Do You Know What Today Is….It’s My Anniversary

(I wrote this yesterday)

Well it really was yesterday but that is neither here or there. Yesterday April 15th marked my one year anniversary of being employed with the company that I am at now. Just for safety reasons I am not going to name the company just know I am excited to have been with the company for a year. It was hard at first adapting to the new work life but it has been an amazing ride.

Wednesday’s Chit Chat session:

Work: I am enjoying work. I have met some great people along the way and learned many new things. I cannot say that I can see myself here for a long time but I can see me doing another year just to continue to gain experience and take some classes along that way that would further better my career. God has blessed me with the opportunity to work in the field I majored in and be able to see the many different components to IT (Information Technology).

Life: I could write a book about this lol. On a serious note I have been going through a rough stage. Not enough to bring me down but just enough to make my spirits low. I am doing my best to get over this hump and understand that there is always better. I have just been feeling so lost lately, as if I am unaware of what direction to take. Again, I am working on it. Trying to keep myself stress free and focus on the future.

Because of how I have been feeling I have not been up to blogging much. That sucks for me because I enjoy makeup and my beauty blog is suffering. I hate to BS my way through a blog because that is not me I like to give everything that I do my all. I am looking up on things and attempting to make some moves and set some goals.

On a much positive note, I have been looking into certifications to get to further my career goals. While working here I have learned a lot about what certain companies look for. Also I have been car shopping. I know I am late on the bandwagon of buying a car but I had to work with what I had. I will most likely be getting it Memorial Day weekend. I have narrowed down my search and I am going for the 2014 Dodge Avenger.

I am back with the flow. Its so many things that I want to blog about. I have to remember to make the best of life because you only get one. I trust that God has the best plan for me I just need to follow and let him take the lead.

I do not have much of an audience when it comes to my beauty blog but it is something that I love to do. I am slowly but surely trying to put my beauty blog out there. I will link it below.

Good Friday Chit Chat

On this Good Friday, I sit here in think…should I go to church on Sunday. Should that even be thought? God has answered my prayers continuously and have blessed me beyond measures. Am I wrong for not going to church? I love the Lord and I do my best to live how he wants me too. One of my goals is to “belong” to a church. But where to I start? How do I get comfortable? I just have so many things going through my mind as I sit here in deliberation about attending church on Easter Sunday. I believe that it does not make my Faith, Trust and Love in God any different. For some reason I want a validation.

Wherever my path my lead me on Sunday. I know that I praise God and I thank him for the things that he has given me. I thank him for allowing me to see another day. He gives me the strength to keep going. God I ask that you bless me to continue to live right, to forgive me of my sins and to help me through times of confusion. I have faith that you will guide me on what to do. You always answer my prayers God and I want to say Thank You.

Jesus died so we could live…I just want to say Thank You.

Love Always

You deserve the kind of love you would give someone else.

Rainbow! My Makeupgeek Eyeshadow and Pigment Swatches and a Super-Quick Review

Ah…. what’s better than affordable, beautiful shadows?

I picked out 24 shades and 4 pigments from the Makeupgeek (MUG) line for review, and here they all are. You’ve already seen me use Latte shadow and Afterglow pigment in a red eyeliner look a while back.

But I figure I should swatch everything and let you see them before I forget. 

All swatches are done on bare skin, without primer, without wetting.

My verdict:

Love the pigments I got. Liquid Gold is just incredible, and I can just imagine Paparazzi applied wet as a thick sparkly liner. Both the soft champagne shades are beautiful as well, though one is sheer and sparkly, the other is satin.

Shadows-wise, I did find some of the matte and sparkly shade felt a little gritty when touched, and Stealth, Bitten and Latte were probably the patchiest of the shadows here. You have to make sure your lids are either completely dry, or else covered with an even layer of primer so that everything goes on evenly. And press/pack your matte shadows on. Don’t buff these.

The black shade, Corrupt, on the other hand, felt gritty and grainy, but it went on beautifully and was absolutely jet back even without a base. Worth getting out if you can’t seem to find a good black shadow.

As for the metallics, most of them are beautiful and smooth. My top picks are: Homecoming, Cosmopolitan, Nautica, Shimmermint, Pretentious, Twilight.

For those of you outside of the US, ships internationall and prices start from US$6 for smaller orders.
