Teeny Tiny ELF Haul

HERRRRRO! ELF was having a promo with free shipping for orders over $15 so my girlfriend and I jumped on the opportunity and I got some stuff I wanted to try out. I didn't purchase as much as I wish I did but at the time, I didn't feel like I really needed anything. But now I regret it because after like 3 weeks worth of waiting for it to arrive, the wait almost wasn't worth it since I only got a couple of things. By the way, ELF really needs to fix that because I know many others experienced super long shipping as well. Sometimes the wait isn't long and sometimes it's way too long... it's never consistant! -_______-

Anywho, here's what I picked up!

 Eyelid Primer - $1

It seems really wet when you apply it, kind of like the UDPP but once it's set, it almost seems like there's nothing there so I'm not sure, but we'll see! I heard its not bad for $1 and many compared it to UDPP.

Eyebrow Treat & Tame in Dark - $3
 The "Treat" side is a gel formula that's infused with re-growth vitamins to condition, repair, and restore the eyebrows. The "Tame" side is a fiber enhanced mascara formula that has a tint of color to define and keep your brows in place for a fuller and more natural looking brows.

 I tested out the "tame" side, and it actually did a pretty good job with the brow tint and keeping it all in place! 

Eyebrow Kit in Dark - $3 

It comes with a "gel" with a darker shade to define and shape the brows and also a powder with a lighter shade to fill in the brows for a more natural finish.

Waterproof Eyeliner Pen - $1

I've heard really good things about this so I thought I'd give it a try! It does come out pretty black, sets fast and doesn't smudge. However, it's not "waterproof" after I licked my finger (LOL dirty) to test it out, it smeared! But it seems to be a pretty good eyeliner for only $1! The felt tip is great, easy to control. Another flaw is that the cap is super hard to remove =/

That's it! I know - pretty small haul but I wanted to just try these products out! 
Hope you found this somewhat helpful. ELF always has really great promotions/sales going on so definitely check out their site! 

Happy ELF Haulin'!


Update! (again)...

Herrrooooooo! First off, I would like to say a SUPER BIG CANADIAN (hands you poutine and ketchup chips) THANK YOU to all the great comments and feedback you all gave me for my last post! I just wanted to get the point across that even if you're the typical "model size" skinny - you still get judged as well as any other size you wear. Remember - everybody has flaws, even being perfect. ;)

*Secondly*, I'm thinking of doing a blog sale of my barely used or maybe even untouched makeup... would you guys be interested in that sometime in the future if I do end up wanting to do one????? I need to get rid of the stuff I never touch and have more space in my collection (aka hoard more. -____-) but I don't want it to go to waste! So let me know if you guys may be interested! :D

And thirdly, I haven't had the inspiration to post up any EOTD's or any make-up related posts for that matter. So here's a quick picture update on some of the things I've been up to:

 Some haulin' here and there... 
not everything but here's a look of some of the things I got... this all may be repeats to those that follow me on twitter.

Everything in the clear packaging are "testers" that are brand new. My sister used to work Lancome so she was able to collect a lot and so she was cleaning out her make up collection and I jumped in on the opportunity to take whatever she didn't use/want. ^___^

Skinny Bitches have hearts too!

This is a really important topic I would like to rant/discuss/explain. Throughout your teenage years as you grow older and start to go through magazines, you start to see what the media puts out there and portrays how you should look... yada yada yada. Ok we've all learned that. Let's fastforward all the corny cheesy bullshit about how women comes in all shapes and sizes blah blah blah, if you're a size 14 you're still beautiful blah blah blah.

What I want to discuss is the side of being a size 0 - MY side of it. Afterall, there's 2 sides of every story right? Yes, of course you see all these beautiful models out there that are smaller than a size 4 or whatever and every single person that discusses about body image and how you DON'T need to be a size 0 and still be beautiful.

But can I just mention that not EVERY size 0 girl out there WANTS to be a size 0? When girls these days gets praised for being curvy and being thick is beautiful... it's almost as if they're bashing on girls that are NATURALLY skinny/petite/thin/slim.... "anorexic", however the eff you want to call it.

Here's my side of it: I am not the kind of girl who looks at herself in the mirror and sees a size 14 when in reality I'm not. I see my true size. I know I'm skinny. But being my size, you get all these people saying: "OMG, YOU'RE SOOOOO SKINNY! EAT SOMETHING!" - what the fuck bitch. Saying something like that is as bad as saying "You should go on a diet" to a bigger girl. How the mother fuck is that in any way a "compliment"? Not to mention, I can fucking eat bitch. It may not look like it but have you ever heard of something called high metabolism? Or naturally born that way? There are girls that are just naturally born big boned, as well as those who are naturally born petite. Not every skinny girl starves herself to death just like how not every bigger girl stuffs her face constantly.

Another "compliment" that I always get: "Your legs are the size of my forearms!" ....do you see me going around saying "your arms the size of my head!".... it's like we're allowed to be more sensitive to bigger girls but apparently it's okay to be as blunt and rude to skinny girls because that's what society/media portrays everyone should look like right? WRONG. In REALITY, everything has it's flaws and being skinny isnt as "acceptable" as you'd think.

I understand sometimes comments like those aren't meant to be "rude"... but just try to switch around the situation and maybe you'd understand. People will say "They're just jealous because you're so skinny", they don't generally see calling people skinny is a bad thing yet calling someone fat can be hurtful. Ok, that acts as if skinny girls doesn't have a heart or feelings. Calling us skinny, telling us to eat something... is just as RUDE. 

I find a hard time to find boots that will fit my calves, and jeans that will fit my thighs/legs in conjunction to my waist. Just finding clothes in general... it's like that for EVERYONE. But so many people make it seem like it's soooo easy and fun to be a size 0, and to be so skinny. It's just a vicious cycle whether you're skinny or fat, thin or big, slim or curvy... but everyone says it's okay to be a size 14, but how come nobody says it's okay to be a size 0? They automatically assume that because it's on magazines, it's implied.... however, I myself don't look like a gorgeous model type of size 0 either.

You can easily tell anyone to eat healthy to gain/lose some weight and to go to the gym. But it's just the same thing whether you're saying that to a bigger or smaller girl. In a lot of situations, it's either hard or impossible for some people whether you're big or small.

Everybody wants what they can't have, and every girl comes in different shapes and sizes. What the main point is that even if being slimmer is "ideal" to the media, it's not so much in reality whether youre slim or not because everything has it's own flaws.

That's all I really have to say about it for now... I just really wanted to make this post because I feel like nobody really recognizes that every shape/size has its own flaws and as women, we ALL have our own dislikes about ourselves. It's life! 

I hope you guys understand where I'm coming from... whether you're big/small, fat/skinny, tall/short.... we are who we are and learn to love it and own it :)

I just wanted to add this picture in because we're so cute. LOL but see, he's big... I'm small. it's perfect!
but also my boyfriend had high metabolism and he was smaller as well... so he's quite an inspiration on body image and how you can improve and work with what you got! :) ----> HANH'S blog

PLAYOFFS 2011!!!!

HELLO!! For awhile I didn't know what to blog about... if any of you have any requests or anything - just let me know!!! Either *tweet* me or simply leave a comment! :) 

Anywho, today was the first playoff hockey game with of course, my hometown CANUCKS vs BLACKHAWKS aka BASTARDS. hahahahaha! So to get in the spirit at work, I decided to use the Canucks colors (Blue + Green) on my eyes today! I got a lot of compliments on it so I was super excited. 

I know my pictures (color) doesn't turn out that great because it's always either on my Blackberry (w/ flash) or on my digital camera but I'm still working on the settings... it's a Canon PowerShot SD1300 IS... if you have this camera and you know the settings to the best of its abilities... PLEASE let me know! It comes out orange-y even when I put it on "Tungsten".

I definitely got noticed (but in a good way!) so I was excited sporting this look!

I hope you feel inspired to do a look like this! WEAR IT WITH PRIDE BABY!
