Free Game Test: Brawlhalla

I mentioned before I want to try to a free game every month and then post what I think about it. Here’s the first post of this installment.

aquele clonezinho gostoso de SSB pra voce amar

Brawlhalla is a free to play 2D fighting game that’s very similar in play style to the legendary Super Smash Bros. It was developed and published by Blue Mammoth Games for Microsoft Windows, macOS and Playstation 4. You can pay $20 to unlock all characters current and future ones.

Let me just state that I’m very into Super Smash Bros so I didn’t take much time to learn the controls and rules of this game. The game can be played online or locally against friends which takes up to 4 players.

Just like Super Smash Bros, attack your opponents and send them off the screen. You can use light and heavy attacks and you can use weapons, and it varies from spears, swords, guns, whichever you are comfortable using so you won’t find yourself sticking with one character.

I would recommend playing this game because it’s extremely fun playing with friends or if you prefer playing online with random people. Have you ever played this game before and what are your thoughts about it.

What Do I Want From 2018

The turn of a new year usually comes with excitement, sentiment and goals for the upcoming 365 days. Whether you’ve promised to try a new diet, get back into the gym or get out of your comfort zone, the fact of the matter is that sticking to your resolutions can be difficult. It’s safe to say that old habits die hard. I should also confess that I’m bad in keeping my resolutions but what I do know that I want to be better for my own self.

ProFlowers put together a collection of motivational quotes and I chose this one specifically …

motivational-quotes-Steve-martin

I would use this quote in both ways, for myself and to others. I think I’ve been too hard on myself during 2017 as I kept judging myself and calling myself a bad mother because I overthink and it makes me feel guilty that I don’t spend time with my son as much as I want to.

Originally I believed in “Treat people how you want to be treated” but some people aren’t nice like the girl who I work with and Bitch who stole my sister’s stuff. I want to implement the concept of being good to those nasty people that they won’t forget it. As much as this could test my patience, I want to do it.

Any new year resolution to planned out ? Let me know in the comments.

The Time a Bitch Tried to Ruin My Sister’s Wedding

Alright … I’m calm enough to do this.

Let’s pretend you are getting married, obviously you are nervous while getting your makeup and hair ready then all the sudden you realized your tiara and veil gone just like that. Of course you’d panic and it may ruin your day right ? Alright let me tell you what happened last week.

On the 4th of this month, it was my sister’s wedding day. We were all excited and happy for her and we all booked appointments for makeup and hair in the same salon (me and my sisters).

The girl who did our makeup was with us in college so we knew each other from before and she’s such a sweetheart (here’s her Instagram). Everyone was happy and we joked a lot while taking photos.

Anyway, my sister brought her tiara, veil and jewelry set in a small bag so the hairdresser would attach them while doing her hair. Now there was another bride getting ready in the salon and she had two ladies with her, her sister and a photographer who turned out to be a relative later on but we’ll get to that. Iman (the makeup artist) was feeling uncomfortable around them so that was the first red flag. By 6:30 pm we were almost done and my sister was getting her hair done, my other sisters were searching for the bag that has her veil and they couldn’t find it. We searched everywhere in that salon and we couldn’t find it. obviously my sister started panicking and wanted to cry.

My sister in law thought about the other bride who left an hour before, maybe she took it by mistake. The salon ladies got her number from the appointment date and we called her. The girl said that her photographer probably took it and she gave us her number, now this is where things got crazy.

Photographer: yeah I took it because I thought it was my relative’s stuff
Sister in law: Ok can you bring it back ? because it’s not her’s so return it to the owners.
Photographer (I mean Bitch): no it’s not my fault, I’ll just give the bag to my relatives and I don’t care.
Sister in law: It is your fault and you should return it back.

Bitch hang up the phone …

EXCUSE ME .. HOW THE HELL IT’S NOT YOUR FAULT

The salon workers were following all this drama and they were very angry because she’s a grade A bitch and disrespectful. We called her few more times and of course she didn’t answer, we called from different phones even and still no reply. My sister was on the verge of crying by this time because this girl is ruining her special day. We called the bride again to discuss this issue and it turns out they are from an area a bit further from us like 40 minutes drive.

We tried to make them agree to meet us at a middle point at least because we were getting late and I didn’t mind driving to get it, I just wanted my sister to be calm for her wedding. The lady kept refusing and didn’t want to deal with it, we decided to tell her that we’ll call the police because technically she took my sister’s belongings and refused to return them back. Obviously she got scared and she didn’t want to make this issue grow that big so she agreed to meet us at some park which is 20 minutes away.

So I went with one of my sisters and I remember that I drove so fast, I reached there in 8 minutes. When I parked in that meeting point, my sister said that bitch sent “If i didn’t find anyone there, I’ll throw the bag anywhere” …. I WAS LIVID.

I called her and was like “I’m here, where are you” honestly I was trying not to curse her and was holding myself not to punch her bitch-face when I see her. She came with a guy which I can assume for protection and I just pulled the bag off her hand aggressively without any word because I was too angry. I drove back to the salon again speeding because we were getting really late for the wedding.

Anyway, we reached the wedding later and my sister was happy. Everything worked out well after all that drama even though I honestly think that this bitch should’ve apologized for doing all this and also being really disrespectful.

What would you do if you were in this position ? Let me know in the comments.

Hair Myths I Tested

Recently I’ve dyed my hair back to black after being blonde for almost 3 years, I’ve done Brazilian treatment and recently did a protein treatment as well. I can say I’ve pushed my hair’s boundaries, I’ve damaged my hair too much so I would consider myself well-informed with all the hair damaging procedures. I won’t call myself a hair expert but I think I can honestly say what’s real and what’s not in the book of hair myths, so here’s my take on the truths of these myths.

  • Dyeing your hair too much will make you bald.

If I got a dollar for every time I heard this sentence, I would be rich. The truth in this myth is that, your hair will fall out but not THAT much that you would be bald.

  • Trimming your hair will make it longer.

I don’t know the logic of this myth exactly, I mean technically you are cutting your hair so obviously it’ll be shorter. Here’s my take on this one, cutting the ends of the hair to eliminate the split ends or any breakage happening will make your hair look better OBVIOUSLY … but it won’t make your hair all the sudden grow faster.

  • Fancy hair products work better for your hair

I’ve tried a massive variety of hair products, and I do mean a looooooooooooooooot. Here’s what I found out, hair products don’t help your hair as much as food does. It’s all about what you eat, this is why those hair pills are getting popular. They give you the nutrition that you can originally get from food but in more focused levels.

And always remember conditioner is your best friend whether in make your hair silky smooth or using it as a shaving cream (trust me it works perfectly).

Games to Revisit: Innocent Life

I used to have an app that helped me track all the games I ever played, life was easier with android. I couldn’t find a proper tracker app for my iPhone so it took me time to think of a game to revisit. In the past couple of weeks, I’ve been trying to stop playing Stardew Valley so I can finish Assassin’s Creed Origins and focus more on Tales of Berseria (Because Velvet is bae ❤ ) . To ease off my addiction to Stardew Valley I chose a similar game to it, big mistake I know but it’s also one of my favorites.

ILSEGameBox.jpg

Life is good for the residents of Heartflame Island, especially since new robots and automated machines do almost all of the work. But technology is a tool-not an answer to all problems. Maybe that’s why everyone is a little uneasy about the old stories of strange magic and a prediction that Flame Mountain will erupt and destroy everything. That’s why Dr. Hope, a caring and wise old scholar has sent you, his son on a journey to the ancient ruins to try and run a farm. It is your father’s dream that you will unlock the secrets of the ancient ruins and find the meaning of “life”. Grow crops, care for livestock, interact with the many villagers and explore a futuristic world as you try to unlock the many mysteries surrounding you.

I absolutely love Harvest Moon games, I won’t say I tried all of them but I remember getting it for my 3DS after the name changed to Story of Seasons and I honestly didn’t enjoy it as much. Innocent Life is considered a spin off to Harvest Moon because it had all the elements of that franchise but obviously lacking marriage feature since you play as a Robot I guess ?

The game heavily focuses on the main story which I would say a bit similar to Rune Factory but without a combat system. The main story-line is basically restoring the land and prevent the eruption of the volcano, easy right ? It’s a fun game and I enjoyed it a lot but unfortunately there’re few down sides of it. The whole farming concept is like a main feature in every Harvest Moon game and as you progress in the story, chores gets easier with robots helping in weeding, watering and harvesting the crops so it strays from farming as you focus more in exploring the areas around the island to progress the story.

I’ll only play this to get my mind off of Stardew Valley because ..

This doesn’t make me feel proud …

More GOSH Makeup Haul

IMG_0304_Fotor

We are starting the new year with a makeup post, I need something to distract me from the madness I went through when I played Doki Doki Literature Club … J̴͍͖̥̝͌͊͑u̵̢̥̥͌͝s̸̲͌̀͜t̶̘̳̪͎̉͆ ̵̺̍̐͌M̷͚͚̥͂̀̕͠o̷̞͙͆n̶̬͔͖̫̓̈́͆͋i̵̧̞̥̪̿̌̔͠k̸̺̤̈͝ä̶̜̬͎́̈̔ͅ. Anyway I’ve tried GOSH products before and I was very impressed so I decided to try more products from this brand plus the L’Oreal Paradise Mascara since it was over-hyped by my sister.

GOSH Contour’n Strobe Kit

I’ve been using Kat Von D Shade+Light contour palette and theBalm Bahama Mama bronzer for years so in the spirit of change, I got this palette. I got it in medium shade since I’m Arab so I have a naturally tanned skin and I tried the contour part. I wouldn’t say it’s as good as Shade+Light palette but it takes time to reach the contour level I’m aiming for. I also tried the highlighter on the inner corner of my eyes and I noticed it’s not too glowy like theBlam Manizer I’m more used to, it has a shimmer but subtle. I would say it gives a natural glow but not exactly that much to notice. I know it’s going to take me a while to get used to it, it’s an alright palette I guess.

GOSH Contour Brush

Along with the palette I decided to try the brush as well. I have a brush collection from E.L.F and it doesn’t contain a proper contour brush. The brush is almost similar to those brushes I mentioned, quite soft and picks up the color pretty well. I used it with the contour I mentioned above and it blended pretty well, I like it

GOSH Catchy Eyes Mascara

I’m a total mascara hoarder, I just can’t stop collecting them. This mascara is AMAZING, the bristles are almost similar to Givenchy Noir Interdit Mascara I tried before and loved. The wand is a bit curved so it instantly lifts the lashes from the first coat and it separated the lashes to keep them looking natural. I absolutely love this mascara.

L’Oreal Paradise Extatic Mascara

Now this mascara is overly hyped, and my sister just dropped it in my shopping bag with no words but “try it“. The packaging honestly reminded me of Too Faced Better Than Sex, also the wand … It was exactly like that mascara and I researched about it just so I want to make sure that I wasn’t the only one who felt that, and I found this article from Allure about it. Basically … it’s exactly like Too Faced Better Than Sex so I’m not going to complain about it because I’ve been obsessed with that mascara for years.

Overall, I don’t want to judge the contour palette too hard because I’m more used to another brand which I’ve been using for years so I’ll keep using it for awhile before I give it my final judgement. The mascara is absolutely amazing, I want to use it everyday … all day.

My 2017 in One Post

yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah nothing happened.
Alright I’m rolling with this intro … 

2017 is wrapping up and I feel this year has passed by pretty fast. To sum it up, for me it was a year of self-discovery. I’ve had massive personality changes throughout this year as well, I guess it’s also called growing up.

Here’s a lesson I learned about marriage. First year it’ll be all lovey-dovey, romantic words and all the cheesy love you can possibly handle. Second year, it’ll be full of arguments and tears. Basically on the verge of splitting up because you’ve finally seen each other’s good and bad habits, this is where patience come in place. By the third year, this storm should’ve passed and now you know your spouse pretty well, his/her likes and dislikes and the habits.

I’ve got into makeup more which is something completely surprising to people who knew me since I’ve always hated it.

IMG_20170728_152807

Aside from makeup, I’ve revived my old steam account and I got into gaming again. It feels so good to get back, I’ve been playing older games for quite some time.

IMG_20171209_193000

I’ll post more gaming content, that’s for sure. I was thinking to post about a free game I tried every month, should be fun to try different games that are not normally within my usual choice range. My greatest achievement in 2017 was creating a radio show and airing it for three months now. It was definitely a huge step for me out of my comfort zone, I feel very proud that I did it.

Speaking of change, I decided to go back to my original hair color which is dark brown -almost black, it’s been nearly 3 years since I’ve seen my real hair color as I stayed blonde during these years. I also removed some of my piercings and kept my ears looking more simple and less … gothic ? I feel like I’m ready to change myself and return back to the roots when life was less hectic.

change is good

Happy new year everyone ❤
