Wine drinking, I mean.... babysitting.

Babysitting looks a little something like this...
Kids putting my lipstick on...

And some scary amounts of white eyeshadow all around the eyes...

 Getting ghosted... which is this new thing kids do around Halloween time with their parents. It's like ding dong ditch.... but instead of just running away, you leave a goodie bag on the doorstep, ring the doorbell, run to the car, and go to the next house. I guess it's a little better than ding dong ditch.

 Then taking pictures of myself while the kiddies have some candy...

Kids putting my clothes on...

And finally, taking pictures together trying to fit the 3 of us in the picture.

 Oh and then some wine drinking fun... I swear I put apple juice in her cup, but she insists on it being wine haha.

Hope you're having a wine-filled day! Just kidding haha, drink up that apple juice!!!

Blizzard warning...

This is totally ridiculous, and the weather is bipolar here in New York. We went from having beautiful days where I could wear a skirt to the temperature dropping dramatically, a blizzard warning, and snow. Seriously?!
It's not even November yet, and it already snowed a few inches. This is going to be one very cold winter. I mean, it's not even winter yet, it's still fall! I'm used to not getting snow til after Christmas, you know late december, january maybe. And this year we got snow in October... HMPH. I was trying to enjoy this fall season!

Is is snowing anywhere else but New York?!

I love the snow and all... but it's too early for this.

Inspirations, dreams, future, & goals.

So I decided to make a scrapbook. When I was in target the other day, i saw this scrapbook and got the idea to cutout pictures and words from magazines that inspire me. That i'd like to be able to have in the future, and things that will give me goals and something to look forward to in my future. You know some motivation to want to work for these things. 

So this is what I have so far, because I ran out of magazines to cut up haha

as you can see the next page is mostly empty. -_-
but the whole scrapbook will eventually be filled, and when i look at it, i'll be inspired to do great things!

hope this inspires your heart, and helps you set goals for your future.

Halloween Costumes!

Don't know what to be for Halloween?
Well. while you're thinking of what you should be for Halloween, dress up your pets in the mean time!

I mean, I already know what I'm going to be, and I already bought my baby boy a costume too!
it may be pink and purple, but it's a Halloween costume.
It's from one of Disney's shows or movies, does anyone know which one? (i think it might be from Lilo & stitch and one of those evil creatures but i'm not sure haha, any help?)

YAY! Dressing up your loved ones (in this case my baby boy), in Halloween costumes and putting them in some halloween spirit! YAY! :D

Can't wait for Halloween,
a very excited me,

Behind the video... outfits (Syracuse)

A vlog video on my other channel, , which is my VLOG channel, durr.

 here are some of the outfits I wore while I was in Syracuse.

Casual outfit #1 by day:

Going out outfit #1 by night:
Sorry, i had no choice but to take a picture in the bathroom. It's just a dress, with a belt, and black tights.

Then I wore these shoes with the dress.... I did NOT wear red leggings LOL. 

Casual outfit #2 by day:
 If you noticed, this was in my OOTS Fall Fashion of 2011 video

Going out outfit #2 by night:

Just another dress. Of course, it has got to be cheetah/leopard print :D

So that's pretty much it. There was one more casual outfit the day I was leaving that I didn't get a picture of. But this will do! Maybe it'll give you guys some ideas for your casual and night time outfits. 

It's nice to be back in my own bed....
but not so nice to not be able to relax anymore

Mineral Cosmetics

Have any of you ever tried mineral cosmetics?

I remember, years ago, i tried some mineralized products and I hated them. Years later (today), i've decided to try them again when this loverly person contacted me telling me she makes them. And I was just so fascinated with someone making them on their own and thought it was the coolest thing ever, and decided to try them. She sent me a few to try out, and now here I am. In love with the mineral eyeshadows and sharing that with you all!

If you visit her webiste here, you will see all the many colors she has available. And the best part?! They're super super cheap! And I'm in love!

Here is a review on them, as well as some swatches!

Let me know if you guys want to see more reviews...

I'm going to be on TV!

No, I won't be playing in a show or a movie... but that would be soo cool! I'll be in a commercial!
I was contacted to make a video for an Abreva commercial/campaign. The video that will be on tv, I have seen already, but I'm not allowed to post it. 

COMMERCIAL TIMES... or the day rather.
DISH network- Channel 99- week of 10/24
DirecTV- Channel 112- week of 10/31
AT&T U-verse- Channel 87- starting 11/2 for 2 months
Also, on some cable networks you might come across Abreva banners in the channel guide that will click to video content. 

NEXT, I might be on Fox 5! 
This one is most likely some time this week, i don't know what day, i don't know what time, I don't know anything but the channel! On Fox 5 is my 5 seconds of fame saying "I want more good day new york", it was a promotional thing for a new show!

Keep an eye out for me! And I will be doing the same!

A super excited me because I get to be on TV, even if it's not a movie, or a show, but a commercial, and 5 second fox 5 fame, i'm okay with that! We all need to start somewhere right?!

It's not even Halloween yet, not even Thanksgiving, but KMART is already selling holiday and christmasy things?! I mean they're taking attention away from the other holidays.... but I do like Christmas....

So I took some pictures with and of these holiday goodies!
This looked so much better on my phone then it does on here...

I love Christmas trees! One day when I live in my own place, i'll have the biggest Christmas tree I ever had and decorate it... in neon colors?

Now, i'm just waiting for Starbucks to step up their game and start with the peppermint deliciousness.

Halloween Series, Costume #2

So I had a bright pink wig, that I bought from Kmart. It's called the Long With Bang Wig and it was only $10! SO I bought that just because it looked really cool and was super cheap, because normal wigs cost like $30 from an actual Halloween store.

Someone had said that I should do a candy girl look when I asked everyone what Costume look I could do with a hot pink wig. And I really liked the idea of Candy Girl and thought of doing mesmerizing swirly lollipop eye makeup! So that's what I did!

Products used:
  1. Hot pink wig - Kmart
  2. Painterly paint pot - MAC
  3. Makeup forever 12 color flash palette - Sephora
  4. Lollipops - Dylan's candy bar
  5. Coastal Scents 88 original palette
  6. Glitter - CVS (drugstores sell this stuff in the Halloween section around this time of year)
  7. Smolder eyeliner - MAC
  8. Voluminous million lashes mascara - L'oreal - CVS
  9. Blue glitter eyeliner, color Air Guitar - Urban Decay - Sephora
  10. Due eyelash glue - CVS
  11. Eyelashes #4 - MAC
  12. Brown eyeshadow for eyebrows - Brun - MAC
  13. Blush, Pink Swoon - MAC
  14. Second blush ( i added a lil brown) - equilibrium (limited edition) - MAC
  15. Bold pink lipstick - Girl About Town - MAC
  16. Metallic pink lipstick - rouge artist intense #10 - makeup forever - sephora
Hope you all like the makeup look as much as I enjoyed doing it!

Newspaper nails!

I have had my nails done like a newspaper in some of my previous videos, and many of you have requested a tutorial! So here it is!

I promise you, it's VERY SIMPLE! No nail art tools needed, because obviously we're not professionals here. It's as simple as can be.

FUN FACT: I was totally wearing my pajamas while filming this video.
Wanna know which ones? Yep those right below. Wanna buy them? Clicky here!

Also, I decided to post this highly requested nail tutorial instead of a Halloween look just because I realize that not everyone celebrates Halloween. This video at least all of you can enjoy rather then just the people that celebrate a holiday. I will be posting more Halloween looks soon though, just thought it'd be nice not to post 345678 Halloween looks all throughout october and nothing else. Hope you understand, and will be as considerate as I of others!

Products used:
- Sally Hansen insta-dri nail polish in Whirlwind white #120
- free newspaper (AM NY) - i cut out the horoscopes, doesn't hurt to have words of wisdom on your nails! or some inspiration...
- 91% alcohol, purchased from CVS
- glass cup
- Essie clear top coat

Good luck,
xoox, Lina

Stigma associated with BANANAS, I mean....

Alright, so, who here has a piercing say I! I say "I"! 
Do you have a belly piercing, your ears pierced, nose, lip, tongue, down there?
Whatever it is, YAY you have a piercing. 

Back in the day, or even in some cultures now, people pierce their noses like woah, it's a form of their culture and their traditions, with bars going across the top of their nose. We may think it's gross, but for them it's part of their way of life.

Ear piercings - in the USA, or even Europe, MOST girls have their ears pierced. It's just something that isn't even given a second thought anymore. It's like hey I have a baby girl, we need to get her ears pierced. Even guys get ear piercings. Not when they're little, but as they get older they do, with their own will, not their parents. And I personally think that ear piercings on men are sooooo dayum sexy!

Belly piercings - make you look sexy.

And tongue rings - people think you eat a lot of bananas. For those of you old enough.... you know what I mean by that.

I don't know why certain piercings are associated with doing the dirty. Just because someone has some sort of piercing doesn't mean they do any of the things associated with it. People just like to assume. Anyways, so I made this video, for you all, addressing a topic. Since so many people seem to have issues with my doing me.

You shouldn't care what other people think because chances are, their thoughts aren't even their own. They're just following what someone else thinks. And the chain goes on.

Flying Delta :D

So as many of you already know, I'm going to Syracuse tomorrow morning for Columbus weekend. I'm visiting my friend because she goes to school there and considering this a much needed mini vacation.

Since the airlines have become money grubbers.... They now only allow a carry-on bag and one personal item (purse, laptop bag)... for free. If I wanted to take a whole suitcase i'd have to pay $25.... Why is the US trying to take all my money?!

Anyways... since i'm flying Delta.... my carry-on is allowed to be 40lbs.. which isn't as bad as some of the other airlines that only allow 15lbs.... now then i'd be paying the overweight fee because i know my bag would not be 15lbs. 

So... i don't know if you guys would like a video on what to pack in a carry-on... like what you're allowed to pack...
Whether or not tweezers, scissors, razors, liquids....etc are allowed.

Let me know if you want to see a video on what I packed! And if you do... i'll just film it the day I come back and go through my carry-on with you all!!

Safe flight to me, 
xoxo, Lina

Jammies, messes, and halloween tutorial!

This morning, I woke up decided that i wanted to film a makeup tutorial for one of the seven deadly sins; envy. I wasn't even thinking about doing this for halloween to make a video for. I had two other halloween looks planned and this one just popped into my head. 

Anyways... so when I film makeup tutorials, my counter looks like this:
It's usually messier than this too. I took this picture after I already started cleaning. 

Anyways, back to my day. So when I film. there's always a zillion gajillion interruptions. Be it my mother on the phone, my dog barking at people, my sister needing to use the bathroom and the list goes on. But nope, today, although it was all of those things, there's a +1. Today, I had to take my sister to work,.. but no one told me. SO i had to drive my sister to work looking like Envy.... and i usually film in jammies on the bottom... so here's that loverly picture. It was also really cold in the morning which is why I threw on a fleece sweater. 
If only you guys could see my shoes. I was so matching today! Orange cheetah print socks, with neon pink vans. -_- so matchy i know!

Then when I FINALLY got back home with people staring at my makeup... I took a picture...
And you could see my tripod on the left.

Then I finally got around to editing with another zillion interruptions. Then uploading the video to my channel. And VOILA! Enjoy the video!

Who's excited for Halloween?!

I like....

to take pictures in the bathroom while waiting for class to start.
I was glad that the toilets at school were just cleaned. As you could tell behind me in the mirror, the toilet seats were up. I don't ever sit on the toilet at school or any public place anyway, but it's just nice to know they're clean and there is no pee all over the place, ew!

While in class... I like to take pictures of things that catch my eye. So in front of me was a guy, and underneath his desk was his backpack thing.

Even in college, you could wear whatever you like. and no one really cares. You could wear jammies to school or dress down with sweats and a tshirt. Or you could doll up, be fashion forward and wear makeup. It's personal preference. Me? Well, I ALWAYS wear makeup, but sometimes if I feel like it, I will wear sweatpants.

Today, wear whatever you want, do whatever you want to do as if no one is watching. Dance, sing, jump around looking crazy, whatever, who cares!! Just have fun :D

Happy Sunday!!
xoxo, Lina
