Lately I have the urge to try new things. Makeup is one of them. I go nuts in a makeup store like Sephora or Ulta. We could be in there for hours! There is a vlog coming soon on my shopping trip in Sephora. Gawd I love that store. Too bad they don't carry mark there, right?! I was shopping with my girlfriend and it was on her list of places she wanted to look. Well you cannot take me into a makeup store and expect me to behave. I was going up and down the aisles and stopping to try EVERYTHING. Brands that were a must on my list were: nars, makeup forever, and urban decay. I was sooo impressed with urban decay's 15 year palette. Amazing, outstanding, & brilliant!! Too bad they are on the higher end of brands. I may go back and splurge.

I left with a couple of things: nars blush called orgasm (Yes that really is the name) and nars sheer matte foundation in syracuse. These were on the high end too. The blush was $27 and the foundation was $45. I love both of the products. I'm not sure I will splurge on the blush again. That was really expensive for a blush. What made me do this? I love the sparkles. I've always been attracted to shiny/sparkly things LOL. The foundation is $45 compared to mark which is $10. I would spend $45 again because it really is a great foundation. It does not expire after four months (most foundations do- so make sure to throw it away. Bacteria will form and cause skin problems). Nars foundation expires after a year. The cost will add up to the same as one nars foundation product.

BTW im still loyal to my mark products ^_^. I like trying new things, but I still have my favorites.

Nina + Bryan Meadow Creek Farm Wedding

We started the day with sun however we heard the rumbling thunder in the background during the ceremony and started to sprinkle during the reception. It was a humid September day and was sunny outside when I walked into the wedding venue. Bridesmaids laughter, sweet music, and popping of champagne were starting around the Bride's room. The girls were in their matching floral monogrammed robes and helping each other get their makeup done. They looked stunning!

My favorite part was their first look. Nina and Bryan have such a sweet relationship and they celebrated with so much love and joy through the day. I adored how sweet and caring they were during the day, he couldn't keep his eyes off of her during the first look. And she teared up, but had a huge smile standing with him during the first look. It was the best! I loved capturing them!!!

It was truly an honor to be capturing their day! It was such a beautiful wedding! Bryan and Nina were surrounded by so much love and joy fr…

my look back on 2017

2017 was a fantastic year! Sorry but there are ton of photos. More than years past!! We did so much this year and I wanted to get it all in. I love documenting our memories and being able to look back, reflect and cherish all of these moments.  It is the best part of this blog. I LOVE being able to look at these photos and go back to that time for a second. It's so cool how you look at a photo and all these feelings from that moment flood back to you!! SO MUCH FUN!

Tips on taking a toddler to Disney World

I got some funny looks when I told people we were taking Haylee to Disney. I know some would say she is too small among many other things, however we did it! Did we get lucky? Maybe! She was the perfect age to ride the rides and meet the characters. Some people thought Disney would not have small rides for children, but maybe surprised that it's the best place for toddlers! The trip was so worth it! Haylee smiled and laughed the entire time. We made so many great memories and we can't wait to go back! If you're here to read all the details on how or what we did at Disney World then stick around!
What we packed:

-Disney clothes. We made our own shirts for the trip. Haylee wore a shirt with Minnie Ears and her monogram. It cost us only $12.  I also bought our Mickey ears from the Disney Store Outlet at the mall on sale for $7! They are around $20 at the parks. You could also purchase Disney character shirts at your local retail store. Buying shirts at Disney World can run y…
