Happy National Lipstick Day

Hey y'all! Thanks for all the love! I'm excited for this new blog adventure. 

But lets just talk about how yesterday was National Lipstick Day, I love lipstick!

My love of lipstick started as a young girl. I would watch as my mom would apply the perfect shade of pink lipstick without even using a mirror, it was magic. How could you not fall in love. From there I would steal her lipstick and try to put it on myself, that never went as planned.

My mom, sister and I rocking the 80's look and great lipstick as always. "I got it from my momma"

After the "lipstick all over phase" I entered into the Lip Smacker phase (watermelon was the best). Oh the memories. I couldn't go anywhere without a good stash of Lip Smackers. I then found my love for big girl lipstick. My absolute favorite right now is Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte by Kate Moss. I have two shades of pink that     I love especially in the summer time.

So when all else fails "put on some lipstick and pull yourself together" - Elizabeth Taylor
Or just hope there is an amazing snapchat filter that day.

                 I'll leave you all with the wise words of Audrey Hepburn. Thanks for reading xoxo!

My husband is making me do this......

My husband is really good at getting me to do things out of my comfort zone. 
This blog being one of them, (how could you say no to that hunky face) he told me before he left for work that if I don't have a blog post by 11:00pm tonight he is going to wake me up when he gets home and make me, so I figured I should just get it done haha. 

Anyways, I am M C Emily (I will go into more detail about my rapper name later). I am a wife, momma to my two fur babies and I am on the road to getting back to my "fighting" weight. I am LDS and I love sports (GO UTES) and food.

Besides my husband pushing me to start this blog I thought this could be a good way for me to get my thoughts and feelings out and possibly find more ladies out there that have they same thoughts or going through the same things as me. I am hoping to be your go to blog when it comes to the "real" side of things, especially losing weight. Because lets be honest it's not fun and eating cute donuts and cupcakes is wayyy more fun, until you can't fit into your cute jeans anymore. The struggle is real people.

Speaking of struggle.....and overcoming them........ I have gained some post-marriage weight, its like the freshman 15 but worse. Since the weight gain I have pretty much hated myself, I dodge all mirrors (especially the full body ones) and photos are now scary, don't even get me started on sneak attack selfies, you know when you turn the camera around on your phone and think "do I always have that many chins." The weight has affected more than just that, I'm not comfortable in social situations anymore and I avoid it like the plague. I feel like all people see when they are around me is how much weight I have gained. My husband hates it when I talk bad about myself and he is always trying to be positive and tell me how beautiful I am and he loves me no matter what (I know I hit the jackpot in the husband department.) Hopefully through this blog I can get my feelings out and realize that I am still the same person I was before I gained this weight and I should love myself no matter what!

These are the most recent photos of myself. These were painful to take but I did it. One step at a time y'all.                P.S. doughnuts from The Dough Bar are pretty amazing, and they are healthy- they have protein! 

Well I have made my deadline and I will be able to sleep soundly tonight. Thanks for reading and feel free to leave any positive comments. Lets keep it classy y'all. xoxo
