Oh, hello!

It's been awhile, yes? A lot has happened. A lot is happening. A lot is changing. As is life, no? Full of happenings and change and such? 

Last year was amazing. Then I moved back home. And I was greeted with grief and sadness. And more grief and sadness and I was just a broken mess. Life is funny like that, all your dreams could come true one minute and the next you're just a pile of brokeness. Sometimes it's hard to find the will to pick yourself back up and sometimes it's hard not to fixate your day on finding answers. Asking questions no one has answers to. 

I think for the most part I've blocked it out. Pushed it away. But not without feeling guilt. But what else can I do? I would still be a mess if I let it get to me. My husband on the other hand, is in a bit of denial. 

Our princess cat loved him. She loved him to bits. They were napping buddies from the day she arrived here. The very first day. You could tell she fell in love with him. And when he would leave after staying here for a few days she would sleep by the door of the guest room and not move. And my mom says she was like that when I left last year too. I tried to come home to see her for my birthday, but it didn't work out. I was angry at first, but thinking back on it, I think I would be even more heartbroken if I had to leave her again and find out she died a few months later. I just wish I had been able to tell her I was coming back. I was almost home. I was a week too late. I think she's still here sometimes, I'll see a wisp of where she would be when I walk into the dark hallway. Husband will here a meow outside the bathroom door (as always). My puppy will bark at the empty spots where she would always be.

*sad smile*

Other than that, school has been... kicking us down. Trying to get back into the swing of things. It's weird, being back here. 

Haven't been too into the makeup scene lately. Nothing is really catching my eye these days. I miss the days when MAC was new and interesting and exciting! Now it's like everything is a re-promote. Ho hum. I am excited for the Vera collection though! Then again I'm excited for any collection that has to do with crushed pigments :)

What? It's December?!

When the hell did that happen?!

I can't believe it's already December!

I'm that much closer to moving and I'm getting more and more homesick. It's crazy. I get to live my dream. My DREAM and I'm being homesick. I'm envious of my husband right now, he's nothing else but excited. Then again I guess nothing can be as bad as the military. It's been really really cold lately and I haven't really felt like doing anything but cuddle under a fluffy blanket and read. I'm loving all this Christmasy stuff. I'm loving Seattles Best's Peppermint Mocha and Bath & Body Works Twisted Peppermint body lotion. mMm!

I have a ton of cleaning to do and packing. I don't know where to even begin. I'm losing my train of thought lol. Husband is watching Message in a Bottle which is my ultimate favorite Nicolas Sparks book. 

I hate how I want to blog but I never know what to say.

Allergies.... in Autumn?!

The seasons are changing and with that come.... allergies and a slight cold. Wait for it... I know it's coming! I'm super excited for the turn of the season, this is my favorite time of the year! Husband let me take a little trip to Sephora a few days ago to pick up a Philosophy bath set (that smells delicious) that I've been begging for (I even made up a song so he wouldn't forget)! I was going to grab a lippie set too, but I figured I didn't need it. I love Philosophy's lippies but I never seem to finish them. I finished one. They were putting out the Christmas gift sets already and I'm super excited about those!

I know, I've been MIA for a long period of time. A lot has happened and a lot has changed since I was last here. I'm not annoucing anything until the date comes closer :) but it's incredibly exciting news! And I'm very excited for it! I'm going to be doing a huge blog sale soon because I realize I have a ton of products that I haven't even touched since I got it. Insane. I'm trying to inch my way back into reviewing makeup but husband doesn't think it's a good idea (of course lol). But I am having a blast with my book blog :).

I got a new camera! The Canon PowerShot S90! I'm excited about it. It's a point and shoot that acts like a dSLR, at least, that's what I hear and see with the pictures on Flickr. I'm excited to test it out! I decided against the upgrade, the S95 because it didn't seem like much of an upgrade and for $60 extra, I could do without it's upgrades. 

What else? This post is getting much too long. I need to get my blogs much more organized!

What is with all this spam?!

I go through my comments and I find that only 2 comments out of 9 aren't spam. What is up with all this spam?! I have word verification and everything! Ugh, it's so frustrating to have to go through and delete all of them. 

Anyway, my fourth class at UoP ended last Monday. I'm starting a new class this Monday and I haven't even met the teacher yet. In fact, our discussion page isn't even set up yet so she took the time to email everyone the syllabus. Why? Because we have an essay due, the first day of class. About three chapters we're suppose to read.

Why, nice to meet you too!

Ugh. Sometimes I think college isn't for me. But I do love this school and I am excited for my career, so I just have to shut up and suck it up.

My Amazon order isn't coming in this week, which means I get no new books this week. Well that's not completely true. I got 3 books this week so far for review, one of which I'm really excited to read (Siren by Tricia Rayburn). I also got an email back from Penguin Publishing finally and they approved my request for the two ARC's I wanted. So I'm excited about that as well! Now if only I could get an email back from HarperTeen...

I've realized that I spore up and my brain turns into mush in the summer. It's just too freakin hot to think or do anything. I can't wait until Fall, that's when I wake up and start getting creative. I love cool and cold weather!

I wish I had asked my dad to get me a chocolate parfait... darn.

I'm in such a blah mood.

I've been so horrible at blogging lately. I guess it's because I have wayy too many blogs to even attempt to keep up with and I just feel so... obligated. Plus it's summer and summer just isn't my favorite time of the year. I hate summer! I've been so lazy lately, all I ever feel like doing is sleeping and reading. 

I've got a few books that I recieved for review and I'm lagging behind on them because I'm reading the new releases instead. Ack! So many books, not enough time or brain space to read them! I've recently found that I enjoy review books much more than I like reviewing makeup...

Speaking of, I've been racking my brain to find a way to get me back into blogging on in her closet. I know it started off as a makeup blog, but I don't really want it to stay a makeup blog. I named it "in her closet" so I could branch off and write reviews on other things that really matter to me, after all it is my blog, I should be able to review whatever I want, right?

I do have a seperate book blog floating around blogspot so I wasn't sure if I would throw in book reviews, though I might, because it's something I'm into right now and besides, I do store them in my closet, literally. Don't get me wrong, I still want to review makeup, but just not as much... gah, I hope this makes sense... or maybe I'm just rambling... I also want to go back to blogging here too... I miss it here! I haven't had much of a desire to blog at my domain, I just really have no idea why it's there... 

I need a vacation. From all this blogging stuff lol.

School is getting harder. I mean, I knew it would, we're not really noobs anymore, we're getting into the more serious classes, but I didn't expect it to kick my ass like this... like right now, I'm suppose to be turning in my final assignment. I should be glad I have a final assignment and not a final. I just hate how once you actually start to get what the class is about, you're off to the next class. *sigh.

Hello :)

I know it's been a really long while since I've last blogged here, I've been super busy (as you can see my beauty blog and youtube have been a bit neglected too). I've been so wrapped up with school (I go to two different colleges), my newest projects and figuring out this marriage thing and still finding time to myself to stay sane! The good news is, after next week is summer break. Whoohoo!! I'm super excited about that! I get a bit more time to myself. Unless I find a summer job (like I kinda plan to, it would leave me even less time to work on my projects but I do need the money this summer)...

So I hope to update this mid next week since this weekend is going to be super busy. What have you all been up to lately?
