So I recently did a empties video/post which just shows you the beauty products I have gone through and I told you my thoughts on them. Well with a lot of my beauty products being emptied Its time to go shopping! I was dying to try a new foundation I saw at the drugstore , and I took the liberty of purchasing a few new things & old faves as well.
I am currently looking for a new straightener so let me know which one you love!! I really need a new one so if you have any suggestions let me know!!! I love hearing from you beautiful ladies!
Till Next Time,
Remember, Beauty comes from within , so let yours shine!
Today I have some exciting news! We bought a home! We are so excited about it , but the only thing is we need décor for it! So I decided to do a Home Décor haul for you guys to show you what I recently bought for my home. I will be doing several of these in the near future so keep a look out for these! When my house is finally all decorated then I will do a home tour as well! So theres lots to look forward to so make sure you stay updated.
So the style I am going for is Shabby Chic , I found that the most affordable way to go with this is checking yard sales & thrift stores. Why? because antique stuff is found there all the time for really inexpensive prices! For everything I bought it cost me only $30.00, its incredible! I am so excited to have the chance to redo my whole home in the style I like!
I will also be doing DIY as well because I need to refurbish some furniture & what not!
What is your home style? What is your favorite paint colors to have in your home?
I am going to start painting and redoing the flooring in my home starting in April so give me some advice!
Till Next Time,
Remember, Beauty Comes from within So let yours shine!
So today im showing you my empties. What does that mean? These are products I have completely used up and are basically going in the trash. So why am I showing you my trash? Well now that I have completely used them up I have pretty much made up my mind on whether I would buy them again or whether they are just terrible products! So Im going to give you my OPINION of them..
So its been a crazy week but I wanted to put up a post for you beautyful ladys & Gents. I have been moving all week long ! We are getting a house! I am so excited about it so excited that I already filmed a home decor haul video and I’ll have it up pretty soon (as well as a blog post). If you want to see how I did my makeup today check it out..
Enjoy your Spring break!
Dont forget, beauty comes from within , so let yours shine!
Its early , I’m up and the kids are cozy in their beds still. Perfect time to share this makeup look with you beauties. I was recently looking through my makeup and realized that their is a lot of IPSY products that I have not tried yet! What!! I know pretty crazy, so I took everything out that I have not tried yet & made this beautiful makeup look with it. I also did a easy video tutorial to go along with this post for all you visual learners!
So the star of the show today is the Olive Green pigment , it is gorgeous! As soon as I saw it I new I had to make a look around this color! You don’t usually see wearable olive green eye makeup, but I think that this look turned out pretty darn wearable!
They Key to making a intense eye look wearable is making your face makeup & Lips look as natural as possible. So here are the products I used & the steps to create this look. Again If you are more visual then check the tutorial!
Step #1 : Prep
It is so important to prep your skin for makeup! Taking care of your skin is so important because it keeps your skin look smooth & less aged. Nobody wants to look 40 at 25!
1. Moisturizer first
2. Face Primer second
3. Exfoliate those beautiful lips too!
Step #2 : Makeup
Its time to apply some makeup & create a beautiful unique olive eye look. (which makes all eye colors look gorgeous especially brown or honey eyes!)
1. Apply a warm brown eyeshadow pencil to the lid & crease, then use your finger to blend it out. (this will be your base.. Do the eyes first so if you have any fall out it won’t mess up your face makeup.)
2. Then use a Midtone Cool brown (Blue heart) to apply into the crease & blend it out real well. (this is going to act as our transition color which will help blend the olive out better)
*the key in this eye look is blending really well so take your time doing this with a fluffy CLEAN blending brush!
3. Apply the olive green with a eyeshadow brush onto the out half of the lid & toward the crease. I used this pigment dry so instead of swiping with the brush just pat the color onto the lid; slowly building up the color.( don’t worry about fall out thats why we didn’t do our face makeup first!) Then blend the green and the crease color together using a Clean blending brush.
4. Apply the light pink in the duo underneath the brow to highlight & in the inner most corner of the eye.
5. Apply the Gold in the duo in the inner half of the lid and with the eyeshadow brush you are using carefully blend the olive green and gold together to make a smooth transition.
Face: (im skipping to the face next but I will be back to finish the eyes later!)
1. Apply your concealer & foundation
2. apply a brightenng concealer in an inverted triangle shape under the eyes to brighten , then powder your face
3. apply a bronzer to the hallows of your cheeks for a subtle contour
4. use a light natural pink blush
5. highlight your cheek bones for a beautiful glow
6. apply a lip stain to your lips (this is what gives your look such a natural effect the stain looks natural!) also apply the stain to the apples of your cheeks to add a naturally flushed appearance.
Eyes: (go back to the eyes to finish )
1. apply the eyeshadow pencil to lower lash line & blend with finger.
2. apply the mid toned brown to the lower lid & add the gold shadow to the inner ⅓ of lower lid
3. apply a black eyeliner to the tight line & a green eyeliner to the waterline
4. apply a liquid liner to the upper lashes making a cat eye winged liner.
5. apply mascara & false lashes if needed!
Thats it , I know it seems like a lot of steps because I really broke everything down so that I could be more detailed. This really is a fast look to accomplish and anyone can do this look! I hope you will try it out & use the hashtag #bondbeautyfullooks so that I can see too!

It has been so crazy since I last talked to you guys. So on Thanksgiving day my husband dislocated & fractured his shoulder. Then two weeks ago I got a cold which escalated to bronchitis then this last week my son got a cold and ear infections! Finally today we are both feeling much better and I can take some time to share a blog post! I am not 36 weeks it is crazy and this is only my 32 week pregnancy blog post I am so sorry about that! We are thinking the baby is coming either this week or next so I hope I can catch up before then . If I can’t don’t worry I will catch up!
So today I wanted to share with you a Special Event, My Gender reveal party!
Since this is baby number two I wanted to keep the gender a secret and do a gender reveal instead of a baby shower. So I kept it a secret from my family and friends and finally got around to doing a barbecue / gender reveal party. So we made hotdogs and had blue and pink cupcakes. We also had pink lemonade and blue punch. we had fruit as well.
I made the invitation all myself on pic monkey just in case you were wondering. I also made picture props so that everyone could cast there vote of what they thought baby would be before we revealed it.
Here are all the fun pictures we did…
Then We went ahead and did a big family picture and made it semi funny…
Then we went ahead and let the kids hit a piñata to reveal the gender, the candy inside was blue so it is a BOY! For some reason I don’t have the pictures of them actually hitting the piñata sorry guys but here is our last family pic and obviously everyone and their mother thought it was going to be a girl!
We also did little prizes for those who guessed right! They were simple boy toys we got from the dollar store!
After we ate and we revealed the gender we all had a water balloon fight. It was so fun watching all the kids going crazy!
Gender Reveal was such a fun thing to do specially the pictures. I am going to put the pictures in Durhams Baby book that way he can see who thought he was going to be a girl or boy..
Remember, Beauty comes from within so let it shine!
