Dollar tree HAUL!

Yay! I love shopping at the Dollar Tree! But I had NO idea they sell their stuff in bulk, online! Did you? This is awesome. Having a baby, it's hard for me to get out and shop in the real world. Babies don't like to be in a shopping environment and will make it so difficult for you to stop and stare at fun things. They always want to go home!

Everything is $1 - All Day Every Day! at

For the past few weeks, I have been going into this site and buying things in bulk, that I know we will need. It's just like shopping at the store, except I am in my pajamas at home, while I hold my "happy to be home" baby. :)

Here are some items I bought: If you want to see them, just click on the links I have provided for you. Made it easy for you to see them :)

1) Foldable Plastic Storage Boxes-I know I bought 48, but I am going to use them all. We have cabinets all over the house with stuff, stuffed in. I am going to use them to store pictures, small arts and crafts items, make up, baby items. I am also going to use some to put gifts in. And going to take some to the office for organization there. The cool thing is, you can insert a little card into the front slot to label in each box. Pretty awesome stuff here.

2) Window cleaner: With so many mirrors, windows, glass table tops, our car's windows and other glass stuff, we go through window cleaners like crazy. I am so glad I bought a bunch. I put some bottles in the garage, one in each bathroom and stored the rest away for another time! Can't beat window cleaner for $1.

3) Batteries: Eveready Super Heavy Duty AA Batteries, 4 ct. packs. Having kids means, you need batteries ALL of the time! Toys almost all require batteries. We have some toys that use our rechargeable batteries. But we don't have enough for ALL toys.

4) Reusable Shopping bags-I keep telling myself to buy a few of these. I see them at the checkout counter, but by the time, I am done shopping, this sounds silly, but I am done. I have bought 1 or 2 of these and I use them, but mostly I don't have enough. I usually come home with 10 or more bags full of groceries. These seem to be larger than the standard grocery bag, which means you can carry more at once. I plan to put 10-15 of these in each car, so that I always have them with me. Also, going to give some away to my dad and inlaws. They would never think to buy stuff like this.

The Dollar Tree also has Floral Supplies & Decor, Party Supplies, School and Office Supplies, Teacher Supplies, Arts and Crafts, Toys Games and Activities, Health and Personal Care items, Cleaning Storage and Hardware, Kitchen and Tableware, they also have a section on new arrivals and seasonal items, like for Valentine's day that is coming up :)

Penelope Cruz did my hair style?

I got some messages from people telling me Penelope Cruz went to the Golden Globe awards in a hair style similar to one of my tutorials. I searched for videos of the awards and found they actually are very similar.

I am not saying, I invented this hair style. Just find it so cool, that she would wear a look I have done a tutorial on :) I like to imagine she or her stylist were following my tutorial :) It's a fun day dream for me.

Here is her hair style at the 2010 Golden Globes

Here is my tutorial :)

Similar, right?

To Kandee Johnson

I first discovered Kandee's videos last year, like most of us did. She first intrigued me with her Marilyn Monroe pin up make up. I knew she was going to rise up high when she started doing her Halloween looks. She is truly talented.

I thought it was super cool when she mentioned me in one of her videos. I was like wow! How nice of her. Here is the video where she mentions my channel (ILoveGerardo):

One of her greatest talents, besides the obvious of hair and make up, is her ability to reach through your computer screen and steal your heart. She truly tries with everything she is, to make you have a great day. No matter what horrible things you've been through.

It's ironic that someone who spreads so much joy, would need us to return the favor.

I hope that every thing she is going through right now, gets taken care of and erased. I hate seeing people go through terrible things and then seeing them being judged.

We've all made mistakes in our lives. We've all been accused of something we didn't do. But the truth will set her free.

To Kandee: If you ever read this, there are a great bunch of us, who have never met you in person, but have grown fond of you through You Tube. Please keep your head up. This will pass.

Your happy and positive person has affected so many of us and because you exist, we smile.

I am pretty excited. A company is going to send me some wigs to try out and show my viewers. You guys don't know how much I LOVE to mess around with wigs. It allows you to have a different style and not have to damage or commit to one look! I hope to have them this month and the video up this month too!

My white nails


Look at this.

What in the world? My nails are white! They are like a blank canvas right now. I didn't even have time to fix the edges :( As soon as they were close to drying, the baby woke up. I was like "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"

I messed some up and didn't get to do anything else to them. But I kinda like them. It's weird.

They kinda remind me of mint gum for some reason, you know the ones that are hard.

The funniest part, about this picture, is the fact that I am not holding anything in my hand, so it makes it look like I'm all :"arrrghhhhh!"<--- monster growl.
Ok gotta go!

My make up on New Year's Eve

Hi You!

I really don't know why the pictures look like this, but I noticed that if you click on them, it will take you to the original picture. Any tips on how to do this better next time, from you professional bloggers, is appreciated.

Ok so my New Year's Eve was at my inlaws house. Grandma has a room especially for her grandkids. Isn't that nice? Anyway, here I am in that room LOL!

I'm all dressed up, my make up done! Got my top at TJ Maxx- Love that store. My make up is the 2nd look from this video

Hubby and I

My makeup

Happy 2010!


What I do

I make hair tutorials on YouTube. But I created this blog to connect with my fellow writers/bloggers. I've also created a myspace account, but I don't like the format for blogging. I'd rather blog here. As far as something to note about me: I rarely have will power when it comes to dieting. I'd rather eat what I want, but in moderation. I like girly stuff, but I don't like doing my own hair. I rarely do my own hair, so if you saw me in the street, you'd probably not recognize me. But if you ever saw me, I would love it if you came to say hi. Thanks for reading my blogs.
