Blue lace and white pants.

Well, everyone’s been talking about their white pants.Their white pants, got their white pants on.

OK, so this is actually the only pair of white pants I own, weird I know. I love the way white pants look. However, with a 4yr old, they are a dirt and dirty hands magnet. For instance he wiped his Doritos laden hands on my pants later in the day. Yup. Nice. And since I too am also a klutz it is a reason why I never wear white pants. I have white skirts, and i fear for them every time I wear them. #momlife That is just how it is I guess. Right?

So what made me bring them back out? Well, since my little is in school now I figured why not?! SO I wore these cute Target white cropped skinnies with my Express shirt that I have had for ages just always wear it tucked in with a maxi or or midi skirt. Like in this post here . So yup. And pulled out my old DOONEY  . But alas, his school day was cut short as he was not himself. Sometimes meltdowns happen and so it really takes it out of the kid. But, this turned out to be later he is sick AGAIN. There were several littles not in class for being sick. Got to love that they share Everything. Right? NO….somethings they SHOULD not share. Germs..ugh. Oh well. And so he got home and I made him some food for a snack and my pants became victim of little.

That is OK, I am used to it and that my friends is why there is Spray n’ wash.

OOTD bloggerSO this was another outfit I was going to shoot elsewhere and ended up doing it at home because of reasons above. We have to make do. But it still worked out.

Sam and I made it work. If you don’t know who SAM is read this post here . We got it done.

Things were alright. Except the lack of sleep last night do to new big boy bed and coughing, sneezing, snotty nose, and grumpy child.

Poor kid and poor mama.

What can you do, I just let him sleep in the bed after the 4th time of getting into bed with us after hearing how he was breathing.

Is that bad?

Andromeda

I hate you, I love you. I hate that I love you, your facial animations make me want to barf some…..OK, so this is supposed to be a post for a Techy Thursday(I’m bringing it back) but then it isn’t, because I wanted to do a makeup tutorial of some makeup that really NO one would wear today because yeah it is from a video game. And a little rant about Mass Effect Andromeda. Which if you have anyone that plays video games you may have heard some rants. Mostly about animations being a bit first gen  and glitches all over the place. In my case I had an NPC(non player character) walk though a wall and disappear thus causing me to restart. UGH. SO, what is today’s post about? Well, I wanted to share the makeup from that game, One of the looks actually. When my hubby started his game we both went BLEH! WHAT? WHat is that? EWWW. Who would…why? Not to say that people wouldn’t like that particular eye look. We are maybe just being picky.


Looks like her head is trying to fall off..

Seriously BIOWARE, the makeup options future or not were subpar.There is not a whole lot of hair options as far as style and as far as faces. I really love Bioware games, a lot of women do. Really, just look at all of us who LOVE the Cullen Dating and Dorian epic bff simulator, I mean Dragon Age Inquisition. I get it is the future. I get it. Just like how everyone in the 60’s thought we would be in flying cars and dress a certain way and really here we are dressing like it is a more updated 1969. I am not saying the game as a whole sucks, no far from it. Damn it is fun, so much fun! But, the small things that can turn into big things. Annoying things just take the wind out of the sails. Sails for a AAA game that had so much hype and yet fell flat. Really, I am scared Dragon Age will have the same fate. Which Inquisition is so beautiful.  Don’t rush games, we can wait. Impatiently, but we will wait. We will still spend our money when the finished product comes out. The potential was there. It was there. How will it bounce back? I still am going to play the heck out of Mass Effect because it is fun. I might just grumble a bit over the little things…

Mass Effect Andromeda
We both like purple, BFFs?

OK, So enough of that, lets look at this here makeup.

Straight from your Pathfinder Nexus Salon…..

milani foundation and NYX concealer

not really….

You can pick colors! And transparency.

lets see you can pick blue

This is one of the looks! I am not even kidding!

Or purple….

 

 

Isn’t we wont even get into the neon blush and spotted shadow. For that I think a cream would be needed.  You can also pick mermaid colored hair, however hair options are also very limited. Which was also a complaint of Dragon Age, which leads people to Modding. With modding you can get better customization. Right now I haven’t heard of much Modding for Mass Effect, I know there is for DAI, for PC.

I got help a bit.

So really, there isn’t much to this “look”

If you cosplay it would be easy to recreate as there isn’t much thought to it. I used The Milani foundation 2 in 1 concealer foundation and Nyx concealer. Although with this you really don’t need the concealer for under eyes..because um you are a purple raccoon. You basically just apply in a small square from eyebrow to right above the orbital bone(cheekbone) I then added a bit of a darker blue and black to the crease and corner of my eyes, followed up with black eyeliner. it is such a silly thing.

I woke up from Hypersleep like this.

HAHAHAHA I hope you had as much fun laughing at this as I did, doing this “look” are there any other video game makeup you want me to do? This was fun!

Skreened tee and Miista Sandals

Skreeened mordor shirt and Miista shoes
Wearing : Skreened tee // Express jeans similar // MIISTA sandals // Mohzy tech bag// Urban decay VIce city trap queen lipstick

So yeah this shirt is on repeat.I can’t help it. I love a good basic graphic tee. And this one makes me so happy to wear, even if it has to do with a place not so happy in Middle Earth. The Mordor shirt from Skreened is one that is comfy and I never get tired of. Paired with a great pair of flares like these from EXPRESS and some gilded MIISTA sandals you can not go wrong. For a pop of color I added a micro bag(something that is weird for a big bag lady like me) . And I love the fact my hair is starting to get angry a sure fire way to say hey summer is coming! My hair, is getting poofy and trying to go back to curly.

one does not simply walk in

Everyone needs a sam.

Have you noticed that in everyone needs their own Sam? In LOTR Frodo has a Sam, in GOT John Snow has a Sam, Dean has a Sam, and I think in Mass Effect(my own opinion) your tech implant has a name SAM.SO, since I take my own pictures I have decided to name my silly ass tripod SAM. What made me think of this was actually a bit on Instagram, a blogger was talking about how her little sometimes takes her pictures and the weird looks she gets. And I thought, that is why I take my own. But, the weird looks I get are as I have said before Daunting. It feels a tad narcissistic sure. OK, a lot.

Being a blogger especially a blogger that write primarily about outfits and fashion etc, I take pictures of my outfits. And I like getting out of the house sometimes to do so. So, weird looks are part of the territory for me and SAM. (pfftheh) Like today, weird looks from passer byes. Lots of them, and I just went on my business. If they want to know what I am up to they could stop the cars and ask or walk up and ask. I probably (you all know my problems with this kind of stuff) would nervously say what I am doing and or awkwardly state it in a way that would make no sense to anyone.

And let me say SAM is the best photo partner, never complains, never gets tired. Perfect for me and my shoots. Right? SAM. Good ol SAM.

Oh that boho charm, 2 OOTD.

justfab romper and breckelles shoes
So it feels a lot like summer has hit, it is March still and already it feels like the middle of June. It was 90 degrees today in Orlando! WHAT?! How crazy, well I guess it is Florida and all.
Today’s outfit post is more of a what I wore what I wore. Since yesterday, I had to change right after I wore this. Ill tell you what happened after I pause my Mass Effect Andromeda AND tell you about this outfit.

OK, so this amazing blue bell sleeve romper is from Justfab, which I wore here and these awesome Breckelle’s gladiators as well as my NEW Rocksbox set. Kendra Scott brought out the new gold glass collection and I was lucky to get the set. YAY!

I love the sleeves of this romper and that it will be so flattering on so many different people. The golden necklace is perfect and the sandals are just so SUMMER!

kendra scott necklace

They have a zip up back and that is something I really love! I got these babies on Nordstrom about a year to 2 years ago and am so happy I did. But, I will be honest at first I did NOT know how to style them. WHAT?! no really I had not a clue. Wow. Blogger blunder right there.

Oh well, after a lot of Pinterest browsing. I figured it out. And here we are.

justfab boho romper
SO, what was I talking about earlier?? Well, let me just say that yesterday was a series of unfortunate events. Just one after another. And the seriousness of them worse and worse. Of which I am not entirely sure I can actually talk about. Since I didn’t exactly witness the crash just the aftermath and let me say, I had no idea people could bleed like that. Just things that would haunt you and that is all I am going to say because I was able to finally eat. SO, back to the more light hearted bit, after shooting this outfit, I got home and before going in the house I took my shoes off, which I have been doing a lot lately as my cats like to sit by the garage door waiting on me. And I have stepped on them. So, I took these off. Walked in the door. and WHOOP I slipped on cat mess(pee yuck) and fell in my cute ass romper on my ass. YES. how fun, luckily my head hit my handbag. I have travertine tiles…so,that would have been bad.

The cat mess, soaked my romper and so I had to take a quick shower because GROSS and then get the romper in the wash ASAP. So I changed into this….

Target top mango pants ALDO shoes

I love these ALDO shoes so much and these MANGO pants. Just the most comfy things ever and after that slip I needed it. OH and Aunt Irma visited so there was that too, hello cramps! (aunt Irma is from IT Crowd,go NETFLIX it now! OH my god hilarious show is hilarious!

Here is a clip so you know what I am talking about now GO WATCH THE SERIES!

all black OOTD

I mean both were great outfits. But this was supposed to be on the blog today as today’s outfit of the day and yesterday’s outfit of the day never made it so it is now on it today! OH it is What I wore Wednesday!

Anways, that is why nothing got done on the blog yesterday. The tutorial was pre scheduled and it made me realize I really need to do that more often. You can see that post here and the original haul video here

Cat Eyes so Too faced

Too faced cat eyes

SO the other day I posted my Too Faced HAUL . And so I wanted to share the look I created with the palette.

I normally do not do things like this as I do not have the ring lights and blah.

So, start with a great primer for shadow. I like the Milani eye shadow primer in Nude.

Makeup tutorialI apply this all over the lid. It is amazing!

We are doing the second row shadows. The first color is Meow. I applied that all over my eye, brow and lid.

I make the most hilarious faces( i am sorry) Not so glamorous.

Then I used Pussy Cat which is a pretty pale lavender color with lots of shimmer.

SO much purple

Then lastly the Jungle love which I put in the crease and corner in the eye. I make a c shape in the corner to bring the focus in.

You can really see the difference in how it tops off the eye look.

I normally do eyeliner and stuff last because I do use a setting powder.

The blush is pacifica

And highlight the tops of the cheekies.

My fave eye liner pen. RODIAL! UGH this thing is amazing!

I use a purple eye liner ALL the time under my eye, it makes the blue in my eyes pop more. And sometimes the green.

I don’t do a heavy eyebrow because I will end up with brows like Thranduil with the blonde hair and all.

THen after a lash primer I use this mascara! I love Too Faced Better than Sex mascara

And that is it friends

Life lately. Art fest and wine tastings.

Winter park FL ARt fext

SO about a weekend ago we went on a train ride to Winter Park for the art fest they were having. Lots of local artists and food. It was a fun event to go for free. It is always a great idea to keep an eye out for things like that here. I was trying to take pictures of things while having the hubby and the wee lad with me. Hubby was telling me to take lots of pictures for the blog, and there really was no space, too many people and when you stand still to take a photo, the people are bumping into you. So I didn’t get a lot. Bummer.

I managed a selfie and pictures of my fam.

These two, rode the train and were ready to go and here I am taking pictures of them.

 

This watch, I love mine so much I bought my hubby a matching one for his birthday!

We walked around looking for coffee for the first 15mins, as I was up all night before with the little who DOESNT want to sleep in his bed.

For the day, I wore a lace up body suit and flares with my flats by JUSTFAB.

Nothing spectacular. I wish I had gotten more pictures of the event. But I just didn’t get a real chance to, and when you have a child with ASD, they tend to not want to just be still for that. With the noise and all the stimuli it was over whelming. So we didn’t stay long. And that is OK. The little enjoyed the train and that was the best part. The Train.

AND for the record I HATE UMBRELLA STROLLERS!

HATE!

HATE I SAY!

ANd then fast forward to this weekend and we(mom and I) went to a wine tasting at World Market.

 

I got some really good wines! You can not leave me alone in a store when I have been drinking. Shit like this happens.  😉

Hope you all had a marvelous weekend!

The Too Faced Haul.

Too Faced haul

Hey there friends I finally got my Too Faced order in! And I was so excited to share it! SO here is another unboxing video of my Too faced haul!!!! I hope you enjoy! A full post of a look I created with the products will be up on the blog this week! YAY!

 

You can see my original wish list in this post here I love Too Faced and let me tell you this was worth the irritating wait! The compact foundation was worth it alone.

Too Faced Cocoa compact makeup

As I said in the youtube video, I needed to switch from my Lancôme Dual Finish to something else, as Lancôme was not offering the no fragrance powder. Dual finish was a powder I used for YEARS and then I couldn’t anymore. My skin would get irritated and itchy. So I did some research and found this one by Too Faced may be good. And so far it is! I know immediately is a powder will work or not, or a foundation will. Having sensitive skin is a huge problem that way. And So, I took a gamble and bought this without matching. And it worked out(thank GAWD) I am happy with my long anticipated order!
