July Life (with some June)

When I made my Ipsy post yesterday, it baffled me where the last month went. I have just been doing so many things and honestly it has been easier to Instagram pictures here and there rather than to sit down and focus. I guess this is my compromise where I write a few words about all the pictures I have sitting on my computer.

I guess I'll start with going to Providence, RI to see Bianca Del Rio and Jujubee during Pride.

Ipsy (July 2014)

I keep getting worse and worse at this. Between working, traveling and watching anime, I just haven't felt like writing words. I have gotten some interesting things lately, though, which I kind of want to talk about. I'm even toying with the idea of doing a video if I can figure out how one does such a thing.

Anyway, on to Ipsy: Sensationally Sun Kissed

(see how lazy I was, I used an empty Modcloth box as a background so I didn't have to pull out my light box…)

Happy 10th Of July!

The 10th of July means the 11th of July is tomorrow. And the 11th of July is the end of another work week. Yay weekend! I have a couple more things I need to get for my brother's wedding which is just over a week away. It's just going to be a small thing at their house. I am making cupcakes. And trying to figure out how to pronounce his new last name. I'm awesome.

So for the 4th of July, I decided to look patriotic. Just not conventionally patriotic, because where's the fun in being normal?

Ipsy (June 2014)

It's still June, so it's ok to be doing this today right? Right. June's theme was a summery "Pretty in Paradise." According to the picture on the card, paradise is surfing so these items must be awesome for surfing (and I can only assume subsequently being eaten by sharks.)

The Used (6/16/14)

[please note an item in this post was given to me by the manufacturer. not to review, but it was free]

It's been a while, right? I think I decided part of my issue was that there were some things I was using as staples and I was tired of writing the same thing over and over. And over. Yeah. So my new format I'm trying is I write when I want about the things I have opinions on (be they good or bad.)

MAC Alluring Aquatic - Pet Me, Please Lipstick

I will admit that I'm not the MAC girl that I used to be. There was a time, not too too long ago, that I would order half the things that came out in a collection or I would stay up until all hours of the morning to ensure I didn't miss out on a launch. These day I'm pretty take-it-or-leave-it (more leave it) when it comes to the new collections. I can't be bothered with a company who hypes things up and by the time you get the email letting you know the collection launched, it's completely sold out. That's obnoxious. This all said, I did get suckered in a little by the Alluring Aquatic collection. Because of the packaging. Well, look:

(don't look under my nails, apparently there was still BB cream 
from when I did my makeup just before :/)

Ipsy (May 2014)

Come on spring! Okuuuuuuuuur??? I'm sure that makes sense to none of you, but I am amusing myself.

May's Ipsy bag was called "Fresh Picks" and included items meant to be spring-like. I will apologize now, but this bag was very cream/serum-centric which means all talk, no pictures.
