Robin Williams, how we will miss you.

While cooking dinner last night Jason and I both read the news about the passing of Robin Williams...

I am absolutely heartbroken. Robin Williams has made me laugh and cry over the years, for as long as I can remember. He has played so many memorable characters and was always wonderfully perfect himself. It's awful that someone who brought us all so much joy was living in such a dark place.

We will continue to celebrate all of the wonderful films and memories we have of him for years to come. There is truly no one like him.

O Captain! My Captain! I hope you have found peace. You will be deeply missed.

it's been too long!

After telling you all how I was going to branch out with this little blog and write more, I didn't. I have good reasons!! Not only did Jason land a new job a few months ago, not only did the wedding planning start catching up with us BIG TIME, and not only did I start a new job that I didn't enjoy... but I got a new job doing something I absolutely love at an advertising agency!

I know this post is short, but I felt like I needed to explain that sudden absence. Blogging is fun, but when you don't have the time, you don't :( I am getting used to my new schedule, the wedding is coming up FAST, and hopefully I will have more time to dedicate to we loved here soon.

spring beauty roundup

Cold weather isn't kind to my sensitive skin, so I've been investing in higher quality products and wearing less make-up. Lately I've been applying my daily moisturizer, a little blush, eye make-up, and I'm done.

On the days I have a few too many spots that would require excessive concealer to cover I do blend BB cream into my moisturizer for all over coverage, but still keep it on the light side. It's a simple everyday look that's easy on my skin and it looks natural. (A little less natural when I get carried away with the eyeliner, but it's seriously the BEST liquid eyeliner I've ever used.)

So,  rather than tell you more about my weird skin, here's what I'm using:
 Maybelline The Falsies Mascara | Urban Decay eyeshadows (YDK & Verve) | Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush | Marc Jacobs Magic Marc'er Precision Eyeliner Pen | Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream

While I do love a good trip to Sephora or Ulta, I tend to stick with drugstore brands when it comes to a few products - blush and mascara. Blush colors sometimes look better in the store and I have been surprised more than once how much "quality" mascara brands clump. I don't mind being disappointed by a $6 tube of mascara, but I would hate to waste $30+ on it.

I didn't include a lip color above since I don't generally tend to wear lipstick/stain/gloss, but if you are looking for some color I did recently find Revlon's Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick and highly recommend it. Depending on which shade you prefer it compliments a natural look or can add a nice bright color to a more subtle palette.

Now that I've shared my favorite beauty products for spring, what are yours?
