So, a friend of mine referred me to Sigma because she just recently bought their makeup brushes. Denise, my friend, said that they were amazingly good brushes. She's also a makeup guru, as I like to think of myself as a guru, so she has all sorts of makeup, different brands and brushes, so when she tells me that these brushes are of great quality I believe her. I actually needed new brushes too so I cannot wait to test these ones out. Check out their website, Sigma, they have some really great brushes with pretty decent pricing.

So, this past weekend, my husband and our friends took our kids to Disneyland. We were afraid it was going to rain but luckily it didn't, although it was pretty cold out, but there were still tons of people there! All of the kids had a lot of fun, we even stayed to watch the best show ever, Fantasmic. My husband and my oldest son had never seen the show, but overall I think they enjoyed it. It was a much needed mini vacation for us and the kids and I'm glad we got the chance to go and have some good family and close friends quality time together. Hope everyone else had a great weekend! Stay warm everyone.

I really hate to give this girl publicity, but ever since I saw her video, it just stuns me how ignorant people are. Alexandra Wallace recently posted a video on You Tube ranting about being annoyed by an Asian person talking on their cell phone in the Library at UCLA. I totally understand that she has the freedom of speech, but she was totally being racist and inconsiderate. She rants about someone talking to their family member, who is in Japan after the devastation of the 8.9 magnitude earthquake followed by massive tsunamis that killed hundreds, probably even thousands of people.

I'm pretty sure that its not only Asian people that talk on the phone in the library, but she classified it as being only Asians, and then mocking their language. Clearly she doesn't know the difference from a Chinese person to a Japanese person. This one anti-Asian rant she let loose will follow her for the rest of her life and haunt her. People will know that she's racists. Obviously she isn't as smart as she thinks she is. Anyway, if you haven't seen the videos yet, check it out below.

Here is another video of a rebuttal from DavidsoComedy. His rebuttal is pretty funny.

Working out

So today I started back on my work outs after two weeks of not working out due to catching a cold. Feels good to be working out again. I would love to lose about 20lbs, if not then losing the inches would work too. If anyone has any advice on what type of exercises I can do at home I would really appreciate it. I have a treadmill at home so I use that a lot. I also do the p90x Yoga, which is super intense! Then the basic lunges and squats and sit ups and crunches, dumbbells for curls and what not as well. I need to stay motivated, because some how I always end up quitting after about a month =(. Anyway, I guess I should start a daily log of my exercises, maybe that would help? Hope everyone has a fabulous Tuesday!

Weekend Things

So I know I haven't posted in a long time. Been very busy with the boys and so many Birthday's this past week!

For starters, I baked a cream cheese pound cake for my friend Jodine, who is expecting her first child in August yay. Anyway, I knew she loved Mrs. Field's cookies, so I wasn't going to bake cookies from scratch, just the pound cake. I layered the bottom with Mrs. Field's chocolate chip cookies, then a layer of pound cake, another layer of cookies and topped it off with a layer of pound cake. Of course adding home made butter-cream frosting in between. It was a lot of fun to make and decorate. It's not professional looking, but I'm getting some practice.

Next, I baked a chocolate chip double layer cookie for our friend Ralphy's Birthday. This time I baked a cookie from scratch. I was in a bit of a hurry because it was decided last minute to make a cake, so I just grabbed the recipe from the bag of Nestle's chocolate chips. I didn't really think of how to decorate this one, but I just went with a color theme. Our friend, Ralphy, is a Raider's fan so I just went with the Raiders color theme. Then my husband came home and said, "You should have made it a Charger's color theme!" LOL. I totally blanked it would have been hilarious to make a Chargers's color theme cake for him. Anyway, this one is not professional either, but I'm working on it.

I know the handwritting is a bit uneven and ugly, but keep in mind I was in a hurry. =)

Baking - Cakes

So, today I am attempting to bake a cream cheese pound cake. What I intend to do it layer the bottom with cookies to make it like a cookie cake and then put the pound cake on top, then decorate it with more cookies! I am excited, and a little scared because I have the whole idea implanted in my head, but afraid it won't come out like the way I planned. Hopefully it does! It won't be anything extravagant, just a trial run. Wish me luck!
