my most superficial most ever. such fun!

I rarely do beauty posts but I got my 2nd glam bag this week and a make up store in town had a big 60% off closing sale so I felt like bragging sharing with you some of the awesome products I have accumulated this week as my wallet cries itself to sleep. My mother is going to slit my throat when she see's this but...oh well. Love you, Mom.

I'll get to the glam bag first! I've had a chance to try all the products from the last glam bag I reviewed which you can read here and my favorite product I received was the Leave In Conditioner by Healthy Sexy Hair. I've been trying to not brush my hair out after the shower and putting some of this in makes my hair not so wild when its time to brush it and gives it a nice texture. I also really love the make up removing tissues because Im a lazy bitch.

This month my bag was even more awesome! I just have to say.. it is the most exciting thing ever waiting for you bag to come then ripping it open and seeing your products. 10$ really is a small price to pay for all the excitement and fun of trying the new products. I am such a girly girl this way but I am not ashamed - it makes me so happy!

Here it is! First off - love the bag, its WAY cuter than last months and I'm a big lover of pink so it made me real happy. Let's get to the fun stuff - the products! 

1) Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser by First Aid. Anything that says its going to unclog my pores and make them less noticeable I buy so when this cleanser claimed to do so I was very happy to have received it in my glam bag. I have pores that are like craters in my face - hope this helps! 

2) Plump Pout by POP Beauty. I love me some lip products. Lip stick, lip gloss, lip plumper, lip liner, lip primer, lip moisturizer - you name it, I love it. In fact I took this picture of my lip products today as I was going through my make up and this is not even all of them. Not normal. 

Anyways. Needless to say - if they send me lip stuff I will approve and I totally do. They sent me the color Fuchsia Freesia and I love bright colors, especially for the weekend and I can't wait to wear this color out asap because it is SO fun!

3) Zoya Nail Polish in Odette. Bre receives Glam Bags too and though I haven't tried this color, she was wearing it today and I love it! Super pretty color :) I totally need to paint my nails.. like last week. 

4) Falsies by J. Cat. Fake lashes - enough said. I LOVE fake lashes - I was so pumped. :)

5.) Eyetini Eye Cordial Shadow+Base in Spiced Rum. Honestly, I am not a big eyeshadow person. I love it, I just have weird eyes and Im never satisfied with the way it looks. But once in a while, after a few drinks, I decide I'l do my shadow that night and if I were going to - this would be a shade I would wear. Im not disappointed I received it but I have a million eye shadows and I use one like every 2 months so meh. But it IS super pretty! 

Pictured below are all the treats I found at the cosmetic store closing sale yesterday. Last Friday my rooommate came home with a ton of new make up and a smile on her face because she had just been t this sale. She said it was all awesome brands for 60% off with shelves of items that were $5 and $10. The broke make up lover in me squealed with joy! By the time Bre and I got there yesterday there wasn't much left but believe me - this was a GOOD thing for my wallet. 

All of the above came to $96. I know that seems like a lot to spend in a cosmetics store to people who don't go to cosmetics stores but it's really not but is IS a lot to spend when you are kinda broke. So yes, it was a baddy but I don't regret it all and when you hear what I saved.... guuuuurl. 

The first product is Bumble and Bumble's Hair Powder in Black. This stuff is like a dry shampoo that volumizes which is something I buy all the time because my hair is flat and fine and gets greasy super quickly and washing it too often just makes it worse. I have bought so many cheap, drug store dry shampoos that just do not do the trick and most leave my hair grey. Since this one is called Black I assume its for my dark ass hair and I cannot wait to try it out. 
Original Price : $43 Sale Price: $10

The 2nd product is a Go Gurl Eyelash Curler by Japonesque. I needed an eyelash curler and its for on the go which didn't really matter to me but now Im thinking its great because it will fit into a make up bag so much easier than a regular one. I figured I might as well by a nice one that Im getting for a better price and hope for the best. My lashes jut out straight and are a horror to curl so we'll see what happens with this baby! 
Original Price :$15 Sale Price:$9

The third product is a gorgeous blush by Vincent Longo that I love. I'm super into blush right now and still not mastering it but I'm trying my best. The shade is Dew Drop and it's so pretty and Im just so happy. I LOVE PRODUCTS. 
Original Price:$34 Sale Price: $5

4th is a lipstick by Besame in Chocolate Kiss - super pretty. Like I mentioned earlier, I'm a lipstick fiend (I had 6 in the store ready to buy until I caught myself.. I do NOT need 6 new lipsticks), and I couldn't resist this one. I wore it to work yesterday and its perfect for work because its super long lasting and also not too crazy haha. 
Original Price: $25 Sale Price: $5

Last but not least is the best shade ever of blush! It's called Instain (and it does stain.. its gonna take me a bit to master this stuff!) and it's in the shade Pinstripe and it's the best blush color I've ever found. I love darker berry colors and I was super pumped to find this and for so damn cheap!
Original Price: $26 Sale Price: $5

Now last but not least - the train kit, the expensive part of this purchase. The train kit I bought was something I've wanted forever - I even wrote about how badly I wanted one on my Christmas Wish List post in 2013. I didn't notice it at first because I was too busy shitting myself over the cheap products but when I saw it I knew I needed it. It was perfect -it was huge, it wasn't tacky and it was on sale from $125 down to $50. I hmm'd and haaaw'd and finally I just decided to go for it because the shitty ones at walmart are small, tacky and still at least $30 so fuck it! Plus.. this is what my dresser looked like before the train kit... a fucking train wreck. 

So I spent $96 that I really shouldn't have BUT the original price of all of these products was... drum roll please.......

I call that a deal, man. 

I haven't regretted it so far and Im super happy to have some nice products so.. we'll see how I feel in a couple of weeks when I can't afford groceries haha. 

What is the best new product you've tried lately? I love products so please share! 

Big Love,

karaoke, subway threats, douchebags and happiness.

Wow - 2014 is not my blogging year aha. I am okay with living life instead of blogging it but I definitely miss this. I promise when I need to vent (which will be soon because I have all kinds of words about the dating (or lack there of) area in my life) there will be a couple good posts for you.

My life has been consisting primarily of 3 things : friends, work and putting together my bedroom! I'm happy to say that all 3 are going great. I absolutely love my job and I have been picking up more hours which is fabulous because I am a little bit broke. The staff is great, the customers are great and the food is pgreat too and I have definitely been indulging!

I have been lucky enough to spend a bunch of time with friends when I'm not working and it's been so awesome to be able to go out and actually do something on the wekeends! Courtney, Alexa and Nevan came over last month for a night out and we had such a good time - well I did anyway ;)

In true Courtney and Bailey fashion we hopped back and forth between two bars, shaking our tail feathers and trying to stay out of trouble. Nevan disappeared on us and after the bars us ladies headed to Subway. We were hoping to get a cab but it ended up taking two hours so I was starting to get a little out of control. There were a group of guys waiting for a cab and when one pulled up I told the cutest guy that if he got in my cab I'd kill him - I literally threatened his life over a cab. While I was verbally assaulting him, Courtney took off to dibs the cab - shes my girl! Instead of turning the guy off completely though - he ended up telling me I was beautiful and I gave him my number. Destiny? No.. just drunk. Either way, we shared a cab home and I decided making out with a stranger was a good idea. Oh Bailey J. He was a good kisser though and had the most gorgeous lookers I've ever seen! (thats eyes by the way). And if you're wondering - yes, we still talk!

I've also been spending a bunch of time with my cousin Kristy. Before I moved up here we didn't really know each other that well on a personal level but now we work together and hang out outside of work and I'm so thankful to have her and that we have had this chance to have a friendship. We have too much so much fun together and I can't wait for more adventures with her!

Me and my cousins Kristy and Katie 

Then this weekend I got ditched by the POF douchebag who I let fool me once again! Ugh! Im dumb! Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, still shame on you cause you're a fucking douche. ANYWAYS. Maddy to the rescue - she came up Saturday night and her, Karl and I had a blast together and went uptown. We are such an awesome trio and while I'm not 100% on this - I'm pretty sure it was super super fun.

Also, on Thursday Rach ended up coming to town so when I was off work her, Tay, Bre and I hung out and went to karaoke. This was the day I found out I was being ditched for the weekend and it was the perfect remedy for my shitty mood! I ended up singing a duet with a guy who had seen me at karaoke the week before then contacted me on POF asking me to sing with him. I thought, 'why not'  and away we went lol. Can't forget Tay and I's awesome 'Party for 2' cover either - delicious. Life in Saint John is interesting for me to say the least. Two other guys who have messaged me on POF recognized me form the karaoke place as well - small city man.

So that is what's been up. Lately I've just realized how happy I am that I made the decision to move up here - it was an awesome choice and I am so happy. Life isn't perfect but it's good and I think it's going to get even better. I have the most amazing friends on the planet - friends who get me through any and all of the hard times and I know that I'm so so so lucky. Thank you to all my amazing friends - you have no idea how much I appreciate you!!

One last thing - big shout outs to my wonderful friend Ashley - it's her 24th birthday today!! Love you millions!!

That's it for now folks!
Big Love,
Bailey J

the one time I chugged a beer.

I do not censor anything on this blog - I say it how it is, I post what I want, it's my space. Occasionally, out of respect for people (especially ones I love) I leave names out or don't post every detail of my life because that's how I roll. Tonight I am posting something that not necessarily everyone would be okay with so I'm telling you now - if you don't like alcohol or partying-don't watch it! I am giving you the chance to back out now instead of watching this and then judging me for it. It's all in good fun but if you aren't down with it, you don't have to watch it, it's that simple.

So you're probably all familiar with or have at least heard about Nek Nominations. I was nominated, I did it and I thought I'd share it on here because I'm pretty freakin' proud of how well I did! I was a champ and I've thoroughly enjoyed taping my friends trying to do this as well as doing my own. It's been fun and if you don't like them then don't watch them. It's one beer people... one beer. Cheers.

karaoke and some POF awkiez.

It's a Saturday night and though I would love to go out and shake my booty this liver needs a rest! So I'm chilling at home, watching I love you man and catching ya'll up on my life. Honestly - I am really enjoying my life right now. I'm not making nearly enough money, my luck with men is still hellish - pretty sure my crush is plotting my demise- and laundry costs me 6$ a load but.. life is actually really good.

I moved to Saint John for something different - to have some new experiences, meet new people and start enjoying my life more. I feel I made a good decision because I've been doing all those things. I've been going out and meeting some great new people and even when Im just chilling at my apartment I'm very content with my life.

Something I've wanted to do for a while now is sing more. Karaoke isn't exactly performing but I ended up going to karaoke twice this week and singing. It's all in good fun but it's awesome to sing again even if its just being drunk and silly. Best part of my performances? Closing them with "I'm new in town and I'm single"... I wish that was a joke but..its not. I'll definitely be going more and maybe singing some more. Why not eh?

Something I am discovering though is that Saint John is way smaller than I thought. After the last two POF incidences you'd think I would've realized but yesterday I finally got it. Remember in this post when I talked about chatting up two guys who ended up being in the same room? Well I've been chatting with one of them and hes cool and I imagine we'll meet at some point but we've now officially run into each other.. like literally.

Yesterday when I was going into the liquor store I turned the corner and almost body checked him. We hadn't met yet so we both just kept going but I felt confident it was him and when he messaged me and said he thought he saw me my worst nightmare was confirmed as I looked like total shit. He still wants to hang out though so.. its all good.

Then today at work I discovered a guy I had talked to for a while, but recently snubbed me at the bar, is my coworkers brother! When I met her I instantly wondered if they could be related as they looked so much alike and their names were similar which is a weird reason I know. Today I asked what her brothers name was and it was him and I let her in on it. We had a good laugh and I told her to tell him I said hi - small world for sure.

So that's my life right now - work, fun and awkward POF stories. I could write a freakin' book on this I swear! But it's funny, entertaining and I'm loving every minute of it.

Big Love,

Ps. I shared this on my facebook today because it's just so awesome and true and me.
