Komi the expert character



You know where im going with this.
To start off this post I will say I DON'T OWN ANY OF THE (Komi xi) PICTURES. I also think Komi xi as a Anime character not human. If you think she is real well let me show you why she is not. No I am not saying dont take my opinion , this one is one of those opinions that is needed to be shoved down your throat. Dont be blind and let your fantasies take over you. But if you know its a fantasy and not related to the same fantasy of a celebrity on a magazine that is overly photoshopped to perfection , but to the level of a Anime character in between a person that is cosplaying, then enjoy an just nod your head.

First go search on Xiaxues guide to life videos and check out her "how to photoshop" one and two. Be amazed and see what you can do and not track on PS and then come back here.
Note on that tool that can sharpen, liquefy and make your eyes bigger.


This is one of her ealier stages of PS.

Im a wedge girl





I dont like heels; ever since I was a tom boy I would wear the spice girls platforms or wedges.
So you are not going to see me walking around New York with heels.

My reasons
YOU GET TO RUN IN THEM!!!!!BETTER!!!
I want these

This is a city and I walk everywhere so I get my exercise and getting my heels stuck in a floor gate or in a pot hole is not funny, cute, or sexy. The worst is less balance and pain is more on your feet. Dont forget those pebbles in central park.

Am I lazy?
Damn straight. I don't give a damn about pain equals beauty. That was done with and over after I gave up braids; siting for more than 4 hours getting my head tight and knotted. No way not again (im not saying never). I want to be free and at least close to comfortable. Comfort first or at least most of the time then everything after. Which is why i'm on wigs; no more salon just wait for the mail and *TING* your done
Hells no on this one


YOU STILL LOOK TALL AND SEXY
Why go for the tiny stick when you can get the same but more of the fun effect with wedges. Actually you look more playful; that is what im going for although I have a serious looking face. No i'm serious I get allot of guys telling me to smile; which I cant refuse cause I do so when shy or nervous. Too bad that gets them more excited to talk to me. Oh well what are you going to do

It looks good...but nope

YOU STILL LOOK LIKE A MODEL
Well I get that without the wedges *not tall but appear* and I am sure allot of girls get that on the street or from a person you are buying from. Are you a model question don't come by only when your in heels. Well it gets you closer now with wedges.....well if you do get asked that. I have pretty internet friends I am sure they get asked that allot. Hopefully they don't giggle like a school girl......what i'm guilty of. Why, why do I do that; I hate doing that Choco gal blush haha.

WHERE CAN I GET YOU <3

HEELS ARE FOR SEXY I'M SURE

So are wedges and yet it is more playful. I'm talking for walking around the city , sitting in parks. This is what I do all the time. That and shopping for things (not much of clothes). I personally don't need heels unless for a wedding or if I feel to out of the blue.


BONUS
I also adore back packs; the one shoulder thing hurts. Another comfort over pain here. I will pick a back pack over a purse in a second. I want more designer looking one but hey girls love the purse. Its not like I am the type to buy the 100$ and over bag...that is right, my limit for any fashion item is 100$ (and that is for an outfit), not even my shoes are over 50$ unless it will last long like boots. Im a cheapo, a cheapo that believe in the fact that you can look good cheap without looking cheap from make up to clothes. I do spurge on art and food. And do not get me going on technology.

Art time.

I Finished this last week and the commissioner love it which I am extremely happy for. She didn't want a background but I do. I do not know what to put there and backgrounds is one of my weak points not because I cant draw it but because since I put so much effort on the characters features and posing also hair especially fabric, which I did take awhile to do and color (the figuring out of it), I forget what I want for the background or never really practice on it. That is my next stop

In other news *ha* I am doing a series of cards for the sailor scouts, all nine of them and luna an if so the other felines to make it up for one deck. This is one of the pictures that is denied for not being anime. Why ? Well im on that and looking for answers, but that can be another story.Not finished with the card layout


Here is my art book collection

These are my fave out of all , I may have like 5 more but didnt bother to show them.
#5 I just got today. Im just like my art , anime with a dash of realistic. My favorites here are (If I can choose ) 4, 5, 6, 13, 18. Five books is enough I suppose

Also on the Udoli video. I don't think I will upload it. I dont feel it cause my hair is not long enough for me. Im one of those, those who is self conscious about my fro. Soon thou soon ill let go

Im not vegan but I act like one


Well not vegan in general but the route I take is always in a natural way.
Like makeup, SPF and oils.

Now as an African American I am prone to skin discoloration around my chin , armpits* I think is the worst* and eyes. I search long and *ahem*....long to find something that would get rid of it naturally...or get rid of most. I have became an natural addict for the past 2 years. It just started growing on me , and thats because of my hair journey.

So do that equal to one step is enough to change the future steps?
I think its a nice push for example , I don't like to exercise but if I just start with the legs and get good at it and used to it. I can start with the stomach next, arms, and then the whole body. It do get easy cause of the steps I take. Back to the vitamins and oils.

I have ordered for luckyvitamin.com
When they shipped it Monday I have gotten it Thursday which is today. Very good site well organized and cheap shipping around the New York area. I think around 5$

Now this is not a review but a preview. Im going to test these and use these for the next three months. This is to avoid makeup products that is harmful to my health and this will help in saving money. Like you know when a moisturizer claim to be perfect and always contain something like "infused with olive oil , jojoba oil , grapeseed oil" so.....why dont you just buy those for half the price? AND skip the chemicals.

My skin = Normal.
Only have problems on the menstrual days
My skin do not like green tea rubbed on its face. It could be the company or the tea itself. Ill just never do that again Im left with a scar.


Badger-Sunblock Lip Water Resistant 15 SPF
0.15 oz

Cost = 2.53$
On SPF its fairly safe
Here is where I rate my SPF products
http://www.ewg.org/2010sunscreen/finding-the-best-sunscreens/265275/Badger-SPF--Sunscreen-Lip-Balm-Unscented/

1-7
1 best 7 worst and harmful
This is rated a 2

It leaves a white cast. Not good for my colored lips. Ill rub a bit in under my usual lip balm when out only. The smell is a bit cocoa butter coconut
Eco-friendly and all natural


Now Foods - E-oil double strenth d-alpha tocopherol 32000 IU

1 oz. - 5.94$
(non synthetic that is important )
"Synthetic vitamin E derived from petroleum products"
that means it can clog your pores and the oil is not pure natural vitamin oil And that is what I wanted, usually they are expensive, this is the cheapest so far.
What I bought it for? To take away my scars and uneven skin tone.
When I get an even skin tone, you know what that means , less makeup and layering of products more hydration and more money. Do not forget you can take it as a daily supplement to clean you from the inside out.
Texture is sticky , but mix it with another oil like olive oil and it will smooth out.
I suggest letting it soak in before doing anything else , which would take some time. but that is worth it. Your skin will feel so damn soft , it is not even raining out side........yeah.

The taste? Pretty normal and vitamin-y, oily of course, not sour or bitter just natural.

I trust the Now Foods company they are awesome with 100% natural products


Avocado oil MIXED with jojoba oil
*mixed it myself and didn't buy form the site but awhile ago*
jojoba oil is my acne trickery. Read up on it
Avocado Oil - elasticity and hydration
*side note coconut oil and grapeseed oil is for makeup removal and quick bath moisturizer.
I use them when still wet out the tub and I stopped for some reason using the oils. Im back on them now*


Nubian Heritage - shea butter Infused with black soap extract, oats & Aloe

4 oz. - 8.51$
dude this smells so damn good oh my goodness.
It smelled so good on my neck (when I tested it) all day.

What am I using this for?
Mostly the Shea butter. This product is 98% organic , that is enough percentage for me.
I have stretch marks and with this and vitamin e oil I cant loose right? Actually it have vitamin e oil. "Reducing acne (especially in combination with African Black Soap)" and I dont have acne but prevention is key yes. Its great for healing as well.Very hard texture yet creamy but it can melt (wait till summer)
Like I said the smell is perfume-ish but like a butter smell, you can smell the Shea in it and the black soap, but more like it have been hyped up

This is my priced piece
DeVita - Natural skin care Solar body block 30 SF
6oz. -17.15$ *a steal cause everywhere I look for it is 20 up)

Rated 1 on the scale
http://www.ewg.org/2010sunscreen/finding-the-best-sunscreens/116119/Devita-International-Daily-Solar-Protective-Moisturizer/
one of the best sunscreen moisturizers Its also Vegan cant beat that. No smell (maybe because im still smelling my shea butter)
goes on smooth and when left soak in nicely
I love it already

So ill take pictures of my stitches scars, my stupid pimple scar , my stretch marks and will not go pass that to my arm pits, that you may see the after if it goes well.

To clean my face im using backing soda just to let you know.
