What’s Your Passion?

Everyone has one, or two, or three, or more things in their life that they just adore doing. It goes beyond just a past time, it is that passion that defines you. That love that captures your heart regardless of how old you get.

I have so many but the one passion that has stood the test of time for me is photography. I love taking pictures of people when they least expect it.  The candid photos that capture the very essence of that moment.  And of course, my favorite shots are those of my family.  Here are some of my favorites:

I also like to get a little artsy now and then….;-)

For every “perfect” picture that I take, I have about 30 that don’t turn out the way I wanted them to. Yet, every time I run out the door, I make sure I have my camera in tow because you just never know if today may be the day you get that perfect picture. 

Now it’s your turn. What is your passion?

CoverGirl Quad Review

The CoverGirl Drama Eyes quad is dramatic for sure but don’t be intimidated. The quad is a combination of a shimmery white, silver, soft black, and shimmery burgundy.

The colours look so dark, I was a little worried I would end up with racoon eyes but after swatching you can see that they aren’t that pigmented at all.

 

These colours combine to make a beautiful smokey eye. I paired them with Wet n’ Wild Black liquid eyeliner, Sumptuous Extreme Black mascara from Estee Lauder, and fake lashes (they were fun!).

And then of course, I decided to play with the camera a little and create more dramatic shots.

I think this is a great quad and you can definitely go a lot darker with the colours if you wanted. Pair this with nude lip and you’ll definitely be turning heads.

What do you think? Is this a look you would try? What would you do different?

Stay tuned for Tone It Up Tuesdays and our first roll call to see how everyone is doing. 😀


Christmas Pictures

After my little man got out of the tub and into his snowman pj’s I couldn’t resist snapping a couple of pictures and he had no problem posing for them either. 😉

Then came a lot of prodding and begging; I finally caved and switched places with JBear. With the camera set up on the tripod, I showed him which button to push and was amazed when I saw the picture he took of me.  I didn’t just like it….I LOVED IT!!

Any of you snapping some festive photos?
