Im Too Blessed To Be Stressed!

Im sure everybody could relate to this in someway. Rather you are stressed over your health, school, money, work, family, whatever it is, just stressed about something. Then its time to take a step back, and ask God to take over that stress...

Sometimes we tend to deal with things on our own, we think we dont need anybody to help us, that we could make it on our own. Well if you beleive that, ask yourself how many times have you failed in that area. You may have been ok for awhile, but that problem that turned to stress came right back into your life...its on repeat cycle..just keeps happening and happening.

Its time to ask God to take over it. Prayer is so strong and so needed, its so simple. But so many of us DONT do it, or stay on that path. We loose sight, we walk in the other direction, and we loose faith. It happens, we are human...but at the same time, we know Better.

No matter what you are stressed about, think to yourself, IM TO BLESSED TO BE STRESSED. Because at the end of the day, i bet your Blessings out weight your Stress...think about it. You have alot to be thankful, there are so many people out here who doesn't realize their blessings because they are so focused on whats "bad" in their lives instead of whats "good".

So today, thank God for your blessings and pray to him for your problems, hand it over to him...let him release you of your hurt and pain, its possible, have faith and leave it to him.

So enjoy your day Beauties and as always Stay Blessed!

FOTD:: Purple Passion

Hey Beauties, so this is my FOTD, really I'm just playing around with my makeup and colors for this week. I'm tryna decide what to do for Friday for the concert...so Ill be posting my looks i come up with.

I really love this purple,i love purple shadows period! If i decided to wear this look, ill add some black liquid liner and some falsies to complete the look.

On the corners i added some black shadow (pics below) to add a more intense look.

Products Used, not pictured-> MAC Fix+ and ELF eye primer

The NC 42 I used under my eye for highlight

Colors used. For the Base i sprayed my brush with MAC Fix+ first then i applied the dark purple all over my lid, then using a different dry brush i applied the lighter purple over it and blended. Next i applied both purples to my lower lash line. Finally for the corner i added a little bit of this black to make it more drastic.

CS Shimmer Palette

added this on top of my Dainty Blush

Final Look

Overall, i like it, but I'm not satisfied with this being the look for Friday night...so onto tomorrow...hmmm, I'm thinking Money Green! lol

Almost Time...OMG Concert

Its almost time!!! I cant wait until FRIDAY gets here...im so excited...I really think ill be getting picked, lol *wishful thinking*. I already decided what im going to wear, sexy and classy as always! I cant wait to show you beauties! My friend also found her dress when we went to the mall over the weekend, its hot!

I plan on making my Usher OOTE for that night too, and my friend will be in that video so yall can check her out too, that video should be up next Saturday hopefully.

Now i know i said i was gonna take my Canon but you know what, i really dont feel like carrying that big camera around, and what if something happens to that camera while im out, imma be super pissed. So ill just take my Sony, i can slip that in my clutch easily. Plus i dont plan on taking all those video clips either since i just went in Dec, but i will take a few though since im sitting closer(2nd roll =D).

So let the count down begin....

Cya Friday Usher =) lol

Random...Get to Know ME

Hey Beauties, so i thought this would be fun to do. Something Random to do, letting you get to know me a little better lol. So everything in this post is some Random Things about me, feel free to comment below about anything and if you want to leave something Random about yourself...do it, ill love to read it =)

Lets Get Started Shall We?

I love texting, i can have a whole conversation through a text message, sad but true. Its 2011 baby! lol

I love to eat Mac n Cheese with KETCHUP, sounds gross but it is sooo good!

I dont care to go to the movies alot, i actually get sleepy when i go, not a big movie person, lol i dont keep track of that stuff.

I dont like talking on the phone, unless its very important, send me a text lol. I have 2 kids under 4 so im VERY BUSY, ALL THE TIME.

I cant stand to see babies/children without jackets/hats when its cold outside.

I love to snack, candy and chips, yum!

I love to read books..when i can.

I hate when people dont know when to leave, lol.

I LOVE being pregnant, if i could, i would stay pregnant all year around, i love the bonding and watching my tummy grow, its such an amazing feeling.

I love the spring..and i hate winter

I love holidays with the family!

Going for walks are so relaxing
I hate disrespectful children, i mean not the actual child, but hate how they could become disrespectful--this is the parents fault, we don't look at the child, we look at the PARENT!

Popcorn and hot sauce!

Reality TV, even though its not really "reality" i still love the drama haha

Mexican food (well the TACOS) is my FAVE even though im Half Puerto Rican-smh, i sound like a traitor huh lol

I plan on getting my college degree soon

love flowers, doesnt matter which kind, i just love the smell of fresh flowers


Vivica Lace Front Wig Review:: Lisa

Hey Beauties! So i received this GORGEOUS lace front wig from Vivica Fox Hair Collection , and i must say, this wig is my new FAVORITE lace front, EVER, i loooove it, and the pictures says it all!

This wig has invisibly thin lace top, so no one will be able to tell if you are wearing a wig or not! The cap is "Total Stretch" and it is very comfortable and very very soft. It has three combs on the top, 2 on the sides and 1 at the very top. Adjustable straps in the back, no comb in the back, but trust me its very secure!

The hair is Futura so you can curl it or flat iron it if you choose.

-For curling, set your electric iron between 320-356. Do not go over 356 F because this can damage the hair. Curl each section for at least 30 seconds and hold curl in hand for 3 seconds then release.

-Comb from the bottom up to prevent tangles.

You get GREAT parting room, about 2 inches! The lace is very soft so be careful when handling.

The total inches is about 20 inches long, but it looks shorter due to the waves.

Very natural looking unlike other Synthetic wigs which are shiny

The waves are just so beautiful and the hair is so soft, i really really like this wig, this wig screams BEAUTIFUL.

Side view, perfect style for the summer, beach waves!

Overall i rate this wig an A+, This wig is really great quality, you will love it.

Here is the direct link to this Actual Wig so you can see how it looks on the display
