colds and canker sores

Hey everyone!

So I'm not sure about everyone else, but I have been fighting a cold for a few days. It's drained me so bad that I literally take a 1-2 hour nap when I can. It's mostly sinus with a dry cough, so I have liquid meds I'm taking [no name brand stuff but works great!]

There's not much you can do for a sinus cold or dry cough except meds, Vick's Vapo Rub [hate the smell but works great] and water/tea. It's great because I have cut down/off on junk food but this is great since I've actually lost some weight. I am going to start working out soon, so that'll help also.

Another downside lately is that I have a canker sore. Horrible nd gross. "Mouth Ulcers" ideally. My body hates acid and since my granny grows grape tomatoes in her garden, I have been downing them like candy.

Reaction = canker.

It's made my lip puffy and there's only so much salt and water rinse one girl can take. So I googled and got some great results. I've been swishing Benadryl liquid allergy meds in my mouth [over the canker - don't swallow!] and so far the results are good. I think it says not to do it more than 6x a day but clearly, the more you do it, the better.

I found my pink fedora!!!
I love this hat. I got it last Christmas but kept losing it.

This lovely boy-with-mop is my boyfriend.
We were at lunch before his tattoo the other week. He's a goof but a good guy.

Oh Angel.
My furbear decided to be cuddly with me yesterday. He's such a suck sometimes.

In other news, I have an interview tomorrow. I'm trying not to get my hopes up because lately my hopes have been let down so often with jobs. It's hard to keep up. But I am trying to be positive.

This week is all about positivism - sort of.

Wednesday [tomorrow] - interview
Thursday - no idea. prob cleaning
Friday - G.I Specialist appt
Saturday - Party with friends
Sunday - dinner with parents nd Matt
Monday - Calypso
Tuesday - Matt goes back to school
Wednesday - my 24th bday!!!

Exciting. I know!

Anyways there's some things I need to do before my mum gets home.

Avril Lavigne

I'm sitting here, finishing my iced coffee and watching "Teen Mom" [say whatever, I like it.] I've been calling places I've had interviews and places that may be hiring for the past hour.

I am about ready to call it quits!

This is really frustrating. Going to interviews, thinking you're doing great then never getting a call back. I really want to go back to school - another makeup course - once some of my OSAP is paid down. [I have OSAP from a previous college course.] I'm not even sure if I can put it on OSAP ... but it is almost 3,000$ because I want to take 2 courses. There's a regular course that has lots of info, but then there's the advanced course. Both are awesome and I'm waiting to hear back to find out.

My interview Monday was with - hopefully - a makeup counter. I'm somewhat pushing for Clinique but I suppose I'd go with anything at this rate. I just know Clinique better [actually, I know MAC nd Sephora best but at Clinqiue is #3]

- 2 hours later -

This is usually what happens. I start a blog then disappear for some reason. This time I had to go clean stuff or else I couldn't think. So in addition to what I mentioned earlier about the makeup course. The major course - which is a hefty price - is probably something I'll take first. Neither do OSAP but the bigger course will give me an idea if I want to dish out the money for the 2nd course. Plus I'll get the kit, which is why it's so pricey. My plan is for September 2012 because it's such a huge price. Besides, I know for a few months it'll be complicated money-wise when I move because Matt has 4 months of school left [then graduated! Yay!] so I'll just save what I can, pay down what OSAP I can also and just keep reminding myself that he's got a job and school.

We already talked about this and we know we've got sacrifices to make while he's in school. Such as we're not getting cable. We may splurge for netflicks but not right away. We need internet for his school and so we don't lose our minds, so we'll be able to watch shows through that if we need to.

Vanilla e/s MAC
Silver Ring e/s MAC
Georgia e/s Cargo

Zero black cream liner Urban Decay
Black pencil liner [whatever works]
Frost e/s MAC
Tenderling blush MAC
Alpha Girl beauty powder MAC [Heatherette line]
L'Oreal Volumnous mascara
Aerie Pink gloss [whatever you have works]

Little New, Little Old, Little Nothing?

Hey everyone!

I've had so many interviews lately [2 different salons and one bankruptcy/debt company] and I'm pretty hopeful something will come up. It has to really, I'm just tired of being home all the time and not being able to afford anything.

Once I get a job, then we can start getting set up for moving and hopefully cut a deal nd get a mid-month move in. I don't know but it's hopeful.

We literally have almost everything. Couches, tv, bed, table, etc. Between both sides of the family. His mum is giving us a wok .... which honestly I'm stoked to make stir-fries. I'm not big on cooking now but I'm willing to try :D

Speaking of family, we're actually going to his dad's place this weekend. He lives a bit out of the city and between his hours and Matt's hours, things weren't making sense to go. Now keep in mind that I am a city girl through-and-through, but a lot of my family is from the country. So this weekend will be interesting.

I'm planning on doing a video early next week for a smokey look that doesn't include black shadow. It'll have probably a little black if I do eye liner but the idea is more of a day to night idea. Like if you're going out after work and wanna wear a neat shadow. Well you'll get it when you see it.

I'll keep everyone posted!
