BEAUTY BOOK VI

3.22.2009 by Dizzy♥

So, the day that me & the cuzzo went out - we hit up M.A.C. cuz she wanted some pressed powder. Well, I'm proud to say.....I lost my M.A.C. v-card that day! :-) After wat seemed an eternity I ended up with these two lovely's:


The first is the Matte Eyeshadow in Fig. 1 (a deep plum shade) and their regular shadow in Expensive Pink (how ironic) lol, which is a gold-ish pink.
Needless to say, I love them! The guy at the store suggested these for my yellow undertone when I said I was looking for an 'everyday type' look and I usually favor golds. The pink shade is applied all over from lashline to eyebrow. Then the purple is dashed on on my outer corners and also along my lower lash line:
Sorry the pic isn't the greatest. But I must say I def. will be returning for more shades in the future. I've gotten mad compliments thus far whenever I wear them :-) Highly recommended!
Oh yeah, how could I forget - I got Lipglass too!!!!! (I swear I'm like a lil gurl in a candy store when it comez to makeup). This is Nymphette:

Which is another gold-ish pink shade, which kinda compliments the pink shadow. And it's not frosty at all, given its opaqueness. Lovez it!
Hope ya liked! Muahz.

Bleu Martini

3.21.2009 by Dizzy♥


So, last nite, maaad last minute ~ I went with my *favorite* cuzin & 2 of her co-workers to ^ this spot in Olde City, Philly. Good a** time! Lol

Tell me why I only had 1 pomegranate & 1 bleu martini and ur gurl was actually leaning a bit. ;-) The cuzzo says thats the difference between "top shelf" liquor & the rest. (Had to be ~ cuz Dizzy is nobody's lightweight lol. Not to mention we damn sure paid "top shelf" price for them). Tab clocked out at almost $250.

Sorry, no pics this time around either. Told u it was last minute! Imma get on it tho, I promise.

I swear, seeing old(er) ppl drunk is HILARIOUS. Actually, I think this was the first time I seen my cuz like drunk-drunk. Her co-workers were mad nice and funny as hell too. At first, I was jus doin my best to blend in wit the old-heads so it wasn't no issue. But I got thru the door smooth as hell so after that, & after my first (extremely strong) drink, I was def like f*** it. Lol Gotta admit - it was fun eyeing dudez as they walked in (we was rite by the door); them smiling @ me and me smiling back cuz I kno they ain't gonna get what they want. LMAO

I had to drive us home since I was the least-drunk. But wasn't actually in the best condition to drive cross the Ben Franklin. (shhhh!) But CLEARLY we all made it home safe so Im actually pretty proud of myself.

Finished out my nite wit the usual X-rated drunk texts to the boo. Lol {He knowz wats going down, and he don't mind either way} It has yet to happen, but I don't think neither of us will be ready the nite we catch each other with alcohol in our systems heavy!!!!! Lol.
Woke up pretty early this morning. (Like 8-9 ish, WTF?) All I felt was sleepy, not hungover. And just thirsty as hell.

So, I'm jus spending the rest of the afternoon wit 32 oz. gatorade and gettin my *ish ready to head back up to New Brunzwick tonite. SO not lookin forward to it......Im on duty tonite as well. Otherwise, knowing me I'd much rather stay til Monday morning.
Good f'in timez.

The Saint & The Sinner

3.19.2009 by Dizzy♥


The couple that (most) ppl love to hate, Kim K. & Reggie Bush will be in the April issue of GQ magazine. I personally think Kim is a fabulous girl (contrary to most of my friends's thoughts about her) and the pics are kinda cute. Haven't seen a couple photo shoot in a while. Peep the rest of the preview pics below, which I think exemplifies them very well. Lmao ~ take that how you want. Full story here, along with a "behind-the-scenes" video, if that floats your boat. Lol, set to an instrumental version of "Roc Boys", for whatever reason.

Muahz.

Nope, Just Kidding

by Dizzy♥

So, as I stated b4 I was scared out my mind at the thought that I might've actually been *gasp* pregnant. But, to much avail.........I got my monthly yesterday! I am so grateful for these cramps rite now.Lol (sorry if it's TMI for any of yall out there). So yeah, told the bestie when/if I got it ~ we were DEF celebrating, which we did. Me, her & Ja hit up Ruby Tues. (lol) and I got my strawberry lemonade, along with some others. Fun timez.

On another scary note, the boo def. almost got locked for conspiracy & pos. of weapons last nite. Here I was, mad of course cuz he just stopped texting me out the blue, meanwhile he's somewhere dealing with this *ish. Crazy. Thank GOD they let them go (it was his boy's + dudez father is a State boy).

My life...never a dull moment.

But We Gon' Switch This Thing Back....

3.17.2009 by Dizzy♥

So, I remember a lil while ago, I discovered that Mr. Raymond had indeed made a video for this song. Then, shortly after I realized how late I must have been (since Trading Places hit the radio a minute ago). HAHA ~ well I'm laughing at me and my lateness but whatev. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE DIGITAL PIANO in this! And the video crossed my mind just now (maybe I'm just in a slow-jam mood, from 'Purple Kisses' to 'It's Yours' to this..hmmm. Anyway, far all those who were late like me (lol) or who just love(d) the song/video, this for you.

Muahz!

Purple Kisses

by Dizzy♥

Morning, luv's!

Well, pretty much afternoon now. Lol

Spring Break's going pretty good so far....no complaints. Prob should have my nose in a book rite now...BUT I'm not.

Um, the reason for the pic to the right was inspired by last nite w/ Q-Tip. Nothing major ~ we was jus out riding around for a lil bit cuz we needed to see each other (it's been bout a week) and I just wanted to be wit my boo. :-) Ended up sneaking me into his basement for a little while (YES, I KNOW ON SOME LITTLE KID *ISH, but hey - it was fun HAHA) But lately, esp. since I been home, for some reason I keep wanting to kiss him...like KISS him. Like make him wanna....yeah from my kisses. And jus enjoy ever Lmao. Idk how to explain but yeah. So, last nite I made sure to get wat I wanted.....well, not exactly. Cuz we both actually ended up wanting to.....YEAH. But we couldn't clearly. Kinda bad timing. But, nevertheless - fun nite w/ tha luv.

So, not sure if this applies to any of yall but, Happy St. Patrick's Day? I was just gonna be a bum today but I think I'm gonna re-nig and try my hand at Irish Potatoes. And by Irish Potatoes I mean these:

Last time I tasted one of these, I think I was in 7th grade. They're a candy made from cream cheese, coconut, sugar & cinnamon I believe (off the top of my head). Pics to come! (Thanx from boredom).
SB: Not gonna lie....I'm expecting my monthly and I'm starting to get more & more nervous everyday. Lord knows I'm one of the most impatient ppl on this earth so this is like the WORST TEST EVER!!!!! *Sigh* Plz pray for me.

Back 2 Ur Regularly Scheduled Program

3.12.2009 by Dizzy♥

Aight, I know I've been slacking on the updates this week but I'm right in the middle of my exam time. =(

First Thingz First - NEW LAYOUT! Do ya like? Kinda remindz me of the Tiffany boxes I adore so much. As for the header - lol a little strong but I think its hot. :-)
Anywayz - as for the books:
First was Span. Lit - Eh...
Second was Afromusicology which was so ridic. easy
Third was SUPPOSED to be Phonology - today actually. (more on that below)
And fourth is a take-home for Syntax which'll be due after we come back.

So *ahem* for Phon., which I was scared to take all week, I went to talk with my prof on Wed. and that made me feel a tad bit better. Tried to study more that nite - but to not much avail - Drew and the (now EX-) husband came thru to visit. Ending up giving up shortly after they left. Woke up early this morning to try to cram some more into my head and just felt SOOOO not prepared. So if yall promise not to tell, lol, told a little white lie to get out of it and now I get to take it later on. Sorry if anybody despises ppl who do this.

But on a sidenote, this semester I have no room to just do okay - which is prob what I woulda got if I took that jawn today. I need to do good....in ALL my classes. So, sorry if it seems selfish but honestly, I look at this one as doing what I needed to do. And b4 you even fix ur lips to say it - YES, I did study beforehand. Lol I still woulda been out.

But um yeah...brighter note...my Spring Break is pretty much upon us as we speak! No real plans (besides studying & working my ass off on Phon. Syn. & my Afro paper). Steph and her cuzzo Jece invited me to A.C. for a little getaway. And they tryna get me in on these Fake's they tryna get....I guess to get in the clubs & stuff. Um, that idea ~ not so much.
I keep hearing mad stuff about this young man's album so I'll have to do a review of my own soon.

Me & Q-Tip are fine. =) We both been hectic wit exams so we jus chilled the other nite. Glad he's close for when we go home. Def should be hittin that up. U already

Oh yeah my necklace came today! Was tryna take a pic of my actual one but I can't find my camera for nothin and my celly was comin out dumb fuzzy so here's a reg one:

I just randomly found it while I was cruising one day and I thought it was dumb cute!!! So yah - but um - the key stayin on my neck for a while - we'll see how it pans out.
But yeah think this is all for the up-up (update that is, lmao). Shots tonite then Big-Gurl Doc tomorrow afternoon. Muahz!

Feelz Good 2 B Home

by Dizzy♥

Hola luv's!

Ahh, it feels good to have a stable internet connection on my laptop again. I went home this weekend to get my hair done and chill with my mommy. I must admit - it felt good. Besidez the fact that the weather was BEAUTIFUL, when I was home I felt so...stressfree; carefree; and like all my worryz associated wit school and the people there were just nonexistent. I wanted to stay home forever! Lol.
But snap-back to reality. Got 2 exams this week, starting tomorrow so it goes without saying my dream was simply that. Good news tho is my spring break starts this Friday.Yay!

Lemme see... recap? Um, well....Thurs nite/early Friday morn. went to see Q-Tip after I got off from work.....let's just say he fulfilled his promise. (scroll down to bout 3/4 of the post). LMAO So, not to delve too much into it but, I've never been this sore in my life! :-0. But he agreed we was def wildin when he hit me up the following evening (which I so wasn't expecting him to do, since he told me he likes to keep his own space when dealing wit girls. Hmm.. maybe I'm not just ur average girl? ;-) Well, of course I mean I knew that I'm jus saying...I'm jus saying). Lol

Friday morning/afternoon went to get my micros. I adored having my hair out and I loved the way it looked on me but right behind my left ear it broke off tremendously bad (yikes!) so I refuse to put anymore perm to it for A WHILE. The micros came out cute - except for the fact it took 6 hours!!!!! I know it can take longer and I myself have (the most was 9) but I'm usually out in 4 so that made this process all the more harder. But, like they say beauty is pain. Maybe next round will be better.

Um, Saturday I went to the Flower Show in Philly with my mom. It was held in the Convention Center and below are some pics I snapped on my phone (little ghetto I know). I really could care less about the show - I only went cause my mom wanted to and I wanted to spend time with her. I woulda been satisfied wit jus goin out to eat (which we did afterwards anyway...Ruby Tuesday..can we say...delish?). But some of the displays were gorgeous. However, I personally feel this event is highly overrated, overcrowded and overpriced. $26 for a general adult ticket,$17 for a student and $13 for a child (2-16) ~ so you best believe I passed for a child that day thanks to my mom.(HAHA! Guess the braces still come in handy for something). My mom just wanted to go to say she had been since she always heard about it and I just wanted to be with my mommy - so in the end we both got wat we wanted.






Bee-yu-tee-full!

SB: You KNOW I had to tell you what I had to eat - cuz I'm such a fat a** at heart. Lol So, I had 'Asian Dumplings' for my appetizer - aka "Pot Stickers" at some other places, a half rack of ribs/ Louisiana fried shrimp for my entree/ strawberries and ice cream for dessert and not to mention my strawberry lemonade which was bangin' and my Ruby T (homemade iced tea w/ pomegranata juice). Everything was bangin' and I will most def be goin back ASAP. Peep my strawberries & ice cream below.


Spent my evening last night creeping myself out watching horror movies on the SciFi channel. Lol. Then today took my car to the Car Wash (finally!) after it was looking a mess after all those snowstorms. Pissed as hell that one of my roommates took our parking deck pass with her and I had to park by a meter on the street. I swear if it rains b4 I have a chance to put it in a deck ~ SOMEBODY's gonna hear my mouth. Seriously, I JUST f'in washed it.


So yeah, I believe that's how I spent my weekend. How was yours? Anywayz, dance rehearsal and studying for Afromusicology exam tomorrow. Wish me luck!

Vent

3.02.2009 by Dizzy♥



The mask comez off for the next 60 seconds.

I'm sick of you.

I'm fuckin sick you. I'm sick of waiting around. I'm sick of your bullshit ass excuses. I'm sick of giving you a million second chances. And I'm sick of always being your victim.

So I won't be. The next time you wanna drink & smoke in the same nite you was sposed to come see me, I truly hope the hazel fumes close in around your throat. (Lol, aight a lil extreme)

You put up this thick ass wall and play me at a distance and for what? Shit's not even worth it. Excuse me, you not even worth it. Truth be told luv, dudez like you are a dime a dozen here. Look the fuck around. If I wanted to wait up all night, weak ass text back and forth, listen to empty promises only to fall asleep alone - don't you think I'd still be wit D.V. & Time Check's asses right now????? Trust me you ain't that special. You forget it took me 2 1/2 years to notice you right?

Fool.

And you truly have the audacity to catch feelings when I put you up with them when yall act EXACTLY ALIKE!!!!!! HUH??? HELLO? ARE YOU SERIOUS?! And yeah you tell me all the time how I don't deserve this and I don't deserve that. But in the end you only hurting yourself cuz you only showin that you know the gat shit you do is wrong while you CHOOSE to do it anyway.

Cuz that makes sense.

Well, whenever you ready to show me how on earth you're any different, MAYBE you can hit me up, and if I recognize the number maybe I'll even pick it up/text back - whatever you choose. Til then, I'm not even holdin my fuckin breath.
