Beautiful Sunset!!!!


Look at this amazing sunset.  I took this picture while going on a walk.  I needed to be away from the noise and listen to my inner self talking to me.  I love being surrounded by nature, I find peace. 

I love sunsets they are an indication of a ending and a beginning.  In life it is like this.  If you had a bad day just remember you will be blessed with the opportunity to start over. 

Don’t stay stuck on the day that is ending.  Wake up to a better opportunity to shine. 

BIG hugs, much love, and I will see ya’ll later!!!

Knocking me down!

Today I read a comment or maybe a verse and it said something like this:
You may not be responsible for getting knocked down,  but you're certainly responsible for getting back up.
I have been knocked down lately and I am CHOOSING to get back up a stronger and more confidant person. 
There is beauty always to be found in the ashes of our despairs, heart brokeness, and with the daily struggles of life.  This is were we get to find out how strong we are and how strong is our faith.
"The most beautiful people I know
have been broken and then rebuilt.
Their frailty is their strength.
For they understand their need for God.


BIG HUGS, MUCH LOVE, AND I WILL SEE YOU LATER, (stronger and more confidant)

Pill full of Sugar!!!

After starting the day got really good after I went to check my mail.  I have been eyeing Sugarpill Cosmetics for a while and every time I went on their site the buring heart palette was sold out.  I asked to be notified and when they did I was on it like gum to my shoe. hahaha
I did some swatches for you all you lovelies: 
The purple (Poison Plum), red (Love +), and the orange (Flamepoint) are highly pigmented.  As far as the yellow (Buttercupcake) I  needed to swatch it  several times to have the color but that is okay because yellow in general is very hard to work with. 

This is what came in the box:

Came wrapped in a hot pink cute is that.  I am totally keeping the paper.  It also came with a sticker, a sample loose eyeshadow in magentric (hot pink color with sparkles!!)

My Heart is buring for this

I especially liked that on my invoice they said thank you and with love Amy!!!  Thank you Amy

I am so happy with my Sugarpill cosmetics palette. I cannot wait to get creative with it.

BIG hugs, much love and we will see ya later,

It's HOT!!!!!

The weather here in California (I am sure everywhere else) is in the the 3 digits.   This is scorching heat.  Here are some "cool" tips:

  1. Make sure to put on your SPF.
  2. Stay out of the sun during 12 pm and 4 pm since this is the hottest time of the day.
  3. Excerise early in the morning or late in the afternoon.
  4. Wear light color clothing and make sure it's cotton.  You want the material to be breathable.
The most important is to drink plently of water. You don't want to become dehydrated.

Have a fun and healthy summer vacation.

BIG Hugs, much love and trying to stay refreshed

Dream, Dream away!

I'm always being told, "You are such a dreamer".  "You can never seem to focus on one thing", and I am even given the run down of my list of faded dreams.
  1. learn how to do artifical nails and nail art
  2. Design my own clothing line or t-shirt line
  3. be a photographer
  4. My most recent: NOW my dream of makeup
I see it like this, I love to dream!!!!  Dreams are where everything starts.  All we see around us was a dream someone had at one point in there life.  My dreams are a form of my artistic vision.  They all coincide.  Nails and nail art, makeup, photography = art!

Don't stop dreaming.  When you stop dreaming you stop believing that anything is this life is possible. NEVER lose your child like innocence.  Remember when we were kids we would lay down outside in the lawn or in the back of your dads pick up just staring up at the sky and begin to dream.  As we get older we stop dreaming because we get caught up in our everyday lives.  I constantly tell myself man I wish I was a kid again and I bet you do too.

Keep dreaming no matter what people tell you.  I will be dreaming right along with you!!!!!!

BIG Hugs, Much love, and happy dreaming.

What's the deali-OOO!?!

What's the deali-OOO!?!

Hello beautiful people!!!!!
This is my very first blog post so I really don't know what to expect. However, it is very exciting!!! Let me start off by just telling y'all a little bit about me, your girl GIGI, (hahaha that totally rhymed)
1. I love life.
2. I am a crazy makeup lover (ask my sisters and my mama they think I am crazy...period)
3. I try to live by these words: You are what you think about. Basically if you think you are not worth it you will make yourself believe that you are not worth it. Change your thoughts and in return your world will change as well.
4. I try to put myself first. Sometimes this is hard to do because I am a giver, I give my time to my family (they are my breath) and I forget to take care of me.
5. Love yourself before you love someone else..Never seek love from someone is because it will never be good enough. Love and honor who you are. You are unique and fabulous!!!
There are so many other things to add to my list but then this blog will be more like a book...hahaha. In the coming days I will post another What's the deali-OOO!?!

BIG HUGS, Much LOve and we will see y'all later!!!!
