This past weekend we took a little trip and indulged in some apple picking. Of course we can’t go anywhere without me playing the paparazzi and snapping several pics. Here are a select few for your viewing enjoyment. 😉
The view was so pretty.
When we got home, playtime was over and JBear took helping his Uncle Mike very seriously. 😉
All in all it was a beautiful weekend. And the apples….DELISH!!!!
Have any of you ventured out and enduldeged in some apple picking of your own?
Somebody’s watching me….
Before I get to the Friday funnies, I wanted to give you all a sneak peek into some of the happenings going on around the OLinA household.
It felt like it went from snow to summer in one day, but I am not complaining. 🙂 Our beautiful flowering pear trees our filled with blooms….
and honey bees….
Every year, we plant a garden at my mom’s in Canada and this year we decided to also planting one in New York. I did the hard part, go out and buy the seeds. My hubby got the fun part and got to plant them in little cups, old egg cartons, basically anything we could recycle. Disclaimer: my husband may disagree on which part was fun and which was hard. 😉
Next we did some yard work…
which led to some photo ops…
which led to some more impromptu yard restructuring….
Oh yeah – we have big plans. This summer will be jam-packed with happenings North and South of the border so definitely stay tuned. 🙂
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. 😀
