The end, the holidays

Sorry that I disappeared for a little while! Things are finally coming to a close with school I graduate on the 23rd of next month I’m just so awash in ups and downs right now as we wind down with final presentation projects, clinical exits, NCLEX paper prep.  I’m all over the place so, this is just a picture post of what I’ve been up to this past week. Really, it was just Jordie and Ann Marie’s birthdays. I never really celebrate mine with anyone so, I didn’t include myself except to hang out and celebrate their party.  I spent half the evening winning rilakkuma dolls for Flora, myself and my husbando! On a side note, it was International Lolita Day as well.

Happy Halloween!

Last weekend we went up to Chumash and played a little bit. Richard didn’t win anything so he was pretty bummed, but Lady Luck seems to be my bae because I kept winning. My total payout was around $200.  It was amazing! I thought I only won like $30 but when I cashed out, I got this instead:

It was awesome. 

On Monday, I got a wild hair up my @#% and went into ULTA. They’ve really changed since I was last in there. I’m not really a big fan because they used to just be really meh as far as what they carried. Turns out, they carried pieces of Too Faced’s holiday set that Sephora didn’t get? At least, not at my Sephora.

Sugar & Spice, & Under the Mistletoe lip piece set.

More neutral/warm tones than the Everything Nice palette.

The palette’s case and glitter makeup pouch behind it. This one is not as messy as the Everything Nice case. The glitter doesn’t come loose as easily.

Under the Mistletoe set. These lip creams came with their own glitter pouch. They’re all shimmery to a degree, the color on the far right being the most shimmery.

Colors: Shimmering Marshmellow Bunny, Shimmering Nude Dolly, and Shimmering Spice Spice Baby

These aren’t hyperpigmented so you really need to put a primer or concealer base on your lips before using them. They have a gritty texture from the glitter but if you’re ok with that sort of thing, these are perfect. The tubes are to die for. I love the gold so much they are part of my vanity set up.

Extra stuff I picked up, NYX Simply Vamp lip crayons, shimmer eyeshadow pencil, and nail polishes from O.P.I and China Glaze in fall/Halloween colors.  Couldn’t help myself, I really love coordination nails to the season.

Spoil yourself a little every day.

Lately, I’ve bee spoiling myself with little purchases here and there.  I’m like on this self-worship kick. Every girl needs those days, I think.

First, I bought these Physician’s Formula products. From left to right: Nude Wear Bronzer, Nude Wear Concealing Stick, Nude Wear Blush and Rimmel x Katie Holmes lipstick.

These are more for my au natural looks. I’m starting to dabble in bronzers thanks to the Everything Nice palette from Too Faced. Everything is going ok, it’s easier than I thought.

After like…a freaking year of checking and searching, my Sephora finally restocked the KISS series from Kat Von D. I was able to get Gothica just in time  for the full swing of Autumn.  I’ve been looking into orange/brown/dark reds for Autumn because they feel so warm and still remind me of chilly weather!

Skin test and worn photo of Gothica. It’s almost mauve on wipes and in the tube, but applied, it’s actually more of a soft orangey color with glitter.  It’s witchcraft, I tell you.
