Lately I have been so busy! I started my pace summer classes so that is taking up so much time, but not only that I started a new job. So far I’ve been doing good and I just wanted to let you all know.
With this new job I am working full time and I am able to actually dress up for it. I really want to show you all what I am wearing for it since I’ve been really into style and fashion lately. I hope I’ll be doing a haul soon since I bought some new shoes and I just want to show you all what I bought. Don’t expect designer though since I have like zero spending cash right now. I need to get that paycheck.
I am thinking of trying some fashion subscriptions, anyone know of any they recommend, I’ve tried Golden Tote and love it but I am just wondering if there are any others.
I don’t use Facebook very often, but since I don’t live around all my family anymore I scroll through it every once in a while to check on things. Once I’ve seen how my cousins kids are, find out whose engaged and where this person ate I then start to hit that section of Facebook that makes me regret opening the social media app in the first place.I
You know that dark back alley of Facebook that leads to Animal Abuse, Fist Fight videos and Political views that make me want to rip my hair out. It’s that not so special place that sky rockets my anxiety and stress and makes me loose faith in humanity. I know that I could block it, but I get sucked in and by the time I realize to do it I am so mentally drained that I just shut it all down.
I SHUT IT ALL DOWN.
Really I should delete it, but it’s how I communicate with some people. When you live a couple of states away from your family and friends that I can’t really afford to delete it. That’s what makes me hate it so much, that I want to delete it but I can’t and Grrr….
Thats really the only way I can describe myself after thinking about Facebook.
Sorry about the not posting but planning a trip in a day, then packing, Making sure the animals are taken care of took priority over scheduling my blog posts. Oh, where did we go? Well back home to California, with a pit stop in Vegas. My bestie graduated this weekend and last minute we got confirmation that we can go.
Wow was it the best and worse experience of this year.
First off, halfway on the drive down to Vegas the hubby got sick suddenly, fever, exhaustion, and nausea hit all at once and I had to take over the long weary drive while he passed out in the passenger seat.
Secondly the hotel was not the best hotel that we checked into. Now I don’t usually stay at 5 star hotels because of budget but this was a 2 at best, but honestly what did we expect when your on a budget and need a hotel room in 2 days in Vegas, you can’t be picky.
We then got up very early in the morning to make the long drive to Southern California where we visited the Parents. We then attended the party where I may or may not have acted appropriately, but it was amazing to see all my friends and act like I don’t like 14 hours away.
We then took the long drive back to Vegas where we passed out. When we awoke the next morning it was my turn to be sick so much so that I immediately passed out when we came home and did not get up until 6:30 the next day.
This weekend was a freaking whirlwind….
Everyday I wake up to a tiny grey paw in my face..
This is Mordechai my grey tiger striped tabby cat. He is hungry and wants food now. I roll myself out of bed and get him a can of his digestive health wet food. Tesla then comes bolting out of the bedroom because ‘How dare mommy not pay her attention first’ she then, after scolding me, waits patiently by the back door to be let out for her morning bathroom break. After they are settled and fed I proceed to make myself a couple cups of coffee in our old school coffee maker.
Our Keurig decided to quit and walked out on me.
I have to be careful when making my coffee. I only allow myself two cups, since that one time I drank a whole pot and felt like I wanted to puke and simultaneously run a 5k without stopping. I then load two pieces of white bread into my toaster that is on it’s last leg. I have a feeling he’s going to join the Keurig soon. After I butter my toast and poor my coffee into my husband’s mug.
I am forbidden to use this mug but I continue to do so because I have my rebellious reasons, I may be 30 but I need my stubborn child side sometimes.
I then settle down to either do one of two things.; I read or type a blog post. This morning blogging won out as I have some motivation and I refuse to let that leave me. Since I’ve decided to write four blogs I need to make sure that take every opportunity presented to me. When this is done I browse Instagram for a while until I am ready to take my shower and dress.
Then it’s time to start running errands.
What do you do on the morning of your day off?
I don’t know if you know this about me but I am a huge star wars fan. I have seen the movies (yes even the freaking prequels) probably hundreds of times. I constantly am buying Star Wars merchandise. I even have the books!!!! So I am upset that I cannot properly stay at home, wear my wookie onesie and binge watch all the Star Wars movies while drinking Champagne and eating Neapolitan Ice cream. I will be working….
When I was younger I used to have dreams of being a Jedi, I still dream but this time I may or may not be a Sith instead (the darkside has cookies!!!) While I am at work I will be most likely day dreaming of making my own light saber, Looking up at the twin suns of Tatooine or having my very own Ewok tribe friends (although they are cannibals soooo….) Anyway I’m rambling What I really wanted to say was
HAPPY MAY THE 4TH!!!!
MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!
It’s been so rainy here lately, yet also surprisingly sunny. Weather is weird, maybe it’s the whole spring thing in a new state that actually has seasons! Anyway I just got my Sephora play box and this month’s theme is STEP IT UP! Which is what I actually have been trying to do lately!
Just like always the box comes with a a cute little bag. I really like this bag and the fact that it says ‘The Best Things in Life are Me!’, very motivational.
I’ve surprisingly have been running out of moisturizer lately so I got this Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream. Can I just ask what is all these super long names for products lately? I’ve never used this brand before so I am excited to use this.
While I need moisturizer, I really don’t need facial cleansers. I’ve actually never have used Philosophy before, mostly because it is a bit out of my price range. This Made Simple Face Cleanser is suppose to be good and gentle for sensitive skin.
I have like five of these little Iconic Photo Finish Foundation Primer from Smashbox. Please stop sending them to me, I cannot use them fast enough. I DONT NEED ANY MORE.
Make Up Forever is one of my most favorite brands so I am happy to have gotten this Aqua XIL Eye Pencil Waterproof Eyeliner. I am definitely going to use this on my waterline on those dramatic days.
Sephora Collection Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover is something that I am not sure that I would be using considering that I got that make up remover cloth. Plus this seems like it has oil in it.
I’m actually pretty excited to smell this as I have never used a miu miu product before. L’Eau Bleue is suppose to have hints of Lily of the valley and honeysuckle.
Overall I really liked this month’s box and bag. What do you think?
Happy Bunny Day!
So, I think I may be addicted to candles and amazing scents! I got these two beauties from Ross recently when I went looking for some cheap work clothes. After smelling what they had in stock I settled on Pink Pear and Easter eggs (which is the one burning in the background while I am writing this). Pink pear is suppose to have a bunny on top of it but due to the girl improperly wrapping it and my careless handling the ears broke off.
Since my time is limited, it means I have limited time to relax. With candles I can create a relaxing atmosphere even if I am in the middle of doing something, like blogging.
So as you all know recently I went to Sephora for some birthday shopping for myself and as Sephora does they give you a Birthday gift when you are a beauty insider. The Birthday gift was 2 Tarte products; Amazonian clay 12- hour blush in paaarty and Tarteist creamy matte lip paint in birthday suit.
The blush is a pretty pink nude, which is perfect for me as any blush that is too pink or red makes me feel like a clown. It’s pigmented pretty well and seems to go on smooth. I will definitely use it.
This lip paint is creamy, however I am not sure I love the color. While it matches the blush on my lips it may wash me out. Also I am a bit worried about the staying power of the lip paint.
I am happy that I was able to pick this as it gives me a chance to try both products
So I know this isn’t very good thing to do, you have to love yourself, think highly of yourself and if there’s something you don’t like you change it…Blah, Blah, Blah…
I think this is fun and so very true. There are things I don’t like about myself, would I change these things? No, Absolutely not. Why? because despite not liking them, it’s what has made me, me. I am not intentionally hurting anyone, and in order to love yourself, you must embrace yourself flaws and all.
So with that in mind here are The 10 Things I hate about ME
1. My lack of brain to mouth filter
I seriously lack a filter, when I get excited, mad or really any sort of emotion. I loose track of things I say and since my thought process seems to go from 0 to 60 in half a second I try to say everything I’m thinking. This includes random thoughts, TMI, curse words and pretty much everything. I tend to blurt out whatever I’m thinking and end up with a foot in my mouth. This is not the most pleasant feeling.
2. My extreme need for coffee
If it’s available I will drink it, not matter the time. If I see a coffee shop (doesn’t matter which one) I will immediately need to have it. It’s some weird addiction that is a bit hard to control. Does this mean I give into the urges? Absolutely not, I do have some willpower ya know.
3. I need to sing a long if I know the song
My husband hates this, but since I’ve been with him for over a decade I can see how this would bother someone. Most of the time I don’t know I’m doing it, I just start to. Plus I can hear a song once or twice and learn the lyrics. Song lyrics are just easy to memorize, I’m probably pushing something important out but whatevs.
4. I procrastinate
I will leave something to the absolute last minute of I can, and I hate that I do this. Out of everything in this list, this is the one thing that I actually want to change. Due to my procrastination I put myself under unnecessary stress and well as well all know that is not good for you.
5. I’m suspicious
I’m suspicious about everything, If your nice, mean, or just walking by I will be suspicious about you. I think everyone has some sort of ulterior motive that I need to figure out. ‘Your smiling at me, what the hell are you planning person’ is pretty much my thought on a daily basis.
6. I don’t like shorts
So I don’ even know why, but I refuse to wear shorts in public. It has nothing to do with showing my legs, since I love skirts and dresses, but shorts are a absolute ‘Nope’ in public. I wear them around the house if I don’t have anything else to lounge around in, or if it’s just hot and I don’t wanna be around in my underwear. I just don’t do shorts.
7. Horrible pronunciation
So when I speak, I tend to mispronounce words, maybe because like I’ve said before I think pretty quickly and I need to get the words out before I get to the next thought and loose track. My husband loves pointing it out, he’s like the damn speech police.
8. I talk with random accents
So not only do I mispronounce words, but apparently random accents make their way into my talking as well. Once again my husband the speech police has pointed this out on many occasions. Why I do this, I do not know. I have a Californian accent and honestly if I tried to actually do a accent I fail miserably.
9. I have the urge to buy things on sale
my pocket book hates me, whenever I see something on sale I have the urge to buy it. While some of these sales are really great, some not so much. My mind sees a sale sign and I need to look and I’ll most likely buy something. It’s oh so bad.
10. I want to do too much at one time
I always have ideas, thoughts, urges and hobbies that I want to do or try. This leads to me putting too much on my plate at once and I get stuck with so much to do that I stress myself out and get sick. I like to keep busy but I need to learn how to find a balance so I’m not driving myself down.
Did I accidentally break a bunch of mirrors? Walk under tons of ladders? Spill a gallon of salt, because my luck seems to have hit the pits lately.
I’m in pain and currently on multiple medications. BECAUSE I HAVE A FREAKING BLADDER INFECTION!!!!!
It really is one of the worse things that happened to me this year and during my holy birthday month too! I have to pee every 5 minutes and It can’t stop and won’t stop.
One thing I can say is that I finally got my first paycheck with my new job, so I bought me some make-up (because we all know how much I need it…not) so I’ll post up my haul, most likely Monday, because I finally have another Sample Sunday planned for you all tomorrow. Exciting isn’t it?
Wish me luck on the peeing…
