As many of you may remember, I was following the heart breaking story of little Layla Grace. She was fighting Neuroblastoma cancer and lost her battle just a few short months ago.

I held a found raiser in the shop to help raise funds for the Layla Grace foundation and i am happy to report that the fundraiser was a huge success. We raised $500.00 - whoo hoo

Thank you to all my fabulous customers who helped raise these founds for such a worthy cause. I couldn't have done it without you

Must have's

I am a makeup junkie - there I said it!!

I love all makeup, hair products and all things to make us beautiful! In all honesty, I am not a girlie girl, but I do love trying new goodies. When I go to Sephora I feel giddy. It makes me feel like a kid in a candy store. All the pretty colors - it's intoxicating

Here a few of my current favorite makeup goodies

oh my goodness! i love this product! It's Sephora Buildable Coverage Concealer and doesn't settle in fine lines. I stay up late most nights, so dark circles are something I deal with all the time and for me, this covers them flawlessly! I wouldn't want to go without it! It is one of the best I've tried and it is budget friendly!

This one was a bit of a splurge for me because not only I am a junkie, I am frugal. It is Smashbox Hydrating Perfecting Powder and brush set. It claimed to decrease the appearance of wrinkles - who wouldn't want to try it. I tried it and love it. The coverage is fantastic and it doesn't cake like some other minerals. {which I use, too} It gives an airbrushed look but does not look or feel heavy. My only problem is, NO SPF - so be sure to use a moisturizer with one in it. This one is worth the money.

so here is the other mineral makeup that I use. I have been using this 'foundation' for 10 years. I love it, too. This one is Bare Escentuals.

bBare Escentuals mineral veil is fan-freakin-tabulous! It is like airbrush in a container. It is a finishing product and you can use it through out the day. I have one in the car, my purse and each bathroom. You just never know when you will need a little touch us.

I have oily skin and liner is something I have a problem with. It seems that I can apply it in the morning and within a few hours later it is under my eyes {so I have a wonderful raccoon look} or it is on my eye lids - which is also an undesirable look. I recently found Sephora Waterproof Liner.
It offers budge resistance color and let me tell you - IT WORKS! I can apply it in the morning and in the evening it is still there! It isn't hard to remove either. Just soap and water. This is the BEST I have ever tried and it's inexpensive. Gotta love that!

For blush I love Bare Escentuals. One of the reasons I love using minerals is because it allows you freedom to mix and create your own colors. You can add mineral veil to your blush to tone it down. You can dip your lipstick, lip balm or lip gloss into a blush or shadow to create one of a kind colors. The possibilities are endless. I like that! AND they last FOREVER!

For mascara I have two picks. The first is Smashbox Lash DNA and I use this one when I want a dramatic eye. It is rich and thick and gives volume plus length. Great for evening or when you really want to draw attention to your eyes.

For everyday I love Neutrogena healthy Volume Mascara. This mascara works great! gives me beautiful volume without the clumps. The brush is nice and big and covers in one applications. I add a second or third for a more dramatic look. Plus it is budget friendly!

Be back soon with more of my faves!

Got your own faves that you want to tell me about?
Please post a comment. I am always up for trying something new

look what I got

I just got the cutest pair of jeans today. They came in the mail. I bought them online. I love packages at my door. It makes me feel happy.

I also bought some really cute tanks, which I love for our California Summer's.

This one is cute, but not sure if I am gonna keep it. It requires a racer back bra which I would have to purchase and I hate bra shopping. It is worse than jean shopping. But it is cute and I love the beaded detail, so we will see

Love the petal detail on this one. So cute. You can dress it up or wear it casual. I bought it in turquoise, hot pink and black. I also love the length on this one. It looks and feels expensive, but it isn't! Gotta love that

This one is also a maybe. I like it and the cute rainbow stitching, but honestly it makes me look like I'm wearing a towel. Its very boxey. My husband likes it, so I may give it a try {?}

I love the lace on this. It makes it feel feminine and I can easily layer it under a tee when the weather cools. I bought this one in lime, hot pink and white.

I HEART these jeans, big time. I always have a problem finding jeans that don't gap in the back. The description reads "lining that slims and trims while giving your butt a boost" I was all for that, but still had reservations. So I ripped open the package and tried them on immediately. . . I was sold.

FINALLY a jean that fit my ample rear and waist without needing a belt. They are so flattering on. I think I can give my GAP curve jeans a much needed rest as I will be reaching for these as my new FAV jeans.

Incase you want to snag a pair for yourself, the name of the jean is DREAMERS. Personally I think they should have named them The Dream Jean :}
I am getting another pair, probably in a lighter wash.

Everything I bought came from Old Navy. I love Old Navy, but I have shyed away from shopping there lately. It seems that they are trying to cut cost by making cheaper quality clothes. I bought a bunch of their tee's last year and they were horrible. They didn't stand up to more than a few washes before loosing their shape. Big disappointment.

So now, before I buy ANYTHING from them, I read their online reviews. They are real women posting real reviews and I have found them helpful with all my purchases.

enjoy :}

sew crafty

I love boutique ruffle pants and decided to make some for my little one. I bought a pattern last year and tried unsuccessfully to make them for her. I decided to give t another go and this time that they actually turned out right and she will wear them (big plus)

so here they are . . .

ideally, they would have been a bit longer. I think I will add another ruffle for some extra length but the good news is that they fit.

I also made a halter dress and will post pics once the weather warms up

I heart this

I recently purchased a necklace for myself, { okay, well it was last year, but still. } from The Vintage Pearl and I wear it almost everyday. It is so special to me because it represents my family. I chose 3 different shapes. Kaitlyn is a flower, Nicholas is a circle and Mark is a heart. Each shape represent something special.

Kaitlyn loves the necklace and has asked for one of her own ever since I got mine. So I purchased one for her as a birthday gift. I chose this one for her :

of course, it will say Kaitlyn and have her birthstone. {wink}
I am so excited to get it. I hope that she loves it.

happy shopping - tell her Baby K Designs sencha
