Life Update: Hit the Road

Hello World!

As you already know from my Saturday post, my sister and best friend graduated from college this weekend! So that was the most exciting thing that happened last week. Last week was finals week, so...

Anyway, right now I'm on the road with my father to pick up brother from Lubbock. So that's like an 8 hour drive! So I'll miss the game tonight! :(

Well that's all.

Au Revoir!

Origins Voxbox Review

Hello World! So a couple of weeks ago, I received my first Voxbox from Influenster filled with Origins goodies, free and complimentary for testing purposes! Here's my review of all the products I got!

High Potency Night-A-Minis Overnight Renewal Cream - 4/5 stars
This cream claims to boost your skin's radiance, and I think it's fairly successful in doing that. When I first applied it, I noticed it was very heavy, which I wasn't sure about because I have oily skin, and heavy creams usually don't work for me. But I guess it's supposed to seep into your skin overnight, so that's why it's so thick. The next day after using it, I noticed my skin did look more radiant and smoother, and I definitely wasn't as shiny as I was when I applied the cream the night before.  They also claim that the relaxing aroma will help you sleep, but I think it smells like pine trees, which isn't very relaxing to me, but to each's own. This product retails for $43, which I think is kinda of ridiculous for what it does. It's a good product, but it's not really anything special. There are cheaper products that perform just as well. So if you got that JD lifestyle, and money ain't a thang, then I would definitely recommend this product. But if you're like me, then I think a cheaper alternative is the Olay Age Defying Classic Night Cream, which retails for $11.

Life Update: Mann's Troubles

Hello World,

So last week was a trying time for my son, Mr. Mann. :( On Tuesday, he had to be rushed to the hospital because he could barely move, and he was gagging and choking, and super bloated. Oh the poor baby was in so much pain. So my sister drove like a mad women to get him to the hospital, and then after awhile the doctor comes out, and says he might have GDV, which is when the stomach gets really bloated and then flips over, thus cutting off blood circulation. And that would be a $3000 surgery!

But fortunately, she went back and got some more x-rays, and Mann was looking better and we were able to bring him home that night, just in time to watch the Warriors game. (He knows what his mother's priorities are!)

'Chocolate Brown' Makeup Look

Hello World! Here's a tutorial on how I got this chocolate brown makeup look!

Step 1: Wash and moisturize! I used Origins Checks and Balances Frothy face wash and Origins GinZing Energy-boosting moisturizer. I also used their GinZing Refreshing eye cream for the dark circles under my eyes. I received all these products and more complimentary and free from Influenster for testing purposes. See my review of all the Origins products I got on Thursday!

Step 3: Foundation!  I used Clinique Stay-Matte Oil-Free Makeup in the shade 29 Sienna.

Step 4: Concealer!  I applied concealer under my eyes, along the bridge of my nose, to the center of my forehead and on my chin. Then "baked" with a translucent powder.  I used  Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer in the shade Biscuit and the Sacha Buttercup Setting Powder.

Benefit Cosmetics Affiliation

Hello World!

I am so proud to announce that Kerin's Korner is an official affiliate of Benefit Cosmetics!!!  It really isn't a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but it means that Benefit saw enough potential in Kerin's Korner being able to make them some money, so they were willing to invest!

Kerin's Top Ten: Chris Brown Songs

Hello World! 

Today is Chris Brown's 28th birthday. Happy Birthday C-Breezy! I have been listening to Chris Brown for over ten years now. I mean his first album came out in 2005. And throughout this period, I think he has blessed us with some gems. There have clearly been some lows in his career, but I'm here for the music, and there's no denying he's a talented artist. So in honor of his birthday, here are my top ten favorite Chris Brown songs!

So it's officially the last week of school! Yay! It's almost over! I have finals next week, and then I'm done!!! And I am already so over school...

And then it's off to New Orleans. I just got an email from the director today saying to expect weekly newsletters leading up to our arrival with "action items".  I'm also supposed to be getting an email from Loyola University this week about housing.
