Tinted

I don’t normally wear much makeup. Why? Cuz I’m lazy most of the time ūüėČ There are however a few things I can’t stand when I’m not wearing makeup…

1) I always look super washed out in pictures, oh and it never fails that someone wants to take pics when I have no makeup on, never. 

2). I live at the beach so in sunny weather I’m always wearing sunblock,¬†which makes me look even more “washed out” than before.

So, when I saw This Blog¬†Post, I went out the next day and bought…
Dr Wexler SPF30 tinted

Patricia Wexler M.D. Daily Defense Anti-Oxidant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30 ($30 @ Bath and Body Works)

I love it, it’s¬†really¬†light and doesn’t cake on like liquid concealer. It’s just a nice little “tint”. Also it’s great because a little goes a long way, I use about a pea sized amount for my whole face.

The only con is that it leaves me a bit shiny, so I just brushed some of my “Bare Escentuals, Mineral Veil” over it and was good to go!

 

Till next time!

Blogger Style Inspiration #1

So, I’m going to start a new series showing a blogger who’s style inspires me. It might be just one of their outfits, their hair, makeup… who knows… I’ll try to do this weekly so keep an eye out.

First up…

STYLE DIGGER¬†– Poland, This is Joanna and only a tiny bit of her blog is in English. She is a stylist. She has such a unique way of mixing things up and makes her style seem effortless. I love how she wears¬†this sweater¬†and I am now totally inspired to find something similar. She is also so great at accessorizing, which I need a lot of help with… such great style…

DIY Shredded Tee

I finally took a pic of the back of my¬†“diy tee” from my last post. I love it so much! It was so much fun to make and it only took me a couple hours. I went to “5 for $10” by my house and bought a bunch of kids Large tees to use. I like the way they fit once their done being pulled apart. I’m gonna try to make¬†a cropped version next. I’m thinking bright pink might by fun…

Long…..

Once again my week has been a bit crazy… I can think of like ten things I should be doing right now… Oh well!

The rundown of Memorial weekend:

We celebrated my step-moms birthday Saturday night, HUGE party with a band, dancing, taco bar, bartender¬†and just having a grand ol’ time. The next day was the “relaxing by the pool BBQ” with volleyball and plenty of¬† beer and sunbathing. I took the most amazing nap from like 4:30 to 6, just lying¬†in the sun.

Monday was Nicole’s birthday, I¬†got her THIS.

Forever 21 has THE GREATEST “american apparel esque” tees right now… I bought four! I also bought a floral skirt and a ring but guess what! I dropped my bag at dairy queen!!!!!! It is gone forever! I was and still am SO bummed! I decided I’m going back cuz I need those tees, and at $5 each I’m going to get one in every color!

That night we saw Star Trek, I was on the edge of my seat the whole time, at one point my hubby was actually on the edge of his seat leaning forward with his chin on his hands… adorable. He’s a trekky and he didn’t even know it. Anyway, I really recommend it…

One more thing, I finally DIYed a shredded shirt, and finished it. It only took me two hours! I’m wearing it in the pics below except I can’t find the pic of the back. I will update with it later.

 

It was a great weekend, can’t wait to get off work and start the next one!

Post Update

I just went back and updated¬†THIS POST, because I realized I gave you all the wrong link to my friend Graham’s travel blog.

Remember, he’s the one cycling frm Los Angeles to Argentina for 7 months, he’s already in Ensenada Mexico! I’m so glad that he, and his bike, got through TJ safely…

Check out his blog HERE.

 

Ciao

Prom and 1/2 of mother’s day

A little late but here are some pics from Mother’s Day weekend. Chelsie, one of my sisters, went to prom so Saturday evening consisted of getting her all ready to go. Then on Sunday I stayed on at my dad’s house for the first half of Mother’s day.

I say the “first half” because I have my mom(Kristy)¬†and my step mom (Berta). The “first half” was with Berta and that evening I made dinner for my mom(Kristy) and step dad (I got no pictures of the “second half” because I suck like that…)

 

P.S. This is gonna be a super long post…(eesh took me all day, taking breaks from¬†work)

 

So here’s Chelsie, “Chels” for short…
