I laugh…

30 08 2009

So after I posted my first blog about how I felt when ppl send me messages on myyearbook.com, I’ve been getting even more messages, comments & what not about my blog. There have been 3 kinds of messages:

1) The ones that comment about how they like my blog & it’s about damn time someone on here posted it. Or how I seem wise, insightful & what not.

2) The ones where ppl obviously didn’t read my blog to begin with b/c I still get them damn messages saying: “Whassup sexy.” “What’s good ma?” I understand if you don’t like to read, but why be online or on my profile or even adding me if you don’t like to read?

3) This is my favorite ones: The fuckin assholes that think it’s funny mock my blog & PURPOSELY type: “Hey mamas, what it dew witchu?” Really though? You think I’m actually gong to respond back to those messages? I know I’m responding back right now, but I will not respond back in separate messages.

Oh!! It’s funny when ppl message me with this: “So, what’s your name?”
WOW… aren’t we smart? It says it in my handle, you just take out the 4 H’s and you’re set with my name. OH!!! And the ppl that are telling me that they like the fact that I wrote the blog 7 I opened up their eyes to something real, YET they criticize the way I type & my usage of words. Maybe you just don’t get the way I use words? IDK, whatever it is, it makes me laugh. Oh an yes, I really do type like this when I message people, and I do talk like the way I type. If you’ve ever sent me a message/IM where I would respond, you’d know that I type like this: “all proper & what not”.

Okay I think that’s enough rambling for now. Leave comments, because I know I have offended a few of you. It wasn’t my intention to, but someone had to tell you.





I just need to vent & be real with y’all….

19 08 2009

So, I made an acct on myyearbook.com just to make friends, and I think I have. I mean I don’t talk to many of them on the site, but the people that I’ve conversed with are pretty chill. But I think the only reason why people send a friend request or even talk to me is b/c of the way I look. And trust me, I don’t look like I do in my photos all the time. I don’t mean to sound condescending or conceited or anything within those two terms, so please, don’t think I am.

I’ve gotten a few comments from people saying (along these lines): “Damn ma, you’re hot,” “Hey, Beautiful,” or my favorite: “What it do, sexy.” BUT of course, not in the correct form of English. (Not hating on anyone’s grammar or anything, it’s just a pet peeve of mine.) ANYWAY…

There’s a few things wrong w/ those three lines/greetings there.
1) PLEASE don’t call me these things: Ma, Mama, Mami, Shawty, Boo, Babe, Baby, etc. — I am NOT your mom or ANYONE’s mom, for that matter. Yes, I’m short, but that’s b/c height isn’t a strong gene in my family. And that whole baby/boo thing? Um… HOW OLD ARE WE? Yea, that’s what I thought.
2) Sexy, Beautiful, Hot, etc. — I’m nowhere NEAR the typical media/society’s definition of those words. BUT I do think I’m beautiful in my own way. I mean everyone has their own definition of being beautiful, sexy, hot, gorgeous, etc. To me, what makes a person beautiful is their heart. You can be the prettiest girl or most handsome guy EVER to be in existance, but how is your heart? How’s your character? Your disposition? People are born young & grow old; physical beauty can only last for so long, but what lives on forever is their heart. It may pass on, but the spirit of the heart lives on forever. What makes the heart beautiful is to love & to give. I’ve always believed in giving & kindness, but don’t take advantage of those traits of mine. Once you do, I will be the last person that you’d ever want to come in contact with.
3) “What it do/dew?” — What does what do? And where’s the dew? Like seriously, think about what you say & how you say it to a person. Because even though actions speak louder than words, it’s the things you say that the actions follow. Do you know what I’m saying? If you’re meeting me for the first time & you greet me that way, I will reply like this: “What does what do? My hair tie?” A good, “Hi, how are you?” greeting would be GREAT!

I don’t know why I wrote this blog, but I just felt like venting out a little bit. Plus, I didn’t want to write the whole thing & erase my thoughts. I’ve always been the type to hold everything in & let it bottle up inside until that one day where I just explode & lash out on EVERYONE. That’s when I don’t care about what I say to people or if it hurts their feelings or what not. But I hope you enjoyed reading my ramblings. 😀





Life changing development.

21 06 2009

Laying here at 2 AM thinking about everything I want to say & everything that I’ve been doing lately… I never thought I’d ever find the time to do so.  I don’t even know where to begin with this blog. Have you ever had someone introduce you to something new & they pretty much guaranteed that it was going to be life changing for reals? I have, and it’s happening. I don’t even know that it’s happening, but man… Let’s just say that I haven’t opened up to someone like this in the LONGEST time. And man.. I cried.

About a month ago, I was approached by someone that I never thought I’d ever hear from again. She hit me up on AIM asking how I was doing & what not. I was thinking to myself: “What the hell does she want? But I’m glad she took the initiative to do so, otherwise I wouldn’t have.” kind of thing… Well, she picked me up to get some Starbucks & we talked about EVERYTHING that we both needed to get off our chest. It was one of those long awaited type things. And also, one of those misunderstanding type things. Anyway…

I asked her, “You’re so different now. What are you doing? Your view on life is totally different than it used to be. Tell me your secret.” I’m SO GLAD I had asked, because then I never would’ve gotten an answer. Basically, she introduced me to the company she works for. And I also asked her, “Is your company looking for new people.” SO GLAD I DID THAT, as well.  I don’t think I could thank her enough for actually introducing me to the company. It’s surely has changed my life in the past 3 weeks.

I’ve learned so many things in life in these past 3 weeks, that I’ve never really thought about in the past almost 26 years of my life. I’ve never met so many people that don’t see you for what you’ve done in the past, but what you can do & accomplish in the future. They really are my family outside of my family. They see things in me that I’ve never been able to see in myself. Their belief & faith in me is what is pushing me to work harder than I’ve ever worked in my life. I’ve never had that kind of support, ever & I appreciate EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM for that. For the past week, I’ve been thanking GOD for every single one of them & I can’t let myself down. If I do, I let them down.

Thank you NEXT EVOLUTION 1 – SPARTANS – ESPECIALLY LEGENDZ





Facial day…

13 05 2009

I’ve officially declared Wednesdays as being my Homemade Facial Day.

Well the only things that’s homemade is the exfoliating mask & toner.
I’ve been using the exfoliating mask for about 2 weeks now, and I like it. I haven’t really seen a difference with it, but it makes my face feel smooth. It’s the Aspirin, Honey & Water mask. It’s worked really well by getting dead skin off my face, my nose especially.

Whenever I get ANY sun exposure on my nose, even if I put sunscreen on it, the next day, my nose starts to peel. Like it got sun burnt or something… IDK! But yeah, the only thing that will help “cure” my so-called burnt nose is the aspirin, honey & water exfoliating mask. I’ll do better review of it later.

The newest thing I’ve tried is a facial toner made of vegetable oil, lemon juice & honey. It’s alright…. I’ll do a better review of that later, as well.





It’s FINALLY here!!!

5 05 2009

My 120!! It’s here!! I’m sooo excited!! I slept over Shana’s place on Sunday night b/c we were going to bleach my hair the next morning. While we were watching UNSOLVED MYSTERIES on TV, the doorbell rang.. 2x. We were like, “Who the hell is that?” When Shana went to get the door, it was the mail man. I wasn’t there when she signed for the package. As soon as she shut the door, she shouted:
“Hey, Paula! Guess what came in the mail!!”
I literally jumped up & scream, “OUR 120’s?”

Sure enough, in a green bulky envelope that look like it’s contains drugs, were both of our 120s, & 2 free gift sets.

We were uber excited that we both opened our palettes & did a little swatching. They’re absolutely AMAZING! I mean, I knew they were going to be really pigmented because I’ve watched/read a few reviews on them online. But they’re even better in person!! I wanted to “play” with the colors last night while Shana was raiding on WoW, but I honestly didn’t know where to start.

As soon as I got home last night, I took my 120 palette out & I got on youtube. I said to myself, “Hey! I might as well make another entry for Angee’s contest!!” So I did. You can view a preview picture here.

I’m uploading the video right now as I’m typing this. If you subscribe to my youtube channel, then you’ll be able to check it out. Also, if you follow me on Twitter, I’ll tweet a link to the video :]

I was kind of disappointed in some of the colors of the 120. 95% of them were very pigmented, the other 5% of them weren’t. I had to do a few swipes to get color to show on my arm for the swatches. So here they are!!

All swatches were applied on NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in MILK as a base.





I gave in…

3 05 2009

So, I posted a couple makeup tutorials on youtube. I told myself that I wouldn’t give into that only because there’s a whole bunch of girls out there that post videos on how they apply their makeup. My first video was actually for a contest entry that Elle (Allthatglitters21) was holding. You can watch the video here.

With the support & encouragement from friends & MUGS, I decided to post another video here. I’m slowly getting the courage to post more videos and what not.

Someone asked me, “Why don’t you talk in your videos?”

I replied with, “Because I stutter a lot & I don’t have a cool greeting. I don’t want to be boring & say, “Hey girls!” Or even have a high pitched voice.” That’s just not me. Once I get into talking & what not, I’ll eventually do that. Plus, it’s hard to do when I’m filming around 11pm at night & what not.

Oh! I’ve also gotten msg`s in my inbox saying: “You’re just entering to win free stuff!!” FYI – I’m not. I entered cuz I’m a competitive person & I like to think outside the box when I enter contests. Obviously those people who sent me those msg`s are cowards for not posting it as a comment :]

I hope you guys enjoy my videos!! And if you’d like to see me do a look, post a comment here or on youtube & let me know what you’d like to see!!
