So obviously I've decided to start posting over here because sometimes Yahoo is just a little too unreliable lately. Besides, I like the format a lot better too. I can post mulitple pics on here.
Anyway, on with the Olivia-ness.
I have decided to become a Skinny Bitch. (Hopefully none of you will say that I already am one. Well, maybe skinny-ish but not a bitch, right?) It's all because of this book Skinny Bitch that I read. Amanda actually recommended it. Then one of my co-workers at Utopia had it too. I thought it was a sign that I needed to read it. Whether it was or not, I'm glad that I did. If you have not read it, I advise that you do so. It's a fairly quick read, funny, well-written and very informative. It'll totally open your eyes about the food that you eat. Seriously. I think you can get it at Target for about $12.55 + tax. Go get it. Read it. Tell me your thoughts.
I am still looking for a regular full time job so I have picked up more hours at Utopia until further notice. This is fine with me. At least it's steady income and it's easy, ya know? (Well, it's easy to me anyway. Some of these other people that they fired, I guess it didn't come so easy to them.) So I've been getting back into the swing of things by doing makeup and what-have-you. Last Saturday I did two makeovers (one at $45 and another at $20 -- I get to keep half of that + whatever tips) and I felt really good about it. I haven't had a lot of time to scrapbook lately so at least I can do make-up at work and get paid for the creative outlet. So this evening at work, this girl was having her highlights done and while she was processing, Melissa (hairstylist) brought the client out to talk to me about our make-up because Melissa said she knows squat about Aveda make-up.
At first this girl only wanted me to tell her about our foundations, and I ended up selling her foundation, blush, eyeshadow and I could have added lipstick to the list but we didn't have the color that I recommended in-stock. How about a big pat on the back for me!? I was super stoked. (Cause I get commission on all that! Hello!) I just had to share that because it doesn't happen often and it totally made my otherwise-lame and rainy Thursday.
And now it's confession time. Nothing serious. But I heard a new song by the Backstreet Boys yesterday and I LOVE it. (No, I'm not kidding.) I know what you're thinking, "Olivia, you are 26 and should be over the BSB by now." Well, tough cookies. I'm not! If they keep putting out cds, I will keep buying. (It's called "Inconsolable" if you're wondering.)
Lastly, let us all say a prayer for those that are suffering because of the fires in So Cal. I can't even imagine how heart-breaking that must be for them. One minute you have your home with all your stuff, and then the next minute all your stuff is in embers. Sad. They're in my thoughts.
RECAP: Women - Go buy Skinny Bitch and become one! (Skinny - not so much a bitch.) Listen to the new BSB song. Give it a chance. Pray for the people in Southern CA. They need it.
