How to pee away your time!

So lately I have been taking all of my spare time (which is currently copious) to watch YouTube video, after YouTube video, AFTER YOUTUBE VIDEO about makeup, hair, accessories, etc. I. am. addicted.

I’ve recently been introduced into this whole new world of drugstore makeup. Yup. Normally the only drugstore makeup I would use is mascara, but through the lovely ladies of YouTube, I have learned that there are a variety of products that surprisingly work just as well, if not better, than the high end brands at Sephora and department stores. The one that threw me off the most was Wet n’ Wild. Hah like seriously, I haven’t even looked at the Wet n’ Wild display since I was in elementary school picking out purple sparkly nail polish. Now they make great quality, highly pigmented and broadly used eyeshadows and blushes. WHO KNEW! Not I. So after watching 34989082349 YouTube videos, I made a wishlist of drugstore products and off I went to Wal-mart. I only got a few items off my list but here they are!

1. Wet n’ Wild “Comfort Zone” eyeshadow palette. 2. Wet n’ Wild lipstick in “Pinkerbell” (total knock off of MAC “Nicki” aka. the Nicki Minaj shade). 3. Hard Candy “Glamoflauge” concealer. This shiz can cover tattoos so I’m hoping it can take on my serious racoon eyes. 4. Revlon Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser. My dark circles are totally genetic but I’m hoping I can get better at hiding them away 🙂 5. Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Rendezvous.

THEN because you can’t watch a million YouTube videos without coming across a good DIY project, I went to Michael’s, grabbed some stuff and whipped up this little number:

I’ve wanted a Peter Pan collar for MONTHHHSS, but every time I find one it is 1 million dollars and I only have $5 sooooo…thanks Michael.

ALSO a big pat on the back to me because I managed to escape from Michael’s without buying any Christmas decorations. I didn’t get that willpower from my Mum, I’ll tell ya that. HAH, kidding Mum. Not really.

We got our Christmas tree up yesterday and it worked out beautifully, if you ask me.

If you ask Lemon…she disagrees.

HAH, we moved her squirrel watching chair away from the window and she. is. pissed. I moved it back over to the window because I couldn’t listen to her cry any more. Legit this dog will cry until she wins. And if you had that face would you ever lose? No chance.

That’s about all that’s going on in my life…I’d talk more about working out and things…but I have been hibernating, aside from teaching bootcamps. I’ve been out of the gym for a long time now (running and bootcamp only) and I am SO READY to get back in there. I miss the iron, I do, I do. Tomorrow!!

Do you have any sweet (..easy) DIY projects to share?

Favourite drugstore makeup product I have to try?

 

Hope everyone has had a great start to the week!

  1. Okay another post!! WOOO!! I think that makes like five that I had to catch up on tonight and this one JUST popped up!! How lucky am i?!?! Want to do my make up and make me a Perter Pan necklace because I have NO IDEA how to do either!! I definitely buy cheap mascara all the time but I’m not picky with brands. Usually if it comes in a cool fat tube, I’m good. The only other make up I wear is powder from Mac and bronzer from Nars. Both stupid expensive but meh. I like them. Slap on some chapstick and I’m ready!! I definitely never look as good as you though… Maybe YOU should start making videos!! 🙂

    • hahahah “usually if it comes in a cool fat tube, I’m good.” Let’s have a date in December!!!
