The cold weather has not been kind to my powder foundation. In reading one of my new favorite blogs, I decieded i would once again try liquid. I took her recommendation of loreal true match....Tried it this morning andI kinda love it. Cost $8.00

This fall on tour my dear touring freind Mimi had been rocking a gorgeous lipstick. Searched all of Europe for it, finally last night i deciede it was time to splurg. I stopped into Sephora and picked it up! BITE Beauty....color "Pepper" creamy and perfect for fall/winter and bonus their lipstick is all organic and loaded with antioxidents. Yum :) Cost: $24.00

Powder Blush:
Illamasqua in the color of "Lover" peachy, pink and perfect for natural look or with a dark eye. really really excited with this purchase. This color will work year round. Cost $24.00

also picked up my go-to masquera from Cover Girl LashBlast, Volumizing Water Proof in very black. Never lets me down and doesnt end up at my cheeks by mid-day like my other masquera that I will be kind and not name :)

Back to work!

Happy Glowey Winter

Making Friends

Daves in Kentucky....making friends apparently.
He comes home Wednesday and we cant wait.

This Sunday Hunter, Vanessa and I went to the Venice beach. We played volleyball with a group of people. The girls held their own in a game with a bunch of grow ups. I was so proud of them! It was such a good workout and so much fun. Why dont i do this more often? I even went for a quick dip. So cold that i took my breath away...its really feeling like summer and I loved every second of it.

Just because....


Memorial Day

I hope everyone had a beautiful holiday weekend. We did! The weather was amazing. We even made it to the beach yesterday....reminding myself..Why don't I go more often!

The most meaningful part of the weekend was the Flag Placement we did at the Veterans Cemetery. A few girls from Hunters girls scout troop got together to help. By the end of the 2nd hour a flag had been placed on EVERY headstone. The place was filled with soldiers, girls scouts, boy scouts, sea scouts, ROTC, American heritage girls. Its quite surreal looking across acres of land and realizing that all these people gave their lives to their country.

Look at all the people in the background.

"I'm proud to be an American, were at least I know I'm free,
and I wont forgot the men who died and gave that right to me.
And I gladly stand up, next to you and defend her still today.
Cause their ain't no doubt I love this land.
God Bless the USA"

The Mission

I've waited my entire school life for this project. When I was in 4th grade all the other classes made their missions, for some reason...ours did not. Finally, 20 years later(yikes) its Hunters turn. In typical Hayflich fashion, a day before its due, we sit down to make this mission. I refuse to spend money on a kit and with the help of friends gathered old school boxes, construction paper, clay and Styrofoam and let loose my creative juices. At 11 pm last night, as I sprinkled my last bits of silver glitter into the historic fountain of the Santa Barbara mission, I did a happy dance. This thing looks like the real deal! A+ for sure.

So this morning we walk this four foot wide mission into school. In passing Hunters school mates comment on how cool it looks and Hunter and I proudly respond THANK YOU with a giggle.

My jaw dropped when I walked into class and saw the other missions. I wanted to ask the parents what architect they hired to build their child's mission! Miniature people, glass windows, wooden crosses, cemeteries with miniature coffins. What in hell!

Oh well, Im proud anyway. At least my mission looks like a 4th grader made it and not a USC graduate with a masters in engineering!
