>Now I Know My ABC’s… You’re Tagged!!

•May 19, 2011 • 9 Comments


ABC’s are so much fun. And to break up the monotony of the same awards that have been going around lately, and having to come up with random facts about myself (which is soooo hard to do!!!), this one asks me questions, and all I have to do is answer! HA HA HA!

I need to thank both my friends for tagging me- eRiN over at The Cheap Chick and Melissa from Melissa’s Random Musings blogs!! It was so fun reading facts about you, now it’s my turn!

This is a terribly fun way to get to know each other in the blogging world, so read on for some fun facts! Then you’ll see my picks to receive this fun “Get To Know You” survey!
A. Age: Believe it or not, I’m 30! I’m generally mistaken for being much, much younger. I get carded at the liquor store. At the convenience store. Sometimes, even going into Rated R movies. Score!!
B. Bed size: Full. Memory Foam. I ❤ my bed. I’m little, don’t need much room!
C. Chore you hate: Washing dishes. I hate them. Especially when food gets crusted on and is nearly impossible to scrape off.
D. Day: What?! About them? Most times, I don’t want to get out of bed.
E. Essential start to your day: Stretching, so I can get out of bed. Then breakfast!
F. Favorite color: Red.
G. Gold or Silver: I like both, but prefer silver to wear! Or silver toned metals.
H. Height: 5’2” barefoot … I used to wear crazy heels that were 3″ or more… But not so much now with my back being hurt. Actually not at all. I’m either in sneakers, socks, slippers, or barefoot.
I. Instruments: I played flute in middle/high school. I know how to play a little harp (from my youngest sister). I figured out keys on a piano, but haven’t played in a long time.
J. Job title: A Snarky Princess. Due to my back injury, I can’t work at this time.
K. Kids: Eventually!
L. Live: New Hampshire.
M. Mum’s name: Jacqueline.
N. Nicknames: Panda Bear, Peanut and “Boopie”. The last was my Grandfather’s favorite for me.
O. Overnight hospital stays: Most recent one? August of 2009 for having the Piggy Flu. Before that, I can’t remember. I was in the hospital a lot in my high school years because of my asthma.
P. Pet peeve: I have way too many. People who talk with food in their mouth, or chew with their mouth open for me to see half masticated food in there. Gross. People who do not have good grammar, or “text talk” in a normal conversation. Hawkers, solicitors, telemarketers calling at dinnertime. People that don’t use their blinkers, or who make a turn, and pull over to the opposite direction to make said turn leaving you jamming your brakes because you would have had room to get by had they not pulled all the way over into your part of the lane/street.
Q. Quote from a movie: “Never waste a hard-on, never trust a fart.” Jack Nicholson
R. Right or left handed: Right to write and eat. Ambidextrous with most else.
S. Siblings: Three. I’m the oldest, and I have a brother and two sisters. Age difference between me and them is 2, 6 and 10 years.
T. Time you wake up: It varies day by day and how much sleep I tend to get each night. And how much rest I’m able to get.
U. Underwear: Love fun ones! Pretty, feminine and flirty underthings are a must!
V. Vegetables you dislike: Green peppers on pizza.
W. What makes you run late: My alarm clock not going off. Traffic.
X. X-Rays you’ve had: It may be a tie between my back and my teeth. Also chest (asthma problems).
Y. Yummy food you make: Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Indian, Thai… You name it, I’ll cook it! Oh, and I’m famous for my sushi making skills amongst my social group!
Z. Zoo: I love zoos! I made it halfway through the big one in Washington DC, and not only did we get rained out, but it was awesome. I need to go back for the other half. My favorite part was the Panda Exhibition! Because it’s my nickname, and I ❤ Pandas!
Now it’s time to tag some of my fellow blogger friends. Since I waited days to do this, many of my more popular friends were tagged by other mutual friends. That’s what I get for waiting! But it’s ok- it just gives me a chance to share with you some new reads you might not have had yet!

>Nixxing Nyx – The Sale That Never Was…

•May 17, 2011 • 15 Comments


NyxGate. Nyx Fail. NixedNyx.  NYX120Fail. NyxFailSale. NixNyx.
There's a whole mess of 'em out there. A lot of annoyed former customers of the popular cosmetics company, who are now pissed off and angry because of Nyx's failure to appease or fix the problem. Ok, there's many blog posts written now, lots of Tweets, many upset Facebookers. I'll tell you my ridiculous story of the time I spent trying to get in on this "deal". I'm not really complaining- my protest of this entire debacle comes in the form of me never again purchasing their cosmetics. Not even second hand.
Oh- but I did meet one girl online who says she was able to check out. I don't know her personally, but hey- if it's true and she was able to get in on the deal- great! Good for her! And I told her as much! Continuing on… This story is the majority of a comment I left on a blog yesterday. Because I'm exhausted, the rain is killing my back, and I just don't feel like typing all of it up again- I'm cutting, pasting, and taking some creative editing and wording into my story.
I knew I wasn't going to get to the site as soon as the sale started, so I figured what the heck. I'd wait for a while, and then try. That way- the mad mobbing of the site should die down and processing an order should be easier. How would you feel if I told you I was online at 9pm EST trying to get to the site. Constant refreshing. No pages.
Refresh. Refresh. Refresh.
Timed out.

>Getting NYX-ed Isn’t Good … So Much For the Anniversary Sale

•May 16, 2011 • 6 Comments


Well, most of you probably know by now. The NYX Cosmetics "Anniversary Sale" has been a major bomb. Yeah, I'm one of those rabid fans who have been waiting patiently trying to place things in my cart…
I finally threw in the towel this morning (I won't name times, because I shouldn't have stayed up that late!) and figured I could probably wait to get it done this afternoon. Well, that was a load of fail too. I can't checkout. I've seen very few comments from people who have been able to successfully navigate, add to their carts, and check out from the site at this awesome $1.20 sale.
I only have a few things. I just want to check out. Frustrated, I just posted this on their Facebook wall:
1. Prepare your servers for the influx of millions of rabid fans who want your makeup and are willing to wait 24+ hours to get said items.
2. Set up a limited amount of people who can shop on the website at a time, this will control the submittable of simultaneous orders on the website.
3. Set up a queuing system for the customers, refresh every minute so they can see where they are in the (long) line of customers. An actual "You are customer number 1045"… Then "You are customer number 875". Etc.
4. If the site remains broken, shut it down completely. Send out a message to us that you've closed the site until ALL issues have been resolved. OFFER A RAIN DATE OF THE SAME EXACT SALE, and extend the time if need be.
5. Answer emails, phone calls, and any social networking services you have CONSTANTLY. If you do not have enough staff, I'll be more than happy to be hired for my services if I can work from home.

>Awarded… Again! Versatile & Stylish Blogger Hit Me Again!

•May 13, 2011 • 2 Comments



This is kind of overwhelming, and I hope I don't repeat myself with any of my fun-facts! You girls are awesome at giving away awards, and this a third time Versatile has visited, and second time Stylish has stopped by… I must thank the awesome Kattatonic Fierceology for these two newest awards. If you haven't, swing by and follow her blog- she's got some fantastic reads there! Yes, she's a bit young… But hey, she's color inspired and that's what the important thing is! You're never too "old", or "young" to get into the makeup biz. 

For the moment, I can't for the life of me remember who the fourth nomination came from… So if you remember tagging me, and I'm not mentioning you in this post… Comment below! I'll then think of 7 more things to write! Right now, I need to come up with 14. Incredible! Do you know how hard it is to write about oneself when trying to pick random thoughts and moments?! It's hard! Difficult even! Ask me anything about makeup, and I'll either have an answer, or if I don't- I can at least point you in the right direction.

>The Seven Deadly Sins – Sloth and Diligence Collaboration with Makeup Zombie

•May 13, 2011 • 6 Comments


Well, well, well… Blogger certainly hasn't been cooperating lately, now has it?! The plan for posting our Sins and Virtues looks on Thursday totally went down the tubes yesterday when everyone realized Blogger was down and out. Read only mode. GAHHHH!
Needless to say, Makeup Zombie and I have been eager and totally excited to share our looks this week with you. We were foaming at the mouth this week, though not literally. And what happens?! We can't post! Oh noes!! However- now that we're up and live again… Let's get to the good stuff.
I'm Virtuous (HA HA HA!) this week, taking on:
Is steadfast application, assiduousness and industry — the virtue of hard work rather than the sin of careless sloth.

>EOTD and Hair of the Week…. Whoopsie!!

•May 10, 2011 • 16 Comments


So yeah, I know I've been saying all day I'll show you what I did to my hair. So here it is. I made you wait!! I don't really feel bad for making you wait either… Because I'm going to bed, and I'll see comments sometime tomorrow! HAHAHA!
While not entirely happy with the end result, I'm waiting about a week and then more bleaching is in store… So yes, I will be a blonde, but not completely. I'll also have to deal with this in-between weirdness for 7 days. Maybe sooner, depending on how I feel my hair can take the bleach. This go, I whacked it with 2 coats and it's just a little dry- I'm very happy it didn't burn or break my hair! It's rugged! My goal is to keep the under 1/3 of my hair black, the majority of it platinum/blonde highlights, and hopefully my trademark crazy red color. We'll see how this project goes- I may need to enlist the help of a friend, or my sister when she gets home. This is going to be interesting to say the least…

>The Seven Deadly Sins – Greed and Charity Collaboration with Makeup Zombie

•May 5, 2011 • 15 Comments


Ahhh, the smell of fresh, crisp bills. There's never enough for me to hold in my hands. The enormous vault of gold I keep. It's in a very well secured place, otherwise known as Fort Knox. Yes, all those gold bars are mine. Heh, I wish. If one is good, two is better. Ten is outstanding. I want more, more more! My sin of the week is:

Greed. It is an excessive desire to possess wealth or goods with the intention to keep it for one's self. Greed – like lust and gluttony – is a sin of excess. Greed is inappropriate expectation. However, greed is applied to a very excessive or rapacious desire and pursuit of wealth, status, and power.
As a secular psychological concept, greed is an inordinate desire to acquire or possess more than one needs or deserves, especially with respect to material wealth.
