Whoa… I feel like I have been M.I.A. from the blogosphere – gosh, sometimes having a job really gets in the way of blogging!
Well, guess what, I’m getting old – yeah, it’s my birthday very soon and one of my presents to myself is a mini-vacation to the BEACH!! So excited, haven’t been in a few years, plus I’m actually taking some vacation days from work! I haven’t taken any vacation days, whatsoever, since I have been working at my current job.
I’m not sure how the company will survive without me, BUT I don’t care ’cause I’ll be chillin’ at the beach!
So, since I’m obviously a make-up junkie, I thought I’d share some of the things I’ll be taking with me.
