High Five For Friday!!!!

Hello beauties!! It is 10:06pm right now on Friday night and I just realized I need to do my post! Does that speak at all about how busy I have been? That has never happened before and in 2 hours I would have had to just skip this week because I couldn't bring myself to upload a Friday post on Saturday. {You can call me weird, it's ok!} So without further rambling that is just wasting valuable minutes, here has been my week in a nutshell!!
One|| This whole week I have been doing mad, crazy, maybe not all so needed, online shopping! It is not very often I can pick up a bunch of high end beauty products without any guilt. When the time comes though I go CRAZY! The thing I love most is watching my email, checking it every couple of hours everyday to see what has shipped, or tracking info on what I should receive that day. That is the most thrilling part, even more than finding stuff to buy. That is a struggle trying to think of all the things I have wanted recently so I spent a lot of time on YouTube watching my fav people {WhatWouldLizzyDoVadIsRadMelissa RaymondShadesOfKassieKelly StrackKellylovesbeauty1Sadiekins21, Nicole GuerrieroSorry I got a little carried away, I wanted to say more people and not leave anyone out but I would have been here forever.
All those beautiful women helped me to achieve my shopping cart each and every transaction!
Like I said, I went above and beyond. Keeping in mind that my life revolves around Rite-Aid and there are no department stores here, no MAC, no Ulta, no Sephora. Nothing at all. So I never get to sample anything I just take everyone's word for it :) I want to do a separate post on things that I have bought thus far so I won't go into too much detail. I will say that I repurchased Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo foundation but in the next shade {54} because that foundation is incredible and is everything I look for in a foundation. I also bought MUFE Matte Velvet +, MAC Studio Fix, NARS radiant concealer, Laura Mercier secret brightening powder, Benefit's Hoola {never tried before and am in love with first application}, and I will just say I purchased every single one of Real Techniques brushes!

Enough of this topic, more info soon to come!! 
Two|| My son is getting too old and I have been watching him and I see my little boy slowly maturing into the adult he is going to become. He is only 11 {12 in August} but it just amazes me some of the things he does. For example I was upstairs getting ready the other day, probably for work, and the two babies {4 and 2} were downstairs jumping on a big box that has metal desks in it {that still are not together from Christmas} and I heard him go downstairs and yell at them and made them get off. Had it been a year or two ago he would have just walked right by them and thought to himself, "It's not my job to babysit them". It's little things like that that have been grabbing my attention. I brought him and his two friends to the movies Wednesday night to watch the LEGO movie. Now I am scared about girlfriends. Which I know he has had. He is addicted to his iPod more than I am my phone and if you knew me, you'd know that is pretty impossible to beat! My first baby and only boy is going to grow into a great man! :)
Three|| There has been something weighing on my mind a great deal this week. Our dog Haylee. We got her when she was 9 weeks only and today she is 4 1/2 months. So it's been a decent amount of time. Getting her in November, dead center of winter, was a bad idea I heard, after it was too late. Training her has been a undescribable nightmare and still is. She goes to the bathroom inside sooo much and it is driving me literally insane. I cannot take much more of it. She goes outside, loves it out there. She loves going for walks and hates coming back in when walks are done. Yet, no matter how long we are out there for, she comes in and immediately goes to the bathroom. She goes outside too, and gets praised when she does. I just don;t understand it. Then, when she goes inside she will take what should be one pee and make it seven different little puddles of pee scattered everywhere. She could literally pee, you get a towel, and she is peeing again. But it's not only that. In my eyes she is mean to the babies. The boyfriend says no she is just playing. Well she doesn't 'just play' with us, why just the babies? The two older kids and boyfriend have become real attached already and I don't know what to do. I have never had a dog before Haylee so everything is brand new to me, and I am stressing out and not liking it!
Four|| I hate my job. I never used to. I used to love going to work everyday. Loved the 20 minute right to and from. Not anymore. I work at the bank in our local Casino. Busy, steady, robot work. Mistakes are not taken kindly. It's millions of dollars you are working with a day. Your mind has to be with it every single second. I have been there 4 years, I have the emotional stability of it down pat. What pisses me off is their consequences. People are human, not robots. Everyone makes mistakes. It's normal. Here is the issue I have. The rules, like I said, are hard core. Something as easy as forgetting a decimal or hitting a 1 instead of 2, could mean your job. Any slight mistake, if the cashiers forget to give a patron {customer} a penny, you are marked up. If that happens twice, you are suspended for 3 days with no pay. Suspended. If you here that word, you think like normal people and think oh no, that is so bad, you are going to lose your job. That's not the case. You could be suspended 40 times, doesn't mean your job is on the line. That is their punishment. You don't get a verbal or written warning, you expect suspension. I have been suspended about 6 times now. The first time I was so scared it was crazy, I think I cried for the 3 days I was off. Then I learned the rules and learned that's just the consequence for everyone. suspension happens so much there, you now look forward to it to have a few days out of that place. That is sad. You try to enjoy your days off as much as possible and don;t take it to heart but when your paycheck rolls around, you feel the impact of $300 missing. I am on suspension right now. Wanna know why? I'd be glad to tell you. Because I called in yesterday. Because I was sick. Because I was puking. I have been there four years and have called in about 2-3 times. Average once a year. I couldn't believe it myself. And while you are getting and signing your life away that you know and understand if you are caught on property during suspension you may get arrested and blah blah there are 3 people in the room {2 female witnesses} and it was then that they brought up "and also because you were 1 minute late on such and such date", I said {out loud by accident} you have got to be kidding me right now. 
Sorry, had to vent about that. Will shut up now :) Well, after #5!
Five|| I wish dinner in my house was like it used to be when i was little. My Mom used to work {still does} in a hospital the next town over, as a xray tech. She would work 8-4 come home and cook dinner. Sometimes she would call and have me take stuff out, or cut up cheese needed for mac and cheese, etc. Stuff I always took for granted and now look back on in admiration. I am not a cook. At all. I hate cooking. I eat some meats just chicken. I do not know how to cook it unless it is on the grill. I can cook simple things like grilled cheese, alfredo and mac and cheese. That's it. Before you get over worked, my kids do eat, but nothing fancy like I used to. Mom always had some kind of meat, no matter what. We would sit down at the table and she would tell me and Dad about her day while we sat there each and every night and nodded our heads. There was always so much drama where she works apparently. We would always say to everyone, ya Mom had a long story at dinner last night. Dad and I would joke about it A LOT. I miss that so much. Me and the kids sometimes sit at the table, not often at all though. I usually don't eat. I always have other things to do and dishes to wash. I do sit down sometimes though and the kids absolutely love it when I sit at the table. Their eyes brighten up with such an amazing glow and my heart melts. Daddy never ever ever sits at the table. I;m pretty sure he never has. Oh no, at family gatherings {xmas, thanksgiving} he sometimes does, but otherwise he eats his food at his computer... that a whole post on its own. How about you? Do you all eat at the dinner table for dinner? Did you grow up doing things you wish you could continue?
That is all I have so far beauties I hope I did not make you bored out of your skulls, I did not have a real interesting week. It has been emotionally draining and I cant wait to breathe again! 
Until next time,

Hello beauties! Happy Friday Eve :)

I am in a deep rut and totally confusing myself!! I had this bright idea to start a blog on wordpress for two reasons.
{One} I have been told numerous times that it is better and easier {ha!} than blogger. I will admit it looks a lot nicer and I love the fact of hundreds of themes to choose from.
{Two} Because you can buy your domain. I think. I don't friggon know. I was looking to create my own website that didn't involve a address.

But after working so hard one night to get wordpress up and going, I started wondering if I was doing the right thing. I have so many people reading and following this blog, would they {you} really take a new link from here and follow me somewhere else instead? In my head, I think no. And I have worked so hard on this blog and have put so much thought and time into my posts.

How about you help me decide! I am going to leave the link to my wordpress and go check it out. Leave me a comment either here or there letting me know which one looks better to you! Again, wordpress is a few days fresh so I think I have 1 or 2 posts. 

Come and help me out woman!! Yes YOU! :)

Until next time, 

Tasha - XOXX

Hey beauties I am sorry that I have been missing and havent done a blog in so so long! I just wanted to update where I have been and where I am going.

Life has been super busy lately. I have felt like a non stop machine. Between just regular ordinary events and then throwing money my way {tax return} I have been so busy! I bought some new stuff for the house, new makeup items, clothes for the family and myself. There is still quite a bit of shopping to be done. I am going to sit down and take pics of what I can and just write down what I can't get pics of, so I can show you what I have been busy buying! I am happy with this years turn out and am glad it's not all gone and wasted.

I have been trying so hard to get my own blog site built. But I obviously don't know what I am doing. I thought I was cool and went to, purchased a website for a year, but after spending so much time on it, I think it is for businesses. Not blogging. So that is a fail. I am however, trying to move out of this blog and create a new one, to enhance the new me. I have tomorrow {2/18} off and there will not be any kids here for most of the morning so I am going to spend a good chunk of time between tonight and tomorrow to figure something out. My blog brain is getting antsy.

I hope you all have an amazing day and stick around, I will be back in no time! :_

Youtubers, Bloggers, someone please help me!!

Hello Beauties!!!!

Thank you for at least checking this out in an attempt to help me!

Ok, so here is the thing. Tomorrow {less than 24 hours away} I am going to be purchasing a laptop. Unfortunantly I do not have an apple store around here nor anyone that sells computers who I would trust for an opinion. I do not know what to get. All I use it for is blogging, watching youtube and searching the internet. I seen a few things of interest : 

1- Chromebook. Looks nice but I don't know if it would be enough for me. And would it last me awhile??

2 - Macbook air/pro. Expensive but would last awhile. Would that be too much for me though??

I appreciate any input or suggestions you have and I thank you soo much!!
