Cleaning up my hard drive and I saw this video. This was approx. 13-14 months ago. For weeks he will move/skate, fall, stand up & repeat. Even when it feels like he’ll never catch up, he never gives up. It seems such a long time ago. We used to watch the Heat players during clinics and he would wonder when will he be able to skate like them. During clinics yesterday, I was so busy being in awe that I didn’t remember to take videos. The difference between then and now is immense. This boy is hope, joy and terror in a bottle marked forever mom’s.

I came across these jumbo pencil balms a while back when I saw this display supporting breast cancer. So I thought, why not?

They come in a jumbo twist-up packaging. The product is twisted up which eliminates the need for a sharpener. Major pet peeve…having to sharpen soft/balm-y lip products.…

I am not a big fan of red lip color. Now when I was younger I remember that’s the only color I ever wore. Different shades of red. However now I prefer to play up my eyes and wear more muted colors on the lips.

On the tube it is a very bright fuchsia red. Scary, right? Well, not really. It is sheer after all so it…

I love purple but I haven’t had much experience with it when it comes to makeup. I don’t have any purple clothes either but I do have shoes and purses in purple. So I thought I’d go easy on my first foray into that part of the color spectrum. I used Laura Mercier’s Caviar Stick in Orchid as my eye base and topped it with a shimmering sort of metallic-y medium brown and just blended out the edges…
