I has a busy. Halp? Sascha goes home in the morning. It doesn’t seem like it’s been that long. :( I wish we could have done more, gotten more for him. I only got him one book. But between my health, doctor, chiropractor and now acupuncture visits, not enough money, hospital visits, etc, things just didn’t go the way I wanted them to. That’s okay. Next year we shall hopefully have money saved up, hopefully my health will be better(oh please dear universe, please), hopefully my mom will be doing better, hopefully things will just be better. I already miss him and he’s not gone yet. Poop. I keep telling myself it’ll be okay, but I already want to cry. I need to gather up his clothes clean the dirty ones and pack up his suitcase. Homemade tacos and strawberry cupcakes with strawberry puree as topping for dinner. Sascha’s request. Bleh. I’m already teary-eyed just typing this. HALP. It’ll only be a year, it’ll only be a year, then he’ll be home for the summer again, then only one more year and he’ll be home. Boy I love him.

Swatches: Facebomb Cosmetics Spring Purple, Spring Yellow, Carolyn, Derby Girl, Vivaldi & Boon Docks

Sooo not to long ago, okay it was the other month I won a contest that Facebomb Cosmetics held on their facebook page. I had NO idea I won as I don’t keep up with facebook that much. A friend on twitter told me they needed my address because I won a contest. To be honest I hadn’t even remembered I entered. haha Anyways. Not too long after I gave them my address I received some goodies! I received 6 full size 5g jars and a sample. My shadows came with a business card and a list of ingredients.

I received full size jars of Spring Purple, Spring Yellow, Carolyn, Derby Girl, Vivaldi and Boon Docks and a sample of Great Fairy’s Tears. Great Fairy’s Tears happens to be my favourite of the bunch! Love it. It’s so pretty and well faerie like. :d I also like Derby Girl(shocker, I know), Spring Purple and Spring Yellow a lot. Definitely going to be picking up a jar of Great Fairy’s Tears and there are other shadows in their Etsy shop I’d like to get my hands on. I will say if you aren’t a fan of glitter this isn’t the company for you. :) Each shadow has a pretty explosion of glitter. I know some people are sensitive to glitter around their eyes.

I think my only issue which is mostly just a pet peeve is that I really, really encourage and prefer ingredient information on the jars. I’m a little paranoid and prefer having the ingredient information on the jars because I’m really forgetful and often times misplace ingredient sheets. If I have a reaction to a shadow, I want to be able to grab the jar and see what’s in it. So there, that’s my pet peeve. xd Prease put ingredients on the jars? The only other issues was that Derby Girl leaked a little inside, and I can’t figure out how because the sifter seal seemed completely sealed, soo I don’t know. It wasn’t that big of a deal either, nothing spilled outside of the jar. So yeah. Onto the swatches!

If you like this post do me a favor and like it up there on the top right! :UP:

So my mom ended up having a heart attack a few nights ago, right now I’m not even sure what night it was? She called me at about 4am and asked me to come down. I knew exactly why. She’d been having heart trouble for about 5 hours and hadn’t told me. I went down and ended up calling her friends to come take her to the hospital. It had been a long sore day and I took an extra gabapentin around 2am after I picked Kai up from work. So I wasn’t able to drive. They got there around 530am? They took her immediately to the hospital where they apparently thought her situation was very bad and transported her via ambulance to Providence in Portland. There she found out she had a blood clot in her heart and the left ventricle was severely damaged from the heart attack. They had her on oxygen and she was hooked up with a bajillion wires when we went to visit her. She seemed to be okay and doing better. They ended up keeping her until today. She refused the chest stint and dye test they wanted to do, so they put her on medications instead. I have to go pick up 5 for her tomorrow.

After my mom was checked out she had to stay in the hallway for almost 2 hours waiting for a wheel chair. Really? Are you serious? She flagged down 3 different people and finally the 3rd person went and brought her back a wheel chair so she could leave. Ugh. We waited so long outside the hospital I was afraid they were going to ask us to leave. Thankfully all worked out and she’s home now. The ride home exhausted her, so she’s still pretty done in and has been resting since she got home. Hopefully between the medications and care from her doctor things will be alright. Hopefully.

On a side note I found the most amazing shoes today and no they aren’t flip flops. I know it’s a shocker, I found shoes that aren’t uggs or flip flops. Shhhh. BUT THEY ARE AMAZING! And I need them, like really neeeed them. Behold! Going Batty Maryjane Flats! Aren’t they amazing! Who wants to loan me $35 plus shipping so I can get them?! xd Also on another note. Kai has decided we are somehow going to save up $1000 by Thanksgiving to go visit his family. Good luck to us. I’m not sure how or if we can successfully do it. But he really, really, really wants to. So that means things are going to be exceptionally way more tight around here. No buying frivalous things like rec specs sports goggles(I kid) or beautiful going batty maryjane flats! :( I r sad. I will find a way to get those shoes though! If it kills me! And it probably will, and its name will probably be Kai. X.X For now, beautiful, beautiful shoes are on my amazon wishlist. I love you beautiful batty shoes!
