Reflecting on 2008 + My NYE Look

Posted by Jane at 4:20 PM 4 comments
for me 2008 was a year to learn a lot from it really wasn't one of my best years &it also wasn't bad but through all the UPs and DOWNs of 2008, i still would like to reflect on the good things that has happened for me this past year!

i went to the motherland after 7 years &honestly i feel the older you are the more of an appreciation you will have for background &for the things you have b/c a lot of them aren't as fortunate &you get a better understanding of what our parents went through to give us the lives we have today.
• my son had his first real hair cut -- he went bald!
(he had a trim after turning one in 2007)
i celebrated my second mother's day -- i love my son! (=
my son sorta learned how to swim (he still wears floaties of course) but he can go to the deep end by himself &i still can't! /=
my best friend, my love, &the father of my son &i celebrated 4 years of being together &i can truly say we have been through a lot in that time!
• we had our first family trip to san diego zoo + sea world (i took him to disneyland previously but it was just me + the in-laws that time -- the hubby had to work)
i started getting into the makeup scene + my crazy collection of makeup began! (=
my son started early education (pre-school) which is for him to socialize since he doesn't really have cousins his age but that will change w/ the coming year.
my hubby went back to school
my son turned 2 years old
my maternal grandfather (only living grandparent today) came back from the Philippines (he's retired)
i had the best semester in college this past fall 2008 (=
i turned 23 &i am healthy, strong, &beautiful
my parents celebrated their 24th wedding anniversary &are still happily married &the best grandparents ever i might add! (= next year will be their silver year!

..&i thank God for those blessings everyday!

there are many things in store for 2009 some we may know of &some will come in surprise but whatever they may be we can only hope that God continues to bless us w/ all the beautiful things in life!

now onto..

My NYE Look:
so this is a look i've created on my youtube for NYE &it's the look i plan to recreate to ring in 2009!

Let it SnOw!!

Posted by Jane at 10:14 PM 3 comments
it snowed WAY more today than it did on my birthday &it piled up beautifully! (=


last sunday my son, his cousin (aka my goddaughter), &my 2 youngest cousins made gingerbread houses at my parents' house. my son had so much fun eating the candy that he had my cousin &i finish sticking all the candy on his gingerbread house. it got really messy once my mom thought sprinkles would make a lovely addition to the candy houses. /=

monday was my 23rd birthday &it was snowing! snow in vegas is not likely &when it does it happen it's brief, only lasts for about a day, and if it piles up it would piles up to about an inch and disappears the next day.

so it snowed for most of the day &it didn't pile to an inch which i was kinda hoping for &of course the next day was completely gone! but it made the roofs of the houses have a beautiful snowy top to them by night time the snow began to melt! )= but it was beautiful to have landed on the day of my birthday! (=

some of my friends + family joined me for a dinner at red robin but we forgot to take pictures! )= i did take pictures of the look i was wearing and even did a tutorial for it on my youtube.

overall, it was a good birthday and i wanna thanks those of you who greeted me a happy birthday! i really appreciate it!! (=

Good Deals at Costco

Posted by Jane at 10:26 PM 3 comments
so i found some good deals at costco that i thought i'd share w/ you all! (=

stila sets
eyeshadow duo sets - $16.99

shape up your face set - $15.99

L: warm set R: cool set

mac shadows
blackberry, swish, newly minted, &orb - $11.49 each

i picked up 2 of the 4 mac shadows that they had &i'm thinking about going back for the other 2! i mean you save $3.01.. so why not!?

i want to pick the stila 'shape up your face' set also.. $16.99 for stila.. what a steal!

as for the eyeshadow duos.. i'm going to pass on them. for the price it's a very good deal but it's just the pans so i would have nothing to depot them into. \=

i hope to have a collective haul video up tomorrow w/ my new things!

so until then.. goodnight loves!
