Last night Mike and I had a lot of fun at his holiday work party, was a very nice night with good food and great people. Mike really is lucky to work at such a great firm, everyone is so nice and it definitely helps for me since I can be shy and nervous. I have been to enough parties with his job now, so I know mostly everyone except for some new hires.
I didn’t take pics, since that is not a place to do it. We did however cut it an hour short since this pregnant momma was tired and no wine means mild night, haha!
Breakfast this morning was a classic favorite of mine, an oatmeal pancake!
So easy to make and so many ways to create different combos with it.
Oatmeal Raspberry Pancake
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup egg whites
Mix all those ingredients in a bowl, pour onto a skillet and cook it up!
Topped with mrm vanilla protein powder mixed with almond milk to thin, melted peanut butter, and raspberries.
Hit the spot
Yesterday I did make it to Sephora! I tried to got Friday, but got busy with other things and never made it. All the gift cards I basically got for christmas were sephora, which was really nice because for once I could spend a little money on makeup.
I was really needing some oil for my terribly dry skin and I also got a couple other things that I typically don’t spend the dough on, but all my gift cards covered the stuff, and I have a little more money left on one too!
1. Laura Mercier Mineral Pressed Powder – I have been using a neutrogena powder which is good, but I tried this on at the store and loved it! Laura Mercier has a great makeup line, this powder is great and gives me the full coverage I need since I don’t wear foundation hardly ever.
2. Josie Maran Organic Argan Oil- Everyone has been telling me that argan oil will help my dry skin, so I searched online at sephora and looked at reviews as well for a few of them. This oil got great reviews so I went with it. I used it last night for the first time and it does feel awesome on my skin, I will let you guys know if I continue to like it and if it helps!
3. Fresh Soy Face Cleanser- I used to use this stuff long ago, loved it very much but my skin was not meant for it after I needed something more helpful for my acne that I had bad. Since I am older and my skin is much better, I decided to get this again, it works great with the clarasonic, which I love. A very light and gentle cleanser that removes dirt and makeup very well! Great for sensitive skin too, I just bought a little tube to be safe and if it works well, I will buy another for sure.
4. Nars Dolce Vita Lip Gloss – A fabulous color that looks great on any skin tone and the gloss does not get gooey and sticky like some do! I have this color in the nars lipstick too and love it. I decided to get the gloss, I wore it with a mauve lip liner last night and it looked great!
I really do love makeup, beauty, and all that comes with that! I am such a girly girl! I seriously wish I would win a shopping spree at sephora, that would be a store I would pick for one
I love sharing what makeup or beauty products I like, you never know if you try something out and fall in love with it too. I go on so many beauty blogs, some things I have bought and tried from seeing something and loved it! Nars orgasm blush for example is one I saw long ago on a beauty blog, my favorite blush ever!
