I really love you blogger, but I'm thinking about creating a tumblr instead.

I'll let you know soon.
Love, Emma. (:

Things I am currently enjoying.

Jason Ellis.
I've had Sirius radio in my car since I bought it over a year ago. I'd always skip over it when I was driving home because I really don't like talk radio. This guy is hilarious, and he makes me laugh every ride home now.

Cute Valentines gifts.
Though I don't have one this year, I'm still a sucker.

Betsey Johnson Jewelry.
Mainly the necklaces, and some rings.

Modern styled rooms.
I just love it.

Natalie Dee Comics.
They're just so cute and funny. :x

That's all for now. (:

Weekend Recap.

So I've got to do this kind of quick because I want to get a good nights rest tonight. It's been an interesting weekend though.

Friday, I called off sick because this cold just hasn't let up. I laid around all day. I felt better around the evening, I went to redbox and rented Inglorious Basterds, HP6, and Public Enemies. I watched Inglorious Basterds with mom and started to watch HP6, but I got too tired.

Saturday, I woke up feeling a little crappy but I got a bath and started getting ready. I took my little cousin Skylar to Build A Bear just for fun. I made a teddy for her baby sister Kayley, and she made a Snow Leopard for herself. They were so cute. After I took her home, I hung out with her and my cousins for a bit, then went home. Started to watch HP6, but I just couldn't keep my attention on it, same with Public Enemies. I took them both back, since it was time anyways, and rented The Hangover. I thought it was alright. Not as good as everyone hyped it up to be though.

Sunday, I woke up feeling like death. Got to moving and felt a little better. Cleaned all the dirty clothes off the floor and played on the computer for a little bit. I then got ready for Amanda and I's rescheduled dinner at Applebee's, since I was too sick friday. I went to the store and got a few things beforehand like groceries,

Benadryl D, because I hope this will make my watery eyes go away.

A new hairdryer. I've been using a travel dryer for the past year.

Annnd some Bare Minerals matte foundation. : D

Sorry so short, I'm hoping to rid myself of this cold by tomorrow morning, gotta catch up on my rest.
Hope you all had a good weekend!

The Universe.

Every Monday through Friday I get "Notes From The Universe" like this one:

The BIG THING, Emma, rarely happens when you ask for it, nor does it typically come from who or where you expect. It usually comes a bit later, from someone you didn't even know when you first asked, as a result of some weird turn of events that were impossible to foresee.

So, chill. Be patient. Enjoy the moment. And let your friends, employers, and partners off the hook. Besides, they're going to have enough to deal with when the BIG THING does arrive, if you know what I mean.

Won't be long,
The Universe

They're just little inspirational notes that are sent to your e-mail on the days you specify. Amazingly on the days I really need to hear something, it's like they know what I'm thinking and it really does make me feel better about certain situations.

Mario Badescu Skin Care.

Today I received samples in the mail from Mario Badescu. I've been having a lot of breakouts lately, and I felt like it was time to try something new. I've used proactiv, and it worked a little while, and I've tried some over the counter products that have worked for a little while as well, then I get major breakouts again.

In the mail I got free samples of the following things:
I know the bottles are small, but they really do go a long way for free samples. The full size bottles range in prices from $18 to about $30 I believe, but they really will last you a long time.

  • Enzyme Cleansing Gel.
  • Special Cucumber lotion
  • Hyaluronic Eye Cream
  • Drying Mask
  • Collagen Moisturizer
  • Drying Cream
This is what my face looks like today and I'll update my progress in a week.

Ugh, can't believe I'm posting that.

If you want your own free samples, click here.
When you finish the questionnaire, they will ask you to give them your email. In the email you receive, there will be a link at the bottom of the page to receive free samples for the products you need. You fill out your information then they send you the samples. It's pretty simple. I'd just like to add I filled out the questionnaire a few days before Christmas and just received it now, so you should be prepared to wait a bit.

Why can't the weekends be five days long and work days be two?

It's the end of the weekend already and for once I'm actually wishing it was still the weekend. A lot of times I really just don't care because I never really do anything. I actually went out with some Kohl's girls last night as well as taking Trista out for the first time since she's been 21, pretty much. Even though I don't work there anymore it's still nice to spend some time with them. (: I'll post some pictures too.

A weird thing happened to me though while I was getting ready. I hate to admit this but ever since I started dying my hair darker, my eyebrows never matched. I'll never dye them and I really didn't notice it till it was pointed out, but anyways I started having to color them in. Well I colored them in like I normally did, and for some reason in pictures they look GRAY! Has this ever happened to you? Another thing it may have been is that I went spray tanning that same day. Who knows, I just thought it was weird it looked fine in the mirror and on camera it got all weird.

Enough rambling, picture time!
Ps. Starting weight watchers soon. : D

See what I mean! Trista and I.

The girls, minus Jackie, because she left early, and Brittany too.

The girls, minus Shannon but plus Brittany.

Up and down, and up and down.

I know I really don't have many followers, but I'd just like to apologize for not updating in a while. It hasn't even really been hectic, I've just not been able to think of just one thing to blog about.

Work has been work, usual drama and we've been getting done early, which is nice. Got to actually leave early because of the weather yesterday and today. I hope it stops snowing tonight so that I can go tanning tomorrow morning. I'm going out tomorrow night and I'm tired of being super pale, so I'm spray tanning. I did it for Halloween and it looked pretty good, I think. That'll put off me buying an actual package for a little while longer. And I have a coupon for this time. SCORE!

Unfortunately, I have to cut this entry short because I'm about to fall asleep, and I'm going to have way better ones for you tomorrow. (:

10 things I hope to accomplish in the new year.

With the new year finally here, I've comprised a list.

1. Save at least $3,000 by the end of July 2o1o, or $5,500 by the end of the year, to have enough money to buy furniture to move out, as well as money for rent and security deposits.

2. Like above, move out of my parents house. Hopefully find a roommate so that rent isn't as expensive. Though living by myself would be a lot nicer.

3. Fall in love.

4. Forgive AND Forget. It seems as though I follow either one of the two or neither and dwell. I need to either get over it or get rid of the things that are causing me to dwell on things.

5. Travel to AT LEAST five more states. Not just travelling through, actually visit. Sight see and that kind of stuff.

6. Loose weight. I know it's cliche, but it's something I've been working at and I'd just like to be able to see some more results.

7. Get more tattoos. I have so many ideas in my head. Not to mention that I still have a halfway finished piece on my back. I could fill up the whole thing if I had the money.

8. Pay off both of my credit cards. I got a little swipe crazy when I first got them, and now I realize the cociquenses of doing so and how I have to be more careful with things.

9. Keep a better track of my money in the first place.

10. Make at least 5 new friends. (:
