Bulky isn't necessarily a bad thing, like the bracelets I have been wearing lately - single strands in different shapes and texture but the same color scheme and materials, stacked together to create a lovely bulk.

Like this one that is gun metal colored and tied by a cute, little ribbon.

And these black and white ones tastefully put together.

How about some silver bangles piled on top of each other?

Truth is, I'm not a jewelry person at all.  But for dress up, I do like to decorate just a little.  And these bracelets, stacked and bulky, is just the perfect company for a dressy outfit.

Once in a while we all discover products that make us happy.  And I believe that as women, if we learn to love something, we should all share.  Here are some products I've discovered latedly and am loving now:

1) Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

 For a matte effect, this is the best foundation I have ever tried.  It doesn't make me oily and provides great coverage.  After a long day's wear, my face is still matte, clear and evenly covered.  An entire bottle can last about a year, which is totally worth the $33.00 I spent.

2) Dior HydrAction Moisturizer

I love the way this moisturizer made my skin feel.  It glides on smoothly and is not a bit greasy - a great product for daily use with just enough moisture to provide a youthful feel.

3) Aveeno Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser

I liked the way the foam felt and loved how clean my skin was after wash.  Like its counterpart, Aveeno's Clear Complexion Moisturizer, this face wash left my skin even-toned and clear.

4) Lo'Real Vive Pro Hydra Gloss Conditioner

A friend of mine, who is a hair dresser, introduced this product to me as "the best drug store hair product".  So I gave it a try and I completely agree with him!  It left my hair soft and glossy, just the way I like it.  For someone with an extra abundance of hair, a good conditioner is hard to find.

It's a girl!!!!  No, it's really a miracle!!!!  I never thought that I'd be lucky enough to get pregnant, especially after 3 years of trying.  But it's true, not only am I going to be a mom, I'm going to be a mom to a beautiful, little daughter in August.

Of all the things that I dream and hope for her, I hope she finds happiness and love, just like mommy and daddy did.

Thank you to all who stopped at The Girlie Blog to read this special post and allowed me to share this very special news!

I've always had a soft spot for the hue of blue.  It's the color that I learned to apply eye shadow with, when I was fourteen and had stolen mom's makeup palette.  

All grown up, though I gravitate more to other colors, I'm once in a while still drawn to blue eye shadow, especially when I want to have fun with makeup.  I guess today was one of those days.

For highlighter, I used the lightest color in Revlon's quad colors in Blue Smoke.


On the crease, I applied blue ocean by L'oreal.



For the lids, I used Revlon's Riviera Blue.  To make eyes bigger, I applied outward in.


And then I used my favorite blue liner, Shu DeVit in Victoria Falls, to rim upper and lower lines.


Curl lashes and apply a generous coat of mascara, and my blue shadow is done.

I must admit, I do a much better job now than when I was 14.  It's fun to wear colorful shadow, especially if it makes me feel like a carefree teenager again.
