Most importantly, I am an aunt again!! My sis n law just had her second baby, and now I have a sweet little niece. I got to visit her this weekend, and just had to be a proud aunt and post a couple pics of me with my niece Elise.
Elise with her favorite aunt!! Me!!
Isn't she GORGEOUS??!!
*A little baby product plug before makeup talk begins* I bought her a pack of Aden & Anais muslin swaddle blankets- they are the bomb!

If you have brown eyes, I have found thru trial and error, that shimmery silvers, greys, and gunmetals make brown peepers pop nicely.
