Baby Is Here! ~ Update!!

It has been quite awhile since I blogged. I feel like I've been saying this in all of my last blog posts as they have been so sporadic, but as you might know I was pregnant and towards the end I was extremely exhausted all the time so blogging was not really something I was thinking about.

Well two weeks ago, as of today, I gave birth to my second baby boy!

Labor was intense! More intense than my first. I was in labor for about 12 hours, which was long, but in the end I had my beautiful baby.

Nicholas was born on 11-5-11. He was 7 lbs 14 oz and 19 & 1/2 inches long.

He is perfectly healthy which is all we could have asked for.

One of the best things was my husband got to be here for his birth. He was not able to be here for the birth of our first son because he was deployed to Iraq, so him being here this time around was wonderful!

In daddy's arms, 2 days ago

I am breastfeeding so he is attached to me almost all the time, so I will make time for blogging when I can. I would like to blog as often and as regularly as I can but of course my baby comes first before everything else, but we are getting more settled into things, so we'll see how it works out. So please be patient and please don't leave my blog, I'm still here, just busier. :)

We couldn't be happier with our new addition to our family!

Stila In The Light Palette Review & Swatches

My JCPenny recently opened up a Sephora inside of it, even though we have a large Sephora already I was still excited to go check it out. I have heard that the Sephora stores inside JCPenny were usually pretty small but I was surprised at how large it is and how much they carry.

I was really pleased to see Stila because they pulled Stila out of the full Sephora, apparently it wasn't selling well, so I'm hoping it stays in JCPenny.

So of course I had to pick something up. This new palette instantly caught my eye. I swatched these in store and they felt amazing. Great color payoff and they went on butter smooth!

Colors from L to R top row ~ Bare, Kitten, Bliss, Sunset, & Sandstone.
Bottom Row ~ Champagne, Gilded Gold, Luster, Night Sky, & Ebony.

I swatched these with no primer and this is how great the color payoff is.

This is a great set of everyday colors but you can also create a really pretty smokey eye as well. I also love that you get a great set of matte shades as well, for your highlight and crease.

I have been using this everyday since I bought it. It definitely rivals the Urban Decay naked palette in my opinion. I honestly don't use my naked palette very often anymore, I feel like the matte shades in the, In The Light palette gives me an overall better eye look. I don't like when palettes don't include a good set of matte shades, because I don't need my highlight, crease, and lid color to all be shimmery, that's just too much. Stila's In The Light Palette gives me the matte shades that I want.

You also get a great Smudge Stick waterproof liner in Damsel. I have a couple of these already and I love them! They are super pigmented and glide on so smoothly. They are long lasting, which is always a plus!

Here is a swatch of Damsel.

This is going to be a great palette for the Holiday season coming up. You can create some great neutral eyes to pair with bold red lips! Ahh I love it!

Overall this is an amazing palette! Do not pass this one up! I highly recommend it. This will also make a great Christmas present or stocking stuffer!

You can find this on for $39

What do you think of Stila's In The Light Palette??
