Sun Kissed

There are so many options to safely look like you have been caressed by the sun.  Tanning beds are so over, the sun is our friend...but only for a short protected amount of time and who wants to look like you are 80 at 40?  Not to mention  the dreaded C-Word...Cancer.  No one wants that.  Fake baking is the way to go and with countless products on the market there is something out there for everybody:
 
 


1.  Bronzer body gel  2. Firm and Tan 3.  Bronze for less  4. Fake Bake Self Tanner 5. Whipped bronzer  6. Nars Blush/Bronzer Duo 



Stay safe friends

Loving Right Now:

This month has been one of discovery for me. Some discoveries little, some big. I for one did not know I had as much energy in me that I actually do have. Between two jobs, volunteering and the occasional evening out, (hey a girl's got to have fun right?) I have been trying to figure out how much caffeine will get me through my days, where all my time is going and more importantly-how the calendar says it's Spring and it's freezing out?!!

Oh well, it is what it is.  In the meantime, I stumbled across some pretty fabulous finds, in the midst of all this... Life.

This is what I am loving right now:



New recycled metal backsplash in our kitchen
and NEST candles - favorite pick: Pumpkin Chai
 
 


Fresh Sugar Lip treatment- I put this on every night and
in the morning my lips are hydrated and super soft
 
 


My new Zara loves...I will be pairing them with everything
 
 
 
Happy Spring...I guess?
Till next time

In Need Of...

A vacation, warm sunshine, sandy beaches.  A cool drink, a nice tan, the breeze blowing through the palm trees....can you almost feel it?  Me too.  I don't know where I feel like going though.  I honestly would be quite happy staying home and supporting the Jersey shore.  A little AC anyone?  I think I'm just ready for Summer.  Winter seems to be holding on...being very lax about leaving.  Doesn't it know that it's not wanted anymore?  It doesn't have to go home but it's got to get out of here! 

Either way - a nice long weekend would do me right, here or anywhere.  A little R & R, a little shopping, dining and sunning.  Countdown to Summer: 3 months, 3 days.  I'm ready to go.
I'd have these packed in my travel bag too:



 
1. A cute swimsuit   2. A dress to throw over my suit   3. A little cosmetic pouch that doubles as a clutch for dinner  4. A Beach bag  5. Sandals for everywhere  6. A slim watch for the heat
 
 
3 months and 3 days...
and counting

Beauty Boost (for less)

Glowing clear skin, luscious locks and pouty lips don't have to be for A-Listers only. You don't have to spend a lot either. Don't get me wrong, I love a good luxury product- and if it's worth it, I will spend!  But in a quick fix some drugstore buys will do just fine. These are some of my faves that I can find at my local Wegmanns and Target!:




 
1. A cool neutral tone for your tips  2.  A dry shampoo for those get up and go days  3. Wipes that remove makeup and don't leave behind a residue  4. The haircolor miracle that takes less than 10 minutes! 5. Boost your lashes with this mascara  6. A BB cream - better than tinted moisturizer   7. Keep your pout moist with this
 
 
 
Get Beautified!
