The Double Head Tilt

It's crazy!!! This simple little video that i stuck on youtube in 2007 of my two crazy boxers head tilting to a boxer crying on my computer has a 5 star rating and 25000 views. I just think that's nuts!!!!

The obsession continues...

So there is no doubt I'm obsessed with eye shadow. I am a big Urban Decay Snob. I even found a way to justify buying the new Alice In Wonderland inspired palette from Urban Decay. Totally didn't "need" but hey I'm a girl, I like bright and happy eye colors. So a girl at work has been raving about these palettes she found on ebay. You can actually find them on amazon.com and also their own website. They are called Coastal Scents. Really really fun palettes that have up 120 colors. I actually settled on two palettes. The 88 color Warm Palette and the 88 color Shimmer Palette. Each palette was $19 bucks!!!! I couldn't pass that price up. Look how pretty these are.

Just looking at the Shimmer Palette makes me all giddy!!! Like a kid in a candy shop!!!! I can't wait till they arrive.

Obesessed Lately

So lately I have been obsessed with Makeup tutorials on youtube. Right now my two top favorites are Lauren Luke and Tiffany D! I can't stop watching them! I've always loved having fun eyes and now I know how to do a lot more different looks that are actually easier than I thought they would be. If you are into makeup and have always wondered how to do smokey eyes or want to use some of those colors that are just sitting in your drawer then check them out. Some of my fav looks that I've tried are on Lauren Luke's youtube. Spring/Summer Bridal, Sweet & Innocent Bridal, & Katy Perry Hot n Cold. http://www.youtube.com/user/panacea81 I haven't tried any of Tiffany D's yet. http://makeupbytiffanyd.blogspot.com/ but I'm hoping to when I get the new brushes I ordered! The brushes I have are good but needed to be replaced. I was excited to find these on amazon.com so I'm hoping they are good!! $60 plus free shipping and they come in the case. I had a $25 gift card too so even better!!!!

OMG two in a row!!!

This makes me thoroughly excited!!! Plus it was part of the morning

It's morphing...

Why did it take me so long to hit the purchase button?

So I felt it was time for a new pair of tennies for the Gym. I have had my shox for like 4 years and definitely have gotten a good bang for my buck out of them. For months I've been saying "i need new shox" and for months Stevo has been saying "well buy some". I have been on Nike.com, in every sporting good store that sells them, and all shoe stores that sell them and just haven't found what I wanted. I am fan of the old skool body style for the shox. Not too glitzy, not too glamy, just simple and perfect for my feet. Well after searching more yesterday and thinking I had found the ones i was going to buy, I realized that i just wasn't going to be happy with them. I finally decided to just design my own with NikeiD. It's a section of Nike.com where you can design your own shoe with particular styles. http://bit.ly/bRaVlx
Well they had my old skool shox style and I bit the bullet and did it. Yes it cost a little bit more and it's gonna take forever to get to me but I know in the end I will be happy with my purchase. Of course it did take me 12 hours just to design them and I had to keep walking away from the computer and was hesitant to hit purchase. I finally got the courage to place the order and now my shoes are in production!! YAY!!!!! phew. Now I can't wait to get them!!! I even got to include something on the back of each shoe. I didn't go too crazy and do anything cheesey or lame like "you wish" or "keep dreaming" as suggested by Stevo. I just went with the simple GWEEDYS KICKS. So now the waiting game starts. Please go by fast 2-4 weeks. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!!

New, fabulous Shox:

Yes it's simple but it's gonna make me so happy!!

Let's just go with Initials

The thing is I didn't even give her my initials. I just said "Autumn" like usual.

Tuesday, March 16, 2010

The fun continues...

Barista: "Morning what can i get for you?"

Me: "Grande Nonfat Toffe Nut latte please"

Barista: "Name?"

Me: "Autumn"

Hmm Still wondering how she got "Aron" from Autumn. The even funnier thing, this is the second time I have gotten "Aron". About a month ago by the same girl who took my order for today's.

New fun project

It's a simple process. Stand in line at starbucks and wait your turn to order your beverage. Give them your order, "Grande skinny vanilla latte please". Then they ask the question "your name" Inside I laugh. Why you ask? Because I know when I pick up my beverage from the barista counter I know that the spelling of my name will be one that is, well amusing. Sad I know. I mean come on who doesn't know how to spell AUTUMN. Let me be the first to tell you, there are MANY MANY MANY who seriously cannot spell Autumn!!! So I thought it would be fun to do a starbucks cup blog project and document all the cups I get with the "unique" spelling of my name. The ultimate one has been ODUM and I kick myself all the time that I didn't ever take a picture of it. So with that, here is my first entry...

At least they got the AU correct...
