Pregnancy Food Eats for my 6-7 month belly :) My Food Diary! Food Added Daily :)

What I need is a delivery 18-wheeler to bring me a stash of all my favorite cravings at the moment lol I constantly run out! Cravings aren't the same either....One day I'll crave marshmallow peeps but 2 weeks later they're more than a distant memory. For the most part I'm craving alot of cheese, sweets, and tender meats like pot roast, guisada, and tender shredded chicken hugged by a warm soft tortilla. Here are the foods that take me to heaven :)

Carne Guisada Tacos

Lemon Meringue Pie

Cheese and Crackers

Cheese Danish. Bonus if mixed with Fruit Jelly :)

Deviled Eggs (Filling slightly sweet!)

Spaghetti with Meatballs

Cheese Enchiladas

Breakfast Tacos. Bacon, Sausage or Chorizo included is a must :)

Is Flamingo Pose a Coral or Pink?

What would you call it?

Milani's Color Statement lipstick in Flamingo Pose is a beautiful, satin coral pink color that is bright but modest when worn. The question arose a few days ago after trying on...It's so not all that important but this question is urking me when I wear it :)

I took the time to compare FP with a few Corally lipsticks and then swatched next to a majority of Pink lipsticks. While the coral tone seems to stick out a bit compared to other corals in my stash I still feel that in this shot FP may just be a pink....But the shot with pinks say otherwise...

In Below pic - See how FP is just brighter in comparison? The shot is pretty much true than what was seen in real life. During swatching FP continually kept looking just too corally to be sat next to pink tones, Which brings me to the question again (I'm going to drive myself crazy, haha)

FP also poses similarities to Wet n Wild Don't Blink Pink (even though in this shot it says otherwise.) In person the two are similar.

I'm calling it a Coral. I think I'll stick with that :)

Drugstore Beauty Spotted at the Oscars 2014

Anne Hathaway has her nails done by Celebrity Nail Artist Tom Bachik! How stunning is her dress?! I was almost blinded by it via HD TV but I can only imagine how gorgeous it was in person!

Get her nails! Step-By-Step:
STEP 1: "I first applied a light nude color with a bit of a golden sheen from L’Oreal Paris’ Colour Riche Le Blancs in Golden (only available internationally)."
STEP 2: "I then applied L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Sweet Nothings ($5.99) 
- A sheer pinky nude, on top. Together, the two shades gave her the perfect, soft-nude color that matched her skin tone beautifully."

Jessica Biel! Remember a few articles ago I briefly discussed how sharp side hair was coming about? Her hair is the perfect sharp side. I love it :) Celebrity Hairstylist Mara Roszak gives us her details on how she achieved this look for Jessica.

Get her hair look! Step-By-Step:
STEP 1: "To start, when her hair was still damp, I applied L’Oreal Paris Oleo Therapy Perfecting Oil Essence ($12.99) from the middle to end of her hair. This helps smoothe the hair to make it silky and shiny."
STEP 2: "I then sprayed the L’Oreal Paris Boost It High Lift Creation Spray ($4.99) at the roots. Even though we were going for a smooth and sleek look, I still wanted her to have a little volume at the roots."
STEP 3: "I then I made a deep side part and blow dried her hair with a boar bristle brush."
STEP 4: "Once hair was blow dried straight and smooth, I used a 1 ½ curling iron and just curled the ends of hair to give it a bit of bend."
STEP 5: "Once I was done curling the hair, I sprayed the L’Oreal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Sleek It Strand-Smoother Serum Spray ($4.99) all over. This helped give the hair an ultra-sleek look, while adding a touch of shine."
STEP 6: "Even though the rain had stopped, I finished with the L’Oreal Paris Lock It Weather Control Hairspray ($4.99) to lock in the style and make sure Jessica would not have to worry about anything all night."

Kerry looks so cute with her baby bump! Her Raisin lip color prompted me to buy a similar color today, but let's see what Celebrity Makeup Artist Carola Gonzalez used on Kerry for this simple and elegant look!

Until next time - I'm off to bed, I've had a long day! Well, I may do a little makeup shopping online first :)
