Making it Happen

These last two weeks have been just about the most eventful two weeks I have had in a while..or at least in a positive way. First off I just turned 21 two weeks ago!!! And let me tell you I now know why people love happy hour so much. But that is besides the point, the real point I am shooting at is that I have spent wads and wads of cash on many things, and while my wallet lays empty in my purse, I am surprisingly at ease, and more importantly I am absolutely STOKED!!

Now I can't delay the biggest news any longer, so here it is, I just purchased and received my very first makeup artist brush belt!!!! I was browsing the Sephora site just for kicks(because of the friends and family sale of course), and somehow it went from "I'm defintely not buying anything", to "hey lets see how much the belt would cost with the discount", to "oh my gosh I must have this, and now!" Well this turnaround took all of a days time, but I had my justifications you know, in fact I am counting the days til I am going to a makeup artist in a runway show in just a few weeks.

So just a brief low down on the loot, I received 15 sephora professional brand brushes in this belt, and the belt can be worn over the shoulder or around the waist.


Ok so I was absolutely stoked when I had placed the order, I tracked it on UPS everyday, and you would think that would be enough to keep me satisfied for at least a little while. Now don't get me wrong, I WAS, AM, and will continue to be STOKED about the brush belt. But somehow on my trip to visit my boyfriend's family in LA I found myself perusing the Sephora website yet again(and this was literally like 2-3 days later, tops!) But anywhoo I randomly came across the Sephora Monopoly(which this is the very first I had heard of it). Long story made short, I bought one because if I REALLY LOVE makeup the way I claim to, then why wouldn't I buy it? Oddly enough it seems like this never took off as much as I would have imagined; I believe it came out in 2003 or 2004...and those are really rough guesses. It is currently scheduled to arrive on the 3rd of November, so I am getting very excited.

In other news I have made a little bit of a career plan for myself, and I thought it would be fitting to share it with all of you, because while I do plan to graduate from college with a B.A. in the next 1 1/2 years, I feel that with my everlasting obsession with hair and nails and makeup I NEED to give Cosmetology school a try. Not marinellos or some fancy private college, but I know of a community college by my family's house that has a really great program. I plan to become a hair stylist and hopefully branch out meanwhile into makeup artistry, so here's to dreaming!!

And I can't seem to get the pics up at this time, so I am going to work on that, I am so not good at computer stuff.

Have a fabulous Halloween!
