Temptalia Asks You

Do you think wearing a face primer is necessary? Do you wear makeup without one?

Temptalia's Answer.

Yes, if I plan to wear makeup for longer than few hours, but not if I know I’m only going to wear a look or whatever for a couple of hours.

Happy Mother’s Day!

How’s your Sunday treating you? Mellan (for all intents and purposes, my kid!) & I would like to wish all of our lovely moms the very best, most relaxing Sunday of the year!

Both photos above are from when Mellan was just a wee puppy (he’s almost two and half years old now), and he always was a sweetheart.  A nagging, pleading, begging-with-those-eyes kind of sweetheart, that is!   The mini-photo set inside the larger photo has always been one of my favorites, because the dog loves to put anything in his mouth, including himself.  He won’t hold anything for long, but if you give it to him, he’ll mouth it up.  Such is life with a little lab!

I made sure to get all of my homework and studying done on Friday and Saturday, so I could spend Sunday hanging out with my Mom.  (Though, to be honest, I think she’s more excited to see her Mellan than me!)  I love my Mom more than I could ever say.  She is a such an enormous part of my support system.  She’s always there for me, and I can talk to her about anything.  Every year, I appreciate my Mom (and my Dad) more and more–for all their sacrifices and the challenges they had to endure from us kids.  Love you Mom!

Feel free to comment wishing or telling your Mom why she’s so amazing (or why being a mother is so amazing–even if you just have fur-babies)! :)

Temptalia Asks You

What is one thing that totally puts you off a beauty product? (Smell, consistency, color…)

Temptalia's Answer.

I don’t like really, really synthetic scents. I can take a hint of it, but nothing overly synthetic-smelling!

Thanks to CeeBee for today’s question!
