Happy Sucky Valentines Day To Me

Hi everyone!

I know I have been conspicuously absent, however, work and personal life have just imploded!

Things are hectic at work and we are on the forefront of another re-org! Does anyone else work for a company that constantly re-orgs?!?! I swear, it is every other year here! LOL!!  We are all just waiting to hear what our new roles are and, fingers crossed, no one gets let go!

On the personal side...I love the holidays! All of the holidays! I am a very celebratory girl! I also bring a lot of energy and joy to each and every holiday!

I have been COMPLETELY dreading writing this post but I have to let you all know eventually right?


 I hate to inform you all; especially after reading all of your amazing blog posts about your romantic and fun dates; my Valentines Day sucked....not just sucked...ROYALLY SUCKED!!!

I have been dating my BF for over a year now and my expectations were not met at all. Without going into more details, after finding out that he put ZERO thought into the day AT ALL - I decided to bail on even seeing him and stay home with my cats!!! That officially makes me the crazy cat lady but I don't care! I will not waste my time with someone that does not show me the same adoration and love that I show them!

So, this weekend is a do over for our Valentines. He apologized and seems to understand now that just because he thinks things are stupid, I do not! Also, if something is important to me, it should be important to him! So, we shall see how things play out...this may be the end for us or a new beginning, I just know that I deserve WAY more than I got last weekend. I hope everyone knows also that this is not a monetary thing. I would have been happy with a folded up hand made care that said I love you! He planned nothing! It was truly painful in my heart and made me feel so very sad!

I will keep you posted! Congrats to you all as your Valentines looked amazing and magical!! I am so happy for each and every one of you!!!

Happy Friday ya'll!!!

Ipsy rocks as always

Happy February everyone!!

Yeah!!!

It's almost Valentines Day!

I was sick last week so I was not able to update you at all. I am going to try to get you updated on all my subscription boxes from last month before the new ones for February arrive! HA

So, here we go...one of my favorites!!! IPSY!!

Every month for only $10 you get an adorable makeup bag filled with loot (many are full size products)...January's was so cute!! My purse contents has NEVER been so organized - I use these bags to contain everything from my 100 chargers to jewelry to change - oh, and makeup sometimes!!


Here's the whole stash all together!


This is so smooth and really goes on well and soaks into the skin around my eyes...maybe just because I am very dry in the Winter but I love this already! Just kinda small :-(


 A new blender/smudge  brush!!!


Urban Decay full size glide on lip liner...this is clear and after you line your lips; you fill them in with your color...LOVE it!


This is a cream eyeshadow. It is very pretty and metallic and I think it will be my new evening out color.


Smells amazing and feels so smooth and amazing...that is all!!


This is a really pretty full size copper color eyeliner! It twists up so no need for a sharpener...LOVE IT!


As always, IPSY was a huge success and I am holding my breath waiting for February's package!!! YIPPEE!!!!


If you like trying different brands and types of makeup you will love this!!! It is only $10 a month. Also, if you like getting a gift from yourself every month!!! If you want to sign up -here is the link for IPSY!!

Happy Monday and Happy February to you all!!!
