Saturday Night Thoughts

There is no rhyme or reason to this post tonight. Just some random thoughts and happenings going on I wanted to jot down. Sometimes these are my favorite posts to read so I hope you enjoy! 

  • This is the first Gamecock football season in 5 years where I'm not going to every home game. Not only am I not going I've actually been at work when the games have been going on. So needless to say the fact that I'll actually get to watch the Kentucky game next week AND I'm going to the Georgia game the week after makes me a happy fan!

  • Today was an overwhelming day at my new job. We offer what are called 'express services' which can be anything from a foundation match to an eyeshadow look. I was only zoned in 'color' for an hour but during that hour I had 3 people ask for a concealer match and another wanted basically an eyeshadow 101 lesson. So I have to tell the customers that I will be more than happy to find someone to help them out, but I hate not being able to help them myself! My managers (who I love and are very supportive) and I discussed this and they wholeheartedly agreed that next time I work I'm gonna be paired up with a buddy to watch some services so I can get more comfortable. My main manager also told me tonight that she was proud of how I was coming along, which is SUCH a huge thing to hear when you only had a so-so day!
  • I have the day off tomorrow and I am SO. EXCITED. Since starting my second job I've told them everyday I had off from CVS I would work. So naturally that equals no days off for this girl! AND I have Wednesday off too! I'm not gonna know what to do with myself! 
look at all that space!! 
  • Fall TV comes back this week!!! As busy as I am I have no idea how I'm going to keep up with my shows, but two of my all time faves are coming back, Castle and SVU!! If I only watch 2 shows this fall these will be it. I may be a tad obsessed.

Happy Saturday everyone!! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!!

Pinterest Wednesday

Happy Wednesday all! This week has been a tough one with some work drama and gearing up for my first test in grad school! But I wanted to post SOMETHING on this poorly neglected blog! So I'm linking up again for Pinterest Wednesday at The Vintage Apple. What cool new things have you found on Pinterest?? 

I bought a chambray shirt from Gap a couple weeks ago and it is already one of my wardrobe staples! Definitely using this pin for some outfit inspiration

especially when working in a pharmacy

I DIE for this dress!!!

I love this look! The video that goes along with it makes it look so easy. 

an outfit inspiration I actually have the parts for!

possible makeup look to try at work??

Manic Monday Questionnaire

Source: via Natalie on Pinterest

where i would kill to be right now!!

It has been such a Monday it's not even funny! Like most people Mondays are our busiest days at work, and to top it all off an allergic reaction I thought I was over decided to rear its ugly head when I woke up this morning. Luckily I was able to see the nurse practitioner while I was at work and got some prednisone to take care of all this crap!! Take my advice, DO NOT TAKE minocycline!!!!

Top this all off with being behind (already) on schoolwork and having to have some tough decisions/conversations about work over the next couple days, I am SOOO ready for the weekend already!! I told myself I was gonna keep up with this blog, and I know this is kind of a cop out post, but hey it's better than nothing right?!?! I got these questions from one of my favorite beauty YouTuber's blog, Amarixe

1. Mood
with everything going on, I'm feeling a little uneasy and tad anxious

2. What are you looking forward to most today?
watching Gallery Girls!! I thought this was gonna be a Bravo fail but it is definitely my new obsession!! 

3. Someone is bringing you breakfast in bed, what is on the perfect tray?
buttery shrimp and grits, cheese eggs, and lots of orange juice!

4. Current Nail Polish
none!! Though I've gotten so many new colors from various sales and my nail polish swap partner that I need to start using them!

5. Where do you keep your handbag when you are home?
usually it's near me on the couch but I take it in my room when I go to bed

6. Current outfit
norts and gamecock tee

7. If you could try on any celeb's hairstyle for a day, whose would you choose?
probably Lauren Conrad. it would give me a chance to try a different hair color without going crazy blonde. 

8. Do you sleep with your bedroom door open or closed?
closed. even though I live alone it still freaks me out to have the door open

9. What is the last beauty product you finished?
Benefit's They're Real! Mascara. This is my holy grail mascara! I'm trying to use up other ones I have in my collection but nothing compares

10. Weekly goals
get caught up on schoolwork! start working out again

Hope you're Monday was better than mine!! Here's to living for the weekend!!

What I've Been Up To

Hola chickas!! It appears I accidentally took a small hiatus from the blogging world but a couple new developments in life have been taking up almost ALL my time! If you follow me in twitter I've been alluding for the last couple weeks about interviewing for a couple jobs, and after 4 interviews and 2 offered positions, I am proud to say I now work at..... *drumroll please*

To say that I am SOOOO excited would be a slight understatement! They were only able to give me a part time position for now, so I'll still be working at CVS primarily, but this is the PERFECT job for me since I want to get my foot into the cosmetic world! So far I've had 3 days of training and today was the first day I was on the register and even though it's all very overwhelming I'm excited to learn more! 

In addition to starting a new job I've also started my online classes towards my Master's degree. Once again after a lot of thought about what I wanted to do with my life (not such a small decision people!), I decided to work towards earning a Masters in Cosmetic Chemistry! It's completely online which allows me to work full-time and is relevant to the area I want to work in while also being somewhat related to my Bachelor's degree. 

So as you can see a lot of change has been happening!! I'm gonna be honest time management is not my greatest skill so it's going to be an adjustment going from one job to two jobs and school work. But I am excited at what the future holds and being an employee of a company that encourages growth...and lets be honest, getting to play and sample all those beauty and skincare products is a blast!! Not to mention the GRATIS that comes along with the job!

This are just some of the products that I've gotten to try and already love!! I thought going into this job I knew a good bit about makeup, but I have QUICKLY come to realize that there is so much more to learn and so many brands I barely know anything about! 

So that's where I have been recently!! Tomorrow is my first day off in the past week...which I will be spending a majority of the time catching up on lectures :/ But I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday weekend!!!
