I know this is supposed to be a bargain beauty blog but I had to share my excitement about this. I GOT A LAPTOP! I have been using the same laptop for the past 7 years. It definitely has seen better days, although I have to say, it’s still going. Now it can be my son’s laptop and I have a new one that will (hopefully) last me another 7!
So far, the best thing about it is that the keyboard has a bit more space and it doesn’t accidentally pick up the trackpad as I’m typing (so far, *knock wood*) That was my biggest pet peeve about the old one and it also happened on other laptops I’ve used. It has a touch screen as well, although honestly, I wasn’t looking for that and it’s just a nice extra for me. But the screen is about the same size, but the whole thing is lighter. It’s technically an ultrabook, but I find myself not missing the disc drive. I hope to find that editing photos for this blog, writing for various projects and all the things I normally do on the internet will be easy and fun. But right now, I’m just reveling in the shiny and feeling good about actually doing something for myself for once.
My next entry will be more in line with the ideals of this blog. Reviews of products that can be found in a drug store or other commonly shopped stores (MalWart, Tarjay,Walgreens, etc.) On most beauty/nail blogs I’ve run across, the products being reviewed often run the gamut from cheap to prestige brands, which leaves me out of a lot of them. I just don’t have a lot of extra money to throw at beauty products, so if it’s $15 bucks, it’s staying on the shelf, more often than not. If you can’t pick it up for a couple of bucks at a drug store or superstore, you won’t be finding it on here! That means that although it is open to the public, Sally’s beauty is not a mainstay shop. Not everyone has access to them. Macy’s or other department stores, NOPE. I HATE the mall with the fire of a thousand suns, so I stay away from them as much as possible. That means no Sephora. I used to like Ulta, but they’ve become kind of posh, so I don’t go in there much anymore.
So what this means, dearest readers (all 2 of you), is that I’ll be reviewing brands like Wet & Wild, Sally Hansen, Hard Candy, Sinful Colors, and the like. Hopefully, I will have all my pictures backed up from my old computer and can start editing and posting here very soon. See y’all then!
