how was keith's CHRISTMAS?

Let's start on December 23, 2011.  While doing some shopping at The Gallery, I ran into a few members of Teon's family.  Getting off the escalator on the fourth floor, a young woman taps me on the shoulder.  I turn around to see who it was and my mind drew a blank.  She could tell that I couldn't recognize her and she said that she was Teon's family.  I said Hi still not fully recognizing the young woman.  I think it was one of Teon's cousins.  I finally did recognize Teon's aunt, Gloria and she asked how I was doing.
Later that day, I watched Burlesque on New York's DVD player and I just have to say that I am truly impressed with Christina Aguilera's acting debut.  I know I'm a little late for the train on this one, but it was the best movie I've seen so far this year.  I love the quick editing which left the movie going at a fast pace creating never a dull moment.  I'm truly not a fan of musicals but this one is my favorite thus far knocking Rent off the top my list.

On Christmas Eve, I spent the day with Rick.  We did nothing but stay at his place all day after eating lunch at Ruby Tuesday's. 

I woke up beside Rick on Christmas Day around 10:00 AM.  After making a few calls to some of my loved ones, we went downtown to get a bite to eat.  Luckily we found a restaurant that was open for business, M&S Grill down at the harbor.  I ate a quick meal of fried shrimp and french fries and was off to the HRC before 2:00 PM, count time.  Rick had plans with his family later that evening.  For Christmas my mother gave me a card with $80 in it.  That was about all I received this year.  Rick has yet to give me my gift but I'm a little late on his gift as well.  In fact, I have yet to order the Tretorn "Skerry" Rubber boots I told him I would get him.  Shame on me!

what's keith USING?

HIGHLIGHTS It's time to make acne shake in its boots. This #1 pharmacist-recommended acne treatment contains maximum strength Benzoyl Peroxide acne medication. The unique formula goes to work immediately, releasing the medicine deep into the pores where pimples start. It's the same prescription formula recommended by doctors and dermatologists for over ten years, currently available without a prescription.

WHAT'S IMPORTANT PERSA-GEL® 10 releases acne-fighting medication deep into the pores. It contains maximum strength Benzoyl Peroxide, a medication that fights acne-causing bacteria from the skin to help eliminate and prevent breakouts. Originally created as a doctor prescribed formula, acne-fighting PERSA-GEL® 10 is currently available without a prescription

INGREDIENTS Benzoyl Peroxide 10.0% (Acne medication), Carbomer, Disodium EDTA, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Laureth-4, Sodium Hydroxide, Water

Now here's a product that I can't live without.  In fact, it's my favorite acne-fighting product and I would highly recommend this product to anyone (anyone with normal to oily skin).  I usually apply this product every other night (applying every night does nothing but dry out my skin) and when I wake up in the morning, my pimples are reduced dramatically.  Now I will warn you.  Persa-gel*10 often causes redness and facial swelling especially around my eyes.  I mean sometimes I wake up and people ask me if I've been in a fight.  Inflammation is definitely a side effect but it gets rid of my breakouts nonetheless.  With the help of make-up I try to mask the redness and swelling caused by Persa-gel*10 and I try not to use it the night before I have anything special planned.  Another con--It will bleach your clothing and hair.  Other than that I hope this product stays on the market because I will be a long time loyal customer.  For sure.

why is keith TRIPPING?

OMG.  I just discovered that I have a grey hair.  WTF.  I'm only 24 years of age.  I discovered a white straight hair right in the middle of my crown while brushing my teeth.  It's still there.  I haven't pulled it out.  I'm just really taken back.  WOW.

Friday, December 23, 2011



After Rick and I left the Open Gates health center on Friday December 16, 2011, we walked around the harbor and then we went to Landmark's Harbor East Cinema and watched New Year's Eve.  I have to say that it was pretty average.  IRick actually slept through the first half of the movie.t was a nice and refreshing comedy nonetheless considering the present holiday season.  The movie definitly picks up towards the end.   I won't go into details but my favorite story plot was that of Halle Berry with Robert DeNiro and Sarah Jessica Parker's.

how was keith's DOCTOR'S APPOINTMENT?

On Friday, December 16, 2011, I went to my scheduled doctor's appointment to see just where I stand as far as my HIV infection is concerned.  Unfortunately, the results were none too pretty.  My CD4 count is 4 and my Viral Load is 42,000.  Those numbers actually classify me as having AIDS.  WTF.  OMG.  FML.  I knew my health was not at its best but not that bad.  I don't see how someone who feels as healthy as I can have such a compromised immune system.  But it all makes sense now-- the worms, the shingles.

After Dr. Jocelyn Hines went over my stats she asked me if I had anyone that I could confide in.  I thought for a moment and replied No.  It's sad to say but I really don't feel like I have anyone I can truly talk to about this.  She told me that I should think about going to some support groups much like my medical case manager, Heather Sell, already mentioned.  Dr. Hines says that she finds that those who have confidants tend to fair better than those who don't let their feelings out.  After much thinking, I came to the conclusion that you are my confidant.  I've been pouring my heart out on these pages since Day 1 and you're always available whenever I need to cry a river.  I don't think I can stomach going to a support group just yet.

During the conclusion of my session Dr. Hines gave me some prescriptions.  I'm taking hydroxyzine and loratadine for my allergies.  Since my immune system is so compromised, I'm taking sulfameth, azithromycin and mycobutin, three antibiotics, to protect me from any sort of bacterial infection.  And finally I'm taking Atripla to control the HIV infection.  I started this regimen of medications on December 17, 2011.

what's keith USING?

Unfortunately I have to start off by saying that I'm not too impressed by this product.  This product claims to combat acne while also fading blemishes caused by acne.  It does a pretty good job at fighting breakouts however I can't say that it does that great a job at fading my blemishes.  I apply this product every other night and I just don't know what to say--Hyperpigmentation tends to fade on its own over time.  When using a product that claims to fade dark spots, I expect "rapid" results and I just didn't get that.  In fact this product causes so much irritation that I really don't see how it could help after scratching my face to oblivion.  I don't think I'll be buying this product again or should I say stealing this product again.

what's in keith's POCKET?

Here's a product that I first heard of through YouTube.  Many beauty gurus have raved about this product and to be honest, I just don't get it.  It's your average run of the mill lip balm.  No better than Chapstick.  I will say that it does everything it should which is moisturize my lips.  No magic comes out of this tube.  I promise.

Now this one gets a little more exciting.  It has a subtle red sheen and it smells of cherry.  But why the huge tube, Nivea?  It's a little inconvenient for me to carry in my pocket.

how was keith's WEEKEND?

In all, I have to say that my weekend was pretty decent.  Let's start with Saturday, shall we?  I met Rick at his home.  Unfortunately when I got there he wasn't there.  I called him after his mother answered the door.  He told me to go right in and wait for him in his room.  His mother then kicked his sleeping cousin out of the room for me.  Once Rick finally made it home which was around 5:30 PM, I cursed his ass out.  We were supposed to meet up earlier in the day, however he and his best friend Darlene apparently had other plans.  He apologized and by 06:30 PM I was over my little hissy fit. 

But let me spill the tea.  During our argument, I demanded Rick to show me his I.D.  He showed it to me after much reluctance and guess what I found out.  Rick was born on September 30, 1974.  That makes his 37 years old not 25 years old like I he first told me.  I let it fly because I finally revealed to him that I'm staying at the homeless shelter.  So we both got two big lies off our chest that night.  We are a couple of huge liars, aren't we?

On Sunday, we went to Towson Town Center to go look at phones.  Rick is supposed to buy me a new iPhone with Verizon Wireless for Christmas.  Once we got to the Verizon Wireless stand, it was apparent that the phone I wanted was a little too expensive so I told him to forget about it.  I should have never asked him for the phone in the first place.  Right now, he's focusing on getting a new apartment as well as a new furniture set, so I completely understand.  Afterwards, we ate at my favorite restaurant, T.G.I. Fridays, and then we went to the National Aquarium.  Pretty interesting day, if you ask me.  I fall in love with Rick more and more with each passing day.  I guess that's how it's supposed to be, right?

what's keith USING?

This product and I go way back.  Well not that far back--Maybe a a few years.  It's not my favorite acne fighting product but it does an okay job.  I normally apply it every other night or in the morning after I apply my daily moisturizer.  My favorite thing about this product is that when applied and fully dry it leaves no residue or texture.  So I can use this product before applying makeup.  Expect a burning sensation and irritation, the only two cons I can think of.

what's keith's MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT?

I am HIV-Positive.  This comes as no surprise.  I was officially diagnosed on World AIDS Day, December 1, 2011.  Remember the STI screening I had.  Well I got my test results last Thursday and Dr. Jocelyn Hines informed me of the bad news.  Luckily, HIV and herpes are the only STI's that I currently have.  I'm going to try and make sure it stays that way.

The reason that I have delayed testing for so long was that I was afraid that I wouldn't have access to care.  I didn't want to find out if I was carrying the virus with no means of treatment.  Fortunately, I now have Primary Adult Care health insurance, however it won't cover everything.  This is where my new medical case manager comes in.  Her name is Heather Sell and her job is to help with any need I might ever have.  We're talking needs like housing, additional health coverage . . . the list goes on. Amazing, right?  I will see her whenever I go in for my doctor appointments.  My next appointment is scheduled on December 9, 2011.  It is on this visit that we will see just where I stand as far as this HIV diagnosis goes.  And now that I've finally gotten tested and am seeking the medical care that I so urgently need, I think I can finally say that I Love Me.

what's keith READING?

"Because God is never cruel, there is a reason for all things.  We must know the pain of loss, because if we never knew it, we would have no compassion for others, and we would become monsters of self-regard, creatures of unalloyed self interest.  The terrible pain of loss teaches humility to our prideful kind, has the power to soften uncaring hearts, to make a better person of a good one."

what's keith CELEBRATING?

Yet another World AIDS Day.

This year, just like last year, I made a fifteen dollar donation to amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research--Five dollars in the name of yours truly, five in the name of Teon Eric Jackson and five in the name of Lance Coadie Williams.  Remember, a cure is impossible without research and that everyone may not be infected with HIV however everyone is affected.

how was keith's WEEKEND?

I pretty much spent the weekend with Rick just like we planned.  I even stayed over his house.  And much to my surprise, his place wasn't exactly what I expected.  For starters, he has a one-bedroom apartment at Kensington Gate and it's pretty worn down--The carpet is stained in several places, the kitchen and bathroom looks tattered, and I won't even neglect to mention the bed bug infestation manifesting in that apartment.  However with all that being said, I enjoyed my time over his place.  I'm looking forward to many more stay-overs to come, that is after his mother moves out of the living room.  Yes I said it.  His mother is residing in the living room until she moves into a nursing home next week. 

What did we do this weekend?  On Sunday, we ate Noodles & Company and then we headed to AMC Security Square 8 to watch Breaking Dawn.  I'm pretty sure I got on Rick's nerves the whole weekend.  I will say that I was quite difficult and a total bitch.  Rick still loves me nonetheless and he doesn't look at me any different. 

Now it's just another Manic Monday, wish it were Sunday.

what's keith USING?

Beautiful skin doesn't have to be expensive.  Like other, more expensive products, Dr. Fred SUMMIT Skin Whitener, Ultra blend & Tone Cream(s) and Skin Delight contain 2% hydroquinone, which is the active ingredient that actually helps fade dark areas.  There are no other products that you can buy without a prescription that are more effective.  Dr. Fred SUMMIT products contain exclusive blends of ingredients to help you achieve a more even complexion.  They are an effective aid to help fade blemishes for a clear, beautiful look.  They help moisturize and soothe dry skin and will help give a lovelier complexion.  Your skin will appear lighter and feel smoother.  These beauty creams will help produce a brighter, clearer complexion.

Dr. Fred SUMMIT products can be used day or night and also as a make-up base.  They are easy to apply, which makes them pleasant to use.  These products are truly marvelous skin softeners that effectively fade age spots, brown spots and freckles, restoring a more natural, balanced tone to blemished skin.  The protective sun screen in these products help darkening from recurring.

how was keith's THANKSGIVING?

Charles "New York" Tyrone Johnson
These past few days have been pretty interesting.  For starters I stayed at Ramada Limited Hotel both Tuesday and Wednesday night thanks to Carlos and Lewis, close friends of Charles "New York" Johnson.  I will say that it was a pretty nice getaway from the shelter.  Charles and I had our own room and Lewis treated us to a nice dinner at Applebee's on Wednesday.  How nice, right?

Also, my doctor's office has been trying to get in touch with me ever since Tuesday.  I'm guessing that's when my lab results came in and I'm quite sure it is none too pleasing.  I'm scared now.  We all know the results.  Update coming soon.

Thanksgiving day was spent at the HRC.  It was just another typical day in the neighborhood.

I went home Friday morning to see my grandmother Alice and she's looking good.  I haven't seen her since this time last year.  I plan to make another visit early next week.

And finally today I'm planning on sleeping over Rick's house.  We plan to meet up late this afternoon.  He's a little upset with me because I wouldn't spend this morning with him.  I told him, "I love you," last night and he said, "Okay."  I don't get why he wants to meet up so early anyway.  There's nothing to do.  Plus, if he spent his mornings off resting rather than at his friend's house, then maybe his ass wouldn't be a dead log by late afternoon-evening.  He's always complaining about how tired he is yet he doesn't sleep in.  I don't get it.

is keith A FRUGALISTO?

Body lotion is definitely one of those products where you really get what you pay for.  The more expensive the body lotion, usually the better the product.  Back when I was ballin', I used to prefer Jergen's Skin Smoothing Cellular Renewal Moisturizer or Olay's Quench Daily Lotion Plus Shimmer.  But now I have been using a cheaper alternative--Equate's Cocoa Butter Conditioning Body Lotion.  It's not the best but it gets the job done.  In other words, expect to reapply.  And the best part is that you get a full 10 ounces for about a dollar and a half.  If that's not being a frugalisto, I don't know what is.

how was keith's DOCTOR'S APPOINTMENT?

On Thursday, November 17, 2011 I actually went to go see my doctor.  I haven't seen a doctor since August of 2008.  I had scheduled a physical however I had other health concerns I wished to address, one of which being my herpes outbreak.  It looks like I do in fact have herpes and I have been suffering from an outbreak of open sores around my anus and scrotum for almost two weeks now.  Dr. Jocelyn Hines prescribed Acyclovir as well as Lidocaine Viscous to numb the pain.  If my herpes outbreak doesn't clear up in about two weeks, the doctor says that we may need to discuss options for continued use of an antiviral medication.  In addition, my doctor also took three vials of blood as well as a urine sample for a full STI screening.  I get my results in two weeks.  I already know the results are not going to be good.  I'm not going to sweat it though.  It's about time that I know the truth.  I've been hiding for way to long.  My health is what's most important not my ego.

On Friday, November 18, 2011 I went home much like I do every week and get this!  My mother says that she's planning on getting a foster child.  So she says that I need to find a place to store my things because once the child comes, I will no longer be allowed to come over.  I mean, that is fine by me however Glenda does not need to be fostering any sort of human being.  In fact, she needs major counseling by a psychiatrist before she even thinks about taking on another child.  I feel for that child.  Hopefully, she doesn't make his life a living hell.  To be honest, I don't see it working out.  My mother is the most evil, vindictive, revengeful, selfish, and craziest person on this earth.  What the fuck is she thinking?

Also my grandmother is coming into town from Florida.  She came on Friday afternoon and she's leaving on December 5th.  I have yet to see her.  I plan on seeing her next Friday.

Make Up For Ever High Definition Primer and I go way back--way back to the fall of 2008, the year I first started wearing makeup.  In fact, it was the first primer I had ever used and has been my favorite primer ever since. 

Back when I was a rookie at applying makeup, I would use a cream stick foundation that I wouldn't set with powder and I found that it easily transfered and didn't seem to last all day.  One day after watching a demonstration of HD products by Make Up Forever on the Home Shopping Network, I decided to give this product a try and guess what?  I found that my makeup no longer transfered and no longer faded.  My makeup would look flawless all day long.  It's been a staple in my Makeup Bag ever since.

Figure You Out by Jackie Boyz

I will admit.  It is extremely hard to figure me out.  Many have tried and many have failed.  The thing is that I am not personable at all.  People just don't know how to take me sometimes and I can come off almost arrogant with a little bit of a superficial attitude.  I don't know why.  I think I get it from my mother.  I realize that I'm complicated and I 've grown to accept that that's the way people perceive me.

Now on to the topic of boys, I will also admit that I love to play games.  I don't use and abuse 'em but it's hard to grab my attention.  I try to play very hard to get.  Again, I don't know why I play games.  Well maybe I do.  I think it might have to do with my insecurities and I make myself very reserved as to not get used or hurt.  The way I look at it is that if a guy is willing to put up with me and my games then maybe, just maybe he's worthy of my affection.  I don't want to sound like I'm every guy's prize, but I just have to know without a doubt that a guy is really into me and willing to build a healthy relationship.  There's too many playas out here and I am no one's free-booty.  You heard me?  I used to charge for my milkshake, not anymore.

why is keith CURSING RICK OUT?

Because once again, he canceled on me.  As you remember, we were supposed to be in New York City at this very moment.  Unfortunately, he has to work.  I was so pissed off last night after I called him.  You think he would have at least called me and let me know that he had to work.  Get this!  He told me only after I called him.  What a jackass?  It's okay though.  I told him that we weren't going on anymore trips.  He says he doesn't care.  He just wants to spend time with me but how can he spend time with me when he's either at work or over his friend's house. 

I would have to say that our conversation over the phone last night was pretty interesting.  I was yelling and cursing Rick out on the phone while on top bunk 151.  Everyone heard me.  I called Rick a dumbass twice if I'm not mistaken and Rick even hung up on me twice.  One of those times was right after he raved about how he pays for all the trips and the only thing I did was do a little research on the internet. 

Today I'm still a little mad at Rick not because he has to work but because he failed to inform me in a timely manner.  Again, I don't feel like he thinks my time is valuable.  And I'm not the one to be waiting up on no man.  Period.  I would have to say that our relationship is in total shambles.  There's a lot that we're not telling each other.  He can feel it and so can I.  Is there a future for Rick and I?  I honestly don't know at this point.  I'm just not happy anymore.

 Second To None Stick Foundation is an oil-free makeup that easily creates a flawless complexion.

If you're Black and you know it, "Clap your hands!" 
* Clap Clap *
If you have a problem finding a foundation that showcases
your true undertones, "Clap your hands!" 
* Clap Clap *

Well not anymore.  Iman Stick foundation comes in 14 shades and addresses my undertones perfectly.  As you can see, I use both Clay 3 and Clay 4 and since this foundation offers full coverage, I actually use it as a concealer--Clay 3 around my eyes and Clay 4 for hyperpigmentation on my face.  It comes with a guide that offers valuable information on how to use the foundation and with illustrations on just where to place it.  I normally set it with powder and it seems to last all day, although I might have to touch up after about 8 hours and I have pretty normal skin.  It dries to a dewy yet natural finish.  Plus I can't neglect to mention the obvious.  It's travel-friendly and you really don't even need a brush to apply.  Just rub on and blend with your fingertips.

what's in keith's MAKEUP BAG?

This fantastic product comes enclosed in a pump bottle and let me tell you--I will never be the same Without You.  Where do I even begin?  It's essentially the best blush ever.  It has a natural finish or look that leaves no texture like some powder blushes.  That's enough to call it a true HD blush in my book.  It really does give my skin a natural flush of color due to its sheer consistency and it lasts all day and easily blendable.  I only use one pump for my entire face and my best method for applying this product is with your standard foundation brush.  I guess Sonia Kashuk really does know what she's doing.  I just wish she would have more products for us Brown Beauties.  But I guess you can't win 'em all, huh?

You may not know this but my favorite restaurant in the world is T.G.I.

who's keith CURSING OUT?

Men's Floor at the Harry & Jennette Weinberg Housing & Resource Center
And yet another addition to my Halloween Weekend.  I cursed Collins Johnson, or you know him as Rip, out last night for hitting on my friend, Nay.  I told him never to utter a single word to me or even look my way.  Our friendship is officially terminated. 

On to other news. . . the sisterhood has finally broken up.  Nay is shacking up with her new boyfriend and Andrea has moved back in with her sister.  Andrea claims she moved back in with her sister because her mother died however I don't believe her.  You see, Andrea is a dope head so we really don't know what the deal is.  I wish her the best though. 

I have yet to mention a few other friends that I have made over the past few months.  They are Mike, Donte Miller and Charles Tyrone Johnson.  Mike is an interesting fellow.  He actually enjoys being homeless.  Go figure.  Donte Miller has got to be one of the craziest young guys I have ever met.  He'll make up a story about you in an instant.  And Charles, also known as New York, is a total sweetheart.  He has no vision in his right eye and he just got out of jail about three months ago.  So the sisterhood might be broken but at least I have some brothers around.

And before I go I just have to mention that intake at the HRC has gotten ridiculous.  You should see us flocking to the door like a herd of animals right before the intake process begins.  The cold weather is bringing a ton of new faces and there are only 175 beds upstairs.  And no one wants to go to "overflow,"meaning you have to wait outside in the cold for about three hours for a school bus to take you to the old and filthy JHR building.

how is keith's HALLOWEEN WEEKEND?

28th:  I caught the 64 bus to Port Covington Shopping Center and paid a little visit to Walmart to grab some cosmetic items and of course, candy.

29th:  I was busted in a lie by Rick.  He saw me walking in The Gallery to go eat and he gave me call.  I lied and told him that I was at home eating.  He then told me to turn around and there he was.  I was so busted.  He left but then came back and we had a pretty lengthy discussion.  I blamed my lie on the fact that I was a little pissed off at him due to the fact that he forgot what we had planned to do this weekend which was to visit New York City.  He even stated that that was the third time I've lied to him.  In fact, I've lied to him way more times than that.  I inquired on the other two incidents but he wouldn't disclose them. 

I will say that I learned a lot during our conversation.  I figured out why he's always so distant and lacking energy when we go out.  His job requires a lot from him, so he's either tired or has work on his mind not to mention a personal life to tend to.  I now realize that Rick has a lot on his plate and that I need to be a bit more understanding when he blows our plans off.  He states that he just forgets about our plans and that I should remind him.  That I will do.  And after much deliberation, we are FINALLY going to New York City in about two weeks. 

30th:  Where do I even begin?  I went to The Gallery again to eat at around 11:00 AM.  Guess who was there?  Rick, sitting down at the food court.  What the fuck was he doing there so early?  Meeting up with one of his friends.  For the record, it seems like he spends way more time with his friends than with me but that's another post.  Rick even swears up and down that I know some of his friends, however that is impossible.  I don't hang out with the close nip group of fags in Baltimore.  I am not a part of that roster.  Getting back to the story, I basically ate my food while Rick was on the phone.  I must also mention that I really don't feel any more special than some of Rick's friends anyway.  I overheard him offering to pay for one of his friend's phone bill and he even bought that friend a T-shirt.  That's damn near close to the same amount of things he has bought me.  Anyways, after I ate, we did some window shopping.  Another FYI--I hate window shopping.  It sucks having to browse through things that I can't afford or have right now.  I told Rick that I had to be "to work" by 01:00 PM and he then walked me to the shelter.

By night time I was faced with more drama.  I had to deal with drunk-ass Rip and he was acting a fool.  He was loud, obnoxious and way to intimate with me.  I think I'm going to need to get a restraining order against him.  So he says it, that would be the fifth order of restraint against him.  He is one crazy and obsessed motherfucker.  And get this.  He has a girlfriend.  So why is he chasing me?

31st:  It's Halloween and I have nothing planned for today.  After I publish this post, I'm going to go to The Gallery to eat lunch and then I'm back in the line up at the HRC.  What a lousy weekend, if I must say so myself?  Well at least I'm still breathing, right?  Thank you lord for that.

So I already hit you with my Top Five Brushes from both the e.l.f. Essentials and Studio Collection.  Well, here are a few more of my favorite eye products.  Don't have 'em in your makeup bag?  Shame on you girl.  Only $1 - $3.  What are you waiting for.  Click HERE!  (No, I don't work for e.l.f. and I'm SO not getting paid.  I just love the brand.)

1. e.l.f. Essential Eyelash & Brow Wand, $1.  Great for combing through lashes to remove clumps or to groom stubborn eyebrows. 
2. e.l.f. Essential Brow Comb + Brush, $1.  Another option for combing through eyelashes and grooming eyebrows. 

3. e.l.f. Essential Eyeshadow Brush, $1.  There is no need to spend more than a George Washington on any kind of eyeshadow brush.  Need I say more.

4. e.l.f. Studio Angled Eyeliner Brush, $3.  It's about time an affordable option for this kind of brush is available.  Great for applying cream or gel eyeliner.  Love, Love, Love.  Can't say it enough.

5. e.l.f. Mineral Eyeshadow Primer, $3.  Great eye primer on the cheap.  Works exceptionally well.  The same as the e.l.f. Essential Eyelid Primer.

what's on keith's MUSIC PLAYLIST?

"You just Lost The Best Thing that crashed into your life.
And if you're done pretending then get yourself a life.
Cause payback, here I go.  I'm taking back the perks that you'll never know.
And you just lost the best thing that crashed into your life."

what's keith LOOKING AT?

Aren't these pictures DEELISH?  Don't we all wish we could be in Giselle's position?  I know I do.  I first stumbled upon these photos on WENDYISTA about a year ago.  Since I sneak a glance at these photos ever so often, I just thought I had to repost for my own viewing pleasure.
