Weekending + Giveaway

Hello there Monday, you sure popped up again fast! Another fabulous weekend in the books, the perfect combo of relaxation and fun gone too quickly.


I'm loving my latest voxbox from Influenster which included two of the new highliners from the Marc Jacobs Beauty collection. I received #41 (Earth)quake and #43 (Brown)ie which are a dark brown and a medium brown respectively. The collection has a range of colors from bold and fun to subtle and neutral. The looks you can create with these crayons are endless! They're great for defining the eye, or smudging to create a more dramatic look for a night out. I love how pigmented they are, and how they'll last up to 12 hours which will take you from day to night.

Highliner Matte Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner - Marc Jacobs Beauty



Scenes from the weekend:


I had to try out the edible cookie dough that Katie posted about last week, and man alive it's dangerous! I had to restrain myself from eating the whole jar over the weekend. I found it at Target, and they also had birthday cake and peanut butter flavors. You're welcome....


Saturday night, we headed to downtown Orlando for the first time in what felt like forever since a friend's brother was in town and wanted to check out Wall Street. The area is closed off from traffic, and once you're admitted you have access to several bars with live music and drink specials, and there are bars in the middle under the stars as well. It tends to be a younger crowd for us old peeps, but we had a great time.

A few weeks ago I mentioned that my mom was finally opening an Etsy shop to showcase all of her wonderful creations. Just to name a few items she's handmade for me over the years ~ me and my cousin's flower girl dresses in our aunt's wedding, my junior prom dress, my wedding veil, Serena's bedding including the crib blanket, sheets, and dust ruffle, the tutu and headband she wore going home from the hospital, a star baby bunting, hand knitted baby hat, booties, and jacket, and the prettiest infinity scarves. She also hand-makes custom tuffet stools which is a labor of love. I'm so excited that she's finally showcasing her talent, and wanted to introduce you all to her newly opened Etsy shop Nana Faith Creations.

  37. A Marc Joacobs Voxbox??!! I would be sooo excited to try those products. Congrats to Nana Faith for getting her Etsy shop up and running! I didn't know she made the tutu and headband for baby fashionista. When I find out the sex of Crystal's baby (should be this week) maybe I'll have your mom make something customized hopefully in time to give Crystal when she visits late next month ;-) Does she do baby blankets?
