Give Away Winner & Updates.


The give away winner was Michelle! I have already emailed her and if she doesn't respond by May 30th, I will pick my second place winner Melissa or "MisforMelissax." Thank you all for entering this contest and I hope I can do other one soon!


It's been crazy for me lately. April was my birthday month, along with finals, and getting my life together. I'm twenty years old and it doesn't feel all that great. I have to say being a teenager wasn't all that special but it definitely had some perks and taught me so much about myself and the people around me. I just can't believe I basically fit the "old" category now, lol. Anyway, I did well on all of my finals...and I couldn't be more proud of myself. This summer I thought I could get right back into blogging, dance, work out, and just relax. When I came home from school I sat down and just organized when I would be graduating from college and what classes I have to take. I realized that the way my school assigned classes and how they offered them wasn't in my best interest. My University has the worst advisors who lie to you, who hold you back a few years, and who don't care about you. I also don't really like the location because being from New York I'm used to diversity, plain land, and the fast life. My school was in a rural hilly area with the worse roads on this planet. The state was pretty depressing and I was sick of the people there. On top of it all, I am nursing major. That means that only 1-22% of the people who apply into my program get in... In some schools only 4% of the upper classmen who apply to the program get in- it's tough.  So I started looking at what classes that I needed now in order for me transfer to other schools and be on the track with their program. Yes, *sigh* this means summer classes. I don't have enough time to enjoy my summer; I don't even catch up on any sleep. I thought to myself, if this school isn't working out for me then other will. So I started looking at schools that were in areas that I could see myself living in for maybe a year or two, or wouldn't mind staying. I looked for school's who had football teams, soccer teams, schools who have more than 30,000 undergraduate students attending (because I love large schools with pride). I really haven't had a lot of time to sit down and blog about skin care or beauty items because at this moment it isn't a priority for me. I still miss posting and blogging...getting involved in chats on Twitter. I hope you can understand that I can't post as often as I would like to. And thank you for your patience with me as well. I will update you all on what school that I'll be attending this Fall whenever I get my acceptance letter.

Tarte Eye Lash Curlers.




Let me just say this now, I love Tarte. Just like Nars, I find that their products never truly disappoint me and they're totally worth the money. I wanted a new eye lash curler because I was getting bored of my old one and I didn't really like it very much. I went to Sephora and thought I should give this baby a try since one of my good girlfriend told me how much she loved it. And I love it too.


My previous eye lash curler by Lancome wasn’t all that bad but I found it to be painful whenever I tried to give my lash a few good curls. Tarte’s Picture Perfect Eyelash curler, as advised, is an easy painless curling tool - especially for $15 dollars. The packing for this curler is gorgeous, a classic gold look with purple handles and rubber. I think the handles are the best feature for this curler; it makes it a lot easier to hold because I found my other curler to hurt or simply just be a burden for me. No more drama with getting my fingers caught in the handles! Tarte’s curler is small size, so I put it in my school bag on those days where I woke up too late. The size of the curler is also perfect for me because it’s painless and fits my eye shape perfectly. I find that this eye lash curler curls upwards and fits the average eye size/shape. I would highly recommend this eye lash curler. If you have asian eyes, you may want to check how this may suit you in stores instead of buying it online.
