My Favorite Eyeliner: Maybelline Define-a-Line Eyeliner

Maybelline Define-a-Line Eyeliner Review |

I've been really wanting to share this review with you because it's a product I absolutely LOVE and I've never seen anyone recommend it before on any of the beauty blogs I read. It's a fantastic eyeliner that goes on smoothly, doesn't smear, comes in several nice, neutral shades--and costs less than $5.

Pregnancy: Week 23

Baby: The size of an ear of corn or a cantaloupe, about 11.4 inches long and 1.1 pounds. 

Weight: Gained about two pounds over the course of this week, three pounds total gained for pregnancy.

Maternity Clothes: I'll probably take this question off soon since it's pretty redundant. I do still have some regular tops I can still wear, mainly tanks and long-sleeved tees that I wear under maternity sweaters, but everything else is maternity these days.
