Baby Steps

Baby Steps. Those are usually the words that I am silently whispering to myself when I'm reminded that fear takes time to overcome.  I'm sure this will sound silly but showing off my arms scares me. What scares me exactly? Well maybe it's the constant thought that I'll be judged.  Will people take note of my very much visible stretchmarks? or will they gawk at my jiggly arm fat?  I don't know but what I do know is I was never crazy about how I looked in anything sleeveless and had banished myself from wearing it. Yes even in the hottest of temperatures sleeveless was off limits for me.  It's something that I have carried from my younger years into my adult life.  As I've gotten older  (and by older I mean maybe a year or two ago.  Hey I said baby steps.) I've slowly entertained the idea of going sleeveless.  To some it may not seem like such a big deal and that some would be right but I'm taking steps into a space where I'm kinda ok with this sleeveless thing and that makes me smile.  I am learning and I am growing. Gotta love those baby steps.

Makeup Files: NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer

Remember way back in January when I promised you guys that I would work on sprucing up my plain jane makeup routine? Sure you do. (If not jog your memory here) Well about that. While I haven't exactly been beating my face for the Gods, I am trying my best to update my makeup bag arsenal.  About a month ago I picked up a new concealer.  This new concealer was a  purchase that was  long overdue.   I'm quite sure the last one that I purchased needed to be chucked ages ago.

I had been in search of a concealer that was easy to apply, had great coverage and offered a brightening effect.  I took my search to Sephora and the sales woman assisted me with applying at least two other concealers before we landed on the NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer.  You know that feeling you get when your favorite team hits the game winning shot ? Well that's pretty much what I felt like after viewing myself in the mirror.  It was a win!  Don't believe me, check out my results below.
