How To Prevent/Treat Dark Circles and wrinkles!!!

Rite-Aid was having a big sale on Garnier Products for only $9.99usd and if you have a UP Rewards Card, more power to you! I had to buy this because I have wrinkles under my right eye and not my left eye... that's what I get for sleeping on my right side for 25years. So hopefully by purchasing this I will see some good and happy results.

Here is YT video that one of my Make-Up Guru's explain and how to prevent  and treat dark circles and wrinkles. Enjoy dolls!

NOTD: Shellac French Manicure

I finally got my nails as Shellac French Mani. Yes with no acrylic or artificial, what you are seeing is my real nails. I'd only pay $28.00usd now that's a STEAL!!! 

The difference in Shellac Nails verses a regular manicure is Shellac is a 14 day chip-free manicure that stays shiny and fresh. Only thin layers of gel are applied to the nails and cured under an ultraviolet light to create a highly durable, and glossy finish. A Shellac manicure consists of a UV base coat, two coats of color, and a UV top coat. (Hands are placed inside of a UV lamp drier in between each coat).

I recommend every girl out there to get one. It picks up every lash and corner-to-corner with no gaps. Lovesssss it!

Tired of Bad Hair Days

I'm on a mission to find some hair products to help with my dry scalp and condition my hair. Usually for this month, we still experienced the cold "winter" season until March arrives. I refuse to use head and shoulders! I don't know why but I'm too ashame to even touch the bottle. I did some research and came upon LUSH Cosmetics. It appears their TOP 5 Hair Products caught my eye and I'm looking into investing these bad boys.
R&B Hair Moisturizer $18.95
  • Ideal for dry hair
  • Treat to moisturize and control frizzy, soothe dry scalps with calming oat milk (tropical butters and candelilla wax)
  • Smells like Orange Blossom
Big Shampoo $22.95
I need Volume in my hair so I like the Pros of this product.
  • It will soften hair and citrus juices is for shine
  • Full of vitamins, salt is full of minerals and trace elements

  • easy to clean
  • light application
  • hypoallergenic
  • 100% cruelty-free

About ME: 30 Day Challenge (late)

Day 08 - A moment you felt the most satisfied with your life.
I would say the most accomplishment is having my daughter and the day through the miracle of birth; it was the greatest moment she took my breath away. She changes everything and the outlook of life. She's my main priority and center of my universe. I wouldn't change anything and I'm proud to say I love being a MOM and it's the greatest feeling of unconditionally love without questions. It's true they say your world will be the beginning of no ends and worrying about another life. I thank God and his blessing everyday, Amen+

New Music From Lady Gaga

What you think of Lady Gaga's New song??? A carbon-copy of Madonna?

About ME: 30 Day Challenge

Day 07 - Your Zodiac sign and if you think it fits your personality.
I'm a Cancer The Crab:
If I'm not mistaken it falls on 22nd June to 23rd July

My Symbol: The Crab
Ruling Planet: Moon
Quality: Cardinal
Element: Water
Basic Trait: I Feel (Yessssss Compassion and intuition) 
Closest Metal: Silver
Lucky Day: Monday (For me I dislike Mondays LOL)
Lucky Colors: Green, Silver-Grey, Cream and White (I'm just now embracing the color white)
Lucky Gems: Opal, Pearl, Moonstone (I disagree with all of the gems)
Lucky Flowers: Daisies, Wallflowers (For me, I love Thai Orchids)

So the Cancer zodiac sign has the symbol of 'The Crab' which I also have tattoo on my right ankle of the Crab and also 69 behind my left ear. One of the basic characteristics of a Cancerian is that we are very prone to mood swings lol which I can't deny it. Another mood for Cancers is a snappy one, or you can say a "crabby one." I'm one of those Cancerian who is very private and will never run behind fame and publicity (limelight). My thoughts and secrets are strictly off limits for everyone and will never discuss my personal life with anyone. I have stage fright and hate being the center of attention. I may be shy but I can also be the coldest person on this earth. I'm a dreamer and love to dream so sky's the limit. Now don't let my shyness, compassion and soft heart get to you, because if you hurt me in any way (I'm sensitive) I will either cry my heart out or retreat into a silent spell (yes I believe in Black Magic and Military SILENT) so once you hurt me, I will hide under my Hard Shell and put my Guard Up but watch out, I will Snap with my claws. You've been warned. :) 
Each and every experience that affects me, I engraved in my memory. I remember everything life has taught me as a Lesson Learned and fixed my mistakes. I tired not to dwell on the past because that's what most Cancerians do is hold grudges and not letting it go... 

 On another note, I'm a homebody and love spending quality time with family. I'm all about more security, more love and more care. I am a simple person to please. As long there is happiness, optimism and laughter in my everyday life, I have no complaints.

So I'm a little behind in my 30Day Challenge. When I wake up, it's 1:42 am pst, I'll do Day 06 - Write 30 interesting facts about yourself. I Promise You. But I'm afraid to say Bible lol.

Still no luck in finding Physician's Formula Happy Booster Powder & Blush at Target or Rite-Aid... I'm on a mission to find it unless I'm not looking hard enough and at the right department stores.

Well I did went to Rite-Aid yesterday and purchased some Revlon Colorstay and Revlon Photoready and also Maybelline FITME foundations. All I have to say I should have did a swatch on my jawline but I was such in a hurry to pick up my daughter from school that I have to do a return and exchange for a darker shade.

The Revlon Photoready, which I already bought two in the past year or so and didn't match my skin: Natural Beige and Cool Beige. But this time I went for a darker shade of Caramel because Rich Ginger had a tint of red and I know for sure would not match my skin tone. But I failed! lol I may have to mixed Golden Beige with Caramel because there's no other shade in between. 
For the Revlon Colorstay, I got it for my twin sister in Toast and matches perfectly! But it didn't have my shade in Golden Caramel. (Yes my twin is a shade darker than me).
And lastly for the Maybelline FITME foundations, I got them in 310 Sun Beige and also 235 Pure Beige. Well... I failed again! ugh. Rite Aid don't have samples like wal-mart so I couldn't test them. So my agenda for tomorrow is to get two bottles of 320 in Honey Beige.
For all four foundations it only cost me $30.00usd and yesssss no tax in Oregon :) for buy one get one half off at Rite Aid.
Here is a picture I took via mobile but too much lighting. (hint: I need a new phone and put that upgrade in at t-mobile)
 I love Revlon Colorburst Lipstick Packaging!
 My favorite curler for the moment ELF Eyelash Curler $1.00usd

I never would think Portland would offer Speed Dating?!
and some Magazines I picked up while running errands for the past few days... 

I just had to share this: I'm loving my new brown boots that I picked up at Target for only $7!!! What a bargain! Well I am Beauty on a Bargain (I have another princess entering this world in 3 months so I have to really budget my expenses.)

I was at my Dr. appt Friday Morning for my Glucose Testing. These boots are soooo comfy and they are a half size bigger :/

About ME: 30 Day Challenge (late)

Day 05 - A time you thought about ending your own life
Seriously?!! If that was the case I would seek immediate assistance like therapy and counseling. One thing for sure I'm too much of a chicken to end my own life LOL so I answered your question. :)

Day 04 - Your views on Religion
This is such a touchy topic that I really don't like to discuss. But Yes I do have a religion and faith for our Heavenly Father above us. I don't ask people what are they're religion and why nor passed judgement.

Day 03 - Your views on drugs and alcohol
 I’m not opposed to drinking alcohol, but I do believe it's addicting and people who do drink on a daily basis abuse it. The majority of those who consume it are irresponsible in one way or the other and majority of them will be in denial. Trust me I know because I was one of them. Alcohol runs very deep in my family and culture. There were times I would drink so much I blacked out and don't recall how I got home and it's from driving. YES! It's awful. Try to imagine you getting pulled over for DUI or for manslaughter or hit and run, whatever the case it may be, but the principle is You Drink and Drive. SMH! There are times I did go in a phase of taking a break from drinking so when I would meet my sisters and friends at the club or bar, it would drink pure Mother Nature H2O. They teased and joke about me being sober and that I should drink or down a shot of any hard liquor, but the truth is, I was happy being sober and not getting wasted. There's a prettier to life of Sober and being responsible. 
I feel that some people who drink everyday and do drugs are trying to escape things in their life and problems that may not want to face. I know because I speak on experience but not the Drug thing. No! Never have and never will. So what's your poison???
PS I am adamantly opposed to drinking while pregnant and to every pregnant female out there, please care for your child the best way and do not harm and innocent human being that you will bring to this crazy world. We are their vision.

Day 02 - Where you'd like to be in 10 years.
Like everyone else out there, to live the American Dream and to be successful and happy. I'm a family- oriented person so I highly believe in marriage and building a Home and a growing family. I'm already a certified Travel Agent and Medical Office Specialist and hoping to finish school and pursue my lifetime goal and career as a Nurse or Doctor. I would like to relocate to the eastcoast and explore my adventure and life there. I grew up in Northern California and lived in the Midwest in my mid- twenties and back in Oregon (the city of Red Roses, hometown of Portland TrailBlazers -- not a fan!) so relocating to the Eastcoast is definitely one of my goals. People always say to retire but I love to work as long I have time for my kids and family. Would love to travel the world and visit my homeland, Cambodia (I'm an American with Cambodian descent) and most of all, being Happy with Life. I'm pretty simple and laid back kinda bish... so that's a little summary of where I'd like to be in 10 years and from now, it may change lol.
