Some things I learnt this week

Hello again!
new addition (excited =D)
This time its about the things I learn week after week, I figured this will be a good way to catch up on my blog posts.
I'm glad to say I adopted this from a fellow blogger Berry Haute (love your blog girl) 
so lets get to it!

  1. I randomly like to take pictures in my car when I'm driving, it freaks my siblings and friends when I do but I think its fun lol.
  2. Pick your friends wisely because people do judge you by the people (friends) you associate with.
  3. The only way you can be happy is by filling your mind with happy thoughts and positive let go of sad bunkers
  4. A little bit of communication, goes a long way!
  5. Learn to take responsibility for your actions, never blame anyone for your own mistakes.
  6. Friendship without quarrels/ arguing never lasts.
  7. Appreciate the quality time you get to spend with family/ friends.
  8. Bad habits are like a comfortable bed; they are easy to get into, but hard to get out of.
  9. You have to do what others won't. To achieve what others don't. so don't be afraid to be "weird"
  10. Be careful of the words you say, keep them soft and sweet; you never know from day to day which ones you'll have to eat. (people do use what you tell them for their advantage)

Hey blog bugs!
 I just realized one thing, Its so easy to keep up with peoples blogs but I cant keep up with mine lol I think its still a learning process though.
Any tips?
Hope you enjoyed your week?
Those of you in the states definitely did! (I think) cause I sure did and I ate alot and shopped alot a little too.(can't wait to show the things I got, when they come)
I have tons of pics to post but gradually I'd get used to it, I went out only once with couple of peeps to smoke hookah, although the night didn't go so well...I was able to get pictures before I stepped out
say Hi to my faux hair Ms. spice lol
(finally took out the braids phew!)
I decided to try her for the night 
tell me what you think! 
more pics after the jump break!

Syndrome de Bl^amer

Blame me for not being there,
because you never wanted to be there
Blame me for not making you happy,
because you never wanted to be happy
Blame me for time wasted,
because you never thought of time spent
Blame me for being fake,
because you never wanted to be real
Blame me for being selfish,
because you never thought about me 
Blame me for your low self esteem
because you made it show
Blame for me making you hurt
because you made yourself hurt 
Blame me for not being a friend 
because you were the friend
Blame me for not showing love
because your pride couldnt let you
Deep down inside you know you want to blame one thing,
because you let yourself blame me

                                         C'mon...the beat? sick! the studded /spiked jacket? the freaking shoes? drooling   "Cotton candy, lace and gold" lol 
Ofcourse I had to check out her other vidoes and who she was
Name: Iggy Azalea
Hometown: Australia
Rap artist Mixed tape: (Ignorant Art), very gimmicky in a okay way (cause shes "different"), STYLE on point! shoe game on point! what else? SHE'S BAD! 
 According to global grind, "The badass blondie dropped a mixtape called Ignorant Art last month and since then, has been making her rounds".
Here are some of her other videos and her youtube page here

"Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it."

We are Family! (ASA weekend cont.)

                                                                              Blog bugs!

I thought to continue my weekend segment of how my school celebrated their ASA weekend and I was thrilled to have spent it with my wonderful cousin Evelyn,  we had the chance to bond very well as we  explored Houston and what it had to offer.

           One of my greatest shock was realizing how much Downtown Houston Night life has painfully diverted to the house of boredom, My cousin and I walked by shut down Clubs that were said to be popping back then, only left to enter places with not a spec of living thing but lifeless music and empty room with a bar lol ,
                              Never the less, we still got to enjoy ourselves..and we enjoyed every bit especially our
                                             long interesting gist( of course you know we girls love to talk)

                                     "I live for nights I can't remember with the people I can't forget"

                   I got the chance to do her make-up, so I was very excited since Im still an amateur proclaimed MUA lol  check out the pictures :D

Nothing better than going out and not spending a dime! 

Our eyebrows speak for its self! fierce! 

I love her has such a different look! she did her signature side twirl for me too

I love statement pieces, mostly necklaces, my collection is crazy! 

shes mean mugging the camera here lol 

I love my family to death!  
Hope you all are having a great week? Can't wait to continue my postings I have so much to show you guys but for now...ENJOY!!

ASA Weekend Bliss! Photobucket

Hey dearies! guess who's back? lol. *peeps around the room*  As I promised, I'm going to keep stepping up my blogging game! I think it's utterly exciting just giving a rundown on certain events and experiences I'm proud to be part of, this past weekend was no exclusion,
                    For those of you that are unaware, I am a college student; although I can't wait to be done,                     

                          My school (oops not naming)
 hosted their annual African Student Association (ASA) weekend. It was filled with joy, laughter, fine boys, fine girls, ugly boys, ugly girls, (no pun intended)  big, small and flat buttocks, different races: black, white, yellow, red, bleached, orange etc  (do not take me seriously) cool fashion statements, fashion fails and can I say BIG HAIR! EVERYWHERE! 
                       Trending:  lots and lots of high waisted distressed denim shorts with banteaus, prints and colorful Blazers! 
              Not to mention, My lovely cousins came to visit to as well as my long time high school friend. 
                         SO ......Long story short...The weekend was even more promising!
                                            Enjoy the pictures and let me know what you think!
