I don't normally share too much of my music favorites but today I was excited to find out the beautiful Kat Von D (who I've always admired) married the singer of the group Prayers Rafael Reyes (Leafar Seyer).
My morning began like any other on this particular day. I went on my Facebook and scrolled through my feed. Out of no where there was an ad for The Damned playing at the House of Blues in Anaheim later in the evening.
First and foremost The Damned is one of those timeless bands that foreshadow all other bands. Like they're there and there not going no where.
I casually mentioned it to my husband knowing there was no chance in hell of us going. Well surprisingly he seemed immensely interested.
Like he kept pushing that I should buy tickets.
I had doubt because we don't have a babysitter and that pretty much kills us ever going out by ourselves.
So reluctantly I purchased 2 tickets for that evening show.
As the time was nearing I was getting anxious because I knew his mom is wishy washy on keeping her word but at the last minute she agreed to watch our kids.
So we got ourselves ready and took off. Like I mentioned in the title I have not been to a concert in years! Since like 2006...
We got there in time to watch the opening act. Got a couple drinks. Went to the main floor. After an hour or so the band finally came out.
Let's just say it was pretty amazing! Like damn, Dave Vanian is really timeless. And the Captain, pure talent on the guitar!
The crowd was alright for a bunch of older rockers and some young punks trying to mosh pit.
I got stepped on by a big guy getting kicked out by security.
The bartender was a bit of a pompous jerk.
The best part was that we were only a few people away from the front stage. I could clearly see the band play. How many times can you say that with a general admission ticket to see a big band play? Rarely, if ever. But over all the night was great. I can now say I got to see one of my favorite bands live💜. It'll always be one of my favorite memories!
I have been a fallower of the creator of Sugarpill for a long time!!! Since Amy used to sell her clothes on eBay that she tailored and made. Super creative and beautiful indeed she is!
I have been wanting her Sugarpill eyeshadows forever, but have not bought any yet🙁 dunno why, just haven't.
There's been all this hype about her liquid lipstick in the color Trinket. It's now on it's 3rd batch and from what I've heard two of the batches are a bit different from each other. I wouldn't know since I just bought it 2 wks back when I was emailed that it was restocked for the 3rd batch. Jumped on it and bought it! Here's my review on it-
Loved the outer packaging and the free sticker is super cute.
Didn't get the cute cartoon on the tube like the first batch sadly but still cute.
Swatch on my hand. I'm NC40 in MAC. Early Tan in Colorstay.
Without flash you can see the beautiful gold glitter on it once it's dried.
With flash on the color looks very washed out and does not compliment my skintone at all. I kinda don't like it on me. It's one of those shades that looks good on fair girls with pink undertones and not warm.undertones. I don't want to mess with the formula but I kinda want to add a little coral liquid lipstick to warm it up.
Not worth 20 bucks. Doesn't look good on my skin tone. Awesome staying formula with cool glitter but not digging the mauviness, not warm.enough for me.
I got to run a Halloween 5k this weekend in Whittier. Runners got the chance to dress up in costumes for a chance to win awards.
(My costume, tribute to Jack Skellington)
I didn't win any awards other than the medal itself that was handed out to all the runners.
I was hoping to place atleast 3rd in my age division but I didn't.
I was surprised to discover that your literally running up a hill half of the run. So for about a mile and a half I was dragging myself to just try to get to a mile mark. It was brutal but somehow I finished at about 38 minutes. Will I ever run it again? Probably not. I really dislike running hills, period.
(The tasty breakfast)
It was a family friendly atmosphere though and I did enjoy that aspect of it.
After the race they served the runners a pancake breakfast. That was fun too.
Here are some of my favorite costume prize winners.
Here's the link incase anyone's interested for next year.
Alot of people want to side with or against Jeffree Star, but I don't want to talk about that. His personal life choices are his own. We all make mistakes in our pasts, so I can't say anything about his.
Now let's get on with this review post!
My first item that I bought was the Beauty Killer Pallete. I fell for the hype and bought the 2nd batch after the first batch one sold out. Is it worth the price? Yes. You get a huge amount of product for a fourth of the price of individual designer name eyeshadows.
The pigment on all the colors are 5/5. You will get your money's worth out of every eyeshadow in the entire pallete. I barely swatched and the color came out from what you see in pan.
Diversity in the shades. There are neutrals, brights, shimmery, glittery, and matte. All the above is in there. You can create so many looks with just one pallete. Imagine all the other looks once you add eyeshadows with it you already own?!
I got to be in my first art show two weeks ago in Riverside. I had never been to that city before so needless to say it took us a long time to drive there during rush hour.
And finding the actual venue was a disaster on it's own. I asked some lady if she knew the address. She pointed me in the opposite direction of the building when it was literally across that pathway. FML.
We got there an hour and a half late from when I was suppose to be there to set up my piece😕😖
They weren't very happy. But hey, I made it! Better late then never🙃
Here's some pics of the event. It was very Nightmare before Christmas inspired.

Overall it was a new experience in a different city with a different crowd.
