Let's talk stippling!

Do y'all know what "stippling" is? Because I can guarantee y'all, I didn't know and definitely had to Google it and Youtube it. I had heard about stippling brushes and how they were awesome for applying your makeup to get that dewey/airbrushed look. Well y'all, every thing I started to find said "take your brush and move it in a stippling motion." HELLO!? I don't even know what a stipple is. Can you show me?! That's when I turned to trusty ole' YouTube for the win. Shasta Anne helped me figure out this whole "stippling" thing. Thanks lady!


After seeing how to use the brush, I was hooked. I happened to run into Target for some miscellaneous things, and promised my husband I wouldn't peruse around while he waited in the car. (There's a good reason they named it Target because it sucks. you. in. I swear I could LIVE there.) Well I stumbled walked by the make up section & boom! There it was. A stippling brush by E.L.F.  for a whopping $3 dollhairs. Sold. No if's, and's or but's about it. I snapped up the Small Stippling Brush and didn't look back. Mainly because I knew if I took any longer my husband would know that I was "perusing." Below you can see a picture. It is a combo of short & longer brush hairs.

I went home and used it the next morning before work with my concealer/blush. It was fabulous, and I definitely noticed a difference in the way my makeup went on and appeared after I was done. I LOVE IT. I am hoping to snag the larger stippling brush so I can use for my foundation/powder. Coming from a girl who really has no idea what she's doing with makeup, it's easy to use and play around with.

E.L.F. (Eyes. Lips. Face.) is a great way to try out new things, especially brushes, if you A. Don't know what you are doing & B. Don't want to spend a lot of money at first. You can't beat $3 for a makeup brush!! You can shop all their goodies here or check out your local Target.

This is not a sponsored post. E.L.F. has no idea who I am.

Happy stippling y'all!



Can I get a do over please?

Can we talk about last week? It was horrible; well not completely but the majority, yes.

My husband was out of town on business. Not usually a big deal. I'm a big girl and I can handle it. I spent my time at the gym to occupy my time and get my fitness on. You know to start getting ready for bikini season. I worked out HARD for two days, y'all. And then BAM! My right calf decides that there is something wrong with it. It crippled me. I could not even put full weight on it. I even stretched too but I guess it wasn't good enough.

Then one night I cooked mac & cheese (the blue box kind...family size, don't judge me.) I was apparently too impatient to wait on it to cool and what did I do? I BURNT MY INSIDES! People look at me like I am crazy when I tell them this but it can happen. Basically it felt like the mac & cheese was stuck somewhere in my upper GI tract and was scalding it. Um, ow! So that led to not wanting to eat for oh say, 3 days?! It was painful. But that helped out in the weight department because that led me to lose 6 ell bees y'all. I'm not complaining.

Fast forward to Saturday, we did a few errands and decided to meet another couple at Gravitopia here in Greenville that night. HIGHLY reccomend y'all trying it out!! Trampolines, foam pit, basketball hoops, you name it, they had it! It was FUN.

Until I realized that I had a UTI coming on. SERIOUSLY PEOPLE!? How the heck does this stuff all happen within a week's time? Well I combatted that with some extra antibiotics I had laying around the house and zapped it before it became full blown. PTL!

Sunday was a lazy day, we spent the majority of it on the couch watching Netflix and TV. And then there was the migraine that has now carried over to today. I kid you not guys. And I started my period this morning! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

All of this was going on whilst my stomach hated me and you get the idea.

So I am waiving the white flag and begging for a do-over this week. Sorry to leave y'all for so long to only come back and write this dreadful post but yes...all of this stuff occurred. I have no idea what's wrong or why I got picked to be the one with all the crappy luck last week/this weekend but oh well.

It's water under the bridge! Happy Monday y'all!!
