New Hobby: Makeup
25 May, 2017 / 0 Comments

I have always been into playing with my makeup and I love Halloween because I can do crazy makeup designs, but lately it has turned into an actual hobby. I love playing around with my makeup.

I would just buy from Walmart or Superstore or Shoppers, places like that. Now I have discovered high-end and it’s […]

A Look at March 2017

Well peeps, I didn’t get much up on the blog in March. Why? Well, because hubby and I are getting our house ready to sell SO THAT WE CAN MOVE!! It’s proving to be a lot of work and very time-consuming. Add that to caring for an infant and there is hardly any down time! So, blogging unfortunately has to suffer. We’re hoping to have our house up this month, though, so hopefully I’ll get to blog more after that. But then there will be looking for a new house and the big move, so we’ll just have to see! Oh, […]
