Flash Clean

Wednesday, April 29, 2015

I saw this in store, and was intrigued by what it promises. When I use mascara, the only kind that I reach for is waterproof because it holds my curls better. However, when it comes to taking off my mascara, it is a lot of work. I have tried a lot of different make up wipes, and none has taken off all my mascara. Most will just give me raccoon eyes. And on the back of this bottle, it says that "it releases powerful cleansing agents to quickly break up the most stubborn makeup, even waterproof mascara." After using this, I definitely agree that it will take off the most stubborn makeup. The price is also right on point.

The way that I used it was more of a makeup remover. However, you can use this as a makeup remover, cleanser, and moisturizer. The directions on the bottle states, "With eyes closed, apply lotion to face directly with fingers or on a cotton pad. Gently massage all over face and wipe clean with a cotton pad. No rinsing necessary." I haven't tried it that way yet, but I have my own cleanser and moisturizer that I like so I prefer to use it strictly to remove my face in lieu of a make up wipe.

What are some of your favorite make up removers?


The Years Are Short

Tuesday, April 28, 2015

They say the days are long, but the years are short. And boy, I don't know who "they" are, but they sure are right. It doesn't help that I am in a different place, and I don't know anyone. It doesn't help that I'm also super tired. Who knew taking care of a little boy would be so tiring! Hugs to our daycare lady, and all she did! Not only did she watch Mason, she watched other kids too! We miss her dearly.

My attempt to get out of the house today failed miserably. Not only was the library closed, Mason also fell asleep. So back we came, and I realized I was starving so I am eating while Mason is sleeping. Anyways, presenting the apples of my eyes!

A winky wink

Friday, April 24, 2015

Brandon was winking at Mason today, and our little boy winked back. I saw him wink the first time, and I thought something was in his eye, but the second time he winked, I realized what he was doing. It was so darn cute!!! This little boy continues to amaze us, and we are so blessed to be parents to our little angel.

Happy weekend!


Happy Earth Day!

Wednesday, April 22, 2015

My friend bought some flowers to plant in her yard as well as some to put in her backyard, and it looks beautiful. She has some big teacups for her plants, and we thought it would be funny to stick Mason in them, and take pictures (naturally). Happy Earth Day, and here's to grooming our little ones for the future!


On Tummy Sleeping

Tuesday, April 21, 2015

As a newborn, Mason did not like being swaddled much. And each day, he seemed to grow even stronger, and would break out of his swaddle and not sleep much. During the day, he would sleep for short period of time, and continuously throughout the day. I went on the chicken diet, and it was super hard to make the dish fresh, every single time. My girlfriend told me that her babies were stomach sleepers. As a new mom, I listened closely to my pediatrician about not putting him on his tummy, and instead on his back. But he wasn't sleeping well, and I wasn't operating well either. So my girlfriend and I talked about it some more, I prayed about it, and I finally let him sleep on his tummy. And from then on out, he has been a tummy sleeper, and a great sleeper. 

This is not to say that we aren't worried about SIDS, as I think about it everyday, but Mason has been doing good, and he is developing as he should, so that is reassuring for me.

Were your babies tummy sleeper? Did you ever had concerns about this?


House Hunting, Part II

Monday, April 20, 2015

This week's life lesson has been on compromising. As much as I want it all, the open floor plan, the hardwood floors, the updated kitchen, the jet tub, the big closets, the nice neighborhood - I just can't have it all! We have a budget, and I keep stretching it more and more and more. We had a regrouping talk about what is important to us, and where we want to be as far as price so I think we will hopefully be making a decision this weekend. That's both scary, and also exciting.

While we were out and about, we found a thai restaurant, and had some yummy papaya salad, along with some panang curry and pad thai.

Thanks for following along!

Happy 9 Months!

Wednesday, April 15, 2015

Seriously, where has the past 9 months gone?!!! In three months time, my baby boy will be one!!! That completely baffles me.

Last week, our friend's daughter came home from school, looked at Mason, and said, "Mason looks like a little boy today." And that perfectly sums up his growth the past month. He is starting to lose that baby look, and to start to look like a little boy. I'm sad, but I'm also glad for him, and to see him continue to grow and learn. He is overly active, crawling everywhere. He hasn't yet crawled on his knees, just his typical army crawl. He holds his bottle on his own now, although he prefers for us to hold it for him. He loves to look around, and he loves to discover new things. With the move, I haven't been able to schedule a 9-month checkup for him yet, but I really need to, as I am super curious about his stats. His favorite food is Apple + Chicken, and his little puffs (Sweet Potato). He is a fantastic road tripper, as I have been lugging him everywhere between Oregon and Washington State. He likes to kick me in bed, and he hates anything close to his feet. If he feels anything at his feet, he will kick. He loves to take over the bed, and doesn't like to give me any room to sleep.

As he is getting older, he needs more things to do and I am starting to feel a bit run down as I don't have any ideas what to do with him. He's not big enough to go to the playground, but he loves to move around, and play. Any suggestions? I'm all ears!


hey sugar!

Friday, April 10, 2015

Best friends share their favorite beauty products with you. And my girlfriend sure did share, and I love it! I was a previous Vaseline addict. I've tried too many products that sit on top of my lips, and does nothing for my lips after a while. This is a serious my favorite product for my lips right now. It moisturizes my lips very well, and makes all my lipsticks easier to glide on. My lips used to get chapped more often, but now I totally use this, maybe once a day.

Have you tried this? What are your thoughts?

Have a great weekend!
