Bowling :]

Me and the BF went bowling yesterday! It was sooo much fun! I hadn't been in such a long time so I didnt know what to expect as far as my bowl-ability skills... Heres how we started off:

If you notice I started off with 2 strikes in my 1st 3 bowls! He wasn't as good as I was to begin with, so I gave him a few pointers and here is what happened a little later:

He's beating me by one! Ugh. I should have never given him those pointers.. (He still didn't get any strikes though, and I have! Skills baby ::runs fingers through hair::) I'm so competitive,lol.  So I tried to turn up the heat a bit......Buuut I still lost..by two points!! Lord, why do guys have the ability to pick up sports (is bowling a sport?) at the drop of a dime?? Garrrr.....

Heres the victor:

(He's camera shy)

We also bowled and that was a lot of fun to, pretty quick though. Cause I crushed him in pool! (sorry babe, I had to gloat after that competitive bowling) I had all my balls in the pockets before he even had one, must have been a crazy fluke, 'cause I've seen him play pool before and he's really quite good.

His WHAT?! How-the-hell-did-that-not-go-in face :]

Mac Goodies!


Lol, I always get so excited when the UPS man comes to my house with a package :] ( Side note: My UPS guy is such a sweetheart... he always gives my doggy a little organic dog treat! )

I decided to start a MAC e/s palette! However I LOVE LOVE LOVE pigments; which is why i just made a impulse purchase of a few pigments from TKD Trading. I found out about them thanks to Lily who points to Tao as being an enabler for providing such gorgeous swatches, lol. on Tao's blog she talks about loving these piggies more than MAC, so I’m sure they have amazing quality products, I cant wait to get my order in! :]

This whole MAC haul was sparked by the F&F sale (of course) I had always shyed away from MAC e/s since I had my 120 palette, but i decided it was time to make my own! Not to mention that when I swatched Expensive Pink in the store I fell in love.
Then I saw a pic with Kim K. wearing a gorgeous gold e/s and she said it was MAC's Goldmine, so I just HAD to get that one to try it out too. Not necessarily just 'cause Kim was wearing it, but b/c I LOVE gold! :]
So heres what I picked up:

A MAC pro e/s palette ( 15 pan )

A MAC e/s palette ( 4 pan, i needed this to push my total over for free Shipping!)

MAC e/s in (top pic order):

Expensive Pink



Sushi Flower


Amber Lights

Aannnddd some swatches (sorry, my camera isn't the best):

(Top-Flash, Bottom-No flash. E/s L to R: Vanilla, Sushi Flower, Expensive Pink, Goldmine, Cork & Amber Lights)
Don't mind my fugly scar, I had a 2 second battle with my hair curler and guess who lost... needless to say I've been using Michelle Pham's method of no heat curling to get my locks wavy without having to suffer another early morning 2nd degree burn, hah. Plus no heat is a good thing for my ends!

L'Oreal is racist.

"French cosmetics giant, L’Oreal, who has hired Beyonce and other African-American
personalities to front their products is in hot water. It’s ok for us to peddle their products but not ok for us to work behind the scenes
. The highest court in France determined that executives at Garnier, L”Oreal’s beauty products division, intentionally created an all-White sales teams to promote their shampoos throughout the country, according to TimesOnline.com. Blacks, Asian and Middle Eastern women were hardly ever considered for hostess positions.
In fact, a fax was issued into evidence that requested hostesses must be between 18-22 years old, wear a European size 38-42 and be BBR. Apparently, BBR stands for “bleu, blanc, rouge” or French for “blue, white, red” the colors of their French flag which is also code for white people. This ends a three-year legal battle for the L’Oreal bosses who apparently were “disappointed” by the court’s decision. They will now have to pay 30,000 Euros in fines and another 30,000 in damages.-WLW"

It's always very upsetting to hear something like this. I had never heard of these allegations prior to reading this article and this is a complete shock. It's unreal to think that in this day and age there can still be groups of people who are so ignorant. Especially in the beauty world, we should realize that there is beauty across all races and this type of ignorance only makes those who harbor such feelings look downright ugly. I myself can vow to never buy another L’Oreal item... there are other brands with similar products minus the prejudices.

The King of Pop has died.

(Image credit: Concreteloop.com)

The L.A. Times has officially confirmed that Michael Jackson has died.

I got news only about an hr ago when I flipped on CNN. It's so sad, as I'm writhing this I can't fully believe he's gone. 

Apparently he collapsed earlier today in his home, and was taken to the hospital suffering cardiac arrest. It was then reported that he was in a coma; then not more than 20 minues later they confirm he died.

I can remember walking through the market in EL Salvador about a year ago and hearing MJ's songs blaring from the speakers of the corner CD vender. I got 3 albums for a buck .50 (Sorry MJ! It was a good deal =/) 

He was really such an amazing artist, and despite the controversy that followed him his true fans always loved him; including me. Anyone who knows me knows I LOVE M.J., Music has always been an outlet for me, and as a Graphic Designer music brings me so much inspiration - I can't believe hes gone. I loved to listen to his music, and loved even more to WATCH him. His dance skills made me so envious! He was a musical genius damnit! I love him so much and I really can’t believe it. His relevance will withstand the test of time and he is hands down, the KING of pop and will always be. No one single artist has come close to MJ. I still can't believe him, even my mom called me to tell me how sad and unexpected this was. 
I’m sure this is horribly written but I just wanted to let of my thoughts as they came to mind.

Ask Ursula!

I read Concrete Loop every day, like- religiously! It’s a great site that showcases the latest info on black artists, actors, celebrities and the like. It's a really refreshing site because they never have anything malicious to say and are just delivering the latest info without the added drama! 

Anywho... Ask Ursula is a great series that they have where readers submit hair care related questions and Ursula answers them. Ursula is a famous celebrity hair stylist who is nice enough to share her wealth of information with Concrete Loop readers. So far she has done 3 installments of the "Ask Ursula" series, and you can read those here, here and here. Thanks to her second installment I found out about Miss Jessies' curl line, which is AMAZING. Wavy/Curly hair is so tough to find good products for and this line works wonders for me :]

You can sumbit your questions here (in the comment area) and check back for answers soon!

Sooo, it’s been awhile but I just HAD to write about my most recent purchase. Since Mac is having there Friends & Family sale I decided to finally start an eye shadow palette! I've always been more of a lippie/blush person, but since its summer time I decided to get some new fresh colors to play with! I purchased a 15 pan palette and 6 eye shadows. I wont say which ones just yet - I'll save that for another post :] Now I just have to wait till my package gets here... and I hate waiting! =/
