Fiberwig Mascara

The mascara that I mentioned in my post before this one is called Fiberwig. I know, it's a really stupid sounding name but if you have short lashes like I do you might want to think about trying this out. The mascara has little fibers on the brush so its like paint-on falsies only way easier and way cheaper to apply. It only comes in black, unfortunately, but hey, whatever works! Just thought I would share. Don't worry this won't become a make-up corner lol...nothing is happening with my hair though so for now you'll have to settle for whatever comes to mind =)

Gonna start from the outside...

And work my way in! I realize how shallow this sounds so I guess I should explain myself! As of late I have not been feeling my usual beautiful hair needs to be retightened, I haven't been able to workout like I have wanted to, and I am in need of a therapeutic shopping spree. While I feel pretty good on the inside (most days) I feel that less when I look in the mirror. I feel like I should look different, somehow. I haven't quite figured out how, sorry to tell you. In any event, today I went to the mall to use my $20 gift card to Bath & Body Works that I got from my supervisor for Christmas (sweet gift, right?) and after spending $37 (I had to pony up the other $17 myself--for Moonlight Path though, and if you have ever smelled that you would know it was totally worth it) I ended up in Sephora.

I usually walk into Sephora and walk right out because the makeup lights make the store unbearably warm but I wasn't wearing a coat today because it was 65 degrees outside so I was able to hang around long enough to see what they had for me. I walked over to a giant poster of Kat Von D--of L.A. Ink (I'm an ink whore in case you didn't know...I have 6 tattoos)-- and saw that she had her own line of makeup. If you have ever seen the show you know that Kat, while tatt'd from head to toe is still very beautiful and feminine. I am going to guess and say its because she always has phenomenal makeup on. So after standing there for 15 minutes, I ended up with an eye shadow pallette with about 8 different colors in it, a pallette with a matte shadow on one side and the glittery version on the other, and a mascara with fibers that attach to your eyelashes to make them look long and luscious. The eye shadow is not by Kat, though. I spent a pretty penny in Sephora but I think it's good to treat yourself sometimes so I feel good about my purchases.

I've gone onto youtube and checked out some make-up tutorials for smokey eye and basic every day looks so that I can put my new makeup to good use. I will try to post pics of my look once I try it out but if i don't please don't be mad, I'm lazy lol. Just remind me and I will eventually post some pics for you to check out.

Oh yeah! While I was on youtube checking out a tutorial one of the girls doing the tutorial recommended a website called that has very reasonably priced makeup and makeup tools. I'll probably be spending more money very soon haha.

I'm a Rebel!

Soo I washed my hair today without braiding (twisting really) and banding! Yes, I know...gasp! My head was itching like crazy and I could make it snow just by running my fingers through it. I needed to get ALL of the snowflakes out and relieve myself of the itching so i washed my hair gently without braiding or banding. It felt absolutely amazing! I loved the way my hair felt wet and free. I won't be doing it again though until I get the OK from my consultant but it had to be done.

As I have mentioned I have some stubborn locks on the edges so those came out all the way but they would have whether I had braided/banded anyway since they don't fit in a braid. I'm not concerned at all...there's maybe 6 or 7 tiny locks that slipped. Everyone else seems to be in good condition! I'm sorry's my rebellious nature lol.

P.S. Happy Holidays! I'll have a post coming soon picturing all of my awesome gifts that my honey got me. He's an awesome gift giver!

Some Boring Updates

I don't have too much to blog about because not too much is going on. I ended the semester with an A and an A-, which I am pleased with. i have like 3 days off and then I began my winter intercession--Marital Therapy. The class is pretty interesting but it involves 3 all day Saturday classes and 3 weeks of classes on Mondays and Wednesdays from 7:30p-10:00p. A lot of the people in my class are either married or have been married so the conversation could probably go on forever...luckily, it doesn't.

I'm really looking forward to Christmas this year but I can't say that I am really in the spirit because we don't have a tree and I didn't decorate. I'm more excited because I got my boyfriend some really great gifts--an authentic Eagles jersey and the entire Dragon Ball GT series (yeah, he's a nerd). I managed not to go over $100 too, which is really something to celebrate about.

Remember the Blackberry Storm that I blogged about? Well, I still don't have it. I went to a store and the guy told me that they had sent all the phones back for software upgrades and that he would put me on the list to be called as soon as it comes in. He also said he would push my upgrade up so I could get the phone earlier. Well...I still don't have it and I'm only 9 days away from my upgrade so it looks like I'm going to have to wait anyway. It will be mine though...

About my hair...I've realized that I like my hair the most after a retightening. It looks really neat and always looks longer the first couple of days. The little locks on the edges WILL NOT stay in so after about a week of sleeping on them and fixing them in the morning they come out and I end up having to hide them under some of the longer, more stable locks. Not only that but the locks on the left side of my head are longer than the locks on the right side so sometimes I feel like my head looks lopsided. Right now I'm in just a really awkward stage with my hair where some days I love it and some days well, not so much.

And those are my updates...sorry I lead such a boring life!

Two Months to the Day

Today is my 2 month lock anniversary! I am just now really starting to love my's gotten thicker and longer and people are starting to notice. My boyfriend plays in my hair all the time and so do I. I am really enjoying seeing the different changes that they go through. It seems like something new happens every week. I'm excited to see what it will look like after my next retightening. The great thing about Sisterlocks is that there is always something to look forward to!

P.S. I found the lock that my consultant accidentally snipped. It's very well hidden and I'm sure will keep going since it didn't unravel haha.
