If you Really, Really Knew Me (Part 2)

I have to admit… I kind of feel like that post last week was a bit of a cop out. Like I said, I wanted to incorporate more personal posts into my blog and stretch myself. So what if I am deathly afraid of unfinished wood and have freakishly hyperextendy elbows?! I don’t even give a crap.

So, I’m going to do this in the most voyeuristic way I can possibly imagine. Miss Kennedy has gone down for the night and it’s time to get these blogging juices flowing.

I know I like to see a little snippet of a blogger’s life. I am a nosy lady. Really nosy. What better way to show you snippets of my life, this evening…. RIGHT NOW?! Okay, you’ll be reading this tomorrow morning, but you get the drift.

If I were a true blogger, I would show you my fancy clothes, how amazingly decorated my house is, my impeccable makeup organization, and how beautifully my nails are painted.

I’m afraid I am currently no such thing.

I’m wearing yoga pants. I change into them immediately upon arriving at home. Like you don’t do the same thing. Psh. Those aren’t some fancy lululemon pants. Girl, they be Old Navy.  But because I have made myself into an animated gif it means I am automatically funny and cool.

Hurricane Kennedy worked her way through my living room. I’m not even going to show you what her room looks like. Just picture sparkles and rainbows. Oh and tons of chevron and glitter.
This is all of my “new” makeup that I haven’t found room for yet. That includes about 7 eye palettes. I have yet to come up with a better organization method for my stuff, but I have a feeling it is going to involve multiple plastic drawers. And of course my tampons had to go somewhere.
That’s my counter right now – the way I left it this morning when I rushed out the door. Hello, Lorac Pro Palette. You are amazing. I think I will write a review on you soon. And I keep my brushes in coffee mugs (one mug is for face brushes, the other for eye). And they haven’t been washed in about three weeks. And that’s my eye/lip drawer. It surprisingly holds a ton of stuff.
This would be my face drawer. It holds a lot of crap. It doesn’t look like a lot but it is a TON of crap. Now I’m inspired to do a post where I take out all of my makeup and line it up on the floor to see how much crap I actually have. Would anyone want to see that? Probably not.
My nails’ current condition. I start peeling and picking off the polish after about five days. I won’t leave the house with them like this, and I am going to repaint them after I am done typing this blog post (or just go bare nailed if I’m too lazy). And for all those that are wondering (because I know you all are… duh), it’s OPI Bubble Bath. Think I should link this up for the Nail Files, Tara? Feel free to pin this to your Pinterest Nail Boards immediately.
I store all my polishes in a huge old Tiffany box. It sounds fancy, but I promise you it isn’t. I think this packaged a wedding gift… I believe a crystal mug (that Greg obviously drinks his beer from every Sunday while he watches football). There are also polishes randomly around the house I haven’t put back in the box yet. Blogging has made my nail polish collection grow exponentially so I should be a true blogger and get myself a spice rack for my bathroom.
And because there’s no better way to be a voyeur than to peek into someone’s fridge….. here’s mine.  Nothing exciting, except there’s a lot of beer and ingredients to make mimosas (the Cupcake prosecco is in the very back). Brunch, anyone?!

So there you have it, unwatermarked photos and all! Because, really… who in their right mind would even want those pictures? Did I just blow your mind?  I almost uploaded them all to PicFX and put little bokeh hearts all over them to “spice them up a bit,” but decided that might be a little overkill. I totally understand after today if you want to unfollow my blog and my totally horrible makeup organization and nasty nails. I get it.

Have a great Tuesday!
Okay, I really should slow it down with those animated gifs.

    hahahahahhaha amazing!!!! I loved this post! I have been waiting for the makeup reveal!! I hope you do lay it all out, because it’d be really cool to see it all! My cousins wife is definitely a makeup queen, I went to her house in November and in her bathroom she has THREE wide drawers FULL of makeup. She’s a dior girl and a majority of one drawer probably held 40ish Dior palettes. She also has about 200 lipsticks (she’s part of that generation).

    I started storing my nail polish in vases, because they’re pretty and it puts them on display. I broke 3 vases putting them back in, then I bought a really thick square low vase and it’s been amazing. It’s overflowing like crazy though, so I need to get a second one soon.

    As for makeup storage, I keep my brushes and mascaras (when I manage to unpack from my makeup bag from traveling) in old used up candle glass thingies. I also have an old IKEA frame holder shelf and line that with my make-up I use pretty regularly, and my palettes go in a basket. You’d probably need a few shelves!

    I’m moving again though, and the new place has drawers in the bathroom so I’m sure they’ll all get thrown in there now.

    Your yoga pants are a step above my pj pants! My nails are almost always chipped or naked because I am that lazy. I think we have a lot of the same makeup and even socks lol. I love this post!

    I love it! Man, I could go for a Sam Adams with Greg and a mimosa with you. I’m not a Cupcake wine fan, but I do really like their prosecco. There’s a bottle in my fridge, too.

    I love real posts.

    I meant to put “real” in quotes, because all of your posts are real.

    There’s no way in hell I’m buying lululemon yoga pants when I just wear them after work while I’m sittin’ on my ass 😉 Old Navy is where it’s at!

    My nails look like that on a daily basis. At least it’s a light color so you can’t tell too much. 😉

    I’m super nosy too, and I love you lots! xoxo

    Comfy pants around the house are the only way to go. Why waste perfectly good “real” pants just sitting around?

    You are hilarious, my friend! I’m pretty sure no one would want to see the mess I change into when I get home or that the first thing to come off is the bra. No thanks! haha
