The Magic of Photoshop

I'm still trying to achieve my Pin Up look and I realize that it's my freckles!  Whenever I take close up pictures, all I can see are my freckles everywhere!  So I decided to mess around with Photoshop and see how I can cover my blemishes..


Can you see the difference? I'm actually pretty satisfied with this shot, so I'm probably gonna submit this picture to the contest. :)

Indulging Myself

I've been hearing about Ulta's Buy 2 Get 1 Free deal of NYX cosmetics for a while and didn't bother to go because I was broke.. So I finally went today.. I swore, I had the hardest time just sitting there deciding what to buy.. I know that I don't need anymore makeup, but just the thought of a SALE gets me running wild.. I didn't spend as much as I wanted, but surely, I got myself some things to indulge for a couple of weeks..
 I got myself two different eyeshadow base.  Their regular in pearly white, and their HD.  I've been addicted to cream blushes, so I was able to pick me up one.  And I can't ever say no to lipstick.  I love lipstick, although most of my shades that I do have, are almost all about the same color.  I've noticed that they also had their Ulta lash primer on clearance for a while, but luckily I waited, because today I saw that they went down some more, and it was only $3.99.  So, I finally decided to pick it up.  :)

Just thought that I also attach a picture of my everyday look.  I've been trying to lighten up my eyeshadow and I guess I did okay.. I'm still in love with my Urban Decay Naked Palette and I haven't stopped using it since I purchased it.  I tried to tweeze my eyebrows the other night, and it turned out horrible.  I guess that's why I stick with waxing at the shop, but as mentioned, I've been kinda broke.. I seriously need a new haircut for the summer, and I need to get rid of my ugly bleached hair.

What a day!

I woke up sick this morning with some kind of stomach ache.. I blame my boyfriend's bananas he bought yesterday because I ate one and afterwards, my stomach was out of control...  On the other hand, I went to the grocery store to pick up more angel hair pasta noodles for my spaghetti sauce from last night and found this...
Oh man, this was yummy.  I'm not a big fan of those Asian guava juices that you buy from the Asian markets because I think they taste way too sweet, but this was good.. It was just right, not too sweet and not too watered down.  They've got other flavors too.  I picked up Guava and Tangerine but have yet to taste the tangerine one.

I wanted to show some of my makeup today, but unfortunately this stomach thing is getting to me.. So rather doing so, I decided to take a picture of my work space..  It's been like this since I moved in to this place, and my boyfriend is rather lazy and won't help me put up my mirror and lights... Then again I did lose the nails and things to  hold up my mirror too.. But whatever.. Here's a picture of my space. I love it.. I don't have too much makeup so everything fits nice and easily inside the drawers.

My desk I bought from Ikea a couple of months ago.  I probably don't need the lights up anyways, because I am sitting in between two windows.. But it would be nice. :)

La Femme Pin Up

I've been trying to do a pin up look, but its a lot more complicated then I thought.  Especially the fact that I have monolids it makes it a lot harder to show my eye makeup...  Blah!  What am I talking about?  It looks nothing like a pin up....

On the other hand... I made some yummy spaghetti with italian sausage for dinner.
I prefer it with italian sausage versus ground beef or meatballs, the flavors are just so much better. :)


Hello.  Out of boredom I decided to start blogging.  I'm completely not sure of what's going to be on here, but bare with me.  We'll make something out of nothing here. :)  Enjoy and follow.
