DIY: Eye Makeup Remover

Hello Ladies!!!

So, I run out of Eye Makeup Remover the other day and instead of going to the store to get a new one, I made my own...... Yes, you read it right,  I MADE MY OWN!!   Now just for the record, this is not my invention and in fact I spent hours researching for the best recipe and well here is my version on "how to" make your own Eye Makeup Remover with products I bet you already own.  I'm going through my second bottle It has been working really well for me.  It is a LOT less expensive too...

This is what you need:

*Empty plastic/glass bottle
*Baby Oil: Fill approximately a third of the bottle.....maybe a little less if you don't like it too oily
*Water:  Fill the rest of the bottle.... but not ALL the way....  leave a little bit of room.
*Face Wash:  add 2 pumps of your favorite face wash.

Yes, that's it!  (crazy huh?)

Hola Chicas!!!
Hace algunos dias se me termino el Desmaquillante de Ojos, y en lugar de ir a comprame uno nuevo, prepare uno casero.......  Si, leyeron bien PREPARE UNO CASERO!!!  Por siaca, no es mi invento y en realidad pase horas buscando por la receta perfecta.  Entonces, aqui les dejo mi version de "como" preparar tu propio Desmaquillante de Ojos con productos que seguramente ya tienes en casa.  Yo ya voy por mi segunda botella y la verdad es que me ha y sigue dando muy buenos resultados.  Aparte que ahorras alguito.....

Esto es lo que necesitas

*Una botella de plastico/vidrio
*Aceite de Bebe: Llena la botella hasta una tercera parte ..... o un poco menos de una tercera parte si lo quieres menos aceitoso.
*Agua:  Llena el resto de la botella.... pero no hasta todo el final... deja un pequeno espacio.
*Jabon Liquido de Cara: Dos chorros de tu jabon liquido de cara favorito.  Algo que no irrite los ojos

Eso es todo!!!  (Facil verdad?)

 Products you need
Productos que necesitas

 It is important to follow this order:

Es importante que sigas este orden:

Now, enjoy your hard work =)
Ahora, disfruta de tu trabajo tan duro =)

Girl's Chat: Relationships


Oh boy!, I forgot how depressing dating could be.   I was never really a dater.... I definitely had more long-term than short-term relationships.  I fell in love, I fell out of love, I have had my heart broken, and I have broken a few hearts too.....  but regardless, every time a relationship ends and fails, It's just discouraging.  On top of that, the older you get, the more selective you become.  To me it is not about finding Mr. Right (cuz there is no such thing).... but it is about finding a quality man (a man with values).... and most importantly, it is about finding a quality guy who I am crazy in love with..... plain and simple.  In the meantime however, it is all about me =)

My sister shared this on her facebook page the other day... "the only relationship that matters is the relationship you have with yourself" true!!  This post is about empowering ourselves....   so, what I wanted to share with you is the book "Why Men loves Bitches" that has helped me (and many of my friends...MANY) so much.  I hope you are open mind about it, because I wasn't at first, but then I'm glad I changed my mind ;)

I know that the title makes it sound like a plain dating book..... and it is, but it is also so much more than that.  It's about relationships and how women "us" often end up caring too much, often forgetting about ourselves.  Definitely a must read in my opinion.  You can read chapter One if you click "click to look inside".  

Here is nice quote from the book...

Principle #80

"The ability to choose how you want to live, and the ability  to choose how you want to be treated are the two things that give you more power than any material object ever will"

Nails: Lily Nail Polish by Revlon


I have been getting a lot of compliments over this nail polish... so I I just wanted to share this color with you really quick.  The color is Lily (#610) by Revlon.  It's the Top Speed formula which I like because It dries out really fast I don't have to sit around and wait forever!!   I'm planning on getting some nail polish with glitter... at first I didn't think I would like that but I changed my mind and now I want to give it a try.  I'll show it to you when I get it.  :)   

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!


A mucha gente le ha gustado este color de esmalte que he estado utilizando ultimamente.  Es el color Lily (#610) de Revlon.  Es la formula Top Speed, lo que significa que tiene un secado rapido.  Y la verdad que si funciona porque no tengo que estar esperando por horas para que el esmalte seque.  Quiero comprarme esos esmaltes con escarcha .... y aunque antes no creia que me gustaria, ahora cambie de opinion y quiero probar... ya les mostrare :)

Sigan disfrutando de su fin de semana!!!

Addicted to Makeup!!!

I have been into makeup lately.... it really has been a creative outlet for me!!!  It's so much fun too.... I just love it!  

So I want to share with you one of my latest purchases.  I went to Sephora to look for fun color eyeshadows and run into this amazing palette made by Kat Von D (Romance in Angeles).  Omg!  it has just the colors I have been looking for.... turquoise, aqua, .... I'm so excited and I can't wait to keep playing with it.   The colors are so pigmented too which is great, even though it may create some fallout.  Also, some of the colors could be too shimmery/glittery for some people, but I happen to like them very much...   I mean, you can control the intensity....  you just need the right tools, and lots of practice!!  That's it!!  

Ultimamente he estado obsesionada con el maquillaje.  Realmente una de las formas que tengo en desarrollar mi creatividad.  Aparte que es divertido..... me encanta!!

Quiero compartir con ustedes una de mis ultimas compras.  Fui a Sephora, una tienda de maquillaje, buscando sombras de colores lindos que pueda usar este verano.  Bueno, encontre esta paleta muy variada y divertida hecha por Kat Von D (Romance en Angeles).  Tiene los colores que realmente esperaba encontrar... turquesa y aqua.  Las sombras tienen tanta pigmentacion, algo que yo buscaba, y aunque antes les hubiera tenido miedo.....   pero bueno, cuando se trata de maquillaje, "la practica hace al maestro"......  :)

   Colors L-R: Venus, Leather, Specimen, Rehab, Peggy, Bukowski, Bellbottom, and Morphine
(The last color (Morphine) is a cream shadow, I heard from other ppl that it dries out pretty quickly, so I put a tiny piece of plastic wrap over the one shadow to keep the moisture in it.  So far so good!)


  Rehad all over, Bukowski on lid and lower lashes, Specimen on the crease, and Leather on the outer corner.
Rehad en todo el parpado, Bukowski en el parte de abajo, Specimen en la parte del medio, y Leather en la V externa.

What do you think?   Do you like it?
Que les parece?  Les gusta?
