Our Life Update

Hello all!

You’ve probably wondered where I went. What I’ve been up to. And wondering if I’ll ever post again!🤷

Truth is, I thought I had decided to put blogging away for good! I just haven’t had the desire to continue with blogging. However, these last few weeks got me into thinking of restarting and getting back into blogging! I am very much considering a Blog name change. But I’m NOT good with coming up with names!🤣 So if you have any ideas feel free to leave them in the comments!🙌

Ok, now for some updates!! Lexi and Owen have been so wonderful! Lexi loves her brother so much and vice versa with Owen! Owen is learning so much. He can say many words, pulls himself up on everything, is even climbing on furniture! He’s a BIG food eater! And has already weaned himself off formula! That was the biggest shocker for me because he’s 10 months! But I fully believe in letting each baby do their own thing! And he was clearly ready since he weaned himself!

I turned 30 in November last year! And I am so happy to be in a new decade for age! I know not a lot say that! I am currently studying through my GED book so I can take it and have it done! My plans is to go into nursing school and hopefully become a Pediatric Nurse! I’ve always wanted to be a nurse and I think that working with babies/children will be so much fun! I am looking forward to the challenge of being a nursing student!

I am still working my nail business (if you want to join my group click here) though it’s a little slow, I am never giving up!! Because I love it!! If you have any questions about Color Street feel free to message me on Instagram, my facebook page (Amazingly Blessed Blog) or through the contact section right here on my blog! 🙂

What are some things you’d like to see on the blog? Unboxings/reviews of my Boxycharm and Ipsy? My must have makeup items? Favorite perfume? Or maybe even some clothing inspo’s for Spring/Summer? Leave your suggestions in the comments! It’ll be so much help!

Hope you have a wonderful week,

Elizabeth

November Favorites!

Good afternoon everyone! I’m sorry I haven’t posted in over a month! We’ve been dealing with some things and I just haven’t felt like blogging until now..

I never thought that my blog would take a beauty turn but I have some amazing products I’d like to share with you all! All of my pictures have been taken on my brand new Nikon D3400 DSLR camera. This is my first ever DSLR camera and I am loving it so far! Some of my pictures I feel didn’t come out the way I would have liked them to come out, but I know practice makes perfect..

  1. Smashbox primer water and primers. I love these products. I got the travel size off Amazon since I wanted to try them out before buying the bigger bottles.. The primer water adds a nice moisture to my face and helps the primer glide on smoothly. I love both primers, one because they’re oil free and for oily skin tones they work amazing!! Highly recommend trying these out.

2. Foundations. I’m currently loving both these foundations. I use the Burts Bees one for if I don’t need full coverage or if I just want to wear makeup around the house. I use the Wet N Wild one for when I need fuller coverage or if we are planning to be out and about all day.. Both of them are amazing and I use them both pretty regularly!

3. Setting Powder. I have been loving this Banana powder from Makeup Revolution. This setting powder has zero flashback and is just the perfect shade for pale skin tones and even dark skin tones. I’ll be honest I didn’t know what the hype was over a banana powder but since getting this and trying it out, I now know it’s even more amazing than I first thought!

4. Favorite lippies. The makeup revolution lipsticks are so my favorites! They have nice pigment and stay on forever! I also am currently loving the Flower Beauty matte liquid lip. The only downside is, it bleeds into my lips but I feel a nice lip primer could help that!

5. Contour palette.. I don’t use this as a contour palette. I don’t like the way contouring looks on me. So instead I use it as a bronzer and I love it! Nice pigment and a little goes a long way! I barely dip my brush into it and get plenty enough!

6. Highlighters. If you know me you know that I am obsessed with highlighters. I have several palettes and use them all! The two I have been using the most lately are these two. The elf one is amazing for all skin tones! When I saw that Heart Defensor was collaborating with Elf I just HAD to buy it! She’s one of my favorites to watch on youtube! My newest highlighter palette is this Smashbox Spotlight Palette in Pearl. I’m loving this one so much! One of my reasonings for wanting this one was because Casey Holmes collaborated with Smashbox to bring this one out. She’s also another Youtube beauty Vlogger that I just love!!

7. Tarte Blushes. I got one of the blushes free from Sephora for my Birthday and the other one was in my Ipsy bag. I am loving these blushes! They’re nicely pigmented and have nice colors on my cheeks! I am beyond obsessed with them!

8. Setting Spray, Mascara, And eyelid primer. So I bought both the setting spray and the mascara and love both of them! My makeup doesn’t budge when I use the setting spray and it lasts so long as well! I love the volume of the mascara and highly recommend it! The eyelid primer came in my Ipsy bag and I am so glad I got it! I am obsessed with it and a little goes a long way with it! I’m starting to think a little goes a long way with ALL of Smashbox’s products..

9. Eyeshadow Palettes.. I bought these around my birthday and I am so impressed with them! All three are palettes from Makeup Revolution and they are nicely pigmented too! They blend out super easy as well! I paid $4.00 for two of them. The most expensive one was the mermaid palette and that one was $7.00!!

10. Hair care products. Lastly I want to talk all about Eva NYC. I was sent all these products from Influenster to review and I have already reviewed them on their app. But I wanted to add these to my November favorites. These three products have made my hair shiny and healthy looking! The dry shampoo doesn’t make my hair gritty feeling or just feeling nasty period. It makes my hair super soft and it always looks like I just washed my hair. The hair primer is simply amazing! The volume powder is amazing for when my hair needs some added volume. Over all I love this company and I will continue to buy their products!

Ok, So that’s the wrap of my November Favorites. I am considering on keeping this as a monthly thing! Just so everyone knows, I was NOT sponsored in any way for this post! I have bought everything unless noted in the post!! If you have tried any of these products let me know which are your favorites!!

Valentine’s Day weekend

Well it’s that time of year again! Valentine’s Day! How many of you have plans for the weekend? Valentine’s Day is actually one holiday I don’t really do a whole lot for! I always do Valentine cards but that’s pretty much all! I know that sounds horrible! But Valentine’s Day shouldn’t be the only day you buy a bunch of stuff to tell that special someone you love them! You should tell them that on a daily basis!! Anyways I’ve put together a cute Valentine’s Day weekend outfit I wanted to share! 

I’ve put together my favorite pair of jeans from Old Navy, a cute shirt I got from a boutique called Factory Connection, and since it’s really cold here in the South I put a pink long sleeve shirt under it! And couldn’t complete the outfit without my zebra stripe ballet flats! And red lip gloss just seemed perfect with this outfit!! 
Hope each of you have a wonderful weekend!! 
Xoxo, 
Elizabeth
