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…
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although I don’t like how the picture turned out (as I look nothing like myself and feel they styled my hair in a very “outdated” way), it was a great experience.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!)
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!
