Christmas Spirit

HELLO everyone. So I failed on my mission to write a post everyday. I shouldn't have chosen a month that has the biggest holiday of the year. So I will just recap you guys on how I spent my holiday.

I woke up super early because I had to season my 11 lbs turkey!!! The biggest turkey I ever had to bake. So I seasoned and stuffed him and then an hour later the kids woke up. Evan's face was priceless when he saw all the new gifts Santa gave him. We defiantly spoiled the kids this year.

Kyla

After opening the presents we took TONS of pictures and callled/skype family. Dinner came and I made a feast for my family. It was just us so I really wanted to make it special for them.

At about 7 pm I saw Django with my best friend. It was a good movie just not my type of movie. If you like westerns and understand Quentin type of movies then you may love it. Plus it is SUPER long! I didn't arrived home till 10 at night!!!
So my Christmas was real chill and spent with lots of love. Hope everyone had a beautiful holiday!

Plum or Cherry?

So having the new year being so close by I need a new look. I really want to have COLOR nothing neutral. Do I go plum or cherry?

Plum

Cherry

Both are so pretty. I find purple to be harder to match makeup, clothes, etc. but more suitable for me. Plus I have never had that color before. I have been red before but it was a LONG time ago. Red is nice for my skin tone and I love rocking a red lip. I have to make a decision real soon. So any help would be AWESOME!

Sandy Hook Elementary School

Today was not supposed to be like this. It was my son's first concert and I was so excited. He is my first born so this would be my first event like this. I imagined kids singing and dancing and my son just full of smiles. Instead I wake up to news hearing about another shooting. All shootings are devastating, they are terrible to hear about all those lives taken away for absolutely no reason at all. But this particular one was beyond shocking for this sick man came into an Elementary school and killed innocent little children. What is the world coming to? Being a mother of a child who will go to Elementary school very soon this hit me hard. I cried listening and reading about parents and children themselves tell stories about what happened that horrible morning. My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to all who have suffered from today's tragedy.

I hope we can learn from this experience and device a plan for this to never happen again. Love and take care of one another.

BUT did came across a whole rack of sweater dresses, all look exactly the same but different colors. I thought they looked pretty cute till I saw the price tag............5.99!!!!!!! 5.99 for a dress!!!!!!! I of course had to grab 2!


I tried them on and they fit me like a glove and I love the sleeves, they ruffle at the top. Future OOTD!

Kiddos Update



Kyla is in her terrible two stage where everything is a struggle and TANTRUMS! It has not been easy going out to places so we stay home a lot. She is learning new words like WOW and says what a lot!! She is just getting so big she can fit into 3T clothes!!! She really is such a joy though, she makes me laugh all the time. She likes to look in the mirror and talk to herself and loves all toys with music in them.




Evan just turned 5 in November. He is thriving in school and really loves it. He has a few good friends and a best friend named Sean. Plus he is really good with the ladies;)
At school he has learned spanish, french and sign language! Mostly numbers and the alphabet. He eats like a 15 yr old boy! I am constantly cooking and giving him snacks. He is polite and sweet the most incredible boy I know.

Revlon Black Cherry Lipstick



I know this lipstick is scary looking. Especially for us fair skinned tone girls this may be intimidating. But once on the lips it makes them a beautiful dark wine color, a mixture of burgundy and red. It is the perfect vampy lip color I own. With such a daring lip color all you need is a thick lined eye and minimal cheeks and you have the PERFECT makeup look for this season.

NYX MATTE Bronzer





I have been using my NYX matte bronzer a lot lately and must say I am loving it. It is perfect for my fair skin tone. I adore the packaging, it is so sleek and shiny. I like the fact that it brings a mirror as well.


If you are fair skinned like me I would suggest trying it out.

I give this product an A

Covergirl Lip Perfection Lipstick in Divine


I really love the packaging it's sleek and has a purple metallic finish but what I REALLY love is the end of the lipstick it shows the color and has the name at the end.



I was in a search for a purple lipstick just because they seem so unique and I think they would look great with my dark hair. I don't own any so I kind of really had no clue how they would look on me. I don't own any Covergirl lipsticks so I was really intrigued to try one out.

Covergirl in Divine


As you can tell in the tube it is a bright purple but once swatched on the skin/lips it is a fuschia almost a HOT pink color. I was a little disappointed just because the color is not what I wanted BUT it is still a beautiful color. It is defiantly for the daring, which I am! The pigmentation is AMAZING! But what really impressed me is the longevity of the lipstick. It is VERY long lasting and eventually hours later stain your lips. I mean I don't own any lipstick like this, it is really incredible. The texture of the lipstick is creamy and it doesn't feel very drying but not the most moisturizing either. The best way to describe is that it's a lipstick but has the power of a lipstain. I am defiantly going to buy more lipsticks from this line and hope I get the color right.

I give this product a A-

Cake Boss Cake



I came across this cake at the grocery store and my eyes widened as if I saw a celebrity! I was so thrilled to see that Cake Boss was branching out with a product of theirs that I could try because I LOVE the show. I grabbed for it right away. I bought the cake for $13.00 on sale.

Unfortunately the cake was disappointing. It claimed to be moist and wasn't. The frosting was bland, the decoration of the cake was underwhelming since we know he does amazing work. I did enjoy the fudge filling, it was creamy and tasty. Overall the cake is nice but no I would not repurchase it.

I give it B-

BLOGCEMBER!!!

That's right everyone I'm ALIVE! I apologize for the lack of posts but life sure has been hectic and free time is precious to me. Because of my absence I will be writing a blog EVERYDAY this month. Makeup will be the base of it all but I do like to add other things like food, living in Vegas and updates.

Since it is the holidays I will share with you guys my favorite part of Christmas, which is setting up the tree! Decorating the Christmas tree is by far the biggest tradition when I was a young girl and now that I have my own family I like to carry the tradition. I have had the same tree since my husband and I been married which is 5 years. I love a white tree because they are so different and modern yet still manage to look so elegant. My trees growing up always had a theme and it still isn't any different. I wanted it to look like a Christmas tree candy cane. I kept it real simple with white, bright red, and silver.


My son Evan had the honor of putting the topper


We usually set up the Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving, get the holiday spirit ASAP! I like to play Christmas music in the background, my favorite is the NSYNC holiday CD (don't laugh at me)it truly isn't Christmas until I listen to that album.

So does you Christmas tree have a theme?
