Wow, it feels good to finally do an outfit post again! Hubbie and I made ourselves promise to do one on my one day off this week–and he had the whole location picked out. He had scouted out this place a while back, and told me he planned on taking me there the next time we shot my outfit. And although it’s been years (okay, a month) since my last outfit post, it feels good to get back in the style game with such a lush backdrop.Please Click To View The Full Post →

He was floored that I knew of her and liked her so much, since she’s not well known here in the U.S.)

Getting to Glowy

After a tweet I sent out saying I had discovered a great foundation routine for getting glowy, many of you asked what my secret was to attaining said glowy skin with makeup (since I don’t have naturally glowy skin–and in fact, most people don’t, unless you live in a rainforest, bathe in retinols, and eat antioxidants all day).Please Click To View The Full Post →
