JujuJabbers: rehab.

hello jujubes,

First off, I would like to remind you guys that challenge 3 is officially over and judged!  If you didn’t get yours in, I’m sorry, but me and Janine aren’t making any exceptions this time.  Read this whole post and at the end I will have more contest information.

I would also like to thank you all for 40+ subscribers.  I don’t know what I would do without this blog.  Actually, I do know; I would be moping around my house.

Also, I would like to let you guys know we have updated all our pages, so please check them out and comment (:

WARNING: THIS POST IS GOING TO BE VERY PICTURE HEAVY.  YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

I have a lot of nail polish related sections.  I know, I have a problem.  Rehab probably wouldn’t help though, hence the title.  But I’m happy with my problem, I’m perfectly fine (: I think…


Paradise ~ Coldplay

Verse: mypolishobsession: The More the Merrier

Refrain: Field Trip! – a look into my [boring] life

Chorus: Spring Nail Polish Picks

Verse Numero 2: Into the Smoky Twilight: a Tutorial

Bridge: Shmehs of the Day

 Verse:

When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach
So she ran away in her sleep
Dreamed of para- para- paradise
Para- para- paradise
Para- para- paradise
Every time she closed her eyes
Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh
When she was just a girl
She expected the world
But it flew away from her reach
And the bullets catch in her teeth

mypolishobsession: The More the Merrier

Review Number One: 

Ok, so last time I did an NOTD on this, and now I’m going to do a follow up review!

Essie First Dance + OPI Pros and Bronze:

For starters, lets start with how GORGEOUS these two look together? It’s like fire!  So gorgeous.

Ok, so, for First Dance.  Where do I begin? Oh yes, let’s start with the formula.  All I can say for that is AMAZING.  I could have just past with one coat, but I used a second coat to give it more, how do I say this, thickness on the nail?  Since the formula is opaque and thin, and I didn’t wear a base coat, I needed two coats to hide the imperfections on my nail.  Now for Pros and Bronze. The formula was pretty sheer, which is the reason I layered it over First Dance.  It is so freaking pretty though!  It adds this layer of golden and red small and medium microglitter that just makes any polish look amazing.  It took First Dance, a very classic, somewhat boring red, from blah to tahdah!

For wear, since I didn’t wear a base coat, it chipped quickly, as shown here:

5 days later, no top coat

This polish combo still does not repel me, however, because my nails seem to attract the chips, and 5 days is a really long time for my nails to stay chip-free.

Overall, I would really recommend trying OPI Pros and Bronze because it is so unique, and it really easy to find a cheaper drugstore red polish than a red orange and gold microglitter polish.

Refrain:

Life goes on
It gets so heavy
The wheel breaks the butterfly
Every tear, a waterfall
In the night, the stormy night
She closed her eyes
In the night, the stormy night
Away she’d fly.

Field Trip! – a look into my [boring] life:

So a few weeks ago we had a field trip for Chinese, and we went to this museum, and then to Chinatown!  Here are a few of the things we did:

The little clay warrior I made! I'm so asian

I really have no idea why this was in Chinatown, but yeah (:

I'm sexy and I know it.

My fortune

Me and J*'s rice village (:

RAWR!

Yeah, I didn’t take many pictures, and I mostly forget what happened, so this is a short section, but I just wanted to share these photos with you (:

Chorus:

And dreamed of para- para- paradise
Para- para- paradise
Para- para- paradise
Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh
She dreamed of para- para- paradise
Para- para- paradise
Para- para- paradise
Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh.

Spring Nail Polish Picks:

WARNING: PICTURE HEAVY

So, as you know, its March, which means it is not only spring, but my birthday is coming up near the end of the month.  Birthday post soon! (:

But it also means that its time to get out of your dark nail polish rut (even though I probably will still rock some navy blue and dark purple) and aim for the pastel and and not-so-vampy colors.

One big happy family

Let’s start with Essie!
Essie is known for their special pastel and spring time cremes, which is why they are getting their own category.  Leggo.

Essie Turquoise and Caicos

Sorry for orange-y lighting I forgot to change the white balance setting for this polish

Essie Turquoise and Caicos.  One of Essie’s cult favorites, its a perfect Tiffany box blue color, and it is perfect for spring!  The formula is a little streaky in the first coat, but after two coats it evens out to a nice shiny creme finish.  It also looks great on the toes as well (:

Spaghetti Straps is a really simple sheer, light baby pink that’s perfect for french manicures.  One coat will add a milky pink shine to you nails, and two coats will opaque coverage.  Its a very versatile polish and is amazing for lazy week nails when you don’t want nail polish to be too noticeable.

This  next polish, Lion Around from Essie, is again a pink color, but it really nice gold micro-shimmer that sets it apart from the rest.  Its a little warmer that Spaghetti Straps which makes it better for the warmer skin tone ladies (think Janine, tan), and it still looks good on the neutral skin people (me, pale but asian).  This is opaque in one coat but two coats evens out any ridges you may have.

Essie Da Bush is a creamy sage green that is very appropriate for the spring.  It dries to a shiny cream finish even without top coat, and the formula was pretty good!  The first coat was a little streaky but the second coat leveled everything out and it looked as if nothing streaky had ever happened!

2 coats of Lion Around, 2 coats of Da Bush, 3 coats of Spaghetti Straps, 2 coats of Turquoise and Caicos

Now going on to Sally Hansen…

 This first color from Sally Hansen is called Mint Sorbet, and its just a classic mint green color.  It would probably look extremely odd on warm skin tones, so tan chica’s beware!   Even on me it looks…how do I say this, chalky looking?  But for cool skin toned girls it would look amazing!  The formula is great, its opaque in two coats and the consistency isn’t too thick or thin.

Next up, we have Fuchsia Power, again from their Xtreme Wear line.  This color is amazing, sorry Janine [she hates pink].  It makes me look tan!  Tan!  Fuchsia Power is great for fingers and toes [actually its on my toes now with Nails Inc. Fitzroy Square layered over it].  The formula is also amazing, its completely opaque in one coat and can stay chip free for 4-5 days, which is amazing for me!

Now for Green With Envy, other green polishes should be jealous and envious of this polish.  Not only is it an awesome light green polish on the edge of neon, it also has an awesome formula!  One coat is opaque, but two coats evens out ridges and imperfections.  It also dries to a nice shiny creme finish even without top coat, which is always nice.

Sunkissed.  I really want to like this polish on me because it is a nice color, but orange just does not sit well with my skin!  It makes me look pink and I do NOT like that look on me haha.  The formula is also good like the others, opaque in 2 coats and has a shiny creme finish.

Here’s all of them swatched:

2 coats of each polish

OPI Rumples Wiggin’.  Well, where do I begin? Let me first start off with the fact this looks WHACK against my skin tone.  Now that we have that out of the way, I warn all warm skin tone girles to venture away!  This is not the polish for you, there are plenty more fish in the see!  The formula on this was OK, it was opaque in 3 coats, just average, especially for OPI.

Holiday Splendor from ColorClub.  You don’t even now how excited I was to see this at the store.  When PolishaHolic did a review on this polish, my face was literally like this :O.  Its just a gorgeous teal-green jelly packed with tons of holographic glitter.  I’ve done a review on this before, so check out that post here

Rage.  Oh my gosh guys, you don’t know how much of an obsession I have with this color.  Its a gold I can actually pull off! [technically its a rose gold, but we don’t need to get all technical].  Pretty much, its a rosy gold microglitter, and honestly, I do not know why I love this color.  I mean, the concept is so simple.  My fascination with it is quite odd.  In addition, the formula is great, opaque in 1 coat, even on the nail in 2.  Amazing polish, definitely a must buy.

Them swatcharooed:

A big trend this spring is also layering a chunky holographic glitter over your creme manicures, so I layered OPI’s Servin’ Up Sparkle on top of all these:

Essie Manicure:

Sally Hansen Manicure:

Misc. Manicure:

1 coat over Rumple's Wiggin' and Rage

Oh, and here’s a little manicure I did recently!  I used 2 polishes mentioned:

Essie Da Bush with Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen in Silver and OPI Servin' Up Sparkle over the silver

That’s my spring picks for 2012.  As a little disclaimer, these are just my picks and you don’t have to wear these, its just my opinion.

Verse Numero 2:

So lying underneath those stormy skies.
She said oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh.
I know the sun must set to rise.

Into the Smoky Twilight: A Tutorial:

So, I finally come back with the long awaited makeup tutorial.  I think my last tutorial was my first post on this blog!  Whoa, I’m pretty late.

MODELING SESH:

Step 1: Apply a skin tone primer/base to even out the skin tone of your lids.  I used Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden

Step 2: Using a sparkling charcoal liner, thickly line your upper lash line and smudge it out quickly before it sets.  I used e.l.f. Shimmer Eyeliner in Gunmetal and Sephora Double ended Smokey Eye brush (Sponge Side)

Step 3: Place a sparkling dark brown eyeshadow right over the base of your lid where you applied the eyeliner.  I used the darkest shade from the NARS Cordura Eyeshadow Duo with an e.l.f Studio Eye Contour Brush. Blend the the eyeshadow up to your crease to create a gradient affect.

Step 4: Apply a shimmery white eyeliner or eyeshadow to your inner corner to brighten your eyes.  I used NYX Slim Eye Pencil in White Lucent

Step 5: Curl you lashes and apply black mascara.  I used my Dior DiorShow Extase Mascara and my mom’s Shiseido Lash Curler

Step 6: For cheeks, use a cheek stain to give your cheeks natural color.  I used theBalm the Stainiac.

Step 7: Highlight your cheekbones, nose bridge, cupids bow, and forehead with you favorite powder highlighter.  I used Physician’s Formula Happy Booster Translucent Powder

Step 8: Finish off the look with a nude tinted lip balm or lipstick.  I resorted to the Revlon Lip Butter in Creme Brulee

Good Luck!

Bridge:

This could be para- para- paradise

Could be para- para- paradise
Whoa-oh-oh oh-oooh oh-oh-oh.
Oo-oo-oo, oo-oo-oo, oo-oo-oo

JujuJabbers: Swatch Scars

Hello Jujubes!

First, I just wanted to acknowledge the fact I have just relapsed into a tumblr addiction.  Its not healthy.

Today I’m doing a jumbo post, as promised in my last post, which was very short and kind of sad…:P.  Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful week!  I sure didn’t…so much stuff happened, I’m so glad it’s the weekend and I get to sleep in,  not have finals, and have some alone time with just me and my computer!

So, this week I have some makeup to haul!  This will probably be more of a haul/review since I’ve had time to use the products and stuff.  So, without further ado, leggo! (:

∞~Ready to Go~∞

Verse: polishrant:  the speechless horror

Refrain: the contest results.

Chorus: drugstore swatcharoo!: feat. maybelline, e.l.f, and revlon

Bridge:  the -otd’s

Verse:

You’ve got these little things
That you’ve been running from
You either love them or I guess you don’t
You’re such a pretty thing
To be running from anyone
A vision with nowhere to go

polishrant: a horror story

There once was a girl named Juju, who decided to paint her nails a pretty color named “Austentatious Turquoise” from OPI.  It was a mini polish, and because of her love of mini things, decided to try it because of its cute packaging even though she hadn’t heard the best reviews about it.  As she painted her nails, she noticed something horrid; low pigmentation. Very skeptical that OPI would make such a terribly thin and watery polish, she tried another coat to see if it would turn opaque.  Nothing.  Another coat maybe would help, she thought.  After five coats of horror, it looked presentable, though you could still see the nail line, and it had gotten unbearably goopy looking.  Not wanting to spend time removing it, and already being late for a dinner, she quickly put a coat of quick drying top coat on her left hand and rushed out the door.

I hope you guys enjoyed that little story segment.  Pretty clever, huh? Wait…no? Oh, ok….

the results:

day numero 1 left hand

  Sorries about the blurry pic, I’m still getting used to my new camera.  But this showed off the adorble mini bottle!  If you guys haven’t noticed, I’m a sucker for mini things.  AND jumbo sized things, like giant pocky!  BTW, this is my hand with topcoat!

day numero 2 left hand

Day 2.  As you can see, there is major tip wear already, and some chipping on the thumb.  However, this is good compared to…

day numero 4 right hand

No words.  Speechless.  Three words for every nail polish junkie; DO NOT BUY!!  The reviews on the full bottle are the same as mine, so its not just the mini size.

This color, though gorgeous, is very dupable [it is just a teal color], and you can probably find a drugstore dupe that has a better formula.  Do not waste your 8 bucks on this.  Go and get another OPI, like “Grape…Set…Match!” or “Servin’ Up Sparkle”.  Its not worth it!!

Refrain:

So tell me right now
You think you’re ready for it
I wanna know
Why you got me going
So let’s go
We’ll take it out of here
I think I’m ready to leap
I’m ready to live

the contest results

So, I’m pretty much going to paraphrase what janine said in the post here.

The Scores:

Cindy: 0/60

Alexa: 24/60

Evon: 25/60

Rain: 25/60

Cece: 35/60

Jill: 40/60

Arielle: 40/60

Avery: 48/60

Randy: 50/60

Lauren: 58/60

The next challenge is to make a playlist of 5 youtube videos/ youtubers that you think we will like.  There is no need for title.  You can’t use anything from Janine’s last post or the Motion Picture Entertainment page.

Good Luck!

Chorus:

I’m ready to go
(Get me out of my mind
Get me out of my mind)
I’m ready to go
(Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh)

 drugstore haul/swatcharoo!: feat. maybelline, e.l.f, and revlon

first up to bat: Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Pink Plum

I really like the formula; it is sheer, but it feels really nice on your skin, doesn’t make you feel greasy, and gives you a nice glowy flush.  Also, its super fun to play with; like playdough!

next up: e.l.f. blush and bronzing duo in blushed/bronzed

Personally, I think the blush is too sparkly.  However, I like the bronzer; it has a natural sheen and is pigmented.  Me likey 😀

here is our next special guest: TheBalm Time Balm

I LOVE this concealer; probably a HG (holy grail) product.  Its 10 hours of extra sleep in a pot, pretty much.  This goes on smoothly, doesn’t cake, and is super pigmented.  This is love  ♥

for our act of the night: Maybelline Volume Express One by One mascara

This is my second tube of this mascara, so I think that alone shows how much i like this mascara.  The formula isn’t too wet or too dry, and the wand is brilliant (:

and the last act to end the show: Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Plum

The Revlon Lip Butter; what can I say, I joined the band wagon.  All I can say is that it is totally worth the hype.  First off, I love the buttery consistency it has on my lips.  The color is also fabulous, it really is my lip color, but better [trust me, I hate that term], but it is truly amazing.

Bridge:

I think I’m ready I think
I know I’m ready I know
I think I’m ready I think
I know I’m ready I know
I think I’m ready I think
I know I’m ready I know
I think I’m ready I think

the -otd’s:

NOTD:

So right now, I’m currently wearing something that might be my new favorite nail combo/manicure.

You guys ready for the awesomeness?

Sorry for the crappy iSight quality

Its Essie’s First Dance [bright red jelly like creme] with OPI’s Pro’s and Bronze [gold, copper, and pink fleck glitter] on top.  MIND EXPLOSION.  I’m kind of in love with it.  AND, it been three days and I haven’t had a single chip, and no tip wear!  Even with no top coat.  I must say, I’m very impressed.

AOTD:

So, today’s app of the day is really mainstream.  Almost everyone knows what it is. Its called…

TEMPLE RUN

Oh, and I have relapsed into my addiction to tumblr.

QOTD:

Hope you guys enjoyed the post (: See you next time

With Love,

Juju

Technical Difficulties.

hola wordpress.

It’s Juju here.  Janine was supposed to post this week, but seeing that we had constant power outages last night, she couldn’t post yesterday.  I also found out that she got a virus and all her stuff was deleted off of her computer.  I have no idea if she’s posting today, but if she doesn’t I’m sorry for the inconsistency, I’m sure you all understand though, right?

If it’s possible, Janine will post sometime in the middle of the week, and I’ll post on Saturday, just like normal.  You don’t have to comment, but like this post so I know that you read it 😀

With Love,

Juju

Let’s prove the Mayans wrong

Hey Jujubes

So, Happy New Year WP!  Hope you’re New Year’s Eve was great.  Did you watch the Dick Clark’s Countdown to New Year?  I watch that pretty much every year and I wait until midnight, so the other countdown’s don’t intrigue me LOL.

Without further ado, LEGGO!

BTW, sorry about the short-ish post this week.  I have finals and have been studying like crazy, so i didn’t have much time for anything else but sitting with my textbooks.  I promise a jumbo post next time! 

~✮~The One that Got Away~✮~

Verse: iamobsessedwithnailpolish.com: NOTD/ Review!

Refrain: Contest Info/ The Key!

Chorus:  The Best of 2012

Bridge: QOTD

(BTW guys, I know this song so well & for so long that I typed out the lyrics…and me and Janine found this song BEFORE it got popular 😀 well janine did, and she told me before it became popular…now I’m confusing you all XP)

Verse:

Summer after highschool, when we first met

We’d make out in your mustang, to Radio Head

And on my 18th birthday

We got matching tattoos

 iamobsessedwithnailpolish.com: NOTD[s]/Review!:

This week’s edition: Color Club Holiday Splendor

This week, I decided to try out a new polish I recently bought at Bed Bath and Beyond from Color  Club.  One word: gorgeous.

In real life, its a really intense teal green jelly jam packed with holographic sparkles.  When it hits the light, BOOM!  Disco ball of rainbow.

Here's and out of focus shot to catch the holographic beauty of this polish.

 Let’s just take a moment to be in awe of the gorgeous sparkle of this polish in the photo above.  Is that not the most gorgeous thing you’ve ever seen?

On the formula, it has a nice consistency- not too thick, not too thin- and is opaque in two coats.  However, it tends to eat top coat, so if you don’t put two coats of clear polish on top, it will look flat and chip like a mother.  Despite its chip-tasticness, I really don’t mind; the color itself is the selling point of the polish for me, and wearing time is not a problem.  It would be nice if it lasted longer though, LOL.

Refrain

Used to steal your parent’s liqour

And climb to the roof

Talk about our future, like we had a clue

Never knew that one day, I’d be losing you

Contest Info/ The Key!:

So, if you guys didn’t see, we have a couple of new pages.

First there is “The Journey of P&P” .  That one’s pretty self explanatory.

Then we added “The Key”.  This one’s a little tricky.  If you can’t tell, when you click on the page, it’s password protected.  That’s because it’s special.  There, we post things such as exclusive pictures, some gossip, what we are actually thinking as people behind the computer screen.  This way, when we trust you enough and you are a very loyal subscriber, you will know us a little more personally.

Now for the “Contest” Page.  We are going to be holding a contest, with a $20 beauty/fashion related gift and the password to the key!  There will be 10 contestants with 2 people being eliminated at every challenge until we get the winner.  For more information on it, got to the page here.

Chorus:

But in another life, I would be your girl

Yeah we’d be full of promises

Be us against the world.

Yeah in another life, I would make you stay

URGENT!

There, that got your attention, huh?

Well, I need all my subscribers to advise me on some stuff.

So I have some polls.  Sorry for lack of posting from your P&P girls, just the holidays have eaten us up.  We will post soon, however, and for the new year we have a new posting schedule [again]

Every Saturday a post will be posted.  Makes it simple

Also I put up two new pages; “The Journey of P&P” and “The Key”.  Please check them out.  Do you like them?

Sorry for the short post, I’m not one for these, but this was urgent.

WEDNESDAY WORDIES: Walking in a Winter Wonderland [I know…its not a Wednesday…:P]

Hello my Jujubes,

So guess what?  Just guess! I’m going to be blogging it up on here!

I have a lot of time and a computer.  You know what that means, right?

THE 12 DAY OF BLOGMAS 😀

I will have a page just for it!  Evon is doing it on her Youtube channel as well, so I shall put both on that page.  By the time I post this I will have already posted it, but yeah!  I’m excited 😀

[Update 11/22: We have stopped updating the page due to lack of viewers/utter laziness of writers, but Evon is still doing Vlogmas on her beauty channel, so go check that out!  BTW, we will be doing a giant collaboration post for Christmas/New Years, which will be up soon!]

So today, as promised, will have two beauty parts!  And some polls 😀

BTW, can you guys wait for Christmas? I know I can’t!  (:

Verse: Polly Wolly Polls!

Verse Numero 2: Skincare Spectaculars and Haircare Hopefuls

Bridge:  A Rant on Fake People

Verse:

I have (I have) you breathing down my neck (breathing down my neck)
I don’t (don’t know) what you could possibly expect under this condition so
I’ll wait (I’ll wait) for the ambulance to come (ambulance to come)
Pick us up off the floor
What did you possibly expect under this condition so

Polly Wolly Polls:

So, as you can tell, I decorated P&P for the holiday season!  But I want your opinion…

Also, me and Janine have decided on a new posting schedule.  I will post every other Wednesday, Janine will post every other Saturday (the week I post, she won’t post), and Evon will post on any day that isn’t close to ours (at least 3-4 days apart) Do you guys like this? Or would your rather have something different?

Chorus:

Slow down.. this night’s a perfect shade of
Dark blue (dark blue)
Have you ever been alone in a crowded room when I’m here with you
I said the world could be burning (burning) down
Dark blue (dark blue)
Have you ever been alone in a crowded room well I’m here with you
I said the world could be burning ’til there’s nothing but dark blue..
Just dark blue

REVIEW- Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Hibiscus:

[Sorry for use of generic pics, I couldn’t get the pics from my camera onto my computer]

I just bought this lip balm a few days ago at Target for about 4 dollars.  After trying it out for the past few days, I have collected enough opinions and points about the product to do a review!

So, the lip balm comes in a cardboard tube that kind of  looks like an actual lip balm.  Even Janine thought it was…at first.  Until I broke the news to her.  I felt like I was her Santa wasn’t real….to which she responds “SANTA’S NOT REAL??!” (She knows Santa’s not real…BTW SHE’S RIGHT NEXT TO ME )

The lip balm itself is great, it’s very moisturizing and smooth.  However, I wished it had the normal Burt’s Bees smell than the sickly sweet flower smell.

It doesn’t go on very opaque, it’s very sheer. However, it gives a nice healthy look to the lips, which I really like.

Overall, I would recommend it to all you guys if you was a moisturizing lip balm with a nice moisturizing texture that gives the lips a healthy color

Verse Numero 2:

This flood (this flood) is slowly rising up swallowing the ground
Beneath my feet, Tell me how anybody thinks under this condition so
I’ll swim (I’ll swim) as the water rises up, the sun is sinking down
And now all I can see are the planets in a row
Suggesting it’s best that I slow down

Skincare Spectaculars and Haircare Hopefuls:

SKINCARE SPECTACULARS:

BEST DAY MOISTURIZER:

The Winner:

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion

This moisturizer is awesome!  I love how it sinks in quickly and adds moisture at the same time.  It doesn’t feel greasy, and is super refreshing when you wake up in the morning!

BEST NIGHT CREAM:

The Winner

Benefit B-right Total Moisture Cream

This is more of a heavy duty moisturizer for the night time.  It pretty much surges moisture into my skin, which is amazing for me since my skin refuses to not be dry usually!   I only have a mini size currently, but I am definitely going to buy the full size!

BEST CLEANSER:

The Winner:

L’oreal Go 360 Clean for Sensitive Skin

This does a great job of really throughly cleaning my skin and ridding my pores of oil and dirt.  It also doesn’t irritate my skin like most cleansers, and doesn’t completely dry out my already flaky face.

BEST EXFOLIATER:

The Winner

St.Ives Apricot Scrub – Acne Clearing

I love this scrub so so so much.  It helps me with my occasional breakouts, rubs away my dry skin, and makes my skin feel baby soft without me feeling like I’m using rocks to tear my skin off 😀

BEST LIPBALM:

CO Bigelow Rose Salve

This stuff is amazing for making chapped lips smooth and un-flaky.  It really sends moisture to your lips without feeling too greasy.

HAIRCARE HOPEFULS

Shampoo of the Moment:

Sexy Straight Hair Shampoo

This shampoo is okay.  I feel like I have to use it multiple times in one shower (by that I mean twice) to make my hair actually feel clean.  Overall, it’s not worth the 12 dollars I bought it for.

Conditioner of the Moment:

Nexxus Humectress Ultimate Moisturizing Conditioner:

I LOVE this conditioner.  It’s pretty much a life saver for my ends, because I’m growing it out so it tends to be dry.  I love love love it, and definitely recommend it!

Favorite Heat Protectant:

KQC Thermal Shine Heat Protectant:

I really like how it adds shine and protects my hair when I use heat.  I can’t really say much for this since I don’t know if it works or not :/ lol.

Favorite Hair Treatment:

Josie Maran Argan Oil:

Best freaking haircare thing I have ever, ever purchased.  It adds a beautiful shine to my hair, and helps my dry ends so, so much.

Bridge:

We were boxing
We were boxing the stars
We were boxing (we were boxing)
You were swinging for Mars
And then the water reached the West Coast
And took the power lines (the power lines)
And it was me and you (this could last forever)
And the whole town under water
There was nothing we could do
It was dark blue

A Rant on Fake People:

You know what makes me laugh?  When people are so threatened by you that they start throwing accusations in your face.

But you know what they say:  “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words cannot hurt me.”

But words can hurt my blog.  So, to protect my baby (my blog is practically my child; I love it to pieces!), I am going to respond.

I am practically in a fit of rage right now.  Minus the fit part, but I make up the physical part with the mental frustration.

I’m not going to say names.  You are just going to have to guess.

Why would I be threatened by a freaking biotch who can’t write her own posts and be truthful and real to her loyal subscribers?

I’m not going to explain myself to you.  You don’t deserve one.

Sorry about that guys.  I just have to address this certain someone.  They know who they are.

Well, that completes my post!  I hope you guys enjoyed!

With Love,

Juju
