Walmart Haul

image

Picked these up recently and they are all re-fills EXCEPT for the salon perfect lashes and lipstick.  The eyeliners & mascara & powder are my makeup bag staples.  LOVE the products, the colors and the way it wears all day.

The lashes have purple and black lashes that were made to compliment brown eyes (my eye color).  So I’m excited to try it out for new years!  It also comes with a purple eye liner so let’s see if it brings out the brown~ =)

Color Whisperer lipstick is my faaaaave right now.  These lipsticks go on as smooth as lip butters (which i love).  These don’t last very long so you have to keep reapplying throughout the day, but I love the color, amount of pigment it leaves, and the feel of them on my lips!

Got my hair diiiid yesterday.  I’m still in total shock…but I’m sure I’ll get used to it.  I chopped off about 8 inches.  As soon as the stylist make the first cut, I wanted to take it all back and run away.  *sigh *

I haven’t had short hair since…high school?  I can’t even REMEMBER!!  Luckily my hair grows pretty fast so I’m hoping it’ll be the length I want by Spring.

One really great part of this haircut is that ALL my bad/dead/damaged hair is gone.  My hair feels thicker, healthier and just…brand new.  I’m really grateful for that…now I just need to learn to stop coloring my hair!

Lucy Blair <3

Do you believe in engagement anniversary presents???  CAUSE THE BLAIRS DO!!!

Meet our new baby…Lucy Blair!

I’ve been DYYYYING for a new puppy and for about 7-8 months~ Markel and I researched puppies/doggies online at all nearby shelters.  We looked at a number of shelters in our city, but couldn’t find one that would suit our apartment + the fact that we work all day.  God was seriously smiling down on us because it was a total miracle that we knew someone giving away teacup maltipoo puppies!!!  It was the biggest treat and we did our research, went to visit the puppies with a vet friend, and chose the one that called out the most to us. =)

Lucy is the sweetest little pup~~  She has a funny personality and LOVES to sleeeeep.  If you leave her alone for 30 seconds, she’s already snoring away and dreaming about catching something.  LOL  She barks a little in her sleep and her paws twitch like she’s running~ it’s SUPER ADORABLE.

We are SO IN LOVE with our new fur baby.  I can’t believe it took us so long to get one!!  Here is an obnoxiously LONG puppy collage of the most ADORABLE photos of our new baby.  We’re in the process of potty training her~ so that might take a few weeks.

Here is the ridiculously obnoxiously long collage of photos =)

Going Out Makeup

I’m sure you can tell from this picture below but…I’ve got a LOT of makeup on.  =P  This is my “going out” routine~~ a heavier hand with everything from my day look (post here) and a nice bright lipstick to top off the look.  In this picture below, it’s a rare day that I curled my hair and attempted to style it.  Lately it doesn’t want to listen to me…>.<  This is also the hair that I dyed light brown & platinum blonde…but was stubborn enough to stay black/brown.  *shaking fist *

Markel and I went to his friend’s birthday dinner last Saturday and here’s the makeup from the night.  In my younger 20s, I used to wear fake eye lashes to EVERYTHING…but I’ve been getting lazy.  Perhaps my next big night I’ll do my signature double lashes look. =P

Purses, Purses, Purses

I have purses on the brain!!  I want a big one for my 30th birthday but I’m not sure what I want the next one to be… Here are some I’m lusting after…

Target Haul

Picked up some oldies and some new items from Target.

Oldies:

Revlon Photofinish foundation in 004 Nude (my new fave)

Rimmel Natural Bronzer in Sun Shade

New Products to Try:

Cover Girl chubby stick in 002.  A Sheer pink that I like for summer.  I wish it had a little more pigment, but then again…it wouldn’t be sheer right?

2 new Revlon nail colors: Dark Pink and White

Foundation brush for my mama who just got into using foundation.  She normally uses a foundation stick and her fingers.  But after getting her makeup done at the wedding, she’s a new believer in using a foundation brush!  It really helps create a flawless finish (I think).

Ombre Hair

Now that the wedding is over, I’m actually ready to go back to Ombre hair!!  Especially with the summer around the corner…it would be a fun way to begin the season! =)

Wedding Makeup and Hair (trial…and ideas)

A few weekends ago, I was in a wedding and I tried out one hair-style that I really loved.  I am really considering it for my wedding!

I love how the hair cascades and frames my face, but the rest is up in a formal up-do.  My make-up below is done by myself, but i”ll be getting it professionally done on the day of.  What do you think?  Is it a wedding-do?

Markel and Me are Moving!

I have a feeling that I might be late on updates for the next week or two (or perhaps until after the wedding…*sigh ).  But last weekend Markel and I got our new keys to our FAB pad.  We rented a uhaul and moved all day Sunday (and most of this week).  It’s such a pain to move and I can’t believe how much STUFFFFFFFF we have.  It’s actually kind of sick…

Anyway, here are some pics from Sunday.  We aren’t nearly done doing much of anything: decorating, painting, buying furniture, tossing junk we brought over…etc.  But for now, all the boxes have been moved in and it’s just a matter of unpacking.  Once the place gets all settled I’ll post some pics!

Gorgeous Outfits from Pinterest

I don’t know about ya’ll, but I shop the most in the spring/summer months because…well the clothes are cuter!  In the winter I LIVE in my northface jacket and Uggs.  I don’t get creative with accessories or hair and I just try to weather the cold inside with hot soups and movies in bed ❤

But when the weather gets warm, it’s like my inner self wakes up and is ready to try new trends, experiment on combinations, and well…be outside more!  Here are some outfits I’m loving right now.  (from where else but Pinterest!)

Nude Lips

I don’t normally buy nude lipsticks/lip glosses~ but I love Revlon products~ so I’m going to try and pick this set up the next time I’m at Target!

Giuliana and Bill Rancic Having a Baby!

I am SO FREAKING EXCITED for them!!!  After all their infertility, breast cancer, chemo, drama…

https://i0.wp.com/www.usmagazine.com/uploads/assets/articles/51698-giuliana-and-bill-rancic-having-a-baby/1334949413_bill-giuliana-rancic-467.jpg

They know the baby’s sex but aren’t revealing it yet.  The Rancic’s are having the baby via surrogate since it’s been quite difficult for them to conceive naturally (the baby is 100% theirs).  Congratulations Rancic’s!  You deserve the absolute best ❤
