Weekend with Lollipop26


Hey everyone! So I just had the most amazing weekend with lollipop26 - my youtube "big sister". She was the person whose videos I stumbled across last July, and if you had told me then that in a years time we were going to be gallivanting around New York I would not have believed you at all. As I write this I feel like I am thinking in a British accent :)
Here were the highlights of our weekend:
  • Me teaching her cursive at dinner while our waiter tells me my cursive looks like a grade schooler.
  • Buying everything named "Twilight".
  • Laura teaching me that it is only classy to buy makeup with cute names, so "Bright Plum" was out and "Underwater Fantasy" was in.
  • Deciding it would be a fantastic idea to sew our own hair extensions - so we go buy some hair and some clips and then spend all friday night complaining that it is too hard.
  • Which reminds me of this - going into a hair store to buy hair and coming out each with nail polish, NYX jumbo eye pencils, needles from the 1950s (so we can sew our hair), earrings, and really trashy dangling belly button rings, just because we are terrible enablers.
  • Laura thinking that our green salsa at dinner was actually our guacamole, and that it was "very odd, because guacamole is actually normally a bit thicker".
  • Seeing Bruno - haha
  • Buying exactly the same things at forever 21 (which means our hauls might be a bit redundant).
Basically it was the most fun weekend ever. We are already planning a trip in October to visit again. I bought a ton of stuff so I will make sure to do a haul. I think I will break it into two parts - makeup and then clothing/jewelry just because there is a lot. We didn't take any pictures because we kept forgetting our cameras, and no video because we just didn't have time. We tried to cram everything in a 3 day period, which is hard since we both wanted to sleep until noon every morning.

I will get a haul video up as soon as I can, I would love to do it tomorrow after work if I am not exhausted. I also bought makeup for a "summer drugstore" look so I need to get that up SOON because summer is almost over! School is going to start for those of you still in grade school soon! Those are next priority to film, so those will go up this week.


BTW - Laura and I had a long heart to heart about when you know you have too much makeup and it is time for an intervention. She said she knew when she went to buy makeup one day and the bag sat in her room for 2 days untouched. So we went into my room and lo and behold - a mac bag, with 2 MSF's - untouched. She embarked on Project 10 pan as her mission - I am going to do a massive blog sale. I will sell makeup of course, but I think I will sell so other things too - like my unworn coach shoes (Size 8 :) ), and my dooney and bourke bags. I could sell them on ebay but I feel like it would be easier to do it on a blog sale, and if they don't sell then I will do ebay. When I go home in a few weeks I will do it, but it will probably be US only to make shipping simple, so I can get the packages out the next day (Sorry!)

Okay I work in the morning and it has been an amazing, but exhausting, weekend so I should probably go to bed now. Love you guys tons - can't wait to be back in my bedroom at my own house at school - I feel like it has been AGES! xoxo :)

notloove on July 21, 2009 at 12:00 AM said...

Awesome haul! I love watching both of you.

Please consider making your blogsale available internationally- Atleast to Canada!! Thank you!

ugh, it deleted my comment! Ok so here goes again, i watched the vids, and i have a suggestion to help get rid of your under eye puffiness. I have a lot of friends/clients with the same problem, some much worse, and the one thing they have in common is potassium deficiency. One banana has your RDA of potassium in it, and all the people i know that have inceased their potassium intake have solved this problem. However, DO NOT TAKE A POTASSIUM SUPPLEMENT! the side effects are serious, i.e heart attack. I'm not sure if youre interested in knowing why, but heres the reason, all cells in the body have a sodium/potassium pump, which regulates the fluid contained inside and outside of the cell, if there is too much sodium or potassium the fluid doesnt pass through the cell wall, which would make your eyes puffy, and also this is most often the cause of those annoying calf cramps, the ones that dont go away, and are excruciating, eating a banana helps this also. Anyway, but if you drastically increas your sodium or potassium, as in using a supplement, it could stop your heart.So one banana is plenty. I hope this helps!and i hope i didnt scare you, its just that some people think a lot of a good thing is a good thing, and its not always true.

lel on July 21, 2009 at 2:14 AM said...

i remember in one of your vids that you said you read every single comment in your vids and blogs. so here's one for you...

Wish you would do international shipping elle! haha.

It's really funny. I have just started watching youtube make up vedio this year, and both you and lollipop 26 are my favorates. Suddenly last week I got to know (from lollypop26 blog) that you and lollipop26 met up in NYC. I felt it's such a small world!

I think in honour of you and Laura' get-together you should at least include the UK too in your blog sale :'(....in the name of twilight ?
