Up & Down #5 / A Piece of Me… in August 2010

Wow, can you believe that it is already August?  I haven’t gone on summer vacation yet!  I hope everyone is enjoying summer!

Here are my Ups & Downs for this month!

– Sonia Kashuk Flat Top Brush

I haven’t been able to post this yet, but Sarah kindly sent this to me!  It is the BEST foundation brush for me so far.  I’ll review this soon!

– Arubian Coral Mica eyeshadow from Coastal Scents

Blair kindly sent me a sample of this, which I pressed.

My go-to everyday eyeshadow right now!  It is actually much pinker than it appears in this picture.

– booking my trip to London and Manchester!  
I’ll be there in mid-September.  Please let me know if you would like a meetup!
– Being incredibly exhausted due to the heat.  
On the plus side, it has forced me to go home earlier since I don’t want to fall asleep while driving!
– Food spoiling easily, even in the refrigerator.   
Since I only go shopping once a week, I run out of things to eat by Fridays!


It’s the time of the month to join Notes from the Toothfairy in A Piece of Me!

This month…
I like: that I realized I’ve grown a lot stronger than I thought I was.  I WILL get through this. 

I don’t like: that I’m exhausted all the time

I want you to know: this month, I’ve realized more than ever how kind and generous blogger girls are.  THANK YOU for lending me an ear, for giving me a hug, for comforting me when I spent so many days depressed.  I don’t know what I would have done without all of you!

I’ve planned: YES I’ve booked my tickets to Hawaii & London!  But I haven’t found hotels yet (except for London)!!!

I want to say to someone special: BIG HUGS!!!

I’ve ranted so much on twitter that I had a few big changes in my life recently.  It was really hard on me for a little while.  Surprisingly, after a week or two, it got a lot easier.  I was seriously down for that week, and then it wasn’t so bad.  I have all my wonderful blogger girls to thank for that!!

How was your July?
xoxo, K

    Do you have MAC Bell-Bottom blue piggies? when/if you come to Tokyo – i would love to pass them to you – i think you will give them a happy home?! I have never used it lol – guess Im not a pigment person..

  2. i totally agree, july went by super fast! I actually didn’t even realize it’s the end of july until about this weekend hit…sad πŸ™ yay for the London and Hawaii trips!!! Super excited for you πŸ™‚ hehehe. Hope August is a better month for you hun, *big bear hugssss*

  3. Isn’t the heat awful?! I don’t like it either. I hope that you’re feeling better soon. It gets tiring being tired. LOL! I’ve never used micas before. I’m also impressed by all of you who can press them into pan shadows.

    Looking forward to your Hawaii visit. What kind of hotel are you looking for? My friend stays in a no frills hotel here in Hawaii. I can give you contact info if you want.


  4. I completely agree with you not liking the heat/exhaustion caused by it! I haven’t wanted to go outside for days because of it and the last two days I had headaches when I woke up, so not cool. I am envious of your future travel!

  5. Big Hugs! I hope the weather will cool down soon. I like to shop for a week worth of grocery too. it’s so much more convenient. Yay for vacation! You totally deserve vacations!

  6. I can’t wait to see the review on the SK brush..always on the hunt for a good foundation brush!

    I know what you mean about being exhausted all the time. I work in an un-air conditioned class room and by 10 o’clock I’m wiped out!
