Fate and A change of heart.

For any of those interested...
I was going to make today's blog an announcement blog about a new blog about life I'm starting. I have been having anxiety attacks and need a form to vent. I actually do a lot of writing but never post anything. I was inspired by a few bloggers I follow to go ahead and start one.

My first "series" was going to be a story but I wanted it to be on a private blog that family couldn't find me on.
I was suppose to start that today, while I still plan to do this something happened..I was online and someone posted a challenge on my Facebook to talk about myself at whatever age the person who tagged me chose and here is what I got

My Age:16
What I wanted to be: Make-up artist/Hair stylist.
What I thought was cool: HGTV lol couldnt stop watching it
Bestfriend: Ana...No idea what happened to her lol

Well...This post caused an old friend of mine to message me asking what happened with my best friend seeing as how we had been friends for over 15 years..

Fate stepped in and made me write this post instead of starting my new blog. 

All last night I was thinking about my life and fate and coincidences. I got out of bed (hubby didnt miss me much, we had a minor argument
)  went downstairs and started writing about what I wanted to share with you all. I went to bed still dazed and confused (pardon the pun haha!) about fate.  

back to my old friends message... In hs I had the same bf for 3 years (big mistake) 
this guys best friend happened to be dating MY best friend...cute right? yeah. no. i know. 
my bf had a temper, and anger issues. Never with me though he just hated himself. My best friend was the exact same way. So today my ex's best friend asked me why I had a falling out with my bff (his X, are you understanding?) turns out him and my ex had the same type of falling out not so long after graduation. Aint that some shit? The city I live in, isnt too small, but its not huge but its small enough to run into people all the time. I have not ONCE ran into my EX turns out that his ex best friend has NEVER ran into my ex bff, yet me and him have managed to stay in touch after all this time. We both couldnt get over the fact that all this happened. They had been friends for over 15 years as well.

 It was nice catching up with him but it was sad to know that my EX and my ex BFF didnt get the psychological help they needed.
Its funny how life works. 

I will link the new blog when i have one....Till then ill be posting mini stories here...along with the usual mix of makeup and scrap booking:)

Todays post is beauty related because I can not seem to get inspired to make cards. I received my new stamps from the stamps of life a few days ago and I sat down, messed up 5 cards and gave up. My dad was sitting across from me and he just goes "wow you're way off today" and walked away LOL I was like wow...thanks?

So I then went online to look at other blogs and came across once specific post though caught my attention and its this one. Also, FYI the pics in my post I coppied from her post. 

The 2011 China Glaze Halloween collection.
I'm actually super disappointed with it:{

Maybe I'm being extra picky but I feel like there are already dupes of this out there and again maybe I'm being picky but it seems the only thing Halloween related is the names of the colors. What I was kind of expecting would be like and orange glittery crackle or Maybe a blood red glittery polish. Maybe in person I'll change my mind.

Same goes for their Christmas collection..Some of these look like the ones from last years. Although I will say I do want to buy the "Velvet Bow"  and "Champagne Bubbles" (looks like one from last years that I wasn't able to buy) Oh and doesn't "Tinsel Town" look like"Haunting" from the Halloween one?

What do you guys think? Am I being picky?
Be honest:)

I haven't posted but I have bought hundred dollars worth of scrap booking materials AND candle making things since I want it to be my new hobby. I have also bought hundreds worth of makeup, nail polish to be exact LOL and considering I buy my nail polish and nail things whole sale in LA I have TONS I would love to share. My goal is to catch up this week though. K? ummm Hope you are all having a great summer!

Lets play catch up!!!

Hello to all of you!
I know its been...what? A month now? well A lot has been going on and haven't really kept up with my blog.
 To make it easy on you I'll lay it out this way..

1.Where have I been?
Working more hours at the bookstore...I have my own office now!:) not bad!

2.Where else have I been?
Packing up the family restaurant! The economy finally hit us (even more). We (FINALLY) decided to close up so I've been packing up all the restaurant stuff and taking it home. Yes ME, no one else has really helped other than to unload the stuff at home. I think they were in denial but my way of coping was to just pack up and clean and get it over with before someone else did. I've even got our kitchen at home actually looking like a kitchen!

3. Am I sad about the restaurant?
DUH! it sucks! its like a breakup with someone of 7 1/2 years! It was there for my freshman year of high school to my graduation, actual break-ups, surgery, pets, friends etc.. but thats life and we all needed the rest. It was too much on all of us especially my dad to be working 12-14 hr days! and with this 2nd job really working out for me it all worked out. BUT...I'm not crying over it, even though a lot of customers are telling me "you need to be sad!" UMM.... no I don't... it was becoming a burden. Please don't tell me how to feel.

ON A SIDE NOTE: What is this world coming to? It's like people thrive to see others fail. Ive had at LEAST 4 customers act all sad and say "I'm so sorry" and the minute they see me being positive or grateful for the weight off our shoulders lifted and thankful that my mom brother and me all have other good jobs they get outraged and pretty much demand for me to be hurt?
Shouldn't they be happy we didn't end up on the streets like others? that we have jobs to fall back on?
Oh and did I mention that these are customers that have been there with us from the beginning? customers I thought were nice, loyal and decent friends? aye.

4. Whats this 2nd job?
at 1st it was just cashier at a Catholic bookstore..
Now I'm in charge of all the accounts of a monthly CD club thats also Catholic based.
ALSO, right now I'm in charge of all the vendors of the annual Catholic Family Conference in July:)
My mom and brother work at the parent company of the bookstore. A catholic organization. I'm not a very religious person  but I've always wanted to work here, my brother has worked for this company since like 1997(ish?)

I never said my blog was specifically makeup fashion related because I didn't want to just blog about makeup (which I have bought A lot of in the past month)
I think there is beauty in everything and as those of you who actually read my blog know I also love scrap booking. With that being said. My next post will be a blog hop. It'll actually be 4 posts and a giveaway.

So, are any of you still reading this? yes? no? let me know!!!!:)

Okay so I haven't been doing my nails in a while because they've become very brittle and thin for some reason.
Finally they've gotten stronger:) and this is why...

The nutra nail growth treatment(left) I started using in hs. It claims to make nails stronger and longer within 5 days, I can honestly say that is 100% true! I started using it again last Wednesday when my nails were very short and now they're way stronger and most definitely longer! It's an oil that kind of absorbs into the nail.
The sally Hansen green tea + bamboo is like a base coat, with this the claims are similar to the nutra nail growth but I don't really see a difference but I do feel it. When I apply it my nails do feel a little stronger but doesn't really do much.

Here is what I used after the nail treatment and base coat.

Here is the end result. My hand has gotten slightly sloppy and thats why the silver lining  is a bit thick.
hope you like:)

MINI haul:)

Ok I was going to make this haul into a video BUT... I forgot my makeup at home (I'm at the bookstore) and I look like a mess and I also forgot my camera and I just don't like how my iPhone washes me out..

I know I've been MIA for a while and that because I have been doing a lot of card making, I have an order to make for invitations to a quinceanera and things have been hectic and will continue to be hectic until the end of April:/ This week though, I did manage to save a bit of money and get a few things I've been wanting.

from left to right
elf glitter gloss, elf blush, mango cuticle oil, and hard candy glafoflauge concealer.

This was $3 and the color is fuchsia fusion,
its a bright pink with tons of shimmer:)

The glitter gloss is in the color Glam guava
in the picture it looks pink but its more of a copper pink with hints of coral.

The swatch of the blush didn't come out like I had hoped but you can see the shimmer. When you apply it, it goes on very bright so you don't need to use a lot of it. and the shimmer isn't over powering:)

Oh and the mango cuticle oil claims to be "the ultimate remedy for excessively dry skin, cracked heels and patches" it smells amazing and so far it's been working well. I bought it Thursday and I've only used it once and so far my cuticles have been better.
Also the glamoflauge concealer, it's good for my face and blemishes but for under my eyes it just doesn't look good:{
