Chicago Meetup

Recommended Posts

Hi! This is the placeholder thread for Chicago and anyone who feels like coming in to see us. :)

 

Current discussion is that we may try to do something the 11-15th of April, but I'm open to coffee and swap sooner if anyone wants to get together. 

 

If anyone wants to see what we've done before, the old thread is here:

Right now those dates work for me. From April-November I'm in a ton of leagues so doing it over a weekend as opposed to a weeknight is my preference but beyond that I have no specific dates.

That MIGHT work for me to venture down there, depending what day :) Just hard to do on the days I work since it's a long-ish drive, but if you decide on a Friday or Saturday I might be in. Maybe @usofjessamerica & I (or other WI girls!) can carpool :)

I will be able to go any day except the 14th because that's my birthday and I would rather spend the day with the friends that came with me doing some hardcore shopping and partying :D

Actually wait - I saw that there's a request for Fri/Sat from the Wisconsin crowd. So - the question is, would Friday the 11th work better than Sunday the 13th? I'm fine either way.

I'll definitely have to take a close look at my calendar since I think it's thesis defense week that week. But, being in Chicago with all you lovely ladies would be a MAGICAL way to celebrate!

Basically just getting together to chat, maybe trade extra's from our stash (but not required), have a drink or coffee or food:)  When we tried to organize a get together in the fall, we discussed hitting all the local makeup mecca stores - MAC Pro, Lush, Inglot, Kryolan, Sephora. :)

11th works from me, I would arrive late though. I have class till 1, it takes 2 hours to drive to the airport, 1 to fly to Chicago, and then an hour to get to the hotel and get everything in order.. So I can meet after 5 or 6? Depends on my flight and if I skip class or not.

That would be great for me. I would definitely be settled in by then

Saturdays or Sundays are best for me. It would take over an hour to drive in, and I work until 6:15 during the week.

Do you have a link?  Btw, I love the idea of sharing local activities and having more informal meetups.  I got to meet Joann (sorry trying to remember your MUT nick!) today at a tea/plus size event at Duran Cafe today, so nice to meet someone from the board!

    • I used Tinder some time ago, but I don't really like it these days. There are so many bad and fake profiles... I like using some other dating services. I am sure that you will find something interesting and really working for you, good luck with it
    • I'm having some backsliding, but still trying! I'm really seeing progress using my full size cleanser, toner and moisturizer. I decided to change my routine. I have been experiencing for a while now some strange kind of boredom. When I'm not working, I really don't have fun any more. I don't get chores done either. I'll just get up, and the time just passes, and my room will be messy with a pile of laundry, and I don't get it done, and it makes me feel bad. I can't focus on reading a book or watching a show or movie. I always feel my weekend is a waste. I'm not having fun when I'm lazy like this either; it feels awful.  I decided to change my routine and fight this state! I told HR I wanted to work on Saturday every week and have Thursday off every week, which makes both my work weeks and time off shorter periods. I'm hoping it will be easier to make the most of time off when it is one day instead of an entire weekend. And I might feel less tired when the work week is broken up. I also made a list of all I hope to do in my days off. I want to have my laundry done, cleaning done, write in journal, post on Makeup Talk [I do enjoy writing], watch a show or movie and read a book, and best of all use a face mask on the two days off!  I'm not using all my face masks at all. I got a flyer from Yves Rocher with some awesome new face masks and scrubs. I really want one, but not until I've used up all the masks I have now! The Thursday and Sunday off will be my special beauty days to use up products with extra relaxing beauty routines.  Last night I went out with a friend of mine and my brother to Family Dollar. While she was shopping, I looked in the beauty section. I enjoyed it. I saw some things I wanted, but did not get, because I don't need them. I saw: Aromatherapy diffuser set with a little cherub. Pretty makeup brushes. I already have a ton. No reason to wear makeup because I always go out with a face mask. I should make an effort to use eye makeup though. I need to care for myself better and put effort into myself.  Skin care set with cleanser, toner, and cream in one box, only five dollars. I think the cleanser had shea butter. I wanted to try it, but have tons of skin care going back to 2017 I need to get through!  After we took our friend to eat, we came out and had a nail in our tire and a flat. The roadside assistance man was really nice though. I got a Car Care credit card and an appointment to get it fixed today. I am backsliding with my debt snowball, but I'm not going to let it stop me. I'm just going to keep going and start over with whatever debt is smallest, being diligent with No Buy/Project Use It Up.  I have been more productive this morning, started laundry and cleaning and wrote in my journal. The more I try the better it will get! Then maybe I won't order takeout so much. I'm kind of looking forward to going to the auto shop, because it will be something to accomplish, and then I'll go to lunch with my brother (less expensive than getting Door Dash).  The first mask I will be using up is my smallest sample, Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment. I have many mini masks from Ipsy, etc. and I believe two full size masks and two full size scrubs, and a box of sheet masks.   
    • I guess you should exercise and eat healthy for it!
    • You absolutely tip the student!! Regardless if they have been in the business for 20 years or they are just starting out - they are putting their time and effort into giving you a gorgeous cut/colour that you will love
    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
