Recent purchases

So I started my new job recently and I have purchased many things in the last month that I am absolutely in love with. My camera is being annoying so I don't have any pictures of anything that I bought but hopefully I can get my camera issues sorted out soon.
First off is mascara, I love mascara. Even if I'm running late, I'll put on mascara, concealer and lip balm/gloss. I also love layering different mascaras for a super cute effect. I bought Maybelline The Falsies Volum'Express mascara in blackest black and Rimmel London Sexy Curves mascara in the blackest shade they have. I swipe on the Rimmel mascara first then wait a bit and then apply the Maybelline mascara to get a really pretty look. I also purchased a new tinted moisturizer, because I have been looking for a new one to replace the one I got from mark cosmetics.  The one I got was by Hard Candy and it's actually really good. It covers but still looks natural, which I love. I also bought two new lip balms by Nivea, the Milk and Honey lip balm as well as the Fruity Shine Strawberry lip balm. I love what they do to my lips. I get soft, smooth lips that taste good and aren't sticky. From Sephora I bought the Kat Von D True Romance eyeshadow palette in Beethoven and the shades are wonderfully pigmented and smooth and I also bought the Sephora Collection Perfect 10 brush set and I love this set! It works beautifully and the bristles are so soft and non-streaky.
I recently went clothes shopping at one of my favorite vintage stores and I got five dresses and a pair of heels and a purse, all for $126.00 including taxes. I promise that I'll post pictures of all the clothes and makeup products that I bought.
Bookwise, I have purchased the first four books in the Sookie Stackhouse series and the Darkest Powers trilogy which is now available in one volume. I also bought the first two books written by V.C. Andrews, Flowers in the Attic and Petals on the Wind. I have a slight obsession with books so I think I'll do a post devoted entirely to books in the near future.
So this is all I'll write for now and I will post pictures and the list of all the books that I own and also ones that I enjoy and hope to buy soon. Love you all!!!

1st post ever

So everyone, this is my first post ever!! So since the title is my thoughts and favorite things, I decided to list some of my favorite things:
1) My role-playing Facebook accounts - So I have 3 other Facebook accounts for role-playing only. I role-play as Aphrodite for the group Dark Hunters Storm; Zoe for the group Dark Hunters Night; and Bella for Official Twilight Roleplayers. I spend about 12 hours role-playing a week.
2) Fanfiction - I am a voracious reader of fanfiction. I have a profile on that has a list of my favorite stories and authors. I read anything from Harry Potter fanfiction to Wizards of Waverly Place fanfiction. I have a strange mind so I read fanfiction with a wide range of relationships that can border pretty twisted.
3) Books - I read almost anything I can get my hands on. My preference tends to be vampire novels, but I'll read other books too.
4) Music - I just bought a new iPod Classic a few weeks ago and have only put on about 400 songs so far. I will listen to anything except country, classical, or instrumental. Feel free to suggest songs or artists in the comments!
