Color contacts!

Sometimes we all wish like we could change our eye color. I personally have brown eyes, and MOST people have brown eyes. Sometimes I just want to look a little different so thank goodness for the invention of contact lenses!

So there are two contact lenses I got from this website here:
My first choice was the Geo Tri color green contact lens
This is what they look like on my brown eyes
And second I got the Geo Hurricane blue contact lens
And again, this is what they look like on my brown eyes

For more information on how to take care of your lenses whether they're colored or not. How to put them in, and how to take them out. As well as a coupon code for you to get lenses....watch the video! :D

Happy shopping with a discount!

Hurricane Irene

Have any of you lived through a hurricane before? I have no idea what to expect, i've never seen this before. I mean, i'm from NY, we don't tend to get hit that often, but when we did in the past, it was pretty bad.

Now what i'm thinking is that it won't be that bad. I've taken all the safety precautions like filling up my car with gas (though if there's a flood, i'm not really going anywhere) and stocking up on food. As for boarding the windows... well we didn't do that. I just know I'm not sleeping in my room, because if the trees around me fall, they fall right in my room. So i've pretty much taken the safety precautions I can, also buying candles and matches... and my dad has some flashlights somewhere.

But you know what, I think the news is making it seem extremely bad. They don't want to be responsible for what happens and are telling us the worst case scenario so that everyone is prepared, because no one really knows what to expect. Although hurricane Irene was a 3 at first of how strong it was, it has died down to a 2 yesterday, and a 1 today. How bad could it possibly be?

Thing is, no matter what happens all we can do is be as prepared as possible. We can't stop mother nature. So even if it rips my roof off of my house, and my house floods, what can I do but run and get to a safety shelter? Sure starting over will be extremely hard and i'll think it's impossible, but it can be done. People have started over in New Orleans and Japan. We truly don't know what we're capable of until we're put in that situation. I'll be hoping for the best, and hoping that no severe damage is done. But i'll stay strong even if I have to start all over. 

Here's to surviving this hurricane in one piece in your own house, may there be no severe damage...

Sweep over your whole eyelid with this very light peachy color:
Then take this light pink, and put on the outer half of your eyelid:
Put this reddish pink into your crease and the outer v:
Focus the dark purple intou your outer v, but blend into the crease:
Blend out any harsh lines with the light pink pictured above ^ (eyeshadow picture #2)

New jammies!

On my break at work today, i discovered these pretty jammies! 

And guess what?! It's ONLY $29.50 for BOTH pieces. for a pajama set like that from PINK, that is pretty cheap. Also, on top of that, you can wear the two separately and make it look like a regular t-shirt, or like any ol' leggings!

Maybe the saying on the t-shirt isn't for everyone. 
My sister said to me "only if that was true" & mommadukes said "maybe not study less, but yes party more" haha gotta love em. 

They also have different sets if you don't like the one above:
that tshirt looks like jammies though. 
this one implies basically that you just got out of bed and wana go back to sleep. 

yeah i don't like this one. 
polka dots! right hand on the black dot, left hand on the other black dot!

new jammies and lookin all cute,

Splish Splash!

My day at Splishy Splash was great. Just wondering though, is Splish Splash just a NY thing or is there a splish splash waterpark other places too?

Well I thought I'd share with you all my day. Although we didn't take pictures, because we're not going to take our camera on a water ride lol, but the people we were with (partially my family, partially my cousins family) bought piccays. So here are some piccays:
My cousin on the left, my sister in the back on the right, and me in the front on the right.

My cousin in the back on the left. My cousin's aunt in the front on the right. The aunt's daughter in the front on the left. My sister in the middle back. And me in the back on the right. 

So that was my day at Splish Splash. Can't believe I haven't been there in over 3 years, there's like a whole new addition to the park now and another new ride and a second wave pool!

My splish splash adventure,

Highway discovery

So the other day when I went out with my sister, one of my best friends, two of my best friend's friends and I, they took us to a park by the highway. I guess it's not really a park but kind of, there was a path and everything, and we walked under a bridge and along the highway, and waved to people. But I thought I'd share this with you all because I never knew there was anything like that!
This was my view from where I was sitting on some thingie that I don't know how to explain!

This is what I saw to my right side while sitting, lots of bushes!

This is where I was sitting looking pretty and waving to cars that passed by!

Now my sister took another picture for me because I didn't really like the other ones. hehe

And here is the park like thing. I took a picture of my best friend (she doesn't know I posted this picture haha but she'll see it I think). We kept walking down but then got creeped out and scared that some animal would jump out at us hah. I guess we'll never know what was at the end of this path.

Waving to cars,

Hats gallery!

Who doesn't love hats? <aybe you like winter hats in the summer, or fedoras in the winter. Maybe you like to wear them in the "right" season, or maybe you just like all kinds of hats and instead of having names, they should just be called hats.

So here's an awesome hat! I really wanted it, but I didn't get it, it's from JCpenny, and oh the guy on the right is my cousin from Poland :D

 Here is an awesome ed hardy hat, Although It says "true til death" I really liked the design and I couldn't resist not getting this hat. AND it was on sale too! It was 50% off, and then I got another 40% off of that. So I only paid around $30 for an originally $100 priced Ed Hardy hat. 

Here I am wearing my awesome new hat! And let's not forget the shirt. The very sheer shirt that I've wanted forever is from American Apparel and it's pretty darn awesome! Everyone loved it! And the cool thing is that you can dress it down, or you can dress it up!

Memories and hats, 
xoxo, Lina

Newspaper creativity!

Just think about the many things you can do with things that lay around your house. I just did newspaper nails! I love them! They're so creative, and no one will probably have the same nails as you, they'll just be like WOAH BABY!

So this was my first attempt at newspaper nails, and surprisingly they're actually pretty simple!
Aren't they so cool!?

Question of the night (for me) or maybe day (for you):
Do you guys want a tutorial on newspaper nails?!

Let me know , and if you do , i'll gladly make a tutorial :]

Newspapers and horoscopes,

Dealing with meanies.

So I'm sure many of you that make videos on youtube have come across some haters. And even if you don't make youtube videos, what about the mean girls at school? Or the boys that tease you? Either way, we have all at some point in our lives experienced some kind of hate, even if it comes from our own family members.

I'm here to tell you to IGNORE the mean comments.
People that hate, or say mean things, are people whose own lives are terrible. People who are jealous of you and just want to see you come crashing down. Basically, people that have issues and want to put someone else down to make themselves feel better. Generally (as I have learned throughout my years of learning about psychology) those people have extremely low self esteem). SO you know what, think to yourself that you are better than them, that you have great things going for you. Don't let that ONE or a few people bring you down with their hate, there's many others that will give you love. Instead of thinking about the hate, think about how you hope one day they'll have a life as great as yours.

OR instead of ignoring the comments, acknowledge them, know that they're there, but don't let them get to you. Laugh at it, think of a comeback, but keep the comeback to yourself. You don't want to say anything back to them, because that's giving them attention. And that's exactly what they want, so don't give it to them!

Just laugh, like I do. I tell my sister the hate I get, and we just sit there laughing.

So for those of you just starting on youtube, don't be discouraged. More people will love your videos than they will hate them. And the hate, Laugh, ignore, and keep making videos! I love you all, so if you have any hate, need some advice, or someone to talk to, feel free to e-mail me (linamariax3@aim.com) and i'll be there for you all.

Love you all,
xoxo, Lina

Hello Kitty nails!

Yep, I've blogged about my hello kitty nails before. And I also think I blogged about how I was going to make my video and then Kandee Johnson posted her hello kitty nail tutorial. Who knew we were thinking of the same thing?!

Well before you say, I copied her... I'm just here to say I didn't. I'm not like that. There's no point in my making the same videos as everyone else... unless I do mine differently and have my own take on it!!
These are what mine looky like!

So I hope you all enjoy my version of hello kitty nails that everyone was so amazed I painted on my nails and didn't stick them on!

Here's the tutorial for you all!

Let's get hello kitty-fied!

Let's hope no one takes this the wrong way...

Well there's always going to be people that judge you. And I'm aware of that. But i don't think its fair to judge a person without knowing someone. Just like you can't judge a book by it's cover. 

With what i'm about to tell all of you that read my blog/follow my twitter/ and joined my facebook family, I'm only hoping that none of you will judge me. Though I know some of you will because we live in a world where we can just look at someone and already know if we like them or not, or if we even want to talk to them. 

But here it goes, 
I got my tongue pierced.

I have posted on facebook that I wanted my tongue pierced. A lot of you said no at first, and some of you said that it's up to me. For those of you that said it's my decision, or to do whatever I want, thank you. Because those of you that didn't say no are less likely to judge me now. For those of you that did say no, well I hope you all don't judge me.

For what it counts, my mother did know I was going to get my tongue pierced. Although i'm almost 20, i told her anyway instead of hiding it. It's always better to tell anyway. Although she didn't exactly want me to get it pierced, she came to terms with it because I told her.

It was my decision, and only my decision. I've had people ask me if i want the piercing or if someone wants me to get the piercing. Well let me tell you that this was all me. No one told me to get it done, no one made me do it either. 

Why did I do it? I've wanted a tongue piercing for a while now. I think i was 15 or 16 when i first wanted it. I personally just think it looks pretty. Also, since I can't have anything else pierced for work like my cartilage or my nose (yes i took it out), i figured a tongue ring is perfect since you can't really see it. I mean, how many of you noticed it in my recent video? I bet you none of you noticed. 

It's not something I'm going to go around telling people i got my tongue pierced and I'm not going to walk around with my tongue sticking out. But I figured I'd tell all of you, because sooner or later someone will notice it on camera. At least you all know the story now. 

Think, before you judge.

Dress to impress?

So i'm sure all of us at some point in our life spend hours in front of our closet trying to find the perfect outfit for that very special date. Even men (though most won't admit it) spend more time getting ready if they really like the girl (or guy). 

I yesterday actually was already wearing this outfit. 
Before I knew I was going out i was just wearing this already. Though once I found out i was meeting up with someone, i added some more blush (because it was like already 11pm at night), and did something with my hair. In the picture above i didn't have any eyeliner on yet... but then i thought i needed some. 
So then with some eyeliner i looked like this :D

My point is that most of us want to look good all the time. Sometimes we may try hard and get compliments, or sometimes just a widdle bit of effort gets us compliments as well. So you don't need to stress over how perfect your makeup needs to look, and how cute your outfit needs to be. 

When going out, don't be someone you're not, but be yourself. Yourself is what's going to get you a second date not your wardrobe. 

Let's live stress free, 
xoxo, Lina

the HAIL storm.

Throughtout almost my whole life living in New York, i have never ever seen a storm this bad. We had hail! Thankfully i wasn't in the area where they had hail the size of fists (which broke people's sunroofs... it was on the news). Where I was there was smaller hail, but I ended up being stuck on the train for an EXTRA hour and a half and missed work. 

So first it just started pouring rain...

 Then we got some hail. Keep in mind that I wasn't standing right next to the hail taking a picture. I was on a double decker train on top) so the actual size of the hail (the white stuff) was probably bigger. 

 Then while the rain was slowly calming down and no more hail, the sun started peeking through the clouds.

Then when I got home (20 minutes away from the storm)... it was almost completely dry there. No hail, no giant rainstorm, just a little drizzle. I was like WHAT?! haha i wish i could have just been home earlier that day so I wouldn't have to have been stuck in the storm and miss work. But hey, things happen for a reason right.

Hail and rain,
