I've been busy blogging in my head...just not here where you can read it. Just like I've been really busy in my pretend Pinterest world. I am so busy collecting amazing recipes that I am too busy to actually cook them. I am also in love with every single thing in my Dream Closet Board. I have so many amazing outfits to choose from I can't decide and therefore never leave my house...don't get me started on my Dream House and Fantasy Backyard Boards. Not to mention all the ridiculously awesome craft projects I've posted - I mean PINNED - to my I Can Do This Board....When I really have time to spare you will find me laughing at all the cute and funny things I pin on my Just Giggles board. I am not sure where the time in my day goes...I barely have enough time left to squeeze in Face Book, emails and Words With Frienemies. So I do apologize for not finding the time to share the Good Stuff here.
So Let's get to the sharing!! I've got lots of stuff to share just nothing to give away - even Oprah had to stop with all that. How is she anyway? Never have found that Oxygen or O channel. Speaking of channels - we switched to AT&T Universe and I have to tell you I LOVE it!!! All my fav shows and I can watch them anywhere in my house. I am so excited about that. Even better we kept our tv signal yesterday when tornadoes tried to blow us all in Dallas away...
Back to the stuff - in no particular order:
BB Creams - newest face stuff hitting the shelves here. Been a big seller in Asia for awhile. All the big lines are coming out with one. I've been using Garnier's Skin Renew BB Cream. BB stands for beauty balm. Think tinted moisturizer with extra benefits like sunscreen and line and pore minimizing properties.
Neutrogena Clear Face Sunblock SPF 55...I really like this because I can wear it under BB or base and it gives extra protection on days I am out in sun having fun. For body sunblock my new fave is Ocean Potion SPF 30 anti- aging. It smells amazing and gives your skin a little glow. Thanks LV for sharing this with me :))
For days you are having a breakout I ordered this next find online- LaRoche-Posay Effaclar Duo - dual action acne treatment. Worth the trouble and shipping - it works. Even better than several prescription lotions. I'd been having a little side effect to all the wonderful benefits of being on hormones. They do make you look and feel younger. They also can trigger acne. This product has really helped keep that under control. I do hate talking about zits cause the minute I do - BAM - big honkin zit.
New favorite mascara - Revlon PhotoReady 3D Volume...not crazy about 3D movies but this mascara is great. It thickens without looking like Tammy Faye Baker (RIP) and it doesn't flake off during the heat. It also washes off without removing your eyelashes. Each and every one of those is precious. Especially if you are growing them with Latisse. I have several friends using the knock off versions and they are very happy with the results.
Hoof Alive has saved my fingernails...due to thyroid problems my nails were a wreck. Constant peeling was driving me crazy. It was impossible to keep my favorite nail colors on so I just had to give up and go bare. Found this at Mikes Health Food Store (Love Love Love)...I'm sure it has an interesting story involving horses but all I cared about was my nails. Finally! The splitting has stopped. This stuff works and smells amazing. I keep little jars everywhere and just rub it on and my nails and cuticles look the best ever.
My other life changing find at Mike's came from Dr. Oz and Mike is having a hard time keeping it stocked. Raspberry Ketones. Just google it. Bottom line - I am down 6 lbs. and that includes Spring Break week - about half of that without changing my diet. Even when I over eat & drink it doesn't show up on the scale. Loving that.
More Magazine...In case you are thinking I'm an obnoxious know it all - I'm not. I just love reading More Magazine. And I love sharing things I love with you. April was full of great ideas and I was so excited to see some of my fav things mentioned. Great tips for women of all ages. My favorite eye pencil Urban Decay 24/7 gunmetal was mentioned in Tips in Your 50's. I also use an illuminator under my eyes most days instead of concealor. It doesn't cake up in fine lines. On days when bags are really bad, I do use a concealor but just on bottom of eye socket/top of cheek bone. This works better than too close to the eye. My cream blush is by Clinique Blushwear Cream Stick in Black Honey. A lot of companies are coming out with glosses with staying power...I love gloss and Rimmel has one called Stay Glossy that is glossy without being sticky and no icky smell. Not big on smelly glosses. Not sure it lasts all 6 hours just cause I tend to reapply out of habit.
And that's all I have for today. Time to go to my real closet and move the mounds of clothes around. No wonder I'd rather stay in my Pinterest Dream Closet.
