just because

~just because flowers and a splurge


I am so excited to own this palette. I am even more excited that I get to call the kindest, most generous, loving and wonderful fiance, husband soon.

I have coveted this palette for a few months now. I silently yearned for this beauty, and after one tiny brief remark to my loving fiance, these bad boys are mine.

Bad boy meaning the beautiful Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette but even more so meaning the amazing and wonderful fiance, that took my ‘….if you ever wanted to get me something, like ever, here’s an idea…’ comment and treated me to this wonderful palette the very next day! Then I get flowers delivered to top it all off? During the first week back to school? How did I get this lucky?! (Note to Self: remember this for future arguments, J-1 million L-0)

I definitely plan to review this, once my nerves calm from the excitement of blending these oh-so-buttery shades.

Stay tuned!!

Thanks for the lookie loos lovlies~

Blog-cation and what I’ve been crafting!

BLOG-CATION 

Ello Loves!! I seem to have taken an unintentional blog-vacation for the past few weeks but summer time is unavoidable for fun and laziness, ….and summer time in TEXAS is nearly unbeatable (specifically when you find your local pool!) wpid-img_20150619_191243237.jpg

Summer has come and stayed in my neck of the woods (which really isn’t wooded at all) but I do get humongous woodland creatures from time to time. such as this mammoth sized butterfly. I could have reached out and let it crawl on to my hand it was so close. But alas, the heepie geebies of having something crawl on you prevented that, I promise you!

CRAFTING

Since having almost nothing require my brain to work any harder than channel surfing, I’ve had a boom in creative and crafty urges to tempt my procrastinator soul. I’ve cracked out my old sketch book and compass, bought watercolor pencils and paper, made my own travel sketchbook, created a few Harry Potter crafts and even bought a quill and inkwell of India ink.

I have never been the best at drawing but my mind won’t stop trying to make it a thing. I also have terrible penmanship, but again, my hands won’t stop trying to improve. I’ve realized using a quill and ink makes my cursive bearable. WHO KNEW!? I also feel like I’m writing love letters to a time traveler every time I bust out my DIY Suede covered journal.

I’ve also taken up acrylic nails again. These poor minuscule natural nail beds of mine aren’t cutting the amount of nail polish I want to wear! Thanks to a cheap bundle kit from Amazon, I now have plenty of excuses for doing nails every single day….I have even converted my ‘Halloween severed-hand’ into a chic silver practice hand/client, named Toby. He loves to get his nails done, I tell ya! He’ll just sit there for hours and let me paint!


Looking forward to getting back into the groove of crafting and blogging. Hope everyone’s had an amazing summer so far, and can’t wait to get back to school!
