Sun Sun Sun...Here it comes!

It's that time again...short sleeves, capri pants, skirts and a pair of snappy sandals. Here are my favorites in the "faux tan" department.
I actually just bought the Jergens Face, but I have been using the Jergens Natural Glow for a few years. It does have a slight scent, but nothing offensive. Since it is a lotion, it really is mistake proof. I have seen that C*stco is carrying it, which usually guarantees a good product.

These new versions of spray tan work so well. They too, are virtually "mistake proof". The spray is such a fine mist, you don't even need to rub it in. I have also used Coppertone's product and loved it as well.
(don't forget to wash your hands when your done...so you wont have the "tell tale" sign of "orange" hands)

New Header!

Since I started this new blog...I have come across some really great blogs that give me lots of inspiration. One of them is Brieanne at Vintage at Heart. I love to peek in on her blog and Etsy shop, and think she is full of talent. She recently had a giveaway for a new header and I won! I just love this beautiful vintage girl with the little bird...and thought it was perfect for this blog. Thanks Brieanne.

Favorite "Cheap" Beauty Things~

I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite and cheap beauty things.
This first thing is not so much "cheap", but lasts so long. Bare Escentuals Foundation. It is so easy to apply and literally feels like you are not wearing makeup, and the coverage is great!!
I have used LOTS of hair products over the years...from cheap to expensive. I started using the Sleek and Shine line of Garnier Fructis about 3 years ago, and love it. I use the shampoo, conditioner, smoothing milk, anti-frizz serum, and anti-humidity hairspray. Obviously I am a little "freaked" out about frizz!! I have very naturally curly hair and like to straighten it...these products really keep it "frizz and wavy" free...especially here in our "wet" climate. With all I do to my hair; coloring, blow-drying, and straightening I think these products have helped to keep my hair healthy.
The smell alone is my favorite of this Burt's Bees Cuticle Creme...but it also works great!!

These Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers are great!!! So far I have tried Watermelon and Nutmeg. The color is sheer, and they have a minty smell...and they moisturize at the same time!!

This next thing has been in my makeup bag for probably 20 years...I cannot remember a time when I didn't use Wet & Wild's lip liner #666 (yes, I wish it had a different number!) At $1.00 this is the best find!! The color is the perfect neutral, almost your lip color, and looks great with the shimmers above or just a little lip gloss. Love it!!
