2 Year Twitter Anniversary!



March 11th 2011, it's been exactly 2 years since I joined Twitter.com. I can say that since initially joining back in 2009, after seeing Sean "Diddy Combs (@iamdiddy) on Ellen (@theellenshow) talking about twitter and being positive, I now make Tweeting my daily dose of inspiration and motivation. 


Following Celebrities and influential people on Twitter, gives me the boost I need each day to stay focused on my Goals and Life Dreams. 


In the last 2 years in Twitterville I have gained 2,200 followers (my Tweetie Pies), sent out 23,500 tweets and replies and received over 30 Celebrity replies including Mariah Carey, Tyrese Gibson and Kim Kardashian.

It's official... I have Bieber Fever




I recently saw The Karate Kid movie starring with Jaden Smith and fell in love with the Theme Song for the movie Never Say Never. This inspirational song by Justin Bieber featuring Jayden Smith, is about never giving up and giving everything you have. 


After seeing Justin Bieber play in the Celebrity All-Star NBA Game recently and his amazing performance with Usher and Jaden at The Grammy Awards, I decided to buy his album.


On Friday I found his 2010 My Worlds (Australia Edition) album at Target. After a few rounds in my stereo, I can confidently say that this is truly an amazing collection of tracks. Justin has a sweet voice and majority of these tracks I could sing along to after only 1 or 2 times listening to them. The CD contains his famous singles Baby, You Smile, and One Time. These songs are great however my favourite songs are the ballads Down To Earth, That Should be Me, Where Are You Now and Common Denominator


Never Say Never is not included on the My Worlds CD however it's available on a new album Never Say Never (The Remixes) and on iTunes (Australia) for $AUD2.19. 


JUSTIN BIEBER ~ Never Say Never (featuring Jaden Smith)

Never Say Never Lyrics
See I never thought that I could walk through fire.
I never thought that I could take the burn.
I never had the strength to take it higher,
Until I reached the point of no return.
And there's just no turning back,
When your hearts under attack,
Gonna give everything I have,
It's my destiny.
Chorus I will never say never! (I will fight)
I will fight till forever! (make it right)
Whenever you knock me down,
I will not stay on the ground.
Pick it up,
Pick it up,
Pick it up,
Pick it up up up,
And never say never.
I never thought I could feel this power.
I never thought that I could feel this free.
I'm strong enough to climb the highest tower.
And I'm fast enough to run across the sea.
And there's just no turning back,
When your hearts under attack,
Gonna give everything I have,
Cause this is my destiny.
(repeat Chorus)
Here we go!
Guess who?
JSmith and Jb!
I gotcha lil bro.
I can handle him.
Hold up, aight?
I can handle him.
Now he's bigger than me,
Taller than me.
And he's older than me,
And stronger than me.
And his arms a little bit longer than me.
But he ain't on a JB song with me!
I be trying a chill
They be trying to side with the thrill.
No pun intended, was raised by the power of Will.
Like Luke with the force, when push comes to shove.
Like Cobe with the 4th, ice water with blood.
I gotta be the best, and yes
We're the flyest.
Like David and Goliath,
I conquered the giant.
So now I got the world in my hand,
I was born from two stars
So the moon's where I land.
(repeat Chorus x 2)

Urban Army Chic NP Makeup Tutorial



Autumn 2011 is all about smokey greens, earthy tones and sexy dark nails. I created this new Makeup look Urban Army Chic, inspired by the black, green and brown tones of army print.

An Urban Army Chic girl is sexy, edgy, modern and most of all chic, but also not afraid to get a little dirt under her finger nails if she needs to. 


To create this look I used products by Napoleon Perdis:
NP Color Disc "Sparkling Bubbly"
NP Color Disc "Arabian Nights"
NP Long Black Mascara (double black)
NP Cheek to Chic Duo #4 
NP Lip Pencil "Sand" 
NP DeVine Goddess Lipstick "Hess" 
NP Luminous Lip Veil "Sienna Shimmer" 
NP Mini Travel Brush Set 
Maybelline Line Stiletto (blackest black)
Revlon Photo Ready Foundation
Mary Kay Mineral Foundation
