I have been inspired by other blogs recently (will post about blogs I love soon)! As you can tell (for the 3 loyal readers I have) I can't quite figure out what to do with this blog. I was posting a lot about life last year with some photos peppered in. I took a long hiatus this year and have just started getting back in a groove recently
I like to post about food, cooking, travel, photography, exercise, work, fashion, my puppy, DIY projects, my apartment...etc. I choose the name photos and life because I didn't want to be tied down to any one thing. I am a bit of a free spirit and I like to create and be creative for whatever moves me in the moment, however I do want this blog to be inspirational to others. I want people to read it and feel like they can be creative with everything they do. I want to provide value!
Being creative for me is all about feeling good and proud of what you are doing from your make-up in the morning, clothing you choose to wear, accessories you put on, photos you take (iPhone to SLR), attitude you exude, food you make, projects you complete. So I am hoping to share more about everything creative
I have always been into make-up and fashion (as in fashion I can afford). I'll post about fashion in another blog post (looks like I have lots of topics to cover soon), but this post is dedicated to make-up.
Ever since i was a little girl I have been exposed to make-up. It might be from my ballet/ice skating days, where at 7 years old I would perform with a full face of make-up! After my performance days were over, I still loved experimenting with make-up. Make-up is also a favorite activity for my mom and I (whenever we get together we always visit a make-up counter somewhere to get a new look). I daily choose my lip color based on my outfit. I wanted to share what I am wearing today (and will start to do this more often).
What's in my make-up bag today!
Tinted Moisturizer: Smashbox Sheer Focus Tinted Moisturizer
Blush: Arrojo Sheer Cheek Tint (Similar: Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge in Calypso Coral)

PS: what do you think of my new hair cut? I can't seem to find the perfect cut (since I cut it all off last year). I am thinking once this grows out a little bit more it may be perfect, or maybe I should just grow it out and be done with trying to find the perfect short hair.
