I think I passed the age where I'd get excited over birthdays. The gifts are always nice, but I think I'm mentally too old for all night partying (not that I was EVER into that anyway).
My birthday this year was quiet. Nathan and I just spent some quality time together. We went grocery shopping for Thanksgiving at Costco on Saturday because I wanted to sample all the foods. It was a BAD IDEA. There were sooooooooooooooooo many people, good GOD! I got annoyed and went next door to Ross where I found some awesome clothes and unexpected makeup.
Since I forgot to take pics of the clothes, I'll just show you the makeup.
My wonderful friend Sue Lynn sent me some Japanese makeup goodies:
Jill Stuart blush quad in Milky Strawberry
Esprique Precious e/s palette in D-2
They are GORGEOUS! I've been wearing that blush on a daily basis recently. A FOTD will be up soon, I promise!! I've been VERY uninspired lately. I think all the new goodies will change that.
I recently placed an online order at Cherry Culture because I've been dying to try out some of the new NYX blushes.
The new colors: Amber (Great Fall blush) & Bourgeois Pig <---LOOOOOOOOOOVE
Swatches: Amber, Bourgeois Pig, Cafe, and Tickled
Finally, I got some Meow Cosmetics mineral foundations/highlighters. I've been loving using foundation powders to set the tinted moisturizer. I will do a more detailed review on these, but it's suffice to say that I've finally found my perfect color match.
The powders are HUUUUUUUUUGE. You get 30 grams of product! :)
To be honest, I'm kinda over celebrating stuff now. Nathan and I just celebrated our 7-year anniversary (Is the 7-year Itch coming up? LOL) and my birthday. Thanksgiving is up next, then followed by my mom's birthday, then Xmas.....*drops dead*
Anyways, I need to get ready for work. :) Ah...3 more days!
P.S. Another reason why I haven't updated is because I've been addicted to reading. Currently in rotation are the Dexter series and The Hunger Game Trilogy (I got that for my B-day from Nathan's parents. They know me so well! Can't wait for the movie!!!).
