The photos that didn’t make the cut to Instagram…
If you’re on the hunt for bright and fun lips for spring, check out these lip glosses by Melted. They are super pigmented, so what you see is what you get. They go on glossy, but turn matte-ish as it dries. I say “matte-ish” because it’s definitely matte, but it wipes off easily. Almost a little too easy. I wore the Melted Violet one day and then went to Qdoba for lunch and as I was eating my burrito the lipstick would come off on the tortilla. This happens whenever I eat with this lipstick. So, basically, I’ve eaten a good 3/4 of a tube of Melted lipstick.
Anyway, my favorite colors are above. 🙂
Trenton surprised us all by applying for AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) for the 2016-2017 school year. It’s a program that helps students prepare for college.
Now, the only thing left to do is find a program that helps the parents prepare for their children to leave for college.
Any Timehop users out there? It’s an app you can download that pulls up what you posted on social media one year ago, two years ago, 5 years ago, etc. It’s pretty funny to read your status updates and see your pictures from the past.
Every once in awhile Timehop pulls up a side-by-side shot of what you looked like, say 4 years ago, and then the camera app, so you can take a selfie and compare to now. The problem with this is that Timehop pulls up a photo that I posted to social media. So obviously if I posted it, I looked fairly decent, I had makeup on, I had good lighting. But the current photo, the selfie, usually catches me looking like the above. No makeup, double chin, looking confused. And it scare me.
Every. Single. Time.
Jackson celebrated his 11th birthday a few weeks ago, so we took him to Foot Locker to look at some shoes. This kid inherited his dad’s basketball skills and my love of shopping. He was in heaven looking at this wall of shoes.
And of course, picked the pair that were $135.00. What can I say, he is his mother’s son. (No, we didn’t buy him those shoes. He may have my fashion sense, but he doesn’t have a JOB.)
Why is it so hard for kids to keep their rooms clean? Okay, maybe they can’t make their own beds, but they could at least shut their dresser drawers! Or put the clothes in the hamper. I know, I know, pick your battles. Sigh.
I guess I’ll opt for open drawers, rather than using a SHARPIE to write what’s in them on the front.
