LAST TIME YOU CRIED READING A BOOK?

Honestly, I don’t ever remember of crying while reading a book.

I don’t have a bedside table so 0. However, I’ve got 1 unread book on my desk and who knows how many unread books around the house.

A PICTURE OF YOUR BOOKSHELF

HAHA, HAHA YEAH RIGHT!! Sorry for the laughter but my bookshelf is not just in one place. My bookshelf is where I can find a place to put my books. So I apologize but I do not have a picture for you.

HOW MUCH DO BOOKS MEAN TO YOU?

My way of winding down and I think you should take care of books. Reading is a window into the future.

BIGGEST READING SECRET?

I actually have more than one reading secret. My secrets are:

  1. I let my books set a few days before reading them.
  2. I absolutely despise books that are just thrown together then the author tries to cover his/her tracks by adding additional chapters and/or words.
  3. I really don’t like Charles Stanley’s books.

WHY I LOVE ME TAG

2658149737babd63f8095af21bbe8792

You’ve heard the saying “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. How true this is because what may be ugly to one person may be pretty to another. So before you go calling someone ugly or different remember there’s someone out there that might consider you ugly and also remember we are all different in one way or another.

  4. I LOVE THE FACT I ACHIEVED 2 DEGREES.  I graduated from a community college with an Associate Degree in Elementary Education then transferred to a 4 year university where I achieved a Sociology Degree(BS Degree). I was told after Highschool by a counselor that I would never achieve either of these degrees.
  5. I LOVE THE FACT I’M SINGLE. I must admit that this was something I wasn’t crazy about when I was younger but as I got older and wiser and I got I actually love being single. I can do things when I want and can change my schedule if need be.
  6. I LOVE HOW I’M DIFFERENT/SPECIAL. I’m one of a kind and despite what others may think I love the fact I’m special/different from other people.
  7. I LOVE THE FACT I HAVE ROYALTY IN MY ANCESTRY. Yes, that’s right, I have royalty in my ancestry. Queen Elizabeth is in my ancestry(Not the current one). I didn’t even get an invitation to either royal wedding either. Guess it got lost in the mail. LOL 
  8. I LOVE MY BLUE EYES. I love my blue eyes because they go with every outfit and I don’t need to wear colored contacts.
  9. I LOVE MY KINDNESS. I’m one who likes to meet new people and go up to people and say hi and welcome them. I not only enjoy meeting new people but learning about others and where they come from.
  10. I LOVE LISTENING TO OTHERS. I like listening to others problems and giving them advice. Sometimes it’s easier because we’ve been through the same/similar situation.
  11.    I Love Me Because I’m  A Christian. This may seem like a crazy answer to some people but when I asked Jesus into my heart my life totally changed for the good. I’ve been blessed  many times over. Is my life easier? Not always but at least I know Jesus is there to help me.

           I could go on and on about What I Love About Me but won’t because my post                 would be too long.

BEAUTY TAG

DSCN0467Hello everyone and welcome. Simple Serenity has done a Tag called the Beauty Tag and nominated everyone who reads her post which can be found HERE. Please understand my answers will be from when I was younger mostly since I’m allergic to ALL makeup I’ve tried. I want to Once Again, I want to thank Simple Serenity for nominating everyone who read her post/blog.

1.) What do you love about makeup? 

When I wore makeup  I loved it because it covered up my blemishes. It also made me look good too.

2.) How long does it take for you to do your makeup?

When I wore makeup it took anywhere 5 to 10 minutes. Since I only where lipstick or chapstick now it doesn’t take that long.

3.) Do you remember your first makeup item?

NO

4.) Will you leave the house without makeup?

Yes. Since I’m allergic, I do it a lot.

5.) Favorite lipstick?

Anything on sale, right color and as long as it looks good. Favorite — No.

6.) Name a makeup crime that you hate?

There are many but one that comes to mind is when I was in college, a young woman was coming up the hill I was going down and I thought  I’d entered a Halloween party this young woman had that much makeup on and it was on thick and it looked to be in layers too. I could go on and on about this crime but won’t.

7.) What product do you buy mostly?

Lipsticks and glosses. I have a lot.

8.) One makeup product you can do without?

Eyeliners.

9.) Favorite makeup hack?

Always carry a cosmetic mirror/powder to touch up your makeup.

DSCN046810.) Matte lips or Lip gloss?

Glossy lips all the way but sometimes wear matte lipstick.

Tough question. I really like the Clinique brand.

Very Sensitive, Pale, Freckled and normal to oily.

15.) How many times do you wash your face daily?

This may sound crazy but due to my very sensitive skin, I don’t wash my face daily but only a few times a week.

16.) Any Acne story?

Yes. In my younger years, I used an Acne cream to try to get rid of my acne because I knew it worked. I used it this time to get rid of my acne and I broke out with more acne. It had the opposite reaction.

17.) Do you like trying out new skin care products or do you stick to a routine?

Stick to a routine.

18.) Do you think you look good even when you don’t have makeup on?

Absolutely. I love how I look and if other people don’t like how I look, that’s their problem.
