I’m so sorry I was inactive since my last post. It’s been a few weeks. At the same time, I had been spending all of my time cramming and studying for my NCLEX examination which was yesterday morning. At first, I walked out thinking I was such a failure as my test shut off at 108 questions. A little more than 75 (typical passing amount) but definitely not 256. I was so distraught, but I remember hearing from other people that if you keep trying to re-register to schedule another exam in 45 days and it keeps throwing you out, you passed. So far, I’ve tried 4 times; once right after the test, once in the evening and twice after midnight. So far, it’s been “the good pop-up” telling me I cannot re-take the examination. Now, I am going to keep an eye out for my license number!
Yeah. I did. I started a Youtube channel and you can follow me here: Sarabeexo The idea for the name comes from grade school. Because there were two Saras in my class, I was always referred to as Sara B. Hence, why I chose Sarabee. It’s a grounding reminder of where I come from and the things I struggled through to become what I am today; as well as being the ugly duckling and now, a fabu-ugly-duckling.
The whole point of the channel is for me to basically just give my viewers/readers what I know in a more detailed format and I feel like it is also becoming a more popular way of blogging. While I will not abandon anyone here, I will reserve this blog for more personal posts, lots more daily life photos and less reviews, hauls, etc. Except for my weeb crap. You guys are stuck with that. Soz not soz.
Those of you who follow me on Instagram have recently noticed a change in the photos that are trending my feed. As I develop my freelancing MUA (makeup artist) skills, I document my looks. Sometimes, I follow other tutorials, just to get a feel for a certain look or to learn new techniques from different points of view and other times, I try to come up with something all on my own even if it doesn’t quite work out. It’s really become one of my favorite hobbies.
This is not only one of my absolute favorite looks, but it’s also my most popular so far. I received many compliments for this fantasy look which was inspired by Nicole Guerriero on Youtube. Feel free to subscribe to her channel for more makeup tips and routines.
This look I did for Valentine’s Day using matte purples and matte pink from Milani. The look was inspired by LoehyLane on Youtube who had done a similar look back in Autumn. I wanted to do something besides pink, red and gold for V-day as that seemed to be one of the most popular things to do this year. I wasn’t trying to go against the grain, per se, I just am not good at working with glitter looks right now.
My little Milani collection. These rose blushes are part of a limited edition release. They press a lot of their blushes into rose patterns, but they only release them in certain colors. There is a third, darker blush I am still trying to hunt down from this release. It’s almost always sold out at CVS despite it!!
