this week i am in houston lovin' on my sister and her son jack. lillian & i are here for the week, helping set up the nursery, hang out and be as much help to my sister and her family as possible.
will post photos of our almost finished project soon, for now, a pic of lillian with her new found friend, bob, their golden retriever. she loves her pups.
so i apologize for my absence but things are busy and i am so enjoying this time.
love to all! hope 2012 is shaping up for a good year for you so far!
this week we have been soaking up the last of the warm sun. crazy i know because it is almost christmas but hey, we live in the south and that is why i love it here!
lillian on the other hand continues to obsess over the leaves. yes, the leaves. she can't get enough so it is a good thing fall lasts forever here. we hit the park and she could care less about the swings or the slides- it is all about the leaves people. i think if she could articulate to santa what she wants for christmas, it would be leaves.
on a completely different note, i have been really loving lipstick. every time i head to target (which if you ask my husband is far too frequently) i peruse the lipsticks on clearance and have accumulated quite a collection. and, have really been loving them all!
moisture renew in rouge by rimmel on clearance for 2.29 from target. i had to layer it a lot to get the rich red i wanted, and so would probably need to reapply fairly often, but really did love the smooth texture and it didn't bleed. this one will be making a christmas day debut :)
second, i have been loving revlon colorburst in carnation. it is such a pretty pink (not my usual to to color by any means) but i had seen a lot of this on pinterest and wanted to give it a go. and i LOVE it. wore it with black eye liner to hank's work christmas dinner and really enjoyed it.
when i am feeling very edgy i reach for my plum perfect by maybelline. it is pretty intense, a rich deep purple- rich but pretty.
lastly, i just found flame by covergirl. it is more of an orange-red and i think i might save this for the spring or so. it is brighter but i still really enjoy it!
so there you have it. thursday loves!
what are you loving as you get closer to christmas? feeling overwhelmed? now is a better time then ever to take a moment to pause, look around and be thankful for something that is really making you smile this week- amongst all the holiday craziness!
love to all.
