Sunset in Sumatra, a Sultry Red Rose Valentine’s Day Look

This was such a fun makeup look to come up with, and is perfect for Valentine’s Day! I love the pop of color, that is still neutral enough to not be too much. Paired with a nice lip color and you can take this look from day to night with ease. First you want to […]

Peacock Inspired Eyeshadow Look

This peacock eyeshadow look uses the Jaclyn Hill palette, which I’m currently obsessed with. The colors are absolutely gorgeous, they blend so well, and are crazy vibrant. If you don’t own this palette you really should purchase it – I can pretty much guarantee you won’t regret it. First you’ll want to grab your Urban […]

Glitter Eye Look

Glitter eyes are so, so fun and gorgeous, and are surprisingly easy! Looks that I can do while wearing a baby are must haves for me, with 3 kids under 1.5 years old I’m almost always wearing or holding one as I get ready. And, once you go glitter you’ll have an obsession and not […]

Our Kind of Beauty - Our Kind of Wonderful

Our Kind of Beauty and Chaos

I ended up joining Maskcara as an artist back in August, a few days after our second meeting with T’s birth mom. I was convinced she wasn’t going to pick us, so I made a rash decision and joined a MLM, haha. It was semi-rash, I’d actually been debating it for months, but hadn’t decided […]

S'more and Star Gazing Date Night - Our Kind of Wonderful

S’mores and Star Gazing Date Night

S’mores are the way to my heart. I LOVE s’mores, and we’ll make them over candles all year round. When this date box came I was giddy with excitement, and kept asking to do it. Well, we finally did! I got all of these candles, and we lit them roasted marshmallows, cuddles up (almost lighting […]

Movie Night & Cuddles with A - Our Kind of Wonderful

Movie Nights & Cuddles with A

We try not to do a lot of TV with A, other than some Baby Signing Time watching to help her, and us, learn, and to give us a chance to sweep and fold laundry , haha. But, she’s now to the point that she can last for oh, 15-30 minutes when we do family […]

Adoption is Hard

Adoption is the hardest thing I’ve ever done, and I’ve been through a lot in my life. When I tell people that, they just smile. When I searched for information on what to prepare for as we tried to adopt I never could find much information from the adoptive parents perspective on how difficult it is. […]
