It’s Been a While…

Wow! I can’t believe that it’s been so long since my last blog post. Right after my last post, I wound up getting sick :-( It took me longer than I wanted to fully recover. Then I just got busy with Life and it seemed like I never had enough time to give my blog the attention it deserved. I’ve been working hard to make time for it since I do love it. 

Here’s  a short update on what I’ve been up to the past couple months:

~ Finsihed Turbo Fire program :-) I will have a blog post on the last day and a general review of what I thought of it and how it worked for me coming soon.

~ Sneaker Head campout in Berkeley. This was such an interesting couple days.

~ Celebrated Seppe’s preschool graduation and chaperoned Gio’s End of the Year 1st Grade Picnic. I now have a kindergartner and 2nd grader :-)

~ Went to the SF Zoo for the first time with our very good friends. 6 hours of walking around can be very tiring!

~ Two camping trips – one week apart. If you follow me on Instagram (msmammamia) you can see all the beautiful sunrises I posted from our second camping trip. 

~ Completed the 5DSD: I will have a blog post that summarizes my first time with the 5DSD.

~ Started the 30DayAbChallenge with Sophie and a whole bunch of other girls :-) Follow me on Twitter @Mia_Butterfly for all my check-in videos. Follow Sophie @sophiehowl27 and Susan @stronglikesusan for the challenge info. This is such a great challenge that really work your abs!

~ Still training for my first Half Marathon. I’m up to 11.5 miles :-/ 

~ Completed Bikini Series Challenge and entered in the contest. Sadly, I wasn’t a winner of the amazing prizes, but I did win a much bigger prize :-) A body I can rock a bikini in along with the confidence to rock it and a wonderful community that supports me every day.  It’ my one year anniversary with Tone It Up!! I’ve been working on a page about my journey with them. Hoping to have it up soon. There will be lots of Before and After pics :-)

 

So I do have a lot coming :-) I’m thinking of doing a special giveaway to celebrate my 1 year of being part of the Tone It Up family. It has really changed my life and is such a big part of my life now. This past year has been absolutely amazing for me. I’ve done so many things that I never thought I could and I’ve had so much fun. Every part of my life has become better and I am truly happy. I’ve met so many wonderful people who inspire, motivate and support me. And I want to Thank those of you who have taken time to read my blog. Stay tuned for more info on the Giveaway :-)

Let me know what kind of things you’d like for the Giveaway. Going to get to bed earlier than usual so I can tackle a long run tomorrow :-)

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 :-)

“Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful” ;-)
