My Thoughts on Makeup and a *GIVEAWAY*

During the week you can find me in either workout clothes (because I just left the gym), jeans and a tshirt (because this is my version of getting "dressed up" and I'm tired of work clothes) and yes, work clothes... because, well work. I don't wear makeup to the gym (yes I'm the babyface in Combat), unless it's an afternoon class and I'm already dressed for the day then yes my makeup ends up all over my shirt and my mascara is meeeelting off my eyelashes.

Years ago when I lived in Provo, Utah I was surrounded by beautiful women. Southern girls are naturally gorgeous, the Utah girls were made up from head to toe in perfect makeup, hair, and heels to class... in the SNOW. Ha, not kidding. It was a little bit of a culture shock for me. People are more laid back in the South, we were sweatpants to class and leave our hair in buns at the gym. I remember calling my mother one night from the Orem Gold's Gym in tears because just like at home, I was at the gym in no makeup and the girls there were decked out with curled hair, matchy matchy gym clothes, and flawless (probably waterproof) makeup. I felt so frumpy!!! I went through a stage of trying to create a look that was just It wasn't till I went back to the basics, watched a couple Youtube videos, that I used makeup the way my mother taught me to...

When I was a young girl, my mother always said to use makeup to show what was naturally ours, not to cover up and create a new face. I love makeup for what it was created to do accentuate the beauty that's already there.

Sundays are my days to feel pretty, dress nice for church and get lots of winks and smiles from my handsome hubby. I love getting up early before Little Monkey and The Big Dawg wake up, taking a looooong hot shower, applying lotion, cream to my hair, brushing my hair and teeth, and then applying fun makeup to accentuate my natural beauty.

Basically what I'm trying to say is, if you are reading this blog...
