Goodies, goodies & more goodies!

whew... so it's been over a week so i've last posted. i have been busy with holiday stuff, work, & just having a little fun :)
i've been shopping & ordering things left & right. My mother got me a GPS which i totally love... & i have NEVER been to a CCO ever, so i decided why not put my GPS to good use & make a little trip. i went with my 2 sisters & ended up getting a few things.

it's a little dark, i apologize!.. so i got.... emote blush, true romantic blush, sculpt & shape powder, royal assets cool palette, blot powder, vellum eyeshadow, & a lip gloss. all for $100. not bad. i also got lip erase from Miss. Vanessa M.... which i'm totally loving! I will do a full review when i have used it longer :)

thennn... my sister, who i just loveee (hehe) got me 1 of the holiday brush sets & of course, i had to get another set myself because i just love that they're red. i also ordered the cool pigments & they FINALLY came today. i ordered them over 2 weeks ago-how annoying! i had to call MAC & tell them to ship them. what is that! overall, i called them a total of 5 times before they were actually shipped & i got a tracking #. BOO

i also ordered lots of stuff from cherryculture....

cream blush in natural.
lipsticks: louisiana, chloe, circe, rea, narcissus, harmonica, athena, pandora.. also 2 not shown: iced honey i think & taupe
lip glosses: barbie pink, african queen, perfect, sweet heart, smokey look, taupe, tea rose, la la, & candy shop
ultra pearl mania: fanta, lime, mink, ocean blue, turquoise, pearl, silver, black, nude, purple, space, mocha
&, as you all know.. victoria secrets semi annual sale is going on, so i HAD to stop by!

i got 2 pajamas & slippers. ALL are the same print. i was eyeing these before christmas so i was ecstatic to see them on sale. :-D 1 set is thermal pjs the other is a sleep shirt. love them! i also got an eyeshadow, sexy little things lotion, & a keychain. all that for $70! there were a few things i was looking for that i didn't see in the store so i'll have to order them from the site.
& then, last but not least.. i love changing my appearance. i picked up a pair of glasses a few months ago with no prescription just to give me a different look on certain days & i loved them. so i decided to pick up a couple other pairs..

red 1s with leopard print & a pair of purple ones because i'm loving purple lately.
now the sad part... i haven't gotten to use any of this stuff :( this is all stuff i have bought AFTER christmas & doesn't inlcude any of the gifts i received. i have been working 11-10 each day so i don't feel extremely guilty about buying it all. i decided i wanted a brand new car last year so those payments are a bummer each month. :-X & tomorrow marks 1 year exactly that i've had my car! it was such an exciting day hehehe.
well gals, that's it! ciaoooo :)))

Silly Girls

my friend's dinner got pushed to Monday because of a snow storm on Sunday... & because of unbearably cold weather Monday, we decided not to wear dresses. so i never got to wear my dress. :( last minute i had to find something suitable to wear. luckily i threw something together & still managed to be ready on time. (i swear that was a 1st! i am ALWAYS late!! :[ haha)

this is what i decided to wear..
nothing fancy.

i also wore black knee boots, but you can't see them here.

it was a fun time. we went to a fondue place, & i swear all of our minds must not have been working what so ever! we were all acting as if we never socialize. our poor waitor must have thought we were weirdos. we couldn't help but to laugh at ourselves & the more we "tried" to act normal, the worse it was! hahahaha. :-p no one bothered checking the time while we were there, all we knew was that we were there for awhile. we asked our waitor if it usually takes awhile to eat there, he was a little hesitant & answered yes, a table of 5 usually takes about 2 hours. by the time we finally left, we realized we were there for 4 hours. HAHA! i'm sure he thought we were total fools, but that's okay.... what did he expect? we were just 4 girls havin fun :)

out of the 4 of us, my friend (the birthday girl) & i, were the only 2 who decided to get drinks. I don't drink, ever! 100% sober in every way. no drinking or drugs for me, but i decided i would have a glass of wine with dinner... & wow, this is sad-but i was feeling it after just 1 glass! LOL. i cut myself off after 1. my friend on the other hand kept going & that was quite entertaining. :)

here's a few pics, i didn't take many at all because we were all busy talking & laughing & dipping/cooking our food.

Bianca & i

Nefreteri (birthday girl) & India

i just have to point out how pale these girls make me look! :[

on another note... i ordered stuff from MAC last Sunday & still haven't gotten it. what is going on?!! :((( i have no patience so to wait a week is long for me. hehe. i'm hoping for today !

Dinner Date

one of my friends just turned 21, we are planning to go out to eat Sunday at a restaurant of her choice. since it's her birthday, her rules! she wanted us all to wear dresses.. & hey-that's fine by me! i love a reason to dress up! :)
so.. i went dress shopping the other day. i was pressed for time & couldn't go to many stores. i love shopping, i love clothes.. BUT, i am short.. like 5'2.. & have big boobs, so of course NOTHING ever fits right! :[ urghh.. so finding a dress that wasn't too long, but fit my boobs was difficult. these 2 are the only ones that fit the best. they aren't too dressy, but i still like them.

please excuse the pics! ... i was in a rush & didn't want to take off my leggings or boots- HAHA! so i look a bit foolish.

the 1st 1 is satin & bunched around the waist & hips with a slit in the back. the 2nd 1 is just simple with black lace on top & a belt around the waist. neither are too fancy, but they'll work & i can re-use them for another occasion.

which 1 should i wear?!.. #1 or 2? or neither?! & my hair is another issue. i've been anti-bangs lately. should i wear them down? or pin them back?... i was thinking of putting my hair in rollers for a big, curly hair look. who knows! i never have a plan. everything i do is random & spur of the moment. plans never work out for me.

anyone have suggestions for me? :)
