My Facial Regiment

I got in really late last night and I was getting ready to wash my face like I do every night. And then a thought came to my, Why not film it. I have been saying I would and it was about that time for a new video. As usual leave me comments about what you like and don’t like and of course let me know what else you want to see.

Rihannas’ new tattoos

These pictures were taken while she was in Brazil, if I’m not mistaken. It is also very known that “beachgoers” get temporary tattoos.

I think there a joke. Hence the “thug life” on riri’s nuckles. lol

Only 3 “Good” Black Men For Every 100 Black Women

I saw this article online and found it very interesting. I know a lot of happy african american couples but there are low numbers of african american males who have their heads on straight. Don’t get me wrong I love african american men but as a minority we all should strive for better.

"The study claims that only about 3% of Black men fulfill the criteria of being a good, qualified partner.”

The criteria for being a good, qualified partner was based on “Heterosexual, good-looking, successful, or childless."

For every 100 african american women, there are only 87 african american males.

Here are a couple of interesting statics.

“70% of interracial relationships are comprised of african american males and caucasian women”

“8.5% of african american males are married to caucasian women”

“Roughly 30% of african american males have been to jail at some point in their life's in the United States”.So for every 100 african american women, only 54 qualify. Qualify meaning never been to jail, do not have kids, good- looking and successful.

25.1% of african american males have a degree higher than a School Diploma or GED. Meaning a Associates, Bachelors or Masters Degree. So for every 100 african american women on 44 african american males qualify.Qualify meaning never been to jail, do not have kids, good- looking and successful.

“35% of african american males are unemployed”. For every 100 african american women only 29 african american males qualify.

“About 22% of african american males make 30,000 a year”. For every 100 african american women, 7 african american males qualify.

“Over 1/3 of african american males have children with another women”. For every 100 african american women only 3 african american males qualify. What’s even worse, “66% of african american children do not liver with their biological father”.

These statics were extremely shocking. I did not blog about this to degrade my race because I love my culture. I take and good and the bad. This blog is to acknowledge that we as a whole need to do better for ourselves and our children and their future.

Model Joan Small’ Fashion Week Runway Look

This look was done by James Kaliardos.

Joan Small has walked in numerous runway shows during the 2011 New York Fashion Week. Joans’ make up look in the Rodarte runway show has a lot of people “ohing” and “awing”. This looked was inspired by by Vincent Van Gogh’s painting “Starry Night”. This look incorporates dark blues, grays and blacks. A very intense smoldering eye.

James Kaliardos’ gave a couple of tips for pulling off this look.

"The chubby NARS Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Dark Right (a metallic blue-gray) was spread all over the lid, high above the crease, and underneath the lower lashes.
Over that, NARS Eyeshadow in Night Flight was applied; it’s a blue that is so dark it borders on black and that has finely-milled flecks of silver shimmer.
And to bring to life the sparkling element of the painting, the lids were topped with the NARSEyeshadow in Tropic, a turquoise shade with large chunky silver glitter.
To keep the models’ eyes from getting lost in all the dark colors, the inner rims of their eyes were lined with beige liner, and coated only the top lashes in mascara."

What do you want to see?

Lately I have been having the urge to make more videos on youtube but I  don't know what to do? I don't want to only do OOTD and Haul videos. I don't buy a lot of make up to do reviews on.

As far as tutorials I keep my make up very simple. I very rarely go outside of my natural color zone. Natural meaning different shades of brown.

Once I start my new job, I’ll probably try a lot more new things but until then...What should i do?

Please give me some suggestions. I don’t have a problem with doing reviews once I buy new products. It’s just that I only buy something new if it’s on sale or if I need something.

I think the real reason why I don’t try a lot of new things is because I HATE with a passion buying things and then they don’t work out. Like buying a blush and it not turning out how I thought and now I CANT RETURN IT!  Maybe after so many misses I’ll do a collective giveaway. I am just thinking out loud.

Any other suggestions on youtube videos or a way to get more followers on here and more subscribers on youtube please leave me a comment.

My Daily Facial Regiment

For some reason my skin has been breaking out. This happens twice a year. Summer to Winter and Winter to Summer. This year is seems it seems the break outs have come a little early.

My everyday facial routine consist of Cliniques 3 Step Process. I started using this product October of last year and I loved it ever since.

1st.  Is the liquid Facial Soap. Like any other soap it clears out your pores. I think it also opens then up a little more to help with the next step. I do this everyday in the shower in the morning and at night before I go to sleep.

2nd. Clarifying Lotion. This is an astringent. It pulls more impurities out of the skin. This also removes dirty on the forehead from sweating and from the neck. I also like to use it on my underarms because mine do have a little discoloration and I have noticed a difference.

3. Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. This is used to replenish the skin from everything that was taken out of it. Because I have very dry I skin I usually have to put on top pumps. I do one pump and apply it and then once I feel my face getting tight which is usually in 5-10 minutes, I apply another pump.

A tutorial will be coming soon of how I do my daily facial regiment.

30 Day Challenge

I have been thinking how can I spice up my blog. I use to be so inspired to blog and take pictures but ever since I moved things have been so hectic and I dont go out everyday, so I dont get dressed everyday and its pointless to take pictures in my p.j.s lol. That doesnt inspire anyone.

To get myself out of this rut I’m in. I have decided to do a 30 day challenge. For 30 days I will force myself to get up and get out. Even if I just run to store real quick. So starting tomorrow get ready for the fashion. The next 30 days will include all different kinds of things. Reviews of products, haul videos and maybe a tutorial, I have no clue of what.

So get ready to see a lot more of me on those news feeds.

I hope you all enjoy and please give me comments on how I can improve on my videos.

So I been going through a lot of videos on youtube and I am slowly starting to realize I want to be more activate with the blogging scene but... I am not sure where to start. Most videos are tutorials and there isnt anything I do extremely well that I would want to share with everyone.

Is it cheesy to just re do some of the other videos on youtube, like the hair and nail tutorials and just put my own little spin on it?

I would have to work up to the make up tutorials. A normal day of make up for me is just eyeliner and mascara and if I’m feeling fancy lol, I’ll add my lashes. I want to become more girly and wear more make up when necessary, not just cake it on for a regular day. Only for special events. This raises another problem.
I use to be a semi party girl. As in I was at all the events, not like some crazy teenager gone wild lol. Maybe I will just start out with my monthly favorites, I love a lot of those videos. 

Well my lovely readers be on the look out for some tutorials coming soon.
