Summer Favorites, pretty much

I'm going to skip over my summer reminiscences because let's be real here folks there isn't many or any interesting enough to get into. It's been an OK time. Work has pretty much scrambled my brains with mushrooms and onions and served them to my mortal enemy while I sit watching, handcuffed to my cubicle. It's been rough to say the least. I had a goal that I would repeat back this saying to myself, "This place does not deserve to get the best of me." I tried but most days I think I failed. I still believe in it but my faith has wavered.

To be concise and avoid boring you any longer here is a list of my favorite things I've picked up since Winter. They're not all from this summer but the months have blurred together like a 3 year old playing with Playdoh.

The lighting in our living room.
I was worried that it would lack some place to be able to take product photos and random selfies (YOU KNOW YOU DO IT TOO.)

Finding the PERFECT red nail polish.
This is the best shit I've found. It's not cheap but it's handmade and hasn't chipped in two days. My fingers get some action and a lot of mouth-time so nail polish never lasts for me, but this stuff still looks great - going on day 3.

I've bought a lot of makeup and recently discovered that Ulta has Nyx cosmetics (i'm slow) so they've got a lot of my money lately. I bought BLACK lip liner and can't wait to try it.

Starting over with a new avocado seed and so far we've got root action in less than a week. I think it helps to have your seeds cracked. My other guy has sadly passed on. Well, I have let him go but he still stands in a pot at my parents house like a stuffed pet some recluse couldn't let go of. (I'm totally stuffing Fred when the time comes - OH GOD! I CAN'T STAND THINKING ABOUT THAT)

This hoodie.
In love. It's so soft.

I've been trying to take care of my face.
I'm going to be [cough, cough] 35 soon. Too motherfucking soon.

Lipstick. I love it even though I only wear it on Saturdays. Not pictured is this really awesome nude color from Nyx - I'm so pissed I left it out.

I've also been trying to take care of my hooves. They're disgusting and so badly cracked that when I walk on carpet it's like pulling two pieces of velcro apart.

 These earrings.
I keep them on heavy rotation and even wear some of them at the same time. Like magic.

I've been wearing mostly dark polishes. I'm not into the cutesy summer colors. I buy them, think they're pretty on other people, and then never wear it again.

Decorating. I recently painted this mid-centry piece white with a salmon/orange background. I got it for $10 and it was ugly brown and really dirty.

And last but not least the best flip-flops ever.
I've worn them almost every day. I'm over Old Navy's basic ones. They kill my feet and these do not.

{if have any questions on where I got anything just comment below and I'll email you back. or you can just email me}

Super Black is *amazing* polish! Expensive but worth it.

My avocado died. I waited too long to transport it because no one sells soil over the winter, and it ran out of root room and, kerplunk, dead. I need to start a new one, too. And, I'm also stuffing Turbo when he dies. Seriously. I'm too attached to the bastard.

Where did you get that hoodie?! And those earrings! So cute, especially the skulls.

I love when you post about stuff you love because it gets me excited to try new things!! So don't stop. Please!

I have never heard of that nail polish but I'm adding it to my list.

The work pain, I get it. You know what helps me? Making a list of all the things I enjoy doing on the weekends that require money, which in turn requires being employed. It makes it KINDA easier to get through the week. I hope it gets better for you!!
