Best 21st Birthday & Drake

So my birthday was a few weeks ago and since then a lot of good things have happened
1) I successfully made my first ever cake and it actually turned out good. It was supposed to be leopard print but the colors were so similar it looked a little like cow print lol
2) I celebrated with my friends and family all week
3) I got a new job :) 
and 4) My best friend surprised me with Drake tickets =D
Now I know a lot of people have their opinions on Drake but when it comes to me I'm absolutely in love with him and I've always wanted to go to a concert. Unfortunately I got sick the day before so I spent all day yesterday sleeping and taking a ton of medicine so I would be ready to go! Best night of my life! 
I can definitely check off those things on my mental bucket list!

New Mannequins!

So growing up I have always wanted a mannequin. I can remember when I would get PB Teen magazines I would circle all the things I wanted and they were at least $199. Well this isn't new, I've actually had them since February but I had to figure out where and how I would actually use them before I could post about them. 
For those who don't know I work at V. Secret and we are doing some MAJOR remodeling to the point where we will be double the size and comparable to the two story store they have in Chicago. I helped out with the entire move and as one of the few associates that got to see the old store for the last time we also were able to run around and pick out mannequins for us to take home. I couldn't believe my luck and I wish I would have grabbed a few more for friends but here are my new babies :) 
Excuse the mess, I'm currently trying to get my room in order.
I've been using the one with polka dots for my purses and the other for my scarves :) 
Also my birthday past last week and I'm trying to prepare a Haul/Birthday Video to post on here. Not sure when but I will try too soon!

Update #2 & Sinful Colors Haul

Hello Gorgeous
So it has been a long time since I last updated so here's what has been going on:
1) I had my interview at my job (which wasn't a real interview I guess) and actually a complete waste of my time. It was good thing though because now I'm seeking a new opportunities at other places. Oh well it's just retail right?
2) I finished my last semester as a Junior in my undergrad, finishing with all B+'s which is fine by me but it kind of stinks when I was only a few points away from As... 
3) I got a new job (or second job)  :) 
4) I start my summer classes next week
oh and 5) I guess the whole catty girls and drama didn't end in high school and a lot of people I was friends with from work ended up starting situations with me. It's sad to know that no matter what age we are girls are still trying to be rude and talk behind peoples backs. But of course it was a lesson learned and I still have the girls who stick with me through thick and thin! 
Besides all of that my life is definitely going the way I want it too. I'm actually starting to live and eat healthier. I actually joined a gym and started with a personal trainer for a few days to see certain things I can do and I'm planning on going to the gym 3 to 4 days a week. I'm even more excited to start making delicious healthy meals that will leave me happy and energized rather than fat and bloated. I might keep track of my progress on here or post some new recipes I discover...but we will see :) 
So enough about my life, 
My best friend called me a couple weeks ago and told me that Sinful Colors at Walgreen's were all of a sudden on sale for 99 cents. Although they are normally $1.99 which is still a good price I couldn't pass up this deal. I went 2 different times and picked up 5 nail polishes for $5.25 both times. Total it cost me $10.50 for 10 bottles. Unfortunately, I picked up a color I already had so I hope they will let me exchange it! I think this deal is over but I'm pretty sure they will do it again soon, at least I hope.
