    Another Shopping List & Other Stuff . . .

    yes... another shopping list.

    i like to make lists for clothes, makeup, groceries, to-do's... i like making lists in general. Always have, even when back in third grade. I've always felt more at ease when things are organized that way. Plus, after I lay everything out, I'm able to see and eliminate the things I don't need.

    So! here it goes...

    FOREVER21 (you know it!)

    I LOVE the back


    possibility for grandma and grandpa's anniversary party that's on july 25th
    with a cardigan, black belt, and edgy ankle boots. [but if the dress is that short on me, i probably won't get it... I have some of the dresses that are on the models and they aren't as short on me as they are on the models]

    I'M IN LOVE! ME WANT!!!!!
    But I'm torn between these colors... i don't know which one to pick: espresso or ash??

    I still need short sleeve cardigans... when i went to the actual forever21 store they didn't have any >:(
    Honestly, I hate shopping IN the actual forever21 store, specifically the mall of america one, BECAUSE you cannot find anything you are looking for in there, not because it's organized by color and everything is bunched together that way but because they have a whole lot of nothing in there. The store is FILLED with clothes, things are thrown around EVERYWHERE, but at the same time, they don't have the items that I have on my lists. They have everything BUT the stuff on my list.. go figure. Next Saturday, my friend and I are going to a different mall that has a F21, and i heard from a few people that that forever is alot better than the one at Mall of America, so i want to check that out, and if I see nothing there, I guess I'll have to order online. I like ordering from the website much better. I already know my sizes and I've never had a problem with getting the wrong size or anything like that and I don't have to deal with the mess. Only disadvantage... waiting for the package to arrive.

    Today I went to Marshalls, Sally's Beauty Supply, and Walmart.
    At Marshalls I got bronze gladiators by steve madden. It also came in a silvery, pewter color that I also wanted but they didn't have any my size =(. So I'll probably get these black gladiators from Charlotte Russe. (I like to have a brown of something and a black of something because some outfits/colors go better with one or the other, same with gold and silver)

    The original reason why I wanted to go to marshalls was because I wanted the Chi Silk Infusion, but for some reason I didn't get it.? But instead I went to Walmart and got a heat protectant spray by Treseme, a leave-in conditioner by Dove, and a scrunch spray by Aussie.

    At Sally's, I got 10 inch hair extensions because I wanted my extensions to look a tad more natural than my super long 18" ones... MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT. I HAD NO IDEA HOW LONG MY HAIR GREW! In my mind, I have this idea of how short my hair is, despite the fact that I look in the mirror everyday and see my hair--- I start making my extensions, I hold it up to my head... SAME LENGTH AS MY NATURAL HAIR. I kept saying over and over.... my hair did not get this long overnight... what the heck happened... You can't return the hair... I already cut the track up anyway... so I'm just gonna give it to my sister, and I ended up just trimming my 18" ones, also I cut my own hair today because I was extremely bored... I also colored it using medium copper brown by ion from sallys, with a 30 volume since my hair was close to black to begin with. 

    I was going to do a video on this haul but I didn't and now it's pretty much too late so I'll blog about it.

    Marissa / Marissa1217 from youtube, went and done it again. I told her I DID NOT WANT ANYTHING FROM HER FOR MY BDAY. Because she already did enough by surprising me back a few months ago and I was so grateful for that, she does not need to do anything else for me for the rest of my life LOL. But she goes and gets me a present anyway, and its a gift card for MAC. Geebuz, if you're reading this Marissa, thank you AGAIN, I know I've thanked you a million times already but I really can't thank you enough.

    So I used the giftcard for the 25% off SUMO sale that was going on back in June.
    In the picture I also threw in the items that I hauled from when I went and got my makeup done at the pro-store because I didn't do a video on that either... yes SLACKER.

    and last of all I would like to say Happy FIRST Birthday to my little cousin Olivia aka LING LING [what a cute nickname]. A candid picture my aunt took of us while we were playing together a few weeks ago lol

    some of my birthday pictures

    here are some pictures from the night i went out for my birthday. I got my makeup done at mac because i decided that i was too lazy to do my own makeup and i was curious to see what my favorite mac girl, alyssa, could come up with. We called this look the sunset eyes because of the colors, she she used a pink eyeshadow (i didn't pay attention to which one but it looked like a matte hot pink color), vibrant grape, and bright future, for the main colors. On my lips I wore brave new bronze lipstick with gold rebel on top, and as for my face A WHOOOLLLE LOTTA CRAP since my skin is so horrible. By the time she was done, my skin looked super even, soft, bronzed, and glowy!

    eyeliner smeared just a tad because i was crying from laughing so hard =X

    i look pregnant in this picture because the tool underneath the dress rouched up when i sat down lol

    and this is how the night ended

    ttyl girls!

    Thursday, June 11, 2009


    i've neglected this thing for a really long time, as well as my youtube account, although i still log on to watch videos or to read other people's blog posts.

    ive been busy with birthday stuff, posting up pics soon. I'm always slow with posting up pictures because i'm really lazy when it comes to cropping pics and adding watermarks on this macbook without adobe. adobe photoshop is the only program i've been use to and i don't have it on here. someone told me about gimp or whatever, and said it would be exactly like adobe. yeah its not... there are similar features but it's still confusing to me so eh...

    i have a doctors appt with the opthamologist. 2 days ago i woke up and my left eye was red, burning, and wouldnt stop watering, and it hurt to close and open up my eyes, the second day (today) the burning stopped but it was still red, and it hurt to move my eye, and my bottom lid is swollen, and it looks like there's a stye there. also with my left eye, it seems to get dry really fast, and there is constantly a haze over that eye, or a gel-like substance that goes over my eye or over my contact... so yeah... its about time i get that checked out.

    i also need to get my dang wisdom teeth taken out. my teeth use to be straight, and now they are crooked because of overcrowding caused by these wisdom teeth. i tried to get them pulled out almost 2 years ago, but i basically got screwed over by the dental place, and thats a long story so yeah.

    i hauled from mac when i got my makeup done there, i will talk about that later as well because i am too lazy to post up pictures (i suck at this blogging thing obviously, but its just a way to get my thoughts out)

    i colored my hair because i was really curious about the frederick fekkai hair color. i got the dark brown and it ended up making me hair black, sooo yeah =/ but whatever.

    I need to pay off my credit cards and save up money if i want to move out soon. so i will be job hunting and attempting to pick up shifts like a maniac. so i might not be making videos anytime soon as well. who knows.

    and that is it for now.

    Hair Color (PICTURE HEAVY)

    I get bored of my hair color VERY EASILY
    my hair color has been all different shades of brown, blonde, and black .
    When it's light, I want my dark hair back, when it's dark, I always have the urge to go and get highlights. I also can't decide what fits me well, what looks the best on me .

    dark brown:

    highlighted (my senior pic... loooonng time ago)

    carmels and golds?


    and BLACK

    another thing that made me think hair color was seeing the Fekkai hair color system when I was looking around Sephora.
    I was watching the demo, and the hair color is made up of all sorts of butters, leaving your hair super soft and more moisturized than even before you colored it. THAT definitely intrigued me
    and if I were to try it, I'd want to try the dark brown or medium brown

    this is the color chart that's on sephora's website

    BUT what I'm kinda hesitant about is coloring over my stylist's (heather) work! I ALWAYS feel bad when I color over her work, because I always end up going back to her anyway and for some weird reason I think that she MIGHT think that I colored over it because I didn't like it or something, when actually I really do love my hair and that's why I always go back to her. Although her services are VERY pricey, especially since she got promoted at the salon. 

    Ladies, if you find a hair colorist that colors your hair exactly the way you imagine you want it to be, STICK WITH THEM. I found my colorist, I still have yet to find a person that CUTS my hair perfectly.

    BUT anyway! So I don't know if I want to go ahead and color it which would be 30.00 if i try the Fekkai color, or just get my roots done by Heather, which would be 100 something. BUT I also don't know if I even want to color my hair darker again, or leave my highlighted hair the way it is. I don't have a recent picture of myself, just my youtube videos...

    I DON'T KNOooOOooW

    oh yeah, the camera i want is on sale right now for 179.99 at bestbuy!
    I asked mi madre and she gave me the typical answer "go tell your dad" =/

    Saturday, May 16, 2009

    i'm gonna ask madre for a new camera for my bday

    I hate the sony digital camera that we have. In all of the pictures, everyone's face would just be really really pale looking, even when I'd adjust the settings and try out different modes, either our faces looks white or yellow. I've had good experiences with Canon though, we had a canon before the sony (little adrian broke it). So I'm going to ask la mia madre for the canon powershot sd790IS.

    i looked up pictures on amazon of photos that owners of this camera have taken, and they look pretty good. Another feature that I like is the color accent doo dad.

    here are some of the pictures that had me sold:

    I need some

    Short Sleeved Cardigans!

    I haven't been working much these past few weeks because

    1. I haven't been scheduled very many days because of budgeting at work
    2. my availability was kinda sucky due to school &
    3. I didn't want to work very much during the school year anyway

    so right now I can't really go on my major shopping sprees and I always have to think twice about if i really need something, but the answer is always NO I DON'T NEED IT, so then i have to ask myself "okay do i really really really really want this, or do i already have something like this" because usually the stuff i gravitate towards to are things that I already have (because I LIKE IT duh lol) and then I end up with ten thousand versions of an item that is BASICALLY the same, and that goes for clothes, as well as makeup. Who knows how many ruffly white tops i have, black long cardigans, and who knows how many NUDE colored lipsticks I have. So I need to stop that.

    I also need to pay off some stuff like my macy's card and credit card. The transaction didn't go through on time so NOW for both the bills for next month, I have to pay 75.00 for each card. so with this next paycheck i will pay one of them, and then the next paycheck i will pay for the other...

    [sorry, i'm just getting my financial thoughts all out, trying to sort out things, i really should make this private because no one cares but eh...]

    I also need to make a payment for school, that's another 30.00

    I actually NEED new sandals so that I will need to get with my next paycheck...

    I really want to go to the CCO but i don't NEED any more makeup FOR NOW and I should probably wait for giftcards from my bday or something.

    I need to buy a present for my best friend (her bday is a day after mine, cool huh [okay that sounded nerdy])

    okay, so I guess I really can't go shopping with this next paycheck, BOO!

    what am i going to do with myself for the next 2 weeks...

    {edit} I forgot, I need a mirror, because with my vanity, I can't get close to the mirror to be able to see what I'm doing, FYI i am extremely BLIND! I can't see past 3 inches away from my face... horrible.

    Birthday Look

    I received the ULTA ad a couple weeks ago in the mail. As I was flipping through, I came across a picture for the Stila cosmetics, and as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted to recreate that look for my birthday. It is gorgeous!

    I'm a little confused that the products aren't even listed online, but only in the ads. Hopefully I find the products at the actual store. I was at sephora last week and I didn't see any of the products, and at sephora's website, they didn't even have the collection listed. I also tried looking at Stila's website to see if maybe they had the picture and list what they used on the model, but the site is down (probably because Stila is rethinking their financial stuff). But anyway, in the Ulta ad it says that it's Stila's Summer Collection inspired by Bollywood. It sucks that in the ad they don't tell you in the fine print what the model is wearing so I'm going to have to figure that out on my own, and that means I probably don't even need to buy anything from the collection either. I can try to use whatever I have. I'm guessing there's gold in there? because the palette of the collection has gold in it? lol.
    smoked out with a brown??? Maybe you can tell me what you think it is.

    So since the picture is NO WHERE on the internet, I had to go to the browse ad on ulta's site and then do the whole print page thing and save it to get the picture. That explains that weird arrow in the picture.

    here it is:

    any suggestions on what eyeshadows i could use? probably mac shadows since that's mostly what i have?

    and if you're curious, this is the stuff from the collection


    I always have this constant yet sudden urge to go shopping for both clothes and makeup but mostly makeup even though the last thing that I need is more makeup. I haven't been to the CCO in awhile so I really want to go back and see if they have anything new, last time I went they didn't have anything. The time before that they had a whole bunch of stuff that I wanted and have been wanting for the longest time, but all those are gone =(

    & even though I was at the mall of america last week, I didn't get very much, a dress, jeans, and accessories...
    Speaking of which, I found my birthday dress-- it is a pretty good dupe of the bcbg dress I posted in my other blog. It's the origami dress from forever21. it was only 27.80. I got it kinda early just in case i can't find anything the weekend before my bday. If i do end up finding an even better dress closer to my birthday, whatever dress i don't wear, i'll be wearing to my grandparent's anniversay party that will be in July.

    So, since i didn't get very much, the next time I go shopping, it'll be more summer/spring clothes and whatever.
    Gladiator sandals
    more skinny jeans
    more flats
    a few dresses
    tops, etc.

    here are some outfits from forever21 that best describes my style. I usually gravitate towards bohemian, rock, and vintage styles as well as classic looks that consists of a long tee, jeans, and a cardigan. I love black, i love bows, I love cameos, I love pearls, gold, BOOTS. yeah lol

    Also, I am REALLY REALLY REALLY excited about this.
    I just spoke to Yasumi of Worship @ the House of Blues via email about a necklace. I saw a couple necklaces of her pearly girly collection and i was IN LOVE! I had that type of necklace pictured in my head for years, and i stumbled across her blog and I was just amazed because THERE IT WAS! She doesn't make duplicates, so I asked if she could make me my own pearly girly. She responded to my email so quickly! She told me that she was working on a new pearly girly this weekend and she described to me what it would include, and it just sounded PERFECT. I can't wait to see what she comes up with! and i am super super excited. It's not even made yet but i am just super excited to get my hands on it and wear it. I think Yasumi is amazing and super talented and I have a feeling that I will be buying more pieces from her in the future. There's just something cool about knowing that you are the only person in the whole wide world that has that one necklace or bracelet. You can tell that she puts in a lot of effort in her jewelry, and takes much pride in what she does. If you haven't done so, go to her blog and see for your self over at Worship @ the House of Blues

    But anyway, I have a couple more weeks left. Things are getting intense. Tomorrow I have a math quiz, Friday is the math test, in Italian I have a quiz this next monday, oral exam on thursday, and the final is on may 12th. My anatomy final is on monday, may 11th, but my math final is also that same day, same time, so I am going to have to ask to take my math final on a later day, (i hope i can!) I AM VERY STRESSED OUT. thinking about the dates alone stresses me out. But i need to FOCUS, get it together, stop with the online shopping while trying to do hmwk. I'm also getting things set and ready for nursing school. i'll FINALLY be going to nursing school this next fall. All i have to do now take my cpr class, and after i'm done with my finals I can finally start working as a nursing assistant since my availability will be better. I've been certified since last september and I haven't even been working as an NAR =P. and in a few weeks after all is done I can start doing more vidss on the days that i have nothing to do.

    so thats my update...

    ta ta for now

    just can't stop myself

    I had no intention of buying anything, but when i went to the coastal scents website to check out the colors they had for their new hot pots, i saw that everything was 15% off up until midnight. Now, I know 15% isn't really that much, but it kinda is when the products on there are already as cheap as 5! So I took advantage of that discount and my sister and I combined our stuff together so that we had a total of $100 so we got free shipping.

    She got the stuff that I told her to get a lOoOOoOng time ago, like the 88 palette, and I don't remember what else she got but all i know was that it was about 70 dollars worth of things because I got about 30 dollars worth of things.

    But I bought a few of the hot pot shadows, a black gel liner, and a couple of the coastal scents smacks (i think that's what they were called? too lazy to go back to the website to double check but whatever)

    I will definitely do a review on all of them.
    I am very curious about the lipglosses and the hot pot shadows.
    I hope they're pigmented because nothing is worse than wasting your money on a product that you end up not liking. That's the one problem i have with drug store brands, you can't try them out!

    Walgreens has buy one get one free on revlon cosmetics, so I went and got me one of those creme lipglosses? Don't like it, way too shear, if i wanted a shear lipgloss I would of just got a clear gloss. It didn't do anything for me, so i thought well maybe I can use it to tone down bright lipsticks.... nope, so shear that it didn't even do that. The color that I got was "Slip into PInk", so I can't say if any of the other colors are as shear but I don't want to waste my money to try it out. But for my free product along with that purchase, I just got a cream eyeshadow quad, in skinlights? what ever the neutral quad one is called... sorry my laziness right now is making me a really sucky explainer/blogger lol but i think most of u will know what i'm talking about so its okay lol ..

    but okay, when my order comes in, I will try out all the stuff and have a review on them and a video perhaps.

    I have to go to work tomorrow (technically today) at 6:30 AM. Not looking forward to it, but looking forward to getting paid, so i can buy more makeup (jk). So i should go do my laundry and get some sleep...

    At this moment, I am also in the middle of uploading a video that I recorded a couple months ago. It was supposed to be for a collaboration that Kelsey better known as Kelzcasttv on youtube. We were gonna do prom looks for our collabo but we are both really really really busy with school so eh. But I thought it would have been a waste if i never post this up so I just cut out the parts where I talked about me and kelsey and so it might be a little choppy?

    but yeah. ANWAY


    Responding to comments

    OKAY so I get awesome comments on my blog posts,
    but one problem....

    I don't know how to personally respond back to each and every one of you.
    am i suppose to comment back in my own blog post or do i go onto your blog and comment back somewhere on one of your random blog posts?

    Let me know what your preference is!

    Sally's Beauty Haul

    Payday Friday, day off from work, boredom, and sunny weather.
    What does that lead to?
    A haul of course!

    So I was really bored today, but at the same time I was too lazy to go to a mall or anywhere far. So today I decided to go to Sally's Beauty Supply. I didn't go there with anything particular in mind, just browsing.

    But they had a buy 2 get 1 free sale on the nail polishes. You can also mix and match the brands.
    So I got 3 china glaze polishes and then right before paying, i saw on their clearance table a Finger Paints polish in the PERFECT hot pink color and the best part, it was ONLY 2.99!

    I also got a pair of ardell mod lashes, the half lashes, and a bundle of hair ties because I lost all EVERY SINGLE hair tie that I had. It will be a couple weeks until I lose all the ones in this bundle as well.

    I also got a discount on all of my purchases except for the Finger Paints polish (because that was already on clearance) because I had a Sally's beauty card. So instead of getting the China Glaze polishes for 5 something, I got them for 4.49, it went up a dollar though, it use to be 3.49 with your discount.

    I highly recommend everyone get the Sally's discount card. It's BASICALLY FREE, because up front it's 5.00 for the card, BUT you get that 5.00 back to use the next month. On your receipt that shows that you purchased the card, it has your 5.00 off next month thingy on there. So yeah, go get it!

    Yep the pictures are backwards because I used photobooth on my mac to take these pics.
    China Glaze Polishes:
    purple: Spontaneous
    turquoise-ish color: For Audrey
    pink: Nake

    Finger Paints Polish: Art Nouveau Glow

    Half Lashes in BLACK 305

    I plan on using those lashes for my birthday. I'm starting to practice different looks that I want to do for my bday. I can't find the picture online but in Ulta's ad, in the stila section, there's a picture of a model with the look i think i want to do. It's a goldish smokey eye for stila's summer collection, bollywood i believe?

    but yeah, have a happy weekend everyone!

    i'm a bum


    Wednesday, March 25, 2009

    so i'm pretty proud of myself

    this all started because i want to try saint germain lipstick from mac, but i don't want to waste money on ANOTHER lipstick even though i love lipsticks. I was a little annoyed that mac changed their back to mac policy to having to have the pans in the pots to be able to b2m, and then i discovered a way i can cheat the system but then i remembered that i tossed out all my empty pots after finding out that u had to have the pans in them. i was also annoyed when i found out that you could b2m the mac wipe pouches,  I THREW THEM ALL AWAY! so anyway! i was looking around to see how many things i had that i could bring back, came to 5 (2 foundation bottles, brush cleanser bottle, an eyeshadow container, and my lash container) i needed just ONE more, and at the same time i saw that i was running real low on a couple of my lipsticks, so i thought to "depot" them. yeah... ideas u come up with when ur desperate. so i thought of depotting them into pill boxes, and i found some REALLY REALLY cute ones from target! i was expecting to buy one of those plain clear ones, but these ones are really cute! and it was only 2.99. i can't find a pic of it, but there was another one there that i thought was really cute and i liked the fact that it was detachable so you can take whatever lip colors you want with you 
    but its 9.99 so yeah... lol but i think i will get it eventually if i have a whole bunch of lipsticks that are running low. 

    so i did this video, after mel (melformakeup) said that i should do a video on it on twitter. so here it is! i'm really proud of myself! lol

    birthday dress

    yeah so my birthday isn't until the end of may, may 25th to be exact. but i'm already thinking of what i want to do and wear and whatever. plus it's the big 2 1 so i'm excited and i want to have lots of fun.

    this is the dress that i want

    with blank ankle booties perhaps?? for a more edgier look.
    and if my hair actually grows longer, wavy curls.
    if my hair isn't longer by then... extensions lol
