Yorom


About a few weeks ago I was contacted by the Born Pretty Store asking me to do a product review. I was able to pick two items: a lip gloss (post up later this week) and these Yorom 2 in 1 Crystal Bright Lipstick and Eyeshadow Pencils.  They retail for $1.29 and come in a whooping twenty colors.

Earning Your Wings


Applying winged eyeliner has to be one of the hardest makeup techniques known to man. Some people can apply eyeliner in one swipe, while others have to dedicate more than five minutes to achieve their perfect cat-eye. No matter the situation, I will be giving you # tips to achieve fool-proof wings.

Never Forget.


























Today is not a beauty or fashion post, but just something that I need to get off my chest. I wrote this post earlier, but my head was going crazy making the post an absolute mess >.<

If you do not live in the US or have not been updated on the new about Mike Brown and Officer Darren Wilson, click here because it will take forever to explain. Recently, 12 year-old Tamir Rice was killed by cops and if you want to hear more about that story click here.

I did not feel like writing about anything else because this is something that is very unsettling in the US. Many people, including me, are very upset to see how a young boy and young man were treated by police. The Tamir Rice story is still unfolding, but the Mike Brown case has been going on since August.

The whole idea around the Mike Brown case is basically the system vs the people. The government is meeting their match because now, everyone speaking out against Darren Wilson, who literally retired from all the cash (500k +) he got from donations. He literally got paid for killing someone. Which makes me disappointed in society.

The whole case was unfair the minute when Darren Wilson shot Mike Brown six times to the second when CSI did not take photos of the body.  I think the jurors made the wrong decision by not indicting Darren Wilson and letting him go easily. I think police are way in over their heads when they started throwing tear gas at civilians. I don't think it was right for people to destroy property and businesses, but that not make it ok for police to use lethal force on civilians.

In my opinion, Darren Wilson is a coward who hid behind his gun. They were both very big people and I think Darren Wilson should of been trained to handle hand-to-hand combat with weaponless Mike Brown. You really don't have to agree with me, it is just my opinion.

The whole idea of this post is to say don't let Mike, Tamir, Trayvon, and countless others die as trampled flowers. The system is messed up and others, including me, want to change that.  Keep your voice strong and don't let other people scare you into changing your opinion because there are thousands of people world wide willing to back you up. 

Thanks for reading - XOXO

Happy Monday everyone! I have been really loving my new blogging schedule lately which is posting on Monday and Thursday! To get straight to the point, I have not done my nails for months which has caused me to return to my old habit of biting my nails from stress.
