Pudding Camera + A Hawk

This morning, while husband was drinking his coffee and looking out the kitchen window, he saw a hawk as it perched on the neighbor’s satellite dish.  He yelled for the family to come look so I grabbed the camera and ran toward the kitchen.

The hawk stayed there for about 2 hours!  Instead of taking Teddy out back to potty, we took her to the front.  We didn’t want the hawk to take off with her, even on a leash.

Pudding Camera Review

Pudding Camera App for Android is my newest love.  I’ve always liked that dreamy glowy look and this app is amazing at creating it.  Below are some examples.  I haven’t used all the different cameras and filters.

Urban Decay, NYX, Ivanka Trump, AND Teddy

I’m not in any urgent need for more makeup but ended up buying more than I’ll ever wear anyway when I dropped by Ulta to only buy shampoo and conditioner.  Makeup is my weakness.  I should know better than to drop by Ulta with only my 5-year-old who actually helped me pick out the Glinda pallette by Urban Decay (+ I think Michelle Williams is so beautiful and talented).  She said, “Here, get this one.  You have to get it!”  As her mom, I should be saying, “No.” but I easily, said, “Okay,” as if we were best friends shopping.

I haven’t used this palette yet.  I carry the lipstick pencil in my purse for touch-ups.  The NYX eyeshadow and lipstick palette (below) is very nice.  I’ve used it and I think it’ll work great when the family goes on our cruise later this year.  This is the palette I’ll be bringing along.

My Valentine’s Day gift from husband: Ivanka Trump Perfume.  It arrived a few days later.  Husband had to special order it because it wasn’t at Macy’s yet.

Originally, I didn’t want anything but became obsessive with this perfume when I first sniffed a sample in a beauty magazine.  I should stay away from those magazines too.  This perfume is floraly which I wasn’t expecting from Ivanka but I still love it.

Note:  Just thought I’d add that in the magazine sample, it wasn’t as floral.

Teddy

There will be a time when she won’t be able to do this.  It’s too adorable to not capture. 🙂

This Morning

This morning, husband and I surprised the girls each with a stuffed animal, a chocolate heart, and a card.  They loved it as usual.

Life of Pi

“I suppose in the end, the whole of life becomes an act of letting go, but what always hurts the most is not taking a moment to say good-bye.” ~Pi Patel

The family went to see Life of Pi over the weekend.  I heard great reviews about this movie so my hopes were already up.  It was a very good movie.  The cinematography was excellent.  Perfect.  The sea scenes were captured so breathtakingly that I was truly in awe.  I especially loved the scene during nighttime when the humpback whale dived up through the jellyfish lit sea.

Wonder Why She’s So Picky

Kylie got a pretty dress today but she didn’t want to try it on (it was mail delivered).

“Nah.  I don’t like it.”  She said initially but changed her mind when I held the dress out at eye level to her.

She is so picky with clothes that sometimes I just want to give her money to buy her own clothes.  She’s only 5 so that’s not going to happen anytime soon.  It makes shopping difficult but I’m not complaining.  Really.  I kind of enjoy these moments.

Every time I take her photos.  She always has to make a funny face.  This time, it was her beast face.  She made a few faces with her tongue sticking out too but I have so many of those I’m actually kind of tired of them.
