Time for a Change!

it's time for a change around here! 
i am feeling a bit "sassy" with all my new eating habits, ironing my own clothes, letting go of my house-keeper (i do miss her so) getting ready for my brother's wedding reception in my back yard, watering my herbs, growing roses, making trips to the farmer's market and Whole Foods (two places I never frequented before) and trying to just "breathe".

with that said I made some decisions! first I decided to spend some money on a good pair of jeans and
WOW, did I find some I love! 
i paid $80 for a pair of Silver Jeans. 

i swear, i wore them 4 days straight and they never lost their shape.  i will never buy cheap jeans again. you can get them at many different places and they come in all sizes.  look them up and find a store near you! you won't be sorry!
my next "big girl" decision is to wear some "great" makeup!  i love all my eye shadows and blushes from here and there but i have worn Clinique foundation and powder FOREVER and it's time for something new and fresh!
i asked my friend Kristin who is an expert at this, literally, and she has lead me to Mac Studio Fix Fluid Foundation and a Mac #187 Brush to apply it with.

then I will top it off with Smashbox Halo Powder.

now, i do know that i will have to go to a MAC store to get my perfect color match and then i can order it online as needed. it is not a fortune. i looked it up online and the foundation is around $27 and the brush is around $45 (i won't need to replace the brush for a long time i am sure) and the Smashbox Powder is under $50. 

i can live with that and i am ready to put my big girl pants on and have a fresh new look for this Spring and Summer!

What kind of makeup do you use?

This is Me, Then.


  1. That is AWESOME! Love the jeans!!Right after Christmas I started wearing the American Beauty line at Kohl's and absolutely love it! Now if I can just look like their spokesperson Ashley Judd I'd be even happier - hey a mom can dream right! LOL!!!

  2. HEY!
    I too, was a Clinique girl until about 4 years ago...I too, switched to MAC. Been lovin it ever since! :-))
    P.S. Don't know if anyone told you, but if you save your emtpy containers (six I think), you get a free lip gloss (or your choice of something else I can't remember)!! I've done it a few times and I love being able to pick up a FREE treat when I save enough!!

    I LOVE the store in the Rice Village.


I love comments!
