Blondes have more Fun or Brunettes?

I’ve waited a while to make this post! I’ve wanted to change my hair color for soooo long now. Last year I had “Enchanted forest” (from Manic Panic) green and once that cleared up I was ready for MORE! It’s been a goal of mine to go blonde. Perhaps to annoy the Hubs since he’s said he doesn’t like blonde or maybe just to figure out who has more fun; Blondes or Brunettes???

My natural color is this ashy brown. So for me the transition was easy.

We started off with one bleach session and toned it a cool grey with Wella toner. It actually looked ashy like my natural color. IMG_0189-2

Then we did a second round of bleach. That 2nd time we didn’t tone it and left it the bright golden-yellow color. Which btw I totally rocked!

Lastly, we did one last round of bleach and toned it again with Wella’s blue and violet toner to eliminate the orange and yellow from my hair. I love the results and maybe once we retouch my roots I’ll bleach and tone one more time. My hair has done so good with the whole process! I’m hoping using a “purple” shampoo will help eiliminate the need to tone it often. But I do see myself with some pastel colors in the future so we’ll see!

Life Update: Deployment, Moving, & no more puppy!

Untitled-5.jpg

As the title says some changes have happened in our lives. I can’t tell you which one has been the hardest on us. In the next few weeks the husband will be leaving us to go over seas for a 6 month deployment. This will be the 3rd deployment we experience as a couple. This one is especially hard on me because now we have two kids. The first one we were just engaged. The second I was pregnant and gave birth to our daughter while he was gone. And this one he’s leaving behind two kids and will be missing our daughters first day of school, her birthday, and the babies first Halloween (this is important to me, LOL).

Because of the deployment I decided to stay with my family up in Chicago. This is such a change from the weather to giving up our own space. We will stay with my parents. I’m very excited to be around family and to have some extra hands to help. I however do feel bad the hubs will have to pack up the whole house on his own, again!

And last but not least Chase the black Pomeranian went to his forever home. He was a gift for my mother and we weren’t sure if she was going to like him. Luckily she did and he gets along with her French papillon. She’s a much older dog and even so they got along perfectly fine!

On to some happy news: my picture from my March Ipsy glam bag was featured on the Beau Gachis Instagram! So exciting!

Any other military spouses out there? Any advice? Any advice on how to deal and help the kids adjust to the change??

Until next time. . .

Get to know me tag + Photos

I’ve decided its been much-needed to do a post like this. I sometimes feel like my blog is a bit . . . detached from me. Also, I’ve ben thinking of making it more uniform. Stick to a color scheme. Anyone else feel like this? Maybe its like spring cleaning, lol, but cleaning up my blog. Instead of doing a simple 30 questions tag I went ahead and added some options from a “March Photo challenge”. Lets get started!!

  1. Current relationship: I am happily married since 2011. He’s the love of my life and my forever!
  2. Where would you like to be in 10 years? My husband is active duty military so this question is a bit out of my hands. He is making a career out of it so I don’t know where we will be in a year lol. But hopefully in 10 years we own a house, some land, have more puppies, and more kids!
  3. Top 5 pet peeves: hmm, I hate when something needs to get done and people don’t listen to instructions. I hate asking for help or making myself vulnerable and it be for nothing. I hate how inconsistent I am about dealing with what I want, goals. I seriously dislike repeating myself. I don’t like when people move MY seat in the car/truck. LOL
  4. Animal/pet (photo): Here we have Chase and Marie. Chase is a gift for my mom but he’s staying with us for a bit. He’s an 8 week old Pomeranian. Marie is our dog and she’s a 2Yr old bull-terrier.

     

  5. Fave comfort foods and why: This is tough one for me. I love food. Hahaha But for comfort my moms cooking takes the price! Tamales, pozole, star soup. LOL! I also love southern comfort food. Green beans, chicken, Mac and cheese. MMM!!

Affordable at home Manicure

I’ve never done a post like this but this set up is too good not share! Since having the baby I haven’t had the time or heart to go to a nail salon and get a decent manicure. These products are what works best for me. I went through a lot of polishes to get this perfect set up *insert evil laugh!*

dsc_0182

I start off by softening and removing my cuticle with the Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover. It’s so easy to use: apply the product for 15 seconds (no longer than a minute), push it up with the cuticle stick, and voila clean cuticle free nails. Then I cut my nails to the desired size. For me it’s short because of the little tike. DSC_0193.png

This next step I need because I have ridges on my nails so I smooth them out a bit just to get rid of them.

After that I wash my hands to get rid of any dust and moisturize with this Soap And Glory The Righteous Butter. It smells so good and its so thick and buttery it provides a lot of moisture.

For myself gel nail polishes are my favorite! Both these polishes are affordable. The Sinful Colors retails for $1.98 at Walmart STEAL! The L.A. Colors I also got at Walmart for the same price. Now both these polishes have a top coat that promotes a longer longevity of the polish but. . .dsc_0192

These two are my go to top coats. For a salon finish I recommend the Essie Gel Setter. It’s a bit pricey but so worth it. It gives that thick wet look without having to cure it like regular salon gel polishes. The O.P.I top coat is very basic and doesn’t last as long as the essie but definitely lasts longer than any other top coat.

Now I know nothing beats the feeling of getting pampered and having a hand massage, lol, but this is a quick at home diy manicure. I love it and can vouch my nails look pretty for 2-3 weeks. I bet if I wasn’t a germaphobe with the baby and didn’t have to wash bottles every night it would last even longer.

What are some of your favorite polishes or some diy home pampering??

Life Update!

Hello everyone! After almost a year of being absent I am back with some life updates. If anyone noticed I was gone for a while I promise I have a good excuse! Back in April we found out I was pregnant. I had noticed a change in my mood and how tired I was. I had 0 motivation to blog or even do my makeup. So, I decided to put blogging aside while we got ready for the baby. Another thing is I wasn’t buying makeup (besides my basics/favorites) since we were focusing on just the baby and our 4yr old. I didn’t stop wearing makeup I just stopped talking about it. Here are a few of my favorite pics of my pregnancy! I didn’t do a maternity shoot which I kind of regret now but my bathroom mirror saw many selfies!

Another big thing that happened that took up a lot of our/my time was back in November our dog Marie had puppies. For some reason she rejected them and I stepped in with bottle feeding and all that good stuff.  2 of the pups didn’t make it and with the hormones and time invested in them I didnt have energy at all to do makeup. I spent a lot of that time just focused on the pups and my daughter.

img_5157

But after finding most of them loving homes and giving birth to a beautiful baby boy I AM BACK!! My son was born in January and since then I’ve made some makeup damage so I can’t wait to show you guys and talk once again about the one thing we all have in common. . . our love for makeup! I’ve also played with the idea of not focusing so much on just makeup and possibly changing my style to more of a lifestyle blog with makeup posts also, thoughts??

I am so glad to be back, glad to have a healthy baby boy and daughter, and glad to be doing what I love once again!
