go big or go home. (WIWW)

struggling.  
i was dressed all weekend.  shocker i know.  i wasn't running around naked.  
dressed with make up - did i take a picture of myself and my cute outfits?  
oh no, why in the world would i do that?
today it was up to me and me alone.  brad was gone and it was pouring rain and then it stopped and the lighting was perfect.  i was dressed and showered and make up.  so i grabbed my camera and a towel (it was really wet, remember?) and made it happen.  
made it happen as in the pictures you see here.
go big or go home.  right?
i went big.
what am i even talking about?
and then i had this genius idea to tell you about my go to cheap mascara that beats out my 
MAC and diorshow most of the time.  and it cost two ninety-nine.
(that's poetry, folks.)
then i realized my not smart self had it all turned around backwards so you would have no clue what i was showing you.  
i also thought i was out of these pictures.
it's not normal to make kissy faces at your mascara.  but then again, i owe alot to that stuff.  
mascara has saved the day time and time again.  
maybe we should all kiss it more.  
i'm kinda serious.

I am in love with that skirt.so cute. My mother in law gives me mascara from Estee Lauder free gifts and every time I see her she has about 3 or 4 for me. I LOVE it and finally ran out and she didn't get any more of the free gifts last year. I went to buy it and it was $28 dollars! For mascara... totally crazy!
