Having a social life

I haven’t written here in years I feel like! So many things to do in the upcoming months…I’m feeling pretty stressed about it so I don’t think I can write here too much for awhile. I know- but by this summer I’ll probably be able to write in here everyday and talk about my frivolous life. But before I go I guess I’ll post about what I did during the weekend Harry was here!

My coworkers and I decided that we need to give others the impression that we had a social life. So Harry, my coworkers, and I went to Gloria’s for dinner. The $3 margaritas were truly awesome. Unfortunately I only took sips since Harry decided to gulp down three margaritas that day. We all then went to go see the Hunger Games in the theater. I don’t think the movie was that exciting…and honestly I’m kinda disappointed about the ending of the whole series that I lost all spark for the whole thing.

Harry and I had wonderful dates together this past weekend. We went to the Fort Worth Zoo together. It doesn’t compare to the San Diego zoo but it’s supposedly top five in the nation?

Okay so enough animal pictures. We also wanted to go to Six Flags but we stupidly went on a weekday only to realize they’re only open on weekends right now. So we instead went around downtown Dallas and explored the city. Then we went to Main Event and played bowling. It was actually really fun since we both felt no shame in being terrible at it and we could play all we want. We ate Boiling Crab during his stay here …and it was all right. I actually love Crawfish Hut in Atlanta better for their flavoring. But the Boiling Crab crawfish were big, fresh, and juicy. Gah i love crawfish! can’t wait to eat it again…after all it’s the crawfish season!

I miss him already despite the fact he left couple of days ago. No time to ruminate on such thoughts though I guess.

To distract myself all the more…I’ve bought a ton of makeup this month:

Such as ELF blushes! I got three blushes for 9 dollars and free shipping at Target. I know it’s amazing! And the quality of these blushes are fantastic for its price. Long wearing, highly pigmented, applies smoothly, etc. My favorite one right now is Fuchsia Fusion. I thought it may be too cool for my skin tone but it’s actually a nice pink flush with large silver speckles. I heard it’s very similar to Nars Angelika. The other two colors I got were Mellow Mauve and Candid Coral…but I may give the Candid Coral one to Cat or Christine since they have fair skin tones. The candid coral looks like a highlight color to me. Mellow Mauve is a great color too but more for fall or winter.

While Harry was here I also bought MAC’s Treat Gently tender tone. These were sold out in most places so I was excited to get one! I haven’t used a lot of MAC cosmetics. The last ones I’ve tried were called Slimshine lipsticks and I didn’t like them because they were too creamy…they didn’t last that long on my lips. But since everybody and their mother seems to like MAC products I’ve decided to try them again. The tender tone smells so delicious. I was wary of it at first because the color was green, but it actually just looks like a sparkly gloss when worn. These tender tones are nice because they don’t dry out my lips after I wear them for a long time. They feel slick and glossy. I tried Hot n Saucy in the counter and was almost going to buy it. However, once I did apply I realized it smelled like cherry…which I dislike. So I ended up not buying it.

And this last one I’m sharing with you I’m really excited about.

My first time using Benefit makeup products. This kit was 38 dollars which is amazing because the blush by itself is 28 dollars. Basically you get the other two (Stay don’t stray and eye bright) full size for 10 dollars! There’s also the high beam but the one in this kit comes in .13 oz when the deluxe size is in .45 oz. Bella bamba is such a gorgeous color on my skin tone. The blush gives a nice watermelon pink color to my cheeks with shimmer. And the smell of the blush is so delightful. I think the blushes are worth their price…I may try their other ones. I haven’t tried the other yet but maybe I’ll let you know what I think of the others. But already I’m blown away by this value set…just for the price and the quality of the blush.

Going to Atlanta next week! Maybe just maybe I’ll let myself update then.
