Before the Snow

Winter is in full swing here in St. Etienne, France.  Like full swing.  Snow everywhere that.will.not.melt.  Last week it snowed and snowed and snowed and there was a minute there that I thought I would never go outside again.  The temperature is lower than I have ever seen in my life.  It was 8 degrees last night.  EIGHT.
Anyway, enough with the whining.  I am instead going to post a pictures that was taken before the massive snowfall to give me hope that I will indeed see the grass in my backyard again!  I bought this sweater in Sweden and I love it.  It’s comfy, cute, can be casual or fancy and most of all it keeps you warm! 

I also bought the tights there, but I don’t love those.  Well, I love the way they look, but they already have a run in them!  Cheap, I guess.

Here are some pictures of my makeup.  I did a purple smoky eye just for fun.  You can see the tutorial for it over at 30 Handmade Days where I’m a beauty contributor.  Hopefully, I will have some fun makeup tutorials coming here soon!

This was in the running for a Valentine’s Day outfit, but another one won out.  We went on a date last night because we gotta take what we can get with limited time & babysitters.  
Are you going on a Valentine’s Day date?  If so, I want to hear what you will be wearing!  You can post your favorite look, whether from Pinterest, Polyvore or something you put together on our Facebook page!  Need opinions on which look to try?  Post that on our Facebook too!  We do it all the time and love the feedback everyone gives us!
Have a great day!
Oh and if you have a minute, could you click the circle of mom’s top 25?  We are in the running for Fashion & Beauty blogs!  (we’re not really in the running, we’re like #40, but I thought I would give it a try!)

    I hope your SITS day is fabulous.

    (I can barely read your pale blue links, truly. I thought you were leaving out words in your paragraphs, rather than linking me to other stuff. If you want me to click, I have to be able to read it. Sorry!)

    No Valentine's Day plans but it's my daughter's birthday, so what are we supposed to do anyway, hee.

    Love the look, but would be too afraid to wear it with tights or maybe even leggings. I can't bear to be that bare!
