Baby Update: 30-ish Weeks

I can’t believe it’s my third trimester already, I mean I feel like I’ve been pregnant forever….but not really!?! I’m rounding the final stretch where I’m going to blow up like a blimp and get HUGE, which is not exciting at all. We still haven’t picked a name for this child, we have one we like but haven’t made a firm decision on it. Naming a kid is really hard, you can’t name it after anyone you ever hated, and you would be surprised how many names that excludes. >:)

insta collageAbove are selfies from Instagram of me being pregnant… LOL!!! ” Oh hey look at me stretch out this shirt!” I’ve also noticed that I’ve been wearing a lot of horizontal stripes lately….. why do they make maternity shirts like that I wonder?!? Continue reading

FOTD: Random Natural

Random August FOTDYes, I have been very boring lately, sticking with my “go-to” makeup, which is browns!! I can’t even be sure I even had a base on in these pictures. I took them, and left the camera upstairs until I felt like working with them…. which caused me to forget what the hell I put on my face. Thankfully I use the same products most of the time!!

Manicure: Cloudy Skies Dot Fall

Cloudy Skies Dot 2I finally did my nails!!! Amazing, I know… I went probably more than a month with naked nails, and they really needed a break. I picked something easy, and for me that’s dots. I’m a big fan of dot fall manicures, since you can’t really mess them up. Placement is totally random and can overlap, so if you struggle with straight dots, try this!

Cloudy Skies Dot

Hopefully in the coming weeks I can find the patience to do some Halloween nail posts, perhaps maybe even a Halloween pedicure if hubs feels up to painting little eyeballs on my toes (he’s been so sweet, he’s already done my toes once).… cause I can’t reach them!!!!!!

I hope this post finds you all well!

FOTD: A Red Lip For Nina

A Red Lip For NinaOh, well, hello there stranger! I’m still here, just not as much. Since school has started back for my son and I’m rounding out the last few months of my pregnancy…blogging has been far from in my mind. I’ve moved into a “blog when I really want to” mood, which still has me taking photos of some of the looks I do, but staying away from reviews.

This look is from last week, for my girl Nina at Ninafashionlife, who told me to shut up and wear the red lipstick. <3 My husband is fond of a red lippy on me, so I’m going to try to wear it more often!

Click here for a post about my “go to” red lip products!

Hopefully my next post wont take quite as long, and might be a OOTD baby post!

A Brief Hiatus

Hello everyone, I wanted to take some time and let you all know that I’m going to be stepping away from the blog for a week or two. August is shaping up to be a pretty busy month for us, our son will be starting back at his new school, and hubs and I will be diving into all the baby classes, and finishing up the nursery.

I’ve also been on a no-buy the last month or so which has me lacking in new product posts. I have high hopes for all the new fall launches. I’m working on Halloween prep as well, since it requires me to plan months in advance to get posts up in time for people to use them as inspiration. If you have any requests for Halloween nail art, or makeup, just leave a comment below. I’m taking requests for other posts as well. Tell me what you want to see. Pictorials, Product Review, more Versus posts?

I’ll still be around, you can message me on Twitter or Facebook.

I’ll see you all again in a few weeks XOXO

Favorites: July 2014

July Fav CoverI’m shocked that it’s already August, I feel like it was just yesterday that I was doing Christmas posts. Thankfully July is finally over, it was the neverending month for me… it just wouldn’t stop. So now that it’s gone, we get to look through some of my boring monthly favorites. I’ve been on a bit of a no-buy the last month, and with it being the hottest part of summer, I’m not interested in wearing much of anything. Continue reading
