I think I've discovered why I really hate blogging here, and thus why I haven't been here.

I hate the name.

So, I'll be working on changing that up. In the meantime, I do have posts planned. I know, I know, I keep coming back every few months saying that, then disappearing again.

I had a good excuse this time! Literally, since I last posted, I've been averaging 50-60 hours/week at work. Closer to the 60 hours mark.
Seriously though. Since mid-August, between my clinicals and actually working, I was at work no less than 50 hours a week...the ENTIRE time...and from mid-August to mid-December, it was 80 hours a week.

Let that sink in, and then you'll realize why I haven't been posting.

So, next time you stop by, I'll have a new locale and link for you to follow along with me. Literally. Working on that right now. And hopefully I'll be more active :)

A Little Bit of Christmas Cheer

Look who decided to re-join the blogging party...

It's me! And to be honest, I wasn't sure I was going to come back to blogging. I'm still not 100% sure about it.

So...uh, yeah. I've been MIA for approximately 4 months. Almost to the day, actually. Ever since I managed to get the MOST EFFING OVERWHELMED I'VE EVER BEEN IN MY LIFE.

I nearly disappeared from the Interwebz in general, because after awhile, working 80 hours a week, studying, and still managing to have a relationship, bathe, make yourself look presentable, sleep, training for a new position, and occasionally act like an adult and cook/clean/etc gets to you and makes you batshit insane.

Uh, which I ended up being for a few weeks there. Like I certifiably probably should have been in a white coat in a padded room.

But, here we are...On Christmas Eve.
Time to update y'all on my life.

Well, I finished school. I haven't seen an official transcript yet (or, any transcript really), but I'm pretty sure my final semester ended up with a 3.875...and I'm going to graduate with honors. So, woot woot for me.

I still need to take my registry. I don't have access to do that for like, another month and a half or something ridiculous. I'm okay with that, although I'd like to let all of this knowledge out of my head so that it quits slowly leaking out. Heh.

And, since I have been working 80 hours a week up until last week, I have absolutely no fa-la-la-la-la-la Christmas cheer. Hell, I'm sitting here right now burning a Bali Sunrise candle and contemplating cleaning my apartment. I do have my mini-tree out and my display of Christmas ornaments, but...I'm not seeing family for Christmas, I'm working on Christmas, I haven't bought (or received) and Christmas presents...and sadly enough, I have not gone to look at Christmas lights. We did get a freak ice storm thing last week that kind of put driving around and looking at lights out of the schedule though.

Also...I'm thinking of renaming le blog. Health and Snark doesn't feel like it's cutting it for me any more. If you have any suggestions, leave 'em in the comments below.

I'm glad to be back, but now it's time to be productive! (And by that, I mean I'm probably going to end up painting my nails while watching YouTube videos.)

Missing Me?

While I've been busy working 80 hours a week, I did manage to guest post last week over at Cupcakes and Curves when Brandi was on vacation.

It's a nice little makeup tutorial, so scroll through Brandi's site until you see it, and leave her some comments while you're at it!

Target Haul #2

So, I stopped by Target again last week and got some good stuff...part of it was on sale, too. Yay! :)

-Nature's Wick candle in Honeysuckle Jasmine smells SO GOOD. And it makes the wood crackling sound when it's burning. It has a nice throw and it was on clearance!
-Yankee Candle in Beach Party was also on smells like a sweeter version of the beach. I haven't burned it yet, but if it throws like other Yankee Candles, I love it already, hahaha.
-Sonia Kashuk small eyeshadow brush. This is my new favorite brush. I have some Sephora brand brushes, and this beats them! It's a little bit stiffer, which I was looking for, and just as soft. I've been using it daily.
-Bed Head Candy Fixation Totally Baked Volumizing and Prepping Hair Meringue. Okay, I really only bought this after I saw Brandi buy it a few weeks back. It SERIOUSLY smells like lemon meringue pie! I used it to make my hair curly, and it worked wonderfully. My only sad part about this is that I had used Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle in the shower, and that drowned out the smell of the lemony goodness :(
-Clean and Clear Morning Burst facial smells great and works great! I've been using it daily. It also came with a sample of Clean and Clear Morning Burst hydrating gel moisturizer...and I think I'll purchase a full size of it! It's tingly and almost minty...and I'm now loving gel moisturizers, lol.
-Organix Intensive Moisture Mask in Hydrating Macadamia Oil. Everyone's been loving macadamia oil lately, and rather than dump $30+ into the expensive stuff that everyone's been loving on YouTube, I got the cheap version. And honestly...I prefer my Aussie 3 Minute Miracle. I've only used this stuff once, but it didn't seem nearly as moisturizing.
-2 packs of earrings. Yay! I love me some Target multi-packs. Though, I do have to use their little clear rubber backs and not the backs that are supposed to be used, because they slide off too easily. I've lost too many earrings like that. And look at the adorable rose gold bows!!!
-A plastic organizing basket to corral my daily makeup. Since my boyfriend complains about it being all over the place. Heh. This was in the Dollar Spot could I pass it up when I needed it?
-A purple and gray tank top. Also on clearance. It makes my boobs look awesome, somehow, lol.

New Layout!

Hey guys!

I finally created a new layout here...all of my own creation! The last one was actually a tweaked one that I got from Kendra when I first started this blog of mine...Well, I had a little bit of extra time tonight and decided to fiddle around a bit. I'm pretty pleased with it :) There's still a couple of other little adjustments I'd like to make at some point, mostly over in the sidebar, but yep. I'm proud of myself. I did everything from the background to all the various tweaks everywhere. I know it's not anything SUPER special, but I like it. And I hope you guys do too!

Be on the lookout for a new post later this week, probably Thursday or Friday.
