it’s happening: ipsy #1

It’s happening, it’s happening! Okay, this is it, everyone calm down! My very first ipsy bag arrived the other day!!! Also, to my fellow United States-ers, Happy President’s Day. Little known fact: I have the biggest crush on Babe Lincoln, and this holiday is kind of a countrywide celebration of his birthday (February 12) and Washington’s birthday (February 22), as well as a celebration of our Presidents in general. You know, the only thing we really do for President’s Day is stop the mail and close the banks, which is very inconvenient for me, but I’m sure a nice break for the mail and bank staff. I’m sure Obama has the day off as well, which must be nice for him. He’s a cool cat.

But PD aside, we are here for a purpose: the unveiling of my very first ipsy bag!! How exciting! It came in an eye-catching hot pink padded envelope and it was quite a delight to see in my mailbox! The actual bag inside was a lovely pink as well, with cheetah print lining!

oops, I did it again…


I swear, guys… I’m going to get better at this. I know I’m full of excuses, but the semester started and I didn’t realize how busy I would be! Between work, reading for all of my classes, writing essays, and everything else that I have to do, I’ve hardly had time to breathe, let alone write a blog post! But since I’ve decided to be a Grown Up Adult, I figured I should probably do at least one of the things on my to-do list, and my bank is already closed for the day.

Just kidding, of course, I love writing in this blog, but I have been really busy, and for that I apologize. My commitment to all of you, dear readers, is good and strong, though wavered a bit in the face of essays, English classes, and exams (things that start with the letter E, basically).

Now that apologies are (once again) out of the way, I’d like to tell you what else has been up! I signed up for a website called ipsy, which is a whole lot like Birchbox, only twice as fun. Every month you receive a “glam bag”, which is a $10 monthly subscription of makeup products (both trial and full-sized) and it all comes in a different, cute makeup bag that you can use forever! I had been recommended to join this site by countless people and FINALLY caved last month. I’m going to receive my first bag soon and I’ll unveil that all for you guys (maybe in video form, if I do in fact buy my new camera, but please don’t hold your breath on that one; Rent needs to be paid, you know), though they do show you online what you are getting, I like to be surprised. I’ll post a review of the signing up/unveiling experience for you guys, if you’re interested! Hopefully that will entice you to join in on the fun, that way we can talk about which products we did (and didn’t) like, and share as a group!

Also, can someone remind me to bring my charger to work next time? I’m dying without my fingertips to a touchscreen. Is it possible to be too dependent on an inanimate object? Nah!

Until next time, sweets!
