Cheap DIY with Alaya!

Today's DIY! Cheap and chic!

Today, guys and girls spend tons of money getting tacky, orange tans. Spray tans are gross and too tangerine like, and UV beds make your skin age super quick. Get a perfect shade.

*Items can be found at a drugstore, prices here from Walgreens/*

First, for your body apply a cocoa butter to add a golden glow to the skin.
WALGREENS- Palmers Cocoa butter with Vitamin E. (5.29)

For the legs, more daring can apply Sally Hansen spray Airbush Legs in your skin tone. WALGREENS(13.49)

For the eyes, apply a copper colored eyeshadow to add a glow to the face.

To finish it out, apply a medium amount of Bonnebell Lip Lites in Angel food Cake

NOTES-Keep the bronze look a shade darker then your skin (Vanessa)or risk tacky tans!

Beautiful creativity

Flippin' through a photo set on surrealism on flickr. The gal who does these AMAZING photographs had one that really caught my attention. She has her rights, so sadly I cannot show this AMAZING photo, so I had an AMAZING creativity burst and an AMAZING idea popped in my head. Actually two, cause yeh just do...
1. OMFG! I should make a poem!!
2. I need to stop saying AMAZING!
Rehka is her name. She has a photo called I need myself to survive, so I look at it and go. "Wow! Poem time!"
Here it goes...


Struggling, pulling myself
I realize I stand in my
own way.
I face my reflection
whom I realize
that it is reacting
My reflection opens my mouth
Rehka, pull it together
and wipes away my tears with
a thumb
I see her grab my hands
and realize
I am the poison at times
yet always
I am


Yeah, I feel like a little child. A toddler.
A few days ago I went to a local lake. I dug in the mud, collected feathers and made ugly mounds of mud with feathers stuck on the top, called a sand castle.
We watched Canadian geese dive and nibble on grass and mud beetles. We bought a box of 200 Otter Pops. I think were going to eat all of them pretty soon.
I'm not sure if the blog life is for me. I mean, I have alot to say, but no one
is even reading these.

Don't youse luv dose lolanimals? Teh quoot animal pekshures with bahd grammars?
Deh are so awesomez! I has some peksures of dem too.

(") (")

A little jumbled...

I don't think I have any readers, but still...
I haven't been posting for awhile.
I really have been busy, and I'm also trying to convince my family to allow me to go vegetarian. Pretty serious about it too. I can't go full on with no meat, I still have to eat fish... After that I'll go Lacto-Ovo-(eggs and milk) then maybe head on to full frontal. I guess after that, vegan, fruitatarian, then raw foodist...
Think I'll stop at Lacto-Ovo.
I really don't have anyone to enertain... so I'm feeling really stupid.
Oh! Has anyone seen the new Marc by Marc Jacobs summer collection! I haven't yet, and can't find it either. He's a GENIUS.
