Happy (Late) Easter!

I hope everyone had as good a long weekend as I did! I sadly didn't see my parents this Easter, but I still had a very full and fun weekend! My family isn't very religious, so we decided to postpone our family dinner to later in the week because I had plans with other people. I unfortunately don't have many pictures to show you though, since I was busy and forgot my camera most of the time. I know this post is a bit late, but I have had a busy week!

I spent Friday grocery shopping and Saturday preparing various foods for an Easter party at my friends place that happened on Sunday. I absolutely looooove when I get an opportunity to bake food for other people so I went a little overboard and made 4 different things. I made curry stuffed buns, soft pretzels, chocolate crinkle cookies and a pan of monkey bread! I have photographs of none of it, but if anyone wants to see a post about any of those recipes, just ask in the comments!

I did manage to snap a quick photo of my friday shopping makeup and Easter Sunday makeup, so here they are!!! Light makeup for errands:



This was just foundation, a bright coral blush, mascara and a Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Mischievous. The next day for the Easter party I wore this:

This look was once again done using my Sigma Creme de Couture palette. It has the most perfect pastel Easter shades so I just grabbed it without even looking at anything else that day.

The easter party was so much fun! I got to see a lot of my friends and we had a great time and ate a ton of great food. One of my friends made awesome bacon wrapped chicken bites and another friend made a delicious stew. We played Cards Against Humanity (wich I won wooo!) and watched movies. It was a really special day, and hopefully the starting of a new tradition for us!

The next day my boyfriend and I went to his parents house for their egg hunt and Easter dinner. The egg hunt at Nick's parents is always tons of fun because his dad takes hiding the eggs very seriously. To him, he wins if we don't find all the eggs, which makes the game hilariously difficult. We also had a really good dinner there of ham, roast beef, asparagus, potatoes and lots of other extras! Unfortunately I got no pictures of this day either! It was a pretty camera-less weekend for me...

I finally saw my parents a few days later and had my first barbecued meal of the season, Chicken and grilled vegetables. Yummy! I have truly eaten like a king this week. The rest of my week has been spent spring cleaning. My boyfriend bought us disinfecting wipes with our usual cleaning supplies this time and I love them so much! They have made cleaning so much easier in a lot of cases!

Anyways, that's it for my little life update. What did you guys do for the Easter weekend?
