Weird Beauty Tips
*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.
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.
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 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...

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!!!

Pecan Pie Recipe
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!!!
