as you may all know by now, most of the time, I procrastinate on my blog posts (ok & maybe with everything else too)..... something that I hope I can change this year, but hey if this thing called LIFE is what's getting in the way of blogging, then there is really nothing I can do... LOL... okay, I don't wanna be too overdramatic on my very first blog post of the year, so let's get on with it....
let me start off by saying Happy New Year to you all!!! I hope you all had a great NYE....
we didn't really do anything this year.... just our regular poker night with friends... it was very low key, but fun as always!! it was funny coz we got there literally a minute before midnight!! why???? coz I was doin my NYE LOTD!! haha... last minute, I decided to do a look for NYE... so I started late not thinking how long it would take me... as soon as I was done, we were off... took us 5 minutes to get there, we literally ran to the house so we can make it to the countdown... hahaha... story of my life.. almost-always late....
anyhoo... here is the look that I did on 12/31/10... last look of 2010 & first look of 2011...

the palette I used here was the Snow Sprite palette from the Wet n Wild ColorIcon Holiday LE palettes... the only one I got out of the 4 palettes they came out with... I dunno if I ever told you the story, but when it came out, I kept goin back to our local Walgreens (mind you we have two)... I probably went there maybe more than 5 times to check... yes, I'm that persistent! I never found them until I finally gave up.... I assumed my Walgreens is just the worst one in the entire US.... but then I went back maybe a couple of weeks before Christmas & decided to ask the sales associate, who directed me to the seasonal shelf.... "what seasonal shelf?!?" there were only two palettes left, and they were both Snow Sprite!!!! they've had it all this time, I just never knew where they were at!!!!! now WHY DID I NOT THINK ABOUT ASKING FOR HELP BEFOREHAND????? believe me, I kicked my self a hundred times for that!
but yeah, so I decided to grab both palettes... the one that I like the least out of the four!!! =( I wanted to get the Night Elf so bad, so if anyone is interested in doing a swap - my Snow Sprite to your Night Elf.... lemme know! =) pretty please! LOL... I'm desperate...
so here is the one that I got + swatches....
top row L, top row R, 2nd row L, 2nd row R, bottom row L, bottom row R
again, if anybody wants to swap my Snow Sprite with a Night Elf, let me know.... thanks! =)
