I posted this pic on insta last week and thought I’d follow it up with a blog.

The last few days I’ve been using the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Blush Palette.  I can’t say enough great things about this palette.  It’s beautiful and ALL of the colors can be used for everyday looks.  I feel like so many palettes are such a waste with colors that you’ll never use and we all know that palettes aren’t cheap… they are definitely an investment.  This one is $45 and worth every penny.  I haven’t seen it in the stores, but it’s available online.

I struggle with foundations and primers.  Skin changes, textures change, etc., etc.  I feel like I’m always changing up my primers and foundations.  I can tell you that ever since Make Up For Ever launched their primer line, I’ve been hooked.  My favorite primer on the market at the moment.

Mascara… this is old news to anyone who reads my blog.  I’m still 100% in love with Benefit Roller Lash.

Two new MAC lip glosses that I’m trying in color “Prrr” and “Desire“.

I’ve linked everything from this picture down below.

Hope y’all had a lovely weekend!  Xo.

ONE

I stopped into one of my favorite little boutiques yesterday, Petal.  Left with this oversized dress… cute and boho.  I think this dress was less than $35.

Just a normal morning of mommy trying to work.  In order for me to get any computer work done, we have to hang out in the office where he’s totally 100% distracted.  If not, he’ll want to pound all over my laptop.  Sources linked below.

FIVE 

I’m missing the snow days!  On Friday we spent the day playing “i spy” with his School Zone Flash Cards (we’ve had these for awhile, but he’s now really showing interest in them) and drinking hot coco.  Praying that we have one more snow before spring.

Love this sweet bride-to-be so much.  You all might recognize her – the ever so talented Blue j Beads.  This girl has a heart like no other – you can read about her business and why she started it here.  She’s getting married to a super cute guy in May and I have the privilege of beautifying Miss Blue j Beads, her family and her stunning bridal party.

Here are some of the prettiest engagement pictures that I’ve ever seen… captured by one of my friends, the lovely, Allison Kuhn Photography.  I loved doing her makeup + hair for this session and I absolutely love these images.
