Football season is here. YES! For some this means nothing, but for me and my family it means party time! Actually, right now I am sitting in a friends house watching football and eating all that good stuff. For instance:

Yum, yum, and yum!!!
Hope you all have fun this season, ROLL TIDE ROLL!!!
Okay, I'm done now, bye.

10 Beauty Tricks

This past week I have come across two things, one not so fun thing, and one exceptionally good thing. So to get on to the bad thing because that is where long and boring story starts... ;) Well, my sister Ashley so kindly let me use her lipstick Sunday morning, but I had forgotten that three days earlier she had come down with strep throat. The doctor said after twenty-four hours she would not be contagious... I beg to differ. Do you see where this is going? I got *strep. Noooo!!!!
Anyways, after a whole day of being in bed sleeping, or watching T.V., I felt as if I needed to step it up. So the next day I got dressed, did my makeup, and because I really didn't want to, I came across some tricks!
  1.  Put on moisturizer with spf before makeup. It gives it a solid foundation without wearing foundation, and it protects your face. You can also get tinted moisturizer, like BB cream, or I use the e.l.f. kind with spf 20
  2. Vaseline - petroleum jelly is a great moisturizer, and does not clog your pores.
  3.  Hold your lip stick under a blow dryer for five seconds for a creamy and longer stay.
  4. White eyeshadow makes blue eyes pop! 
  5. Pink eyeshadow makes brown eyes standout.
  6. Dampen your hair when braiding to keep it in the right place.
  7.  Put your hair into 4 buns at the top of your head (after you get out of the shower and have brushed you hair) for lushes curls in the morning. (Tutorial to come!)
  8. Give your hair texture or curls when braiding (unwashed hair works perfectly). 
  9. Place a sponge into a larger baby food jar and pour nail polish remover into it for this...   Make Your Own DIY Nail Polish Remover-in-a-Jar
  10. Dip your earing in petroleum jelly for an easy insert.

Hope you got something out of these tricks and tips, now if you'll excuse me, I am going to go eat a popsicle. Bye!!

Book Review: Divergent

Beatrice Prior has always struggled with being selfless. But how could she be struggling? Being selfless is in her blood, Abnegation is the faction in her blood. She is definitely not Candor (honest), probably not Amity (peaceful), she never wanted to be Erudite (intelligent) because of the hatred between Abnegation and Erudite. But she always felt pretty Dauntless (brave). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds have to choose between all five factions. Beatrice knows she has to make a choice between her family and what she wants. She decides on something that not only surprises her family, but also herself.
There have been mixed feelings about this book and if it is appropriate for whatever ages. I read it expecting it to be like the Hunger Games. I personally think it is fine for twelve-year-olds. I understood the plot and would not take my eyes off the book. Divergent was written by Veronica Roth. It has 487 pages. It was published 2011. 

Hope you enjoyed this review. Have fun reading.
