Busy Little Bee


So, just went to the MAC pro store yesterday. Yes, I did need a moment afterwards. Phew that place is amazing. I bought 2 sets of fake eyelashes for the next time I go out on the town and I also bought the new smokin eyes pallette( as seen below)and I purchased some of the Painterly collection, Moss Scape which comes in a paint pot. Then of course I bought some basics such as lipsticks, lip gelle, prep and prime lashes, and etc..I love it all. I have it already organized and in my little mac case.

On, other exciting news. I am going on a job site tommorow. My boss is taking me to a house in Beverly Park, which is a gated/exclusive community and apparently this house is like 42,000 sq. feet. I can't imagine it. I am so freaking excited to see this amazing thing!

And, other exciting news as far as jobs go. I am working full time on a as need basis. Which works for me. I get to cash in on working full time, but if I want to take a couple days off here and there its not big deal. I love my job! I am so happy that I am there.

I have to run but I love and miss you all!

Best Part of Being an Adult

Well there are many things I could say to give reasons on why I think it's amazing to be an adult, but this happens to be one of my favorite reasons, but there is one that frosts the cupcake ( no pun intended ;).....) Being able to have an iced coffee and a cupcake for breakfast ( don't worry I had a banana as well.)

So have a cupcake and embrace your older self. :)

Some might say I have a problem

Some might say it's a problem. I say its a love affair. I seem to have many of these. With jewelry, shoes, and of course makeup. My most beloved being makeup.

It all started out when John suggested we go to Ross to look at some simple furniture, and I thought well what the hell might as well take a look on my way out to see if there are any shoes that are cute and this is where the problem started. I started trying them on and they just kept flying into the cart, and this is how I ended up with 6 new pairs of shoes, all for $103.65. what a steal.

here are my shoes in individual order

The First pair:
These little bad boys were only 10.99 and they match a headband I bought at Gap. I love it!

Next up:
These black patent leather mary jane peep toes. It was love at first site with these. Especially at the price of $19.99

Coming Next is :
a pair of school girl plaid slip ons. I love it. These will be perfect for a fall night wandering around the promenade. ( $12.99)

Following is:

A pair of wedged peep toe, 80's tweed flats. I love them. They have just enough heel to be sassy, but comfortable at the same time. I bet my little red pedicured feet will look sensational with these! ( OMG. only $19.99)

Hard to see, but adorable in real life:

These are black and white plaid peep toe heels. Such a cute pair of shoes and perfect to wear with jeans or a dress, and only $16.99

Last but certainly not least:

These stunning green and white tweed Shoes. Everything screams adorable. The tiny little green patent leather bow, to the green and white herringbone tweed fabric. These are so cute I can't wait to slip them on! Also, these were $14.99. Be jealous!

You might say, Jeez Raech. Got a problem, but seriously could you pass up such good prices on all Steve Madden and Dollhouse shoes. If i bought them from Steve Madden I would have paid anywhere from $50-100 on one pair of shoes, and I managed to get 6 pairs for the price of maybe 1 or 2. What a deal!

This really bugs me!

I was just thinking about things that annoy me and well, I really am annoyed when people I don't know call me Raech...NO..that is a privelage that you get when you are my friend, not just some easy thing to say when you first meet me.

so there i said it.. don't' call me raech unless you are my b.f.f.

( it must be the caffeine that has made me a crazy lady this morning)

Stamps and French Pressed Coffee

Bonjour! Quoi de neuf? (

It was time for another blog and I thought I'd share some stampling that I bought last weekend with our $500 Dick Blick Gift Card. Remeber kids, always fill out raffles. You might win something. So, anyays, They come in this little metal tin and have this beautiful pale mint paper with all of the stamps on the front and inside the tin are these aged wooden blocks with different french stamp sayings on them, and a little ink pad.

So, this morning i took a few pictures of the tin, made some french pressed coffee ( see the picture below) and started playing around.

So, here are my pictures from the stamps, and for some stupid reason i can't figure out how to get the underlining function fark it and enjoy!

Makeup for the day

I was browsing M.A.C.'s webpage and found this picture of the new line Painterly. Soo pretty. I might have to stop in and see what kind of damage I can do! So my makeup can't compare to this picture but its been soo long since I actually planned out and put on pretty makeup that I felt like I had to blog about it.

Today the beautiful m.a.c. makeup was:

Base: Foundation
Lid: Gorgeous Gold
Inner corner and crease: Amber lights
Brow Bone: Rose Blanc
Eye Liner: Amber Lights
Cheek: Fluerry
Lipstick: Fun Fun
Eyelashes: Get Bent by Benefit

Than I wore a pale yellow 50's esque sweater, white tank top and dark blue denim sailor pants with pale yellow Steve madden wedges, and those little lady silhouette earrings that I bought off of etsy.

Scary Things Happening

So, I'm all snuggled up in my fresh clean blanket and just drifted off into one of those really nice sleeps when I hear a rumbling. So, I wake up agitated that my sleep has been disrupted and I in the most delicate and feminine way possible say "WTF IS GOING ON?" and I realize we are having an earthquake. I was immediately very scared and hid under the blankets for all 3 seconds that it lasted. About 5 mins later. Marley let out of a few very mean barks to let who ever was shaking his house to quit it. Thanks for protecting me AFTER it is all over.

So boys and girls that is the story of my first earthquake. It was a 4.5 on the Richter scale and it took place in Chatsworth over 30 miles away and that was the after shock of it in S.M.
