music, books, and reviews

Hey everyone!

Between work and home/family things, I really haven't been up for doing any blogging. No I won't get into it, but put it this way ... it's been difference and maybe concerning.

Although work has been good. Keeping busy and the past few days I've gotten better at balancing at end of my shift. Which is great! I've been wearing a lot of the same makeup daily. Retrospeck on lids and Caviar Dreams on crease. Then a white for highlight. Of course black liquid liner on top and some sort of lip colour, but really I haven't been up for doing much. Don't know why.

I've also been dealing with allergies and possibly a sinus infection. I use a lot of tiger balm and eye drops. I use to do Neti-Pot [which is absolutely brilliant and amazing!] Apparently things are failing me. Reactin and Benadryl [both allergy and sinus!] don't work anymore either. I AM RUNNiNG OUT OF OPTiONS!!! Blarg.

So I've actually got a few [unpaid] reviews coming up soon. One is going to be on makeup wipes. So far only tried 3 but I want to get more to review, then everyone has a better idea. Out of the ones I've tried, I'm only impressed with one of them. Not saying which yet, but 2 are name brands and one is dollar store brand. You'll see when I do it! :D I'm not sure which it'll be on, blog or video. I'll figure it out.

2 other things that I'll probably mention in the same video are:
"Siberia" by Lights cd
Run Down
Lights is a Canadian artist. This is her 2nd cd and she does a lot of electro-pop. There's everything from love songs to dance songs. Most have a message behind them. I just got the cd today so I haven't heard all the songs yet, but I know "Toes" is really addictive. She's super cute also.

Below is the video for "Toes"

This gives you an idea of her music.

Now for the other review I'll be doing.

Gossip Girl - Psycho Killer

Re-imagination of the original book by Cecily von Ziegesar only over the top gore. But it's so over the top, it's funny. Best way to describe it so far is like Dexter but funny.

This is the book store's synopsis for it [yes i'm copy+pasting]:
Welcome to New York City''s Upper East Side, where my friendsand I live, go to school, play, and sleep-sometimes with eachother. It's a luxe life, but someone's got to live it . . . until they die.

So begins Gossip Girl, Psycho Killer, a re-imaginedand expanded slasher edition of the first groundbreakingGossipGirlnovel, featuring all new grisly scenes and over-the-top gore by #1New York Times bestselling author Cecily von Ziegesar.

Just as in the original story, Serena returns from boarding school hoping to make amends with her BFF Blair Waldorf--things just haven't been the same since Nate Archibald came between them. But here's where our dark tale takes a turn: Serena decides that the only way for her to make things right with Blair is to eliminate Nate. If that means killing him, well, c'est la vie. Her attempted murder doesn't go unnoticed by Blair, however, who isn't about to let Serena kill whoever she wants-not when there'sCyrus Rose and Chuck Bass and Titi Coates and everyone else who's ever irritated Blair to get rid of first . . . .

American Psycho's Patrick Bateman has met his match in Manhattan's newest, most fabulous trendsetting serial killers, Blair Waldorf and Serena van der Woodsen.

Weird and messed up, right? Well once I finish I'll be able to explain better.

I plan on doing a video soon. Tag vids for now since I'm not really makeup-video inspired. I may try to do one for Hallowe'en but I need my costume first. There's a few ideas I'll probably do.

Okay well until next time!

Enjoy this beautiful fall weather while you can!
