elf cosmetics fail.

The cover stick leaves my face looking ashy, as well as the face powder and the liquid concealer.

 The water proof liquid eyeliner does the job and so does the blending brush...idk about the eye lashes or the primer

I chose very random colors for the lipstick, the matte lipsticks (the two in the black box) were not my color whatsoever! and for the others one of them made me look like Bonquisha, idk light peach dont look good on me lol . -__-

honestly I must say, I got what I paid for. I see why its only a dollar, lol.

appreciating the little things...

Its been 3 weeks living in Virginia and I'm really enjoying it. It's not a big difference from where I lived before but   it's cool and my hair is loving the humidity! I'm almost settled in. I got a job and I'll be starting school next month, winning! 

I'm so thankful to have family who cares enough to take me into their home. I've came from  a not so good situation. Every month my mom and I were walking on egg shells, we had no idea if we would be homeless, and sharing a bedroom with the moms was not a good time, the fridge was empty (until foodstamps whoo!) and I was selling my clothes for gas money. It was definatly a stressful time, but we got through it.

 Now I have my own bedroom and bathroom, downstairs in the refurbished basement. Lord knows I am grateful. It's crazy how you can take the simplest things for granted until they're stripped from you. I take so much pride in my stuff nowadays, also with me having to buy all my stuff unlike back when I was a teenager. I feel so comfortable and peaceful, I can sleep at night. This is what I call home.

The girl you just called fat? She is overdosing on diet pills. The girl you just called ugly?...She spends hours putting makeup on hoping people will like her. The boy you just tripped? He is abused enough at home. See that man with the ugly scars? He fought for our country. That guy you just made fun of for crying? His mother is dying. Put this on your status/blog if you are against bullying.

the best shampoo to ever touch my hair.

It was on sale at Walmart for only $3 , so I got the shampoo and conditioner. Best shampoo/conditioner I have so far. The shampoo is a great clarify-er, and has acai berry & avocado extract. They say it's sulfate free but on the back it says Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate I know sodium lauryl is drying, I have no idea. But on the other hand there is Cocamidopropyl Betaine which is good, I've read. The conditioner is good too. All I can say is that I've been using it for two weeks and I'm pretty satisfied. the mall


So I watched this movie the other day. All I can say is wow. I don't want to spoil the movie but the climax of the movie was when 9/11 occurred . I remember being in 4th grade, getting ready for school one morning,  first time I ever paid attention to the morning news. I had no idea Muslims had to go through so much from ignorant people who blamed, battered, and teased them for obviously a crime they did not do. How can people be so unaware of the facts and still want to create hostility towards innocent people. I don't understand it but the movie is great and I really want to study the religion. They believe in the same God but I wonder what differentiates this religion from the others as well as the culture.
