To say that I'm loving the thicker eyebrow look would be an understatement.  There's just something about it that I think frames the eyes so well.  Unfortunately, between genetics and chemo (though thankfully they are growing back in), my eyebrows don't fit the look too well.

Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to fill in and give yourself that beautiful thick eyebrow look.  I am in love with the eyebrow makeup from Anastasia Beverly Hills.  What I do is a three step process (blush brushing), but it really doesn't take too long.

First I prime with the Brow Primer.

 Next, I use this great brush and the Brow Powder Duo to outline my brows and then fill in.

I do a final fill in with the Brow Wiz.

Some tricks that I learned at Sephora, once you outline the bottom on your brows, use the mascara wand looking side of the brush to brush your eyebrows down and then outline the top.  Once you've outlined the top, brush them back up and then fill.

Snow Day

Friday we were off of work (we always get the Friday of spring break off) and woke to a snowy world.  The interesting part, was that it had been so warm leading up to the snow, that the sidewalk and driveway looked as though someone had cleared them for us.  It was almost as if we had a shovel fairy :)

Enjoy the pictures

Transitional Dresses

Rue 21 is one of my favorite stores to shop for trendier pieces as reasonable prices.  The other day, I received an email from them that they were having a Buy 1 Get 1 Free sale on their dresses (unfortunately, it was for that day only).  I knew that I wanted to pick up a couple of dresses that would work well not only in the summer, but also now.

This first dress is perfect, paired with black tights, for a day like today where the temperatures are only going to be in the 50's.  This is actually how I am wearing it today.  You could also pair it with a pair of either tall or over the knee boots.

This second dress will be perfect for cooler days with some black tights or tall boots.  All you would need is a cardigan to thrown on over top.
