Let's Make-up For It

With our original outdoor plans cancelled due to excess rain, Cassie and I made up for our lost fishing time by doing make overs! This look is inspired by a photo of actress Angelina Jolie.
Using concealer as a highlighter for cheek and brow bones, and the bridge of the nose contours the face. Brown eyeshadow is ideal for blue eyes and makes them pop. Peachy-Champagne cheeks and lips make a sweet finish. :)

$2 Deal of the Day

As I was shopping at the Dollar Store for flower seeds, I began browsing the make-up section. There I found Pink Ice lipstick [smells/tastes like sugar] and Pink Pearl lip gloss [both by L.A. COLORS]. They were $1 each. What a deal! The lipstick goes on smooth and has a nice texture while the lip gloss isn’t sticky and has the perfect amount of shine. Deal of the day ba-bay!

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Racing against time and an incoming rainstorm from the West, I greeted midmorning, trowel in hand, ready to spruce of the flower boxes. [side note] The flower boxes are a product of my father’s genius idea. Made from vinyl fence posts, he cut out flower boxes that will never require the annual painting. They’re simply chip free and flower friendly.

Step one: I planted a total of 8 Geraniums. Step 2: Using sedum from around the yard, I planted some greenery on either side of each Geranium. The whole process only took about half an hour.

Vuala! The flower boxes are cute and complete.
