Just a look!

So when I was 18 I wrote this post >>>  It was a peek into my makeup box. Well I'm gonna do something similar again. Go over my favorite makeup, body products and looks. Fashion and so on.

Amazing tummy lotion by Mama Mio! I'm in love with this stuff. But it's pretty expensive. I also love thier Boob Tube and Lucky Legs lotions. I know they sound odd, but they are amazing!
Rimmel London Lasting Finish Lipstick in Frosted
I fianlly got up the courage to dye my hair - subtle red peek-a-boos. Yeah they are subtle alright, you can't really see them :) Oh well maybe next time (not a picture of me btw).
I love the look of coats like these
Much more likely to be caught wearing on of these!
I pretty much wear my eye makeup like this. Minus the heavy black under the eyes and the dark shadowing above. Too much work :) Just the peach and white part.
I still use the color stay mineral powder. In fact, I think I may still have the same container of it I had two years ago!
I'm still using the same type of concealer as well. They still make it and I see no reason to go hunt down another concealer that works well and make it match my skin. I'm happy with what I have.
I have changed my mascara, eyeliner and foundation, along with eyeshadow. The fondation I use is the dream nude airfoam foundation by maybelline, although I'm thinking of changing when I run out. I love the look it gives, so soft and airy, but I'm not a fan of how hard it can be to blend it. I would love to have one that is more easily blended since my bathroom lighting is not the best and I can't always see very well. The mascara changes practically everytime I buy it. Mostly because I have never found one I just love and because I just usually buy whatever is on sale. My eye shadow changed because I got kinda lazy about it and it's easier to go with simple peach and white then to worry about shadowing and highlighting everything. And as for eyeliner, I wear liquid black liner on top and a brown pencil liner on the bottom. Black is too harsh for me all over.

Cake Cutting! (Gender Reveal)

So yesterday we cut the gender reveal cake at church with some of our family and friends. It was great fun! We had everyone split into two groups - right side if you thought it was a girl and left if you thought it was a boy. Most of the people stood on the left, but I kinda think that was because it was the side closer to the door :)
So what is it??
Isn't that a pretty little cake? The local bakery did such a good job!
Cutting - it's a...
Little boy!
We're having a precious little boy! Can't you tell we're so excited??
You're very happy mother-to-be,

Daybook #11

Outside my window: rain rain rain cold and rain.

I'm thinking about: how I might just wash right out into the ocean with all this water pouring down.

From the kitchen: Nothing.

I am reading: To Whisper Her Name by Tamera Alexander.

I am listening to: the hum of the computer and heater, the song So Close and the sound of rain.

I am hoping: that the roads aren't too bad in the morning.

I am planning: the gender cake reveal on Sunday! Just a few more days until we know the gender of our precious little one!

I am wearing: Grey and white striped pj pants, a mauve "Bonjour" t-shirt, wedding rings and a cross necklace.

Around the house: Just minor tidying to do.

My wish of the week: that ALL of my weekend plans come to pass and don't fall through!

Baby, I love you

Baby, I Love You
by Mariah M.

I don't know your name yet
Or the color of your eyes
We have never really met
But I love you to the skies

 I don't know what size you'll be
Or how short or how tall
I don't know if you'll look like me
But I love you big or small

 I don't know you very well
Or even if you're a he or a she
But I can already tell
I love you deeper than the sea

 Baby, I love you!

by Lord Alfred Tennyson
Birds' love and birds' song
Flying here and there,
Birds' songand birds' love
And you with gold for hair!
Birds' songand birds' love
Passing with the weather,
Men's song and men's love,
To love once and forever.

Men's love and birds' love,
And women's love and men's!
And you my wren with a crown of gold,
You my queen of the wrens!
You the queen of the wrens --
We'll be birds of a feather,
I'll be King of the Queen of the wrens,
And all in a nest together
Can you tell I'm just dying for it to start warming up? I'm freezing most of the time!
