Pamper Yourself Giveaway

Pamper Yourself Giveaway

My LLLLOOOOOOONNNNGGGGGGGGGGGG waited giveaway is finally here.  I am so sorry for such a long long long MIA.  I have been so busy with life that I almost thought about just quitting blogging but I thought about all the friendship and things I learned from blogging that I just couldn't do it.  Instead I'm back with a long-waited giveaway for all my loyal subscribers who has waited and stayed with me throughout my whole beginning of blogging.  I remember when I first started blogging and I would whine to my sister about how no one comes to my blog and how no one is following me at all.  Now I realize it takes time to get where you want to be and that is with everything that you do.  Patience is always key and I'm so glad all of my followers still follow me even when I have been gone for so many months.  So glad to be back and I hope to be blogging more often but if I don't, dont give up on me yet.  This year will hopefully be my last year in school so I hope to be blogging more often once I AM DONE!!!

New Makeup Storage

So HAPPY to have a new storage for makeup.


It fits exactly all of my makeup products leaving one drawer left for my misc. items.  I'm so glad I spent a little more for something that fits everything I needed it to but still with some space for future items.



I got it at TJ Max for 40 bucks.  Awesome deal!

Dare to Wear Charity Challenge for Japan

Alicia from FunnyFace Beauty is having a Dare to Wear Charity Challenge for Japan. 

Brief information about this challenge:  You create a Japan inspired look and let her know.  Alicia and her family will donate $10 for each Dare to Wear photo.


For more information about this, click here. :)

If you have time, it would be awesome if you did this challenge too.  It's very fun and its for a good cause

Thank You ALICIA!  You are so kind and generous.  I am happy to know there are people like you in this world.  Your kindness is much appreciated.

I didn't have a lot of time but I knew I wanted to get a photo in before I was too late.  It's not as good as many that I have seen but I tried. LOL. :P 

I was inspired by this little anime photo.  (Even though I was not even close to looking like her. HAHA!)

And here is my finished look.


Alicia, I know this isn't the best but I hope it still counts. I will be looking forward to hearing about your next challenge and seeing all the creative looks from other bloggers.

My New DO


I recently dyed my hair.  I wanted a blonde look but I should have known with my black hair this dye would not make my hair blonde.  Maybe if I took it to the salon, I would have gotten the color I wanted.  But I still do like the color on me because it's not too extreme.  The brown color is only seen in the sunlight. 


This is the color I wanted. lol.  I dyed it once and didn't see much difference so last week I dyed it again.  It is much lighter now than it was the first time I dyed it.



A couple of months ago Clairol was promoting this new foam hair dye.  It was such an easy way to get free coupons to try this new product out.  I found out through Facebook by "liking" all these beauty products.  I would encourage you to do so as well if you have a Facebook account because sometimes these beauty companies give free products away to their followers.


You get a coupon sent to you in the mail.  You can take the coupon to any store that sells these Clairol foam hair dye products and get the whole package for FREE!
I actually liked this product a lot.  It's not as messy as the liquid one and I feel like I can dye my hair with the foam hair dye a lot more quicker and on my own.  It's an easy process and it doesn't drip all over.

I'll keep my hair this color for a while and once I get bored maybe I'll dye it again so it gets a little more lighter again.

I ♥ discounts!

Everyone loves to buy things cheaper than the retail price right?

This weekend (March 11-March 13) Coach Outlet Store is having a 30% off discount on all the purses.
A VERY AWESOME DEAL!
My mom, sister, and I each got our very first Coach purse yesterday. :D

Isn't it beautiful.
The price isn't that beautiful though. :S  Luckily, I paid way less than that.


So, if you have a Coach Outlet Store nearby, you should definately check this awesomly cool deal out.


We also stopped by a cosmetic outlet store that sells name brand makeup at a cheaper price. 
I got this new eye and cheek palette for a very good deal.  Retail price was $52 and I got it for $27.75.  I've never heard of Prescriptives before but the colors are beautiful and very pigmented.  I couldn't let it go.


It's actually a really nice pouch/purse that zips up.  That's very helpful especially when I travel because then if I were to ever drop it, it won't break and shadder to peices.  I'm going to carry this palette everywhere I go.  


NEW TOPIC: I'm almost to 100 followers and I thank each and every one of you guys.  I know I haven't been blogging for a while now and I'm so sorry.  School is so hard this semester and last week I just finished taking 3 exams, presenting a project, and going to my state capital for Nurse's day.  I will try my best to keep updating but if you don't see or hear from me please be patient. I will definately be rewarding my blog followers for sticking with me and my boring blog very soon (Summer time when my stress-free from school).  I appreciate all your wonderful comments and still do read them. 

Please don't give up on me just yet. LOL!

Girl Power

If a man can, a woman can too.
There are so many male superheroes out there.  At the top of my head I can name so many of them. Superman, Batman, Spiderman, Iron Man, Hulk, Flash, Green Lanturn.  Even so many movies come out with these superheroes as the greatest hero of them all.
Now on the other hand the only female superheroes I can think of is Wonder Woman and Cat Woman. 
I always believe that a woman has the power, authority, and will to be just as good (probably even better..hehe) than a man. 
Am I right ladies???

So a couple of years ago, I was Wonder Woman for Halloween. (WAY OLD!  In 2005)

Representing GIRL POWER! (lol)

I look like such a DORK! LOL!  Back then I thought I looked BOMB-DIGITY! haha!

So when MAC came out with the Wonder Woman Collection, I had to get some.

Even my sister says when she see anything that is Wonder Woman, she thinks about me. HEHE!







LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! THE COLORS!  But I have not used them yet.  I might just keep it as a collection.



Before I leave though, just wanted to ask....
What is up with the artist who drew these female Superheroes???

Seriously?!  Isn't this a bit distorted and disgusting! :S

The BIG 23

Happy Be-lated Birthday to Me!
(A long overdue post)
My birthday was the day after Valentines and I have been so busy so I havn't gotten to post this.

My husband is such a dork.  His plan was to make me really mad on Valentine's day by acting like he didn't remember about Valentine's day.  After picking me up at school, he went straight to playing his PS3 (which he knows I get irritated when he plays too much).  At the end of the night, (I knew in the back of my mind that he had to have gotten me something but just wanted a good surprise) so I lied to him that I was going to meet up with my friends later for my early birthday.  He got all bummy and started telling me I was ditching out on him on Valentine's day.  When I was almost finished getting ready, he came into the bedroom with a NEW LAPTOP!  Something I really needed and wanted.
BUT...
I ended up telling him to return the laptop.  Although I am in need of a new laptop, I am MORE in need of a new car.  I had a good heart to heart talk with him about how more important it is to have a better, reliable car.  
SO...
We are now saving up for a NEW CAR!!! 
I am so excited! :D

So on my birthday I didn't have class and my husband didn't work so it was a day of just spending time with each other.  We went to the mall and he let me buy whatever I wanted.  So this is what I got for my birthday from my wonderful husband.


The left is my birthday gift from Sephora.  The middle is using my 100 sephora points on a Hello Kitty perfume.  The right is another gift I got.
 
Also received gifts from my sisters, aunt, friends, and families but taking photos of everything will just be a big hassle.  My sisters and friend surprised me to a dinner at Olive Garden the day after my birthday and I WAS SHOCKED!  Never thought they would do something that special for me.  It's not the quantity but the quality that counts.
 
Onto a different story now:  (Sorry for such a long post.  If your still reading to this point, I give you props because I tend to go on and on when I blog lol)  A couple of weeks ago, my camera accidently fell into a bucket of water.  It stopped working, thus I stopped blogging for a while due to not being able to take pictures.  I was devastated because I love blogging.  HEHE!
On Valentine's Day, I told my husband all I want as a gift is for him to be able to fix my camera because it was expensive and should not go to waste.  He moved the lens around and tapped it a little and then it worked! What a miracle.
My mom came over on my birthday and hung out with me and I had told her not to get me anything because she's just so kind and generous she goes way overboard.  She surprised me with a NEW CAMERA! (I'm such a spoiled little girl. LOL!)  I told her to return the camera as well because mine already worked.  I gave her a good lecture about saving her money, don't be too nice, and how I am just happy all the people in my life is happy and healthy.  I know it sounds corny but it's true.  All the things I want, I already received freely and that is FAMILY. :)
 
So I saved a good 900 bucks and in return received LOVE.
 
 



I'm not ready to be one year older but I'm ready to be a better person and a good role model.  Oh Yeah! And it's only a number. :P

DON'T BE A DRAG, JUST BE A QUEEN

Lady Gaga is BACK!
(And I'm so excited for her music and cosmetics)
I think Lady Gaga is an amazing person.  Although she may be weird and different to people, I LOVE that she is who she is.  She doesn't try to assimilate into the Hollywood look.  She stays true to herself.  What she says on an interview with Ellen is what inspires me to be who I am.

She also has a beautiful voice that doesn't need a machine to fix it so that it sounds great.  AMAZING person. :)

Lady Gaga's Viva Glam 2 came out today at Macys which is more of a light warm beige color.  My sister and I stopped by Macys yesterday because we wanted to check out the Wonder Woman collection.  After we checked out, the sales lady gave us a sneak peak of the Viva Glam 2.  We fell in LOVE! LOL!  It was such a beautful color that we wanted it so bad. 
Before going to my clinical, I headed to Macys again today (these ladies that work at Macys probably think my sister and I are makeup addict).  My intention was to only buy the lipstick.  The sales lady let me try the lipstick and lipgloss and I could not resist so I bought both of them.  I have the first Viva Glam but the pink color was too bright on me and didn't match my skin tone.  Now this Viva Glam 2 is more of a color that I could wear.  The color is so beautiful that I could wear it for an everyday look. 

I think the lipgloss on top of the lipstick gave more of a finished look.  This is the reason why I decided to buy both of them.


The top swatch is the lipgloss and the bottom swatch is the lipstick.

Lipstick Alone




Lipgloss On Top Of Lipstick





This post was made especially for Sylvia so she can decide if she likes the color enough to buy it.  Hope this helped you. :D

My first award came from Aseya at Pretty in the Desert, Aseya was my first blogger friend.  She's such a nice and friendly person and I'm happy to have met her.  If you haven't checked out her blog, you should (her post are always very interesting to read).

3. Award 15 recently discovered new bloggers.

Seven Things About Me

  1. I love babies and children (the reason why I want to be a Pediatric Nurse when I graduate).  Here's a clip of my husband's neice Isabella reading to me.  She's a cutie.  She calls me "daunty" because she can't say aunty. 
  2. video
2.  Having TWO older sisters is the BEST!  They are my best friend and sister.  I can always go to them for anything.  I don't know how I would have been like without them.  We look nothing alike.


3.  My husband and I plan to have children in the future.  We will wait until I graduate from college before we have any.  I want to have four children but since we wont be having one anytime soon, our fishies are our babies.

4.  I do not eat peanuts because when I was probably about 4 or 5 years old my uncle told me if I eat peanuts I will get fat.  OMG! I am so dumb. LOL!  To this day I don't eat peanuts, NOT because I think I will get fat but because over the years I am not use to the taste anymore.  (To this day my whole family still makes fun of me about not eating peanuts.)


5.  Sometimes I have brain farts or "blonde" moments.  Okay I may have these more than some people but hey I'm proud of it. LOL!  I GOT IT FROM MY MOMMA!  When I was young I said I liked JC Penny because everything was only a penny. LOL!!! OMG!  I am so stupid.  (Sorry I thought since Dollar Tree everything is a dollar, it would be the same for JC Penny. LOL)


6.  I love watching youtube clips.  Anything from makeup gurus to comical people like WongFu Production, KevJumba, and NigaHiga. I also LOVE Victor Kim.  LOL!  He's just so talented.  He can sing, dance, paint, play the drums, piano, guitar, oh and he's so sweet to his girlfriend--leaving her messages of him singing or making youtube tribute clips to her--it's so sweet.  I have a major crush on him that my husband gets jealous (hehe).


7.  I've always had a passion of caring for those who needed help.  Whether it be animal or people, I always feel like I need to help them.  This is probably why I want to be a nurse or in the healthcare field.



I am awarding this to:

-Grace from Arcanus Grace
-Orla from 'Orla xx
-Dinorah from DinorahBaby ♥
-Mai from D R E ★ M E R
-Steph from susho
-Karen from Karen M
-Daniela from A Play on Words
-Jessica from ESPERANDO EL AMOR. 

Thanks Again Everyone!
