Any colorist out there?  I vaguely remember there are celephane (spelling?) techniques out there for a shear color coat, do you think that would show up on my hair?  And can I do it myself?  

 

At the time my hair was blonde (I dye my hair seasonally blonde in spring/summer, burgandy in fall/winter) but yes I did lighten the ends because it came with it and I usually don't so I said screw it and used it lol. I am going to trim my ends soon anyway. I do a hair tie across the bottom so I have a usually pretty crisp line of color across the back. I usually wear a ponytail so it looks really pretty up, all different heights and streaks.

I want all the popcorns!  Prob fancy nut or maple bacon or um, all kinds.

 

I love salty with sweet or spicy with my sweet for sure.

 

But alas, I do not appear a sweet 17, so clearly I get none of the popcorns.

I think that they all sound pretty good except for the maple bacon (I'm a vegetarian and I hate the taste of meat. Bacon is particularly offensive to my herbivore tastebuds) and the eggnog brandy (I am only 17 and not of age to drink, although I do like virgin eggnog). Out of curiosity, what is tuxedo popcorn?

Mmmmmmmm popcorn.  Tuxedo sounds awesome.  When I was in high school my favorite coffee drink was a tuxedo with a double shot of espresso.

I could be wrong, but I think it popcorn with chocolate and white chocolate.

So the other day when I said I needed a hug it was because one of my only friends has basically just started using me as a babysitting service. I watch her kids for hours on end without pay because I love them. That's all well and good except for the fact that I haven't seen hide nor hair of her since I moved back home. Whatever, she's bust but I know for a fact she only works three days a week. We had talked about doing thanksgiving together but last I had heard they were going to Reno for thanks. So guess who starts calling me at 1:30 today asking me if we're still on for thanksgiving. I just saw her and her husband on Tues when I watched their little girl while they went to the movies, nobody mentioned anything. I'm getting to the point where it's easier to have no friends then people who just fucking use you all the time.

Aw I am glad you feel better (and I know this was posted days ago) but I really feel for you.  It is hard when friends can't be counted on but want to count on you to do stuff for THEM all the time anyway.

My husband and I can't even do a Christmas tree anymore. Our kitties are too wild. My older kitty likes to sit in the tree and knock it over and break ornaments, and he's the well behaved one! Now I have three cats, so it's outta the question, no tree this year. Unless I wanna create more work for myself, it's not happening.

Hahaha my cats are the same.

One year we bought unbreakable one's and let the cats have a field day with the tree. That was THEIR present. All you could hear for a month was them batting ornaments on the floor. When you walked by one you put it back on the tree and it would start all over. They had a blast!

I really regret not waiting! I love what I'm giving my Santee and I hope she will too BUT I could've given her SO MUCH MORE if I waited just 2 weeks!

 

AGREED. I'm still over the limit but I wish I'd waited on one thing in particular since I basically could have gotten 2 for the price of 1 and now she only gets 1.  Oh well though.  Next year :)

Same here.  My wrapping skills are not great.

I think either would work- I like both!

Haha, no worries.  I'm wrapping (hopefully) tonight but won't be getting anything out till Saturday.  It's just that the overachievers are posting a lot  :icon_lol:

Especially since I moved out here to Utah from tx...I don't exactly fit in here, no friends :,(

Yesterday when I was at a certain store, I was getting help from the nice sales lady...she said, "oh, is this a work secret Santa or..?" I was like, "oh, um...it's online. Makeuptalk."
She tried to hide it, but I know she was, in her head, "omfg are you serious?" Lol. I made sure to buy some real-life people stuff too so I wouldn't look completely crazy and anti-social

 

Yeah, my bf didn't get it at first, but now that he has seen the insanely awesome package I got from @trekkersangel he has become a believer of sorts.  He actually said the words "Oh my god, they really are all like you".  I chose to take it as a good thing lol.

Side note: The last time I mailed something, the lady at the post office scolded me for making my fours 'wrong' and then took out a notepad to show me how to do it properly. Not cool! But I made a point of making them HER way on the address label this time and I'm totally going to point it out to her! 

 

OOh artsy labels.  

 

If it makes you feel better she actually wasn't just being a jerk.  They have scanners that sort the mail to where it is going, real people don't do that (most places) and the scanners have a hard time reading 4's written your way, or at least used to. THey should look at fixing those scanners.  Or employing more real people.  Whichever.

My hubby's family does big Christmas' too. He still has a hard time with the 3 gift thing. He gives my my 3 gifts to open & there's always 3 or 4 gifts in each box. And then my "need" gift turns into 3 "want" gifts & he says that he "wants" me to be happy & spoiled. Stinker. I love him so much!

 

Aw, I love how you do Christmas! I think that sounds really awesome actually :)

Spying on what I post about wanting for Christmas? Or was he seeing what this whole make up talk thing was all about? Ha ha ha. My head is spinning with paranoia about him on here. He already thinks I'm nuts for buying presents for a complete stranger (secret Santa), but make up talk brings out the crazy in me. Ha ha ha.

Hahaha well I certainly hope he was able to see how grateful i am for what you sent me! Hopefully he was just picking up some tips on a present for you!

Now we make it a family tradition to pick 2 names off the angel tree every year to help remind us of our blessings & to put into perspective how lucky we really are.

That is a very beautiful story.

Aw I hope she checks in very soon!!!

The bonus is that it's extremely unlikely my package will get swiped in the building.

 

This is a good thing to keep in mind!

I agree with everyone on this, and actually took something out of its box for one of my girls already, so I am glad most people seem to agree.

Aw, I'm sure no one could object to this!

Remember yesterday when I swore I'd ship mine out today? Yeahhh that didn't happen. It snowed for real last night for the first time this year and I just can't bring myself to leave the house haha. Tomorrow! I swear. For real this time.

Getting so antsy to mail- but I can't as I'm still waiting on goodies. And can I just vent a little? I was born and raised in tx and literally never dealt with snow- not real snow (one time it sorta...powdered and stuck for like, ten minutes!). I'm in Utah now- and there is easily a foot of snow that happened in like, 4 hours. My minivan of doom can't get up my driveway! I'm pretty sure I can't get my daughter from her bus stop (beginning of our "community"- so a little bit of a drive from the house) so I'm hoping my husband can drive all the way up here in the 4-wheel-drive and get her ...and then go back to work. Lame. Also- and I get it and don't blame them at all- but FedEx and ups can't come up here because of the stupid snow so they are leaving my stuff (and my santees stuff!) somewhere down the mountain. I certainly hope I find it/it's ok/I can dig my van out of the snow to actually go get it soon. Ugh. In summary, kcuf snow!

    • No, it does not affect my self-esteem either way.  Tbh I feel most confident when I'm not wearing makeup.  Perhaps makeup application can be seen by many women as a form of self-care but it's actually more hygienic not to wear it often (sounds weird but it's true), and imo women are coerced into its application by jobs, other women, and men.  Women are pressured to perform femininity or they will be met with violence, which doesn't stop at makeup application (which is a skill not an art form).
    • Week 2 of my new plan, with my new concept of time as two mini work weeks (Mon-Wed and Fri-Sat) and two mini weekends (Thursday and Sunday). I think this will help with not getting as tired during the work week or bored during the weekends. Being bored during the weekends leads to spending on shopping or eating! I like the new plan so far.  I finished my full sized Yves Rocher White Botanical Cleanser. That's the White Botanical Cleanser and Toner done, and a few days of Cream left. The goal for the rest of July is to use that cream up along with one pack of 20 face cleansing cloths.  I have a nine month supply of cleanser and cleansing cloths to finish.
