Things I'm loving right now

Periodically I like to do updates on things that I'm loving at the moment. Some of the products I've already written reviews on but some have reached HG status! Tanwise bronzing mousse from Sally Beauty Supply. Yep I'm still using it, I'm on my third bottle since last March. I also use the facial tanning lotion from the same line but I mix it with my night lotion to make the color a bit lighter and natural looking on my fair skin.
Avalon Organics Vitamin C Cleansing Gel and Toner. I love this line! I can easily find it at Target and most Walmarts, it soothes the reddness in my skin and works well with my clarisonic. I love that it's formulated without all the parabens, SLS, etc.
Tarte Cheek Stain has been fantastic this summer, it's light and longlasting. I also like that I don't need a brush to apply it. This has been the color I've worn to all outdoor events like concerts and cookouts and it hasn't melted off yet!
My best friend makes the most amazing sangria. I'm hopefully going to get the proportions from her so I can share the recipe on my blog!
The kindness of strangers, err friends and family. We have had a great response since mom has been under the weather, visitors have brought fresh homegrown peaches, watermelons, apples, blueberries, field peas, green beans, tomatoes, and cucumbers. We have so much good food in our fridge it is ridiculous!
Korres. I love the whole line but the Wild Rose Foundation is a standout performer. Such great products, decent prices for Sephora, and formulated without all the perservatives that are supposedly awful for my skin.
Ice cream sundaes, this has been my splurge of choice this summer. Good-ness I love it! In fact I did a whole post on my love affair with vanilla bean ice cream.
I started using Aussie Awesome Volume Hair Spray a few weeks ago and it has excellent hold and gives my hair a boost. I love the smell and it seems to do fairly well with Carolina humidity.
Yum Diet Wild Cherry Pepsi! I tried this randomly a couple weeks ago and I could easily become addicted. This is a treat for me right now (whereas my Sprite Zero is a daily lunch staple).


  1. I've been doing the skincare challenge with Sephora and that's how I scored the Korres Wild Rose moisturizer. I usually don't stray from Benefits Dear John but this one has the potential to do it. Glad you like the foundation, I've been thinking about getting away from Bare Minerals due to the lack of coverage.

  2. Great suggestions. I am looking for skincare products that are paraben free so I will have to try the foundation that you mentioned. :)
