The Would You Rather Tag!

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

Lately I've been reading a lot of tags and I think there really cool! So I was on Citra's blog Faith Hope Loving and I decided that I wanted to do this tag too. I think it's interesting, because I may learn something about myself that I did not know.

Would you rather lose all of your mascaras, eyeliners, lipsticks, and lipglosses or lose all of your palettes and eyeshadows?
I can do without my palettes and eyeshadows! I am a natural kind of girl anyway. Besides I love my eyeliners, I have almost every color and lipglosses are a must too.

Would you rather chop off all your hair or never be able to cut it again?
Both choices are really hard. I have had my hair cut short before and right now it's taking a while to get back to the way it was. I miss my long and I took it for granted, because I always had put it in a ponytail. But if I never cut it again that might be difficult too. So for now I sadly do not know.

Would you rather have a coral cheek or a pink cheek?
I would say coral cheek, it looks way better. I do not like pink cheek; at least for myself. Going with the pink would be too much.

If you had $1000 to spend, Would you rather buy clothes or makeup?
I would love to say makeup, but I have to go with clothes. I would rather have a naked face than no clothes!

Would you rather apply lipstick as eyeliner, or eyeliner as lipstick?
Lipstick as Eyeliner

Would you rather only shop at MAC or Sephora?

Would you rather only use one eyeshadow color or one lip color for the rest of your life?
One lip color.

Would you rather wear winter clothes in summer or summer clothes in winter?
I guess I would wear summer clothes in the winter. If I had a dress for the summer, I could wear a long sleeve shirt under the dress for winter. I could also wear stockings or leggings with some boots. Same thing if I wore a skirt. Another example, I could wear a cardigan over a tank top. I also wear flats all year long, although I wear my boots sometimes during the winter. As for pants I wear jeans.

Would you rather wear dark nails or bright nails all year round?
I can't really decide, because it depends on my mood! I guess dark nails, because that could mean purples or dark reds.

Would you rather give up your favorite lip product or your favorite eye product?
This is really really hard. I guess favorite lip product.

Would you rather only be able to wear your hair in a pony tail or a messy bun?
A pony tail. A pony tail looks better on me. I've used sock buns to create the hair bun look, but I have never wore my hair in a messy bun.

Would you rather never being able to paint your nails again or never use lipgloss?
Never use lipgloss. I love nail polish! Besides I can always use chapstick; my lips will not be shiny, but they wont be chapped either!

Would you rather shave your eyebrows and have none at all? or sharpie them in everyday?
I would just have to sharpie them in everyday. I could not imagine shaving them off; that is crazy!

Would you rather live without makeup or nail polish?
Makeup! I love nail polish and it would be hard to let them go.

I hope you all enjoyed reading! This tag is so much fun and I tag you all! If you do this tag leave me your link!

Anything Is Possible!

Monday, October 21, 2013
Nothing is impossible. Be who you want to be; not who someone else wants you to be. If you want to be a Movie star, Doctor, Singer/Pop star, Chef , Professional sports star... be it. If you want to be a Teacher, Writer, Comedian, you can. Believe in yourself and others will start believing in you too.
Don't let anybody try and bring you down. Because they are miserable, they want everyone to feel the same way. People will always have something to say; so remember you cannot make everyone happy. So from today on worry about making you happy. Get rid of all the negativity and start to think positive. It is really sad that people get joy out of seeing other people hurt or feeling down. As I got older I realized that the hard way. It's better to have a few great friends, than a bunch of fake ones. Anyone can be nice to you one day and than the next day be rude to you.

Stay positive and if you feel like you are coming in contact with negative people go the other way. Family will always be there for you; whether it's your real family or best friends. If you have people in your life that are there for you during the good and bad they will continue to be.
I hope you enjoyed reading and remember to stay positive!


Beauty things I suck at tag

Sunday, October 20, 2013

I have been tagged by my friend Amber from Always Blabbing to do the Beauty things I suck at tag! You should really checkout her blog and follow if you have not already. I like this tag and there are a lot of things, but I do not want to bore you with all of them. I will only share the "good" ones.

1. Styling my hair: My hair is complicated. Whenever I am styling my hair to go out, my hair most of the time gives me problems. But when I am at home and I style my hair (without trying; if that makes any sense) it comes out almost perfect. When I straighten my hair it looks really nice. But as soon as I step in the hot weather, the humidity hits my hair and it gets frizzy.

2. Shaping my eyebrows: Making that perfect arch... Forget about it. I do not even have a routine; it's like this, triming them is the easy part. When trying to shape them I get really nervous. I mean who wants to go out the house with their brows two different shapes.

3. Winged eyeliner: The only wing I can make is with a pencil on paper! Seriously this is one of the hardest things to do. First off you are working with your eyelid; which is hard enough to do, because you're not putting it on your whole lid, just a small portion. Then you have to keep your hand steady so you won't mess up. As for making the wing part, it has to look right or I will look crazy.

4. Putting nail polish on my right hand: I am sure every girl has this problem. Whenever I polish my left it always comes out right. Then when it is time to put polish on my right hand, it's almost a nightmare. My left hand starts shaking because I am so nervous. The polish gets on my hand, and I have to start over sometime.

I tag anyone who does this tag! If you do decide to do this tag let me know in the comments!

My Blogiversay!

I cannot believe my blog is one (yesterday). Like I have said in the past, in a million years I would not have thought part of my life would be about blogging. I love all things beauty, but my blog is more than that. I write about life in general. I have made friends through blogging and I hope to continue to make more. I know I have not been blogging as much as I should this year, but I promise I will start. I have a long way to go with blogging, but if I can blog for a year I can definitely blog for more years.

I want to thank everyone who takes the time to read and checkout my blog! All of you encourage me to become a better blogger, not just for you all but for myself. I will admit that I do not finish everything I start, but I will for blogging.

Things I want to do with my blog:
Blog more!
Change my blog design!
Try to blog for 1 month everyday!
I want my blog to inspire at least one person; more than one would be awesome!

I know these things are not much, but it's a start!

Olive Oil Moisturizing Shine Serum

Wednesday, October 2, 2013

My hair is going through a phase and it's not good. Specifically a dry one which is very terrible. I am sure you all know what happens to dry hair; it's more vulnerable to breakage. Some girls produce a lot of oils in their hair so they wash their hair everyday. Me, no I wash my hair every 4 to 5 days a week. But at the same time my hair does not produce oils regularly. Because of this I need to keep my hair moisturized.

So trying to find moisturizing products are a little hard. Mainly because a lot of moisurizers are very stinky and greasy and that's really gross. This Olive Oil Moisturizing Shine Serum works really good with keeping your hair hydrated and well nourished! I am not the only one who uses this moisturizer in my house.

This moisturizer:

-Repairs dry, damaged hair.
-Moisturizes, nourishes, hydrates, and shines.
-Is Olive and Vitamin E enriched.
-Is Alcohol Free
-This works on any hair type.
-Dry and frizzy hair that is chemically damaged will be moisturized and hydrated.
-Makes hair shiny.

I love this product it works really well. Like I said before, I'm not the only one who uses it in my household!
