GOING TO HAITI: FEB 19th... Would be honored to have your support on my journey

This is the email that I sent out to family and friends, professors and colleagues, etc regarding my trip to Haiti. It explains all of the details of the trip, etc. I apologize if this seems rude or inappropriate, but I would IMMENSELY appreciate your help. I am not asking you to donate money, but more so asking if you would put a link on your blog or website. We need all of the help we can get, and this letter explains the donation + sponsorship procedure. All donations done through our automated VENMO system will be 100% tax deductible and secure.
Thanks for your support and time,
LOVE YOU ALL <3

Dear Family and Friends,

I am writing to let you know that I will be traveling to Haiti with
The R.E.L.I.E.F. Foundation, an emergency and disaster response group
(http://therelieffoundation.org/) over President's Day weekend.

The group was founded in 2005 by University of Miami professors and
students in order to offer humanitarian aid to the victims of
Hurricane Katrina. In response to January's catastrophic earthquake
in Haiti, this same humanitarian group, as well as some new members of
the organization, will be traveling to Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The
group has partnered with several non-profit organizations including
Project H.O.M.E., Operation Clean the World, and The Red Cross to
construct an orphanage to support the rising number of homeless
Haitian children. The group is scheduled to leave Miami
International Airport on Friday, February 19 and return on Monday,
February 22, 2010.

Our goal is to construct a tented facility that will serve as a step
down unit for children that have been treated at the hospital and are
ready to be released, however do not have family or loved ones to be
discharged to. Until now, they have been kept in a makeshift hospital
by the airport. The facility that we will establish will become a
center outside of the hospital for the children to safely recover,
sleep, live, and play.

The group traveling to Haiti is comprised of 120 volunteers. They
include translators, physicians, nurses, teachers, politicians,
religious leaders, a security team, and even a college-senior-drawing-and-theatre major
(:-]). In response to an overwhelming outcry for humanitarian aid, all
involved have been asked to raise money and collect supplies to bring
on our relief trip. We have been asked to bring medical supplies,
water, tents, and other aid to help support orphans who currently have
no place to call home.

Our group would be extremely grateful for any sponsorship you could
provide. Please consider supporting us through a donation or
supplies. Instructions on how to donate as well as a list of supplies
we have been asked to collect are mentioned below. The trip will be
leaving from Miami International, so please let me know if you would
like to donate supplies so I can assure that I have the capacity to
transport them to Miami.


Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or
concerns. Thank you in advance for your support.

Best Regards,

Julia Wise

1 Year Later: I write to YOU, my bestest friend.


Dearest Angel of Mine,
So here we are. I feel like saying "I miss you" has become part of my everyday conversation with you...I feel like it doesn't even do justice to how I feel anymore. I beyond miss you. I long for your voice, your laugh, your smile, your "Julzies!", Your "Billi's Chilly Trilli" Ugh, your everything baby. I miss you so. I love you more than anything, and I PROMISE YOU: I will continue fighting MY own battles, continue pushing forward in my life, because you didn't get the chance to. I PROMISE YOU: Everyday I am fighting for you, reaching for you, living FOR YOU. I will continue to, everyday for the rest of my life, My Sister. I lost a best friend, but I gained an angel, I store a little bit of heaven everywhere I go. I will remember you in the brisk morning breeze, in the warmth of the sunrise, in the rush of the now, and in the hope seen in the eyes of my first born daughter, who will take on your name, with my honor, my pride, and my longing. So until we meet again in person, my BESTEST FRIEND, we will continue to meet up and hug only in my dreams, and I will continue to droop my head in sadness, as the tears stream down my face, and as I must say goodbye, once again. I.LOVE.YOU.SO.MUCH.JILLIAN SIEGEL...More than words could ever express. Love love love you. Forever Your Trillion. And you, My Billion. I got you Jilli. Always have. Always will. And you will always have me. Rest In Peace my love,
YOUR "JULZIES!"
08.30.1988-02.10.2009
Typing this as you rested your head on your pillow, one year ago, tonight. Here's to you baby. I bow. I pray. I love.

A moment.

Hi guys-


I hope you can understand that I'm taking a bit of a break. Emotionally, things have been brutally cruel and right now the mere act of breathing seems so daunting. As some of you know, this past year was a hell hole for me and my family, and this past summer was a close call. Right now, I need to take some time to sit and listen to my innerchild that so deeply needs comfort and compassion. So that is what I'm doing. I will be back, of course, but right now I just really want to hide. Thanks,
Love and Light to all of you,

Julz


{ps} PLEASE hold our precious Leng in the light. Please hold her high and keep her in your prayers.

For ErinBooBoo <3

Quick and Simple Tutorial Time!


Erin asked me (this morning in a preshpresh texticle [change the "x" to an "s" and that would NOT a sentence make, yo.]) if I would show how I do my liquid/gel eyeliner. So I did this video. But you can't really see it! Fab.

So I will do another one tomorrow, but if it helps at all to entertain you, here it is.

[Plz forgive my less-than-sweet 'tude in this one. I am totes sick :( ]

Carry on, YoungBulls. Peace.

Vloggy # Dos

Y'all this is so effing long, like 33 minutes plus, so break up the time . Or just skip through it all. I was seeing how and what it would be like to do a makeup tutorial of my everyday shiz, but clearly I need to work on my skillz. Wowee. [It would help, too, to not chase the dog for 15 minutes...)


In this video you will find:
ME WITHOUT MAKEUP (look. out.)
Buddha
My outfit (comfy)
My low-key everyday makeup
Quite a bit of Random Verbiage :D

Oy. It is so ridiculously long. Will be cutting it down in the future (the videos, that is.)

Lover Y'all! Happy Monday and i hope all the jewbies are enjoying their holiday!

Meowz!

The lookski:



FOR ERIN:

SEXUAL.

BYEZ!

Shut your front door.

Seriously! It is kind of nice to come back and see that I still have ppl who didn't delete me from their google readers! Yay! Haha, I think I got a lil cocky thinking that I would get some hater comments. You gotta be a BIG. HUGE. [GIRTH.] of a deal to get those types of comments. Phew! That was a close one y'all. ;)


Anyways! You guys were such cuteness in your responses. I literally melted with each and every one and was laughing so hard. We are all SUCH craycray, right? Luhuuvvv it.

I was glad you liked the makeup and the shirt! As prev. stated, I cannot hold a candle to Erin and Amez , but I have fun with it, you know? I just figure, what the H-E-double.hockey.sticks! Why am I not allowed to feel good? WHO AM I to deny myself the privilege of feeling cute and sassy?! I think it is so important that each of us remember that we must set limits on our self-reflective judgments. Example: Driving to class the other day, I was feeling SO FABULOUS. It was divine and the sun was peaking in, the morning had the precious dew of rain and the breeze of baby autumn leaves and I really felt amaze. Suddenly I was filled with anxiety and self-doubt. And the judgments started to flow. *You met your calorie count yesterday, plz. you have no right to feel so good about yourself --- With all you ate yesterday? You are not focusing. You are being sloppy and messy and you have no point of concentration and you blah-blah-blah-blah-fuck-ing-blah.* And then I realized something: I SPEND SO MUCH TIME WORRYING ABOUT NOT DOING SOMETHING--- Worrying about how best to avoid something. I put so much Energy into avoidance and perfection, that all I do, in reality, is make my focus so small that my entire life comes down to just that- a small, miniscule key-hole world, where I am not living. In situations such as the one mentioned above, we have to be advocates for ourselves. We have to realize that if we do not change how we view our own strengths and our possibilities for achievements, we will NEVER see that those possibilities are even there. This is something I have to coach myself through every. single. day. I am sorry to put this in here, but this is what I am going through right now, and as QUEEN OF FUCKING EVERYTHING told me yesterday, "BE YOU" and "Don't hide who you are." I have spent a long time hiding, both from others and from myself and if I am not honest, I am doing myself a disservice and that shit ain't gonna fly like it used to. So here we are :) *Voilin Concerto over. CUE APPLAUSE!*

[I'm annoying.]

SO, I will TOTES do clothing stuff, makeup stuff, and other fun sheeit. I am kinda irked that I said "fashion" in my video, because I just don't think I am a fashion type person. I have a very clear sense of style that is all my own and I always have. I. LOVE. MY. CLOTHES. THERE! I SAID IT! Like, omg. Love them all and would love to show y'all some of my faves/essentials. Some are hand-me-downs (think Vintage Ralph Lauren Daddy Flannelry) and some are vintage (80's Coach shoulder/saddle), and some are just plain amaze.

What do you want to know about makeup stuff? Would you want me to do tutorials? Show you my favezy products? Tell you what I used for my makeup? TELL ME! TELL ME! I really want you guys to guide me here because it is most fun to do things that others want me to do for them, and plz. Y'all are so important to me I would just love to do anything for you. Mwahz!

Yesterdays EOTD:
WOH. Girlfriend needs to do something with those EYEBROWS! ERIIIIIIIIINNNNNNN!!!

Underneath:
Concealer (Underneath eyes and on lid up to brow bone): Cinema Secrets in PS601S-18 (fave.)
Lid to Brow and Lower Lash Line (bc we did put shadow there with a liner pencil brush) Urban Decay's Primer Potion (great for dry, uber sensitive skin; VERY hydrating
Eyes: Used BOTH Infatuating Rose 6 Shadow Palette (Mac), Vellum (Mac; a reflective white/pearl), and two NYX trio palettes, TEAM SPIRIT and ULTRA CHIC.
-First applied concealer to top and bottom of eye.
-Apply one coat of primer to each eye (gently dab with finger and add to lower lash line)y
-Using an eyeshadow brush (I use Loew Cornell Maxine's Mop in 3/8 of an inch, but any eye shadow brush (in 3/8ths of an inch will work great; this is actually a painting brush. I LOVE IT.), apply shimmery white to lid.
- Take a light/shimmery pink and apply to inner third of eye (close to tear-duct). (Keeping the white clean above ball of eye).
-Blend.
- Take purpley-blue (I used NYX "s spirit": color on far left of trio) and place it in crease (I use a blending brush for this, starting with small circles and then gently working in towards tear duct.).
- Take Deep purple and using a shadowing-contour brush, place in outer "V," by going to the outer corner of eye working shadow down to lash line at 45 degrees and back to corner and work 1/3 of the way in along your crease drawing shadow up (following curve of brow bone but keeping brush along the crease.)
-BLEND blend blend!
- Take a clean shadow brush and use a highlight (I use NYX 02 "White), and apply to brow bone and underneath outer corner as well as inner corner).
-Take shadow lining pencil and take same deep purple we used in outer "V" and line the top 1/3 (upper) lash line and connect it to outer corner/quarter of lower lash line.
-Take a light shimmery purple and line inner lash line of top and bottom.
-Take sparkly silver shadow and place in tear duct and inner crease line (2/3rds way in).
- Take liquid liner (I use NYX "Jet Black" Felt Tip Liner) and place upper lash line (from outside corner of eyeball to outer wing).
- Take boom-boom mascara (I use Lancome Fatale for drama-mama!) and apply to TOP only going thicker on outer lashes.
-I use a light pink Creme Sheen glass from Mac for my lips (not to overpower eyes) in "Fashion Scoop".

WOW. That was so confusing, I'm sure. And it is really easy! I will do a tutorial to make it clearer if y'all want!

Love you!
