HomeWalk 08

What is HomeWalk?

HomeWalk our 5K walk, is part of United Way of Greater Los Angeles’ year-round campaign to end homelessness. In 2008, over 4,000 people and 250 volunteers walked together to raise approximately $500,000. Participants in HomeWalk are also led on an educational journey, inspiring walkers to learn more about the crisis of homelessness and what they can do to solve it.

How will the funds be used?

All money raised from HomeWalk is distributed back into the community to help quickly rehouse homeless families and provide permanent housing with supportive services to the chronically homeless. Our rapid rehousing partners quickly move homeless families into permanent housing and provide short-term income support and additional support services (food vouchers, access to medical care and day care) to help ensure a successful transition. Our permanent supportive housing partners provide subsidized apartments with on-site services available, such as health care, mental health and substance abuse treatment programs.

Now more than ever we need to work together to fight poverty.

So we can end homelessness for good.

8 Things guys notice about you Instantly

"Wounder what he'sll notice first: my genuine smile or my smoky eyes?"

1.How thick your hair is
This is all about evolution. Since cave-man days, dudes have been drawn to lush locks, which signal that a woman is healthy (Shaggable).

2. If your smile is Genuine

- Sometimes your eyes crinkle a bit when you grin. Most men are good at distinguishing the vibe of this kind of smile, which say you’re relaxed and fun.

3. The size of your Group
- You don’t want a big bunch (it’ll be hard for him to approach) or just one friend (he’ll figure you wouldn’t desert her to talk to him). The perfect crew size? Three. Your two buds can keep each other company when you slip away.

4. The pitch of your voice
Studies show that men are drawn to voices in a slightly higher register (think Kristin Bell’s), probably because-yep, evolution-they’re reliable signs of youth and reproductive health.

5. Your Hip-to-Waist Ratio
Yet again, blame eons of human history. Men instinctually look for baby mamas. If your waist is noticeably smaller than your hips, it signifies fertility- a huge pint in your favor. A wide belt would emphasize that hourglass shape.

6. Your Glowiness
Guys associate a radiant complexion with good mental health. That’s because stress and anxiety usually cause breakout and dull skin. So those lotions and bronzers you sweep over your cheeks? Totally worth it.

7. What's fake about you
Not personality-fake, but artificial accoutrement-fake: lashes, hair, extensions, ect. To guys, these thing shout high-maintenance! Not good.

8. Your eyes

People focus on eyes more than they do on any other body part. And dramatic eye makeup will have him zeroing in on your peepers even more.

So another interesting story in Cosmopolitan, this one was written by Bethany Heitman. It really got my attention. I don't know if I totally agree with them. For example waist and hip proportion because they are looking for baby mamas... hmmmm? How thick is your hair??? Well as long as you don't have noticeable thin hair... I think you'll be okay.

TGIF...again baby!

The imagination exercises a powerful influence
over every act of
sense, thought, reason,
-- over every idea.

~Latin Proverb~

So I had a hectic crazy week. I had so much homework, and studying to do. But I want you guys to know that during all that time I was really hoping I was blogging. I have not had anytime to have fun, talk to friends or be creative.

So this weekend, lets all be creative and try something new,
New hairstyle or new makeup or new background on our laptop/desktop.
Let’s change something.

Change can be fun.

I’m going to my aunts wedding AGAIN. Yes, she is really getting married this time. Well, I really hope she is because driving to the Valley from LA is not cool. So I’m going to try to do something different. I don’t know how different I can be at a wedding. So we will see.


So I know I promised some swatches from MAC Black style collection but I have not had anytime at all. I did wear Cinderfella on Tuesday. We had an awesome rainy day. I was stuck at work and then in class, so I didn’t really get to enjoy it. But I love rainy days. It just makes the day feel so peaceful. Rainy days are perfect to stay at home watch a movie in PJ’s or stay in bed with a good book. Well I’m sure we will have more rainy days soon.

I really hope so.

So OMG MAC Cosmetics has the Holiday collection on pre-sell.

First of all... just the palettes are so adorable.

Secondly, The colors are great. These are only my favorites. I think there are a couple more.


Halloween is just around the corner... how fun. My kids love Halloween. The amazing part about it is that last year they wanted to be Spiderman, or hulk but this year there all about being scary. Andrew is looking forward on dressing up as a scary clown and Bryan wants to be some kind of ugly monster. Christopher is still in his I'm Spiderman stage. I'm excited on dressing them up and having lots of fun. Halloween is such an awesome time to be creative. There are so many awesome videos out there. You can also create your own. I found this picture which I would love to see in make up status.

So Simple but so cool!

To Tuesday...

"Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it."

- Michael Jordan

I feel horrible everyday that passes by and I don't blog. Well this weekend was crazy busy. First of all my boys got their costumes. Yes there creepy scary... and we love it. I'll have pictures soon. Secondly, I took my camera back to Best Buy... I must say I love them. I didn't get warranty on it (yes, I know, how dumb). However, since it's been less than a year the manufacture warranty covered it and its getting fixed. WOOOHOOOO! I’m soooo happy about that. I can’t wait to get it back and take many many pictures. Its gives more opportunity to get pictures on my blog.

So remember how I told you guys I love changes. Well, I love them but I realized that I’m scared of major changes. Like when it comes down to it. I start over thinking it and wondering what if… However, I reminded myself that change is good. SOOOOO… I cut my hair. I had it so long and now it’s so much shorter. But it will grow back and I can just have fun now. I have more opportunities to try new styles and enjoy while it’s short.

I have not had much time to play with make up and that totally sucks. So school is so much fun but getting harder. I guess, because it’s mid-semester. Well I love you guys. I will definitely have those Halloween pictures soon. My camera will be ready till November 4, 2009 so I will have to borrow my dad. But pictures will be taken =]

I look like a major nerd in this picture... but just showing you guys the eyebrows and shadow.

Random Friday....

So just wanted to share some random thoughts... (As always)

Last night I went to the movies to watch Paranormal Activity... I don't know if I was scare off my ass because I was watching at midnight, or cause I'm a believer, or cause it seem so real, But I was truly scared. I really did sleep with my light on. During the movie I literally yelled at the scary parts of the movie. So yeah I’m not advertising the movie or anything but if you like scary movies go check it out =]

A scary experience I had a while ago….

I was in the shower, shampooing my hair. Then I got one of those feeling that some one is staring at you. So I got freaked out I rinse my hair as fast I could. I even tried to do it with my eyes open because I felt the feeling more intense when I closed my eyes. As I was drying my hair in front of my bathroom mirror, I tried to convince myself I’m thinking crazy. But all of the sudden my radio turn on super loud, that it scare the hell out of me. I ran to my room and pulled the plug out. I didn’t even try to touch it. A day before all of that I had my friend in my thoughts. He had just passed away less than a month before that experience. The weirdest part about it, was every time we talked about death, he would always tell me that if he died… he would come back to scare me. That no matter what he was going to stay with me. So right after the radio thing happened, my first thought that came to my mind was… him… but then I said out loud “ I get it, your with me just please stop showing me”. I don’t know if there is another explanation like the radio had some kind of circuit trouble…but why at that very moment… after that strange feeling in the bathroom.

But I sure did get that radio out my room.


So I have been thinking of getting a new laptop. I have a dell that still works well but I want something smaller and lighter that I actually wouldn’t mind carrying around. So I saw this and thought it was OMG so cool. Now I want an apple laptop more than ever...


So I went to MAC and checked out the DSQUARED collection which was pretty cool but at first seem simple... I did like the lip eraser. However, I didn’t buy it because I had decided to get it with my next paycheck. I had already gotten plenty of stuff from the Black style collection. But then Kandee the make up artist blogged about it. I was like OH NO! Now everyone is going to go buy it. So I went to the MAC website and sure enough it was SOLD OUT! I was sooo disappointed but I did call the MAC store by my job and luckily they had 2 left so yup they are reserved and I'm picking it up during lunch.

I did buy some shadows from the black style collection which I will share some swatches.

So check that out later on.


Something to smile or laugh about...

Have a GREAT Weekend!

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.

~Marcel Proust~


Well, I been trying to do everything I need to do and make it a routine. I’m trying to wake up early and make it to work on time, go to school, do homework, read, study, and be a mom. I also have my son’s that go to school. I have to make sure there homework is done and correct. I need to make sure they understand why it is wrong or right.

I’m grateful for my friends that have stuck around even though I have not really been involved or been such a good friend. (Since School)

I’m grateful for my parents helping me taking care of my kids while I’m at school. Treating them like their own kids. Actually, even better than they treated us…lol but that’s okay.

I’m grateful for having such a great job that gives me the opportunity to go to school. Well, I do it after work hours but sometimes I have to leave earlier I get no complaints about that. I sometimes need 30 extra minutes for lunch to finish some reading or some homework as well.

I’m grateful for having such great co-workers that helped me out with studying or understanding a question I’m stuck on. I’m grateful for their encouragement o’ and breakfast that Helena brings in.

I’m also grateful for my brothers that help my son’s with their homework when I’m not around.


So last night I had a dream, one of those dreams that are so weird but seem so real. Well, I dreamed about the father of my kids. Our relationship had ended about 3 years ago. I wonder all the times why I still have dreams about him. Of course he was involved in my life for 5 years before we split. We had a great relationship in the start, but it escalated to a harsh and complicated relationship that we decided the best was to call it quits. After legal difficulties I lost communication with him and decide to keep it that way. I’m no longer interested in involving myself with him again. I have accomplished so many goals since he has been out of my life. I have become a better person. However, I still have him in my dreams, some random thoughts with out the need for them WHY? WHY? WHY?

Sometimes I wonder if destiny is saying you should have worked it out. But maybe it’s saying this is the way it supposed to be. I’m accomplishing so much, I’m driving now, I’m going to school, and I’m more involved with my family and friends than before. But what if god gave me my soul mate and we were supposed to work it out and we didn’t even truly try?

Happy Monday...

Let’s start this week right... let’s all plan to do something new. I'm feeling good and hopeful for this week. It was a kind of weird weekend. Maybe because of the full moon or cause I finally went out again. I should have not gone but I'm good now and catching up on my studying. But I’m happier than ever than I’m blogging. Tomorrow I’ll be in Pasadena in some Job fair. It’s going to be hectic but hopefully fun.

Anyone who has never made a mistake
has never tried anything new.
