Autumnal Shades

It’s so great that Autumn is here. Too bad the summer is gone but the fall fashions and makeup shades are too beautiful. Winter shades are just as great. I really love the browns, reds, oranges of the fall fashions. They are cozy, warm and inviting. Beauty becomes softer and warmer too. What I’m really loving are the many cosmetics that are coming in all in one palettes. It’s wonderful to have eyeshadows, blush, mascaras and lip color all in one palette. Easy in the handbag and on the wallets. I’m definitely going to stock up on quality palettes. I saw that a few cosmetic companies offer them but i hope all do at some point.

Beauty of Yoga

Hi everyone. I wanted to do a small post today. I ran some errands today and stopped into some shops. I got some things that I’d been looking for for a while. Mostly some Lipsmackers. I loved them growing up. Especially the jumbo Smackers. I bought a trio with flavors Cherry Pomegranate, Cozy Cupcake and Strawberry Snowflake. I was so excited to find them. I was also able to get two items. The first is a lip gloss called Wet Shine Diamonds Liquid in Pink Carats. It matches the Sheer Raspberry that I finished. I think Almay discontinued the Sheer Raspberry Lipgloss. It was so pretty but maybe a little sticky but I still loved it.And secondly, Pure Concealer Blemish Treatment Stick in Light. I’m really happy to buy these things. I’m happy my skin is clear and in no rush to use any more Blemish treatments for awhile.
Finally, the Beauty of Yoga. I’ve been practicing Yoga on and off for about 2 years now. I love the feeling my mind and body experience during my practice. It’s part of an internal beauty that glows through to the outside. Try it and you might love it. Lord knows we all need stress relief.

A Sweet Day in the Life

FLOW14Today was very busy and I’m pretty tired but I wanted to talk about favorite scents. One of my all time favorites is the classic Chanel No.5. It’s so sophisticated and so memorable without being overpowering. I also love Lancome’s Tresor. It’s so beautiful and the design bottle is lovely on your dressing table. I guess scents tell something about the personality of those wearing them. I hope it says I’m beautiful, classic and unforgettable. Do you have any great scents to recommend? Comment below and let us know.FLOW14

Purchases without Guilt

LipstickI just got home from a little frugal shopping. I found some great things at the shops. I purchased a Physician Formula Color Eyes Cream Eye Shadow Stick in Champagne. It’s a really beautiful beige. It’s silky smooth and hypoallergenic. I also bought a small eyeshadow palate from LA Colors. It has a whole bunch of pastel colors. I also bought Maybelline Mineral Power powder foundation which i LOVE, LOVE so much. Finally, I bought a Burt’s Bees Lip Balm that I’ve been wanting to try. The whole point of my shopping excursion was to buy a brush holder and cosmetic bag. But no guilt here because I didn’t spend a lot. Here’s my latest article on ehow. Check it out.
How to enjoy purchases without guilt.

Relax and Renew

I just finished another article called How to Relax and Renew..
I hope you click and read it. I have links to others in my last post. I wanted to review a great product that I’ve been using. It’s called Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque. I have oily skin but this product is so great for acne. It’s great for pampering your face and it really helps to get the impurities out. In such tough times for everyone in the world, it’s so great to slow down and recharge your mind and body.
