Lasting lip color

Pucker up baby.
We all love a good lip. Lipstick and lipgloss are in just about every girl’s cosmetic bag.
Maybe you prefer lipstick because you feel that the color lasts longer than a gloss. Maybe you prefer lipgloss because you love the shine.
What if you could have the best of both worlds?
Well, I have good news for you – You totally can!
Of course you can always put your favorite lipstick on and then top with a clear gloss but there is another option.

Lancome has the answer and it’s called La Laque Fever!
La Laque Fever provides ultimate color and lip shine and it lasts for HOURS.
So you’ll get the color and the shine you want. It’s a gloss that works as a lipstick and it seriously gets the job done.

I’m in love with it. Really.

Crème de la crème

We have all heard about the importance of moisturizing our skin.
We could all reap the benefits from hydrating the largest organ of the human body.
Yes, your skin is an organ. It’s not just there to look pretty, it is the great protector.
Its outer layer is thin, stain-resistant and waterproof. It can hold moisture in as well as keep unwanted water out. It’s No. 1 enemy if you could believe it, is the sun.
Fine and coarse wrinkles are seen on sun damaged skin, which is why we must moisturize. Not only does dry skin appear unattractive, it can also cause stinging and overall pain. Hydrated skin makes us feel healthier and more youthful by preventing premature lines and wrinkles.
I have combination skin. My T-zone is greasy, while the rest of my face tends to be very dry. I set out to try three different night moisturizers and here is what I found.

Boots No7 Lifting and Firming Night Cream

Price: $20.00
Where : Target

Pros: Light weight
Pleasant scent

Cons: slightly greasy
Residue stayed on my fingers after applying, causing my eyes to sting

Overall : I really felt that my skin look much better in the morning. I don’t have very many wrinkles to speak of, but my skin looked brighter and firmer in the morning. I made it a point to take my contacts out first or else washing my hands didn’t remove enough of the lotion, and my eye would sting.

St Ives Collagen Elastin Face Moisturizer

Price: $5.97
Where: CVS, Target , any drug/ convenience store

Pros: Great value
pleasant rose like scent
refreshing while applying

Cons: heavy cream

Overall: While I’m a St Ives fan, I can’t say I noticed any difference in the AM. The cream was heavy on the face, and left my face too shiny. Perhaps those with very dry skin would benefit from this cream, but my combination skin found this cream was just too much.

Olay Age Defying AntiWrinkle Replenishing Night Cream

Price: $12.00
Where: CVS, Target , Ulta, any drug/ convenience store

Pros: light weight cream
No notable fragrance

Cons: ****

Overall: This was my favorite night cream. It was light enough to not feel greasy, but had enough moisture to make me feel hydrated. In the morning there wasn’t any residue left, but my face felt and looked great. I used this in combination with a daytime moisturizer with SPF 15 and by weeks end, I was satisfied with the overall texture and tone of my skin.

I would suggest everyone experiment with night creams. I have found a cream that makes my skin look and feel great. No woman should allow wrinkle to prematurely crawl across her face. A little work before bed time will go a long way in giving you years of healthy radiant skin.

Banana Republic

I have to admit, I don’t always shop Banana Republic, but their new fall collection definitely caught my eye!
I want all the new looks! The styles can go from 9am-9pm. Love the grey being matched with brighter colors and patterns.
Grey is the fall season’s hottest neutral this year! Whoever said wearing grey is depressing is wrong. BR hit the mark – great pallets, styles, fabrics, and fit. Check it out!

cookie shout out

I love them and you know you do too. Right out of the oven or cooled – my favorite dessert – cookies!
My husband had ordered David’s Cookies through one of the catalogs. He ordered 2 boxes of the frozen cookie dough – oatmeal raisin and double chocolate w/ peanut butter chips!
They are the perfect size cookies and bake in 12 minutes.
I’m eating one of the chocolate ones now actually =)
