Family Reunion Weekend

This year was a good year for family reunions in my family. Both my mom and dad sides of the family had reunions and I loved both! Here's just a few photos from the reunion on my mom's side! Oh and of course my FOTD!

Group shot of the fam, cousins. I'm sure you can pick out my sisters and the Kid. The smallest one is my youngest nephew.

Mom, Grandma and me!

Here's my FOTD. The color of the Summer for me seems to be turquoise. I always add this to my looks.. it's unintentional!

For this look I used the Sephora Beauty Insider's exclusive Stila Charm Palette.
Such a beautiful palette! Do you have it?
Becca Tinted Moisturizer
Ben Nye translucent powder in Topaz
Devil blush
So glad I pulled this out!
MAC Pagan eye shadow (inner corner, lid)
Turquoise shade from palette (on the rest of the lid)
Purple and gold shadows (blended and used in the crease/outer v)
MAC Penultimate liquid liner (to line top lid)
NYX Teal pencil liner (waterline)
ok follow me on this one lol..
Purple shadow from palette at lower lash line
Turquoise shadow on lower lid
Smashbox lip gloss in Happy Hour

Okay, I had to add these photos for good measure. Below is my dad and my youngest nephew, who is named after my dad. This little boys LOVES my dad (as all of us do), but I will say they have a special relationship. No one can calm him down like Granddad. When he saw him this day, his face lit up and he waved his little hand with fervor saying hello- screaming 'Granddad' (in his baby version)! He doesn't do that with anyone else, except maybe his cousins. As you can see, he had to have my dad's hat!

We had a ball! A huge turnout!! What did I expect as this was a 'Smith' family reunion LOL! Food, family, activities, line dancing.... ahhh we look forward to next year!
