Sad Day

Today, was a long day for me. It is a boring and dull day. I have been coughing lately and having a cold. I don't feel so good now and I've been feeling cranky today, especially now! Hmm...yesterday I was going to blog before leaving but I didn't have any time. We went to the Aurora outlet in Illinois, it was big and lots of walking. Got me some good stuff there, not a lot from the CCO though but I did get some goodies at the DF&CC. Having a cold right now and coughing to death so if ya know any good medicine that will heal this cold please do let me know. I've been dying to get rid of this cold because it's getting on my nerve. I've been sick this week and I haven't rest nor got enough sleep. So I think I will go eat, take a shower and get a good night rest. Thanks guys.

Clinique 3 Step Acne System

Do you have acne problems that just seems to make you go nut? Have you tried so many drugstores and higher end brand on your acne but still it doesn't make a difference? Well, I have found the miracle product to make your acne go away! I'm so excited to talk about this product because I have tried so many products out there and at the last moment where I gave up hope and was about to leave my acne problem behind I found this product. For me, in one night I saw a different in my pore size. In one day, my pore became smalller. In two days, my acne was already there any more. In three days, my acne was gone. Yes, in just 3 days my acne was gone and boy, was I happy. I know it sounds like a joke but seriously in just 3 days my acne from my forehead disappear and gone. Whenever I feel like an acne is starting or when I do see pimps on my forehead I just use this 3 step system and's gone. My skin looks flawless without a pimp on my face.
You can find this product at any clinique standing. The price of the whole set (all three products) is $32 .50. You can find these at the CCO but only select CCO carry this line. To buy this individually could cost you more but here is a review of each product and prices: Acne Solutions Clarifying LotionGentle, medicated formula exfoliates, unclogs pores. Helps reduce excess oil that can lead to breakouts $13.50, Acne Solutions Clearing Moisturizer Oil-FreeLightweight, medicated formula helps clear and prevent blemishes. Calms, soothes, reduces redness $16.00, Acne Solutions Cleansing FoamMild, medicated formula helps clear and prevent acne. Calms, soothes, visibly reduces redness $17.50. So if you were to buy them individually it would cost: $47. If you were to buy the whole set it would be cheaper. I got my set at the CCO for $26 and wow, just now I'm surprise how cheap I got it for. So you might want to check your local CCO before buying it at the clinique stand because it'll be cheaper and more affordable.
Here is the description on the system: The Clear Skin System wastes no time in giving blemishes the boot. Does it without the dryness and irritation that generally gets skin into trouble. It's simple, scientific. Gentle exfoliation opens clogged pores, evicts blemish-causing bacteria. Targeted ingredients rush in to accelerate treatment. Keeps skin clearer, longer, too.
Here's how to use this system. It's pretty easy to follow and straight forward. You use this system twice a day. First, use the cleansing foam and let it set for a couple of seconds and massage the product on your face. Second, after cleansing use the clarifying lotion. First and every time you use this product you have to shake it up so the white solid product dissolve with the liquid. After you shook it take a cotton ball and apply it where your acne are at. This second product is the one I like the most. I could live without the other two products but this second product, I feel that it is the strongest thing that makes your pimple go away. But I would buy the whole set just because all three product works together to make your acne disappear. Plus in their own way they each contribute or should I say have their own way of making your acne smaller. Third, use the moisturizer and dot a small amount of product RIGHT on the acne spot only. Don't over use this moisturizer and apply only on area of where your acne are because if you apply too much it will dry your skin out. This is pretty easy to follow and I'm sure anyone can follow it. I've been using this set for a month now and my acne has be gone. Sometimes I just use the cleanser and the clarifying lotion only because my acne are big so I leave out the moisturizer because it tend to be strong and will cause your skin to get dry, very dry. How do I know? For the last 2 weeks I've been using all three products and sometimes I over use the moisturizer and it made my skin very dry and flaky. Overall, this is probably the BEST product I have used that made a difference in my acne. I'm very impress with this product and yes I will be buying it again and for friends and family. By the way, I forgot to say that my sister tried it for 3 days and she said the same thing. Her pimples went away and disappear. Thanks for reading and I hope you give this set a try because it is worth all the money you pay for whether it's $32 or $26!


Hmmm...I had a long day today. I woke up around 9am to get dress and ready to help out at some relative's place. I came back home yesterday at 6pm from Minnesota and yes, I was very tire. These couple of days I've been very tire. I did get to stop by at the Albertville, MN outlet while I was up there. Wow, was it crowded on Saturday. There was tons of sale and that outlet was huge! It's even bigger then the one in Kansas City. I didn't get a chance to go to some of the stores that I wanted but at least I did get to shop at the CCO. I was hoping that there'll be plenty of things that will catch my eyes but there wasn't. I was hoping that they'll have more items than those that I've been to in Wisconsin but there was less stuff there. I would say pretty much 75% of the MAC items there I had it all. I was disappointed because it was a waste of 45 minutes drive from Saint Paul to Albertville. Oh, well I did pick up quick a few eyeshadow. I will be hoping to go to Johnson Creek and Aurora's Outlet this week! On the way home we past by Baraboo's outlet which has a CCO but my hubby says since this week we're "supposely" going to Wisconsin Dell. I can't wait! I'm so excited! I'll get to go to all three outlet this week! Even though I have been to the one in Johnson Creek a few time while I was here but I want to see if they have any new items that I want.
As I have blog before I didn't want to go to Minnesota but I'm glad that I went. I got to meet new people and they all were very nice to me and kind. It was boring at some part of the day but it was well worth it. I did get to go to the outlet that I wanted and got to go to some old places. It was a nice travel. Well, this is it I'm tie and kind of bumb out right now. I did get to see lots of babies today and some old faces. Thanks!

Quick Update

Hey, guys how was your day today. For me it was a great day. I got to go shopping in the after noon and in the morning I did some cleaning and checking up on my things, just in case I've lost any items. I have so much with me that I'm not sure if I'm missing any thing or not. I went to Gurnee, IL today and got some goodies. I mostly spent all my money at Abercrombie. I got so much out of my bucks today! If you're in Gurnee, IL I would recommend that you go and shop at abercrombie if you like they're style of clothing because almost every thing is on sale in there. You will find lots of deal and good things. I kind of regret buying some flip flops and a few clothing but I felt that I've bought everything that I went there for! On the way home we stop by the outlet again and I went in to pick up some single eyeshadow, an eyeshadow palette and a cream color base in fresh morning. Yeo, this is pretty much it for me... I'm going to MN tomorrow so it should be interesting and fun. Haha...Idk but I hope that I will be persuasive enough to convince someone to take me to the outlet over there and to Mall of America. I haven't been there since forever, I'm not that excited about the mall but I want to do some recycling at the MAC store and maybe get some empty blush palette. Oh, I'm so excited but unsure at the same time. Well, hope you guys enjoy your weekend as for me, I'm not quite sure how I feel. I'm kind of bum out and we all know my weekend is going to be pretty interesting. See ya! BTW pictures of my haul will be up. Later!

Weekend Update

On Friday, I plan to take photos with some of my hubby's side of the family. They wanted to take photos with me so yes, I will have to wake up early to look nice in the photos. Then in the afternoon my in-law plan to go up to Minnesota and asked us to tagged along. I don't want to go up there that early so I hope that my hubby can convince them to hold out until Friday night or Saturday morning (ealry morning). I want to go to the outlet up there and malls up there but I doubt I'll have the chance since the in-law are coming. I feel awark and weird. I really want to since we're driving up there for 5 whole hours (sigh). Maybe I need to do some brainstorming and do some convincing. I was told that we won't be back til Sunday but I have a change of plan. I don't want to sleep over and I want to come home early so I will have to do some convincing to my hubby (I doubt it'll work but it's better than nothing). I'm so depress when I think about it because I don't want to go at ALL but I have no choice. I want to spend the weekend with my sister since next week she'll be having lots of visitor over at her place. I feel so sad and depress just thinking about it. Somehow I don't want any part of this I wish I could just stay back. *sigh* Well, this is about it so bless me guys and hope that my charm works on him..wink wink!


Today, I went to Chicago, IL. Me, my sister, my daugther, my hubby and my sis's bf went to Lincoln Park Zoo. It was amazing and big. There was lots of walking and I was glad to have my mule on. I didn't know that there was such thing as "a free zoo." I was amaze when I found out that this zoo is free. It's a zoo but located right on the park that's why it's called Lincoln park zoo. The zoo and the park are right next to each other. I was planning to do some shopping at Gurnee Mills Mall and Gurnee Outlet and maybe even in Chicago but things didn't go as planned. I woke up at 7am and we all left together at 11am (after eating lunch) and we got there at 1pm (i think or around 12:30, 12:45 since we had to drive around to look for parking). Well, I was surprise that I had survive without going shopping the whole day. I'm looking forward to shopping at the Gurnee Mall and outlet tomorrow. Yes, I did take photos at the zoo so when I do get home I will post them. I had lots of fun today and saw lots of animals. So if you live in Chicago I'm pretty sure you have been to this zoo but for those who have not, it's worth it because it's FREE and you only pay for parking. Thanks guys and I hope ya enjoy your weekend.

Hey, guys yes, I'm here in Wisconsin already. Yesterday, was my sister's graduation I'm so proud of her. After her graduation, we went out to eat and yes, lots of photos. I didn't bring my cable cord for my camera so I'll have to wait till I get home to upload these photo. I have so much on my mind and many things to do and blog about but at the moment I'm tire and restless. These few days have been really fun and I've been really enjoying it I've been spending time with 2 of my step sister and my cousin(one who brings back so many memories). Today, I went shopping at the Prime Outlet in Pleasant Pairie and yes got me some goodies and good things. I went to the CCO first and got these MAC eyeshadow: humid, electra, go, woodwinked(a very popular one), satellite dream, rose blanc, fascinating ruby smokey eyeshadow palette(the smokey one from this past x-mas collection), cocomotion pigment, blonde's gold pigment, pastore pigment, mocha and pink swoon blush, and a clinique SPF 50 for my sister (yes, the one that graduated).

My next store was the designer fragance and cosmetic company. My sister bought some kind of exfoliator from Lancome, a moisturizer and an eye cream. I got:
-renergie eye cream
-visibily smooth and renewing moisturizer
-caban sunset eyeshadow palette (there's 4 pan and they're huge bigger than MAC pans and they're bronzy eyeshadow)
-eyeshadow in: honeymoon (highlight yellowish color), provence (matte purple), rose quartz (satin rose ), volcano (smokey grey)

I also bought honeymoon and provence for my sis as well. My experience at DF&CCO is neutral. The customer service could have been better but me finding the items and things I needed was great!

My third store was at bath and body outlet. I got 2 makeup remover face wipes for 1.99 each, a country apple hand sanitizer, 1 medium size makeup bag in black by CO BIGELOW for 6 dollars which retail price is $60. That bag was a bargain because it's medium size but when you open it up there's so much room inside of it for your makeup. There's 4 slot one on the front and back and then 2 main one in the middle. I tried it out with my makeup that I've just bought and wow, was I amaze! It has so much room, I might even go back and buy me another one. The one thing I don't like about it is that it doesn't have a handle so it'll be easier to carry it around but it's a really great bag for a really good price!

Last, I went to Coach. I bought me an over the shoulder bag, one where you can wear it over your head and chest. It's pink and I was so surprise they had it in pink. It's the new style so it's unique and different from the rest I've seen. At the last minute, I saw another one I wanted and it was in brown but my sis told me to wait and experience my pink one first, to see if I like it. If I do then I will go back and get the brown one. The brown one is their signitature style but it's different in a way that no one has it yet (not that I've seen of). So this is pretty much it and what had happen these two days. Hope ya enjoy and I know it would have been better with my photos up but like I say when I get back I will be posting my items up. Thanks guys and see ya later!

Midnight Sun

I haven't told ya but I am a big big fan of the saga Twilight. I have all 4 books including the director's book. I'm so in love with this saga and yes, I am finish with all four books. I also own the DVD. Midnight Sun is the fifth book that is going to be release but I've been lucky enough to have read it so far. I'm so in love with Edward Cullen not Robert Pattinson, maybe 25% only but definitely Edward is my prince charming! Any who, I'm enjoying reading midnight sun right now and yes, it's so interesting. All four books are basically from Bella (the main girl) point of view but this fifth book is from Edward's point of view. Even though this fifth book is a re-run of twilight except from Edward's point of view and thinking I think that this is better and more exciting then Twilight. It's so fascinating and interesting. Gosh, I'm so in love with this saga. Right now I'm on page 93 (I think). I've been slacking off on this fifth book because it's online and not an actual book that I can carry anywhere and read it. This is why I've been slacking off and not really paying attention on it. Well, it's not that I don't want to but lately I've been so busy and every time when I'm on the net I'm always so busy doing other makeup! LOL! Well, just to round up this collection it's worth buying it because it's so fascinating and you'll learn so much thing from it. This collection is worth every penny that you'll pay for it, you won't be disappointed. Thanks and I know I haven't done a full review on this collection but trust me you'll thank me later and for all those who do own this saga you good it is!


This is a quick update. I've have tons and tons of things I want to post and talk about but I'm always so busy that I forget to upload photos and then I would forgot the topics I wanted to talk about. Just a little update to let ya know that I have so much on my mind and so many things I want to tell ya about but such little time. Love ya!


Hey, guys I'm leaving tomorrow to go to Wisconsin. I can't wait and I'm so excited. It's my sister's graduation, she's getting her bachelor. I'm so proud of her. Yep, there'll be lots of shopping and lots of photos. I can't wait to go the the CCO and get me more more MAC cosmetics to my collection. I'll be getting lots of girly girl stuff ! Whoooh! I think this will be my first blog with photos of me and my family. Thanks guys and hope ya enjoy the next few weeks as I will! Love ya!

Hot tools Curler

I bought mine from and heard about these many many times and thought that it was time I give it a try. It isn't what I had expected it to be. I thought the result was going to be "oh, wow!" After trying these out for a couple of months now it isn't all that as people have raved about it and review about it. I do like these curler heat up so fast that you don't even have to wait. The result of the 3/4 is very nice for prom look and if you want really tight curler. The 1 1/4 inch doesn't keep my curl in. I don't know if my hair is way too straight(naturally) or what but it doesn't keep the curls in even after all the hairspray stuff. I saw pursebuzz review long time ago but the result of mine didn't look anything like hers. I've got a 1 1/2 inch curler from conair and it keep my curl in even though I had to wait a while to release the clamp and sometime the conair one doesn't curler all of my hair. It curls some part and not some other. With the hot tool one, I had to keep going back to curl my hair to make it stay. So after curling this section I had to go back to the last one and re-curl everything. was awful! Right after you curl it, you'll get a curl but once your hair cool you lose the curl. I'm going to give it a try because I want that romantic, loose curl with the 1 1/4 inch curler and review more about that particular curler. The 3/4 inch curl well but it's the 1 1/4 inch that I'm having trouble about. I was planning to order more from hot tools but after this one experience I'm holding back and thinking more about it.

3/4 inch

1 1/4 inch

These can be found on many websites so I suggest you google it. You can find these in your local sally beauty supply. They do carry different version these but just slight different with the name call helen of troy and instead of metal it's plastic. I've heard that these metal one are far more better then the plastic purple ones so I would say to stick to these. BTW, I got mine for a bargain from Ulta when they were having a hot tool sale.

Enzo Milano

I've found the perfect hair curl that'll give anyone those soft, loose curl but at the same time a little wave to it. Yes, it will give you that soft wavy look like celebrity or even on model. Yes, I am so in love with this curler and I've wored it three times so far and it gives me just a different look that I've never had with any other curler. This is my perfect hairstyle if I'm going out in the evening, special occassion or even on days when I'm all dress up.

This curler comes in all different size and can be found on a lot of different site online. You can purchase it directly from their site but I've order mine from ebay. Thanks to miss Beautyforyou blog that I've read about it and order mine immediately. I aso got my picture from her blog, I figure why not use her and skip all the uploading and etc. I've enjoy reading her blog and reading her opinions on items so if you like to read her blog type in beautyforyou and I'm pretty sure she'll appear somewhere online. Any how, the ebay seller is highly reccomend, a power seller and super fast shipping. Well, I guess it's super fast to me because I live closer to him.

I knew I wanted this curler the minute I saw it. I didn't even hesitate to order it. It probably took me less then 10 minutes to order it. I knew just from reading that I was going to enjoy this. Than I saw miss beautyforyou's blog pictures of her hair result and just fell deeper in love with it. I don't t'think I'mgoing to order any curler for now because I've been searching long enough and found "the one."

I'm so in love and happy about this curler that I've told almost everyone about it. Trust me you won't be disappointed. I did find that it did take a little longer to style your hair then usual because it doesn't have the clamp on and you have to hold your hair while curling. But the outcome of it is worth it!

Tell me your thoughts about this brand if you have tried any of his curler.
