Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow Quad

I have been in desperate need of new eye shadows for a while now. I was scraping the pan on the last of my Urban Decay Naked palettes, and decided that even though I loved them, I wanted to try something new. I've heard great things about Anastasia Beverly Hills eye shadow singles...so I put together a little personalized quad.

December Loving

I can't believe Christmas is less than 2 weeks away! It has crept up so quickly this year. Even though I got most of my gift shopping done weeks ago, not one thing has been wrapped yet...so you all know what I'll be working on this weekend ;)

This is also the time of year that the major sales come about, so it's hard to not pick up one or two (or ten) things for yourself along the way. I'm sharing a few things today that I've purchased recently in various sales and with discount codes, and that I'm loving so far! 

Marin // 5-6 months

Time for another quick update on my little Bird! I'm a little late with this one as she turned 6 months old on November 18th...but better late than never, right?

Happiness // No.4

Friday, December 1, 2017


I'm not going to lie, this week has been a total doozy. Sometimes blogland and social media can seem so perfect, and portray only the "pretty" moments in people's lives...so I think it is good to keep it real on here from time to time. 

Starting the Saturday after Thanksgiving - Marin has been a total terror at night time. She won't go to bed, and then when she finally does...she never sleeps longer than 1-2 hours. On top of that, when she wakes up, she screams bloody murder and is inconsolable for sometimes upward of half and hour. That lasted for a good 5+ nights in a row. I know she is teething and also had a bit of sickness contributing, but that didn't make it any less difficult. (Don't worry, I've talked to the pediatrician and we've taken some steps to hopefully help her since this is totally not normal for her - it had me worried too!)

I've also been sick most of the week with a terrible sore throat and ear pain - all of which is viral, so in the doctor's words, I just need to "ride it out". Lovely.

Because of all the grumpiness and sleeplessness that has been going on at my house, I really wanted to sit down and do another post on things that have made me happy this week. Reminding myself that even when you are down in the trenches (of illness, parenting, whatever it may be)...there are always little bits of positivity to be thankful for.
