RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

welcome back to the junk drawer of random beauty thoughts and musings. it has been nearly a year, so i think it is time for a rew RT thread ! 

 

when i'm doing my makeup in the morning, my dog sometimes throws a fit until i move his food bowl over to where i'm sitting. i'm certainly not the diva in our relationship.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Eell. I guess his crew just tweeted that the show is cancelled so no need to envy. @jemly

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Smiley Sad I'm so sorry your show got cancelled. I was never a huge Peter Murphy fan myself but when I was a young pup in summer theater my crush wore a Peter Murphy t-shirt constantly so I went and bought a bunch of Peter Murphy and Bauhaus tapes (haha yes, TAPES!). It didn't make him become my boyfriend (though we are Facebook friends even now over 20 years later) but I do think every young alternative kid's library should include a little Bauhaus, so I'm grateful. 

 

I hope your show gets rescheduled soon!!!

My heart is BROKEN for you @Blackwhiskey Smiley Sad

 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

It's basically the only great thing that was going to happen to me for days to come, not looking forward to next week. This would not have only meant meeting the great Peter Murphy, but the energy I would've received from that show would've helped me survive the next two weeks. What a pity, nothing happened, no rain, no harsh winds. I guess they just didn't want an open venue due to vocal reasons? Or maybe it would've been too hot? Who knows. 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Hahaha. Im still debating what to do. I usually teasr my hair when going out but idk. Im gonna do a light wash of brown with plum in the eyes eith eyelinereyeliner and a nude lip.i hope i can yake a good shot. 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I was working a seasonal temporary job. I knew I would be let go this month, but I got the news two days after I worked through text just saying I was "dropped". They could had just told me the last day I was working that I was no longer needed. I heard through the grapevine about it all too. C'est la vie....

I gotta pick up my second to last paycheck this friday and goddammit, I'm determine to use my employee discount at NM. It's 30% off everything  most items. I'm thinking "treat yo self". 

 

Edit: Thank you ladies for your support <3 It made me feel 10x better and my worries felt lighter after venting. I hope this year for all of you, everyone, to be better and brighter! Also, hope there's some great beauty deals/steals along the way Smiley Wink

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

That really sucks...especially through text! Doesn't exactly scream professionalism. I hope you find something else quickly. Smiley Happy

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Thanks! I hope to find something soon too @Asche 

 

When I got the text, I just thought "is this how a break-up over text message feels like"? I had a good laugh over it.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Unfortunately, that sounds about right for retail. :\ When I worked a seasonal job, I don't remember how much notice they gave, but it was pretty sudden. At least it was an in-person talk, though! A text is pretty messed up.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I guess on the bright side, now I know what to expect from seasonal temp job @LolliLove

 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I hope you can find new job soon. 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Thanks @kavavisa

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Aww I'm sorry to hear that, @lisainprogress. What am awful way for them to tell you. Your hard work and effort deserves much more than that! Yes to the spoiler, I agree!

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Awww - I am so sorry to hear this @lisainprogress. Smiley Sad

 

What a bummer about the way they communicated, too! I hope this means that something even more amazing is coming your way, girl!

 

(I'm hearting this out of support, not because it is good news).

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Thank you for your kind words and support @Tamara76

 

There was always a lack of communicate at work, many of us kind of hated that.

 

 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Aw @lisainprogress, so sorry to hear that!  Even if it was expected, it still sucks; they could've at least thanked you for your service.  You were too good for them anyway!  I'm sure you're bound to land something 10x better soon Heart

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I wish they had been courteous about it, which is the only reason why I'm irritated. Also the fact that I had to text first to figure out if I was working or not. Had I not done that, who knows when I would had been told.

 

Thank you for your kind words @ZombieMetroAnt Now that I'm free (for now) I can stalk the board again and get to writing that sitcom based on my work Smiley Wink

 

 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I would totally watch that @lisainprogress

(I hearted this for the spoiler, not for the way you were let go!)

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I asked for the discount a good handful of times, but always too lazy/tired to adventure to NM after work (it's probably a good hour away). I wished they would just give me a one-time use or temporary code to use online, it would save me the trouble.

 

Also, I realized while putting together beauty orders that I need a good SA because some of them would give samples out like nothing! Especially the La Mer or Jo Malone stuff. 

 

And can anyone confirm this, but apparently NM price matches?? There was a Tom Ford lip and boy lipstick purchase for only $21

 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I dragged my fiancé to Sephora yesterday because I wanted to get a better look at the new iridescent train case in "Frosted Light." (Just a quick pic for those who don't have a Sephora near them. You can even glimpse one of the makeup bags on the bottom right):

Without missing a beat, my fiancé said: I'll get you a tackle box. It's kind of the same thing. It'll have fish on it.

 

Definitely not the same O.O
