Goodbye Summer...

Hey there,
I hope everyone has been doing well.
I’ve been very busy with work and I’m dreading that summer is coming to an end. Boo!
I’ll just give you a quick update on what’s been going on in my life.
My job is getting ready to launch a new website, so I’ve been putting in 50+ hour weeks. I will never complain about my job because well, I have a job. These past few years were scary for most people, as businesses were closing or laying employees off. My job did not cut a single employee & still gave a bonus at the end of the year.
I’m trying to get the apartment in order. We just moved in & I’m slowly realizing that there is not enough closet space. So it’s time to organize & get rid of LOTS of things.
Dustin & I are trying to settle on some things for the wedding. My goodness, it is so stressful! We can’t decide on a venue or anything. Plus, why is everything so DAMN expensive? I mean there are places that want $55 a person for food. That’s more than our entire budget! Ahh, at least we have 2 years to get the basics down.
Last but not least, I’ve been on a hardcore diet. I tried on a pair of jeans that were a size 11/12, and they were tight! Are you kidding me!? Last year I was wearing a size 6 and I will NOT buy new clothes because I have let myself go! So it’s 1500-1800 calories a day with 5 days of cardio. I have to admit, I have been so hungry but my goal is to lose 7 pounds by October 1st. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I can stick to it and drop 25-30 pounds. Why is it so easy to gain weight & so hard to lose it!?

Have a great day! :-)

So I have 3 FOTD's to show you and some nails! FOTD #1 is my usual everyday look. Sometimes I will add false eyelashes, or for a pop of color I'll line my waterline with a bright eyeliner. 2 & 3 are fun looks! I would wear them out but not to work. Too much for the day! I finally got my nails done! I know how terrible it is for your nails, but my natural growing nails are so bad!! Enjoy!

Tag.. you're it!

Hi Everyone!
Long time since I've had a chance to update. I have a bunch of pictures to post but I haven't had the time. So you should see a post soon! (I'm hoping tomorrow!)

So I got a tag from the lovely Makeup by LisaMarie (if you haven't checked her out, you can do so here http://lisamarie337.blogspot.com/ .. she does some rocking makeup! )

So here goes nothing!...

-What's your Favorite Makeup Look?
BRIGHT! I love really bright everything! I've always loved vintage looks also. Pin-Up and Marilyn Monroe type makeup.

-What part of your Body do you Love?
I have really toned legs from skating all the time. I always get compliments on them.

-Who is your beauty Icon?
I LOVE Kim Kardashion. I think she is beautiful! I'm also a huge Marilyn Monroe fan. I think she is a classic!

-What Beauty Product makes you feel instantly good?
Mascara or false eyelashes. They both really brighten your eyes and make them POP!

-How do you look after your skin?
This is the first time in my life I haven't had persistant acne. I usually use a makeup wipe to take off all my makeup and then I wash my face with Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash. I apply Oil of Olay Active Hydrating Beauty Fluid twice a day, but I only wash my face once. I use a makeup wipe at night to take all my makeup off.

-What is your Signature Scent?
I absolutely adore Escada Rockin' Rio! It is fabulous! I only wear it on special occasions because I paid $112 for a small bottle. I usually wear Victoria's secret Love Spell or Victoria's Secret Heavenly as my everyday scent.

-What's your hair care secret?
I wash my hair twice a month. I know, it sounds gross. It has saved my hair! I used to wash my hair every morning and it was always super dry and would break off. But when I started going to beauty school I started washing it less and less. I use dry shampoo every morning. When I wash it I use a clarifying shampoo, moisturizing shampoo & a deep conditioner. I NEVER blow dry my hair. It makes my hair so dry and frizzy.

-How do you pamper yourself?
I get my nails done every two weeks. My work gets us massages once a month. I guess that's about all, I should really start treating myself more often!

-Finally, do you have a beauty philosophy?
True beauty is on the inside. I've known so many beautiful people that were truly miserable on the inside. I like to think I'm a good person, and I will bend over backwards to help anyone in need. That's how I have always been. I would much rather be known for being a nice, kind person than being only pretty. Looks always fade away.

I tag everyone that reads this! :-)

Have a lovely day!
