Queers & Steers?

Clancy and I recently embarked on a huge journey.  Clancy came to live with me nearly six months to the day when he came home and informed me that we would be moving to Dallas.  I was very excited.  Since he had come to Ohio, I had told him I wasn't a fan of the Buckeye state, and would be happy to move whenever an opportunity arose.  He had said that he was sick of moving and wanted to stay for a while.  However, that tone quickly changed once Clancy found what Cincinnati had to offer.

What do I mean by that?  Don't ever move to Cincinnati, Ohio without some sort of huge monetary bonus being involved.  You need that bonus to make it worthwhile.  Clancy's bonus was my love, but my love wasn't conditional, and will follow him all over the country/world/etc.

Our move was fast and sloppy.  Clancy was given one week to get to Dallas, with there only being a three day window between his last day in Cincinnati and his first day in Dallas.  He left first and found us a temporary rental while I sold things in Ohio and packed up a truckload and headed to Dallas with my mom, sister and niece, as well as big, stupid Megatron.  Fourteen hours later, we arrived and I was reunited with my Clancy J.  I started work at one of the Dallas Sephoras three days later.

The house we're currently living in is a temporary nightmare.  When Clancy signed the lease, it was sight unseen.  The landlord was pretty honest and said he was selling it in three months and just wanted to fill it until then.  He said it was neglected and hadn't been inhabited recently.  But it had a big yard for Megatron and the rent was crazy cheap.  What he neglected to mention was that the kitchen had zero appliances and that the hot water heater was not only gas, but apparently was in someone else's name, because in the beginning of June we stopped having hot water.  We had the option of paying a large deposit to turn the gas back on, but it seemed pointless so we've just been toughing it out.  He also failed to mention that because it hadn't been inhabited recently, it was infested with tiny spiders that had taken over the closets and quickly moved into my unpacked belongings in the spare room.  Oh, and that there were stray dogs everywhere, and his business partner was a lying, troublemaking psycho that called the cops on Clancy and Megatron for no reason.

However, we move to our actual apartment on the 28th and it's going to literally be like heaven.  =]  Less than 11 days now!

& as a side note, I have a Influenster Something Blue Voxbox waiting to be reviewed!

This nightmare.

This was supposed to be an update, but it never happened.  What this picture is actually showing you is how Clancy and I lived out of these two bags for almost exactly four weeks.  Yes, I had that much makeup, and only that much makeup, for almost four weeks.  Why did we live in these conditions?  We were waiting for our newly renovated apartment to pass inspections that it failed numerous times.  So we stayed in an empty apartment for four weeks, on limited supplies and slept on an air mattress.

The good news is that it ended, we moved, and things have settled into some sort of [stressed] normalcy.

Phototutorial: Pink Bow Ties.

I was inspired to this tutorial because of a Makeup Forever Labshine t-shirt I have.  I know, that doesn't really make a lot of sense, but these are the colors on the shirt, and that's what I wanted to capture, even if I didn't use Makeup Forever products to do it.

In today's tutorial, I use Tarte's Lash Primer & Gifted mascara, MSC pigments Adipose, Hello Sweetie, Bow Ties are Cool and the Silence, MSC Optimus Primer, and the Too Faced 3-Way Lash Lining Tool.

Phototutorial: MSC's the Bride

Today's look is inspired by the fact that I have yet to meet a Madd Style Cosmetix green that I didn't absolutely love.  Seriously, it's a fact.  The Bride arrived in the mail and it was love at first sight.
