For the first look, I’ll be using:

Milani Lip Stick in Barely There (53)

Start with bare lips………then add lip stain for liner………..then lip stick………and lip gloss

And there you have it. Luscious Lips. HA!

This look is neutral.

For the next lip look follow the same steps with these products:

Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain in Mystical/Mistique (For Lip Liner)

Ulta Lip Stick #220

Ulta Brilliant Color LiP Gloss #90

Start with bare lip……..then add lip stain for liner…….then lip stick…….and lip gloss

This look gives you a touch of shimmer, and is a little more on the pink side.

I hope that these lip combos are helpful. If you noticed in both look I used lips stain instead of lip liner. I have found that many lip liners give my lip line breakouts….(YUCK). So I choose to use lip stain for the most part instead. If you ever have these breakouts you should try it. Stains give you the benefit of a liner with out the oily,crayon like product.

Go get your pouty pout on!

Ribons & Pearls for Sweet Little Girls

SONY DSC

Tutus and pearls….so adorable. I couldn’t resist sharing these photos. I have tried to have a mini photo shoot with the girls each month that we have had them home…(minus the 2 months in the NICU) Although we did get some good pics there as well. The first few months of taking pictures I thought was so hard because they would just lay there…and cry for the most part. I always thought,….when they can sit, crawl, stand, walk….it will be so much easier to get good shots. HA! NOT TRUE! Now, for the most part, they crawl right into the camera, won’t sit still, and look every other way than at the camera. So…..as you can see, I am not professional. But someday I will cherish these memories even if the photo is of them chewing on everything.

10 Months and counting….fixing to be 11.

How the time flies. I am so very blessed to be a mother to these sweet babies.

Color Me RED…

SONY DSC

Red Velvet Brownies…...and Red Heels!

SONY DSC

SONY DSC

Well,…as you can see, I had a SWEET TOOTH today (ok, like everyday)! So what better recipe to try out than and ooey, gooey, delicious Red Velvet Brownie (with the addition of a little dollop of cream cheese icing)?

Oh, and just to be festive….why not throw on some red heels. I mean, my kitchen needs to feel special too…right?!!!

Pretty easy recipe. Just be aware that it takes ALOT of red food coloring… “ALOT” meaning like the whole bottle.

So, here’s how it’s done:

Red Velvet Brownies

(adapted from Smells Like Home)

1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

4 eggs, at room temp

2 oz red food coloring

4 tsp vanilla extract

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour

6 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp baking powder

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour a 9X13 glass pan.

In stand mixer fitted with paddle, beat together butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy.

Add eggs one at a time, mixing after each. Then stir in food coloring and vanilla. Mix until incorporated.

Mix flour, cocoa, salt and baking powder in separate bowl and add in to mixture slowly. Do no over mix.

The batter will be thick. Make sure it is well incorporated and pour into pan.

 Bake for 30-40 minutes.

I cooked mine for 35 mins and it left a thin crust and an ooey gooey center. YUM!

Cool and serve.

I added some cream cheese frosting just to make it a little more decedent.

Enjoy!
