The Right Face Brushes Will Make A HUGE Difference, In How Your Make Up Looks/Stays On Your GORGEOUS Face!

Back few months ago (almost a year) I blogged about a ECOTOOLS Beauty promotion. Read HERE all about it. I hope they are doing it this year again. I Finally purchased two products from ECOTOOLS. One will be blogged today and the next next post! I love my Sigma brushes and use the two years later DAILY, since I was able to try this for free why now!!!???

Photobucket
Packaging: Neat 



Price: I got mine at Bed Bath&Beyond for FREE (Click HERE so you can see why&can also) 
Its Around $8.00 USD 
( Drugstores like Walgreens sell it for more)


Photobucket

Quality: I must say I am IMPRESSED! The only down side is that the brush handle will over time get dark from touching it (Even with clean hands, make up could get on it by accident) I am being very careful not to get any make up on the handle. I am such OCD.

Photobucket

Results: Its super soft, I use this to blend/give finish touches on my foundation and powder! Some days I use this just to apply my translucent powder. It gives such a great finish.

Photobucket

Washing&Drying: I washed this brush 3 times, its easy to wash and it dries over night around 5 hours! 


OverAll Impression/Rating: Photobucket

Weekend Happiness

Its the weekend!!!!

I have so much to do, so many things on my TO DO LIST to finish. But one thing I was indulging it is sleeping in. I woke up two hours ago. Me&Keylana&Dina slept in bed until the puppies started to play and woke me up. 

Anyway, I was thinking what to blog about and I noticed I haven't posted any inspirational/motivational post. Since its a weekend and I wanted to share with you few TIPS how to enjoy your weekend to the fullest with out having to spend $$$


1. Make up the time you want to wake up (If you wake up early, then you will have a longer day to enjoy)
 
2. Make your own breakfast, if you don't cook then go out alone and have a morning breakfast date with your self.
 
3. If you love watching YOUTUBE&BLOG then take some time aside to brows and check out not only FASHION&MAKEUP videos&posts, but also check out inspirational blogs, that talk about happiness, love, life,richness and all that motivating stuff. 
 
4. If you have a TO DO LIST, make sure you finish by Friday, if you cant (lets get real most of us cant fit everything in 5 days) finish it early in the morning (Like I said in # 1 if you wake up early you can finish TO DO list early and then you can follow all of the other things I am mentioning. 
 
5. Take a walk (If you have a puppy/dog then walk with them), If you live by the beach then its a amazing thing because it clean air and its refreshing. If its raining then open up windows in your house and just zoom out and listen to the sound of the rain. 
 
6. If cleaning makes you happy or organizing, then do so. while you doing it play a slow music that makes you relax, no words in it, just instrumental sounds. You can find so many nice songs on YOUTUBE just search: Relaxing Instrumental Songs (P.S. I am listening to one right now) Make a play list so you wont always shave to search for the songs and if can play one after another.
 
7. If you have a animal, even a fish take few moments out of your day to just talk to them, I know I sound kinda crazy, but its a relaxing thing ever. Animals wont talk back to you, they will just listen and you can pour your heart out and after wards feel better.
 
8. take time to Exercise. Since Keylana came into my life, I have to cancel my membership at the gym because not only I didn't have time to go due to other personal things, but I had Keylana to look after and me and her would take walks and if its raining or snowing I would put on a music and dance and play together with her with her toys. Not only its a great exercise for the dog but its a great exercise for me. 
 
9. Anytime of the year I would choose staying in and cooking for the loved ones. I do get lazy and go out to eat, but to me spending time in the kitchen makes me so happy, its like a joy cooking and then having loved one taste it, I feel like I won something big. It never gets old.
 
10. Read. Okey I confess, its hard for me to bring myself to read, because I have to read so much stuff that I don't like for school. But I've recently finished Kyle Richards' Book “Life Is Not a Reality Show” in one week. I have never ever finished a book in one week. I wasn't able to put it down. I love to read books that will motivate me and make me happy and make me think on things that better my life and me as as an individual. 
 
 
 These are my 10 things that I swear by that make me happy. There are more, but for now in this post I want to share the TOP ones. Baby Steps. I've came a long way to realize&understanding order to be happy you need to re-evaluate your life and that means to think long and hard and let go of things that truly don't make you happy. Even if it means to have one friend and other ones just people you know, then let it be. I have two childhood friend that I consider them to be even though we met when I was 17, still to me they are childhood friends, we may not talk everyday or see each other everyday, but we know we can always count on each other, I have my family which is the most important thing ever. Make sure that you cherish your family. I know there are different types of family and you may not get along, this is where friends that are more then just friends they are family comes into play.

Everything happens for a reason. Live the life you want and love the life you life. Every minute is a minute that you can make unforgettable.

L'Oreal Paris Telescopic Mascara Clean Definition Review

4:53 PM Katherine H 0 Comments

Why settle for less when you deserve the best?



During the past 6 months something changed.

I have tried 4 different MASCARAS! Never in my life I have done so, I am not sure why. I think I realized that a right mascara can make a HUGE difference in my look. I seen Adrienne Loof. From the Read Housewifes Of Beverly Hills, Tweet that she loves "L'Oreal Paris Telescopic  Mascara Clean Definition" ( I adore her, so I trusted her view/opinion and gave this mascara a try.

Packaging: Neat and easy to use.

Photobucket
 
 Consistency: Just Perfent. Not to wet and not to dry.
 
Results: It doesn't clump like other mascaras do, I apply two coats and some eye lashes to stick together, but I use a eye lash brush to comb it out and its a go. My eye lashes are FULLER&LONGER, but not like I am wearing false eye lashes. It does flake a little by I only experience that after 12 hours of wear and also after I would rub my eyes. Over all I like this mascara and its a diffidently on my FAVORITES list this year so far. But this doesn't mean I have stopped searching for "THE PERFECT" mascaras!

Price: I got mine at Bed Bath&Beyond for $ 7.00 USD

Cher Lloyd - Want U Back ft. Astro

7:49 PM Katherine H 4 Comments

Before making a life changing decision THINK hard&do soul searching, to see if you are making the right decision!

I am very very OPINIONATED!!! I think you guys know, so i recently heard the song by Cher Lloyd - Want U Back ft. Astro. It was going good, until Astro came in and started to rapping or what ever he was going. To my view he messed up the who end of the song. 

This is a different song, because usually its the male singing to the female I WANT YOU BACK, but tables turned and its the female wanting the man back. I think its a great song all together the beat&lyrics, but Astro-got to go. I am going to try to find the song with out him so I can enjoy the sing with out him. 

I am not saying he is bad rapper or w.e that he claims to be, but this song is good with out him. 

P.S. Did I mention I think she is freaking GORGEOUS!!! 


I found just the audio of the song with out the video and with out Astro...HEAR THE DIFFERENCE!!!

Juicy Sweet Honey Checken Thies

Devote today to something so daring even you can’t believe you’re doing it. -Oprah


As promised, this is a cooking post. As you may or may not know I LOVE TO COOK&EAT. I rather buy all the necessary products and cook at the privacy of my own home then go out to a restorant and eat. Dont get me wrong now, I enjoy and love going to get treated at a restorant when I am lazy, but I make sure that is not my habbit. Because I love to control what is going into my food. I dont use too much oil or salt. I use everything in moderation. Few years ago, i picked up on baking food instead of frying and let me tell you, I feel the difference.

I GREW UP IN A FAMILY WHERE EVERYONE KNEW HOW TO COOK. It's a norm for me that a female can cook. I get amazed that some women can not cook, even my friends. I guess since I was always around woman and even men who cook all the time its in me that that's a norm and woman should know who to cook, even  if its a basic stuff (NOT ONLY EGGS&FRANKS) I don't want to offend any woman that reading this and cant cook, my suggestion to you is PRACTICE ( This is why I posted a quote by Opera at the top of this post) In my carrier of choice I don't judge, I help. This is why I would never judge a woman who cant cook, I HELP!


ENOUGH with Blah Blah Blah.....

Any whoooo, lets get into a tutorail. I love to look at other blogs to get ideas of different dishes and the blogs that I stick to are the ones who give step by step instructions and even with out explanation or ingridience list I can see and know what I have to use and do. This is why my cooking posts and other post that require explanation will have juicy&detailed pictures of each step.....

Keylana,

Adorable Version Of Shrek

2:19 PM Katherine H 0 Comments

Love, without concern over whether you'll be loved in return. You will be. You are.

I cant get over how CUTE this PJ's is. Back in a day, especially in Russia, you would never see a dog wearing any kind of outfit. Here in USA the outfits for dogs are the cutest.

I've been on a HUNT for a cute PJ's for Keylana and FINALLY I found one. When I put it on  I said "....OMG You look like the most adorable version on SHREK"



BTW, did you guys notice, Keylana has taken over my blog....You see more of her then me, maybe Keylana should start her own blog?  :)

Nail Care And Designs,

NAIL TUTORIAL

3:03 PM Katherine H 0 Comments

Stop striving & pretending to be someone you're not. Choose instead to live the rich and authentic life that is the real you.
 
Hey my loves

I have never did a nail tutorial EVER! Its been almost 3 years since I started filming video on YOUTUBE and I have never filmed STEP BY STEP tutorial on how I do my nails. I Posted pictures and Tweeter my nail designs and stuff and got tons of E-mails asking me to do a tutorial.

Well......
I DID IT!

I've been doing my own nails since I was about 14 years old. I didn't grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth and my mommy and daddy didn't give me the luxury of spending money on going to saloon and getting it professionally done.

Ones I started working at age 16 I did go couple of times to get mini done and TIPS, but I came to conclusion that it adds up to so much money over the year that I could use that money to do something else with it. After coming to that conclusion I went back to the saloon to get my nails done couple more times, just to see the steps on how to do my own nails (EVEN TIPS) almost a decade later I am still doing my own nails.

Yes, first couple of times I hated the outcome, but I didn't give up. I knew with practice I will get better. Yes I am not PERFECT, but I am getting there.

Thanks to YOUTUBE I am able to share with you step by step how I learned from the PROS. to do my nails.

LET ME ADMIT SOMETHING......
(I STILL go to PROS. to get my pedicure done)

Watch this video, I teach you how to do you own nails and SAVE $$$
