I had my oil changed in my car today. I hate going to the auto shop thing without my honie because I'm totally ignorant when it comes to cars. I'll admit it, I'm a pushover in that atmosphere, I don't know when to say no when they go off telling me what I need to fix in my car.
I ended up having them change my oil and wiper blades. The man installed some rubber wiper blades by Michellin (sp?) because supposedly they last longer since they aren't metal and won't rust, and they are contoured for better performance... that sounded good to me so I said go ahead. When I looked at the quote or receipt thing they gave to me, it was about $37 for parts and $40+, yes $40+, for labor. God that pissed me off. I'm paying more for labor than the actual service. My honie could have changed the wiper blades for me... I'm a friggin idiot sometimes. Oh well.
One good thing is that I was telling the guy that my front, left signal light wasn't working, and I asked for a quote on how much it would take to rewire it... he laughed at me and said it prolly was just the lightbulb that was burned out. I told him I didn't want to pay anymore, I'd rather spend my money on clothes or makeup :) So I went off around the mall (I was getting my car done at Sears), but for some reason I had an idea that it would be so awesome if he fixed my light for me. Anyways, I came back after 30 minutes or so and was waiting to pay at the register, when I saw my keys in a vinyl bag, used to hold customers keys and receipts when the job is done. I saw two bulbs, one BLACK bulb and one new. I was thinking to myself that I didn't tell the guy to fix it and if he did, I wasn't paying for labor because I didn't agree to it, I just asked. I know I was getting worked up for nothing :P In my business law class, we learned about some involuntary service thing, so I knew I wouldn't have to pay. Anyways, the guy came out and told me he changed it for me for free, and all I had to do was pay for the bulb which is like $2... woot! I'm really happy... my car isn't ghetto now :D
Like I said, I had 30 minutes on my hands so I ran around doing some errands, then stopped by MAC. I got really good tips this past weekend so I decided to buy some skincare items. I've been looking for a new scrub so I picked up some Microfine Refinisher. I fell in love with the Fast Response Eye Cream sample I got, it made my eyes look more awake and moisturized them oh so well. Applying concealer is so smooth now... lovessss it! I've been lemming Strobe Cream for a while, but I've heard a few negative things about it, that it makes a person look like a disco ball. I'm going to try it and see how it goes. And finally some Wipes since I'm running out, and it's the BEST makeup remover I've ever used.
I tried out the Microfine Refinisher tonight, and so far so good! At first when I started massaging it on my face, it felt a little harsh. The particles are really fine, almost like sand... I know I know it sounds horrid :D but it's not. I massaged it in a circular motion and after I got used to the fine particles, it felt really nice. It didn't hurt, it was just very very fine. It felt like it was taking away all the nasty dead cells of my face. After I washed it off, my pores felt nice and taut, and my skin was very smooth. It didn't feel dry either, I really liked the results! The directions says to use it only 1-3 times a week, so I'll prolly use it every other day. I'll keep y'all posted on how it goes! *crosses fingers* Hopefully no irritations!
For my sweet & patient anonymous reader who is attending a wedding this Friday, I put together my everyday look that I think would be pretty safe for a wedding. I suggest glamming it up with some falsies, and chose whatever lip color you like. I hope this gives you an idea on what you may want to wear, and if not, let me know, and we'll figure something out :D
To everyone else, I've gotten tons of requests for my everyday look. And this is it. My two HG shadows right now are Tete-a-Tint and Typographic, both being from the Matte2 collection (permanent). It's great for work too, I usually wear this during my leadership program's activities when I don't want to walk around with colorful makeup... not that professional I think.
You can't really see the color in the pictures, but I do think in real life, they make a difference. It's very subtle, but I always get compliments when I wear this.
