Where have you been?

Hey hey everyone!

Sooooo yeah I haven't posted here in a long time. I have been going through a lot of ups and down's with my life. It's very unstable and I'm trying to get my feet planted on the ground and get my head right. Right now I feel like I'm rising out of the ashes of the old me. I'm just trying to better myself and this process isn't an easy one. Change is hard sometimes, especially if you've been a certain way for years. Small steps are what I'm taking. With that said, I don't plan on getting rid of this blog. Just be patient with me and I'll be more open with sharing my life here. I know most have abandoned blogspot but I'm not ready to let go just yet. So be on the look out for new posts in the future! I love all my followers and appreciate you for being here! ^.^
Peace out girl scouts! Love and light <3

Small review on IMAN powder foundation

I have been looking for a good powder foundation to wear during the summer b/c with liquid I always feel like my face is melting even with a finishing spray. I also wanted one just to have something lighter to wear  and something quick for days when I'm rushing out the house. One of the products that caught my eye was IMAN's Luxury Pressed Powder. I always wanted to try her products since there's this huge selection of brown's and tans for women of color.

But I guess that's where the problem comes in. Since there's this huge array of tones, how do I know which one will match me? And since the only places that carry it near me are at drugstores and you can't take stuff out of the packaging and try it on. You gotta eye it. When I first bought it I thought I had the right color but it came out hella dark on my skin yet in the compact it was a different color. So I took it back for an exchange. I got the color that I thought was too light but low and behold it was a match! lol I am more than happy with it now!

I did half of my face with the foundation and one half without. This first pic the make up side. Also I didn't use any concealer soooo ignore my eye bags lol.

Makeup side

 Side without make up.

None of the photos are edited. 

Pics of my face with the foundation on both sides.

Gawd I look weird without my gal make on lol Them brows need help lol lol.

ANYWAY!... lol.....Since it's pretty light you will have to layer it to get full coverage but I only had to do it two or three times. I wasn't looking for full coverage anyway, just something that covers decently enough and not heavy feeling on my face. Overall I am happy with it and would purchase another. Although it is a little pricey, coming in at 16.49 but with tax it was 18. I suppose thats not a lot to some buuuuttt I'm unemployed at the moment so any money I do get I save. 20 bucks is hard to let go of sometimes lol. 

I would recommend IMAN's products to other women of color. There's so many ranges of skin tones and different types of products to try. IMAN has bb creams, cc creams, concealers, liquid foundation, lipstick, lip gloss, finishing sprays, toners...etc I plan on trying some other things as well!

So this concludes my review on IMAN's Luxury Pressed Powder Foundation <3

Perfume coming to the states!!!

For those who don't know I'm a big fan of Perfume and I never thought I'd see the day when they'd come to the states! Of course they are only hitting up LA and New York but I'm making it my mission this year to go. Specifically to the New York one b/c it's closer.

I have some friends that are hardcore fans and of course they are tweeking all over facebook about it lol. I'm so hyped right now. I'm saving up money as we speak! I'm getting that ticket sometime this month hopefully.

I really want to practice some of their dances so I can bust a move at the concert. Imma be on it!! lol

I'm sure this will be an experience to remember so I'd advise those who are fans to get that ticket noooowww lol. Even if you never really listened to them before I'm sure you'll enjoy some of their music as well!

TTYL ya'll, that's it for now <3

Long time no see!

Hey hey all, I'm legit sorry for not keeping up with this blog. But if you follow me on tumblr or facebook you'll know that my online presence is still here. I haven't went completely m.i.a.

I don't know if you noticed but I did change my blog a bit. I changed the background and the banner. I'm going to mess around with the banner more though. It's aight....I feel like some stuff is missing. I'm not really completely done with the new look yet. Gotta change some pictures and the music.

Besides all that I have a few posts I'm excited to make. Finally some interesting things started happening and more to come!

This post was just a little heads up to everyone that I'm still alive and will be making some new posts real soon. ^.^

Cannabis Queen

So I just want to let you all in on a little story about my life from the past til now.

 Back in the day, lets say around 2006 when I was a sophomore in high school. A guy I was dating at the time introduced me into weed. At that time I already had preconceived notions about it. You know those commercials with those deflated people that were "high" and couldn't do anything with their lives? Well those influenced me and so I thought you know maybe it wasn't such a good idea but alas peer pressure took over and I had my first puff. But sadly that one puff backfired. literally four minutes later I ran to the bathroom and threw up my food I had just eaten before hand. After that experience I was done. Never again. AND THEN those same guys I had smoked with (not my ex though) had gotten high and decided it was a good idea to rob a t-mobile outlet store. They through a brick though the window and just wound up being arrested. Then my thoughts on it were even worse and continued to grow into negativity. From that point on in my head only delinquents smoked weed.


Some years later like around 2008 I met the love of my life, my current bf.  Found out he was a smoker, a weed smoker. At first I was like "ew" but then I got over it as long as he never did it around me. And at this time a whole lot of my friends I had met online (Tomo, Lisha, Kira Kira, etc...) came out of the wood work and told me they smoked too. I seriously felt like "ok well ya'll do you and Imma do me...without weed" lol. THEN When I went to Chicago for school and me and Tomo became roommates I met a lot more people through her who also smoked. They never really bragged about it they just said they did it a few times and enjoyed it. Of course I felt some kind of way because for some years I had this image in my mind of who smoked weed and why it was bad. But the more people I met that told me they smoked they started breaking down that negative stereotype. A lot of them had jobs or multiple jobs, they weren't deflated (lol), they had ambitions in life, went to school, graduated already, nice clothes, really cool to be around. My world kind of shifted but even then I still didn't want to smoke. I was just ok with others doing it and didn't think negatively of them for doing it.


2013 rolls around and a lot happened, stuff like family changes, friends coming and going, school being rough.....and me making the decision to finally try smoking again. It was sometime in June that I tried it again with my bf. I did it and and didn't throw up...with the first puff lol. Second time I hit it harder than I should have and wound up throwing up again. But after I threw up I was high as fuck. I dunno what happened but I was on cloud nine. And instead of being disgusted by it I wanted to do it again! But next time take smaller puffs, especially since I was still a noob at smoking. Ever since then it was like a match made in paradise. I actually went on a research spree to learn more about weed b/c all I really knew still was....really nothing. I watched documentaries on it too. The more knowledge I collected the more those negative walls I had built fell down. And even more people came out and told me they smoked too, people I wouldn't dream of thinking smoked. Hell I saw a cop the other day smoking (although I believe he shouldn't be while on the job but hey a chill cop is the best ind of cop lol lol lol lol). I would just like others to know who were like me in the past to know that weed isn't used only by "bad" people or "hippies" and that there are legit medical benefits to it. Everyday people, neighbors, friends, business men and women, monks, spiritual leaders and mother monster Gaga! lol...everybody and anybody can smoke it. And all honestly I rather people smoke weed than slowly kill themselves with tobacco (of which helped killed my grandfather). Of course there's going to be those knuckle heads that smoke but I don't think about them and they don't think about me. What they do isn't my business. I'm not going to sit here and say "GO SMOKE WEED!" I'm just letting you know about my story and maybe if you want to that it's ok. I still have friends that don't smoke and I respect their choices too. It's all about respect really. I also wanted to tell this story b/c I feel that ever since I started smoking I have had a better head on my shoulders and calms my anxiety and nerves...and body. Well yeah. Thats all. Love and peace my lovelies.

Gaga ass weed for Halloween lol

( To those who take offense to this post just pretend you didn't see it and move on :) )

(*ノ゚▽゚)ノA Happy New Year。+.゚ヽ(*´∀`)ノ゚.+。

Wishing you a late Happy New Year from me to you!! LOL

This year I spent New Year's with just me and my boyfriend.  I was expecting to hang with friends and what not but I think this was best. Smoked a little bit, drank a little bit and had a good time. We also shared our first New Year's kiss ever!! We've been together for four years now and never got the chance to actually spend New Year's together. <3

I didn't really create any resolutions but I do have goals I set for myself to make this year better. I've been planning this since last month too. Basically some of what I plan to accomplish this year is to do extremely well in school, get into shape and healthy, become the gyaru I know I can be, FIND A FUCKING JOB and meditate more. Of course my list is a bit longer but this is just a snippet.

Along with the new year me and my boyfriend decided to add another member to our family. We got a kitten and her name is Aiden. Pronounced Aye-den....a as in "ate". She is four weeks old and full of life.

There will most definitely more spam on this little one in the future lol.

I haven't posted any pics of me recently so I have some from last month that I haven't posted here.

Me & Tomo <3

Soooooo yeah. Thats me lol. Can't wait to see what new pics I'll have for this new year!!
