Life with Luna: This Kid


Hello fellow freaks and geeks! Good news: I’m alive! My schedule has drastically changed, causing me to not have a lot of time to post frequently, but fear not! I will still have a post a week – you can’t get rid of me that easy. ;)


With that said, I now appreciate my weekends even more. I try my best not to schedule too many extra-curriculars so that I can spend them with the people that matter the most: my little family. Luna has become increasingly difficult to dine with (what do you mean I can’t grab everything on the table and toss it all over the place?), and just wants to run, run…run every time we are in a public space (and don’t try to hold her hand…), but we still find the special moments within the maddening ones. You have to, amirite?

A Very Potter Mother’s Day with TeeFury & JordanDene {COUPON CODE INCLUDED}


Last year was my first Mother’s Day as a mommy, even though little Luna was still in my belly. It was the day we revealed the gender to my close family and I remember it being such a special day. This year, I actually have a little one to hold and love and call my own. What a difference a year makes! I’ve learned so much since then,¬†about so many things – one of which is leggings are a mom’s best friend.

I love these TeeFury leggings because they leave me feeling comfy and geek chic. Although the Potter emoji’s are my favorites, they have a whole lot to choose from so check them out! Not one to leave my little munchkin out of the geek fashion game, Luna is rocking her best Jordan Dene. If you want the perfect comfy geek wear for your little fangirls or boys, definitely look into her Younglings collection!

I’ve Been Missing

Hi lovely readers!

I don’t want you to think that I’ve abandoned you all. It’s just the holidays, so both my professional and personal life are flaring up at the same time, which makes it difficult to stay on track with extracurriculars (I’m sorry, that means you blog). But I’ll be posting regularly soon enough, and even better, I will have a new project to share with you all at the start of the new year (spoiler alert: squee!). I’m also hosting 2 fun themed parties over the next few weeks, so I can’t wait to share those with you as well.

2014 is looking so bright, I almost can’t stand to look!

Holiday Eye Makeup

Oh hai, December!!!

Although a lot of people think red lips as the main staple for holiday season makeup, I think it is equal parts smokey eye. Now, I’m no makeup artist, so I appreciated that the Studio Gear Cosmetics Holiday Smokey Eye Palette comes with play-by-play instructions on how to use the shadows to achieve the perfect look. And it’s your lucky day because I’m going to share them with you!

The first step is to use a primer on your lids. I don’t have primer (I should probably put that on my shopping list), so I just used my foundation on my lids as substitution. Next was layering their ice white shadow, Frost, on your eyelids to set. Then their charcoal shadow is to be applied lightly from crease to lash line.

Britelites Color

Confession: I really don’t know why I chopped off my hair. Not only because I miss the length, but also because I basically had a killer ombre that had barely faded. Ever since then, I have missed my fun locks more than anything, so when I stumbled on Britelites, I knew I had to give it a go! It’s temporary hair color that you simply just roll onto your hair. You may think this sounds like hair chalk, but the difference is that it is vibrant (even on dark hair) and lasts!

I had a blast playing with all the colors (for this post, I used the red, blue & purple), and loved the results! Warning: it can get messy, but it easily washes off with soap and water. And definitely do not be afraid to use multiple shades – that’s what really creates bright and bold hues. I personally can’t wait to give it another go for this week’s Swim Week events!

Want some even better news? I have a coupon code to share with all of you! Type in “melificent” at checkout to receive 10% off your Britelites purchase!!! Hope this helps you all have an even more colorful and fun summer.
