End of Semester Updates

So i just wanted to tell you guys that last week i completed the fall semester of my Junior year in University. The new semester begins on January 23rd so that means i basically have a month to relax which is great. 3 more semesters to go before i get that bachelors degree baby. I am looking forward that final semester when i student teach.

Anyways this was a great semester. I made straight A's in 4 of my classes and a C+ in one but i am not stressing about it because it is biology...yuck not my major plus that C+ didn't pull me back from getting on the dean's list plus now my GPA is a 3.44 =] I hope by the time of graduation i will exceed beyond that and graduate with special honors.

Christmas Party make up

I don't celebrate but my parents friends invited us over their house to celebrate. Anyways as i have stated previously i am not a pro but i think i do an okay job with my make up. My mom's friend even complimented me and told me i needed to teach her daughter how to do make up lol Anyways here are the pics. Basic gold eyeshadow from the coastal scents palette with pink lips.

Took advantage of Bill me Later

So there is this new feature that can be used in most online stores called "Bill me Later" where you can buy something and opt to pay for it later. Well ebay kept sending me emails about this feature and giving me 6 months to pay so i decided to take advantage of it. I spent 52 dollars on a pair of thigh high boots and a dress. This is probably the only time i will use this feature because i know i will probably get too addicted and go overboard =]

Anyways here are the two things i ordered

New Pink Fuschia Pumps

I just recently ordered these shoes on ebay. It was $14.36 plus free shipping! I usually like my heels a little bit higher but i couldn't pass these shoes up plus i need some pink shoes. It is estimated to arrive at my door step by the end of this week. Next up i want to order some thigh-high boots.

Gave Bree a bath today

Remember Bree? Well today i decided to wash her. I haven't washed her since i purchased her which was in late May of this year. Yeah i know gross but it didn't smell bad at all i just wanted to give it a wash. As usual i filled my tiny blue bucket with water added a little shampoo and swished the wig around the soapy water for about a minute. Then i emptied the bucket, filled it with clean water, swished the wig around to remove the soapy-ness. Afterwards i shook the wig to remove any water then i hanged it up to dry. It is about 95% dry right now. An update on the hair. It is still standing strong! And i must say it looks way better after i washed it. Prior to washing it had a bit of fake shine...maybe it is because i purchased it in the color 1 but either way after the wash it looks more natural. The ends feel a teeny bit rough but it isn't bad at all. Since the hair is futura i can probably run a flat iron over it and it will be back to good =]

Orders for this week (updated)

So i know i posted i was going to get  three different dresses but i changed my mind and got a new purse, a pair of white skinny jeans and a dress. All totaling $41.87. The skinny jeans will probably arrive at the end of this week since the seller is in the U.S. The other things are coming from China so they will be here by the 14th of next month which is when i will be going home.

Black Body Con skirt $6.99 each.

Dress $9.99 originally $19.99

Wig Spray $1.99 w/ $4.40 shipping

I probably won't get them till mid December since they are coming from China but oh well i am willing to wait.

Update: I had to make some changes and order different things because right before i was about to check out i found out some items i put in my cart were out of stock because someone beat me to it. Oh well.....

New Ebay Purchases

I ordered three beanie hats each 4.99 with free shipping and a yellow eye shadow. I am assuming this is a MAC knockoff but oh well i saw this eyeshadow during a make up tutorial and i just had to have it knock off or not. I really don't care about the brand, i just want a bright yellow eyeshadow. The seller of the beanie hats is topzone999 and for the eyeshadow is visa2012. All my packages should be at my home next week when i go home for thanksgiving break :-)

I knew i said i wasn't going to purchase another wig

But i will next week! I know i said i was going to get the jealousy lace wig but i have changed my mind because i saw a real honest review on how awful it was. Well just a few minutes ago i was browsing hairsisters and came across this Freetress wig called Dream Girl. I tried to find reviews on youtube and just in general and i got nothing so i guess i will be the first and be the guinea pig. What i like about this wig is that it is futura so it shouldn't be so bad if i don't make it an everyday wig. I am hoping it has a skin part at the top but it should. I will probably experiment with color and get it in a 1B/30.....maybe.

Freetress scarlett Straightened/worn as a half wig

By now you all know what scarlett looks like in it's original state. Loose curls yadaah yadaah yadaah. Well it looked horrible in its natural state so i straightened the wig and i am now wearing it as a half wig instead of a lacefront. Overall i will say i will not repurchase this wig. It sheds/tangles a lot in its natural state. The wig construction is can see tracks at the top. Not enough parting space. The only good thing about it is that it is futura which means it can be straightened and stuff. The shedding and tangling seems to have minimized after i straightened it. It is pretty long, like mid back length. I actually trimmed it down. Hair down to my butt is not realistic on me.

Planning a new video for youtube

I just took a break from studying for a biology test which is coming up on Thursday to make a script for a new youtube video i am  going to make in a couple of weeks. I know youtube is probably over-saturated with tips on how to manage your wigs but i want to make a video with my own tips. I am now writing out some tips in my notebook, most of my youtube videos are not planned so i tend to look confused and my thoughts are so unorganized so i am actually planning out what i am going to say.

The new video will be coming in two weeks when i go home for thanksgiving break.

Wig maintenance day/other wig updates

So i came home this weekend because i haven't been home since fall break which was about 3-4 weeks away. I was itching to come home because i wanted to get my other wigs and bring it back with me. Well first off, remember Scarlett?

Well you guys won't be getting a review on her really....well at least not in her natural state. I couldn't figure out how to make her look good so since it is a futura wig meaning it is a synthetic wig that can handle some heat i straightened her and i am now going to wear her as a half wig instead of a lacefront. Lacefront wise it looks ugly and fake because the part is only like a just looks strange. I pride myself on making my wigs look realistic to the human eye so i can't be walking around with an obvious looking wig. Anyways, I have been looking for a straight-ish half wig for a while and i guess i just made myself one now lol.

Anyways i gave HZ7065 a wash today because she was starting to lose her bounce. I also trimmed up that wig i got from wigfever months back which was a disaster and gave her a wash as well.

The number of wigs i own now stands at 8. I will be purchasing Jealousy next week. She is futura as well so if she doesn't work out i will turn her straight lol I think hz 7065 is futura as well. Not sure, on hairsisters it says so. If she goes bad she is turning straight too.

Why men love bitches

So i was reading one of my favorite message boards and the recommendation of the book “Why men love bitches.” came up. I looked up the book on amazon and luckily the first chapter of the book was put up for free. I read it and felt sad when the first chapter was over.
I really need to purchase this book because i feel like i am too nice when it comes to this dating thing. I have noticed that a lot of times, us women are always overcompensating for men just to get them to make it official. I see girls going out of their way to cook meals, have sex, do laundry and showcase our domestic, “wifey” skills for men who haven’t even made it official with them. For why? to show them that we can cook, clean and whatnot so if they see us doing this stuff for them they will be ready to get on one knee and propose.
The purpose of this book is not to tell women to be bitches as in be a cold, hard to deal with women. It is telling us to be assertive, not overcompensate and not come off as desperate when dealing with men. I see it all the time, a guy loses interest in a woman and she wonders why since she supposedly did everything right. Guys do not go out of their way to overcompensate so why do we?

I have noticed on the dating websites i have guys who live more than half an hour away messaging me and then they decide i am not worth driving such a distance to see. You see, they won’t go out their way to do such nice things for a random ass girl so why do we women go out of our way to please them? If it is anything we should be giving these guys a mental challenge and have them do most of the work.
In the end it should be us women who should be making the final/ultimate decision on whether we want to be with these guys or not. None of this,”where is this relationship going?” business. If it is anything we should be hearing that sentence from men. Men always claim they want a nice gal’ who will cook for them, not a bitch etc  etc….but that doesn’t mean we should be giving them all these things when they have yet to make the commitment. It all makes sense to me now.
This is why i do not listen to these dumb articles that claim that women should pursue men and go out of their way to do so. Yeah, that works out so well. Not! I will be purchasing this book and will be reading it over winter break.

Face treatment on a Friday night

Sensationnel 7065 half wig

How do i feel about this wig? I am neutral right now. I think i may have finger combed it out a bit too much. Out the pack it is pretty thin and fake looking so you do have to finger comb it out a bit. I do love big hair so i can get used to it. I prefer Gala but i can't wear Gala everyday. Blending was a bit of a problem, i know you all can't see it but i think it would be a match for someone with natural hair. I should have brought my crimper up with me for blending purposes but right now i will settle for a braid out in the front. 

It will be my everyday hair pretty much. With the specifics, this is the second Sensationnel half wig i own. It has a comb in the front and back plus adjustable straps. It fits pretty well, i can't imagine it falling off even on the windiest days. FYI i wore outre's Amber and Naomi on windy winter mornings and i have never had them fall off so this should be fine. This wig does require some big ol' earrings to make it look even more fab =]

i will be making a video when i find a proper way to blend.

Video Review on Gala

Freetress Gala

Loving it so far, i brushed out the curls when i took it out. No combs but it fits well and i secured it with bobby pins for extra security. Has a skin part at the top, i was afraid it was going to look fake but i love it. Very Kim K! Haven't noticed much shedding but this is the first day so we shall see!

Package here plus other purchases.

After getting frustrated of waiting i just decided to go to the mall and get my eyebrows done plus while i was there i got some Chinese food and stopped by Sephora and bought a skin primer. I have combination skin and i need it to be under control while under foundation.

Boscia Skin perfecting primer $25 (Haven't used it yet but i will revisit this product and review later on)

Anyways here is the package, it came with two jolly ranchers. two 10% coupons for it being my first order and a sample of this Roots of Nature mango oil and sweet almond oil Thermal smoothing serum. Oh and i ordered this package off I highly recommend, they don't have as much of a selection as hairsisters but it is so much better. They have cheaper prices plus very fast shipping. Within an hour of ordering it was marked shipped and i received my package 2 days later. It probably came super fast because i am in Pennsylvania and the company is based in Illinois which is about 3 states away.

Waiting on UPS

to bring my package. They are seriously taking a long time to deliver this package. After they come i am going to head to the mall to get my eyebrows thread plus get some Chinese food.

Great Deal! Cute brush set

I always like to look for good deals on beauty products on ebay for my readers. Here is this brush set for US $1.99 and free shipping. I have this same exact brush set but in Blue.

Made my order about an hour ago

and it was just marked shipped. It will probably arrive early next week. I am having it shipped to my place on campus. I am thinking of taking out my sew-in.

I can't wait! For those who do not know what i am talking about. I am referring to the Gala Wig and HZ7654 half wig

I think i am going to put a stop to this wig/ half wig business. When these two arrive i will officially be an owner of 8 wigs. I think that is about enough. I now need to purchase some mannequin heads to store them. Right now they are all hanging on some type of object at home.

10 Pairs of Black False eyelashes plus free glue

I won this on ebay ladies and gentlemen. The first ever bid i have ever won on ebay and i have been on ebay for pretty much a year. I guess i didn't have much competition. I was impressed by how fast i received this item considering that these sellers in China can take almost a month to get me my package. I payed $4.15 cents for them and the shipping was free. It also came with free glue, it probably won't last but i will purchase some at walmart sometime. At first i was a bit scared of the lashes considering that i have had trouble applying false eyelashes plus the lashes looked so big and unnatural in the package. I didn't want spider lashes. But i actually watched the "How to apply fake eyelashes" video i posted in a previous entry and gave them a try today and i think i did a good. I need more practice but it looks well and not like spider lashes. It is amazing what some fake lashes can do to the face. I think i will be kissing mascara good bye. 

I also ordered another 10 pair from another seller but i think i prefer the others. Anyways this is what they look like.

Thinking of trying this ombre thing

I was browsing the Victoria's secret website today and came across this picture of Chanel Iman and i love the whole ombre thing she has going on. I have never colored my hair because i am too afraid of color but i think this is something i can work with.
