Another journal entry, there are several stories of interest for me today but out of respect for the families involved-I am not going to share them because one is drama and two are family matters that I don’t want to invade because Media needs to respect privacy and has a low level columnist, I am not going to invade privacy when it has been asked to not. Today was a very good day just like the past few even though I spent the day knitting and actually caught a stitch slip which I couldn’t go back and fix I did my interview. Anyway aside from that one issue my projects are going well-Pink has decided to go crazy on me and not eat normal like she used to-we got her some mixed vegetables and she even turned her nose up at that for the most part though she graze. Lulu Rose loves the vegetables-I think Pink wants butter on her vegetables and I don’t think my mom is going to go for that. Anyway I am sitting in bed after a quite busy afternoon. I’m actually looking for jewel early night Because today was a very long day and I’m very happy that LivePD is coming back tomorrow night. Also looking forward to the new series LiveRescue Coming in April. Anyway I think I’m going to sign off for the night if I find an article worthy of posting I will.
The big question is, who made Mr. Cook look like this
I am sitting here watching homicide hunter and knitting. The girls are hanging out with me and I have made the executive decision to start feeding the queen vegetable medley at night instead of kibble or baby carrots. I think that she has come to that age where she needs a bedtime snack. I finished the platoon scarf and now I am working on the newspaper blanket, A project that is 105 stitches long or should I say wide and even though I cast done via a size 5 single needle-I have transferred it to a size 6 circular needle. So I continue with my story about my knitting, I have gone several rounds/rows with the newspaper stripes & I’m actually enjoying working a larger project vs smaller / shorter projects. Though I am thinking about purchasing more yarn bags so that I can have multiple projects at a time. I have two blanket projects going and a ton of needles and yarn. Along with the crafting stockpile, I have a full selection of my favorite cosmetic brands. Enough that I was gifted a second craft trolley to keep my stuff in. I probably have enough concealer and foundation for months, maybe for the remainder of 2019. Even though I have my favorite brands, I haven’t ruled out adding another brand or two. I have been interested in several new to me brands. If you didn’t know, I sometimes sample a brand via PoshMark. PoshMark is one of those places where you can buy and sell practically anything fashion related of course then there is Mecari hey similar site which I have not tried and not quite sure if I’m going to hell because apparently they don’t crack down on fakes/imitation, as well as Poshmark, does. Next month I have a few possible new promotions coming-we will see how things work. Regardless if I do or do not get an ambassadorship, If I like a product I will review it and share it with my followers-if I love it then I will do my damnedest to promote the hell out of it So as I wrap up this post, both my sweet girls are resting at my feet, hoping that we have a quiet night of peaceful rest. Good night God bless and as always, thank you for reading.
Last night, was interesting-I sat in bed and did a lot of thinking about everything-places I wish I could go and things I wish I could do. Even though I love my life as it is I know that it can be better, Not saying anything is wrong with my life because certainly not other than a few missing pieces. I thought about how much I missed the Caribbean and how much I hate snow and cold. I love the city of Philadelphia but there are other cities I love also, Not saying anything is wrong with my life because certainly not other than a few missing pieces. I thought about how much I missed the Caribbean and how much I hate snow and cold. I love the city of Philadelphia but there are other cities I love also, I had the fortune of growing up in the virgin islands and if I went back there I don’t think I would ever return or maybe I will go to Florida so I had voting rights. Because voting to me it’s very important. Anyway I have been flirting with a new brand of stores in the cosmetics community. Tarte Cosmetics has launched a junior, sugar rush cosmetics. It is a lower-priced high-quality brand available at Ulta and online of course. I’m still thinking about that. Due to the crazy shipping policy of Sephora, I have spent probably $12 unnecessarily in shipping, I’m still frustrated with the fact that we cannot get our “gift” without paying for another product-what’s the damn point of calling them GIFs if you must make a purchase in order to redeem gift. Anyway I have made it damn clear via Twitter and my reviews my future with the company is in doubt. Thankfully I have accounts with my favorite brands that I either voluntarily promote or I’m an ambassador for. There are two nutrition groups that I have my eyes on that I might want to do ambassadorship with. One is based in Bethlehem Pennsylvania and the other is based in the great state of Lexington Kentucky. But who knows I may do both I’m hotel and kickbacks will help me decide which is better. So I have been doing a lot of knitting today and not much updating Facebook at least my account, I have been working off one of the kids accounts because I didn’t want to see a lot of the drama that’s going on in other places. I did not go to the gym today but I did get a workout in after a little bit. I did some research on anti-inflammatory foods and foods that will help with constipation etc. today was just one of those days where I didn’t really give two fucks. I’m at that point in my life where I do not care about certain things I do care about my country of course but there are things that I do not care about and that would be the crazy shit happening in other countries I don’t think it’s necessary to worry the Americans with what’s going on in other countries right now unless it’s going to affect our country. I am rather pissed off at the Democrats because they put our president in a awkward position with the Mueller report which found out that there was no collusion with Russia etc. and the Democrats made too much damn money out of that situation now it’s time for us Republicans and independents to fight back bring the country back to where of my ancestors once viewed it or had it. Aside from my country, I have been thinking about my addictions. My addiction to shopping is thankfully controlled by my higher-ups. If I were to find a relationship, I would need to find a very rich bastard who would be able to pay for and put up with my crazy. When I say my crazy, I mean my day today-when you have autism you never have a predictable day because you do not know when or what will trigger an anxiety attack etc. or you never know what interaction will trigger you. Anyhow this entry has been very long and rambling but it’s very therapeutic for me to release my angsts and energy. So I will sign off for now and I will return to the journal portion at a different time.
So the past few days have been very interesting, between the Sephora saga and today is my dad’s angel anniversary; 11 years ago today. I have been having mood swings and all kinds of crankiness. Usually, my patience can be kind of unpredictable. I usually like to keep to a schedule and if I get off schedule I get very upset frustrated etc. with regard to the Sephora saga, the other day I was interested in getting my free 500 point reward: Tarte Cosmetics Quench Hydrating Primer. I was very unhappy with the fact that you currently are unable to redeem gifts over a certain point amount. So having to make a cash purchase just to get your gift is absolutely ridiculous. When I couldn’t redeem my gift in the store I sent an aggravated tweet to Sephora. Within a few hours, I had a reply from them that they’d forward my displeasure. So with my #LuckyDayApp $10 off, I was able to correct the mistake I made yesterday and traded in one item for another unit of the 500 points VIB Prize. Mind you when I got home from my activities today, I placed an order and I’m getting another one: the third primer along with some setting spray which I need for my back up drawer. Speaking of back up drawer I know I have 10 extra drawers because I went to Michael’s this morning and purchased a second 10 drawer multicolor craft trolley which I use as a makeup trolley. Lord help me if I need a third one. In other news, today is the 11th anniversary of my father’s passing and every year for the past 11 years has been very difficult this time of year from mid-March until after Easter. In fact, any day/holiday specifically is more difficult without my dad around but I am very blessed to have had him in my life. Even though he was not my biological father, he was my dad a dad who accepted me for who I knew if and or buts. You will always be one of my favorite angels and I know he’s always watching over me and the family. So for lunch today we all took a road trip up to his hometown and had lunch etc pizza and cheesesteak. Yes, I’m rambling and being random but that’s how my mind is tonight. Tomorrow’s going to be back to some kind of normalcy. Junk food for the month is done if you can even call it junk food, I no longer eat like that very often. So I think it’s bedtime for now and I’ll get back to regular blogging tomorrow, hopefully, there’s gonna be something worth sharing.
So I have some interesting news about my #ShoppingAddiction #BeautyCollection, I am getting a second make up trolley from my favorite craft store. Michael’s Crafts has anything and everything in the way of organization and creativity in my opinion. While I do you shop in in other places, I do enjoy going on a shopping spree occasionally there and I am fortunate enough to have a location nearby. A lot of my shopping is done online but also a lot of my shopping is done in the store, it just depends on what I need and when. While I am a bargain shopper I also love story and names when it comes to certain items. My skin care is necessary to be #TarteCosmetics. My toothpaste must be a certain brand because it is the best out there for sensitive teeth. If you want to know more about this magical toothpaste, feel free to drop me an email or a tweet or message on any of my feeds. I love spending my time at the gym as much as I love spending my time at home with my canines working on my netting. My knitting is something that connects me to too late family members. My Nana who passed away in 2010, taught me how to knit while we were on vacation; or should I say in my #2Home, #TheUnitedStatesVirginIslands.A place in which I am very fortunate to have spent a lot of my youth and adolescence. I still follow many things the Virgin Islands and I tell everybody who says that I need to come down for a visit that if I ever came back to the island I would not go home. And going home/being at home I have a reason to be here. Just because I can “work from anywhere/At home” doesn’t mean that I don’t have responsibilities here in my home state, in my home Township. Over the past maybe two years I have become more involved in my community, maybe less than two years but it feels like forever because I have always wanted to be connected be involved. I have lived in this particular Township since 1985 and I severely care about what happens here while I don’t always agree with the politics in this town, I like having friends in high places and friends in high places means that you don’t always have the same ideas politically. Speaking of politics, I’m very much looking forward to the 2019 primaries. The 2019 primaries for my jurisdiction is May 21 and I am blessed enough to have my jurisdiction headquarters right down the street from me. I am the deputy constable of elections. Some people think that even though it’s a twice a year job we don’t have to work all year round but they are wrong. On a side note, I am sitting here in bed watching #LivePD,I really really despise this asshole subjects who say “You work for me” or I need to sign such and such I don’t see such and such “show me a trespassing warrant” “You know you’re violating me and you know you’re going to regret it“ when a subject try to intimidate an officer while they’re performing their legal duties it drives me absolutely insane because people think they know the law more than an officer. As someone who has followed her law throughout her life and as someone who respects law-enforcement etc. I have self-educating myself on certain topics so I do know something I’m not gonna reveal anything but I have been told that I could be a police officer. So this blog was originally about my cosmetics addiction, I will say that I have a cosmetics addiction as well as a urine addiction, I do like to go shopping in general and sometimes I do stockpile which is why I started this entry in the first place because my make up stockpile drawer for a back up items is practically overflowing. So I am going to go scour the interwebs and see what else is of interest for sharing on this blog. Thank you for listening or shall I say reading my rambles.
Dear readers, I have been cutting back on the crazy posting of things that annoy me because lately, I’ve been needing to find my peace and sanity. I have been doing a lot of work on Instagram-I do primarily free promotions of products that I use on the daily. I am not particularly open to offers of “will you promote this or that for us” unless it is a product that I do use-I got a message on Facebook from a lady in a small town in the state of Virginia-I love the state of Virginia but I don’t necessarily want to hook up business wise for someone that I do not know, anyways she was wanting me to probably purchased from her in order to get a Scentsy Business off the ground.-No thank you-I know about the company I have witnessed certain celebrities work with the company and I do not want to go there also I have been monitoring a lot of make up brands because many are coming out with very similar products there is one company that in particular, I do not like because all they do is copycat household brands cosmetics wise. I am always monitoring for copycat wannabes so everybody out there needs to watch their ass because you never know who’s watching you. And I know there are people probably watching me. I have been gracious so far and I’m going to continue to be gracious about the comments and compliments. Whether I am officially working with any brand or not I am going to be good to them and push their products because I like their products not because I’m getting paid to or getting benefits too. Tonight I am up late watching television, have my iPad next to me because there is a special coming up about our beloved the late great Coy Luther Perry II. It has been 13 days since he left us suddenly and tragically, I have learned so much more than I ever would’ve thought about Dylan McKay/Fred Andrews, I am very proud of how he kept his personal life and family life off the charts off the radar, I wish other celebrities had the knack to keep their privacy. Certain celebrities need to realize that their 15 minutes/15 years of fame is dunno. Certain people need to relax and realize when their careers are at a standstill. Last night I dreamt about my own house, also known as not happening but I would love if I could transform the garage into an apartment. I am used to my new living arrangement but I am very unsettled that I do not have any privacy, sleeping in a room with my dogs Is not the problem-the problem is I no longer have my own bathroom, I no longer of doors on a bedroom-I am sleeping in a common room. There is something good that’s come out of this whole mess though, getting my my own make up trolley-something that I wanted from the very beginning of my journey in to the cosmetics world-today I added a new palette to the collection -#LoveInLondon, #BHCosmetics that is the brand that I found on #Poshmark, Posh Mark is where I go when I need something but I do not wanna pay full price or I do not want to pay full price for an item I want to try. Trying a brand and not having to pay full price is pretty damn good and they have definitely cracked down on counterfeit. I am now primarily a buyer, I did sell a few things for my collection which I will admit I wish I had placed differently so I got a higher storm of money but I learned. Some days I’m Ballin on a budget some days I don’t mind paying full price for something. There are days where I am daydreaming about a vacation but at the same time, I know that if I went on vacation I may or may not come home because I’d be content with different scenery. Anyway hopefully tomorrow, I will be finding some new stuff to post and I may even be starting a new category on the website because I find a lot of things on Pinterest that I really like and I like to share things that make me happy or make me think etc.
So it’s been a while since I’ve sat down with a few minutes to myself. The girls are sleeping and I’m watching television. It’s been a long and emotionally charged month and we are only halfway through March. The loss of Luke Perry has thrown a dagger through the hearts of millions of people around the world. I’ve learned more about Dylan now that he’s gone, I know that he’s a very private person which I love about him. He kept his children protected as well as his personal life. I was sharing articles on here for what felt like forever. Aside from the onslaught of Luke Perry news, there was also a steady stream of articles about Lori Loughlin who along with other parents were in serious trouble for bribery and college fraud. Let’s just say her and her daughter’s careers are toasted. Many other things happening in the world but for my own sanity, I am not sharing everything I see on the web. So in other news, I have been knitting a lot and I’m still working out on the daily. It’s just hit me that I am absolutely exhausted and could sleep for a while if I could. So adios for a while.
So Facebook and Instagram are not cooperating with me, I have several in the holding tank on Instagram and I have been avoiding Facebook the best they can-many things I want to repost on Instagram and I cannot. I am working on my knitting and watching television, very happy that I did not have anything removed at the doctors office this morning #DermatologistAppointment, shared several articles regarding Brandon Margera and also Luke Perry-It is still difficult to believe that Mr. Perry is no longer with us. I am very happy to know that he is at peace in the country specifically Dickinson Tennessee where he had a farm since 1995. I’m looking forward to seeing the Beverly Hills 90210 reboot because rumor has it that they are going to find a way to honor and tribute our wonderful Dylan McKay. I know I said that I was going to write a letter to Luke but every time I look around and think about what I wanna say, someone else has already set it Dickinson Tennessee where he had a farm since 1995. I’m looking forward to seeing the Beverly Hills 90210 reboot because rumor has it that they are going to find a way to honor and tribute our wonderful Dylan McKay. I know I said that I was going to write a letter to Luke but every time I look around and think about what I wanna say, someone else has already said it. Anyway I have been doing some ridiculous shopping of things I don’t necessarily need but I wanted and I had the funds to get them so I did but being at the middle of the month I have told myself no more until the middle of April. President Trump has just officially put all the 737 max Boeing aircraft on holding pattern meaning they cannot fly after the recent crash I believe it was in Ethiopia. There of been so many different things going on in the world that I’ve been trying to distance myself from because the less stress and less anxiety. Still going strong at the gym I have not been back since I weighed in at 160 pounds-uncertain if I’m still there but I am watching what I eat. In the recent days I’ve been getting away with only one cuppa coffee and I have been drinking a lot of water and hot chocolate on ice. With the use of my magical toothpaste, my teeth and become whiter and the sensitivity has virtually gone away. I am still an independent consultant with regard to that product and several others that link is on my website-I have been monitoring Instagram etc. for all kinds of things that I can promote. There is a few make up/cosmetic companies that are making duplicate/copycat product and some of them are going after the big boys. When you go after a big boy company with a fake knock off it’s very annoying and frustrating especially when it’s a company that I do promotions for whether it be official or not. Also with regard to the incident yesterday at Wegmans-if you don’t follow me on Facebook messenger you may not know this-but yesterday I was leaving the gym, going to the grocery store-some guy walked up to me and said where is your jacket, it’s cold out-I said my sweatshirt is warm enough. Then he went on to ask if I wanted a beer, Thank you but no thank you-by the way the governor of California just suspended the death penalty but going back to Wegmans-that was the first time that someone’s ever gotten up in my face like that and with that being said I now carry pepper spray. Anyway enough with my rambles and hopefully I will be able to post on Facebook and Instagram in the near future. Until then I will be posting here on the blog.
So I’ve been thinking about so many things over the last few days and I’ve decided to dump my mind. I’ve been working on my fitness journey on a regular basis. My eating is better despite the cold snap we’ve found ourselves in. Phuck you Phil, thought you proclaimed that spring would be here sooner than later? Last time I checked the scale, it was 10 lbs from my goal but I don’t know if I have hit a bump or not. Wish I could eliminate some more of my cravings that are leftover. Watching television all day with my pups and knitting. Yes I have enough yarn for a while but that’s not going to stop me from shopping for it. I love grabbing things that catch my eye and crafting keeps my Nana’s memory alive. I have been sharing articles of interest but ever since the news of Luke Perry’s stroke- I’ve been in a rut. A rut that I don’t know when I’m going to emerge from. I have shared so many political articles lately that I’m on political burnout. Do I fully support the Republican Party? No, I don’t & no I don’t fully support the Democrats either. I’m completely frustrated with the happenings in my country and I can say that because it was my 8th and 10th generation grandfather were responsible for the birth of this nation. Anyway, I need to go relax with my pups until I find any other news of importance.
So good afternoon everybody! I am writing this from the road because my uncle was lucky enough to receive notification today that his new vehicle was ready for pick up. Anyway I learned some interesting things when I went retail therapy browsing for mainly in Ulta beauty. I learned some things that are good and some things that are not so good. Not so good, is the fact that the brand in which I started my make up collection with is apparently filing for bankruptcy or has filed for bankruptcy in the recent years and it is just coming to light because she is struggling with sales and has a lot of merchandise in a warehouse that she is trying to liquidate. Now the article that I shared earlier to with my blog, it was about #MallyGirl. Which was or is the original #MallyBeauty, Ulta beauty or Mally Beauty is working on pulling out of all Ulta beauty locations I don’t know what the future of those products are going to be but if you don’t perform well enough in a brick-and-mortar store such as Ulta beauty-I don’t know how long your company will last. The good news from Ulta beauty is that my favorite low-cost high-quality brand #BHCosmetics is going to be getting a bigger display, #Neutrogena is going to be downsizing it’s display there is going to be new displays on that one side of theKing of Prussia location. Very happy about the upgrades coming to my local #UltaBeauty. I received my order from Urban Decay, sending the two vice special effects liquid lippies to the stockpile drawer. Definitely exciting to know I can wear whatever brand of lip color then have a long-lasting top coat. Be that my beauty products arrived earlier than expected, I wonder if my #LennyAndLarry’s stockpile order is going to be arriving early. Mom purchased a new snack for us all a paleo friendly snack that is vegan organic and delicious. Also, I have been posting a few random articles to the website today. Looking forward to getting the life back with regard to being copilot to my mom. Life is going to be good from here on out. I’ll be doing a little more sharing the website before bedtime even though the adrenaline rush has gotten everyone exhausted. God Bless America and our wonderful military and all first responders.
