Get out and VOTE November 2, 2012

During the last Presidential Election only about 50% of the population who are able to vote voted. That means that only half of the country decided who would make the laws and affect change.  For those of you who think voting your conscience is still wasting a vote because your state is always different than you or because no one from your party ever gets elected…it isn’t.

No-Buy December 6, 2011

I am officially on a self imposed no-buy until february – and that is for everything – makeup, household gadgets, electronics, movies…

Have you ever been on a no-buy?  I realized, just before the wedding that my spending was out of control – I had TONS of expenses that were unnecessary, just items that are fun or nice to have. Here I am, trying to save up and buy a house, but I have no savings because I keep spending it. *Sigh*

The good news is that I still have TONS of makeup I haven’t reviewed yet, I have two subscriptions to sample boxes (birchbox and myglam) and I should continue getting items from Influenster.com to share with you.

Coming up this month I will have 12 days of Christmas nails and at least 2 more mascara reviews in addition to my very tardy review of the original Naked Palette.

Speaking of Christmas, I will say Christmas and not Holiday or Winter because I do celebrate Christmas, and while you may or may not I do have the right to my beliefs and you have the right to yours. I’m sick of all the PC stuff about not saying Christmas just because some people don’t celebrate it. ok – I could rant about this for hours but I won’t – thats as political as I will ever let this blog be.

If you havent already checked them out, please check out my photos of my wedding and vacation. If you check out my wedding photos you will see my super awesome makeup that Shanelle at Pacific Artistry taught me to do.  If you are in the seattle-metro area and want to learn to  apply makeup like a pro or just want help creating a special look just contact her and she will help you out*.

I’ll write again soon! enjoy the egg nog!
