Transiting & Reviews

So, recently my mother bought me some of doctor miracles  hair products.  2 hair moisturizers and 2 packets of deep conditioner.

she got me:

Dr.Miracles Follicle healer. and Dr. Miracle’s Anti-Breakage strengthening creme

I’ve tried it both. and it’s only been a day.  and my hair feels very nice, and probably healthy . they both have a stimulating factor and after you message it in you feel like a cool tingling sensation.which is pretty cool.

 

Now for my review on the Flat iron i recently purchased

the Mia mini professional flat iron (1/2 inch)  which I tried on my sisters hair. my sister hair shoulder length hair very full even with a perm in it.

the flat iron did a really good job. it heated up really quickly. and stayed hot and didn’t seem to waver. it did the job very well. i mean it took along time since it was a half inch.  if they made a bigger size that would be cool.i still have to try it on myself.  but that will come later.

but all and all  the flat iron is really really good.

Mini Gagets for college

Well… since I am going to college soon…like in 3 weeks.. ( =( ) I buying things I need…or really really want,mostly need though.  and so far I’ve got just about everything covered. i need a few clothes but other than I’m good. and just recently i bought a hair dryer, heat protecting serum, and a flat iron.

I just went to Walmart to pick up this beauty. It does come in other colors, or patterns really.  (Zebra and leopard)2013-07-18_21.19.09       2013-07-18_21.19.53

the MIA mini straightening iron professional series  is originally $30 on the sellers website

Link here: http://miahairaccessories.com/

but at Walmart the online price is about $9.00 add in shipping and handling from Site to Store… is $10

1/3 the price, just about.  and it comes with a cool it pouch. Zebra print…nice.

this 1/2 inch flat iron is pretty.   does it work?

well a large majority (more than 1/2) of the reviews say yes.  but I’ll just have to wait and see..

specs: ( on the back of the box)

its 6 inches long in length

1/2 inch Tourmaline ceramic plates <— that supposed to heat evenly

heats up in 30 seconds

on and off switch found on the inside of the top plate.

on light indicator

world wide dual voltage

cool it pouch included.

heats up to 400 degrees.

I would probably give a further review when I actually use it. but as of right now. the iron is fairly light weight. compact. I can tell it would be great for short hair such as mine. and for reaching the back in tight areas. I love the color. black and red.  sexy.

Next

Olive Oil: ORS heat protection serum

i got this at National Liquidator for about $6.00

2013-07-18_21.59.37

it’s really a clear liquid … but the flash kinda messed it up.. but.. close enough.

Revlon Hair dryer for about $10.00 at the same place.

2013-07-18_22.00.02

Relaxed to Natural

So… my prom night was the last time I permed my hair, and i officially decided to stop perming my hair and go back to being natural.

I first started to perm my hair around my sophomore year of high school.  it was all good. my hair was, at the time, shoulder length and gorgeous.  then it started breaking. and to combat that I decided to put in extensions/ weave, so that my hair would grow out without it being tampered with. and my hair grew fast. and the breakage stopped for a bit. then I had to get it washed, and lets just say my mother happened to it. long story short, it turned into a tangled mess and I had to get it cut out.  so I went short, like.. jaw length short.  which I hated, but then breakage riddled my hair again and I was forced into cutting it shorted to so I rocked the pixie look which my friends loved. I will admit I did like it at first. but I after I while I missed my shoulder length hair I wanted it back. so it was my mission to get it long for prom. but that didn’t  happen so as you can see in my prom pics. I was did the short look.

so now that I am no longer in school for the time being anyway I am trying to grow it out. but I feel it will be hard because I’m going to college which is a new stress with tuition and what not. I at least want to have healthy hair.  I want my hair to be at least shoulder length again. and who knows maybe I will perm it again. I do have a soft spot for the sexy bone straight style. I love hair that is soft sleek and straight. but in order to achieve that goal I need to change.

so this is my first step into transition.

I didn’t cut off the permed part. meaning I didn’t so “the big chop” mainly because I don’t see myself with super short hair. so I’ve decided to grow it out, with the perm and maybe once… depending on how it looks when I have reached my desired natural grow out length I will cut off the permed part.  but other wise I am dealing with two different hair textures at the moment. I think I am ready for this personal challenge.

Challenge Accepted.

Sale(s)

so my first sale post on the new and improved blog. i hope to be doing much more and have more things to blog about… but until then, back to the SALES. but before i start i want you to now that i do NOT promote or am a sponsor of any of the store below.. i simply like shopping there. i mainly post there here so that people who are looking for a sale are notified about it, i mean you could always sign up for notifications but that just gets annoying sometimes. so this is a less annoying way to notify you can entertain you .. i guess.

Forever21:  

is having a sale on clothing and accessories and much more. up to 75% off the original price… meaning .. 99cent nail polish on certain colors or new lower prices on clothing. but be warned on their return policy all ON Sale Makeup sales are Final. and i would make sure the pants you buy fit.

Hottopic:

is having a sale on body  piercings.. if your into that… if not, not to worry they have an all exclusive and new fashion collection by Tripp, NYC: The mortal City of Bones inspired by a movie.

Drug Stores

Walgreens: 

is having a sale on “favorite ” summer brands L’Oreal is on sale as BOGO  ( buy 1 get one 50% off) as well as other products are marked down.

CVS: 

they have a new Beauty club.  clearance items are marked down as 40% off,  don’t have to much to say because i don’t really shop there too often.

Rite Aid:

they have a sale on  Physician formula Cosmetics 40% off

Jcpenny:  

I don’t know about you but ever since JOE fresh moved into to jcp I find that store more interesting. though.. they don’t carry Joe fresh’s entire line… like their makeup. but i enjoy going to  JCP’s  clearance, :though depending on what JCP you go to it can be a hit or miss but the treasure you find the clearance… WOW. but anyway back to the sale.  They are having a summer sale on select items and 30-70% certain clearance items.

    Joe Fresh: also introduce their all new kids section

Walmart:

a store i hate, but only because the closet one to me and probably the only one near me is always so freaking crowded.. long lines, waiting online.. people wadding in the aisles with mutiple shopping carts… it’s a place i tend to avoid at all costs unless it is absolutely necessary.  but they are having a sale on items for college. which is something i am interesting in since i have to go there in about a month. plus i just ordered a really cute flat iron  from there for about $10.40 cents had to ship it to store.

E.L.F cosmetics:

there also having a type of sale on there website. where they’re giving away select items away for FREE… when you purchase a certain amount of items, also 50% off on everything on there website but hurry you have under and hour left to get that deal.  but if you want free shipping they have a code you can use for free shipping.

New product to look out for: ( if you haven’t seen them yet)

City Color Cosmetics.

i haven’t tried it yet but i spotted this line in a store which i cant remember the name of at the moment. but i was fairly inexpensive and seemed pretty cool but i feel since its “new” it  needs to separate it self from the other lower end makeup products such as NYC color or LA color or Wet’n’wild.

some youtubers  have  already tried and they seem to love it. if you have tried it …what do you think

Link :http://www.citycolorbeauty.com/

and way there are the stores that are having a sale that I’ve looked at. mainly ones i can afford to shop at =)  don’t  judge. but yes there are lots more I just haven’t gotten around to looking at them lately but there will be more posts.

Posts from Adventures Apart.

today we being the blog. starting with past adventures and working forward. today update… after school talking about the blog, prom and hot guys… 😀  so… these  post aren’t in order anymore.

 

this pictures… only shows two of us at the moment but what ever. they had and altercation… perfect time to take random photos.

Past adventures with Chriss and  Lex

Senior trip:

super fun and exciting even through the ups and down, from the sledding to sharing a bed in the room. senior trip was exciting.  even the bus ride.. though we all fell asleep on the way back. I mean Chriss differently was a changed person after the extreme sledding. especially after the many many wipe-outs. so many wipe outs.. >.<

Lex’s Birthday:  Fun time all around went to Wendy’s and saw Jack the Giant slayer. and everyone was iffy about that movie but after the movie… MIND BLOWN.  best time ever! i would love to do it again.

Wednesday on 14th street:

so after eating at Wendy’s Chirss and i as well as a another friend.. go to Forever 21. and this dude… is standing there with his sign…

so Balls-y Bold..and somewhats weird… this is something you don’t see everyday…

signed, LEX

Today we went in to Manhattan got a free makeup lesson from Bobbi brown then went to Jacks After we went into the mall and I found Chris perfect prom dress yay!

Hi

so i just bought  my first pair of false lashes from  E.l.F from target. Only 1.09 ( 9cent tax)  but yeah..

 

I also bought my first eye lash curler also 1.09  it black and sliver and comes with a spear eyelash cushion thingy.

its seems very strong and curls my lashes fine. it makes both my lashes eye even since my right ones are longer than my left. not sure why though. e.e but yeah

Pros: its only 1.00 =)

its really good just like the pricy ones.

cons: i wish it was bit smaller since my eyes are small so it is a tad bit uncomfortable but other wise its a good deal if your looking for a lash curler so I’m getting all the things i need for prom so expect more posts.

Adventures with friends:

SO today, Lex and I went shopping for prom dresses. Or rather, Lex was assisting me in picking something out. For the third time. Or was it the fourth? Bottom line, we have been all over the city looking for something good that would fit me. I’m not gonna lie. I have huge boobs. Like, to the point where they’re a problem. NOTHING FITS ME ‘CASUE IT DOESN’T FIT OVER MY ABNORMAL SIZED CHEST.

So we’re in Loeman’s or something, and we find a dress to try on, just to check the size (which turned out to be too small). The clerk points us to the fitting room. An open fitting room. I walk in like, ‘this is a fitting room? Where are the stalls and stuff?’ Till this lady takes off her shirt. And reveals she decided to go commando today. Lex was trying not to stare and I was all –> O-O OPEN FITTING ROOM.

Buuuuut eventually we found the dress in Burlington. Except the line (the ONLY line, mind you) was as long as a line at an amusement park that only had one bathroom that was unisex. I mean, COME ON, I didn’t even know it was possible for lines to be that long! And I have linephobia (fear of standing in long lines. Like, dead ass, I start hyper ventilating and shit.) Somehow we got through THAT (Lex talked to me which kept me distracted and there was this old lady…don’t wanna go into it.) took a pitstop in McDonald’s and called it a day.

We almost got hit by a car on the way there, and on the way back some fight started in the street. Of downtown Manhattan. Yeah, we didn’t have some happy drivers. Lex pushed me to the subway where we waited for an F. We got a corner 2-seater when some old guy walked onto the train. I was debating whether to give up my seat or not when the strangest thing happened. I saw him fall in my head. I could literally see it happening. I thought I should say something but I knew Lex would have given me that look (–> O.o) so I kept my mouth shut. And guess what? He started to fall when the train started moving. We were all ‘whoa! You okay? You should sit’ but the old guy was all ‘no, I’m fine. Just gotta get over there’. Yeah, I don’t get old people either.

….yeah everything else:

Makeup installment 3.5

Posted on May 15, 2013

 

I exchanged the Jordana Double Impact 06 for the Duet 11 and I used the red to mix with my gold from forever 21 Neutral palette  to create  a rose-gold color. I bought the new Wet n Wild  ” Take the day” eyeshadow primer from the Fergie Center stage collection, it comes out with as beige or a nude color  even though the color on the website it says it ‘s white…  and the packet says beige unless its the color of my computer monitor…  It’s every important to use it sparingly because too much and it does crease and get very smudgy and then there is no real point in using it in the first place.

2013-05-14_20.17.16 2013-05-14_21.01.59 2013-05-14_21.02.51

Anyway I tried it without eyeshadow and it  my oily lids pretty matte. so it did a very nice job. it goes on beige and dries clear. I would say that instead of paying $5.oo and change for it i would wait for it to go on sale.  mainly because even though it’s a good primer ( i later tried it with eyeshadow)  it’s going  to last you a while but  $5.00 is a bit pricy.. i would be more willing to pay $3.oo just my opinion

but Y.A.Y and inexpensive eyelid primer other than E.L.F. ( I’ve never found elf in a Walgreen’s yet)

As for the head band …i ordered it on eBay. and yes… i got free shipping. >=)

Makeup installment 3

Posted on May 12, 2013

 

I finally got it! i got the cover girl 3 in 1 foundation. i got it “tawny” and it cost about $10.00 with my Walgreen card i applied it and it looks so natural. i think on Monday I’m going to give it an all day test drive. i also bought blush by Wet n Wild, in “Pearlesecnt Pink ” which gives me a natural flush  tone to my cheeks and it is layer-able.  And a Jordana duo eyeshadow 06  Double Impact which I am going to take back because the light color isn’t very flattering it looking pinkish and  but it comes out with sliver color which I strongly dislike.  but the dark purple color is very flattering  very pigmented, I tried blending the colors on my  hand and eye to see it would come out better… it didn’t work. at. all it was just horrible.

Shopping Haul.

Posted on May 12, 2013

1

wow I am tired… Today I went shopping with my mother… I spent about $70-$80 :(

I normally don’t even break $5.00 I mean at the moment my mother pays my bill… (which is well over 100… stupid college shopping) but its a learning experience… still not used to the idea of a credit card… ANYWAY I have about 3 hauls for you . Two are way over due and I’ve always wanted to do, but was too lazy and one is actually form today… Back to my shopping trip,outside was a mess, went to the mall and the stop lights weren’t working… talk about traffic. and the puddles… and the rain… the crowds of people looking for Mothers day gifts… ( B.T.W Happy Mothers Day) today was a day to sleep  in -_-.  Anyway first… my eBay haul… eBay.. the best thing that’s ever happened to me…especially when i get free shipping… =) something I look for no matter what! my very first eBay items were a bag and an mp3 player. It was about $10.00 free shipping. I love it.. you can see the wear and tear. I had for about a year now. =) it is so cute.

Along with that I bought this:

2013-05-11_19.30.042013-05-11_19.39.18

it’s a   Cowon C2  in pink it was $130 free shipping the case was $11 free shipping

yes it did come with head phones very nice ones in fact. I cant find them … at the moment …

I know never heard of it… it an MP3 player. I didn’t want and iPod and Zune ended and the one I had died. so I went to find another, I found this and fell in love with it plus no one in my school has one so.. yeah =)

it has  55 hrs. of battery life (songs) or 10 hrs. of Videos.

the sound quality is Amazing!

expandable memory. Mine is  4 GB .. I know small right but at the time I wasn’t a music junkie. so it suited me but I now have a 16 GB SD card in it. so I’m OK

specs and other info here: http://www.cowonglobal.com/

the one I really want now because it sleeker and looks really cool. is the  cowon Z2

it’s far more advanced  >.<… so pretty.. o.o

that was my first eBay purchase.

My second buy from eBay was more fashionable and it was my X-mas present from my mother and her friend.

2013-05-11_19.56.41

the necklace was  .99 cents

eyeliner was .99 cents

the long one ear earring was $1.99

the earrings were .99 cents but shipping because of the material they were made from was 1.30cents

later I bought this dress for $15.00

I recently bought a  cute wallet  for 6.99 free shipping and I’m waiting for a head band that I bought for prom which was  3.99 free shipping.

2013-05-11_22.07.17

this pic doesn’t do it justice. it really a cool mint blue color

Now for the actual physical shopping spree.

first stop was.. In the mall my mother was looking for pants i was looking for a strapless bra. but ended up in Sephora  looking for a blush color a lip color found  a blush color but it was to sparkly . and even though I washed my hand i am still sparkly.. -_-

OH first time ever in a Victoria secret… man there expensive. … they didn’t even carry my size.. I went to  Bed bath and beyond.. they were having a sale.  still spent a lot of money but i got my favorite scent. though I have to say.. I like the original one better the sent is stronger (in a good way)  anyway it was buy 2 get 1 free or buy 3 get 2 free..

I like the original packaging better… but whatever i got what i wanted.. plus a bonus one

 

2013-05-11_22.15.54

then I went to ULT A to get a set of makeup but ended only buying lipstick, i wanted to get the cover girl 3 in one foundation but they did not have my color. I bought the L’Oreal pairs Colour Riche  444 Tropical Coral

2013-05-11_22.30.302013-05-11_22.30.00

it looks very natural on me. but it kinda has a pop but not like HEY you it’s like hey.   it was a little over $7 … -_- Ima find a cheaper version I know..I know cheaper isn’t better but.. i like keeping money in my pocket.

I also bought this cute dress from JCP… where in JCP you might ask… brace your self for the answer… in the kids section. yes world i am that small. I am a large in kids. and no the dress isn’t short or anything it actually like at my knees. so yeah. :/

2013-05-11_22.39.51

i could totally pair this with a red belt or red heels and rock this :D i will be posting a better pic.

As for my mission to find a bra. i found one at Century 21.

dangerous lipstick and lashes

Posted on May 9, 2013

 

So I’m watching the  news ( my 9) and there was a segment on eyelash extension  are Harmful to the eyes, they trap dirt and collect bacteria and can cause allergic reaction. and the glue use already can cause allergic reactions. and that you should use mascara and remember to replace it every few months.

Well… I think that all that might be true but… why not just use false eyelashes not a frequently. and replace them  after a certain amount of uses? like give it an “expiration date”

does your lipstick contain… lead?  aluminum? well i don’t know  i don’t read the ingredients…  and yeah.  a test was conducted on 32 lipsticks from the department store… and they found some metals which  can raise health risk.  >.> what the hell!

here the link to the lipstick article: http://www.my9tv.com/story/22140893/lipsticks-glosses-contain-toxic-metals-report

Makeup Tutorial

Posted on May 7, 2013

 

This is Not  makeup tutorial. not up for an actual video picture tutorial. But if i ever were to make a  video makeup tutorial i would do it in this style. for I am a visual learning I need to watch ( non creeper like though) and then practice and correct as I go along.  I just like they way Get it Beauty does their tutorial. The format is very easy to follow I mean besides the fact that it is in Korean. Of course it would be in English, only language I know… I’m learning french but.. its not coming along well. But today is almost over and so is High school probably have better luck in college.  Anyway here is a video of what I’m talking about.  comment below.. tell me what you think.

E.L.F

Posted on July 9, 2013

 

E.L.F is having a sale on but there’s a catch which i hate.  you have to buy at least 25$ in product. but you get a free palette with 85 colors… ^ ^ but it ends tonight

on another note. I am merging this blog with my other blog to create one blog. so that way I don’t have to go back and fourth between blogs. but i intend to keep everything more up to date.

College orientation part 1

Posted on June 30, 2013

 

So..today was registration day. And I’m at the college and I’m doing pretty good…free food..pens…bags I just 2 things left to fill out…And then while waiting for my mother  I start to look around… It is starting to hit me that…omg I’m going to college…it hits me more when I realize the left over tuition is still pretty steep. Regardless…I’m looking around at my future class mates and everyone one looks like they belong they have that stereotypical high schooler look. For girls everyone is reasonably fashionable wearing short shorts. Tanks long hair. And they have young high school matured faces..And me? Laid back still haven’t grown since 8th grade..hell I look like I should be on the 8th grade. That’s a bit much but I look like I’m in the wrong grad year if that makes any sense. I  look like I should still be in high school. Like sophomore status… What’s wrong with me!?! I wonder to myself…I look so out of place… I know looking young is a gift and a curse but when your mother says things like “what do you mean “grow” you mean grow old” right or “Everyone thinks your sister is older” I want to flip a table… That maybe be dramatic but it’s to often she says that… e.e I’m not sure what to do..I’ve been burying this feeling for a while and I want to get over it. Yeah yeah I laugh at my sister when that happens and say you look old but..how do I get over looking the youngest even though I’m the oldest?

Summer sale

Posted on June 28, 2013

 

So I actually left the house today. Had To take my grandmother shopping…Man do I need stronger sunscreen.  Or a bad ass sunbrella (see what i did there :D ) Got a slight tan… e.e…ugh. Anyway here is who I feel is having a sale that’s worth checking out:
Strawberry : cute bags and sale on certain undies and clothes.
Claires : jewelry sale 10 for 10
Rainbow cute clothes depending on what it is it’s probably cheaper than strawberry.
Marshals: has a sale on juniors and depending on what marshals you go to a pretty sweet shoes clearance.
Payless: bogo some really cute my moments shoes with a sexy heels are on sale 20$
Fabco shoes(I  think that’s the name they have a Bogo sale everyday)

That’s all I remember atm I’ll post more when I do or if I go out again.
Shopping makeup:  eyeliner eyelid primer and foundation with spf 20.

Sale

Posted on June 27, 2013

 

just went to CVS and saw bright stickers every where. turns out there is a sale. well a final sale…I’m not sure if it in all CVS but it was my local CVS on only select items. 2013-06-27_19.10.27

I got 2 nail polishes for 99cents each. I wonder when the nail polish company will make nail polish that  smell sweet instead of harsh. it would benefit all the nail polish enthusiast and nail salon people…no longer would they have to wear masks! no longer will husbands threaten to jump out the window when you apply nail polish.

Also there is a sale at piper lime..e.e I.think that’s the name . But they is a sale on select items up to 65% off

Forever 21

Posted on June 24, 2013

 

before I start, they are having a semi-annual underwear sale. also some of their cosmetics are on sale. I recently bought 2 nail polishes for 99 cents each. ( only on certain colors) and i got an eyeshadow makeup set for 10.98 and that is when I realized the colors are to light but no returns on sale items so i am going to  have to find a way to brighten the colors or something. and they are still light even with primer. but the set it still cool and some of the colors like the blue are well pigmented.
