Makeup Monday: Highlighting Obsessions


Ever since I have been lurking through other hotness of ladies of Instagram. You get to learn ones craft of how to look amazing. What is their secret? Highlighting. Point. Blank. Period. This is my take on highlighting. I highlight on the bridge of nose, above cheek bone and cupid bow. My go to highlighter item is:

MAC Pro Sculpting Cream {Naturally Defined} applied with fingers:

Cap On
Cap Up
Bottom Up
Benefit Hoola Bronzer applied with MAC Brush 108 {contouring} :



Selfies Via iPhone {no filters} just bad lighting lol:


 
Of Course, I can't take serious photos without being a goofball. haha. Thank you for your patience. My birthday was a week and a half ago and I been busy doing nothing...nothing too too important. lol. I am planning to post a whole lot more in the upcoming weeks...:). Stay tuned!

Until Next Time, Stay Healthy and Fabulous!!

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day Friends! Did a Tag of Love for today...for the sake of posting something today. But it turns out that I got to be nosy and ask my hubby some questions. Surprisingly he was a good sport and complied..hehe.  

Without further ado, the 'It's all about Love' tag.


We were at a wedding and tad tipsy...dont judge. LOL.
1. What was your first impression of me?

  Warren : Hot and Sexy
Me: Oh boy, right? Well, to be completely honest I have to say REALLY Quiet and Cute.

2. Describe our first date in one word.

Warren: Stupendous

  Me: lol, Passionate is more like it. Our good night kiss on the second flight of the stairs outside my apartment lasted an hour.  Couldn't care less who saw us kissing. (dorm area of a very tiny PRIVATE CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY) I felt like Vivian (Julia Roberts) at the end of the movie of 'Pretty Woman'.

3. What do you love most about me?

Warren: your butt

Me: Thanks babe, really? I would say the same but I love that he's accepts me, for me...flaws and all.


4. What's the best thing I've ever cooked for you?


Warren: YOUR Country Fried Steak topped with mash potatoes and green bean casserole

Me: Have to agree that's my best tasting and BIG caloric meal, it's restaurant worthy if I had to say so myself. Something you would see on Food Network 'Diners Drive Ins and Dives'. I have to say that he cooks the best steaks ever. Or at least how I like it cooked.


5. What's your favorite activity we do together?

Warren: Play softball 

Me: That didn't surprise me. I say watch TV and see you tear up on sad touchy moments. Like the show Intervention.

6. What's the one thing I do that drives you crazy?

Warren: Yell.

Me: Yeah...I know. But can you stop eating with your mouth open. 
*awkward*

7. Cuddling? Do you like to be big or little spoon?

Warren: Big

Me: Little bit of Both, nuff said.

8. Best memory you have of us?

Warren: Having kids

Me: Getting our first apartment together...felt like actual grown ups.

9. Where do you see our relationship in 5 years?

Warren: Happier that the kids are older

Me: Amen to that! Love how adorable they are, but independence is true bliss. I think once Aubree is like 5, I would be a whole lot saner. Family Vacations would be a lot less stressful and lightweight (no more diapers, strollers and carrying in arms) 


10. What's the most surprising thing you learned about me since we've been together?

Warren: You like to run half marathons.

Me: Your Mistress is softball bats and balls. Obsessed much? I wished for a tall dark and handsome man with the love of baseball...but Holy Hell! LOL.

Even though his answers were short and er...sweet, you get the jest of how in LOVE we are with each other...NO? Well, be with the dude for almost 12 years...and getting anything out of him would be a success! LOL. Accomplished.

Although to me Valentine's day is just another day, I hope you all enjoy yourself with your loved ones. Enjoy the flowers and chocolates and other gifts that you may receive today. 


Until Next time, Stay Healthy and Fabulous!!

The Laine Blogger Award

 Hi Friends, Hi!


Dang! I know its the Award season and all (Grammy, Golden Globes, etc) but I didn't know that I was gonna win anything. Thank you Vicky over at 'The Greek Housewife', for tagging me in this Laine Blogger Award! Who is Laine? I looked high and low for the actual meaning, but couldn't find any info on it. If you have better luck, let me know.


I’ve heard that the rules are as follows:
1. Tag the blogger who awarded you.
2. Award five more bloggers. Pay it forward!
3. It’s always fun to get to know one another so Vicky added this little beauty survey!

The five questions for the Laine Blogger Award:
1. What is your current beauty obsession?
2. What is one beauty item you wished you owned?
3. What kind of posts are your favorite posts to write, and read?
4. What inspired you to become a blogger?
5. What color nail polish are you wearing right now?

1. What is your current beauty obsession?
  •  Vanities. Obsessed in looking for inspirations on Youtube, Pinterest and PB Teen. I am currently making my own beauty space of my own. 
 My Dream Vanity...Some Day
~*Hampton Vanity Tower and Super Set from PB Teen*~


2. What is one beauty item you wished you owned?

  •  I do not own it, but I am probably gonna cave and get a  PMD. For some reason, I have been obsessing about my enlarged pores and want to to extract and clean the suckers out. Gross, I know.
3. What kind of posts are your favorite posts to write, and read?
  • I love to read other peoples blogs. It is great to unwind and relax with a cup of tea and read about other people's problems and interests rather than focusing on what I have to deal with in my reality life.  
  • I love to write about anything that pops up in this small gigantic head of mine.  
4. What inspired you to become a blogger?
  • My Weight Loss Journey. I have never really thought to claim to become a 'blogger', just a place to write down my progress on my weight loss was all that I was looking for at the moment of creating a blogspot. Does that make sense? I think I truly became one when people started to take notice that I was posting more than just weight loss issues. 
  •  Before:
            After:

5. What color nail polish are you wearing right now?
  • Can't say that I am wearing any polish right now. I'm au naturel. I am more concerned about not biting these suckers than painting them.They are so long, strong and pretty...that's what she said...lol. Don't believe me, take a look at these babies!
\\ Pretty great from a former nail biter, going on 3 weeks now...lol. //


I knew exactly who I wanted to award so here they are:

Duckie @ Oh that frikken DUCKIE...
Nicole @ Life in the Boys' Locker Room
Rachael @ Letters from a Mermaid
Areeba @ She acts like Summer
Vanessa @ What Vanessa Does

Thank you so much for the support! Live. Love. Laugh. Until next time, Stay Healthy and Fabulous!!

What I Wore Wednesday, I mean Tuesday.


Sorry I haven't been visiting this weekend...My internet connection was out this weekend.


Oh My Goshness. I really suck in photography. This is why ladies and gents that I don't do 'What I Wore' or OOTD (Outfit of the Day). And Not only do I have a nasty fat cold sore on my top lip, I am not in the mood to put any make up on right now. My face still hasn't gotten used to Cetaphil yet. Not that anyone need or want to see my mug, I avoided going out this whole weekend. And now I just realized that its not even Wednesday yet. This was meant for What I wore Wednesday...but its Tuesday morning.Oh what luck.

Some girls are pros on staging their shit and making a great instagram photo on what they are wearing. What should only take 5 minutes, took me an hour. ok okay, 45 minutes. 15 minutes of it, I was eating. Sorry, I can over exaggerate sometimes always...lol. This is harder than it looks. You think you are just going to take photos in what you are wearing but there are so many elements you have to worry about.

SUCH AS:

Staging or Positioning to the right angle. FAIL.

Lighting. FAIL.
Do I look Pregnant or "Fluffy" FAIL.
Looks way better on me, than on the hanger. FAIL.
Awkwardly angling my legs and camera on a dirty entry way hall. FAIL.

Do I Sit Down? Felt Awkward. FAIL.

 Then you realized that this is not happening, so you take the least fugliest pictures and make a collage and use some reddish tint filter to make it look almost appeasing to thy eye.  Then you look closer to your pictures and add other things on the to do list...

Clean out Magazine Subscriptions
Vacuum the carpet...really really good.
Straighten out the makeup drawers. FYI, I only have 3 nail polishes...shows how much I don't paint them.

The whole reason for this post was inspired by my Instagram #5shotchallenge. Its a challenge where you have to post 5 different photos. These photos are relation to the theme or hashtag that the person that tagged you, gave you.  My theme was #Red tagged by @macaroonsandbabies. (By the way, add her, shes from San Francisco and her kids are adorable whom eats adorable and healthy foods prepared by the awesome mom herself.) 

3 Red Spices
Favorite Treat
Quinn via imadeface app
I LOVE Netflix
Today was my last day to post my 5th pic of my theme. Since the red ties to Valentines Day, I posted on what I'm planning to wear for the overrated Holiday of Love. Actually, I don't even know if we are going out...its a school night. BUT we will see. I definitely am not going to wear heels just for errands during the day...oh hell no.

 


Jacket // London Fog; Gifted
Skinny Jeans // American Eagle; AmericanEagle.com
Shoes // Just Fab 'Venice'; JustFab.com 
 Lipstick //MAC 'Ruby Woo'; Macys.com
Lip Liner // MAC 'Redd'; Macys.com

Anywho, I'm up and giving you Fashion Ladies a standing ovation for your true talent and awesomeness in doing things that looks easy but its not. Maybe its just me. I'm not too keen in all things beauty. I swear ever since my pregnancies, I lost my touch on getting ready effortlessly. I was the go to person to ask how to do hair and make up, now its the other way around. I don't know when I will be doing this again.

 Until Next time, Stay Healthy and Fabulous!!

Walmart Haul






The whole reason, I went to Walmart was to pick up my online order of two vanity mirrors.  My husband and I rarely go to Walmart because my husband just don't like going there. I didn't know that I had to put the mirror together, so it almost didn't fit in the car. Grrr. The kids legs were a lil squished as it fit in front of them in the back. Good thing it was a short ride to the house.

Sauder Shoal Creek Mirror, Soft White Finish $109 each.



It was a bitachness to put together. It made Ikea furniture look so easy. It is so tiring that I only put one together. And that was Friday. I will reveal my whole vanity space when its ready.

Alcohol and lighbulb...not exactly interesting...


You are wrong! Well its pretty exciting for me, because I have this old Halogen Lamp that has been needing a bulb replacement. Its been like 7 years...haha. I still dont know if this is the right size and what not. Fingers Crossed. I got alcohol because you need to swab it on the halogen light bulb. You also can not touch the light bulb, its poisonous to the skin. I think that's why its been taking me ages to change the light bulb. I knew there was a reason. Bingo.

Flour Sack Kitchen Towels


This is 'My Go To Kitchen Towel' to Dry DISHES. I hate doing dishes, but with this towel, it makes drying dishes a cinch. Its lint free and a moisture sucker. It makes your dishes squeaky clean. I heard of this from my grandparents so its been a family thing for years.

I also like to use these towels for my hair drying towel. Of course, don't use same towel on dishes. It's less bulky and does what any hair wrap towels do. Way better look than the traditional bulky beehive look. Go grab a pack, you will thank me later and throw all your other dish towels out!

Hydrogen Peroxide

I don't think I ever bought hydrogen peroxide before in my life. Looking for it was a task. There are more than 2 different kinds of hydrogen peroxide.  I ended up getting the one with a gargle or Rinse on the bottle. The reason I got it, in the first place is to make a homemade teeth whitening concoction.  You can find the recipe here.

 Nature Made Fish Oil


My body fat percentage is pretty high for my weight and height. Somewhere On Pinterest, it says a daily dose of fish oil helps it reduce the body fat %. So I am giving it a go.

Band Aids and Q-tips, bathroom necessities. Nuff Said.



 Thanks for visiting my blog! It means a lot that you guys come back for more useless rants and raves from little oh moi. See you on the flip side!

Until then, Stay Healthy and Fabulous!!

KLee
