Five on Friday - December 29, 2017

Happy last Friday of 2017! Can you guys believe that it is almost 2018?! I know I actually say this all the time; but, this year flew by! (Probably because I have missed a whole lot of sleep over the last 8 months!)

The best part of this week for me was Christmas!!! We spent Christmas Eve with my husband's family and then Christmas Day we hosted the big family dinner at our house!

I really want to make sure I had nice holiday makeup so I was going for a gold and red look:

The products I used for my Holiday Makeup is:
-Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Foundation in 2C3 Fresco
-Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer in Medium Light Neutral
-Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder
-Guerlain Meteorites Light Enhancing Powder 
-Make Up For Ever Blush Powder in S214 "Rosewood Blush"
-Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Powder in Candlelight for highlighter
-Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lip in "Braised"

And for the eyes to complete the look is:
-It Cosmetics Universal Brow Pencil 
-Morphe x Jaclyn Hill "The Jaclyn Hill Palette" 
-Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Kitten Karma
-Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner 
-L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

I love this eye look - it took me a few months to warm up to the Jaclyn Hill palette; but, now I love it! Also, those Stila liquid eye shadows are amazing! This was my first time using the Bite Beauty Liquid Lipstick and my thoughts are still a little up in the air - it transferred a lot more than what I was expecting in a liquid lip, but it was comfortable to wear and the shade was the perfect red! 


Here is a few of the goodies I got this year for Christmas! I am most excited about the big Ring Light my husband got for me! I have been considering starting videos - or this will just help with better pictures! We will see what happens! And then a few other goodies - chocolate, soap, Mac Fix+ set, lots of tea, an electric toothbrush, and a mystery set from The Face Shop! I also got a few gift cards, kitchen goodies, etc. 

The best part about Christmas was that it was Elliott's first Christmas! Of course, he is a little young to understand so he liked crinkling the wrapping paper and seeing the toys he got! 

On top of these my presents from my 2 boys were - 1 is crawling now and the other 1 is now taller than me! 


And, with Christmas comes an end to my David's Tea Advent Calendar! The last couple of days included: Day 22 - Candy Cane Crush,  Day 23 - White Cranberry Bark, Day 24 - Santa's Secret, and Day 25 - a little ornament and $5 off coupon! I loved the White Cranberry Bark and am excited to try everything else! 


Just before Christmas this little dude turned 8 months old and since then he has had a busy week! He is crawling, pulling himself and has turned in to a bit of a monkey now! 


If you missed my post this week - I'm celebrating my 1000th blog post! And as a thank you to my readers, I am giving away a Too Faced Best Year Ever set! This comes with 3 palettes and a mini mascara! Head to my original post here - it is an international giveaway!
