You might be wondering why a skin care blogger is talking about fashion. I believe they both accomplish similar things by making you look and feel more beautiful. With that said, I love fashion and when someone tells me my outfit looks “cute” it really makes me smile. Lately I haven’t been hearing much of that. With a several….ahem…more pounds to lose from my pregnancy not all of my “cute” outfits are looking so cute. And as much as I love fashion it has never come natural for me. I know what I like when I see it, but have always had a hard time putting it together. I am the girl who has to buy exactly what the manequin is wearing-piece by piece.
Lucky for me, my friend Tracy has created a new blog dedicated to sharing her amazing eye for and love of fashion. Every time she posts I want the entire look down to her nail polish. The photos are taken so artfully with beautiful backdrops and Tracy herself is stunning.
Oh and this is not a site dedicated to clothing that is impossible to afford, some of her favorite finds are so reasonably priced you will find it hard to believe. If you are like me you might wonder how she finds these items-I never do when I am shopping at H & M! Click on her services section-she will even make a housecall to help you find what works in your own closet or take a personal shopping field trip.
You will love the site, love Tracy and her passion. I am certainly inspired!
If you know me at all, you know that I have been fighting with my curly hair all of my life and most of the time I lose. My friend Courtney told me to buy this product last year when I was taking pictures down by the water. I really liked the results when I tried it, you can see the information for yourself straight from her blog. Just click on the image below:
I get asked about organic and natural product lines all the time. I found a brand I really like that uses mostly organic and what you would call natural ingredients. 100% Pure is a face and body line using many plant based ingredients and does not contain parabens, sulfates, or fragrance.
So far I have tried a few of the body products and I will report back on the facial items after I try them out. The price point is also very good, one of the most expensive items costing around 35 bucks. You can find the products at Beauty 360 and also on the company website. Try the COCONUT NOURISHING BODY CREAM, super creamy and smells just like summer.
I am a huge fan of being tan and not so huge a fan of wrinkles and skin cancer. I have had to come up with ways to get a bronzy skin without spending hours under the sun and have tried a lot of the products on the market. I have to say there is quite a few I like-“fake tans” have really come a long way in the past five years.
I recently tried the Dr Denese tanning glove and I loved the result. The color was really pretty and natural looking, the glove made the application process easy because of its size as well. This one even has a peptide complex included. If you have someone handy to tan your back side it is most helpful. The only challenge is the product is colorless so you do not know where to fill in the spots-be careful here.
It helps to do the following first:
Fully exfoliate your body in the shower
Skip the body lotion before application
Let it fully dry before putting on tight clothing (only takes a few minutes)
You can purchase 12 gloves for $37.00 (regularly $42.00)
And now you can enjoy your healthy glow!
It has been one year today since I started sharing my love for beauty and skin care with you! If there are any topics you would like me to discuss, feel free to leave a comment! I look forward to many more!
I heart skin care
