Cosmetic Eyebrow Tattoos…

SOOOOO I’ve been contemplating this for sometime now…

I KNOW I KNOW!!!… before you all get your panties (and briefs/boxers) in a bunch, I know it’s permanent…. BUT BUT.. I’m tired of drawing them on EVERYDAY!!!

Plus you’ll be happy to hear I’ve done my research and found a new kind called “Hair Stroke Eyebrow Tattoos.”  It looks totally natural cuz they actually draw HAIR where its sparse.  OH AND… its SEMI-PERMANENT!  It lasts about 3 years then you have to get it retouched again!  Here are some before and after pictures:

***MOST of them look natural….

But yeah… If I can get this done, it would save me SO MUCH TIME in the morning…. I mean I have some brows… but they’re very sparse and well… it looks non-existent from far away.

So what do you guys think??? EVERYONE please comment & tell me whether it’s a good idea or a bad idea.  I’m in Hollywood, California but willing to travel the LA County area if you have a recommendation on someone good!  All suggestions are welcome….

Guess who’s back????

aaaaaaaaaah got you!!! it’s just me 🙂

A couple things about the picture….

It’s JULY and YES… that is a CHRISTMAS WREATH hanging behind me.  We bought Christmas decorations last Christmas and we didn’t realize we’d have nowhere to put it after the holidays was over…. so yeahh… it’s been Christmas at the Robinson-Delacruz residence all year round :-), but we don’t mind.  We like it.  Christmas brings good cheers to everyone and our home always feels like a holiday anyway.


Okay… so many things to catch you guys up on.  As some of you may know, I’m off on Wednesdays now.  I haven’t had a weekday off (unless it was a major holiday) since I started working when I was 17 (I’m now 24 for those of you wondering!!)  I was a WORKAHOLIC and couldn’t bear the thought of losing one day of work cuz that’s one day less on my check.  BUT I’ve come to realize that money is not all that important.  I mean yes, I’m on my hustle, I’m on my grind and that’s a good quality trait there… but it’s not worth my sanity.  I started to realize I was working my butt off like if I had a family to feed or something.  I also realized that my 20’s are flying right by me and I need to slow down a bit.  Plus I also had to get used to the idea of not working so much cuz once I transfer to the University it’s gonna be school first and work second.

I feel I’ve accomplished some things in my life that not a lot of people my age have been able to do, so I’m not too worried about getting a late start with school.  (I took some time off to do some soul searching after highschool & stuff a.k.a partying)  BUT during these times, I figured out what I wanted to do with life which is what a lot of people have a hard time figuring out WHILE in school.  In turn, they end up taking a bunch of classes they don’t need because they realized that they wanted to change their major.

I’ve been trying my best to make my Wednesdays as productive as possible.  Mostly putting time and effort into the business.  I’m sitting here twiddling my thumbs at the moment though because all the inventory has been ordered and now I’m just waiting for them to get here so that the REAL work can start.  I’m SUPER excited and I just pray everything will work out for me.  My goal is to use this business to help me get by while I’m in school so that I don’t have to worry about working set hours.  I’ll be able to work from home!

OH YEAH you guys!  I’ve also made a BIG sacrifice.  I’ve turned my makeup room into my office!  I mean it’s still my makeup room… BUT now there’s a big giant work space table in there for me to do all my work on.  Plus its holding up my GINORMOUS 23″ monitor cuz after all, my business will be done on the computer so it’s only right I spoil myself a bit…. (lmao- I’m horrible)

I’ll take a pic of the re-done space once I clean it up.  It’s a big freakin mess.  The inventory is coming in little by little and I have nowhere to put it at the moment so it’s all over the floor and the table.

Alright I’m gonna sign off for now… be back later!

Accidental Lunch Time Haul…


So I went to grab some lunch today @ the Korean market & decided to peruse the cosmetics/bath aisle and found a couple interesting things!

First thing on the left is the Japanese Shiseido Perfect Oil Cleansing Oil.  Cleansing Oil is an AMAZING thing to clean ur face off at night and this piqued my curiosity.  I’ve tried a few and this was one I haven’t tried.

The bottle in the middle is a Japanese Shiseido misting spray.  I guess it’s suppose to do what MAC’s Fix + does.  You spray it on your face after you’ve done your makeup and it refreshes you.  It’s called face & body lotion on the bottle.  I tried it and I actually like the way it feels! 🙂  It keeps my makeup looking fresh throughout the day so YAY! I’m excited about it!

Then the bottle to the very right is a Japanese(?) or Korean(?) brand foaming face wash.  It’s PEACH scented and it smells WONDERFULLY PEACHY!  I couldn’t resist… it smelled too good.  I probably looked crazy at the store sniffing the tube a couple times before I threw it in my basket.

And last but not least, the infamous Glossimer I know none of you missed lying down across the picture.  That right there is my FIRST Chanel Glossimer in Sungold.  It’s ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.  And NO… I know all of you are wondering: “what grocery store sells Chanel?” hehehe… I got it from the cosmetics boutique NEXT DOOR to the market.  It was their last one and it was a total steal for $15 (retail: $27)!!! So ofcourse I said my 4 famous words “SURE I’LL TAKE IT!”  I’m loving the gloss. It’s so NOT sticky like other glosses… I have a feeling this is the beginning of a BAD obsession.  I’ve already gotten myself into a BAD EXPENSIVE obsession with balls… Guerlain Meteorites Balls (you nasty minded you!)

I feel prettttyyyy…. oh so pretttyyyyy…

I’ve been in a makeup and hair rut for a few good weeks.  Maybe even months.  It started with the makeup.  I was not putting any on! just foundation to even out skin tone and thats about it. NO eyebrows, no liner, no gloss (maybe some chapstick).  I got tired of looking at myself looking like death was looming behind me so I decided maybe if I get my hair done (digiperm), it’ll inspire me to start getting all made up again.  That didn’t happen.  I still went with my same old routine of throwing my hair  up with my lil hair stick.  The only difference was, it had a little more style than when I use to just tie it up and it would be stick straight.  I don’t know where the inspiration came from… maybe watching youtube tutorials? idk… but its back and I hope it’s here to stay… 🙂  This is me today:  Happy and Smiling!


and noooo… I’m not gonna list a breakdown of my FOTD.  If u wanna know just ask 🙂

Today is also my first day of using Guerlain Meteorite Balls on my face and its FAAAAANTASTIC!!! i LOVE it 🙂  It gives a nice finish as a setting powder.

A lil sumptin’ sumptin’ mmmm hmmmm

So I’ve been very bad at updating.  Especially my hauls and what not.  April was a busy haul month for me and hopefully i find some time to catch you all up to date.  May came and I slowed down on the spending cuz I just didn’t want anything anymore.  …… but of course that didnt last long.  Its now towards the end of May and I was walking around when I came across a lil boutique.  I went in, walked around and decided… EH =/  i could live without all this.  NO need to spend.  Just as I was headed out, a stack of pink boxes caught my eyes.  Sitting on top of it was the testers… lo and behold… there sat little mini Guerlain Meteorite BALLS!!!  I’ve been curious about these, but the price of the full size was what kept my curiosity in the bag.  BUT when I saw the set of THREE of their most popular colors, they stuck in my mind.  I didn’t initially buy it because I wasn’t sure if they were real.  I went back to a computer and did some research.  Turns out this set was an Asia exclusive and that it was not available in the U.S.  YEPPPP that kinda sold me over.  Having something not many have… 🙂  so of course, I went back after work and picked up a set for myself…  HERE ARE MY PRECIOUS:
