Five on Friday - June 9, 2017

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you all had a great week! 

ONE

You guys!!!!! How cute are the sneak peek pictures from Elliott's photoshoot?! We used Calgary Newborn Photographer A.C. Photography (seriously if you are in Calgary, make sure to check her out!!!)


I sent her a look at our newborn announcement that was Star Wars and Harry Potter themed (you can see it here!) She saw the theme and was able to come out with these beautiful photos!!! I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures based on these few sneak peeks! 

TWO

I ordered gold flakes for my nails back in March and this is what i received - i'm not quite sure this is quite what I wanted! It sort of looks like tinfoil, but I will test it out and see how it works (I guess that's what I get for cheaping out and ordering from China!)

THREE
So it's been 6 weeks post-baby and my body should be ready to slowly start working out. I recapped my weight on this post, but I'm planning on losing about 20-30 pounds to put me at 160 to 150 lbs. I don't have a timeline for myself. I weighed myself right on week six and am at 177 pounds (I also took some before pictures, but i'm not quite ready to share those!) These week I have been focusing on longer walks, but next week I'm planning some more serious exercises! I will share my progress with you guys! 

FOUR 

I really thought than when I went on maternity leave that I would have a ton of time to garden; but, I can tell you that I haven't even gotten in my back yard to weed yet!) Good thing I planted some bulbs in the fall so I do still have some pretty flowers coming up - right now there is my dwarf lilac tree, alliums, bleeding hearts, spring cheer daffodils, and angelique tulips!

My gardening will be much more low maintainence this year! I think I'm only going to grow zucchini, carrots and parsnips and I will weed my garden so the rest of my flowers can grow!

FIVE
Okay you guys there is a ton of new makeup releases that I NEED!

Jaclyn Hill and Morphe just released the date for their eyeshadow palette!! It looks gorgeous and I know I will be ordering it on June 21!


A post shared by Urban Decay Cosmetics (@urbandecaycosmetics) on

Also, how did Urban Decay keep this such a good secret?! This palette is being released either on July 10 or 12 - I have seen both dates! This is the Naked Heat palette and is a gorgeous rust/orange neutral palette! This is gorgeous! 



Glamour Dolls Makeup is collaborating with Lisa Frank! This is a crazy 1990's throwback - I used to love Lisa Frank goodies in elementary school! They are releasing eyeshadows, nail polishes, brushes, etc. They seem affordable and will be released in September - I might pick a few up closer to the release date (they are available for pre-order right now!)



Also, as a crazy cat lady I can't resist any makeup with kitties on it!! Plus I love tarte, I need this! Tarte also has a cute pink clay and gold mask (it isn't on Sephora yet, but I hope it is soon!)



Too Faced is releasing sneak peeks for more Peach goodies! They have sneaked at a matte eyeshadow palette, peach powder - they are going to be released in August and I will have to get them all! 

I hope you all have a great weekend - I am going to Edmonton to visit family for the weekend! We will be staying in hotel with baby so wish us luck!
