Paint the Town Red

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Yes, this is a complete and full on selfie. As a new mom, sometimes it's the best I can do to snap a pic before baby calls. Let's be honest, she's the queen of the house.

So lately I've been loving red lips. For years I've shied away from any colored lipstick or gloss and told myself I couldn't pull it off. I thought that because I had "thin lips" I had to wear neutrals and skin tone shades. This year I decided to throw my inhibitions about lipstick out the window and finally try out the bright red lips I've always wanted to. And you know what? I am absolutely loving it! Why did I wait so long to try it out?

I bought Wet n Wild's Silk Finish Lipstick in Hot Red. Once again this was under $2, is cruelty free, and really, it looks just as good as department store brands.

I'm definitively going to be trying out their other bold colors, which you can find a link to here.

If you've been avoiding certain makeup or hair colors because you've told yourself you can't pull it off, try it out! I've learned that with confidence, you can rock anything.

Okay, gotta go. Baby calls!

Newborn pictures

I can't believe my baby girl is almost a month old! When I was pregnant I felt like time went by so slowly, now everything seems to be in fast forward. Here are my favorite newborn shots of Kenzie by Kastleman Photography. She looks so sweet in all the headbands and tutu's! I loved how these turned out, and it was so fun to get a picture of my baby with all my books!

The pictures from baby Kenzie's newborn shoot are here! Jen from Kastleman Photography took these and I am so happy with how they turned out. She was able to capture the moment perfectly (visit her page here). 

I love this girl, love this boy, and love being a mamma.
