Bidding War! Victorious!!

So for the past two days I have had my eye on this lovely Swing dress. The bid started at $1.50. I thought I had this in the bag, because for in two days only one additional person bid on it but still didn't hit my max bid. Low and behold as I was getting a pedicure yesterday, I was watching the auction at 5 minutes left.. and the bidding war had begun!! within the last 60 seconds the dress went from 5.75 to 38.00 dollars!! I was rushing on getting my last and final max bid in at $45.00 with only 10 seconds left on the clock! *TA-DAA* I WON IT!! (EVIL LAUGH INSERT HERE)

I won this green beauty for $38.00 + $5.00 Shipping. A Great deal I must add! It feels good to win an auction but boy oh boy is it stressful! It sure can make a girl like me anxious!

Now I wanna learn how to swing dance for sure! And I think I might take a couple of Cosplay shots.. Fallout 3 status! It'll be fun! HA HA HA 


On another note... I am working on another makeup tutorial. I just have to finish editing it and whatnot. Its my attempt for this look:

The Sweet Escape

Although I couldn't get my bangs to stay that way, I think it turned out alright! Stay tuuuuuned to see how I did the look!

My gold glasses are subbing for the gold jail bars! LOL and I am somewhat wearing jail stripes! HE HE HE!!

Smile, though your heart is aching,
Smile, even though it's breaking.
When there are clouds in the sky-
You'll get by.
If you smile through your pain and sorrow,
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through
For you.
Light up your face with gladness,
Hide every trace of sadness.
Although a tear may be ever so near,
That's the time you must keep on trying,
Smile, what's the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile,
If you just smile.
Those lyrics are those written by John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons, to the music written by Charlie Chaplin. How Ironic that the lyrics were written to a song by the man who made millions of people laugh.... and the lyrics couldn't be more accurate. Why go through life being sad or angry, there's more to life if you smile through the hard times!

This song brings happy tears to my eyes when I listen to it sometimes, Yah yah yah I know, Im a big sap!

But it makes me happy knowing that its okay to smile and I know that happiness is contagious!! 

Make someone smile today, it could make a huge difference!

Is Green Tea good for you??

Most of us know that green tea is filled with Anti- Oxidants. But by just incorporating 3 to 4 cups of green tea a day helps you in many ways!! This is a great way to be healthy - and green tea is yummy too!!

I have been drinking green tea almost everyday 5 times a day! I love the taste and green tea comes in so many flavors that I can't get enough of it!! I have been more energized and have been feeling better internally as well. What makes green tea so good for you?

Well here are some great facts about Green Tea:

Green tea helps to reduce the incidences of colon, bladder, esophageal, pancreas, rectal and stomach cancer by up to 60%. The antioxidant epigallocatechin gallate in green tea is very effective in fighting these forms of cancers.
  • Green tea helps to lower bad cholesterol (LDL) and increase the ratio of good cholesterol (HDL).  (NO MORE CHEERIOS DIET!!)

  • Green tea helps to stop the development of blood clots which lead to strokes and heart attacks.

  • Green tea helps to reduce high blood pressure.

  • Green tea helps to lower blood sugar levels and prevents Type 2 diabetes.

  • Green tea helps to protect the liver against toxins.

  • Green tea helps to promote oral health by destroying the bacteria that forms plaque.

  • Green tea helps destroys free radicals.

  • Green tea helps to boost the immune system.

  • Green tea has antibacterial and antiviral properties.

  • Green tea helps to maintain a healthy fluid balance which helps to relieve stress and fatigue.

  • Green tea helps to stimulate your metabolism which helps with weight loss.

Why don't you introduce green tea into your daily drinking regimen and see how much better you start feeling! Not to mention energized because its naturally caffeinated!!! 

By the by, Black Tea is not the same as Green Tea. They're different colors!! Ha ha Just kidding, Black tea is processed differently so it loses almost all of its healthful attributes.

This site has more information about Green tea, if you would like to know more:

Ready to get your hands on some green tea? 

Visit your local Coffee Bean for some awesome flavors or go online to The Republic of Teas' website for even more of a delicious selection!! 

Great Things To Try!!!

I am SO obsessed with two products recently:

Burt's Bees Radiance Eye Creme

Aveeno Radiant Skin Daily Moisturizer SPH 15

My skin has never looked or felt so flawless before! Not to mention I am drinking Kangen Water daily. Kangen Water is alkaline water which is a healthier form of water with significant anti-oxidant properties. I have completely cut out sodas and artificial juices, and have substituted them with green tea!!! YUM!

 Enagic Kangen Water Leveluk SD501 Water Ionizer Machine

The Aveeno Radiant Moisturizer has promised to even out my skin tone and texture, and even out discolorations in 4 weeks. I am LOVING IT! I have never used a moisturizer before because I was afraid I would break out, I haven't broken out from this stuff! Plus its SPH 15 which is a MUST to help prevent aging due to the sun!! 

The Burt's Bees Eye Creme has Royal Jelly in it which has Vitamin K components, and Vitamin K helps rid of dark under eye circles (which I have badly). I use this creme 2 times a day and I love the results. 

Overall with these products and my water drinking, I am hydrated and am frankly glowing! I feel great and recommend you try out these products when you can!!
