I’ve started this blog in hopes of having a place to talk all about the things I love. I feel as though that’s good for you, right? When you can express yourself any way you want without anyone judging you? Well, this is that space for me.
So just a little about me. I am a 29 (30 this September! EEK) wife and mother. I recently started working at my job of 7 years part time last summer so that I could spend some more time at home with my kids. It has really helped a lot. I feel like I am there for them so much more. I used to work full time 45-50 hours a week and that was causing a major strain on me and the home life. We’d get home at 6:45-7:00pm at night and then I’d have to worry about dinner, homework, showers/baths. Aah! At the end of the day I just wanted to collapse! But I feel I am in a much better place now since cutting back.
I guess my obsession with makeup started only 3 years ago. (Yes, I am a makeup noob) We had gotten an Ulta in my area and I didn’t even know what it was to be honest. I had always been into makeup, but my makeup shopping consisted of grabbing drug store eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliner, and foundation and slapping it on my face. Trust me it was not pretty! I have photos of me at 19 or 20 years old with this blue eyeshadow all over my lid. That’s it – just blue eyeshadow. It was scary stuff! So I wandered into Ulta on a whim one day and it just spiraled from there. Seeing a whole entire store devoted to makeup? -Que cliche choir music- 🙂
Anyways, to make a long story short, I was hooked. Seeing all the color palettes on display was amazing and I started my collection. I think the first palette that I picked up was the Urban Decay Pony Palette. I loved it. I still have it, and I still use it. Maybe someday soon I will show you every thing that I acquired over the years, but lets just say – it’s quite a bit!
I like to say that I am still in the learning stages of makeup. I surely don’t know everything (does anyone really though?) I am just very passionate about it and feel as though I can help others as well.
What you can expect here are honest product reviews, looks of the week, favorite products, and everything else that my little heart desires. I’d also like to incorporate fashion at times. The things I like, and the things I pick up, and wear. I’ve recently started my healthy lifestyle change again. I started it back in May and lost about 20 lbs over the summer. Towards the end of the summer however, I lost some important people in my family and ended up gaining it all back.
Since starting back up in January, I lost that 20 lbs again and an additional 5, so I feel as though I am on the right path. You will probably see what’s for dinner posts as well! So, as not to make this long entry ANY longer, I am going to stop here! There are plenty more opportunities for you to get to know me, and me to you! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’d love to hear from you! 🙂
Much love to you ❤
