Goals, Changes, & My First Giveaway Coming Up

Good evening, Lovelies! It’s been a while since my last post, as I have had a very restless, teething baby girl on my hands. During the last couple of weeks, I spent some time thinking about a few things.

First of all, when I started this blog, my goal was at least a post a day, and hopefully 2. Well, I didn’t think about the time it takes to take photos, choose the best photos, re-read and edit my writing, etc. – all while still trying to balance time with Boy, playing with my 7 month old & my kitty, and working a full time job. Whew! I got exhausted just writing that out. I am a little bit of a perfectionist, so I started to feel like I was letting myself down and got frustrated when I didn’t get everything done (let’s not even think about all the laundry and dishes! Yikes!). I’m so thankful to have such an involved and helpful boyfriend, otherwise I really don’t know what I’d do!! So I decided to give myself a break and my new goal is just to be more regular and do 1-2 posts a week. If that means writing a little bit over a few days while baby girl sleeps rather than writing all in one sitting, then so be it!

Today is Mila’s 7 Month Birthday!!!

Hi Everyone! I’m gonna keep this post short and sweet… My daughter Mila turned 7 months old today!!! Boy, does time fly!

Her dad sent me a little video of her playing and smiling while I was at work & it made my day so I wanted to share it with you. The quality is not the best because it was taken on an iPhone, but I still thought it was super cute (though I might be a little biased).

Hope you all had a great day! xoxo 🙂

Update: LORAC Look Twitter Contest

Hello beauties! I realized that I had posted this on Twitter and Facebook, but failed to put it up on my blog! So first things first: shame on me!

I wanted to let you know about a contest that LORAC is having on Twitter. They are picking one winner every Friday for 4 weeks  to win the new Fall 2012 LORAC PRO line, and this Friday will be the last. I found out about it last week and actually won!! There is still time to enter – I would get your submission in by Thursday, because the time the winners are announced on Fridays seems to be variable. If you are interested in more information click here to see the LORAC contest announcement and a look at what you can win. Basically, you take a picture of your best look using LORAC cosmetics and post it on Twitter making sure to use the hashtag #LORACLook, then they have a panel who picks the winner.

Here is the look I submitted using the LORAC Pro Palette that was chosen as the week 3 winner. I am hoping to get a video tutorial of the look posted this weekend for you. 🙂

For those of you who didn’t already see this on Twitter or Facebook, I apologize for the short notice. I encourage you to enter and wish you the best of luck!!
