what I wore thursday

dress: target, earrings: online boutique, ring: american eagle, watch: nordstroms

 Life has been lived behind the scenes lately. Some of you may have noticed that I haven't posted anything in like two weeks and there are many reasons for that.

One reason is that I've been sick with respiratory issues and I am on day three of taking a steroid to help open up my lungs. It's been a long week but to give myself a motivational kick, I got dressed in a new dress from Target #targetforthewin! and put makeup on AND my hair cooperated today! Yay! I am on a roll.

My steam is running low though and I'm feeling tired. I am just taking it one day at a time right now because I do not want to take a vacation to the hospital.

It's amazing how looking good on the outside can affect how you feel on the inside! It helps. it really does.

So, for you my friends, I bring "what I wore thursday" and how I did my makeup today.

eye makeup details:

L'oreal true match crayon concealer in fair/light w1-2-3 (used under and in inner corner of my eyes)
Arbonne eyeshadow in suede (all over lid)
MAC eyeshadow in orange (crease of lid blended inward)
Sonia Kashuk enhance eye color in aubergine (purchased years ago) (in very crease)
Stila all day waterproof liquid eyeliner in intense black
makeup forever aqua eyes eyeliner pencil in black
L'oreal lash out butterfly waterproof mascara in blackest black

I should also inform you that I finished reading "The Fault in Our Stars" by John Greene, last night. What a sweet ending. I thoroughly liked the book. It was an easy read, it is classified as YA (young adult) afterall, but I felt like I was part of the conversation, as if I was right there with Hazel and Gus. I am starting a new read tonight, "the book thief" and I can't wait!

and Happy Mother's Day weekend! I just had to take a picture with my nana today! :) look at her style. she's so cute. ThoSe are her sunglasses!

LOVING the outfit!! I'm glad you liked the fault in our stars. My sister told me she hated it and that made me not want to read it. But hey! IF I came across someone that liked it, maybe I should hop on the bandwagon!

I hope you get feeling better.Sorry about your respiratory problems. I'll keep you in my prayers. :)
