KPop Song of The Week...

Why can't American boys dress like this?

                         Nuest with their "girl why you gotta treat me so bad ballad" Hello.
There is no faster way for a man to get back on my good side, let alone in my heart, than by calling me and asking if I've eaten (if its implied his going to feed me). This song is so fricken sweet, I get teen girl butterflies every time I hear it. The video is very sad, watching these beautiful boys geting their lil hearts broken, but when I separated the video from the lyrics I clearly see why she didn't answer the phone. Yall are too damn clingy  I appreciate love and attention, but whoa whoa...slow down. You don't have to blow up my phone, or run faster to see me, if we agreed to meet we'll meet. Sheesh these Kpop boys, still love them. Any way, the song is beautiful its the only song from Nuest that I like. Wasn't the biggest fan of "FACE" (appreciated the message though) and the clothing in "Action" well there are just some things in life I cant get past (poor Ren). Here is the video:

Let me know your thoughts on the song and on this boy group in general. They are considered a rookie group and I believe they have a lot of potential. If you need to ask the blonde is a boy and his name is Ren....just google it.


Making Makeup Brushes New Again- My Method

Lets talk! Life sucks when its that time of the month you know. So the best thing to do is to grab a cool drink, pop on a movie, and clean dem brushes gurl!

Thats right brush cleaning, the funnest thing to do next to cleaning the litter box. I always dreaded washing my brushes though nothing can beat a fresh and clean makeup brush, the process of cleaning them (sometimes 50+ or more) was always an event. Luckily I've stumbled across a few products and a new method that has made the task fun and so effective. There are six things that I need when preparing to clean my brushes:

  1.  My handy dandy Sigma Spa Brush Cleaning Glove
  2. A good dish soap
  3. Olive oil
  4. Benjabelle Brush Tree
  5. A medium-large bowl
  6. Kpop music.....lots of it....just because.
    I'll have some cake later Yoseob, have to clean my brushes now boy...
Before I dive into my brush cleaning method; a lot of people have mixed feelings regarding the Sigma cleaning glove. Some love it, some think its ridiculous, but I think we can all agree upon the fact that it is over priced. I actually love the glove. I feel as though my brush gets an amazing cleaning and that the process is faster then using a wash cloth or any other product. The material dosent come off as flimsy  it seems steady and ready to be used multiple times. So would I recommend the glove? Hells yeah. Does the price suck?  You bet. But knowing I dont have to buy another glove and the fact that it makes my brushes super clean(i.e. no soap or oil residue), the 40 bucks is worth it...sorry haters! That wasn't nice...oh well. On to the process. Unfortunately I decided to take pictures after I already cleaned my brushes, so next time I will have a video of the actually step by step method.

First I put a good amount of soap and a small amount of olive oil (depends on the amount of brushes your washing) in my bowl. The soap is meant to remove product build up and remove the bacteria from your brushes, the olive oil is meant to condition the hairs of your brush so the softness doesn't get stripped from the soap. Next I run some luke warm water, get my Sigma glove wet, pick up a brush, dip it in my soap & olive oil mixture and follow five simple steps of cleaning with the Sigma glove which are wash, rinse, refine, rinse, and shape. This step is pretty fast. The soap and oil mixture remove all traces of makeup from my brushes and the glove removes all traces of soap and oil from the brushes. 

I stack the brushes on a flat surface as I clean them and once finished I place them in my brush tree. Simple. Easy. Done. I will make a video of this process very soon with before and after photos of my brushes, so stay tuned. This method of brush cleaning has been perfect for me thus far. How do you clean your brushes at home?

Let The Makeup and Kpop Flow Like Wine

Hey guise! 
Nothing says classy like bra straps!

Well I’ve been gone a long while and life has changed a lot since my last post. 


A man tried to break into my home while I was in my bedroom….yup. A good old fashioned home invasion. It was completely horrifying and I decided that I didn’t feel safe where I was and needed a change of scenery. Besides the trauma, I stayed for a month in my old apartment (to get things together) and moved. So now the kibi’s and me have a new home and are feeling comfortable and safe.  I am preparing to hit this blog full force and there will be a huge amount of steady content so I look forward to the future!
