A Joke

so i was surfing the net, and going thru some people's blog randomly, and i happen to bump into one where the owner posted this joke, and i couldn't help myself and just had to jack it cos i thought it was halirious....and dirty. hahaha. what a good way to take a break from studies.

but anywas, i hope you enjoy it. Life is short, spend it in laughters and smiles.
One day a little girl was watching cartoons when a porno came through. The little girl asked her mom "What are they doing?" The girls mom said "baking a cake."

Then the next day they were walking in the park and there were these people making out and the girl said "look mommy they are baking a cake!"

The next day the girl says "mommy you and daddy were baking a cake last night."

Her mom replied "how did you know?" The girl said "because I licked the icing off the sofa!"

so i hope everyone is having fun back in schoool, work, wherever life is taking you. I will go back to doing some biz now. There's a case i need to do :) the weekend in around the corner. Hopefully this week will be much better than the last.

A post Dedicated to my wife; Nancy

So may i warn you that this is a picture spam.

My long lost xx.wifey came to see me today, since she will be abandoned for 5 weeks, and decided to pay a visit because she had to drive her daddi down for a checkup with a specialist.

She has such long healthy hair that i had to destroy it with the Chi. hahaha. j/k. I wanted to experiment, because i don't have long hair like that right now, so i thought i curl her hair with soft curls, because she doesn't think tight curls would look good on her. *heart shape face, and volumious curls just emphasize the width of the face. So swirls looked cute on her.

Also i thought it would be a good way to test out the Chi. Overall there was steam coming from the straightener. THe hair didn't not tug on her HEALTHY hair and curling was a breeze. Though i did have some difficulty because the chi wasn't long enough in wide, so sometimes when i take wide chunks it would all slip out. The flat iron's grasp on the hair isn't very strong. You have to hold it realy tight. So that's a good and bad thing. Maybe thats why it doesn't tug on the hair. But overall, i'm loving this flat iron.

PLUS: This probbaly took 15-20 minutes. It always take me longer than that with SHORT HAIR and with a REAL CURLING IRON.

This is the result:
a before:


As you can see, i went a ltitle crazy taking pictures. I'm starting to think i should be a photographer. hahahaha jk.

So i also gave her a full makeover, because she dosn't wear make up, so i thought it'd be neat to experiment. I swear, i have never encounter anyone twitching as much as she does. You know when the person doesn't wear make up WHEN! hahaaha. we had alot of difficuly putting liquid eyelinear on her! hahaha. Curling her lashes was also dangerous. ..hahhaha..

"tell me if it hurts, cos i did it for my cousin and i clamped her skin off"
"it was an accident"
"Can i do it myself?"
"ok, go. WAIT! ur not aloud to see ur make up yet"
................her fate was in my hands...hahahaha

Everything went fine. i just couldn't do a good job curling her lashes because she kept moving and scared shitless of the curler. ..SIGHH.. hahahaha

I forgot to take a clear picture of her make up, so i will redo it onmyself and post a picture of the look another time, when i get a good pic of it.

p.s. Enjoy nguoi yeu. I hope you are happy now, since this post is basically dedicated to you and your volumious hair. hahaha.

Chi Farouk Straightener

Hey guys!

so i haven't been able to update as much as i would like to because of school. I think i would be able to update only on the weekends now. I love blogging because it keeps me away from homework , school and all the stress, and lets me do what i LIKE to do. Probably like you guys who are reading this blog and slacking from class, hmwk, or work! hahaha

Anywas, so almost 2 weeks ago, boyfriend got me a straightener. This straightener was retailed at $74 at beauty in USD. It could go up to 100+ plus, and he was able to get two BRAND NEW for 50 bucks off kijiji. let me repeat 50 BUCKS. 5 and 0. 50 BUCKS! hahaahah. There is a seller, selling it for 60bucks, but he bargained for 50 each since he had to get two. One for myself and one for his cousin.

Okay, so we all know that it could be fake, because it's online, you don't know right? so we both drove to the guy's place and looked at it before buying it. Things you should know when identifying if it's real or fake could be found on this page.

And from my observations i could honestly believe that this is authentic. Which is a pro and con for me. From all the raving that i have heard about the Chi, it was a total disappointment when i saw the Chi, because the plastic part (black part) looks dirt cheap. It's not what i expect from a flat iron that expensive. Its not BAD, it' s just i expect more. You can easly make marks on it, it's not terribly noticable, just only when light reflects on it. You have to realy stare at it to see it. It may not be a BIG thing, in fact you may not even notice anything, but i thought Chi would've been better than that. Also, i'm starting to understand why people say the Chi is not durable, from the looks of it, i think i have to take care of it. It's not a straightener you want to throw around the room. :) My conair has been quite abused, so this should be new routine for me. haahah

On the flip side, i do love the design of this straightener. It makes straightening very easy, cos you just split your hair clamp and pull it thru. There is some steam for some reason when i straighten it. It may be because my hair was still a little damp one time. Other than that, the results of the curl are okay. My hair didn't feel more soft or conditioned.

The reason i'm saying this is because, one time at vaughn mills there was a stand with a person selling straighteners, i forgot what the brand was called, but he was trying so hard to convince me to buy the striaghtener, but i didn't like how it looked. ( i know, i'm big on the look of a product) but it did give me incredibly soft hair. The straightener was said to be 100% ceramic, and restore the moisture back into the hair that's why when you straighten it, it feels soft. incredible soft! But it also made my hair look very flat in the end. (but this isn't the problem) it did fix my frizziness problem though. Now i kinda regret not getting it, after writting all of that. hahah. sry i do not remember the brand, but it looks like a Amika. I don't think that's the brand tho. It had colours - pink purple and black. MAKE sure you BARGAIN for this. Act like u don't like it so they try harder to convince u to buy it. They will lower the price, cos they are desperate for people to buy! hahaha. I'm not sure how much was it the original price, but he went down to 100 for me, because it old him there was another striaghtener i was intrested in getting that cost about 100ish. You might be able to go down to 90.

But anywas, back to the Chi. it definately is better than the conair. The conair dried my hair like crazy and it pulled on my hair all the time. So bf was on a mission to find me a flat iron, because i complain about my conair and the crazy damage that it has done to my hair alot. hahah. This straightener is cheaper than the conair that i got. I think the conair that i got was about 70-80 bucks! SHEESH, but there definately is a difference between the two. Lemme compare:

The Chi:

heats up very fast, within 3 seconds
Does not pull on your hair AT ALL
smooth edges for curling hair
delivers incredible heat
automatic heating
100% ceramic
light, and easy maunvers
long enough cord
STAYS in the way it was styled.

NOTE* sometimes there is vapours from straightening. i don't know if that's a good thing? if you know lv me a comment.

I use this straightener to quicky striaghten my hair in the morning because i have naturally messy wavy hair. It does a GREAT job at volumizing and i'll show you guys a pic of what i do in a bit.

Overall it's a great upgrade from the conair that i have been using, espcially for the price. This straightener might not be what your looking for if you have very thick and curly hair. You would probably need a bigger flattener so it covers more surface area. It's a great striaghtener though if you already have striaght hair and just wanna curl it sometimes. It's great for curling because it doesn't tug the hair so the curls come out very nicely and easily. it takes me less than 5 minutes to curl my hair in the front.

so here are some pics of me using the straightener to volumize my flat hair

1: section hair. Take 2/3 of the front hair and pull it forward. Secure with bobby pin. seperate horizontaly in the back. Vertically in the front.
2. Take a flat horizontal section. you will have Two on the side and one in the back.
3. clamp hair, and turn 360 degree pull out one inch and release
4. Do this for all 3 sections.
5. unclamp the hair in front and release another layer of hair. I do about 3 layers. Leave one layer for the later part.
6. repeat #3 & 4. keep working towards the hair closest to the forehead.

Note: ensure you have one last layer that will not be "curled" so that it could be flipped back to hide all the "styling" done. This layer will blend in with the volumized layers below, which would help make your volume appear natural and effortless.
7. Style bangs (if any) as desired.

Believe it or not, i only curled 2 section on each side.

A Tip on Curling Lashes

Since we are on the lashes topic. I just thought i'd share a tip that i've picked up a while back from a forum when it comes to curling your lashes. Alot of the time, i see girls curling their lashes and their lashes look bent and that just doesn't look pretty. You want your lashes to look effortless curled. So here's my tip.

An easy way to fix this is, curl your lashes the way you do, but curl it outwards. What i mean is. Start curling your lashes right near the root (ofcourse where you are most comfortable with) then move the curler outwards by a few milimeters and curl it again. This way you have a gradual curl, not just bent looking lashes. I do about three curls on each lash. Do as many as you need.

P.S. i have revised the post before this, so check it out :)

Emphasize your eyes

In my last haul, i have mentioned a 50% discount at Rexall on all mascara. I have not tried all of them, but i have been using NYX doll eye, and so far I am quite happy with it. I have to thank my friend, Cindy for recommending this product to me. This mascara is for volume, and to an extent it does do what it claims. There are several things I love about this about mascara. First of all, it holds my curls all day! My last mascara from Maybelline, did not do this. I’ve worn it from 6-am to 4pm, and the curls were still there. Maybe not as fabulous as it was at the start, but my lashes were definitely still curled.

here are some pictures after 10 hours at school. I have a bit of eyeshadow on.

Unlike the “Define a lash” this mascara does not smudge throughout the day. I hated it when I’d have smudged mascara at the bottom of my eyes, because I already have bags, and I don’t need it to be emphasized. Also, when you wash your face, it does not smudge as much as the Maybelline one. The Maybelline mascara “Define a lash” smudged dramatically when I washed my face, It was difficult to remove and it definitely gave me panda eyes. But with the “Doll Eyes”, there is minimum smudge, and removal of the mascara on my face is quick and easy with one swipe. “Define a Lash” caused me to tug on my eyes and this is a big NO! you don’t want premature wrinkling.

Another point that I love about this mascara is that it’s great for lengthening. Originally, Cindy said this mascara is great for under the eyes, and I can’t agree more. I don’t know too many Asians with a lot of bottom lashes, but this mascara CREATES, DARKEN and EMPHASIZE your bottom lashes. You might think you don’t have any, but this mascara is like magic, it will run thru hair that you thought didn’t exist there. I love it because if you into Japanese models with their long curled lashes and much like anime eyes, this is for you. People might even think you have fake lashes.

The only problem I have with this mascara is that it doesn’t fully separate my lashes that way that I like. I mean it does a good job, just not great. It does a good job separating short hair, like your bottom lashes, but it’s not great for the top lashes. I feel like when I apply the mascara my lashes look “messy” It doesn’t look uniform. And this makes my lashes appear flimsy. BUT this may be due to my natural lashes. Sometimes it appears messy and sometimes it doesn't. It also clumps a little bit, but if you try to brush it slowly you can minimize this problem.

This is a picture of my lashes without using any products.

I don't have long lashes, and my lashes are quite thin, and this mascara has created a difference. My lashes are longer, darker, and thicker.

Overall, it’s a good mascara if you don’t want to pay an arm or a leg for a good mascara. It may not be the best, but its definitely worth checking out. I will still be on a search for a good mascara, but this is definitely one that I recommend, if you have thick lashes and just need some lengthening. You can also try this mascara if you pair it up with a good thickening mascara, the results may be phenomenal. Though I have yet to try this. Otherwise, you can always use this mascara just for the bottom lashes. BTW. i believe it cost 5-6 bucks. But i got it during the sale so it was only like 2-3 bucks. :/

After using it for the first time I can definitely see the difference in my eyes. Mascara is a great tool for brightening and opening the eyes, and this will give the appearance of bigger eyes. With a great mascara, the results could be cRRAZYYY. Hahaha. I even got a compliment today from a random guy saying that I have pretty eyes. Now if you get a compliment like that, you know what to thank, because apparently half the guys out there don’t know what’s on a girls face, and what’s the difference. All they can tell is “something looks different”. hahaha

Here are pictures of the my lashes after i have just applied the mascara.

NOTE* i have revised the pictures, because i felt like the first post i did did not fully justify the lashes. So i redid it without using liquid eyelinear. Instead, i did not apply eyelinear at all. So that you can clearly see the length of the lashes. There may be some residue remaining from last night though.
Also, don't mind the pink eye, i was rubbing it, because it was bothering me

The eyelash curler, is a no brand i believe. I got it at shoppers.

FOTD Summery Look with MAC ARTIST Collection

Yesterday i asked my boyfriend, what colours i should do for my eyeshadow, and he said, Orange and Purple! He said he was eating jelly beans and those two colours were left in his hands. He thought it would be a nice match and would like me to make sure i mention that on my blog today. hahahaha. I know, who thinks of these things. But it was super cute. I realized that it's not really purple, instead pink. It's because Hepcat, is a magenta colour and for some reason i couldn't get it to pop so i used a pink bass, Red Velvet and it came out like such. Pink and orange still looks hot though. Really fun and summery.

The orange i used in this blend is from the Mac Artist Collection.- Off the Page. It is a MUST get! It's gorgeous! I've never liked orange, but this orange is love. The best part is that it's super pigmented also!
