Got my hurr did :o)

Hello lovies!

So today I got my hair highlighted & lowlighted! I haven't had my hair done since November... gasp. I know, I know, I'm terrible with maintance but I'm a natural blonde so I can get away with it for awhile. I usually wait a really long time which is so bad, haha. My re-growth bugged me so I went and had my hair done. I adore my hairdresser, she does really great work and she always understands what I'm trying to say even when I don't. Anywho, this is a bit darker for me.. I'm usually a very light blonde and lately I've been craving a medium toned blonde instead so that's what I went with today. I'll probably add a bit of thinner highlights once the summer comes and then leave my hair alone for a while. I included pics at the very bottom of me being an uber blonde. I want to be that weight again, aurgh.

So yeah, new hurrr pics!

This is a lot darker for me. My ends used to be so blonde and she pulled a darker lowlight through. I like it though.

And for good measure, here's a picture of my "bombshell blonde" as so many people called it.

I don't know if any of you read The House of Night Series... but if not... YOU NEED TO!!!!!!!!!!!!
Today Burned came out!
It's the 7th book in the series and I'm about to go out and grab mine now :o)
(I called a few days ago and had it put aside.. such a dork)
I also had the 7th (or 8th.. I think the 7th though) book of The Vampire Diaries put aside. It's the 2nd of The Returned grouping. If you've seen the show and hated it, just take my word and read the books because they are WAY better. I can't even tell you how much better they are.. just take my word.
So yes, today is going to be a great day of reading for me!
I also have a haul I have to update.
Have a great day all!

YSL Sensual Silk

I just wanted to show you all some swatches of the YSL Rouge Volupte L/S in #2. I haven't properly worn this yet so I can't necessarily do a review but I figured I'd show you some swatches.

This was in our bedroom with lowlighting

This is in the bathroom with the lights on and right above my hand.
A bit blurry but you get the idea I think.

Kinda dark, in the room without a flash.

In the bathroom with a flash.

And then just pictures of us after a longggg day. The lipstick is a really pretty shade and lookie lookie, my Zachie baby!

I'll try to put up better hand swatches when I get a chance!

AC Haul

So last night we went and did a little shopping in AC!
It was really nice but the mall's hours online were wrong - ugh. It actually closed 2 hours earlier than it said online, so once Zach and I got done with our workshop, we went right to his sister's and then ran there.
I didn't want to spend tons of money so I'm quite proud of myself, haha. So here's what I bought!

First we went to Lush.

Holy jeebus... there was so much stuff there...
It was quite overwhelming, hah.

I had a really hard time picking between things for whatever reason so I ended up with:

I got the cream candy bubble bar, 2 Dreamtime Bathmelts which are going to my mama dukes as a part of her Mother Day's stuff, a piece of the Godmother Soap, and the Bubblegum Lip Scrub.

The only thing I'm not sure I'm in love with is the Bubblegum Lip Scrub. The only reason I'm saying this is because when you smell it in the jar it's like wooooah but when you put it on it's not overwhelming at all. I really wanted the Mint one but it smelt too much like a thin mint cookie for my liking. All of that came to like $40 bucks so not bad! Next time, I'm most def getting the Blondie Shampoo & the Mmm Marshmallow bathmelt thing.

Next I went to the Cos Bar which carries all high-end cosmetics. Such a total tease to say the least, haha. I do not have the mula for that stuff but as I said in my post the other day there was a few things I wanted. I definitely wanted Ondine from NARS but they didn't have it in and Mekong reminded me of the dark color in my Pleasures of Paris palette so I decided it was a no no. In the end I went with the YSL lipstick.

I caved and bought the YSL Rough Volupte in #2 (Sensual Silk).
It's a gorg pinky-nude. I'm thinking it may be a bit too light for me right now but once summer comes and I get a teensy bit of color I think it will look good.
The lipstick was a hefty $36 dollars and change.

I'm going to hopefully NOT be shopping anymore for the next few weeks and that way I won't feel so bad about spending all that money on a lipstick. The packaging is just so pretty damnit, hahaha. We also did a bit of gambling and ate a HUGE meal that was so freaking yummy. Today we have one more workshop and then we're driving home. Merrr.

Broadway Workshop

Just a quick update!!!
I'm staying down near Atlantic City for the weekend for a Broadway workshop and Zach's sister lives like... 10 minutes from Caesar's Pier which has tons of stores and one of them is.... *drum roll please*
I'm wicked excited to finally go to one of their stores. I've compiled a want list already (I'm such a dork hahaha) & I'm so pumped to go and pick through everything.
SO excited.
They also have a MAC, Betsey Johnson, and a Cos Bar which has NARS, YSL, etc.
I don't want to spend tons of money but I am going to enjoy my first trip to AC !!!
Maybe I'll gamble too lol..
BTW, sorry for not posting recently. Getting ready for this workshop has taken a bit more time than I expected. I've had a lot to purchase and find, etc. But maybe I'll do a little haul post tomorrow.
My current "wants" list:
Ondine & Mekong
Rouge Volupte Sensual Silk (#2)
^ I've heard so many fab things about this I WANT IT SO BAD!
It's pretty hefty.. $31 dollars for a lipstick is a bit ridic so we shall see about this one.
I do have a bit extra money right now but we'll see.
&&& my lush list is huge so I shall not blabber about that.
I really want to get my mom a few things for Mom's Day as well!
Hope you're all doing well and I shall update tomorrow
