What I've learned in {{2011}}

This year has been so-so for me it wasn't too bad and it wasn't too good, it was very neutral of course I had my series of heartbreaks, emotional tolls, good friends, losing friends etc. but I will say this I am pretty blessed to be alive and and I'm greatful & I thank God that I've made it another year and as this chapter ends another one begins.

I've had my up's and downs like anyone in the world, but what makes us stronger is our faith and keeping our head up in that moment where you know you've hit rock bottom and eventually you get out of rock bottom and your okay again. This year I've lost people that I'm close to (not passing just certain events occurred where we both decided to go our separate ways) I'm currently estranged from my father, my brother is in jail for an accident that he had no control of (fyi he isn't my brother but i saw him grow up with my real brother) I've been decived by guys, you know go out for a date and two and then falls off the face of the planet and I couldn't go back to school.

However when I think of all the awful things I had to endure this year I think to myself..."what doesn't kill me only makes me stronger" and I'm still alive! if i wasn't i wouldn't be blogging now would i? haha jk jk but seriously when I think of all that I think on the brighter side of my brain, if my "friend" and father don't want to talk to me and cut me out of their life...fine it's their loss I know I'm a great friend and I know I'm a great daughter and the reason I know I am is because I love my family if they need something or need me I'm always there no matter what time of day or night. My brother is in jail for 6 months but I know he's coming out soon and when he does I know he'll be with us forever. guys are guys I know not all of them are the same but like i mention before it's their loss not mine and is always going to be there it's not going away...unless buildings grow legs and walk away! {{yikes!!}}

so what I'm trying to say is we all have our hurts our loves, our fails and our successes. what doesn't kill us only makes us stronger remember that you are all brilliant and if your going threw a though time right now just remember that it could be far worse. life is beautiful we should embrace it.

DIY: Homemade Lip Exfoliator

Good Morning everyone! sorry for not writing the past day or so I just got caught up with last minute shopping and wrapping presents and what not so today I want to share a Homemade Lip Exfoliator with you all,  It's pretty common that people get dried lips in the winter and a lot of people pay like $15-$20 for a small little tube to exfoliate your lips, times are though and sometimes that $15-$20 can be used for gas, food etc.  In the spirit of Christmas I thought I'd share this beauty tip with you...

Materials used:
-Brown Sugar
-Olive Oil

Once mixed establish the exfoliator onto your lips and massage them with your finger for a couple of minutes, after that get a wet cloth and remove the exfoliator gently. 

How often should I Exfoliate my lips?

You should Exfoliate your lips at least once a week, some people do it twice a week or when they feel their lips are dry.

I feel a tsunami of colors! o_0

When fall/winter come in our lifes that's when the dark colors come out ex: purples, gold, black, grey etc. the past couple of years for Christmas and New Years I always pick two different colors to either combine or to wear on the different holidays, for example last year the colors I wore were black and silver something really safe I didn't really feel like going outside the box hahaha but this year I'm feeling rather colorfull ^_^ so I think I'm going to end up wearing these 4 colors

  • Black
  • Gold
  • Purple
  • dark Yellow
I have a general Idea what I'm going to wear on those two days but I haven't really taken picutres of the outfits,make up and all that good stuff.....I guess in a way it's a little cliffhanger ^_^ HOWEVER! I am going to wear one of the fabulous necklace's that I made I loved the outcome of it I decided to make another one for me and sell the original on my etsy store:

20" Purple & silver necklace $25 (

I mustache you a question......

But I'm afraid I'll shave it for later ;)

hahaha ^_^ yes I know it's a very cheesy pun :P but you got to admit it's kinda funny in a dorky kind of way :P Lately I've noticed that Mustaches are very very in this year to be honest I have no Idea how they sprung out for fashion but everywhere you go there is an item with a mustache on it for example:

Domo with Mustache

Car-stache (

 Mustache nail art
 Mustache party favors

and so on and so forth, so because they are so popular I found a mustache pendent and decided to make a necklace out of it and here is my outcome, very fast and very simple:
Silver-plated 20" Mustache necklace $10 ( )

What a Lovely Jade

When I look at a Jade stone I think to myself It's such a beautiful stone! and to have it a part of your accessory's is a total must! I believe girl should have at least one piece of jade jewelry, however Jade can be somewhat expensive but that's why they have the faux jade stones ^_^ 
Did you know that the Jade stone is commonly used in India, China and Korea for their weddings, burials, statues etc.

My outcome:
20" Jade stone with gold necklace $25

Homemade Nail Polish: Across the Milky Way

for a while now I have been thinking of making my own nail polish and just didn't know how until I googled it ^_^ (i love google!) and found out that you can make homemade nail polishes with unwanted or old eye shadows! so I went to walgreens and purchased a clear nail polish from NYC and found an old pallette of shimmery eye shadows and went to work! 

-Clear nail Polish
-Eye shadow(pigment,matte,shimmery etc)
-Funnel (I used an old cupcake decorator funnel)
-baggy (i used a flat head stick)
