Little Things

The title of this post is called "Little Things" because makeup is one of the little things that makes me feel better. After Olivia of course! Today she is FIVE MONTHS!! My beautiful baby is 5 months! Time is definitely flying by. She's been at her grandparents house this entire week and everyday I want to cry because of how much I miss her :( the house is so much quieter without her giggles and screams and baby shows playing in the back. We see her Saturday and my family keeps telling me to enjoy this little vacay but I cant. An extra hour of sleep is cool but I would rather loose all my sleep and be up with Olivia. Can you tell I miss my baby :(( haha Ok so my original motive for this post was to talk about MY SHITTY DAY AT WORK and how makeup is one of many things that makes me happy but I got distracted thinking about my cutie. Im not a pro makeup artist just a girl who loves makeup. Youtube is everything for beginners! I didn't start wearing makeup til 5 years ago and just got somewhat "good" at it during my pregnancy. The above pic is from my SNAPCHAT: @campbellsoup010 of my bathroom sink. We have 3 bathrooms and I designated one for just me ;) I ultimately want a makeup vanity and I planned on making our 3rd bedroom my makeup room but my husband said no -_- Still working on a good argument to get my way or brainstorm an idea of how to utilize the space so we can both get what we want. Hope your day was better than mine! Did I mention I cant wait to see Olivia and take her 5 month pics so her post can go up?? Moms can you feel me on this? Im so dramatic I know haha

Nice to see you...Again

This week at work has been super annoying and slow! Im sure we all feel that way at some point....just make sure it isn't a constant feeling. Today is my beautiful mothers birthday and tomorrow my parents are celebrating it on a yacht cruise! Jealous is the perfect word to describe my feelings on that haha As for my plans I have nothing too crazy going on....yet. What are all of your plans? Hoping its something fun :) Ok so before I end my short sweet welcome to the weekend post let me just get to some big news: ADELE IS BACK WITH A NEW SONG! Just listen and thank me later ;)

Home Tour: Kitchen/ Dining Area

So I decided to do my Home Tour post into split sections. Not only do I wanna show you our new place but I want to highlight certain things from each space(rhyming was totally not planned). Andddddddddddd Im still not ready for a complete tour post yet haha By splitting it up I can take my time.

Well, this is where we DONT eat any of our food haha When family comes over we do use it tho. When it's just Bryan, Olivia and I we cook dinner and eat it on the couch watching tv. Really bad on our part because we have carpet and Im the messiest eater. Ask my husband. Shoot, ask anybody! We do have little tv tray tables to eat on...ya know, to minimize the mess. Moving on, I plan on making that a collage wall. As you can see from my snapchat file pic(SC:campbellsoup010) with the drawn on imaginary pictures, that's my plan. Eventually. My parents had those bar stools in the backyard from YEARSSSSSS ago just collecting dust and when we moved into our first apartment my mom totally fixed em up to match our kitchen table. Thanks Mom you da bomb!

The actual kitchen is kinda lame in my opinion. Lovely and bigger than our last but who really wants to see my stove? Or my large number of chips stacked on the microwave? Or the sink filled with dirty dishes?? Yea, thought so. I just wanted to focus on our fridge. Covered in some magnets from my travels overseas, Polaroids, calendar with yummy pics, message board and marriage notes(post on that soon). Every morning when I get in my word I try to write down a new verse for the board. I would show you the inside of the fridge but I know I'd roll my eyes listening to comments about how I need "healthier" food inside haha Just let me enjoy my ice cream in the freezer and all my non paleo meal preps! haha I'll list some of the stores we shopped to make this area ours. Hope you enjoyed, thanks for reading and see you on my next home tour post :)

Beauty Tips

*For lovely lips, speak words of kindness
*For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people
*For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry
*For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day
*For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone
*People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anybody
*As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others
*The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be in her eyes, because that is the doorway to the heart, the place where love resides
*True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives and the passion that she shows. And the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows.
my faves are in bold. be beautiful everyone :) *picture found here*

Happy Friday! For those of us in SoCal Im sure we're all excited the rain and some gloom is here!! :D much needed & a great way, for me, to enter this weekend. Dont know what plans are in store yet but I do know that at some point Hotel Transylvania needs to be seen. Like, NEEDS to be. Last weekend we saw Sicarios at the drive in. I fell asleep so I missed the end :( Not that it was a bad movie but my husband should know, and anyone else who knows me, that at 9pm Im done for the night if Im not shaking my groove thang on a dance floor haha OH and Olivia has her first modeling job in two weeks! So excited for my daughter :) She's a natural in front of the camera so I just thought I'd share a couple pics I snapped of her today. Well I hope you all enjoy your weekend! I'll be back with another post later. Im creeping this one in while my steaks cook on the stove for tonight ;) see ya soon!

Cherry Bomb

I dont really do too many bold lipsticks because that's way out of my comfort zone. I love them but I feel like they dont look good on me. No Im not fishing for compliments when I say that but it's just me. My lips naturally have a dark tint so I'd rather stick to my never failing neutrals and pinks. The rare occasion I do branch out its with my MAC Russian Red or Wet N Wild Cherry Bomb. The color in the above photo is Cherry Bomb. If you've ever swatched, or own, the color Sin by MAC this is dupe for it. & steal at $1.99! Its glossy and I mentioned a while back(National Lipstick Day post) how I matte it out with translucent powder. This color is great for fall and what I wore to the pumpkin patch. Now I'll share my mommy and me selfies from that day wearing it ;) smooches!

Pumpkin Station

Yesterday afternoon we went to a pumpkin patch! It's my second time going ever haha the first was in Hawaii and now here in California. Both times the weather was super hot :( ready for official change! ugh!! We waited til around 6pm to head over when the sun was starting to go down so Olivia would be comfortable. This pumpkin patch had little games, slides, pumpkins(obvi!) and a petting zoo. Little Livy was too small to enjoy much but she was very alert and looking at everything around her. When she gets older I'll show her these pics. We ended up walking around then picking out some pumpkins to take home. I plan on monogramming them and using them in my fall decor :) post about that coming soon too! and this was an item checked off my "Fall Checklist" post. Yes! Hope your Friday was a good one. :)
