Get The Look: M∙A∙C Wash N Dry Summer Collection

May 22nd, 2015

Dooties Graduation

As far as I can remember I have always been a glam girl. I think from sitting on the counter watching my own mother get ready in the morning and always asking questions, she was the first person I saw where makeup and lashes. We would talk about new colors and how to apply makeup, it was so much fun and our bonding time together. My mom was here to visit us for a few days and I told her that I made an appointment for all three of us for my daughter’s graduation. She was delighted that she didnt have to do her own face. We headed to Lakeshore Mall in Gainesville, Ga where Alex works at the MAC counter inside of Belks. There she used the latest M.A.C Wash N Dry Summer Collection on all three of us. We are all different shades but the outcome was pretty much the same lol. Check out more pics and products used in the collection inside! Happy Friday!  Read the rest of this entry »

Dootie Graduates! #Classof2015

dootie graduation 7

I can not believe that I am typing this today and it still has not sunk all the way in yet! I’m a proud mom of a high school graduate! Some of you that have been longtime readers, have seen both of my kids grow up from my blog. Tyra, which I affectionately like to call Dootie, graduated yesterday afternoon from Collins Hill High School and we could not be more proud. Our families drove in to see her walk across that stage and it was such a great feeling. Funny though, I still have this vivid memory of me and Dootie in my kitchen back in Ohio. I would always wash the dishes by hand and sit her next to me on the counter and she would eat crackers and play with the bubbles. It was our mommy and daughter time, she loved it.
