Romantic Fall look with a Twist

This look is a basic neutral eye with a fun, fresh twist and a bit of unexpected color.

Most of the makeup in this tutorial is NYX cosmetics. Everything other than the Mascara and lower lash line color, is all from my local CVS.

Grand Opening!!!!  

At least that  is what it feels like to me right now.  This morning I purchased my new domain. You might notice it at the top of the page.  We are now Hope's Beauty Bar.  A place for women to come for all things inner and outer beauty. All your old links should still work. To find me now is easy just type in  If you hit any glitches please let me know. I have paid a company to make all the technical switches for me. It should all be done by tomorrow, at the very latest Monday.  

The reason for changing my blog name and purchasing a domain of my own was simple really. The last year I have noticed that I have enjoyed sharing my DIY tips and tricks with you. I also love to try new beauty products, lets face it I am a self confessed beauty junkie, So doing reviews just seems natural. Hope's Beauty Bar is a name that really explains my purpose and vision. 

Beauty is not skin deep, It comes from the inside first. I really want you all to feel comfortable coming here and sharing your voice. I hope to build a community of women that love to share, learn and support each other. 

Thank you so much for your patience this weekend while I get everything set up.  Don't forget to follow and subscribe.  XOXOXO Hope

Exciting News Big Changes

Three years ago I thought it would be a great idea to create a blog.  I had no idea what I was doing.  I logged in to Blogger and went through the steps.  It was easy to get started but then I was stuck looking at a blank canvas not knowing what direction to take this new project. 

Over the years my blog has become something more than what I originally thought it would be.  I have put countless hours in creating a space that is mentally and visually stimulating for myself and hopefully you guys enjoy and maybe learn something new.

When I started, this blog was focused on all natural DIY's for home and skin.  Picking the name Mama's Crazy Happy Life seemed perfect, especially since I had just had a baby and life was Crazy Happy. However the name no longer fits what this blog has become nor does it explain my vision.

Changing names has been on my mind for over a year.  Now the time is right to make the change.  I will be purchasing my domain as well as paying for the switch so it will be as seamless as possible.  The name change should not effect any of the links you might currently use to get here. You will simply see a different name on my page and I will have a new url for future visits. 

I felt that it was important to let you all know before I made everything official.  It is also your space since you are the ones who take time out of your busy lives to read my posts.  So Thank You!! From the bottom of my heart.  I truly can't explain what it means when I see a post was read 3,000 times.  That is just crazy!  Thanks for being interested in what I live and love.

By now you are probably wondering what the new name is.  Right?  I can't tell you yet.  Sorry.  But I will soon I promise within the next couple of days as soon as I purchase it. You will also start to see the name on all my social media sites such as Instagram and Twitter changed as well. While you wait I would love to hear you think it might be and what names you like.  So comment below. 

Here is a sneak peek at my next makeup how to.
It would have been up last week but my baby sister flew in from North Carolina without me knowing to surprise me for a whole week. I abandoned all cares and spent time with her since it had been four years since our last visit.
