a blush-happy fotd & some good "mews" ;)

FACE: MAC Face + Body foundation (regretting the decision to pull this out again, judging by the huge pimple I have on my jawline now!), MAC MSF Natural, Dior Aurora bronzer, MAC Instant Chic blush, MAC Light Flush MSF

EYES: MUFE Aqua Cream #13, Buxom Stay-There e/s in Mutt, the dark shade from the NARS Dogon e/s duo, Sephora Jumbo Liner in Beige, Revlon Grow Luscious Lash Liner in Emerald (too bad you can't see it because my eyes are hooded!), MAC Lingering brow pencil, Fairy Drops Scandal Queen mascara, Clinique Bottom Lash mascara

*I forgot to use my YSL Touche Eclat under my eyes this day - I can definitely tell the difference compared to days when I do wear it! That stuff works miracles, I tell ya.

LIPS: I first applied CoverGirl Lip Perfection lipstick in Fairytale, wiped it off (it leaves a nice stain behind), then applied Topshop Nevada lipstick on top

nails are Revlon Just Tinted polish in Dawn

While I'm here I also wanted to share some news with you all that I'm super excited about - in mid-June I'm going to be the proud mama of two very sweet kitties! I haven't had Sparky as of about 3 months ago (I looooved that doggy, but he belonged to my ex, and I just didn't feel right about sharing him anymore - it was hard to let go!). Anyways, I've really been missing the joy that having a pet brings, so when my co-worker told me about a litter of kittens her boyfriend found, I told her I was definitely interested! She's been taking care of them for the past two weeks, giving them medicine, eye drops, etc. I got a chance to visit them this past Sunday, and I fell so in love! I'm going to be taking two of them, an orange one and a black one. I think I'm going to name them Sammy (orange) and Oliver (black), but I'm not sure yet! 

Here are a few (crappy!) pics I took of them during my visit:

mine on the left, w/one of his cute brothers (they're all boys, by the way!)

my little guy is on the left! <3

I'm an all-around animal lover, and I can't wait for these babies to come home! In the meantime, I better stock up on Allegra and Alaway! ;)

Hope you're all having a great week!

<3 Jess

  15. You are gorgeous and the kitties are precious! Awwww!!!

  16. congrats on being a kitty owner. how are the boys doing? must post an update on them and how r u alleriges? hope it is improving. i'm cat allergic too but own my little girl and wouldnever think of giving her up. there are some ways to help decrease kitty allergies i.e. good quality cat food, omega 6 fish oil.....which helped me immensely.

  17. Hi Anonymous! I've been taking Allegra and it's been working pretty well for me. I also use Alaway eye drops. I had cats growing up, too, so I know that the longer I have them, the more I'll adapt and the allergy symptoms will dissipate - I'm getting there! But I wouldn't give them up for anything - they're my babies!
