Monkeys, Penne, Brownies

OKO... The titles of my posts as I have realised recently, are MAJORLY BORING! So, I'm going to find a way to spice up these titles, either that or I may just have a really boring life, like hasn't that thought crossed my mind a million times.
Suddenly while blogging, I get the oddest craving for brownies... random sauce anyone? Ok, this post is as random as I'll let it get for one night. You probably think I'm going out of it hahah. Well, maybe I just am..

Anyway, for more random sauce from me, follow my twitter! I try to tweet often, not saying much of it will make sense, but.. it'll be random OF COURSE!

Follow me! TWEEEEEET!

Exams!

I've been having mostly challenge related posts lately because at the moment those are easier to think up. If you didn't know, it's because I have final exams that I haven't actually blogged as much. Though, I'm trying to keep my YouTube and Twitter accounts lively. (So you can follow me on either of those, I'll place so links to each).
I tweet, You tweet, Let's Tweet!
Tequila Sunset...Lastest Tutorial (may be doing a post on this)

I had a productive week, or at least I think so. I've just completely finished studying for my foundation exam (Caribbean Civilisation) and I'm almost finished studying for Earth Science, which are both this week. So I'm really happy about that now! Not to mention, I have started to study bits and pieces for my exams next week (Biochemistry and Chemistry) and I will go full speed on those starting from tomorrow. I think it's actually some pretty good time-management or rather self-management (if I do say so myself hehe). The occasional distractions from messenger, Facebook, and family actually did a lot more good than bad, sometimes you do have to slow down and break, and I can say now, that I am sort of happy for those distractions (though I'd never say it to them lolol).

During the long weekend, actually on Sunday, I almost broke my sleep record. Oh yeah, in case I never said this.. I'm a connoisseur of a good sleep hahaha, and I mean it! If I have nothing to do or I'm just really tired, I WILL sleep until the cows come home.. or the bed flips over, whichever happens first. Sunday, I slept a total of 17 hours, you could call it straight if intermittent periods of light slumber count. I know it sounds really lazy, but believe me when I say I have been beating the books and they have been putting up a good fight. I have had so many late nights, the thing is though, I just seem to do my studying best at night when all is quiet or when no one is around. So anyway, exhausted as I was, I slept 17 hours, my current record is 18 hours. Needless to say, I was completely well rested and ready for the day.. well actually the night, but I digress.
All in all, nothing special this Easter, just some good old studying.

I hope everyone has enjoyed their Easter weekend, and continues to enjoy the Easter vacation for those who are on vacation. For those like me with final exams, I'd like to wish you the best of luck, happy studying and MASH UP THOSE EXAMS!

30 Day Song Challenge- Day 7 & 8

Another day some more songs... I have so forgotten this already HAHAHA.

Day 07: A song that reminds you of a certain event
Reminds me of an event... hmmm. I think I'd choose Higher than High by Machel Montano because it reminds me of the days when I used to play steel pan with my school band and that song was one of the most fun ones I remember. We went to many events and played that song and I just remember always having a blast.


Day 08: A song that you know all the words to
Ok so there would be tons of songs in this category because I always like to look up the lyrics to songs I'm currently liking. But for this one, I'll put one of my favourite Lady GAGA (woooot) songs :). Enjoy PAPARAZZI!

30 Day Song Challenge- Day 5 & 6

Here's day 5 & 6, hope you enjoy :)


Day 05: A song that reminds you of someone


There are a lot of songs that remind me of someone, but currently it would have to be Rolling in the Deep by Adele. Not only do you feel everything that she's saying and she's a great singer, but this song is very potent and well-sung. I cannot say enough about the meaning within the words and the singer's voice. So here we have it Rolling in the Deep.

Day 06: A song that reminds of you of somewhere
I'm not sure of this at the moment but I'll update this post with a song to fill this gap. UPDATE!
So I remember this song called Palance, it reminds me of a trip to Trinidad and a great party with fellow science students. Everyone was dancing and having fun, despite the rough week we had. It was really a great experience. (this is actually the first time I have seen this music video, and I can admit, I like the randomness lol, where did Cookie Monster come from??)





Well I'm off for now, test to write and studying to do!
XOXO

TOOTH FAIRY!

Hello all, I don't even know why I'm excited but, my wisdom teeth are coming up!!! I know right most people are bummed by the thought and the pain that comes along with them, but so far so good. I recognised it like 1 week or so ago. I'm hoping that mine doesn't decide to hurt me like some people's. Maybe I'll be lucky ^__^.
So anyway, that's the end of this post, I have like nothing more to say haha... Oh wait exams are around the corner and I may post less. But I don't want to do that because I already lost so little. I will try to keep up :)

Smiles and Tooth fairy dreams!
XOXO

30 Day Song Challenge- Day 3 & 4

Here's today's two songs! (Would have had them up earlier, but I had to study..    -__-)


Day 03: A song that makes you happy
This would have to be Gee by SNSD (Girls' Generation), it's really catchy and bouncy. And although it's in korean, I know some of the words hehe and mumble, sing and dance along. It is definitely a sugar-coated song, the theme behind it is the typical love story, girl likes boy. You can listen to it here and read more on the lyrics below the video.


Day 04: A song that makes you sad

 Seems like I'm into the Asian songs in this post, but it's because I like to be diverse with my cultures and music, I actually have three songs for this category. The first song is from the "Fated To Love You" song track, this was the first really sad/ dramatic Asian drama (Taiwanese) I had watched and was actually quite funny at the same time. I don't know how they did it, but I loved it immensely. This is "Wo De Kuai Le", english name "My Happiness" by Walkie Talkie (Jin Xiu Er Chong Chang). I actually do know ALL of the words to this, strange I know, but again I really love this song. I tried to play the piano to this and being that I'm such a bum, it was pretty hard, but there are lots of covers on YouTube of it. Do enjoy!

The Next two songs are from the same drama, and this one was sadder from the first, I'm glad I watched this one after FTLY because it was a good transition into the saddest show that I have ever watched. I am currently watching "I'm Sorry, I love you", but that is the topic of another post. The drama I am talking about is "Autumn's Concerto" also known as "Next Stop Happiness", it is really a touching story. Anyway, the first song from this drama that I fell in love with was one of the opening songs "Wo Ai Ta" by Della Ding. I find It strange how FTLY had a similarly named song, but they were completely different years and i'm sure ideas have clashed many times in the entertainment industry. This song is very deep, you feel every emotion although it is not in English, which is a lot for a song to do, it gets its point across well. Once again I know the lyrics to this too hahaha, but I'm sure after you hear it you'd want to know them as well.

This final song is also from Autumn's Concerto, "Wo yi wei" by Victor Huang. I do not all the words to this one but I definitely understand the sentiment. This song puts my in a mood of solemness and deep thought. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

That's it for this post, maybe another in the next two days or so, depends on how studying goes.
XOXO

Day 01: Your favourite song 

Currently, I've been loving a lot of songs, but compared to all of the rest, I find myself waking up to this and remembering through the day. It seems to keep me peppy and happy, surprisingly. Of course I don't know all of the words, nor do I use the F- word as he does in this video and wished that the music video had the clean version, but it's still a great song over all. Definitely a pick you up when you're feeling down. Singing along and dancing! The Glee version of this is amazing too. I love them both!






Day 02: Your least favourite song
Um.. My least favourite song, I don't really think I have one of those on my list, but I will put on of my favourites.I'm very attached to my favourite songs so, I don't thing I could but one that I like more than the other, they all have different meanings to me. Rude Boy by Rihanna! BARBADOS REPRESENT!! This is really a fun and sexy song, and I love it. Enough said hahaha.

I haven't slept since 12 a.m

Hey all, just a random post. How was everyone's week, good I hope. I can't even remember half of mine hahaha, but that's just the randomness of my brain. 
As much as I do remember is that I have been sleeping some really weird hours, but it's working out pretty fine. I'd come home, then fall asleep 4 p.m. or 5 p.m or something like that  and wake up around 11 p.m or 12 p.m. which makes me miss quite a number of distracting things like T.V, but then it's nice and quiet and I can work much better. I was always a person to study at night or in the early hours of the morning, and I really find it very good that my body is setting it's pace for work (if you get what I mean). Exams are around the corner so, I really need to jump into exam mode. 
The only downside to this is, usually I have classes in the morning and if i study and then go back too sleep, I never want to wake up! HAHAHA. So this whole sleep early wake up in the night thing is both good and bad. 
I've been productive tonight though, editing a video, uploading it, writing a blog post on it and even studying as the video loaded. I should study some more because I have test coming up this week, so I 'll be ending this post.


Hope you all have a great weekend, not sure if i'll post any other time this weekend sadly. If you're reading this post, you could leave a comment about your sleeping and study habits. I'd love that, plus it would be like tips to help me out.
Cheers to the frickin' weekend!! (Photo courtesy of: www.alcohol-stuff.co.uk)

Tropical-ish Make up Look



Hey all, this look was requested by LeyaHollingsworth (on youtube, also known as my friend Ashley ^__^), from my Makeup Doll review/ 88 matte palette video. 
She asked me to do a tutorial with yellows, oranges and blacks, however I wasn't liking how the yellow was applying.. it was a little to close to my skintone and just blended in. So I will do another look when I get a completely white base where I do exactly that look. For this look, I reversed the order from yellow-orange purple to purple-orange yellow.  Sorry to disappoint if I did, but I hope you improve and attain more beauty products which will help me to create more outrageous looks. 
In the video, I was trying out a couple of things, slightly different backdrop, different camera settings, slightly different editing and voice overs. Please comment on the effectiveness of this style (that sounded like an exam question lolol).  


Oh yes, I was trying to show the proucts and colours in the videos, but I had gotten accustomed to the zoom on the camera so they all look really bad and none of the eyeshadow colours are shown on the screen. Thus I have taken a picture and circled the colours used. Usually I would use Adobe Photoshop for something like that, but I do not have it on this computer. Hope what I did in Paint will suffice. ^__^ Enjoy!


Looks like a 4 year old did this lolol



When I did this look I thought it was a lot more bright that it looks, but in pictures it doesn't look as bright, which may be a good thing.







Products used:
Botanics Soothing and Calming Eye Base
BH Cosmetics 88 Matte Palette
E.L.F. Shimmer Eye Pencil- White
E.L.F. Waterproof Eyeliner Pen- Black
Almay Pure Blends Mascara (97.5% natural yay!) - black brown
Avons Eyebrow Pencil- Tawny
Avons Ultra Luxury Lipliner- Neutral
E.L.F. Hypershine Lipgloss- Vixen
Boots Cheek Colour- Hollyhock

It's 4 a.m.

It's 4:39 a.m and I'm still awake, it's not like I have insomnia or something, just I went to sleep a little too early, earlier than usual so here I am finally completing work I should have done when I had gotten home. But I'm finished now and just chilled and prepping for bed. 
Recently I've gotten myself into another facebook game, this one is a classic though. From the makers of Restaurant City and Pet Society, Playfish presents...*drumroll* MONOPOLY MILLIONAIRES! I loved Monolpoly as a child, although most of the time I played it was by myself (blame if on being the last child haha), fun I had my fun. Like a year ago I would play Monopoly online with my friend and other players from around the world on this board game site, which sadly I can't remember the name of. We would spend hours just playing Monopoly, although this site made my computer fairly laggy, but I worked out something until I could play and still have other sites and applications open. (Did I mention that I love multi-tasking?)


At school whenever it was end of term, we would always play Monopoly, Uno or just cards, playing Monopoly Millionaires brings back a lot of old memories... sigh. (I'm not that old by the way, in case you were wondering haha). 
So this game is basically the same of the classic Monopoly with a few tweaks and interesting differences here and there. But mostly it's just like the old thing. I hope they don't even change the simplicity of this game as they have with Restaurant City and Pet Society, the only other Playfish games I play often, I also play Hotel City, I find I don't like that as much as the others two.


If you want to check this game out, I'll leave a link at the bottom of the page. But i'm going to be off to bed for now... while after my rolls are out hahahaha.


Don't you want to be a MONOPOLY Millionaire??  (Facebook link)




Disclaimer: This post is not sponsored by any company besides the boredom of my mind and some late night work. I just thought I should share this fun new, well not new, but classic game with you. Hope you check it out!

Reply to Messages/Events on Facebook?

So, some friends of mine have this really bad habit of NEVER EVER EVER replying to either messages, event pages or both on their Facebook. I would like to know if it's just me, but isn't Facebook supposed to be a SOCIAL NETWORKING SITE?  SOOOO, why is it so hard for people to stay connected to you? It's not like it's just me they're avoiding messages from, but I have experienced other instances where people set up event pages (which is time-consuming and takes work), send out messages and people either never RSVP to the event in the first place or reply to  the messages sent out by the organiser.


OOTD, FOTD and Footage of Carnival

Hey all, just a quick post for the video of Carnival. I decided to do an Outfit of the Day and Face of the Day with Ashley, but I didnt thing to take pictures too, hahaha. Anyway, everything's in the video.


PS: Don't worry about when the camera zoomed in and out and my speech got cut out, I didn't say anything important lol.


 That's all for now! ^__^

Complications of Infatuation

Hey everyone!! I had filmed a video about being too flirt and not flirty at all, and I finally decided to upload it because I didn't think it was good enough. Anyway, the video basically talks about persons who flirt too much and plays with the other person's feelings too much, versus a person who is more closed to their feelings and barely ever flirt (which I am one of). 


Playing with someone's feelings is not something to be proud of or do on purpose, because it hurts people deep down. Some girls in particular, purposely flirt and joke around with guys and when the guy is thinking he's getting somewhere closer to her heart, he's really miles a way. As many of my guy friends have been complaining, most girls just go "Oh, I was only playing", when the guy asks them a serious question. Seriously, this is just mean, it's like you saying you're dying and then bursting out laughing at my expression. IT HURTS, so girls and guys, if you're reading this, please try to be more considerate of the other. Be straight-up, let the other know that you just intend to have some fun and if you see it getting more serious than that, let them know, but don't just go ahead a play with people's hearts.
The result of playing around is usually someone who becomes just like them, flirty and hurt other people.. becoming a "Dog", a person who doesn't care about another's feelings. Or the opposite!


Which brings me to the next extreme, a person is very closed to their feelings. So most of the time, these people are considered cold(for lack of a better word) just because they don't always open up to their feelings. Really, being one like this, I always thought it was just easier to keep my feelings to myself, that way you can't get hurt. But really, it doesn't make any sense doing that, because if there's someone you like you find it near to impossible to tell them or even try to flirt. People like this usually find it hard to fully express their emotions, and cover them with a particular expression or activity, which is actually bad because then they miss out on so much, as the people they like by-pass them. What these people need, is a caring person to help them to open up, not just a flirty person to fool around with their heads, as it will make them even more closed.
I'm no expert, but in the experience, I've had, I find it is a bit better to be a bit more open although it is relatively hard, and I still can't fully express myself. 


I made this video to speak to these extremes of flirtation, the flirty and the cold. The best way to go is to be a bit of both, seek to stand in the common ground of flirting. Not too much and not too little, everything in moderation!


I hope this post helped someone and even if it didn't, it surely helped me to clear my mind on these thoughts. I hope to be a more open and inviting person. Thanks for reading! ^__^

I'm not dead!

Hey all, took me a while to post after Carnival last week.. or was that 2 weeks now?.. hmm EITHER-WAY, I'm not dead, nor have I gotten my blog! 
Carnival was fantastic! I had a ton of fun, although sadly one of my friends couldn't make it to the after-party. But it'll be summer soon and we'll all get to go to all the amazing parties and may be have some of our own. ^__^ I just cannot wait for SUMMER! 
I was going to post a video of Carnival as well as a quick outfit of the day with my friend Ashley, however I have not had a chance to edit my videos, and have only uploaded 2 old ones, but not to worry, I am still filming when I can, and trying hard to find the time to edit my videos. 
I will be starting a new segment on my channel which I am going to be calling "The Jitter Box". This is where I'll have some random talks/rants and it's just supposed to be kind of spur of the moment, but I'll try to stay on the course of the topic. May be I will put in the bloopers at the end of each, I really like watching other people's bloopers, and may be my subscribers would like to watch mine as well.
So the two videos which I posted were the bloopers for the Mock Botsy ad.. which sadly we didn't win the contest, but compared to those who were runners up and the winner, we were in the shadows. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Bubz for having such an AMAZING contest and congratulate the winner and runners up, I can see that just like ours a lot of thought and hard-work was put into the making of each video. To everyone else, I would also like to say that you did a great job and while watching the entries myself I was very impressed by some of the ideas of many of the commercials. It was overall a fun experience and we got to spend time with our friends to make these videos. (will add the link to the bloopers on the "Mock Botsy, the Fragrance" post)
The second video I uploaded was actually something that could be classified for The Jitter Box, as it was just a collection of thought on recent events (well actually not that recent now, but you get what I mean). I actually was not going to upload this video, but after some contemplation and friendly advice, I decided to. I will be writing a separate blog post on that topic. 


Well that's all for now, until the next post! Tweet Me!
