Hey, guys! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty fabu because it was my birthday this past Saturday. (Enter loud applause here.) LOL
I had a great time and, in fact, plan to carry out the celebration of my life for the rest of the month. Maybe even longer, who knows? All I know is that I am getting a lot of things lined up and really want to start enjoying the small along with the big, you know? Also, I am working hard on shedding the old and embracing the new. So, I'm not going to drag on and on in this post, but I did want to share at least my b'day eye look and hair. Now be forewarned - the pics are NOT the greatest. They were taken with my phone, but - hopefully - you'll get the gist.
I decided to go with curls this weekend instead of my normal straight style. It looked cute, but trying to sleep in the old school, hard plastic rollers I had to wear in order to keep the curls cute was murder!
My eye look, which I like to call my "peacock" look, was created with a combo of Make Up For Ever, Inglot and MAC eyeshadows. I used NARS' eyeshadow base underneath it all.
Oh, this is me walking away from my friend because they were trying to annoy me. On my b'day?! Not up in here!
Earlier, I went to see Skyfall, the new James Bond movie. Overall, I liked it, but I understand why it's getting mixed reviews; the beginning and end were the best parts of the movie: action-packed and very Bond-like. The middle was a little too talky. Seemed like they were really trying to fill out the Bond character by making him almost too human. Flaws and all. Something the originals never bothered with. I mean, I know this is a newer, more intense Bond, but out-of-the-world gadgets, kooky villains and straight espionage is what makes a Bond movie fun. I don't need to be able to relate to him on a human level. I want James Bond, the debonair secret agent, not Jimmy Bond, the everyday guy that just happens to fight bad guys. But I digress...
Later I went out to eat and had a drink *gasp*! Yes. I know to
most, this is not a big deal, but I don't drink. Anywho, I felt like
being a little bad for once so I ordered a Mojito. And it was really
good. Really, really good! Man, I'm glad I don't drink because I would
be a total lush. Seriously. Hmm... I wonder what kind of drunk I
would be? Oh, I would def be the talkative type. The one who would
bend your ear with her whole life's story and then laugh out loud at her
own jokes when everybody else is awkwardly silent. Yep. That would be
Well, on the flip side, I was extremely good concerning
gifting myself. I didn't go crazy at all. I only bought a blush brush
(which will be my next post) and a blush from MAC (which I will talk
about later, as well).
Every b'day I try to do something and/or
learn something new. I'm still adding to the list as much as I'm
subtracting, but I'm really trying to enjoy the process in the
meantime... which, of course, I'll share in upcoming posts.
