Prussian Blue FOTD

Hey y'all!

Like I was saying in the last post, I have been on a blue liner roll. I think blue brings out brown eyes nicely. Here's an FOTD I did a few days back.

FACE
MAC Strobe Cream Lotion
Prescriptives Camouflage Cream Concealer
MAC Medium Dark Mineral Powder
MAC Accenuate/ Sculpt (to contour)
NARS Orgasm Blush (on apples of cheeks)
MAC Belightful Iridescent Powder (to highlight)

EYES
UDPP
MAC Prussian Powerpoint Pencil (liner)
MAC Prussian Matte2 Shadow (smudged into liner to lessen harsh lines)
MAC Moonflower e/s (inner lower lashline to brighten eyes)
MAC Engraved Powerpoint Pencil (tightline upper lashes)
Shiseido Mascara Base
Shiseido Lasting Lift Mascara


LIPS
MAC Moonbathe Lipglass

















I went a little snap happy.... hey it's been a while since I did an FOTD!! lol...

Anyways, I am trying to figure out the next tut that I'm going to do. If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know!

Until next time...

XOXO,
Stephie

Valentine's Day, A Few Nights Out, Mikie's Birthday

Howdy howdy :)

I have been pretty busy from January to March. I was doing my accounting internship with one of the Big 4. We worked 12 - 15 hour days, sometimes even weekends. It was a crazy time, but very good experience. In the end, I got a job offer and obviously accepted it... I don't know who would turn down a job especially in this economic climate. I start with this firm after I graduate which should be December 2010 with my Masters in Accounting. I'm going to start working for a golf course next week while I am still in college.

Anywhoodles, I have a lot to catch y'all up on. On the makeup front, I'll be having a sale very soon. I don't use a lot of it, so I would rather sell the makeup instead of it just sitting around being untouched. I just need to take pictures which should be up sometime next week. Ok, on with the pictures.

Valentine's Day 2009

For Valentine's Day, I brought Mike to the Cowboys Golf Course. He has a passion for golf and the Cowboys course is one of the best in the DFW area.






Then Mike brought me to the Reunion Tower's newest restaurant, Five-Sixty, which is owned by Wolfgang Puck. For those non-Texans, if you have ever seen the Dallas skyline, Reunion Tower is the tall building with a sphere on top. It was really nice, and it revolves! I didn't take pics of the food... however I had the lobster and this weird curry sauce. Not my fave... I would have expected more. I did see some sushi so maybe I'll try that next time I go.





Then he took me on a horse drawn carriage through Downtown Dallas. It was super romantic... I'm a lucky girl :)



Spring Break

I finished my internship right before spring break. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to go to a place like Padre, but I made the most of it. We went out to Uptown (as usual lol) and had a few house parties.

Prepartying before going out to a sports bar in Uptown. Yeah I was playing drums with a spoon lol...



With my girls, Erin and Ashley.






Mike and I at our friend's, Amanda's, party.





Perry's Benefit

My friend Perry recently got diagnosed with cancer. He bartends at a sports bar, so they had a benefit for him to raise money for his chemotherapy.

Of course I make Mike and me match. I bought the dress from Forever 21 and the belt from H&M.

I wanted to keep my makeup simple and fresh. I used some gold eyeshadow to accent my eyes, and of course liner and falsies.











Mike's 26th Birthday Week

Of course in Texas it's a tradition to take pictures with the bluebonnets when they bloom.



Mike's best friend got us tickets to a suite at Nokia Theatre to watch Denis Leary's comedy tour. Leary is quite vulgar, but some of his jokes did appeal to my naughty side lol



The day of Mike's birthday party was the grand opening to my church.





I threw Mike a party at the house. Juicy and I.





His cake with sparklers..





Instead of using black shadow and liner, I used dark blue. I find that blue brings out brown eyes.





I tried to distract Mike....



So I could put cake in his face :)



Then he got me back...



And cheated! He used Adam to hold onto me... LAME :P



This is why we are meant to be <3



I'll update with pics and details of the makeup sale soon. Talk to y'all soon :)

Say Hello to Juicy!

Howdy y'all!

Say hello to the newest addition to my little family, my baby, Juicy (not a mystery why I named her that lol...). She's a pugweenie (half pug and half dachshund). Mike and I had been looking for a puppy for about a month. At first we wanted to buy a yorkie from a breeder, but I've always wanted to adopt a puppy from the shelter. She is my first puppy, I've always had cats. She is absolutely adorable :)

Juicy is about 4 1/2 months old. Super cute :) I wanted to share some pics with y'all.





















I'm making a separate entry for some recent pics of Mike and me. Talk to y'all soon :)
