100 Years of Beauty in 1 Minute

Hello Loves,

I just found this on my facebook page and I just HAD to share. I love it. I love the styles. Especially the one from 1910. When I was little I used to beg my mom for a dress from that era. years Halloween idea perhaps?

My Everyday Face - Weekend Edition

Hello Loves,

I can't believe it's December and almost the end of 2014. That seems crazy to me. My family has had a very busy 2014 and I look forward to it continuing into 2015.

We're just gearing up for Christmas and between work and family I just haven't found the time to finish up the 5 or so blog posts that I have started. I want them to be perfect and to be something I would enjoy reading. With that said, they will never be up if I am waiting for them to be perfect. lol I think one of my goals for 2015 will be centered around this blog and getting posts up (perfect and otherwise).

I'm going to start by keeping it really simple and sharing a "what's on my face" type post from this past weekend. I kept it very simple but I was pleased with how it turned out. I was just running errands with my toddler so I just concentrated on covering a few blemishes, defining my eyes and using the JCat Wonder Lip Paint that I received in my November Ipsy Bag.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

I'm back!!

Hello Loves,

I am so sorry I've been MIA for so long. When I started my blog I was so excited about it and then I got a little discouraged after I received some negative comments from my extended family. Well, I have my blogging confidence back and will resume shortly with loads of new posts.

Thanks for your patience,

My Very First Blog Post

Hello World!

My name is Samantha and I live in Northern Ontario, Canada. I am a mother to 2 wonderful little boys and lucky enough to be engaged to my soul mate. Here is me and my gorgeous family near Kingston, Ontario:

 I work as a receptionist/administrative support at the best place to work in Canada (No, really we actually won awards for this!) and I just came back after taking a year off following the birth of my youngest son.

I have a passion for DIY just about anything and when I don’t pass out at 9:00 p.m. or spend time with my boys I am usually doing something crafty like these jewelry holders:

I have a serious shoe,accessory, make-up and clothing addiction. As of this moment I am currently dreaming of wearing these shoes as soon as the temperature permits. I got these for my birthday last summer and didn't get a chance to wear them yet:

I've been toying with the idea of writing a blog for a few years now. I read a lot of them (from lifestyle to beauty and fashion blogs) and finally decided to take the jump and create my own space. I want to write about anything and everything that pops into my head. I will try and post everyday if possible and I can promise you it will always be different. I am really excited about having an outlet for everything that I have an opinion on and encourage people to follow my blog and comment on my posts. 

Well that's all for now...
