Made a German chocolate cake for my husband's birthday.

Continued from my last makeup post, I've got more goodies to swatch!
A few samples from Printcess Makeup. Beautiful colors inspired by different literary sources.
I especially wanted to try Farseer which is inspired by my fave fantasy novels The Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobb.
These are from Printcess Makeup: Top: Farseer, Spice, Bottom: Rogue and Ares 3.

Took a nice walk to have lunch at a neighborhood cafe that opened up not long ago.
I had the Forager sandwich which had kale salad, avocado, sprouts, pickled onion and roasted grapes on delicious multigrain bread.
Husband had a French classic, Croque Monsieur and we shared fries.
Afterwards we walked a block to Venice Grind. I had a decaf soy latte. The brew tasted molasses-y. I wonder if it was a holiday flavored espresso. It was good.

I experimented with sandwich filling ideas and came up with this tasty sandwich. Roasted red pepper hummus, thinly sliced carrot, jalapeño havarti Daiya cheese and lettuce. And mayo too!

The deals keep coming and I just received these today! Clean Cauldron on Etsy are discontinuing all of their eyeshadows so I was able to get some for around $2-3 each! If you like what you see, head over to the Etsy shop now before they are all gone!
Sweet! My mini haul!
Top to bottom: Mars, Harvest Moon and Lantern.
Top to bottom: Foiled Again, Garnet, Peridot (free gift).
This eyeshadow I got on Amazon for $6.99 from the company Honeybee Gardens. The color is Passage to India which is a rich copper red brown. That's a lot of product for that price! (How can people pay $16 for a tiny pan of MAC eyeshadow?)
Passage to India by Honeybee Gardens, Foiled Again and Garnet by Clean Cauldron.
Mars, Lantern, Harvest Moon, Peridot. Lantern is gorgeous! It's a light orange with pink duochrome.
It's official. I don't have enough eyes for all these eyeshadows in my collection! But they sure are fun to experiment with.

Got out of work early today and when I got home, I made a pot of illy decaf. My fave way to prepare is to heat about 1/4 cup vanilla soymilk in a mug, pour in the brewed coffee to the top and stir in a tsp of agave. It's delicious! I've been drinking mainly decaf as I'm not allowed too much caffeine because of the baby. Illy decaf and Peet's decaf Major Dickison are my favorites.
The other night I had this delicious Gardein beefless burger with Follow Your Heart cheese for dinner. With all the fixin's.
Favorite fruit to eat during pregnancy. It's sweet and refreshing and hydrating! Also curbs sweet and snack cravings. I've only gained 7 lbs in 6 months and my doc is happy with that.
