makeup monday: beauty haul

In this haul:

maybelline dream bouncy blush in rose petal $6
maybelline great lash mascara $6
 mary kay mineral powder foundation - gift

Readers, this is my first ever haul! I never have bought this much in one time. Now I can actually do a haul. I'm not sure how those other girls do it! Ha! I admire their hauls though. I envy them.

Why now? Well, I left my beauty bag at home one day and had to buy makeup to get me thru the day.  So I tried great lash mascara and dream bouncy blush.

First the mascara. It was okay. I know its a classic, but i'm not crazy about it. The brush and formula made my lashes clump together. Not good. It did nothing for me. However, the price on this mascara is awesome.

Second the blush. I have been wanting to try this,  I've been told to try it (sorry for the long wait) and now I have it! I like it. It blends well. It is a pretty color (rose petal). Not sure I would repurchase at the moment. Maybe, I need more play time with this blush.

Last, Mary Kay mineral powder foundation in bronze. My awesome friend Katie gave me this. I love free makeup! The color was a true match for me. That amazed me. First impression was perfect. It matched me, covered, and was light on my skin. Totally love and recommend this. Great foundation!

Have a great week guys! I'm off to watch the Bachelorette.  ^__^

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! I hope ya'll had a great year as well and if not... there is much to look forward in the New Year! It's a new beginning!

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…

Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm

This turned out to be a great day for the Strawberry patch at Patterson Farm! It was cloudy but warm and perfect for picking strawberries. It was calling for rain but we didn't see a drop thankfully. This was an early Mother's Day trip for us. We have come to this farm every year to pick strawberries and i'm so glad we had another great trip! 
Haylee told all of her friends she was going to the Strawberry patch and she was so excited! It's the perfect date or family outing. It's for everyone! Picking strawberries in the patch and having a homemade ice cream is a great way to spend quality time together. Hope you enjoy photos from our visit to Patterson Farm!
