PERFECTLY HAPPY

6.28.2016

 Sometimes I focus too much on the negatives, I guess because  it's the easiest thing to do, but with prayer I have learned to accept and appreciate what I have and who I am. I have the sweetest little boy that shows me so much love, a man that sees beauty in me everyday, and I have my parents that thanks to God they are alive and well. I am not perfect, nor do I have a perfect life, but I am perfectly happy with all my flaws. 

When you're focused upon how good the good is, the good gets better.

OCEAN BLUES

6.27.2016

I am currently in Atlantic City with my babes, Kevin and Gavin. They just left to get ice cream and I decided to stay in. After getting crazy sunburned I felt like I needed to relax. 

I also wanted to take some time and post since I have not posted in a while. I have been working on my photography website and of course Gavin takes up most of my time.

Hope you like my little blue ensemble.

SHEATH DRESS

6.10.2016

Initially I didn't like this dress. I didn't think it would be flattering on me because of my big thighs, but I was wrong. It turned out to be one of my favorite dresses. Definitely will be wearing it again with a pair of espadrilles or some classic Vans. 

Happy Friday everyone!

CASUAL CRAYOLA DAY

6.08.2016

This is my casual "mommy" outfit I wore to take Gavin to the Crayola Experience center. Unfortunately, I didn't get to shoot many photos of him because we were having too much fun! 
Warms my heart to see him laugh so much even though in the first photo he's into he sneaker laces while I'm cheesing.

90'S ALL BLACK

6.06.2016

Hey guys! I'm so excited about these photos because they were shot with my camera! I previously had the Canon 7D and it just wasn't doing it for me anymore. I am going to be more children photography so I want my photos to be perfection. 

Anyway, Kevin decided it was time to spoil me with the Canon 5D Mark III and then the Sigma 50mm 1.4 art lense. This combo is the freaking best! If you're into photography I definitely recommend this camera with any of the Sigma art lenses.

SMASHBOX LIQUID LIPSTICKS

6.03.2016

 My first matte liquid lipstick was from Colourpop and I was obsessed. The only thing I didn't like about it was the texture. It felt very heavy and after a while it got just a bit clumpy. However, I purchased more shades because I thought that's how all liquid lipstick were suppose to feel, plus for $5.00 a pop, why not?

 Well, yesterday I received an unexpected package from Smashbox and it was their new collection of matte liquid lipsticks. Now I am going to give you my honest opinion. My initial reaction was "yay more lipsticks!" because I love lipsticks, but I thought "ugh I already have so many from CP. Either way I was excited to try. 

The first one I tried was "Stepping Out" and I instantly fell in love. Not only the color is perfection, but the texture was kind of velvety and very light. It didn't feel heavy at all, it felt like I was wearing a normal lipstick.  I also wore for about 5 hours and it was still intact.

So with that said, I decided to share all my 10 shades with you. 
Hope you love them as much as I do. And if you're on the hunt for a matte liquid lipstick I suggest you go to Smashbox. 

You can find all the shades and more at Sephora.
