Mani Monday

Here's another Mani Monday post for you all!

This is Sinful Colors "Rise & Shine" It's a great color and is opaque in about 2-3 coats.
This is just a white Sinful Colors polish with Pure Ice "Endless Fortune" on my ring finger. I hate using white nail polish, but I just love it. The gold started peeling after one day, no fun.
This is e.l.f.'s "Smokin Hot." This color it brighter in person, kind of like a neon red. It took about three coats to be opaque. It's so pretty. I have such bad luck with e.l.f. polishes, they chip so easy but I keep buying them because they have such cute colors.
(Inside by window)

This beautiful pink is Forever 21 "Daquiri" and Forever 21 Liquid Sand Polish in "Champagne." I saw these both and had to get them. I have three coats of "Daquiri" on and two of "Champagne." I suggest looking at some of Forever 21's polishes. They have quite a bit of color options and are only about $2. So worth it!

Well, until next time! :)

Mani Monday

So I am going to start doing Mani Monday's, where i post all of my nail polish looks from the previous week. I figured I might as well since i do my nails quite a bit sometimes. So here we go?

I absolutely love glitter polishes! This one was a little a little hard to get glitter payoff though. This is about four coats. I probably should have done white or black underneath but I didn't so yeah.

Now this is an amazing color. I was going to buy Essie's "Butler Please" but this seems like an exact dupe for it:) it had great color payoff. I have plenty of blue polishes, but not a color like this. I am in love with it! I used about three coats.

Now, I honestly liked this color more when it was just in the bottle. In the bottle it looks like a really deep red. On the nails it still looks like that, but has a brown-ish color to it. I still like it though. It's a pretty chocolate brown color.

So that's all for this Mani Monday! :) Until next time!

New Years Resolutions

This year went by pretty fast I must say. It was full of so much happiness. I've rekindled friendships and am still friends with my best friend, who I am so thankful for. She is always there for me and knows me so well. Of course i'm thankful for my two boys. I love them so much.

Then there's Mike, we've been together for four years and I love him with all of my heart. Just recently he has decided to join the army. Which I am hurt about, but it's all for the best.

Now on to my resolutions.
1. Lose weight.
This is something that is everyone's resolution i'm sure, but it's time I lose all the baby weight. I am about 40 or 50 pounds more than i was before I was pregnant with Jered. So I have quite a ways to go. I will be trying to complete the Bikini Body Mommy 90 Day Challenge.

2. Potty train Jered.
I know this is pretty random but I would like him potty trained by his second birthday.

3. Start eating clean.I guess this should go with number one but this is a big thing for me. I eat so horrible. I know i won't be able to eat completely clean right off the bat, but hopefully over time i will. And I also hope my family will start eating clean right along with me.

4. Be a more active blogger. I don't blog as often as I would like. This year I am going to try and blog at least once a week. I plan on having a "Mani Monday" every Monday, since I paint my nails so much I might do two or three different ones in one post or spread them out throughout the week.

That's all I have for now. I didn't want too many cause I eoyld just give up on them.

So stay tuned for more posts from me in the near future.

In The Hospital

So on Wednesday my youngest son, Austin, had a seizure. We took him to the E.R. And they said it was a Febrile seizure. Which the doctor said is a seizure caused by a fever getting too high too fast. After all that everything was fine so they discharged him.

A couple of days later Mike and I felt like we were getting sick so my mom took Austin for the night. We were in bed, watching tv, ready to go to sleep, when my mom called and said Austin was having another seizure. So we went to the E.R. again. This time they admitted Austin into the PICU. This all happened last night.

Earlier today they did an MRI. Which went well and we should have the results today. He also had an EEG done. Which also went well but as Austin was getting hooked up he was screaming. We should get the results of the EEG tomorrow at the latest.

My poor baby has red spots all over from the EEG...
I still can't believe that this happened to him..he's only four months old:( Hopefully he'll either grow out of the seizures (Like his father, Mike, who had them as a baby), or that this is something we will be able to control...
I'm hoping we aren't here much longer. The nurses are all so wonderful. Austin also got a stocking filled with goodies which was so nice.

This has been a very stressful week...until next time...

App Review: Cartwheel

So I was pretty excited to find this app. With this app you can save various amounts of money for buying certain things at Target. For example, you need toothpaste or lotion or even milk, so you go on Cartwheel and see if they have any of those items are on there. If they are you add the offer to your account. Most offers are about 5% off. The most I've seen is 30-40% I believe. Anyway, once your done shopping and you have items from Cartwheel in your basket you go to checkout. You then just show the cashier the barcode for them to scan and there you go.

Some details about the can sign up with Facebook. You will be able to see if your friends use Cartwheel and what offers they've used unless they've been added privately. Another thing. You only get a certain amount of spaces you can put offers in. Once friends join the app you get another space. So invite friends for more spaces!
They have pretty much everything in this app so its easy for you to save money
Last night I got a Monsters University blanket for Jered, for Christmas, a mini notepad, pens and a bottle opener key for Mike, all for a little over $15 thanks to Cartwheel. Had I not used it I would have paid $15 just for the blanket alone.

All in all I highly recommend this app, especially if you shop at Target quite a bit.
Well...until next time!

Elf Disney Villains

So awhile back I went and got an e.l.f. Disney Villians look book. I got the Cruella De Vil look book. I was going to get the Evil Queen but the eyeshadows looked almost exactly the same and I likes the Cruella lip gloss more.

Almost all Walgreens by my house were sold out but then one got a shipment in so off I went in the morning. I was tempted to buy more than on or at least the nail polish set buy Mike didn't even know I was getting one. Anyways, on to pictures.
The packaging has magnetic closures but now one of th didn't close. It just flops everywhere.
The look book comes with six eyeshadows, an eyeshadow brush(I love e.l.f.s eyeshadow brush), a black pencil liner, black liquid eyeliner, a lip gloss and an eyeshadow primer.

Sisters Homecoming Dance

So last month I did my sisters hair and makeup for her homecoming dance. She also wore one of my old dresses.
I did her hair curly all on one side of her head.
For her makeup I did a light silver on her whole lid and a dark silver/gray in her crease. Then a black eyeshadow with purple glitter on her outer corner. I used a Bh Cosmetics palette and an E.L.F. palette. Then I used Falsies mascara.

So, until next time!
