Promised MTA pictures :O

Bahhhhhhh I am SWAPMED in school/work/internship work :( I always run on 5 hours of sleep and it is slowly destroying me ;_; but two weeks later, midterms will arrive which ultimately means we are half way through the semester! horray!........... sorta haha.

So you know how I promised I'd show you those MTA pictures.. I finally have them! Only two but it definitely does show how our public transportation looks for the most part. It's MUCH nicer in the nicer parts of Manhattan but I don't usually go there :( I'm just showing you how BAD it can be...

Basically that part is yellow (mostly) because people are supposed to stand behind it. They must stand behind it and spit gum there instead.

^cleaner than usual. I always find empty bottles, empty chips, earrings, gum, food, unrecognizable miscellaneous things, and such. Much cleaner part of the track I guess!

Um... why was throwing away your chewed gum on public property EVER acceptable?! I know in some parts of the world this isn't even allowed :( I wish it weren't allowed here and the police ENFORCED it. I always see people get tickets for passing in between train carts (it's illegal here, not sure about anywhere else). I think this is worse than passing in between carts (less dangerous but so much grosser!).

You can imagine how rats live here...

I have a huge haul post coming up... look out for it ! :D

NOTD & MUA Swap Swatch!

I never keep promises!
:( sorry today isn't Tuesday and I don't have those MTA pictures I promised...
I thought my phone's camera would suffice but the lighting isn't that great so I decided I'd try again next week with my real camera. And there was no entry Tuesday because I took a nap Monday night at 9PM, woke up at 12AM and fell back asleep 5AM. So basically I got NO work done Monday and ended up doing everything Tuesday so I didn't have time to blog :( Long story short, my sleeping pattern was ruined but I fixed it last night :) I went to class today with 9 hours of sleep!

Today's post will be a NOTD & MUA Swap Swatch!

Kind of a strange color. It reminds me a bit of purple aluminum foil and purple cellophane put together. Polishes used:
_Essie's first base base coat (why do they use two bases??)
_Love and Beauty: Purple
_Confetti: Purple Pizzaz
_some random top coat..

I only wanted to use the Purple Pizzaz but I realized it was wayyyy to sheer so I topped it on top of regular purple polish and this is the color I got. I'm on the fence about it but I didn't feel like erasing it.

MUA Swap Swatch!
I loveee makeupalley because you can swap goodies there! :) This was my first swap and it was for my rollerball Jessica Simpson fancy perfume for this gorgeous Stila eyeshadow Trio in Gold Glow.

^generous freebies :)

^swatches - the colors are quite pigmented although I'm not really feeling the middle brown color. Still useable but I've seen better. The other two however, are really pretty in person! I was worried it'd be way too sparkly but I love the frosty-looking finish :)

Ah I'm so hungry ;_; its almost 1AM though! I'm gonna wake up early so I can eat earlier muahaha.

Good night!
