Make Up Organization

Image
I'm excited to post my new make up organization today! I have been applying my make up at the bathroom sink and it is just not ideal. So I picked up this ridiculously inexpensive desk at Ikea and I have loved it! I've also had my eye on this chair and cart from Ikea to help create my new make-up space.



I've also been using a basic vanity mirror with a magnified side and a regular side. I'd love to upgrade to a lighted mirror at some point. 

On top of my vanity I keep my perfumes, a calendar and my favorite picture of my Dad and I. There is a small shelf below the tabletop where I keep special jewelry that I don't usually wear and a bowl with twistybands and hair ties (this shelf was hard to get a good shot of, so you'll just have to trust me). 


This top shelf of my cart organizer is where I keep all my go-to products and brushes (and also my ipod for a bit of entertainment whilst puttin' on my face). I use a make-up organizer and keep a bag there to put pr…

High Five for Friday!

1. A clean house. A clean home is ALWAYS the highlight of my week!

2. Ended my trip home with a great visit to the Newport Aquarium! Pictured are my two beautiful sisters!

3. Love that I get to cook again. I'm so grateful to be able to stay at home, so proud of my hard-working husband. This was the tilapia that I made for dinner on Monday night!

4. This Daniel study is getting pretty intense. Had to catch up this week and I feel like I'm taking a Bible history course, but I love it!

5. This poor guy hasn't been feeling well this week, which is really sad but he's been extra cuddly!

Mother + Daughter Photoshoot

Image
I absolutely LOVED visiting my family last week! The trip was long overdue, and even though I was there for nine days it only felt like two or three...

So while I was home I wanted to do something special for my Mom, her birthday is next week and obviously Mother's Day is right around the corner. She's a difficult person to buy presents for because if you ask her what she wants, she usually says "peace and quiet" (which is, of course, MUCH to difficult to gift wrap).

We don't have very many pictures together, which is mostly because my Mom despises having her picture taken (although I seem to be a little too camera ready), but I thought it would be sweet if we just made a day of it so she would become excited about the photoshoot :)

I took her to Bare Minerals to have her make up done, and then we proceeded to purchase almost every product they used on her! I'm telling you, Bare Minerals is the BOMB. Some of her favorites were the Prime Time Neutralizing Foun…

Linking up with The Vintage Apple today for OHP!  P.S. This is the most random hodge-podge of pins for this week! And can you tell I've made the shift to homemaker? So many food pins!

High Five for Friday!

1. Momma's home cooking. It is SO GOOD to come home. My Mom is hands down the best cook in the world.

2. We went to see the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit at the Cincinnati Museum this week! It was so interesting to see such ancient artifacts! My favorite scrolls were the Psalms and the Song of Moses, it was awesome to see the Scriptures in that format!

3. Seeing this little guy :) My family's yorkie, named Rudi. He really is the most cat-like dog you'll ever meet, but I love him to death and love that he let me cuddle with him for a little bit this week.

4. My whole family (minus my husband) was together this week for Easter! It was so good to just be together!

5. Thursday was "Spoil-Mom-Rotten Day", which was probably my favorite day! This is a picture of Mom getting her make up done at BareMinerals (shocker!) and we purchased some of the products they used! (I may or may not have picked up a KILLER pink lip gloss for myself...stay tuned). We then proceeded to shop …

Linking up with The Vintage Apple today for Oh How Pinteresting! Apparently my mind has not completely shifted to spring-time yet, I'm still pinning sweaters and black on black! Oops!
