No school again today. Boy we've had a lot of days off. 2 week vacation then snow Friday and today. We'll the kids sure love a long weekend.
So trying to blog every day is extremely hard unless I blog about dumb stuff. I really can't come up with that much interesting things to talk about everyday, not to mention some days life just keeps you busy and I'm too tired. I'm going to have to find a schedule for me that will work out but keep me blogging a lot this year. First we have Makeup Monday.
I went to Sephora and got some new makeup for my birthday. I was thibking of getting the Too Faced Semi - Sweet Chocolate bar pallette, but seriously do I really need another eyeshadow pallette in my life?? No not really. So I got other things. I'm very happy with the goodies I did pick out.
First I got the Benefit How to Look The Best At Everything. This little box comes with the pore fessional, Hello Flawless oxygen wow, 2 boi-ing concealers, and Hello Flawless powder. Love love it all. I've used the powder before which has a cute name "I'm cute as a bunny" Honey. I also had it in the color Honey before and it was the perfect match for me. It's so soft and smooth and I almost like it better than my MAC studio Fix. The foundation is called "I'm so money" Honey. Cute names right. This foundation is so so so nice. It's been awhile since I've loved a foundation like I love this. It's very lightweight and a light to meduim coverage. The first time I put it on I thought maybe it wasn't going to cover enough. It's just that light. But once I applied it all I saw how well it actually did even out my skin tone and look flawless. Not full coverage flawless but like nice pretty real skin. Almost like you can't even tell I have Makeup on. I have dry skin and this is perfect for my dry skin. The concealer is nice too but I don't know if I'm sold on it just yet. It's a cream concealer but not as thick and full coverage as MAC. The 02 was more for under eyes and the 03 which is a bit darker was more of the same shade as the foundation. I just think maybe I need to give it a few more tries. The primer, Pore fessional is so silky smooth but not silicone kind of smooth it's just right. Seriously I need a full size bottle of this. Way better then the Maybelline pore easer I've been using.
The too Faced 5 Star Favorites comes with 3 eye goodies. The shadow insurance which is your eye primer and my all time favorite primer. The better than sex mascara, yes you heard that right. It's not better than sex but it's a good mascara. I've only tried it 2 times so not sure if I love it just yet, but it's a very good mascara. I'm not a fan of how big the brush is on my small eyes. I do love that it dries super fast. With hooded eyes I find that very wet mascara makes a mess on my lids and usually ruins looks for me. But this passed the test. The perfect eyes eyeliner is to die for!!! Yes yes yes I've been needing a good liner for some time now. I wanted the Urban Decay 24/7 but they were all sold our of the zero (which is black). So that's why I grabbed this. Great product it's super duper black and very smooth and glides on so nice. I'm in love with it and will repurchase this again. It's one of those liners that's very nice to blend out but yet it also dries nice and stays put. I feel asleep with it on and it was still there the next day.
Lastly there was my free birthday gift from Sephora. This month they had the skin care or Urban Decay lip crayons. The lippies looked nice but one was red and I rarely wear red so I opted for the skin care. It's Peter Thomas Roth anti - aging cleansing gel and a cucumber gel mask. I tried them only once so far. The cleanser made my skin feel really dry and tigh. Not a fan of that feeling. I use Cetaphil everyday for my dry skin. The eye mask was nice but not really sure I felt anything from it. I guess I can try it more and see what it does. So I'm not sure if I will continue to use the cleanser or not??
So those are by Sephora goodies. I just love Sephora so much. It's like a kid in a candy store. So hard to make a decision in that store.
Have a lovely day!

So for New Years we stayed home with the kids and had a lot of fun. We used our new popcorn maker that grandma gave us for Christmas. We goofed around and laughed a lot. Also watched the all the entertainers in NYC and the ball drop on TV.
I love NYE it gives hope to a new start for a fresh new year!!! Also a reminder that my birthday is next week and that I'm going to be old. HEHEE but also getting a pinch closer to Spring!!! Ughhh as I type and the snow is fall so fast outside. I do hope this year is a great one and less stressful then the past year.
I'm so excited for all the things we can do this year though. Winters are long here and seem to never end. Though we haven't had much of any snow this year. Again it's snowing right now as a speak and it's annoying me!!!! LOL Snow is very pretty and I love watching the kids have fun in it but I just hate the cold weather and that it's 4pm and already getting dark out. Well Spring will come right??? Then I get to garden and be outside with the kids playing in the yard with the dogs. We love opening our pole and spending the day outside with the kids. Summer is my favorite time of year. I just love hot long sunny days!!!! We play cards by the pool and cook on the grill and chase the dogs around the yard!! Oh and did I mention my garden! Heehee I just love to garden. I live in a cold state but Summer is my all time favorite. It's also when we get to go camping, which is always my favorite time with the Family. Fall is pretty too!!! That's my second favorite time. You never know if it will stay warm here or get cold quickly. The colors of Fall our my favorite all it's beautiful colors and smells. I'm Pumpkin obsessed!! Also I really love decorating for Fall time and Halloween is the funnest Holiday. Then Winter will come creep up on us pretty fast like every year. It gets very cold and the days are very short. We just like to drink coffee (maybe some wine) cuddle and watch a lot of netflix.
Well I am excited to see what 2015 has in store for the Family & I this year! Maybe I'll win the lottery and buy a log cabin and some boobs oh and all the makeup in the world. We can go on Vacation to Disney and take the kids to a really nice fun spot for our Summer vacation.!!!!! Oh who am I kidding!! Day dreaming is fun though. I'll be over here cutting my coupons and couponing the crap out of my drugstore beauty items. Working on my budget and meal planner. But also enjoying my crazy silly family and making lasting memories with them!! Even if it is just writing in the driveway with chalk and baking with the kids or cuddling with my Hubby and drinking some wine. But please 2015 I'd ask you nicely to make my kids a bit neater around the house!!! Also maybe the dogs can stop getting into the garbage and leaving big messes for Mama to clean up before coffee time!! Thanks
Hope everyone else had a great New Years Eve.
So for Christmas I made Hubby a lamp. I saw on Pintertest how you can cut glass bottles in half. Pretty cool right? Well It took me 3 tries and I almost lost an eye. Yup I'd say pretty dangerous. You have to also set it on fire so that really ups the danger. I just wanted to make something fun and unique. So I knew I wanted to make something with a Jack Daniel's bottle but wasn't sure till I was throwing out an old lamp of the girls. I noticed the cord was just tied onto this cheap lamp so I took it apart and knew I had to make a lamp. All the supplies were on hand that I found around the house, so I guess we can say it was a free project.
I have a youtube channel (LisaLuvsMac), I've been doing this on and off since 2009. It never really seemed to go anywhere I guess because I'm not very constant with keeping up on it and also networking. Anyways I started it cause I was a SAHM to 3 very young children and I needed a hobby for myself. Makeup was my big interest aside for being a Mommy & Wife so that's what I decided to do on youtube. Once in awhile I would post videos of the kids, but not as offend as I would have liked. Recently I was going through my video's and was said I didn't post more of the family on there. They look so cute and so young. I know I'm with them everyday and enjoy being with them and watching them grow and learn. Yet it's also so nice to be able to look back and see them afterwards. So my goal for this year is to blog everyday and to post more videos of the children. I don't care if nobody watches it's all for me and my family. To look back at our year and see all the fun things we've done as family and to see how the kids have grown through the year.
Blogging everyday for a year may just be a challenge for me but I'm ready to take that challenge and have fun with it. I love to write even though I'm not a very good writer and I'm really bad with words, but maybe this will help me grow as well. I'm a couple days behind my first couple blogs but that's ok I had to organize my thoughts first and here I go!!!!! Blogging.
This is not just for the kids either. I really want to keep sharing recipes because I love to cook and I'm good at it. Also I will post about other things as well, such as beauty, couponing, DIY, and home decor. Probably just some every day family life. The simple things we all do day to day, along with fun adventures.
Happy New Year and here's to a new start. A fresh new year to do new things and improve ourselves. SO I'm pretty excited to share my family with you and be able to reflect back on it later.
