Stuff and things...

I've been meaning to link up with Kristin for her awesome "Stuff and Things" Thursday link-up for awhile and figured today was the perfect day to start.

I was having a conversation with my aunt yesterday about eyebrows, and it reminded me that I have been intending to do a whole post about how I fill mine in to make them look fuller and frame my face.  But in the interest of not boring you all to death, I figured I'd just show you why I do it via selfie.  And why you probably should too.

My right eyebrow (that's left to you) was filled in with an Anastasia Brow Wiz pencil (in soft brown), while the left eyebrow (right to you) was left naked.  Ooh la la!

Now that I've started filling my brows in, I feel like I look so unfinished when I don't.  It's certainly something that can be taken overboard, but I love that it seems to frame my face and allows me to create a more refined arch.  Anyway, that's my PSA for filling in your eyebrows.  Try it sometime!

Micah and I are contemplating taking a trip somewhere on the east coast in October-ish.  I'm hoping to find a place with a secluded beach (preferably rocky AND sandy) where I can read, Micah can fish, and we can eat delicious seafood.  I've got my eye on Maine, the Carolinas, and possibly even Florida if I could find somewhere that wasn't super touristy.  

Do you guys have any favorite coastal towns we should look into?

Also, I hosted a small baby girl shoe sale a couple of nights ago on Instagram.  There are still a few pairs of really adorable shoes left (mostly in the 4-5 range) that Grace never wore because her feet are too darned chubby.  So in case you weren't already inundated with the pictures in your Instagram feed (so sorry!), go check them out. (You can find me @mrshargrave).

Lastly, this is what I came home to the other night as Micah was supposed to be feeding Grace dinner.

Happy Thursday, friends!

I VOTE THE CAROLINAS!!! DUH! But seriously--if you do? Please let me know, I'd love to sneak by for an afternoon or something!

Okay, your eyebrow looks great. I haven't mastered it yet (or found the right product) because i feel like mine always look to harsh if I do ANYTHING to them at all and then I look like a tranny.

I love that picture of Gracie. Too cute!

I too just started doing my brows, and it makes a huge difference! BTW - You are looking awesome! I LOVE the daddy dinners. They always crack me up. Shes getting so big!!

I have always dreamed of going to Maine, but I've heard the Outer Banks are fabulous in North Carolina, too. I know wherever y'all go will be great. :) Thanks for the tip about filling in brows. I recently purchased the Anastasia stencils to shape my brows and they're pretty cool! :)

Brooke said...

We LOVE Outerbanks, NC... so beautiful and you have lots of different options, we really enjoyed seeing all of the lighthouses.

Hannah said...

Your brows look so awesome. I love filling mine in, but I use a powder. Maybe I should try the pencil? I don't know, it makes me worried, lol.

Kristin said...

…or you could come to Colorado Springs…:)

But I'd go to Maine. We loved it!

I need a professional to work on my eyebrows. I'm always scared someone will absolutely butcher them though.

I have been to that lighthouse in Maine you posted! We only spent a weekend in Maine, but I fell in love. New England is where it's at if you want Fall color. Also, someday, maybe not this particular trip, I highly recommend Quebec city in Canada. It's like traveling to Europe and stepping back in time. Amazing!

Pssh, Goldfish totally make a good dinner...right!? LOL I kid.

Emily said...

Okay, now I feel like I totally need to fill in my brows. Tell me how you do it-I don't want to go overboard!!!!

Have you considered Oregon/the Pacific Northwest? Maybe not the direction you are wanting to go, and it will probably be chilly that time of year? Beautiful sandy and rocky beaches, but we were there in July...
