HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2017 is finally here. Hope you all had a lovely New Year’s weekend. We pretty much went out to dinner and watched the ball drop because we had the boys. Plus we had to wake up the next day to go Sing. If you have kids, go see this movie. It was so cute and funny. Was also sad when we had to take down the Christmas decorations. Now that we are starting a new year I did share with you last week what my goals were for 2017 but today is all about my January Goals. Let’s take a look back at December Goals and see how I did.
As a mom some times I have those nights where we I can’t sleep either because I have insomnia or one of my kids decides to have a sleepless night. Which of course means dark circles for mama bear. I’m not a fan of dark circles, I mean who is. You can try to cover them up with makeup but sometimes that doesn’t always work. Well today I’m going to share with you all about a great beauty product that I’ve been loving lately right before bed.
New Year means new resolutions. I’m sure we’re all writing down what our New Year resolutions are going to be in 2017 but how many of you can honestly say you followed through with your 2016 resolutions? I can honestly say I didn’t. I failed at them. Today I’m going to look back at my 2016 goals and share with you my 2017 goals.
You guys we are ringing in 2017 in 4 days! CRAZY. If you didn’t catch it yesterday on the blog but I did a 2016: A Year in Review. With that being said this week for the Beauty Mix is all about the New Year’s Eve look. I’m definitely a fan of New Year’s Eve makeup look because you can do WHATEVER look you want because it’s a HUGE celebration. So today I did a smokey eye using black and burgundy because I wanted to use my Urban Decay Heavy Metal (Glamrock).
Well guys, Christmas is over (insert heartbroken emoji). Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas weekend. I can’t believe that its over and now we have to wait 365 until Christmas. But on another note we have 5 days until 2017. With that being said today’s post is all about “2016: A Year In Review”; personal and blog related. Also have you noticed that I got a face lift on the blog. I wanted to bring in the new year with a bright look since I can see my future looking bright.
One of my favorite things about Christmas is definitely any kitchen gift sets I receive from my parents. I love to bake a lot, whether it’s: cookies, brownies, pies, cakes, cupcakes and any other delicious treats. So when I received this amazing and cute gift set from Thoughtfully, I was so excited to start baking. Not sure what Thoughtfully is! I’m here to tell you all about this cute online shop.
5 days people! 5 days until Christmas. Are you done with your shopping? I sure ain’t. I have to finish up this week. This week for the Beauty Mix: Christmas (Holiday Makeup). I just love holiday makeup looks and this week I wanted to keep it classy, sparkly but bold with the red lipstick. I honestly believe that this look is super simple to do. The classic wing liner with the gold glitter liner above it and white sparkly shade on the crease.
One of my favorite things to do is stuff the Christmas stockings especially for my kids because I can put little things they will enjoy in the stockings. Today I wanted to share with you great Stocking Stuffers for Her. You can do this for your sister, cousin, grandma, mom, aunt, girlfriend, best friend or any female in your life. These products would fit perfectly in the stockings. I always ask for gift cards and chocolate when I ask for things to put in my stocking.
You guys…..there are 10 days until Christmas. I’M SO EXCITED! My boys are constantly waking up and reminding us how many more days until Christmas. Which I can’t lie I’m ready to give them their presents. We still have a few things to get them but we will be ready to wrap and put them under the tree on the 23rd. I’m sure you guys are wondering “Well Christmas Eve is on the 24th?”. Growing up my family ALWAYS celebrated Christmas on Christmas Eve meaning the whole family would get together on the 24th, we would have a big feast and then open presents.
This week for the Beauty Mix it’s all about the sparkle. Some people love to wear sparkly eye looks during the holiday months and that’s what I love to do as well. I feel like when you add a bit of sparkle to your eyes, it makes everything better. So this week Ashleigh and I have decided to create a look for the holiday that included some sparkle.
