It was my day yesterday! Yup, another year older and I got to wear a crown! Well, on Friday at least , when we celebrated my birthday at work!
Had a bit of time yesterday before bed to finally do my nails!
It’s early, I know. But I’ve been up since about 4, and don’t need to be at work till about 7 (which by the way, my office, only 3 minutes away, so I’m not in a total rush!)
So the wedding is in less than two weeks. 11 days to be exact, and my sister is currently calm. For now. Let’s see what happens when I pick her up at the train station Saturday. So while she has a good idea for her hair and makeup (I’m going to try to go to her consultation on Wednesday, but I work, so…), I’ve been researching on my own.
Currently my hair is a very dark auburn color since I’ve been spending a lot of time outside in the wonderful. So I decided that it might be a good time to color my hair. I haven’t really colored my hair since college, and even then, I went with a bright red since I didn’t have a job public job. I was an assistant in one of my university libraries.
I love me some punk stylings! When I was younger I used to wear them all the time. Of course the parental-unit wasn’t too trilled with it, but it was my own clothes, I brought with my own money. Can’t complain. Now I just incorporate them into my work clothes even though my office is pretty lax with the way we dress, but can’t go to overboard. Usually just a bracelet or earrings. And occasionally the leather jacket on Fridays.
It’s been a while since I ordered anything from Sephora. Almost three months, but I had all the necessary beauty items I needed, until now! Which was great timing since it was also around my birthday when I ordered. Yay, birthday gift-y!
I finally did my nails this week, after two times. Seriously, three times to make it look good. On Sunday, I painted my nail and unfortunate smudge it while I slept. Apparently I didn’t let it dry along enough. Sigh.
So birthday weekend was good. Nothing too exciting since my parents really never want to do anything grand for our birthdays. Since I knew they weren’t going to make it special or at least something that I would enjoy, I planned out a great day of playing with the mutt, having Asian buffet with friends and then a hike up near the fort!
