Blog Every Day in May: Day 9

 Day 9, Thursday: A moment in your day
(this can be just a photo or both a photo and words).

I wanted to capture a picture of something I do every single day, regardless of whether or not it's a work day or the weekend. Putting on make-up is my favorite part of the "getting ready" process and even though it goes against my childhood Tom Boy tendencies, I love playing with cosmetics. What I love most about applying my make-up each morning is that it feels like a fresh start. After thoroughly scrubbing and moisturizing my face, I have a blank canvas to highlight, contour and color any way I see fit. I can go natural and dewy on mornings I wake up feeling happy, or I can bust out the eyeliner and go a bit bold on days I’m craving a little drama. 

And the best part? If today just wasn't my day, I can wash it all off and try again tomorrow. :)


  1. I use the same BB cream. Love it!

    1. I love it, too! At first I was really nervous about how greasy it would make my skin and while I tend to get a bit more shiny than usual with it on, it makes my skin look so healthy!

  2. I wish I knew how to wear makeup. True story.

  3. Getting ready in general is tiresome to me. I wish I could just point my finger and be done like Sabrina the Teenage Witch

  4. OMG are we soul sisters or what? Champagne. Teaching. Writing. Books...where do I follow?!!!
