Easter Weekend!

Hi everyone!
I hope you've all had a great week! :) I have some more throw-back pics for you- my mom and dad have been sending some my way. I don't know exactly how old I am here, but I know pig tails were a common hairdo for me as a kid! Looks like I'm all done up for church. And oh the memories of that inflatable rabbit (sitting beside me) that would always come out on Easter! Mom would also hide eggs filled with candy all over the house. How fun!

And this isn't exactly the Easter bunny, but it is a rabbit! It's Bugs from a trip to Six Flags St. Louis- I believe I was in second grade :) I also remembered riding the rickety old Screaming Eagle rollercoaster with my dad and being scared to death. I thought I was going to fly out of my seat. I haven't gone on a big rollercoaster since! 

Do you have any special childhood Easter memories or traditions? The last time I did a throw-back post (me putting makeup on my dad as a kid), I loved reading your first makeup memories in the comments section. That was very entertaining! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and be safe if you're traveling! :)

Daily Nuggets...
  • I mentioned this on Twitter & Facebook, but I shot my March Best in Beauty video today- that'll be posted tomorrow! :) 
  • Can't wait for IMATS New York next week! 
  • I ordered a lighting kit so I can make videos at different times of the day when the natural lighting isn't so good... it just came in this afternoon!
  • I'd like to give a shout-out to rxstrmom's channel on YouTube! Patti is 69 years old and I love seeing her perspective on beauty and what kinds of products work for her. She's just beautiful, and so kind-hearted as well. Patti if you're reading this, thank you for supporting my channel! :) 


  1. I have been reading you blog and watching your videos for about six months now...and I love them! I am from southern Illinois too, about thirty minutes from you. I used to watch you on yhe news every morning while getting ready for work (and yes I cried during your farewell episode). I just wanted tosay thank you for always being so positive and happy. I strive to be more like that everyday. Keep up the great work. And if you ever feel the need to help someone learn how to better do their makeup...I'm game since I'm so close. I would love it!

  9. Hi Emily, I always enjoy watching your videos and after reading your Easter stories, I just wanted to share about a little about my Easter memories. I was born and raised in Hungary, and immigrated to the United States about 10 years after I married my husband who is from Texas. In Hungary we have very different and unique Easter traditions. Easter egg decorating is one old tradition, and the other is "sprinkling" which is when men and boys spray women and girls on their hair with perfume. Easter-related celebrations take place for about three days in Hungary from Good Friday until the following Monday which is when the sprinkling takes place. I remember when I was a little girl I used to count how by how many man and boys I got sprinkled on Easter Monday, and at one time it was over 110 times. Can you imagine the smell of my hair by the end of that day? It took me days to get rid of the smell. LOl Anyways, I don’t want to bore you any longer. Keep posting the amazing videos and have a Happy Easter! Zita from Texas

  10. I loved Easter egg hunts and dyeing the eggs. So many memories that not a particular one stands out.

  14. Emily! Really quick tip that worked for me- I don't know if you have these mascaras, and I didn't care for themselves much by themselves, but if you put on one coat of the Maybelline Plush mascara then a coat of the maybelline falsies flared, my lashes looked crazy thick and long! Worth a shot if you have them!
