Mother's Day already came & left, but I really enjoyed my time with my family. This was my first year celebrating with my baby, Hezekiah so it made it even more special! The day before we celebrated Zachariah's 3rd Birthday, so we were all pretty tired. The two little ones slept in while Ezekiel & Hubs ran some errands. The boys & their daddy let me go at my pace, so I spent time doing my face & hair, got dressed up & no one complained or 'interrupted' me while I was getting ready. It was heavenly!
They had plans but were surprising me... We ventured out of town & went for a little ride. Once we were close to our destination they had me close my eyes until we got to our 1st stop. We were at a BRAND NEW ULTA! It was the Grand Opening Weekend, so everything was still in stock & the store was so nice, but packed... Before we got out of the car they gifted me with a nice gift card & sent me in to shop. I went in wanting a couple palettes, but walked out with something completely different...
I got these during the Sephora VIB Sale a couple months ago & when they arrived, I tucked them away and forgot all about them... The other day I was talking about my 2017 Goals & Resolutions & I mentioned taking better care of my skin, so when I was going through my skincare products I got excited about trying out these masks all over again...
I love Christmas time, it's so magical! I love looking at all the lights, making (and eating) holiday desserts, putting up the Christmas tree, decorating & the festive spirit that almost everyone is in... This year we decorated before Thanksgiving, bought a bigger tree & enjoyed the holidays so much leading up to Jesus' birthday... On Christmas day, unfortunately our family lost a very important woman in all of our lives, but we did our best to remain thankful & faithful on what is supposed to be such a joyous occasion.
Every Christmas morning, one of our traditions is having my parents, grandma, sisters & brother over to our house to open gifts from each other & see what Santa left. Every year, opening presents lasts a little longer, because there are more kids & because everyone (not including my boys) is grown up and can afford to buy gifts now, but it's something I love & look forward to! It's so exciting to watch my kids open their presents. I love seeing their eyes light up when they see what they got, but I've got to say, I lucked out this year and got quite a few amazing gifts, too! My family knows me so well & their thoughtful & generous gifts didn't disappoint ... and I might have helped the boys pick a couple things out for mom! ;)
Over the past month I've picked a couple things up here & there. So far I've only tried the Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer, as well as the Nivea Men Sensitive Post Shave Balm as a primer. Everything else remained in the packaging until I could get a picture & post up. The struggle is real! ;)

About a month ago I found out ColourPop was going to be releasing some new liquid lipsticks on April 14th. I had recently purchased “Chi,” an Ultra Matte Lip from the KaePop Collab with Karrueche Tran & I really liked it, so I decided I’d try to get some of the new shades coming out to add to my collection. I originally was going to buy all the NEW liquid lipsticks, but I scaled down my purchase & ended up getting an eyeshadow & 5 lip products, two being new shades, Privacy Please & Cheap Thrills. *
The other day when I went to Walmart, I stopped in the Beauty section & took a quick look at what was "new" to our store... To my surprise we actually had some stuff I'd been wanting and things I hadn't even seen! I was most excited for the Wet 'N Wild palette & the Vegas Nay lashes!
I've yet to try anything, I wanted to show you guys first, but I'll be sure to let you know what I think of everything or maybe you'll see them in upcoming posts. ;)
Anyone that's ever been inside my house, would know I love it to smell good! I love candles, wax warmers, air fresheners, rooms sprays, plug-ins, etc. In fact, when people enter their first comment is usually how "it smells so good!" My husband and I pride ourselves in a clean & cozy home and we love having it smell good, especially when anyone else enters.
Over the past week, Bath & Body Works was running a few promotions, so we decided to get a few things and take advantage of their "sale prices" plus we had a code for 20% off. We ordered online, so we also earned cash back using Ebates (sign up today!) Who doesn't love a good deal?!
