Day Dates With My Husband

Day dates are quickly becoming one of my favorite things. I remember before having kids, I said to my hubby that every night was a date night. We would go out for a bite, see a movie, or even just hang at home…but every night together honestly felt like a date. Since having kids, night times have been a little different. 😉 So carving out little batches of time here or there, whether for an outing or just for a coffee,…

Copper Halo Eyeshadow

One of the great things about having a job that pays me to play with makeup, is creating fun looks like this Copper Halo Eyeshadow tutorial. I’ll admit, I never really thought about playing with colors like this before. I always thought, being a green-eyed lass, that I should steer towards the more purple colors on the spectrum, but let me tell you, this copper quad blew me away. And better yet, I believe it would be flattering on all…

Red Ombre Lips | Stoic and Sizzling Splash Lipstick

Maybe I’ll have a wedding to attend, or a fancy date night, but normally I’m spending time at home with my two littles playing with playdough or outside in the snow. So when my hubby and I had the opportunity for a date night on New Year’s Eve, I jumped on the opportunity to have a reason to have a full face of glam makeup.…

Browns, Nudes & Football

Last weekend was a blur of activity, filled with seeing old college friends, a fast paced visit with one of my besties and her babe for 21 hours, and a movie date night with my main squeeze. The weather was crisp, clean and ideal for October in New England. Watching a football game, listening to the marching band, and eating kettle corn was exactly what I needed!…

Stranger Things Makeup Tutorial

Stranger Things Makeup Tutorial

I started watching the first season of Stranger Things as soon as it came out on Netflix. The characters, nostalgia of the 80’s, and constant pop culture references sealed my fate. Netflix had recommended the show 98% to me, and boy was it right! Shortly after delving into about 4 episodes, I begged my husband to join in the fun, and together we began at the beginning. Because Season 2 of Stranger Things is coming out tomorrow, I thought I…
