Hi all my lovely readers!
What a week I've been having! The good news is I really feel accepted into this "Beauty Guru" community with open arms. I'm so happy people have liked my tutorial and I can't wait to make more! The complete joy I feel being able to communicate with people with same passion as me is invigorating and really makes me want to carry on and do so much more! The bad news is I have been going through some conflict in my personal life with some of my friends. I hate conflict, period. It's really sad to me that friends can't be kind to each other or even be understanding. It breaks my heart to be on bad terms with people I really consider a part of family, but sometimes standing up for yourself or others is the hardest thing you have to do. But all the kind words from you and the support of my awesome family have helped me through. I'm still hurting, but time heals all wounds.
I wanted to share with you all my awesome evening Tuesday night. When I woke up that morning I really didn't think anything exciting would happen. I woke up, had coffee, and spent some time with my mom (who is on vacation from work) watching those silly makeover shows. Just about then I get a text from my best friend Jamie. She had an extra ticket to a concert that night and really needed someone to go with her. Who's concert was it you ask? I'll tell you in a second, first a little backstory on mine and Jamie's relationship.
Jamie is one of my very best friends and my former roommate when we were all going to school. I met her through her then boyfriend and it wasn't until they broke up that we became really close. We both were kind of in need of each other because we both were a little lonely. She was going through a break up and I was still really new to town and hadn't met a lot of people. We started hanging out basically a few days after her breakup and have kind of been besties ever since (we even joke that we're married, we call each other wifey lol)! She is great person! She's hilarious and probably the most organized person I've ever met! I love her bunches and bunches!
Okay now back to the concert story. The concert she had an extra ticket for was the NKOTBSB reunion concert! Now if you're thinking "NKOTBSB...WTH? " Let me explain. It's a combination of New Kids on the Block and Backstreeet Boys. Yes you heard right, TWO BOY BANDS in ONE CONCERT! At first I thought it would be fun. I don't go to a lot of concerts and I love '90's pop! Except back in my day, I was a NSYNC girl and you didn't cross enemy lines over to backstreet (well you did, you just didn't tell anyone). I had never heard anything from New Kids, but I thought they're the original so I'll probably like them. I was only worried that I wouldn't know any songs and I would be lost through out the evening. Boy I was wrong haha!
Not only did I know 95% of Backstreet Boys material, but I also new about three song from New Kids! The concert was an absolute blast! What was even better was that Jamie's mom went too and she was about the biggest BSB fan there! She knew all the songs and we did a couple duets and trio sing-a-longs while we were waiting for the concert to start. It felt really good to be singing all these songs that reminded me of my teenage years. I remember funny things that happened, places I went, people I met and friends I lost. Your teen years are a hard time, but you always go back to the best times when those old familiar songs start to play.
Oh and I also did special concert makeup (I should probably mention makeup right?)! I used my Urban Decay Ammo palette and did this really beautiful blue smoky eye with some gold tints! I really wanted to post the pictures, but for some reason they won't upload. I will post them on my facebook page (facebook.com/themakeupstudiobylaceycannon) and then you can have a look! I used a combination of Shattered (shimmery blue), Maui Wowie (shimmery light gold), and Oil Slick (shimmery black).
Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the concert!
I wish I could post more, but for some reason my pictures aren't compatible with my blog. Hmmm....
Well thanks once again for all the kind words. I really hope that you all enjoy my blog and it brings a little sunshine to your day. Please stay tuned for more videos and new (makeup related lol!) blogs!
Remember to stay fabulous!!
