My Yellow Green Eye Look and a Selfie

Last night when I was putting my book away and getting ready to turn off the light, I looked down at the floor and I kid you not, it was Cujo the freakin hugest spider on my rug.  This thing was hairy and big (needs to be repeated here) and at least the size of a 50 cent piece.

To my international peeps that's about 3cm!

This is one of those few times when I wish I had a man in the house.  I love spider webs, I've told you that, but I have a deal with the spiders.  I don't mess up your web, you stay outside.  It scares me to wonder how something that big even got in.  And what if I hadn't seen it? Would it have crawled up onto my bed and on my face while I slept?

Yes people, this is where my mind goes.

I jumped up, grabbed a paperback book-it's what I have handy by my bed and squished the f*cker.  I then got my tongs and a paper towel and scooped up the remains.  I am still in shock over it.

Another story for you.  When mom was here, she bought a tea light thingy from Yankee Candle.  It holds three of them and it was plastic, had pretty Christmas Holly on it.  It was nice.

Then mom lit candles in it.

Apparently, a few minutes later, it caught on fire! You see it's thin plastic and the tea light holders are too close to the plastic and yup, fire.  She put it out so nothing awful happened, but the potential is there you know?

I called the company and told them of this, asking them to please take this product off the shelf, that someone was going to get hurt or worse. I asked dude to take this seriously and make sure higher ups and the lab checks this out. I was also asked to send an email with the story and pictures. Which I did.

Imagine my chagrin when I got up this morning to two form emails asking me to one-write what happened with pictures (WTF?!?!) and two-to return it to the store for a refund.

This only tells me that no one bothered to read past my subject line which read "defective product." As I had sent them pictures and the story and a refund was not my purpose for contacting them. This morning, I tried to leave a review on the product page, but it has to be reviewed by them before it posts so who knows if it'll even be shown.

We did our part.

This post I decided to do something a little different.  I actually took selfies at work as well as the closeups and at least for this post I'm putting them all in one.  I may change things up again in the future.

This was a look I wore last Thursday at work.  I went bright and cheerful and YELLOW.  You heard me right people.  And it was freakin cool as all get out.  I forgot I own the Morphe Brights palette and you bet I plan to use more of that one soon.

Here is my selfie.  Ignore that it is taken at work, in the bathroom.  I tried to figure out how to remove objects from photos, but my Photoshop is too old a version for that.

Use your imagination people. I look better with fresh makeup and not after a hard day's work!

I can't believe that after almost five years of refusing to show my face, I am now intentionally doing that very thing! So this is what I wore.  Here is another view.

This is with my new Cover FX foundation in P40, Kat Von D Contour palette, Makeup Geek Shadows. Ardell Wispies lashes, MAC blush, Ofra Cosmetics Sao Paolo liquid lipstick.

I need to write down what colors I used.  Hell if I can remember now! Here are the close ups.

I do know there is Lemon Drop, Pixie Dust, Fortune Teller and Jester in this. Maybe some Poison Ivy.

Isn't this cool? And the full on look is so very me isn't it?????

At least I was digging it.  Mom says I'm too pale and this wasn't her thing.

I'm ok with that.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
