Line Me in Black.

I had a pretty crazy and action packed weekend in which I am still trying to catch up on my sleep. In the midst of the running around, partying, laughing, and just being silly I lost my eyeliner. I know, no big deal but eyeliner is one of the few things I feel that I must wear everyday along with filling in my eyebrows.

I have been using Makeup Forever's Aqua Eyes liner for the past year or so. It really has some great staying power, but the only thing I didn't like is that when I would sharpen it, it didn't have a nice fine point. Not sure if it the sharpener I use or if the liner is just that way. If you don't care about having a fine point this eyeliner works great.

So I have been going a few days without eyeliner because I haven't decided what I wanted to try next. This will be my everyday liner so I prefer a pencil because it is easier to apply. I love Smashbox creme liner for weekends, but that isn't so easy to apply in a moving car. I was just browsing Sephora's website and saw this:

I am currently using the Buxom Mascara and loving it. This eyeliner supposedly is self sharpening. Hmm who knows.

Anyone have good suggestions for a pencil eyeliner? It can be drugstore brand or something from Sephora. I'm just looking for something that is a bang for the buck and under $20.

P.S. I made the hair chop, but that will have to be on another post :)

O my!

When it comes to makeup, I like to make it as easy as possible. Most of the time my makeup is done in the car so the application needs to be pretty easy. I also carry my makeup around with me, so the less I have to carry around the better.

Lately I have been using Smashbox's O-Glow. It comes in this easy little tube and is applied with your fingers. The "gel" is clear as you squeeze it out, but gradually turns into a nice sheer pinkish color that matches your skin tone. I'm really loving it. They also have a formulation for bronzer and lipgloss, but this is the only one I have tried.

Do you have any easy to use products that you can recommend?

These past few weeks I haven't taken any pictures of my outfits because they just haven't been good enough. I do however have some from last month that I never got to share with you. So here is one that I wore to a co-ed bachelor party.

Top: Bebe, Jeans: Unknown, Shoes: Aldo, Bracelet: Forever 21

OK, so story about the Unknown jeans. I was going somewhere one day when clumsy me spilled a drink on my pants. I could not go out with a big drink stain on my pants so I pulled into Marshall's on the way and found these super cheap, but great fitting skinny jeans.

Head First

Life has been pretty busy still, I haven't updated my blog nor have I had the chance to look at other blogs I love. This past week I saw my husband maybe a total of 10 hours during the weekdays, which is very rare for us. We are both trying to conquer our dreams, or at least our dreams for right now. I love how we are both able to be our own person, do our own things, and still be the couple that loves being together.

We were hanging out with my family yesterday when my cousin said that he recently read a survey that asked women "at what age were you the happiest?" He said the majority replied with age 28. I sat there and thought about this, why 28? What is happening for everyone at that age that makes it the happiest? If 28 is the magic number, then I can't wait to see what life has in store for me because right now I feel like I am having the time of my life.

I am slowing gaining the confidence and dipping my toes in the water, not quite ready to dive in head first. One day I will be.
