Late Memorial Weekend Post

I'm so sorry for posting this so late. But I still wanted to share with you all my weekend. The hub & I woke up Saturday morning with no plans. Then he decided to go to the beach. So we got up, got ready & left for Seaside. It was beautiful at home, nice & sunny. But once we got to the mountains & forests, it was overcast. We were both bummed, but we weren't going to let that spoil our weekend. Did some shopping at the tiny outlet that they had (thats where I got the Claire's stuff) Then after that we drove up to Astoria. There was a rave of the Amazing Astoria Column that we just had to go see. So we got up there, but couldn't go inside to climb the hundreds-thousands flight of stairs to see what beautiful scenery it contains from the topdue to interior construction, but it was beautiful just to look at. After camera whoring infront of the column, we headed back to Seaside & did some more shopping in the downtown area (where all the tourist attractions are)

Sunday we woke up went to church & thought there wasn't going to be enough time for us to do anything, but we managed to get some PHO & go hiking/walking with some of our friends & family. So funny how we are always in Portland, but we've never managed to go to this park (Mt. Tabor) Very beautiful I'd say.

Monday the whole family planned to go out to McIver State Park, so we headed out there kinda late. Did some bbqing, eating, volleyballing, walking, & just your average everyday family talking. I didn't get any pictures, but I just wanted to tell you I had a blast!!!!

On our way to McIver State Park you can see Mt. Hood (I think??)

I honestly love some of Claire's Eyeshadows, they are actually pretty pigmented. Well enough to work with anyway's. My very first palette was from Claire's and I LOVED it. I'll have a more actual detailed post up about my love of Claire's cosmetics but for now here's that swatches.I also needed a black eyeliner since I used up my NYC one, so Claire's had a buy one get one half off so yup! grabbed it.

I'm not sure it its obvious yet... but I just wanted to let you know that I LOVE,LOVE,LOVE zebra. It doesn't where we go, I think I've trained my husband to seek anything & everything zebra-printed for me. It's actually pretty funny. When we go shopping, its like all he see's is zebra printed this & that! I love him. Anyways, on with my rambling of my love of zebra prints, here is a tutorial of a very talented artist that I enjoy learning from. I just couldn't help but share with everyone else. Great job Eily!!
