FOTD & new hair color

Ahhhh... it's finally starting to feel like spring and that means I'm slowly emerging from my winter slump. 

The winter does me no favors. At all. Winter is my enemy.

It's too cold to leave and I feel like I never have the need to get presentable which is depressing. Getting ready can make the world of a difference on your mood because you feel better

A fresh new hair color and a little fake tanner can somehow brighten my mood. Call me superficial. No, don't. 

I'm telling you though... sometimes that's all it takes.

For my hair color I used Garnier Darkest Brown 30-Sweet Cola. It's a really nice hair color but I think I'd like it just a pinch darker. But, I like it. 

For my FOTD:
Foundation: Make Up Forever HD 125
Concealer: MAC Prep & Primer Highlighter in Light Boost
Bronzer: NYX Bronzer #2
Blush: Laura Geller Pink Grapefruit
Highlighter: Dior Amber Rose
Mascara: L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black
Eyeshadow: Naked Palette- Sin and Dark Horse
Liner: Sephora Smoky Creme liner in Statue Bronze
Lips: NYX Liner in Nude and MAC Cremesheen Glass in Double Dare

Shirt: Marshall's 
Necklace: Forever 21
Earrings: Target

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain in 001 Honey

Most mornings for me are crazy chaos. I get up and get my two boys ready for school and that leaves little time for me to get ready. Because I don't want to look like a complete tornado when walking my kids into school I usually grab Revlon's Just Bitten lipstain in "Honey". It's the perfect rosy nude that doesn't clash with my bare face and brings some life back into me. It's a very complimentary color, for me at least. I find myself grabbing for this color for many reasons: the color is gorg!, the staying power is awesome (5-6 hours), and the glossy sheen is right up my ally. It does have a slight mint scent that I could do without but it's bearable. This is the 3rd lipstain I've gotten from the Just Bitten collection and I'm very impressed. 

What colors do you recommend from this line? I'm all ears!

These retail from $7-8 dollars anywhere Revlon is sold. 

Hope you have a beautiful FRIDAY! Whoooo!

Hello fellow Pinterest addict. Nice to meet you. I'm Sarah. 

I am totally addicted to Pinterest. I'd even go as far as to say it's a hobby, can pin-ing even be a hobby? If only I could be a professional Pinterester... my life would be complete. 

Enough about that.... the reason for this post is not to gain new followers (but, if you want to follow me... sweet! thanks) but I want to check out all of your boards. I love finding new awesome people to follow!

So, if you have a Pinterest go ahead and comment your link to me and I'd love to follow you!

Thank you guys for everything. I know that I haven't been the greatest blogger in the world and I don't know what I'm doing half the time in creating a blog but thank you for sticking with me, supporting me, encouraging me. It means the world to me. My goal is to start blogging again but in a way that's more transparent without fear. I think I'm going to start blogging in the way I really want to and just be me. I think I've felt so constricted to the fact this is a make-up blog that I haven't really even poured my heart and soul into it because I am so much more than make-up & I'd like to share that if you'd want me to.

Again, thanks for sticking with me.
