You guys I have the worst JR Bourne situation. I still haven't finished Teen Wolf S2 (I keep meaning to, and don't, and fail all over in a failing way) but goddamn Chris Argent. Why ever are you my favorite? Why?


I haven't even dared to go looking for fic about him because I'm scared of what I might find.
sheikah: (Sanctuary: Yeah no)

You're all welcome.

I had massive insomnia last night so I uh, made my first fanvid ever >.>

Here it is, a Will/Mac fanvid for [personal profile] ceilidh (but I hope some other people around here might enjoy it).

Discouraged by the lack of icons from The Host for my rping purposes, I made a bunch. Please feel free to snag with credit!

This took forever but I finally posted a video + pics of my massive Sephora haul over here at my beauty blog.

That...was my whole Saturday. Someday I will get more efficient at video editing but today is not that day.
sheikah: (Actress: Anna Poppelwell)
Yall I just got in a Sephora order that was almost $500.00 and it was fucking glorious. I heard choirs of angels when I opened the box.

(Yes, I am not the best example on how to be an adult but I just got married and it's not like I need towels and sheets and shit when I've been living with the guy for four years >.>)

I will do a video for my blog and link it here tomorrow when I can properly go over how amazeballs these things are but some of what I got:

- Urban Decay BB cream
- (2) Hourglass Visionaire eyeshadow duos
- A Kat Von D palette (The Ludwig one)
- A KORRES blush + mineral veil kit
- a NARS shadow duo
- an Urban Decay cream blush (in the color Bang, trolol)
- a travel brush set that is ADORABLE and PINK
- a new MARCHESA perfume, Gucci Guilty and DKNY Be Delicious
- some boring primers and moisturizers and stuff
- a Sephora Collection baked shadow palette.
- the Disney Jasmine shadow quad
- a green eyeliner from Make Up For Ever and a green gel liner from Bobbi Brown (what? Pantone's color of the year is Emerald! I am ON TREND).
sheikah: (Amanda Tapping: Hair)
I FINALLY did a State of the Pups over here.
sheikah: ([True Blood] Sookie)
So Urban Decay has sent me YET ANOTHER $5.00 off coupon code (they have to stop, it keeps making me buy shit >.<) so it's free to whoever my first taker is.

I know, yall are sick of hearing about this damn wedding but I got my photos from my father in law and I am posting the one where I look...less bad.

(I just intensely dislike full body shots of myself >.<)

photo! )

Well, that's done and I'm married. I don't have any photos right this second because I didn't take any on my camera - my father in law is a wedding photographer and was just chomping at the bit to do photos and I couldn't refuse him, especially since he regularly charges thousands of dollars to do them :)

He's SUPPOSED to email me photos soonish so...I told him not to waste any time doing touchups since I can do them myself but he probably will anyway.

You know what is super fun? Changing your name on EVERY ACCOUNT THAT YOU HAVE.

I haven't even begun to figure out what I'm going to have to do for work, oi.

sheikah: ([The Newsroom] Mac - yeah right)
Look, okay, I realize me deciding to get married was kind of a spur of the moment thing but for the love of GOD why does it have to be so arduous to find a damn dress in a size that isn't 24W or 00? THERE IS NO IN BETWEEN.

I absolutely didn't want a white dress but I thought surely I could find some kind of mother of the bride type thing in purple or deep blue EASY AS PIE. NOPE.

I ended up getting something in sapphire blue that I like well enough but I paid more than I wanted to for it. The only saving grace is that I can wear it to the opera or to perform in instead of black, so >.>

Of course the sales women were no help, because they kept pulling prom dresses even though I'm A) Almost thirty (I guess I don't look it?) and B) I SAID I WANTED A DRESS FOR A WEDDING. Also don't flatter me by trying to pull a 12 off the rack to see if it will fit. You know damn well I'm a 16-18 and sometimes a 20 if it's cut narrow in the bust.


I did get new makeup (some of the MAC Archie collection that made me think of [personal profile] merridia) today to make up for this horrible experience. And a blue silk blouse that reminds me of MacKenzie McHale.
sheikah: (Stargate: Jack facepalms)
Blech. I somehow think I must have caught [personal profile] ceilidh's cold through the intertubes/osmosis/suggestion because I feel like crap. I did manage to stave off the worst of it through copious amounts of Zicam, Nyquil and sleep last night (I went to bed at like, 9PM no joke.)

So of course I wake up at 4:15 AM this morning. A full 45 minutes before I have to be awake. Oi.

This was my first year actually signing up and writing for Yuletide and I wrote two fics, my assignment and a treat!

Astrid has the North in her in a way that a person has to be born to, not learned, and it’s as much a part of her as her blonde hair and her blue eyes and her silly laugh.

I have a massive hangover. Maybe my resolution should be to NEVER do that again.
sheikah: ([True Blood] Jessica; sad)
Oh well, I suck at everything.

Honestly, not a sympathy ploy - though if you want to leave me a nice comment, it will fall on appreciative ears. I just...there is literally no aspect of my life where I am ever congratulated for anything. My relationship? Sucks. I have a physical inability to keep my damn mouth shut so people like me in my personal life and I spent all day being told I'm completely incompetent at my job in spite of having two degrees and five years experience.

It's been a banner day, let me tell you. I think I'm going to go hide under my blankets with my cats and not come out until Monday.
sheikah: (stock: wolf)
So, I'm reading The Mayfair Moon by JA Redmerski, which [personal profile] eibbil_libbie graciously let me borrow and while I like it so far, I have one huge beef.

The first part of the book is set in Athens, GA, but the way this author describes the town, it sounds more like a place in south GA than Athens. And it bugs me. Not enough to make me quit reading, mind, but idk, could you have googled it?

The setting moved, now, and I'm starting to get into the book a little more so it was just a minor gripe.
sheikah: (alison sudol: looking over shoulder)
Well, a few pleasant surprises today!

- work presented me with an amethyst and diamond ring for my 5 year work-a-versary. I am a fan.

- work also sent me home early, again, and is letting me have next Wednesday off

- Jeff got his bonus from the bank, which was 3% of his salary.

- WE HAVE FINALLY DECIDED TO ACTUALLY LEGIT GET MARRIED (If I don't get cold feet again) and we're going on a cruise to the Bahamas in March to do it.
sheikah: (Christmas: Gingerbread Man)
Merry Christmas/Happy Yule/Whatever you celebrate!
