Whats so great about christmas

what is it about christmas that makes people want to set a side their differences? is it a sense of obligation? guilt? christmas spirit? what is it..I for one dont feel any different at Christmas compared to any other time of year. If anything I tend to feel a little down. dwindling bank account, hectic atmosphere, ungrateful people, dwindling bank account..did I already mention that? This year seems to be especially depressing for me...maybe depressing is the wrong word... more like aggitated. :(

Nnew look based on victoria B, Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Lopez

Sandra's look is probably my favorite but I like the black along the lower waterline like in Victoria B's look. Jennifer's bronze look is amazing and , in my opinion, looks the best out of these 3 picture's. Thank's for taking the time to look. Let me know how you think my look compare's.

Pam Anderson, Victoria Beckham and Kim Kardashian

 Here are just a few of the pic's I looked at for my newest video.

Kat Von D look and plastic surgery???????

Whew!! So I did a Kat Von D look on my youtube channel and I think it came out good. I was a little nervous attempting it because she has a full face of make up ALL the time. It was def a challenge for me but fun. My first try at it was hilarious but the 2nd try came out great. Here's 2 of the pics I got my idea from. She looked like herself in these pictures.

 . She has def changed over the years and I'm pretty sure she has had some work done to her face which, in my opinion, is a damn shame. She doesn't look right. I saw a pic of her and her face resembles that women who looks like a cat. Theres this women, who is a bazillionare, that has spent tons of money on plastic surgery...she looks very scary. Que the scary music.. OK so shes not as bad as the scary chick on the right but if she keeps it up this could very well be her in just a few short years...AAAHHHHHH!!!!!

My youtube Channel

So I'm starting to get more subscribers..finally lol. I'm really learning a lot from watching my favorite guru's. I was able to get some good make up brushes today (Mac..thank you honey) and I am truly amazed at the difference. I always thought a brush was a brush but I was wrong. It's hard to explain the difference..I think it's just something that you have to see for yourself. Anyways the urban decay palette finally came out and after all this time that I waited  I had a chance to see the palette in person and realized that maybe I shouldn't buy it. Don't get me wrong the colors are really nice but I doubt that I would use all of them. There are tons of shadow colors at Mac and when I see a color that I think is pretty and would look good on me it only happens about half the time. On youtube I see people using colors that look awesome and I think hmm maybe that would look good on me, so I go and try it out and it ends up looking horrid against my skin tone. I'm glad that I am able to test colors out before I buy them because otherwise I would be returning shadows all the time. I guess my point is that I think I may be done buying eyeshadow palettes because most of the time, in my case anyways, some of the colors go untouched and in my opinion that's definitely a waste of money.

Forever 21, MAC, Urban Decay

   Tis the season!! Tis the season for fabulous make up collections, sales and special prices...aahhh!! I love holiday specials. Mac has a new collection that is reasonably priced. They are offering eye palettes, pigments, brushes, lipgloss and nail varnish's . If I had the cash I would buy everything lol. I'm really loving the pigments and am giving some serious thought to picking up the cool toned collection, even though I'm a bit intimidated at the thought of using pigments. A heavy hand equals an overdone messy look and I for one am not interested in looking like a clown. This will def take some serious practice.

  Ok so I am tired of waiting for urban decay to re release their Naked palette....Whats the hold up?!?!! I'm dyin over here lol. I'm getting to the point where i'm getting over my "want" for this awesome eye palette. Has anyone had a chance to check out ebay? these palettes are going for mucho dinero..all these people spending serious cash when all they have to do is wait and pay $44....duh. Course I do feel bad for the people who did pay lots of $ and didn't know it was being re released. Owell such is life.

  YAY!!! for Forever 21 and the awesome jewelry they sell. Gorgeous rings and earrings at cheap prices. Beautiful colors, chunky funky rings, earrings with a vintage look, rings shaped like animals..uh I love it lol. Finding the perfect piece of jewelry can really add that extra something to any outfit. Just try not looking fab with an awesome piece of jewelry. Check out Forever 21 for great jewelry at even greater prices. Happy shopping and an early Merry Christmas!!

Red, Predators..awesome movies

Hi everyone and welcome to Philicia's movie review..lol. So I saw Red and thought it was awesome. I liked it more than the expendables and I really liked that movie. I love that Red had unlikely action/hero stars. Bruce Willis is still hot for an old fart and still makes awesome action type movies. As for the rest of the cast I think their performance's were brilliant. Helen Mirran was classy yet bad ass lol and John Malkovich played his role of the crazy paranoid type to a "T"..he was really funny running down the street with explosives strapped to his belly lol. I couldn't stop laughing. Morgan Freeman who is cool as a cucumber played his part well..he is the epitome of cool. I really enjoyed watching this movie and cant wait for the DVD release.

I have been a fan of the Predator series since it came out. So when I found out another movie was being released of course I was there opening night to see it. It was definitely a kick ass. I was really curious to see how well Adrian Brody would play his character and after seeing the movie I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. I think he did an awesome job playing a bad ass. I really liked the movie. I'm amazed at how many movies have come out using the predator monster and am just as surprised at how successful each one has been. In my opinion the writers have done a phenomenal job keeping the predator monster (character) alive and interesting. Awesome movie!!!!


Sandra Bullock look

So my lighting is now done and Mike did an awesome job.. my room is lit up like a stadium lol.  I did a Sandra Bullock look.. well I did my interpretation of Sandra's look. I dont know if you would agree but quite often I hear from people that I resemble Sandra Bullock, so it seemed to make sense that I try to do one of her looks. I'm not a makeup artist but I have found a new love in tinkering with it. I still dont like doing a full face of make up but for these celebrity look's that i'm trying to do I guess I should considering i'm copying a look. So anyhoo here is the picture of Sandra Bullock. I tried to do both looks. I dont get enough views yet to get any kind of feed back but my sister let's me know how they look and I trust her word..thank's San ;-)

 Check out my youtube video on this look....http://www.youtube.com/user/PJsBeautyShop

Paranormal Activity 2

I went to go see Paranormal Activity 2 and it did not disappoint!!! I thought the story line was brilliant. The only thing that I wasn't thrilled about was that kids were involved but other than that I really liked the movie. I was also given a code to down load paranormal activity to my ipod for free because I bought my tickets off fandango..bonus!! lol. I'm going to go see it again next week with my sister in law. I cant wait!!

I'm also looking forward to the premier of Walking Dead Halloween night. I have read the comic books and was really excited when I found out it was being made into a TV show. If you have the chance to read some of the comics before Sunday night do it..you wont be disappointed.

I need more eyeshadow like I need a hole in my head

So I keep striking out with the eyeshadow. I like to be frugal but like the old saying goes " You get what you pay for" simply put being cheap yields cheap results. I think for now I am done buying the cheap stuff. I love the colors of the new elf palette I bought but I think that I may be allergic to the shadow. Itchy watery eyes does not feel good when your trying to drive, not to mention that some of the colors don't want to come up on my brush. I really have to press in the shadow hard with the brush just to get some color on the brush. I found a new palette from Laura Mercier that is right up my alley not to mention the palette from smashbox that Ive been drooling over for 2 weeks now. There is also an awesome eye palette from the Pixi line that is sold at Target but that would be my " last resort buy" if for some reason I wasn't able to get the other 2.

So anyway I cant wait for my lighting to be done so that I can get back to my tutorials and reviews. Jennifer Lopez, Milla Jovovich and Victoria Beckham just to name a few. I cant wait, its gonna be fun!! ;-)

Ghost shows, remodeling and make up..great combonation lol

I love, love, love ghost shows. Ghost adventures is awesome. There was a marathon this weekend and I think it was on the TV almost all day both Saturday and Sunday lol. I was at Ulta today and there was this beautiful eye palette that I came very close to buying. I may go back and get it. The colors were so deep and rich, just what I like. I'm still waiting for Urban Decay to re release their Naked Palette...tick tock, tick tock. Ugh..what are they waiting for?? anyway the palette that i want is from Smashbox and there was only one left. 12 colors, eye primer and mascara for $43. I think that price is reasonable considering single colors are quite pricey. I think I have just convinced myself that I should buy it lol.

Mike started working on my lighting today so my videos look good and what was supposed to be maybe an hour long project turned into a 3 day ordeal...I feel bad that this went from easy to difficult. So here's to hoping that all the time, effort and not to mention money is worth it. I love my husband :)
 http://www.youtube.com/user/PJsBeautyShop  I'm going to post a short video of the work in progress on my youtube channel.

My Penelope Cruz look

Oh yeah..lol. My look was much darker. This isn't the look I remember lol. This would have been much...much easier to do. I think I'll do this one too but in the mean time I'm going to hunt down the picture of  Penelope I saw with darker make up. AAAHHH...lol. Owell, I will get it right next time....till then have a good one!!!

I NEED A NEW JOB AAHHHHHH!!!!!!  I'm sick of taking crap from people. I'm sick of keeping my mouth shut for the greater good (Hot Fuzz anyone)....SICK, SICK, SICK. I wish more people read this blog. If anyone out there is looking for a registered ultrasound tech with ten years experience leave me a message please. I have exceptional organizational skills, an eye for detail and outstanding customer service skills. Lol..this is funny I'm actually listing my skills like it matters..that's it.. I've actually lost my mind. My mind is lost. Someone please come and pick me up..put that bright white coat on me that ties in the back and cart me away to my new home..you know that place with the white padded walls and group discussions.. that place where heavy medication and drool bibs are an everyday necessity.  
Owell..such is life right. Suck it up and move on. Just let it go and forget about it..isn't that what people normally say? Yeah I guess that's what I should do. I should just continue to bend over with a smile and ask for more. Am I agitated? yes..will it go away? eventually..Am I going to let it rule my life? nope. But it does suck and it did ruin my complaint free job record but what the hell right.. cuz I guess in the end it wont really matter anyway. As a matter of fact I'm pretty sure that after today it wont matter much to me.. that is until I have to go back to that place and then the bad memories of my really crappy day are going to come crashing down on me like a dam that just broke loose. A bit dramatic, I know, but in these hard times a bit of drama is to be expected..tell me I'm wrong. So for now I bid you farewell...that is until the next tragedy ensues...or I buy more make up, which ever comes first. Till next time.

Just a few of my nail art designs and inspiration

Here are some of my nail
art designs. I have come up
with some of the designs on my own and some of them
were inspired by a very
creative youtube nail guru
known as love4nails. The red nails to the right was my first attempt at nail art. it took me almost 2 hours to do my nails that day lol. I made the flower and dots by using a tooth pick. Not too bad for my first try.  

This design here is my green zebra print. It kinda reminds me of green antiqued paint cracking on its surface.

                                                           This blue design was inspired by love4nails. It looks amazing on the tip of long nails. ho hum maybe one day I'll be able to do this design on my own long nails.
 The multicolored nail design I did was fun. Again inspired by love4nails. the orange nails to the left were so pretty in real life. I really love the color.

These 2 designs were fun to do although i think some people I came across were a Little confused by my purple nails. I got mixed reviews on my choice of design. Personally I liked it..it wasn't something you
 normally see. I really loved this blue design. The color was really pretty. I went from light to dark using the same color.

 I used decals for this nail design. I used 2 different paint colors that complimented the decals and used my dotting tool to apply the white dots. I got a lot of compliments that week.  The blue and silver nails looked so much better in real life. I used silver beads to decorate the silver french manicure on my thumb and pinky finger and silver rhinestones to decorate all the other fingers. The gold design below is another favorite of mine. My nails really sparkled in the light. Very pretty.
And finally this blue design started off fairly simple but after a few days I decided they needed a little pep and went in and added the white dots and some rhinestones. If you like my designs check out my Youtube channel by clicking on the link below. I am working on putting together some tutorials..and don't forget to subscribe to my blog and my youtube channel! Thanks for reading!!!

My sister

This is to my sister who I miss very much. Thank you for offering your help with my youtube site. I could definitely benefit from the help of a professional in the graphic arts field.

My sister has always been an exceptional artist. She is going to school for graphic arts and I am more than confidant that she will excel in that field. I feel very fortunate to have her helping me design an awesome layout for my youtube channel.

Then I will have millions of subscribers :-)

                                           THANKS SAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bad Day :(

Today was not the best day for me. I had a busy day at work and now I think I'm getting sick. My throat is itchy and sore...ugh. And on top of it all I'm starting to feel discouraged. right now this blog is basically a diary for me and I know that I just started it but there are so many people doing this and the YouTube videos that it almost seems stupid to even continue. I have had only a handful of people look at my videos and not one of them subscribed. I need a new strategy..I need better lighting and a better camera  and a new strategy lol. AAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!  Ok I feel better..sorta. I'm goin to bed. big hugs..night.

My MAC purchases

Here are the 3 items I bought today. the off white shadow is Sweetjoy and the other is called Vainglorious. The shadow that looks purple is actually a nice crimson color. I love these 2 colors. The make-up artist used a brown color called cork with these 2 shadows. It was an awesome combanation. I didn't buy Cork though because I have plenty of brown colors. Aren't these so cute...I think theyre adorable. Oh yeah..the eyebrow pencil I bought is in the picture as well. It is called Lingering. Till next time..Bye!!
