Motherhood is hard, makeup doesn't have to be.
I simplify makeup for busy moms.

The end of my winter hibernation.


So I took a little break. I needed it for my sanity. But I have really missed you all so I am BACK in full force! I have literally been a bum. Like here I am blogging in my bed..joined by my pug child sidekick…all while rockin a skanktastic ponytail… thing.I haven’t worked since before Christmas and it has been wonderful. I literally did nothing this past week except enjoy doing whatever it was that I WANTED to do. And it was fantastic.I have done some things I think you will be happy about.Ok mainly just one thing, I filmed la weave instructional video! But alas, I am waiting for some other pics I need for the post, so that will come this week.Also, I can’t post NYE pics yet because they are on Chrissy’s camera so as soon as that pretty little girl let’s me steal her pics I wall show you my Kim K dress, ma Carrie lashes, and my BLINGY fantastic shoes!! yayy!I house sat all week for big sissy Billie Jo, and it was great. I love playing in her house! I must admit by Wednesday I was going stir crazy though. I came to this conclusion when I realized I had spent two hours listening to music, and curling my hair. WHAT?! That had to stop, so the next two nights I made girlfriends, and my sissies come entertain me. But the positive of this is that I did master the perfect loose curl. {winky face}Let’s see what else…Oh yeah. I need this shoe. I bought them in black but after critical debate I have decided I will return and get the pink as well.I also got this fancy little lip plumper kit from too faced and am in LOOOOVES with the lipstick. I mean seriously, just look at the bling on top.Tomorrow is my first day back at our new {and thank goodness temporary} office! Should be utter chaos. Sleep tight!!

  17. So curious to see the weave tutorial! Do you use it mostly for added volume or length? Is it hard to put on? Are they pricy? So many questions!!

  28. Jess says:

    Alright SO, here we go:
    1. I have those shoes from Off Broadway in Silva! I looove them but they were kinda hard to walk in for me haha as in I wore them for my girlfriends wedding in October, it was outside and we walked on COBBLESTONE pavement and I almost WIPED OUT as the bridal party was walking out after the ceremony was over THANK GOODNESS I was holding on to my escort a-la groomsmen!!! STILL slightly embarrassing…it could have been the shoes, or it could have been all the champagne we drank prior to getting ready- whatev. BUT, I do love them and would looove to have them in black!! I need to send Mike after those haha (yeah we're better)

    2. I also have the same grey Polo sweatshirt.

    3. I also need your tutorial…I actually watched one yesterday….that I thought was kind of horrible…soooo I have high hopes for yours haha…I mean it was BAD. It also included the poor girl screaming at her doggies in it because they started barking. SHUTTTUP! Kinda scared me.

    4. I know you are actually WORKING today. Hope its a goood day and you hurry up and answer my email. THAAAAAANKS! hahaha <3

  29. Caroline says:

    I laughed when you said you were curling your hair for two hours…that is so me! Just found your blog and I love it! You have a new follower.

  30. Ally says:

    Looks like youve had SO much fun! Love the loose curl 😉

  31. Christine says:
