Short Hair, Don't Care ♡

I got my hair cut and colored on an impulse yesterday when I went with my mother to get hers done. When we saw a girl with this cute hair my mom offered to pay for it, if and only if I get it cut. I cannot explain how much hair is gone but it is definitely a difference. The best part is all of my failed hair cuts and failed colored damaged hair is now gone. I also picked up a dry shampoo by KMS called Hair Play that I can't wait to try! 

Anyways, here's the short hair :)

Matte About You ♡

I was out with my friend after work and we decided to go out to dinner. In between our talks of the holidays I brought up how much I wanted the new OPI Nicki Minaj Collection but I couldn't find it anywhere. She told me how beauty first had them the other day so once our dinner was over we went straight over there and I purchased Pink Friday ($8.50) and Metallic 4 Life ($8.50). After looking around I also noticed they had Essie's Matte About You for $2 (Priced $5-8)  :O 

I purchased all three and for the past week I've been wearing Pink Friday. I've gotten so many compliments on it but personally I expected it to be a little bit more of an hot pink. Once I put it on though, I fell in love! 
I have not had the chance to wear all three (or get my nails done so I apologize for the horrible cuticles) so I used my nail palettes to show them off :)

Belated New Year ♡

So I have been a horrible blogger...I have not blogged my entire winter break, but a lot has happened since Christmas and New Year. Let me start off by saying HAPPY NEW YEAR! :) I had an amazing 2011 with my study abroad trip to Italy and a lot of the people I met the past year. I have been working the whole holiday season and I have to say I have never dealt with so many rude people. I almost wanted to quit my job because people are CRAZY! But there were definitely a lot of customers that made me realize how much I loved what I do. I'm just happy it's over!

I normally don't like going into personal details on sites like these but I can't help myself. About a year ago I met this guy on Twitter (I know, I'm embarrassed to admit it) but we just started out talking crap to each other and he pretty much became my best friend. We would message each other everyday for the next 6 months and even when I went to Italy I managed to stay in contact with him. I started realizing how much I liked him because he literally acted like me, but the fact he lived over 2000 miles away it never seemed realistic. Before I knew it we slowly made it apparent how we felt and our messages turned into Skype dates and finally texting. He came to visit me the past few days and he left this morning and I can honestly say I miss him so much. Its crazy because he is everything I could have ever asked in a guy, but the distance just kills me. Well I guess we are going to see where it takes us, I'm just going to put it in gods hands and hope for the best.

Anyways I picked up a few goodies in between working and my love life so I will be posting details soon. School starts again tomorrow I'm hoping for a great semester.

How were your holidays?
