Venomous Villains

Over the weekend I decided to drive a half an hour away to go to the Limited and try to find a suit. I was hoping that maybe if I bought a suit with long sleeves (I have one with short sleeves and is totally cute, but totally doesn't work for fall/winter) that maybe, just maybe, I will get a job interview. I was really excited to go because I looked at suits online and I picked one that I thought I would love. I get there and I hate it. So instead of just feeling bad for myself for driving so far away when I have 4 malls within 20 minutes of my house (less than 20 usually) that I would try and make the trip better. I bought a dress from Delia's, a necklace from the Icing and decided to check out Mac. The store was packed and I only slightly looked at the Venomous Villains collection and then left.

As I was leaving the mall, I had to walk through Macy's and right when I walked in there was the Mac counter, so I looked at the collection again and fell in love. Now, I normally don't buy stuff from Mac since I am poor, but I love Disney and I couldn't pass it up. The girl who helped me was awesome too, I was just going to get the Bad Fairy nailpolish from the Maleficent part of the collection but it was sold out and I was going to leave I couldn't help being mesmerized by the eyeshadow duo in She who Dares (I love the names of everything) and then the extremely nice and funny girl who helped me talked me into a lipgloss (which I will use this weekend for a wedding I am attending) and a powder thing. So the lipgloss was from Cruella in Devilishly Stylish which is nude shade and the powder was from the dude from the Princess and the Frog (great new princess movie) and it was the Magically Cool Liquid Powder (I got the lighter shade since I am pale) I was amazed at the powder. It felt like you were rubbing a drop of water on your skin and left a bit of shimmer. Since I only bought 3 things I was very proud of myself, but then I had to bring something back to the mall on Monday and decided to go nuts, again.

So I went to the biggest mall by me on Monday (I took the day off for a doctor's appointment) and I parked by Nordstrom and walked through. I had no idea that Nordstrom had a Mac counter (yeah I'm kinda slow) so I figured since I didn't get the nailpolish I wanted, I would try and see if they had it in stock and guess what, THEY DID. So I got the Bad Fairy nailpolish that I wanted and sprung for the other Cruella lipgloss in Wicked Ways which on the website it says its a fushia but it really looks like a red to me. Anyway I love it and now I really need to stop spending money. I think I need to go to shopaholics anonymous in order to help me not spend money so often.

So has anyone else bought anything from the new Mac collection? If so, what do you think?

DWTS and books I am reading

So I am a huge Dancing with the Stars fan. I haven't watched since the first season, I actually can't remember when I started watching, but I fell in love with Maks and now I am hooked. This season just started a few weeks ago, but I already have some favorites. The first is Kyle Massey, from the Disney Channel. He was so great the first day, that I just need to see how far he can go. Unfortunately, I forgot to vote last night, so let's hope he stays on. I also really like watching Jennifer Gray (Grey?), but I kinda think it's unfair since she was in Dirty Dancing. Tonight is the result night or whatever, and I honestly don't know who will go home. Maybe the Situation? I don't think he is very good, but he probably has a lot of fans since he is on the Jersey Shore (did you know that most of those people aren't from Jersey?) I don't usually watch the results, I just look up who leaves online when I remember. I am an avid fan of NCIS and have to watch it the day it comes on. And for any Glee fans, that gets taped every week which means I can watch it more than once.

Now onto books. This summer I started reading 4 different series of books. The first was the Georgia Nicholson series by Louise Rennison (the first book is Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging) I have read the first few books before, but they are so hilarious, that I decided to start all over again. The books are a diary written by a girl named Georgia who lives in England with her parents, her crazy younger sister, and her insane cat Angus who she says is part Scottish wild cat. A movie was made compiling bits and pieces from the first and second books of the series, it was on Teen Nick and was equally as funny as the books. Anyone see it?

The second series is the It Girl by Cecily von Zeigesar (author of Gossip Girl) I do like this series, but I liked Gossip Girl a little bit better. Sometimes I feel like it's hard to get into the book, but then I get to the middle and I can't put it down. Strange right? Anyway, the series is a spin off of Gossip Girl when Jenny Humphry decides to get away from her old school Constance and goes to boarding school at Waverly. She goes from a nothing in NY to the it girl on campus. The only thing I wasn't so big on was that Jenny goes from being a not very rich girl in NY to a not very rich girl at the boarding school. I don't understand how everyone has to be rich in her books.

I also began reading Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shephard. I saw a commercial for the show (before it began) and decided that I needed to see what it really was about. I was hooked instantly. These books are a combo of major drama and mystery, which I love, and all of the books had endings that just made you want more. I had to wait 3 months to get the last book, Wanted, and now that I am done, I am sorta sad because it definitely seems to be the last book. When I say I'm sad, it's more like I am disappointed that I can't read more about these characters, that's how good I thought it was. Anyone read these yet? If so, what did you think?

The last series that I started reading is the Psychic Eye Series by Victoria Laurie. I picked the first book up from the paperback section in my library just so I could have another book to bring on vacation in July. I didn't read it on vacation, I didn't read it the week after, I waited almost a month not thinking I would enjoy it. I was wrong. The books are about a psychic named Abby who is 30 and single and gets involved in helping the cops figure out a murder. I love trying to figure out how these books will end. I am currently reading the 4th book of the series which I will probably review when I finish it since it is the first book I am reading since having the blog.

Last, but not least, I would love to hear what others have to say about books, tv, movies, whatever. So if there are any books that you think I should add to my 500+ books to read, let me know.

“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.”- the Great Gatsby

Hey everyone, or anyone. So this is my first blog ever, I am slightly nervous and if you actually read this, you are probably thinking "Why on earth would she be nervous, it's not even a vlog, she is just typing." Well, in an attempt to try and explain, I am the kinda girl who has always wanted attention, but has been too scared to put myself out there. Maybe because when I have tried, people just made fun of me for how I look, my glasses, how bad my skin is. It was easier to just blend in as well as I could. I am hoping that this blog will help me start to put myself out there again.

So, if anyone decides to follow me, I should probably warn you, I have a problem. My name is Jen Haring and I am a shopaholic. It's an issue only because as a substitute teacher, I never know when I am going to work. For the month of September I only worked 3 days, and I only get paid the 15th of each month. I should probably let you know, that I already spent my pay check and I won't actually get it in the mail for another week or so. When I walk into a store, I have to buy something. I rarely walk out empty handed. Like today, I went into Delia's to return 2 things, and I walked out with a shirt. When I went into Ulta to get something for my mom, I walked out with 3 nailpolishes (buy 2 get 1 for something, how can I pass that up?), a rollerball perfume, concealer, tinted lip balm, and a comb. Technically I didn't need any of it, but I just couldn't pass it up.

Since this post is extremely long, I think I should probably stop. Have a great night everyone!
