Easy Everyday Contouring and Highlighting

Contouring and highlighting has been a huge makeup trend in recent years, and with good reason - you can use concealer to achieve more defined cheek bones, to make your lips look bigger, and my personal favorite - to hide a double chin. And despite all of the intricate tutorials out there, I want to show you that it can actually be quick an easy!

The first trick is to start with the right concealer shades. First, let’s get one thing straight: when I say highlighter, I do not mean the super light and shimmery highlighter that should only be reserved for above the cheekbones. I’ve seen all too many makeup vloggers apply that all over, from the forehead to the tip of the nose, to the cupid’s bow and the chin.

How to Pick the Right Shade of Concealer

Date Night: Abuelos & A Movie


Since I met my fiance last year, I've eaten out more times during this last year then...well, possibly more than I have in my entire life. We do tend to try new places, but whenever we really like a restaurant or coffee shop, we go back often. Abuelos is definitely one of those places. I have to really be in the mood for Mexican food, but whenever I am, I sure do love Abuelos. It's so pretty on the inside with a great atmosphere, the food is so delicious, and it's fairly affordable.




They have three different kinds of salsa - a mild, spicy, and a green salsa. They usually bring us a bowl of the green. Ken likes the spicy one, and I really love the sweet green salsa.





This last time I got the fajitas, and they were of course amazing; I don't think I've ever not liked fajitas at any Mexican restaurant. Two other entrees I've tried there include the chimichanga and the steak medallions. They're both so good, I'd definitely recommend them.



After dinner we saw Keanu...no, it won't be up for an Oscar, but it was sooo funny. Sometimes you just have to watch a ridiculous, silly movie and have fun.
