What Is It About Me That Attracts Animals To My House?

I know this post isn't "beauty" related, but it does have to do with my life & I feel doing good deeds should be recognized in hopes that it may spread inspiration to others! Doing good is contagious! At least in my eyes.

For the past year 1/2 multiple kittens & puppies have somehow found their way to my house! I have fed & nurtured everyone of them. & Most of the times found homes for them. Recently though, the ones I was closest too have found their forever home.

I am soo excited & happy for them, but I can't help but miss them. I thought I would share some photos of the recent crew I had to say goodbye too! OoooOOO, that rhymed! :D

If you follow me on Instagram or on Twitter you may have seen some/most of these pictures!

Allow me to introduce Awsten's favorite little feline, we called her, Willow Smith.

I found this little lady hiding in a tree in my backyard back in December. She was terrified & tiny. I was so freaked that she might not be able to get down, that I called Awsten & asked if I should call the fire department
 -___- Heh. She, however, did get down just fine. She was one of the most loving kittys I have ever met in my life. She deserves the world. We wanted to keep her, but just couldn't. I also just couldn't bear seeing her on the streets anymore. She recently, this past weekend, found her forever home! <3 I am so happy for her. We'll miss you Willow!

I probably should've cropped the picture above, heh, but I like that my cat Romeo is semi in it :P

Also, this past weekend we found homes for these ADORABLE wiener dog puppies!
                                   As seen on my Instagram: Danger0usperson
                  There were two boys and a girl (the little black and brown one in the middle!)

There mama lives across the street from me, with some strange man. He always has a new dog & just lets them roam all around in the street, in the heat or in the cold. I have seen these dogs almost get run over & have almost ran them over myself D: When I saw she had puppies & new the temperature was rising I just couldn't bear the thought of them out there!

Luckily, I talked to their owner & he was cooperative & said if I could find homes for them then I could give them away for free! And we did!

                                             Below is the last picture I took with these little ones,
                                             I swear this little boy was after my heart! <3

This little lady below (asleep in Awsten's lap) was definitely after Awsten's heart as well!

                                                              D'AWWWWWWWW! <3
I guess my point of this post, MY MORAL OF THE STORY, so to speak, is that these animals were pretty much given nothing from day one & yet, were sooo extremely loving & trusting to people they hardly knew. Something that so many of us lack, trust. We as people, as humans, & as "the smarter breed" need to do more to help these creatures. There are soo many homeless animals out there & shelters are being filled up and are over capacity. 

Next time you see an animal wondering the street, perhaps see if it has a collar or take it to a shelter or vet to see if it has a microchip, maybe it has a home. Or maybe take that animal in and help find its forever home.

Long time no BLOG!

Hey Guys! Forgive me for being so MIA on this blog lately. I have been having some "technical difficulties with it lately -______- It won't let me upload my own personal background of choice D: 

  • Anyone have any idea of why this is happening to me? 
  • Also, I'm not too familiar with this site at all yet, so if you have any tips on how to decorate my blog, make it more personal, please let me know! <3

Another thing! I've been wondering what type of posts I should post on here. Any suggestions? No suggestions are bad!

                                                       Thanks lovelies!

Taylor Swift Speak Now Tour Makeup Tutorial/Look!

     I am always being compared to Taylor Swift, which truthfully I cannot stand! I love her & am a huge fan, but I just don't like the idea of being compared to another human being, I want to be seen as my own self.

     Recently, I went to the Taylor Swift Speak now tour in Houston. She was incredible live, definitely blew me away. The whole time I was watching her I could not get over how much I adored her makeup! So much so, that I decided to try to recreate the look! :)

Hopefully you guys enjoy!

Above is a close up photo taken of the look, I am completly in love with it. I love natural/neutral eye looks & love glitter-why have I not thought to use both together before?! <3

Items used:
  1. Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow/Liner, I used the color "RSVP" as an all over lid color.
  2. Urban Decay Naked Palette, I used the color "naked" for a crease & outer corner color. 
  3. For the glitter all over the lid I used a Candy Glitter Eye Liner in the color "disco ball."
  4. For eyeliner I just used the Maybelline line stiletto, in a black color. (Not too fond of this liner).
  5. Mascara, on the upper lashes is Hard Candy's Lashaholic, & on the bottom lashes is Cover Girl's Natureluxe mascara (which I got at the concert :D <3)
  6. On my lips, which is hard to see, is a Korres Lip Butter in Pomegranate. 

If you want to see how I achieved this look, check out my video below! <3

New Christmas Video!

FINALLYYYY, my what I got for Christmas/Things I bought myself video is up on my YouTube Channel! I had a great Christmas this year! Full of love & laughter & true gift giving. I spent my Christmas at my boyfriend Awsten's house this year, because my parents were out of town. Awsten's mom made me feel part of the family! She reminded me of the true meaning of Christmas. Not to sound cliche or anything, but she did! She took me into their home, made me feel a part of the family, she was so generous with me. She had gifts for me to open on Christmas morning with the rest of the family. It was sooo sweet! I also after Christmas bought myself numerous items (many on sale!!<3), my mom also bought me a few things before & after Christmas. Awsten was great at getting me things that I have been wanting for a while now!<3 I hope you guys all had a great Christmas & New Year! Good luck with your new year as well! <3

Recently, over this holiday break I have been catching up & having numerous marathons of one of my favorite shows! PRETTY LITTLE LIARS! <3 If any of you have watched it (which I'm sure a lot of you have) you know how addicting this show is. 

Last season I missed a lot of episodes because of work and school & my ever-growing busy-ness! I had a blast catching up with the season. The show has matured & progressed a lot. I definitely recommend it to anyone who is curious about it & has yet to watch it! Just be warned that in every episode so much happens & a new piece of the puzzle is revealed, it would be best to watch the series from episode 1!

I took this picture of my boyfriend Awsten while we were watching PLL. It was so cute, he was getting all into the episodes, trying to guess what was going on or what was going to happen next. Haha, but he wouldn't admit that he was into the show :P

First Outfit of the Day picture for 2012!

                              Currently, I am totally IN LOVE with everything in this picture. 

  • The shirt (which I know isn't shown much) is from the store Cotton On (I wasn't able to locate it on the site, but they have a lot of other really cute items!) It is a loose fitting black shirt around the torso and chest, but tight on the arms. It is totally comfortable. 

  • My nail polish is from Orly, I bought it at Ulta. The name escapes me right now. It is pretty much a lime green matte looking polish. Totally an eye grabber.

  • The bracelet is from Juicy Couture. I absolutely love it. My employer got it for me for christmas. its definitely an everyday type of bracelet, but could also be worn on special occasions. 

  • ANDD last but certainly not least! My shoes. I LOVE these shoes. Best purchase I have made in quite some time. I got these at Dillards (a store that I never walk into). I was very surprised to see that they had such cute shoes. I love bows and love the look of these. Very balet-esque. So incredibly comfy as well. They can be dressed up or down. :) I believe the brand was called Big Buddha. 

I'm new to this.

So I decided that I may start a blog. Not necessarily just for my YouTube account & just about makeup and fashion. But also as a way for you guys to get to know me, & perhaps connect with me on a different level :) this will take some time getting used to, for sureeee.
