I’m Back! and I’ve got Mascara – Lancôme Hypnôse Doll Lashes November 27, 2011

I am now officially married! Hurray. Jared and I have been together for about 3 years and we tied the knot on 11-11-11 on a cruise ship. For the special occasion I wanted special eyes (more on that later) so I figured I’d invest in a super nice mascara that I’ve been lusting after.  About a day before I left to go to Texas for the wedding, my doll eyes kit arrived (lash primer, mascara, and liquid liner), so I just grabbed it and brought it with me without trying it.  Remember how I liked  Lancôme Hypnôse Drama? I figured this would be just as good if not better.  I was smart and brought two other mascaras I’ve used and liked before just in case this was not the miracle eye I’ve been looking for.

Did I end up wearing it for the wedding? no – and here is why.

If you are reading this, it means I just got married! This is indeed a scheduled post and I am not writing to you all on my wedding day, but I figured you might want to join me in my celebration virtually! We’ve just left the port of Galveston (based on the scheduled time) and are on our way to an adventure of the western Caribbean aboard Royal Caribbean’s Mariner of the Seas.  I’m not going to have any other scheduled posts for the duration, but if I get bored I might use my phone to share a few photos!  Be well, and I’ll see you again after the 20th!

 

Fall Back November 5, 2011

Filed under: General — slagoon @ 12:00 pm

If you US location observes daylight savings time it is now time to “Fall Back” tonight (Technically tomorrow at 02:00). You will need to turn your clocks back 1 hour (so if you go to bed at 9pm then right before you turn in you should set your clock to 8pm).

If you have a smart  phone and you have automatic date/time set and don’t have anything disabling DST then you should be good to go, but check your microwaves, ovens, most cars, and your handy wrist watch to make sure they are ok – remember VCRs? If you have one of those you should check it too – you don’t want to taping an episode of The Young and the Restless – Is that still on?

Anyway – enjoy the extra hour of beauty sleep or the extra hour to party!

Look at what was featured on Influenster.com ‘s facebook page

If you didn’t get a chance to watch the video before I suggest that you watch it now – if nothing else you will get a horrible song stuck  in your head which will make me giggle!

Did you all survive Halloween last night?
