Here are some pictures from Naomi’s high school graduation.
By the way, I made sure Naomi heard my big mouth. Proud mommy.
Naomi graduated with honors and is also an International Baccalaureate candidate.
Her dress, shoes, and jewelry were purchased from Charlotte Russe.
Next stop Temple University!
I will admit I had very little involvement preparing Naomi for her senior prom. I was there when she picked out her prom shoes from Macy’s. I like the Betsy Johnson shoes for myself. 😉
Prom dress shopping came down to the wire for Naomi. She was extremely busy with the school musical. She found her dress from a specialty store called The Winner located in Sharon Pennsylvania (about an hour away from Pittsburgh).
Naomi purchased her jewelry from Claire’s.
I found a cute wristlet from Burlington Coat Factory.
Naomi’s hair is actually a wig she made. She purchased the hair from Alie Express in deep curl Malaysian.
The only thing I did with makeup was give her a purple smoky eye. Naomi did the rest of her face.
I decided to renew my beauty subscriptions with Birchbox and ipsy. To be honest I haven’t felt the need to shop at Sephora and ULTA as much. There have been times I almost bought eyeliner only to receive one in either ipsy or Birchbox. I have had a very positive experience overall. I renewed with ipsy because they are very generous with full sized beauty products. Receiving makeup brushes has definitely won me over. I renewed with Birchbox because of the wide variety of beauty brands I’ve been exposed to. I have made purchases on the Birchbox website in the past. I like to ease of placing an order.
Whether I take on other beauty subscriptions that remains to be seen. 😉
This is what I received from the May Birchbox and ipsy Bag.

It’s common knowledge that I am always tempted to order from Crown Brush when featured on HauteLook. I have seriously been making the effort to order items I actually need. The brush sets always catch my attention though.
Here is a previous Crown Brush Order I placed on HauteLook.
I needed more of the HD Effect Foundation Primer and HD Effect Under Eye Primer. The foundation primer does help the foundation go on more smoothly and last longer. The under eye primer minimizes fine lines. My under eye concealer doesn’t crease either.
I have used the Make-up Brush Cleaner in the past. It left my brushes cleansed and conditioned. I bought a bigger bottle this time around.
I ordered the Professional Makeup Wipes just to try out.
By the way, Crown Brush is currently on HauteLook. I wonder if my youngest Naomi needs anything. 😉
