Going Back To Blonde #1

Hey Everyone!
Lately I been wanting to switch up my hair color because it was getting pretty dull and my roots are naturally blonde so it was starting to show. My hair color now was a Red-ish brown color. I thought about it for a while and decided to go back to my natural hair color. Now I know since my hair is darker that it is going to be a lot of work to get it to go back blonde but I wanted to try. I wanted to try on my own instead of in a salon since last time I told them to dye my hair blonde they bleached it and it was really bad.
This was when I first dyed it to a Darker brown color but it turned out more black than anything else. Though over time it started to lighten up to a red-ish brown color.

I bought this to see how much it would lighten my hair up. This is my First Step to lighting my hair back to Blonde. This color is a Dark Golden Blonde.

This is after I dyed my hair. You can tell at the top of my hair it lightened it a lot.

This is another look at my hair after it was Dyed. You can tell it lighten my hair good. By dying my hair it added some color highlights and it's not so dull anymore.

So this is my first step into getting my hair back to blonde. The next step is buying shampoo and conditioner that has were it lightens the hair gradually. Also to buy a Lightened Spray like Sun In to help bring out the blonde tones in my hair.

This is what I wanna buy and use to see if it will lighten my hair to a natural blonde color without using too much dyes.

This is a Lightening Spray, It gradually lightens your hair.

So I really hope this works out because I just don't wanna go to a Salon. If you have any ideas on getting my hair to gradually go back blonde without bleaching it please let me know down below. I will do more post on my hair after I buy these products and have used them for a couple of weeks.

April Favorites:2012

Hey Everyone, It's time for April Favorites since April is almost over. I can't believe how fast these months are going by so quickly. I have 2 more weeks of this semester of college and I am so glad! Anyways here is what I been loving for the Month of April.

Beauty and Fashion Favorites:

1. CoverGirl trublend Foundation in #1 Ivory 405
I been using this a lot lately. Usually I don't wear Foundation because it's heavy, too much oil on my skin and always makes me look orange but this Product is really good. It doesn't make my face look orange at all. I am just really pale so it's hard to find foundations that don't make me look orange. It actually works well to blend in with your natural skin tone. The only thing I wish this had was Sunscreen with SPF in it.

2. Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Rose Petal
This has been in my Favorites for a while now. I just love it! I am really pale so this puts a natural color on my face. It makes me look glowing in some way. The color is very natural and is not to bright unless you keep putting more product on your cheeks. It is very Light weight and blendable.

3. NYC Kohl Eyeliner Pencil in White
I been using a White eyeliner a lot this month. I am just needing something to brighten my eyes up. This really helps!

4. CoverGirl Natureluxe Gloss Balm in Coral
I have been really loving these Gloss Balms lately. They are very smooth on your lips and has SPF 15. The color I been using on my Lips this month is Coral.

5. Avon Speed Dry Nail Enamel in Mambo Melon
I really Love this Color! I been wearing this all month and it stays for so long. The color is very pretty and perfect for spring.

6. Clearasil Daily Clear Daily Pore Cleansing Pads
This really helps my face because I haven't had much breakouts with using this. It is a little oily though so just a warning on that but I still love this product.

7. Clean and Clear Morning Burst Skin Brightening Facial Scrub
I really love this product and it smells so good! It helps clean my face from dirt and it is oil free which is good for me because my face is oily. Also it helps wake me up in the morning because I am not a morning person at all.

Non-Beauty Favorites:

1. Favorite Movie- Hunger Games
I Love this Movie!!! I am reading the book now and I am just obsessed with this.

2. Favorite TV Show- Vampire Diaries
I love this Show! I wish I was Elena because I would date Damon ;)

3. Favorite Celebrity Crush- Ryan Reynolds
Ryan was in my What I been loving post. He is just so sexy!

4. Favorite Phone App- Instagram
I am pretty sure everyone knows what Instagram is now. I have it on my Android now and I love it! You can follow me on there if you want it's: ccshrum.

5. Favorite Songs- Honestly by Hot Chelle Rae, Boyfriend by Justin Bieber, What makes you beautiful by One Direction.

*I Hope you had a great Month of April. Hope May goes great for everyone. I know I will enjoy May because I have no school coming up for almost 3 months! I am excited. So anyways have a good day or good night and I hoped that you enjoyed this!*

Update on Health:April 2012

Hey Everyone!
This month hasn't be so bad but I have been having crazy pain in my left leg and in my back. I can't bend down without my back hurting. It's in my lower back. All this month I been having a lot of Doctor appointments because my Vitamin D is still low and the doctor doesn't know why because my Vitamin D should be higher for my age but it's not. The doctor told me that I need to get more out in the sun because you should know that the sun has Vitamin D in it. So Lately I been just sitting outside just enjoying the breeze that we been having lately in Texas and I been reading the Hunger Games which I am going to go see the movie tomorrow for my Birthday!
Anyways the doctor has been doing a lot of blood work on me to try and figure out what has been going on with me. I am not afraid of needles they really don't bother me that much but I hate seeing blood though. My last appointment for this month was today which he did more blood work to re-check my Vitamin D level and he did a X-ray on my lower back and my left leg. The doctor has been doing a lot of research on my symptoms because he doesn't understand why my Vitamins are so low at my age and why I am having pains in my back and leg. Hopefully the doctor will figure it out because I hate not knowing what it is.

So this is just a short update on how my health been for this month.

My First Tattoo!!!

Hey Everyone!
I got some exciting news, today I got my first tattoo.
I was a little nervous at first but I been wanting this tattoo for a couple of years now.
My view about Tattoo's is that I like them and that I will put them on my body because they have a certain meaning to me. Plus I grew up around tattoo's because my dad has a lot and my boyfriend has tattoo's too.
It's the Chinese Symbol of Love and it says "Love Gives Me Strength" I decided to get this because that quote is what I live by now. Without love from my family, friends and boyfriend I would have no strength to stay strong and still fight. I got it with Blue coloring because the blue represents the awareness for IC which is for my Bladder Disease. I got this done at Masterminds Ink it's in Texas and my Mom cousin open his own shop. This tattoo only costed me about $50.00 which isn't bad since coloring does cost more. When He first started doing it, it didn't hurt so bad as I thought it would. Now I got this tattoo on the back of my Left Shoulder. It was kinda irritated after a while because some parts he kept going over and it just really irritated the skin but other wise I did pretty good. I just sat there and chatted with him. My mom came with me because she always supports me and just wanted to be there for me. At first I was just gonna leave it black but He asked if I wanted a little color and I told him about how Blue represents IC and he suggested that he can put blue into it. It really turned out great! I didn't bleed at all really and there wasn't much swelling as I thought it would be. Now after it was all done and covered up with a bandage, there was a little pain. It felt mostly like a sunburn effect. I really love my tattoo and glad I finally got it done. This was a present from me for my 20th birthday. I thought this would be a perfect gift for me to finally have. I know when I look at this tattoo that I will be reminded of the people that love and support me and realize thats what gives me the strength to stay strong and to not give up.

*What do You think of this Tattoo? Also just wanna say that this is what I wanted and that I love this Tattoo *

Book Review: A Walk To Remember

Another book review is here for ya'll and it's gonna be all about A Walk To Remember.

I love Nicholas Sparks and his books are always amazing to read. I Have seen the Movie and I loved it even though it was sad. It didn't take me long to read this book and finish it, the book isn't that long. 

My Summary:
So this book is from the point of view of Landon who is somewhat of a trouble teenager. He talks about his religious town in Beaufort, North Carolina. His father is a Congressman and is not around much. Landon father does pressure him to run for class president. His best friend is Eric who helps him win the election. Homecoming is coming up and Landon doesn't have a date, He is worried about finding a date. Landon had signed up for Drama Class thinking it was gonna be a easy class. In this class was Jamie Sullivan, who is the Reverend Daughter. Landon doesn't really wanna ask Jamie to Homecoming but he is left with no other options. Jamie is very passionate about what she does and Jamie always wears her hair in a bun, Has on a sweater and always wears a skirt. Jamie also carries around a bible all the time which thats why people make fun of her. Landon decides to ask Jamie to the Homecoming Dance and she says yes. At the dance everything is going fine till Eric and his date shows up drunk. Jamie offered to help Landon with Eric date and they also took her home. Landon wondered why Jamie was being so nice. Landon doesn't like Jamie but his friends soon thought that he liked Jamie. A few days later, Jamie asked Landon for a favor and that was if he can be in the Play of the "Christmas Angel" which is a play that Jamie Dad had set up. Every year it's really big and this year, Jamie wanted to make it very special but Landon didn't know why. Landon know he will be teased for joining but he will do the play anyway. Well one day at Rehearsal Jamie asked Landon if he can walk her home, and Landon said he could even though he didn't want to. Soon it becomes a Routine to walk Jamie home after school and they become more to know about each other. Jamie though told Landon that to Please not to fall in Love with her and Landon laughed and said okay. Soon Eric and other friends started to make fun of Landon for walking Jamie home and said that he wanted to marry Jamie. Landon got mad and one day told Jamie off and it really upset her. Landon soon said he was sorry and Landon went with Jamie to a Orphanage to talk about doing the play there but the Director didn't think that was a good idea but offered they could come hang out on Christmas Eve. The Play soon began and it was packed full of people wanting to come to the play. Landon started getting very nervous but when Jamie came out on Stage he thought she was very beautiful and meant every word in his lines because of her. The play went very well and soon it was packed for the second production. Soon Landon became very fond of Jamie and they started to hang out more and more. On Christmas Eve, Landon and Jamie hang out at the Orphanage and Landon started to have feelings for Jamie. Jamie gave Landon for a present her Bible which Landon at the time couldn't understand why she did that. The Bible was Jamie mother's before she died. After Christmas, Landon and Jamie started going out on Dates. Landon couldn't help the way he felt around Jamie. Well one day when they were walking home, Jamie finally told Landon her secret which was She has Leukemia and that she will die. Landon whole world began to fall around him and his heart was crushed. Soon Jamie had no energy for anything and Jamie started to pass out and hit her head. Landon father arranged for Jamie to have a private nurse because Jamie was always in the hospital. Landon granted Jamie last wish by Marrying Jamie by the way she wanted it done. Even though Jamie father was very hesitant and was always concern about Landon he married them. At the End it talked about Landon in his 50's and that he always remembers those days with Jamie and that he never takes off the wedding ring.

My Thoughts:
I really had Enjoyed this book even though it made me cry at the end. Nicholas Sparks is a good Author, I love how he makes book has a Romantic tale but not so much for making it sad. Almost every book he has written is sad in some way. This and the Notebook is my favorite books to read.

Rate: I give it a 10 and I do recommend this Book. You will love it as much as I did.

*Hope you liked this Book Review! Let me know what you thought about this book below.*
