Why did I cut my hair? Whyyyyyyyyyy? Oh yeah I had a mullet and I have real friends who let me know that my mullet game was not cute! So basically in order to preserve my sexy, I had to get rid of my little ponytail game and get a short bob. Every few weeks I've also been cutting my ends in hopes that the crown of my hair will catch up to the rest of it. I'm hecka frustrated now so I've started to get more serious about my hair regimen.
Because I've seen a lot of pictures and testimonials about the Mane Choice hair products, I purchased the vitamins, the straightening system and the deep conditioning treatment. I'm currently on my second bottle of vitamins and I have noticed that my hair seems thicker so I'm hoping that if I stay on task and stick to my regimen, I can see some results asap. I'll keep you guys updated! Let's hope that I can get this hair grown out!

Life! This combo right here will give it to you. I have a ton of different foundation shades, as I'm sure all makeup addicts do, but I always come back to my Nars. Recently I've added the Clinique Stay Matte Powder to my mix and it has been absolutely amazing. This is the only combo where I get complimented all the time and it looks like fresh, dewy, glowy skin. I typically mix the shades New Guinea and Benares with my MAC lustre drops and then I set it very lightly with my Clinique Stay Matte powder.
Here is an unfiltered picture of me wearing the combo and it looks like skin and photographs beautifully. Love.

There is no excuse for me being a lazy a** blogger so I'm working on not being one anymore. Like for real I've hella missed blogging and talking makeup with you'll4! During the past several months I've been completely zoned out and focused on other aspects of my life and I'm trying daily to find a balance between doing what I love and hanging out with the people I love. In order for that to happen though, I have to be myself and to have fun with this blogging thing. So now I'm going to tell you guys the truth about my absence and again, this is not an excuse, it just is what it is.
Top 5 reasons I've been MIA!
1. It was hella aggravating moving. Like a complete miserable experience except for the fact that I got to come back to America.
2. My hair fell out and now I'm insecure about taking makeup pictures unless my hair is straight and I'm trying not to straighten my hair that often in hopes that this ish will grow!
3. I'm trying to get to know Jesus in real life everyday so my husband and I are re-reading the Bible.
4. My kids are hilarious and sometimes I just like rolling around on the floor with them.
5. I'm trying to actually decorate this new house instead of just chillin' like I've done in the other houses!
With that being said, now I need some inspiration and feedback! What do you guys want to see from me? Let me know in the comments section and yes, I will reply! Also, since I've been gone from the blogging community for a while, if you have a blog or tumblr, leave it in the comments so I can check those out too.
And I'm out!

Just wanted to do a quick Instagram Look of the Day post. I decided to do two pictures so that you guys can see what the unedited/unfiltered picture looks like versus the filtered version. The picture on the left is unfiltered and the picture on the right has a Valencia filter. Do you guys mind when makeup artist or makeup enthusiast filter or edit their pictures? I personally only mind altered pictures when they are super photoshopped and blurry to the point where you can't even really see the makeup and it looks so unrealistic.
Lipstick - Nars Dragon Girl with MACs RiriWoo
