A Little Brighter

poetry, Uncategorized

Sometimes I feel very small
And my heart feels weak

And I don’t stand tall.

I don’t know what to do

Sometimes I’m red

Sometimes I’m blue.

And I feel all alone…

Can you hear me?

But I’ll be okay

Because tomorrow is a brand new day.

 I know that God carries my soul

And He loves me.

I stand a little straighter,

I smile a little brighter,

I pick myself up from the fall.

Because I am loved by so many wonderful beings-

So I continue marching 

Strong and tall.

Natural, Everyday Look


Hi guys! I was recently experimenting with different makeup looks, and decided that the following products make a great combination! Since these are just basic products, there isn’t one specific way of applying and wearing them. You can find all of the products below (except the cream highlight) at your local drugstore. I recommend these products for makeup beginners.


Top to bottom: Covergirl Lashblast Fusion mascara in Black; Revlon ColorStay eyeliner in Black; Sonia Kashuk Lip Definer in Hibiscus; (bottom left) Urban Decay Cream Highlite in Wicked (used as eyeshadow); (bottom right) Physicians Formula Sexy Booster Glow Blush in Natural.

Get rid of those ANNOYING flyaway hairs!


Hey guys! Flyaway hairs are so annoying- my hair is pretty thin, so flyaways are a super huge problem! Thankfully, I found an amazing trick online- all you need is a kabuki brush and hairspray!


I used Garnier Fructis full control anti-humidity hairspray, ultra strong. You can find this at the hair and makeup section of any drugstore. I am not sure what brand my kabuki brush is, but it doesn’t really matter- a cheap one is good, since you don’t need it for makeup purposes. (Remember: this kabuki brush should be properly washed, with no makeup left behind. It’s probably not a good idea to use it for makeup after applying hairspray to it…)

Step 1:

Apply one or two spritzes of hairspray to the kabuki brush- don’t overdo it!

Step 2:

Apply in gentle downward strokes, starting from the root, working down to the ends. Don’t go back and forth, because that will lead to even more unruly hair.

And ta-da! Your hair will be silky smooth and flyaway-free!
