First, for those who just like the pictures, here is an EOTD I did using Sally Girl eye shadows that I swatched in this post. I'm not sure why I decided to call it Pink Champagne. I don't think I've ever drank champagne, much less pink champagne. I'm not in a creative mood right now so this is what it's going to be called. So there!
All eye shadows used are Sally Girl. On the inner two-thirds of my eyelid I used Soft Pink and on the outer third I used Rose. Above that I used Cinnamon widely in the crease with a small amount of Espresso in the crease to darken it a bit. I used Gun Metal to highlight the inner corner and my brow bone. For the upper liner I used Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips Hazel eyes pencil in the pink color over black liner. Below my lower lashes I used Physician's Formula Glam Eyes gel liner from the green eyes trio in a silvery color.
And here is the ranty bit. I have a few purchases I've already paid for coming in the mail and quite a bit more that I've bought previously still waiting to be posted about, but after those I'm putting myself on an extremely low-buy. I'm saying low-buy instead of no-buy because I don't want to hate myself if I fail (and I probably will. Just being realistic.). The whole reason I started this blog after wanting to for about 2 years is because I recently acquired tons of free time. While free time is always nice, I would rather be back at school, which is what I was doing before I had to drop my classes this semester.
About two and a half months ago I had to have emergency surgery that I am still currently recovering from. Because of it I'm unable to either work or go to school. I'm so lucky that I have insurance that was able to pay for the majority of my hospital bills. (And really, it is a bit of a miracle that I have insurance. After not having it for over 6 years I finally got on it 2 months before my emergency. If I hadn't have had insurance I would tried to tough it out through the pain, which would have killed me. Literally. So talk about good timing.) But still, I owe the hospital over $1700. (And that's just from the hospital. I still have to pay my doctor, the anesthesiologist, and the lab for my lab work.) They told me my only options were to pay the balance in full and get a 20% discount or make payments over 2 years which would be $70 a month or so. Yeah, I can't do either of those things. So my bill will go to collections and eventually my credit will be ruined.
I live with my (fantabulastic) boyfriend and he has been supporting me while I go to school. But he can't afford to pay for my millions of bills despite having a great job because he has his own hospital bills to pay for. We're only 24 but both have had major surgeries in the past year. We're so lucky, haha.
So yeah, I don't know what I'm going to do. So needless to say, not very many makeup purchases on my horizon. Whew, that was long! Thanks to all of ya'll that made it to the end.
Thanks you for reading and have a great day/night/whatever!
