Miss My Sis


We been through a lot, both of us.... together and apart. But we must recognize truth and take everything that crosses our path, as a blessing. In good and bad times, It's growth. And from It's beginning til It's end, we know that It's all Love. Trusting God with all - we are, cause... 
He truly knows what He's doing. Everything will be alright. Remember that!

I love you Selo, the best sister ever!

Michael vs Xscape




After his death, Michael's legacy been making more money than any passing celebrity. 
What are you're thoughts about it? Are you for or against the money making? 




Xscape is the second posthumous compilation album of previously unreleased tracks by American singer Michael Jackson. It was released on May 9, 2014 by Epic Records and MJJ Music. It is the eleventh album released by Sony and Motown since Jackson's death in June 2009.



Michael was the first release of all new Michael Jackson material in nine years since Invincible in 2001.
Michael is the seventh Jackson album to be released by Sony and Motown/Universal since Michael Jackson's death in June 2009.



Which of the "new material" albums did you like the most?


A few favorites: A place with no name, Do you know where you're children are, Blue gangster, Monster, Behind the mask...

Daddy's Shirt Kind Of Day

Today was super hot and then suddenly the weather switched to super cold. So typical...


How cute is this dad and his son holding hands?

Shape It Up


1. Brush your brows upwards.
2. Cut only a tiny tiny bit of the ends.
3, 4. Pluck the hairs that's under the end of the wing/above and the ones in the mid section.
5, 6, 7. Measure the distance on both sides to see if they are equal. 
(Just as the picture shows).
8. When you're satisfied, then lightly fill in the brows where It's needed. 
Use a color that is close to your own brows, or a slightly lighter one.

This is the standard way on how to get the winged shaped brows. 
Besides the natural look, (untouched) brows. This method for me works the best, It gives you that awake "little lift" touch. Follow the 8 steps correctly and you should end up with the perfect summer eyebrows.



Bible Verse Sunday



prayer - Gracious God, give me wisdom so that I may know the blessings in store for me!

Neck Stretch



godiz - I sometimes wake up with the stiffest neck, I'm sure some of you do too.
I've tried several stretches... and this is by far the best one. Try it yourself, you'll instantly feel less tension in your neck. I felt an immediate relief! Whom ever came up with this idea, is a genius!

Sweet Treat Bar



godiz - the "candy monster" replaced her candies this "good friday" for these bars.
