Ivonne Stacy's House of Turquoise

Hola Hola and Happy Friday,

As you know, my husband and I sold our first home almost a year ago. I cannot believe it's already been that long. We have started house hunting again, but OH MAN... The market is rough and there is no inventory.

We are praying for the right home, at the right price and I know the Lord won't let us down. 

Also, I finally had a chance to work on our old home pictures and create a video.
I love home decor!! (A lot!) For fun, I love to walk around Homegoods and browse at all the home decor.

I am new to making videos so bear with me. The video is a compilation of images from my first home. Enjoy!

Have a great week.

BELIZE {Travel Diary}

Beautiful BELIZE!
Don't worry if you don't speak Spanish because their official language is English. They also speak Belizean Creole and obviously, Spanish too. 
I didn't know this until we parked in the middle of the ocean, but Belize does not have a port. 
There waters are too shallow for the large cruise ships, so they park off the coast of Belize.Tender boats pick you up from the cruise ship and take you to Belize. Then from Belize bring you back to the cruise ship. The ride each way is about twenty minutes. 
Tender boat parking station. 
The souvenirs in Belize are NOT cheap. It's actually pretty pricey. If you want to buy souvenirs- wait till you get to Mexico. It was the cheapest of all three destinations. 
When we arrived on Belize land, we asked around for an affordable excursion. We opted for a round trip to Goff's Caye with a guided snorkeling trip and all you can drink Rum Punch- $40. (I don't drink but my Dad enjoyed it :) Goff's Caye is an unspoiled little island, only 1.2 acres. You can walk from one side to another in a few minutes. 
The sea was a little rough that day, so snorkeling was not the best. 
I will say that the water was beautiful. You can simply layout and stare at it all day. 
For $12 bucks you get two lobster tails, arroz moro (rice with black beans), corn and some lime. OMG! That is the best lobster I have ever had in my life. I am not a huge fan of lobster because the texture is so chewy, but this was so GOOD. Fresh and not even close to being chewy. 
My bathing suit is from Target.
My sunglasses are Ray Ban and my dress is from Agaci. You guys know I love a good bargain! I found this dress for only three dollars. Woot woot!
And that my friends was Belize. 

Have you guys visited Belize before? Let me know in the comments :)

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Spring BLOOM + Face Paint

Hi Loves,

I came across this beautiful picture of a model with a flower crown in a magazine and it really inspired me.
 It looked so fresh, beautiful and reminded me that Spring is just around corner.
I wanted to do my own version and also share with you my make up for this impromptu DIY photo-shoot. 
I purchased the flower headband at F21 for about six dollars. Here is the one I am wearing and some other beautiful options:

Face Paint:
1. Foundation Infallible Pro-Matte (Loreal). It was my first time using it, and I loved it. The consistency was nice, not too thick and full coverage.
2. Covergirl powder all over my face.
3. Contoured my face and highlighted with Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour kit.
4. Eyeshadows from my Naked 2 palette. 
5.  Curled my eyelashes and added my fave- Telescopic Shocking mascara. I am also wearing Ardell's Natural Lash. 
6. Then I concealed my dark circles with The Body Shop concealer and my Maybelline concealer.  
7. Added winged liner with with Infallible The Super Slim liquid eyeliner. 
8. Gave life to my eyebrows with Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow pomade in Dark Chocolate.
9. Liquid Lipstick: Dose of Colors- Merlot
Wow! I received this lippy from my sister-in-law for Christmas and it is amazing. The formula is smooth and matte. It is not drying and lasts forever and ever. LOVE it!!! 
Don't forget to tag me if you have your own impromptu photo-shoot too!

Have an awesome rest of the week.
