Know what I’m tired of talking about and thinking about? Pregnancy, miscarriage, ultrasounds, hCG, and basically just everything related to my reproductive system! lol Wow, enough, right? So, all I’m going to say today is that I’m now cramping (to be expected after the d&c) and bleeding (again, normal). I have my post-op appointment on Tuesday when I should know something about the pathology report (if it was molar or an incomplete miscarriage).
Okay, now for some thoughts and happenings NOT related to any of the topics mentioned above. :)
So, I’ve been spending some time on cosmetics lately. I’m really interested in learning how to better apply makeup, truly understand which products do what, and feel more attractive and confident. I used to think that women who looked amazing in makeup were just naturally beautiful, but it’s actually that they (or their makeup artist) are really skilled – it really is an art! That’s not to say that makeup-free can’t be beautiful, because it certainly is, it’s just that when I wear makeup, I want confidence. :D
I signed up for Ipsy this week and I’ll be getting the May GlamBag in the mail in a few weeks. I’m excited! Subscriptions are so fun. And this one is only $10 including shipping (no tax); it’s a bag and five beauty samples. I like that Ipsy provided a survey to get to know me when I signed up so that things will be tailored to me, as much as possible, in my GlamBag.
I bought e.l.f.’s contour pallet yesterday and thanks to amazon’s prime shipping, it will be here tomorrow! I have their blush pallet, which I love but only use one color from. I’m definitely looking forward to learning and beginning contouring. I have sort of chubby cheeks (or, at least a rounded face), so I can use some contouring! lol Do you contour?
Well, we have had to put an end to co-sleeping here. :( I’ve been sidecar co-sleeping with Elizabeth since December, but now she literally crawls away when she wakes up! She has fallen off the bed twice and that was two times too many! Poor thing. So, the mattress on her crib is now at its lowest setting and the side has been put back on. Her bed is still right next to mine, but you know, it’s different than lying next to your baby. I miss it, but we don’t have to worry about her falling, and of course that’s more important. And speaking of sleeping, she is back to LOVING tummy sleeping! I had only been allowing it for naps, but once she started crawling full-on, I felt it was safe for her to sleep that way all night because she can get in and out of all positions with ease. Man, she sleeps so much deeper and longer on her tummy! She went from waking every hour or two to every four or five. ^_^ Do your kids tummy sleep?
So, are you into cosmetics? What have you bought or tried recently? Who do you watch on YouTube for inspiration? Any beauty bag/box subscriptions? Please share!
