Hello YouTube...

I have finally started a new YouTube account under the URL of  I'll be filming my first video which will be a quick intro along with a number of health and beauty products that I have been very attached to lately. I'm so glad to finally be making videos again and can't wait to upload my first one. I just want to thank those of you that have been so patient with me.  My channel will feature makeup tutorials, reviews, fashion hauls, beauty hauls, as well as "day-in-the-life" videos. I'm super excited!

Anywhooo, these are a couple of photos from today. I began practicing and brushing up on some of my makeup skills. You get rusty after a while. It's been quite some time since I've sat down and done my makeup properly, and comfortably, without being in a rush to get out the door.  I've played around with some video lighting and I think I've got it! I really can't wait to get this show on the road. 

Can't wait!!!

LOTD & Bistro Table Setting

I felt daring today and went for a smokey mint look on my eyes. I used colors from my Sedona Lace 120 1st Edition palette. It was nice to wear such a bold eyeshadow color for a change. 

Jerrid, J.J., and I just for back from Disney World. We went to meet up with Jerrid's cousin's that were on their family vacation. We joined them at Disney for a couple of days. While we were there we picked up some Florida resident annual passes so we will be heading up to Disney a lot more.  J.J. definitely gave us the puppy eyes when it came down to deciding whether or not we should get the passes...and we couldn't say no.  

I got a bistro table for what I thought would be a great casual dining area in our house.  I headed over to Pier 1 to pick up some cute table settings and brought home some awesome items from their huge sale.  I left with 4 napkins, 4 napkin rings, and 4 woven placemats for under $25! I brought home some beige dinner and salad plates from Home Goods (not pictured) along with 4 gorgeous tall Bohemian crystal Ralph Lauren glasses. 

I threw three sunflowers in a tall vase half way filled with Tropical Water Balls. Tropical Water Balls are amazing and keep the plants hydrated while making the centerpiece look so chic. You can find out more information about them and buy them at I love my bistro table and think it is so perfectly set up for the summer!

Summer Dew

I love summer! This morning, after sitting on the patio and watching the sun come up and bring a twinkle to the dewy grass, I was inspired to go to for morning dew makeup look using my Sedona Lace 88 metals palette.  I wore my new MAC lipstick "Kinda Sexy" which I find to be the perfect deep natural pink. The lipstick is opaque and glides on with a shine. 

Tomorrow will be all about a DIY project to create my American flag shorts for the fourth of July. I'm heading out bright and early to grab fabric paints, fabric spray paints, foam brushes, painters tape, and star stencils to get the job done. I can't wait and will be sure to photograph my every step so that I can share it all with my readers.

Smashbox Photofinish Primer
CoverGirl Mousse Foundation - "Natural Tan"

MAC "Springsheen" blush

4 colors used from Sedona Lace 88 metals palette.
