    No More Excuses..

    I haven't been in a blogging mood for the past couple *?* of weeks..

    Last week, we (the bf and i) received the news that he is being deployed for 14 months, we just don't know where yet..So these past few days were just emotional and super stressful..So sorry for the major lack of posts..

    On a lighter note, i haven't completely neglected my blog and you, my blogging sisters..So here are a few looks i've done these past few days, at least the ones i remember taking pictures of..

    Two To Glow
    Watch me eat my words in my previous post as i said that i wasn't going to get any..MAC totally won on this one! I love the MES that just came out, they totally kicked the older ones' butt..these were nothing like the past ones, i wasn't expecting to get any, but when i swatched them at the store, i fell in love and went home with 3..i know, just three, i've majorly cut down my make-up expenses..but anyhoo, i love these babies because both sides are very soft and pigmented. I use the marbled side when i want a subtle color and the solid side when i want it BOLD.

    I used both sides in this look, just didn't pack on the orange (solid side) a lot. Nonetheless, i like how this came out..:)

    Sorry no full face shots..these were taken at the end of the day, about 10 hours after application so the face was just an oil spill..lol..

    Gorgeous looks sis! Awww I am so sorry to hear that the BF is being deployed, you both are in my prayers and I will be praying for his safe return, and that God watches over him. :)

    I'm new to reading your blog (love it though, found it from a another blog I
    read!)... great pictures, you do some awesome makeup :)

    I'm also sorry to hear about your boyfriend... I've been in your shoes before so I know what you're going through. My best advice is to stay as positive as you can... for both your spirits and his. Hopefully he'll have internet access (mine could talk almost nightly since he was doing computer stuff) and send him care packages a lot... I know that stuff means the world to him. It will all be worth it though once he's home... the saying "Absence makes the heart grow fonder" really is true :) If you need to talk or anything, let me know. I've been there before! :(
