my daily makeup..!

i spent christmas in nevada/utah this year... with my all of my sisters for a short holiday getaway and to celebrate 2 of their birthdays. it was while i was packing for the trip, forced to only bring what was really neccessary, that brings me to today's post: for someone who doesn't think she wears much makeup on a daily basis, i sure realized i kinda do!

throughout high school and into my college years, i was a complete minimalist when it came to cosmetics. mascara, eyeliner and chapstick - blush, for those special occasions - and i was good to go! heck, i didn't even know there was a difference between body lotion and face moisturizer! not to mention - completely oblivious to items such as - primers, highlighters and translucent powders!

fast forward several years... and although i still achieve the same basic look as i did then... i've realized it def takes a lot more product to get there now, smh. why is that..? old age, i tell ya.

...did i mention i put up my christmas tree? i actually did this the day after thanksgiving, as a distraction to keep me from munching on all the delicious leftovers! haha. that, and the fact that christmas lights never cease to lift my spirits and make me smile regardless of the mood i'm in, so i jumped at the earliest opportunity i could put it up without judgement, lols. love, love, love! <3

'tis the season to be jolly, may your holiday be merry and bright!
