You must live somewhat near me. I'm on the KY/WV border. All this talk of storm cells and tornadoes is making me nervous! Eastern Kentucky just isn't prepared for this kind of weather. A tornado came through here a few years ago, just a few miles from my house. Wind always bothered me, but since then. it makes me a wreck. I really hope we don't lose power. I live 15 miles from the nearest town, so we're low priority; it could be a week before we get power back, especially if there's substantial storm damage all around the area.

 

I need to start wrapping my gift, which is on my list of things to do for today. Hopefully I can get everything packed up and ready to mail on Monday or Tuesday. 

Hi neighbor! I'm in Huntington.  You are right about this area not being prepared for this sort of weather. . I grew up in central Arkansas so tornadoes and severe thunderstorms became pretty common for us.  Things changed for me in 2008 when my grandparents house was hit by an EF4 tornado.  They survived, but it changed how I look at storms.

Oh my gosh. How scary! Glad to hear that your grandparents were okay. I'm in Louisa, so fairly close by!

We're dealing with some weather issues here too, big fire about 30 miles from me blew in a ton of smoke late last night. I had to close all the windows and turn on the AC. Fires are so prevalent around where I live that I just feel so lucky that we've never had one really close to us. The one that's going right now had many people evacuate to my high school, which is so surreal. I hope winter brings some rain or we're going to be in big trouble next year.

You will do great. I have to go and buy some more Josie Maran hand cream. Thanks for introducing me to it. I love it but sadly I am out, lol.

Thanks. I love her nail polish remover wipes too. They don't work well on textures or glitters but great on creams. It's the nail polish remover that leaves your nails and fingers soft.

Last time we lost power for a "substantial" amount of time (11 hours) our biggest concern was will it be back tomorrow or do I have to work in the morning. We were about to take off to Vegas for a 4 weekend when they said it would be a couple of days but did not want to risk it and the power was on by the morning. I don't think we had enough gas in the car to make it to the nearest gas station with power since basically all of Southern California was without power.

 

We were lucky that we just had to eat the ice cream and conserve my laptop battery to charge the phones. We even had hot meals since we had a gas stove. It was actually a nice night out and I remember we had wine by candle light in the back yard.

 

Bad weather for us is the 84% humidity we currently have. I wish it would just rain!

 

We also recently had fires here from the lack of rain.

Like a month (or two!) ago I started to clean/organize my vanity. I took everything off/out of drawers and put into boxes. Since then, I've been pulling makeup out of the boxes whenever I put my makeup on. I have totally procrastinated on putting everything back. I'm using the prospect of having a couple new items within the next few weeks as a kick in the butt to get everything put away in a nice orderly fashion. I want my special new items to have good home when they arrive LOL

I used to be the orderly type (my cd's were always in alphabetical order, same w/ cd's etc) and lately my bookshelf is a cluttered mess and my vanity had become a clutter catch-all. No more! Most of my make up is organized and stored now! Woo-hoo!

Also, a couple weeks ago I got a spice rack to hold some of my polishes and I LOVE it! With that and the wire 3 tiered thing I had, I had just enough room for all of my polishes...then I happened to go into Ulta when they had some China Glaze's for .97 and Revlon for .47 and now there isn't enough room for all of them LOL So, I totally need to buy another of the spice racks...but still it's overall organized and it just feels sooo much nicer going over to a set space just for my nails stuff and being able to easily find what I'm looking for! Hoorah for organization!

 

Any tips for organizing makeup/beauty products?

Dear Swap Buddy:

 

Please use a roadie to let me know when you ship! I'll be moving on the 8th and will have mail forwarding in case you ship toward the end of the period :)

Dear Swap Buddy...My weekend got way from me, and I have not gotten your package wrapped.  I am not sure if I can get to it before Wed and I don't want it out over the weekend.  So I may not be shipping till next week.  I hope you don't mind.  I promise it's worth the wait   :)

To my swap buddy: One of the finishing touch items isn't being sent out until tomorrow, but as soon as that gets here, I can send it. It's pretty small so shipping shouldn't take long. It will probably be here this week  :)

 

To my person: I just realized I will be out of town all next week Aug 2-9 or so (last minute plans!), but don't worry delivery won't be a problem. Someone will be here to get it inside safe. But if it gets here then, I may not be able to do a reveal until after I get back. I will definitely be able to let you know if it arrived safe though, my mom will let me know.

Well, crappity.  The order I thought was going to get here tomorrow isn't even registering in USPS yet.  Fingers crossed that there's movement tomorrow.  *So* ready to know I have everything in-hand!

Will be shipping today! It was actually cheaper to send my box via Priority Mail (in a non-flat rate box) than via parcel post, so it should get to my swap buddy sooner than I thought! Eek! I hope she likes what I picked for her!

My box was supposed to be delivered today. And it says it was delivered....to a house in the town next to me...

It's supposed to be a few states away, USPS!

Am I just reading something wrong?

Haha Okay. I am laughing so hard at myself!

I used the wrong tracking number!  :rotfl:

I've been having an awful day and just grabbed the receipt and was barely even paying attention and used the tracking number for one of my mother's packages. :blush2: *buries head in sand so that nobody can see my very red cheeks*

But anyway, yay! Package showing up today. I hope my buddy loves it!

I'm at work now so I can briefly use the internet -- just wanted to say, whoever has me, please let me know the tracking or at least when the package is supposed to be delivered, because sometimes the post office leaves things at my apartment office without telling me, or, on one occasion, back to the post office without leaving a notice....

I went to put my package in the mail - and they wouldn't let me send it priority mail since it contains perfume...WOMP WOMP. I am currently home now trying to repack it into a different box...and I spent so much time yesterday decorating the box. Post Office FAIL!!

 

The good news is that it should still go out today! I'm exciiiited!

    • Hey guys! I want to make a great gift for my girlfriend, has anyone used this nail polish set from Aliexpress? What do you think? it is a good choice for a gift? Nail Polish Set. Thanks!
    • I made another payment on my credit card, and the remaining balance is now $140.  Yves Rocher Beauty Advent Calendar so far:  Day 1 - Sel D'Azur perfume - I've been wanting to try something from Yves Rocher's extensive line of new perfumes. This one is meant to evoke a walk on the Amalfi coast, with citrus and sea salt.  Day 2 - First Snowflakes Shower Gel - One of the new limited edition holiday products. This is lovely! It's white almond, but less sweet and more powdery than the Perlier White Almond, which I also love. I might have to get the big bottle!  Day 3 - Cream shampoo with avocado - also a new product I haven't tried yet. Very good shampoo that brings out natural waves.  Day 4 - Four sided nail file - A good file that really is effective.  Day 5 - Micellar water for sensitive skin.  Day 6 - Clear base coat for nails.  Day 7 - Face cream for sensitive skin.  I had a really hard time going back to work after Thanksgiving. But after Monday, it's been quite slow, thank goodness. They are allowing people to volunteer to leave early. I never do, even though I feel tired and burned out, because I'm so focused on my financial goals. I have been watching a vlogmas on You Tube from the channel iseedee. This is a Swedish girl who is frugal yet glamorous, and has inspired me in my No Buys. Her vlogmas (or Christmas Countdown 2019 as she calls it), is simple yet so beautiful and cozy. She is so organized, and really knows how to celebrate the holidays. She makes a simple Saturday of doing laundry and going grocery shopping seem special. I guess she personifies what you would call Hygge. iseedee is going through The Body Shop Beauty Advent Calendar. She has the big one with the full sized items. This is the only vlogmas I've been keeping up with.  I've been Christmas shopping (for other people, not for myself, lol), and also I'm going to be organizing the buffet at my church later this month. So I don't think I can pay any more on my credit card until Boxing Day. That's the day I am hoping to pay it off!!! After that I might buy myself a little treat or two, and then organize my plan for the New Year.
