I know I suck at this... I mean I keep saying I'm coming back and then I don't... but this time I am making more of an effort to keep you linked into my life. How? You may be asking... well... I created a Tumblr account. Which will allow me to upload pictures and things of my makeup, fashion, and shoes on a daily basis until I can get my lens fixed or purchase another one. Now that the weather is nicer I may just try to work around the horrible lens .. but who knows. Anyway... my tumblr name is similar to my blog name so that you will always be able to find me. divaindeepthought.tumblr.com is how you can stay up-to-date on my crazy life...
I know this post is short an sweet... but it was just to remind you that I'm still here... Love and miss all you!!!! hasta la proxima ~besitos~

So I realized lately that there are 2 things that wake me up in the morning. Shoes and makeup... and since I am so financially strapped since moving into the house and can't afford any more shoes... Makeup is how I get joy these days. Different looks, and colors with different lippies (occasionally).
Fashion still brings me joy but because nothing fits anymore and again I mention that I don't have any money... I can't buy anything that fits properly so I make do with what I have and its not anything I’m usually super excited to blog about... but there are those days where I am exceedingly proud of my makeup. So much so that I’ve tried to be consistent with my constant Instagram-ing it... but maybe I can begin posting it here so that I can keep my blogging promise.
I don’t know if most of you are following me on instagram as well… but I thought I would show you my favorite beauty supplies that have me excited to do my makeup lately…
Now as for eyeshadow… I love MAC but I am not so concerned with always using top of the line eyeshadow. I am a firm believer that if you have on a great eyeshadow base, you can wear the cheapest eyeshadow in the world and no one would know who made the eyeshadow, because it would last all day… My eyeshadow base of choice is MAC Groundwork Paint pot
Like I said I love all types of eyeshadows but I do tend to to lean toward bright colors. I like MAC, Motives, Sugarpill, BH Cosmetics and Bitch Slap! but will use just about any brand as long as it doesn’t have too much shimmer. All that glitter seems to be too much for a woman my age. Ordered a new brand but I haven’t tried them yet… so I may update this post later.
These are my 2 favorite mascaras. I also like Maybelline Falsies and Great Lash Big. I do use other brands and play around to see which ones will give me the best definition. Benefit is probably the most I’ve paid for mascara for a while. But Maybelline and L'Oreal will work in a pinch for most looks.
As for liners I will use anything that is super dark and black. I have Ulta, Loreal, Badgal liner, and Kiss for my lower lash line. For my upper lash line I will sometimes use a pencil but usually I will use the Maybelline Gel Liner. I have tried other companies (not MACs Fluidline as of yet) but it is seriously my favorite.
My foundations are usually the same all the time. I have the MAC Studio Sculpt and I have Makeup Forever HD foundation and that is usually all I use. I use studio fix as a powder set or Bare Escentuals. On the days that I don’t want to wear foundation I use BB Cream from Maybelline in Dark.
Now a days I usually tend to go with a nude lip because with my super bright eyeshadow looks… It looks best with a nude lip. But on the days when I don’t feel like doing a bold look for my eyes. I wear a bold lip. I am totally in love with Brazen Berry and Hot Plum from the New Maybelline Vivid Lip Collection.
Other must haves in my makeup closet (yes… it does take up almost the entire linen closet… but I digress)… here are the final products that wet my whistle when it comes to makeup.
I love my banana and nutmeg powder for highlighting… makes my word go round as I get little rest and it hides my puffy eyes (most of the time). I also love my Coastal Scents concealer palette that I use to highlight my brow bone. And my ybf eyebrow pencil helps to complete my look. What do you do for your makeup routine? Are there any products that you would DIE if they discontinued? Do you use any of the products I mentioned above? Hasta la proxima ~besitos~

So I haven't been blogging... I know... but I couldn't seem to get enough energy to photo myself before or after work. I have the best intentions... but yet... nothing. But if you follow me on Instagram... You know I do take photos of my shoes and occasionally my outfits.... thought I would share some of my favorites here...
I promise to do better in 2013 Happy New Year ~besitos~

I got these boots. And when I got these boots I couldn’t imagine how I was going to wear them. Then last night, this outfit came to me and the excitement of trying it out was making me crazy. Then I had to figure out a way to take the pictures when hubby is not around. So I apologize if the quality of these pictures is horrible. I tried to focus as best I could. I just got home (at 9pm…) and I didn’t sleep last night… so even though I want to write a whole post on the Potluck we had at work today… all I can think about is my pillow…
So I am trying to keep up blogging but with the holidays coming, the hours I’m working, and the lack of sleep… I don’t know how well I will do in the coming weeks. How do you think you will make it through the holidays? Do you have anything special planned? Hasta la proxima ~besitos~
What I Wore After NOT Sleeping:
Black Dress (worn as top): Dorothy Perkins
Black/White Stripe Skirt: eBay
Mustard scarf: Target
Fishnet Tights: Torrid
Mustard Boots: Shoedazzle
Black/White earrings: beauty supply

Today I was not in a good mood. I know you will think this is TMI… but I recently moved “cubicles” and now I’m surrounded by women and I swear our cycles all synchronized. So I’m bloated, crampy, and I’m getting the tar beat out of me at work. I still love my job, just a bit stressed is all. So I wasn’t in a good mood so I felt like a bear. So I posted on our IM system at work… Don’t poke the bear… a pink bear… but still a bear lol.
The highlight of my day… hubby showed up to my job with some apple cider and macaroni & cheese (yes… he gets me!!). And I came home to find that my banana powder had arrived… WOOO HOOOOO!!!! Now I can take some Nyquil (yeah… have a cold too). So I thought I would upload my look because I love these boots and this scarf with this look. You probably can’t tell in this picture but I have on floral tights as well. When you’re having a bad day, what do you do to turn it around? Does packages arriving make you smile like they make me smile? Or is comfort food and wine your go to happy maker? Hasta la proxima ~besitos~
What I Wore While Being Grumpy:
Denim Crop Jacket: Torrid
Black Sweater Dress: Burlington Coat Factory
Floral Tights: Assets (JCPenney)
Fuschia Scarf: Target
Fuschia Slouch Boots: Shoedazzle
Fuschia Leopard Earrings: flea market

So today I thought I would try something different and tell you about 2 things that happened to me in regards to my lashes recently…
I’ve always had short lashes, and I felt that my makeup looks would look better if I had longer lashes. So off I went to the the local spa and got lash extensions. Below you will see a picture of the “AFTER” affect.
And I couldn’t have been happier…. until… the removal. When I removed them I lost 90% of my lashes. I went from having “okay” lashes… to having barely anything for mascara to stick to. It was depressing. So because of that I stopped wearing makeup completely. It sounds silly but I think lashes bring an entire look together. And therefore, I felt why bother putting on makeup if the look was going to look “incomplete”.
So I’ve been using my usual mascaras which would include one from Sephora (a plumper volume lash mascara), Maybelline Falsies, and Loreal Power Volume. All of which I would mix and match and still I wasn’t getting the desired look. I knew my lashes were growing back… but just at a painstakingly low pace…. Then yesterday I read on AshleyGaGa’s blog (one of my fellow #blmgirls) that in order to NOT cause lash damage with mascara that I should tr Maybelline Great Lash BIG (which only costs $4.44 at Wal-mart). Needless to say… I loved it so much… I was inspired to do a makeup look… I hope you enjoy… Have you ever tried lash extensions? If so, would you do it again? What mascara do you use daily? Do you think the lashes above would help the look below? Hasta la proxima ~besitos~

So I know I’ve been gone for a long time. I know that in that time you have given up on me and you now believe that I am no longer a blogger… but… I’m BACK!!! And for good this time. Here is what happened…
I was swamped at work (love my job and I don’t mind that I was/am swamped) and because of that I didn’t have time to take pictures. I would get home so late that I was too exhausted or frumpled (combination of frumpy & rumpled) to take pictures. If I did get home at a decent hour I had to find a place to takes pictures so that I didn’t get too much attention by passersby. Here is what changed…
I MOVED INTO A HOUSE!!!! So now I can take pictures on my deck (or wherever) instead of stalking places to use to take pictures. And because hubby fell off a ladder (yeah… I know) and has a fracture in his foot (along with 2 screws after the surgery) he is home to take pictures for me. And before you ask, yes, he is feeling much better. He is in physical therapy and on the mend.
Boy if you knew what happened leading up to the house you would be like… WOW. Here’s a quick recap: Was robbed (someone broke the window of my SUV and stole my purse in the backseat), hubby’s truck was towed day after his surgery by my old apartment complex, and got into an accident with the rental truck on moving day. Anyway… all those things were sent to try to break me… but I was stronger then I thought. Now we are living here and I am the only one working right now so things are tight. But I couldn’t be happier. I am sooo much happier. Now… if I could only get unpacked… lol
Now that I am back to blogging… I will be back to reading blogs and commenting. I hope that you will come back and be a fan again. I’ve missed you all so much. If you have instagram please add me… I am @deepqueendiva I do a “Daily Shoe Porn” where I give you insight to the shoes I’m wearing… and you know how I feel about shoes.
So don’t be surprised that the clothes may look familiar… but I am not shopping right now because… well… obvious reasons. So that leads us to the question of the day… Have you put yourself on a shopping diet lately? What was your reason for doing so? Has it made you be more creative with the the pieces you have? Hasta la proxima ~besitos~
