30 Day Makeup Challenge – Day 18

Hello everyone!

I am posting early in the day! Going to try to get a few post scheduled for the week but not my face post of course. I was thinking this morning when I was putting my makeup on this morning about the reason I did this challenge. I did it because I wanted to see how I would feel at the end of my 30 days. I can honestly say that I has been a crazy ride.  In the last few weeks, I have really liked having makeup on. No matter if I went somewhere or not, it was nice to know that I had it on and I felt more ready for the day. I could go to the commissary and I felt more put together. I have notice that it has helped me feel more confident. I felt like I was being a better mom.

I know this sounds crazy like ” wow this lady had problems if makeup is making her feel like a better mom” but really I just felt ready to go and felt good. When mama feels good, everyone else feels good too! I was also thinking about if I would continue my journey with this makeup. I do believe that I will wear makeup more often now. I just like how I feel. Growing up in high school, I had makeup on every day. I would occasionally not wear it when I was sick or just not feeling it. When I told my husband about this, his first words were ” This sounds expensive”, and I have to admit it may be a little expensive. I am thinking I will start trying to use drug store makeup. I have been using slightly more expensive makeup because I like it more. But if I am going to wear makeup every day, I could try more affordable choices.

What kind of makeup do you wear? How does it make you feel when you are wearing it?

Until next time fabulous readers!

30 Day Makeup Challenge day 16 and day 17

I am sorry! Gosh, I am starting to get going bad! HA HA I did take my picture yesterday of my makeup! I am excited to get my picture today too. I took my picture yesterday with my makeup on before we started to do our workout.

My husband and I are doing the Insanity challenge and we are super excited! I am loving this workout! It is getting us! My husband is a Marine so he likes this style of workout as well. It keeps his attention and it has worked for 3 weeks so far. I am loving it because I am seriously seeing results already after 3 weeks! I am excited!

Remember to check back tomorrow because there is an awesome giveaway!

Makeup Challenge Day 14

Hello everyone!

I am so sorry, I am such a bad blogger! This week has been super busy for me! I promise to get your post up today for your Work at home Wednesday! We woke up today to no power! Just think, your alarm clock ( I have that runs on batteries only) and everything is off. Well I mean of course everything is usually off in the house such as lights ha ha, but I mean the ceiling fan was out as well. It was crazy. I called the electric company, apparently over 800 residents had no power! It wasnt just me! That made me feel good!  So in the dark I make my children’s sandwiches for lunch, ( I try to have everything else already made and ready to go.) and get everything packed. While I was looking for extra candles, my daughter  started to get so excited. Everything was coming back on!

It is amazing how all of a  sudden how when your lights are off, it can throw your day off. Well, here is my picture for the day.

Makeup Challenge Day 13

Hello Everyone!

Today is day 13! I can’t believe next week will be my last week of my challenge. I was thinking about this yesterday. Will I still want to put makeup on and continue or will I do it almost every day but still take time off? I am not sure yet. Kinda excited about it though! I am really excited, In a few weeks I am going to be going home to Houston! I can’t believe that we get to go home. We have been away for a long time! I can’t wait to see my family.

Today is Work at Home Wednesday and I promise I will get your post up today! I am thinking of doing this every other Wednesday. It will make it easier on me and I want to make sure I keep up my blogging. I am looking to try to get my blog more popular.. Just haven’t found the magic button yet..

Today’s makeup is dark and natural. Well that doesn’t really make sense does it? I am wearing eyeliner and mascara instead of full eye makeup. I am wearing a black dress and it kind of goes with the look.

Without further a due, here is my picture for today:


Until next time:







30 Day Makeup Challenge- Day 12

Hello Everyone!

I am sorry  I didn’t get a chance to post yesterday! I was very very very busy running around doing things for my kids and husband.  I promise I did wear makeup during the day. I did a very natural look yesterday. I had mascara and powder on. Not too much and we decided to do one last swim for the year so I washed it off early in the day.

So I have a few questions for you today! First is, Have you ever bought coupons online? Have you ever noticed at the bottom of the coupon, it says you can not buy them…..  I have seen an influx of coupons for sale online and I wanted to get your opinions about this very subject.

A second question I have is, How do you like to wear your makeup? Do you like it light and fresh or do you like it dark and dramatic?

Well Without further a due… Here is day 12



Until Next TIME….
