Weekend Recap: A Rebel with a Paintbrush

October 3, 2014

A late weekend recap is better than not one at all! Friday after work, I bailed on the gym because I had a ton of errands to run. One of my stops was Ulta. The annual "Vice" makeup pallet by Urban Decay had just gone on sale so I of course had to scoop one up and I am super pleased with it. It is much better than last years and it came with a travel bag. I absolutely love the color selections. 

My errands took a few hours so once I was home, I made dinner, sipped on a little champagne, and did some work on my book. I rented "Blended" from Redbox and put it on when I got into bed. I fell asleep after 20 minutes; I was not into it. I was kind of disappointed actually. 

Saturday I spent most of the morning being lazy, but the weather was beautiful so I decided to make the most of it. We had a week of nonstop rain and gloom so I knew I wanted to incorporate sunshine into my workout. I walked to the gym for weights then jogged on the greenway.

After my workout, I came home to take a shower and get ready. I decided to do a grey smokey eye with my new makeup pallet and I loved the outcome. I thought it was sexy!

I spent the evening uptown with my best friend Kelly and her boyfriend Drew. We started at a Mexican restaurant called "La Paz" for Margarita's and painting. 

The painting of the evening was a tree in front of a sunset. I did a painting similar about a month ago so I felt like being a rebel. Thus my painting was a the silhouette of a serial killer, ha ha. The instructors were not amused. It represents my state of mind lately, kidding! Drew and Kelly's are below mine; their paintings were very good!

Once we finished painting, we had a lovely dinner on the patio, listened to live music, enjoyed a few more drinks, and soaked up the amazing view. 

The night was a lot of fun, but unfortunately I did not sleep at all. One of those nights again. That resulted in me taking it easy on Sunday; but I did get my usual food prep and cleaning done. That is about all I accomplished though. 


  1. Every night is better with a little champs! Margaritas and painting sound like SO much fun!!

  2. ohhh I love the pink bubbles too!! Sounds like a great weekend!

  3. You have such pretty eyes! I have no talent in the drawing department. I used to go to a little pottery painting place with my x's daughter and we would paint ceramics together. She loved it! AND she was better than me... she was 4 and 5 yrs old during that time.

  4. Gotta love a little Champagne to relax. Bummer that movie was meh. That Margarita looks so good. Sorry you didn't get a good nights sleep! :(

  5. I cannot draw, paint, sculpt or do anything even remotely artsy. If it doesn't come with glue or paint by numbers, I don't even try.

    It's great that you were able to get out with some friends and enjoy yourself. Weekly food prep is a huge accomplishment!

  6. HA! I love your painting, screw the instructors, it's your artistic vision.

  7. Haha. I love your "Serial killer" tree. I want to the new vice palette. I don't have any of the other ones but this one looks awesome. I love how your eye look turned out.

  8. I like those colors in that palette! Also, if you are paying to paint...you paint whatever your heart desires! Haha!
