[Happy Thanksgiving!!]

Happy Thanksgiving! Have a great day with family and friends! Eat lots and be merry!

[Snob spies...NYX]

So, Black Friday is going to start is officially 13 minutes. I was perusing around looking for makeup sales. I hit up NYX (I have heard of their infamous bundle sales), and I hit up the sales page and their liquid foundation is $1! $1! An astounding $13 off! I have been in the market looking for a foundie (im a newbie). So I'm still trying to decide if I should purchase... I will let you guys know...

[A Fiery look...]

So, I found this look on my camera last nite and decided to post it... And I tried the faux hawk hairstyle... I really like it for going out... I actually did this look for work the day before Halloween... I got really positive feedback on it... I ended up doing this same hairstyle on my friend for Halloween (She was a vampire from True Blood) but she had a twisted version because I didn't want to tease her thin hair so much....I also did her makeup. I'm goin to put up pics of her too... Let me know what you think...

[Snob Haul/Review...]

So, this had been put off because I didn't think that my camera worked... But it takes basic pics (no zooming or anything). Anyway, I picked up some things over the past couple of weeks but never got around to blogging about it. Last week, I also picked up my HG makeup remover wipe, Epielle makeup wipes. These are a dollar for 30! I cut mine in half, so 60 for $1. What a great product. At dollar general, I picked up an E.L.F. foundation brush. I love the E.L.F. line of brushes, I have about 4. This is a staple for my makeup kit.

The next thing I purchased is the L.A. Color Mascara in Very Black. Its really good, gives length. And at only a $1?!?!? How could I not purchase it?

Maybelline Great Lip Color with M.A.C. C-Thru lipglass on top...
Maybelline Shine Seduction lipcolor in #620

Anyway, while going to purchase a festive bag at the dollar store for my friends baby shower, I spotted the Maybelline Shine Seduction glossy lipcolor. It looked like a nude color gloss with no shimmer, and I have been trying to find dupes for M.A.C. cremesheen glasses. I hurried up and opened the package on my way to the baby shower and I was so happy I bought two! Its #620. In my opinion, its like a mix of boy bait and partial to pink cremesheen glasses. Also, I purchased a Maybelline Great Wear lip color in Flesh #230. Its a great nudy pinky color. I needed another nude lipstick 'cause I have one but its super frosty... I don't like to wear it too often, so i needed another nude lipstick. It is a great find... Anyway, while I was at T.J. Maxx, I saw Nars Sets of the Monoi and south beach body oils and the lipgloss sets... They were reasonably priced. $19.99 for a lipgloss set. I am going to probably purchase the lipgloss sets next week...

[Snob spies...]

So, today I went to Walgreens to look around a buy my usual Arizona and bag of chips...And while I was walking I spotted face masks and upon closer look... It was from THE FACE SHOP!! I have seen quite a few bloggers talking about these face masks... I was pretty happy... I didn't end up getting one 'cuz I had to put gas in my car, etc. So tomorow morning, I will probably buy one and do a review... Laters....

[Snob Tunes...]

My two favorite artists have been on heavy rotation in my car lately: Lil' Wayne and Nicki Minaj. Lil' Wayne has always been a staple on my Zune but Nicki has broken through. I recently downloaded Nicki's "The Best of Nicki Minaj" and it's been the best mixtape ever! I am in love with her style and her rhyming skills. She was recently featured on the BET hip-Hop Awards in a cypher with Joe Budden, Nipsey Hustle and others. May I say, she was the ONLY female featured! What a groundbreaker... Anyway, I have been following her since Lil' Wayne mentioned her name in one of his mixtapes and seeing her on youtube getting interviewed in an apartment building staircase. She is currently signed to Young Money label and she is steady becoming (if not) the most talked about female rapper these days... 2010 is going to be a great year for her, I can feel it... =)... Now onto Lil' Wayne, he released the "No Ceilings" mixtape this past tuesday or wednesday; and it features remixes and freestyles to the hottest songs right now, including Beyonce's Sweet Dreams. It's a lyrical circus...and if you know Weezy's freestyle flow, its REDONKULOUS.... So check them out for yourself...

[So...I got flaked on...]

Today, I was woken up by phone call saying I wasn't getting paid. That right there, can just F&^% up my day (personally). I remember posting a couple weeks ago that I had a wedding to do this saturday. I knew things were going to fall through, from the get-go. The person that I was supposed to talk to for this make-up gig was my fellow co-workers' mother, who is getting married (today). I had dialogue with my co-worker abouta rate and price and everything was set. This past week, I was running low on cash (I was flat broke) and had spoken to my co-worker about getting an advance on my pay for the make-up job so I can purchase foundation (I have been looking for a foundation palette, but they are crazy priced). My co-worker had told me (earlier this week) and told me that it would be totally fine. [Little background: Me and my co-worker work at an afterschool program at a local elementary school, went to high school together...etc.] As of last week, I realized she has not been coming to work and didn't come to work on friday. I realized I did not know the time or location of the wedding(was planning to ask friday morning). Come to find out, her cell phone is disconnected and I can't call her. I decide to take it to facebook and tell her to contact me[mind you, this is 7 at night.] I didn't get a response of facebook till 1231 in the morning (saw on my cell phone). Got a call at 850 this morning and decided to let it ring (i don't answer unknown numbers)...Lo and behold, it is my co-worker explaining that she has been sick and that her mother had spent my payment on other things and wouldn't be able to pay me till monday... At this point, I am so annoyed. I have no gas, no money and I'm going to have to drive to Boca [I live in Broward County]and not get paid?!?!? You've got to be kidding... I didn't want to waste my time and told her I will not do the job.... I'm sorry but I'm not going to waste my time and not get paid till the next week. That will only show them that I don't really care bout getting paid and they will try to pull one over on me.... OH! And to top that all off, MY CAMERA is BUSTED!!! {End of Rant}
