♥Weekly Hearts♥

Hello! Here are this week's hearts:

Natural Makeup
I became a huge makeup fan about a year and a half ago, when I stated to watch xsparkage on YouTube. Ever since, I've gained great skill putting on bold eyeshadows (purples, smoky eyes, blues, even red!). I've also gained a great amount of eyeshadows! But that's another story... The point is, lately I've been really into "natural" makeup or,a term I stole from "Sex and the City" (typical), invisible makeup. Which is basically when you wear makeup, but at first glance it looks like you're just naturally beautiful. So all I've been wearing lately is a little concealer under my eyes, little or no eyeliner on my top lid only, mascara, and pink lipstick/lipgloss. Not only is this super fast, but I feel so light and pretty.

I tried to quit coffee. Yeah, that didn't work out for more than a month. And I've been drinking tons of coffee lately, and by lots I mean about two cups a day. And I love lattes! They're so good! Sometimes I just make regular coffee just to cut calories from the milk, though...

Conair Facial Sauna System
I got this as a Christmas present for my mom, as I mentioned in my previous post. I have yet to try it, but I probably will tonight because I'm so excited. I will be writting a review on it after I try it, in case you're wondering.

R.I.P Brittany Murphy

I just read on Twitter from Jefree Star that Brittany Murphy died. I thought it was some sort of inside joke, but then I scrolled down the page and TMZ had posted about it.

I truly cannot believe it. "Don't Say a Word" is one of my favorite movies, EVER! And I also thought she was great in "Girl, Interrupted" and "Just Married".

I hope her husband and her family can find comfort during this difficult time. My most sincere condolence goes to them.

May she rest in peace.

♥Weekly Hearts♥

Hello! Here are this week's hearts! And a sad little heartache. 

Cupcake Hair Ties
I got these cute hair ties at the Dollar Tree! They're so cute! I've been wearing pigtails for the past couple of days just so I can wear the cupcakes. The package came with five: pink, blue, green, yellow, and purple. I wanted to buy two packages so I had matching pairs for my pigtails, but I'm trying to save up. And it's always fun to mix and match! I love the glittery part :]

SweeTarts Candy Canes
 I love candy canes, but I prefer the tarty sweetness of the SweeTarts candy canes. One of my favorite holiday candies. 

Cotton Container
I also got this container at the Dollar Tree, and I though it was perfect to store my cotton balls because it is airtight. I just love looking at it, I think the cotton balls look like snow!

 Maybelline's The Colossal Volum' Express
I've been meaning to try this mascara probably since it came out, but I never got around to it. Seeing it's bold colors in stores really appealed to me, but for some reason I never bought it. Until about a month ago. I put it on as soon as I got home from the store, and my jaw dropped. It is definitely my favorite mascara. I've been meaning to write about it, but for some reason I keep forgetting. This mascara deserves a post for itself; which I'll definitely write (and put pictures too!).


Heartache: Max is sick
My best friend has been sick for the past couple of days, I just don't know what's wrong with him and it breaks my heart to see him like that. I've been giving him soft food and pumpkin, but I'm not sure if it is working. This morning my dad gave him a little aspirin (about 50 mg), so I hope that helps.

New Look for the Blog

For a while I've been trying to give the blog a new look, and last night I finally finished. I like to think of it as Cotton Candy themed, because of the blue and pink. I made the banner using Photoshop for the image editing and Paint for the font; and I was really pleased with the result. So I hope my dear readers like it! :]

PS. I'm spending a lot of time thinking of things to blog about, so keep tuned!!

♥Weekly Hearts♥

Hello! I'm alive, and everything is fine. I just pretty much failed on doing my "Weekly Hearts" for the past couple of... months... Extremely sorry! But I will be pushing myself to do them timely.

Enough intro, let's get to the hearts:

Echofon (for Firefox)
I've been really into Twitter lately (follow me @anitalolita). I tweet about my uninteresting life, but mostly I like reading other people's tweets. And Echofon has made this so much easier :] I also have TwitterBar, but I do think Echofon is much better.

Pink Lips
I've been wearing pink lips everyday for the past couple of weeks. I love it! I feel it looks really girly and pretty and flirty. I've been using a lip gloss and a liquid lipstick, and yesterday I actually bought my first lipstick from my mom. It's a beautiful barbie pink that I'll be wearing a lot! :]
PS. Those are my lips.

Christmas Carols
Okay people. I love Christmas carols. I'm that kind of person. I'll even listen to them in July! This deserves a whole "Random Fact About Me" post, so I will definitely do that. But I will tell you that I've been bursting into "Winter Wonderland" this whole week. It's my favorite carol and I will write about it in my next random fact post.

Hello Kitty Compact
I got this at Target. Target, you're draining my bank account!! But I think it was a very well spent $3.99. I love it! I was actually thinking about ordering a similar one from the online Sanrio store, but plus shipping it would probably end up being more than $10, which is ridiculous. But I like it very much, and it also had a hair brush, which does come in handy. The only think I don't like is the smell. It smells like vegan smoked sausage: not good. But it's kind of fading (or I'm getting used to it), which is good.

Ok, this might be TMI, so I'm warning you.
I switched to tampons on Monday (12/7/09), and I am in heaven! I can't believe I didn't try them before. I'm regular/heavy flow, so I always used the Always Maxi pads, which are kinda bulky. Pads are not the best thing, it feels like a diaper and you're carrying your period around in your panties for a couple of hours (that's what I was talking about when I said TMI alert). And I always worried they would show through my pants... But I don't think I'll go back to only using pads. Tampons are amazing.

So here are this week's hearts, I hope you enjoyed reading through. I'll see your in my next post! :]

My second vegetarian anniversary.

I can't believe it's been two years. I truly cannot. But I am twice as proud of myself as I was last year. Here's to another great year as a vegetarian, and many more to come!!
