A Pop of Color


If you know me at all, I normally do not wear a lot of makeup especially in the Spring and Summer months. I have really sensitive skin…everything breaks me out….and it lasts weeks I swear.

Except I do love a pop of color on my lips during the Spring and Summer months. There is just something I love about a poppy color, it just brings more color to your face.

I have to admit and am horrible at finding pink colors that go well with my skin tone. Naturally, I am on the more fairer side, but when it comes to pink colors I am never satisfied with the colors I get. They are either do Barbie doll pink or way too hot pink.

Maybe I am just to indecisive….or too picky.

I found this perfect color in Showy Flamboyante by Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm. I love it! It’s perfect for the upcoming months. I think you can wear it day or night! This is perfect for you to dress up those t-shirt wearing days and will make a perfect date night color as well. You honestly can’t go wrong with this color by any means.

This lip balm is matte, but it leaves your lips feeling hydrated at all times. It’s not flaky.. and the color doesn’t fade. This will definitely be a staple in my purse in the upcoming months.

When I went to pick Sophia up from KDO today, the one teacher that I just love asked if I went on a date or if I had a date. I think for the fact that my hair and makeup was done for once.

Yes, I am that mother that picks their child up with bare minimum make-up on and sporting the ‘athleisure wear look.’ I normally hit the gym or walk the dog on KDO days…Im busy during those four hours.

I responded to her teacher by saying “nope, no date…maybe in the future…I just had a few extra minutes to myself before coming to get Sophia.” I think in some ways she was a little disappointed, but it did make me feel good. It’s been a really long time since I have felt attractive or felt good about myself.

I could totally us meeting up for coffee one day…she sort of reminds me of Ms. Frizzle from The Magic School Bus.

One a different note:


This mama has graduated from a temporary glasses wearer to a full-time glasses wearer. Make sense?

I recently went to the eye doctor for the first time in almost three years, and he said that my astigmatism has gotten worse since having Sophia. He now recommends me wearing them all the time.

So with that being said…

I also got contact de lensa! (must be said in a French accent)

And I love them! I can see details really well…and my headaches have seemed to have disappeared. Totally grateful for that.

I had contact de lensa about fifteen years ago, until they got stuck on my eye ball…I absolutely freaked and vowed to never wear them again.

Until now!


I am actually quite fond of the glasses, but I think I will only wear them at night or mornings. Except when I happen to tear my contacts or loose them.

That is bound to happen in the near future, I am sure of it.

Just wait until I loose both!

Yes, I am that person that will manage to loose both.


It wouldn’t be a post if I didn’t have a photo of my girl in it! This was after KDO, she ultimately wouldn’t take a photo with me.

Do you have a favorite summer lipstick ? Please share with me!
