because an original is worth more than a copy"
- Unknown

Hey lovelies! So Valentine's Day is around the corner. I don't know about you guys but I love that day! Its filled with love not only with your special someone but you can show that love to your friends, like me! Sadly, I do not have a valentine, but fear not, you don't need a man to be happy about love!
Here are some tips that could help you get your tush out of bed and start enjoying that special day instead of watching The Notebook and eating cookie dough flavored ice-cream:

1. Gather up some of your single girlfriends and hit the bar, or a fancy restaurant. Show 'em that you don't need a man to have fun!

2. You can never go wrong in watching attractive males strip for you.....and I don't mean going to a strip club! But a little Magic Mike action wouldn't hurt anyone right?

3. Host a little party of your own! Or go clubbing, nothing like some hardcore dancing to get your mind cleared up (don't twerk cause that ish is just not pretty, sorry ladies)

4. Treat yourself to something special, like a spa day or...who doesn't love mani-pedi?

I hope you ladies out there enjoy Valentine's Day just as much as I do!

P.S. - If you do decide to host a party for your single friends, here are some of my favorite snack and drink ideas that you cannot go wrong with:

Number #1 - Nutella Brownies

Yes, you read that right...nutella brownines!
All you need is:
  • A teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • A cup of nutella
  • Half cup of sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup of butter 
  • 3/4 cup of flour
- Start off by mixing your sugar and butter
- Then add the eggs
- The vanilla extract
- The cup of nutella
- Mix it well
- And lastly add the flour
- Mix it, mix it, mix it!!
- Now take a greased brownie pan and smooth the mix into the pan, make sure it's evenly spread out.
- Pop it in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes!
When you take them out be sure not to burn yourself....I did that and well it was NOT fun :(
You can decorate them any way you want to, I cut mine out in shape of hearts and put frosting and sprinkles to get into the spirit but it's totally up to you and what your little heart desires! Enjoy!

Number #2 - Poppin' popcorn

Who doesn't love popcorn? But combine it with chocolate...I swear it's like freaking heaven!
All you need is:
  • Some popcorn
  • Pink and Red M&M's 
  • Red and Pink candy melts
- Start off by spreading the popcorn all over a cookie sheet
- Next microwave your candy melts
- Dip a spoon in the melted chocolate and drizzle it all over the popcorn
- Add a few m&m's while the chocolate is still melted

....and BAAMM you're done! I'm telling you guys this popcorn is so addicting so I definitely think everyone would like it!

Number #3 - Red Velvet Milkshake

All you need is:
  • Vanilla ice-cream
  • Milk
  • Vanilla extract
  • Some red velvet cake mix
  • also....a blender
- Add 1 cup of vanilla ice-cream to the blender
- Next 1/2 cup of milk
- 3 tablespoons of the cake mix
- Then pour in 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and mix away!
***Don't forget, this part is crucial! Make sure and I mean MAKE SURE you do the milkshake dance***

- Then just pour it into a glass and you can decorate it with whipped cream and/or sprinkles! Enjoy!

Number #4 - Valentine Floats

All you need is:
  • Some type of soda or carbonated drink
  • Some sorbet
- So I found this Raspberry sorbet and I put it into a cup....then I just poured in some strawberry soda and that's about it. These are SUPER yummy!

And that's about it! I hope you guys enjoy these as much as I do! Remember, Valentine's Day is about love so show your love to someone. I hope y'all have a lovely Valentine's day...don't go too crazy!

"Imperfection is beauty;
Madness is genius;
and its better to be 
absolutely ridiculous 
than absolutely boring"
 - Marilyn Monroe

Hi, my fellow readers!
My name is...well, complicated, so just call me T!
I know this may seem as another one of beauty blogs you read but I hope to change that. Yes it's true, I'm new to the blogging world, so I would love it if you guys gave me inspiration on what you would like to know and or talk about. I love makeup and its basically my life but that doesn't mean we ABSOLUTELY need it.
I'll be talking about makeup, fashion, and teen advice (as I am a teenager myself!) Feel free to let me know what you guys want my opinion on. Comment away!
Live by this!
Bye lovelies!
xoxo, Beauty Star
