Feeling Relieved

So Ive had a very hectic week and weekend..my daddy is currently in the hospital very ill, so I have had to go and come to Brownsville because of his situation, he is currently in the ICU and I am so glad that he is finally kinda awake and talking to us..So my dad is suffering from a very serious illness..and we have all been there to support him, I was so glad to go visit him at the hospital and see many friends and family there to support him through his tough time..I know he will make out of the hospital because I know my dad is a fighter...we still need him here with us and I know God has been there by his side giving him strength to go on...and he has also with us!! So on Monday he was admitted to the hospital and on Tuesday he was put in the ICU, My sister Amy called and told me I needed to go over there because Dr's were saying he wasn't going to make it, so on Tuesday I got out of work early and left to Brownsville with the hubby, we came back Wednesday evening and I returned to work because he was doing a little better, then Friday my sis called again and said he had gotten worse so once again the hubby and I packed up and headed to b-ville, the whole time we were there he was just weak and asleep ..finally he spoke to me yesterday morning and he has been doing better...I just want him to get better and be home with my mom, little brother and sister, I know he won't be 100% better but just to have him be alive and functioning is enough for me..so i will just try to return to my normal routine and go see him this coming weekend! I do THANK GOD and everybody who has been there supporting my dad and us through this hard time!! I especially thank my husband because he has been by my side this whole time..I love u babe!!

PS. I will try and blog more often I just have to get my mind straight..please forgive my lack of posts!!

Mall Haul, notd,Possible swap

So the hubby and I were supposed to go buy groceries today but instead we decided to go to the mall..we were super hungry so we got some italian at the food court and then we went mall walking :D So I stopped by mac and forever21..I only go to forever21 to pick up accesories, obviously the clothes dont fit me! lol!! So this is what I picked up
I was doing my make-up and for some reason I was attracted to a wetnwild bright e/l so I went with my "bright feeling" and ended up doing this bright FOTD.."BTW much more brighter in person"

this is my whole haul

these are kinda like hoops but they dont completely close..I love the detail on them

and also got these cute rose earrings..aren't they super cute :D

at mac I was debating whether to get painterly or soft ochre so I asked the mua and she reccomended soft ochre so that's what I got :D

I'll prob end up buying painterly later

so i love nail polish but I rarely do my nails since I can't wear n/p to work so this is the color I painted my nails yesterday... I wish I could wear n/p everyday : (

I was first going to paint them a lilac color [NYC park avenue] but I decide to go with pink instead so I used NYC uptown [a baby pink]

I used SAlly hansen Hard as nails in clear as a top coat

and this is the lippie combo I was in love with this weekend

It's a prestie lipstick "desire" with an America's next top model lipgloss in "pinkliscious"

well I guess this is all!!!

BTW I have a brand new Sonia Kashuk blending sponge in a purple color..if anybody wants to swap..check it out here..I have a wishlist ------>

LMK if any of u ladies are interested :D
