Would You Rather...

I thought I would do a beauty tag because they are fun and I'd like to know what others would do in a situation. So, if you are reading this, I tag YOU to do this also, and then let me know. 

Would you rather...

1. Walk around all day with your skirt tucked into your underwear or be seen wearing a really see through dress?

When I was a young girl, I was cheering at a football game. I excused myself from the sidelines and went to the little girl's room. When I walked out and started walking by the bleachers, I could hear snickering and giggles. If it wasn't for my friend's mother who ran up behind me and yanked my skirt down that was tucked into my bloomers, I don't think anyone else would have told me. So embarrassing. With that said, I would rather be seen wearing something really see through because at least that sounds like something done on purpose, LOL!

2. Go to a party and not realize until the end of the night that you have lipstick on your teeth or that your fake lashes are coming unglued?

Sadly, I have experienced my false lashes becoming unglued by the end of the night. Thankfully, it was dark and I hope no one really saw. The situation would have been different if I was at a lit party though. So, I would rather have lipstick on my teeth than my lash becoming unglued. At least lipstick on teeth can be hidden from time to time because it's not like I am going to be showing my teeth all the time.

3. Forget to put mascara on one eye or forget blush on one side of your face?

This is easy for me...I would rather forget to put mascara on one eye. I don't have really noticeable lashes so I could probably get away with that. Blush is totally more noticeable and would be horrifying.

4. Wear lipstick/ lip liner combo or frosty blue eye shadow?

I don't see a big deal about either, but I know for certain I would not be able to pull of the frosty blue shadow. So, I would rather do the lipstick/ liner combo. (Although I think they are talking about the dark lip liner with the pale lip stick but it wasn't specified.)

5. Wear foundation that is two shades too light or go way overboard on bronzer?

OMGosh! This is a hard one to decide. Eeeek, I suppose wear a foundation that is 2 shades to light. I would rather look like a ghost than an oopma loompa, ya know? hehe

6. Drink an entire bottle of ketchup or run into the guy, who broke your heart, on a bad hair day when your skin is freaking out?

No guy is worth killing myself by drinking a whole bottle of ketchup. So, I would rather just bump into him when I look like a mess. He broke my heart so what do I care what I look like when I see him? I'm not one of those girls who have to show an ex what he is missing. It's his fault for missing out.

7. Be able to date any celebrity you wanted or wake up with perfect red carpet worthy hair?

What a dumb question, LOL! I would rather wake up with perfect hair. Celebrities come with too much baggage and it's not my kind of lifestyle. I like to be low key, no in the eye of the public.

8. Your arm pits smell musky or like delicious lasagna?

And I thought the last question was dumb....for heaven sakes this one is by far the dumbest. I would rather smell musky. Yes, musky! Why? Because smelling like lasagna 24/7 365 days a year would be nauseating.

9. Give up your make up or cellphone for a year?

I would give up make up. Make up can't give me the satisfaction of hearing a loved ones voice.

10. Run into a guy you like with your mouth full of food or no make up at all?

Easy, no make up at all. If I want a guy to like me, he is gonna have to like me with no make up at all. I love make up, but I don't wear it every day. Plus, if a guy is not gonna like me with no make up, then he is more shallow than I and not worth my time.

My Next Step

Well, apparently I can't keep up two blogs. The one I wanted to work with the most, I seem to have neglected the most. So, it has come down to getting rid of it and just posting everything and anything on my main blog. Why? Because it's easier for me and it seems I don't have a lot to talk about when it comes to games. I thought there would be, but there is not. I tend to play the games and never get around to saying anything about it cause I am too wrapped up in it. I fail, I know. Hopefully now, since I am condensing, I will have more to say on that topic. Anywho.....that's all.

My Grammy Hit or Miss Fashion List

Now that the Grammy buzzy has died down a bit, I thought I would chime in with my thoughts about some of the fashion that hit the red carpet. It's not going to be everybody, just a few I picked out. This is all my opinion and I am in no way a professional Fashionista.

Every year, she tries to out do herself making some kind of statement of some sorts. I will never understand her nor her style. I am certainly not a fan of hers. Sorry to all the Gaga fans, but I am not. I am sure she is a great performer, but she is not my cup of tea.
Anyway, the above photo is her in a egg unborn. She later emerges out from the egg on stage, wearing the yellow sheer plastic looking outfit below, during her performance of her new song "Born This Way."
At first when I saw photos of her, I didn't notice the pointy implants on her shoulder. I just passed them off as shoulder pads to later discover she isn't wearing a shirt that could contain them. Yes, I am very observant, LOL! Those implants freak me out. She even has some on her forehead as horns, but you can't tell in these photos. I think her make up/ costume artist did a fab job matching and blending in her implants and making them stay throughout the night. As for her make up itself....nothing special, just black lipstick and black winged eye make up.

Seriously, Cyndi...WTF is this? I loved you and your quirky style back in the 80's but that was then. Now, it's just wrong and looks tacky. For one, you don't have the body to pull this off and two, how old are you now? To top off this outfit, you failed to add any make up for color and your face looks washed out. Oh, and that "just rolled out of bed" hair look is hideous. I hope you fire your entourage that actually told you, you look good.

Ciara- Many network fashionista's claimed Ciara's dress to be stylish and sexy. I am sorry to say I disagree. To me it looks like a glitzy glam super hero outfit. Seriously....can you not see it? LOL!

I think Jennifer Hudson looks wonderful. Her dress fits her well and shows off her lovely body. You can tell she worked hard to get where she is now. I envy her. The only problem I have with the dress is, her girls need a little more breathing room. They are popping out trying to get some air.

Kelly Osbourne has come a long, long way from her punk days. You can tell she feels so much better about herself these days. She looks fabulous.

Grandma's sheer curtains....check. A beaded brazier....check. Wings....check. Now where did I put my GD halo?
I love Katy Perry, but WTF is this? This is not a well thought out outfit...not like many of them are, but still. It's like she was in a rush, grabbed the curtain, wrapped it around her waist, stop by a costume store on the way to the Grammys to justify the bottom half, and hopped on the red carpet.

Glee cast member, Diana Agron is rockin' this black dress with the rocker chic make up and hair. I really like the make up and hair. It's done well and looks great on her. I could care less about the dress, but she looks great in it; so, can't complain.

Glee cast member, Lea Michele, took the sultry route with her Grammy outfit. Even though she looks gorgeous in it, I don't like anything about it. Well, maybe the pop of color she gave her lips, but that's about it. I am thinking maybe if she wore her hair up it would look better? IDK, what do you think? I just think there is too much going on around the neck line and with the hair up it would open up the dress up top and show it off a bit more.

I love the dress, just not on Margret Cho. Actually, I think everything is wrong with her outfit- her hair, her make up her dress. The woman needs color. What she has on ages her about ten years. Asian women are known for their youthful appearance. Use it and abuse it while you still can. I think a bright color would have played better with her pale skin and that dark lip stick needs to go. Again, bright colors would have been much better for her.

Has there ever been an instance when Snookie looked good? She looks like a metallic, hot mess. Her hair never really changes, her make up is decent, but the dress so does not fit her body. This girl has money now, I am sure of it. Freakin' use it or give it to someone who will. You need a fashion stylist not from Jersey.

Frankenstein's bride meets cheetah of the jungle. I don't know a thing about Nicki Minaj, but someone needs to tell her she over did it on the cheetah animal print.And about the is this suppose to go with the animal print? The only good thing about this outfit is the make up. I love the blue glitter liner used for the lower lash line. It gives a nice pop to the eyes.

Oh Ricky, Ricky, Ricky. Such a nice looking guy that normally dresses very well. What made you think platinum skinny jeans would go well with a tuxedo blazer, white oxford and black tie?

Selena Gomez- Love the hair, love the make up, love the dress. With that said, she needs a little pep in her step. She's young, she should dress the age and save this look for a few years down the line.

Miley Cyrus- Love the beach wave hair, love the make up, hate the dress. The two tone metallic dress just hangs off of her and does nothing for her shape. Thank goodness she is using her hair as an accessory too. Her boob is about to pop out of the side of the dress.

Rhianna- It looks like someone grabbed a garland of tulle, spun her in circles, and called it a dress. Plus, this dress really leaves nothing to the imagination. How do you wear any type of under garment in this dress anyway?
Well, at least her hair and make up is top notch. I love the light frosted color on the eye lid and the pinkish blush color in the crease. I wish I could pull something off like that. 

Eve Longoria- It took me awhile to like this dress. It grew on me as I was preparing photos for this blog. She is a petite person; so, the shortness of this dress gives her the length for her well toned legs. So, jealous!

I think Kim is gorgeous and I would kill for her hair. But this look is too bronzed out from head to toe.

Is it just me or does Kim and Eva look like they could be related?

Chick Flicks for my Valentine's Day Weekend


I am not one to get pulled too much into the over hyped holiday we call Valentine's Day. My fiancĂ© knows how much I love him. I tell him and show him every day. I don't need one day out of the year to express my love for him. Nor do I expect something special from him. There is only one thing I expect from him though and that is to watch the flood of chick flicks that take over the television stations prior to and on Valentine's Day with me. Oh, there's nothing better than a good chick flick to remind you how love can be even if it is superficial in the movies.

I love a good Jane Austen story. She knew how write with depth. This particular version of Pride and Prejudice is BBC made and in my opinion, the best one. It's not glamorized Hollywood style. It feels more real due to the true settings of where the story takes place. The simplicity of everything allows the story to tell it's tale. I love the struggle shown that Elizabeth Bennett goes through and Mr. Darcy. This is true love.
Another Jane Austen story. This was the first Jane Austen story I fell in love with. I love how this story shows two views of love. One being shy and reserved while the other being firey and filled with passion. You could feel both loves and struggles the sisters went through.
Even though this story isn't all true of Jan Austen's life, there are facts that are and gives you a glimpse of how she created her characters for her many novels. Plus, Anne Hathaway is in it and I love her. She is an awesome actress. Anyway, this is a lovely story any Jane Austen fan needs to see.
Based on the life of Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire, ancestor to Princess Diana. The struggles the Duchess went through in her loveless marriage, the passion of her love affair, this story makes you feel it all. Such a strong woman, especially in her time, yet such a sad life. It seems to echo down the family line.
Based on the life of Queen Victoria and how she came into power and the true love she had with the man that made her whole, Price Albert. It's such a short movie, but I loved every bit of it. Plus, I think Emily Blunt is a wonderful actress.
The first Koren romance movie I have seen and I absolutely love it. When watching this film be prepared and have a FULL tissue box near by cause this movie really gets the tears rolling. Love triangles, death of a loved one, renewed love, memories, etc. They really know how to make a girl cry. I hate subtitle movies, but hell, when they are this good, who cares.

From this point on, I am just going to link/list the movies. These are just the feel good Romantic Comedies. I am sure I could go on and on. These are the only ones I could think of at the moment. Do you have any recommendations? What are some of your favorites?

What's in my Purse?

Many beauty guru's and girls on YouTube post videos about what's in their purse, and a friend of mine, Alicia @ I B.E. Addicted did a "What's in my Purse" blog. So, I thought I would do one too. She actually is the inspiration to many of my post lately. Sometimes, blogging can get stale doing reviews or health and beauty/ makeup products. Doing something like this makes blogging fun and interesting. It's all along the same line anyway. So, without further ado..."What's in my Purse" photos.

I bought this Coach purse about a year ago or so when it first came into season. It's the midsize hobo....Madison? Can't really recall. Anyway, it's the only purse I have been using since. I am really picky when it comes to purses and I have yet to really find one in my price range that I want.

Inside of purse...lining is lavenderish in color. Large zippered pocket on one side and there are two opened pockets on the other. I tried putting my cellphone in those but it slips out. So, I put my mirrors in there and whatever else.

Coach wallet I bought at Marshalls or TJMax about 5 years ago, regular coach wrislet that I take everywhere with me when I don't want to lug my heavy purse around, sunglasses that are suppose to be in the car and not my purse, a Sephora rectangular mirror, a round Sonia Kashuk mirror (no reason why I have 2 mirrors, I just do), driving gloves (they aren't normally in my purse, they were just in the way and ended up there), makeup bag.

This is the stuff I keep either loose in my purse or in the large zipper compartment- female necessities, hair ties and clips, that plastic bag looking thing is a plastic barrier used when giving CPR (I kept it from CPR class because I never know when I will need it), lotion from a hotel room (I hate it. It has a horrid fragrance. I have no clue why it's still in my purse.), blue bottle is Bath and Bodyworks 24/7 moisture boost body lotion which I love, Kroger grocery card, pencil, Mountain Dew lip balm (I don't use it really, it's just there) nail clippers, pencil sharpener, Carmex lip balm, gray tube of lipstick is travel size Tarte color Hatha (my fav tube of lipstick. I have it regular size in my makeup collection), Sephora lip gloss in Rosy Glow, 2 softlip lip balms, L'Oreal Bare Naturale Lip conditioner in Soft Mica, L'Oreal Bare Naturale Lip conditioner in Soft Spice, Crystal Light packets, and peanut bar if me or Cameron needs a blood sugar boost if we are out and about.

Now lets open up my makeup bag. This thing weighs a ton.

Degree in Delicious Bliss  (for those days when you need extra protection or when you run our of the house and forgot deodorant), Sephora Clear nail polish, Bare Mineral powder in Summer Bisque, Sephora lip gloss in Precious Pink, Estee Lauder lash primer and high def mascara, Estee Lauder All Over Face Deluxe Compact, Bliss triple Oxygen +C Energizing Cream, Coopertone NutraShield Sunscreen lotion SPF 70, Smashbox Eye Shadow Trio "On Stage," Smashbox HD Foundation (IDK why I even have that in here. It's not even my color), nail filer, Two Face First Base (it's too shimmery, I don't care for it), Stella perfume (not in love with the fragrance, but I do like it) Dior Crayon Eyeliner in Black, and Etee Lauder brushes.

Really didn't think it was that much in my purse until I was typing it all out. I need to really downsize it. Sheesh, no wonder it weighs more than a newborn, lol!

Well, I hope you enjoyed looking inside my purse, now show me yours!

I am always curious about what people's handwriting looks like, especially those that you met via the internet since everything you see is typed. A friend of mine, who is a bloggerista, Alicia @ Andersonondemand, was tagged awhile ago to do a penmanship survey. I thought is was different so I decided I would do it too.

Here's what you do:

There will be 8 questions you have to answer. All your answers have to be written down on paper. Once complete, take a photo of your paper with answers and post it on your blog.


1. What's your name/ your blogger name?
2. What is your blog's name/ URL?
3. Write the following sentence-
          "The quick fox jumped over the lazy dog."
4. Your favorite quote
5. Your favorite song
6. Your favorite band and singers
7. Anything else you care to say?
8. Tag 3-5 people



When I wrote my OCD really kicked in for this, I mean it really did. I think I must have written this over about 10 times before I said to heck with it. I honestly hate my handwriting. I wish I had the penmanship of some of my cousins, aunts and uncles. They all have such beautiful handwriting and I am jealous. I know weird thing to be jealous of. Oh well, LOL!
