Must Have Sephora Items

I have had one of those crazy days that makes a mama want to come home and forget everything. The part I'm going to tell you about is the Happy Ending, because those are the best anyway. The yucky crappy day will be behind me.
Guess who came to my door earlier? The Fed Ex man, that's who!!! He brought me my Sephora items and I raced to the bathroom to try them out. I DID NOT wear mascara today, because I had a feeling my new mascara was coming today...so, I was prepared for greatness.
Pic on left....no mascara on left eye and let me preface this by saying that my right eye is a little smaller and lazier and doesn't it look better than my left one? Well, I think so.

Pic. #2 mascara on both eyes.

Pic. #3 just another pic. to show you how awkward I felt taking pics. of myself in the mirror.

Pic.#4 from left to right...Tarte "Lights Camera Lashes" 4 in 1 mascara. Tarte eye shadow duo in rose gold. Lancome Cils Booster XL is a base for mascara.
The Cils makes your lashes long and lustrous, FOR REAL y'all I'm not exaggerating one bit. They look like movie star lashes. The pics. do NOT give any of these products justice.

The last picture that has nothing to do with makeup: My lovely silver moccasins that my sis gave me for Christmas, love her and the shoes.
So, let me get to my point. After hmmmm, about a month of nothing seeming to go my way, lots of possible break downs, horrible nightmares about car wrecks and insurance and then my crazy affairs today...............let's just say, my makeup coming today made me smile! It's the little things ya know. {my life is wonderful, it's just been a domino effect lately with mishaps}
Love you guys!

New Make Up Day is fun for everyone. I love putting on make up and getting glossy and flossy. It makes me feel so shiney.

I really feel like dookie today, I'm pretty sure I'm about to die. My throat is sore and my girls are relentless. Thank GOD for Daddy. Let me say it again. Thank GOD for Daddy.

The shoes make me want to slap my face they are so cute. I love them, I love you, you always look beautiful.

How is the kitteh at your house? Tell Sam I said Hi.

Love the new mascara, Sexy! I don't wear it too often (it's way too much trouble for me to take off at night...I'm kinda lazy) but it looks GREAT on you!!

Hmmm..crazy affairs? This statement could go both ways, sister!! LOL!

Hope tomorrow is much better for you!

WV: thingi

(I'm sooo cravin' some chocolate today!!)

Oh, you know I love Sephora!

Just placed an order- the new Too Face Smurfette lip gloss, the Stila Pomegranate stain, and I tossed in an OPI nail polish for good measure. I LOVE SEPHORA!

Oh, I'm so glad something came along to 'make your day'!

I wish I was a make-up girl...but the shoes would do it for me! ;) I love new shoes or clothes! I just rarely wear much makeup.
