My favorite Summer Products!

Favorite Facial Product for Summer: Murad's Exfoliating Pomegranate Mask!

I have now had two facials with this mask, and I love the way my skin feels afterwards. My skin feels so smooth, and it brightens the tone of my skin. They come in a set of six for $22.50

Favorite self tanner: Duwop's Revelotion. I like this because it gives a great color, and its easy to apply. The best thing is, it washes off at night. It stays on well, but I like that it can wash off in case you mess up! :)

Favorite new Sunscreen: Colorscience and Bare Escentual's Mineral Sunscreen

How easy is it to put your sunscreen on with a brush? Both of these are a mineral sunscreen loose powder that dispenses through the brush with spf 5o and spf 30. They have been quite popular at glo lately! ($28)

Favorite Summer Fragrance: Fresh's "Citron de Vigne" or any of their citrus, lemon scents.($75) They also come in shower gels, lotions, and soaps.

New favorite lip color: Laura Mercier's Bon Bon (Barbie Pink) ($22)

Favorite Summer Nail Polish: Essie's "Cute as a button" ($8)

Those are some of the things I love for the summer! The only update on me and the baby is that everything is going well! I have officially entered my second trimester, and already can tell a big difference with my energy level. I'm starting to get a little bump and I'm sure throughout the next month or two, I will start to see quite a bit more. I will post ultrasound pictures and "bump" pictures soon. Ultrasound pictures will definitely be first!! :)

I'm Pregnant!

I am officially 10 weeks pregnant and loving every minute of it. I haven't had any horrible symptoms to speak about, so I feel very blessed for this. This baby as been prayed for, for a long time and Joseph and I are SO excited to meet him/her in about 6 months. December 26th to be exact. Poor Kid!! I'm going to need some ideas on how to make their birthday special. I won't stop giving some makeup tips/trends, but I'll definitely give you a baby update every once in a while.

We conceived this baby via petri dish, or "invitro fertilization". :) I love reading other blogs about their journey through that process, so maybe I'll give a quick description one day about it all. It was definitely worth every stick and prick, and we feel very blessed! Thank you to those who have been praying for us! We are continuing to pray for a healthy baby.
