Today was errand day and Emerson handled it like a champ. We visited Target, Marshalls, Starbucks, a local restaurant for lunch and then a quick stop at the market!

I also see with this picture that I need to retire the maternity tops. This top (have it in olive, black and white) was an awesome staple through all trimesters of my pregnancy and the first month postpartum since it works as an awesome nursing top. However these tops have been laundered far too often and are a little too big now in the belly. Will add them to the maternity clothes in the attic because though they are kinda faded, they are still a great go-to top. Old Navy are you reading this? Bring these tops back. You had them short sleeved and long sleeved and they are AWESOME! Consider also making them in matte jersey or a dressier (yet still easily laundered) fabric. These and your also discontinued maternity ponte pants were lifesavers for MONTHS!!!

Picture 026I finally replaced my Nars blush in Orgasm.

I have mentioned before how I feel this product is worth every dime. Well four years later I finally retired the original compact. Here's the old one (actually could have kept it longer since there was still product), and the newbie. Sometimes department store cosmetics are worth the money – this is after wearing this blush almost every day since my 30th birthday.

Pretty awesome, Nars!

  1. I just came across your blog and I’m loving your looks.

    I’ve got an affordable alternative to this Nars blush. It is just mark.’s Good Glowing blush in After Glow and it is just $6.
    You can check it out here:
    I can’t bring myself to spend tons of money on makeup and that’s why I’m so glad I’ve found these products that compare to the high-end brands.

  2. I think I bought my Nars before the birth of my second baby that started kindergarten last August…in fact, I KNOW I did. But then again I don’t wear blush that much, my face is so pink already. You know what blush I wish I could find that gave me fabulous glowing pink cheeks? That Maybelline whipped stuff that I told you about and you bought too. They still have that type of blush, but I can’t find that COLOR anymore (snarls bitterly).

  3. I really love Nars Orgasm as well! I’ve been wearing it for almost 5 years now – it’s just such a nice color on me and has fairly good staying powder on my oily skin. I think it’s definitely worth it!
