Big belly competition. I win!
Finally a happy photo with Santa!
We cut down our own Christmas tree today. Someone almost convinced me to bring home this pint-sized tree as well.
Trick or Treat!
Cinderella found out that she’s going to have a baby sister today!
I can already tell that she’s going to be a fantastic big sister at the end of March.
When asked about potential names for her new baby brother or sister, this is what she picked:
Princess Rapunzel Baby
She also has a lot of interesting ideas about the baby.
Sydney: Mommy is the baby sleeping?
Me: Yes, the baby’s sleeping in there.
Sydney: On a tiny bed in your belly? Does she also have a kitchen in there where she can make cereal?
Sydney: When the baby gets here, she’s going to ride in the backseat with me. We’ll take the baby to school and then you and me can go to work.
Me: Oh really?
Sydney: Yes, and I’ll drive the car with the baby in the back to go to the princess store. I’ll just leave the baby in the car and I’ll go inside to get a John Smith doll.
We’d like a constant picture-in-picture of Aly Raisman’s parents for the remainder of her Olympic appearances, please and thank you.
This was my favorite moment of the Olympics so far!
Will have to add this to my wishlist just based on its name alone: The Pretty Committee!
Benefit | Pretty Committee
This right here is in the running for “Best $38 I have ever spent” Award.
I am normally averse to prepackaged cosmetic sets because it seems like there are 1-2 duds in every kit that totally negate the cost-savings splashed on the box (this set for instance, is an “$86 dollar value!”)….
But when I went into Sephora on the hunt for an eye primer and some sort of summer-friendly blush - the salesgirl shoved this into my hand and said - “I really can’t let you leave the store without this.” The thing was….she wasn’t being annoying- she just knew that inside this make-up bag was the cosmic answer to my cosmetic prayers.
And now, I suppose, I am doing the virtual equivalent to you.
You’ve got to try it.
After buying one for myself, I convinced Ellie to pick up a set….she then bought one for my mama and now all three of us are obsessed with The Pretty Committee.
The set is described as one of “Benefit’s most brilliant bestsellers… this festive set gives all complexions a perky, pretty glow”
Perky Pretty glow? Count me in!
Inside you will find:
- La Bamba Blush - a perfect coral hue that adds a pop of pink to even already bronzed cheeks.
- Stay Don’t Stray Eye Primer - I use it on my lids and under my eyes as a fool-proof way to keep my eyeliner/eyeshadow from settling in any creases or running in the hell-fire heat we have been having this summer.
- Eye Bright - Dab this highlighting pencil on the inside corners of your eyes and right under the brow to give your eyes an instant lift. If this product can make my 7.5 month pregnant/toddler-at-home/full-time-working self look well-rested, I promise it will get the job done for any of you!
- High Beam - This liquid highlighter gives your complexion a luminescent glow….and provides a little sparkle without making you look like a fairy, or something (note: you only get the small sized high beam….which actually I much prefer for toting around in my make-up bag)
If you are on the hunt for some fun summer make-up products or if your cosmetic bag has been in need of a refresher….
You really ought to join The Pretty Committee.
You’ll love it!
Note: This post isn’t sponsored or anything- I just caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror during my 28th trip to the bathroom this morning and thought: “Dang, my make-up doesn’t look half bad”
and I remembered that I have been meaning to share this find with you guys for a while now. Hope you enjoy!
Pigtails are my favorite!
