So this is coming a tad bit late. At the moment I’m in Ocean City Maryland with my family…so I’ve been in the sun…feeling the sea breeze and maybe enjoying a drink or two. Last week was my birthday. I’m currently 29+1 and I plan on talking more about that later, as well as my trip for my big day- but that’s coming. For now you’ll just get a few snippets. Hope these photos find you well and I’ll talk to you all later!
1- on the 23rd…I had a seriously rough day at work. My phone was going off before I even got out of the house for work and more just kept happening and happening. I felt as thigh I never stopped. There was IT stuff going on…and new stuff getting implemented. Then I had to go to my part time job too. I’m pretty certain there’s no such thing as an easy week before a vacation.
2- blood.orange.margarita. So damn good. Had this at at Mexican restaurant in Atlantic City for my birthday. The made guacamole to order…so fresh and delicious.
3- after dinner we went (back to) gambling and I won a colossal win on the Michael Jackson slot machine…I don’t know exactly what happened but he was singing beat it and moonwalking and I ended up with 59 dollars. Holler!
4- we decided to go to the boardwalk for lunch the next day and found glasses with mustaches. We later wore them to the club and got loads of attention (both good and bad).
5- my friend took this photo of me that we dubbed “majestic native birthday princess”. Apparently when I pushed my glasses up it looked like a hair piece. I dunno- made sense t the time.
6- Saturday I made it home to my parents that had just gotten in from NC to go on family vacation and was surprised with a cake at dinner. I was very tired and should have made my way to my own house…
Some extras! Clearly my pup missed me but he’s in good hands this week. I’ve been getting photos sent showing him having a good time at my friend Brandon’s house. My eye also swelled up upon entry to my sisters and my house because I’d forgotten my allergy meds on my way to Atlantic City- so I just blew up when I got home. Elphie wasn’t trying to let me go on vacation. She paid n me and meowed at me a lot. She doesn’t meow a lot so it’s a pretty big deal.
And that’s it for now! I’m about to go and probably stuff my face with carnie food and get a belly ache on the boardwalk.
Another week has come and gone! Thank.the.lord. It’s been a rough one…I feel that the week(s) right before vacation (yes….I said vaycay) are the longest weeks everrrr. I’ve been working my bum off this week and tomorrow is my last day before vacation bliss. With sun, and maybe a little gambling, some drinks, and most importantly- delicious food! I’m not sure if you can tell but I’m pretty stoked. Not to mention my birthday is coming. Loads to do…any maybe a little something special for you all *wink*.
So here are the things I’ve been up to since last Monday:
1- Scrappy and I caught up on TrueBlood. I missed it on Sunday because my sister called…and then my parents called…someone called. I just remember being on the phone. I liked the books much better than the show is turning out- but southern vampires? Love. And Mr.Eric Northman….Nordic god much? Love it.
2- I finally got mini propane tanks for our mini grill!! I’ve been grilling like its nobodies business. Here we had chicken (duh), squash with onions and seasons in one packet and asparagus and other seasonings in the other. Yum.
3- my on the go makeup hotmess of a bag. Basically- I don’t wear makeup all day if I’m at my full time job. So around lunch or whenever I just get a minute- I break out my bag and slap a face on before I drive to job number 2.
4- my coworker asked me about my actual birthday for like 2 weeks straight about a month ago.so I stopped telling her and she forgot. So she gave me my gift a week earlier. Mmmm Wawa.
5- I left work excited to head home and pulled my sunnies out of my purse without inspecting….then I realized my vision was funny so I looked in the vanity mirror and this is what I saw- so I took a picture because that’s normal. And it’s funny. Don’t worry I popped the other lens back in. These 25 dollar on sale Betsey Johnson’s aren’t going without a fight.
6- I met up with my friend Liz to shop at Target (terribly awesome idea- always) and grab dinner/discuss my birthday plans. So then we decided we needed drinks to start prepping for nights (yes plural) out. Omg. We went to Houlihans and I got a strawberry basil lemonade (I forget what kinds of alcohol was in it) talk about dang delicious. And pickle fries- I die everytime.
So that’s what has been up. How have you been? Let me know what your week has been like. I also had a hilarious at a “pure romance” party with my eldest sister- which I don’t know if I’ll write about it. It’s basically a “ladies have needs” party of sorts- but it’s pretty hilarious and just an interesting way to hang out with your friends. Let me know if you’re interested in hearing about that.
Well I think I’ve rambled far too long.
Look at me trying to do stuff…I’ll admit to you all I’m a love of tags. It’s like that awkward icebreaker at summer camp over and over again…with different questions for different needs. And I’ll answer this while I’m at it- no, I have never liked ice breakers. They make my palms sweat. But over the internet I call full the masses into thinking I’m witty and clever and you’ll be none the wiser. Well- I guess now you know but whatever you’re still here so I’m not too concerned (maybe? dang it). Either way the lovely Melissa over at Pink Lady Beauty tagged me…so I figured “What the mess, lets DO this”.
Rule 1: Post the rules
Rule 2: Answer the questions the tagger asked you, then make 11 new ones.
Rule 3: Tag 11 people [ or how many you feel like ] and link them to your post
Rule 4: Let them know you’ve tagged them
1.What is your favorite book? Harry Potter nerd all the way.
2. What fashion trend do you wish would come back? Hmm…would come back? Fanny pack? Really they’re just crossbody bags with a really short strap
3. What is your signature scent? I’m kind of in love with Jo Malone everything
4. What is your ultimate essential beauty product that you would have a hard time being without? Moisturizer. I’m bone dry.
5. What is your most wanted beauty item right now? Most wanted…I’m really loving the hourglass eyebrow pencils I just can’t justify a 32 dollar pencil.
6. What ways do you try to build self-confidence? I think the best way to do that is to be happy with who you are and being comfortable in your own skin. Once you stop caring about everyone else…it’ll all fall into place. Do I believe that it’s fully possible-no. But it’s the act if being aware of it that really sets it apart. I think that makes sense.
7. What style of jewelry do you wear? Super simple and nothing really chunky. Studs and a simple necklace. Maybe a leather wrap bracelet
8. Do you have any embarrassing beauty habits? I pick my cuticles. Pull, bite, pick. I think it’s gross. And I pick my face- eesh.
9. What is your idea of the perfect date night? Hmm…I like motorcycle rides on back roads in the summer. The trees look like they have twinkle lights but really they’re fireflies
10. What motivates you to be your best? Knowing that there’s the possibility of more. You can’t achieve more if you’re doing less.
11. What trends are you into right now? Bright lips and neon accessories
My questions to you:
1. What’s you’re favorite era?
2. What’s trend do you hope doesn’t return?
3. How do you make time for your blogging?
4. What would you change if you had the opportunity and resources?
5. How many make up brushes do you have?
6. What’s your favorite lip products?
7. What overseas brand/product do you wish you had on your home turf?
8. What kind of base coat do you use for your nails?
9. Do you have a favorite hair product? If so…what is it?
10. If you could travel anywhere where would you go and why?
11. What beauty habit do you just not understand.
….tag you’re it!
aaand whoever else wants to 😀
Have fun and can’t wait to see your responses!
So as I suck at posting like I want to…I thought that this could be a good way to update you guys on thingies going on (because I just know you care) and kind of keep up with myself. I super enjoy these types of posts myself (definitely check out my girl over at cowboys and crossbones if you’re looking for a good hoot!) and they let you get to know people a little bit better…or at least be a creeper at your own leisure (HA!). So here is a pictorial debut of my life as of late.
From top to bottom!
1- I busted the hell out of my middle finger at work. Many words were said…it isn’t as bruised anymore, HOWEVER it has constant funny bone syndrome. Can’t do a damn thing without feeling it shoot up my hand.
2- I had to be at work at 8am last Saturday and my alarm went off around 5:45am. My pup was holding my hand…I did not want to get out of bed.
3- dangerous. I found out exactly HOW close Sonic was to my ptj. On top of this I got pissed because if I waited 30 minutes it would have been happy hour and my slush would have been half price. Double dangerous- there’s a really good Walgreens right next door.
4- This is what I wore to one of my really good friends weddings. We’ve known each other since we were 9? Maybe? It’s been a long ass time. All I know is I took this waiting to go to the bathroom because it was NON-STOP-FUN….and I waited a little long. My b.
5- took Scrappy over to my sisters house to finally meet their new dog Chloe. Things got awkward a couple times…I’ll leave it at that.
6-my nephew insisted on reading me a book about poop and show me the photos as he went. He can’t read yet but he was just pointing out the different poops. This is one of his favorite photos of two poops parachuting.
And so that is my life as of this past Sunday. How are things going with you?
Oh heeeeeey. Lets revive this joker. So along with liner, I think one of the most difficult things to do that is super effective are false lashes. There are a TON of different ways to do it…just like my liner, I can’t always stick to one. Kind of ends up being a matter of what kind of lashes they are, how much time I have, how many times they’ve been use…the circumstances go on. So I thought I’d show you one of the ways I do it.
