Looking Fresh


Hi Everyone!!

I thought I would share a few of my favorite beauty products that I am addicted to.  These products give me the Fresh-Dewy look this girl loves.

I always begin with a clean slate which is my First Aid Beauty Cleanser, First Aid Beauty Moisturizer and Must Dew by Limelight. Once I have step one complete I am ready for my day-look application.

Step 1: Tarte Shape Tape, 2 in 1 full covereage concealer. Sculpt and highlight as you mask any imperfections. It is hydrating, long wearing and delivers a radiant coverage.
(I apply with a concealer sponge)

Step 2: Tarte BB Cream, Oil -free, vegan tinited moisturizer that offers light-medium coverage. I love that it diffuses the look of fine lines and wrinkles. It has an Amazonian clay-powered formula with chamomile and vitamins A, C, and E to nourish your complexion. (I apply with a blender sponge)

Step 3: MAC Studio Fix Powder, A one-step powder/foudation that gives skin a smooth, flawless finish. It is long-wearing and adds a velvety texture that allows your skin to breathe. (I lightly dust over my face with my Limelight Professional Vegan All Over Powder Brush)

Step 4: Limelight Perfect Bronzer, This bronzer I use below my cheek bones to give a light sun-kissed illusion. It is ideal for all skin tones to enhance your natural glow.
(I apply my bronzer with my tapered powder brush by Limelight)

Step 5: Urban Decay Perversion Mascara, This ultra creamy, lengthening and volumizing mascara is amazing. It glides on easily and creates sexy lashes instantly.
(I apply as directed for stand-out lashes)

Step 6: MAC Prep+Prime fix +, Finish your look with this lightweight mist of water packed with vitamins and minerals. It is hydrating, sets and prolongs the wear of makeup. (Spray and get on with your bad self!)

As always, thank you all for following my blog!

Kale Yeah!


I have been missing the crunch of crackers and chips living the keto lifestyle, so I made Kale Chips! Kale Yeah! I did and they are delicious and satisfied my craving for traditional chips.

KALE CHIPS

1 head of kale
2 tablespoons  avocado oil or olive oil
Himalayan pink salt, for sprinkling

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Wash and dry kale and cut into bite size pieces, removing the ribs. Lay kale on baking sheet lined with parchment paper and toss with avocado or olive oil and salt. Bake until crisp about 10-15 minutes, turning leaves halfway through.

Enjoy!

Perfectly Imperfect


I have been working on writing this piece for a while now. Kelsey Shaffor has inspired me in so many ways at her young age of 23. I first began seeing absolutly stunning photographs she captured of my two sons (Casey and Tanner) and their significant others (Alicia and Camryn) and then reading and really getting to know Kelsy. We have never met in person, but fell in love with her talent, beauty, bravery, strength and passion for photography.

Meet Kelsy, a 23 year old that finds her passion in life – photography. Kelsey says her life turned upside down in 2015 , she was diagnosed with brain cancer. In 2016 she had a craniotomy and AWESOME news, no cancer!

“Honestly, after going trough all that, I consider it a blessing. Why? It’s made me a better person. I view things in such a new perspective. I am more empathetic of others and I never take life for granted. the recovering process was and still is to this day a struggle. As soon as I woke up from surgery, I felt like a completely different person. It was insane! Like I said, I consider this whole situation a huge blessing. I finally found out who and what I’m supposed to do in life,”

Like Kelsy stated above, she’s able to view the world with a totally new and improved perspective. Kelsy realized life is far from perfect, but she also realized life is perectly imperfect. There for that is her motto. Kelsy loves kodak, one of  a kind moments, moments of pure laughter, love and above all that show the real ‘you’. She is all about those perfectly imperfect crazy beautiful moments. She aims for the moments that mean something, feel something. She’s far from poses and awkward smiles, but sometimes will crack the strangest jokes just to help make all the tension wash away. Most importantly she loves creating a relationship with her clients. Clearly it works. Not only does Kelsy enjoy photography, but she also enjoys watching Harry Potter over, over, over…..and oh, she loves Disneyland.

“I honestly love Disneyland so much. When I see little kids eyes light up with pure joy, I think its amazing. It’s moments like that we take for granted. Beacuse unfortunately life can change at any moments. So why don’t we live in the moment? As a photographer, that is my goal with my clients, to capture them in the moment. Most of the time I tell them ‘alright so you are going to run into each others arms and I dont care if you fall, because guess what… I’m going to capture it!’ and then we all laugh about it. But hey, it works!”

Thank you Kelsy for allowing us all to see your talent and view life through your lens. Its been an absolute honor and I look forward to see your amazing work in the future.
