Ok...

So this post is going to be all over the place...
But you can expect a blurb about:
-my hair
-makeup
-cost of textbooks
-and maybe something else?


  • So, let's start with my hair....

I decided it was a good idea to take my twists out...
Um...Wow!
I have way more new growth than I thought...it's about an inch and a half of curl...

So yeah...Due to my inability to really take care of my hair in this state...or wanting to...
The twists are going to make a comeback, this weekend....

The main reason is that I don't want to fight with my hair...It took me two hours to straighten my hair yesterday...no curls... just straightening...Also since I'm stretching (probably for another 2 or 3 months)...I'm going to have a hard time maintaining the two textures....

So yeah...Here's a picture... that shows it all...

  • Ok...so now to the makeup...


A couple of things I've done in last couple of weeks...

This is really simple...I wore it when I went out with a couple of friends...I made the eyeliner with some mixing medium and NYX's Moracco eyeshadow single...

I love my mixing medium!

This is an overly dramatic look with really thick eyeliner...I added some white liner for the waterline...I don't usually do this...so I pretty much suck at it..I think I'm going to try to get into using my white eyeliner more often...
and I did this one tonight...
Just trying out some different eyeshadow combinations...

  • And now lets talk about college textbooks...


I freaking hate the bookstore for charging me two arms one leg and and an ovary for these crappy books....

Arg!
I bought 5 books today...it came to 323 dollars!
What? I still have 2 more to buy...
Jesus TAKE the Wheel!

And get this...The book that cost the most was USED!...
USED, I tell you...

I'm so glad this is my last semester of college...

KC,

Girl...I would but I really don't have the time to live in the library...

Alyssia,

Let me tell you how I tried to sell two books back to the bookstore...they came to about 100 dollars when I bought them...

The cashier rung them up and said "We'll give you 10 dollars for both"...

I looked at them books and thought I might as well keep them and learn something new...

Adina,

That's the truth...plus university bookstores like to rip you off...


Saved Girl,

You Lucky...
I'm on my way out tho, so not much longer will I have to deal with this foolishness...

I remember that! Those damn books were RIDICULOUS! My sister gave me a gift for my highschool graduation which I thought was BOGUS @ the time. She said I'll pay for all your books for all 4 years....

Ummm I learned that this was a PHENOMENAL gift! LMAOOO

Your makeup looks good.. very creative..

And do you twist your own hair?

Amanda Allison said...

I feel you on the cost of textbooks! Not the business.

You're from the makeup groups right?? Because you look very familiar!

Yves said...

lol that's not too bad actually, when I was doing my undergraduate classes, most of my textbooks were close to or over $100.
