Bad News...(Depending How You Look @ It)

Written By Spicy P @ 2:23 PM 6 Thoughts
Ok kids...sad to say that I had to sell out...I'm no longer a Blackberry girl, now I'm a HTC Glacier girl...

Ms. Marsha from has been talking to me non stop about how wonderful her Droid was. I didn't want to believe it! The Blackberry is the shit right? WRONG. I ran to my nearest T-Mobile to pick up the latest droid which was the Mytouch 4G and low and behold I fell in love!

What you can do on the Blackberry, you can do on the Droid! Not only that the OS is 50 years AHEAD of the Blackberry. Anything is possible with the Droid. I am only pissed I didn't find it sooner! So not only did Mrs. Marsha open up my eyes she also spent countless hours helping me hack into it (the way you would jailbreak an ipod) so now I have a "rooted" droid and I am in love...

I never thought I'd be happy to say "I sold out"...but then again? I'll never turn back! It's time for better and new things and this was definitely a good choice for me :)

Primers, Where Have You Been All My Life?

Written By Spicy P @ 10:12 AM 0 Thoughts
P-R-I-M-E-R-S

Hey Kids :)

Today's lesson are Primers! Where have they been all my life? I know a lot of ladies, don't truly understand primer's and their function in creating a flawless and beautiful face! So Spicy P is going to explain it too you. The information I'm going to give to you is not scientific, not copies from any website and is solely from my own experience, which I think is often the best advice to give. Like I said before, I trust a man's opinion about makeup as much as I trust their opinion on what strength tampon is best for light flow days!

What are primers?

Primers are essential to a flawless and smooth face, they often contain 'cones' i.e Silicone's or Dimethicone's which actually smooth out wrinkles and give a smoothness to the face that otherwise is not there. Just imagine a painter starting to paint on a blank white canvas, how smooth and even the color's show as opposed to a painter who starts to paint on a dirty canvas, the colors are not so smooth and you can still see the imperfections on the canvas regardless of how much you try to cover them up.

Primers basically give your face a smooth surface, so smooth that your makeup just glides right on. With a primer, it turns your concealer into a powerhouse, instead of packing on concealer to cover that one stubborn spot, the primer has already filled it in and smoothed it out so you actually save money on your makeup and concealer instead of piling it on!

You can definitely see the difference in those women who use primers, their face has that almost perfect "airbrushed look" Then again, you don't have to take my word for it. Stop by your local Sephora and pick up a sample :)

Look at the below picture - here are the primer's I HAVE USED and I'll review today. Let's start with the far right and work our way to the left!


Monistat Chafing Gel, $7.00 - (Blue Tube) / Don't even go there! I KNOW, Monistat? Girl are you crazy? When you think of Monistat you think of yeast infections! Why would you put that line on your face? Well first of off its a chafing gel! Its for those large people whose thighs may rub together when they walk? You sooth this gel on the thigh to ease the irritation...but then again, others say? This is a EXCELLENT facial primer? Word? I just had to try it out for myself!

It works almost as well as my favorite primer? But I think I have a high sensitivity to dimiethicone so it broke me out something awful, but I can't knock the ladies for trying to save money! Try it, if it works for you and doesn't break you out? Go for it!

Make Up For Ever HD Primer #4, $32.00 - (Brown Bottle) Now this is a color correcting primer, honestly, I was expecting a bit more from a primer, it didn't smooth out as well as my favorite primer but you know what I found this is good for? I don't use it as a primer anymore but as a tinted moisturizer! You know when you are late for work and don't have time for foundation? I use this gem as a light foundation because the tint matches my tone very well. As a primer, I'd have to give it a boo, but as a substitute for foundation? I'd have to give it a YAY!

*******************************************
Smashbox Photo Finish Light, $36.00 - (White Fluid)
Smashbox Photo Finish, $36.00 - (Clear Fluid)
*******************************************


These primers? Are my all time favorites and the shizzitlebambizzle! Bamsnizzle! You get my drift. To me? These are the Mecca's of primers! They have two versions, Photofinish and Photofinish Light. Photofinish light is just more for oily and acne prone skin. So if you have sensitive skin, I would get a sample of the Light version but either way you can't go wrong.With my Smashbox primers, I use less makeup trying to acheive that flawless "airbrushed look' my makeup glides on so smooth and its so easy! Just put it on before your foundation with a foundation brush and wait a few minutes then apply your foundaton!

If you didn't have smooth and even skin before? Bet your last dollar you will have it now!

MAC - All Matte, $18.00 - (Clear MAC Tube) - I'm not even sure if this could qualify as a 'primer' I use it only for my oily T-Zones, it mattifies to a degree but its not going to stop oil in its tracks but it does help. It doesn't work at evening out the skin as well as the Smashbox, but if you want to curb oil about maybe 10%? Pick up the all matte!

Ok ladies, I'm pressed for time, the last to products are a Too Faced and a Sue Devitt primer that I don't have time to review, they are not that great anyway. So you have my prime 'primer' picks LOL hopefully this helped you, if it did leave a comment or suggestion if you have any primer tips of your own.

Since I'm at work, I guess I better get back to it!

What's Up?

Written By Spicy P @ 9:43 AM 7 Thoughts
Hey Kids!

Sorry I haven't been blogging much lately but that was another question I had wanted to ask you guys. This blog first started out as a Blackberry haven, a place for me to post my bb housings and themes, and to be frankly honest? With all this theme DRAMA still going on? I'm kinda through! I'd rather be on my knees than on a keyboard (if you get my drift)

So anyway, are you guys even at all interested in my beauty bloggin? Since I started spending so much moolah on this stuff, I've discovered a bunch of tips and hidden secrets that I could share with you all (if your interested in that kind of thing) Plus I have acquired a ton of stuff that I probably used 1 of and want to toss...Like a Coastal Scents 88 eyeshadow palette. I probably dipped my brush into one shadow and now I don't want the palette anymore so I guess that is considered used!

Yesterday, I went to MAC and bought some palettes and experimenting with those, but I have so much stuff I bought that I could review but then again, you guys may just be interested in my themes and slave labor! HAHAHA!

Sometime in the future, I could see myself going back to themeing but you guys it is SO time consuming! For the people who have a new theme on their blog every other day? TRUST, they ain't got nothing else better to do! On average? It takes me a couple of weeks to customize a theme! So as much as I want to get back into it, I'm running short on time!

Now that my baby is taking more time off work to spend with me (poor man, he works 12 hours a day and finally decided to use some of his vacation time) we have more time to spend together and I am loving it! As a matter of fact we are going to the 49'er vs Raider game in San Francisco this Sunday! YAY!

So anyway, I do have quite a few themes I started but didn't finish so I'm going to ease back into it and finish those themes...but you know what would help? If I had PHOTOSHOP! But I am NOT spending $400 on that fuckin program! Do you know how many thongs I could buy with $400?????

Well anyway, ever since I logged into the FTM site, I fell in love! Ms. Marsha is truly talented! Hers is the FIRST theme I have ever downloaded to my phone since I started making my own, and this theme that I'm rocking right now? I've been using for the past month! With a flick of a button you can make the bottom dock disappear and reappear and you can do the same for the weather icon. Best of both worlds! I can change it to a blank screen to a bottom dock! Woot.

So anyway, let me know what you think about my beauty bloggin. I'm thinking about making some youtube video's and putting them on here anyway. You know, some tutorials to help those that are new to makeup learn the basics :)

Screenie for today:

What would you like as a free giveaway?

Written By Spicy P @ 10:19 PM 9 Thoughts
Hi Kids,

So as of lately, my shopping is reaching a frenzied pitch (as a FYI, I don't spend money I can't afford to save! Whatever I spend? I put twice as much into my piggy bank :) My motto? If you are going to spend like your rich? Also SAVE like your rich!

But in a way I guess is good for all of you! I actually wanted your opinion on what interests you?

For example, I have extra new bottles of MAC Oil Control Facial Lotion, dozens of home fragrance oils from the Yanke Candle Company & Bath & Body Works, Lotions, Creams & Fragrances from Bath & Body Works, ect...

So as far as the giveaways go...out of the above, if you were to win? What would you like to have? Or it can be a free premium theme? Who knows! The more I keep experimenting with makeup & difference products the more stuff I accumulate and better to let SOMEONE use it than for it to sit in my closet, especially if its new!

What do you think?

Beauty Haul!

Written By Spicy P @ 8:17 PM 2 Thoughts
Hi Kids!

I hope everyone is ready for the weekend!

So I'm going to start doing 'Beauty Haul's' like they do on youtube. I'm not sure exactly what a beauty haul means to them but to me? It means I just 'hauled my ass down to the nearest store to buy some more stuff'!'

So let's begin! Everything you see here? Is from Sephora.com, eBay & Coastalscents.com.

Sephora Brush Box Set, $35


I'm not sure about you ladies but I have NEVER invested in a brush box! This little beauty comes in either burgundy, black, or white. It has a velvet inside liner that is very soft to the touch. It comes with 3 compartments so you can organize your brushes according to how you use them. You may have face brushes in one, eye brushes in another and pencils in the last. It's SUCH a time saver! I was hesitant on spending $35 for this but I'm so glad I did!

 Coastal Scents Professional Camouflage Concealer, $17
Coastal Scents 88 Warm Palette, $25


So, I have heard amazing reviews watching youtube tutorials on the quality of Coastal Scents shadows that are relatively inexpensive! I concur ladies! These shadows are of really good quality, considering the price! I HIGHLY recommend the concealer palette! This palette has shades that are excellent for use as a eye primer...I'm debating on whether or not they are beating out my MAC Paint Pots....Hmmm!

NARS Exhibit A Blush, $26, 
Stila Champagne Glow Eye Shadow Trio, $32



OMG, ladies! This Exhibit A Blush from Nars? Is NO Joke! It looks hard, it is an extremely bright red that you think would not look good on brown skinned ladies but don't let the color fool you. This is a BOMBSHELL for our skin tones! It looks absolutely LOVELY! I can't rave enough about this blush! It's such a beautful color on brown skin tones - wait...did I just have a blush orgasm?

Stila? This is my first product from them and I'm in love with the line, the shadows are so shimmery and semi sheer that you can do a semi neutral look for work, bring this out of your purse and rev your eyes up for a night on the town!

So all in all? I'm extremely happy with the purchases I've bought (so far - we all know I have more on the way :) I'll review them for you once they arrive)

P.S. The NYX white looking pencils? I bought these on eBay for I think $2.50 each. A great buy for a great product! These are eye pencils and I use them as a eyeshadow base, eyeshadow by itself, inner crease highlights and brow highlights! I will definitely stock up on more! The cheapest alternative to a beautiful look!

If you have any questions, please leave a comment. I'm actually on www.wowsocool.com getting some more nail stamping supplies :)

Have a good weekend!

Glowing Review = Origins, DIE SLOW = Ulta.com

Written By Spicy P @ 12:09 AM 0 Thoughts
Hi Kids,

So if you follow me on twitter you know I have money to burn. I set aside about $1200 bucks just to spend spend spend! (ahem, yea my baby has no idea about it, not even questioning where his new EVO came from lol he makes twice as much as I do so I have NO CLUE how he hasn't figured it out lol but as long as I pay our rent & bills on time he doesn't seem to care = LUCKY ME)

Anyway, I have been SHOPPING! Origins, Mac, Sephora, Nordstrom's, Follica.com & Ulta.com...so lets start out with my review of ulta.com and how I hope they slowly burn in hell!.

So I'm a big hair girl, I love to keep my locks looking nice and I spare NO expensive when it comes to my hair! So I decided to finally order a Sedu 1 1/2 Tourmaline flat iron. They say retail its almost $300, but constantly 'on sale' for $130. So I went to ulta.com and bought that, some Urban Decay, Peter Roth & Two Faced products. The total came to around $300. No biggie! So I PAY for the item...after I put in my credit card number...BOOM the screen asks me to put it in AGAIN!

WTF? I call my credit card company to see if there were any pending debits? YES, from Ulta.com for $317.48. I call Ulta.com and say, "What the hell? You took over $300 from my account but I never received a confirmation of my order or even an acknowledgment saying that I was ever on your site'. After about 15 minutes of trying to find my account. (I swear the girl sounded so blond I could imagine her twirling her hair around her fingers). She said she saw no record that I had ever spent any money.

So I popped a Midol and calmly asked to speak to a manager. What did the manager say? 'Even though our side may not show that you made a purchase, clicking the submit button will always create a 'authorization' and the money will be deducted. The only thing I can tell you is to try again and see if it goes through.'

I shit you not, that is what she said! "So you want me to give you another $300 to HOPE it goes through?" She said 'Well hopefully it does, in the mean time it will take 3-4 business days for your money to be returned to you.' While she's talking? I'm not even really listening, I'm just thinking about how I WISH when I bought my glock they would have given me a license to carry...

So I hang up the phone, after telling her EXACTLY what I thought of ulta.com and how I was going on a mission to let people know the service they can expect to receive when they shop at their site!. Oh well!

So on to a GLOWING REVIEW!

 Origins 'Night-A-Mins' $36, Origins 'Super Charged Moisture' $36


After that experience, I went to origns to stock up on some more moisturizer. I LOVE their line but was sadly dissappointed with the 'Super Charged' Moisturizer (white bottle). I'm naturally oily and this moisturizer left me feeling dry and oily at the same time which is why I only used it at bedtime and NEVER before my makeup!

So I went to their site before going to the store and saw WONDERFUL 5 STAR reviews on their 'High Potency Night-A-Mins' Here is a excerpt from the Origins site...


"Let the hypnotic aromas of nature’s nightcaps summon the sandman. Newly-formulated with extra vitamins (including B-complex, C, E and A), extra minerals and exfoliating extracts, this mega moisture cream fortifies skin’s own nocturnal nature to help it repair damage done by day and rebuild itself to face tomorrow. Worn out cells are gently released to reveal brighter, more youthful texture and tone. Skin awakens rested, renewed and richly replenished. How to use: Sweep over face and throat at bedtime."

This stuff is amazing! I just used it for the first time 30 minutes ago and I am SUER impressed! It was a thick creamy texture (a little goes a long way) it went on Matte and stayed matte! I don't have that dry, pinched feeling to my face and not ONE drop of oil or shininess! I am unbelievably impressed by this product and highly recommend it to anyone who has a very oily face before washing and a very dry and pinched face after washing. I'd definitely go out and get this product!

My Face & Makeup Regimen :)

Written By Spicy P @ 9:45 PM 4 Thoughts

Hi Kids,

So I promised my beautiful twitter ladies that I would post my daily & weekly skin care regimen and the wonderful makeup products I use to keep face looking flawless! And of course I jog and do sex aerobics to keep my body bangin! But I’m not going to give a tutorial on the last part…hehehe….

So let’s start with the face…shall we?

Daily Face Regimen

 
Origins ‘Mint Wash’ $26, Juice Beauty ‘Blemish Clearing Serum’ $29, 
Origins ‘White Tea Skin Guardian’ $45

Exactly in that order. I wash my face and then I use the blemish clearing serum because it is an EXCELLENT mattifier! I don’t have a blemish problem but around 2pm? I’m oilier than a bucket of fried chicken! I so LOVE my Origins line! I have experienced such a change in my skin! Especially since I started using the ‘White Tea Guardian’ it basically protects your face from harmful outside elements such as smoke, pollution and other nasty things that can cause premature aging. I swear buy this stuff! But at $45? It BETTER work! And it does!


Origins ‘Brighter By Nature – Brightening Peel $55

Is similar to an acidic peel but cheaper. This bottle of 40 pads will run you around $50 but it’s so worth it. Week by week I literally see years fade away from my face. At least it seems that way. My pores have shrunken, I have a healthy glow to my skin and I’m able to retain moisture longer than I ever have before. I use 1 pad once weekly.

These last two weekly products are two masks that I alternate on a weekly basis, both are excellent and will run you about $30 each I believe.


Make Up Regimen

For us sista’s it is SO hard to find a color match! I have settled for MAC for years because I didn’t want to spend any more money trying anything else out. And I sure didn’t want to go to the Fashion Fair line and wind up looking like a corpse! x_x…So I did a hop, skip & and a jump to Sephora, and behold. I found my exact match with the Make Up For Ever line….and that’s not all…


Make Up For Ever HD Primer $32, Make Up For Ever HD Foundation $40, 
MAC Brush #187 $42, MAC Fix+ $20

I use my #187 brush and use a ‘stippling’ method (you tube, people, YOU TUBE) to apply my primer and foundation. The primer is excellent, it smoothes out the skin and basically hides any imperfections creating the perfect glow in preparation for your foundation. I have to say the Make Up For Ever’s foundation exceeded my expectations! It gave me sheer/full coverage (if that’s possible) after using the stippling method; I had an ‘airbrushed’ look to my face, for the first time? I honestly couldn’t tell I was wearing makeup! I’m not going to go into details but the MAC Fix+ is an invigorating water mist that I spray on my face before applying the foundation and primer.


Make Up For Ever Camouflage Concealer #4 $32, Urban Decay Primer Potion $26, 
MAC Pot Concealer $20 each (I think?)

This is pretty self explanatory, every lady has their weird way of applying their eye primers and concealers, and I’m no exception!


Make Up Forever HD Powder $16 (Travel Size), Smashbox Blush Rush $26, MAC Blush $26?, MAC Brush #182 $47

Since I’m using the primer and foundation from MUFE, I’m using their corresponding HD powder; don’t let this white powder fool you ladies! It goes on sheer and is an excellent mattifier! Gotta have the blush! Smashbox all the way! And I am in LOVE with my MAC #182. It’s more of a buffer and I use it for powders but I have another brush for my blush.


And here are the rest of my goodies! My Sephora eyeshadow palette, my MAC pot shadows, MAC blush in Raizen, MAC powders & foundations and my coveted collection of MAC brushes, I only use MAC brushes and will continue to do so unless I find something better.

Before the year is over, I may transition my shadows and Blushes from MAC to Nars so the basics that WON’T change. The basics for my face go to MUFE, my face regimen goes to Origins, my brushes? For now go to MAC.

Hope you guys enjoyed this little synopsis on how I make up my face!

Nighty night!

I'm Sorry Cami....

Written By Spicy P @ 9:39 AM 20 Thoughts
That I didn't call your fake ass out sooner...don't dish it out if you can't take it! Since I don't think your ballsy enough to come to Antioch, California I'll berate you on my blog. Or if you want to give me your telephone number, I'll do it over the phone or if your ever in the area, come find me :)

Let me make a few things clear. I don't like you. You are a shady bitch that needs to be neutered. Maybe you'll stop yakin and barkin at the kiddies. You don't offend me, but your extremely fat ass does. But that's neither here or there.

I wasn't going to say shit about you. I wasn't going to open my mouth UNTIL I started talking to themers...I don't even know some of these other people but why in the hell are you picking on kids? Someone should call CPS on your ass. Let me be on the jury.

If your closer to 30 you are older than me and that I don't get. I'm not going around picking on youngin's just because I'm fat, ugly, haven't seen my vajayjay in years, and having a bad day! The only bitch that's in my line of fire is (you and your fat ass backup dancers - your xanax poppin cronies)

I'm tired of hearing themer's give up their blogs and their skills because you have launched a personal attack on KIDS and anyone who isn't down with 'Team Cami'.

BITCH PLEASE!

I have nothing more to say about you. In the scheme of things you are a nobody and I'm just here to reiterate that fact. You can retaliate on me on your blog that's cool. Just make sure to say that Spicy P is an excellent lover, cook, and fellatio giver! I can give you lessons. I know big girls only have a few weapons in their arsenal and I know most of them are good dick suckers. (If you want to be honest)

(I hope this serves as retribution for those who have been wronged, you can get on with your life and back to themeing. I don't need anybody to stick up for me. I'm not apart of a team effort. This is my sole opinion and the only reason I'm expressing it because I don't give a fuck what anybody has to say about me)

Cuz that ho can go choke on a twinkie :)

Rant - Ramblings - Scallywags

Written By Spicy P @ 2:33 PM 15 Thoughts
Hi Kids,

So I dropped my pinkberry in water...yea yea...and that was AFTER I dropped my phone 20ft from our 2nd story balcony. The side keys started going out and it was a mess. I decided NOT to change the housing on this berry. Honestly? Different color housings are great but they never did fit quite right. Unless you buy the housing from RIM directly it's not going to feel like it should. The housing that is standard feels like a 'second skin' compared to the housings that you can buy and apply yourself.

Here is my 'new 9700'. I think I'll name him Antonio after my boyfriend. Sort of looks like a dude, doesn't it?



 I fully support still buying your own housings as opposed to buying from colorware (fascists bastards). But I don't support all of these lame ass theme clubs AND especially this Wallpaper club and I'd for sure bitch slap a few people if I could get within a few feet of them.

Speaking of pistol whippin ho's, especially this extremely fat girl biting the name of one of my favorite rap superstars (Chamillionaire - aka Camilitary) ho, you ain't foolin nobody!

New Theme Coming Soon...

Written By Spicy P @ 5:23 PM 6 Thoughts
Hi Kids,

So amazingly enough, my blog has a LOT of traffic, most times a minimum 500 hits and maximum of almost 2,000 hits per day which is bizarre since I don't post very often and I only have two theme links on my blog, but whatever, The More The Merrier! Anyway, I KNOW I've been slacking on making bb themes. Eh, its just not on my top priority list. Why should I slave 15 hours making a theme when you guys are joining these ridiculous and ridiculous, and ridiculous theme clubs? You know why? Because I LIKE you guys lol. So Yes, I WILL make a new theme for you guys very soon and of course it will be free. I just need some ideas. If you have any particular type of theme in mind let me know. I'm kind of sick of Hello Kitty so eh trying to get away from that.

My New Obsession...

Written By Spicy P @ 6:56 PM 11 Thoughts
Hey Kids,

If you follow me on twitter you already know that I have been looking for a way to slim down my thighs. As far as stats, I'm 5'11 @ 145lbs. Already slim but I wanted to slim down the thigh area and put some muscle into it. So after doing research on the MOST effective exercises, I found that jogging/running is the best for a all over workout.

Hi Kids,

So I was pressed for time and trying to do a million quick 'beauty' things before I go to bed. I always go out of my way to look 'my best' for work. Anyway, I DON'T like this look...it's too zebra'y...(I know that's not a word lol) I only posted it because this is the first time I've ever stamped my nails and didn't like the outcome. (and if your worrying about the extra paint around the nails & skin, it washes off with your morning shower) :D

Oh well, I'll re-do them tomorrow night.

My Darling In Pink....

Written By Spicy P @ 4:30 PM 4 Thoughts
Hey Kids!

As you know, I have put up several of my housings for sale. I have sold my white housing and that left me with 6 left. So for the first time I decided to put on a dark pink housing I've had for months but never really liked the color. But now? I can't stop looking at it! It's more like a hot pink/with hints of purple. Simply gorgeous!

So I took pictures of the steps I took for you guys, so you can see exactly what's involved in doing a housing change. Very simple and very quick once you get used to it.

Before anything was changed....

Removing the bezel and keypad...
Replacing the keyboard...

And She's Done!

Squaretastic! For the 9600 & 9700!

Written By Spicy P @ 2:33 PM 14 Thoughts
Hi Kids,

So I must admit I spent numerous hours on this theme. I went through everything step by step and customized it. This is by far one of my favorite themes! It has 10 scrolling dock icons that lift up when selected. It is also hidden today. When you hook your berry to a charging port the battery meter will display a heart to let you know its charging. Enjoy!

As always, leave a comment if you like it! And if you want to help me buy another bottle of Excedrin you can leave a donation :)

Goodies for sale!

Written By Spicy P @ 6:03 PM 0 Thoughts

Hi Kids!

I don't know why I've been holding on to all this stuff but my boyfriend told me he's tired of tripping over my blackberry stuff so I'm selling it! As you can see there are housings, skins and two phones.

A MINT condition 8320 & 8900 with colored housings that I put on. Take a look at the other housings, I have 9700 housings and 8900 housings in the picture. Make me an SERIOUS offer! Each housing goes for $30-$50 on their own and the phones are in mint condition. FYI - There are NO scratches on the LED screens! I have a protective cover over both phones!

All these goodies will be shipped from the San Francisco - Bay Area in California.

Email me spicypeppermints@gmail.com. Let me know your offer and lets see what we can do!

Thanks!

"Squaretastic" A new free theme?

Written By Spicy P @ 3:06 PM 14 Thoughts
Hey Kids,

So here is another one I created. Such cute icons! They are little squares that have little indicators on what they are, i.e. an alarm clock, mail symbol. The theme is a hidden today scroll dock with icons that lift up. Let me know what you think. If you guys like it I'll work on it for the next few days. If you don't? I'll toss it :)

Kitty N Pink V4 - Now for Sale

Written By Spicy P @ 2:22 PM 3 Thoughts
Hi Kids!

So I received a few emails asking me when I was going to release this theme. I'm happy you guys like it! So here is what I will do, this theme is only an extension of V3 so if you already have V2 or V3 it's only $1. If you haven't purchased either version the theme is $3. Which is always a good deal.

Thank you all for your support!

Blackberry Housing F.A.Q's

Written By Spicy P @ 8:15 PM 11 Thoughts
Hi Kids!

Changing your housing can be a fun experience! I'm here to guide you and answer your questions. I've gotten a TON of emails regarding housing questions. So I will give a brief introduction to how to properly select blackberry 9700 housing and my own personal opinions. Your other option? Pay $200+  for a company to paint your housing for you, then slap you in the face by putting THEIR hideous company logo on YOUR phone! What the hell is that!?!

So...to start? It is important to find quality. There are a lot of housings out there that are cheaply made, I know, I tried to save $3 by going to someone other than truesupplier and the bezel broke while I was doing a housing change. Besides, you can kind of tell when you receive the housing whether or not it is decent quality....

I don't know if you can tell by looking at this picture but I bought these housings at truesupplier and they ARE of good quality!

I NEVER change the side rails, EVER! I did it once with my 8320 and bricked my phone. In order to change the side rails you dissemble your berry to the motherboard and it is tricky to re-asemble it. I received an email last night from a follower who had problems with her LED lights after working with the siderails. Again, I DON'T RECOMMEND this! UNLESS you know what your doing. (The side rails are the side parts of your phone that connect around your phone and hold the view part of your camera)

Another CRUCIAL fact (if you have the 9700 Bold) is to buy housing that has the top cover already soldered to the bezel! You do NOT want to solder this yourself (unless you know what your doing) Please, please, please, do NOT apply housing that has the top cover not already attached to your bezel. In these pictures the top cover is already soldered to the bezel.


I am a frequent buyer of truesupplier.com and I was assigned my own rep (Yay) so now I just order whatever I want through her and they solder the top covers on for me.

Now, what I change? The bezel, top cover, bottom cover and battery door. I know you guys want me to make youtube videos and I think I will the next time I do this. I am expecting my housing anyday now so we'll see how it goes. I'd have a hard time explaining how to DO the actual housing because I go through it so fast I couldn't possibly put it into words but maybe a video is the only way that I can do this for you guys.

If you have ANY questions, please leave a comment so I can answer it publicly for everyone who is reading this blog. Don't be too frightened, as you can see? The results are STUNNING!

Hey Kids,

Last night I wanted to rev up my Kitty N Pink theme for my own use so I removed the date and added more mini icons, I also made new unread notifiers, changed the application banner and did a few more tweaks, so here is my screenie :)

*disclaimer* Babe, I love you, you are the most intelligent person I know. You are a respected manager and you leave me evey day wearing the sharpest ties and perfect creases in your slacks. Hell, you even own more suits than I do! But as smart and wise as you are, I have to make fun of you right now lol*
