Tag: My boyfriend explains the purpose of Make-up

Hey..
 I recently read Laura from Buy now/blog later for a while and when I read this post I knew I just had to see if The Boy had been paying any attention at all to me.
You can read Laura’s post here
 If you want even more laughter you can read the original post from Kirsty from Life in Excess here

 Or watch Marnie Goldberg’s video here

The premise is simple – list out a series of beauty products and then sit back and listen to the perception of their purpose. He was given the products to view and was asked to describe their purposeI did hope that he would have some sort of knowledge about makeup.

Primer
It primes your face for the application of makeup

Foundation
Apparently it’s a mild sunscreen and it sets the skin to the same color as your skin

Powder
I’m not understanding this. Why do these all do the same thing?!? Helps to hide the pores

Concealer 
I’m seriously so confused. Why do they all do the same thing? I seriously have no idea. Finer point that the others

Blusher
You put it on your cheeks. I have no idea what it does. It adds color to your face. (Benefit box powder)

Highlighter
You could get high off it. (Powder consistency) item to make your skin healthy

Mascara
It elongates your lashes, highlight your lashes

Eyeshadow
Eyeliner? Eyeshadow …it applies color to your lids and makes you look beautiful.

Eye kohl/liquid eyeliner
tracing your eyes along the top and bottom edge of your eyes

Brow pencil
I don’t know..mascara for eyebrows to get them into a shape that you prefer

Lipstick/Lipgloss
draw attention to your lips, keep it pretty, shiny and moisturized

 

Now it’s over to you. I seriously urge you to try this with your other half and when you do try and keep a straight face with no laughing 🙂 By the way I didn’t tell him what they did 😉

Thanks for reading!

 

Looking for Alaska

Looking for AlaskaLooking for Alaska by John Green

Before. Miles “Pudge” Halter is done with his safe life at home. His whole life has been one big non-event, and his obsession with famous last words has only made him crave “the Great Perhaps” even more (Francois Rabelais, poet). He heads off to the sometimes crazy and anything-but-boring world of Culver Creek Boarding School, and his life becomes the opposite of safe. Because down the hall is Alaska Young. The gorgeous, clever, funny, sexy, self-destructive, screwed up, and utterly fascinating Alaska Young. She is an event unto herself. She pulls Pudge into her world, launches him into the Great Perhaps, and steals his heart. Then. . . . After. Nothing is ever the same.

So how’s this…I finally start of 2014 by jumping straight in with a book review. A life update will hopefully come later this week. I failed at my GoodReads goal for last year, but I can’t say that my life was not awesome. Let’s get the show on the road with the book review though. I just finished Looking for Alaska by John Green. This is one of John Green’s most famous books to date. It’s a New York Times best seller and a Michael L. Printz award winner not to mention that it is probably one of the most quoted books on Tumblr.

I don’t  even know if that summary even did the book any justice. The book is divided into mainly two parts the before incident and the after incident. I could subdivide the book into more parts such as the before boarding school, at boarding school before, at boarding school after, and end of school year. I’m trying not to give too much of the book away because SPOILER a character dies.  I love the way the book is written in a very adult form that does not bs the reader. It also does not glorify the incident by any means. The incident is just as it is an incident. The book is written in such a way that even though you are left wondering about that happened to Alaska like Pudge you know that there is no answer and the more you search the farther away from the truth you are. I applaud John Green for writing this book and is my favorite out of all the books of his that I have read. Below are a few of the more famous quotes from the book:

“Imagining the future is a kind of nostalgia” “You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you’ll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.” p.54
“…thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane.” p. 88
“Night falls fast. Today is in the past,” p. 89
From The General in His Labyrinth “He was shaken by the overwhelming revelation that the headlong race between his misfortunes and his dreams was at that moment reaching the finish line. The rest was darkness, “Damn it,” he sighed. “How will I ever get out of this labyrinth!””p. 155
“How will we ever get out of this labyrinth of suffering?-A.Y.” p 158

I definitely recommend that you read this book. I almost bought another copy of this book just so that I could have the new anniversary edition that’s out in stores now! *Fingers crossed * I’ll be back with another post for you tomorrow!

Sunday Confessions v 1.9

Today I’m once again linking up with Alyx from Every Day is a New Adventure. I have not done one of these in a while and I’ve missed it.

1. I’m very curious as to why the lovely Alyx’s blog hasn’t been showing up in Bloglovin’ so I can link with her. It’s been bumming me out 🙁

2. Today I went to the salon and got my hair done and I absolutely love it. They were also doing a photo shoot at the salon today perhaps for their website so things were crazy.

3. I actually do have a bunch of posts lined up, but life has been crazy and I will tell you guys very soon. I can’t right now though, it just doesn’t seem right. I have been posting pretty regularly on my tumblr though since I’ve been doing the 30 day green smoothie challenge which I’m almost done with.

4. I think that it’s really strange that I’m in love with berry colored items lately.

5. I can’t believe that the school year is nearly done here and it’s going to be summer break soon!

 

Sunday Confessions v 1.7

Oh geez…. I suck so bad. I failed National Blog Posting Month, I tried and tried, but the last couple of weeks have been hellish and I haven’t even been able to keep up with reading all my daily blogs. I have approximately 500 in my queue right now. So sad, I know.

Today though…. I’m linking up with Alyx from Every Day is a new Adventure for another Sunday Confessions.

1. My family and I have stopped making Thanksgiving dinner from scratch years ago and it doesn’t hurt because in Honolulu you can order a full turkey dinner with all the fixings from a restaurant for a price. The actual confession is that the place we ordered from this year SHORTED US ON STUFFING! I mean there was only stuffing in the bird and none others and I love stuffing. It was so sad I nearly cried 🙁

2. My family and I went to the game that the university played. I was super stoked because not only did the team win (they have been having a bad season), but they also auctioned off their special jerseys for charity. Yesterday was military night and I’m not sure if it was timed for November but this was the first year that the university teamed up with Under Armor to get special jerseys for the game and then auction them off for the Wounded Warrior project.

3. I’ve been working a few DIY projects that I can’t wait to show you in an upcoming blog posts!

4. I went Black Friday shopping and I regret every minute of it. I’m returning half the things I bought tomorrow and it kills me that I have to go back to the mall. I really hope that I don’t cry because of the anxiety. On a bright note, I found a parking space on the first try, so that counts for something right.

5. I really need to iron a clothes, but I’m feeling lazy so I’m quite sure that it’s not going to happen. Wait….Can you hear the Netflix calling you or is it just me?!? It’s just me….
