Makeup Geek Taupe Notch, Daydreamer

My mind just went blank.  What the hell was I going to talk about today?

I'm seeing more and more blogs end.  People's lives get in the way, passions change or they just do something different.  My blog will be five years old in May.  That's a long time in blog years as most of the older ones have stopped blogging but for a few of the bigger ones.

People who read blogs make up fantasies about that person's life.  It makes me wonder what you guys think my life is like just from reading my posts.  I bet you'd be very surprised to learn the truth.

Maybe someday I'll tell you.

Would it ruin the allure? Would it ruin the perfect facade you've created in your mind as to what I'm like?

I love to watch the TV show Snapped.  I think I've told you before that I am a voice person.  I have to like your voice if I'm going to date you etc.  On the show Snapped, the female's voice is just awesome to me.  I've been listening to her for years.  I made up a picture in my mind based on that voice what I thought she would look like.

Then I saw reality and I was totally wrong.  I had pictured her one way, but in real life she looks completely different.  Now when they show her face while talking, it seems like the voice is real, but the person is just lip syncing.  Does that make sense? I won't say it's ruined the show for me, but it's going to take a while for me to come to grips with it and change the picture I had in my head.

It's just like if you read a book and you picture a character a certain way then they make a movie and the person playing that character is not what you pictured in your head. Does it ruin the movie for you?

I don't want to ruin the fantasy you have about my life if you even have one.  Dayum.  I'm all sorts of full of myself even thinking you guys put that much thought into it.

Let's move on shall we?

This is Makeup Geek Taupe Notch, Pretentious and Bada Bing.  Ardell Natural lashes.  It was a very simple look so I didn't do closed lid looks.

This was a purple fest.  I was even wearing purple head to toe that day at work.  I was all matchy matchy.  This is Makeup Geek Dragonfly, Caitlyn Rose and Motown.  Ardell Natural lashes, which I am loving but they are so fragile I ruined a pair in less than a week.

I try to make a pair last a week and usually I can but these are going to require extra special effort.

I hope you like this!

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?

Makeup Geek Dragonfly, Lemon Drop

Windows 10 lasted a whole ten days on my computer.  I just couldn't deal with all the changes, the bugs and just didn't like it at all.  I went ahead and got my Windows 7 back.  What that did was corrupt several of my files and one I can't find to uninstall so I can reinstall.

I plan on calling Samsung this coming week, tried to do an online chat but they aren't open on weekends.  I know I can do the restore option, but I think I will lose the pictures I have uploaded since then for my blog etc.  I will keep you posted!  Just know I am happy to have my 7 back!

I've been keeping a list of songs to get on my iphone.  You guys know how much music means to me. I'm still old school and usually buy CDs, but this time, I just went with the songs I wanted and downloaded them.  At $1.29 per song though, I think I just spent about $20.  But it's all good.

What did I download you ask?

A BUNCH of Howard Jones songs as I cannot believe I don't own his CD.  I love love love him and am mad at myself for not having any to listen to the past years.   Same goes with Talking Heads-cannot believe I don't have a CD of theirs. Got a bunch of John Mellencamp AKA Cougar.  You know that song Jack and Diane of his? No I didn't download that one, but that song always gives me flashbacks to 8th grade and a sleepover at a friend's house.

That song had just come out yes people, I'm old, and we were playing that song and playing spin the bottle. There was only one boy there so he got to kiss all of us.  It is quite silly to think about now. But he must have felt like the sh*t kissing all us girls.

Let's see what else.  Oh two AC/DC songs.  Back in Black and You shook Me All Night Long. Classics.  As I sit here, I'm chair dancing to Howard Jones. So worth the money.  Lastly, I got Run DMC Christmas in Hollis.  Was in the movie Die Hard, which is my all time favorite movie and I always said I've GOT to get that song and it just sat on my iphone list.

Well no more!

Did you know the evil villain in that movie passed away? Made me so sad when I saw that.  I love him in Die Hard.  Yippee Kiyaa Motherf*cker.

All right let's do what we came here for.

This was sooooooo bright and loud that when I went into Ulta, the chick with the neon yellow hair commented on how cool I looked! This is Makeup Geek Dragonfly, Shark Bait and Ocean Breeze with Voltage in the waterline and Colourpop DTLA liner on top.  This was with Ardell Demi Wispies.

Next up is way different.

This was without false lashes.  I was running late and didn't have time, but one of my readers said she prefers me without lashes.  I don't like them here as I feel they are too clumpy.  But I just may do some days without lashes.  This is Makeup Geek Lemondrop, Yellow Brick Road and Poison Ivy.

I hope you have enjoyed this.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?

Enchanted Polish October 2015, Chaos & Crocodiles Narwhals Love Donuts

To those of you out there who know what colors these are by the title alone-you should get a kick out of the irony.

It's supposed to be 65F outside today and tomorrow.  I do believe that means most of the snow will be melted away.  I just didn't have the energy to play shovel the stones in my driveway yesterday, it's on my to do list again today, but I've got to tell you, I ain't feeling it.

Two weeks from the day I'm writing this, I'm headed to Myrtle Beach for my annual trek there.  It'll be the first time without my dad.  One thing we loved to do was go to this place called Overtime and play the trivia game. It's one where you play against people in the bar and across the country.  Dad was the one who always knew the answers.  Mom and I knew very few of them.  We usually were the only ones playing in the bar, and got a kick out of seeing our family name on the screen. Plus because we were the only ones playing, we got excited that we were in first place.

I told Mom it's best we don't go this year as we won't get any answers right!

Remember about my pay check fiasco? I happened to be in the elevator with my boss and she started defending the chick who messed up my pay.  Saying stuff like it must have been a computer glitch, that they just can't figure out what happened etc.  I told her how I had to walk all those city blocks and her response was, at least it's fixed now right?


What this tells me is that the chick who screwed me isn't getting the a** reaming she deserves.  I called my very high up friend's secretary and told her about this conversation and she was dumbfounded like I was.  All she could tell me again was that there are changes coming she can't tell me about, just know they will be held accountable.

That's all I'm asking people.

Let's get to the polish we have for today.

First up, is Chaos & Crocodiles Narwhals Love Donuts.

This is a soft pink, soft holo.  For you pink lovers, I'm sure this is making you happy right now! This was hugely popular on my Instagram page which tells me you people like pink! It certainly ain't my long pretty nails!

Next up is the opposite. Enchanted Polish October 2015.

That's right people.  I had to cleanse myself in black polish after wearing pink.  HAHAHA! Isn't this gorgeous though? I simply love it.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
