LIFE NEWS

So exams have pretty much been taking up my time. However, Mike and I have been able to go out a few times and enjoy ourselves. I have some random pictures to share with y'all.

Batting Cages

One of my stress-relievers is working out or playing sports. Pretty much getting my body physically active. It really works wonders on my frame of mind. Mike and I went out for a night at the batting cages. Its a lot of fun, especially with someone who I enjoy spending time with.

As you can tell, I'm a REAL hardcore player...


The one thing I dislike about some batting cages, the fact that the balls get too close. Hella no way I wanna get hit by one.


Like my pink batting gloves? Of course.... why not :)


He looks so determined! Nice action shot!


Sweaty and happy :)


House Party

Mike and I reenacting the first time we met :)


The ruffle skirt is from Forever 21. It is the one I showed y'all in my Haul video.


Dallas Cowboys Preseason Game & Downtown Fort Worth

The makeup I wore for my fun night out was inspired by ahanhbarbie34's Big Round Eyes tutorial.


Our view of the game. Mike got really awesome passes. We pretty much were able to go wherever we wanted throughout the new stadium.... pretty sweet :)




The infamous big screen at Jerry's World. Ridonkulous. Even from our fantastic view, I couldn't help but stare at the screen. It just grabs your attention!


Enjoying my yummy (and ridiculously overpriced) Cowboyrita.


My outfit for the night. At the Cowboys game, I work gladiator sandals then changed into heels for the night out. My top is a bodysuit for American Apparel and the skirt is from Forever 21.

We then made it out to 8.0s, a bar in downtown Fort Worth. This was my first time out in FW. I'm a Dallas girl, but I do love the old-time feel of Fort Worth. The atmosphere is a lot chiller than Dallas. Definitely was feeling it :)

This is an awesome 80s coverband called the Spazmatics. They are amazing in their performance and very entertaining! LOVE their outfits too hehe


Me and my girls at a jazz bar. Sipping on some reisling... yummers!


Babe and me at the jazz bar. See, I'm wearing heels in this picture so I'm not as short as the others LOL


Amanda and I kidding around.


Fun night with my girls! (+ my love hehe)


My bra was green with zebra straps. The back of the bodysuit is really low, so either way, people were gonna see my bra. Might as well be funky ;)




Outside the jazz bar we went to, it was a lot of fun! And I know my swingpack didn't go with my outfit... hey I had to be comfortable at the Cowboys game, so I chose comfort over style in that instance :)


In other news, Mike and I are planning on renting our own townhome by the end of the year. We live with roommates right now, so we want to have our own space. That is partly the reason I haven't been making as many videos as I would like. We are cramped and it's hard for me to find the right spot in our room to do the video, blah blah. So Mike and I need to move out so I can make videos!!!! LOL

Well, I will get back to y'all soon. I am gonna try to record a new video soon. Until then....

XO
Stephie

You look lovely as always! I like your interpretation of the Big Round Eyes - and the hair looks so classy. (How do you do THAT? Seriously, I never know what to do with my hair.)

But you know what I enjoy most about your pictures?

... cleavage!

Elyse said...

Hi! You are gorgeous, I love your makeup tutorials :)

I wanted to ask a quick question, I see that you used technakol eyeliner, is it any good? does it smudge easily?

I'm badly in need of a good eyeliner. Mine always migrates to the corner of my eye! I would use liquidlast since everyone says it doesn't budge, but Im rubbish at applying liquid :(
