Outside My Beauty Bubble (1)

Hello, blogosphere! No, I haven’t kicked the bucket – it is 5:04 AM as I type this sentence, and I’m just going to provide a quick TL;DR version as to why I have pretty much fallen off the face of the blogosphere.

1. Quit my job as a Pharm Tech almost a month ago. Only reason why I have “free” time to even blog.

2. Left the US of A to go back to the Philippines, and boy, did I get culture shocked. Also, this tidbit is what led to the title of this (first of ???) blog entry.

3. Family emergency. Grandpappy got hospitalized right after we flew back in, so guess who’s pretty much on caretaker duty? No, the first two guesses don’t count. And yes, these all happened in this order.

IT’S FINALLY HERE! IMATS AT NYC!

I’ve been looking forward to this weekend since last year – there are some newcomers coming in and my go to regulars are back to take another crack at my poor wallet.

Deets to follow. DEETS! πŸ˜‚

First Post 2018

*proceeds to duck from flying vegetables* Okay, okay. I have been out of the scene for quite some time, but hear me out.

I made quite a big change in September of last year – I switched jobs and I also moved. This meant a whole lotta things, not the least of which are the following:Β  Continue reading “First Post 2018”

A Quick Life Update

Hi Beautiful Blossoms! I have a bit of downtime with my extra work shift so I figured I’d check in to see what was the last thing I wrote here.Β And it was a pretty dark entry, especially with what happened when it was written.

Today’s post has a bit more cheer: I managed to pass my ExCPT exam, which means I can officially say that I am a CERTIFIED PHARMACY TECHNICIAN. I miraculously survived the exam (I can’t begin to describe how severely uninformed I was as to what was going to be on the exam) and I applied for a Pharmacy Technician position in Walgreens. Now, from my previous experience with CVS, I was expecting to not hear from them for some time after I sent my initial application.

Next thing I know, I get a call from one that I applied to and they want me to come in for an interview this Wednesday. I’m still in a somewhat state of disbelief that the response time was so quick. But here’s to seeing what will happen.

As far as makeup updates go, I’m going to write an entry regarding 2 lip products that have become my go-to these past few days: e.l.f’s Beautifully Bare Lipstick in A Touch of Blush and Laura Mercier DS in Devotion. One was a complete chance while the other got eyed strictly by color and turned out to be a damn good bet. Pics will be hosted on the Insta account for space and bandwidth purposes.

I’m looking forward to blogging post work tonight!
