Sun Safety from Sephora.

I am so excited to be on my way to LA for Total Beauty and their first beauty blogging summit. I know I will find at least a few minutes to dip my toes into the Pacific for the first time, and I have my sunscreen ready.

I wish I saw this kit a few days ago so I could have ordered it up in time. The kit I am speaking of is this beauty, Sephora's Sun Safety Kit.

This kit contains 11 travel-sized sunscreen and skincare for the face and body that are a definite must-have for the Summer season. And what a great way to try out a new brand before investing in full-size too.

In the great pouch are the following: Korres Natural Products Watermelon Sunscreen Face Cream SPF 30, Peter Thomas Roth Max Sheer All Day Defense Moisture Lotion SPF 30, DDF Daily Protective Moisturizer SPF 15,  Cosmedicine Medi-Matte Oil Control Lotion SPF 20,  Juice Beauty Green Apple Moisturizer SPF 15,  Murad Firming Bronzer SPF 15, Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion SPF 55 PA + + +, six single-use packs of MD Skincare Powerful Sun Protection Pads SPF 30, Clarins Sun Wrinkle Control Cream Ultra Protection SPF 30, Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer SPF 15, Tarte 24/7 Lip Sheer SPF 15.

Shop Sephora and Sephora.com for this $25 sun-spectacular kit. Separately, these beauties would run you $87.

Urban Heat from Prescriptives.

A great new Summer collection from Prescriptives is just launching on counters now. This is Urban Heat.

The face is lightly dusted with bronze for an all-over glow. Eyes are subtly contoured in shimmering earth tones punctuated by dramatic accents of bright azure and deep purple. Cheeks are naturally radiant in sun-kissed shades while lips are swept in ripe, lush tones for a fiery finish. Hot!

The Urban Heat Collection:

Colorscope Lip Gloss - Sophisticated and modern, Colorscope Lip Gloss glides onto lips for extraordinary shine and a sheer finish. The ultra-smooth, lightweight texture px_summer_gloss.jpgleaves lips feeling soft, moist and smooth. Wear alone or slicked over your favorite Colorscope Lipcolor to intensify shine or transform color to give lips a full look. Shades: Trendy (Y/O), Sporty (Y/O), Gutsy (R/O), Feisty (R/O), Giggly (R), Sassy (R), Stylish (B/R), Edgy (B/R).
 

Kohl Eye Pencil (Limited Edition) - A super-soft eye liner with great color pay-off defines, lines, colors and contours the eyes. It allows just enough playtime to achieve a smoky, smudgy look or a dramatically defined one. Shades: Blue Grotto and Purple Rain.

Colorscope Creamy Eye Color - A longwearing cream eye shadow that stays color-true all day long without creasing. This easy to blend formula in sparkling shades of gold and gunmetal can be customized as a soft sheen or layered with any Colorscope Eye Color as a base for multi-effects. Shades: Lychee (Y/O)and Smoking Gun (R).

Here To Stay 24-Hour Longwear Mascara - Lift and define lashes for up to 24 hours with this smudge-resistant, customizable formula. The ultra-comfortable formula is waterproof when worn alone or water-resistant over your favorite Prescriptives mascara…perfect for beating the summertime heat! Shade: Black.

Colorscope Lipcolor - A moisturizing, shiny and luscious formula in shades of mocha, bronze and shimmering plum. Shades: Majorcan Sand (Y/O), Chocolate Frost (Y/O), True Bronze (R/O), Berry Oodles (R).

The whole collection is gorgeous. And if you cave on just one thing, it has to be the new Kohl Eye Pencil. I am wearing it right now in Blue Grotto as it is the perfect Summer eye tool.  Well, you should probably pick up a new gloss or two (Sassy is my fave!) - and try the mascara or creamy lipcolor and shadow. There is so much here I like!

Shop at your local Prescriptives counter or online at Prescriptives.com.

Bring on the Heat!!!

Sixteen Candles by Beauty Blogger Tia Williams.

Who doesn't love a little chick lit? And when it just so happens to be written by a fellow beautiful beauty blogger, all the better.

The totally talented and super beauty Tia Williams of Shake Your Beauty, just published her second book in her It Chick Series. This is titled Sixteen Candles. This book leaves off where the first one ended.

"It’s the end of September, and our favorite Louis B. Armstrong Performing Arts School kids are feeling the drama. Skye’s turning 16, and her diva-licious party is being filmed for an episode of “Sixteen Candles” on MVN! Meanwhile, Tangie’s secret fling with senior stud Trey Stevens takes a deliciously juicy turn. Will CJ implode with jealousy? And how long can our favorite grafitti-obsessed bad boy keep his scandalous secret?"

We have to read it to find out. 

I am so excited to pick this up this week. I have a long plane ride coming up this week and my plan is to read this cover to cover. Then I will pass it along, with the first book It Chicks to my 12 year old daughter.

To read an exerpt of this book, check it out over on TeenReads.com.

Congratulations, Tia!
