    It’s been awhile since my last Life In Pictures post. I think I’ll probably write a non-beauty post soon here and share what’s been going on in my life recently as I’ve been itching to say stuff but I want it to be beyond the makeup and more about… life. You can also feel free to follow me on Instagram (@mandyeverley), which gives a glimpse into my day-to-day as I post more than just makeup on there–photos of Jackson (duh), books I’ve been reading, other miscellany.


    Prettymaking: Life In Pictures - 012

    • Row 1:
      1. Me and Jackson… just cuddling and stuff. He has a big head.
      2. One of Jackson’s favorite things: snow. But just about anything in life is one of Jackson’s favorite things.
      3. I like this picture of Jackson and I. No particular reason, but I just do. Smile
    • Row 2:
      1. I recently saw The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug and it made me want to start re-reading The Lord of the Rings… so I did. One of my favorite poems (as well as many other people’s favorite) comes from The Fellowship of the Ring.
      2. It has been extra-snowy here in the Midwest, but that’s not uncommon. It is the Midwest. We only have two seasons: winter and road construction.
      3. I finally invested in new boots. My favorite pair’s soles were basically non-existent, and this pair just so happened to be marked down. Originally around $170, I got them for about $40. Smile
    • Row 3:
      1. Been feeling extra lazy with my makeup because getting ready for 8 am Statistics class doesn’t really make me want to do a full face. My current “go-to” has been CC cream, mascara, and a swipe of red lipstick. This red is Milani’s “Ruby Valentine” which I posted a quick review of here.
      2. My New Year’s Resolution to read for at least an hour five out of seven days of the week is going pretty strong! Currently on The Omnivore’s Dilemma based on a recommendation by a friend. Feel free to be my friend on Goodreads!
      3. For Valentine’s Day this year, I gave Jackson a special little bone that said “I Woof You” — so stinkin’ cute!!

    See you later!

      OMgoodness, I wish I could be lazy and still look as fantastic as you do in Row 3 Pic 1.. Also I love that poem from LOTR. I good friend of mine does elvish calligraphy and she wrote a section of that poem for me on a scroll of hand-made paper in both english and elvish. It is absolutely beautiful.

        Ahh, thank you so much! Blush

        Oh my gosh, I wish I could do the Elvish calligraphy… I mean I wish I could do calligraphy in general, but do be able to do it in Elvish? That’s so cool that she can do that. What a great gift.

      Those are lovely boots. Congrats on the great purchase!

        Thank you! I actually got a lot of compliments from co-workers on them, because the only boots they have ever seen me wear were my shoddy, falling-apart ones. I think they were impressed I actually parted with my old ones and bought a decent pair of boots. (But I secretly still have my old pair in my closet… I can’t bear to get rid of them yet.)
