No GIFs, just a giveaway...and other confessions

...This month has been super crazy so far!  Is anyone else as surprised as I am that July is almost over?  Seriously, where the hell has this year gone?

...I haven't been able to do much blog reading lately because of how crazy it's been at work.  Hoping to catch up on everyone's blogs this week.  No promises though because I've got a shitload of blogs in my feed so it might take me more than a week to catch up.

...Fuck work.

...Remember my #icant + #iknowican post from Friday?  I didn't do a damn thing on that list except get a new phone.  Didn't work out.  Didn't make anything.  Didn't even get to enjoy my weekend because I had to come in to work on Sunday (again, see previous confession).

...Because I've been so behind lately (confession #3), I wasn't able to get the monthly giveaway up last week.  So, since August is just next week, the July giveaway starts today.  You're welcome.

...I don't have time right now to go into detail about what exactly is in the box.  Maybe tomorrow or tonight I'll edit the post to let you know what's in the box.  Maybe.


So I just realized that I didn't even provide you with a photo of what was in the box, here's a photo with a brief description of the items:

Cute floral nail file, nail polish, perfume sample, eye makeup remover, face cleanser, false lashes, sleep mask, and one mystery item.

...I know it's a really vague description, but that's all I can manage right now because (1) I'm tired and (2) I left the box at work so I can't give you the brands and details right now.  Sorry.

...I'll probably end up adding some extras to it this weekend to make up for my half-ass-ness this week.


  1. yeah, FUCK WORK. it's bullshit. i took friday off for that very reason and when i told everyone - not asked but TOLD - i looked at each of them dead in the eye and said: IS THERE A PROBLEM WITH THAT. they all shook their heads and said "absolutely not. enjoy your day off" because they know that if they even protested one bit, i would have punched them right in the goddamn face.

    thanks for linking up!

  2. Worst: Trying that little tail of the eyeliner smoky eye thing-it just looked scary on me!
    Best: Waterproof mascara-I LOVE IT!

  3. Girl! I totally understand what you are sayin! It is tough sometimes to try to keep up and the blog is the first thing on the backburner. No need to feel bad. Let me know if I can do anything to help.. Not really sure I can help you work, but ya know.. :)

  4. The best beauty trend I have tried was the ombre. As you can tell I still love it.. I just hope that I don't forget to change it before the world decides it isn't fashionable anymore.. Kind of like mom's with 80s hairstyles. The worst thing I ever tried was Highlighting and contouring. Not for me. I look like a clown.... Two comments, cuz you are the best!

  5. hahahaha Fuck Work. Absolutely. Aaaand I say thats what the 'mark all as read' button is for.

  6. July flew by!! And I agree ... Fuck work!

  7. Fuck work seems to be the general consensus as of lately for everyone! Work totally gets in the way of fun....and blogging! Doesn't work know it is summer and we are all supposed to be laid back and chilled?

  8. Best Bare Minerales for me

    Worst - Revlon color stay

  9. Ugh work!!!!

    Best: Party nail :)
    Worst: Winged eye liner

  10. Fuck work indeed. When are you taking a real vacation?? On the plus side, fuck work!!!!
    I have such a hard time doing any make up...I tried to do smokey eyes one time...I looked like I had been punched in the face. Then I tried to pull off a red lip...well lets just say, it was not for me at all lol.

  11. I recently was peer pressured (thanks Instagram) into purchasing some Colourpop Eyeshadows. Um no. They are a wet cream shadow that promises to be crease-free. No. Creases to hell and back. I will keep playing with them, but right now- not thrilled.

  12. Yeah, I hear ya. Lots of blogs I follow and I want to read all the posts (because I find people interesting.) It takes time to catch up, but that caught up feeling is so freaking satisfying. Ugh. Work.

  13. Fuck work?! You tell em like it is girl! No you're not the only one, I can't believe July is almost over either! I mean, really?! It flew by!!

  14. First let me just say that i have disappeared for so long so i am just now seeing the new layout!!! Amazeballs

    Best: Red Lips....they just dont work for me!
    Worst: pointy nails. Not a fan.

  15. Seriously, where did July go???? It's crazy! And yes. Work. That's all that needs to be said. Great giveaway box! I hope to win some cute nail polish and then make time to actually paint them!!! I'm not up to date on beauty trends but one I'm definitely NOT doing is nail art. Obvi, I don't even have time for straight-up color.

  16. I've been extremely tired lately, so that leaves me little room to read 50 to 100 blogs a day. Life gets harder as you grow older.

    The best beauty trend I've tried is probably winged eyeliner. The worst beauty trend is probably nail art. I'm just not good at doing my nails.

  17. upkeeping blog feed is so hard and takes forever...ive been slacking and lost alot of readers...but honestly thats not somethng i worry about because the ones that counts is who i blog for now a days.

    xoxo, K.Lee

  18. I know what you mean, things have been so hectic and I'm also behind my blog reading but I'm slowly making progress (verrrrry slowly)

  19. I can relate. Work was crazy for me this week as well. I am finally catching up on reading blogs. It happens.

    I have been wanting to try color club nail polish. I have heard a lot of good things about it.

  20. This blog is so nice to me. I will continue to come here again and again. Visit my link as well. Good luck
