I Don't Remember Signing Up for This

It is one of those things they never telling you growing up. Okay, so maybe it is one of those things they tell you repeatedly growing up but being an adult is hard. You have responsibilities, a job to keep, a house to pay for, bills to pay, etc. etc. etc.

When I was in college, I could not wait to graduate and start making money, real money. I have never been a fan of school, like ever. I used to try and pretend I was sick all the time to get out of it (just ask my mom). Don't get me wrong, I loved college. I just didn't like the actual school part of it. I was also working 25-35 hours a week at my part time job at Victoria's Secret so I felt like I was working full time but making nothing. I was sick of having homework every night and being broke from barely making minimum wage.

So when the day finally came and I walked across the stage as they called my name, my REAL name (thanks again, mom and dad...) I immediately felt this sense of great accomplishment. I mean I know a lot of people graduate college these days but it is still a huge thing I sometimes thought I might not get to. The first couple of months were awesome. I just had to work part time at VS and I got to watch my nephew, Lucas, 2-3 days a week. Babysitting him was something I wouldn't change for anything, although it did make me realize just how much work a child can be. But thats a whole other story in itself.

Eventually I started feeling kind of lost, where is my life going? What kind of job am I going to get? How am I going to pay my student loans? Am I going to live with my mom forever? Is there even the slightest chance Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake will ever get back together? Real questons.

Today I have a full time job in Marketing, definitely making more money than I was before but waking up at the same time every morning and going to the same place day in and day out can get monotonous. I love routine, until it gets boring.

This is def my problem

I am 24 years old now, I still have no idea what I am doing with my life in the future. Except I am about to move out completely on my own for the first time so I am sure many blog worthy stories will follow. I am about to do an adult like thing and I still feel like I am 16.

When I younger I always thought what my older sisters were doing was forever away and when the time came for me to go through whatever it was I would feel ready because I would be older. Well boy was I wrong! Wisdom does not just come from age, and I am not saying that to sound preachy, it is just a fact. I sometimes call my mom or sisters 10+ times a day to ask them questions or advice. I am the baby of the family, what did you expect?

I just want to know, when did it become not okay to sleep until noon each day and stay in your pajamas for 48 hours? When did watching an entire season on Netflix become strange and lazy and not just funny (or simply amazing?) If wanting to lay on the couch and watch Vampire Diaries with my best friend all day long is wrong, then I don't think I want to be right.

Again I will say: I do not remember signing up for this!

grown up but not really,

Finally Some Makeup! Small Ulta Haul

Hey Guys!

I am finally back with a real post for ya! Today I wanted to do a haul. I recently went to Ulta to indulge in their 20% off sale (like I needed an excuse…) I walked away with some pretty great stuff:

1. Tarte Holilday "Away Oui Go" Giftset. You guys this thing is amazeballs. It has 16 eye shadows that are to die for, 4 Amazonian Clay blushes, 3 deluxe maracuja lipglosses, 1 deluxe Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara, and a cute portable compact. You can pop out one of the 4 palettes, put in in the compact, and go! Perfect for the Holidays.
2. Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Airbrush Foundation in Medium Beige and the Airbuki powder foundation brush. Okay, I am still on the fence about this one, I have been using Bare Minerals powder foundation (also in Medium Beige) for quite some time now and lately I just find it leaving my face dull and blah. So I wanted to switch it up and I have heard some good things about the Tarte foundation. I like to wear a powder foundation during the week because it takes me less than 5 minutes to do my makeup in the morning before work and I am all about getting as much beauty sleep as possible (and pressing the snooze button as many times as I dare). I tried the Tarte foundation and at first found it very blotchy and hard to blend. I think the color may be a little too yellow for my skin as well. After another day or 2 of applying, I liked it a little better but I am still unsure if I would ever buy this product again. I'll keep you posted. :)
 3. Maybelline 24hr Color Tattoo Metal Eyeshadow in Barely Branded. I really like the consistency of these eyeshadows. I have a couple of the colors now and they are just easy to work with and you don't need a  brush to apply, I usually just use my fingers!

4. Maybelline Lipsticks from the new Matte line in Touch of Spice and Devine Wine. Send out the Hallelujah chorus!! these lippies are heavenly. I am obsessed with them. They are both great colors for Fall. Touch of Spice is my Holy Grail lipstick, it never leaves my side. The formula is really creamy (especially for a matte) and they are very pigmented. I have been really into the matte craze lately so these are perfect for me. I want more colors!! (top swatch: Divine Wine. Middle: Touch of Spice. Bottom: Barely Branded). Then there is me participating in Sunday Bun day and of course rocking the Touch of Spice.

So that was my Ulta Haul you guys, I hoped you liked it and it wasn't too long winded. :) Happy Sunday!
