Prying Open My Third Eye Tattoo

Just a few months ago, I got my first tattoo. Before hand all I knew is that I wanted a third eye tattoo and it was going to be on the top of my foot, I just didn’t know how it was going to turn out and if the final design was going to be something I wanted for the rest of my life.

I found this design on Google and thought it was perfect except for some minor details I wanted for myself. I took the design into the shop and my tattoo guy let me know that the little details around the outer circle were too detailed/too small for where I wanted and how small I wanted the piece. So I had to compromise a little but he added in the fluer de lis and the added spike and the bottom that I wanted.

My little sister was also there with me to get her triforce tattoo on her foot (on the left). I love how it came out and how it’s all intertwined. I purposely left the eye undone because I wasn’t sure if I wanted it filled in or even how I wanted it filled in but I actually like it not colored in.

I just found the deviantArt page of the artist who designed the original piece and all his designs are amazing and would make great tattoo. He even has more variations on third eye tattoo designs. If you would like to see more from him, visit his dA page : http://obsolution.deviantart.com.

Lingering…

Its been a while since I’ve posted but a lot has been going on. I can’t even remember most of it. Since the first of the year I have been keeping up with my New Years resolutions. This is the first time I’ve actually done New Years resolutions and I wanted to actually buckle down and do it, unlike most people. I don’t like to set myself up to do something that unless I’m going to be commited. One of my resolutions has been for me to go out and be productive, be more adventurous, more spontaneous. I don’t want to just sit around the house wasting time when there’s so much to do, so much to see. to say the least, I’ve been positively occupied in every sense of the phrase. I’ve been adventuring my current surrounding areas, spontaneously finding new things to do, and so much more…occasions I should of been blogging about in the first place.

Meet and Eat

Browsing my Facebook feed yesterday, I saw the Bizarre Foods’ page announced that Andrew Zimmern would be in Baton Rouge today filming for his new web series Appetite For Life – Southern Hospitality and that we would get a chance to meet and eat with him. Of course I jumped to this occasion to meet this lovely fellow and help donate to a good cause.

At the event, Andrew was filming segments for his web series at the food trucks which were having a cook off and there was also a jambalaya cook off at the same time. The jambakaya cook off was also filmed for the web series and was the main event to earn money for the Capital Area United Way.

It was an exciting event and an honor to meet Andrew in person especially on the day the major of Baton Rouge announced it was Andrew Zimmern Day!

Andrew seemed to fit right in with the flow of southern hospitality.

Last Minute Shopping Deal

If you’re looking for some last minute gift ideas or deals I have a few.

 

If you’re shopping for a lady, I recommend hurrying over to your local CVS as they currently have 75% off on a lot of makeup products…and they’re all new. They’re not the usual returned items that were half used that they wanted to get rid of. They also have a lot of makeup items with 50% off as well but you can get plenty of makeup for someone from the 75% off products. I’ve already gone and bought them out of my favorite foundation.

 

If you’re looking for gifts for the kids, hurry over to Walgreen’s. They’re having a sale on a lot of toys like Hot Wheels cars for .59 cents and  candy 3/ .75 cents. I don’t know how long the sale on candy will be. It may be gone now. But also for the men, they have some As-Seen On TV items for rather cheap.

 

So if you’re a last minute shopper, head on over to your local pharmacy for some good deals.

Bare Escentuals Freebie

This will be my first makeup freebie for this blog and I’m excited. I love Bare Escentuals/Bare Minerals’ products and I’m definitely not getting paid to say it. I use Bare Minerals’ foundation almost every single day and I can’t get enough of it. It’s the lightest foundation I’ve found and it’s better for your skin than any pressed foundation. I was lucky enough to stumble on a link to a free Bare Minerals coupon and I felt I should share the love.

Click HERE for the FREE coupon.

It is just a 10 day sample and a little kabuki brush but I think you’ll love it the first time you put it on. Their products are really not that expensive and you get a lot of product.  I highly recommend printing this out for yourself and maybe giving a few to friends and family. There is no expiration date but it is only until supplies last. BUT, it states on the bottom that if they’re out they’ll let you pick out something else as your free sample.

Here’s to a great start on the holiday season!

 

Positively Occupied

Just now relaxing from a trip up to Indiana. I spent most of my time with friends and family. I had a long (drunk) talk with Lee that hopefully gave me some insight and hopefully he didn’t forget what was said. It was a real stressful trip at first but as soon as I set my mind to not let in the negativity I felt a lot better. Since then I’ve been keeping myself positively occupied.

 

I’m going to push away what I can because for now, I’m looking out for me and no one else.

Trust in Family? Friends?

I’m in New Orleans right now sitting in a hotel waiting to drive my friend to an abortion clinic. Thing is, she doesn’t know that I know it’s an abortion clinic. Her and my sister are telling me it’s just some ridiculously expensive doctor’s appointment.

I myself wouldn’t get an abortion but it is her choice. I just would of liked to know. And my sister is here with us and she knows too but neither one suspects that I know what’s going on.

I don’t know what would of happened if everyone who chipped in for the trip knew that it was an abortion. I don’t know what exactly to do about it but I figure I could start by at least telling my sister that I know…I know what’s going on.
