One Click

Just like Sephora, if you sign up for Ulta's rewards program, you can receive a free gift on your birthday. Back in July, my received her gift which was a full size of the Calvin Klein CK One Color Mascara in Show (true black). Which is valued at a price of $18.00.

Changing Leaves, Changing Hearts




I was thinking very hard about what my hook or introduction should be to present my announcement. Now, I realized that you all have lives (so why are you reading my blog?) and will be much more satisfied if I just cut to the chase.Up and til now, I was very convinced that I was going to major in business, communications to be exact, but I realized that I do not want to study that anymore.

It was only because I took a class on Economics this year and it is complicated. I am not quitting because the class is hard, but more of I have lost my interest in running a business. I have always been a leader type of person, who is able to take charge in drastic situations, but as I have gotten older I am starting to go-with-the-flow of life. I only did business because I did not want to do medicine or law. I have nothing against the two majors and I am not lazy to the point I am not wiling to put in the extra work to get the degree; more of that I am itching to do something artistic, something creative, something visionary.

Forever 21 Makeup Sponge | Beauty Blender Dupe?



























A few weeks ago I took my friend to the mall to help her choose some new clothing. I knew it was going to be a difficult trip when she showed up about forty minutes late without telling me (being late is in an Desi person's blood). If you are reading this, you know who you are, no shame. She was apologetic about the situation, but that is not the point of this post. I just think it was a funny story.

Balancing School and Blogging | #teenblogseries


























This is week seven of the #teenblogseries created by the wonderful Anouska and Beth. Today, I will be talking about school and blogging, which is one of my biggest weak spots in my life. I love blogging and I hate school, so you can probably figure out which one I rather do. With that being said this is not going to be a post that will give you tips on balancing school and blogging, but just a little place where we can converse about the ways you can attempt balancing the two because I have not mastered it >.< Again, I will try to share some experience and some empathetic advice even though I am not an expert.

#1 Blogspot is no Youtube // At some time in out blogging life we have imagined what it would be like to be a full-time blogger like Lily Pebbles or Temptalia. To be able to spend your days traveling the world to Paris, Tokyo, and New York; to be able to go backstage at BDBG, Alexander Wang, and Reem Acra; to be able to work with companies like Lancome, Charlotte Tilbury, and Jermey Scott; to be financially stable by doing one of the greatest thing on earth, blogging! The reality is that blogs are not popular anymore. Ever since YouTube came into power in 2005, no one really pays attention to blogs other than other bloggers or family/friends.  'But Laila, Zoella and Man Repellent are popular bloggers.' Yes they are, but Zoella got famous from Youtube and Man Repellent has a very distinct/HILARIOUS voice making her blog awesome.  

I do love Zoella, Sprinkle of G, and Essie Button a ton because they are just awesome people. They also brought a ton of readers to blogger because of their blog. Then again, through blogspot, it is hard to find related content like the Youtube 'Related Videos' in the sidebar. It basically feels like Google spends all their time on Youtube neglecting Blogspot.

The whole gist is that, right now, it is impossible to make a living from blogger unless you are active for like 90% of your time: Eat+Sleep+Blogging. When your a teenager, spending 6+ hours at school a day, it is impossible to that. So let's put our future 'Blogging for a living' dream on hold, together. I want to talk about this entire Youtube and Blogspot matter in another post.

Anyways, some tips regarding the actual subject of the post:
  • Write/edit/photograph all your posts on the weekend. ( non-example: not like me, who is writing this post at 8:15, on a Sunday night.
  • Write down your post ideas in a notebook.
    • Once you have an idea, think about it by doing chores/relaxing, not during homework or in class!
Lol, that is it for my advice! I hope the two miserable points helped, but I hope you read the entire post to see where I am coming from.


Thanks for reading-XOXO

Summertime Sadness


























Hello Everyone | With Summer coming to an end (depending where you live), it is time to say goodbye and tuck away some Summer favorites. One that has a special place and will make it's return next Summer in my heart is the Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Pink Pop. 

This lip gloss is in my definition of the perfect lipgloss. The consistency is not very sticky (some stickiness is expected from a lip gloss). It is a very nice wash of color, which gives off that Cheon Song Yi type of youthful lip. It does not make my lips feel dry, which is something I always looks for with a lip gloss. #lailaapproves

Sorry for being MIA for a week. With college quickly approaching in two years, I want to do my best to get the best grades as possible. I wrote a post about college, which you can read here, where I quickly embarrassed myself by spelling the word 'college' wrong. So, basically, I have been screwed from the start..lol.

Bottom Line: I would highly suggest checking out the Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in Pink Pop because its awesome and I am screwed for college.

Thanks for reading-XOXO
