My Birthday Surprise

Ray and Dave planned a fabulous surprise for my birthday. They booked us at Disney’s Old Key West Resort in Orlando for a weekend of fun and relaxation. I LOVED our hotel room. I should have taken pictures, but I didn’t think to at the time. I didn’t get on my computer really at all, though I did check emails and twitter from my G1 phone. The bathroom in the hotel was awesome (especially compared to the bathroom at the last hotel we stayed at).

Friday night Ray and Dave had made reservations for the three of us at Jiko, the African restaurant located at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. The food was pretty tasty. If you’ve never been to the Animal Kingdom Lodge, the decor is gorgeous. It’s really a lovely hotel.

You can see how we all cleaned up for dinner.

After dinner, we rented some movies from Blockbuster and went back to the hotel and watched them. Saturday and Sunday we relaxed around the resort, though we did go see the movie Year One at Downtown Disney. We came home Sunday evening.

This is Friday’s Look, and the same thing that I wore Friday night, only I made it a bit darker later in the evening. I like the Morgana Minerals White Gel Eye Shadow, but I may try Aromaleigh’s Indelible Cream Eye shadow in Pink Pearl next time with Archetype’s China White. Fyrinnae’s Mystic is SO GORGEOUS! I love how it looked with my eyes.

Shade Descriptions:
Mystic – sparkly deep pewter with shimmer that varies from aqua, pink, lavender, silver and light green
Phyrra – sheer peach with a blue sheen
China White – a crystalline barely pink base with a pile of aquamarine and purple sparkles

Eyes:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Morgana Minerals White Gel Eye Shadow – as base on lids
Archetype China White – on eyelid on top of White
Fyrinnae Mystic – in crease and outer vee, along outer upper lash line and lower lash line
Aromaleigh Phyrra – from crease to eyebrows
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero – lower water line
Benefit BadGal Mascara in Black

Cheeks:
Victoria Secret’s Pink Splash

Lips:
Aromaleigh Minty Cocoa Chip lip balm
Too Faced Borderline lip liner
MAC Lipstick in Sweet Thing

Face:
Meow Pampered Puss Foundation in Inquisitive

Now, I brought only a few of my favorite colors with me on my surprise trip that Dave and Ray planned. I brought Purely Cosmetics Soft Moon, Fyrinnae’s Mischief Makers and Digital Faerie, Aromaleigh’s Fanclub and Phyrra.

However, I ended up wearing this look on Saturday and Sunday:

Eyes:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Aromaleigh Phyrra – all over eye area
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero – outer upper lash line, lower water line
Benefit Badgal Mascara in Black

Cheeks:
Victoria Secret’s Pink Splash

Lips:
Aromaleigh Minty Cocoa Chip lip balm
Too Faced Borderline lip liner
MAC Lipstick in Sweet Thing

Face:
Meow Pampered Puss Foundation in Inquisitive Siamese

I really love Phyrra for a sheer wash of color with blue shimmer. Ray especially likes it.

And that’s how I spent my birthday weekend :)

      Oh thank you :)
      It was a very nice surprise from them!
      Apparently they got a steal of a deal, too.
      It was just so nice to not have to cook, clean, or be on a schedule for a few days, just doing whatever I wanted.
