I have all kinds of excuses why I haven't been bloggin but I'm not about to start enumerating them now coz obviously, no matter what excuse you have, no matter how busy you are, if you wanna blog, you're GOHNNA blog! but what I had was far more serious than just excuses, I was in a funk!! & boy I could not get out of it!!!

but all it took was one peek at the blog world & it brought me back... one peek reminded me of what I love doing... your awesome comments reminded me that I have readers who love visiting my blog, so I forced my self to snap out of it & get to bloggin again!!

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation & Super Stay Makeup

I got shades 220 & Classic Beige... I am a NC30 shade in MAC Studio Fix Fluid & according to reviews I've seen on these 2 products, these are the two shades that would match NC30... 

my very first ever...

Sinful Colors nail polishes 

in Soul Mate & You Just Wait 
everyone's ravin about this brand of nail polish, so for $1.99 I thought I'd try it & see what the big fuss is all about...

in Penny Arcade 

it's a gorgeus gold-coppery color... swatched here over top MAC Painterly Paintpot
