This post is LONGGGG over due

Hello Ladies,
I have missed you all so much and I have missed blogging. I lost my "UMPH" so to say for putting makeup on over the past few months. There have been so many changes in my life and I have to admit it has been very hard to adjust to change after change. I am not person who adapts to change easily, since my entire life has been mostly consistant up until now. All this change in my life has upset me, depressed me and challenged me in ways I never imagined which led me to do nothing but focus on that pain and change HOWEVER because of this change I have grown and learned things in my life I never thought I would. I have also grown closer to some people I never thought I would and distanced myself from others.

I have heard if you are not hurting, you are not growing, and man, have I grown and still growing and learning.

Lately I have been trying to get back into the things I loved and ignorned because honestly, all I wanted to focus on was how upset I was and why me?? Despite knowing that this was unhealthy, I couldn't stop. I went to therapy, talked to family and friends and read tons of articles on how to get out of this "funk", nothing helped, sometimes it seemed like the more I talked about it the worse I felt.

I knew I had to get my passion and fire back for life that I once had. So little by little I am trying. I am slowely getting back to exercising again, shopping and putting on a full face of make up like I love to do. Friday night, we went to the Shaq All Star Comedy Jam, comedy show in NYC and I knew that would be the perfect day to do a full face, take pics, and share with you ladies.  I was excited for once and it felt great. I just hope I can keep it up.

So I present to you my Friday night look:

Foundation: MUFE 125
Concealer: Wet and Wild Coverall # 802
Undereye Concealer: Maybelline Dream Lumi (Love this stuff!)

I wanted a neautral eye because I wanted my pink lips to stand out
Lid: MAC Grain
Crease: MAC Cork
Outer V: MAC Expresso 
Highlight: MAC Grain
Liner: UD Zero
Lashes: Cheapy lashes I found on ebay, that I cut in half :P

Highlight: MAC Shell (my favorite ATM) 
Blush: MAC Gingerly (HG blush for me!)

MAC Speedial

And this is a highly editied pic using my iphone apps, which I enjoy doing from time to time!

NOW some pics from NYC!!!

Times Square

Dinner! NY Pizza! It was so good! But living in CT I am never deprived of good pizza
