Happy Valentine's Day!!

This Valentine's Day was a great was a lot of fun. In January I started helping out at a Pre-School that Sean's mom works at. It has been a lot of fun and the kids are so sweet. For kids Valentine's day is all about the cards, candy, and friends. They were so excited for the holiday that I decided to do something special for them! (And of course this was a Pinterest inspired project)

I made heart shaped crayon's for all the kids, and let me tell you...they loved these things, even the parents came up to me saying how cute they were and how kind it was to make these.

I made 28 crayon's and used about 40+ crayons. Here's how they turned out!

 The Crayons .97 cents at Target
 The Trays $2.50 at Target
 All chopped up!
 Getting ready to go in the oven! Baked at 230 degrees for about 10 minutes. The recipe called for 15 minutes but if you leave them in too long all the colors start to mesh together.
The finished product!!!

After pre-school I rushed home to get ready to go out to dinner with my Valentine! Sean and I went to a Greek Resturant in Santna Row called Thea. OMG!! This place is sooo delicious. We have been there once before and the food was so good that it litterly was the best dinner I have ever had in my life. Yes, it was THAT good.

We started out with some appitizers. We got Tatziki sauce with pita bread and some Dolmathes. For our entries I got Chicken Souvlaki and Sean got a Rack of Lamb. We were sooo full afterwards we had to get our dessert to go. If I could eat there everyday I would!

We had a pretty low-key night, we were both exhaused from our work days but all in all it was a great Valentine's Day <3

Shopping time!!

This weekend I did some poor bank account hates me now, but I got some really good stuff!

I have been in dire need of some new foundation. I was putting off buying some because I wasn't sure what kind I wanted. So I headed off to Sephora and got some really cool foundation. I asked the lady for "Something light and preferably something mineral" And she brought me this stuff.

This is Camera Ready by Smashbox. It's a 5 in 1! (gotta love those)
Here are all the things that this little guy does
1. Moisturize
2. Prime
3. Perfects skin
4. Protects (SPF 35)
5. Controls Oil

I Love this stuff. It really does everything it says.. I get an air brushed look just by using only this. Even one of my friends said something to me about how nice my skin looked. I have to admit though that I take very good care of my face (ex: washing my face every morning/night, moisturizing, toning, facials, ect.) so I really don't have much to cover on my face...but this foundation works great for me! I was reading on the box that it works great for a primer for your foundation if you like a lot of coverage.

SmashboxCamera Ready, in Light. $40

I did find this product is quite pricey for only 1oz but I just try not to use a lot.

Along with buying new foundation the lady talked me in to a new foundation brush since the one I was using was like 5 years old...yuck!

I picked up this little fella..
Pro Tapered Foundation Brush #58

This brush if much different from your every day foundation brush, this one is special because it has a pointed tip. The tip helps you get in those hard to reach places such as underneath the eyes, between your mouth and nose, and in between your nose and eyes. You can also use the tip for blending away blemishes. If I would have known about this brush when I started wearing make up 10 years ago I would have purchased this a while ago. Again I thought it was a bit pricey as well for $32 but it's high quality and a good investment.

After walking out of Sephora realizing I just spent $77 on 2 items I went to Target for some bargain shopping. I saw these shoes and instantly knew they were going to be my new favorite summer wedges.

They were only $24!!! I like them because I can wear them to work with out feeling like they are too high. Plus it's made out of material so it's soft on my feet. Now it just needs to be spring/summer so I can wear them!

Have a happy week!

Testing, testing 1 2 3

I just thought I'd check and see how blogging is from my new iPad. I just bought it yesterday and I'm soo hooked. I mean how was I living before this? Lol Any of my blogger friends have one of these amazing devices? This thing puts my NOOK color to shame. (all though I still recomend one)

On another note I'm having a hard time sleeping tonight because I'm so excited to be starting at my new salon tomorrow! Yayy!

Good night!
