Saturday Night In {& a Beauty Giveaway}

I feel like I've been such a bad blogger lately. I haven't been online a whole lot, and I've got so many blog posts started that I've left unfinished...Life happens, though. I'll get to it when I get to it. I promise. There's a lot of good stuff that I have to publish. I just have to find the time to do it. And in the meantime, let's do a quick weekend wrap up, shall we?



I remember reading about the movie premiere of Moms' Night Out. I read 3-4 blog posts about it, and I knew I wanted to see it when it came to DVD/Blu-Ray. Well, this past weekend was the weekend. We had a family movie night on Saturday night, and we rented Rio 2 and Moms' Night Out and had a night in with the help of Redbox.

I wasn't a huge fan of Rio 2. It seemed like there were way more musical moments than the first movie. I like the first one better. It happens a lot, right? Part Two movies just aren't as good as the originals. Some sequels just weren't meant to be. Well, Rio 2 was still cute, and the kids liked it, but I didn't care for it as much. It's not one that I would buy.

Moms' Night Out was really cute. I liked it. My daughter liked it. We laughed. And when the lead actress (Sarah Drew) said, "I'm a mom blogger," My daughter looked at me and giggled! It's a great movie for the whole family to enjoy, and we did enjoy it together. I wonder if my kids would let me have a Mom's Night Out anytime soon?

Outside of our movie night, we worked on some new jewelry pieces for our Etsy shop and for an upcoming craft fair. This is one of the first finished pieces:



What do you think? 
We had some vintage music sheets that we were planning to make paper beads with, but we haven't gotten to it yet (those take lots of time, and time is one thing we've been short on lately). So we decided to try something new and made some pendants with the pretty paper and thought they would look great as necklaces. 



Lastly, we were checking out all the fabulous Fall 2014 makeup trends from Allure. My favorite trend is the Berry Lips. I love the berry colors. I've always been a huge fan of purples, so shades like boysenberry have my vote for sure. 

And just for fun, we're hosting a beauty giveaway here at 2justByou Blog! 



It's been awhile since we did any sort of beauty post, and watching Moms' Night Out made me realize that it's been forever since I've gotten all dressed up and put makeup on! Seriously. I identified with that movie in so many ways. And so, we're happy to be giving away a Six Piece Essential Eye Set by ecotools, a Brown Smoky Eye Mineral Shadow set by Madison Street Beauty (includes shades: Espresso, Cacao & Hot Chocolate), and a 100% natural Lip Shimmer in Fig by Burt's Bees (that's a $28 total retail value!). Whether you're a mom or not, every girl deserves a night out!



What's more, if the winner chosen is a blog follower on bloglovin, a facebook fan, twitter follower, AND IG follower (must be ALL FOUR & winner will be verified), we're throwing in four of our favorite mineral eye shadow shades (Toasted Coconut, Champagne, Opal, Carnation) from Madison Street Beauty, an eye shadow primer, and a bronzer (retail value over $30). How's that for an extra-added?

Giveaway is open worldwide and ends on October 4th, 2014 at 11:59 pm, EST.


So tell me, what would you do on a night out to yourself???

Much luck to all of you!
