Today's Tidbit: there is no "i can't"

I learn so much from my husband on a daily basis. Whether its through talking to him, watching him or learning from him... he always has these awesome nuggets of wisdom that flow from who he is. 
With that said, he teaches karate and tells the kids that there is no "i can't" in karate. I wish there was that rule in real life! So here is a quick tidbit for today. I hope you all know and be bold in saying I CAN! because you can.... I believe :)

Easy Upper Smokey Eye for the busy lady!

heyyyyyyyy sexy lady.. womp womp womp womp womp womp..
so I am so behind on my blog because we went on a beautiful family vacation!! 
Anyways, a beautiful friend on YouTube asked me to be a part of a collaboration makeup tutorial with other mommies to show how we get ready quick and easy... Here is my version of the 'upper smokey eye'
hope it helps you in getting ready quick when you don't want or have the time to dilly dally in your makeup routine!

New Colored Lenses

I got some new contact lenses recently from !
These are the Geo Color Nine Series in Grey $19.50
I love that you can get each eye different prescription because a lot of places won't let you or you have to buy two complete sets for each prescription!

at first I was concerned because in the past wearing contacts where the color went to the center made me see a haze when I wore them making me feel nauseous and headachy.but these ones do not do that at all. I don't see a haze even when I look side to side. score!

I really like the look of these... I feel ice princess-y. perfect for winter!

these are the ones I usually wear. they are the  Geo Big Grang Grang Series in Brown. $19.80
At first I thought the limbal ring was way to big (compared to the acuvue define I wore every day before this) but now I always go back to them because they make your eyes look so pretty!

I hope this helps you in your colored/circle ring hunt!

Here is my Fall Favorite Nail Polishes...Here I'm wearing the Grey ones :) 

and in case you haven't seen my review on the Acuvue Define Dailies here it is! have a great weekend everyone!

things I'm loving :)

Anastasia perfect brow pencil: I didn't like this when I first got it...but I've been working it again. It takes a little more work and effort, but the outcome is great!

Clinique Take the day off makeup remover: how did I forget how good this works? I wake up with no mascara flakes or raccoon eyes. not scaring your husband first thing in the morning = bonus!
Sigma Travel Kabuki: Love this sigmax brush. Its a travel brush but I just use it at home. So incredibly soft! 
MAC Tendertone in Purring: Smells sooooooooooooooooooooo good. It conditions your lips so well. Love this!

s l o w l y cooling

so it is finally finally FINALLY starting to cool down. Meaning, it wasn't triple digits yesterday. haha! In my mind it was gonna be a lot cooler...but regardless, I'm gonna start dressing for fall. It seems so ironic to me that my favorite season are fall and winter and I live in a place that is always just different degrees of summer! 
I got some early birthday money the other day so I thought I'd treat myself. This usually means me ending up buying stuff for the kids, but this time I actually found a couple of cute things!
These little booties were only $16 at Ross and are surprisingly comfortable. the sole is squishy if that makes any sense... then I found this cute polka dot denim shirt at Forever 21 along with some other cute things in the clearance section that was an additional 50% off the sale price!! Gotta love shirts for under $3!!!
anyways, I am so excited for cooler weather clothes. What are you most excited to wear?
Gotta go de-cling all my scarves. does that happen to yours too?

Today's Tidbit: Being Content

Learning to be thankful every day for all that I have.
If God did not give me one more thing, I could be happy for the rest of my life. He has blessed me so much.. what more could I ask for? 
I feel like it's not natural to be content, we always want more...the danger in that is that it will never be enough.  So I am learning to be content, thankful and happy with where I am, who I am and all that I have! Of course we should always work hard and aspire and dream...but be happy with where you are right now...and then be happy with where you are later! xoxo

DS Styles Rhinestone Phone Case for Samsung Galaxy S3

Ah! I love phone cases. I seriously search phone cases every day online. Its replacing my shoe obsession. ok, maybe not that far..but its coming close!
This beauty came in the mail yesterday from DS Styles and I absolutely love it!
I wasn't sure how 'expensive' it would look from the website...but I have to tell real life it looks pretty darn fancy! The Rhinestones are super clear and sparkly and don't' look like there are gonna fall off AND a huge AND you can't see the glue. There is something about seeing the glue or the glue strings that bothers me. I also thought that it would be heavy, but on the contrary. It is super light.
If you are a phone case lover too check out their site, they have a ton of cases and different mine is the 'rhinestone' but they have a huge selection!
