Review: Physician's Formula Mineral Bronzer

*This is going to be really quick.  I'm feeling sick. xP*

As mentioned in my CVS Haul, I bought this Physician's Formula Mineral Bronzer which is suppose to be good for your skin and prevents breakouts.  And so far, I think it's been doing a good job.

Now I want to mention that I wear this bronzer for contouring, not for like tanning or whatever.  It was just dark enough to be noticeable, but not overpowering.  I just use a regular blush brush to apply. 

I also want to note that this does not have "sparkles".  I know a lot of people like to put glitter on their face to make them even more goofier looking but this is one of the nice bronzers that doesn't have that kind of crap in it.  Thumbs up for that. 

The price is...price-y.  I think it was like $10-13 (US currency).  I noticed that many of PF's products are really price-y for a drugstore brand.  But you know, this also tells you something about the product.

Anyways, I don't know anything else to say but it's a descent product.  You get a lot of bronzer for the price which is (I guess) is a plus, but I still don't like the price.  It should be a crime to have that high of a cost for drugstore products.  It hasn't broken me out, and you usually can't say that about most mineral powders.  So that's another good thing.  Ok, the compact is bulky, which is annoying if you're planning on carrying it around in your purse of something...

Do I recommend this product? Yes, I do. 


I sorry this is a cruddy review.  I'm like in and out of it today.  But I felt like this has been sitting up in the attic for a while now, and need to be dusted off and placed out for everyone to enjoy..

Once Again...More Shopping

Argh! It is sooo very aggravating when a store doesn't have anything you need!

I went to Target yesterday, looking for the following:
-Sonia Kashuk Hidden Agenda Concealer palet
-Eye lash curler refills
-Almay TLC Finishing powder

Everything was practically cleared out.  No concealer pallet, no refills, and no TLC powder.  What the heck?! So I bought this stuff:
-Maybelline Dream Matte Powder
-Loreal Studio Secrets Anti-Redness Primer
-NYC Eyelash Curler

I'm planning on taking the maybelline and Loreal back.  I don't think I got the right shade for Maybelline. And I'm pretty sure Loreal still tests on animals.

It's just ticks me off... darn you, Target, darn you.

Getting somewhere with my request post.  I'll have that done very soon. 

Sorry for the delay.

I saw that Big Mama's House movie. It's not even worth making a separate review.  (3/5)  It was a dumb funny.  Its just a waste-your-time type of movie. 


Bronzer review coming soon!

Well, and that's it.  There really isn't any...wait.  I have something else. 

This... thing scared the crap outta me!

I was walking down the coffee aisle and turned around to see this weird looking toy sitting next to the Folgers containers. Does anyone know what this is?!

At home probably.

Have you ever drank soda from a straw? asked by blonde4christ

Yea, and I don't like it. I only do it because my aunt thinks that soda has rat pee on its lids, and she doesn't like it that people put their mouths on it.  Its weird for me to use straws..

Last time you took a shower? asked by blonde4christ

Last night...why? Do I smell?

do you like recieving flowers? Or would you if you never have? If so... what do you prefer? asked by blonde4christ

Yes.  I wear concealer, foundation, powder, blush, mascara, and eyeliner.  It's not really a lot. I don't glob it on.

I've asked this question before... but I'm bored and curious. SOOO... do read my blog? If so how often? If not often how many times have you looked at it? If you've never been you should check it out and tell me what you think: blonde4christ.blogspot.com asked by blonde4christ

Heaven.  Or Hell.  There is no purgatory since Jesus already came down to save us.  When he ascended he brought the souls out of purgatory. Well that's how I see it.  There really isn't a waiting list for the Kingdom of God.

Q&A: Part 1

All from formspring!

If I offered you my fantasy novel I've written for 5-10 dollars... a virtual version of the book, via e-mail. Would you buy it? ~blonde4christ

Hmm, depends on what type of book. But yeah, I think I'd be interested.

What do you feel about dating in middle school?

Silly.  Anyone younger than 15 shouldn't be dating.  It lead to baaaad stuff that kids that age don't fully understand.

What do you do when you feel sad?

I watch these videos: Relationships 1, Relationships 2.  I love Adande.  He's so wise. Then I talk it over with my friends.  Or I write about it. Sometimes both.

Ever beed kissed?

If you count kindergarden, then yes I have.

If your life was a song, what song would it be?

Umm, So Small by Carrie Underwood?  I don't know. . . there's too many choices.


*I'm doing that now!* Anyways, I'd make a list. Write in order what you need to do.  Give yourself two short breaks.  That's it.  Read the list over and over. Memorize it. Make sure you get rid of anything that might distract you.  Be focused. Remember this will help you on later in life...

What does your dream bedroom look like?

It's big.  Purple. Hmm maybe army green.  And has a window sit and lots of windows. And a built in book shelf.  Yeaaaaaaa. (oh plus a memory foam bed and a giant closet with a secret door to a secret room that has a bathroom in it.)  ^^

That's the last one for today.  I've got plenty more.  But I don't have time to do them all now. I'm still taking questions! So keep asking! :D

Until next time.

Valentine's Day Q&A [Edited]

Well, I only got one question.  But is better than nothing. [This was not meant to be rude, I was just a tad annoyed that I only got one question for this thing.  I'm really proud that my friend Lauren, asked or I'd look like a fool. Thanks Lauren, the comment was suppose to be directed toward other people; it wasn't mean to be directed toward you..]

Can I ask a question here?? Pls plz plz, I kinda skimmed your post so I think I can ask here:) uhhhhhh, what is, in your opinion, the best way to get a guy's attention for valentines day? ;) -------Lauren

How-To Get A Guy's Attention
    1. first and biggest rule ever.  Life will always show you you can't last with the guy you like by being someone else.  They will eventually find out the true you and your in a a world of hurt when they don't want to be with you anymore.  Lose-lose.
    1. I know that kind of contradicts with my first point.  But here's the thing: you need a conversation topic, right?
    2. And it doesn't have to be something you hate, if you think that baseball is kinda cool then do some research, watch a few games, go to some of his.  He'll think you're really cool for being a [insert his interest here] professor. 
    3. Don't go overboard.  Like knowing ever aspect of everything.  Get a basic idea.  Add humor to it. If you just ranting off facts he's going to think that's freaky.
    1. This is like the hardest thing for a girl.  It's really scary talking to a guy you really like thinking you might say something really dumb.  But if you just start with a casual "hi how you der" and work your way up to a casual convo.  Your as thick a gold.  (Idk what they heck that means, I think I just made that up).
  4. TEXT
    1. At some point try to get his number.  Text him every once in a while.  Especially if it was an odd day or something funny happened.  Then you can talk about it. 
    2. Only start texting when you've had some good amount of decently long conversations.  If you just had casual talk and nothing in common from those talks, you're definitely going to run out of things to say during texting.
    3. Do not text him everyday.  Let him text you first sometimes.  You'll be marked a stalker..
  5. TEASE
    1. When you get to that point where you guys have becomes friends, its time to tease.  Well not to the extreme, but like you know: "I broke another pair of earphones again." "*laughs*Well maybe if you didn't have old man ears then that wouldn't have happened, silly goose!" See how that was done? Definitely the laugh is an indication that your about to tease, "old man ears" is the tease, and the "silly goose" adds to the joke (just in case the comment sounds mean). 
    2. Keep it light and fun.  Don't go too far.  A comment or two is fine.  Keep smiling.  Look him in the eye.  Hope for the best!


I didn't have time to edit.  Please excuse any grammatical mistakes!

Beyond The Zone Styling Sauce: Experiment 1 (Conclusion)


'nouf said.

Actually, not really... It went bad.  All I got was some frizzy ends and limp waves that stayed for about an hour or so before getting frizzy too. 

This doesn't mean that the experiment won't work for you.  (We all have different hair types.)

More testing will continue!
For the anonymous comment: I did respond, but I'll say it here too.  I'm will accept your request. I just need some time to do it.

Sorry, for a boring post.

Operation: (1)wash hair without fancy products like volumizer (2)comb hair, create part (3)apply pea-sized amount of Beyond The Zone Styling Sauce in hair, work through (4) part hair in back horizontally to make two even sections (5)clip top part of hair on crown (6)braid the bottom section, hold it with a hairtye (7) unclip top section (8) evenly part top section vertically so there is now two sections for the top (9)braid each section separately, give each a hairtye (10) sleep in braids (11) check braids next day see if dry (12) if wet: keep in longer or blow dry; if dry: take out braids.

Hope this works.  See you later for an update!

Right To Life

"I didn’t take the time to post this expecting you to drastically change your mind, nor did I do it out of pride, but I’m pro-life and just want to explain why, so hatemail is not necessary.

For one, go ahead and image search “abortion” on google. Tell me what you think. Let me forewarn you it may hurt your eyes to see. That only means I’m making my point clear.

Secondly, I like to think to myself what if that the fetuses/embryos/infants that show up in the search were me. Now we all know I’m none of them, but somebody was. Whether you want to think they are capable of understanding pain is your choice, I can’t tell you you’re wrong because I don’t remember being in the womb quite frankly.

I am a man who believes knows in a higher power, and I do my best staying loyal to the 10 commandments; do not murder being one of them. I also remember Jeremiah 1:5 “I knew you before you were in the womb”. I believe each person was created for a purpose, and I also understand some fetuses die naturally, but that doesn’t justify we can kill them.

Abortion=kill fetus. I understand if you search up the definition in a dictionary, they all manage to avoid the terminology ‘kill’, instead using ‘terminate’, ‘execute’, ‘expell’, etc. but they all mean the same thing to me. Kill=murder. Murder=Exodus 20:13

I’d get into detail how America’s constitution is flawed on this topic, but that’s not what concerns my blog, and not all of us on here are American, so send an ask if you are curious." ~endlesspraise.tumblr.com

^from Bleah Brian

Look up "the silent scream" on youtube.  It's an old video, but really eye opening.  Please know, it is sensitive material.

Be informed. Know your facts.

CVS Haul

So I'm retiring my old Clinique brush--which I've had for a little over a year now--as you can see in the left picture it's lost a considerable amount of hair.  (It use to be a dome shape now it looks like a contour brush.)

 These are the new brushes I bought.

(Top) Some drugstore brand dome brush
(bottom) Face Secrets: Bronzer brush

The rest of the stuff:

(Top) Physician's Formula: Mineral Bronzer
(Mid) Face Secrets: Brush Cleaner
(Bottom) Beyond the Zone: Super Sexy Sauce

 Sorry for the bad quality.  I used my cell phone to take these pictures.

Would you like me to do any reviews for these products?
