Swing of Things

Coat: Gap
Blouse: Old Navy
Skirt: H&M
Shoes: Seychelles
Lipstick: Revlon Lip Butter in Sugar Plum 

Where do I begin?!?  I am ecstatic to be back!  So much has happened in the past year, and I can't wait to catch up with you.  I've had an adorable baby boy after a horrific pregnancy, started a new job as a junior high youth minister, Darin lost his job, got a better one, and I am now obsessed with makeup.  Here's the makeup I wore today:
Odd picture, but you get the point:
Garnier BB Cream
Benefit Bella Bamba blush
Benefit Hoola bronzer
TheBalm Mary-Loumanizer highlighter
Pixi Correction Concentrate in Brightening Peach
Benefit Stay Don't Stray (as under eye primer)

Tarte Clean Slate Creaseless Eye Primer
Urban Decay Psychedelic Sister, Woodstock, and Sin eyeshadows
TheBalm 'Matt Smith'
Benefit Bad Gal mascara

Revlon Colorburst lipstick in Soft Nude
Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine

Taylor Swift Wonderstruck (It was FREE, okay?)

When I was pregnant, nothing fit, and anything that did fit made me feel worse.  Gone were the days of my fun hats, colorful tights, and sky-high shoes!  To make myself feel better, I did my makeup every day, whether I went out of the house or not.  I watched many hours of YouTube tutorials throughout the sleepless nights of vomiting and hip/sciatic pain, and learned a lot!  I am no makeup expert, but I am having a wonderful time playing with it.  Cosmetics are a great way of expressing yourself when your clothes don't fit.  I will incorporate some 'beauty' into this ghost of a blog, in hopes to inspire those of you who are interested in makeup but don't know where to start.  

Here goes nothing, everybody.  Thank you for coming back!
