My first Influencer post.

I'm a little nervous right now, so bare with me.

I recently signed up with a website called Influenster and it seems pretty cool. A bit confusing but if you're on BzzAgent you'll find it to be a bit familiar. In short, it's also a product testing/reviewing website. I'm still getting the hang of it but it seems easy enough. :)

Anywho, I received my first batch of products from Influenster, my Holiday VoxBox. It's a package of assorted products that I get to try and later put in my two cents. The products I received are:

Quaker® Real Medley Oatmeal

NYC New York Color Lipshine

Kiss® Nail Dress


Montagne Jeunesse Face Mask

Goody® Quickstyle Brush

I have to say I'm quite excited to try my goodies! The Goody® brush even caught my husband's attention! Thank you Influenster for the opportunity to try these new products!

Now as of today, I did try out the Quaker® Real Medley Oatmeal, and although I thought it to be a tad too sweet for me, my daughter loved it! So I am considering buying it for her!

BzzAgent Post: Covergirl Blast Flipstick Review


 This is my review for the BzzAgent Covergirl Blastflipstick Campaign.

Okay so when I first started hearing about this campaign I admit I was a tad nervous. I've mentioned before that because of my psoriasis I am very skeptical about what kind of make-up I try if I even bother to wear any. I Googled around for a bit and found no complaints about this particular brand so I decided to heck with it and accepted the opportunity to participate in this campaign.

Different Flipstick Shades 
I received my Bzzkit not too long after and I have to say I was very impressed with the presentation of the package. It came with several coupons as well as three different shades of flipsticks which were: Vixen (pinkish peach and pinkish brown), Stunner (orange coral and metallic golden bronze) and Minx (light golden brown and metallic darker brown). I felt a like a little girl trying on these three different shades trying to find which would look good on me. At first sight I thought Minx would be a good choice for me , I was more than happy to try it and find out. 

It quickly dawned on me that no, Minx was not the shade for me. The color didn't look right on me. So next was Stunner. After some tweaking around with the make-up and blending of the colors, I decided "OK this looks sorta fine on me!"  The orange-y color looked a tad odd though , I will say that but once you mess around with it the turn out is very nice. Made me feel a bit well, fancy . So after playing around it was time to try on the final shade, Vixen. 

The name of it sounds awesome to me. Vixen. I imagine sexed up supermodels sporting this particular shade like it was an extension of their own being. Boy was I in for a bit of a let down. Maybe Hollywood is making me impressionable haha. So I messed around with this shade and like the first one, Minx, it was a bit of a disappointing experience. Or maybe I'm not too good at applying make-up on myself who knows. 

I'm a darker shade of a girl and honestly the shades they sent me, though they are cool felt like they would greatly compliment someone of a lighter appearance. The whole metallic bit kinda stuck out to me and maybe because I'm not a glitter fan but after I removed said make-up I was annoyed that some glitter remained on lips. Hell on my cheeks in one occasion lol. 

So all in all, I will and still and recommending this product to my friends and to some of the moms I know. It is fun to apply, tweak and overall mess around with them in an attempt of finding that perfect shade that would look awesome on me , but unfortunately it just didn't happen. I hated the subtle smell that the lipstick left on my lips. Did anyone else experience that? Even after I was done wearing them and had cleaned myself up, this light plastic-ish smell remained on me. It was a bit of a puzzling annoyance. 

I did go out and wear these products during normal outings to try and test out how long I could last without having to do multiple touch-ups or  having to reapply . So far the longest was two hours. After two hours I found myself needing to touch up my lips so they could look nice again. I'm going to ask friends who also tried this product to see if I can compare notes, I want to know if anyone else thought that their lips smelled funny while wearing Covergirl's Blast Flipsticks.

Holiday Hiatus

I'm taking a break. Dealing with some home issues, but I'll be back! Just give me time!

Tuesday, December 4, 2012

D: oh noes!

Alex won't be working for this entire week! The harvest is over so everyone is off this week and starting next Monday he'll be pruning grapevines. I'm happy he's still working but what I don't like is that he'll pretty much become a commission employee rather than salary like he was before. I'm kinda dreading it. I'm also sad because that means I can't put money in my roadtrip jar :(

We'll see what happens I guess.

My phone has been acting weird lately. It won't let me access Blogger or Facebook. I have to access them through apps which I hate because it means downloading stuff into my crappy phone :/  

I'll tinker with it tonight.

So Thanksgiving was awesome! Worked my butt off that day. I'm proud that everything that was served was made from scratch, nothing was boxed. Quite the feat compared to last year when I was still learning to cook xD

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

It's my birthday!

It's been fun so far! Alex took care of dinner and made a cake too.

I feel spoiled <3

Even Rei behaved today!

I'm still waiting for my BzzKits, I noticed that a couple of people mentioned receiving theirs so I'm assuming I'll get mine later this week? I did get some random freebies though.

Two 4-packs of Airborne Samples
My Parents subscription started
A Thit! Tshirt

And some random coupons.

Turkey Day is in a couple of days, I'm nervous. Tomorrow I'm defrosting the bird so I can let it marinade for an entire day. We also have to go pick up my sister. She'll be staying with us until Saturday I believe.

Bzz bzz!

I joined a new BzzCampaign today!

Earlier this week I had joined the Afrin Stick up for yourself campaign and now today I joined the COVERGIRL BLASTFLIPSTICK campaign.

I'm actually quite happy to try this lipstick because like I've mentioned before, my psoriasis makes me super picky about anything I apply to myself.

So hopefully this makeup will be awesome. Just like my last campaign, expect a blog review sometime in the near future.

And hey, maybe even a picture xD

Monday, November 12, 2012


I was suppose to try out an apple pie recipe I found online over the weekend but forgot! :(

Maybe I'll try to make it this week, I'd really love to make this pie for turkey day though. Speaking of turkey, over the weekend I bought one of the main dishes for Thanksgiving while the store was having a sale. Next weekend I'll buy the rest of my holiday shopping.

Lol a couple of friends were mentioning the other day how housewife-ish I've become through the year. Planning menus, budgeting, trying not to kill rei because she suddenly refused to potty anymore ...

I don't know if that was a compliment or not, but fuck it.

So here's what I'm planning on cooking for this year's Thanksgiving:

Honey glazed ham
Lemon Pepper Chicken
Garlic mashed potatoes
Pumping Pie
Apple Pie
Dinner Rolls

I want to include a second side dish but I can't think of one. Oh well, I'm sure it'll come to me.

Mario Badescu

My sample kit arrived!!!

Their stuff is great I might actually buy their products lol. If you ordered it, be warned it took a month for my package to arrive in the mail.

When it finally came though I won't deny, I was pretty psyched. My package came with 5 different product samples and so far they've been awesome on my skin.

When your package arrives, hopefully you'll be as pleased as I was :)

The holidays are almost here!

Yay! In already planning my Thanksgiving meal and what I'm going to gift this year.

For Christmas, I've been hunting PDF books almost all year long. I plan on gifting books this year, hopefully that doesn't seem too weird.

Man I've been trying to be consistent with Rei and her potty training and I have to say it is hard! It doesn't help that this kid likes to run around naked when I'm not watching. Ugh. The messes I've had to clean! *shudder*

I know I haven't posted any freebies in a while, for that I apologize. Right now though I've been busy with home life and I haven't had the time to freebie hunt as much.

Happy Halloween!

Stay safe everyone, don't KO into a sugar coma!

This year Rei will dress up as a pumpkin :)

Last night before bed Alex and I were carving two pumpkins he was gifted from work. We did it, we gave them faces...

But I'll be the first to admit though, our pumpkins look funky xD Next year we will use freaking stencils!! It was fun cutting them up ans cleaning them from the inside, but man! Cutting faces into them was hard!

Alex is taking REI trick or treating, I'm probably staying home to hand out candy. The landlord is hosting a costume contest and I'm thinking of taking Rei but I'm not too sure. The last time we participated in a community event, everyone just stared and pointed at me. It annoyed the shit out of me.

Not to mention people out here don't control their kids. >_>

No I'm not saying I rock parenting, but at least my kid doesn't go around hitting/shoving for shits and giggles. Anyway, here are some pictures :)

Have a safe Halloween everybody!

Happy day

Yesterday my sample package from Mom Ambassador came in the mail yaaay!!

It was delivered via UPS so at first I was unsure what the heck it was. Alex brought it when he came home from work.

It's awesome. It came with 2 different type of tote bags, a refrigerator magnet, two spearmint flavored organic chapsticks and a stack of free product vouchers.

24 to be exact :D

I'm happy I was selected for this program because quite honestly the holiday season is coming up and I love happy fruit drinks during that time.

The vouchers are for R.W. Knudsen Celebratory Beverages. They come in a variety of flavors including Apple,  Organic Pear,  Kosher Concord Grape, Cranberry, Cherry, Strawberry, Blueberry and Organic Apple! 

Mmm I'm dying to try the cherry and apple flavored drinks!!

I'm still trying to get selected for House Party, but no luck yet :(

Maybe in the future.

F*ck you!!!

Stupid heat go away you're making me get bitchy for no reason at all! My A/C isn't cooling me down for some reason blahhhh!!

Stupid extended summer!

The only good thing out of this is that I finished the Morganville Vampire books and I think I'm unloved with Myrnin, Amelie's vampire friend. Lol, don't get me wrong i still love Dante but for now I'm going to immerse myself and write fan fiction like a smitten 16yr old.

Oh my, that sounds rather droll.

And just so you don't think I'm going off the deep end I included a picture of him :3's a late summer romance xD

Midnight musings

Been writing again. I'm happy that I can pick up a a pen again.

Gotta say though the only reason my muse came back was because of that Mumford & Sons song "I will wait" have you listened to it? It's catchy. As soon as I heard the song a scene played in my head and I went from there.

Man, lately it's been so hot!! Right now I'm sweating my butt off and its already freaking midnight!!! It's October goddamitt I wanna feel like it's fall already!!

The only good thing to this extended summer is that Alex is still harvesting, but still I'd love a breeze every so often!!!!

Did i mention the song makes me think of my situation with Alex?

Saturday, September 29, 2012

It's almost October :3

Yaaaay!!!! Halloween is almost among us!  We've already bought Rei her costume and candy bucket. I'm hoping it looks as cute as the picture in the package or I'm gonna be pissed. I also bought some random decorations to tape on our door lol. I wanna bake cookies and make vampire cupcakes and chocolate cake! Though I know I won't because we'd never eat it all and we don't associate with anyone to share.

So Alex didn't work all week.

Remember how I was bitchy and not too happy about it? Well,  I ate my words. That same night I posted I came down with a horrible fever. Up until yesterday, I was too sick to do anything but lay on bed, drink Powerade and feel like shit. He was a trooper about it, took care of Rei, the apartment and cleaning/cooking. 

It almost feels like Karma wanted to teacher me a lesson. A painful, foggy, annoying lesson.

Oh yeah I joined a book club on that momsite I hang out in. I love it so far!

Free tea samples!

Monday, September 24, 2012

Might be a long week.....

So I just found out that Alex might be off the entire week. That sucks. We're probably going to be late with rent pay by the looks of it....ugh. I can't believe I'm saying this but I wish that the heat would come back. It's been pretty humid out here lately , but with not much sun.

The problem with that is that no heat means that the vineyards might take a little longer to ripen and if there is no ripe fruit, well Alex and his workers have nothing to do. I'm starting to believe that I'm not allowed to be too happy about anything or bad stuff happens. This I take as an example. We'd just our bed and were starting to get ready for Halloween and bam! Suddenly the heat dies down and work slows to an almost stop for him.

Maybe I'll just stick to being passive aggressive bitchy 24/7

Dead Island Riptide trailer

Has anyone seen it? It made me sad ;_;

Why must their game trailers be sad? 

It was such a short trailer though, I was hoping for some gameplay but I guess that won't happen yet so I'll settle for the random art that's around the net. I tried asking on twitter if this game would have local co-op besides the online option but never received a reply. So I'm going to assume that it's still not an option.

I heard that you'll have the option of data transfer into the new game which would of been awesome for me if my data had not been deleted. So if we get the game I'm starting from scratch.

I wonder who the 5th character could be, if I recall at the end of D.I. the group leaves with Charon and that one native girl I forgot her name. Maybe it'll be one of them?

I bought a dress there today for 50¢

Anywho, right now they have an offer for newcomers! If you sign up for a new account You get 10.00 in store credit. Now it's not that big of a deal, but the thing I like about the site is that all their clothing starts at 2.00-2.50 so if you pick a cheaper item you'll still have enough credit leftover to pay the shipping. 

This is they link to the store, like I said you ten bucks after signing on. :D

I included a picture of the dress I bought for Rei, do you like?

Happy Monday peeps.  Climb ladders, bring home the bacon,  etc.

I hope those of you in the East Coast were safe from Issac, I heard Haiti is going through trouble as well.

Is it true that CA experienced 30 quakes over the weekend?  I just heard it on the news, they said that they expect it to keep going into next month.

This weekend was great for me. It was cool, bright with a constant breeze. Taking advantage of the weather Alex suggested that we go to Richgrove. It's a small swap meet, but pretty decent when it comes to merchants and stuff.  I'm happy to say we found a bed that we like too.

All in all we only spent 20.00 out there on some DVDs, handkerchiefs for Alex and socks for Rei and myself :)

The entrance fee was a dollar, free parking.

We had a scary moment though.  A wind blew through the lot and lifted the canopies off th ground! One of those things almost fell on the three of us. Later, Alex was making fun of me because I was oblivious to the tent pole that almost hit me :/

I cannot wait to go back :D

The rest of the day was a nice lazy Sunday. We got some take out, did the laundry and watched our bootlegs. Gotta say, the DKR made me teary. Batman had me geeking out Lol. 

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

Back home

Got back home last night. At least this time we weren't awake until 3 a.m.

This time things went by smoothly, the weekend didn't feel rushed like the week before that. We just hanged out at my mom's, watched movies and ate take out.  It was nice, felt like a mini vacation.

I had Ocha's Thai food while I was out there too. What a disappointment. It was not as good as I remember. Even my mom agreed the food was crap. Not to mention over priced. Blegh.  If I ever go back to LA I'm never eating that food again >_<

I have turtles now! And a Beta fish too :)

Alex bought me some DVD's today. :D

The Hunger Games
The Incredibles
The first Avengers

And some horror multi pack

Good times, good times.

Oh yeah, Reila is jealous of our new pets. She hates it when Alex or I attend to the animals. It's cute, but annoying.

Monday, August 13, 2012

Busy day today

We came home late from Los Angeles.  We didn't get to bed until maybe 3 a.m. I feel bad for Alex since he had to go to work later that morning. The good thing, I guess is that he came home at midday so he only worked six hours. With this heat it's almost impossible to do anything during the day it sucks. I need to go buy meat and fruits but I can't leave the apartment. I'm hoping it blows over eventually.

LA was fun. Sad as hell, but fun. We arrived Saturday night and spent the night at Gretel's. I'm kinda under the impression that Jason doesn't like me, but I'm not hurting over it. Her kid is so big! I hope the clothes I brought him fit.  :)

Spent Sunday with my Mom, visited my Aunts church too.  We took the kids out to the park, it was pleasant just to hang out. We took pictures too. 

I don't want August to end.

I'm not sure I'll be able to handle it to be honest.

My mom gave me a bunch of kitchen things. Appliances, silverware and glass/crystalware.

But not everything was good. Due to the heat, in the one day we were gone bugs got into the apartment. So today I spent the day cleaning, reorganizing, and throwing crap out.  Laundry was done too.

Man, what a long day. I still have plenty to clean tomorrow, so ugh.

Oh yeah, got another freebie in the mail. Press on Acrylic nails

Freebie - Weight loss pills

Pretty straight forward :)

You get pills, brochure, a coupon and a video

Sponsored: Unreal™ Candy

So, as part of my participation in the current BzzAgent campaign I will be doing a blog post :D

I admitt,when I first heard of this candy I was skeptical. I mean, a natural candy bar? My only thought was that perhaps these were sugar free and that was it.

The first thing I noticed was packaging, the bright, vibrant coloring of the logo against the black background really stands out.

Unreal currently has five different candies available. - UN8 (comparable to snickers)
 - UN5 (compareable to Milky Way
 - UN41 (compareable to regular M&M's)
- UN54 (compareable to Peanut M&M's)
 - UN 77 (compareable to Reese's)

I have to admit I was iffy about trying them lol, but I'm happy to say that they do not disappoint. They all taste just like their big brand counterparts, though I will say that the coloring will throw you off at first. Once you get past that though it's all good :D

My favorite UNREAL™ product though, would have to be the peanut butter cups. Those things were awesome! Most definitely my favorite out of all the others. It's so creamy inside tastes like really peanut butter, unlike Reese's cups which have a powdery consistency. So would I buy these again? Yup. Especially the peanut butter cups lol. Everything else was awesome too, but too sweet for me lol.

Late humpday-Update

Today is my anniversary with Alex. I only know this because he woke me up to tell me. Honestly I didn't want to remember, it makes me feel like there's a noose tightening around my neck :/

Lol damn menstrual hormones.

So Sunday I will be in Los Angeles for a few hours to help my mom around her home a bit. She moving out of CA in two weeks. I feel like I truly am stuck in this cheap excuse of a town now. I hate it. So Sunday Imma make the best of it since it'll be the last time I see my siblings probably.

I got more samples in the mail this week :)

1 granola bar
2 Astro Lubricants
1 Lipton Ice Tea packet
6 Poise Pads
1 Wet!  Lubricant

I'm still waiting for my Bzzkit to arrive I'm so excited!


Update :

He brought cake! Everything's better with cake! Lol, the day went by just fine. Now just waiting for Sunday :)

Monday, August 6, 2012

^_^ wow!

This weekend alone I had 120 visitors to my blog! I don't think I've seen that much traffic in such a short period since I stopped doing monthly Raffles. My roleplay blog, Wydow Zamure also was busy too. I'm thinking of updating that blog again too. Not to mention I haven't uploaded ALL of my characters on there yet.

So Alex was here three days last weekend. Annoying on Friday, but after that it was ok. We went to his old workplace and used their wifi so we could download some new games for us :D

I'm a happy girl lol. Especially because I have Spyro and Infamous again.

This coming Sunday, I'm going to be In Los Angeles for a few hours. I wish I could stay longer but I can't I get cabin fever too easily at my mom's.

Rei has been bratty all weekend, it's starting to irk me :/ She entering the Terrible Two's. Ugh,  I'm not looking forward to what else she will start doing.  I'm already giving her time outs and taking toys away. I don't want to spank yet.

Before I forget, here's last months Visiting log:

United States 406
Russia 55
Germany 54
United Kingdom 4
Malaysia 3
South Korea 2
France 1
Lithuania 1
Ukraine 1

Most of the traffic is from Facebook, Google and twitter.

Monday, Monday

I feel like I'm hung over for some reason. It's probably because I only slept five hours. I don't know why, but lately my sleeping habits have been crap. @_@

We bought Rei's bed on Saturday :)

Took all freaking day to assembled, but she has a bed! I was scared that she was gonna fight the bed and throw tantrums over not sleeping in ot but I was wrong. She took to the bed just fine.

She is starting the terrible twos though. She's at this phase where she will throw a screaming fit if you say "No" to her. Annoys the crap outta me :/

So I've started putting her in time outs. When ever she throws a fit the TV is turned off, her toys are taken away and she sits in the bedroom for five minutes. It calms her right down. Other times she falls asleep during time out.

Walmart is the devil!

Not really lol.

Everytime I go it's so tempting to buy stuff I don't need or use. Last weeks shopping spree confirmed that. Now I'm not arguing that I don't have self control, but c'mon!

Speaking of which, this weekend we're buying Reila her bed. Next week, we'll buy the mattress and bedding. I'm putting away small amounts of money in hopes of buying a bed for ourselves in time.

Hopefully by the end of the year we won't be sleeping on the floor.   :D

Lol that sounds sad.

Anywho, hopefully this trip won't result in me breaking bank lmao.

Monday, July 23, 2012


Woke up to birds singing outside of my window. Idk why it just made the morning feel surreal to me.

The weekend flew by in a bit of a blur, I'm not sure if that's a good sign or not.

I went on a shopping spree this weekend. Bought something for everyone, even for the apartment. Reila was the winner of that though. Bought her a new carseat, clothing, shoes and sippy cups. Next week we're buying her a bed.  A real bed, not one of those plastic toddler beds.

Man, this kid is growing up too fast.

Bought a shit ton of Batman last Saturday. Well, not a ton of stuff but I did get 3 movies and 13 episodes of the 90's cartoon.  Next weekend I plan on buying more.

Wednesday, July 18, 2012


I love this app! I can do so much editing with it as if I was on a PC. Since I'm always mobile that is a big deal to me!

I'm really having fun with this app.

This coming Friday I'm going to be in Bako, gonna go to Walmart. We've been talking about getting REI a new carseat so come Friday we might upgrade.

Here's some of the pics I edited today. One is of Wydow, the other a collage of Rei.

T-Mobile Spin

Spin once a day for a chance to win assorted Samsung electronics or Android plushies. No sign up or purchase necessary to spin.

It's 4:30 a.m.

And Reila is wide awake.

I feel like crying, I'm so sleepy but there she is watching Cash Cab. Alex is up too, loading the dishwasher and about to get ready for work. He's eating takeout today, I really don't feel like cooking for his lunch today.

I've been downloading e-books lately. Here's what I have so far:

The 50 Shades of Grey trilogy
The Hunger Game trilogy

This heat is killing me!

I finally went grocery shopping because I was really low on food. As much as we needed to go I wish we hadn't, Rei has a heat rash now because of it. The most annoying part is that we were only out for two hours, in the dark, after the sun had set.

It was still hot enough to give Rei a rash and leave me with a migraine.

Right now, our apt is at 81° and it's not even seven yet! I just want it to end already.

Free Nutrition Bar

Free ZonePerfect Bar - Free Perfectly Simple Nutrition Bar – Sign Me Up

Limit 3 per household. I already signed up for mine

I cried today

Rei made me cry today she said her first sentence.

"Hi mommy."

We were playing house and I handed her the phone Gretel gave her. She took it and said "Hi mommy" she said it 3 more times before she giggled and ran away from me.

Aww, I don't want her to grow up.

;_; Rei is becoming a big girl.


I'm thinking of disabling my Facebook. I'm starting to loose interest in it. Esp, since I'm spending all of my time on CM.

Stupid Fb glitched on me and everytime I updated my status I was messaging random people instead.

It was weird.

Happy 4th of July!

We went to go see fireworks last night! I'm happy to say Rei did not freak out :)

Alex went back to  last week. This week the harvest started, right now he's doing 9 hour shifts I think. I kinda hate the harvest season though. He comes home smelly and dusty. It annoys the crap out of me :/

On the plus side, he brought fresh grapes home. The vine was still bright green. OMG! I think those are the best grapes I've had so far. They were crunchy, sweet and seedless.

The bad part?

They are gone!

Rei ate all 3 batches :(

I hope he brings more soon. Mmm, sweet crunchy goodness :)

Old times :D

Anime Expo 2005 - Funny Pictures and photos Page 2 of 2

I went home with so much swag that weekened :3

Good memories for me lol

Dreaming of Neverland

"I Dreamt I was in Strafe with Frank last night. The town was under attack by Barbatos and Azazel. There were screams everywhere and it almost looked like it was raining fire. The sky was red, buildings were burning to the ground. It took me awhile to realize I was Violette, I was carrying her guns they felt foreing, cold and clumsy in my hands.

I didn't fire them until a legionic bit my calf, screaming in pain I yelled for Frank who in turned screamed that I use my guns before I was eaten alive. At first I was beating its head with the butt of Hemera, accidentally setting it off. Thinking I was going to die I felt myself ready to cry as I finally gethered the courage to shoot the legion in the head.

Hot black liquid splattered on my leg, torso and face. Tasting it gave an adrenaline rush. Suddenly I found myself running faster, becoming stronger and craving legionic blood. I was able to keep up with Frank now, together we were slaying every  demon in sight.

We were killing in synchronization, almost as dancing. Between the taste of blood, the adrenaline and the destruction of Violette's town I felt alive."

Any thoughts? I've been writing one-shots for a couple of days now and this was a dream of Fuyoko's.

Resident Evil 6 : Leon Gameplay

Click me!

Pure awesomeness :D

How to get Freebies

Since I started mentioning how I've been getting free stuff in the mail, a couple of you have been spamming my Yahoo! wanting to know what I do or what are the requirements for receiving any items.

It's actually quite simple :)

1. Check Walmart and go to the "Free Samples" section. Usually all you have to do is provide an address and a name and that is it. Rarely, they will ask you demographic information about yourself; I.E. Age, Sex and maybe Ethnicity.

Target also gives away free samples of products. Even better, if you keep up with Target promotions they give away boxes of assorted products rather than one at a time :)

2. Bzzagent is a consumer review website. I signed up and through it I have been able to test and keep small items so far (razors, food etc.). I have to warn you, you need to be consistent with this site but I found it to be worth it. They have a variety of things to try out but you test them out through invites, meaning you are invited to try out so-and-so item in exchange for you to write a review or post a photo of you using the items. It's a fun site, for me espeically since I love the whole idea of promoting and using my name to get things out there and the not. Like I said, you can get some fun stuff through here, but you need to be consistent. If you're looking for freebies without a commitment, thi is not the site for you. Sorry.

3. Sample Freak is a coupon/freebie website. You can scan and skim through it's contents but almost always there is something for everyone.

4. PG Everyday is another coupon/freebie site. You have to sign up for this website though.

Like I said, it's pretty easy to get free stuff. The thing is you need to have the time and the patience to look around, email people or Facebook them. On my personal Fb I have alot of companies on there because usually liking them and emailing them, telling them how great their products are is enough for companies to want to send you a token of their appriciation.

It's summertime ;D


It's been two weeks and Alex still hasn't been able to go back to work because of the the heat. Triple digits. It's been triple-freaking-digits this entire time.

Ugh. Oh well, at least our bills are covered so we aren't hurting for money.

That feels good to say. "We aren't hurting for money."

Vent over.

Monday, June 18, 2012


They came in the mail today, yay!

They were free from Sneakpeek as a bonus for signing up with them. I'm not entirely sure, but when you create a new account with them, you get $10.00 dollars in credit and I was awarded free shipping for linking my FB with them. The site does sell some pretty things, and with my discount alot of the stuff is coming out to under $20.00

They award you badges when you shop and depending what you buy they have a different effect on your buy. Whether it's a discount or free shipping I think you'll be pleased with the site :)

Original price for these was $50.00

Friday, June 15, 2012


It's Friday! Two more days before.he goes back to work, yaaaaay!!

Lol, I feel bad. This entire week he has been trying to spend time with me and I keep ignoring him. I made him rent movies almost everyday so we wouldn't have to really interact. I think he finally got the hint. He stopped asking for hugs and kisses.

xD lol being on my monthly suck. Makes me bitchy. It doesn't help that its been triple digit weather. Ugh, I DO NOT look forward to summer.


I scrapped Fuyo's story. Her bio is still the same, mostly. The only thing is that Greed is going to be in the story now, not as the enemy but she is the reason Fuyo has powers. As well as others like her. In her story, the earth was struck by a violent meteor shower. Many perish, but not all. Among these survivors there are a few that through heavy emotional distress opened up their psyche which led to them developing powers.

Fuyoko is Pyrokenetic. Instead of being a Pyromancer and relying on magik, she'll use her mind.

She'll be hunted down by others like her who grow stronger after each kill.

Still a work in progress, but I have a general idea.

Monday, June 11, 2012


Alex is off for this week.

On the plus side though, he is still getting a paycheck this week so yay for that. We rented some movies yesterday, Due Date and some low budget flick that I can't remember what it's called. Went out to Delano and did our laundry :x

I didn't want to go out it was too hot lol.

I love the love seat, it's comfy and all three of us fit in it. The only problem is that Rei gets greedy and tries to kick everyone off of it so she can lay down by herself. Greedy little baby xD

All in all, the weekend was a little slow, but great. I'm wondering how this week will be since he's gonna most likely be home with us. He goes back to work next Tuesday I think I'm not too sure. I just know he goes back next week. I think he said they're spraying the vegetation this week and that's why everyone is excused, but once he goes back he'll be there all day practically since the harvest will start as soon as they come back to work next week.

I'm just happy he's being productive again. I think the whole unemployment thing was driving up the wall :/


Oh yeah, I had a pretty vivid nightmare the other night. I think on Friday or Saturday, I'm not too sure now.

Remember when I was pregnant I use to talk about how I felt like I was being stalked, dream-wise? How I use to dream with some grey creature that would follow me in my dreams and started making me paranoid?

Any who I dreamt with whatever that thing is again. In my dream, I was staying with an older lady, Rei was with me but Alex was working. I just remember he wasn't present because of work. Anyways, this lady would tell of how her home use to be haunted and how the entities that resided there would physically harm her and such.

Well long story short, I started seeing that "thing" soon after. At first he appeared in a bathroom mirror. He'd appear to me in any reflective surface, always standing right behind me . Well one night, I was going to bed and the "thing" was laying in bed with Rei, it's arms wrapped around her. I turned on the light, it vanished, but then the light bulb exploded.

The lady I was staying with, picked up on what was happening and offered to do a cleansing for Rei and myself. I accepted and through the cleansing shit got worse. It appeared to the both of us and spoke to me. I don't remember what it said, all I recall is that it scared me speechless. It tried to touch me and I felt its appendages over mine. Like you could feel the body heat it gave off.

Everything after that is a blur. The last thing I recall is that we were in bed. Rei and I were laying down, and Alex was about to get into bed with us. He walked into the room and climbed into bed. I felt the covers being pulled off of me and I assumed it was Alex. When I opened my eyes, Alex was asleep. I felt someone tugging on me. Behind me, someone was laying behind. I could hear breathing and felt the mattress move. Not wanting to turn around, I panicked and tried to wake Alex. When he did wake up he looked over to me, his eyes went wide as he jumped off the bed and tried to turn the light to the room on.

The feeling in the room was horrible. There was this thick presence there. I never turned to see exactly what was behind me I was too scared, but somehow I knew. I knew it was that thing.

Yes, I know I have an active imagination. But that shit was scary. If I could draw a picture of what I saw, I would.

We bought a loveseat!

It's a sofa bed too :D
At first Alex was bitchy that he didn't want it, that it wasn't worth the price, he wanted to use the money for something else, blah blah blah.
>:D I still got my couch despite the bitching.
It was on sale too, for $40.00! I sure as hell didn't want to pass the opportunity up. Where are you gonna find a new sofa bed/couch for that price again?
Any who, we bought it. Hauled it home and the hard part was dragging that fucker inside and up a flight of stairs. Took two fucking hours! And the worst part, we dropped it and broke one of the feet :p
I fixed it, so its OK. So yay.

She promptly proclaimed it as hers, lol

Dead Island 2

Wednesday, June 6, 2012

Phew! ^_^;;

My fingers are numb and they feel prickly as I type lol. I just spent the last hour and a half scrubbing all of the walls and baseboards.

Man, my fingers hurt!

I still need to mop the kitchen and bathroom and the stove. I've been up since 5 a.m. and it feels like I've done nothing >_<;

Rei has been following me around all day and it doesn't help that she keeps messing up the living room. I mean I know our apartment isn't too big but still!

Ahhhh, my fingers.

Oh wanna know something cute? Today, Rei discovered Sesame Street. She was so into that I was able to change her diaper, clothes and feed her without her making eye contact with me. Right now she's still glued to the t.v. watching Elmo's World.

Bio- Grew up in a upper middle class home, spoiled, intelligent, with a soft spot for the wrong crowds. Towards her late teens she fell in with a bad crowd, went to jail when her 'friends' used her as a scapegoat for their illegal activities. Served her sentence of three year while her friends enjoyed their freedom.

Once outside again she distanced herself from her previous friends, and with the help of her family she became a ballet instructor.

It was her former friends that one night attempted to rob her and beat her into a coma when she tried to fight back.

While in her coma, a meteor shower struck several parts of the world destroying and killing many. What was unknown to everyone was that the meteors carried high levels of radiation poisoning and killing people all over the world.
In her dreams, Fuyoko meets a redhead who tells her she can grant any wish she desires.  Fuyoko asks for vengeance, and the redhead agrees, telling her that she will meet many others like her. When
Fuyoko asks what she means by that the redhead simply answers "You all have this ability, but sometimes you need a push"

Fuyoko awakens, surrounded by the chaos of the hospital where many are succumbing to radiation poisoning. 

Her first encounter with her new powers was accidental, she made a driver burst into flames when he honked at her. Angrily, she yelled at him but before she could finish her sentence he burst into flames, scaring her into hiding out in a shanty part of her town.
Confused, she tried piecing together what had happened ealier that day which led to her testing her new 'abilities' on stray dogs. After several tries, she finally begins to understand that her power is fueled by emotion but controlled by her mind. 

UPDATE: Still working on her but I wanted to clarify that GREED is the one that grabted her and others the powers. The meteor shower is a ruse.

New Character

I think I finally have some idea for my new OC. Since I can't think of a proper name Fuyoko is what I've been calling her. I found a picture online and it stuck with me so I'm going to use it as a physical reference for her. If only I knew what anime the picture is from though.

Served her sentence while her once friends enjoyed their freedom. Once outside again she tried to distance herself from them which resulted in her getting beat to the point of needing hospitilization.

It was thought she would not wake from her drug induced coma when the meteor shower happened and granted several people across the globe 'supernatural' abilities. While others around her became sick with signs of radiation poisoning, Fuyoko awoke fully healed.

In the midst of the chaos at the hospital she was able to leave and make her way home, unaware of any changes she was undergoing at the moment.

Confused, she tried piecing together what had happened ealier that day which led to her testing her new 'abilities' on stray dogs.


That's all I have for now, still a work in progress :)

It's almost here...

Not really, but you know what I mean. I'm sad because I haven't found reason to warm up to it yet. With every other DMC I was already writing and drawing fanfics, and dreaming up ways to incorporate the new game into Wydow's storyline.

I'm just not feeling it. Maybe when the game is out I'll change my mind about it.

Btw, has anyone seen the new addition, Kat? From what little was released 'bout her, she's a medium who can see Limbo and the demons or something like that. I feel like they rebooted Lucia into this game for some reason.

This girl looks like Sheva from RE5 but with the wardrobe of Kai from Heavenly Sword. Am I wrong?

I'm sad I can't warm up to new Dante :(

Lol I'm loving todays weather! I have all my windows and blinds open so it bright and breezy in our home.

I woke up in a good mood today lol

I finally logged into my old DA account, it took forever to get up to date on all of my notifications! But I was able to update my account and my DA ID as well.

Yesterday I had inspection come to the apt as part of renewing our lease. We passed so now I just have to wait for corporate to do a walk through and we're good to go.

I can't  believe it's been a year since we moved in here, it sure does NOT feel like it! I feel blessed though, the staff knows us and work with us whenever we have needed it.

Alex switched jobs today. He's not at the dairy farm anymore his temp was up. He's not home though he went to work for HR Agriculture. He's an assistant manager but his job is to supervise the people in the fields. Better than picking fruit for minimum wage IMO.  They started him out with nine hour days but I haven't found out what his wage is yet.

Messing with Google

Have you ever checked out Google Dashboard? Did it weird you out knowing how much info Google has collected just on you?

It made me stop and retrace my cyber footprints. It also helped me find websites where people have created accounts under my name and interacted with others while posing as me. Weird, weird, weird.

I also found audio clips Google has of my voice. Yup, my voice. Atleast I know not to plan a crime with my phone lol

Honestly it was fun going through YEARS of data I have online. I found my very first blog post too. You know how  I bitch that I hate how kids 'txt speak' or DoThIsMaKiNgThInGsHaRdToReAd?

Looks like I use to type like that too xD

You should check out Dashboard though. You can even set up email alerts to notify you whenever someone Google's you, or in my case Wydow.

Also I learned that Blogger isn't too far off when it comes to data gathering. I can see your country, what link brought you here, what browser you use or what words you used to search for my blog on Google :)

I feel like a creepy spy or something

Monday, May 14, 2012


Yesterday sucked. I came down with a fever that made me lethargic and whiny all day. My body temp wouldn't go down from 102° and I had a bad case of the chills. It hurt to eat, open my eyes or just do anything period.

I don't think I ate anything, I can't remember lol

It didn't help that Rei was fussy too. Not that she was sick, more like she refused to let me lay down.

Puppy Sitting

Last night we took in a puppy! She's three weeks old, her breed is Poodle. She's the same size Osa was when we first brought her home, it made me nostalgic for a bit.

Rei is inlove with it, which I'm relieved for honestly. Last night she was asleep when the puppy was brought so today in the morning I was anxious thinking the dog would scare her. As soon as she noticed the pup she became excited and played with it. Now everytime she sees it, she wants to pet it.

It made us laugh that the dog is afraid of Rei. 

The puppy went home not too long ago, Rei didn't want to see it go I think. She followed Alex out of the apartment when he left. It was both cute and sad.

Even though the puppy didn't stay with us for long it kinda made me feel like I was caring for a second baby. Weird, but that's how I felt.

Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mothers Day everyone! Here are some pics of Rei in a dress for you :D

I'm going grocery shopping, I'm excited lol. We might actually eat beef tonight! Lmao that makes me sound poor, doesn't it? Screw it.

Oh and yes, I know the holiday is celebrated on the 13th, but my family has always celebrated Mother's Day on the 10th

Meet my penpal

Her name's Risa, 23 and a dental assistant. We've been talking for a couple of months now. I like her, she seems very down to earth.

Man, it was hot today! Alex didn't work today so we spent the day doing errands out in Delano. We also stopped by Radioshack since Alex is looking into switching our phone service to Virging Mobile. I gotta say, I love the HTC Wildfire and Virgin has it. Maybe switching over won't be so bad lol.

I applied for foodstamps today. It's embarassing, but not enough where I want my kid to starve. If approved that's one less bill for now. Don't get me wrong I do plan on not staying too long on it but for now, I need and welcome the help. So even if I get bashed by others for it, fuck it. I'm doing what I can to feed my kid.

Monday, May 7, 2012

Tired and feeling blah

I only slept a couple of hours last night. Rei threw up in her sleep, scared the hell out of me. I couldn't sleep afterwards I was afraid she might choke on her vomit.

The night felt like it wouldn't end!

Right now I'm sanitizing all of her toys and all of her bottles too. When Alex gets home he's going to wash all the blankets she's puked on.

Poor Rei. I hope she gets better soon

Friday, May 4, 2012

Butt Paste

It smells a lot better than I thought it would. Bought some to help with Rei's butt rash I don't know if I used it  wrong or something but it didn't do anything. If anything anything it got worse. So I started washing her butt after every diaper change and sprinkled baby powder instead.

Worked like a charm. Her rash vanished like it never happened. Now I'm annoyed I lost $7.00 buying Butt Paste. >_<

I received a UPS package the other day. Wanna guess what was in it? Let me tell you anyway: Spermicide and VFC. It had a letter from so-and-so company thanking me for promoting them and as a personal thanks they were sending me a package of popular items for me to try out, in hopes of me to keep promoting them.

I lol'd. I haven't done anything for this company in six months. Thank you for the swag though! I'll just put it in the box of other stuff that I get for free. Now that I think about it I should try to score free diaper  vouchers from H.

On the plus side I guess I'm well stocked for the day I feel ready to have sex again. xD

I like ordering catalogs from said company though. They have pretty clothes that are easy to draw.

Android App

I just found the Android App for Blogger. Infact, I'm using it right now :)

Really, really easy to use.

Woke up around 2am to fix Alex's lunch for work. I wasn't sure what to make so I made him egg & chorizo tacos and a container of honeydew melon. I wish he'd get paid already though, we're running out of food and milk for Rei. Times like this I'm glad I have a canned food stash. It's not the healthiest, but I'm glad we have something to fall back on. I do miss eating meat though :/

Alex brought up yesterday that he ran into his Aunts. He wants me to go over and meet them, I said no. He became annoyed and tried going on about it even though he knows I have no intention to meet more people from his family. So to hell with that.

Oh yeah, has anyone actually gone through all of the services Google offers? I was going through some of them today and man... I can't wait to get on a PC.

Wednesday, May 2, 2012


So how's life on the other side of the screen? I've been keeping busy, mostly with Rei. Ever since she learned how to open closed doors I've had my work cut out for me.

The weather has been ok lately, but I still refuse to go out. The skin on my neck healed almost completely, but I really don't want to risk it KWIM?

Alex has been working (yay), and I must say his mood has improved alot. I think being inactive was starting to get to him and honestly I don't blame him one bit. I look forward to a full time job, not just on-call or odd jobs.

Have you heard of streamzoo? It's an Android app, like Instagram. Pretty straightforward and very user friendly. Incase you do have it, add me. Like always I'm Wydow.

So I finally heard from the people at Xanga. They offered apologies and said I was free to rebuild my old site. F*ck that. I still don't understand what I did wrong there, but I'm not going back.


I live! I'm still trying to figuire the settings and kinks outta this site. So I was getting ready to give into Yola when I remembered that Google powered Blogger, yay for me! That meant I only had kinks to straighten out and presto! My new (hopefully) blog home! Yay for being lazy :D Xanga, you can suck it. I still want to know who the fudge reported me >:/
