I'm going on Vacation

Nothing glamorous but a nice vacation with my boyfriend up North. It'll be nice to have some quiet time between us. I brought 3 BIG suitcases and I get told we wont need all that clothes. Well bb you never know. Now it's time to check Perez and get ready before I go. We're leaving the computers and only checking in on our cells ( because my mom is a freak and even though I'm out of the house you still gotta check in with your momma!)
No twitter myspace blogger or perez till I come home.
I think I can do it :)
Have a Wonderful week and Bless You all
I'll have pictures when I return.
Lots of love.

How many of you take pictures of yourselves when your sooo bored? If your like me you take hundreds ahhaa. I'm home and bored and that combination makes me whip out my camera and put my best face forward.

Im bringing sexy scratch that braces back.

Who's that cute girl in the mirror?
My brother says i look like a whiter green eyed kim kardashian. I think the ONLY thing we have in common is a huge ass lol

Smashbox Lipgloss Sexy and Melt

Description: Smooth & moisturizing Gives volumizing effect Imparts shine to your lips Highlights their shapes Lips appear supple & succulent Wear alone or over lipstick for more lacquered look

I am such a fan of these lipglosses. I got 1 in Melt and 1 in Sexy.Melt is a dark coral color with silver shimmer but it's more pigmented then Sexy. Sexy is a sheer berry color with a golden shimmer . Melt would look good over NYX's Pumkin Pie It's a peachy orange and the 2 would be gorge together! Sexy would look good over a neutral maybe over HUE my fave color from mac's lipsticks or a dramatic pink like NYX's Louisiana. The texture is so creamy and they don't have a taste so you wont have a funky look on your face everytime you lick your lips. I've seen these for $15.00 a piece and even $23.00 a piece and I got mine for are you ready for this dah dah dah $4.55 for both WITH SHIPPING!! You gotta love Ebay.

Kourtney Kardashian is Preggers.

I am such a loser and I just got my E breaking news alert that Kourtney K is having a baybee!! here is the story from Enews

Kourtney Kardashian is going to be a mom!

Sources confirm the E! reality star is pregnant with her first child.

Ms. K isn't revealing too much right now. She's keeping mum on the daddy's identity and how far along she is.

But the happy news definitely sheds light on some of the things she told me yesterday during my chat with her sister Khloé...

Kourt, 30, refused to say if she and ex-boyfriend Scott Disick are back together. "You're going to have to see on the show," she said, referring to Kourtney and Khloe take Miami which debuts this Sunday.

Funny enough, the big question these days has been whether Kourtney has switched teams because of a kiss she shared with her bisexual friend Jackie during shooting of said reality show.

"I feel like I'm definitely into men," she said. She's certainly proven that now.

Congrats !

Maybelline Colorsensational Fall In Love With Color all over again.

I just got my cosmopolitan in the mail and right when i open it up i see Maybelline colorsensational and my jaw dropped to the floor and had to run upstairs to blog. The colors are not your average drug store colors the reds mauves and browns they "reinvented" the lipstick saying

"Fall in love with color all over again Crisper Richer Color from pure pigments Creamier Feel from nourishing honey nectar. Lipcolor so rich, so's sensational"

The new lipsticks come in 48 shades. Pinks Plums Reds and Naturals. They've even made a line of lipliners and lipgloss to go with your new lipstick. If you go to the maybeline website they give you the color sensational shade finder which helps you find the shade perfect for you! I am so digging this red on the model above the color is red revival #654 and the nude below wow i have never seen a drugstore nude like the picture below. They totally did an amazing job reinventing their lipsticks and making colors people will actually want to wear. I am about to go get it right now the color below is Nearly There #205.
so again check out these colors available at your nearest drugstore.

Enjoy bbs

Kim Kardashian Blonde

I totally love love love Kim K's new do.
The blonde suits her nicely.
what do you think..?

Perez Says: WTF

This story is courtesy It's so ridiculous and people wonder why the kids on Maury want babies at 13!

Hey kids! Are you looking for a toy that is sure to give you false impressions of motherhood and ultimately persuade you into having children at a very young age?
Then you'll want your parents to pick up Bebe Gloton, the world's first breast-feeding doll. That's right! It's a doll that cries to suck on the young nips of children who are still unaware what their nips are for.
Well, now they'll know!
A Spanish toymaker invented this ingenious plaything, which cries when it is "hungry" and is only satisfied when it gets a drink from the special halter top "nursing bra" that kids can strap on to simulate breast-feeding. It even makes sucking noises!!!
Doesn't this sound fun?
What happened to serving our dolls tea or having Barbie run stark naked through the house because the clothes were too hard to get back on once taken off? Guess, we're way beyond that these days!
Some critics say that this is positive plaything, promoting the "norm" in child feeding, rather than artificial means of the bottle. Some, more sane people, recognize that this might "speed up maternal urges" and equate the doll to introducing "sex ed in first grade."
We couldn't agree more with the latter!
How do U feel about the breast-feeding baby doll?

What is beauty?

What is beauty? according to Websters dictionary beauty is " the quality or aggregate of qualities in a person or thing that gives pleasure to the senses or pleasurably exalts the mind or spirit: loveliness.
Whether it's forcing your butt and thighs to fit into a pair of jeans that are a size too small or wearing 5 inch stilletos that are about to make your feet fall off. Us women all want one thing. To be beautiful. Everyday the media throws models,actresses, and Miss Universes in our faces and i think women lose sight of what they really think is beautiful and try to live up to what the media projects as beauty. I recently read this story of a girl who is dying and before she dies she wants to have plastic surgery to look like Demi Moore and she's so pretty! It's sad very very sad. I think only YOU can truly make yourself happy and whether it's buying makeup or getting a mani pedi don't try to be anyone but yourself. Taking a look inspired by your favorite actress is okay but you should never try to be them. Confidence is key. Be confident Be Happy Be You.You are beautiful just the way your are.

queen approved.

An American Crime

A couple months ago while at my parent's house I sat down with my mom to watch a movie called An American Crime Starring Catherine Keener and Ellen Page (Juno). Unfortunately I was unable to finish the movie and it slipped into the back of my mind until flipping through my movie channels last night I saw the title and decided to sit down with my boyfriend and watch it. I immediately was hooked again as i watched the sad but true story of Sylvia Likens. It takes place in the 1960's Sylvia's parents work at a carnival and leave her andf her sister Jenny in the care of a Gertie Baniszewski shortly after sylvia arrives she is tortured by gertie her kids and neighborhood kids who like to beat her, burn her, mutilate her and torture herall for entertainment. Sylvia eventually succumbs to her injuries and dies and little justice is done to those who hurt her including Gertie's children. This is the saddest movie I have ever seen. Ellen Page gives an amazing performance and it breaks your heart to imagine the pain this poor young girl must have felt. This is a movie everyone should definitely see. It shows you just how evil some people can be and I highly recommend this movie.
HERE is this link to the IMBD movie database
and HERE is the link to the Real True Story Of Sylvia Likens and the horrible pain she endured.
