Today's a sad day for me. One year ago today, I lost someone very close to me. He was only 25. I can't believe an entire year has passed. He'd been in my life since I was 13 years old. Our last words weren't the kindest and we didnt quite get to smooth things over and now I have to live with that. I feel so sad in a helpless way cause there's nothing I can do about it. I just really wish he would come to me in my dreams.

Vincent Jr.-6 months old since June 10th :-)

 Here's one of the Loves of my life :-)


Are you ready for Christmas?

This year has been going beautifully. We finally got our son, Tiana started school, Mya's learning a whole lot, my Husband's doing well at his job. Things have really been great. This is the time when I really find myself reflecting on my life. Take a moment to reflect and enjoy the stroll down memory lane. And, as far as the rough spots from your past go, consider them lessons learned and try to appreciate it all.
Happy Holidays, Loves!!!

Mascara Review! Imju Fiberwig's "Lash Knockout"

Well, hello there gorgeous! How has the week been treating you? Beautifully I hope :-) If you guys don't know by now, I'm kiiiiiinnnndddaaaaa obsessed with mascara. I've tried so so so many. I know everyone says that, but I can seriously come up with 20 names in like 2 seconds, lol. Everything from drugstore mascaras to $30 mascaras. With that said, I have come across my HG mascara. My Imju Fiberwig never fails me. It keeps my lashes curled just how I curled it ALL DAY. It never smudges. It's easy to take off (you just need warm water!) It makes my lashes look longer and pitch black. I do have to work with it a bit to get the volume I want, tho. That's what lead me to try their new release "Lash Knockout." It is supposed to deliver amazing volume and still carry the other characteristics from their best selling formula. I tried it. I fell in love....again. Then it broke my heart. But, we still talk.

Why did it break my heart? We had to call it quits cause it smudged on me :-( I completely thought it was impossible for any Imju Fiberwig mascara to smudge. It seems like any mascara that I try that's advertised to give volume ends up smudging on me! I just don't get it. How ironic is that when all I really need is volume since I'm happy with the length of my lashes? Years ago I could wear ANY mascara I wanted and I never had issues with smudging. Now, I can't even wear waterproof formulas cause even they smudge on me. That's why my heart belongs to Fiberwig. It's the ONLY mascara that doesn't smudge on me no matter what. So, I'll be staying true to their main formula. I'll just throw some extra coats and I'll get my desired volume, no biggie. The results of "Lash Knockout" are truly gorgeous, tho.
Oh, and excuse my tiredness in the pix, didn't get much sleep and it was late at night when I took these.

 I'll probably do a post on the other formula that is completely smudge free so you can compare. Now, I leave you with a lil' something to make you smile :-)
 I LOVE his eyes! He is just so perfect in every way :-) He looks at me with so much love and with this expression like he knows how much I love him :-) We have such a beautiful connection! I could go on and on, lol.
 Till next time my loves! Muaahh!!!

Tutorial Fail :-/

Hi Loves! How's your Monday treating you? Great, I hope! So, about a week ago I was up late (like always) and I felt inspired to make a youtube vid. I had a makeup tutorial in mind so I went downstairs to my vanity and started putting colors on. I thought it was going well, but I really didn't like the outcome. I was so disappointed that I didn't even post the vid :-( I did, however, take some pix of the outcome and........yeah. Try to be nice, lol.
*sigh* I had such high hopes for this look. But the stars weren't aligned, my hands weren't blending to their best ability, and my spirit was brought down by the bad lighting. And, I can't for the life of me figure out how to get black eyeliner from bleeding into my under eye creases. I set the liner with powder, I tried putting the liner before concealer and after, I tried my Blacktrack fluidline (which held up the best but still not satisfying). Ladies, what am I missing??? Uugh. Are my eyes just destined to be the home of all smudges of the world?

Enough about the negative and on to the positive :-)
Our lovely son, Vincent Jr. is growing beautifully. He is such an easy baby, it's unreal. Each child I have seems to be easier newborns to handle than the last, lol. Here's some pix I took of him today :-)
Aaaahhhhh.....I could squeeeze my laptop right now, lol! He's the most perfect baby boy ever :-)

Well, ladies, I'm gonna go finish filiming this mascara review now. It's about the new Josie Maran mascara with argan oil in it. Check out the outcome by clicking here.
Have a beautiful night/day & I'll holla at cha soon!

Makin' Up 4 Lost Time

Hey Loves!!!! It's been far too long since we last hung out! I'm sorry I've been neglecting you guys, but I'm back and bearing gifts :-) I filmed a few youtube vids today just for your viewing pleasure and of course I'm not gonna leave you guys without posting some pics! In case you don't already know, I gave birth to my son on June 10th!!! Life has been even MORE beautiful since he came into our life :-) He makes me so happy, I could just stare at him forever, lol. *insert squeezing motions here*

He is so perfect :-)

I'm also glad to report that the baby weight has just been falling off on it's own so far. Here's a pic of me exactly 2 weeks after giving birth. I'm still counting down the days till I can work out, tho!

Shocking Pink!

I can't stare at this color enough! I LOVE this nail polish! It's called "Shocking Pink" by China Glaze and it's a Neon color that is just gorgeous. It almost glows it's SO neon *Love* Oh and I can't believe it but I finally won something! I entered a twitter giveaway that China Glaze was having and I actually won! And, the prize was amazing :-D I won the entire "Up & Away" collection. Yes, all 12 gorgeous polishes!!!! I LOVE CHINA GLAZE!!!!

28 Weeks Today! :-)

Hey guys! How are you?! Hope everyone is doing great :-) I'm 28 weeks pregnant today....and it just hit me that-that means I'm now 7 months along! Time is running by us sooo quickly, it's surreal. My pregnancy has been really smooth and I'm SO grateful for that. This is the first normal pregnancy that I've ever had. My last two were anything buy normal and were quite stressful. Our son now weighs in at 2 lbs. 9 oz. :-) My little cutie-patootie will be here soon!!!

The other day my husband & I made a bet. A very serious bet. He bet me that the baby is going to weigh 8 lbs. or more and I bet him that he would weight 7 lbs. or more, but not 8 (at birth). What was the wager, you ask? Well, if I win, I get to go on a huge shopping spree after I lose the weight I want to lose. If he wins, I am banned from buying clothes, makeup, shoes, accessories...pretty much anything beauty related for an entire year! My intuition tells me that I'm gonna win, but if I don't then.......let's just keep it positive and say I'm gonna win, lol :-p

Other than being pregnant, I've just been taking care of my family, trying to keep up with them actually, lol. And, trying to keep up with my home, making sure it's nice and clean and what not. My husband has been THE best. On his days off he takes care of the girls, makes me breakfast in bed, & lets me sleep in as long as I need to. It's a really great feeling to be surrounded by real love. That's about all I have for you guys as far as updates go! Everything's been great :-)

Up Late, Thinkin'....

Hi Loves! Before I say anything else, let me FIRST thank all of my new followers! And, of course I must thank my loyal followers that have been here since day one. I really appreciate all of you & I'm happy you find my blog worthy of following :-) So, with that said. This entry is basically about life. I was just watching an episode of MTV's "True Life." The topic was about young adults "coming out" to their family about being homosexual. Since I am a parent, it really got me to thinking about life and things that I may have to face in life. There were some parents that completely disowned their kids over the fact that they were gay. I mean, they kicked them out of their house and didn't speak to them for years. Now, I don't know if I'm crazy or what, but there is NO way I could ever EVER disown my child over them being gay. In fact, that sounds completely insane to me. Not having a relationship with my babies would kill me. Then there were others that treated the kids as if they had some disease and it was something they would just have to deal with. It's baffling that in the year 2010, these issues and mind frames still exist. It's as crazy as racism, almost like another form of it. So, as I was thinking about my life as a parent, I put myself in their situation and imagined my babies in that situation. I can honestly say that I would love them just the same. As long as they fall in love with a good person that has great intentions and is an overall great addition to their life, then I'm just fine. Why is it so hard for people to understand my way of thinking? I feel so bad for all the kids in the world that become disowned, teased, assualted, and depressed over this. It's not fair at all. Well, I was just thinking about this so I thought I'd share. If any of you have anything to add or if you just want to say hi, please do so :-) And, thanks again for becoming a blog buddy :-)

Till next time....

The mail came today.....

Hi Loves :-) How was your Monday? I hope yours was better than mine, lol. I'm in a pretty frustrated mood at the moment which is why I haven't made a youtube vid today. I was planning on making one showing all the great stuff I got in the mail. Maybe I still will. We shall see. Anyways, I ordered from 8ty8Beauty on January 12th and received it today, January 18th. Everything came packaged nicely and nothing was damaged. I didn't realized how many pinks I got out of the 12 China Glaze polishes I bought, lol. But, they are all slightly different pinks so it's ok :-)
I also ordered what I thought was a WALL nail polish rack but ended up ordering the table display >:-/ I will try to call them tomorrow to see if an exchange is possible. Hopefully they're reasonable. Here is my entire nail polish collection on the mentioned table display.

I also ordered some things from Mario Badescu on the same day and received them today aswell. I didn't get much this time around. Just a body lotion and body soap with the 3 samples you always get with every order. I'm so excited to try these out because I have Keratosis Pilaris on my upper arms. It has gotten much better over the past years but I think it can still improve. I read great reviews on the lotion and soap I ordered so I'm hopeful :-)

That's it for now guys. I hope you have a great week and I'll keep you posted on how well the Mario Badescu products work out. I won't be able to paint my nails with my new polishes till after I have my baby so that will have to wait. Love u guys! Muaaahh!!!

TEXT 90999

Hi Loves. I'm sure by now you've all heard about what's happened to Haiti. Honestly, I'm upset at myself for not having posted this sooner. Haiti is in a state of great need and The Red Cross has set up a way for you to donate thru texting "Haiti" to 90999. When you do that, it automatically charges $10 to your phone bill. That $10 goes to the people suffering in Haiti. If you can spare $10, PLEASE donate it. They need it more than we could ever imagine.

Thank you guys!!!
