So long 2008, New Years Resolution.

New years! 2008 was a great year. Finding myself more on who I am or what I want to become. President Obama was elected and now those racial barriers of many years are being broken. My grandpa cried that night of the election, tears of joy. Saying you really can become ANYTHING, even the president. Its crazy right? Just think at where we were when we were first brought (dragged) to America? We were building America and now we've finally got to run it too. He's the first black and man of color president. I've had great losses of close people I knew, but it was their time to go and just have to understand that their gone because the Lord sad it was time to come home.

* Better relationship with God, I really want to be closer to him.
* Stay fit, flatter abs
* Good grades, I need better study habits!
* Go to bed earlier
* Save money
* Spend more time with people I care about
* Do more things with the church
* Learn to sew

Go to New Years eve party with family.

The Queen Of Great Finds!

I'm the QUEEN of good prices! Well the day after Christmas I went with a good friend to the Modesto Mall to forever 21 and ran into the cutest shades ever! They are Ray Ban inspired shades, I always wanted a pair of these badly! Know what I liked even better? The price, $5.80 each, doesn't get any better than that, especially when the sunglasses man was trying to sale ones similar to these for 10-14 dollars. :] Hollla!


Who said just because you have an afro means your hair is bad or nappy?
Rock on my soul brothas and sistas! :] Afro beauty= Afro Pride.

Poppy Polish N.Y.C.

N.Y.C nail polish is a fav of mine besides O.P.I. I like it also because its for a good price and still good quality! With my Christmas Target gift card I bought these, Lime green, orange, Pink, and a Purple type color you can't really tell with this crappy photo! I'll post photos with them on. I'm currently wearing a deep blue polish my Ma has had for years, it was thick about to dry out. Does anyone have those good polishes that have a lot left and clumped? Heres a Tip my mammi gave me: add a bit of nail polish remover into the polish bottle and shake, test it out and if still thick apply more remover. I'm sticking by it because I do that all the time to my mega thick polish bottles!

Make-up Box!

So its been FOREVER that I've wanted a makeup box! Its just something about them...
Makes you feel like a pro with it! I got it at target for $20 but maybe I should have got a biggwer one for $30 but its lovely for a first one!
I needed to brake this baby in, so I took all my makeup from my makeup bag, and went and bought some new Cosmetics as well.
I bought tons of eye liner, liquid eyeliner, and lip gloss.
Then my mammi yes thats how I spell it when its towards my "mother" or Ma got me brown mascara, eyeliner, lip liner, and eye shadows. I have like 5 black eye liners!
