Haulin

It’s not all for me! I swear! — the DermOrganic Shampoo and Masque are for my Mum! 🙂

Haulin: BaByliss Nano Titanium 1750 watt blow dryer, Macadmia Natural Oil Hair Masque (biggest tub they make, haha), Macadamia Natural Oil Rejuvenating Shampoo, 3 sets of Ardell false lashes (2 of which are InvisiBand), and a $15.99 hair brush (to carry around my purse — don’t ask me why it’s so expensive. Made in France. ? Maybe that’s why).

Haulin: food for my two kidlets. You know Oscar is the only one who really eats all this! LOL (Healthy crap on the left, and their version of “junk food” on the right side!)

Nothing else new.  I have spent all afternoon marking my students work… I’m not impressed. Emails have been sent.  Bitch panties remain on.

Call it what you want …

stand up for myself and my beliefs.
stand up for those I love.
speak my mind, think my own thoughts or do things my way.
won’t compromise what’s in my heart, I live my life my way.
won’t allow anyone to step on me, I refuse to tolerate injustice.
It means I have the courage and strength to allow myself to be me.

So try and stomp on, douse my inner flame, squash every ounce of beauty I hold within. You won’t succeed. And if that makes me a bitch, so be it.

I embraced the title and I’m proud of it.

Fool-Proof Guide to Life

 

 

You know what I hate? People who think their shit does not stink. You know what I’m talking about.. those cocky son-of-a-bitches who think they’re all that and a bag of chips.

We’ve all bumped into them or if you haven’t, you will. So I’ve come up with a no-fail, fool-proof guide of the top ten ways to get through life:

• Confidence. Wear it like make-up. Heavy and Strong.
• Don’t wait for the perfect moment. Make the perfect moment.
• Do what you want. If it’s something you’ll regret in the morning, sleep late.
• If it doesn’t burn on the way down it’s not worth the taste.
• Always smile in the morning. It makes people wonder what you did last night.
• There’s nothing a girl wants more than what she can’t have.
• We’re only young once so let’s screw this up right.
• Live your life crazy and love every second of it.
• You never really lose you just run out of time
• Hope for the best, prepare for the worst, and expect nothing.

Crisis Averted

Finally! Crisis averted.  No one will be losing their job after all! My order is in my hot little hands!!  The main goodies of my order: Sephora Professional IT Natural Foundation Brush, and Angled Natural Blush Brush.  They both retail for about $45 CAD a piece. You can’t beat true quality! I will most likely do a review later on when I’ve had a chance to use them a bit more.  I did use both brushes when I did my makeup this afternoon, and I am absolutely obsessed with the angled blush brush! Perfect for contouring.  The foundation brush? I need to use it a bit more.  It does give a flawless airbrushed effect after applying your foundation; I’m just not sold on the size of it just yet.  It is small enough to get into smaller regions like around the nose, but since I’m so used to using a kabuki brush for foundation application it’ll take me some time to truly get used to this brush.

The other main contender? Urban Decay’s Naked2 palette.  I’m in love. Enough said.  It will definitely be competing with my Stila “In the Light” palette (my past HG shadow palette).

Of course, NARS blush in “sin”.  It’s such a gorgeous colour, and I feel like “orgasm” and “deep throat” are a bit too overrated.  This one’s the perfect deep berry colour, with a hint of gold shimmer.  So if you’re looking for a matte blush, this one is not for you!

I didn’t feel swatches were necessary.  These items are pretty main stream and popular across YouTube right now, so it would be rather redundant.  But of course if you request me to I will be willing to post some swatches!

Urban Decay All Nighter – I’ve heard fantastic things about this.  I chose to get the smallest bottle just to trial it.

Sephora flirt-it lash duo. I’m a suck for falsies on special occasions/nights out.   I do usually stick to Quo, but for $8 or $10 (forget the price) it’s worth giving it a try.

Blotting papers. Always necessary.

Samples: I did only request 1. D&G The One perfume, 2. Chloe perfume, 3. Cartier Baiser Vole perfume.  In addiction, for some reason they also sent me Givency Play perfume and a bareMinerals powder sample.  I won’t complain.

In addition today after getting off night shift at 0730, I slept until about 4pm and then decided I needed a few odds and ends from Walmart.  I hadn’t been to one in ages! While there I browsed down their cosmetics section to find HARD CANDY cosmetics! Woo! I had seen it across YouTube with good reviews. It was $5.98. In the middle is Hard Candy’s Tinted Lip Balm in Lovestruck.  They didn’t have any Maybelline Baby Lips left.  This was $2.98.  And the last thing is Hard Candy’s Plumping Serum volumizing lip gloss in 152 Uptown Girl.

I got these two bad boys just to try out.  When it comes to fluffy powder brushes, I don’t splurge.  This one was $7.77 and the second brush (which I’ll use for a shadow brush) was only $2.97.  Steal! Considering these two brushes cost a 1/4 of what one of my Sephora IT brushes cost me! LOL…

Finally, of course I indulged in a sugar-free cinnamon dolce frapp! Perfect end!

Late Dinner

I’m working nights x 2 starting tomorrow, so why not make a late, yummy dinner? 🙂

Turkey breast, red onion and garlic, yellow bell pepper, chunky mushrooms, organic cherry tomatoes, no yolk egg noodles, campbells mushroom soup base,  parmesan cheese, cracked black pepper… done!

(It probably seems like I cook a lot of pasta, but I actually don’t.  I find boring lean protein/meat and veggies kind of boring to take a picture of… it’s very bland)

Lately I’ve been completely obsessed with putting organic cherry tomatoes in anything I cook (almost).  They have such a warm burst of flavour! Mmm.

Houston, we have a [shopping] problem…

Ok, well it probably isn’t a problem… but I thought it would make for an interesting title.

I literally just got in from running some errands. My main focus: find out where the fffk my Sephora parcel is! All $275 worth of it. This morning I heard someone knock on the door, and I quickly looked out the window from upstairs and saw Canada Post. By the time I ran down the stairs and into the garage to get to the door he was GONE. Stealth little bugger. I didn’t let it phase me. I knew he’d leave a slip with information when to pick it up at the local branch. No slip. Not in the mail box. Not on the door. WTF! Ok… no big deal. Now that I am up, I shower, get ready and go have a coffee. I went to CostCo –and miraculously spent over $150! on what? Don’t ask. I can barely quantify what I got for that amount. On the way back home I decided to stop at the Canada Post branch near my house to see what the deal was. Lady said “Hm, well come back after 5pm today, or else it may not be here til Monday morning”. Got home. Had another coffee. Randomly decided to go on the mac and see what the tracking information was all about for my order. Item successfully delivered. WTF (again)!.  So I called Canada Posts main line and talk to a very pleasant lady.  On her end she also notes that the driver did in fact drop off the package, but with NO signature.  “Do Not Safe Drop” – the order specifically says.  Blah blah, she says it’s odd that the driver would drop it off without a signature especially under those ‘conditions’.  At this point I’m even more mad, thinking where the fffk is my package with over $275 worth of cosmetics from Sephora?!! She apologizes, of course. I expressed my concerns and feelings, naturally. She then gives me a reference number and says the ‘Investigations department’ will look into it and contact me within 5-10 business days. What else can I do? I write the number down, along with her name and hang up.
I really do not need to express in words how angry and frustrated I am at this point. I went to the local Canada Post branch after 5pm today in hopes I’d be there. Nope. They have no idea where it is.  I suppose I wait. I’ll be calling Canada Post back next week to follow up if they don’t call me first. Until then I will be familiarizing myself with their policy and fill out a claims report in case it doesn’t turn up. Not impressed. At all.  When this is all said and done, should I not ask for some sort of reimbursement?!?

SO naturally, to cheer myself up, I went out and did a bit of shopping. Not much though; I did have a rough idea of what I wanted to get.

TaDa.  This mini haul shall hold me over until my glorious Sephora order is in my hot little hands (fingers crossed).

False lashes make me happy. I don’t wear them often, but when I do… aaah. The Physician’s Formula is a duo pack! Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Bronzer (haha, how ironic) with a “bonus” Glow & Mood Boosting blush! I know it may not be as good as the Nars Sin blush I had in my Sephora order (waaaaahhh) but it’s worth a shot! The duo pack was $21.99, which is decent considering most single item PF face powders cost about that much.  PS I HATE their packaging — the compacts are so bulky.
As for the Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque – what I was really hoping to find was the Moroccan Oil hair masque (I’m in love with the moroccan oil) but they didn’t have any left! Boo.

Any questions on the products I just purchased, leave a comment below!

This makes me laugh to no end! I love how everyone seems to be having so much fun! And kudos to the groom and his groomsmen for this amazingly funny dance!
