Gosh Cosmetics Velvet Touch Primer

The best part about today was the fact that I got up at 9:00 AM to a snowstorm outside. At first, I was really, really angry because Alexa and I are in the same class, and I knew she was going to make me go to class. When we were ready, we left around 10:10 to walk to class. Let me just tell you; it was a LOT snowier than we expected outside!!After walking most of the way to school, complaining about how soaked we were getting, complaining about how cold it was, complaining that our hair was getting wet, relizing that we were going to be late for class (which the professor HATES), Alexa finally turned to me and said “Is my eye makeup running down my face?”  “Umm, yeah. Is mine?”  “Yes… Let’s go home.”

Definitely one of my favorite moments of the week. The fact that our makeup was getting ruined was enough to make us turn around and go home! Also, on top of ALREADY being late for class, we would have to go to the washroom, wash our faces off, get to class… it was just a mess. So we headed home,put on some trackpants and made waffles for breakfast! Yummy!

A few minutes ago, I was shopping around for makeup online looking for items to add to my wish list (I have a physical wish list done up with price comparisons and everything!), when I had to itch my nose. When I did, I realized that even after walking for ten minutes with snow on my face, sitting around being lazy all day watching TV, resting my face on my hands, my foundation was miraculously STILL on my face! That’s when I realized that I really needed to put it out there to the world just how great this new product that I have is!

At the begining of November, I had to go to Shoppers Drug Mart to get some acne medication for a really bad breakout. I had to wait 20 minutes, so I decided to shop around. I found this great Primer, Gosh Cosmetics Velvet Touch! I have to say that it’s probably one of my favorite products that I own.  It’s very lightweight and I wear it over my moisturizer and under my foundation. It really does deliver a “velvety” touch to it, my skin feels very soft and smooth! It definitely helps to keep your makeup on ALL DAY LONG, even through a snowstorm and a lazy day! It was one of the more expensive products I’ve purchased, I’m pretty sure I got it for around 23 dollars at Shopper’s Drug Mart, but I’ve heard that it’s comparable to Smashbox Photo finish, which I’ve heard is a really great primer. I don’t really have anything to compare it to, but I do know that it has great staying power, and feels great on your skin!

Anyways, I just wanted to share that. It’s time to cook myself some supper and clean my room, I’m heading home for the weekend! I can’t wait to see my puppy tomorrow!

“WHY did you write it as C2O? are you dyslexic?”

I spent the night studying and doing homework tonight. I think it was one of the first nights of my whole university career (thus far!) that I’ve actually sat down and set out a certain amount of work for myself to do that didn’t absolutely HAVE to be done for the next day. I’m trying to get my Science 1151 lab done before an  hour before my lab for once.

This reminded me of in grade 11 when I took first level chemistry. My chemistry teacher was awesome (although I hated the course itself) and he always said really profound, philosophical, funny things that my best friend and I would find amusing, and we would then write them on my pencil case to document our “Mr. Chemistry Quotes”. I even transferred the quotes over to my Zwipes binder when I had to get rid of my blue Spacemaker pencil case.

Some quotes from Mr. Chemistry:
“.. you’re moving during midterms? WOW, you’re REALLY going to be screwed up, aren’t you!”
“WHY did you write it as C2O? are you dyslexic?”
“LIFE sucks… sometimes.”
“Science must be reproducible!”
“We all know why Alice was in wonderland!”
“…you’re not planning on taking chemistry again, are you?”

Quite honestly, if it hadn’t been for my lack of interest or ability when it came to chemistry, I probably would have stayed in the course just for the funny comments.

There hasn’t really been any reason for my lack of writing lately, I just simply haven’t been inspired enough to write a blog. I’ve had lots of ideas for blogs – but no real inspiration to write them.

I found out today that Alexa and I will have a place to live next year – which is quite exciting. I really hope that my off-campus life is a lot better than my on-campus life. I came into residence ready to rock, to be the most involved person in the house, to someday be a proctor, to live on campus my whole entire MUN career. Now we all see how THAT turned out. It’s not really residence’s fault – but that’s for a another blog. Anyways, we’re really excited, however we have no definite roomates. We do, however, have definite various kitchen appliances, so I guess that’s always a plus! 😀

I FINALLY got my eyeshadow pallette from starsmakeuphaven! I’m so excited. I  think i’ll probably do a March Favorites blog at the end of March – which isn’t so far away! only a week and a half and it’s April! This semester has really flown by.

In other news, Brandon and I celebrated our one year anniversary last week! 🙂 we celebrated by going to Fog city for dinner followed by shopping time and a movie (we saw Remember Me – It was pretty good, twisted ending!)  the end of the night didn’t turn out so great. Let’s just say that this is one kaleidoscopicat that was not happy with her public transportation. Thankfully, I have an awesome roomate who did Brandon’s Psychology quiz with him over the phone so that he could get it in on time!  Overall, I had an excellent evening, I was just glad that we got to celebrate our one-year together. 🙂

Anyhow, hopefully more blogs later! I’m sorry that I’ve abandoned you. I’ll try harder, I promise!!

Why this weekend was awesome:

  • I spent the whole weekend NOT in a mall! It’s definately a first for me since I’ve been here.
  • There were perogies for breakfast.
  • There were apples for breakfast on saturday. That was the best part of my weekend, almost.
  • I spent the weekend with brandon just relaxing and watching Dexter.
  • I finished Glee season one! I cannot wait for April 13!
