    Mom Jeans

    This weekend, I finally decided that it was time to move out of the ever-so-comfortable maternity jeans and into real, made-for-a-woman jeans — as in, not the low-cut skinny jeans currently filling my drawers. You know, the ones that aren’t made for a girl with rather curvaceous thighs and a plentiful bum, and thus show some skin whenever you bend over or sit down? Yeah. I should probably toss those. But I love the colors. Anyway! So I went jeans shopping.

     (Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm in Grape Vine) (Revlon lipstick, Kiss Me Coral) (Maybelline Lipstick in Coral Crush) (Maybelline Lipstick in Fuchsia Fever) (Maybelline Lipstick in Red Revolution) I never realized how different my mood can be just by what I wear on my lips. These are my five favorite lipcolors right now(the first one looks bare, I know, but trust me… there is a tint of color there.) I thought I’d share them with you on rather than just in their tubes. Which is your favorite?
