Sassy Satin Pants

ootd

Hi there friends! It has been a while, and I am trying to get things done on the blog which will be up soon over at http://www.glamorousandgeeky.com. I have been wanting to get things changed for a while there, the blog name and such. It was time friends. Time. I made the new years resolution to A. get some shorts(still have not done) and B. To get the blog changed to the new name etc. And I am so excited. SO excited! And while waiting on the new blog to be finished being ported over to the new URL. I am going to write here and just transfer things myself. Because I am an Elvish Wizard like that.

Hehe.

Anyways, going back through my pictures and blog posts of old posts( we are talking since 2009) I have learned something. My mad photo skillz have gotten WAAAAYY better and my writing too. Isn’t awesome, and I saw in my old as hell horrible posts that I found my direction and grew once I found it. Went from a collage site mostly posting things like Gucci and such things I probably wouldn’t own for a long time(I own some Gucci clothes now and DVF and Tibi,by shopping really smart and thanks to sites like The Real Real)

But, yeah. My site started to grow and I started to get comments. When I first started blogging I honest to gawd had no idea what to write about, what to do, how to do it. And no one being supportive AT ALL. It was me, myself, and I. And since my blog has started to gain some momentum, I am starting to get some family behind it and such. This was more to me than just a hobby,

It was a life saver.

I started to take my blog more seriously after I had my little. I was really, really depressed. I have that tendency anyways. We wont go into that right now. But, I had bad post partum. I even blogged about it on Blogher and was told in the comments that it was in my head. ACTUALLY, no. It isn’t, it is a chemical imbalance in the brain caused by hormones and influxes.

I also read PROblogger on my Kindle and learned a lot. And then started to research how to blog better. And so here we are today.  A long cry almost from the start. I then was using my crappy phone and Ipad for blog photos. I had no SAM(my tripod) and no remote, and candy camera app. It was something I am happy I improved upon.Once I got better pictures and really asserted myself I got more sponsors. (i still use a camera phone. But let me be honest, some of the phones are so high tech they can beat out the cheapest DSLR in quality.I still want a Nikon or Cannon DSLR) I named my blog Gofashiondeals for the worst reasons and that is there was no reason. No thought to it. I just did it because I felt pressure to make a name. And I kicked my own butt for it since. Until now.

20170402_143412

I made the decision that 2017 I would revamp the blog to be more reflective of me and my weirdness. AKA my personality. I am a GAMER, I am a HUGE Fashionista, I am a MOM, I am a WIFE, I am obsessed with MAKEUP, and I am a big BOOK WORM. I am all of those things and I do it all glamorously. And that is why the new blog is Glamorous and Geeky. Because I am. I am glamorous and geeky. And I am hoping that the site is up soon, because this sucks. MY hubby suggested I blog on this Temp thing here until then because I wont stop complaining about the time. My blog had a lot of content….and uh…yeah. HAHAHA

SO yeah…I am looking forward to this. And I hope you all are too!

Well, everyone’s been talking about their white pants.Their white pants, got their white pants on.

OK, so this is actually the only pair of white pants I own, weird I know. I love the way white pants look. However, with a 4yr old, they are a dirt and dirty hands magnet. For instance he wiped his Doritos laden hands on my pants later in the day. Yup. Nice. And since I too am also a klutz it is a reason why I never wear white pants. I have white skirts, and i fear for them every time I wear them. #momlife That is just how it is I guess. Right?

OOTD gofashiondeals

So what made me bring them back out? Well, since my little is in school now I figured why not?! SO I wore these cute Target white cropped skinnies with my Express shirt that I have had for ages just always wear it tucked in with a maxi or or midi skirt. Like in this post here . So yup. And pulled out my old DOONEY  . But alas, his school day was cut short as he was not himself. Sometimes meltdowns happen and so it really takes it out of the kid. But, this turned out to be later he is sick AGAIN. There were several littles not in class for being sick. Got to love that they share Everything. Right? NO….somethings they SHOULD not share. Germs..ugh. Oh well. And so he got home and I made him some food for a snack and my pants became victim of little.

That is OK, I am used to it and that my friends is why there is Spray n’ wash.

Things were alright. Except the lack of sleep last night do to new big boy bed and coughing, sneezing, snotty nose, and grumpy child.

Poor kid and poor mama.

What can you do, I just let him sleep in the bed after the 4th time of getting into bed with us after hearing how he was breathing.

Is that bad?

Oh that boho charm, 2 OOTD.

justfab romper and breckelles shoes
So it feels a lot like summer has hit, it is March still and already it feels like the middle of June. It was 90 degrees today in Orlando! WHAT?! How crazy, well I guess it is Florida and all.
Today’s outfit post is more of a what I wore what I wore. Since yesterday, I had to change right after I wore this. Ill tell you what happened after I pause my Mass Effect Andromeda AND tell you about this outfit.

OK, so this amazing blue bell sleeve romper is from Justfab, which I wore here and these awesome Breckelle’s gladiators as well as my NEW Rocksbox set. Kendra Scott brought out the new gold glass collection and I was lucky to get the set. YAY!

I love the sleeves of this romper and that it will be so flattering on so many different people. The golden necklace is perfect and the sandals are just so SUMMER!

They have a zip up back and that is something I really love! I got these babies on Nordstrom about a year to 2 years ago and am so happy I did. But, I will be honest at first I did NOT know how to style them. WHAT?! no really I had not a clue. Wow. Blogger blunder right there.

Oh well, after a lot of Pinterest browsing. I figured it out. And here we are.

justfab boho romper
SO, what was I talking about earlier?? Well, let me just say that yesterday was a series of unfortunate events. Just one after another. And the seriousness of them worse and worse. Of which I am not entirely sure I can actually talk about. Since I didn’t exactly witness the crash just the aftermath and let me say, I had no idea people could bleed like that. Just things that would haunt you and that is all I am going to say because I was able to finally eat. SO, back to the more light hearted bit, after shooting this outfit, I got home and before going in the house I took my shoes off, which I have been doing a lot lately as my cats like to sit by the garage door waiting on me. And I have stepped on them. So, I took these off. Walked in the door. and WHOOP I slipped on cat mess(pee yuck) and fell in my cute ass romper on my ass. YES. how fun, luckily my head hit my handbag. I have travertine tiles…so,that would have been bad.

The cat mess, soaked my romper and so I had to take a quick shower because GROSS and then get the romper in the wash ASAP. So I changed into this….

Target top mango pants ALDO shoes

I love these ALDO shoes so much and these MANGO pants. Just the most comfy things ever and after that slip I needed it. OH and Aunt Irma visited so there was that too, hello cramps! (aunt Irma is from IT Crowd,go NETFLIX it now! OH my god hilarious show is hilarious!

Here is a clip so you know what I am talking about now GO WATCH THE SERIES!

all black OOTD

I mean both were great outfits. But this was supposed to be on the blog today as today’s outfit of the day and yesterday’s outfit of the day never made it so it is now on it today! OH it is What I wore Wednesday!

Anways, that is why nothing got done on the blog yesterday. The tutorial was pre scheduled and it made me realize I really need to do that more often. You can see that post here and the original haul video here

Cat Eyes so Too faced

Too faced cat eyes

SO the other day I posted my Too Faced HAUL . And so I wanted to share the look I created with the palette.

I normally do not do things like this as I do not have the ring lights and blah.

So, start with a great primer for shadow. I like the Milani eye shadow primer in Nude.

Makeup tutorialI apply this all over the lid. It is amazing!

We are doing the second row shadows. The first color is Meow. I applied that all over my eye, brow and lid.

I make the most hilarious faces( i am sorry) Not so glamorous.

Then I used Pussy Cat which is a pretty pale lavender color with lots of shimmer.

SO much purple

Then lastly the Jungle love which I put in the crease and corner in the eye. I make a c shape in the corner to bring the focus in.

You can really see the difference in how it tops off the eye look.

I normally do eyeliner and stuff last because I do use a setting powder.

The blush is pacifica

And highlight the tops of the cheekies.

My fave eye liner pen. RODIAL! UGH this thing is amazing!

I use a purple eye liner ALL the time under my eye, it makes the blue in my eyes pop more. And sometimes the green.

I don’t do a heavy eyebrow because I will end up with brows like Thranduil with the blonde hair and all.

THen after a lash primer I use this mascara! I love Too Faced Better than Sex mascara

And that is it friends

The Too Faced Haul.

Too Faced haul

Hey there friends I finally got my Too Faced order in! And I was so excited to share it! SO here is another unboxing video of my Too faced haul!!!! I hope you enjoy! A full post of a look I created with the products will be up on the blog this week! YAY!

 

You can see my original wish list in this post here I love Too Faced and let me tell you this was worth the irritating wait! The compact foundation was worth it alone.

Too Faced Cocoa compact makeup

As I said in the youtube video, I needed to switch from my Lancôme Dual Finish to something else, as Lancôme was not offering the no fragrance powder. Dual finish was a powder I used for YEARS and then I couldn’t anymore. My skin would get irritated and itchy. So I did some research and found this one by Too Faced may be good. And so far it is! I know immediately is a powder will work or not, or a foundation will. Having sensitive skin is a huge problem that way. And So, I took a gamble and bought this without matching. And it worked out(thank GAWD) I am happy with my long anticipated order!

I am pretty pleased with everything and it all worked out in the end. Still, better communication would be nice*cough cough*.

C/meo sale the shopping edit.

I love C/MEO Collective. It an Australian brand that makes such beautiful clothes. Modern and gorgeous. Not only that the clothes work so well for FL! I first learned about C/MEO thanks to IFCHIC and I got my first pieces. And wow, just wow. A perfect black dress and black and white skirt that is always, and I do mean always on repeat.And right now many of these pieces by this amazing brand are on sale! SO, I chose some of my faves! I have a couple of their pieces and I am really wanting to add more. The quality of C/MEO collective is exquisite. All well made, and the pieces last. Soft fabrics and the structure in the pieces make C/MEO a brand to want and have!

Shop the faves from the sale! That blue dress is under$40!

Exhaustion and a cant stop wont stop attitude.

gofashiondealsIt is no secret that I have been a bit tired as of late. I have a kid that just won’t sleep through the night anymore. One reason being he has a cough that comes during the night (allergies) and 2 I just don’t know why . I am tired. Exhausted. And yet, I still am trying to find time to get shit done. Blog shit, house shit,  sleep shit. That is over rated by now the sleeping bit. But this whole lack of that is taking its toll. The dark circles that no amount of magical concealer will fix. Praise God for photoshop (I only use it for lightening, darkening, and dark circles ok and bad pimples) it can do what concealer cant. So, why not take a break, you may ask yourself.

Gofashiondeals

Because of that can’t stop won’t stop attitude. I have to get all my shit done, friends, all of it. And this blog is my oasis, just as much as my Xbox is. Although the stress from this is a different kind of stress. It is the stress I like the challenging kind, the creative kind. It’s good.

Lately though I have been feeling slacking in that dept. I spend a lot of time a doctor offices with my little. As a parent with a child who has ASD, it is sometimes hard for us to remember us. Take time for us. And I unfortunately  am also the kind that just can not sit still, can not do nothing. Even dead tired I have to get the dishes done, even dead tired I have to get the little to his appointments. That can’t stop won’t stop attitude keeps me a float as much as my coffee does. And as far as the blog is concerned it is my business. My creation (even though it will be changed in future.we are working on the details.) . I am still trying to get traffic back up from when I was sick for most of January.ugh.

So I figured I would post a bit of what’s going on. A bit of nonsense.  Really is this post going anywhere or am I rambling like an exhausted weirdo?

Maybe

.or

Maybe not.
