September 2014 Ipsy

Love my Ipsy bag this month. So much so that I forgot to share it last week. This month's theme was Street Style, which would normally make me think that the make up was going to be too extreme for me, but I love everything in my bag this month and I'll actually use the majority of it on a regular basis. The bag is cute, a little rock star for regular use, but something I'll end up using. 

Crown Brush Infinity Crease/Shadow Brush ($6.99)   I can always use a new make up brush, so this is a great addition to my bag. The brush is fantastic, and I've already used it several times since getting it. I love that it's double-sided and multi-purpose. I don't wear much eyeshadow, but it's been great for blending my powder and for what little eyeshadow I do wear. 

I hate things that label themselves as "luxury" anything, it just sounds so pretentious and like you're trying too hard. I love the feel of this lotion. It really does feel luxurious and leaves my hands nice and soft without feeling greasy. What I don't love is the smell. I can't figure out quite what it smells like, but it's far to chemical-y for me to enjoy. Regardless, I'll end up using it and I stuck it in my desk at work because I'm always looking for lotion at work in the winter when my hands get painfully dry. 

I love this facewash. My face felt fresh and clean after using it, and it's fragrance free which I love because then I don't end up smelling like perfume for hours after using it. I can't find anything wrong with this facewash and I might actually go out and buy more when this is gone because I really like it. 

Cailyn Art Touch Tinted Lip Gloss in Love Affair ($19)
I don't hate this, but it's not a color I would choose for myself. Too bright and ostentatious for my usual look, but it will be a nice holiday lip color. It's a little sticky, but not bad for a gloss. I love how it feels on my lips and it lasted long enough that I had to take it off (we were leaving the house and it so didn't go with my yoga pants and unwashed hair).

Pacifica Natural Waterproof Eyeliner in Gun Metal ($11)
Okay, so I may or may not use this. I don't usually use eyeliner, but with a light touch, this color might be good for those really tired pregnant days (okay, so every day) to make my eyes pop a bit and make me look a little bit more awake. I'm going to play with this for a bit, because I may end up actually loving it. 

Like I said, a good Ipsy month. For $10 a month, it's a deal that can't be beat. This month I got a total of about $47.79. I say about because I had to estimate on a few products that were sample size (the lotion and the face wash). Either way though, that's almost $50 worth of beauty products for $10- and you don't pay for shipping. Please feel free to use my referral link if you want to sign up!

15 Weeks Pregnant With Boo # 2

Written 9/7/14

People keep telling me that I'll "turn the corner" soon and start to feel better... I'm starting to think they're all lying because they know I'm going to feel awful for the entire pregnancy.

  • Being back at work is rough. Being on my feet all day and the constant stress is making my all-day sickness worse. Luckily my new classroom is right across the hall from my classroom, making my quick escapes a little less noticeable. 
  • Oh, did I mention my latest grad school class started on Wednesday? Yeah, because more stress will make me feel even better.
  • Wednesday was also my birthday. I felt so awful that night that I couldn't even eat my birthday cheesecake. Drew was so sweet and bought me cake, dinner, and gifts... and all I could do was lay on the couch and feel miserable. Happy 28th birthday to me.
  • I'm debating about telling my students I'm pregnant. Pretty sure some of them already know. I've had a few very pointed stares at my belly the first couple of days of school and then they stare at me with a knowing smile. Maybe it's just pregnancy paranoia, but I'm wondering if I should just confirm it... on the other hand, telling them means dealing with the questions and their worries about when I'm leaving and if I'm coming back... so I think I'll wait a little longer.
  • I keep waiting to feel this baby move! Everything I've read says that 2nd time moms usually fell first movements between 12 and 16 weeks... nothing yet thought. I'm just hoping that less movement means this kid is going to be super mellow, unlike it's sister!
  • This week baby is the size of a navel orange, about 4 inches long and 2.5 ounces.
