Hello! I realize it has been 6 years since I last posted on my blog. I completely neglected it and for one reason or another, I decided to look at it and the memories flooded back. Once I had my first son, things went from busy and tired- to never having mommy time at all. So many things happened. Life happened. We've lost special people to us along the way too. Two months after my last post my father in law passed away. I had my second son 3 years later. Then, 6 months later my mom passes away. That happened the semester before I graduated from college with my bachelor's in Rehabilitation. I fell into a horrible depression for long time it seems but I forced myself back up. I enrolled back in school and had my third baby, my daughter, one month before I graduated with my Master's degree in Special Education in 2017. Yes- I've been one very busy mom. So- I have 3 kids now.

The biggest guy holding my baby girl- that's the baby in the previous post. Oh yeah- he is 6 years old now. The little guy to his left- he's so tall but he's just 3. My baby girl, well she is 11 months old but must have been 9 months in this picture. Again, so much has happened since my last post. It'd be impossible to let you in on my life entirely. However, one thing I will tell you is I plan to update this blog. I am obsessed with makeup as I've ever been and I feel like a little bit of life, a little bit of makeup, and a whole lot of love is what this blog was and can still be. I just haven't decided on whether I should mess with it, or make a new one and start fresh. It's been a very long time. I'll let you know in my next blog post....

Meet Baby Junior! =-)

Sorry I haven't been online much lately- I usually get on Facebook or Twitter a little more because I have the apps on my phone but I haven't actually gotten online since I had my baby. I haven't worn makeup or gotten more than 3-4 hours of sleep a night either! So the only thing I can share are a few pics of the new man in my life- my son Junior!! =-D

I made a quick gif with a few pics- if you follow me on Facebook chances are you have already seen these and others. Hopefully once my baby starts getting more zzz's at night things will get a bit easier so that I can start up my makeup and blogging soon. Hopefully everyone has had a great month so far!! =-) Till next time!

Galaxy Nails Pt. 1

My cousin Michelle and I got together to do our nails a couple of weeks ago and she wanted galaxy nails. At first I didn't think I could- but after watching some youtube- I was willing to try and so happy I did. With a sponge tip and some dotting tools- we achieve this awesome nail look!

Colors used in the actually galaxy part with a sponge: coral, white, yellow, blue glitter, and Hidden Treason from Sally Hanson. All of this over a black base and white for the stars with a dotting tool. A thick clear coat and it was done. I cannot describe how shiny and sparkly this galaxies look like in the sun. They were gorgeous. I like them so much she did the same look on my nails- which is the next blog post that will be up soon. Hoped you liked the look- we loved it!! Till next time!!

Panda Nails!!

My best bud Sarahi came over and I did her nails- Pandas!! They were so cute!! We took the pics without cleaning up the edges unfortunately- but they were so worth taking pictures of regardless. I used a neon green from Claire's as the base- two coats to be exact. 

Then, with White Out from Sally Hanson Xtreme Wear I drew on the panda's face and filled it in. With my dotting tools I dotted on black ears, eyes, and a nose. With a tiny dotting tool I gave the pandas some pupils.  One nail got a little messed up- (above) poor panda!!

She loved them and so did I! Hope you did too. =-) Till next time!

Dramatic Purple, Red, & Black!

Hey everyone! As you might have seen- the last blog post was a look I did on my cousin and this is the other eye I did on her. I decided to do something dark and dramatic- something kind of gothy because I haven't done anything like this in such a long time. I used my 120 palette for all the colors except the glitter. 

First off, I applied ELF Eyelid Primer over her entire eye and then NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk to get a good base. Then, I mixed two of the purples and applied them over her entire lid.  I also mixed two different reds to achieve the color that I used from her crease up. I went in very low into her inner corner with this red mix and blended it out to her outer brow as well. Then with another brush I filled in her crease with a black to add definition and a darker hue to the look.

 With LA Splash Proof Sealer on her lid over the purple, I applied Bachelorette Eye Lights from Glamour Doll Eyes all over the lid. It is such a gorgeous glitter!!A super thin liquid liner that was winged and pointy in the inner corner, mascara, and some red and black on the lower lash line. I seriously loved this look! Plus- it's always fun playing makeup with my cousin- she's freakin awesome! Till next time!

Bright Greens W/A Touch of Bright Hues

My cousin Michelle came over yesterday and we played makeup! I haven't really done my own all week except for today but I've posted nothing but neutral looks so I didn't even bother taking pics lol. I decided to do something colorful on her since it was just for play- and I loved it! I did the eyebrows a bit dramatic- but I kind of was going for drama so it went well in my opinion.

How I achieved this- I used the 120 palette over ELF Eye Primer and NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk. I then went for a golden white color in her inner tear duct. Used 3 different yellows in her inner eye, used two different light greens in her middle eye, and used a dark matte green in her outer 'v'. Under neath I used a bright blue, a bright purple, and a neonish pink. Black eyeliner and mascara. 

The other eye was a different look and therefore I left it for another blog post.  It's a very awesome dramatic look. So- watch out for it!! Till next time!! =-)
