The last thing I bought- Cetaphil
3 days ago I woke up and my face felt extremely dry. I am used to having oily skin so I was not really sure what was going on. I tried you using an apricot scrub in hopes of removing the dead skin along with several moisturizers but still no change. Last night I finally called my sister looking for help and she pointed me towards Cetaphil. I washed my face and moisturized with it before going to sleep, when I woke up I could feel my skin returning back to normal.
Face of the DayYesterday I was fourtunate enough to be invited to the Warehouse Party aka the Ft. Myers News Press Award Cocktail hour. Check out the products I used to get this festive look.
- First I started by appling my Black Radiance liquid foundation
- Next I added the MAC Blush-Fever to my cheek bone and right above it, underneath my eyes a add my e.l.f. bronzer
- Following, I primed my eyes using my e.l.f. primer
- For eyeshadow I started by dusting e.l.f. Burnt Plum on the outer coner and crease of my eyes. Next I placed the blue color from my smokey h&m palet to the inner corners of my eyes. For the rest of lid I added a medium purple color.
- Never forget to blend
- Next, I lined only my bottom lash line and winged it out with the e.l.f eyeliner
- Last, I tackeled my lips. I used my e.l.f. eye primer to give me a clean base. Next, I lined my lips with Real Colors Hydra Lip Liner in Pinup Pink and the filled in the rest of my lips with Bite Luminous Lipstick in Violet Vibrant Purple.
One thing in the world I truly miss is being young. That might sound a little weird coming from a 25-26 year old but it seem that everything I actually miss has a direct connection with my age.
When I younger not a many people were not too concerned with “eating healthy” and organic/gluten-free foods. My favorite yogurt growning up was Sprinkler, the yogurt with the lid full of sprinkles(hence the name) you would shake in the yogurt cup. Now when I go into the grocery story I cannot even get regular Greek yogurt. Besides the fact that I am already choosing a healthier choice of yogurt, now my only options are either 100 calories or fat free… yuck.
The other reality of growing up is being broke. Now clearly not evryone goes through this but for me & my crew, that is our current situation. We are all holding out for age 30 because according to my older sister, that is when financial problems go away. I miss the days when it was only right to mooch off my parents. l miss Financial Aid, where the first month of the semester you could ball out. Now my life consist of Work and Bills. Not every aspect of getting old is bad but sometimes l wish I could go back to when I was young or at least a couple of years ago.
All Purple Everything
If I had to choose one eyeshadow color to wear for the rest of all time, l would choose PURPLE. I believe that purple is one of the most versitle colors. You can wear dark purplen for a smoldering goth look, light purple for a soft angelic look , or you can wear bright purple for a bold Nicki Minaj inspired look. Another reasons why purple is my color of choice, is the fact that it could be worn with almost any other color. When I feel like I am drowning in a certain color I know I could splash a little purple on my eyelids to diversify my look.

Welcome to Naples, FL
I live in Naples, FL, where the population mainly consist of old people and teenie boppers. This is the place where the elderly come to TURN UP before they turn down. There aren’t many mid 20 year olds that live here, the few there are, are either “married” or not doing anything of their lives. I’m scared if I stay here I will die alone.
I live Naples… I’m planning my escape.

American Eagle & E.L.F.
- Laid back
- Made for all
Working at American Eagle truly changed my life. I bought my first jeans from them in that period and I’ve never looked back. I can dress them up or just have a lazy day in them, and this goes for all their clothes. I have very long legs and I love that I can by jeans in long and extra long.
Last year, a makeup artist I was working a photo shoot with told me about E.L.F. When I finally made it to Target I was surprised to see the price and I quickly filled up may basket. The next day I tried out the goodies I bought. I with a few makeup tricks I was this makeup lasted all day. From their brushes to eyeliner and their primer to eyeshadow, this is a great brand if you’re looking for top quality at an affordable price.

All Of Me, Not Just My Heart
Falling for someone is very difficult for me. I am guarded, I am scared to let people in because when I love someone it’s with more than my heart. The pain of lose radiates through my whole body and eventually I go numb. Not only do I have to teach my heart to live without you but I have teach my fingers to live without your touch. I have to teach my lips to live without yours, my eyes to live without seeing you not with me. I have to give up your scent and your voice not being mine to have. I have to rebuild myself and it’s hard.
If I’m willing and brave enough to chance rebuilding myself, know you mean a lot to me.
I feel like I’m tethered to you, as much as you pull away I cant seem to free myself of you. It’s tiring being sprung along and I need to learn how to free myself of you.
