sorry for being.....

I feel like this was the most hectic month everrrr.... summer's officially ended, school's officially started (August 16th) & I am now officially the busiest Mom I've ever known... LOL.... as many of you know, I have 2 boys & they are now both goin to school.... my oldest, Devean, started 1st grade & my baby, Deion, started preschool..... & boy oh boy! lemme tell you I have never been this busy in my whole life... my day starts at 6:45 AM now... drop one off, drop the other off, pick one up, pick the other one up is what mostly consist my day.... they have different schedules too.... imagine if I'm workin?!? sheeeesshhhh!! that would be crazeee!!!

it was hard getting up really early in the morning at first coz I got so used to sleepin in until around lunch time... I picked up this habit since I stopped workin in '08 & kept it until right before school year started... I know, I know! it wasn't such a good habit, I'm not proud of it either.... I'm spoiled, I'm lazy, I'm too comfortable having people around that cooks & does other things that I don't have to worry about... but you know what, I'm glad I now have a reason to get up & do things, kick some sense of responsibility into me.... I gotta admit, I like it... I like getting up early in the morning, I get things done, I have time to do my workout.... & I feel like I get to bond with my kids more.... I love it....

{ some pictures of the little school boys & us droppin them off to their first day of school }
I was glad I get to capture this one... awwwww....

my baby did not want Mommy to leave.... =( leavin him there cryin was the hardest thing to do...

but he was sure happy to see us when we picked him up later that day...

but yeah, that was the reason why I have abandoned my blog temporarily.... no more stayin up late during school nights & of course, weekend is play time.. so I really have no time to blog lately.... sorry to all my fellow beauty addicts that were looking forward to my posts.... I am still trying to adapt to my new schedule & I'm pretty sure I will find the time for bloggin eventually....

anyhoooo... back to the more interesting stuff...

so lately, while I was away from the whole blogging scene... I've been pickin up some stuff here & there... not too much though... for some reason, I don't see anything that really gets my attention.... I know I have stuff on my drool list but I just don't have a strong urge to pick any of them up....

here are the things I got for the last couple of weeks....


from Sally's
China Glaze nail polishes

Curlformers Hair Curling Spirals

from CVS
Milani lipstick in Rose Hip

reminds me so much of MAC's Petals & Peacocks lippie

from Ross
Color Club nail polish sets

I have been looking for this brand for a while now, I was so happy when I found it at Ross, I got them for $7.99 each vs $20 regular price each...

from Rite-Aid
L'Oreal H.I.P. Shadow Duos

Wet n Wild Lipstick
the one with no label is the Bare It All

I've opened only the Bare It All so far.... this has become my go-to everyday lip color... it's the best neutral lip colored lippie... I apologize if it looks gross... haha... I've been using it so much lately

Wet n Wild Color Icon Creme Shadow Pencil

Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeliner Pencil

I also got several pieces of clothing & some accessories that I will blog about in a different post... I don't wanna go way overboard... so watch out for that...

another update.... I had my hair trimmed again... I'm actually tryin to grow it out, coz I'm getting kinda tired of this hair style, I've had it for more than almost 2 years now..... but the back gets so thick & shapeless.... so i had to visit my stylist for a little trim in the back & on the fringe...
