Makeup Tutorial: Soft Pink

Hello there!

The  other day I had a little time before dinner to really dial in some makeup and thought it would be fun record it and share.   It’s a soft, flirty look that transitions perfectly from day or night.

I thoroughly enjoy shopping for makeup, watching makeup tutorials,  playing in makeup and coming up with pretty, feminine, “new” looks.  To me, wearing makeup is a form of expression and creativity, just like painting, music or anything that requires skill and imagination.  I don’t believe I need it wear it to be beautiful, but I can say it does put a little more of a pep in my step when I enhance my look.

See the video/tutorial HERE.

I hope you like it!

Juice, Juice, Juice!

So I’ve decided to dust off my juicer and I’m so excited, infact, I am considering juicing at least four times a week.  It feels great knowing I’m putting something so healthy in my body since my diet had taken a pretty big nose dive after I had baby. I was craving sugar more often which was probably due to my eating it more regularly. However, I’m proud to say I’ve been slowly transitioning away from it. I started by allowing myself less and less with my coffee.

For the juice pictured above I used “misc” veggies that were nearing expiration.

Pear, carrots, ginger, romaine, spinach, and kale ( which made 14 ounces).

My Omgea 8005 Juice Extractor is great, the pulp comes out pretty dry and is easy to clean. I’m curious to know how much time it takes from veg/fruit prep to actual juice…gonna have to time myself and report back.
