Fresh Golden Summer (Tutorial)

Since it is the first day of summer I wanted to share a light, fresh and quick look for summer with you. This is a great look for summer all the makeup is light. I mix a facial moisturizer with SPF and my favorite foundation for light coverage and sun protection. This saves from spending money on a separate tinted moisturizer with SPF. I tight line the eyeliner to keep it light from melting or smudging in the heat and sweating.

Products used
-Urban Decay Primer Potion in Greed
-Urban Decay Naked Pallet, Buck, Naked & Virgin
-Revlon black eyeliner
-Maybelline Falsies Mascara  
-Wet & Wild Cream Eyeshadow pencil
-Cover Girl Naturelux foundation, mixed with SPF facial moisturizer
-Maybelline mineralized finishing veil, translucent
-Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in tipsy
-Benefit 10 Box, Highlighter
-Bourjois Bronzing Powder
-I Love… Strawberry Milkshake Lip gloss.

Almost lost my pants! (get fit week 6)

So it's been A good week in healthy land. I have been eating healthy at lunch at work with fruit and veggies, and eating sensible dinners. Go portion control! I found out 2 days ago that squats are my enemy. I am still paying for them, well being way out of shape is more like it. I feel the burn, and the feeling I might not get back up after crouching down. never the less I'm going to stick to it. Strength training is making a comeback. My right arm is so week after this winters fall and messing up the tendons. I had been too afraid to over work it so when I started using the 5lb weights again it was killer. I think I'm going to start going to the gym with a friend. When there is someone to work out with it's always more motivating.

It all seems to be paying off. Weighed myself this morning and I'm down 3lbs. And to top it all of I come home and put shorts on that I bought two months back and they are falling off of me. This is good that I'm shrinking but bad that i just bought all new summer cloths 2 weeks ago that might not fit by the end of the summer. The price you pay to be healthy.

May Favorites

Here are some beauty products that I was really digging for the month of May. I'm a little late on this one. I got a little excited and side tracked with my swap.

What I Got In The Mail

I have recently made friends with a lovely girl named Donna from the U.K. through YouTube. I left a comment on a video of hers asking if she knew if they sold a bronzer she showed in her video in the U.S. They don’t, but Donna had suggested doing a swap of products that we wanted to try but could not get in our country. We both agreed and have been corresponding back and forth for the past month setting the details and finding out what the other person was interested in trying, and their likes and dislikes. It’s like pen pals for the 21st century. The whole proses has been a blast, from shopping to the best part making a new friend. I hope that we’ll be able to keep in touch and become better friends.

My package

unwrapped, and my cat was supper interested in it.
