Why is it Monday so fast? As always, it feels like the weekend flew by! Today I’m liking up with Biana from B Loved Boston for my weekend recap.
I feel like I’ve been in and out of town for the last few weeks so it was nice to stay put and spend time with everyone here.
Friday was pretty low key. I have a few products that I’ve been testing out to review so I spent time testing and taking pictures of this Hourglass Surreal Light Palette. I keep trying and trying to find a good spot for pictures of my makeup and unfortunately the only way to have decent lighting is to take pictures looking in my vanity mirror. Also, I’m not going to pretend I have a professional photographer to shoot me so my pics are limited to my own arms range of motion hehe. I also can’t seem to coordinate looking towards to camera…
Now is also a good time to mention that I have total resting bitch face so I have to constantly remind myself to smile a little so I don’t look like a bulldog in every shot.
Anyways, I used the powder, bronzer, blush and highlight that came in the palette. A full review and thoughts will be up this week 🙂
On Saturday I went to a spin class with my friend Naush. After that we met up with a couple of other friends to watch Bridget Jone’s Baby. I’ve been wanting to watch it since I saw the trailer. Mostly because I LOVE Patrick Dempsey.
Since it’s a sequel and a rom com I didn’t have high expectations. However, I was pleasantly surprised. It was a lot funnier and more entertaining than I was expecting. Usually movie trailers give away the funniest part of a movie, but we were laughing the entire time. I went with my girlfriends, and the theater was 98% women, but I actually think my husband would have enjoyed it too. Regardless, it was the perfect girl’s night movie. I highly recommend.
After that my friend Wendy and I picked up my husband and her fiance (they were having a “guy’s night” at my house… otherwise known as playing video games) and went to dinner. And because dinner wasn’t enough, after that we ate these:
Yes, that is cookie monster ice cream sandwhiched into a glazed donut…
It’s even more delicious than it sounds. The shop is right by our house which is highly convinient but extremely dangerous. We’ve already been 3 times since we discovered it.
Yesterday we went to brunch with my sister at Ascencio at the Crescent Court. The coffee was delicious, but the food was just okay. There are so many delicious brunch places in Dallas that it just seemed meh to us. I did get to meet one of my husband’s lovely coworkers and her husband (Hi Pam!) so not all was lost.
The day was pretty cloudy so I got to take pictures for a decent amount of time. Usually I only have about a one hour window in the mornings to take pictures before it’s too bright. But, given the clouds on Sunday I had a few hours. This is the mess I usually make while taking pics.
I have a few blog posts lined up for the week including the review on the Hourglass palette, a recent beauty product fails post and Confessional Thursday so stay tuned! Also, in case you missed my instagram, TheBalm cosmetics are on Hautelook until Wednesday. Everything is 50% so a great time to stock up!
Hope you all have a wonderful week!
