I haven’t posted in a while.. Mostly because I’ve drastically stopped buying makeup. Simply because I’ve started school and it takes up all of my time, plus trying to work for myself takes up all the other time I have.. so yeah.. I really want to get into some new stuff, not necessarily drugstore, so if anyone has any suggestions on new foundations, lipsticks, or anything else, let me know! In the mean time, it’s time to clean out my makeup bag again! I wish my friends lived closer so I could just give them all this extra makeup I have sitting around lol

How could I have forgotten

HOW AMAZING THIS REVLON COLORSTAY FOUNDATION WAS!

I’ve been ignoring it for weeks! but I knew today would be a loooonnnggggg day so I decided to reacquaint myself with this amazing foundation. Not only did it provide great coverage absolutely all day and all evening, it also stayed matte, which is something I really enjoy and unfortunately don’t get with many other foundations without having to touch up every few hours.

I think I’m rediscovering my love for this foundation and I’m so glad about it :)

So this thanksgiving I was definitely very thankful for Revlon.

Also Black Friday shoppers are evil

That is all

Eh

Drew Barrymore’s Flower foundation? an ok foundation. the best? no. The worst? NYX still holds that title in my opinion lol.

There are other foundations out there that can be better than this, but for drugstore it’s eh
I’m not even gonna review it because the foundation’s been out for over a year and at this point I can’t say anything that hasn’t been said before.
All in all, it made my skin a bit oily, which I don’t appreciate. and it has no SPF, which I also don’t appreciate.

Eh

just eh lol

Also I decided to bring it back with the pig tails today :) Highly successful ^_^

Flower Beauty Foundation

0081047401406_300X300I’ve been wanting this foundation for a while because it’s by Drew Barrymore and I really like her, but I’ve just never gotten around to finally buying the foundation.. Today, my fiance, decided he wanted to buy GTA and I decided since he was going to buy the game, that I would get something as well.. So as I am walking through the isles, I see that the Flower makeup is on sale and this $14 foundation is not $7.. After flipping out about it being half price, I got it and raced home with it and can’t stop looking at this pretty bottle lol
I’ll be trying it out tomorrow and I hope it’s as amazing as it looks.
I’ve heard some really good things about it, so I’m looking forward to it!

:D!

Little victories

Everyone that knows me know I have many talents.. Cooking is not one of them. I’ll make the simplest thing a total wreck in less than a second. When it comes to the kitchen, I am not fluent.
All of my childhood and adolescence, I never had to cook! I had my mother, who is awesome in the kitchen and never made me learn because I just didn’t want to. When I grew up and moved out, I was lucky enough to move in with people who not only accepted the fact that I was culinary deficient, but happily fed me and sometimes even tried to teach me new things.
Living with David, I’ve realized I’m gonna starve if I don’t learn something. Not only does David not know how to cook, but honestly, unless it’s attached to his PS4, there’s just no interest. So I’ve been learning. and failing.
BUT TODAYY!!!!!

I spent 4 hours making a lasagna

WHAT!?

HOW MANY HOURS?

4 hours. 1-2-3-4 <– hours.

WHY?

Because, damnit! I’m tired of not knowing how to cook! and it’s funny because all I ever watch is cooking shows! But I just don’t know how to cook!!!
At first, I was sure I was going to try to do something a la Gordon Ramsay, since I fckn love him right now. But then I found his cooking complicated and decided to go with a youtube tutorial by a guy named Chef John and he has a food channel called Food Wishes, and it is seriously awesome. He is hilarious and his food is simple and it always looks good.
So I decided on this recipe.
I followed TO THE TEE! I did everything the dude said! and at the end of the day, I had an amazing lasagna sitting on my counter, just waiting to ravished by me!

I was happy as hell, man!
This is the fist lasagna I’ve ever done, and possibly the fist thing I’ve ever been so hyped about because it wasn’t “eh” like most times. it’s fuckin awesome.

So as I continue this culinary journey of mostly fails, I can at least have one win. and it was a very tasty win :D

and how did it look?

well, i’m glad you asked ^_^
