Happy Mother's Day + My Face of the Day!

Mother's Day Look
Mother’s Day Look

Hope all the mothers, mothers-to-be, sisters, aunts, grandparents, fathers who played both roles, and any and all maternal figures in your life have a beautiful day filled with love and smiles. Β I know I am beyond fortunate to have the mother that I do; I see her reflected in myself often, and I know that a lot of who I am today is because of her–her philosophies, teachings, support, love, and sacrifices.

Christine, your Mother’s Day sentiment brought tears to my eyes. I am blessed to have a wonderfully mom who I hold close to my heart and even closer when I see her in person. She also gave me one of life’s best blessings – my twin sister.

Christine, I don’t think I’ve seen you so naturally beautiful as you are in this picture. Happy Mother’s Day to you as a pet parent and to those you are celebrating today. Happy Mother’s Day to all in the Temptalia family!

Oooooh! You look so beautiful! I for real caught my breath. That was also a lovely sentiment about your Mom. I would be willing to bet a lot that she is very very proud of you.

They actually are no worse for the wear, even if that doesn’t sound possible! I did about sixty a day (the second half took longer – I was doing them about 15 at a time, then two hours off, then doing another set, then breaking again), but I concluded all 120 by wearing the last one (Mrs. Mia Wallace) and my lips felt totally fine within an hour after finishing!

30 is a normal amount for me – I usually do 15-20 (I try NOT to photograph 1000 things all at once, because then editing is overwhelming — basically I’ve learned that it’s better to do a good amount but one manageable for editing, cropping, and then reviewing shortly after) – but I’ve done 50 in a single go before, so this wasn’t TOO much more of a stretch.

Now, if we were talking about doing 50 lip pencils, no way, no how!

Beautiful tribute for Mother’s Day! And don’t forget the Fur Moms, like you πŸ™‚ Mellan is so fortunate to have you. Love the look, especially the lipstick!

You are absolutely beautiful and radiant, Christine πŸ™‚ You’re really wearing the heck out of that Tarte foundation, girl! It’s great when you can find something to stick with for awhile, isn’t it? Your dress (or maybe it’s a top) also looks super cute and colourful πŸ™‚ Your Mother’s Day sentiment is so sweet. I lost my mom last November so this was my family’s first Mother’s Day without her, so it was hard. But, we decided to get together and have the usual BBQ and champagne in her honour, and it was very nice <3

Thanks, Cathy! πŸ™‚ It’s a top, actually! I live in t-shirts, and I’ve been trying to find a few fun tops so I look more my age sometimes.

I’m so sorry about the loss of your mother, Cathy! I think it was a great idea to get everyone together in her honor. I am glad it turned out to be nice for you after all!
