End of May

Oh boy ladies (and gents?) I am now 25-years-old, ew. I turned 25 on May 18 and had a real fun time out to dinner with my bf and my Aunt and her bf. Then my bf took me out to dinner again... and I went out for a fun night with several of my friends.

All in all it was a great birthday. I know I posted that I would have pictures of my friend's photoshoot as I did her makeup but she hasn't given them to me yet, lol. Booo. I did a rather dramatic silvery smoky eye on her so it could go with several different outfits without having to change the makeup. We may be doing another photoshoot tomorrow (Thursday) but we'll see. It has been really hot here the past couple of days and I went out yesterday to get some color (might as well take advantage of not having a job huh!?) and I got burned!! 

It hurts, lol, and makes the heat even worse but oh well. I'm glad I got some color because I've been soooo white lately. Yesterday was also day 1 of the Insanity workout for me. I took some pictures so that I can better see the transition my body makes (hopefully) during the 60 days. I also went to the gym with my friend earlier in the day so I was beat. I went to bed at like 9:30pm, haha. I'm super excited to be doing this workout and am only a little sore as I've been running pretty regularly and going to the gym with my friend Nicole. Oh! I am going swimming today for the first time in like... years! I'm really excited, lol. Swimming is such great exercise without a ton of impact on your joints and my knees tend to start hurting me (thanks softball!).

I hope everyone is doing well and I will work on my friend more to get some shots and maaaaaybe post my before pictures for the Insanity workout. :-) Thanks so much for reading!

Another Update

Hi Ladies,

I just wanted to jot out a quick post to update you guys on what's going on in my life. I did not get the job I was talking about last time but, as they do, they told me they'd keep my resume, yadda yadda. I'm really trying hard not to go the retail route because I want something that can become a career and something that won't make me want to shoot myself everyday, haha.

I am still cooking but, alas, tried to take photos of my last meal only to discover my battery was dead. I am all charged up now (as is my flip cam!) and I am definitely going to start taking pictures and the like to show you guys. 

I got my hair done by my friend Jaymi Griffin; she's all trained and such. It is now a deep auburn and is cut to brush my shoulders in the front while being a bit shorter in the back and I kept my side-swept bangs. I am excited to show you guys, been looking through my photos for good before hair pictures but suffice to say my hair was multi-colored (had old caramel highlights and whatnot) and super long. 

Tonight and tomorrow night I am helping out a friend who is taking photos for a biker calendar that one of her friends is making - I will be doing her makeup (and maybe hair). I'm super excited! I've only ever done someone else's makeup like... once, hahha, but I am most assuredly passionate and excited to maybe start some kind of "business" with doing peoples' makeup. I'm hopeless with my own hair but we'll see what comes out :-)

I want to thank all of you for following and hope you guys are having a great start to the summer!
