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

This is not a Valentines Post.

Because I have decided I am skipping v-day this year. I do fully intend to drink an entire bottle of wine with my single girlfriends tonight. And I am 100% ok with that. 
{Alright that might be a lie… but regardless we will have a blast.}
1. I went to Med School prom this past weekend, and fell in love. No not with a TD&H (tall dark handsome) swoon worthy MD, but with a bottle of tequila. Umm I realize that I am late on the Bethany Frankel train, but holy lime juice this is hands down my new favorite cocktail. Bonus? 37 calories in each 1 1/2 oz. 
2. I have been getting my ass kicked, and handed to me at Pure Barre. I love it, but I’m feeling it. Next on the list? Must buy lululemon outfit to help create the illusion that I know what I am doing. But then I will be that girl who wears the same thing to every class… alright must buy two.
3. Grammy’s last night. 
a.) Where was Carrie?
b.) not even going to mention Gaga.
3.) Eminem sets ma loins ablaze, and blush in all shades of pink. Have huge bad boy crush. 
4.) I heart Katy Perry. Seriously, how pretty is she. Her skin be flawless. And her bling bra is pretty awesome. 

4. I had a random Carrie Underwood “look alike” comment this weekend from an old man in a bar (somewhat creepy) which got me thinking of my favorite time I have ever been told I resemble her. And in case you didn’t read le bloggy then, you should read it here. It just makes me laugh from sheer awkward embarrassment. 
hahahahahahaha. Oh that one get’s me everytime. 
Anyways, I’m not totally cynical of this day, so have a Happy Valentines day girlies! Love on that man of yours, and make me proud!

    3. Love me some lululemon!
    4. Where WAS Carrie last night? No really, I thought you would be able to fill us in! πŸ™‚

  19. Kerr says:

    enjoy your bottle of vino, I will be doing the same!!

  20. ashley says:

    Everyone needs more than one Lululemon outfit. That is simply a must.

    I must source out the "skinny girl" asap.

  21. Michelle says:

    happy singles awareness day lovebug! i too am attempting to skip today by going to happy hour and following it up with wine and bachelor time with some sisters… ps: i have to curl my adpi best friends hair tonight for her ladies in red vday social and im not sure how?? help! also, while at our miss georgia southern pag the other night there was a girl that looked just like YOU and carrie and I took pics! haha she even sang carrie for her talent! haha

  22. Danielle says:

    I think I had a barbie that wore the same dress as Katy Perry! Seriously, the skirt looks way to familiar.

  23. Mighty Burns says:

    haha I love Em too!

  24. You look ADORBS in that black shirt…SO cute. And I'm thinking now that I'm not pregs anymore I must indulge in this Skinny Girl cocktail-I've been hearing good things, and perhaps can justify that its part of my quest to return to my pre-baby bod?!?

  25. Day Old News says:

    I kind of expected to see Carrie there too, what a bummer! Happy Valentine's Day, girl, and I'll be cheersing you with mah own bottle of vino!

  26. I have never been to Pure Barre but I think it is somewhat similar to the Dailey Method, where everyone wears head to toe lululemon as well. I have two pairs of lululemon pants that I got on their sale rack for $39 each, but otherwise would never have paid $90 for yoga pants!!! In general, I think you can get pretty good yoga pants for good deals at places like T.J. Maxx. But me and my terribly aching back do love my lululemon backpack, that's for sure.

    I did not watch the Grammy's! It's unbelievable. I couldn't. I was buried in work. Also: Eminem is hot, I wanna try that tequila, and I wish Katy Perry didn't get on my last nerve. Enjoy V-Day! I'd be drinking a bottle of wine solo if I didn't have to teach tonight. But my girlfriends and I will be celebrating with cocktails and champagne this coming Saturday!


  27. Laura says:

    1. i posted about that skinny margarita stuff last summer.. OBSESSED!! πŸ™‚ isn't it awesome??? 2. love the sissy's shirt.. and have so much fun.. drink some wine for me πŸ˜‰ 3. YES lululemon will make you feel sexier, look hotter, workout harder, and make your wallet lighter πŸ™‚ hahaha… <3

  28. Caroline says:

    I was sad that Carrie wasn't there last night. And I went to Pure Barre this morning and my legs are still shaking. How many times a week do you go. I need to get a lululemon outfit to fit the part too! πŸ™‚

  29. Michaela says:

    Awh your as pretty as a picture in that…picture πŸ™‚

    Happy Valentine's Day lovely πŸ™‚

  30. Cait says:

    aww so pretty darling girl πŸ™‚ happy vday love!

  31. Sophie P says:

    Katy Perry is Mr Melbs' fave gal! Her lurrrves her. And I totally agree with you, she is such a dolly. Love her make-up/skin/general look, what a beauty!


    P.S. There are sooooooo many cute Aussies out here just waiting to whisk Miss Loulou off her feet! XXX

  32. Mateya says:

    First off…where did your sissy get that shirt. I need it!

    Second. My loins were ablaze last night too…wowsers! Eminem. Yum.

    I am dying for some Lulu too but I had to laugh at your comment about wearing the same thing to every class and it is soooo true! It just must be that good πŸ™‚

  33. Mandy says:

    I love Katy Perry too. Anything she does rocks my socks. Have a great Valentine's with your girls!!

  34. stephanie says:

    I've heard so many people rave about B.F.'s cocktails as soon as I'm not preggo I'm for sure trying one!

  35. Marian says:

    I don't know what it is about Eminem, but he does the same thing to me!! I swear he was in a dream last night…just don't tell the husband;)

  36. CMae says:

    I love Katy Perry but all I could think was she was at the wrong awards show! Dear Katy, You already participated in the Victoria Secret Fashion show—They want their wings back! lol

  37. Jacqueline says:

    You def need two lululemon outfits, mine always inspire me to work out better πŸ˜‰ And hands down Bethenny's mix is the best!!

  38. Mandy says:

    Katy Perry is adorbs! I really don't like this new middle part thing she is doing though…

  39. Ashley says:

    That Carrie story is hilarious! I missed Carrie at the Grammys too!

    Hope you've had a great day!

  40. Hi again! I live in Nashville, and I think she must have missed the Grammy's because her husband made his debut for the Preds (Nashville Hockey Team) Saturday night and she was there! I'm actually going to the game tomorrow night, so I'll be on the lookout for her! And I can't believe you just found out about Skinnygirl! I've blogged about this a gazillion times!!!! It was really hard to find for awhile, so that's probably why you're just now discovering it. It's AMAZING!

  41. English says:

    I lurve Katy's eyeshadow. So purple and sparkly! must have! (and must have somewhere to go where that counts as "OK" to wear)

  42. Oh girl, I have a man and I'm blogging while he's folding clothes. Ha! I had dinner with him and his two rommates. That's how I roll– it's a made up holiday and I would MUCH rather be shown a little lovin' 364 other days in the year and NOT the 14th of February. So go celebrate with the ladies!

    Of course, I'm not THAT cranky.. I did celebrate with my kiddos. πŸ™‚

  43. KtMary says:

    Skinny Girl Margs is the best! Hope that you had a lovely Valentines Day with your girlfans, that's how i spent mine!

  44. Tracy Stage says:

    Eminem is still so hot even after all these years! πŸ™‚ and I totally agree with you on katy perry. She is so gorgeous. I loved her outfit, but it seems like she always has cute blingy outfits! Hope you have a good day girl!

  45. Katie says:

    LOVE the skinny girl margs too..I'm pretty sure I drank 1 too many bottles of that last summer. My teeth started to get sensitive from all the tequila hahaha jk..kinda. You will love Lulu…I am obsesssed!!! πŸ™‚

  46. .:Chelsey:. says:

    Skinny Girl Margs are the bomb girl!!

  47. AndreaLeigh says:

    I want to know what makeup Katy wears, because her skin looks amazing. The coverage is wonderful. She has said in magazines that she has acne but you would never know it.

  48. Beth Dunn says:

    I love the skinny girl drink–yum!

  49. Tricia says:

    I have always wanted to try the Skinny Girl drink, which with your rave reviews, it is definitely a must. Hope you had fun with your gals on V-Day!

  50. CMae says:

    Pinkloulou what item did u inquire about on my page as to if it was sold the comforter or the art?

  51. Virginia says:

    I bet Carrie wasn't there because she couldn't find a dress in time to conceal her pregnancy!! πŸ˜‰ Hope you're having a good week! Virginia
