12 Laws of Success - Russell Simmons The Laws

Something I wanted. to share my lovebugz ♥

1. Always Do You. Be true to yourself and your vision of success - the "Do You" of the title.
2. Have a vision and stick with it. Once you have a vision of success, follow it despite all obstacles.
3. Get your mind right. Approach every challenge with the right, confident attitude.
4. Stop frontin' and start today. Anyone can talk big - it's the things you actually do that define you.
5. Never give less then your best. Give you best at all times, for all tasks.
6. Surround yourself with the right people. Find people with the same or similar goals, listen to them, and rely on them for support.
7. There are no failures, only quitters. The only real failure is quitting.
8. Science of success. Plant the good seeds. Do the hard groundwork.
9. You can never get before you give. Contribute to a process and help it grow.
10. Successful people should be open to change.
11. Be powerful, be heard. Make sure your opinion gets across.
12. Spit truth to power. Be painfully honest with people to people in positions of power over you.

Cannot Possibly Be Yours

Yes, this is my rant so beware virgin ears!
I hear this all the time: If someone is adamant that the child (ren) I am with "cannot possibly be yours," you bet I'm defending myself with a smart remark and yes full attitude!( Snap snap snap!!!) In public or at home, I could care less. I think people don't think before they open their mouths and look like fools.
Now this what gets under my skin, when strangers and especially MY friends start saying, "Your daughters doesn't look like you,". So you're telling me she doesn't have my eyes and my color skin?! Please GTFOH with all that fcukery!
I know my beautiful girls look so much like their daddy but guess what, they have the Cambodians With Attitudes and sassiness so for them they act like me! But you just have to look pass by their looks. But I do think people (mainly females) enjoy to constantly point out the fact my kids looked just like their dad as if my egg didn't take part of his sperm. Truth be told, my kids do resembled me.
They can redundantly try (but failed) to drill into my head that my children had their daddy's eyes, nose, smile, lips, cheeks, eyelashes, etc... But In my opinion, if they can't overlook the features and admit both girls have a couple of my features, I consider that hating and bottom line, just to hurt my feelings.
Now why do they say such nonsense???
Maybe because they are determined to let me know that I didn't look like my children's mother were related to my husband, (sarcasm) I just assumed that they wanted to deny my involvement in the whole deal, or yet, they wish they were the one who carried the seed for nine full months! (My friends don't hv the best interest more like lack of maturity) Yet even today I think it's mean-hearted to say to a mother, "WoW your child doesn't look like you at all!" (Yeah kiss my bird!) People (general speaking) are so attuned to see what they want, when and how they want to see it. While talking about it is kind of rude most folks cannot help themselves when it comes to mothers and babies.(Especially th single folks, meaning they're not even a parent themselves but ill rant on my experience with that on another blog post lol)
Common Sense: If young children can figure out that it isn't necessary to ALWAYS point out the obvious, why can't other adults? So I guess its okay to tell a fat person and tell them that they are fat (in their FACE) and don't have the heart to care?!!! My point exactly.
So ignore and carry on! (Brushing my shoulders off)

E.L.F. Studio Tinted Moisturizer Review

Hi Dolls!


So I ordered some E.L.F. products a few months and finally tried their E.L.F. Studio Tinted Moisturizer in Sand because Summer is here and needed something light on my skin and not that heavy feeling of foundation because the last thing I want to experience is my foundation melting and that sticky feeling. They have very few color selections and I do need a darker shade, maybe in Almond. 




First of all, I have super sensitive skin, combination of dry and oily skin (T-zone). It has such a high SPF (20), and it also contains mineral oil, which isn't great for my skin because after using this, I did break out with a pimple here and there. You would think this product is worth it because it's from their Studio Line but it's not a winner in my beauty book. I wonder if it will make a difference if I buy the shade in Almond and give it another try, we will see... I have to remind myself that this product is light weight sheer to medium coverage and nothing like foundation. 


Maybe if you have perfect skin (because I don't) that just needs a little moisture you’d love this product.


Pros: Inexpensive $3.00usd, Local Target Stores, Nice Packaging, key ingredients such as Aloe, Cucumber and Vitamins A, C & E
Cons: Lack of color selections

My Summer Inspiration Images


Summer is here! What are your Summer Inspiration???








LACE-UP OXFORD HEELS

BLAZERS OVER ANIMAL PRINT

MIXED PRINTS

PURPLE SATIN PUMPS

MAXIS and LEATHER JACKETS




May Favorites

It's that time of the month to post my favorites for the month of May (I know I'm always late posting this).
This works like magic to conceal any new "pinky" pimples and blemishes.

 My baby's Hello Kitty Booties from H&M, cute right?!
 This product is still my all-time favorite, Physician's Formula Happy Boosters Blush


My Home-Made Pho

Vietnamese beef and noodle soup (pronounced "phuh")
Cambodian beef noodle soup ("ga thew" us Khmer folks love shrimps so we add shrimps to our dish).



Now I can't make it as great like my Moms home-made Pho but mine is also delicious and I receive lots of compliments from my sisters, friends and booski. When I make the soup I don't usually refrigerate it overnight nor do I add the beef bones for rich that flavor and I also don't like to add fish paste (ba hok in Khmer ba dek in Laos) because it breaks me out and I can't stand the awful smell (worse than fish sauce).

1. In a large pot, add 2 cans (28oz.) of Pho Bac Beef Broth and 7-10 cups of water to boil over medium-high heat. 2 packages of Won Ton Instant Soup Mix and 2 packages of Beef Flavor Broth Instant Noodle Soup Mix (Dragonfly- Brand). 1 Pho Spice Cube. 1package of Beef Meatballs which you can find it at the Asian store and sliced all the meatballs in half.






 2. In the meantime, heat a frying pan on medium-low heat with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and add a teaspoon of salt and black pepper, immediately add minced garlic and white onions. This is optional if you don't have fried garlic.
3. When the pot comes to a rolling boil, transfer the minced garlic and white onions and boil vigourously for 30 minutes. Then I cut the long stems of green onions and add it to the pot for aroma.


 4. You will also need a medium pot of water to cook your noodles (I use Pad Thai rice noodles) and meat of your choice: I use Beef tenders (thin steak slices) and shrimp.





 5. Serve and/or garnish with basil leaves, white onions (optional), lime wedges, cilantro, bean sprouts to enhance aroma.


 Add chili peppers, Hoisin sauce, Sriracha hot chili sauce, soy sauce, and fish sauce (optional) for taste.

Review: Broadway Nails Nail Dress Stick-on Wraps Nail Stickers

Broadway Nails Nail Dress Stick-on Wraps Nail Stickers


I made it two days only before I decided that they looked a little rough and that it was time for them to come off. Note: if you wash your hands a lot like I do, I recommend not to use these. They tend to look tacky and basically like paper on your nails, not a cute look.


Good thing, they do peel right off when you are finished with them, and if you have any residual adhesive left behind on your nails, a little nail polish remover will do the trick at removing it.


Each set contains 28 stickers, two sheets of 14 sizes, so they’ll fit all nail shapes. You’ll also receive a mini file with a black gritty side, and a pink buffing side.

THIS WEEK I'M

THIS WEEK I'M :



Obsessed with : drinking coffee at least 3X a day

Review: Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Cleanser


I had heard so many ravings and hype about the Clean & Clear Morning Burst line, and  that being Oil Free, I decided to give it a try.
I have been using Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Cleanser for the past two months now and I can honestly say, I love love love the scent (fruity) and the little beads (it burst not exfoliate "cleanse").
It helps my face feel fresh & does cleanse out some impurities. 
I do have a confession, I washed my face with this product more than 3X that it dries out my skin and I'm telling you, please only use this twice a day (day/night).

PROS: contains vitamin C and ginseng helps nourish skin while removing the dirt oil and impurities, won't clog pores, citrus fragrance, very affordable $5
CONS: if you are acne-prone it tend to dry out the skin.

Review: Maybelline SuperStay Concealer 24HR






Hi Dolls!
This concealer is a homerun for me! I picked up Medium Beige (40), although it looked a bit light in the bottle, and Deep Beige (50) was too dark (deep sigh) so I mix the two shades and it somewhat covers well under my eyes and the good news is, it stays all day and true to it's name... According to Maybelline website: Conceals imperfections, flaws and under-eye darkness for 24 hours 


The downfall is, if you don't prep and apply a primer you will end up with a cakey mess. The formula dries super fast and I'm such a turtle when applying my concealer so I suggest you have to blend it fast with your ring finger. In addition, I'm disappointed with the selection of colors. 
The shades are Ivory, Cream, Light, Medium Beige and Deep Beige.
