Update and Almost-Post-Undergrad Hauls

I don’t know where to start, or maybe the fact that it’s unknown could be a start.I have been spending days, weeks, months poring over the last remnants of my undergrad requirements until I finally start that long-awaited march in October. It had been an emotional roller-coaster ride (if you use LiveJournal, my personal thoughts are poured over there) and from a long talk I’ve had with a mentor last night, I can look back at the experiences with laughter, a bit of melancholy and a huge serving of life’s lessons. ๐Ÿ™‚

But I am not going to bore you with tears and all, this is a beauty blog after all! ๐Ÿ˜› So for the past few months, I have been hauling to, sort of, stand as my retail therapy. It’s those bits and blobs that make my day a little bit cheerier than usual.

Picture 1: Wet n Wild Megalast nail polishes in Private Viewing, Bite the Bullet, Candy-licious, Sugar Coat; Rimmel blush in Santa Rose, pretty dangling earrings, a travel-sized Victoria Secret’s Sheer Love lotion (LOVE the scent!)

Picture 2: Milani single eyeshadows in Antique Gold, Java Bean, Sun Goddess; Nichido single eyeshadows in Gold Foil, Bronze Eclair; The Face Shop Make Me Star Waterproof Gel Liner in 06 (wore it last night; a smudge-proof, stay-all-night hunter green with gold flecks)

Picture 3 and 4: swatches! โค

Picture 5: Wet n Wild 8-Pan Eyeshadow Palettes in Petal Pusher and Comfort Zone

Picture 6: Caress nail polish in Metallica, Sassy Colors nail polishes in Starstruck, Arabian Nights, Bewitched; Essie nail polish in Good As Gold (my first high-end polish; a bit of splurging won’t hurt, will it?)

Picture 7: Miss Beauty sand nail polishes in 03, 06, 13 (gritty, matte and it really feels like sandpaper on your fingertips)

Picture 8: discounted mini Max Factor nail polishes in Diva Coral, Ivory, Bronze

I’ll be back for the regular blog posts that I, myself, have been missing to do. See you! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Are you graduating? I just graduated and it feels weird not to be coming back to school this fall.

      Yes, I’m graduating next month. I’m done with all my courses now and it really does feel weird not having to wake up early for a class. ๐Ÿ˜›

        I moved to a town where there are not very many young people around. It is mostly senior citizens… I always get excited when I see someone my age walking around, and then I discover they are 40 ๐Ÿ˜›
