Quote of the Day

These lines from “The Next Right Thing,” a song from Frozen 2, seem especially appropriate right now.

“I won’t look too far ahead
It’s too much for me to take
But break it down to this next breath
This next step
This next choice is one that I can make.”

Sartorial Saturday–A Pop of Colour

Taking a break from my usual clothing and accessories Sartorial Saturdays to look at something equally fun…makeup!

My two oldest daughters and I recently discovered Colourpop Cosmetics (I blame Disney and Sailor Moon). I was actually the first one to try the brand, when I saw that they had a Frozen II Elsa collection that I knew would go perfectly with my skin tone on sale. I was impressed with the quality of the items right off the bat, (both the cosmetics and the packaging, which makes everything feel extra luxe), and then we found out that Colourpop was launching a special Sailor Moon collection, too. Ladybug had to get in on that, and while I was placing her order, Bunny decided to add some Disney villains items, and I purchased another Disney set, this time, Belle-themed.

Like I said, I’m really impressed with the quality. The pigments in the eyeshadows are perfectly saturated, and the lipsticks last really well. But I also love the quirky themes and fun colors. Lest you think they only make collections related to TV or movies, they also have a full line of other colorful products, including a “Build Your Own Palette” option for eyeshadow, which I think is really fun, and also really practical, because you can purchase only colors you know you’ll use, instead of having a few you know you’ll never touch.

Now that we’ve found Colourpop, we can’t wait to see what other collections and colors they’re going to come up with next!

Chickadee Thursday

Today was a very exciting day, because Frozen 2 finally came out in theaters! Chickadee has been waiting for what seems like forever to see this movie, and she could hardly think of any other than going to the theater with her sisters all day!

Bunny made her day a little extra special, with a little Frozen face art:

We really enjoyed the movie, and it was a fun way to spend an evening together!
