Listen. Throughout college I worked at all of the best opening price point retailers- think Forever 21, DSW, H&M. Weekend drinks were typically paid for thanks to the aggressive “frat daddy’s” at the bars, but mama still had to pay for her weekend wardrobe somehow. Therefore, clocking hours at the local mall was a must. Not only did I get a sweet discount on my bodycon dresses (a whopping 10%, why fucking bother?), but I was also able to shop the new receipts first. A college girl’s dream come true. Anyways, I desperately needed my $40 paycheck to go far and I kept getting frustrated at the fact that I was ultimately throwing my money away on these “bargain” products. I mean, raise your hand if you’ve bought something at one of these places to only have it last one or two wears? True defeat. Fortunately, after some time, I learned to shop smart and I was no longer getting burned on my stacks of paper (albeit minuscule).
Me again! Did you miss me? I’m sure you didn’t, but I’m back anyways. Let’s catch up.
Seriously, I don’t know what has gotten into me but I’ve been obsessing over anything and everything beauty as of late. I feel like being in front of the camera for the blog has me really questioning wtf I’m doing with my hair, skin and makeup. My current downtime consists of standing in front of my bathroom mirror, over analyzing everything, and watching beauty and makeup tutorials on YouTube. I know “get a life”, right? I’m right there with you, but I’ve been glued to it all. I’d love to know your favorite people to watch on YouTube for hair and makeup tutorials. Please feel free to leave your suggestions below. Really. I’d love you for it.
