Not Related To Makeup Whatsoever

Buuuuut you should totally read this post anyways. :)

So, as I'm sure you can already guess from the picture above... mom and I adopted a new doggy. We just picked her up from the humane society this morning and she was in dire need of medical attention, which was pretty much why we wanted to adopt her in the first place. She was part of this story in my area:

"CAMBRIA COUNTY, Pa. -- The first pack of 32 dogs was found Tuesday by two women walking in a rural area of Cambria County. The pack of 32 dogs was taken to the Humane Society in Richland. Animal enforcement officials dropped off four more on Wednesday, two adults and two puppies were found on Vetera Road in rural Ebensburg.

The manager at the Humane Society said she was told to expect up to 80 dogs as the investigation continues.

She said the dogs range in age from 6-months to 5-years. They are all a mixed terrier breed, most infested with fleas, some malnourished. Volunteers at the shelter are doing what they can to get the dogs healthy and ready for adoption.

"We have them entered as strays,” said shelter manager Karin Newbaker. “As per any other stray we would enter into our facility, they're available for adoption within 48 hours. So most of them, most of the 32 that are here now, should be available for adoption (Thursday)."

Authorities said they are trying to piece together how the dogs found Wednesday are connected to the original pack.

Officers asked WJAC-TV not to reveal the original location while the investigation continues."

We came up right after they put the dogs out on Thursday, and our little "Bambi", as we named her, was not able to go home that day because her skin/eyes/gums were all yellow... her skin was terribly dry, she could not really eat on her own and had to be fed and given water through an eye dropper... pretty much she wasn't given a good diagnosis, but all of the shelter workers were keeping up hope for her and doing everything they could to keep her healty and comfortable.

She broke us both to pieces when we saw her Thursday (7/28/11) and when we went home that night she was ALL mom could talk about. So, we decided to go back up Friday and take her out the the vet office right away and treat her and give her the same second chance at life we have both been given.

She is currently out at the vet's office and will remain there until about Sunday or maybe monday. They are giving her IV fluids and are trying to treat her kidney and liver functions, which are what's really the only thing hindering her recovery right now, because she is able to eat and drink on her own, and she is up and walking fine now, so we're really hoping she pulls through.

This is just a message that I live by on a daily basis, and I want to remind the rest of the world of as well. Please... treat animals with kindness and compassion, don't abuse and neglect them.

Recent Collective Hauls


This is basically stuff I've collected the past several months, and I've tried to include swatches. :)

First up is this really badass brand new Jesse's Girl baked mineralized shadow palette. I LOVE this thing! You get nine colors, I think it was $6.99, but it was cheaper with my Wellness plus savings at Rite Aid so I only paid a little over five bucks or so for it... which is a steal!

Just LOOK at those beautiful shades!

NYC limited edition blushable creme stick in Gold Radiance, and Revlon scented flavor gloss in Grape Fizz.

The creme stick applied heavily then blended out, and the gloss swatched.

Hard Candy visibly wet lip pencil in Jezebel... such a nice color, but these burn like a bitch! I wish they didn't hurt so bad because I'd like to get more of them. :( The burning takes like twenty minutes to go away, too. :/ I love how NONE of the "sponsored" reviews said a damn thing about these burning, or evening tingling in their reviews... what's with that?

The above labels are pretty self explanitory. :) These are really great palettes, I was quite surprised by them to be honest. They have the same great texture and color payoff as the five pan LA Colors shadows, which made me happy.

LA five color palette in "Tease" on the top, along with a row from the one palette that has identical shades below it, to show the colors have the same great pigmentation. The rest are assorted swatches from both palettes... LOOK at those reds! These babies were only about four bucks each with my wellness discount at Rite Aid, but since they're pretty much gone from the shelves by now you can still get the from :D

China Glaze "Ahoy!", Zoya "Gemma", Milani "Totally Cool", Jordana "Purple Glam", Wet N Wild Shimmer Dust in "White Lotus", WnW Sparkle Dust in "Lilac Frosting"
