VALENTINES DAY: ROMANTIC MAKEUP LOOK

For this week's makeup look I wanted to do something that was out my comfort zone, something I wouldn't normally wear. So I went with a purple smokey eyeshadow with mascara on my bottom lashes.

L'Oreal La Palette in Nude 2: I love love love this palette! I'm usually one to wear more neutral colours, but I love that this palette has a few rosier and purple shadows. They also blend beautifully.

Maybelline Great Lash Real Impact mascara: I'm really not a fan of this mascara when it comes to using it for my upper lashes, but since it's a dryer formula it works perfect for my lower lashes. Applies a nice thin coat which doesn't smudge during the day. 

L'Oreal True Match Lumi highlighter:  This highlighter is a tad glittery, but I love the glow it gives.

Rimmel Lasting Finish blush in Pink Rose:  This blush is super pretty! I find that some pink blushes can be a little too pigmented, but this one just has enough pigment to add some colour to your cheeks.

Revlon Balm stain in honey: If you're looking for a great every day lip colour then this one is perfect. I absolutely love this lip stain. It starts off with a glossy finish but throughout the day it fades and leaves a really nice deep pink stain on the lips. 
I hope you all have a great Friday! Don't forget to come back next week for my last Valentines makeup look.

CALVIN: 10 MONTHS

Age: 10 months. I seriously can not believe he is going to be a year in a couple months! Where has the time gone??!!

Clothing: 12-18 months

Teeth: 2 bottom, and 1 top

Baby Development: (1) I know I said this last month, but crawling is so, so, so close! He can move backwards super well, and is able to get onto his knees really well. (2) We no longer use his bath support so he now just sits in the tub and plays with his bath toys. He loves to splash and kick his legs  and since the bath is so slippery he's able to move around and spin. It's super entertaining. (3) He sometimes claps when we say "yay". But only sometimes. He also shakes his head when we say "shake, shake, shake".

Likes: (1) Sweet potatoes (2) He loves when we change the lyrics from "Baby Beluga" to "Calvin Baronins". He dances and laughs every time we sing. He also likes "Do you know the muffin man" and "Row, row, row your boat". (3) My parents got him some Ikea wooden building blocks and he can not get enough of them! Everyday, all day he sits on the floor bitting and playing with them. He loves destroying towers that I make, and stealing the blocks that I am playing with. Apparently the blocks I play with are so much more fun, than the ones he already has ;)

Other: The past couple of days I've been planning his birthday theme, decorations and activities. I'm getting really excited, but also a little sad since he is growing SO fast!!

OLD NAVY PICKS: BOYS

Can I just say that Old Navy has been killing it recently! Seriously everything in the store is completely spot on! Right now they have a crazy amazing sale for their kid, toddler and baby section. Everything is 40% off, and by everything they mean everything! The sale ends on Wednesday, so run don't walk people! Calvin is still growing pretty fast so we needed to stock up on some 18-24 month clothing. Luckily they just released their spring line so I was able to pick up some pieces that will be able to transition into summer too. Buying bright colours and tees has got me pinning for spring!
