A couple of beauty-related updates:
- I no longer wear makeup. I actually don't have time (truthfully, I probably do have time to put it on but I definitely don't have time to take it off) and I personally feel like its a barrier between me and Jellybean when I want to cuddle and kiss her.
- My skincare routine is just cleansing, toning, and moisturizing.
- I'm not sure what to do with my makeup collection, but saving them for Jellybean to play with is on the list.
Anyways, on to the Empties!

Jellybean got her little hands on this one and finished it for me. I was liking this for a while. It went on a little glimmery but would tone down after a few minutes. It became a "my lips but better" deal. I felt it was a little thick to put on, but once it was on it hydrated and stayed on.

I thought I had finished it 2 years ago and then realized I could finish even more, so I picked it up and finished it all. I liked this one a lot primarily because I was immensely pleased with the brand and how easily it glided on my lips. But I think that the color was a little too bright for my skin tone and it didn't last long on my lips. It was hydrating but it either faded or dried out a little too quickly for my liking.

Love this stuff as part of a simplified skincare. My husband threw the empty container away before I could get a picture so the above is the toner I'm currently using. I sometimes like using fancier toners but when I simplify, I really mean it. This is straight out witch hazel and nothing else.
As of the date of this posting, Jellybean is 30.5 inches tall and 20.8 lbs. She's such a champ! She tolerates her boring days when I drag her to do stuff that I have to do and she doesn't complain much about the boredom. She still only has 8 teeth, 4 on the top and 4 on the bottom. She can say a few words when she mimics us, is a pretty good walker and runner, is learning to twirl and walk backwards. When she shrieks she can probably shatter glass, so I'm thinking about having her start singing lessons with one of her aunties in a few years.
I'm still trying to find some balance (not quite there yet) between working, being a mom, being a wife, and finding time for myself. I do want to post more but thank you for being patient with me.
Okay, that's it for now! Have a great day/week/month!
