One Month Later

I'm sure by now, you all have heard about the 17 year old teen that was killed by a neighborhood watch member last month. Words cannot express how this situation makes me feel. In fact, I can barely keep up with the case simply because it literally makes me sick to my stomach. I cannot understand how someone can take an innocence person's life. Rather or not the situation was racially motivated, I believe justice needs to be serviced.

George Zimmerman needs to be arrested simply because he did not follow proper orders in which he was giving- both by the law in which he is trying to hide behind and by the police operator. If I'm not mistaken, the "Stand Your Ground" law, states that you must be in harms way in order for it to protect you. Mr. Zimmerman was not in harms way when he started following Trayvon. I can understand if the tables were turned and it was Trayvon who was following Mr. Zimmerman, but he was not. In fact, I personally believe that Mr. Zimmerman was seeking a reaction from Trayvon in order to justify his actions. Once the operator told Mr. Zimmerman to stand his ground and not to go after Trayvon, the law should have been non in void.

Trayvon Martin could have been anyone's son, dad, grandfather and any race, Caucasian, Hispanic, name it! Please show your support, violence and hatred of any kind, it needs to end here.

Today marks the one month anniversary of Mr. Martins death and I pray that it does not go in vain. My heart goes out to Travyon's family. He should not have to go that way.

Wishlist: B. Makowsky Addison Satchel

While I was browsing through some blogs earlier today, I came across Nicole of The Seventh District blog and she had a picture of her B. Makowsky Addison Satchel purse. Now I have never been the one to fall in love with a purse, let alone a big purse, but lately it has been all I have wanted (other than more makeup). I'm drooling over this purse but not the price. It's a whipping $250.99!! Yes, that's an ouch to someone like me who hates to pay full price for things.

I was able to find it on sale at for $235.99 and for $199.95 at DSW, but of course it is sold out.

Quick Update

First I would like to thank everyone for following my blog and for commenting. It really means a lot to me and I appreciate the love.

Wow, can you believe March is here already?! Seems like yesterday it was the beginning of January. Just wanted to make a quick post about some items that I purchased last month that I absolutely love and will be making reviewing on soon; which are: City Colors Lip Balm in Mauve, NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Smokey Look and the Neosporin Lip Health (actually purchased in January).

Last month Ulta had a buy one, get one 50% off sale on NYX's products and I picked up a few eye shadows, a eyeshadow base and a blush. Not sure on how I feel about the purchase just yet, but I must say that I love, love, love the blush in Terra Cotta. It gives a natural glow to my face whenever I wear it. This is the second blush that I have own since I gotta into make up so I really need to stock up on a few more.

What are some of your favorites from last month and some of your favorite blushes?
