Hope this helps give you girls an idea on what to do for Valentine’s Day! As for me and hubby, we celebrate it on occasions, because honestly we really don’t need a day to be special towards one another. =) Plus this year’s Vday falls on Chinese New Year weekend and I’ll be in Philly […]

Unfortunately I am not much of a country fan, perhaps more towards country pop, so I did not watch the CMA’s few weeks ago. Fortunately, someone from facebook posted a link of Kelly Clarkson’s performance and I instantly fell in love with her updo. If you want to see how it was done, go ahead […]

As promised, here’s the tutorial to go along with the Sedu Clipless Iron that I used, which I did the review in my last post. With the shortness of time that day, I did my makeup beforehand, but will list what I used below tutorial. The inspiration from this tutorial stemmed from Angelina Jolie’s Tomb […]

Happy New Year! I’m in the process of redoing past videos so this is one of them & decided to update this post too. I’ve been trimming my hair since high school and of course practice makes perfect. I actually didn’t get my very first hair cut until I went to college and even then, […]

Last year I went to a house party for Halloween and it was way too boring, but this year I made a point to head out to DC for some dancing and costume fun. At first, I was going to go as Lady Gaga but then changed my mind and went as a Greek Goddess. […]

Update 7.13.09 – I’ve actually discontinued using this product about 2 months ago since I had minor breakouts along my chin and for some reason, getting red spots on my cheeks. I’m not sure if it’s just my skin being sensitive to the ingredients but I rather not risk continuing to use it. I hope […]

This song has seriously been on repeat for me the past couple of weeks and I even got hubby hooked! I love music videos that incorporate several different looks into one and this one’s no dfferent – each of her looks was just as interesting as the next one. I’m almost tempted to do another […]

Hey everyone! I know this is late in the month, but I wanted to let you know of a campaign headed up by Radiant Cosmetics to Kiss Slavery Goodbye and help end human trafficking. As you all know, I love a good cause and when I heard of this, it was a no-brainer. If you […]

Ever have problems with UDPP drying out when depotting? I’ve had my tube for the longest time, because I was afraid to depot it and have the primer dry out on me. One of my subscribers brought to my attention that EnKore had a tip on this who got it from Brittany (ClumpsofMascara). Sharing is […]

About a week ago, I was trying to figure out what to do for Valentine’s Day video and came up with this knot technique to create an updo. Then yesterday hubby and I were sitting around when “When in Rome” came on Sho. Sometimes ppl ask me where I get my ideas and inspirations and […]

The one thing that I have been stocking up for the past year and even picked up two more this fall were blanket scarves. I have no shortage of them currently and have been interchanging them according to my mood. When I first started wearing them, however, they took some time to get used to […]

Hello and happy Tuesday! I’m thankful to be living in the DC area where I can still hold onto summer just a little bit longer.
