Update

I know it’s been a long time since I’ve done a makeup tutorial or posted on my blog :-( It gets crazy for me during the holidays. And then I just couldn’t get into a groove with doing videos and blogging.

I also started a new blog all about my Life as a mom and my journey to a Healthy and Fit Lifestyle. That has taken a lot of my time lately because it’s easier for me to write about my life. With Makkeup – there is a lot of prep work. Doing beauty videos and blogs is A Lot of Work! I truly admire those who are able to do it Consistently :-)

I’m not quite sure what I want to do. Part of me wants to combine both of my blogs. But I feel that they are two separate sides of me. I still want to do makeup and fashion posts. I just need to find a way to juggle it with my busy mommy world. I think that I will have a little more time once Seppe starts kindergarten :-) So I might just do my best to post when I can and then really get back to it in August.

I hope that you all understand :-) My family always comes first and even my mommy blog gets put aside for a few days when Life demands a little more from me.

As far as my makeup, shoe and fashion addiction – they are all still going strong :-) Especially the shoes! JustFabulous is just about the most wonderful thing in the world! I have added quite a few shoes since my last shoe post. I think my next post will be an update on my JustFabulous collection.

Box from JustFabulous with Birthday Sale Goodies - 4 pairs of shoes and 2 purses. Couldn't resist BOGO :-)

Just recently got some new Stila and Urban Decay. Stila is my all time favorite makeup line and I used my rewards to get some of their newest items. I got a great deal on Urban Decay makeup on Hautelook. I’ve gotten Stila and Too Faced cosmetics from Hautelook too.  I am so addicted to Hautelook for makeup and workout clothes.

Stila is my Favorite Makeup Line - Latest Haul :-)

Found this exclusive Stila Palette in Vegas at Khardashian Khaos inside the Mirage.

Urban Decay from HauteLook :-)

I’ve fallen in love with Sally Hansen Salon Effects – what I call nail polish stickers :-) I always get so many compliments when I have them on and they are super easy to put on. I picked up an expensive brand of them at a mall while in Vegas – Inoco. I’ll do another post on those later.

Sally Hansen Salon Effects - Lace

For fashion – I have started to really enjoy blazers. It just really polishes off a look and adds sophistication. My favorite trend are colored jeans! I want one in every color but for now I have a pair in my favorite color – red :-) I always feel like I’m behind when it comes to trends but I don’t really care because I wear what I Like regardless of the trend.

Red Blazer from Forever21

Cropped Blazer layered with long flannel and tank.

My Favorite Material Girl Black Blazer

I am still very much following the Tone It Up Nutrition Plan. Health is such an important part of Beauty and my skin and hair have improved greatly now that I am living a healthy lifestyle. Exercise helps give me a natural glow too :-)

Supery comfy TIU top :-)

So I hope that you will stick around. I will have new posts and videos coming soon. And I am also working on doing a give away once I reach 1000 views on my blog to say Thank You to all of you who have been patient and stuck with me :-)

Keeping it Simple

“Less is More.” That’s what I’ve been doing for my daily makeup lately. Being a Stay at Home Mom doesn’t mean that I have unlimited time to do my makeup.  It’s actually the opposite. Time is always my biggest enemy so I’ve been Keeping it Simple. I turn to my favorite: Stila Cosmetics.

Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer

Perfecting Concealer

Stila’s Garden Bliss Set

Stila's Garden Bliss Set

Get a natural and pretty look for Spring with Stila’s new Garden Bliss Set.  It’s worth $109, but it’s only $32! What a great deal!! I snatched this up right away. I love the natural colors of the Garden Bliss Palette. It’s not too light that you look like you have nothing on, but at the same time it’s not too overpowering.  These colors definitely give you a nice natural look. The blush is a powder – different from the travel palettes that come with Convertible Colors.

The set comes in a cute gold makeup bad that has a magnetic closure and folds over. Along with the palette, there is a deluxe sample size of the Glamoureyes Mascara.  If you haven’t tried this mascara out – you should!! It is not clumpy at all and it has a cooling sensation.  It leaves my lashes longer, fuller, and soft – not brittle. A deluxe sample of their Lip Glaze in Grapefruit is also included. This is a very natural pink color. I love Stila’s lip glazes and Guava is a pretty pink. Just throw this set into the lovely gold bag and you’ll be set at any Spring or Summer event.
