Wow, this works!

So today I has been very crazy. At my school I had to do a math project where we had to sing and dance about math. The themes were 50's, 60's, 70's, and 80's! We got excused from all of our classes to do this. The sun was shining and it was very hot! Everyone was sweating. All the girls crazy make-up was sliding off their faces! Accept for mine! I used Revlon Pinch Me Gel Blush. It really worked it kept my cheeks a pretty rosy color. It didn't sweat off at all! Its really easy to use. I bought it at Target last weekend and it was on sale for 8 dollars. It was way worth it. Just make sure that when your done applying it you wash your hands! Have fun!

P.S. There are different shades so you don't have to get one as bright as the picture is.

Do you journal?

I know I do! It not only helps you relieve anger, its also relaxing. I love to write in my journal and then look back at it! Well today I have a tip. Its about the ways I journal. What I do is I open Microsoft Word and I type out my entry and then I save it onto a flash drive! Its so simple plus you can decorate your flash drive anyway you want too. You can save pictures and change your font color. Its really cool. Plus no one will ever no whats on there. The only thing is you need to keep it away from everyone in your room in a drawer so they won't over ride it thinking its empty. I recently switched back over to regular journaling because I like to sit outside with mine and write! To find the best quality and low price one go to Target! They have some right by the check-out register. Well I hope this will help you relieve stress, tension, and anger. Have a stress-free day!

Also please check out my friend Livy's blog! She is having a contest! Her link is located on my page! The name of her blog is Fresh Ideas For You.

Looking for a yummy drink?

I have found the best drink ever! I absolutely love it, its my substitute for soda. Its called Snapple! Ever heard of it? They have ice teas, juices, vitamin waters, and diet teas. There are so many flavors! My favorite is Peach Tea. There really isn't any flavor I don't like. The best part about Snapple is its actually good for you! There are some with antioxidants, hydration, Vitamin D, calcium, and much more! You can even choose ones with caffeine or no caffeine. The reason I like to drink Snapple is because I know it is better than soda. Plus I have braces and it isn't as hard on them as it is with soda. (Just remember to brush your teeth after you drink it if you have braces.) I also love how under ever Snapple cap there is a fun fact. Like for instance it could say "An ostrich has 3 eye lids," or "A crocodile can not move its tongue." There are drinks that are sweet and non-sweet. They just have some plain Green Tea's too which I also like. So if I were to rate Snapple out of 10 stars I'd give it a 9.5. Hope this helps improve your health.

Sexy Little Things...

By Victoria Secret! They have perfumes, lip glosses, mints, and gum! I love them all! I want to tell you about their Shiny Lip Balm. It is moisturizing like a chapstick but is shiny like a lipgloss. Plus it has a tint with it! The little design is so cute because its in the shape of lips and whatever color lips it is that is the color of the lip balm. Its a quick easy way to touch up any look! Plus its last a good amount of time. The only down side is you have to use your finger to apply. It may get messy! So what I do to put it on is I use a lip brush and apply it to my lips so my fingers don't get the gloss also! I hope this will make you wanna run out and buy it! It is 12 dollars. So its high in price but I think its worth it! Have an awesome day!

Feeling yucky? Eat a salad!

Hey everyone! Last night I felt so lazy and gross because I've just been lounging around eating junk food. My little brother is in the hospital so that's all I can do! My mom doesn't want me to go and get sick so I stay home. So tonight she came home and my dad spent the night at the hospital with my little brother. Me and my mom were just sitting watching tv when we were both hungry so I volunteered to make salads! I made a bleu cheese salad. It contains: Dole Classic Romaine Salad, Croutons, Bleu Cheese salad dressing, and Bleu Cheese Crumbles. It was really good and healthy! It made me feel alot better! If you don't like this salad here's a link for another! Cesar Salad Happy salad making!

Rainy Days!

Right now where I live its raining. So I thought of some tips and research some on how to look fabulous even on a rainy day! Hope these help you!

Wear dark washed jeans, they don't shot the rain
spots as much as other jeans!

If you get cold easily but don't want a heavy jacket wear layers!

Wear water proof mascara!

Cream eye shadows work the best for humidity!

Wear capris so when your walking you won't get your jeans wet in the puddles!

If rainy days get you down wear a bright colored shirt to make you feel happy!

If you have curly hair wear it curly and add some anti-frizz cream in it!

If you have straight hair DON'T curl it. I'll come out within the first hour of being outside!

If you don't want your hair wet pull it into a loose bun or pony tail and tuck it under your hood.

Use an umbrella that matches the pattern or colors on your shoes! It looks super cute!

Have a nice day!

Only 90 calories?! Wow!

I found a snack that is only 90 calories! They are called Quaker Oat Mini Delights. There are 3 flavors buttered popcorn (with actual pieces of popcorn), chocolate drizzle (my favorite), and cinnamon. They all have a nice flavor to them that isn't over powering. I like to keep these with me in my purse when I shop so if I get tempted to go buy some sweet I just pull them out and eat them! It relieves my craving! I hope this tip helps all! Thanks for reading my blog. Have a lovely day! (:

Hope these helped a bit!

Beauty Survival kit?!

Hi everyone I thought you might like to hear about this tip! I like to keep (what I call) a beauty survival kit. I take it with me to school or in my purse. Its in a good sized bag. If I'm going somewhere in a hurry all I have to do is grab it and go!
This is what it contains:
Mini Mouthwash
Mini Lotion
Blotting Sheets (Clean and Clear)
Eye Liner
Hair Tie
Bobby Pin
Mini perfume
Aleeve (Thanks Livy!)
Emergency Money

Then I keep it all in a Victoria Secret bag that says Very Sexy on it and it has a zip open bottom on it with a mirror!

Tip of the Day!

Hello everyone! Welcome new readers (if there are any!) I have a tip of the day for you! Its about sunscreen! I was just watching tv and I saw a girl who was supppppperrrr tan and it was because she goes to tanning salons all the time. Her skin
was dark leathery and not pretty. So that reminded me to talk about the importances of sunscreen! Even in the winter time you have to wear sunscreen
on your face. Did you know that the sun is the closest in the winter and puts off the most radiation? (I just learned about this in my science class!) This
is the time where your face can get most damaged. I like to use the Clean and Clear oxygenating moisturizer with SPF 15 in it! You can also use this in
summer. If you like to tan in the summer you should
still use sunscreen! What I like to do is get tanning oil with SPF 15 in it! Where I live I can wear SPF 40 and I can still get a tan! (I live in AZ.) I hope these helped! If you have any more questions go ahead and ask me!

xoxo, Tori

Heavy Metal...

Eyeliner by Urban decay! I just got it yesterday its so pretty! Its glitter eyeliner but its black and it has all different color glitter in it. I really like it there are other colors too! It can be for prom, clubbing, or just for the day. Its really fun and it brightens up any color eyes! Anyone who buys this please comment so I know you like or hate it! Here's a picture I got the farthest one on the left! You can't really see the sparkles as well since its a picture but its really pretty in person! It costs 16 dollars. High priced but its worth it and it lasts long.
You can find it at Ulta or Sephora and online! I will keep on buying these as long as they keep making them! These glitter eyeliners are my new love! I will never buy any other brand of glitter eyeliner again!


We all know that shaving can be a pain. Getting razor burns, cuts, or a rash. Here are some tips to help you with your shaving problems! A really good razor that I use is the Venus Breeze. It has a nice flexible head that has a razor surrounded by one big moisturizing strip. It is designed to move to fit your curves where you shave. If you don't like that kind of razors there is a disposable one by Venus that I have used before too. Its called Venus Embrace. It has a comfy grip for you to hold. For shaving cream you can use Satin Care. They have many many different kinds and flavors! For shaving your under arms here's a tip. Under arm hair grows in all different directions. So to get a close long lasting shave you should gently shave in different directions to get all of it!

I found this awesome nail polish! It has like 4 different colors in it! If you move your hand from side to side the way the light reflects on it changes the colors! Its really pretty! I have gotten a lot of complements on it. Its by Rimmel London. You can find it at Ulta and its $1.99.
Hope you guys like it!

Fuze Lip Gloss!

If you like the drink then you'll love this! They made a Fuze lip gloss! It looks so good! I might go to Sephora this weekend to get it! It comes in 3 flavors. Blueberry raspberry, dragon fruit lime, and strawberry melon. It is sort of high price but I was going to look at the display ones to see if it was really worth it. Its $18.50 right now. I thought that everyone might like this since the drinks are yummy I thought the lip gloss might be too!

Max Factor Make-up.

Max factor is a really good brand. I use alot of their products. Such as their eye liner, eye shadow, concealer, lip gloss, and much much more! They have awesome eye shadow with all different colors. That also goes for eye liner too! They just came out with a new product called Vivid Impact Highlighting Mascara. This isn't just any old mascara though! It has two sides one is a plain color like black, brown, etc. You apply that one all over your eyelashes. Then there is another side that is like blue, pink, gold, silver, and more! You apply that color just to the tips of your eye lashes and it works as a highlighter for them. I haven't tried this product yet but I think I will soon. Once I do try it I'll update everyone about it!

Thursday, February 7, 2008

How to keep your make-up looking fresh!

Do you ever apply make-up and its off within 3-4 hours because of sweat, humidity, or whatever else?! Well I have some tips to help you make your make-up look fresh all day! If your skin gets oily through out the day you can use Clean and Clear's Oil blotting sheets. I have a pack and I like to keep them in my make-up bag (or as I like to call it my to-go bag because everything is mini!) Then whenever my face gets oily I use one of the sheets and blot gently and it doesn't smear my make-up. Plus it gives your face a nice fresh smell! Another way to keep your make-up looking fresh is MAC charged water/renewal defense. There are many different brands of the spray if you look it up on the Internet you can find a way cheaper brand than MAC! You just spritz it on when your face feels dry. I hope these tips help you. If you have any ideas for my blog go ahead and comment and I'll make it happen!

Urban Decay Primer Potion!

Urban decay has a primer potion that is fantastic. You apply it on your eye lids before your eye shadow and it makes your eyeshadow glow and last a lot longer. Your eye shadow doesn't crease at all! It is a creamy formula in a cute unique bottle. It costs $16. You can find it at Ulta or Sephora. The reason why I love it is because when I did a swatch of my eye shadow on my hand without the primer potion it was boring. Then I did another swatch of the same color eyeshadow but put the primer potion on before and it transformed my eyeshadow and made it look like a brand new eyeshadow! It helps it last longer too. When I mean transformed I do not mean a new color just a brighter and bolder version of the one you had before. My eyeshadow never fades when I'm done using this. A tip is you put it on then wait about 30 seconds to a minute to dry. Then put on your eyeshadow. It helps it so its easier to put on. If you still are debating to buy this product they always have samples out at the store. So do a swatch on your hand like I did. It bought me over and I didn't even know anyone that had it or has used it!

Jane Shimmering Blush

Hi everyone! I just started using this new product called Jane Shimmering Blush. I have naturally rosy cheeks and this helps them stand out more! It helps prevent oil and gives you a gorgeous shimmer all day! Plus it has a compartment on the bottom that has a mirror and holds a brush. The color I have is Roses. It costs about seven dollars. Its really worth it, the shimmer is amazing but not over powering. I like how its very easy to put on and it doesn't make a big mess. There are four different colors you can get it in. You can find it at stores like Walgreen's, Target, and Walmart. Its easy to travel with since the brush stays in the bottom compartment. You just pop it into your purse and go!

Having trouble finding a hairstyle?

Are you trying to find a hairstyle but you can't find one to fit your face shape? Well here are some tips to help you find a cute hairstyle you'll love!

Round face:
Your face is as wide as it is long.

Longer than it is wide.

Narrow at the jaw line, wide at the cheekbones/forehead.

Widest at cheekbones, narrow forehead and jaw line with same length.

Wide forehead and strong wide jaw line.

You can pretty much wear any hair style! I have an oval face shape and I absolutely love wearing all the different hairstyles!

Short to medium lengths. Fullness at the sides of your face. Soft wispy bangs. You'll want to balance the look of a long and slender face. Soft wispy bangs will shorten the appearance of the length. Fullness at the sides of your face will add width to the look of your face shape.
By cutting the hair into a short or medium length, the outline of the cut will also shorten the look
of the length of the face. Layers work great with your face shape, as they will add softness
to the straight lines in your face. Try side parts, and you may be able to wear straight back styles.

Hair styles with fullness and height at the crown. Off center parts. Short hair styles with a swept-back direction or hair styles that are longer than chin length. By layering the top to
achieve fullness and keeping the rest of the cut relatively close to the face, your face shape will appear longer and narrower.

Chin-length or longer styles. Side-parted hair styles. Swept-forward layers around the upper face, gently wispy bangs. A chin length bob is great on your face shape!
This creates a balanced look by giving fullness where you need it. You can wear shorter styles, however, if you are a dramatic heart shape you need to
leave weight in the back nape area. This will achieve more balance between your dramatic cheekbones and more narrowing chin.

Your face shape is balanced and dramatic. Try a variety of styles. Almost everything works with your face (as long as you are a true diamond). You can wear shorter styles, however if you are a dramatic diamond shape you need to leave weight in the back nape area like a heart shaped face. This will achieve more balance between your dramatic cheekbones and more delicate chin line.

Period tips.

There is probably 1 in a million girls who enjoy there period.
So here are some tips to help you get through the week.


Avoid salt and caffeine this may make your cramps worse
Drink plenty of water
Take your vitamins
Take a brisk walk to help cramps
Heating pads
Hot baths
Lose clothing (such as your favorite sweat pants)
Don't wear a tampon when you have cramps


Drink water
No salty snacks
Small exercise


If on the go keep a tide stain remover stick with you
wash with cold water then peroxide and then in the washer
treat the stain asap so it won't set into the clothes.

Discreet ways to carry tampons/pads:

Have a small make-up bag that you keep make-up in as well as pads/tampons
Always take your make-up bag to the bathroom with you so no one will suspect anything.
If you have a long sleeved shirt on you could slip it up your sleeve at school.
For tampon users you can switch to Tampax Compact Tampons.
These really work well! They can fit into the palm of your hand!

I use midol and it works absolutely great for me!
I have the midol complete.
It relieves cramps, bloating, fatigue, backache, and headache

Also they have Midol Pre-menstrual relief and it helps PMS.

Is it that time of the month?

That time again? Have you always thought that your period could never be used for good?
Well now it can! All you have to do it buy always pads and it sends
femmine supplies over to Africa to help the women.
This could really help the girls not miss school. Did you know that every time they get
their period each month they could miss up to a week of school!
Also if you don't like to use pads you can use Tampax tampons.
They are also a part of it. You can also buy a shirt and they will donate the money to
The website.
Hope you can be a part of this!

xoxo, Tori

Cream Eye Shadow

I have found the best cream eye shadow.
It is by Rimmel London and it is called Stir it up cream shadow.
It comes in gorgeous colors. It works great in the heat when you sweat or in humidity. It doesn't come off unless you want it too! It costs seven dollars each. I love this product because I can wear it for any occasion. I love almost all Rimmel London products. They are a great affordable brand. Keep a watch out for more posts about Rimmel London!
Here are some pictures of it.
You can find these at Ulta Beauty Stores.
