Welcome to my blog, Rebekahlynn.ca (formerly Lipstick & Lullabies)! My name is Rebekah and I am a 34 year old wife and mother of 2 wonderful children: Bobby – our rambunctious, adorable 7 year old boy and Cordelia – our 3 year old princess. My husband’s name is also Bobby, so sometimes my stories can get a little confusing, but I try to do my best to differentiate between the two! (my son is the 5th Robert, so when Robert 2 – 5 are in the same room, it is extremely entertaining!) We’ve been together for almost 13 years and will be celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary in May.
I’m also a product junkie… and thought a great way to justify my beauty splurges would be to blog about them! My mother jokes that she forced me to get a job as a teenager because she couldn’t afford to pay for my makeup buying habit anymore. It’s only gotten worse since becoming addicted to Pinterest and being introduced to Sephora – A.K.A My Grown-Up Candy Store.
I started this blog partly because I was home for a year with both my babies and needed something to help keep me connected to the outside world, and also because my bestie Tiffany over at TLCShopping looked like she was having so much fun with hers I wanted to join in too! (if you’re in the Winnipeg area and need a personal shopper – please check her out!)
Some quick info about my hair and skin:
I am pretty fair skinned with yellow undertones – NC20 (MAC) / 5Y05 (Sephora)
I live in Alberta, Canada which is generally a dry climate – minus the odd humid day in the summer
Pre-Cordelia my skin was very clear, from the time she was about 6 months old until a year later as hormones started to return to normal I had very bad acne (and now scarring) on and around my chin.
My dark brown / black hair is thick but fine and very straight
To anyone reading: thank you for coming by. I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I am enjoying writing it.
