Blah... :-/

I typically don't blog about my personal stuff or anything outside makeup, hair, and nails, so on and so forth.  Anyhow, I'm just having a very rough day.  Its really been a rough week to tell the truth.  #1. Aunt Flo's in town, which really isn't a bad thing since I'm always happy to see her come and go.  #2 My financial situation is in chambles, which is a whole other situation and a conversation for another time. #3 I changed jobs, and a.) my current job is just not enough, especially money wise. b.) I'm not in the field I want to be in, or even the industry. Overall, I'm just really hoping that 2011 will be a much better year.  I had such high hopes for 2010 and it pretty much turned out to be a bust. Of course I know I'm blessed for the the blessings I did receive and I always acknowledge that.  I'm just really struggling emotionally and it has been really hard holding everything together.  It especially sucks getting screwed over by people you were once close to, it really just teaches you that you can trust no one.  Ladies, I recommend to never join accounts with anyone that you are not married to.  It will put you in the worst financial situation ever!  This is one major reason for my stress, because I keep trying to detach myself from my ex, but yet there are still things that keep us attached and it SUCKS major!  In due time everything will work itself, I keep my trust and faith in God and know that he is in control of all things.

I pretty much just needed to vent, thanks for reading, listening, etc....

Right Now > What I'm Loving

Mark Kay 5-pc Brush Set

I got this brush set for Christmas and I absolutely love it!  The brushes themselves are very high quality.  They are super soft, and from an application standpoint they put down color really well.  I especially like the all face powder brush and the blush/contour brush.  I haven't used the double-sided brow brush very much, however, I did use the liner brush on the bottom to apply some cream eyeliner.  Overall, I liked the application.  The brush was firm, but not stiff.  After being a loyal mac-only brush user, there is definitely room in my collection to include this great set of brushes.
