Finally a good week!

Hey guys!

So I have to say the last week has been really great! Greg has had 4 interviews and 4 job offers over the last 2 weeks, we're finally getting a fridge, and the apartment is almost moved in! My mother's friend is giving us a TON of furniture and I'm already planning out where all of it is going and what is getting refinished! I started working on a painting for one of the walls and I'll upload some of those pictures soon.
Also VERY excited I won a contest for a pop romance lipstick from Lime Crime! I never win anything so it's pretty exciting! As soon as it comes in I'll post some pictures. I decided on Mint to Be, a pretty mint green shade. I was considering Coquette which was a pale pink/nude color, but I have It Girl from VS which is close.

St. Patty's is tomorrow and I always do something as far a makeup look. I'll probably try the nail marbling tonight and I'll take pictures of that and the makeup and post them.

I've also been doing more research for the makeup line and even though I'm further behind then I'd like, I still have a lot researched. I can't wait to get started.

That's all for now, hopefully I'll post again soon.

What are you all doing for St. Patrick's Day?

Almost moved in?

Hey guys!
I have to start this out by saying I'm proud of myself for blogging twice in the same week! Hooray for better habits! Little shoutouts here at the beginning, today is Pi day for those of you who don't already know and also the birthday of a dear friend! It also would have been Einstein's birthday today, apt seeing as my friend is a genius too!
On to news. So after much wifely (is that a word?) ... persuading, I think we might actually get the apartment moved in! It's been 2 1/2 months, but I'll take it! A good friend of my mother's is also moving and is being EXTREMELY generous and giving us a ton of her old furniture. We're going to sand and stain some of it, but a few pieces are antique and I think they're going to look great in the apartment. It really is a lifesaver as anyone who's been through their first apartment can attest to. Another lifesaver is the fact that my boyfriend's father is buying the fridge! Thank the Gods! I seriously don't know how much shopping for one dinner I could do. It's very hard to be economical when you can only buy what you're making for dinner and you have to get rid of any leftovers. We haven't been able to buy any perishables or stock up on anything that's on sale since we haven't had a fridge to put things in, so this is going to be an amazing improvement.

We're both getting rid of a lot of old stuff, throwing away the unusable, donating what is and considering a Spring yard sale. If we have the yard sale we'll be able to use the money to get some new things for the apartment (which these days is looking kind of barren).

As we get the furniture and refurbish and decorate I'll try to take and post pictures.

Until next time, comment below with some of your stories about moving and getting your first place. What was it like and what are some helpful tips?

My intentions are good...

...but my procrastination is better! Just popping by to do a quick post. Greg and I went to see Blue Man Group and it was AWESOME! Pictures will be up on facebook and hopefully I can get a few on here too! I've been thinking more and more about my creative outlets lately and the makeup line is definitely up there. I've been having quite a bit of fun trying new nail looks lately and I'm thinking I might do a nail tutorial :) exciting, but nerve-wracking! I've never done a tutorial of any kind before, but I want to try it out!
Hopefully you'll hear from me soon since Spring Break is next week!

Until next time!
