I'm not quite sure

This blog was intended for many things, many things that I am not interested in blogging about anymore! I think I will write about things that interest me at the time, things that are on my mind, or whatever. All of you will learn so much about me, whether you like it or not!

I have issues...

I have a really hard time getting into a routine, which is why my blog is so empty. I'm going to try once more to get into the habit. Third time's a charm? We shall see.

So I've stopped reading...NOT forever though!

I've been catching up on a lot of films because my friends always tell me I'm behind on movies. I've seen some that have become some of my favorites! I didn't write reviews because I feel that these films will speak for themselves. Watch them, they will not disappoint you!

Here are some of my favorites that I recommend:

Weird Beauty Tips

Have you ever heard of anyone putting toothpaste on a pimple? It might sound weird but it works! Here are some beauty tips that may seem odd but give a great result in the end. Hope you Enjoy!

*Use Toothpaste on a Pimple
Use a tiny bit (just enough to cover the pimple). Leave it on for 15 minutes, then wash it off.

*Super-Glue your Nail
Don't tear your nail off when it breaks! Instead put a little bit of Super Glue on it. Let it dry and cover the crack with a dark colored nail polish.

*Great Skin is a cup of Tea
Does your skin look puffy or irritated? The fix is a cup of tea! Steep a bag of green tea for a minute or two, wait till it cools, and put it over your face. The antioxidants in the tea take down inflammation.

*No toothpaste Necessary
Too tired to clean your teeth after partying? Simple: rinse with water and mouthwash, then use a dry toothbrush on the area where your teeth hit your gums.

*Make an Egg-White Mask
To liven up dull skin without spending big bucks, try this: Crack open an egg in a bowl, separate the yolk, and use the egg whites to make a face mask. The proteins help to heal and restore skin's moisture. Endure the smell for five minutes, then wash it off.

*Not cents but scents
You don't have to be spendy to smell good, you can make your own lotion by pouring a few drops of your favorite fragrance into any scent-free lotion. Rub it on your body and you will smell delicious throughout the day.

*Sparkling Lashes
You want to make your eyes stand out without all the makeup? The trick is to comb petroleum jelly lightly through the tips of your eyelashes to get a wet, sexy and subtle sparkle.

*Freeze your eyes
Well not your eyes but your eyeliner. Sometimes the tip of the eyeliner crumbles and this doesn't end up well. Put the eyeliner in the freezer for about 15 minutes before use. The tip ends up being firm and is ready to be applied smoothly on your eyelids.

*Moisture and Shine
If you want your legs to be moisturized and have great shine without the greasy look, blend a drop of baby oil into your normal body lotion for extra shine plus the moisture.

*Not Only for your Hair
Did your forget to buy shaving cream? Do double duty by coating your legs with hair conditioner. It softens the hair so it's easier to shave off and makes legs feel extremely silky and soft like a baby's behind.

*Make your Pit look like Pitt
Do you have flaky and dry underarms? Try this: exfoliate them with a gentle face scrub to keep your pits looking pretty and sexy when going sleeveless.

*Brush Spray
For the final step of your blow-dry, spray hair spray onto your brush, and brush it through strands from roots to tips, instead of drowning your hair with the spray. By doing this your hair 'do isn't plastered and stiff but still holds volume and shine.

The clock is ticking!

I can't wait till school begins!

I must admit that I miss going to school and having something to do. I've tried looking for a job with no success. I've applied to so many places but no one has called me back and I've lost hope :( I had forgotten that I had a blog (omg 0_0)!!! So now that I remembered I will have something to do! Yay! Let's see what I blog about in the upcoming days...

Presale Madness

Today is the first day of the presale for Morrissey tickets. The presale will end Fri. March 30 at 10 pm. Ever since the first shows Morrissey had this year, I have been trying to obtain tickets; be it from presales, ticketmaster, ebay and who knows what people but no tickets for me :(
For his upcoming shows in Los Angeles I was determined to get tickets! My ordeal began a couple of days ago when I decided to cash my check. I went to the bank and had everything I needed with me, my id and my debit card but guess what? I had no check with me! I began to panic at the thought of someone getting my check and somehow cashing it but after I calmed down I remembered that I had left it at my house. Hahaha how laughable is that?! The next day I woke up at 2pm because of late night partying :p I had to go to work immediately but before I went to work, I stopped at the bank. I was in line digging through my purse making sure I had my check. This time the check was there but no debit card and no id. Hmm...a little repetitive huh? I tried to cash it anyways with other forms of id but no luck. They told me they had sent me a replacement debit card and they could not let me deposit nor withdraw any money. So basically I was screwed. I woke up this morning at 6am with a glimmer of hope that I would be able to cash my check and deposit it in order to be able to see Morrissey. The presale began at 10am, the same time the bank opened. I tried going to another nearby bank to try my luck there but my luck was no good. I was devastated. I came home and watched as the tickets disappeared. 20 minutes into the presale I get a phone call from a dear old friend of mine who said "I got 2 tickets for you. They are for the Morrissey show in the Hollywood Bowl. Do you want them?" I responded with a scream and then with a "Of course I want them!" My friend gave me the seat numbers and I noticed they are not too close. To be honest, I was a tad disappointed but I got tickets at least. Is it wrong to want to be front row in a concert where the man who wrote the songs that saved my life will perform? You be the judge?...Of course it is NOT wrong hahaha...

I blame the directions!!!

Today I had quite an adventure which I'd like to tell you about which took place from 2:00am to 6:00am. I am a person who tends to do things on a whim; I don't really take the time to think about my actions and their subsequent consequences. I had a whim to go to Manhattan Beach, which holds a lot of sentimental value to me. I called my lover and asked if he'd like to go with me and he agreed. I had been there before obviously but I had never taken the freeway there...always drove down Rosecrans ave. I sent the directions I obtained from google and mapquest to my cell phone. Once I was on the 105, approaching the next freeway, I had to choose whether or not I should take the 405 freeway which I had never been on or exit Long Beach and go down Rosecrans. Being adventurous one :p I took the freeway. I took the 405 n. towards Santa Monica (obviously the WRONG way!). I figured I should get off the freeway,because my lover had to be home before 4am, so I did. I had no freakin idea where I was at! I finally stopped at a 7/11 after driving with no direction in mind, bought something to drink and head off to find the 405 south which was no where to be found! I found it and immediately searched for the 105. I was so infuriated that I got lost and did not end up going to the beach, that I went on the 105 west when I needed to go east. I had to start all over again! I was fed up and finally decided to stop at a gas station to ask for directions. Thanks to the gas station employee, I found the 105 east. I sped through traffic trying to get my love back home before 4am. As we entered the 605, he told me that I had 15 minutes til 4. I completely ignored traffic rules (such a bad driver!!!) and drove at about 100 miles per hour, got him home in 10 minutes when it is supposed to take 45! Thank the heavens we got home safe and without a speeding ticket :p I wonder where I will go next and what stupid incidents will occur! Stay tuned!!! lol

Where have all my posts gone?

I have noticed that blogging has become quite hard for me to do because of school and work. It is very saddening. Although I work less than part time is supposed to, I find myself trying to make money with side projects which takes up all my time. I wonder if anyone actually reads what I write. Well if you do read my blog, leave a comment and tell me what you think about what I wrote. I want your opinions!

Pecan Pie Recipe

I love baking and creating new recipes so I decided to post up how to bake one of my favorite pies: Pecan Pie!

First of all you have to have to prepare the pastry for a single-crust pie.

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 to 5 tablespoons cold water
1/3 cup shortening

1.In a bowl stir together the salt and flour. Using a pastry blender, cut in the shortening.
2.Pour one tablespoon of the water over part of the flour mixture. Push moistened dough to the side of the bowl. Repeat until all of the flour mixture is moistened. After the dough is moistened, form the dough into a ball.
3.On a lightly floured surface, use your hands to slightly flatten the dough. Roll the dough out into a circle about 12 inches in diameter.
4.Wrap the dough on a rolling pin to transfer it into a 9 inch pie plate. Carefully put the dough into the plate without stretching the dough.
5.Trim pastry to 1/2 inch beyond the edge of the pie plate. Fold under extra pastry. Crimp edge as desired with fingers or fork. Do not prick the pastry.

Pecan Pie Ingredients
3 slightly beaten eggs
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup corn syrup
1/3 cup of melted butter or margarine
1 1/4 cups pecan halves
1 teaspoon vanilla or vanilla extract

1.Have the pastry ready to be filled
2.For the filling, combine the eggs, corn syrup, sugar, butter, and vanilla. Mix the ingredients well and stir in the pecan halves.
3.Place the pastry-lined pie plate on the oven rack. Carefully pour the filling into the pastry shell.
4.You don't want your pie to be overbrowned, so cover the edge of the pie with doil. Bake in a 350 degree oven or 25 minutes. Remove the foil. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes more or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Cover and refrigerate within 2 hours. Your pecan pie is ready!!!

Get your hair back!

Have you ever dyed your hair and found that you didn't like it? Or how about this...Are you tired of dyeing your hair and you now want to go back to your natural haircolor? Well I'm not but maybe you are. Here's a link that might help you out! Get your natural haircolor back!

I have been reading

I have been so busy with school related things, trying to find a place to live at and other stressful things! Well let's see...what to write about??? Oh I know! Recently, I have been reading a book about the intriguing relationship that Morrissey and Marr had back in the days of The Smiths. The gist of the book is the rise and fall of The Smiths, the lives of Steven Morrissey and Johnny Marr and the differences that tore them apart. I don't really want to mention the name of the book because it has created much controversy and I don't want to bother with all that. At the moment, I am half way through the book. From what I have read, the book is full of irrelevent information and filler. I believe the author does not give justice to the lyrics that Morrissey wrote nor the songs that The Smiths worked hard to create. I sense some jealousy and possibly resentment from the author, partly because his commentary on Morrissey's lyricism tends to be either glancing or completely superficial. The mealy-mouthed preface that accompanies the revised edition of the book is a case in point, and is perhaps better ignored altogether... But before I say more than I should, I will finish the book (although it has its good parts, the ever so addicting book tends to be a chore to read.) and review it then.

Lost In A Sea of Words...

I have decided to make my own blog after seeing some really cool stuff I thought was intereting. I going to make this be a reflection of me or in other words, what you see here is what I like or I'm interested in...hope you guys like it!
