Oh-My-Glamix! Talk about a HAUL!! And Happy Birthday To ME!

Updated 03/05/2011 & 03/06/2011

This is strictly my own personal opinion about the matter. All material uncovered was done through a public google internet search with a few different keyword entries.

Due to information uncovered and revealed about this company, I cannot in good conscience or good faith recommend anyone support this reportedly handmade, organic small business. If information had been disclosed prior to discovery by the shop owner herself, I would have no problem with continuing to purchase. Regretfully, the scope of the lie and how many different people it could have potentially affected and hurt leaves me no other choice than to say this is not an honest company to do business with.

That's right ladies and gents... It's my Official Birthday today. As 10:24 pm EST I officially joined the "Dirty 30 Club". And you know what?! I love it! A new decade... New adventures.... New places, friends... I plan to make it my best yet!

Well, instead of re-hashing some of the setbacks I've had since last Thursday in regards to my back... I'm going to jump right into the good stuff!! I had gone out of town for the weekend, since it was my Goddaughter's birthday party, and I had a blast with her! She just turned 3, and she's SO freaking cute! We also stopped to see my favorite Aunt, and made a stop at my middle sister's place before coming home. She surprised me with a delicious chocolate cake and a new Pandora bead for my bracelet! Needless to say, the rest of the ride I konked out and slept... Again. We had everything unpacked and I had settled into my recliner to stretch out a bit before bed... And had just opened the computer to get on and check all my sites.... And Dad comes out and stands behind my chair.

I knew he was there, but he didn't come forward. And I couldn't twist around to see what he was doing. So he looked at Mom, and she grinned at him.... And he plopped THIS into my lap:

Seriously!? I thought it was from my brother or some other friend from somewhere until I saw the first name... Cheri. I totally squealed! Literally "SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!! YESSSSSSSSSS! MAKEUP!" I put the computer aside, grabbed my camera and this is what we're diving in to! It was my box of goodies from winning Orglamix's 30 Days, 30 Ways Contest!

I, and many other Orglamix Addicts, absolutely love the scented petals that are included in each order. Be it one shadow, or her whole collection... These little petals are what makes me smile right off the bat. It's her own signature fragrance- and I'm telling you right now- if Cheri ever makes it available, I'm grabbing about 10 bottles because I love it that much. So my spirits immediately lifted when I unwrapped and un-taped my present! Now, I love when packages are personalized... So this really tickled me- especially considering my online persona:

I removed the brown paper packaging which kept everything from shifting around too much in transit, and this is what assaulted my eyes:

My vision blurred, and I brought up my hands to rub them for a second, thinking I needed to clear my vision. I thought I was seeing a lot more product than I actually had- you know, because the long car ride had me tired and I thought I was seeing things! Double vision, if you will! Blink, blink.

This was it! Holy Cannoli, I'm not imagining or having hallucinations.... There's so much stuff in there! It was like The Leaning Tower of Orglamix in there! And to top it off, there was a brush set included too! I mean.... W.O.W.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Digging deeper, I literally lifted bag... After bag... After bag... After bag... Of mineral goodness, glitteries, and awesomeness. Mom was beside me, also lifting them up and out... Both of us "oohhhing" and "aaahhhing" and "OMGOMGOMG" at the colors which were nestled inside. I took one quick look and said, woah... This is WAY more than the 75 colors Cheri said was the prize I was lucky enough to win. A quick count, while they were still in the bags, quickly confirmed she had sent me many more! I was in shock. I'm still in shock!

I decided right then and there, I needed to organize them. Why? I'm anal like that. Sort of. Only with my makeup. They all have to be spectrum sorted. So I got into it. Of course, there were some duplicates of colors I already have... And I'll tell you what I have in store for those in a bit. Spread out on my table, they looked like THIS:

Then I realized, I had to get the rest of my colors... Which were upstairs in my room... Up I went, down I came.... And we got to work. Once Mom and I had sorted them into their correct chromatic order, I placed them in these awesome plastic boxes we've been collecting. Now keep in mind, this is not my permanent storage for them.... It's temporary! Here at home, I have limited room for furniture in my bedroom, and the bathroom is way too small to keep my stash of makeup. So my "vanity" is my dresser with a huge mirror. These sit on the top of my dresser for now, keeping everything nice and organized and contained. I do store them upside down though so I can tell what colors I want to grab out of my jars!

My apologies for the funny look on my face and wan complexion... I was exhausted, and my back was really bothering me from the long day in the vehicle. And yes, I like Twilight. I'm a total Jacob fan! But... Can you tell I'm excited to finally have these in my paws?!?! I want to give a huge thank you to Cheri from Orglamix for all these wonderful products!!!

Getting back to another announcement... Since I do have some duplicates from this contest I've won, I am going to come up with a few different giveaway offers for you lovely fans so you can have a chance to try out these amazing cosmetics!! I'm going to toss around some ideas this week, and I hope to be offering the first one very, very soon!!

Happiness, glittery dreams and sparkling fairy dust to you all!
