Finally Going Back!

I'm finally taking my butt back to the gym and watching what I eat! Its been months since I step foot in a gym. After not being able to hit my 165 mark I pretty much gave up and ended up gain a few pounds back nothing too much but it all went back to the stomach which is SAD!! I have to step my game up this time because its not going to be easy to lose the stomach fat and love handles. I'm going set mini goals for myself because I don't want to push myself too much and FAIL!! I have a pretty good support system so I'm not worry about that part. I think I'm going to take measurements this time to see if I'm making any progress. I'm also thinking about getting a personal trainer if the price is RIGHT!

Its getting late so I will check back with you guys later this week (:

Plucking My Eyebrow

I have been plucking my eyebrows for about 3 years now Thanks to my friend Von, who actually was the first person to show me how. I still get my eyebrow waxed if I'm being too lazy to do them myself. I have 2 ways I pluck my eyebrow it all depends on the mood I'm in...

1. E.L.F Eyebrow Stencil 
2. Trimmers
3. Eyebrow Tweezers
4. E.L.F Brow Brush
5. Maybelline Define-A-Brow Pencil in Dark Brown
6. NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk

1st Way

1.The first picture is my brows undone not a cute look!
2.Taking my eyebrow brush, I brush the hairs upward to see the unwanted hairs. I also do this to see how I want to arch my eyebrows.
3. Taking my trimmers i cut the hair that has grow out too long 
4. Now that I've done that I just pluck the unwanted hairs and to make the hair come out smoothly I apply some face wash or lotion to the area first and then pluck.
I use this method 
 when I'm in a rush and need to clean up my brows real quick

2nd Way

1. Taking my stencils I place it on my brows until I found the right arch that I want.
2. Using my NYX Milk Pencil I fill-in my brow with the stencil still on my brows, you can use a regular white pencil.
3. Now using my brow brush I brush the hairs upward to see the hair that needs to be plucked
After than I wipe the product off to brush the hair back down

I normally just highlight my brows using
MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer in NC50
or WetnWild shadow (label 1)

 I normally don't fill in my brows but I decided to this time using Maybelline Brow pencil
Right-MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer & Left- WnW Shadow
The pictures on the ends show my right brow fill-in and the left undone
and the middle is my brows fill-in

Rocking A Turban

I'm soooo in love with Turbans right now!! I decided to try and wear one today. I hope I don't look OH plus I fill-in my eyebrows today tell me what you think!

Skin Issue & New Product

Hey Guys, yet again I'm dealing with skin issue!!
For at least 3 months my skin has been going crazy! Its been breaking out and leaving crazy ass scars. I  wanted to go to a dermatologist, but I really don't want to spend the money. After reading Tierra from Bad Hair Day post about using to help deal with her acne, I decided to give it a try. I hope that it can help clear up my skin, I know it can't help with the acne scars I'm not sure what can help with those yet. However I will keep Hope Alive (: I've been using this for 4 days now. I can say that the Benzoyl Peroxide has been helping so far with my current pimples. I will keep you guys posted.
