Attending Tea Parties...
So a recap to the last couple weeks here in our household...
#1 Started phase one of our kitchen remodel.
#2 Phase one of our bathroom(s) remodel.
#3 Now have a stuffed panda bear to which Kobi named Bermisson. (Yeah no idea where that name came from but Kobi sure loves his Bermisson.)
#4 We now have a 2 year old that counts to 29 and is using full "long" sentences. He now tells us what he wants to eat (and if we don't have it to go buy it), dresses himself in the morning (and if he puts on that "frog shirt" one more time I'm going to say the dryer ate it! LOL!), tells mama that he is in love (with Miss Susan aka his teacher) and that he wants a sister to play with.
So these are just a few things happening in Kobi's world and on another note I have a new list of beauty products (well worth the money) for us busy mama's. Topping the list is Smashbox Photo Finish Light . This is a make-up primer worth the $36 bucks that I paid at Sephora. I have noticed that my make-up stays put all day long even when its a 100 degrees outside! (And I thought "primers" were just glorified lotion. LOL!) Next product in the running is GoSmile. My teeth did get whitter and I had no trays, no strips and no gum sensitivity. Personally if you just need to get a couple shades whitter pitch the Crest White Strips and spend a few bucks more for this stuff! Moving on I have learned that the Obagi line I use has changed formula's. Boo!!! Since the change I now have breakouts! Double Boo!! So a new 4-step line I am using is Philosophy "On a Clear Day" and so far I think its working. I have also added DDF "Sulfur Therapeutic Mask" into my routine and this is the first over-the-counter mask that has cleared up a breakout in under 12 hours for me. I'm impressed! Blush wise I still stand by my Nars (Mata Hari) because of its matte, pigment rich color and I have been using Mavala Double-Lash formula on my eyelashes every night which claims to make longer/ fuller lashes. Hmmm... yeah its crazy but I swear my lashes have grown longer??
So moving on I need pant recommendations! My favorite pants are Express's "Editor Fit" pants. I rate them higher then the Victoria's Secret Christie Fit pants and now I have noticed that they have made bigger pockets that now leave the line across your thigh look and I totally hate that! So I need pant recommendations people! Who sells good tight fitting, figure slimming, butt lifting pants? You would think this would not be a huge dilemma but for me to find time to try on 5 million different pants all over Maryland with my work schedule is just not happenin so someone out there in blogworld pleaseeee help! LOL!
***I promise that the next post won't be in another 19 days:)
