Landslide

I took my love and I took it down
Climbed a mountain then I turned around
And I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well the landslide brought me down

Oh, mirror in the sky
What is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above
Can I sail through the changing ocean tides
Can I handle the seasons of my life

Uh ah … uh ah …. uh ah …

Well, I’ve been afraid of changin’
‘Cause I built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Children get older
I’m getting older too

Well, I’ve been afraid of changin’
‘Cause I built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Children get older
I’m getting older too

Well, I’m getting older too

So, take this love and take it down
Yeah, and if you climb a mountain and ya turn around
And If you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well the landslide brought me down

If you see my reflection in the snow covered hills

Well maybe …
Well maybe …
Well maybe …

The landslide will bring you down.

I found his shirt…and I sat there motionless for an hour or so…but now it’s time to let it go. Let it go…surrender. For now.

Love

It’s 2013…almost Valentine’s Day. Perfect time to be pondering the question…how do you know you really love someone? Did I even love the person that I thought I loved? Is it true love or convenient love?

I had prayed to God this morning with a desperate heart asking for His guidance on what I should do…and in His timing He answered.

“Listen to my pleading, O Lord. Be merciful and answer me! My heart has heard you say, “Come and talk with me.” And my heart responds, “Lord, I am coming.” Do not hide yourself from me. Do not reject your servant in anger. You have always been my helper. Don’t leave me now; don’t abandon me, O God of my salvation! Even if my father and mother abandon me, the Lord will hold me close.”

Psalm 27: 7-14

Beauty rants

Usually the only person that would care about this post is…me. But I have a couple new beauty products I’ve tried that have been terrible for me. For example: Bare Minerals powder foundation. Did not cover any of my imperfections whatsoever…however big or small. Additionally couldn’t be used as a setting powder so I had to use an extra setting powder to mattify my face. This was the first product I’ve ever returned, and I felt terrible but I couldn’t see myself using it.

Another dislike! L’oreal lineur intense carbon black liquid eyeliner. The thing flakes off like crazy. If I accidentally touch my eyes at all…black peppery flakes beneath my eyes. So sad about my recent adventures in beauty since I felt that these products were rated as great by others.

So I don’t know what to do with my foundation dilemma. Any foundation I use breaks me out whether it’s high end or drugstore. Shu uemura, revlon, etc. The only thing that works for me is using Aveeno tinted moisturizer and concealing with Revlon’s photo ready concealer then setting with Revlon’s nearly naked powder or Tarte’s amazonian clay powder. Speaking of revlon nearly naked powder…it’s amazing!! I would say one of the best I’ve tried in the drugstore. I thought I liked rimmel’s stay matte powder but revlon’s looks natural no matter how much i apply on my face. Rimmel’s looks cakey if I apply too much.

Another rant…but a positive one~

I LOVE the new neutrogena moisture smooth colorstick! THE BEST lip balm/lipstick pencil I’ve ever tried. Revlon’s balm stains make my lips peel and so do the Tarte lip surgences. I love the color of the Tarte one though…it’s really really too bad I can’t love it. I’m really fixing to throw the others ones I have away since I can’t imagine reaching for any others. The only downside to the neutrogena is that it looks too frosty to me…but once the the initial application wears off after 3-4 hours the color still remains and it looks beautiful on the lips and the frostiness disappears.

Next favorite…the layla cosmetics nail polish in number CE 14. It’s not my absolute like the other nail polish I featured, but it’s a beautiful color perfect for the wintery times. It’s true to color in the bottle….oxblood color I would say?

I’ll do a post a non-beauty post sometime later this week! I’m actually trying to wean myself all these products…I seriously have a makeup addiction >.<
