Haven't made a post since December 2009, really?

I had no idea it had been that long. I have missed blogging. It seems life has gotten in the way. even though it hasn't been much of a life.
No pity party here. It's just been difficult these past 2 years. A 4 year old daughter and a 2 year old son. I am devoid of adult conversation. I really can't even remember what it's like to be around other people other than my family. I'm not saying it's a bad thing, but sometimes it gets to be to much.
Another thing that has taken the back burner is my love of makeup and all things beauty related. Other than mascara and lip gloss and the rare occasion I wear a tinted moisturizer, i really haven't worn makeup. Really, I haven't bought makeup. I use to LOVE buying it, then coming home and swatching.
However, I actually still have bought nail polish. Maybe because it's so easy to buy. There is a large selection at my local grocery store.
This really isn't going to be a long post. Just wanted to say I've missed blogging and reading every ones blog. I miss the creative outlet it brought me. I want to come back to blogging.
Let's see where this goes next.....

Love and beauty, Jennifer

The photo does this polish no justice. I hate that it's been raining and no sun for a couple weeks. Boo

Still horrible weather over here in South Texas so not so great photos. But this is one of the most awesome glitter ploshes. It is so different. The base is a black jelly with different size orange glitter. It's love.

Review: Sleek Graphite palette

no base was used when swatching

I won this amazing Sleek Graphite palette from the awesome Sarah over at I Heart Cosmetics. When i found out i won i was beyond excited, because well i have been reading rave reviews on Sleek makeup. I am so sad that Sleek is not sold in the states at this time. I am official addicted and want to get my hands on all of the palettes some time soon hopefully.

On too the review. The packaging is black plastic and a perfect size to store in your kit. Each eyeshadow pan is about the size of a US nickle and there are 12 different shades ranging from highlilght, grays, black, and purples. I was most excited about this palette because i don't own any gray shadows.
The shadows are amazingly pigmented. I can't believe it is sold in drugstores. If you haven't got your hands on any of the Sleek cosmtics, I highly urge you too.

NOTD: China Glaze Ruby Pumps

Ruby Pumps released with the Wizard of Ooh Ahz collection. I can't express how much i love this color. Red jelly base with red micro glitter. Perfect application and isn't rough feeling like some glitter polishes and looks even more spectacular with the Seche Vite Top Coat.

Unfortunately the weather has been a cloudy raining mess lately so the photo was taken with a flash.
