I Do Photography!!

So I do Photography but I haven't done anything specific in a while for specific reasons. I have been so busy with gigs the last few weeks and more are popping up now. I have done a maternity and senior photos next up is family. I hope a fashion shoot comes up .. I missed  a themed one a few weeks ago since we all had been sick :( .check out my favorite of my little sister!! also I have another blog.. it's not done at all but you can take a look as I am working on the re-branding @clovesandbuttonsphotography


Pure Glow Valentia's Moisturizer


I have been using some other great products by Valentia's and I love them. Once I got the chance to try this Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer I got really excited. I have always used the ponds daily moisturizer and felt like my skin was very greasy. I got this pretty fast and it didn't take long to be shipped to me. I really expected a greasy and sunscreen smell to this. I was really surprised by both . I washed my face and applied before I applied makeup and it was little smooth at first but was easy to apply. I checked out the label happy to find that it's got ginseng and kojic acid in it. with some safflower and Shea butter. I could tell right off the bat that's what I was feeling once I though it was greasy on my face. I have been using this product now for 2 weeks at bedtime and in the morning and I love the results. my skin is smoother and it's helped my acne for small breakouts. I would recommend this to male or female trying to ave a more even tone to their skin.

Pie I love Pie

Some family is moving away and we are pretty sad about it. So since they are moving, and the baker of the family won't be around as much, I have been asked to take on pie baking for the holiday season. We have already been doing cookies for several years, but I have very giant shoes to fill on the pie front because the past holiday baker is fantastic. I have some new things to try, and I will post photos and such. I hope to find some fun in this holiday season. Stay tuned, and watch me attempt to make something tasty!

Deadly Five Letter Word

Death.. it's a deadly five letter word and how much I can't stand it. I found out an old high-school friend died over the weekend with her husband. It's not only shocking, but it's heartbreaking they have a small child our daughters age in the car who survived. I have been numb to most of the news all day and the thought is bothersome.I was never really close to this high-school friend, but it hit closer to home than I expected. Feelings I didn't think I had or that had been closed off for so long resurfaced in me. I am heartbroken for a little girl who won't know her parents. I am sadden that this must happen all over the world each day.

Sick kiddo today

Our sweet girl was sick today so I played Dr Mommy . We think it's a little serious so the real Dr gave her antibiotics today. I have a blog post about my hair adventures coming soon and and update on my being 30. I also plan a post about my near death experience as well. My health story isn't one I share because I don't like talking about myself or my past .

I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet

I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet
Yes I would
If I only could, I surely would

I have a bunch of forgiveness

Forgive is something I stopped using and need to pick up again. I have a bunch of forgiveness to go around and wrongs to amend. I am trying I always think it's a two way street and I am doing my best to do my part. I am keeping an open mind and heart with hope that the other person can open their road and meet me half way.


It's one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, to forgive. Forgive everybody. Maya Angelou
