I finally paid off all my credit card debt and now I just owe my parents money for them paying some tuition for college, so I finally have some spending money that is guilt free.  I have a steady income and most of it is saving right now so I have been spending it as well for stuff I need/want.  Here are some purchases!

I have gone on a bit of a nail polish rampage...I wasn't allowed to wear it during clinic or outreaches for school so I could only wear it weekends really and now that I am done school and a) my nails have grown a lot since I Haven't been massaging lately and b) I no longer have to be polish free when I work...I have bought and worn a lot more colours.  However, I am mega impatient and can't be arsed to wait around while polish dries.  I find it takes enough time to even paint your nails in a proper manner that when they have been painted I immediately get bored and want to do stuff, thus usually ruining my polish.  So, I love quick dry polish.  I love the new line from Wet'nWild the "fastdry" line.  They last alright, sure they chip, but no more than any other polish I have and less than some of the crappier brands so yay. And for less than $3 each that's pretty good. I have 4 colours from them:
"gray's anatomy"
This one is a duochrome or whatever, looks greyish in some lights and purplish or pinkish in others and somestimes even green, photos are crap quality from my phone. 

(I ripped of the label so no name lol)
This one was the initial purchase because it's soooo bright blue and I fell in love.
"teal of fortune"
Can't see this one too great but it's a lovely teal shade, very mermaidy, however it stains your nails.
"sage in the city"
This is sorta the green I want my wedding colour to be, yay. 

Here are a couple not from that line:
I love this one too, called "grey matter" as you can see.  Good creamy finish with no shimmer.
"night prowl"
A different WetnWild.  Do NOT buy.  I had to put like 4 coats on to get to the opacity I wanted and while putting more coats on it kinda move the sparkles around as you're brushing so it's hard to get it even.  Finally when it's opaque enough it's the same colour as my other dark purpley reds.  

Other purchases

The Ring, The Plans, The Dress, The Stress

No Idea why I would be stressed about my wedding which isn't happening for a year and a week...but I am.  I really shouldn't be because I have the church penciled in (they weren't booking yet lol) and the dinner venue is booked as well so the major things are out of the way...and I was all thinking I had the entire summer to leisurely look for dresses.  But no, apparently that makes me stressed.  I do have all summer until the end of August to pick a dress, but I am also working almost full time hours, evenings...and occasional that doesn't leave me with a lot of free time. I feel like all I do is sleep in, go to work, come home, eat, putter around on the computer and then go to bed and repeat.  I work at 11ish daily, and dress shops around here don't open until I would only have an hour to do anything.  

That and my little sister who is the MATRON of honour (yeah, she's married before I am..) works full time at the hospital so if I have a Friday off because I'm working the weekend she doesn't...and if I'm working the weekend then it's not like I can go shopping lol.  

I did go dress shopping last week, but, I am not a slender girl by any means. I have hips like "POW" like I say.  Or, according to the comic "Questionable Content" I am "aerodynamically curvacious."  Thus, clothing shopping is difficult.  Wedding dress shopping is equally or more difficult.  The larger sizes (as bridal runs small) aren't very vast in selection...and they seemed to be all the same sort of style, which was okay, and looked okay on me...but I didn't like per se.

So I am nervous that a) I won't find anything I like, b) that if I find what I am looking for that it wont be in a decent trying on size so I won't try it on and then c) that I will miss it and settle for a dress I dont love.

But whatever, pictures! Here is my ringaling
It's delicate and totally fits with the size that my fingers are.  I would totally love a ginormous rock, but it would probably be the size of my entire finger segment from knuckle to knuckle lol.  The side view has teeny hearts which I adore and the inside has the "past present future" inscription and 2 hidden diamonds which is neato.  I love it, and I love how much it sparkles.

Anywho, totally unrelated to anything makeup, but I am going to be making this blog more just for myself and my ranting and raving and whatever else rather than try to keep it strictly makeup related.  

And now, since it's almost midnight (or night noon as I call it) I am off to bed!

I'm Baaaaack

After a long long long long time, I have decided to get into the blog thing again. I have been watching a lot of youtube and stuff and wanting to just blog and write about makeup I have bought, beauty stuff, whatever.

The reason I was gone was mostly school...I have now finished my diploma program for Massage Therapy and am going to be writing my licensing exams soon and then I will be registered.  In the past while since I posted last I have: gone back to dark hair, acquired a cat, gotten an eye infection or something which has gotten me really miffed about makeup since my eyes tear up and it removes all eye makeup waterproof or otherwise, gotten engaged, booked my wedding stuff, paid off debts..and I am sure I am missing major events as well but whatever, I am sure they will come up in my ramblings.

I also got a new computer which is much faster and has a built in webcam because its a lappy rather than a compy.  This is great because my old compy a) decided it didn't want to recognize it's DVD/CDROM drive anymore, b) had 512mb RAM and was super slow and c) decided I had installed new hardware when I hadn't.  So now I have this sexy beast
And its wonderful. I just have to get used to the keyboard as I keep pressing \ instead of enter.  lol.

To be all photowhorish I shall post a pic of what I look like now, since last time I posted I was a blondey.

So attractive with that expression, lol. Note my ring haha...ENGAGED!

So I think I'll do a haul/post about stuff I have bought recently and brief reviews next, but for now...I'm back!
