Me and My Makeup


Today's topic on the Sunday Social is makeup, and I just haad to participate because I'm pretty sure makeup was my first true love. Yeah, there have been times when my relationship with my makeup was probably less than healthy (see below) but I always come running back for more haha. 




When I was in high school I had a full blown makeup obsession. I watched hours of makeup videos on YouTube every week, and had a massive collection that I would use to turn myself into whoever I wanted to be that day. It was practically my identity. Today, my love for makeup still runs deep, but is far more appropriate and I also feel comfortable leaving the house without it.



I must confess though, I still watch YouTube makeup videos often. I have this inner fan girl in me that just swoons over Blair aka juicystar07, and I'm convinced that we'd be BFF's if we ever met. Actually, we've totally met because I'm a stalker like that and I went to a meet-up just to take a picture with her.



1. How old were you when you started wearing makeup? I think I wore lip gloss in middle school because I was just too lazy to put the time into anything more. I probably officially started wearing makeup in high school - although it makes me cringe now, because I didn't understand the benefits of blush or filling in my eyebrows...and I really over estimated the power of eyeliner.

2. What are your top 3 favorite beauty products? NARS blush, Makeup Forever HD Foundation, and the beauty blender sponge. 
3. What is one makeup product you don’t leave home without? Chapstick? The way my face looks when I leave the house is how it's going to stay. Aint nobody got time for touch-ups.
4. What is your daily beauty routine? AM: toner, dark spot corrector of some kind, primer, then makeup // PM: wash and exfoliate, toner, moisturizer. But that's a rough version, I'm still trying to perfect it because I feel like it's missing something...
5. What is your favorite hair/makeup product you’ve discovered in the last year? Makeup Forever HD Foundation. But now I need to find a really good primer so that the foundation can really do it's job.

I'm probably going through a phase

Lately I've been doing something that has taken me by surprise. All of the sudden, I started seeing the beauty of tiny details whereas before I hardly noticed them. Hello- why am I just now noticing that simple jewelry may be just as pretty as the statement stuff??

Also, I started liking pink! Loving it, actually. My favorite color can change daily but turquoise is almost always my main. Until recently, when I started noticing that pink just makes me happy - I don't know where it came from, but I'm rolling with it! I even tried to convince my Matthew I needed a pink car.

And um, what else? Oh yeah, Mattie claims that I am easilly absorbed in a new idea and I rarely come up for air once I let my mind grab a hold of something it likes (truth), so I try to wait a while before making any big decisions...buuut I think I'm gonna change the blog name. It just doesn't fit. Look at my design. Now read the name of the blog. Those things just don't go together. I know it's against blog etiquette or something to change the name of your blog (and I've done it 3 times) but I don't really care. Come at me, blog police. 

PS - All of those photos and more can be found on my "want" board, just in case you ever need to buy me something.

I know what I'm doing with our tax return!

Getting a new mouth.


And by that I mean...paying some guy to break my jaw open. Because I'm teething! A couple of weeks ago I noticed that one of my wisdom teeth were starting to come in, and I wasn't really sure what to do about that, because my health insurance doesn't cover dental. So I did what I normally do when disaster strikes and tried ignoring the problem (hahaha) but today my tooth "erupted" and my whole freaking face hurts and I have a migraine. Now I don't even care how much it costs, we're getting that sucker OUT. 

Basically this is what's happening in my mouth right now.


On that note, I'm going to start making cute lounge wear a bigger priority in my life. Recently my mama got me this cute set from Dillards and I am so in love with how cute and comfortable they are! Pretty sure they'll come in handy when I turn into a post-wisdom-tooth-extraction zombie in the near future.

Do you ever get mistaken for your sister in law?

So I never put up a Christmas post, but my guess is that you already have a pretty good idea of what happened. We hung out with family, ate delicious food, and opened presents! I just started going through some of our pictures from Christmas Eve, and I did a double take when I scrolled through the one of me...in the little camera screen it took me a second to realize it was me and not Sara!


Aaaand now I know why everyone kept calling me Sara that night. Haha. Is it creepy or cute that my husband found a lady who kind of resembles his sister? Anyways, I don't mind because I kind of like her a lot. In fact, it's probably a good thing neither of us a biological sister because somebody would get their feelings hurt that I like Sara more than any of them. She is the all-in-one best friend/sister every girl dreams of having.

In other news, I'm not sure if I like my hair bone straight like this. For one: I have to pay someone to do it because I can't sit there that long doing it myself only to end up with bumps and waves everywhere, and for two: I don't really feel like me!

However, I have been verrryy interested in hot rollers lately. I'm bad at curling my hair with a curling iron, but when somebody else does it it looks beautiful - silky curls instead of frizzy ones, you know? Dumb question: how do you not burn yourself if the rollers are hot when you put them in? That concern is basically the only thing keeping me from having hair like this everyday:


PS - Isn't this mistletoe we got for Christmas adorable?? Not that it's necessary...

An iPhone Update

The weekend before last, I went on a mini trip with my mom to Lake Havasu and we had a girls weekend with some friends there. So nice.



I realized that I might seriously have a thing for notebooks because no matter how many I have, I can always seem to find a reason to get another one. 


My Mattie and I had the best Saturday ever. Cuddled for hours, then ate dinner at one of our favorite fast food places (at an outside table because it was so nice!) THEN went to go see a movie and played in the arcade like kids while we waited for it to start. It's been hitting me lately how much I'll miss having him all to myself when the babies start coming. I'm a little nervous because I don't feel mature or responsible or put-together enough for kids...but if not now then when, you know? I thought I would just automatically be ready once I was married a while, but I feel less ready now than I did two years ago.




I painted for the majority of this past weekend and it was just so relaxing. I painted THREE canvases and I have nowhere to put them but all I want to do is go out and buy more to paint! I swear, they need to assign painting on canvas for people with anxiety or depression or any stress related problems whatsoever, it was so therapeutic. Also, this one looks dang good at my desk with that pretty pink notebook up there - double plus.

Took me a week

aaand seven days later I've finalized my resolutions. Its kind of tricky because I'm a sore loser, so they have to be easy enough for me to keep & significant enough to make a difference.

1. Wear perfume. Easy way to be more feminine.

2. Don't kill my little baby ranunculus.

3. Cook for my Mattie once a week. Seriously. That is more than what I do now. Haha #fail

4. Wake up a little earlier every now and then to have Laynah time.

5. Switch back to contacts so I can see my face again.

five simple things.
