Flower Beauty Foundation

0081047401406_300X300I’ve been wanting this foundation for a while because it’s by Drew Barrymore and I really like her, but I’ve just never gotten around to finally buying the foundation.. Today, my fiance, decided he wanted to buy GTA and I decided since he was going to buy the game, that I would get something as well.. So as I am walking through the isles, I see that the Flower makeup is on sale and this $14 foundation is not $7.. After flipping out about it being half price, I got it and raced home with it and can’t stop looking at this pretty bottle lol
I’ll be trying it out tomorrow and I hope it’s as amazing as it looks.
I’ve heard some really good things about it, so I’m looking forward to it!

:D!

The Eyebrow Dilemma

I AM SERIOUSLY SO SICK OF THE EYEBROW ISSUE!
We have bendgate, hairgate, dogegate, and all these other mock watergate wannabe scandals, but no one is talking about the real issues here. WHY ISN’T ANYONE ADDRESSING BROWGATE!??
Seriously!?

Do you have a minute to talk about our lord and savior, the eyebrow?

It is the single most important thing on your face.. ON YOUR FACE, GUYS!

and you do this!!?

HOW DARE YOU!

A proper eyebrow will compliment your face and make you look like the fierce bitch you know you are.
Now, I know it CAN be complicated. I did have my own eyebrow mishaps – all types of mishaps! I even shaved off my eyebrows once -_- but I tried, damnit! Everyday I tried until I learned how to do it right.
Figure out what your natural shape is and work with it!

No one is perfect, but there’s no way you need to be lookin like this

WHY DO YOUR EYEBROWS NEED TO LOOK LIKE A BENCH? WHY?

I see so many people on a DAILY basis that I wish I could attack with an eyebrow pencil and show them the heresy they’re committing.

Shenanigans

This month’s Ipsy bag was not really something I was amused by. Not because there was anything wrong with it, but because they’re just thing that don’t appeal to me, so I’ll be cancelling that service, unfortunately.

Aside from that, I’ve been keeping myself entertained by doing a lot of schoolwork and focusing on myself. Education is something that so important to me and I am so happy to be able to do this again, it’s amazing. This is something I’ve wanted for a while but wasn’t able to have before until now, so I’m way excited. All that schoolwork has left me no room for anything else, which sucks, because I really want to blog more and not disappear. I

Also, I got this really peachy nail polish by Wet N Wild, and I really love it, and I know it’s supposed to be Fall and everything and you’re supposed to switch to the cooler colors, but  let’s be real. I live in Florida. It’s summer year-round. So I thought so harm in getting a really nice warm color and proudly parading the streets of Orlando with it :D

Also in my arsenal, I have the L’Oreal True match Lumi foundation, which I had heard really great things about, but JUST got around to trying, and I was FLOORED… I don’t know if it’s just me, but it reminded me a lot of its more expensive cousin, the Lancome Teint Idole foundation. So, for like, a fraction of the price, I was pretty much able to get the same level of flawlessness, which I was truly excited about. It has def become one of my favorites, I can’t seem to put it down!!
Aside from L’Oreal, I have also acquired Maybelline’s Fit Me foundation ass well. It was surprisingly runny, and I made a mess everywhere when I first used it, but it was highly recommended to me by a girl I randomly stopped and interrogated at Walmart because I just really loved her makeup. She talked it up so much, I decided I’d get it. Though it is a nice foundation, and has a nice matte finish, I wasn’t all that thrilled with it, as I felt it left sort of dry patches on my skin. I’m not sure if it’s just my skin or the way I applied it, but I wasn’t too ok with it. Maybe I’ll give it another go after I’m done fangirling over L’Oreal lol

 

 

My cat, Loki, has gotten very comfortable around the house, often taking over areas altogether. He likes to follow me and meow at me and I feel like he’s yelling at me about something I know nothing about.. Also, he loves my laptop. I think it’s a cat thing. They’re always trying to sit on them. Loki’s very much the attention whore, and he’s way too cute to be denied attention <3
While, he spends most of the day with me being babied, when David comes home, he flips out and starts running after David and trying to attack his legs LOL Since David is the one that mostly plays with him, I’m pretty certain he gets all psyched out when he walks in the door lol.
Overall, he’s spoiled as shit.

Clearly I’m becoming a crazy cat lady :O

“low-Hanging pants now a crime in Ocala”

Read Ocala.com ‘s article HERE!

 

Today I saw that my hometown of Ocala, FL had passed a law on “sagged” pants that includes a $500 fine and an up to 6 month jail sentence for what is now a “second degree Misdemeanor offense.” At first I was like “yay” and then I thought about it.. and because very torn.
On one hand, I hate seeing people walking around with pants literally down to their knees. But on the other hand, it’s really no one’s business what someone else decides to wear or how to wear it.
There have been laws like this all over Florida, but a good part of them have been repealed and seen as “unconstitutional” which I can agree with. But there’s so many other cities out there not just in Florida that have implemented this ruling and has worked great.
Cities in New York, New Jersey, California, and Florida have banned the use of saggy or “hanging” pants, calling it a “vulgar display” and “disrespectful.” and have aimed at keeping these law in place in the “interest of common decency.”
Now, I completely agree.. it looks distateful, it looks trashy and dirty and all that.. but is it really enough to have the Government interfere with our closets? Should we be dictated on what to wear and how to wear it?

I agree that everyone should dress like they have some sense.
what I do not agree with is being told what to do or wear and how to do it or wear it. That will never be ok, thus my being torn.

This ban has gone on to be called “racial profiling” claiming that the law is only aimed at black Americans.. This, to me, is something I find ridiculous because I KNOW for a fact that black Americans aren’t the only ones who sag their pants, and the law is very clear about “anyone” who breaks it. It says nothing about affecting black people in particular. there will always be people who make issues a racial thing, so I guess I’m not surprised there.

I’ll end this with a quote from an article on sfgate.com
“Saggy pants is a look borrowed from prison inmates who aren’t allowed to wear belts. But when society starts taking its fashion cues from the nation’s prison population, it doesn’t speak well of our culture”

 

This may be a subject in which I would really love to hear different inputs from people, so if you feel a certain way about this law, please do let me know! :D

 

Facebook

Facebook is where we spend most of our time these days. It’s a great way to keep up with friends, family, and everything else for that matter. So it is no surprise that most, if not all of us have Facebook!

So with this said, I’d like to bring up my Facebook and ask everyone who reads this to please check out my page and if you like it, please like it!
