My Review of Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15

Originally submitted at

Anti-aging formula combats premature aging and protects against sun damage while leaving skin radiant and moisturized. The tinted color evens skin tone for a natural look.

Great bang for the buck!

4out of 5

Pros: Noncomodegenic, Easy To Apply, Blends Well, Lightweight, Goes On Smoothly, Good Pigmentation

Best Uses: Light To Medium Coverage

Describe Yourself: Budget Buyer

Skin Tone: Fair

I bought this in Ivory. My husband and I recently took a weekend trip and I brought this with me on the trip instead of my usual foundation to save space in my make-up bag. It provided lightweight coverage, went on easily, and was surprisingly pigmented. I had it in my mind that this would either be too much of a moisturizer or too much of a foundation. Turns out it is perfectly in the middle which makes me very happy. I used this with ELF’s Mineral Booster and a little concealer and my skin looked good all day.

The Dry Skin Blues

I have had dry skin my entire life. Fighting the flakiness has been something I’ve been doing for as long as I can remember.  The only cleansing option available to me as a child was bar soap. When I was a preteen soap makers started making liquid soap, or body washes, that were a little more moisturizing. Still, even after making the switch from bar soap to body wash my skin was dry, dry, dry. After showering my skin is parched no matter what kind of soap I use and I need to slather myself in lotion.

A few days ago I posted on Twitter that I wanted to leave body washes behind. (more…)

It’s Been a Long Time

Wow, I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything in over six months. Can I still call myself a blogger if I don’t blog? (more…)

The New Miss Delaware is Very Inspirational

Kayla Martell, the newly crowned Miss Delaware, who is headed to the Miss America pageant has Alopecia Areata  (AA) and is working towards raising awareness of her condition.

My hubs has had AA since he was in high school and has been shaving his head for the last 10 years. In the years before he and I met I guess his hair had fallen out and grown back a couple of times and he was always self-conscious about his hair loss. The last time his hair fell out it just never grew back so he decided to shave away any remaining hair. I tell him often that I think he is beautiful – in fact I think he is more handsome WITHOUT hair!

Ms. Martell is such a beautiful girl, both when she is competing with or without a wig and her story is very inspirational. I saw her this morning on Fox and Friends and she was great. I can’t find a clip of that interview but she’s been on the interview circuit and I found a clip of her on the CBS Early Show. Enjoy!

Howdy, Folks!

I’ve been seriously neglecting things around here since starting my new job and to be honest I’m almost embarrassed to call myself a blogger since I haven’t been doing much of it lately. Let’s just say that while I’m thankful to have a job that’s keeping me busy and earning me a paycheck I am truly missing the free time that I had previously enjoyed. (Insert deep sigh here.) What’s that saying about having your cake and eating it too? I guess I can’t have it both ways, huh?

I’m going to work as many hours as I can in the next few months until classes start back up again in August. Then I’ll be taking 3 classes at school and working part-time – my free time will be much better arranged than it is now because right now I don’t have a set schedule. Once classes resume in the Fall things will get settled down and I’ll get back into a routine again. Life will be swell. (Insert deep sigh here.)

So … I’m not going to end this post with promises of more frequent updates. Let’s leave things with a pledge that any posts I make between now and the beginning of classes in the Fall will be more meaningful and thoughtful.

Memorial Day

Today is Memorial Day and as many of us head off to cook outs and gatherings with friends and family to enjoy a three day weekend I feel it’s important to take a moment to remember what this day is all about which is remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

Please take a few moments today to reflect on the brave men and women who have given their lives to allow us to live our lives in safety and freedom in the greatest country in the world.

Who is #3?

Ok, spooky thought but I just read on Yahoo that Dennis Hopper died of cancer today and yesterday Gary Coleman died. Don’t “they” always say that these things come in threes? Who is the next celebrity to meet with the Grim Reaper? Brett Michaels? Or maybe you could look at Dennis Hopper as #3 since Art Linkletter passed away on Thursday. Hmm …
