Hello out there...is anyone still reading my blog???
Well, if you have then you know everything beauty related for me came to a huge stand still about mid September...and I prefer to give more of the update here on my blog...verses going into it on my YT channel. So I might direct those who are wanting to know the who, what, where, how, when and why...but for those of you who actually pay attention you will know before everyone else!!!
SO HERE'S THE QUESTION: WHERE THE HECK HAVE I BEEN????
Alright, so as everyone knew...I was in Germany with my mister who was Active Duty Military...well all of that has changed. AND NO, I'm still with my mister...we are just no longer military persons.
That's right, my mister separated from the military late last month...which means I am NO LONGER a Military Spouse or Dependent. I am NO LONGER living in Germany...I am NO LONGER a stay at home housewife.....Boy that was a mouthful.
QUESTION: WHERE ARE YOU NOW?
Me and the Mister are currently living in southern California...with my family at the moment. So, if you know where my home town is...then you know where I am at.
QUESTION: WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO NOW?
I actually just started a job, October 24th...as an Administrative Assistant/Receptionist for a local Sheet Metal Company that does alot of jobs with NASSCO (military related company) and Solar Turbines (another large company). I see there being alot of potential for professional growth, plus it allows me the time to get back in touch with my roots. Also a huge perk is it's a Monday through Friday job, which means I will still have the weekends and evenings to do my own thing (whether it;s YouTube videos, freelancing still with my Make Up Artistry, or hanging out with my mister, family and friends).
QUESTION: ARE YOU STILL GOING TO BE DOING YOUTUBE?
Of course I still plan on doing videos..and blog postings. I'm trying to get into a routine of things...and with getting off of work before 5 pm it will make it nice to have some "me" time. Although I do need to figure out a work out schedule as well, considering I really am not a fan of trying to fight people at the gym for cardio machines...as I am SO NEEDING the gym! Coming back and trying to find a job was pretty stressful and I really didn't get to the gym as much as I liked.
QUESTION: WHAT'S IT LIKE LIVING BACK AT YOUR PARENT'S PLACE?
Needless to say it's been interesting trying to adjust to being back in my parents place...as I really haven't lived here longer than 3 months (when I was a student...as I went away to college) or 2 weeks (as an adult...living on my own or being married to my mister). With five different personalities in a house...plus 4 dogs...Yup, Reckless has buddies to hang out with now. And 1 cat...it's been alot going on. Plus trying to figure out chores, dinner schedules and actual space/privacy as been sooooo fun to deal with...hence why it has taken me so long to finally get a video recorded and uploaded to my YouTube channel.
No matter what though, I am very thankful that my family has been here for my mister and I....it's been a very rough transition going from military life to civilian life...and it's good that someone has our backs.
QUESTION: WILL THERE BE ANY CHANGES TO YOUR YOUTUBE WITH RELOCATION?
Of course, things always need to change up..so that things do not get boring. I am very sad that we have left Germany...as I won't be able to properly finish my Living in Germany Series...nor In the Bar with my bestie..Chrissy...My lovely Jew. But I will try to come up with some fresh ideas of what people might be looking for. I'm thinking of doing more blogging in regards to what it's been like trying to adjust with life out of the military...cause it is strange.
QUESTION: HOW IS JOE DOING? WILL HE BE MAKING APPEARANCES STILL?
Considering Joe had put in 7.5 years in the military...he is taking a bit longer to get adjusted to things. Plus he is doing alot of classes offered by California's EDD to help him prepare for job searching, resume working, interviews..etc. Had I not been lucky and got hired..I more than likely would be joining in with those classes. But someone has to bring in the bacon, so I'm taking care of my family.
But yes, I think he will still make an appearance in a video every now and then...more than likely my younger brother might be doing so as well. Considering he is another YouTuber...and likes to do extreme costuming and characters...so perhaps my channel will be in for a treat.
QUESTION: WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO BE FOR HALLOWEEN?
Not certain yet, the other weekend Joe and myself went with my parents to a Halloween themed party at a local veterans office..I was Lady Gaga from her Born This Way video (yup skeleton face with a suit...I had quite a bit of interesting reactions with that outfit). I think Joe and I might end up passing out candy that night, as it's a week night. Don't know if we are going to dress up...and so far no other major party invites. Guess I'll have to keep you updated.
QUESTION: WILL YOU STILL BE DOING FREELANCING IN THE STATES?
I honestly can not wait to do freelancing here in California...although I will have to do alot of TFP/TFC (Time for Print or Time for CD) to get my name out. Considering I had a handful of photographers who liked to use me for shoots, besides the random military wife who wanted make up lessons.
PLANS FOR FUTURE
Going to do a small giveaway on my SoCalSwthrt1107 FaceBook Fan Page when I get to 50 likes...and another giveaway for a MAC Cosmetic's goodie when that page gets to 100 likes. Plus I will keep regular updates all related to my YouTube channel on that page.
I plan on doing a small giveaway for my YouTube channel for my birthday, anniversary, Joe's birthday...as sharing is caring...details will be up soon for that.
And I will be hoping to do more reviews of products that I have been using faithfully since our move from Germany to the States.
If you at all wonder why my product selection for items for favorites, if and when I do tutorials, and reviews is somewhat limited is because I have had to condense and have mostly basics for my own personal make up collection. I know how is the world is a make up addict suppose to survive without her goodies or space to showcase all her goodies. Trust me, I have been slowly but surely having to deal with this. However on a good note I have been slowly and steadily using the products that I want to finish up (IE Project 2011 Finish what You Started). Considering most of the items I have had in my collection have been with me for a bit, plus they are drug store brands. I think it will make for interesting reviews.
Anyways, just wanted to give you the 411 on me...if you have any questions, comments or concerns...you can leave them in the comment section or send me a message on my Youtube channel. Facebook me...or tweet to me!!
