Oh... The beauty of it all

It took me a long while to post this entry up just because I've been working every single day for the past 2 weeks. I know that's pretty insane but I have two jobs and it really helps me out with repaying my loans. Anywhose, this post is a bit random with little bits of here and there that just happened since the last time I wrote.

Exciting news! At least for me it was. I won XJOLE's giveaway! It was shocking because it just came out of the blue, what a great incentive for working 14 days in a row! I literally rarely win anything, even lottery and scratch offs don't like me.

The oh-so-generous Joanna sent me a package with goodies which I wouldn't have expected!

Wow... MAC stuff? Thank you so much!!! <3>

She got me MAC e/s in Brill and and eyebrow pencil in Taupe.
I'm in love with the eyebrow pencil, I never new MAC made such nice eyebrow pencil!
Swatches are above.

NOTD - Summer Peach



I feel like I'm getting all this weather and color polishes all mixed up. Why am I wearing summery colors in the fall? But I have to say, it is a nice non-flashy color.

American Apparel branded polishes have gorgeous colors but the staying power is really poor. I wouldn't purchase them again even if their colors are sooo pretty. The nail polishes starts chipping and coming off in less than a week, and I already place a base and top coat. Disappointing, I know.

On a light note.
How about some pictures of eateries =D

Crawfish Stuffed Bread

Gator Bites (yes, it's alligator meat!)

Catfish Josh

Crawfish Mara

Mara's Homemade

I guess you guys figured out nearly all the dishes have crawfish in them because apparently, crawfish season is back! hahaha
I never had crawfish before but it sure taste like a cross between a mini lobster and a sun-dried shrimp. It was pretty good for a southern creole spot. I was actually more interested in the alligator meat. That was a first timer for me also, gosh I feel like a virgin talking about food now. Hope your mouth is drooling now! =D
