Happy Turkey Day!

Happy Turkey Day !! (Yes- it's Thanksgiving)
Gobble Gobble!

So during this holiday, people say what they are thankful for. This shouldn't exactly be something people do once a year, but more than that. BUT, at the same time.. once is better than zero right?

For those of you that celebrate Thanksgiving, what are you thankful for?
For those of you that don't celebrate it, what are you thankful for anyway?

This year I'm thankful for many many many things:
  1. I'm thankful for each and every one of you. For your support, for believing in me, for being a part of this wonderful youtube journey with me. I'm also thankful that I can inspire some of you and put smiles on your faces.
  2. I'm thankful for friends and family. Without them, well I wouldn't be here right?
  3. I'm thankful for online dating sites. I met my boyfriend on there, and I truly believe he is the one and only love of my life. 
  4. I'm thankful for my baby, Kuba (he's a dog), because he just makes me so happy and he certainly has the best personality ever.
  5. I'm thankful that Hurricane Sandy didn't do any damage to my house. Yes - i'm still evacuated from my dorm room, but at least I still have a place to stay for the time being. 
I can go on with my list, but I think those are my top 5!

Now to share with you all a little bit of my Thanksgiving day was like, first here is a picture of me and a video of my giving thanks to you and my outfit for this holiday. 

Now some pictures of the food on my table. For those of you that didn't have anything or couldn't go home to celebrate with my family, my heart goes out to you, and I certainly wish I could have shared this food with you!

Now that Thanksgiving is over, we whipped out the holiday cookies! Hahah well that's not the reason why. Reason is because they don't sell thanksgiving day ones with like a pumpkin or turkey on them! It's all holiday stuff once Halloween is over!

And the most delicious blueberry pie ever!

And a table full of dessert, and some appetizer thingies.... that you put out after dinner... not before like regular appetizers :)

So, once again, Happy Thanksgiving to you all, and I hope you all had a fantabulous day!

Gobble Gobble!

Stretch marks be gone!!

Hey everyone!

I know that many people have problems with stretch marks. Well not problems, but people are self-conscious of them. Whether they fear they're going to get them or whether they fear wearing a bikini to the beach because they already have them!

I'm one of those people that was like I never want stretch marks, and if I get them, no one will know because I will hide them so well!

Well... to prepare yourselves for the beach this summer.... we have like 8 months.... so start by making this stretch-marks be-gone cream. And apply it ideally day and night, but if you can't do both, then just do it at night before you go to bed. Do this EVERY day! And store the rest in your refrigerator. You should see improvements within the first month!

So here is the video!
(I know many of you that watch my videos are younger, and probably don't have stretch marks yet or won't get them at all, but if you know someone that has them, let them know about this video and recipe!)

And here is the recipe:

Cocoa butter is probably the best known home remedy cream for stretch marks.  It's healthy benefits include keeping the skin soft and pliable.  One homemade stretch mark cream recipe which includes cocoa butter is below.
  • 1/2 cup cocoa butter
  • 1 Tablespoon wheat germ oil
  • 1 Teaspoon apricot kernel oil
  • 1 Teaspoon Vitamin E oil
  • 2 Teaspoon grated beeswax

Heat mixture until beeswax is just melted.  Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.  Apply this cream to your stretch marks until desired results are achieved.

Join me on this journey of getting rid of our stretch marks and preventing them as well!

Good luck, 
xoxo Lina

My Atlantic city adventure !

So guys as some of you may know if you follow me on instagram (@linamariax3), or twitter (@linamariax3)... you know that I went to Atlantic City a few days ago. I vlogged as much as I could... but ya know.. the boyfriend is not used to the whole vlogging thing, so I did what I could. Hope yall enjoy this video! And after enjoy some pictures in this blog that weren't in the video :)

moving on with piccays :)

this is the hotel we stayed at, the Taj Mahal

In the hotel, above the bed there was a mirror! Can I like just put that in my room?!

This was the ceiling in the casino! So prettiful!

This is my boyfriend :)

This was all made out of glass! Isn't that amazing?! This I believe was in the Borgata hotel

Atlantic City had the BEST pina coladas i've ever had. I would definitely go back there just for another pina colada. 

Kisses for me in the casino :)

This was the oceanview from our room! Loved waking up to this!

My boyfriend and I on the beach in front of our hotel! 

The most amazing jacuzzi ever! They didn't have bubbles, so two little bottles of shampoo it was!

And as something to bring back home with me from Atlantic City, and a memory of my first getaway with my boyfriend, he bought me the dice charm for my Pandora bracelet that is only sold in either Atlantic City or Las Vegas. ! What a great charm to add to my bracelet! And at the casino.... i was playing with dice almost the whole time anyways!

I had an AMAZING little getaway with my boyfriend :)

I'm going to try...

To start keeping up with this blogging thing again. I always take SO MANY pictures of things... it's just that it takes forever to put them on my computer and onto my blog..

Actuallyy i'm going to try to see if I could write blogs from my phone... maybe when i'm on the train or the bus going places not doing anything else. 

Have ya'll missed my bloggies?

I'm sitting here today... i just got my nails done and they look so fab! 

AND i got them done for a few reasons;
1. My other nail polish was chipping majorly
2. I didn't feel like painting my nails
3. I'm going to Atlantic City tomorrow for the night
4. I LOVE the feet massages at the nail salon. 

So yes, i got a manicure and pedicure :)

Oh and I think I just broke my laptop. My shift key is totally like pressed into my keyboard... and now i'M going to have to make a a trip to Apple. GRRR

Hope you're all having a fabuloso day!

Makeup artistry!

So as you all know... or as you all should know.... in addition to my many titles such as student, youtuber, beauty guru, babysitter, sales associate... and whatever else I am....i'm also a makeup artist.

Do I work as a makeup artist EVERY day? No. But maybe one day I will. I'm slowly making my dreams come true. And in addition to what has already come true... i want to try to get a job at MAC and a MAC pro card. 

Until then... here are some pictures from my last makeup job which was just two days ago!

These were not professional pictures. This was the photographer's sister taking pictures because she was fascinated! Haha :D

All I know is that I love all things makeup and I love putting makeup on other people. If only I could do this every day of my life and have it pay my bills, it would be like i never work a day in my life but i have fun every day. 

Dreams do come true, you just need to make them come true and believe you can!

CRUMBS cupcakes!!!

So my friend and I met up at Crumbs to hang out.... and she had a cupcake waiting for me already!

This is the one my bestie got.... i don't know what flavor but I do know that it was very very sweet! Just like she is!

And I wanted the chocolate chip cookie dough, so that's what she bought for me!

I feel like these cupcakes are so much bigger than what I'm used to eating at Sprinkles! So much more decorative too! But all very delicious!!!

Have you guys noticed yet, that I LOVE LOVE LOVE cupcakes!? I feel like every other post, is me posting pictures of cupcakes haha!

Your cuppy-cake girl,

Pralines cupcake with sister!

Yes, another sprinkles cupcake!

My sister and I got one, because it was pralines and some other yummy stuff. I forgot what this one was called. 

It was a butter cupcake - I think, with icing on top dipped in pralines!
 I didn't know the icing was so soft... and creamy...
 And so i made this face because I was like "oh my gosh wow"
 And i'm showing you the massive amounts of icing now....

 And then my sister and I took a smiley picture!
 And a cute picture!

Sisterly fun with our cupcakes!!

NYX goodies!

These goodies I purchased from Hautelook!
I have talked about this many many times but for those of you that don't know - It's a site where you have daily deals at a great price! 

Sometimes they have Urban Decay makeup , sometimes Stila, and other times my favorite makeup brushes from Crown Brush. It's definitely worth it to sign up in my opinion and youu can always check back to see if there's anything you want to purchase!

It's free!

Now for the goodies I got from NYX when they were having a NYX cosmetics sale....

I got this cool thingy! With lots of eyeshadow colors!

AND some blush and lip gloss. The palette is like a book, and I turned the page :D

I also bought all of these amazing lip glosses! I LOVE the mega shine gloss from NYX - one of my favorite glosses!

And then I also got some pigments! Because I could never have too much makeup right?!

I love NYX makeup - I actually just love makeup all together!

Your makeup junkie,

Marshmallow bunny!

My sister likes to pose with bunnies.... marshmallow bunnies that is....

And then she likes to eat them....

I have to say though, that marshmallow bunny tasted disgusting!!! It was not a very tastey marshmallow! Next time I buy one of those, I'll keep it as a decoration!!

Marshmallow bunnies, 
your Lina

Heart sunglasses!

I like to have fun and hang out in the bathroom with my friend's heart sunglasses on, only because they matched my shirt!

Here I am saying, don't take a picture, but laughing at the same time!

YAY for bathroom fun! The new hangout location!!!

Do you chill in your bathroom too?!?!

I was the MUA for a photoshoot!

Since makeup artists can get away with wearing any kind of makeup and all sorts of crazy things, I went for blue lips and red eye makeup!

And yes - i have a tutorial on the eyes.... It may or may not be posted as of when this post is posted. Hha that sounded complicated, but makes sense right?

For my blue lips I used makeup forever's flash palette!

And here's my sister and I after I did her first makeup look for the photoshoot!

And here I an doing another makeup look on my sister!

I did makeup on another model as well... but the photographer didn't take a picture of that. At that point, he was so busy shooting the models! But it's all good because their pictures came out beautiful!

I don't have a video with their picture... but some were posted on my Instagram: Linamariax3

And if you'd like to see my pictures from my photoshoot.. watch this video...
I have to say though, the makeup I did on the models was a lot better than my own!

Anyways, that is all... hope you all enjoyed this post and a sneak peek into my modeling/makeup artistry life!

xoxo, Lina
