Men Menu Of The Year!

Standard

Why hello there fellow wordpresser(: Before I take you into a whole new era of dericous Men Menu I wanted to review a product dupe that doesn’t really have anything to do with this post other than men and the new guy at my gym who resembles Old Glory (otherwise known as… Captain ‘Merica). So lets begin this review/dupe shall we?

A few days ago (more like 2-4 weeks ago…close enough) I went to go see The Avengers and it was hot but not because I was in a room with a massive screen with the toastiest guys in all Hollywood (well, probably lets be honest here) and not because of the 90+ temperature but because I was wearing my new Revlon Just Bitten Lovesick sister to Clinique Chubby Sticks. Confession! I swiped my Revlon magic on and didn’t even think to think (that was not a typo my friend) that I would have popcorn and drink in the Theatre and didn’t take my stain with me! Craziness! BUT this stayed on throughout the entire film, and then through realization I remembered it was a stain and that was its job I just wanted to say though that these are nicely pigmented and are great for parties and a little screen time with all those Avengers, whew!

Now to the real deal (insert the question of–Whats on the Men Menu for today?–) Ive decided I cannot possibly be able to devise them into a long list counting down from 18-1 with their attractiveness in mind (which is confusing/troubling and hurts my head wee bit to be rather frank with you) so Im being a lazy bum and am ranking them instead I know, I know party pooper much, ey? :

1) Chris Evans

Why hello there Sir Evans, you have some serious muscular madness going on there but your friend Chris Hemsworth beats you out just by a few points (we’ll get to him in a second) instead of lecturing on why I have a such great fondness for his face I must say I do quite enjoy his back-in-the-day vibe and classy values he also has a really nice profile.

I dub thee an 8-9

2) Chris Hemsworth

You know a scruffy face really does suit him he should keep it that way:) He has very pleasing abs and a very rich Australian accent and reminds me of a golden retriever five words for your troubles: Thats a lot of man

Rating: 10

3) Tom Hiddleston

AH BAH! Probably my most desired out of all these men he can sing, dance, rap, act and can do kick grass impressions and he can do them all without flaw, he’s an intellectual thinker and to top it off is incredibly toasty. He seems like the type of guy I’d creepily follow around and he’d never notice me until I would be doing something truly idiotic as in falling on my face while passing him and of course he’d just be the type to help me up but I’d crack up and fangirl and ruin EVERYTHING haha:)

Rating: 10

4) Aaron Johnson

I know its a young peecture but its cute:) Anyone ever seen Angus Thongs And Perfect Snogging? He’s in it(: and he’s looking rather toasty, with his brunn hair and sweet voice and then the mustache appeared.

Rating: 9

5) Christian Kane

Hes in the TV show Leverage, theres just something so Thor-like about him probably his long hair. I like to refer to him as Blondie cause I’m always forgetting his name xD

Rating: 8

6) Shemar Moore

Those eyes… I mean THEYRE BROWN yet so refreshing and gawjus its incredible…. O.O …

Is it weird he makes me hungry for chocolate?

Rating: 10

7) Matthew Gray Gubler

Whats not to love about a semi-nerdy man holding a puppy? He’s so adorably nerdy ❤

Rating: 10

8) Matthew Hussey

This man… hes cute, ey?:) I don’t really have much to say except……

Those beautiful eyes that could light a sunset, his voice like a thousand sonatas at once echoing into my mind over and over again!

Sorry for that I really just had to, ya know? I just haven’t really provided a explanation for them, should I keep up the cheesy narrating?

Rating: 8-9

9) Diego Luna

Oh yes, the movie he was in Dirty Dancing Havana Nights made me want to meet a cute Cuban boy and have him teach me how to dance:) ah, one can only dream…(:

Rating: 8-9

10) Paul Mccarteny

*sighs dreamily* “Look at those seductive eyes!” Said my best friend Kayla whilst staring at this picture, you’ve just read my  mind 🙂 Ive got something REAALLL personal to tell you, its embarrassing, but lets get it out in the open the first time I ever saw a picture of Paul Mccarteny and The Beatles I thought he was the cutest thing EVER and now to the confessing, he was my first crush in my entire lifetime ha!:)

Rating: 10

11) Channing Tatum

Suddenly I feel so conformist, but-but… LOOK AT HIS HAIR LOOK AT HIS EYES LOOK AT HIS FAACCEE! >.< haha:)

Rating:10

12) Bradley Cooper

Wow–hes–wow

Right up there with Sir Hiddles and Matthew Gray Gubler

Rating: Perfect 10

13) Viggo Mortenson

Did anyone else see Lord Of The Rings? Ah:) He was born to play Aragorn *insert long dreamy sigh*

Rating: 10

14) Orlando Bloom

O.O ❤

Rating: 10

15) Dallas Harder

I swear he’s like permanently photoshopped or something, he’s absolute perfection he’s one of those guys who you’re annoyed are gay, but he’s just so sweet and adorable and cutie pants 🙂

Rating: 10

16) King Faisal’s Grandson Who’s Name I Do Not Know

Awe:) Look at him in his little sweater innocently looking away(:

Rating: 10

17) Imran Abbas

So…cute… hehe:)

Rating: 10

18) Joseph Gordon levitt

*hums happily* This is actually a really good picture (not that I don’t know things about photography) the colors contrast nicely and the colors really seem to explode…. BUT back to this mans wonderful face, he almost reminds me of Heath Ledger.

Rating: 9

Ah, finally we are all wrapped up like the way they wrap the tinfoil of the burritos at Chipotle, I could really use some of that now, now that I mention it…. Weren’t these men all so attractive?!(: It blows my mind! Who was your favorite? ^_^

Hope you enjoyed todays post!

10 Of The Worst Beauty Looks

Standard

Hello and welcome to my blog, on this lovely Wednesday aftertoony-nightime (well, for me at least) I have been inspired to create this blog post of what I personally feel is the worst beauty looks and what may be beckoning fourth the zombie apocalypse:) I do hope you enjoy(:

ooh and P.S. Before we get started I just wanted to give tho a brief reminder of how lazy I was at NOT wanting to take photos of me in the 10 worst looks although it woudve been truly hysterical if I did, I promise next time:)

Now to actually get started:

1) Scruffy Caterpillar Eyebrows

Should be called eyebros more like as this look resembles a man– I should give her credit she pulls it off quite nicely, but probably not the best look for a job interview. This look in my mind is unkempt and not what a woman should have her eyebrows looking like, eyebrows should lie flat on the face it looks a lot smoother and more “finished” if i do say so myself:)

Avoid Scale– 7

How it can be avoided:

There are a load of ways to avoid this eybro disaster with your new best pal’s there names are Eyebrow Razor and Eyebrow Comb if you don’t know how to use one use these directions to help guide you through:)

* Lie the eyebrow comb flat on your eyebrow and with the razor bring it against the comb and go from there, since I’m a frady-cat I don’t like going too close to the hair in fear of razifying too much eyebrow hair off.

You can also avoid eyebros by using vaseline to shape them into place although if you use too much they can look a bit (well, lets be honest here, MORE than a bit) greasy.

2) Cat And Smokey In One Look

Okay so maybe this isn’t exactly classified as Cat and Smokey but I think you might (possibly) get the picture, ey?

Avoid Scale–9

How it can be avoided:

By simply not doing so:)

Tres) Bold Lips And Bold Eye

Ah, bold lips and bold eye this one also has a bonus–Blue Shadow– See so not only does the blue shadow distract from the purpé lipstick but its also too much and your not seeing one feature that stands out but the two main (main? hehe) all at once so it NOT ONLY LOOKS LIKE THIS BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE THIS.

Avoid Scale–10

How it can be avoided:

Focus on one feature of your face if you can’t decide which use your best feature for instance if you can pull off purple lipstick like she can use that and if you must, go super super super neutral with your eyes, whatever you like:)

4) Crimped Hair

Not crimped in my opinion more like fried and she also mixed (combined? hehe) it with straight hair

Avoid Scale– 7-9

How it can be avoided:

This look can be avoided by….hm…..

BUT I do have an alternative if you enjoy it but are tired of the look, you could go for some tight curls, similar and more nice looking (is that even a grammatical correct sentence?)

5) Cake Face

This is the best photo I could find it was either this one or one of Amy Winehouse and I didn’t want to review one of her looks and have ghosts and a wee visit from the grave and besides I do quite enjoy her vocals. But anyways but to my review of caked on foundation five words for you, this is not cake boss .

Avoid Scale– 10 as this looks doesn’t exactly appeal to anyone nor can anyone pull it off

How it can be avoided:

After your done applying foundation take a **soft** rag and in circular motions rub it around or if you’re not a cheapo which I am xD (if you are you are an amazing money saver) you can use your beauty blender

If you wanna avoid an oily nose use a piece of toilet paper and circularly rub this around on your T-zone

6) OVERLY Tanned Skin

As you may or may not have heard of Patrica Krentcil (Krentll?) well now you two are meeting! _____ meet our friend Patrica she enjoys tanning, considers tanning a hobby and is truly addicted you can read about the story here (actually made the news not only for that but for another surprise reason)

Avoid Scale– 10

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504083_162-57431758-504083/tanning-mom-patricia-krentcil-banned-from-over-60-tanning-salons-report-says/

How it can be avoided:

If you don’t want skin cancer and to magically age 20 years with every 10 and on top of that getting skin cancer I suggest using my favorite makeup artist Scott Barnes’s self tanning lotion which I read about in his book About Face (terrific book just FYI)

http://www.beautycollection.com/Skincare/Sun-Care_5/Scott-Barnes-Body-Bling-Original-4oz?utm_source=gbase&utm_medium=versafeed&utm_term=104264&utm_campaign=health+beauty+personal+care+cosmetics+skin+care&utm_content=scott+barnes&v_traceback=c0709_2235_f0709_2247&gclid=CITcoY6Zk7ECFYcBQAodkzJCgw

7) Chapped Cracky Lips

These babies are never considered even the slightest fashion statement and are by no means “sexy” so try carrying around a lip gloss or chapstick with you:)

Avoid Scale–5-6 I put into consider of those who don’t really have time or forgot or just have problems with chapped lips

How it can be avoided:

Try a lipscrub I can name a few, mix honey with sugar, rub on lips and PRESTO, Use your toothbrush rubbing in circular motions this can be a little rough on the lips  must say, after these two use a lip moisturizer. You can also use vaseline as well:) And if you’re too lazy to make a lip scrub you can buy this one  from Lush (I’ve got this one, we can be lip scrub twins!!)

https://www.lush.co.uk/search/results/?term=bubblegum+lip+scrub

http://www.lushusa.com/Bubble-Gum/03056,en_US,pd.html

They’ve got LOADS well maybe three or four flavors but these are great! And are edible too I haven’t had to apply chopstick constantly in months! Definitely a great buy!

8) Natural Hair Roots Poking Out Of Overly Dyed Hair

Tsk Tsk Tsk nothing natural about these sugar shack

Avoid Scale- 8-10

How it can be avoided:

Either don’t dye your hair or keep on constantly dying it but never let it grow out on its own trust me it’ll take a while for that to come into ombre hair

9) Eyebrowless Trend

It seems as though when you’re subtracting eyebrows not only are you doing that but your also taking away emotion and definition of the face.

Avoid Scale– 9-10

How it can be avoided:

Either you can or can’t pull it off thats one way to look at it or decide

9 1/2) Tattooed On Eyebrows

Do you see what I mean? Do you see what I mean? There should be no other words to describe this picture other than don’t take the risk!

Avoid scale– 8-10 Although some people are able to pull this off…

How it can be avoided:

Try to think of an alternative, reshaping them eyebrows(?) Filling them in(?)

10) ALL (well most) Of These Looks Put Together

For this last one for your own enjoyment I decided to provide you with a multitude of photos  well, just three really.

Avoid Scale–100

How it can be avoided:

Accept yourself as you truly then and only then will you find a happy medium and be content my young padawan.

Hope you enjoyed todays post!~ Sorry it ran long:) and did you notice most of them were about eyebrows? haha:)

See you later ❤

How To Stop A Man In His Tracks With A Single Glance

Standard

FORGIIIVVEE MEEE!!! I have put this off far too long, ey? I am really really sorry but like all do I deserve an explanation? Perhaps… –BUT– I do promise a blog post for every.single.day this week so be prepared for a MASSIVE lexilush overload if I do say so myself:) Before we get to the topic of the day I wanted to give you my explanation of my over-three-week prolonged absence but before I do so I have an excuse to back up this excuse I just spent so much time of my absence trying to think up an excuse and I just got so caught up in life that I almost totally let myself go… that wasn’t very good was it? I do apologize though *bows down and pleads for mercy* but before you get out the angry villagers, pitchforks, sharp objects and fire I want to get to the topic of the day! Cheers! This calls for a rather intensified, glorious intro am I right? As you can see in the title I have provided you with it says “How To Stop A Man In His Tracks With A Single Glance” and your probably thinking, “WHAT? Lexi! No one on the face of EARTH could ever excel to such a thing!” Right?

Wrong, in fact I’ve done it, Sayuri and  traditional japanese Geisha have and even some women in modern day times. In this blog post Ill be teaching you how to basically attract a man with your shirt on not only that but with your eyes. Looks don’t exactly matter at this point–granted the way you look at him. Ill be referencing Memoirs Of A Geisha a lot in this post so prepare yourself. Now to begin!

Step 1) This is the first step and possibly the most troubling (well, for me that is) :

* Make sure he is looking at you and I don’t mean just a wee glance here and then back to whatever he could have been possibly been doing a few seconds ago. A full on look. Now this shouldn’t take you but 1-3 seconds to understand that he’s full on looking at you gazing if not, we shall call this man who is looking at you stare “The Look Of Interest” who about them apples?

* Got that section of part one down? Good, now *Tip* If you can, and can do this quickly (lets say within a matter of seconds check to see if his pupils are dilated, an open face (as in eyebrows going up and dropping down, slightly opened mouth, wider eyes)

* Second section of le first step: Make sure you and him are going to pass each other all this evaluation should be done when you are about 5-7 feet away

Step 2) After you’re down with step-o one-o look down at your feet until you see his feet about 1-2 feet away

Step 3) Now time to face the music! *intense atmosphere, insert Mission Impossible or Indiana Jones theme music here* Look up at him a slightly prolonged glance should be from 1-4 seconds

* Second section of third step: Look down at your feet once again but insert a coy smile into play here, if this was a movie or book this would be the climax of the entire film or book. *Tip* Like your reflecting on a good memory or think of something like “I wanna lick hot fudge out of your belly button” whatever face either one gives you then do that, rock on with yo bad self!

And if this video helps as a veideological reference then please use this!

Psssstttt if you wanna see the glance she give him its 4:15 try to mimic the glance in the mirror until you feel you’ve gotten it down well:)

Now my young padawan I want YOU to seek out a target and use this glancing method, it takes time so don’t sweat it(: Everything takes time and everyone had to start somewhere even Michael Phelps, Michael Jordan, Scott Barnes you catch my drift?:)

Randomo (well not so random tips) Tips :

* If it helps when your glancing upwards pull a Princess Diana and tilt your head down as Sayuri did in the clip, it makes you look even more likable, attractive and makes men want to protect you (which is a good thing) and also makes you appear innocent

* Its really all in the eyes and once you understand that you’ll become a master eye-glance-giver

And that my friend is how we get and attract a man, on your feet; not off them… except for that guy in the clip he sort of fell off his bike but alas…

I hope you enjoyed todays post:) You’ll do amazing! And if you like you can tell me your result(s), and if something like that bike incident happened I would love to hear about it:) And if i missed anything or if you have any questions holla at me sista fraannd:) hehe(:

The Road to Womanhood Sonata #1

Standard

Hello and happy happy Friday! I have decided to create a series of unfortunate events erm… or series of fortunate events more so, these series of fortunate events will conclude of us braiding our hair and gabbing about American Idol (10 points to the first person who can figure out where that line is from) in all seriousness this new blog era will have a woman of the month, a superwoman mask of the month (with some hidden meaning of how i think the month has gone, ha!) random odd beauty tips and last but not least little ways to make yourself know and understand that yes indeed we can all feel beautiful in our own secretive ways:) So, to kick off this new little monthly event this new The Road to Womanhood will be our Sonata #1 (Sonata just sounds so much more cute than event or section) Month #1 of June! Cheers!

Woman Of The Month:

Nitta Sayuri

Sure, she’s a fictional character but you’ve got to give her credit not only was she able to stop a man in his tracks with a single glance but she became one of the most desired Geishas of her time, she withheld beauty, charm, poetic sense and depth of perception but she was also a very clever lady. At the moment I would label her as the ideal woman. You should read it, that is Memoirs of a Geisha its amazing and intense my all time favorite part of the whole book and movie was the part where Mameha was training her how to be a Geisha (this was the final step to becoming a Geisha I might add) which was full on stoping a man in his tracks with a single glance, if you haven’t seen the movie or read the book ill give you a link to the my all-time favorite part!

Look at 4:38 this part is so hilarious (well for me) because the movie is all serious and intense-like an then next thing ya know she gets this guy to literally fall for her and not to mention the killer crash landing into a moving cart with chickens and a vegetable stand! If you were to much of a meanie pants to watch the video that i have ever so graciously provided your with that was the moment in a nutshell, no i have to admit its not that funny in type BUT if you watch it i guarantee you will be amused…or at least i was:) And on my next blog post since i don’t want this one to run long ill teach you how to do just what our friend Sayuri did; the impossible otherwise known as stopping a man in his tracks with a single  glance its pretty easy got it on my second try(: oh and i might also add… with little makeup on.

Unmasking Le Mask Of The Month

Ah, june, naughty naughty there you go again making us be halfway through the month already, inconceivable! … breezy and convenient which  perfectly explains the mask of the month (see what I did there? funny, ey?) introducing… EL CONCOMBRE MASQUE (thats the cucumber in Spanish… all I know is that the last part there is in French) This mask is just as the description inconceivably moisturizing and refining, breezy feeling even when the mask is on! and perfectly convenient especially for Winter i personally highly recommend this mask for people with normal, combination and sensitive skin. A mask brand that I’ve been using lately is Freemans Cucumber Peel-Off Mask 16oz+-(or 6 fl oz…) of pure joy which you can get at your local wal-mart, tesco, albertsons, kroger or whatever local store or drugstore is near you. These babies range for different prices from as low as (the baby package) $1.37-$6.49(The bottle or tube or whatever) I have to admit though the first time I used it I really was not impressed although I did seem to enjoy the cleaning inside and out feeling that gave me the sam breezy feeling that Witch Hazel (hehe kinda sounds halloweeny, ey?) gave me. If you’re open for the buy ill have the link ready for you pronto!

This is the one I bought:) They’ll  give you it for a fair price but then again shipping etc. it would just be easier to get at your local drugstore(: That is, in my opinion but alas:

Los Randomos Beauty Tips and Beauty Do’s and Facts:

When creating a magnificent smile do try pursing your lips together and making the octopus noise “Oi, oi” <– That is crazy but totally works if your trying out for a more flattering smile without  it coming  off as overkill another tip to go along with this tip is as your saying “oi, oi” sort of smile at the same time

If your up for this (and if you can do, which i could not succeed for the third day at least) when you wake up in the morning within the first 10-30 minutes to get your digestive system in track and such be sure to drink at least one cup of water this will not only help you to maintain a slim figure but also to wake up properly

Did you know (non scented) PAM cooking spray makes your skin look dewy but not greasy, you may be thinking now “Lexi, are you seriously suggesting to spray cooking spray on our innocent, pure bodies?” yes, yes indeed now back to what I was saying after a good tan or shower spray a light layer over your body then PRESTO CHANGEO! Your skin looks dewy and shiny. I wouldn’t recommend spraying this on your skin if you have oily skin, not a good idea.

I hope you enjoyed todays post!:) See you next month with Sonata #2!

Beauty Pop! …Literally

Standard

Summer is here! Exams are over! Now time to kick back hit the beaches, clubs and friends–oh wait summer time is my time to curl up and sleep until 12:30 having watched Lord Of The Rings while playing World of Warcraft all the while on stumble upon hitting up on all my favorite beauty blogs:) Ah, summertime(: But back to the point, what i wanted to talk to you guys about today was something new, well new for me at least i came up with the idea while thinking up fun frozen treaties for myself, well at least i’d like to think i came up with the idea but here we go!

Not only are these lovelies fun to make and fun to eat BUT they also supply nice antioxidant build and are brilliant to cool off with. I give you *____Insert drumroll here___* ICE FACE BEAUTY QUEEN POPS i haven’t exactly thought up a clear name yet but lets just call them beauty pops then, ey? You’re probably wondering how and what these babies do ill give you a wee internet tutorial in 5….4….3….2….1….

What you need to make the nectar of the Gods (Even though ambrosia is infact the nectar of the Gods…):

1 Glass jar or just mixing bowl with a dip that allows liquids to flow out effortlessly

1+ toothpicks depending on how much beauty pops you’re making

1-2+ tin cuppies once again depending on how much you’re making, I’m only making two:)

1-2+ Measuring Cups (Optional)

1+ Tea of Choice

Now we have what we need, Time to face the music!(:

Step Uno

Pour boiling water in glass jar and add tea bag

*Random Fact That I Did Not Know At One Point* Apparently hot water helps to release the flavors and tea leaves so, use hot water

Step Two

Now this part is TOTALLY optional, but this is the part where we add a little skin medicine, I’m adding 1tbs of honey to help moisturize and enlighten my skin, but you can add whatever you like everything down (or up?) from lemon juice to vitamin D supplement

Step Three

Pour out tea from the glass jar and into little tins and add toothpicks to the wee tins:) You can just drink the rest of the tea or save it for later

Step Four

Off to the freezer with you!!

Step Five

I know, I know, this is the part where things get awkward during these 5-7 hours I typically forget I even put them in the freezer! But what I do to kill some time is to sleep, considering i do these at night and sleep until (well, naturally) I wake up so while you are waiting Ill help give you ideas for some entertainment, Read a book, If you read body language (Like I) you could always put in a movie, turn off the volume and use their body language to guess whats going on and how their feeling:) OR You could make some other beauty funness, or try Stumbleupon.com <– The best place EVER

Step Six

Its morning now *yawns* well, for me at least:) And now we pop those babies out of the freezer and warm them up in the palms of our hands this helps to loosen up the frozen tea

Step Seven

Now that we’ve warmed them up (this is the part where things get saucy)use the toothpick to spin them around until it gets warm enough to pull out. Now the part we’ve ALL been waiting for, *Caution* Will be very cold i have to admit these do take some getting use to but they are infact worth it:) Pick up….well pull out the nectar of the gods with the tooth pick you have ever so gracefully inserted into the tea mix and rub the tea in circular motions around thy face:) I love love this ice facial because not only does it close pores it nourishes and replenishes the most amazing thing about it though is its greatness also varies with what you mix it in with wether it be vitamin D or honey or milk it all has/does different effects especially for different skin types for oily skin you might use honey or just plain green tea while for dry skin you use honey or vitamin E or D with green tea:) and for acne prone skin you can use vitamin E, honey and advil, look at all the possibilities!:) Have fun(:

Makeup Utensils In An Art Store?

Standard

Yes, Yes, Yes! You can get good quality brushes at an art store! The same quality, professional-like equality as a Sephora brush.

But you should become familiar with the brushes first as in when you’re looking for them in an art store I’m not saying you should go all the way and purchase an entirely new collection of makeup paint brushes…but thats near to the idea. When choosing your new brush, touch the bristles look at the handle make sure its good quality and if you don’t know what good quality in a paint brush is, ill tell you what to look for: thick bristles, a good handle that won’t break, make sure the brush isn’t too plasticy.

A Painter Sees Paint Brushes A Makeup Artist Sees Makeup Brushes

I personally can’t see much of a difference i mean you’ve got a fan brush, eyeliner brush, lip brush, concealer brush, and foundation brushes. Im not saying that the Art Store will carry a lot of the other essentials (Stippling brush, blush brush, contour brush etc.) but they are pretty darn close, ey?

Well, whats your opinion on the whole paint brushes as makeup brushes? I think its a pretty sweet deal(: Ive already purchased a very good quality fan brush, powder brush and a swooped eyeliner brush hehe:)
