How is everyone's week going? Mine has been good. Finishing my last week of being full-time at work. School starts on Monday so I will be working part-time and studying full-time (18 hours, yikes!). I actually am really excited for school to start. This is my LAST YEAR until I decide to do my MBA, soooo yeah, I'm excited to get 'er done!!
I should have posted my birthday pics a while ago, but I just never got around to it. Blahhh. So I'll post them today.
But first, have y'all checked out the new MAC collection, Makeup Art Cosmetics? For my long time readers, they are releasing Cocomotion Pigment again, which I used in my One Eyeshadow Tutorial a couple years ago. I am going to redo that tutorial since it has copyright issues too (sad face).
I wasn't overly impressed by anything in the collection. Honestly, I was even thinking about not buying anything at all until I went online today and looked at the face charts for the collection. The only one that stood out to me and has SOLD me on buying the quad is the Fresh Approach face chart. I love the deep green in the quad... SHMEXY! Also, the pink matte blush looks nice so that may come home with me. And maybeeee the gold glitter. Maybe.
I'm lecturing myself to not get too much since I just got a few things from MAC a couple days ago online. I still need to make a video over it, which I will post on YouTube in the next few days.
Its my BIRFDAY
So as y'all know it was my 21st birthday a few weeks ago. I had a great time. Probably the best birthday thus far. Not just because I turned 21 (which is a gift in itself hehe) but the experience was the best. I got to spend time with my friends who I love and cherish AND I have my best friend/boyfriend in my life. I am lucky to have friends who I value and who enhance my life just as I hope I enhance theirs. And Mike is my other half so my birthday was the bomb.com!
Just as a note, if you decide to drink always ALWAYS have a designated driver. DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE!!!! OR I WILL HUNT YOU DOWN AND GIVE YOU A WELL-DESERVED SPANKING!!!! *Sorry for the little rant, but the big sister in me had to pop out hehe*
On my actual birthday, which was on a Monday at 12am, Mike and I went out to meet my good friend Ashley at a bar. We had a blast playing pool and drinking.
Then the following weekend we went out to a club in Dallas. Here are some pictures from my birthday week celebration:
Mike and I bought a new car together. Its a 2009 Suzuki Grand Vitara. Leather seats + sunroof... I likie
More pictures after the jump...
My first legal shot. Patron baby!
I have a thing for limes... LOL I know I look ridonkulous.
For that night, all I wore was foundation, liner, falsies & blush. Simple simple.
My friends kept feeding me shots... and I kept wanting them. Hey, you only turn 21 once.... a lifetime ;)
Birthday cake shots with my babe and our roommate, Adam.
My co-workers got me a cake at work :) This was my big ol' piece... yummm.
Mike & Stephie photoshoot at a bar in Dallas. We were out to watch his friend perform.
That's his rapper friend Vincent on the shirt LOL
The smokey eyes I did for my birthday party. I forgot exactly what I used, but I'll recreate it in a tutorial.
Smokey eyes + pink lips = my new fave combo!
I'm wearing MAC A Rose Romance lipstick. My current fave.
My fave sushi rolls. Spicy tuna with cream cheese & a cajun roll. My birthday dinner. My stomach wasn't back to normal after my crazy birthday drinking earlier in the week, so I didn't drink much during my party. Which is fine too, so I got to eat sushi since I didn't need anything else more sustainable.
My girls and I out at Liars Den in Uptown Dallas.
Babe and me. I love the Dallas skyline.... lovely.
A couple of my favorite girls. My dress & belt are from Forever 21.
Babe and me again :) He loves my badonkadonk almost as much as I do... ALMOST. (I take great pride in my badonk... lunges to the max baby!)
My girl Amanda and me. And Shauna, our roommate, in the background LOL
Dancing the night away with my babe.... I always laugh at this picture. CREEPER in the back!
What an amazing night :)
My next post will be a haul video from my recent MAC Pro purchase. And prolly an FOTD from today using a few of the products :) Talk to y'all soon!
