Photography & Graduation

I photography, and vow to someday own that big Cannon camera I've been longing after for years. In the meantime I use my cell phone, and my 14 megapixel digital camera, which I think do a pretty good job...... for now. 

Today my nephew Adam  graduated. The entire family is extremely proud of him, and wish him a bright and successful future. Here are a few graduation photo's I took of him earlier this year. These are not the full size version, as we had someone try to take them before, so they are smaller, and watermarked, but you get the idea just the same. 

I can't believe how fast the time has flown by. It seems like yesterday he was riding a tricycle , and asking to go to the park. They grow so fast! 
Congrats Adam on your H.S. Graduation!

My Love For Make Up & Madison Street Beauty & NEW COUPON CODE!!!!!

Would you like to save 20% on your purchase of make up from Madison Street Beauty? I know I love to save... that way I can buy more.  Enter POWERSOFBEAUTY in the coupon code box when you check out at MSB and you will receive 20% OFF your purchase! 
♥ ♥ ♥

When I was a teenager  I loved to sit and watch my Aunt A. , who is nine years older than me put on her make up. She LOVED make up, and had a ton of it. I was tickled pink when she would give me a blush or shadow she was either tired of, or didn't care for. It was like winning the lotto.. the make up lotto. She always had the new lip stick, the new color blush, or mascara. Her vanity had drawers over flowing with every type cosmetic you can imagine, and it was pure AWESOMENESS. 

To this day, she and I both share that same love for cosmetics. We chat from time to time about different products. What's worked for us , and what hasn't. Things we would like to try, etc. 

One day while I was poking around on Etsy ( while I should have been listing items for sale in my own shop) I came across Madison Street Beauty. What got my interest was that their products are natural and vegan... that got me looking more into their items, and I saw several things I wanted to try. I must tell you my face is very sensitive, and has issues of it's own, so I'm pretty cautious as to what I am willing to try. 

I started out trying their Aloe Airbrush Setting Powder which is just fabulous. I like to use a setting powder, but I hate when they look cakey, or orange. I'm not a pumpkin, nor do I want all my pores, and creases highlighted. The Aloe Airbrush Setting Powder ( click photo below to be taken to it's page)  from Madison Street Beauty makes my face look fabulous. It doesn't draw attention to pores,  or lines. It's lightweight, so I don't feel like my face is caked with product, and it's affordable!

Setting Powder Mineral Makeup - Aloe Airbrush Setting Powder - 5g Mineral Makeup Vegan Setting Powder

Since trying the setting powder I have tried their eye shadow, blush, and concealer. I love them ALL! You can purchase a trial size of most things in the shop which is how I like to try new things. I thought at first they would be so small it would be a one time try, but each time there has been more than enough to try it several times. 

Today, I ordered six eye shadows. Three for me, and three for my own niece who loves make up just as I do, and LOVES it when I have something for her. It seems this love of make up has come full circle...My Aunt to Me, and Me to my beloved Niece.  

Madison Street Beauty is having a HUGE sale on some of their make up today to move out the old packaging. You can find their 70% OFF clearance section here. Hurry on over, and get your beautiful eye shadows while you can. So many to choose from, but such a great price you don't have to! What's your favorite color?

A Peak At Two Special Orders

The batteries for my regular camera are dead and in the charger, so I had to use my cell phone for these shots. Unfortunately the lighting was terrible,  but I thought I'd share these anyways. 

As you all know I recently posted a new style Beanie for sale in my Powers Of Love shop on Etsy . It's perfect for Spring and Summer with it's open web style. 

Here are a couple special orders that are shipping out this week. 

Mrs. S.P's Web Slouchy in Fruit Punch

And Mrs. K.C's Web Slouchy in Sunrise

Both are fun, bright and stylish. I love them both so much!  Which is your favorite?

My Favorite Model

Recently I decided to make a new style slouchy beanie... it's open, airy and resembles a web. I have to say it looks great on the mannequin head, but it looks stellar on my niece Codie! 

She's always more than willing t be a model for me and my Etsy shop items, and today she rocked it. 

We always have a blast! Here is just one of the awesome pics from today.....

These are not listed in my shop yet as I have some shop rearranging to do, but hopefully they will be there soon. If you are interested in one, feel free to contact me here, my Etsy Shop, or my Powers Of Love Facebook Page
