Sugar and Ice, and Valentine nice

Get Ready with me: 
Valentines Date edition

I am apart of L'Oreal Paris - Destination Beauty campaign and I got the assignment to make a video but with a special request: that it included my Sugar, Sean! He loves making videos with me and even took lead on directing the scenes he's in. 
Going skiing has been something we love to do now. It took one trip to Tahoe to get us hooked on this cold sport. Before Sean you could not pay me enough to do anything that could possibly cause me bodily harm, haha. I am scared of getting hurt and not being able to work or support my son. Through love and my faith - I'm getting a lot more brave!

Chocolate Glitter Glam Makeup Tutorial

Chocolate Glitter Glam 
Makeup Tutorial 


Today, I finally got out of my comfort zone and did a bold makeup tutorial! I really liked the way that it came out and I know you will too. I am anticipating negative comments about not washing my face or at least taking a makeup removing wipe and cleaned off the old makeup from earlier that day. To be honest - I am not the only one who does that! Have you ever had to turn your day makeup into something more suitable for night time events? *Raises hands, arms and legs* MEEE! I have no problem being realistic. My non sponsored videos is the best way to really be - me.

Too Faced - Shadow Insurance
LORAC - Unzipped Palette
L'Oreal Paris - Voluminous Smoldering Eyeliner "Brown"
Liquid Sugar
OCC Cosmetics - Glitter in "Coffee"

Motherhood: Challenges at School

Motherhood:  Challenges at School

I am pretty open about things that happen to me and things that effect me. My son is a beautiful blessing and I would never say I wish I could take him back for anything. He is the reason I am where I am, in this bed, in this room, in this house - I did all of this for him. BUT- It has been challenging being Jude's mommy. Most recently since starting school he has been in trouble and sent to the principles office more times than I can count for "fighting". He is a strong willed boy. 
I have changed up my ways of discipline over the years. The way I was raised was how I started and it did not work. It only made me feel bad and made him feel scared of me. The same fear I had of my mother. Don't get it twisted - I love her and she's amazing - but my style is always evolving. I am currently using TIME OUT like he does at school so that is consistent and it works...for the most part. 
So in the recent months he has become very physical at school with others. I don't care if its common - I don't want it to continue. I have been told "He's a boy, he's fine". If he came home hurt from another child at school I would raise hell. But he's the hell raiser and Im his mama - so its been a tough pill to swallow for sure. Anyone else have this problem? 
I called my aunt who has her own battles raising a strong willed child and she gave me so much information and insight...it was comforting. Almost like she gave me a tight hug over the phone. I was so lucky to have her to turn to for this kind of support. I unfortunately am guilty of making faces or senseless comments about her parenting in the past because I didn't understand. Boy do I ever, now. He's not a total terror because he can be with others and not fight but the amount of times has been so high I decided to see if anyone else had this problem. This is not an open forum to tell me how to raise him - Im asking mother to mother if there are any of you who are dealing with this and how you are remedying this situation.
