Frustrated Friday And Aftermath

Good evening and thank you sweet Lord for giving me a beautiful day after yesterday’s turmoil even though last night was another slippery slope, today was absolutely gorgeous in many ways except for the temperature. Last night there was another difference of opinion in the household and I have decided that from here on out regardless, I am going to keep my mouth shut which is not easy for me to do under any circumstance especially when someone upsets me. Are usually turn to my Internet audience to vent my feelings and make myself feel better. I woke up this morning, somehow thinking it was #SundayFunDay- but no it was Saturday-that was OK though-I’m still debating about going back to the gym on Monday morning because of the shenanigans and bullshit from yesterday-I’m still thinking about upgrading my home gym with other items because I don’t like the energy in LA Fitness anymore. To feel pressured to join a personal training program on top of being lied to about the monthly assessment being complementary sans signing up for the personal training, bullshit lies and I’m not gonna deal with anything in that realm anymore because I am not going to be stressed out in a place where I go to relieve stress and better myself. Anyhow as I sip my coffee #DecafCoffee this evening and I am drinking from my Hogwarts mug/Jeffree Star Metal straw – yes I said #JeffreeStar metal straw. I was blessed this morning in copious amounts at the King of Prussia Mall. I was always looking at the metal straws, but because of the fiasco W/shop a phi – I didn’t have confidence in ordering from #JeffreeStarCosmetics Website along with the fact I’m angry with him over his shade drama whatever you wanna call it W/Shane Dawson collaboration etc.-I am not giving my money to people who I don’t agree with their socializing if that makes sense on the flipside of things, I am very excited because I definitely got my #StrawberryDream in many ways today and yesterday and yesterday my mom was gracious enough to gift me the strawberry dream eyeshadow palette, today I woke up to not only a mention on Instagram but a product share. In other words #LunarBeauty used my photo from yesterday to advertise the continuing sale they are having where everything is half-price. I don’t know how long the sale is going to last but I was very very very excited to know that one of my favorite brands used my photograph in a promo. Now my uncle has a good question, are they going to give me any royalties or benefits for using my photo? I don’t think so and I don’t know-I don’t even know if they have a loyalty/ambassador program. Also, I added a new item to my skincare routine yes it includes hyaluronic acid-it is a beautiful pleasant-smelling moisturizer which can go on twice a day morning x night Olay Regenerist sculpting cream. So I don’t know where to end this wonderful update but since I haven’t really had a chance to sit relax and craft today I’m going to go do that before I hit the hay for the evening so I am counting my blessings and I am very thankful today.

Black Friday Frustration

So I am really frustrated with this morning because it could have been avoided if people would just listen to me. I will first say that I really dislike anyone who is untruthful with me. On Monday I was told that I would get a free fitness assessment on a monthly basis but the new fitness manager failed epically by telling me that it was complimentary and I did not need to sign up for the personal training program which was a complete fucking lie as I found out after my workout this morning which was the free assessment. The money management guy and the fitness manager were practically forcing me to sign up for the personal training program which is not covered in the package I have and believe me if I could leave #LAFitness and go to a different gym I definitely would because I do not appreciate being pressured by anyone to do anything financially that I am not willing or wanting to do. I already did a tweet to LA fitness with my complaint and I am taking a few days off from the gym, I’m actually contemplating getting a few more equipment pieces in my home so that I can home gym more often I know that my insurance is paying for this membership which I appreciate but I do not appreciate the bullying. So that caused an anxiety issue I was extremely irritated. Blessed am I that I have a mother who is capable and willing to handle these anxiety meltdowns at the drop of a hat because she did my shopping for me at the mall so I didn’t have to fight the Black Friday crowds at King of Prussia. God bless everyone and anyone who decided to brave it. I usually enjoy going to the mall to get my cardio and coffee speaking of coffee there was another controversial situation in Tulsa Oklahoma at Starbucks with regard to being derogatory and inappropriate with regard to law enforcement. Anyone who disrespects law-enforcement is not deserved to have a job in retail regardless of the position if you cannot respect the men and women in uniform regardless if they are police fire paramedics doctors nurses military etc. do not fucking get a job in the public workforce if you have to deal with being a waiter or waitress barista etc. I’m sick of law-enforcement being disrespected that is unacceptable and also unacceptable is the bullshit going on in Washington with regard to “impeachment” Mr. President is the best thing that has happened to this country whether I agree with everything he’s doing or not whether I agree with his attitude or not he is doing what he sees fit to protect my country that my eighth-generation grandfather signed the Declaration of Independence for. With that being said speaking of retail and the King of Prussia Mall-they were open doors at 5 PM yesterday but there were not all stores open at 5 PM somewhere opening later like at 7 PM and somewhere not opening at all last night-I don’t think that is proper-I know this could’ve been a test run to see if anyone would shop on Thanksgiving day. But next year I would hope that they modify everything and make it mandatory that all doors all shops must be open at 5 PM at 7 PM at whatever damn time the mall is open all stores must be open Hope it works so I know it takes money to do all this it takes money to pay the employees but if the mall is going to be open , I would advise that all stores be open I was planning to purchase my strawberry dream last night but because the shop was not open even though they said 25% off online/in-store open the store wasn’t open and when they say 25% off all brand and collaborations that’s pretty fucking awesome but the I am I wanted was not brand for the store nor was it a collaboration but I was blessed enough that it was gifted to me as a Christmas present extra. Anyhow-what else do I need to say? So I am charging my iPhone at the moment and while I was charging it before I started this entry, I was watching a blog about #JeffreeStar and his issues-once again they have fucking problems with their website and their check out which makes me reevaluate my membership in the Star family. considering his products are extremely expensive or moderately expensive depending on what you purchase I’m going to continue to use what I have but will I purchase again? That is always a question on everything and I don’t trust certain things and if I cannot trust regardless of if I buy in store or online the odds of me re-purchasing go down. Once again there were problems at checkout with the mystery boxes just like there were problems at checkout with the previous collaboration he did I had problems with that collaboration because I felt it was not exciting enough it was not thrilling enough to me nor was I a fan of who he collaborated with. Also I have thought about switching some of my products from a high-end to a much more budget friendly brand or brands.. I love Sephora and I love Ulta beauty so it’s going to be able to see who wins my loyalty. So for the rest of the evening I’m going to go read and relax and not worry about anything since today was extremely trying. Blessings and love to everybody and thank you for putting up with my drama even though I like my life drama free a lot of things happen that I’ve been dramatic lately, unfortunately.

Sicker Update

Good Morning and welcome to #Thanksgiving2019. I have much to be thankful for this year. I have my health, my spirituality, and my talents. It’s one of the times where pretty much everything #FacebookAndInstagram are overrun with traffic and they can’t handle it. Go figure. Thankful that I was able to get some done before the overload of people. I had to fix LuluRose’s account. #LunaBrand is her new nickname. Blessed are the peacekeepers and all first responders including the military and medical employees who are always on the clock. After this entry is finished I’m going to go knit and read. Until later.

I’m very thankful for my family and friends also everything in this picture collage.

Monday @FabFitFun Etc Notes

Dear Readers, I am excited to announce that I have been gifted a membership to FabFitFun! Looking forward to seeing the goodies every quarter. Also looking forward to getting the holiday weight off. I really enjoyed the month-long yoga class but I kind of got lazy af after that. Definitely going to recalibrate my lifestyle because I do want to be healthy. I have beauty items that I am interested in waiting for me over at #UltaBeauty. Like I said before, I am going to be re-visiting the #BeautyOnABudget because of the increasing amount of drama happening in the high-end beauty community u. The beautiful thing about UltaBeauty is that they have low end & high end. I don’t know if I am or am not still on the review squad for NYXCosmetics since I have not received any boxes lately. But I am going to be doing a product review for whatever arrives in my seasonal boxes from #FabFitFun. Getting my FabFitFun boxes are going to be exciting since it has the potential to cut down on the surprise spending. So it was day number two of back in the gym, I made an appointment for another fitness assessment since I have not had one since January. Apparently, there are supposed to be monthly assessments even if you don’t have a training program. But anyway I am spending the rest of the day at the house working on the crafting etc. Tomorrow and Wednesday are home gym days due to schedule conflicts. I know that this is a short entry but I don’t have much to say today. So until later, I am going to be off the radar.

Triple Day Rambling Tea

Good Morning and Happy Sunday, I am working my tail off today just as any other day of the week. Thankfully, the weather is being somewhat kind as it is above freezing. Meaning that I don’t need to get hot coffee. Though because of another twisted ankle, I’m going slow as molasses. Last night, I put in an offer on Poshmark for the weekend festival eyeshadow palette & it was accepted. Just like with certain TooFacedCosmetics, I collect certain items. I love BHCosmetics because of the formula. I have a good social networking relationship with certain companies and as an influencer, it’s my duty to spill the tea. Just like JeffreeStar does with certain companies etc. Regarding Jeffree, I am going on a diet because I am not pleased with drama. Today, the activity will be of the crafting variety. It could be knitting or could be witchcraft! I’m so much happier as a witch and don’t really care about other opinions as long as my immediate family understands why. Anyway, I am enjoying the day watching CopsTv and going back and forth with the the last event of the season just because it’s always a nerve racking thing. The 4 running for the cup have all been there before except for Denny Hamlin. The only repeat champion I would be pissed off about is Kyle Busch. So it’s Monday and I just saw the Cheetos make up in person & JeffreeStar is right -blah it’s nothing to write home about even though I am including it in the entry. On the other hand, even though I love Jeffree, I am not happy with him at the moment, he is throwing shade at different people throwing shade at him. I also learned some things about him from the past that I don’t like-apparently he supported bulimia or suggested people should be bulimic-not sure which one but as someone who has an image disorder which I don’t always talk about – I don’t appreciate people suggesting something for someone else’s well-being. Not everybody has an amazing metabolism that can eat whatever they want and still stay slim. up until I was 29-ish, I was able to stay below 130 pounds-I haven’t seen that weight in several years I would love to be that size again but I’m not going to starve myself etc. just to fit an image that society wants. But back to the cosmetics genre, I do have a few more things to say about the community. I’ve mentioned that Kat Von D is controversial as is the case with James Charles but I recently learned that there are problems with TooFacedCosmetics – something with regard to the NikkiTutorials collaboration where apparently she was not paid for the unit sales. With that said, I still love and use my TFC just like I love my JSC products and will continue to use them. Also, I am still using my NYXCosmetics. So I have some interesting news about Anastasia Beverly Hills X Huda Beauty, no they are not collaborating, I have news on both. I haven’t officially tried either brand but I would be more inclined to try Anastasia vs Huda because apparently Huda is homophobic etc. With that said, I wouldn’t give someone my money who isn’t open to the entire customer base. With regard to Anastasia Beverly Hills, I have looked at it before I think they released a lot in a rapid succession and their prices are A little high for my blood four colors that are already in my beauty collection so would I try them yes but would I try them retail absolutely not. But I think I have drawn this entry on long enough and I’m going to say good night to this entry. Thank you for bearing with me on this rambling post. day
