Just kidding, I didn’t even go. 

I pretty much spent my weekend recovering from the horrible week that consisted of finals.  I know that I blog a lot about school and how much it’s  killing me because of how difficult it is, but I cannot stress enough how important it is to always challenge your mind.  Higher education is important and knowledge is power. And lastly, nothing will ever come easy in life. 

Now, I’m not telling everybody that they have to go to college because you don’t.  If you already know what it is that you want to do in life and college isn’t involved, then don’t go. I know that I don’t need a college degree in order to make YouTube videos and to blog about what products that I like, but I do need a bachelor’s in either English or Journalism in order to become a beauty editor at any magazine, which is what my dream job/life goal is.  I knew that in order to reach my ultimate goal, I needed to get that college education… and that’s why I decided to come back to UCSB after a four year absence. 

If anyone reading this is on the fence about returning back to a classroom, weigh your options. Are you going because you’re bored and you miss school? Or are you going because you need to go in order to pursue a dream? 

Trust me, I had contemplated going back to school for what seemed like an eternity, simply because I was so embarrassed to tell people that I was a college drop out.  There isn’t really anything wrong with it, but the reason why was because I wasn’t doing anything awesome with my life.  If I dropped out of school to become an assistant to some prestigious make up artist in Hollywood, then I’d have no problem telling anyone that I dropped out of school… but its’t the fact that I was sitting in a windowless building for 8 hours a day and having orders barked at me every once in a while.  I wasn’t happy with my life. 

After discovering a love and passion for cosmetics, I became a make up artist and started practicing make up on whoever I could.  I would charge dirt cheap or practically nothing for weddings because I needed the practice and the experience, and as the famous saying goes, “practice makes perfect.” Soon, I would realize how much I loved to write. I write everyday, I still do, whether it’s in this blog, for school, my journal in my room, or my private blog, because it’s therapy for me.  Being able to transfer my thoughts onto another medium gives me satisfaction and a peace of mind that nothing else can bring me. After realizing that maybe I had a talent for this, it hit me that my calling in life was to become a beauty editor.  Although extremely challenging, I told myself that this is what I needed to do as my profession and after some research, I found out that I needed a bachelor’s in English.  It was almost like a sign from up above telling me that choosing to be an English major was the right choice and for some weird reason, I feel like it was planned… 

Anyway, the point of this blog post is to tell anyone out there that you don’t need to go to school and get a Harvard education in order to become successful, but you should always challenge yourself to make yourself better than you were yesterday.  Don’t get comfortable and don’t stay stagnant! Get up and do something and make your dreams happen! 

Love,

Jenn

right now.

Ok, so…. I fuuuuuuuuucked up. like super super hard. I pretty much decided on a whim that it would be better for me if I dyed my hair back to a darker color and hoooooooooooly fuck I was wrong. I literally wanted to die and instead of living with it, I decided to go over it with an auburn color which resulted in PURPLE. I don’t mind the purple color but it was the fact that NO JOKE, it was turning grey. I guess because I was a platinum blonde, the color wasn’t sticking. UGH.

So I didn’t know what to do.  I guess I should stick it out and just live with it?? I deeply regretted my choice and then I decided to look at my salon’s website to see what options I had.  Then I saw that they had a service called “color cleanse” which strips your hair of the mistake color.  Then I wanted to know more about it so I went to research it but then I came across this product called Color Oops.  I saw a bunch of satisfied individuals… like a BUNCH. I researched it more and more and more and then I decided that I was going to abuse my hair even MORE (if that was even possible) and give it one last shot with this Color Oops product.

I’m sure that there are tons and tons of people who can vouch for this product and explain to you how to use it, but so far…. I’m sitting in it and waiting for my 20 minutes to pass so that I can rinse.  Now, because I’m an impatient little bitch, I decided to put this stuff on my damp hair because I discovered this product when I got out of the shower. I looked at the directions and it said that it SHOULD be used on dry hair, but not a must… so I decided to just use it on my damp hair and see whats the worst that could happen.

It’s almost 20 minutes and I can DEFINITELY see that the color is lifting (PRAISEEEEE JESUS!!!) but its nowhere near the platinum blonde and I’m sure that its because I put it on dry so it’s processing VERY slowly. I figured that I would wait double the time so 40 minutes should do.  Honestly, I don’t care if I have to cut my hair to an A-line, I need my blonde hair because I just don’t feel right as a non-blonde. 

I KNOW that it sounds weird because I’m asian… and it’s not natural, but hoooooooly crap. I cannot and I will not go back to a dark hair color for a long time. 

It’s been 26 minutes and for the last 5 minutes, I took a blow dryer on med heat to the shower cap.  It definitely quickened up the process and I could see it lightening up right before my very eyes. …So I guess I shall wait another 10 minutes. I can already see some strands getting white which is AMAZINGGGGGGG.

Ok, so after sitting in it for 1 hour with my hair damp, my hair has gotten to an ashy blonde.  It’s not platinum which is a huge bummer, but honestly, I’m growing to like it so I’m not complaining.  After all, its a huge improvement from the nasty shade or purple I had this morning. 

All in all, I”m obsessed with this stuff. I’m happy I bought a second, just in case, and I’m sitting here with my hair in a shower cap, saturated in coconut oil as a treatment. yay!

Well Hello and GOOD morning Lipstick lovers! Here we see a selfish selfie photo of myself this weekend. Mind you I was going to the beach, but whatever. Now, can we please feast your eyes on these lashes? I snagged these babies and Phame-xpo a couple weeks back and I am sad to say I didn’t purchase more than three..SAD FACE

these lashes are made by “MIss Adoro” number 423, and honestly, I can say these remind me of (if they are not better) than my beloved Shu Uemura lashes I have secretly kept Since 2010 when that line was sold here in the States.
IM OBSESSED and if anyone can find these babies for me for a decent price, I wlil buy 10 of them.

hello.

i’m sorry that we’ve been lagging so hard on… everything. i’m sitting here catching up on my glee because the death of cory monteith re-sparked my interest in the series again. 

what else? summer school is kicking my ass because i stupidly/ambitiously decided to take 3 classes.  for non-college students or rather…. people that don’t understand what is the big deal is, here it is. The UC system is based on the quarter system, not semesters.  that means that each quarter is only 10 weeks and people usually take about 16 units per quarter. so SUMMER SCHOOL has 2 sessions, A and B and each being 5 weeks. so 10 weeks, 2 classes each, it ends up being a full time load.  I AM TAKING 6 CLASSES. AAAAAHHHHHHHH. SOMETIMES I WANT TO DROP MY CLASSES, but no. i need to just freaking tough it out and get through it. 

anyway, i just turned in my midterms essays and now i’m realizing that finals is coming soon. it seems like I can’t really get a break… i think about papers in the shower and sometimes i just let my brain rot to hulu, but hey, i just need it.  it’s like what nice peter said.. sometimes you just need to rest. 

anyway, if you guys think that i’m neglecting youtube, please don’t think that. we just don’t have time to film as often, but don’t worry! we have new videos, new reviews on a bunch of stuff, and giveaways! and don’t forget to follow us on instagram!! @heyitsandreanjennay
