After 72 hours

Oh wow, how I miss civilization on the internet.  Sunday afternoon, a tornado hit North Minneapolis, MN at 29th and Logan, about 4 or 5 blocks away from my place.  Good thing, I was about 30 minutes away shopping at Ikea..  On our way back, we received a call from my boyfriend's brother telling us to take our time coming home because there was a tornado and the electricity had died..  We took our time and when we arrived on Broadway, there were so much damage buildings, cars, and trees everywhere.  Because of all of the damage done, the police had to make a curfew for our area, no one was allowed outside or around the area between the hours of 9pm and 6am, Sunday and Monday. 

Finally, after 72 hours later, we finally got our electricity back!  I felt so ugly going to work without being able to fix my hair because it wouldn't wave the way that I wanted it to.. But man, I am so glad to be back online and just having electricity in general.  The good thing while I didn't have electricity, I was able to start doing my cross stitching again.  My goal is to finish a Hmong outfit for the New Years in Thanksgiving.  So far, I think I'm ahead of my timing, but this is exciting.  Next time, or when I have more finished, I will post pictures. :)

Haul at Sephora and Target

Since I was so disappointed that I wasn't able to get anything from the NYX sale, I finally got my chance to hit Sephora yesterday.  I needed 16 more points to reach my 500 goal, and knowing that I still owed my friend her birthday gift, I got her the Hello Kitty makeup palette.  I'm no Hello Kitty fan, but the palette is pretty cute and the colors are very neutral.  And I was finally able to spend my 500 points and got me my Too Faced eyeshadow palette!  I must say, I love the colors, especially the silver!
Then I decided to hit Target and get me some ELF brushes. :)

 My friend loved the palette by the way. she's such a big Hello Kitty fan.  :)

And what I've been dying to get!!  I've played around with the colors a bit, but man, this is so worth it!

Nyx 12 hour sale

I'm sorry to say but this was poorly done.  I'm glad that I went to work and not wasted my time on front of the screen like some others, but it's been one hour and 30 minutes and I've been able to add 4 items slowly.. Knowing how big of a makeup company NYX is, I'm very disappointed in how they handled this sale.  Seriously, your going to be having a big sale with all of your products for only $1.20 and you did not expect to get a bigger server that will be able to handle all of your traffic??  That's just call being plain lazy..  However, I hope that this will end well.  My list of items wanted is pretty big.  I'm trying to be patient as possible.

Teal and Green look for contest

I've been into makeup for a while, but I honestly don't have the patience to view other people's youtube videos and learn all of these techniques.  So when I started my blog, I decided to start looking for other makeup beauty blogs and I came across, I'm amazed by their forum and website, so I decided to join their weekly contest.  Here's my results:

Blah.  Who am I to say...?  There's so many people out there who is so talented in makeup.. I'm no makeup artist, not even a wanna-be!

Final Exams

I've been super busy for the last couple of weeks.  I've got only one more final exam to go tomorrow and I should be done for the rest of the summer.  Oh how I can't wait. 

I need to go on a diet.  Over the last couple of years I've gained a ton of weight and I seriously lost all motivation to lose it again.  Me and the bf were talking about what we could do to motivate me and this is our conclusion, well at least my part of the conclusion... :)  For every paycheck (that's every two weeks), IF I work out and diet then I get to use up to $50 on makeup.. I came up with that, but man, I would totally love that because there has been a lot of items that I've got my eye on. :)  Anyways, I just dyed my hair back to black/brown, so I'm hoping to go get a new haircut today.  I still want my hair long, but I'm thinking of bangs...
