Lipsense Lipstick // Beauty Post

As a makeup artist, I am constantly trying to find the perfect lipstick colors & long wear for my clients! I am lipstick obsessed and literally wear it every single day so when Lipsense came out it just seemed too good to be true. Luckily, my sweet friend Ali started selling it and convinced me to give it a try! And wow, I have fallen in love and absolutely joined the Lipsense craze!

There are around 70 different shades and I had the hardest time choosing which color I wanted. Since it's fall, I went with sheer berry- a beautiful plum color that has been the perfect compliment to all my fall outfits. Hands down, the best part about this lipstick is it stays on your lips ALL DAY and doesn’t transfer onto anything! I can finally kiss my baby & hubby without constantly having to wipe my lipstick off their faces:)  You can also eat, drink, and talk without it moving at all. Seriously amazing!


I will say it took me a couple times of trail and error when I first started using Lipsense. Luckily, it comes with a remover so any errors you make when applying can be very easily corrected:)

  •        Start by exfoliating your lips with a damp towel. Clean lips are key to get a gorgeous result!
  •        Apply 3-4 layers of the color and make sure to wait a few seconds in between each application.  
  •        When your final layer is dry, that’s when you apply the gloss. The gloss makes it look beyond amazing! You will need to reapply the gloss throughout the day to keep the color looking beautiful and vibrant all day long!

I can't wait to add every color to my makeup kit and start using it on all my beautiful clients. I just ordered the colors Praline Rose & Roseberry!

Farewell Sweet Summer// Beach Pics

 I can't believe this summer has already come and gone! We made it to Utah and are finally feeling settled in our little blue house in downtown Provo. We only live 2 minutes away from 4 of our siblings and it has been everything! It was another amazing beach trip this year in Newport at my families home away from home! We were bummed that Rainey wasn't able to come because of his new MBA program that just started up this summer. Quinny had lots of aunties and uncles to love on him the whole week and he was in heaven chasing all the huge waves and playing in the sand with his cousins. He had zero fear of the water and couldn't get enough beach time. He is definitely my baby. Now we just need to figure out a way to move here ASAP.

Texas Home Tour

Our first home has been something special and we have been loving making it our own! 
The biggest update we have done so far is painting the kitchen cabinets and wall colors. 
I've always dreamed of a white kitchen so we had a painter come in and spray paint the cabinets white and he also painted all the walls grey. The natural light in this house is one of the major reasons why I fell in love with it, just something about bright big windows makes me the happiest. Quinns favorite part is of course having a yard to play in and going to our neighborhood pool everyday.

 We have recently had a huuuuge change of plans over the last month!  Rainey has an opportunity go back to school and get his masters degree in Utah this fall. I still can't believe it, but in the fall we will back in Utah for a year! 
We are currently looking for nice renters to take care of our Allen home for us while we are living in Utah:) We will be really sad to leave it here but we are always up for a new adventure!

Teepee Love// 18 months

Teepee// Land of Nod
Qs whole outfit // Target
My shirt// Hope Ave

 Sooo much love for these photos of my wild boy in his teepee!
 Thanks to my girl Alison for always capturing such special photos for us!
This nut keeps me busy with his crazy escape plans from his crib and his speedy sprints and face-plants everywhere he goes.
He has at least five cuts and scrapes on each leg at all times lately.
 He's mostly naughty but sometimes can be a sweetheart and can give me the BEST open mouth kisses and back pat hugs! This stage has been a bit of a struggle and adjustment for us but we are embracing it and learning and laughing everyday with this kid!
