Easy standard makeup

This is my usual makeup look- I wear it to work every day and then might spruce it up with a little sparkly eyeshadow when I’m going out. I am NOT a makeup artist in any sense; I get some of my makeup from Sephora, some from department stores, others from CVS. As I continue with this blog, I’ll try progressively more difficult and creative looks.

The only editing on these photos was to blur the background. Sorry for the terrible bathroom lighting 🙂

The Journey Begins


Hi, I’m Kay. Welcome to my blog! I am 28 years old and live with my boyfriend Kyle, our three dogs, and our cat. I’m all about taking small steps to accomplish big changes. I have a number of goals that I’ll be documenting through my blog, and I hope you join me through the progress! Some of my major interests include improving:

  • The decor of my house and landscaping
  • My cooking skills
  • My makeup skills
  • My smile through an 18 month Invisalign treatment
  • My wine-tasting knowledge
  • My overall fitness level and variety of exercise

I’ll also just be documenting events from everyday life!! I’d love to connect if you have any questions about any of my projects!
