opportunity to hear them speak as guest speakers tonight.

Holy shit. They are that much better.
Just by hearing their stories and what they have learnt in the past years by living and giving, was such an experience. I had the pleasure of meeting them afterwards, and I just want to love everything about them. They are just four friends that are doing rad shit. But that's the thing, they're just everyday people that would stand in front of you in the grocery line.

Start your own bucket list: write it down- let the dreams be tangible ideas, do rad shit, and just fucking do it.

Be kind to others, give back, and don't be a dick.


"But often, in the world's most crowded streets,
But often, in the din of strife,

There rises an unspeakable desire

After the knowledge of our buried life" -Matthew Arnold

Days Going Out


HOURGLASS AMBIENT LIGHTING POWDER: DIFFUSED LIGHT
SOFT, WARM, PALE YELLOW THAT REDUCES REDNESS, ELIMINATES SHINE AND GIVES CLEAR SKIN 
FIRST AID BEAUTY - ULTRA REPAIR CREAM
NARS - VELVET MATTE LIP PENCIL 

I have developed a problem with Sephora. And here are some of the results:

1. HOURGLASS AMBIENT POWDER: DIFFUSED LIGHT
Yes, I am also judging myself for having now two of these. But after learning you are able to combine all the ambient powders, I went all crazy for that shit. This, apparently, gives off glow and hides your redness. After receiving the yes from Estée (http://www.essiebutton.com) I ran to the closest Sephora and here we are.

2. FIRST AID BEAUTY: ULTRA REPAIR CREAM:
Now this one I blame Ingrid (http://www.youtube.com/user/missglamorazzi) and the stands by the cashier. But here we are, the first/only product from First Aid Beauty in Canadian Sephora. Expect more of this when I rave Sephora in America next week.

3. NARS - VELVET MATTE LIP PENCIL (DOLCE VITA):
My go to lipstick, and seeing that my holidays to the sun is near I have opted for this orange.
These lipsticks are everything, get it and be happy.

I should probably rename this blog: whatisemilyholding.
