Charmed I'm sure

I had forgotten I had this silk charm scarf. It was hidden under a lot of clothes that I have been meaning to put away. I love how fun this scarf is! Strawberries, diamonds, lipsticks, what more do I need?

Now my mind keeps me up all night

I've been having insomnia :( I can't sleep til 3 or 4am in the morning and I get up at 8am for work. Haha, my body can live off little to no sleep. Which I think will take a toll on me eventually.Work has been ridiculously boring this past week, I spend my entire shifts doodling and making cute stick figure dolls. Go figures! I did get a much needed manicure earlier this week. Its OPI Shimmer & Shimmer. The lady who worked on my nails did not speak an ounce of word to me besides, "switch", "dry", and "all done". Seriously?

I need a vacation ASAP.

Up close and Personal: Who am I?

10 Random Facts about me

1. I'm a city girl. You throw me in the suburbs or in the wild I wouldn't have a clue what I would do
2. I've traveled to most of the west coast states, I've never been to the east coast yet. There's always time.
3. I have the worst memory known to man kind. Yet I remember really small details. Ironic really.
4. I like watching oldies on TV land such as I love Lucy, I dream of Jeannie, and Bewitched
5. I've never had a pet growing up. Sometimes I think I'm missing out :(
6. I can't use chopsticks. I get bizarre looks when I ask for a fork when I'm sitting with a group of people who can use chopsticks.
7. I "learned" how to swim in over a course of 3 days during a spa retreat in Callistoga. I'm 21 and I still cannot swim if my life depended on it. Oh, and forgot about floaties, I used one and almost sank!
8. I'm pretty optimistic on life. Even though the closest to me are pesstimistic.
9. I go through color phases. I'll be obsessed with a certain color and I need to have it, want it, or wear it.
10. If I couldn't have my dream job I would settle for a job giving back to the community. Such as helping the homeless or senior citizens. No one should be neglected. Everyone is someone. Money shouldn't matter in the job you get (although I would pay for my expensive taste! LOL!) it should be something you truly want to to that makes you happy!

Lip Junkie

It's been one crazy week! With juggling last minute projects to working nonstop back to back. I can finally relax. There weather was amazing too bad each day it was spent in a classroom or indoors at work. Sigh. Lately I've been obsessing over lip gloss. Fact: I carry at least 9 different lip products with me at all times (lip balm, lip gloss, lipstick, etc). Why? Sometimes I can't decided what color to wear, or if I'm feeling a certain color then I have to wear it. So I have a handful in my purse at all times. My current favorites

 Chanel (left: satin lip lacquer #76 Ming $32, right: glossimer in #141 no longer available)
I started getting into lipstick about a year ago (talk about late bloomer!) And of course I wanted to ease myself into. And the lip lacquer is a mixture of lip gloss+ lipstick even though the color on the brush is highly pigmented it gives a nice wash of color to my lips without being over the top. The picture does this color no justice. It's a very pretty color! And the lip gloss is more brown to me, but it comes off sheer with loads of sparkle!

YSL (left: Rouge Volupte #1 Nude beige $34, right: Golden gloss #010 Golden peony $30)
The nude beige is an absolutely gorgeous color! However a little does go a long way. This lipstick is on the creamier side. Just one or two swipes is enough, if you keep going you might end up with barbie doll lips. The lip gloss gives a bit of color with massive shine and sparkle. And the lip gloss contains 24kt gold! Haha how random is that? I love pairing these two together if I'm feeling a little "blah" and this is an instant pick me up! It just lights up my whole face. I mean how can it not?

Some people carry a bag full of change, I carry a bag full of lip gloss and lipsticks!
