TTT (Thursday Treasure or Trash) - L'Oreal Lip Gloss

Hey Everyone!

 Here is a NEW Thursday Treasure or Trash (TTT) for you! I'm really enjoying these new lip products from L'Oreal, their name is so long and confusing thats one thing I don't like. I love that for the most part I can throw any of these into my purse and go. They give a very nice hydrating, glossy, full pigmented lip colour.

 Here are all the colours I own, the shade range on this line is amazing and there truly is something for everyone!

I really love the sleek gold packaging, it reminds me of YSL or something very expensive. The only downside is it shows finger tips like you wouldn't believe!

Here you have all the "arm" swatches (thanks Logan (My Son) for letting me use your arm. The family that blogs together, stays together.

As you can see most of these colours have some real pigment in them and they are all super glossy. I'm a fan!

Clinique Cheek POP Blushes!

Hey Everyone,

  So I got these blushes back in February and I have been using them fairly regularly from then until now and I'm still loving them! These are a very smooth and creamy formula and then glide on and blend on like butter, plus I LOVE their packing it's beyond cute!

Their are four colours in total but I only picked up two of them. The first colour I got was 03 Berry Pop and I knew I wanted this one right away. It's a beautiful medium toned pink colour and it gives your cheeks that perfect flush.

Hand Swatch look at the pigment on this blush!

The other colour I picked up was 02 Peach Pop and like Berry Pop this is also a very bright tone. This one is more of a peachy coral and have a beautiful sparkle to it.


Hand swatch you can see just how pretty this coral colour is!

I've been telling myself for weeks to go out and grab the other two colours and just haven't gotten around to doing it yet but I still plan to. I think these are defiantly worth the slightly higher price tag at $24.00 Canadian each.

Thanks for reading!

Where have I been!

Well HELLO there!

It really has been forever but I'll be completely honest with you now that my laptop has officially gone to electronic heaven blogging isn't so easy anymore. I used to spend most of my nights in bed and blogging but now I have only 1 computer and when I'm sitting in a chair I don't feel inspired to write. However I do promise to work on this, even if that means getting a new laptop (don't twist my rubber arm!).

I'll give you a quick update of what 2014 has looked like for me so far. We moved houses again at the end of 2013, which was both a pain and a blessing. My mother and father moved into the basement of our current home and that has given us lots of family time. The best thing ever to happen for my kids!

This is Grandpa, Logan and Paxton goofing around when we went to play mini golf!

This is Grandma with all her grandsons and the puppies!

A big milestone was Paxton getting his first big boy haircut, man that was a hard one. Any other moms feel that way when they took their little boy for their first cut? It was so hard to watch his beautiful curls fall to the ground and to watch him change from a baby faced little boy into a small man!

The before:

The after:

Last little update for tonight the boys are still closer then ever, I keep waiting for the moment when they want nothing to do with each other (they are 8 years apart after all) but it doesn't seem to be coming. Paxton is Logan's shadow and wants to do everything with his big brother and Logan just seems perfectly happy to allow him to do so. Warms my heart to see how much they love each other!

This month has been full of friends, family and fun, we truly couldn't be more blessed at this moment and when I look back on the end of 2013 I find it so hard to believe the place I was at and how unhappy things were. Goes to show me everything really does happen for a reason!
