One of the fun parts of date nights with my fiancé is the fun of getting ready. I enjoy sitting in front of my vanity and doing my makeup, it’s my “me time” that puts aside all the stresses of the day. I believe it’s necessary for anyone to set a few minutes aside a day for themselves. For me, it’s doing my makeup, or giving myself a manicure.
This is the soft neutral look I did for my date tonight with my beau.
Happy Friday nerds & nerdettes! It’s been a while since my last Friday Favorites, but now seemed like as good of a time as any!
For those new to my blog, “Friday Favorites” is a weekly post about my favorite products from the week! It’s not always makeup or beauty product related it can be anything! This week’s favorites are all makeup & beauty products
Happy Hump Day nerds and nerdettes! I am enjoying this lovely Spring (finally!) weather here in Maryland with my fur nephews Squirt and Salt. It’s been a while since my last post and quite a few things have changed. I am no longer working at Columbia Academy, after working as a preschool teacher for three years I decided it was time to go back to school to finish getting my degree. Unfortunately, my employer and I were not able to come up with a reasonable schedule so I could attend school and work, so I had to do what was best for myself and my future.
I absolutely miss my students and the lovely ladies I have formed a very strong bond with, but I know this is what’s best for me and my fiance. Speaking of the fiance, he recently went back to school to obtain his certificate in his current field so I am super excited that both of us will be back in school!
Now, onto the goodies I have hauled! Continue reading
I know, I know! It’s only September, but with the holidays creeping up I can’t help but feel nostalgic for the upcoming cold weather, family gatherings, lots of wine and baking with my mother and sister! With the holiday season approaching, you know what that means! Lots of limited edition holiday sets from drugstore and high end brands. Continue reading
It’s a hot and sunny Sunday here in Maryland! The fiance and I are half way through our awesome three day weekend of gaming, relaxing and for me, blogging! As I had mentioned in my previous post, I turned our spare bedroom into what my fiance has dubbed “The Fortress of Makeuptude” (Superman reference for any confused readers). I had waited for the day to have my own space where I could have room to store all my awesome makeup and not have it overcrowd our bedroom, so when I say I was super duper excited, it is an understatement!
I’ve had my beauty space now for about a few months and I loooooooove it! I still need a few more home decor pieces but I like the way my vanity has turned out. I wanted to share with you guys my “workspace”, beware though! This post will be picture heavy to say the least!
First off, how the hell are ya guys?! I know it’s been the better part of a century since I’ve posted! Okay so it hasn’t quite been that long, but I could feel that little blogger in me screaming “Post something, ANYTHING!” So here I am alive and mostly kickin’! I guess I should update everyone on my whereabouts and what the hell I’ve been doing with myself.
This past weekend was my oldest nephew’s 4th birthday so I was on the hunt for an awesome gift. While I was out finding his birthday present I also picked up a few items for myself as well :). Every time I go to Walmart or Target I see more of the drugstore brand’s Summer 2012 line and its hard to say no haha. Also, after hitting pan (I couldn’t believe it!) on my favorite bronzer I had to find a replacement.
Here’s my weekend haul…
1. L’ORÉAL Colour Riche Colour Caresse Lipsticks in #172 Blushing Sequin and #176 Sunset Angora
L to R; Blushing Sequin & Sunset Angora (without and with flash)
2. Hard Candy So Baked Bronzer in Tropics
3. Hard Candy Blush Crush Baked Blush in Bombshell and Living Doll
Swatches for bronzer and blushes…
4. Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Timbleberry, Big Daddy, Innocent, and Cream Pink
My camera is not doing justice to the Cream Pink polish, its a cream fuschia with gold shimmer (its so gorgeous!).
