A Sweet Life of Innocence 2

A Sweet Life of Innocence 2

I have always loved Disney movies. I loved them as a child and from all these years I still feel like a kid at heart watching them with my daughter. I love the fact that Disney has stayed true to their young viewers. Like in some kid movies there are jokes and comments that only adults would get. With Disney their movies are for the pure enjoyment of the child. I made a previous post of how much my daughter loves Disney’s “The Little Mermaid”, this has become her all time favorite movie. In the past two years we have played this movie so much that we have gone through 2 copies of it. It has gotten to the point that I play the soundtrack over and over in the car driving (which is a good thing, I rather her listen to the little mermaid over the radio). I wanted to share this video with my readers, because it will show you the true love my daughter has for this movie. If you don’t believe in love at first site, this video will change your mind. Seeing her reaction to watching the little mermaid, I knew she would be hooked for life. I hope you enjoy, and please share some of the movies your children love and can’t get enough of!

Need a Blog Make-Over










Photobucket



If you are looking for a blog make-over, you have to check out Kate at www.cutesycouturedesigns.com! She is awesome to work with and very professional. I had no clue what I wanted my blog to look like. I gave her a color palette to work with and with her creativeness she did the rest. She captured me and my style in the style of the blog. She works very hard and is very proficient in what she does. I was told it would take 2 to 3 days and it was just that. She let me she let me preview everything before it went live, so I could have my blog to my liking! I would definitely recommend Kate to anyone looking for a blog makeover!

Orglamix Review

Orglamix Review



Mineral makeup has become known world wide. People are turning to mineral makeup because they have no fillers or harsh chemicals that can cause clogged pores and blemishes. Orglamix Pure Organic Mineral Eye shadow offers a wide variety of bright vibrant colors that are 100% pure mineral pigments that deliver gorgeous smudge-proof, crease-free and water-resistant color in one stroke 


I was offered to do a review, and in this review I was to choose three products from the organic eye shadow, foundation, or glow. It was so hard for me to just choose three colors. They have every color in the rainbow and beyond. I had to narrow down my choices so, I chose two eye colors in solar and Vetiver and I also chose pure organic mineral glow in Tourmaline.


 The glow can also be used as a bronzer/blush (I even used it as a highlight for my eyes). All of their pigments are versatile and can vary in use, from eye, lips, cheeks and even nails.

When you get your purchase they come in 8g jars. The amount that is in the jars look small, but I can say a little goes a long way. I have had them for over a month wearing them at least 3 times a week and I have yet to go through half of what I have. The price at 4.99 per jar is also a highlight of this product. You get way more then your money’s worth, because a little of this product goes a long way.

 I also like the fact that you can go from a subtle look to dramatic. I use a primer with every look just to hold the powder in place. For a subtle look, I just add the powder straight to my eye. For a more dramatic look and for the color to pop more I dampen my makeup brush, tap it to the powder and then apply it on the eye lid. I’m very pleased with the makeup that I have reviewed for Orglamix, and I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a change in makeup and wanting something affordable and a good quality.

To Shoot a Hummingbird

I was at my grandmothers the other day and while sitting on her porch and a hummingbird kept coming up to the feeder. It cane by several times and each time it would stay longer and longer. I thought what a great thing to get on camera. Well it was easier said then done. I didn’t realize at the time how fast these birds are. After 2 hours of me concentrating on this feeder I finally did it. One I didn't realize I did, and the other is blurry, but glad I got it. These little birds are so fast and every time it would come into view, it took my camera too long to focus. When I had the camera on manual focus, I was just not fast enough when I realized the bird was at the feeder. Why am I so fascinated with this bird? Growing up my dad would always buy my mom any and everything that had to do with hummingbirds. Our kitchen in the house I grew up was decorated in hummingbirds. So always when I see a humming bird it makes me think of my mom. She was delighted to see these pictures I took. I promise to be able to post better pictures one day.

A Sweet Life Of Innocence

A Sweet Life of Innocence

I can sit back and remember the fun I had growing up. It seems like back then everything was so innocent. I didn’t have a care in the world. My parents never worried about us playing outside by ourselves, or walking around the neighborhoods visiting neighbors. We were free to come and go as we pleased. I sit her and think about how much my world has changed. How the times were it was ok to be a care free child has gone. I see myself as a parent now and how I’m always with my daughter. I always have one eye on her and the other on the world around her. I look in my daughters eyes and know I want her to feel the way I did when I was her age. So I have started to introduce her to the things I did when I was growing up!
I started last year with playing in the leaves and being outside even when it’s cold out.
Introducing her to movies that I used to watch when I was little. One of my all time favorites was Disney “The Little Mermaid”, and surprisingly it has become hers. This is just one of the joys of the sweet life that I hold. Being able to share the childhood I remember with her.
If this post had a theme song, it would “Part Of Your World” from the little mermaid.
This is my daughter singing her very own version:

Sigma Professional Brush Kit Review



I was sent the Sigma professional brush kit for face and eyes a few weeks ago to try out. I waited a while before I reviewed them to see how they behaved after I used and washed them several times.


I have heard that Sigma is a brand that is popular for replicating Mac's brushes. I don’t personally own any Mac brushes, but from the research I have done they are quite the comparison.
I have had these brushes for about three weeks now. I have washed them all at least twice in Johnson and Johnson baby shampoo. With these brushes, I haven't experienced any bleeding or shedding. I don’t own any professional brushes, but compared to the drugstore brands I have you can feel these are a much higher quality.



This kit came with a pamphlet that lists all the brushes and their uses. I have been known to use one brush for every makeup application, from my eye’s to cheeks to concealer. Having this pamphlet was very helpful for me as I am a beginner with using these brushes, and applying make up the correct way.
I would recommend this kit to anyone that is looking for a professional brush kit on a budget. If you are looking for quality and affordability Sigma’s professional kit is the way to go!


Here is what is included in this complete kit:
Brushes in this kit:
Small Angle - E65 - Essential for the application of gel or cream eyeliner on the upper and lower lash line. This brush is also excellent for filling out the eyebrows. Synthetic bristles.

Medium Angled Shading - E70 - Angled, tapered, flat top. Ideal to apply highlight shades underneath the eyebrow and on the inner corners. It can also be used for a precise application of darker shades on the crease area. Natural bristles.

Large Shader - E60 - Flat shape is ideal for application of cream formulas and eye shadow primers. It also works great with loose eye shadows or pigments. Can be used to apply color all over the lid or precisely on the lash line. Natural bristles.

Pencil - E30 - Precise application of color on the crease, outer corner, and upper and lower lash line. Also ideal to smudge out pencil liner. Natural bristles.

Large Angled Contour - F40 - The angled shape makes this brush ideal to apply blush or contour shades. Natural bristles.

Large Powder - F30 - Very dense with a rounded top. Ideal to apply powder products on face and body. Natural bristles.

Duo Fibre - F50 - Specially designed to generate an ‘airbrushed’ finish when used to apply liquid foundation. It can also be used to apply blush, highlight shades and loose pigments. Blend of synthetic and natural bristles.

Foundation - F60 - Can be used to apply liquid or cream foundation. It is also recommended to apply moisturizers and conceal large areas. Synthetic bristles.

Concealer - F70 - The rounded, tapered, flat shape makes this brush ideal to conceal the under eye area. It is also recommended for a precise application in small areas. Synthetic bristles.

Tapered Blending - E40 - Rounded and tapered top. Specially designed to apply and blend color on the crease. Natural bristles.

Eye Shading - E55 - Soft and dense with a rounded finish. Can be used to apply pressed or loose eye shadows and pigments. Ideal to build intense color on the eyelid. Natural bristles.

Eyeliner - E05 - An extra-fine tipped synthetic fiber brush that delivers a precise, firm, even stroke to line the eyes.

Sigma Makeup offers a free travel size E25 brush with this kit!
