I just took a sip of this strawberry flavored Capri Sun Roarin’ Waters juice pouch and I hated it, yuck!
On Thursday, after I posted my journal entry, I wrote and scheduled two unboxings. The first one came out already (Influenster’s Maybelline Shine Compulsion Voxbox) and the second one will be published on Tuesday morning at 9am PST (May’s Play! by Sephora). Later that night I used my bath bomb that I had bought from Walmart.
Oh! I forgot to tell you guys about the yoga mat that I also bought from Walmart the other day. It was less than $8, I’ve used it twice already and am loving it. Working out is so much easier on a mat instead of a slippery blanket.
The new coffee machine we bought is BROKEN. It leaks water so we have to exchange it, super luckily, I found the receipt nice and neat in my purse which is the RAREST thing ever, haha. I painted my nails yesterday with the new matte nail polish, too.
It was extremely difficult. The formula is WAY too sticky. It dries fast, probably even too fast, and it really does leave a matte look… unless you go over it with a shiny top coat like I did. So, I do not recommend Color Club’s matte lacquers but def their holographic ones. I’ve never tried a normal one, lol.
Yesterday, boyfriend was at work until 9p. I woke up pretty late… around 3p. I had started A Child Called “It” before bed Thursday night and finished it by 5p. I took a shower, did my fitness routine, then put together a chopped salad kit by Taylor’s Farms called Maple Bourbon Bacon. The dressing was super sweet but, I still ate it all. I added some turkey meat from our leftovers, too.
I worked on my Monthly Currentlys… post for a really long time last night. I didn’t expect it to take so long but, I had to stop in the middle of it to do my makeup. It was already nearly midnight when I decided I should paint my nails. I thought it was going to be as easy as the last nail polish I applied but, IT WASN’T. It took FOREVER and I had to re-do two of ’em because I messed ’em up before they even dried. I didn’t get to work until a little past 1a. It wasn’t super packed but, there was a good amount of clients and definitely enough dancers there. I left around 4a, I was lucky and had a really good night. I told all my clients “I don’t drink” when they offered me one and they respected my decision?! I was honestly so surprised but, very very grateful. I hope I don’t get overheard by one of the club employees because you can totally get in trouble for declining drinks. I’ve been really feeling loads better, mentally and physically, now that I haven’t drank for a whole week. I might just quit drinking at work altogether. When the month is up, I’ll just allow myself some cocktails during dinner dates with boyfriend maybe?
Today, I woke up around 2p. For my collaboration with Rossy and Tialla, we’re doing a “Day in the Life” post that will be going up on Monday morning. I thought it would be more fun to show you guys what I do on a work day so I started that post this morning and have been setting my alarm to remember to keep it going for the rest of the night.
I did a little reading on my reader and then, I walked to Albertson’s to grab me something to eat since we’ve got nothing in our fridge right now.
When I came home, I had to cool down a bit before I took a shower so I spent some time playing with my cats and finishing up the posts on my reader. When I was done with the shower, I did my usual fitness routine. It seemed harder for me today, though. I was sweating more than normal…
After my workout, I put together my dinner. I bought sushi and an Asian chicken salad.
I started an episode of The Carrie Diaries while I was eating and finished it before I started this journal entry. I’m sad I only have like 2 or 3 more episodes left! Everyone in the show is so cute and I love them all. I will miss watching it but, I’m excited to start a new show, too. I think I’ll go with Doctor Foster per the wonderful Dom’s recommendation to me. It sounds SUPER interesting.
I haven’t started a new book yet but, I think I’ll start reading The Vanishing Year then Nice Try, Jane Sinner after that one. Maybe tonight or tomorrow.
Tomorrow, I made reservations for me and boyfriend to go to this highly-rated, yet not stupidly expensive, southern restaurant called Yardbird. It’s in the Venetian. Boyfriend goes as far as saying that he thinks it’s the #1 most beautiful casino in Vegas. It’s hard for me to decide though… I like The Wynn and the Cosmopolitan a lot, too (interior wise). Boyfriend will have to work during the day but, he’ll def be home on time for our 7:30p reservation. I was trying to make us one for 7:00p but, it was already taken. 😦 All of the slots from 6-7p were already gone.
Boyfriend requested the day before, the day of, and the day after my birthday off from work. His work was really generous and gave him an extra 2 days off, too!! YAY!! ❤ 😀 We were thinkin’ bout going on a vacation but, there’s no one I trust with my cats and to enter in and out of my home. I also can’t decide if we’d have more fun in Portland, OR or New Orleans, LA. Anyways, I’m really not prepared for a vacation, either, my head is all out of sorts and I’m trying to maintain a schedule and routine. Plus, the no drinking thing. I’m proud of myself so far and I don’t wanna ruin my mojo and get the after-vacay blues. We’re gonna just do as many fun things here in Vegas as we can throughout the 5 days!
Have you ever hired a person off Care.com? I was looking at their website and it seems legit but, at the same time still sketchy. I hate strangers in my home! Even the maintenance man. I don’t know why; I truly have nothing to hide, especially since weed is legal here, lol… but I just do NOT like it. And I’m sure my fur babies don’t, either.
Nooow, I’ll prob browse the web for a bit then, I’ll start my makeup for work.
