A time to be thankful...

Let's face it... It's been quite a while since I've last posted a blog, let alone a youtube video. I've been a bit M.I.A. (missing in action) lately and have had some good reasons for doing so. I feel as if so much is happening at the moment, and yet.. feel like time seems to fly by before I can even catch my breath. The last video I made was on Oct. 16th! and I'm planning on making a new one shortly, and thus, being more consistent.

What's been going on in my world recently:

-My sister got married in the summer, and is expecting a baby in January! WOO HOO! This is going to be my first time being an Aunt!

-I got a job that changed my life!
     -For some people, this change may not seem like much, but it is to me. For the past 6 years, I've been stuck in the retail industry... and I mean as a sales associate for clothing stores. Easy job... not much to it... but when you're putting in so much passion, hard work, dedication, time, devotion, dealing with rude customers, little pay, too little hours, etc... and always seem to get the short end of the receiving stick, this job can seem more like a burden. So when I took a chance, and applied for a receptionist position with NO experience at a hair salon, you can imagine my surprise when I received an interview and then the job the following day!
    When I say this job changed my life, it's because I don't have to fold t-shirts for a living anymore, (WOO HOO!) make decent money for where I'm living, and know that I can actually grow in this industry, It's something I'm interested in and can learn about more... after all, what is a beauty guru's passion? I may not be applying makeup to people for a living, but hey, at least I'm in the right field.

Anywhoozle, I've been SO TIRED! I haven't had energy to make videos! =[ BOOO! But I'm back to it! YAY!

Thanks for the comments BTW! I was so excited to see them, even if I did view them a tad bit late...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Yours always, Katie

A girl can dream...

Dresses. Sigh. I've been looking online these past few days for some dresses... and boy did I sure find some. I came across REALLY cute dresses, but they were all above $50.00... which isn't that bad.. but if you're on a budget, you can say goodbye to all of those. But I DID come across this website...

Clothing for $15.00 and under!!!

Yes, you read that right! $15.00 and UNDER! everything on this website is for $15.00 and under! CRAZY! I haven't actually ordered anything off this site yet, but as far as I can see, it looks legit. Maybe I'll order some and give a review.

Anyone know of any other good clothing websites? I need some bargain clothing ASAP!

Off to dreamland!

Procrastination Won't reach your Destination!

I'm in the process of "re-modeling" my kitchen, and by that I just mean painting the walls and perhaps putting down some new tiles. I began thinking about re-modeling back in April, and so far the only thing to get done is the wall paper at the top of the wall was ripped off... I actually still have a small section to go.. after that, It's sanding down the.... oh my gosh! I can't think of the word hahaha, whyyyyyyyyyyyyy!?!?!??! what is it called!? I wish you guys knew what I was talking about! It's called... OH!!!!! PLASTER! hahahahahahah. I don't know why that has slipped my mind. But yes, sanding down the plaster and then painting! YAY! I can't wait! Today I shall work on it. The kitchen will be a light pastel blue, with white cabinets and possibly a wood floor.. I was thinking about doing maybe light green accents(Plates, spoons, etc...) or red. I'm confused.. I'm kind of "rushing" through it just because it's been so long already!

The other side still has to, clean the bathroom, clean the bedroom, take out the trash, put my makeup on, and film a youtube video. 

Number of things that have been done so far....


It's so hot in my house that I'm trying to get some work done, but I don't think I can move! haha, oh well, at least I'm trying to keep up with my blog.

On another note, I'm thinking about joining a gym! YAY for getting in shape! It's 20 bucks a month!!!! THATS IT! most gym's I've seen in the city can run up a good, $80 bucks a month! *cough: NY SPORTS GYM!* I'll probably sign up sometime after Friday! Maybe we can all get in shape together! Better late than never, I always say! 

Off to work on my kitchen, Katie! <3

A New Beginning...

So after a few months of me NOT posting my blogs, I couldn't for my life remember my "H E DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS" password! So, here goes a new blog. I believe this is my third now.. and hopefully the last! HAHA! So with a new blog, I must re-introduce myself...

I'm Katie. I am 23 years old as of May 22nd. I started filming my very own makeup tutorials on youtube about a year ago, and it has been probably the best year of my life. I've "met" so many encouraging people (including: Kandee Johnson... EEEEEEEPPPPPPP with excitement!) and without youtube, this would not have been possible. I even had my very first makeup class this year which went extremely well. And hopefully I will be doing some more. I'm trying to get my freelance work started as well. I HAVE SO MANY DREAMS! I want to do EVERYTHING! haha.. but one day at a time as they say....

Anywho.. won't keep you for too long.. here's a link to my old blog just incase:
and here is a video of me, so you can get to know me a bit better:

Love, Peace and Chicken Grease...
