In the spirit of spring I’ve been doing some cleaning around the house and this past weekend the task was my makeup storage and organization…well at least part one of it (don’t judge!) and I found so many old favorites that have made their way to the back of my collection. It was like going shopping in my own collection! This was a perfect opportunity to pull out some old faves for fresh new beauty looks!
This past weekend was the weather I’ve been waiting for! Saturday was so pretty out. Just lovely. I was super busy, as usual this weekend but most of the day Saturday I was out running errands. Perfect day for simple makeup and bright colors. Continue reading
Happy Friday Queens! TGIF, TGIF. It’s been forever since I’ve done a Fab Friday post! To be honest, whenever I have a blog worthy beat face, I never remember to take a pic. Le sigh, such is life. But I’m working on this for you loves! And here it is! My current favorite makeup! Enjoy!
My loves! I’ve missed you so! I can’t believe it’s been over a week since my last post. Ya’ll have no idea how that makes me feel. Disconnected that’s how and I hate it! Please excuse my absence. My boys started football last week and now I’m trying get my entire life together because NO ONE told me how hard it was going to be with 2 hour practices EVERY DAY for preseason. WHEW! THIS brown queen is beat! But that’s no excuse Queens so here I am! WITH a new blogging schedule that you will see next week so make sure you stop by!
So…How long has it been since I’ve done a Fabulous Friday post? TOO long obviously since I have to ask. Which quite honestly makes me sad because if it’s one thing I stress here is that, as the Queens we are, we MUST take time and focus on ourselves as well. It’s easy to get caught up in your career, your family, Life. There’s always that project that needs to be done, or that practice to attend. Trust me, I know. But as the age old saying goes…if the mama ain’t happy…well ya’ll know the rest. Regardless of what it is that makes you feel great make sure you carve out time to do that! And do it OFTEN! Now that I’m off my soapbox, I bring to you a fabulous face of the day featuring TWO new products that I absolutely love, Love, LOVE and I hope you will too! Enjoy Queens! It’s FRIDAY!
