Essence Gel Liner in Berlin Rocks

This stuff really does rock! It’s extremely smooth and creamy, seems to be pretty waterproof and just glides right on. I think I bought it for a $1.50 and that was 50% off, so they are usually around $3.00! What a steal for a great gel liner! 

Dries to a beautiful matte finish with a fuchsia sheen to it. Really seems to last all day for me! 

I love this stuff!  I use the brown (London Baby) everyday and it really stays.  Definitely need a waterproof makeup remover for this one though. :)

I need all of these earrings

I am currently taking a break from work to write this post about work.  It’s not to complain about work so much as to remind myself to try to not burn out.  Easier said than done.

I worked 55 hours last week, and 37 hours already this week.  When I look at the numbers, they don’t seem that bad.  But when I think about everything I did in those hours, and all of the things I have to squeeze into the remaining 65 hours of my week (this assumes I get 6 hours of sleep on work nights and 9 hours on weekends, if I’m lucky), I realize there really are just not enough hours in a day.

That gives me an average of 9 hrs/day for personal things.  Like eating, appeasing friends with their requests, working out, cuddling with my kitty, calling the bank because they did something stupid (again!), paying bills, watching movies, writing on and perusing tumblr, etc. etc. etc…

p.s. my back hurts.

Alright.. now that I’ve quantified that like a true accountant… back to work!

I got this cute little fuzz ball on new years eve.  He’s the perfect mixture of sweet, ornery, loving, and mischievous.  Such an amazing personality in such a tiny package. <3  It was love at first sight.

I received this trinket as a gift recently from someone very dear to me.  It’s been given a home on a peg next to my bed.  It reminds me every day how special I am to have such wonderful people in my life and how important it is for me to be patient.  <3
