"Me" Update!

Hey everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful day. ^_^

I drove out to the local QFC to buy some Mega Millions lottery tickets tonight!  The prize amount is half a billion dollars!! Whoa! I think all our lives would become a lot more comfortable with that kind of money. ^_^  If I win, I'll share the winnings with my reader friends who leave a comment in this post up until the drawing time! lol

Last week Thursday, bf won the raffle at Muckleshoot Casino in Auburn, Washington!  There must have been over a couple thousand raffle tickets in the bin! It was a really fun day for both of us. He ended up winning $450 cash.  My parents were so excited when they heard the news. lol They're really into casino raffles. Haha, my Mom called me randomly during the work day to remind me to remind bf to buy Mega Millions lottery tickets because he's on a lucky strike!

Winning money sounds so much more fun than earning these days. lol

We're going to visit boyfriend's family this weekend in Vancouver, Washington.  You know, we gotta show Vannie, our bride to be some love in planning her big day with Tony.  We're going to practice some more "engagement photo" makeup.  The woman doesn't like shimmery eyeshadow (she doesn't care for Jill Stuart shadows!!), can you believe it?!  I'm going to practice matte eyeshadow looks on her this weekend using my handy dandy Naked2 Palette by Urban Decay. :)

I just wanted to give you a "me" update!  I am completely obsessed with Instagram!  It's such a great idea and I recently watched Kevin Rose's interview with Kevin Systrom, creator of Instagram!  Check it out!

I've always been a tech nerd fangirl at heart. :) I love Kevin's Foundation series!

 I picked up some Essie goodies at Target the other day and I'm in love with the Smooth Trick, Deep-Conditioning Cuticle Oil!  The packaging is genius and it's really the best $7.79 I've spent in a long time. :)  I will get into more detail in a few weeks.  I use it all the time!  It's just super easy to use, and mess free. My cuticles look and feel amazing. :)  I have yet to try the Disappearing Trick, but if my friend Holly uses it, I know it's good (and its also the reason I went to buy it)!  Check out her nail video here. :D

I leave you with some photos from today.
My Instagram is DSKJewelry, surprise, surprise. :)
 Sleeping cutie!!
I always start my morning with these two lovely ladies, Kathie Lee & Hoda.
I love them!


  1. your mega millions tickets look so different from ours! was there a line when you had to buy them? I stopped by the gas station and there was not only a line but a whole bunch of people were off to the side picking their own numbers!

    did you do the random numbers or pick your own?? :)

    and i like your sharing idea! i told everyone i know that if I win, they get a million dollars! LOL because i don't keep in touch with that many people anyways.

    would you do the cash payout or the 26 year thing? ah its so fun to talk about LOL

  2. You & Minh always seem to be winning something at the casinos! I'm so jealous cause I have never one anything more than $20! Must be good karma that you guys have! Good luck on the lotto! I'm going to have to buy a ticket, too! At least for the experience :p

  3. @Gjee The cash option! :) I used the "RedBox" of lottery machine to buy my tickets. There usually aren't any lines. I always do easy pick! It's more random and fun that way. :D

    Minh and I usually forget about our lottery but we definitely will be checking Friday's drawing for sure!!

    @serah Yes! Yes! Join the fun! :) I love hearing about it everywhere I go. Half a billion dollars is HUGE! I haven't seen a big prize pot like this before. Good luck to you!! Remember, you have to play, bet to win! lol

  4. Ahh the Mega Millions sounds so exciting. I hope you guys win!

  5. Ooo good luck with your tickets! I've never bought lottery tickets before lol.

    Wally looks so cute :) I've never seen those Essie nail treatments, looking forward to the cuticle oil review.

  6. I've been away from blogger for so long now, but I'm glad to see you're doing great! I've always wanted to try the Essie cuticle stuff. I love using nail polish, but I've never invested in things to help out my hands. Can't wait to read what you have to say about them! And I love Instagram too! I will probably always be a Hipstamatic girl at heart, but now that you can combine both I have been using them like crazy! :D Are you sharing your instagram name?

  7. I bought 10 tickets for me and my bf! It was up to $540 million yesterday afternoon so it's probably even higher now.

  8. That's such a huge jackpot!! Good luck, Steph! Hopefully the winning streak gives you more luck!

    I've seen those two Essie treatments and I'm definitely curious about them. Can't wait for the review! :)

  9. theres going to be a winner tonight! they reported that every possible combination of numbers have been chosen via easypic so there is going to be at least one winner, probably multiples!

  10. i brought only 2 today. one for my hubby and one for myself. if luck is on our side. we only need to buy one lol ... goodluck!~
