Happy Memorial Day Everyone!

This week has been quite crazy (lol i think i have started my posts every single time writing the same thing).. This weekend My Husband and I Just basically got a new bed (Cal King YAY!) this was a major upgrade as we were still using our Full bed from high school (yikes!)

I believe I was testing out my Wet N' Wild Palette in Lust. 

I think this was last week before I went to work (as usual).. don't mind the spot on my face, it was light shining through the blinds)..

on this particular day, My Mom and I went to Home depot to pick out Paint colors for Hubby & My new home (Tuesday 5/25/10).. and Hubby and I did.. we went with a light yellowish color.. it's "Corn Silk" from Glidden.. real pretty color!

So don't mind me for the lack of posts.. i've been SO busy with the house! that and the fact we kind of have a rat problem that the old occupants of the house left behind *GRR* .. they didn't tell us how bad it was.. and well we're finding out ourselves how bad (and gross not to mention) it is.. Anyway.. i'm going to post a review on the Wet N Wild palettes shortly.. :) and also my MAC to the beach collection Haul ;)

toodles!

Busy Weekend.. as usual

This weekend has been quite crazy! I believe Friday I didn't go to work, wasn't feeling well had a horrible migraine and had SO many things to do.. i don't even really remember what happened haha.. but i do know i did just a few errands..

Saturday I was prepping everything to get ready for the big day (Sunday) when we would officially be getting our house keys for our home. Hubby and I are so excited! :)

since we finished things up quite late (of course had to get my gym fix in the early AM).. we didn't get to make it to a Friend's daughter b-day party.. so we decided to take the girls to Disneyland (the joys of having an annual pass - AWESOME!) so it was nice knowing we could come and go as we please..

It was kind of windy.. but we all had a great time.. we stayed there for a few hours.. we had fun :) 

Sunday was just lots of cleaning.. I decided to go to Glendale mall to Back2Mac my eyeshadows/quads.. unfortunately they only accepted 18 (their limit per day per person).. and I had 36.. so i got 3 eyeshadows.. Patina, Paradisco and Sumptuous Olive.. I then went to another closer mall, just to check out some lipsticks.. and ended up getting Brave, Vegas Volt (wanted something bright!) and Velvet teddy.. since i had the remaining 18 empties left.. i wanted to get eyeshadows.. but didn't wanna go back to Glendale since it was crazy busy there.. and i think i'm pretty happy with my eyeshadow collection lol.. (which i'll have to update again)..



Since I was there and was wanting it for quite some time.. decided to go ahead and get MAC Boy Bait Cremesheen Lipglass.. 




that was pretty much my weekend.. Although the best part was when Hubby and I officially got all of our keys and did the final walk-through of our home! :) yay! so yes, if you didn't know i'm officially a homeowner!

alright goodnight!

How I depot my MAC Eyeshadow Quad (Pre-Made)

So in my previous post and on facebook.. I had mentioned that I finished Depotting my MAC Pre-Made Eyeshadow Quads (i prefer them in the 15 pan palettes).. and a few people had asked me how I did it..

For this real short, quick tutorial.. I used the MAC Take Wing Quad...

You'll Need Some rubbing alcohol, The Quad you want to depot, a Pairing knife (i'm using a box cutter)
a magnet and perhaps a label (if you want)


1. Open the Quad and take your pairing knife
(or in my case - the box cutter thingie lol) 
and stick it carefully where the line is (see picture) and wiggle it loose


2. Pop off the plastic top and you are left with the above picture.


3. Take the same tool you used to pop the top off to gently peel the shadow from the metal sheet.
(like the picture above)


4. Please note that some eyeshadows are more harder than others to remove, so
remove carefully as to not bend/break the eyeshadow pan.

Once eyeshadow is removed, you will use the rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball/pad and rub the glue off the bottom of the eyeshadow pan.


5. Take your magnet (or in my case measure the length you need)


6. Write the name of the eyeshadow on your label and stick it on the magnet



7. Then place it in your 15 pan palette (or CD case etc)



8. Then place the plastic top back on and it
should be ready to go (for Back 2 Mac!)


Hope this was helpful :)

Random Blogging..

So wow! the week has zipped by (thankfully!) because on May 23rd, we will start working on our new house! I'm so very excited! I think i should take some pictures of it some day huh? lol..

Anywho.. Sunday Hubby and I decided to be spontaneous and take the girls to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach.. the girls had a blast - we stayed there for a few hours since the weather wasn't all that great..

It was a bit chilly, but overall the girls had fun. The flowers in their hair that they are wearing, Hubby bought them.. he let the girls pick out the ones they wanted.. thought it was kinda sweet :) 

Monday came and went.. Hubby had another Game with AFGM (A Few Good Men - the name of their team).. and of course - they lost again LoL.. Here are some pix

(My Hubby is #10 - HOTTIE! ;) )



Tuesday Came.. it was my half-day.. I had intended to go to Glendale Galleria to do my Back2Mac thingies.. but decided to finish depotting my Pre-Made Quads.. so It took me two hours to depot all my quads lol.. I'm going to update my post of my make-up collection since I no longer have any eyeshadow Pots and ALL my mac palettes are filled <3

Wednesday was a rough day at the office... Man was it SUPER busy.. got out late.. but luckily Hubby decided to take me and our girls out for dinner at Olive Garden.. was real delicious!

And Today - Had lunch with the Doctor I work with at Carrillo's near our work.. Had Carne Asada Burrito - had to take it home because that burrito was HUGE! I went home around 2PM.. because I had a serious migraine and thankfully let me go home.. 

Anywho.. i've got some errands to do here and there for our house.. (ughh gotta fax some papers over to DWP).. blah!

And Hello to my newest subbies! glad to have ya!

I've been kinda busy! catch-up post (long)

Sorry I've been MIA everyone! this is going to be a rather lengthy post as i'm going to be blogging from Mother's day (from my continuation from Saturday's Get up & Go Post)

So Sunday morning (Mother's day - Yay My 3rd one I believe!) Hubby & I decided to go to the new gym and work out Legs, Biceps and I did some extra cardio.. It was nice - NO one was there at 5:30AM.. real nice to get my workout outta the way so early - I was definitely pumped!

As I was looking around at the treadmills I noticed that they have TV's attached to them! You could plug your headphones into it and listen.. real cool and fancy.. lol



After the awesome gym session - we went home, showered.. had a nice breakfast (he cooked a yummy breakfast for me and the girls).. we then got ready and decided to go to IKEA to just look around at the furniture for possible ideas for our home :) yay! we were there jotting down prices etc.. and taking pictures of some of the items we liked



And on to the dining table (i liked the set up etc :) )



We did spend quite a bit of time there :) was real nice walking around and testing out the beds, furniture etc etc :) It was already time for lunch.. so of course I wanted to eat the meatballs from IKEA that we always get when we're here. 


This was our lunch :) (not just mine lol!)

Afterwards, hubby said we were going to go somewhere.. so i didn't think anything of it.. he took me to Glendale Mall! I was able to get my MAC Mineralize Creme foundation in NC25  & MAC MSFN in Medium


I was sooo Happy to get my stuff lol :) I was definitely so suprised that he took me to the mall! but yay I got my stuff.. I've been using it since I got it.. but the Mineralize Foundation did break my out with a huge cystic painful pimple so i stopped using it for a few days.. i'm debating about keeping it.. or returning it for some eyeshadows instead lol..

After the mall, we went to Living Spaces to check out their selection of furniture.. very pricey i must say! but out of everything, we liked the following:





afterwards we went home and let the girls take a nap.. and kinda just relaxed the rest of the day since we both had work the next day.. I honestly had the most perfect Mother's day ever! loved it!

Monday was just another day at the office.. our work was celebrating nurses week so every day of the week was something new.. i forgot what we did for Monday as it was real crazy busy and we were short 3 nurses to boot.. I did start my eyeshadow depotting project while hubby and his friends played some bball outside the house trying to get ready for Wednesday's bball game.


Tuesday, I requested the morning off (because I normally work half-days on tuesdays).. because it was the first day of registration at Tianna's Preschool.. so I wanted her to be the first one to be registered.. as they are only choosing i think the first 15-20 children for the class..  She came with me and was so excited at the thought of going to school.. that after we registered her and did the paperwork, she told me, "Mommy, now we have to go to the target and buy me a backpack".. lol ;)
Can't believe my baby is growing up so fast :(

After that, went to my appt to finally get my eyebrows waxed.. decided since it was in the area to head over to michael's to buy some magnets for my eyeshadow depotting project i was going to do..after that.. just sorta went home and cleaned like crazy.. was very nice :)

Wednesday after work, Hubby & I went to his basketball game.. he is in a basketball league with our friends.. so we all went to support them (my brother's on his team too)..

(her face was swollen from allergies)


and here are some shots from the game :)
My hubby is wearing number 10 


Oh why of course I have my own Jersey!


The team they lost to, was SUPER taller than them.. and played with only 4 people on their team.. but we lost lol! crazy i know.. but the guys all had fun.. i did too! so that's all that matters next game is Monday! woo hoo!


Thursday was kind of a blur.. it was crazy busy.. we had some nursing students who i had a lot of fun showing around and teaching them stuff.. afterwards just went home and knocked out.. nothing too special to report on that day...

Friday.. same thing.. the week had been dragging because it's just been so busy crazy and exhausting and stressful at work.. i decided donate blood since we were having a blood drive at our work..



good thing i donated blood towards the end of the day, because I was seriously dead-tired! after work.. i really just knocked the heck out lol.. I was supposed to go to the movies with hubs but i was SO drained, lightheaded and dizzy.. i needed to rest lol..

Saturday after Tianna's Ballet class, we went home, had some lunch.. kinda just relaxed since i'm still kind of tired and exhausted from donating blood.. on a whim, i decided to do something different to my hair.. i still wanted to keep it long, but something different... well.. :) 

Before (sorry i look a hot mess AHAHA - it's real hot at home)



My hair has grown SO much, my layers are just crazy.. and so i just wanted a change.. 

lol me trying to be sexy.. guess it ain't really workin haha


But I really wanted something different.. well I've been really wanting bangs.. and decided to shoot for it! i think i like how it came out.. just have to get used to it.. don't know how i'll really style it yet as i've never really had bangs this short before...

well.. i guess i'll end this blog - since i'm gonna get up to go to the gym at 5AM! gonna do legs with hubs! <3

MAC Collection :: Superglass - Are you getting?

So I know it's just came out (not yet if you are international).. is anyone getting anything from this particular MAC Collection? I've been hearing reviews on different forums, websites about how glittery/gritty this is.. 





Top to Bottom:
Cherry Electric, Disco Blend, Fab Frenzy, Gift Wrap, Sugar Overload,
Superflash!, Sweet Tart, Totally Bang!, Tunnel of Love
Said to retail about: $18.00 each

I don't know if i want to spend that much per lipglass if the reviews i've been reading are just.. "meh".. lol the colors look amazing in the tube, but of course we know that looks can be deceiving. i think i'm going to actually skip this collection and wait for the next one! :) 

if you have any of these - what are your thoughts? love it? hate it? 
and if you are looking to get something from this collection - which ones?
