Where I’ve Been

Hi all! I am coming out of hiding to post a quick update on where I’ve been. And the answer is work. Seriously! As readers of this blog know I work at the library and the library partnered up with the recreation department in the county to preform story times at the county park. So every weekend in the month of December I was at the park performing a live action How the Grinch Stole Christmas. it was miserable outside. Super cold and every weekend it was rainy and windy. The whole week would be crystal clear skies and Friday would roll around and the weather was horrible. Needless to say my skin and health has taken a beating. I’ve been breaking out and generally having dull skin. I broke out my trusty Clarisonic and that has helped.

I don’t want to be a complain post but I also wanted to show you my makeup for the storytime. Since we were performing the Grinch we all dressed as Whos. I did simple makeup with crazy hair and used false lashes. It was the first time using false lashes and they went on surprisingly well. Kinda. They were not in the same place on my eyes but I think I was the only one that noticed. The lashes that I used were the Ardell 106. I got them at Ulta. I threw them away before I could take a picture. It seems that you can only wear them twice before you have to throw them out. If you can get more uses out your false lashes let me know your tips.

Here is a picture of me with my co-stars. The lady who played Grinch did an amazing job on her Grinch makeup and everyone wanted to take pictures with her.

The other thing that kept me busy was of course the holiday season. I had a great Christmas and spent time with family that I don’t see very often. One of the highlights was meeting my two year old cousin for the first time!

I did some holiday baking for my co-workers. These are Oreo balls. They look super scary but tasted really good. Sadly these were make with help. The tray on the left went to the coworkers and the right tray stayed at home.

One of the best gifts I got was from my four year old cousin. His mom took him to the $1 store and had him pick out gifts for the family. My brother got a bald head comb, which is a head band with combs on the side. We had a big laugh at that since my brother has a ton of hair and a full beard. I got a bobble head penguin. His gifts were everyone’s favorites.

So that’s what I have been doing. I hope to get back into blogging and making YouTube videos in January when I won’t be working every weekend! If you still want me to do reviews of the past subscription boxes let me know. I did cancel Ipsy. I was tried of the mediocre bags of stuff I wasn’t using, but I still have Birchbox, Julep, and Popsugar.

I hope you had a great holiday season!
