I'm lazy.

I've been sitting back and really doing nothing but sleeping the past few months.
I've got eleven days till my trip and I'm going to try to get all my coursework done before then!
I did three classes in two days last year.
It's possible.
Anyways since both the brother and the SIL are working tonight, VIDEO TIME!

Any ideas/requests?

I'll have a FOTD up later.
Expect changes on my blogspot!

What do you girls think?

So I've been debating on what to wear for the plane ride.
It's going to CHILLLYYY in Chicago!
Also I've been bugged constantly with what I want for the holidays.

What do you guys think about these two items?

Fab V Neck Sweater by Forever 21 $9.50

And then what I really want is this coat
Belicia DB Coat $ 44.80 by Forever 21

And then some dark denim jeans and black peep toe heels?

Classy but not over doing it?
Yes no?
Feedback is GREATLY appreciated!
:) Let me know!


Where oh where has little Sarah been?

I've been here suprisingly.
I've been completely boggled down with non stop family and never a moment of my own.
I did a vlog last night which I'm still iffy if I'll post.
Most likely I'll redo it.
I appreciate all the love and support you guys have given me!
Anyways I'm going to be going to see the boyfriend on the 20th, yay!
I'll be sure to do my "hot girl" look as Jenn requested!
Any ideas?
My boy doesn't really like the whole eyeshadow thing so I'm trying to think of a good look. Plus I'll be seeing his family and LOL don't wanna look like a mail order bride!

So we've got what three weeks till Christmas/Hanukkah.
I was raised with both Judaism and Catholicism in my family so I celebrate both.

What's on YOUR wish list? ;)

Neutral Eye requested by Babylc26 aka Nancy!

So Nancy asked for a natural/neutral look. I think this might be a little bit darker than "natural" but you guys tell me what you think!

*I plucked my brows right before this so my skin looks a bit pinkish.

First start off with something to prime your lids. I chose my handy dandy E.L.F. all over cover stick in fair.


Then take a chocolatey brown color and place it in the out corner of your eyes and a bit in the middle. Use whatever medium shadow brush you feel comfortable with and a crease brush. :)

I used Revlon's Blazen Berry quad's dark brown. This quad is pretty old lol! I don't know if they sell this anymore but you can find tons of dupes.


After than take a light vanilla taupe color and place in the inner tearduct and the inner 1/3 of the eyelid. I used a smaller concealer brush for this.




Add some liner and some mascara. Don't forget to curl your lashes and then you're finished!
Simple and Easy, eh?

Revlon Brazen Berry Quad dark brown color 5.99$

E.L.F. 1$
[not pictured.]

Maybelline Lash Expansion 1.70$ :)



My return!

Long time no see!
So I've been a bit MIA in the past few weeks.
There has been tons of stuff happening and now I have my brother Phillip and his fiancee Audrey who I adore living with us.
My mother and step father are in a divorce which was long overdue.
While we're in a better mental and physical health, fincially we're a bit screwed so family is really helping us out.
I really wish the economy and especially the housing market would pick back up again because we might like to sell the house but can't due to the market.
Anyways enough about that.
I switched Audrey into a EDM user which has helped with her skin.
I feel secretely like a drug dealer for EDM! LOL.
She gave me some minis from her sample kit that were my color but too light for her.
We now have one dog Remy and three cats. All of the cats are bigger than Remy so it's amusing.
My bestie Brit's dogs had puppies and we've decided to keep one to share since we're going to live together and we wanted a shared dog since we have seperates.
Any names?
We still haven't chosen if we want a girl or a boy.
:) I might get some pictures up soon.

Also I'll have a photo tutorial up for you all.

Requests baby!


Btw! Thanks for everyone for the love and support I've gotten!

Fresh Minerals Smoothing Prep Primer:
Where to find it?: http://www.freshmineralsusa.com/smoothingprepprimer

"The Smoothing Prep Primer is a silicone based primer loaded with
Vitamins A, C, and E to restore skin health and reduce fine lines.

canvas when used in conjunction with freshMinerals foundations.
bronzers, or blushes."

Possible EOTD later today!

Welcome to the White House.

"Change has come to America."- President Barack Obama.

While I do not and I will not share my personal political beliefs in my videos, I will have my blog.
I am a young girl who hasn't been on this earth for very long but history classes catch you up quick with what has happened. I was raised by a very strong willed mother because of that, I soon got into politics at an early age. I'd lost a lot of hope in our nations government after 9/11. I lived on a military base and the shock that everyone around you is involved in war, is not an easy one. You don't know if you'll ever see your neighbor, your parent, your brother/sister, your friends parents, ever again. With a time of war and a failing economy, I knew we needed change, as did many in this country. People who have worked hard their entire life for whatever they earned are losing everything now. I myself now live in a house in a nice suburb which housing market has crashed, our house is worth less than what we owe on it. At that point, I knew again we not only needed change, we needed hope. About a year an a half ago, I had heard about Barack Obama and his speeches intrigued me. I'd never seen someone of recent who could speak and inspire the way he does. I followed the election day in and day out, and smiled as Obama climbed his way to the top. As the votes came in last night, I cried. I cried because I knew that that same man who I had been looking up to, had finally won. I am not of voting age but the long lines that I saw were something that to me was shocking. No matter what candidate those people were voting for, because I do believe you need many different voices and opinions, they were looking for change too. I am proud to be an American.I am fifteen years old and I can't wait for the next four years and everything that follows.

10-30-08 :)

Hey everyone! So I wanted to update you guys on whats going on in my life lately. I've gotten a tad behind in school so I really need to pick up on the slack with that. I'm looking for requests, so if you have any.... LET ME KNOW! LOL. I just wanted to give thanks to all of my youtube family. You all really mean a lot to me and there is nothing I'll ever be able to do to thank you enough for it. I hope to have some new tutorials and other videos up this week.
My goal is one a day or one every two days.


Quote of the day:
"Don't ever complain about growing old, some people never get the chance to. "

When times get low.

Blogging and youtube can fix almost anything.
I'm so glad I found youtube and started to make my own videos.
As cheesy as this may seem, I've found some of the greatest people.
Despite drama which I've been luckily enough to not have to deal with,
the make up community is such a AMAZING group.
I've gone so far in the past four months in my make up knowledge.
I had no idea what a base was.
Anyways I just am really glad that I found a great outlet with amazing people to listen.
It's great.

I should have quite a few videos coming up tonight and throughout the weekend.
Everyday Minerals comes next week.
I'm so obsessed with them.

Here you go Holly. You got the life blog out of me.

Guess what.
I lied.
I was going to update everyday, and I didn't.
I kinda thought I'd leave this just for make up but no, I'm going to do vlogs and blogs.
Thanks to Holly.
Who is a freaking doll.
She got me back into blogging.
So you can thank all of the upcoming rants and random posts.
Let's see, what really has been going on in my life?
Family and the comfort of the sweet, loveable, relaxing bed.
I've been ultra lazy lately.
I need to stop with that.
I think I'm sure that I'm going to stick with my SKonline[ the program I'm in for online learning.]
I don't really feel like going through this year at 5 am to 2 pm.
Especially with one teacher trying to teach 35 kids.
I'll save that for senior year.
As I mention this, I don't mind if you disagree with my choice in being educated online.
Although allow me to tell you why it, in my opinion, is much better than public face to face schooling.
1. 1 teacher x 35 kids= not much time to answer questions.
2. Who really enjoys getting up at 5 am after a night filled with insomnia and usually running on an hour or no sleep.
3. Being able to sleep in and plan your schedule around whatever you want it.
4. Having less stress about clothes, hair, make up, and that other annoying shit that can get old quick every single day.
5. After losing a friend in VT, I have a phobia of school shooters.
6. Being able to ignore your teacher's email.
7. Instant grading and being able to get everything done and having months off.
8. Ability to watch t.v., youtube, surf the web and music while studying and whatever else I may be doing.
9. Better selection of courses.
10. Tattered, torn, and disgusting 5 year old school books or clean highlighted, defined, clear text?

I could go on but I won't bore you more.

Off to Sally's or wherever I end up at.
I need some starbucks.
Seattle coffee filled veins, I tell you.

My first blog/Introduction/Confusion!

Hey everyone so this is going to be my blog for life and my youtube friends.
My name is Sarah.
Let me explain my names.
I was born Lisa.
When my stepfather's army career took us to Virginia I decided to informally change my name to Sarah, when we moved to Kansas I changed names again to Tyra.
My family and Oregon friends know me as Lisa.
Virginia and most people online know me as Sarah.
And Kansas as Tyra.
Now that I've confused you enough I'll let you know my age.
I'm fifteen years old.
I'm a sophomore in high school.
For the past four months I've been doing my schooling online and have plans to keep doing my schoolwork via the internet.
My plans can change and I do plan on going to prom both times.
Anyways, this is just going to be my first blog.
After this I'll try to update everyday and post my youtube videos and text versions of my hauls and reviews on here.
