Rochelle Ritchie

Hello my beautiful ladies,

I was browsing my celeb blogs and came across a story featuring a beautiful women by the name of Rochelle Ricthie. Ms. Ritchie is a News Anchor in West Palm Beach, FL for channel 5. She has recently taken the transition. She has done the big chop to become completely natural. That just makes me so happy to see her do this. In the article she states how someone told her the only way she would make it was to have weaves. Like many women, she fell victim to it. Weave is not for everyone. And it is sad that long and straight means perfect. It is not perfect. Me becoming natural is the best decision I have ever made in my life. I am this close to becoming Vegan, but one step at a time right. I have also decided to do my BIG CHOP in 2011...like around April, which is soo exciting. I am going to go to a professional tho...yikes can not have a mishap happen. :).
Anyhoo, for those of you who read me and do still get perms, it is okay. Going natural is not for everybody and you should do whatever makes you all happy.
Thank you for reading

Hello Lovlies,
I was doing my usual online browsing --no more shopping for me for a while-- when I came across some very nice sportswear jackets for work. On Zara.com, they featured a few pieces that are very versatile that can go from day to night. I love the velvet one the best. As a youngster, I was the queen of velvet and corduroy lol. Leopard is always in, at least to me anyway. And the checkers are just something that intrigues me for some reason.

BTW: I am on an official shopping break. Not only do no longer have a job, long story, but I am saving up my money from now on. :) Wish me luck with the new career search and money saving venture I am about to partake.
Forever blessed

hair update-moldy mixture

Hola my lovelies,

The last few days have been so crazy and I haven't really had a chance to thank all of you for watching my videos or reading my blogs. Thanks you!!!!! Mwah.
Also I have joined beautylish.com, which is basically a one stop shop to communicate with other bloggers about beauty products. I love love love that site. So look for me at http://www.beautylish.com/pynkstarr

Now on to the reasons I am writing to post. I haven't really used my spray mixtures as much as I used to so maybe that it why it became kinda moldy....like ewww. I went use the spray moisturizing mixture and it turned into some nasty mold thingies floating. My dad has told me to throw it out, but I'm sad that I have to waste all that product. So my question is what did I really do wrong. I thought rosemary oil and vitamin E were both preservers. I guess not. The fact that its pretty gross to look at, I will not show you what it looks like. But I won't give up. At the moment I'm on a saving budget, therefore I can't buy anything new, but I am definitely going to make another mixture. This time Im gonna use more oils than water. And maybe some leave-in conditioner. Whatever it is I'll do, will def be posted.

Thank you,
Forever Blessed

Goood Morning-Courses

Hello lovely people

I am on my way out this morning but really needed to express this feeling I am having. Recently I have been going through a lot of different emotions regarding my life-things like my job, money, and the usual stresses of life. I used to always have faith that if you prayed for something it should happen like right then and there. For instance, when I wrote it down, made it happen with my new job. I kept feeling like why would God put me in a position knowing I can't handle it, knowing I asked for happiness. Through all these things I had lost my faith, as discussed in a previous post, instead of gaining a stronger one. I basically reverted back to the person I used to be, not the person I want to be.
Now is the time to become the person who you know you can be. Besides the fact that I am here on earth for something, I shouldn't have gave up so easily. I didn't realize till now that I am on a course, I almost quit that course. Because it was too "hard" I wanted it to end and be over. I was sick because of it everyday. Thinking over and over bad things. Nothing was right. I couldn't get it right. But, I am on a course. Just like many of you are on courses. I am being prepared right now for something greater that I want in life, which is to be a Fashion Merchandiser. At the moment I am just not ready to do that yet. I realized this now.
I let my want for tangible things stop me from moving on and along.

And since this week is thanksgiving and I want to share with you all a verse from 1 Timothy 4:1-6
"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer. If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister in Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and good doctrine, whereunto thou hast."

Hopefully this scripture can help someone through something they are going through. As long as you follow the courses, it will prepare you for what you are destined to be.

Thank you for reading,
XO, Pynkstarr :)

Losing my Faith

Hi ya'll

Yes I am back with yet another post about faith. I feel as though, YT and my blog are the only two places outside from friends and family that I can actually vent and express how i feel.
Lately, I have had this string feeling that something just is not right. You know that feeling you get in your tummy when it tells you to take another route home or not to eat in a restaurant, well it's that kind of feeling but stronger for me. When I wake up daily, I always ask God what is it that I am meant to do with my life. I have always had the fear to end up with out having a plan for my life and being without anything. Anything meaning materialistic stuff. But also food, shelter, water, etc. As I get older I have began to have more and more faith that God will see me through anything. He knows the plan that I am going to take, He knows what I will do in my life. He knows.
The thing is I don't know.
A few months ago I had to leave a job because of medical and other reasons as well. I hated going there so much that I took a pay cut and reduced my hours to weekends only so I wouldn't have to go. It was making me so sick to go there, I had migraines daily and upset stomach. After I resigned, I kept doing a few days at this showroom in NYC, which I love so much. But they were unable to keep me, and since I was graduating I needed to find that FT job I was praying for. I had faith that even though I had to quit my job, God would see me through.
That's when I found the place I am at now. This place was my dream Pay and other luxuries. But it is not my dream job. I assumed, maybe I have to pay dues before I can make it big in my life. And I figured if I was meant to be here, I was meant to stay no mater what. Then things started turning into what I had gone through before in previous jobs. Anxiety attacks from the stress and being too overwhelmed, nausea, now it's dizziness.
People say why don't you leave, you don't deserve to let a job kill your body at such a young age. Then of course you have the "if it were me" friend telling you to quit. My body is even telling me to leave. So why haven't I just left.
I think it's because I had lost my faith. I say I have faith all the time, but at that moment when I got this job it went out the window. Because the first thing the popped in my mind was "you better take it, even though something was telling me not to, because this is it". If I had kept the faith, I would have known that it would've been okay to say no. It would've been okay because He would've just sent me something else.
For me to have lost faith is just absurd. All the things I have gone through and came out of, for me to lose faith and give up is just crazy.
Just please if you don't do anything else, never lose your faith. Hold on to it forever. He will always steer you in the correct path. If something tells you that it isn't right, then its not. Really listen to that feeling because it is Always right.

Forever blessed, never stressed

jesse's girl Pigment Dusts

Lipsticks wet n wild

Wet and Wild Lipsticks/Lipgloss

Hola gurlies,
I have made some more purchases from the Wet and Wild collections. This time it's their Silk Finish collection of lipsticks. And I must say......bravo. These are the best ever I love them wayyyy better than the Longwear collection(see previous post). These last me for hours and do not leave my lips feeling dry or cracked. I apply them with my bare lips, no primer. And I also pair them up with the Wet n Wild Megaslicks Lipgloss.
The price is affordable and like all other drugstore beauty products, catch them when they are on sale.

Review-Rimmel mascara

Rimmel's The Max volume Flash
waterproof mascara in black

Hey ladies, I am back with another review for ya'll. This is The Max by Rimmel. It's supposed to make your eyelashes super maximized. I must say that it actually does that, and besides the wand being too small it's just as good as Benefit's Bad Gal Lash mascara. Almost though.
The price for me was only $2.40 because it was on sale at Walgreens. I give it a thumbs ups for its name, The Max Vol Flash. Some people who has reviewed this has said it doesn't live up to it's name but I beg to differ. This mascara is my new thing to stock up on....next to Black Opal's Concealer stick. If you want, wait until a drugstore has their many sales before going too crazy over this. Please catch it on sale just in case you hate it.
Oh yea, one more thing, it is definitely WaterProof . It does come off when you rub your eyes either, like some mascaras I have tried in the past....*cough maybelline great lash cough*

Well enjoy the rest of your weekend Ladies, be safe.

Eva's Dress for the 2010 ema

Who's Dress is this, and why would they let Eva's stylist (Robert Verdi who I love) ruin it. It's not very proportionate, which is a dead give because of the hem.
This is like Katie Holmes all over again.....where is Andre Leon Talley or Tim Gunn when you need them.

Review-Revlon Illuminance Cream Shadow

Revlon Illuminance cream shadow in Black Magic

After seeing this in mags for the last year or so, I have finally been able to purchase it because it was on sale at Walgreens for 50%. While I was sorta excited to try out cream shadows for the first time, I also knew there would be an issue. Maybe it's because I primed my eye or maybe because I applied this with a brush, I don't know. But applying this as a base on one eye didn't work nor did applying it with other shadows. It creased so badly, left my eyes looking cray cray. I do like the black shadow, more than the others, as a base color.
Maybe I did something wrong or applied it wrong. I will give it ago again tomorrow and see how it turns out, but for now they get a D-. Only because the colors are very cute :).

Forever blessed, never stressed!

Review-Wet and Wild Mega Last Lip color

Review of Wet and Wild Mega Last Lip Color!!!

(L to R) Ravin Rasin, Just Peachy,Think Pink,Vamp it up, and Bare it All

Hola Chicitas,

I bought these lip sticks about a month ago, and have been using them since then. I was gonna post like a haul and tell you to go out and catch the sale, but I got so sidetracked due to my job. Not having enough time to take the pictures and post them, or even write a full fledged review. Now you may ask what makes me an expert on makeup to review it? Well I have been wearing cosmetic products since I was 4 or 5. I know it's young to many but it was just lip gloss or colored glosses. Plus my aunt would sneak it on me because she was a makeup artist. So, I may not be an expert but I know a lottt.
Lets get to it shall we.

I purchased two colors because of the sale at Walgreens (20% off). Then I fell so in love with them, I went back and bought 4 more colors. (at the time of pictures one color was missing ={).

Price: $2-3 (wait for the sales to get them cheaper)
Packaging: Horrible. Its gets an F because if you twist the tube too much it the whole thing comes out. Also, the black stuff on the base from the tube on two of the tubes came off in my hands. Gross.
Quality: In order to not have that cracking on your lips you'd have to wear a primer, or you can just reapply all day. The quality isn't gliding. But after a few coats, is goes on smooth.
Grade: C+, only because I love the colors and it does last a long time.....which can be good for some and not others.

Try for yourself and let me know.

Stay blessed and never stressed =)
