Things I Love About the 90’s

398

I was born in the late 80’s, but I’m a straight up 90’s kid. My earliest memories are when I was 3 years old (which I turned in late 1991), so I have plenty of memories from this truly awesome decade. If I had to pick one decade that is my absolutely favorite, it is most definitely the 90’s. Here is a list of some of my favorite things about the 90’s.

BH Cosmetics: Bashful Browns Lip Set

392

This is a follow up to my recent BH Cosmetics Haul post. As I stated, I wanted to go a little more in depth about the Bashful Browns lip set that I got. If browns aren’t your thing, they also have sets of pinks, reds, and purples. The sets are only $14.99, which amounts to about $3 per lip cream. That’s a great deal.

The set comes with five lip colors in a variety of formula’s from matte to glossy. Here is what is included:

  • Color Lock lipstick in shade Devotion
  • Metallic liquid lipstick in shade Amber
  • Liquid lipstick in shade Serena
  • Liquid lipstick in shade Clara
  • Luxe Lacquer gloss in shade Colombian Coffee

It’s My Birthday

390

It almost seems a little surreal right now. For some reason it doesn’t seem like my birthday. I remember a time when I never wanted to live past 27 years old. Now I’ve made it through two more birthday’s. I am 29. I still can’t believe I’m so close to 30. I know everyone says that your 30’s are your best years yet, but I have a terrible fear of aging. I know I can’t be young and beautiful forever, and there’s a lot more to life than physical appearance. At least I still have one year of my 20’s left, although I know it will fly by super fast. Today is also bittersweet because it’s my kitty Chloe’s birthday as well. She would have been 17 years old. She almost made it. I think it’s amazing that we shared the same birthday. I wish she was still here with me.

Cozy Weekend In

The company I work for decided to switch our holiday’s. We’ve always had Black Friday off in the past, but they took that holiday away from us and gave us Veteran’s Day instead. I’m not too happy about that because I’ve always done the majority of my Christmas shopping on Black Friday, and now I will have to be at work the entire day. Not only that, but it takes away our four day weekend too. We would always have Thanksgiving and Black Friday off, and then Saturday and Sunday followed. Now we’ll just have Thanksgiving off, have to go back to work Friday, and then have the typical two-day weekend. I would also always indulge in some alcoholic beverages on Thanksgiving night, but now I will be unable to do so since I will have to wake up and go to work the next day. The only good thing about having Veteran’s Day off instead is that I already put in for vacation for this coming week, so I just got an extra day tacked on to it.

So with that said, this post is going to be about my cozy three-day weekend spent in my house. On Friday, I wanted to have a little relaxing pamper session. I drew some hot bath water and applied one of my favorite face masks (as mentioned in this post).

BH Cosmetics Haul

362

I’ve bought several products from BH Cosmetics over the last few months, and I really like what I’ve tried so far. I was initially on the hunt for some new makeup brushes and I thought I would check to see what they had to offer. I ended up buying quite a few other things. I got their Galaxy Chic palette over the summer, which I love, so I knew I had to have the Solar Flare palette as soon as I saw it. It’s gorgeous! They also have a cool Supernova palette, but I opted not to get that one for now. For only $3 more, I could get the Rose Quartz brush set with the Solar Flare palette, so that’s what I decided to do. I haven’t tried them yet, but they feel soft.

Sunday Meal + Embarrassing Tales from the Kitchen

360

At least one or two Sunday’s per month, my mom will cook a meal for us. She’s actually not that big on cooking, and I do not know how to cook at all, so I do appreciate these home cooked meals. We mostly just survive on takeout and frozen meals. I know, it’s terrible. I wish I could learn to cook, but I just feel it’s not for me. I love eating good food, but preparing it is another story.

Hell, there have been times when I couldn’t even properly cook food in the microwave. Does anybody remember Ragu Express? I once tried to make that and stuck the bowl of noodles in the microwave without putting water in first. Then I realized the noodles were burning. If that isn’t bad enough, wait until you hear this. I once had a friend over and we were going to watch a movie. I put some popcorn in the microwave, and actually walked out of the room without paying attention to it. When the timer went off off, we walked into the kitchen to find smoke pouring out of the microwave. I opened the bag, and the popcorn was nothing more than black mush. There was this terrible burnt smell in the house now. My mom was in the shower during all of this, but as soon as she got out she could smell it. She started yelling at me, and we had to open the door and windows to get the smoke and smell out. I have since mastered the art of microwaving popcorn, however.

My Sweet Angel, Chloe 2000-2017

359

On Halloween, my precious kitty Chloe took her last breath. It was one of the hardest days of my life so far. Just last week I was driving in my car and I was thinking about how she was getting older. I started to cry because I thought I might only have a year left with her, at the most. Little did I know that I would only have a week.

It all started on Sunday evening when Chloe did not want to eat for some reason. I found it odd, but I just figured maybe she didn’t feel good and wasn’t hungry. I also noticed that while she was trying to clean herself, she just completely fell over onto her side.
