Christmas Celebration

9:39 PM Katherine H 4 Comments

Caution: PICTURE HEAVY


The reason why I LOVE CHRISTMAS is self explanatory below. The best part Of Christmas is not so much presents, it's more of the joy that I get from the decorations!


My Christmas was so much fun, I spend it with my mom, dad, and cousin. We all just decided to take it easy and be home and just relax and spend time with one another, because during the year we almost never have time to, if we do then it's only for little while.


Below you will see pictures from Christmas Eve, Christmas day and night! I will admit on Christmas night my photography love side came out, and I couldn't stop taking pictures of the gorgeous decorations at a little town I took my family to see and enjoy. Tanks to the weather, it was perfect. (REMEMBER IT'S WINTER TIME)



December 24,2009 - Christmas Eve

Photobucket

If you follow me on Twitter then you probably seen my TwitPic of how much it snowed in NYC like 4 days ago! When I go to my moms house I was surprised that there were no card in the front of the house (there are always at least one car). When I finally got out the car I and walked to look for the cars I seen this. The Car was all covered in snow, little of it was picking out.

Photobucket

I love the birds they are so gorgeous, its really relaxing to watch them.

Photobucket

The view from the kitchen window, I love watching birds fly up to the feeder and eat!

( Dear GIDIVA, WHY DO YOU HAVE TO BE SO TASTY AND EXPENSIVE?)

Photobucket

I don't know about you guys, but I find this so fancy and cute

Photobucket

People decorate almost everything they can for Christmas

Photobucket

So what? I'll be a copy cat. Next Christmas my dresser will look something like this one, this is why I had to take a picture to remember later.

Photobucket

Practicing for now with my digital camera, getting ready for the professional!

Photobucket

I think I am getting better and better with every picture I take

Photobucket

To bad Christmas is not all year long! But yet I know I will be so tired of them decorations really soon!

Photobucket

We found one restorant that was open on Chritmas night that we went to eat, but didn't because they didnt have space available. We didnt want to wait. But I still took some pictures.

Photobucket

Their Tree, isn't it gorgeous?

New Hair Cut And NYC Macy's Decorations

6:51 PM Katherine H 1 Comments

It was time for a change and time to visit Herald Square in NY


I love to change my looks a little time. (Nothing dramatic like going Black from Dirty Blond)
Since Christmas is like 4 days away, I decided to treat myself to relaxing hair cut. Well it wasn't was so relaxing because I am so picky about my hair (NOT ONLY HAIR, I AM PICKY ABOUT EVERYTHING) I was alert and looking at what my lovely hair stylist was doing, even though she is amazing at what she does. She is so passionate about hair, it's AMAZING to watch.

I LOVE my hair, even though it's shorter then it was before, but I am loving my layers!

Photobucket

Sorry about the cleavage area, its HARD to hide them!

Flash Back: How To Keep Your Brush Role Clean.

12:13 AM Katherine H 0 Comments

Let's go back in time

Back in June I believe, I came up with an idea on how to keep my brush role from SIGMA clean all the time. Since I do put dirty brushes there after i use them, they leave a spot after them
(Especially the liquid foundation brush) I brainstormed some ideas and came up with one that i explain below!

Enjoy, I would love to read your toughs on my idea.



P.S. I miss my TAN so much!

Here Comes The SNOW....

10:05 PM Katherine H 1 Comments

It's that time of the year, to see the streets covered in white (sheets)

I love SNOW.

But I LOVE it more when its on my day off! Today i was blessed to enjoy it to the fullest. I was suppose to go visit my mom, but since the weather channel said " If you can stay home, STAY HOME" I had no choice, but to stay home ( I didn't want my mom to worry while I'll on the road). But I don't regret a thing, and I am not upset about it.

P.S. I LOVE how my school called me notifying me that the school will be closed tomorrow. GREAT It's SUNDAY! I have no school SUNDAY!

I had A GREAT White Snowy Day Off!

Me and my cousin went to my local library to visit, well I had to pay a fine for some over due books. Grrr ( I HATE the way my picture came out its too dark, I AM wishing for professional camera *wink *wink)

This was during the day time, when the storm was in the making....

Photobucket

10:15PM It's still coming down....

Photobucket

.....Snow shows no signs of stopping.....

Photobucket

I had to snap a picture of this, I love snow so much, it feels my love for it and trying to get into my home... Haa haaa well you know what I mean!

I hope all of you in NYC will be safe and alert this storny night!

The End

Helping Others In Need Feels Amazing.

7:09 PM Katherine H 0 Comments

Thank God for how good your life is and give thanks.






I was not payed by any organization to do this post or video, this is my honest opinion about donations. I am not rich, I work and go to school. Deep inside of my heat I know that I rather send few dollars to help others in need then buy something materialistic for myself.

This is a very touching subject for me to share with you. My eyes get filled with tears watching, reading, talking, and writing about this subject. Just by thinking that there are so many people and animals that live in poverty and constantly get abused, just breaks my heart.

Every one of you who is reading this, you guys are BLESSED. You are BLESSED because you have the privilege to be in front of the computer and are healthy and have food in your belly. Just imagine that there are people out there that don't have a home, that life on a street in all kinds of weather.

You don't believe me? Well IT'S THE TRUTH!

Below are some video about Dog ABUSE and Children In Poverty ( Videos are very sad to watch)

Dog Abuse





Kids In Poverty


I am just in total disgust by people in this world, all the rich people saving and saving their money and most of them don't donate what so ever. I know I can't completely change the world and help each and every single animal, and person in this world that is in desperate need of help to live, but i can help with what ever I can and spread the word out to as many people as I can.

There are so many people in so much need of help to live and enjoy life! Here we are fighting wars and thinking we are doing the right thing! NO WAY!

PLEASE DONATE ANYTHING THAT YOU CAN AFFORD TO ANY CHARITY OF YOUR CHOICE AND I KNOW YOU WILL FEEL SO MUCH BETTER ABOUT YOURSELF! JUST IMAGINE HOW HAPPY YOU WILL MAKE A PERSON AND ANIMAL THAT WILL BENEFIT FROM YOUR SUPPORT.

Advice,

My Money Saving Trick's And Tip's.

6:33 PM Katherine H 1 Comments

I got few TRICKS to share with you, that will help you SAVE $$$


<span class=

It's that time of year when your wallet feels so empty! I have few TIPS to share with you, THAT WILL HELP YOU SAVE BIG THIS HOLIDAY SEASON, AND ALSO THROUGH OUT THE YEAR.


P.S. I came up with all of the TIPS myself by listening to my family, friends, reading a lot about the subject, and watching TV.


LET'S BEGIN:

* DON'T BUY CHEAP CLOTHING-I am not ashamed to shop in good stores on SALES. I don't like to buy cheap clothing because after few if not one was it looks terrible.

* DON'T SHOP IN A RUSH
- I use to shop the last minute for everything. Now I got into a habit, when I am shopping for myself I am on a look out for things that can be great for the holiday and B-Days. I purchase it in advance and place them in save storage ones the occasion comes I wrap the present and give it. I shopped in a lot of stores and got a lot of cheap junk. I ended up donating or throwing it away. I always say to myself, " Its like taking money and flushing it down the toilet. I rather wait till something good will came and put my money towards it, let it be little more expensive, but it will last me much longer then the cheaper product that was bought in a rush.

*Switching Seasons- Buy winter clothing closer to summer time and summer clothes closer to winter. That way you will save a lot with lots of sales.

* Google Love- Google "compare book prices" to find most cheapest school books or any books you want to buy. Don't settle on one search and website, do lots of research it will pay off.


* Shop School Supplies Earlier- Buy school supplies before school year starts its way cheaper then during the year. Because stores give crazy sales before school starts in September.

* Library Is The Way To Go - Save even more money on random BOOK's and DVD's, by going to your local library.

* Don't buy Snacks At The Theater- When you are getting ready to go to the movies, try to buy snacks at your local grocery store. The food at the movies is way more expensive. P.S. Hide your food in your bag, because security may not let you in with it.

* Do It Your Self Time
- Save money on doing you nails at the saloon, do it yourself, you wont be a perfectionist at the begging, but you will learn each and every time. If you really can't, then when at the saloon make sure you choose light colors nail polish, that way it will stay on your nail longer and wont chip fast.

* NO NO Shaving Creams
- Don't spend money on shaving cream, use HAIR CONDITIONER. It's ohh so smooth. P.S. Make sure you apply good lotion after.

* Spa At Home- Do your own spa day's by taking along bath, with candles around, lotion your own body or PpSsss.... ASK YOU LOVE TO DO IT. Use home made masks ( Click HERE and HERE go see few options) Massage your feet and hands, lay in bed for as long as you like listening soft calm music.

* Record- Have little note books to record your purchase that you make on credit and debit card. Have separate note books for each. that way you are controlling everything.

* SAVE SAVE SAVE- Save all of your receipts from all purchases, have a mini folder or case and label each month separately. At the end of each day of shopping put in the folder, that way you will always be able to find your receipts if anything.

THE END


I am sure you will like the TIPS I shared with you above. If you have any Questions feel free to ask. Soon I will share with you more TIP'S!

Why You Should Have Twitter

5:30 PM Katherine H 0 Comments

Think you don't need TWITTER, think AGAIN

Photobucket

I LOVE to Tweet! If you follow me @TheBeautyInMe3, then you know I Tweet all the time. It's a serious addiction! The reason for this post if not really to make you follow me (BTW I THINK YOU SHOULD) It's more about creating your own Twitter Account.

HERE IS WHY: Back in JULY 2009 Cosmopolitan Magazine posted a tip, that i think is so true.

TIP: " Save at your favorite restaurants and shops by checking out their Twitter posts. Many places are now tweeting discounts, for their food and clothing. You'll get in on exclusive bargains that often aren't publicized."

I follow a lot of stores and I get updates when they have SECRET discount and SALES.

HOW TO START: So EASY. Go to TWITTER.COM
Create and account and search the name of your favorite restaurants and stores to shop in, in search bar. Be careful some are FAKE. Most likely if a lot of people follow that page of your interest it its real deal. Most websites and restaurants have homepages online and have the "FOLLOW US ON TWITTER" bottom directly on their site. Some real twitter pages have "ACCOUNT VERIFIED" Icon on top so you know its real deal! IT'S THAT EASY.

SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? GO AND BEGIN TO FOLLOW.

Welcome To Twitter Family =]

ELF Daily Brush Cleaner Review

9:41 PM Katherine H 2 Comments

Is it even worth $3? Read my review below and find out


So my recent post i posted my ELF HAUL, and promised I will do a review on the "Daily Brush Cleaner" As promised, here it is......


Photobucket

I must say the packaging is comfortable and neat. Before I placed an order for this product, I said $3 for daily brush cleaner is TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, but still wanted to try. Below you will see my experiment I did to see good it is. Its way better then just me typing and trying to explain every detail.

Photobucket

STEP ONE: I took my MAC "Humid" eye shadow. I wanted to take the darker color eye shadow, that way I would see how good it will take off the eye shadow from the brush. I was clever enough to pick a white colored brush over black, because that way we can see how much of the eye shadow came off.

Photobucket

STEP TWO: Above is me spraying the brush cleaner liquid directly onto the brush TWO TO THREE TIMES. JUST HOW IT SAID TO DO SO ON THE BACK OF THE BOTTLE. The SMELL is wonderful!

Photobucket

STEP THREE: I prefer to use a "Bounty" sheet to clean all of my brushes anytime.

(USING REGULAR THIN NAPKINS, RIPS IT EASIER)


As you can see the eyeshadow is NOT 100% off the brush. Its not as dark as it was in the beginning. Therefore,using a different shadow with that brush would mix the colors.

OVER ALL: I am not a fan of this one. I had a feeling it wont work. With $3 what would you expect. I must say their other elf products work really good, THIS ONE IS NOT ONE OF THEM.

HOW I WILL USE IT: I love the way it smells, and it does take off some eye shadow. I will probably use it to spot clean my brushes when I am using light colors. It's not strong enough to use on dark colors. I will also spray my brushes with it after I wash them so they will smell nice.
