Little House- My Favorite Song Right Now

I'm sorry... I know I promised I'd write more Beauty Related articles... but I just needed to share this song and I don't think my FB friends appreciate it as much as I'd like.    =T

"Little House" is a gorgeous song that I fell in love with instantly.
It's from the "Dear John" movie soundtrack and sung by the actress Amanda Seyfried.  She has such a beautifully haunting voice and I love the lyrics.  I think I have a  new girl crush... and a new song to play on repeat.

I love how songs can mean different things to the person who hears it.
It's amazing how a song can become a part of your life... and this is definitely a song that will have significance to me.

*This song makes me not want to be afraid of the what if, to take chances, and reminds me how beautiful love can be.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.       =)

*~ Have a Beautiful Day!~*

The World Does Not Revolve Around iRene- Why it's been Me, Me, Me.

"My significant other right now is myself, which is what happens when you suffer from multiple personality disorder and self-obsession"

So I know I haven't done as many beauty-related articles this past month.  My apologies.
A few reasons for this:

*~ Angels in The City of Angels ~*

Alone, all alone
Nobody, but nobody
Can make it out here alone.
- Maya Angelou

Today is my last day in L.A.
Even before I left to come, I felt God watching out for me:  Bobby dropped me off at Viv's in the rain at 1 a.m., Viv dropped me off at JFK at 6 in the morning, and my cousin John picked me up from L.A.X.

Wherever I go, God has blessed me with wonderful people in my life.
Here are some of the people God brought into my life while I was in the City of Angels.

1 Week in La La Land

So I have officially been in L.A. for over a week... and I'm loving every minute of it!

Initially, I wanted to get a part time job here.  And I actually could have gotten some work... but when I told them I'm only here for a month.. it was plain to see (by their expressions) that that was pointless.

So, I am here to enjoy the sun, clean up my life, make some new contacts, and study on my own to become the best makeup artist I can be.
How am I going to do that? Well.... I can't give away ALL my secrets!  ;)

L.A. Makeup Show Review

I've been a bad bad girl.
No, I haven't gotten arrested  in L.A. or run off to Vegas to marry a cute boy I met at a bar
(You can all breathe a sigh of relief)
The trouble I'm talking about is one of my biggest FOES.... my shopping habit.
