I have been very busy lately, and I’m very happy that last month is in the past. I have been very devoted to finishing the Sprinkles Blanket which is the largest project that I have embarked on. Working with PremierYarns is absolutely wonderful but I’m probably shifting to another brand for a while. This morning, I got the chance to go use my coupon at Jo-Ann. It was 55% off one item which I used the opportunity to get something I don’t usually. The winner is the Bernat Velvet yarn in Gray Orchid. I don’t quite know what I’m going to make which is what I can normally do now because every time I plan a project it backfires. My current project is far from perfect but it is what it is. I’ve done some windowshopping and there are definitely some things that I like not everything and come on with me or be sent to my studio. After I finish this blanket I’m going to work on my path rug and then maybe plan the next project. Knitting is my creative passion even though I am not a professional nor do I do anything perfectly. My blogging is not perfect either but it’s okay since just getting things out of my head makes everything better. So it’s back to the knitting and LivePD. I’ll be back later when there’s more on my mind.
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.
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.
While I understand that this is the worst day in the history of this country it is also a day that I am making the best to forget about my personal connection. My ex lost his brother that day and I know that they had not been to counseling. I currently do not know what the situation is nor do I really want to because Even though I am no longer involved with the family it’s still strikes a nerve. Anyway I am relaxing with the pooch watching television-nothing newsworthy-but my plan is to stay home and relax while I recuperate from my back surgery. Last night I slept very well because I borrowed my dogs sofa pillow. The bandage was taken off in the middle the night because it was irritating me. Being allergic to adhesive totally stinks. Just an FYI: I’m using my New Jersey State police bubble mug. I hope everybody has a calm and relaxing day and GodBless everyone and anyone whose lives were touched by the events 14 years ago.
well it’s just a regular kinda day here and I’m just taking a day to relax with family and work on what’s important; I love my life and blessed to have a the schedule where I can do whatever whenever. I am just spending quiet time to think about everything going on. It’s sad news about Frank Gifford and Buddy Baker also it’s annoying news that the Ward family wants to cause more termoil in NASCAR, like I have always said Tony didn’t kill the boy and he wouldn’t be dead if he wasn’t under the influence of marijuana-He also went against policy when he got out of his vehicle and walked into traffic.
- Last night I spent time relaxing after I caught up with my new favorite Sunday television program. Caitlyn Jenner is absolutely amazing and she has always been the most sane of The Kardashian Jenner family. Also I have come to realize that I have 15+ celebrity friends on my Facebook profile and I’m very blessed to have them as Facebook family; very fortunate that they are “fan friendly”. I have also gained some friends on my LinkedIn profile which I’m very pleasant to have what I consider “I profile” personalities/friends in high places. It’s very interesting I find that it rained briefly this morning and Siri did not have that on her forecast. I’ve been spending the day watching discovery life, investigation discovery. What can I say I’m a discovery junkie. I am once again enjoying my social networking. Not sure what I will be doing this evening but it’ll definitely end up relaxing in my comfortable bed with my thoughts and contemplating on what is coming up next for me. Sending love and blessings to all of my readers.
Relaxing with my friend today and I’m actually enjoying myself. Haven’t relaxed in a long time. I sometimes think what would it be like to downsize to a condo but as long as Pink is around because she already has her life perfect asdo I for the most part. I’m happy and that’s all that matters. I know I’m probably missing something on tv but I’m happy with my day. tobe updated later.
So it’s later and I’m home relaxing with my queen and digesting my wonderful Red Robin meal. We are watching Discovery Life and hanging out with each other for the rest of the day. I was in a bathing suit for the first time in years today and I was some what surprised that my fat ass fit into it. Didn’t even have the realization that I bought and was wearing an extra large in “juniors”. I still like it because it’s the American Flag with Starfish and even though it shows my problem areas I love the suit and reminds me that I still have a few pounds to lose. I’ll be back in a few hours
