What I'm Loving #3

favorites what i'm loving the beauty milk
I know it seems like I fell off the face of the Earth and that's because I did. I haven't touched Twitter, Instagram or my blog in a week. I became very ill this week and have spent several agonizing days in bed. I still feel sick but luckily I've regained some strength. I can now actually piece together coherent sentences and walk to the kitchen to get food. Netflix has become a really good companion but I'm tired of laying around and want to be productive again. So why not come back with a positive post? Here's a few favorites / things I'm loving / things that make me happy...

favorites what i'm loving the beauty milk
1. Sleek Ultra Matt V2 Palette
Right before getting ill, I was using the Sleek Matte Palette that Latasha kindly sent me. After creating several looks with it my verdict is that it's really good. Why aren't all affordable eyeshadows like Sleek's? A review is coming in the (hopefully) near future.

2. L'Oreal Freebies
I had previously won a local contest for L'Oreal and the competition's ad came out this month. It was totally bizarre and exciting to see myself in a magazine. And although I don't like how the picture turned out (as I look nothing like myself and feel they styled my hair in a very "outdated" way), it was a great experience. They also gave me a basket of assorted L'Oreal products (freebies, yay!)

3. Graduation
The most exciting thing about this month was traveling to Chicago and attending my boyfriend's graduation. And even though I only got to see him for 3 days (which went by in a blur), they were the best days I could ever ask for. I was left with many sweet memories. ♥

I don't think I've ever taken such a long break from blogging before. It's been a week and I definitely miss it. I've been browsing some of your posts but haven't even had the strength to comment on them. Also thank you for the lovely tweets, comments, and emails! I'll start getting back to them now that I feel a bit better. It's good to be back! Happy Sunday!

  9. Aww Coco!! I remember being in the same position a few weeks ago; being that sick is no fun :( Don't push yourself too hard, get lots of rest, and snuggle with your kitty... those things will get your well in no time! Aside from that, I can't even imagine how weird it would be to see your face in a magazine haha! Congrats (even though you don't like the picture; I'm sad to agree that your hair doesn't look as good as it usually does the way they styled it) and hopefully you'll get many more fun opportunities like that in the future :D

  28. That's so cool that you were in a magazine! That sucks you were sick all week! My boyfriend just figured out how we can get american netflix so now I can watch all the gossip girl episodes! He even watches them with me, it's our new routine! I need some new shows though, so I'd be interested in any suggestions :)

  31. Get well soon! I'm currently feeling like I'll start being sick in the next few days, but I don't have time for that! I really hope some hot tea will help me get rid of that maybe-soon-to-be sore throat. Lol. And congrats for being featured in a magazine! It must be a fab feeling, even though you don't like the photo very much.

    P.S. Can't wait to see the reivew of the Sleek palette. Ever since I got the Lorac Pro palette, I've been obsessing over matte eyeshadows.

  32. Yay for freebies! It would be great if you could do a face of the day post using randomly selected items from your makeup collection. It would be a challenge but maybe then it would get you to use the items you got for free as well as the items you paid full price for!
