More Than Beauty.

I was watching CosmeticsCharlotte72 on YouTube and she did a 'More Than Beauty' Tag. It was a nice refresher from all the beauty related tags going around. *Also, CosmeticsCharlotte72 has some great videos, go check her out by clicking, HERE. 
Let's get started on this tag. By the way, I tag everyone! I would love to see your answers so leave them in the comments or post a link in the comments to your blog.

More Than Beauty
Fondest Childhood Memory: I have so many amazing memories from my childhood, but I do have a slight memory of when I was three. My family and I took a vacation to San Diego, CA and we were having a little fire pit on the beach and I just remember not having a care in the world, running wild, and just living in the moment. It was great.

Quirky Habit: Call this OCD instead of a 'quirky habit' but I always have to throw my shirt across the room if I accidentally put it on backwards.

Play Sports: Yes, I played softball, soccer, flag football, basketball, track & field, and competitive dance.

Favorite Book: Ooh, I have so many favorite books, but I really enjoyed reading all of Tori Spelling's books.

If You Could Invent Something, What Would It Be: If I could invent something I would invent it. I don't have any ideas.

If You Could Own Your Own Business, What Would You Own: A fashion boutique.

Someone You Admire That Doesn't Know Who You Are: I really admire Taylor Swift for following her dream and being so humble.

A Talent You Wish You Had: I wish I could sing or have the talent to speak many different languages.

Something You'd Wish You'd Known Two Years Ago: I wish I had know that its okay to be single and independent.

What You Do To Feel Centered/Relaxed: I sleep.

Who Is Someone In Your Life That Makes You Feel Loved: My mother and father.

The Most Interesting Place You've Been: Uhh, Catalina Island.

Three Books You Can't Wait To Read: Pretty Little Liars book series.

A Cherished Keepsake You'll Keep Forever: Ring from my current boyfriend, grandmother's jewelry.

Something You Really Want To Do Or See Before You Die: Umm, I'd love to just spend a day with everyone I love on the beach, relaxing.

*Warning: Random Blog Post.. Has Really No Point Or Specific Message*

- I'm writing this blog as I'm watching the Project Runway Season 8 Finale on my TiVo. I've been pretty addicted to this show. If your also a fan you'll know that Gretchen, Mondo, and Andy are the finale three. I think that Mondo is going to win, but I'm hoping for Andy. I would be happier if either Mondo or Andy win. Watching this show this season has really got me wanting to get back into sewing. Since I've been out of school, I don't really sew much and I've really missed it. Right now though the boyfriend and I are working on setting our place up. Slowly, ha. We don't have much furniture. Ya know though, that's okay. I like the rawness of our place. It's our first home together, err this is our second apartment together but nothings really changed from the first except were in a large place now. I love the nights when the boyfriend and I eat our dinners on the living room floor because we don't have a dining room table. And the lazy days where we watch television and be goofy. These are the moments that I will forever cherish and do not take for granted.

- I was at Walmart today and I saw a girl that was wearing a dress that I have also have. She looked so cute and just simple, but very put together. Her look was a: yellow stretch, 3/4 length sleeve, tight dress with black leggings and knee high brown boots, complimented with a beige satchel (which I own as well). So I tried to recreate this look... total FAIL. I don't know why it just didn't look cute on me, haha.

- Oooh, Project Runway is getting good!

- What are my plans for tomorrow? Gym time at about 7. Cook steak and egg omelet for the boyfriend in the morning, than sleep till whenever. Cook dinner for the boyfriend while he's working out. Than crave pumpkin with the boyfriend. Than sleep till the boyfriend has to go to work. Busy, busy.

- Going to take a break from blogging so I can work on a homework assignment and watch the three Project Runway designers collections go down the runway. Be back soon....

- Ok, I'm back. I just finished watching each designers collection so here's what I thought.
Gretchen: It was nice, and just okay for me. It wasn't my style, but I think a lot of girls would wearing her collection. She could win though after seeing the others collection.
Andy: As much as I want Andy to win, I just don't think his collection had it. I wasn't really fond of any piece in particular. I guess I was just a little bored. I'm still hoping he'll win though.
Mondo: Not my style, but loved it! Mondo really has that star quality. Again though, I'm not sure I would really wear any of his pieces.
We'll see who wins soon.

- By the way, you can hate on me for saying this but its just my opinion... I think Jessica Simpson looked so much better when she was thinner. Not to mention she was probably healthier too.

- And the winner of Project Runway Season 8 is.... Gretchen. Hmm, this has happened to me with all the contest based shows I've been watching this year (The Next Food Network Star, ANTM, etc.) The person I want to win, never does. Haha. Maybe I'm jinxing them.

Sorry this blog post was soooo random. I'm going to do a 'Now You Know Me' post next.

Product Review: Tresemme Flawless Curl System

Product: Tresemme Flawless Curl Shampoo, Tresemme Flawless Curl Conditioner, Tresemme Flawless Curl Mousse

I have been using the tresemme flawless curl shampoo and conditioner for about month now and I talk about it in my 'I'm Obsessed With' post this last Friday. However, just today I realized that, well, I don't really like it. My hair is dry and brittle. When I use the shampoo, I have to use quite a bit for my hair to feel washed. The conditioner did not moisturize my hair at all. The price for both the shampoo and conditioner came to about $9 at walmart.

I have used the tresemme flawless curl mousse on and off for the last couple of years now. I like it, but I'm still trying to find a good mousse. It works and holds my curls pretty well without making them crunchy or hard, but by the end of the day my curls are usually falling. I can't remember the price of this product, but I don't think it was too much.

PROS (Shampoo/Conditioner):
Good price

CONS (Shampoo/Conditioner):
Leaves hair dry and brittle
Doesn't moisturize

PROS (Mousse):
Holds Curl
Doesn't make it crunchy/hard

RATINGS:
Tresemme Flawless Curl Shampoo: 2/10
Tresemme Flawless Curl Conditioner: 1/10
Tresemme Flawless Curl Mousse: 8/10

Now You Know Me

The Questions And The Answers.

1. What Year Did You Graduate High School?
I graduated high school two years early, so 2006.

2. What Part Of Your Body Do You Neglect The Most?
Hmm, probably my brain. I don't challenge it enough.

3. Beach House Or Lake House?
This is tough because I love the beach, but there's something so relaxing and calming about being by a  lake. I would probably say a lake house.

4. Mac Or PC?
I have both a Mac and a PC. I use my Mac for music, photos, videos, etc. I use my PC for school or important stuff. I really like both and I really hate both, haha. I think that a PC would be a better choice only by a little bit just because its more commonly used and more compatible with things.

5. Did You Wear Braces?
Fortunely, I never had to have braces.

6. If You Could Be One Person For A Day.. Living Or Deceased .. Who Would You Be?
Um, I would kind of want to see what it would be like to be a guy, probably a celebrity like Ryan Reynolds or Brad Pitt.

7. How Many Times Have You Moved In Your Life?
Out of state just once. In my home state, just once too.

8. Would You Rather Cook Or Clean?
I would much rather cook. I love cooking, I'm a newbie to the kitchen but I have been loving making meals and seeing my boyfriend eat it and actually like it!

Have a beautiful day!
