Weekend Tales



Sorry about the lack of updates this past week almost (yikes!) I was tired of seeing the Balloonancy MAC girl myself, lol. This past weekend was all about Balloonancy and a long awaited reunion in NYC with my Semester at Sea alumni.


I stalked stores and waited to see the products in person. Finally, I made it to the Georgetown location where I was able to test everything with ease. I borrowed a couple of brushes and went to work experimenting. The location has horrible lighting, but I did the best I could. I knew I wanted to get some fab colors, for a special look to be 'sexy in the city.'


I got my loot, boarded my Chinatown bus and headed to the big city. I still needed something to wear, but with friends help, I would take care of that problem. Nothing like a little shopping in the city. I really wanted to visit the Times Square Sephora, but didn't have the opportunity. However, I was able to visit the MAC store on 125th (the cross street, I have no idea.) I love the little themes that the MA's come up with. In this store, the girls had cheetah prints around their eyes... so cute! I got fab help from a chica and walked out with my new fave blush of the moment, Harmony- muted rose-beige brown- a matte powder that would not grab your attention sitting on the rack, very underrated. (Next up: Blunt) I'm moving away from products with shimmer, because I like to customize my shimmer with highlighting powders... Will I ever get through my huge stash of shimmery products???
This was my weekend to test the waters with false lashes. I felt so girly and sexy with them on! I tried the Revlon Fantasy Lengths Maximum Wear Self-Adhesive 'Flirty' Eyelashes in an attempt to cut down the stress and mess with glue. With a little patience, I got them in place. Voila! I will be trying these more often =) I had my nails coated in the Vin Goth polish.. I like!
Great times, great people... I got to see some people I haven't seen in about five years, and other great friends where after 2-3 years, we haven't missed a beat. I had a fantastic time and can't wait to do it again.
More tales (with pictures!) to come!

Please...give your big sister, "Divalicious", credit for the lash idea. Just joking...I'm so glad you decided to delve into the world of lashes. It's a great finish to any look :-)
Smooches!

yay! i do credit you, the one who is never afraid to try a trick of the trade! thanks for reading yummy. i'll have pics up soon from my trip. what lashes do you use? any tips?

Antoinette said...

I was just messing with you. I use all kinds of lashes....even the ones from the beauty supply store, (as long as they look natural) but I always use Duo glue. I don't use the glue that comes with the lashes. If I'm not near a beauty supply store, then I will sometimes spend the 10 bucks on a pair of 7s from Mac. I'm looking forward to your pics. Will you please send me the ones that we took on Sunday. Thanks babe!

Antoinette said...

I must admit, the glue that normally comes with "Stick and Wear them" lashes smells god aweful. Simply awful. I like the Self-Adhesive but I will admit they are still hard as hell to place... lol
