My Two Cents on Lipsense

Image may contain: 2 people, people smiling, closeup
If you haven't heard of Lipsense you may just be an alien because it's taken OVER the lipstick world over the past few months.  Being an avid lipstick lover, I couldn't WAIT to get my hand on a tube.

Enter one of my favorite little ladies, Ms Kayla Morse.  A dear friend of mine and avid reader of this 'ol blog (ok, my biggest fan), began selling last last year via her so-not-annoying Facebook page, KC Kissable Lips.

If you're anything like me, you have Facebook acquaintances pimping out their products to you left and right.

Kayla, she's a good pimp.  I promise.

No automatic alt text available.

She's not in your face, but what she does do is share the gloriousness of Lipsense with group members a few times a week.  She also runs different witty specials such as "Selfie Saturday," which allows members to see what different colors look like on different complexions as well as the adorable "March Matte-ness," which provides all of us ladies opportunities to win new colors.

And c'mon, who wouldn't love an extensive stash of Lipsense to choose from each morning?

When Kayla reached out to see if I'd give Lipsense a try, I didn't hesitate.  She helped me pick out a few colors and they were in my mailbox less than 48 hours later.  Girl is ON IT.

I wanted to try them out for a few weeks to ensure I did thorough research before sharing my thoughts with all of you.  I even took them on a ski trip to see how they held up after a day on the mountain.  The results....amazing.

Color pictured above, Roseberry.  I also received Bella which is more subtle and wearable on yoga pant days.  

While I love love love that it doesn't come off on my white coffee mugs, clear wine classes or with food, what I love the most is the convenience.  With two little's running around, I don't have time to reapply lipstick.  Let's be honest, I'm winning if I remember to even put it on once a day. With Lipsense, I can throw it on in the morning with the rest of my makeup and I'm done.  FOR THE ENTIRE DAY.  

I will say, one thing I learned is that you need to reapply the gloss throughout the day to ensure extra long wear. I love the feeling of the gloss on my lips, so I definitely don't mind at all!  But, if i'm wanting to go with more of a matte look, I leave the gloss off. 

If I haven't sold you yet, would trying it yourself help?

Kayla is doing a special giveaway to any of you who join her Facebook page, KC Kissable Lips, and the winner gets FREE LIPSENSE. Seriously, how easy is that?  She'll annouce the winner on her page, Friday, April14th.  Additionally, she's offering new members 10% off a starter kit.

So, hop on it.  Like that Easter pun?

SJ || Four Months

Well, it's April Fools day and I feel like the universe is spoofing me by my littlest girl turning FOUR MONTHS OLD. But sadly, it's true.  

I return to work on Monday, and I have to say, leaving this little sweet pea is going to be hard.  
Well, hard may be an understatement.  More like gut wrenching. For some crazy reason I thought it'd be easier the second time around, but boy was I wrong.

I was having a glass of wine with a friend yesterday and we were talking about how God presents us with challenges so we can grow.  I'm going thru alot mentally & emotionally to prepare for yet another life change, another challenge.  Starting a brand new job and leaving not one, but two babies.
So, God, I have to say; I'm good on the challenge front for awhile. 


Sadie June: By The Month

Sadie is.....Four Months Old!

Sadie Weighs .....Still sitting around that 12-13 lb mark

Sadie's Height.....??

Sadie is Wearing.....She's still fitting into SOME 0-3 month items, but mostly 3-6 month or 6 month clothes. 

Sadie is Sleeping....Eh, it's hit or miss.  Both she and Lara go to bed around 7:30-8:00 which gives Jon and I a few hours of alone time before we hit the hay.  The past few nights, Sadie wakes up around 4 and wants a bottle.  However for the most part, she sleeps until 6:30ish most nights.  

For the record, I have no idea how we ended up with two good sleepers, but I'm not complaining!

Sadie is Eating.....5-6 oz every 3 to 4 hours

Sadie Loves.....her big sis.  She smiles and giggles the loudest when she's playing with Lara.

Sadie Hates....being hungry.  But seriously, don't we all?
