I'm a Makeup Geek.

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

I'm subscribed to a handful of makeup "gurus" on youtube and the MakeupGeek channel is one of them. 
She's the most professional and down to earth guru of the ones I watch and I think this last video was great because as a amateur MUG (makeup geek) I'm not sure about all these different brands and their specialties.
So, if you're a novice like me OR you just want to see what someone else has to say about the top brands in makeup and their well-knowns then check this video out!


Cooking Mama: Pumpkin Pie!

Thursday, November 25, 2010

This is my first year making pumpkin pie. It's a pretty big deal for two reasons - one, I <3 pumpkin pie, so finally learning how to make it makes me very happy! ~ two, I have to cook at least one thing every Thanksgiving. Since this year I'm not making my infamous empanadas this'll be my contribution which I'm sure will be well received by the family :) 

So here's my late night pumpkin pie journey ( and yes, lacking a mixing bowl forced me to use a pot - learning to be creative on the fly is just one of the perks of being poor, lol )

What are you favorite dishes?
Did any of you cook up something for Turkey Day?

I love this man. Here's a newer song - so beautiful. Makes me feel like a 16 year-old girl in love.

NYC Chillin' : PIANOS

So two weeks ago a good friend of mine from work invited me to hang out with him and a few other coworkers at a spot called "Pianos" on the Lower East Side.
Now, for those big city dwellers, you know as much as I do how expensive drinks can be - double the price sometimes. So trust me when I tell you that Pianos was budget friendly, ESPECIALLY for a NYC bar. It's got a $5 happy hour menu as well as $4 margaritas and $3 well beers and bottled beers (and for a corona lover like me that means a lot of lime loving times!)
In a two hour time span I stuffed my face with chipotle wings (spicy!!) a margarita and two beers (those margaritas hit you hard, lol) and I was feeling quite happy. The staff is really friendly, the atmosphere is really chill, and there's a live DJ playing a good variety of music.
After that night I was craving another visit and sure enough last week I went again! :) Might just have to turn this into a weekly event!~

Gonna run out and buy some ingredients for pumpkin pie now - not to worry, evidence of my first pie adventure will most likely be up tonight!

Dressed for change.

Thursday, November 18, 2010

Today's a pretty big deal since I've got an interview with a digital marketing agency for a community manager position (* o*)/

Feeling like a million bucks in my new suit - first suit, actually.  Oh you fancy huh?

Life after college hasn't been exactly like I planned it, but I'm glad I am able to stay positive and work through it.

And for those wondering, yes that's my apartment in the background. I really love all the lighting I get in this place :)
Unfortunately things might change soon and I'll no longer have this first apartment, but the experience has definitely taught me a lot about what I'm looking for if and when I look for another.
As Ugly Betty said "I'm not leaving [my city dream], I'm taking it with me." Damn straight muchacha.

I know it's been awhile since I've updated but best believe, this time I'm back.
