Sharing some new makeup in this week’s 52. Are you familiar with Lisa Eldridge? I love her tutorials. She is truly a makeup maven. Over the last few months, I have been researching products to wear for the wedding. One thing in particular was a highlighter/illuminator. Lisa recommended the Body Shop’s Radiant Highlighter. I picked it up and am happy with the results. It gives my skin a definite glow. PS: I have no clue why I’m looking so serious in these photos. Low blood sugar or something.
And now, my week in photographs…
Sunday (April 15th): Cory and I visited Pix Patisserie and couldn’t resist sampling a few of their macaroons: the Fleur de Sel, Strawberry Balsamic, and Scotch Whisky. Which one was my favorite? The Fleur de Sel. It was mouthwatering. I’m basically a sucker for anything Fleur de Sel.
Monday (April 16th): I was so happy to see that the tree outside our balcony was finally blooming. Here is a peek at it from the balcony and another peek from the bedroom window.
Tuesday (April 17th): I’ve been really bad about wearing my glasses lately. That is changing right now!
Wednesday (April 18th): Puppy sighting! I sometimes just sit by the living room window and people/animal watch. We have a walking trail right in our backyard so. I’m usually not quick enough with my camera, but I was lucky enough to capture this guy!
Thursday (April 19th): A cup of green tea and some reading on a quiet afternoon.
Friday (April 20th): I had a meeting with my professor for my research paper that I’m writing for my Master’s Degree this particular morning. It is literally the last project I need to finish in order to earn my degree. I had been stressing about this meeting for two weeks and my stomach was filled with butterflies that morning. But you know what? The stress and worry was pointless because my meeting went incredibly well and my professor is proud of the work I’ve done so far. So much weight has been lifted off my shoulders! Cory and I went out for a little coffee date right after the meeting to celebrate.
Saturday (April 21st): It was a crazy beautiful day in Portland and Cory and I decided to get out and take advantage of it! We decided to go out to lunch at Podnah’s Pit for some barbecue. It had been recommended to us and did not disappoint. And no, all that food wasn’t just for me!
