5 Days to Go!

Hey everyone!!

I’ve gotten a little busy since starting school, it’s going well so far! I’ve also gotten a little busy preparing for the cruise. 5 more days left!! I’m all packed up and ready to go!

Today I purchased the last few things that I felt I’d need for the trip. (Removal cream, toothbrush, shower spongey thingy, etc. I’m not sure if I should review the cream?) but I anyway, I grabbed a couple of waterproof makeup products among a couple of other things, take a look:

Show n’ Tell 2

First, I want to thank those who voted on my 2nd What to Wear poll!! Here are the results:pollresults

There was a tie between two outfits (I wish there could’ve been a tie breaker, perhaps if I had posted the poll earlier lol)
I ended up taking it upon myself to choose between the two outfits in the end!

And, guess what! I got the job!! So thanks a lot everyone :) I’m really excited about starting.

Now, on to my Show n’ Tell!! I bought a few new things this weekend. :3

I liked the pattern on this dress but when I got home and tried it on I soon learned that it’s rather… shapeless/boxy :/ Maybe it’s just me, I don’t know. It has little pockets though, I thought that was cute.
$8.00

My first low/high maxi skirt :P

Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails nail strengthener. I haven’t used this type of nail polish treatment in awhile. I feel like it works really well, I mean you guys have seen how long my nails can grow. ;D>
So I stand by it!

My grandmother gave me these to cheer me up. (I was the only one out of my siblings running errands, getting things together yesterday for my mom’s bday- AND I got a flat tire doing it… so I was just totally pooped and annoyed by the time I was done >_>.)

Fashion Don’ts

Hello ladies and gents.

I’ve been wanting to make this post for a while.

Some people are just totally clueless when it comes to fashion, and don’t realize what they’re wearing makes them look ridiculous. Of course, if you happen to do any of the fashion don’ts I’m about to list…. Well….*I* believe you should cut it out, but hey, at the end of the day you can wear whatever the fuck you want. You think people don’t give me stares and shit when they see me dressed “different”? I simply don’t care… but yeah, still- just know that if I saw you on the street or somewhere, you’d get a huge sideeye from me.

So, let me help you.

1. Sunglasses at night: Stop doing this! It’s stupid! They’re called SUNglasses for a reason. You just end up looking like a douche-bag. I remember I was going to a nightclub with this girl… She picked me up in her ride and when I got in,  I noticed she had on her sunglasses. I guess she thought she looked coool (SIKE)… Unfortunately she couldn’t even see shit while she was driving. We were even 20 mins late to the club because she read the exits or signs. Needless to say, I haven’t been out with her again (not unless the keys are in my hands)… I’d like to live another 20, 30 years, thanks.

2. Sagging pants: Disgusting. Nobody wants to see your undergarments and nobody wants to see your ass. You look plain ridiculous trying to walk and balance your pants at the same time. Can you even run? If a dude approached me with his pants under his ass I wouldn’t give him the time of day. Also, ladies, nobody wants to see your thong straps… Well, maybe some sleazeball dudes. Have fun with that. Hah, no- Put a damn belt on.

3. Wrong size: Just about anyone can pull off an “over-sized” or “baggy” look… if it’s done right. But not many can pull off wearing clothes that are too small. I hate how messy and bummy someone can look, walking out of the house with some huge top or bottom. What the hell were you thinking? And wearing something too small is even worse. If your clothes shrunk in the wash, give it up, give it away. You do want to be able to breathe, don’t you? So, how about trying on your clothes before buying them..

4. Chipped Nail polish: My mom always said to me, “Put it on, or take it off.” Because it’s not cute. If your nail polish is chipping, take that shit off and re-do it. It’s not edgy, or grungy, or whatever. It’s just tacky.

5. Mixing prints: Many people like this… I do not. Don’t get me wrong, sometimes it works… But I rarely see it done to a point where I’m like, “Oh! I really like that! I need to try it!” For example, wearing a floral skirt with a striped top? What? What the hell are you doing with your life?

6. Dresses/skirts layered over denim/leggings: This is one of the ugliest trends I’ve ever seen. No one can pull this off (unless you’re like 5 years old!) I thought it died and I’d never have to witness it again after I graduated high school… Boy, was I wrong.

7. Panty lines: Skirt or pants that reveal the outline of your panties. Embarrassing! Put on a thong, and don’t give that, “They’re uncomfortable.” bullshit. This is what they’re made for, dammit!

8. Exposed bra: Sometimes this works, if it’s a really cute bra and it helps add flare to the outfit… but that’s rare. Make sure your bra straps and everything is covered.

9. Sock with Sandals: Take those fucking socks off! And that’s all I’m going to say!

10. Formal attire with sneakers: Sneakers aren’t formal. Fail! I remember a lot of fools doing this on prom night. No. Just, no. Some people just try waaaay too hard. Please wear the right shoes with formal attire, this isn’t cute or edgy. Just makes you look immature and goofy.

Nails: Galaxy Nails + Tutorial

Heeey everyone!
Back and with some pretty nail designs!

Also, as you can see I cut my nails short.. 05/02/2013- The date in case anyone is interested in seeing how fast they grow back. :P 2-927FEF34-659347-800

You’ll need:

1. An assortment of nail polishes. The basic ones for this design are: Black, Blue, Purple, White, Yellow, and Pink (but you can get creative and use other colors too). Plus, a clear sparkle polish to top it off.

2. Makeup Sponge, cut into smaller pieces.

3. Tweezers (these are optional)- used to pick up and use the sponge pieces, but you can just as easily use your hand.

4. Nail polish remover + A Q-tip or cotton balls/toothpick combination- clean up around the edges of you nails as needed.

5. Paper (Also optional)- Used to put your nail polish palette onto, but you can just as easily just swipe the brush onto the sponge.

Here are some of the tutorials that helped me get an idea of what to do:

A little peak into my process:

Using black as my base, dark blue or purple is a good substitute:

First polish to go on is white, it’s best to start with the lightest color then work your way to the darkest:1367710813005

Done with polishing, time to clean around the edges:

The final look after clean up and top coat: 913671_533882093345579_641802815_o

The picture really doesn’t do them justice, I think they look even cooler in person.
Anyway, I hope you all enjoyed this.

Please share pictures here if you decide to try this out! I’ll share them on the FB page!
