Makeup I am wearing

Makeup I am wearing

This morning, this is the makeup that I am using. I am trying to make more of an effort to use all of the makeup that I have, so I am finding that blogging about it is helping with that endeavor.

Marc Jacobs Starlet eyeshadow pallet (I used the darkest color this morning)
Mac’s Raizin blush
Rimmel’s Stay Matte Primer (sometimes I prefer to just use this instead of foundation.)
Cargo lip gloss (Sorry, I don’t remember the color)
Bath and Body works Paris In Bloom body spray

Felt like beautifying myself

I must have been feeling wonderful this morning because I felt like wearing make up. Not typical on the weekends for me, but anyway…this is what I wore.
Foundation – Tarte amazionian clay full coverage airbrush foundation in rich sand
Blush – Tarte amazonian clay 12 hour blush in blushing bride
Eyeshadow – Urban Decay Asphyxia (New buy! It’s beautiful)
Lips – Maybelline colorsensational elixir in amethyst potion
Scent – Victoria Secret’s Pink Spring Break (bought this last year during the semi-annual sale and wish I could find a bigger bottle. I love it.)

Stressed out

How do you handle stress?  My doctor once told me that I didn’t handle stress well.  She’s right.  Most of the time when I have to much going on and to many demands on me, I want to just abandon everything.  I used to go to a private area and cry for about ten minutes, but I have stopped doing that.  It never worked anyway. 

So, what to do?  I usually just take a few breaths to try to calm myself down.  I tell myself to stop over-reacting and just take a minute to do something unrelated to the thing that is causing me stress.  Sometimes, I eat sweets (definitely not the best solution for me).

Anyway, it’s a work in process.  I’m still trying to figure out how to become that calm, cool, and collected person that I would like to be.  It’s right up there on my list to become extremely smart and successful. 

Talk to you all soon……..

Don’t sweat the small stuff

This week I have been thinking about this saying. I have just realized that there is also a book based on this saying/theory. I have been trying to practice doing this during the week. There seems as if there is so much going on that I am just trying to concentrate on one thing at a time and don’t let the little things overwhelm me. I’m sure there will be huge hiccups in life that I will have to concentrate on more!
