i'm not gonna lie - i've been a pretty terrible blogger this month. not only are my friends commenting on my lack of posts, but even i am starting to wonder what the hell is wrong with me.

the only thing i can say about my absence is:

* kicking my butt.
* i'm trying to put some plans in place for myself.
* it's impossible to fit everything i want to do in 24 hours.
* sleep is no longer my friend...
* ...which makes me not get anything done.

but, i celebrated my birthday this month! since i didn't capture my very cute birthday outfit, i figured i would at least showcase my awesome gifts:

 this "black book" is my new...
...ipad! i am in loveeeeeeeeeee. my fam pitched in and got it for me. i'm a lucky girl.
amazing jewelry:

 my mom got me the earrings and my sister got me the "d" necklace.

the cuatro (a 10-stringed spanish guitar) from my cousin...he'll be happy i posted this.

so yea, that's what's up.

iscream, ipad

for my bday, my family pitched in and got me a gift certificate to apple so i could order an ipad for myself. holler. my dreams have come true.

so when i ordered my ipad tonight, i knew i needed to order an ipad case. so i started an online search and came across this awesome case from pad&quill:

an ipad case that looks like a moleskine?!? whattttt! i want.

while doing that, i also checked out this itouch case:

so, yea, i ordered both.

i caved...

After days of no coffee consumption, I caved today. I'm exhausted, run down, straight zombie style right now.

Just know that I had an awesome birthday and am looking forward to watching harry potter and having drinks with my friends this weekend.

no eye makeup

i have a confession to make: i love eye makeup. 
it's almost to the point of obsession. maybe it's the artist in me that loves playing around with eye makeup? which is why you will probably never catch me leaving the house without mascara, eyeliner and some eye shadow on. either way, this obsession started years ago (after college) when i first started experimenting with makeup.

but, here is a pic of yours truly with no eye makeup on:

there is, of course, a story behind why i am not wearing any eye makeup in this pic (and why my eye looks so funny in this pic). late last night, something got into my eye and i desperately tried to get it out for over an hour. i started freaking out, the boo took me to the ER and 2 hours later i returned home with a numb eyeball. i woke up 2.5 hours later to get up for work and my eye still had the sensation of something being in it. so i started to worry even more.
i went to work, called my primary doctor, set up an appointment for 12:20 and ran over there. my doc didn't even look at my eye--she immediately sent me to the optometrist where they did the normal eye tests (20/20 vision, holler!) and then the doc examined me. i have a strange fear of anyone putting drops in my eyes or touching my eyes or flipping my eyelids so i was bugging out inside. luckily, doc was really sweet and promised to get me all better before my bday on monday. she did end up flipping my lid and found the teeny tiniest of smut under there and removed it. i was given some antibiotic eye drops and sent on my way.
i figured i would take a break from eye makeup for the next day or two until my eye feels better. i am hoping to be all better by my bday on monday (even though when i asked the boo about doing dinner on monday. he looked at me as though i have 15 heads...sigh). but here i am--no eye makeup, on my blog. hopefully i don't look too crazy/weird looking/blah. 

on another note, check out my new skull necklace. yes, i made it myself.
