Yes, I am back and I know it’s been a while! I’ve been quite busy and I hope not to be away this long again! That being said, I have had an amazing summer and wanted to share some new beauty and health products I have incorporated into my daily routine.
I recently turned 46, (yikes) and I noticed my skin was just not looking it’s best. In fact, it was looking dry and dehydrated. I started exfoliating once a week and it still didn’t seem to really help, until I came across this beauty in a bottle. L’Oreal’s Age Perfect Cell Renewal Oil, this oil is amazing, 4 drops day and night is all you need. This oil has really helped my skin look rejuvenated and fresh, with oils such as Evening Primrose Oil, Lavendar and Citronella, to name just a few, add a fresh scent and non-oily feel to my skin. I apply this on my face in the morning and evening after washing my face. This is a must try for anyone dealing with dry skin.

My next favorite product is nails and hands related, of course. In the summer and in the winter months I find my hands get so dry, I do tend to wash them frequently, so by having these two with me every where I go helps keep my hands and cuticles soft and supple.
Burt’s Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle cream and hand cream. I absolutely LOVE these two together, they really help keep my hands from drying and my cuticles from forming those pesky hang nails. Having regular manicures also help keep your nails healthy and beautiful.

Nail polish is an obsession of mine, at one point I had over 300 bottles of polish so it’s no surprise that this summer I choose two colors that I have worn all almost very day, both are from Essie polish, Find me an Oasis and Private Weekend.
Find me an Oasis a a very light blue that is perfect for those freshly manicured nails, whether they are long or short, the color is amazing.

Private Weekend is a perfect white with a little shimmer, it gives your nails that perfect shimmer and glow and perfect no matter the time of year.

I am loving these colors, they go with just about anything, you can’t go wrong with Essie!
My newest find is for all you makeup lovers out there! I follow so many makeup artists on Instagram and I have picked up so many tips and new makeup products to try, but this one by far is one of my favorites, it’s inexpensive and a perfect drug store buy. L’Oreal’s Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation. I love this makeup because it stays on all day without looking like it’s melted off, even on the hottest of days. If you have dry skin, I would not recommend this for you without a conditioning primer because of it’s matte base. I apply this with a damp beauty blender and it goes on like butter. I have purchased many different types of foundation and paid a lot more for them and some did not come as close to the finish as this foundation, make this a pick up your next visit to Target.

Now, if you are like me and collect a TON of lip glosses and lipsticks, well then your in for a treat! I recently got the new NYX Cosmetics Liquid Suede Lipsticks and they are lovely. If you love matte lipsticks like me, then these will be a part of your makeup collection. They glide on smooth and dry to a matte finish. The colors are pretty amazing as well and they stay on all day, a side note, I usually take off my lipstick with makeup removal clothes, they tend color stain your lips. Ulta just announced they will be available in their stores soon, so stop in and check them out the next time you see an Ulta, you won’t be sorry!

A friend of mine, who I will say is not only beautiful on the outside, but is equally beautiful on the inside always has amazing tips. I love following her on IG and FB, she is a holistic living specialist and has a lot of great advice to feeling and looking better from the inside out. I started adding Magnesium to my daily diet to help aid with fatigue and stress. Natural Calm by Natural Vitality has really helped in managing this. I add 2 teaspoons to warm water every day and sip it like a tea, it not only helps me fight my fatigue issues, but it helps with stress I may be feeling and helps my sleep patterns level out so I can have a good night’s sleep and feel rested. Our bodies need magnesium every day to help us with muscle and and nerve function as well as keeping our bones strong as we age, doing this daily will make a huge difference in how you feel and it tastes yummy!

Last, but certainly NOT least, sunnies! I have fallen in love with these sunnies I have gotten from Quay Australia (pronounce as Key), they have become my favorite place to get all my sunglasses and are the perfect accessory no matter the season! I plan to purchase more from them, the delivery is usually within a week, coming all the way from Australia and they are amazing!
