Hey, all. πŸ™‚ Yesterday, I didn’t leave the house once. I stayed up late Sunday night, looking for a Christmas-themed novel that wasn’t on hold on Overdrive. Seems like all of the ones I’m interested in already are. I checked the Kindle Unlimited catalog and found With Love at Christmas by Carole Matthews but, was ready for bed by the time I downloaded it.

Boyfriend woke up earlier than I did and went off to play the XBOX while I slept in for a bit. I didn’t get up until nearly 4 PM. I took a shower right when I woke up and then, we played a little Saint’s Row together before boyfriend started on dinner.

While he was cookin’ up a storm, I played Costume Quest 2. πŸ™‚

We watched an episode of Star while we ate and then, I wrote my blog post. Once it was all edited and published, I watched another episode and a half of Star.

I removed my old nail polish and painted them all with a top coat. I’ve yet to file them and color them. I haven’t decided what color I’m doing yet… I wish I had more options. πŸ˜›

After the top coat dried, boyfriend and I played some more Saint’s Row together. I had a bit of a headache so we went into bed kinda early (for us) at around 2 AM. I did start reading a little of With Love at Christmas before I fell asleep though. It’s easy and fun so far.

Today, we both woke up around the same time at like 2 PM. I got up right away for a shower while boyfriend did the dishes and went to fill up our water jugs. Then, we played a little XBOX together until he started on making dinner. I got to play my Costume Quest 2 game again. πŸ˜€ During dinner, we finished the episode of Star that we left off on.

We had to go to the dispensary and the smoke shop, so we also stopped at Starbucks… since we passed it anyways. πŸ˜‰ We both got frappucinos; boyfriend chose the Vanilla Bean Creme and I got the Chestnut Praline again even though I really wanna try a couple of the other new flavors. Has anyone tried the Juniper latte yet?!

When we got home, I hopped onto here! After I publish this entry, I’m going to go play with some makeup!! BUT FIRST, I’m going to do a mass makeup throwaway/cleanout! I’m gonna have a really small collection after tonight (hopefully)… just so I can build it up again with better and newer stuff. πŸ˜‰

  1. I’ve read a couple of books by Carole Matthews and I like her writing style and wit. Makeup declutters are so fun, especially when you’re cutthroat and actually get rid of stuff. I tried to have a lipstick declutter last weekend and went from 50 to 44… it’s a start lol!

    1. Ooh! This is my first ever Carole Matthews and I’m really liking her writing style, too! I’ve only read a few chapters and have giggled out loud already. πŸ˜€ Which books of hers have you read??

      Okay, I actually just got rid of a TON of stuff but, I kept every single one of my lipsticks, liners, and glosses… they’re too pretty and way too hard to throw away, I feel ya!! Lol.

      1. I’ve read Let’s Meet On Platform 8 and A Cottage By the Sea. I’ve also got The Cake Shop In the Garden which I intend to read after I finish my current book.

        I don’t know what it is about lipsticks, but they’re my weakness!

  2. Juniper latte?? Say whaaaa? I have a feeling these flavours haven’t made their way into the UK yet, cuz even that chestnut thing is something i’ve never seen before.

    1. I have been into Starbucks a few times since they introduced their winter drinks but, this was the first time I saw the Juniper flavor. It sounds so interesting! I think we may all have different flavors in different countries! & I love that you are willing to try all the weird shit!!! I always wanna try it all, too! ❀ ❀

  3. What nail polish brand do you normally use? I used to be an Essie girl but just got the christmas collection from a brand called Emma (who I had never heard of before) and I am obsessed with the colors and how easy it is to paint with them if you’re looking for new options πŸ™‚

  4. I just did a massive clean out too!!! It is the best feeling. I put everything up on Poshmark- have you tried it? Alsoooo I tried using my OPI nailpolish again- and I hated it. I think I remember you saying you tried it and wasn’t a fan… I don’t know how I used this stuff for so many years?! It takes forever to dry and chips easily. I am going back to Zoya! Have you tried that brand? xo

    1. It was the best feeling ever but I can’t help but feel like I should have thrown even more away!

      I have heard a ton about Poshmark but it seems like a website I’m too lazy to use lol. I just threw everything straight into the trash!

      Yeah, OPI is the worst!! Chips sooo quickly and never dries. I have one bottle of Zoya (the nude color I have on in my Boxycharm post photos) and I LOVE it!! It lasts forever and is so pigmented! β™‘

  5. I so wish I had chill days like yours lol. My days are chaotic as fuck with emotions like a rollercoaster haha
    So fun you guys are getting good use out of your Xbox though. I haven’t played video games in a long time and I honestly kind of miss it

    1. Aww, well to be fair, you do have a little one to take care of whereas I just worry about myself all the time. πŸ˜› & I’m really enjoying playing games again. We haven’t had a console for awhile because our fat cat sat on our old PS3 too many times LOL.

  6. I love the vanilla bean creme frappe! It’s just like a vanilla milkshake haha. I don’t get it that often though because I guess it’s hard for me to choose something that’s not coffee lol. XD I love doing mass declutterings! I hope you had fun. πŸ™‚

    1. Oh!! Add espresso shots into your vanilla bean creme!! ❀ That's what boyfriend & I do when we order it & I think it tastes even better that way. It really is like a dairy-free milkshake so I love it for dessert. πŸ™‚
