C.S.I Brenda

The other day I had a fire going in my fireplace and one of the red candles next to it apparently got too hot and exploded all over the carpet.  So, did I get mad, shout profanities and rush for cleaning supplies to take care of the mess?  Of coarse not, what fun would that be?  Instead, I turned it into a crime seen for one of Makayla's Bratz dolls (she hasn't seen these photos, not sure if it would be a good idea.) Those little dolls freak me out anyways, to change the shoes you remove the whole foot..... weird, but it worked for the situation.  

Uh-oh, as I'm writing Makayla walked in, saw what I am doing, and had this to say "WHAT and Why?".  I guess I have some explaining to do.

My to 10

If Oprah can have a top 10, I see no reason why Brenda can't.  So here are my top 10 beauty products (in no particular order), 

Wow!  I smell so good... I just want to lick my arm!  I love this line of Pink (victoria secret) splashes and body washes. My Fav is the Fruity and Bright.  All I can say is Wow!
Who new that lip gloss that only costs a dollar could be so great? E.L.F. lip gloss totally rocks, it's not all sticky icky, and did I mention it only costs a buck?!

Oh tweezerman, you made the worlds best tweezer in pink and slapped a rhinestone on it. Thank you tweezerman,  plucking those brows has never been so glamorous!
If the eyes are the windows to the soul, then I say the eyelashes are the curtains!  And you better believe I want them looking good.  I spend the most time on my eyelashes, and the Shu Uemura eyelash curler makes them perfect!  Really, it's amazing! Crystal got me hooked.

So, I went through to many years of eye shadow smudging, not staying put, and never the same color as it was when applied.  Until I found this little treasure.  Mac's eye paints totally keep my eye shadow in the same place I left it... all day!  That's right, I said all day!
Thank you Drew! So who didn't see Drew Barrymore's add campaign for this mascara? Well, it sold me.  Remember what I said about eyelashes and curtains?  Holy thick lashes batman, this stuff works!
Can you mary a hair tool?  No? That's to bad, because I'm in love with my chi flat iron.  Straight, curly, what can't you do with it? I did accidently iron my hand the other other day, that sucked, but we've kissed and made up....

Dirty Secret dry shampoo, what's the secret?..... I don't have to wash my hair every day, and you can't tell!  It absorbs oil and smell good too, I may never shower again.

I have used this for years, and plan on it for the rest of my life.  Keeps my frizzy hair not so frizzy, and hello, it's all sparkly! (you cant tell in the pic)
Spray this stuff on, then flat iron your hair! Smooth and straight every time. What would I do with out my bed head products?  Probably walk around with some funky bed head right? (bad joke, sorry)

So there it is, my top 10... until next week.  I seriously love beauty products, can't get enough of them, and buy something new like every week.  It's a sickness really. I am addicted.  But things could be worse, I could be addicted to crack.

Creative Writing?

If you were to ask me what my favorite subject was in school, without a doubt I would say creative writing! History, Blah. Government/Economics, wtf. Math, numbers aren't my thing. But to be given a subject and the freedom to express myself through words is something I have always enjoyed. So this leads me to my problem.... I can't thing of a dang thing to write in my blog! So this blog entry is merely an un-entry of sorts. Make sense? I feel like I have this unpenitrable fog around my brain that makes the thought/writing process near impossable, though you can ask me a question about anything disney and I somehow manage to be driving 90 mph through the fog to deliver the correct answer. So this "fog" I speak of, I believe it settled in some were around 2002-2003. Not surprisingly, my first child was born in 2003. Hmmmm, I think we're on to something. Another thing standing in the way of my brilliant blogging may be the fact that two seconds after I sit down in front of my computer, I have a two year old climbing all over me like I'm some sort of jungle gym, (last time I checked I did not have monkey bars, though I have noticed a "tire" swing settling in around my mid section), and a five year old with more questions, well, more questions than I have the time or patience for. So, moral of the story.... I would love to blog, truly. Will I? Maybe not as much I would like. So, for the two of you who actually read my blog, hang in there, more blogging will come. Just as soon as I'm done watching this episode of Dora the Explorer, for the 500th time........
