My Monday Morning

Hey everyone,
     So let me tell you how eventful my monday morning has been.   I woke up around 10 AM and was excited I was feeling better.  I twittered that I would be filming and uploading a tutorial today- and I was going to go ahead and hop in the shower.  Well, in the shower I started feeling nauseous so I turned the water all the way to cold - which I normally hate, but for some reason it felt so soothing.  The only thing I remember is that I thought I was going to throw up, so I turned around to open the shower door.  I woke up laying at the bottom of the shower with cold water spewing all over me.  I knew what had happened- I had passed out... again.  I started to get up but my head and back were killing me.  I managed to get up and get dressed before yelling for my mom.  She came in and checked my head (apparently when I fell, my head hit the faucet.)  So I told her my back was hurting- and turns out, it was already bruising.  I lay down on the floor while my mom held ice to my head and back and argued with other family members whether to take me to the hospital or not.
     We decided that for now I should just lie in bed and see how I'm feeling.  I feel too nauseous to eat, but am drinking a sugary ice tea.  We think that I pass out in the morning a lot (a lot being about 4-6 times a year) because I don't eat anything until after I have gotten ready for the day and/or filmed a video. So we have now decided that when I wake up- I need to put a piece of sugary candy in my mouth before I get out of bed - ex. a peppermint. 
     If anyone has had this happen to them- how did you cure it?  I'm tired of it....
     So, I guess my reason of telling you all this was so that you could know that I am not putting a video up today- Sorry!

An Update On My Life

     My life has been some what crazy- to say the least- these past few weeks. So I guess this will just be one of those boring updates, where I tell you what has been going on with me. 


     So it all started when I went to LA for IMATS (International Makeup Artist Tradeshow.) It was so much fun! On saturday we went and were able to meet a lot of people I look up to in the youtube world. Some of these people include-- pursebuzz, enkoremakeup, xsparkage, pertilude, macnc40, fafinettex3, and tons of other people! Including some subscribers!!! You can check out my fan facebook page for pictures from that event here:   
     On sunday we went back to IMATS until 12. Then, I got to go shopping with my sister, Elle, and Aubrey, fafinettex3!!! Aubrey's boyfriend, Chi (like the straightener) was there also. We went shopping in orange county then went to Hollywood to take pictures by the famous sign.
     Pretty much... I have decided LA is the perfect place to live. You have the mountains, and the beach. It is about 75 degrees year round. So never super cold or super hot. It is a busy town, and everything is there, but you can still drive your own car. Also, it's clean (unlike NYC).

     Then I went to Tallahassee, FL. I stayed there about 2 weeks. It was just to vacation and visit family. I miss my aunt, Delilah, SO much. She is one of my closest friends! I also want to go back to see some friends I had to leave there... Basically, this was just family time.

     After FL, I went to Atlanta, GA. This was to visit more family and I only stayed there for 1 night. This is where I bought all 15 issues of my 17 magazine!! 

    I got home from GA on Monday. Tuesday morning I was booking a flight for my mom and I to go to NYC. Mainly to visit Elle. We left my house on thursday night and drove the few hours to the airport in Charlotte (we fly out of here so that we can fly jet blue!) We stayed in a hotel that night.... and I forgot to put my moms carry on in the car. So she didn't have her shoes, computer, curlers, and other essentials!! Friday morning we were at the airport at 6am. Our flight landed in NYC at 8:30 in the morning. 
    We took a taxi into Manhattan to Elle's apartment. We spent the afternoon shopping. I bought my coach poppy bag (the pop c tote.) At 5 we went to a cute little place to get mani/pedi's with Karen, and Sharon. Karen is the creater of purple lab (the 'huge lips skinny hips' gloss!) They are the nicest people in the world! I feel like Karen is my long lost sister!! I also then got my blue coach poppy bag at this time. I thought I was going to cry. I wanted it SOO badly, but it was $200 more than the one I ended up buying myself. Still, to this day, I cannot thank you enough. (you know who you are!) I have carried that bag every day but once (the time I wasn't wearing the blue one, I was wearing my other Poppy bag) since I got it!!! Even if I am not wearing Blue! 
      We then went out to dinner with Karen and Sharon to the cutest mexican restaurant. Dee met us there too!
     Saturday, I went to the 789 gathering with Jen and met whatthebuck! I also met a loyal follower Ariel, she was SOO cute! I even signed her shirt, which was the highlight of MY day. I saw soundlyawake (he was so nice!) jpmettz, macnc40, and petrilude. Then, Jen and I went to eat sushi! We decided to just wander around times square, and ended up going to see 'The Little Mermaid' on broadway. It was absolutely adorable! I also got to see Drew Steely play prince Eric!! It started raining on us then, so I bought an umbrella. and a 2 tee shirts from planet hollywood- one says 'remember me, one day i'll be famous', and 2 keychains, and a slice of pizza!
     Sunday, Jamie (Jamiexdoll) came into the city with her friend Dana and we met up! I rode in a taxi all by myself!! haha. I went to pen station to meet them. Then we went shopping all day. We went to sephora, forever21, charlotte russe, free people, anthropology, mac, and saks 5th avenue. In the middle of the day we went to Sbarro pizza, and I got salad dressing ALL over my cute h&m dress. So I changed into one I had bought at free people! They got back on the train and went home around 6 or 7. 
     Let me just say, Jamie and Dana are two of the sweetest people I have ever met. I know I will always have true friends in them! I can call Jamie anytime, and she's the type of person I know will be there for me!
     Monday... What did I do monday? hahaha. Who knows?!?!?!
     Tuesday I went to Heleinas to buy my fake bangs! Then we ate grilled cheese sandwiches with bacon and tomato on it. Then flew back to Charlotte, and drove home. 

     Now I have just been concentrating on my videos! I hope this update isn't totally boring. Maybe 1 person read it all the way through? Haha. Tell me what you think of the new layout. Abbie made it! smashurbox from youtube! 


BTW, my music obsession of the day has been 'Hot Air Balloon' by Owl City. And any song from Demi Lovatos new CD! Tell me your favorite song by Demi!

Sunday, July 5, 2009

Others, have been. Make sure to read the description of the product you are wanting to purchase! While the products sell, I will be editing this and putting SOLD! next to the item if it is already gone, so make sure to check if it is sold already!

1) If you want an item, say so in the comments along with your Paypal email address. I will then send you an invoice.

2) Paypal is the only method of payment accepted - it's just easier and more secure.

3) Please ensure you pay for the item immediately upon receiving the invoice - or at least some time within the next 24 hours; otherwise the item will be reposted and will not be reserved for you.

4) If you do not have a paypal account, but would like the product. Then you can comment for me to reserve it for you while you make a paypal account. If you do not get back to me with in an hour. The product will be back up for grabs!

6) Shipping is $3 for the first item, and add $.50 for each additional item. 

7) No returns.

SOLD! Item #1: Mac Hello Kitty Beauty Powder in 'Tahitian Sand' - Originally $22, My price $15

This beauty powder is from the infamous Hello Kitty collection from mac. It has been swatched one time, but I always reached for something else to use instead. The color is a soft coral/peach. The real reason I got this was to depot the tahitian sand when it was finished, and put a blotting powder in it so I could carry it around with me in the cute compact! But it doesn't look like I will ever finish it. Remember, this was limited edition, you cannot get it anymore! 

SOLD! Item #2: Mac Hello Kitty Eye Shadow Quad in 'Lucky Tom' - Originally $38, My price $30

This quad comes with 4 mac eyeshadows (creme royal, paradisco, stylin', lucky tom) all in a cute Hello Kitty compact. I have swatched these colors about 3 times, and I have used it on my eyes only once (to do a tutorial). It is still priced so high, is because it was limited edition, so you cannot get it anymore! Also, you get 4 mac eyeshadows that compliment each other! 

SOLD! Item #3: Urban Decay Ammo Palette - Originally $36, My price $25

This palette is absolutely amazing! The ONLY reason I am selling it is because I have 3 other urban decay palettes, and several single urban decay eyeshadows. I went through the palette and all of the colors I have in either another palette or a single eye shadow, so I do not need this. This palette has been used about 15 times, and none of the eye shadows are even close to hitting pan! The sponge tip applicator, well, I would not recommend using it for sanitary purposes. I do have to say the packaging is a little bit dirty. It comes with 10 urban decay eye shadows that are very pigmented and glittery. I have done videos on youtube using this, so now you can recreate the look!   

SOLD! Item #4: MakeUp ForEver Concealer Palette in #3 - Originally $36, My price $30

This palette comes with 5 shades of concealer, including one with a red hue so that you can concealer blue circles under your eyes. I bought this spur of the moment, and have only swatched the red color. The other 4 concealers remain untouched. I honestly cannot tell you why I bought this since I love the concealer I have now. But if you have large, blue under eye circles then this is for you! 

SOLD! Item #5: Naked Cosmetics Eye Shadow Row in 'Debonaire' - Originally $60, My Price $45

These 6 loose shadows are perfect to create the ultimate smokey eye. The story behind this is kind of weird. But here is what happened.. I bought all 17 rows of colors at IMATS and when she was bagging them, she picked up two debonaires and left out another color (which wasn't that great of one, so I don't mind). Anyways, this product is still sealed and never opened or touched. It is my new favorite way to do a smokey eye. So be expecting some tutorials of different ways to use it! 

SOLD! Item #6: Mac Mineralized Eye Shadow Duo in 'Love Connection' - Originally $19, My price $10

This mineralize eye shadow duo works well on any skin tone, and it really brightens up your eyes. It comes with a light golden beige side, and a blue and gold side. The colors go great together! This leaves a pearl finish that give a soft dimensional shimmer after applied. I have used this probably around 10 times, but I like to reach for more dramatic things in my collection. 

SOLD! Item #7: Color Lip Fusion in 'Smooch' and 'Kiss' - Originally $40, My price $15

These lip plumpers are quite possibly the best on the market. I own these myself and reach for them all the time. In my latest video (I'm in Seventeen Magazine) I am wearing smooch! (don't worry, a different one!) These two lip plumpers have never been used. I only opened them to take a picture, but they have never been used. Keep in mind - these do not sting your lips, and give you a beautiful, sexy pout!

Item #8: Makeup Forever Star Powder - Originally $19, My price $13

Color #1- 958 A true to color chartreuse with shimmer.
SOLD! Color #2- 910 A forest green with gold reflects.
SOLD! Color #3- 950 A smokey grey with silver sparkles. (PERFECT for a smokey eye!) 
Color #4- 920 A vivid yellow with shimmer
SOLD! Color #5- 922 A melon/copper with fine gold shimmer. 
So, basically, I bought these. Then when I bought my naked desserts loose shadows, I didn't need these. None of them have been opened and they all still have the seal on them. They also come in the box! Star powders are very very fine pigments that are  SO beautiful.

SOLD! Item #9- Mac Kohl Powder Eyeliner in 'Orpheus' - Originally $15, My price $10

This eyeliner is my absolute FAVORITE! It was limited edition through mac and I bought 4 :/ Well, I am still on my 2nd. So I am just going to get rid of this one. It has never been used! It is a black with gold reflects. I love this with a neutral eye when you don't want heavy black eyeliner - this is the best! Since it is a Kohl Power eyeliner, it goes on super easy and if you run a q-tip over it, it smudges into a beautiful smokey liner!

SOLD! Item #10- Lancome Neutral Quad - IDK the original price (Probably $30), My price $5

I have to admit, this one is pretty used. It's not that the shadows have even been worn a lot. It is just the the packaging looks like its been through a lot! hahaha. It makes a BEAUTIFUL neutral eye and the quad comes with a peach, baby pink, chocolate brown, and gold. They are all shimmery except for the brown, which is matte. 

Item #11- Almay Pure Blend Eyeshadow - Original Price $8, My price $3

1: Cocoa
2: Stone
SOLD! 3: Lavender
4: Ivory
SOLD!5: Petal
These shadows can be purchased at any drugstore. I just need to get rid of them since 4 have not even been opened. I know I will never wear them. One of them has been opened and swatched (the one in the middle) but they have never been worn. These are 98.2% natural and organic... so save the world! 

SOLD! Item #12- Almay Pure Blend Blush in 'Bouquet' - Originally $12, My price $5

This blush is a pretty peach color (comparable to mac peachtwist) I have opened this to look at it, but never used it. It is 98.2% natural and organic.

The In's and Out's

So Laura (lollipop26) and Elle (allthatglitters21) do this and i thought it would be fun!  Also, if you've ever read the clique books- Massie Block does these posts. hahahaha.

LUSH!- Enough said. (The therapy bar is the best!) Me and Elles new and improved webstore that came out. 
Dollhouse- The new TV show that comes on FOX on fridays at 9(my time). It's very "Island-ish."
Fake Tanners- Fake Bake is the best. It's not orange at all! And it doesn't streak, but make sure you wear gloves!
Illness- I was sick for almost 2 weeks. then got better for 4 days. Well, now I have a stomach virus. So apparently illness is waaayyy IN for me. 
Cute Movie Store Boys: doesn't the title say it all? I have been renting A LOT of movies lately. 

Bath and Body Works- Ew. (But christmas time there still rocks.) Me and Elle's old boring webstore.
Bones- The show that used to be the best, but now it's all the same. Brennan and Booth just need to get married or i'll never watch it again.
Tanning Beds- Three words- skin cancer anyone?
Health- I eat an apple everyday. I don't know why I get so sick! 
Cute Bag Boys- Not that they're necessarily OUT, but the movie boys are just much better.

Well, that's it for this one. I forgot I had a blog to update :/ So i'll try to do a post every couple of days!
