Happy Birthday, America!

One of the most beautiful things is our great country, the United States of America. And on today as we celebrate this special day, let us not forget those who have fought for us and to keep our nation free.

The Star Spangled Banner by Francis Scott Key 

O! say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming.
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming.
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

O! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: 'In God is our trust.'
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Bronzing Essentials - Easy as 1, 2, 3.

Summer makeup needs to be as easy as possible, right? Especially when you are wanting to get out and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. No one wants to be in front of the mirror perfecting their face. And that includes moi!

As bronzing is key for most of us, making the application beautiful and simple is key. Sephora's Bronzing Essentials can do just this.

Two multi-tasking products, plus the perfect brush to apply, with a perfect sized vinyl case to carry in your handbag or beach tote. The tri-color bronzing powder brick highlights you skin from cheeks and eyes to shoulders and even your décolletage. Brush it on all together with the great brush, or use the colors separately with an eyeshadow brush. Still easy, but possibly better for night when you want a more defined look. The shimmery peach-pink lipgloss is shiny, sweet, and a perfect color to go along with the bronzed face.

Personally, I need to add tinted moisturizer, my concealer/highlighter, and mascara but then I am done. I have it down to just about three minutes. Yes - Summer glowing, easy as 1, 2, 3.

Shop at Sephora for this great kit, which is just $30.
