Wild Tropics Makeup

I was shopping at Victoria's Secret when I saw the advertisement for their Wild Tropics makeup collection.  I really liked the look and decided to snap a picture of the ad to take and try out for myself.  I did this tutorial a few months ago but just haven't had the time to edit the pictures.

What I used

1: Clinique Touch Tints
2, 3, 4, 5: Avon Eyes hadow
7,6: Mark Eyeliner duo
Mascara: Avon Lash Extend

Step 1: Apply #1 over entire eye lid from lash to brow.  This adds shimmer and works as an eye shadow base to make your eye shadow last longer.  Apply #2 over the top of #1 from lash line to brown.  I always apply a light shade first because it helps with blending the dark shades later.

Step 2: Apply #4 to outer corner of eyein a V shape, along lash line and in the crease.  Fill in the small part of the V.

Step 3:  Using #3 blend #4 over the lid.  Also apply #3 to the inner corner and under the bottom lash line.

Step 4: Apply #5 along the upper and lower lash lines concentrating on the outer corner.

Step 5: Apply eyeliner #7 outer 2/3 of the lash line and #6 along inner 1/3 of lash line.  Follow with your favorite mascara.

18 Months of Wonder

Hard to believe this was me 18 months ago holding my baby boy for the first time.

Now my life revolves around that little boy, I live for him.  He needs me like no one has ever need me and I am blessed.  He isn't much of a cuddler but he loves to give kisses and be the center of attention.  I love nothing more than the sound of his voice saying "Mama" and him reaching up to me.

I look at him and he smiles while I wonder what I did in this life to deserve something so wonderful.  I treasure our time together.  Being a mother is the most difficult and most rewarding experience. 

Jameson turned 18 months on July 4, 2011.  We had fun playing outside with the snappers (fireworks that you throw and they make a loud noise).  Poor little man fell and hit scraped up his chin pretty bad but Mama was there to make it all better.

He had has 18 month well visit the next day weighing 21 lbs 1.5 oz (2%) and height of 32.25 inches (50%).  He is tall and skinny!

I'm here!

Wow the last couple months have been hectic for me with weddings, anniversary's, the fashion show, work and other projects.  I just have had no time to blog and I am really starting to miss it.  I have even done a couple make-up tutorials but had no time to edit the pictures.

The fashion show for Models on a Mission was a huge success raising over $5,500 for Joplin.  My friend Teisha is continuing Models on a Mission so be on the look out for new events.

The wedding I am helping to plan is really coming together and I can't wait to post pictures afterwards!  I completed designing the invitations, making the flowers for the flower girls, and now we are working on decorations.  It is going to look amazing.

My grandparents celebrated 50 wonderful years together.  Their party was great and I am so grateful I was able to share the day with them.  Jameson tried to steal the show when he started blowing kisses to the crowd and waving as they introduced us.
