    Lipstick is one of those beauty products I didn’t start wearing until well into my twenties.  I experimented with lip gloss all through high school and college, but I never dared break into the world of color.  And then a light just sort of went on, and I tried a bright cherry red.  I couldn’t believe all of the fun I had been missing out on.  Lipstick is beautiful, dramatic, elegant, classic, vintage, couture, and all at the same time.  If you haven’t tried lipstick, or if you haven’t found the right lipstick, you might not be considering lipstick on your wedding day, but you may just want to re-think that beauty strategy.  Lipstick is the perfect wedding day beauty accessory.  My own makeup artist, a close family friend, talked me into a soft shimmery pink lipstick on my own wedding day, but now that I’ve really learned to embrace the bolder pigments, I secretly wish I had gone with a red, coral, or berry.

    When hunting for that perfect wedding lipstick, consult a professional!  Make a day out of hitting up your favorite makeup counters or visiting your makeup artist with friends, prior to the big day.  Finding a shade that is “you” is key.  Glossy lipsticks have less staying power though lighter colors, especially those with some shimmer, will make your lips appear fuller, while matte and creme formulas will last a lot longer.  Pair your shade with a good lip liner (this will keep the color from running), and don’t be afraid to ask for help.

    •  We have this hat, passed down to Charlie from my friend's little boy, then passed down to Calvin. It's just a simple grey hat but it is so so cute and is the thing that my boys wear the most in the toddler years. It holds so much sentimental value for me. Well yesterday I took the babies on a walk and somewhere along the way Calvin chucked it. He also tossed his shoes but I saw those right away. It wasn't until we stopped for lunch that I realized the hat was gone. I was so sad about it that I retraced our steps to see if I could find it. No luck. I'm pretty sure he tossed it in Goodwill while I was digging for stuff for our Halloween costumes. Which means it is gone, because when you lose something in Goodwill it is seriously like looking for a needle in a haystack. I've been sick about it ever since, which I know is silly. It's just a hat, after all. But it's one of those things that I was planning to pass to Quincy and then save forever and when I was old and grey I would dig it out of the attic and take a walk down memory lane. You moms know what I'm talking about. But it's gone and all I have are photos and the memories. Luckily Calvin had started putting it on Quincy's head and last week I snapped this picture. Charlie and Calvin both kept saying "cuuuuuuute" ❤️ I hope it makes its way onto another little boy's head someday #thefredrickboys #calvinandquincy #brudders #thebrotherhoodofthegreytoddlerhat  You've got a few hours left to enter to win your choice of sling from @mywildbird - head to my blog to enter now!
