Update on The Fragrance Fanatic!

I just wanted to let you know that not only does our sister blog, The Fragrance Fanatic have a new look, it has a new web address.

The new address is


You do not need to add the blog extension to get there now. In fact, if you do, you will get a page error. So please update your bookmarks to the new address.

Hope you like the new look. And if you are not reading over there yet, what are you waiting for? My sister Cindi is doing a great job sharing all of her fragrance obsessions. She writes not only about perfume, but scented bath and body products, men's fragrance, candles, and home fragrance - just to name a few. And she writes with a real girls perspective, not from a perfumista point of view. I know you will love it!

Do please let me know what you think.

Turn Up the Heat with LORAC's Hollywood Heat Set.

I was lucky enough to have a sneak peek at my brand spanking new local Sephora. I am so thrilled that the beauty authority will be just about 10 minutes from me, which is much better than the one I had to travel to that is almost a 1/2 hour away. As I got my peek, one of the gals setting up the store was putting out this set from LORAC that I just need.


Unfortunately, I was not able to purchase this or anything else as the store is not yet officially open.  But let me say that this Hollywood Heat Set is at the top of my list. 

The beautiful bronzed bag contains the following LORAC poroducts:
Bronze Bombshell Eye Shadow Trio
Hot & Spicy Blush/Bronzer Duo
TANtalizer Body Bronzing Luminizer
Mocktail Flavored Lip Gloss in Tropical Dream

As I am already in love with TANtalizer, so I know this travel sized tube will come in handy. I use this super sweet smelling bronzy lotion on my legs whenever I am dressed up a bit in the Summer. The lotion leaves my legs a little more bronzed and glowy, with a beautiful sheen. The shadows look divine for they are perfect for a bronzed Summer look without looking overdone or too made up. I cannot wait to try the blush and bronzer duo either. - they look to be my perfect shades. And, any lip gloss addict has to want that Mocktail Lip Gloss - and that includes me. Doesn't Tropical Dreamy look and sound, well, dreamy?

This set is exclusive to Sephora, so that is where you need to pick up the set. It sells for $35, which is a great price for these beauties.

Summer Time!

It is finally (unofficially) Summer. Summer is probably my favorite season, except for when it gets above 85 degrees. But I love the sunshine and spending so much time outside - with friends and family at the beach and at the pool, eating out - and just feeling overall better.

Just as our clothes allow for the heat, we must change the products and type of products as well as our colors to adjust for the warmer weather too.


My entire beauty routine changes up for the Summer. My moisturizers are lighter, sunscreen is applied in higher dosages, faux tanning is an almost everyday necessity, and not just my makeup colors change, but the amount and type of makeup I wear changes for sure.

With this unofficial start of Summer, stay tuned for my new product recommendations and reviews for the warmer months. 

Does your beauty routine change up during the warmer months? What do you differently?
