CoverGirl Oh Sugar Vitamin Infused Lip Balm in “Cupcake”
011010009

CoverGirl has expanded their line of lip products to include tinted lip balm infused with grapeseed oil, avocado butter, and vitamin C & E. Following in the footsteps of their drugstore cousin, Maybelline (and the popular Baby Lips Tinted Balms) the release of this product was very exciting for me. I wasn’t a big fan of the Maybelline baby lips because mostly it made me feel like I was using the same products I did when I was in junior high school. But CoverGirl’s balms are lip care for the big girls!

Category: 2

Pros:

  • extremely moisturizing
  • is light and comfortable
  • nourishing and healing

Cons:

  • color pay off not great
  • sweet but unpleasant taste

Meadow’s Tip:

  • I lightly swipe this color over a matte lipstick to add a much needed bit of moisture without compromising the matte finish.Verdict: 4/5
    Would purchase again

April is Heartworm Awareness Month

I know my usual posts are quick and easy, but I’d like to take this opportunity and post the long but important story of Milo’s journey  with heartworm.

We adopted Milo from a shelter that rescued dogs from other shelters (often kill shelters). We fell in love with his tiny face when we first spotted him on Petfinder.com. Needless to say, as soon as we got the chance to hold him in our arms, it was love at first sight. We took him home the same day.

We didn’t know much about Milo. His given name was Barnum (he was rescued along with a sibling, Bailey) and he came from North Carolina. He was neutered, and even has a small green tattoo to prove this (in case you see ghost testicles). He had been suffering from tapeworms when we first got him, but a quick visit to our local vet cleared it up and he was as good as new. We kept up his shots and when Faithful Friends Animal Hospital opened up within walking distance of our house, we decided to take him there for his annual check-up.

Homemade Lox (salmon)

 

031

Blogged while watching Grease Live! on Fox.

During a recent visit with my BFF (my mom, Sophia) I was treated to homemade (yes, homemade) lox. I was blown away by how delicious it was! I was even more blown away when she told me the 17 seconds she spent making it! So, I immediately went out and bought my own fillets and made it right at home. And it was just as delicious!

My Favorite Anastasia Lip Combo

079080

Anastasia Beverly Hills in quickly gaining a reputation as being more than just eyebrows. The liquid lipsticks and lip glosses have an avid following on Instagram. What pushes this brand to the top is the exceptional quality of its products that fulfill the promise of long-lasting and moisturizing wear.

I (went a little crazy) and bought a couple of liquid lipsticks and an entire set of glosses. I purchased the lipstick at Macy’s and the Lustrous Lip Gloss Set online.

Everyday Glam look

051

I work in a corporate setting, so going crazy with my make up is strictly out of the question. Finding ways to express myself through makeup becomes a bit more challenging. I want to look professional and be taken seriously, but makeup is my oxygen. I take pride in my skills and want to show them off (and I often get great compliments for them).

This is a look I recently wore to work. I took these pictures after I came home (and following a bit of touch ups as my work day is usually 10 hours).

Sunday Funday Cooking:Couscous Crabcakes with Lite Slaw

009

Sundays are cooking days for me. If I don’t have anything else planned, I take the day to food shop and meal plan for the rest of the week. This is essential for healthy living because it eliminates any opportunities for weak moments. If I get home absolutely ravenous, there is always something available in the fridge. It’s always healthy, it’s already prepared, and it is delicious!

This Sunday was no exceptions. On average, I make about 7 dishes. Some turn out better than others and I wanted to share them with you.

Among what I made this week was

  • couscous crab cakes with a lite Cole Slaw,
  • turkey ham stuffed chicken roulettes with sauteed mushrooms and onions
  • succotash, and
  • RPM fruit punch.
