IT Cosmetics Face Disc Bronzer, Blush and Luminizer.

I am all about keeping it simple when it comes to makeup. When I saw this Face Disc that has a bronzer, blush and luminizer all in one, I knew I needed it. So yeah, I took it from my Mom!

The Face Disc is named Live,Love,Laugh Anti-Aging Vitality Face Disc   (I swear my Mom always has it on in the background) The name is a bit of mumbo-jumbo, and at my age I really don't care about the anti-aging ingredients. I care about a product that simplifies my too busy life and looks pretty on me. That, it does. These colors look beautiful on me!

Just look at how pretty it is. Never mind the fact that it is a HUGE palette of color.

I like that when I where these shades, they don't come off. Even if I go to the gym or go out for a run (which I try to do without makeup, but sometimes I don't have time to take off my makeup and reapply - that's a another story for another time) my face still looks bronzed. These powdered are waterproof and sweat-proof.

I use a bronzer brush to sweep the matte bronzer in the places the sun naturally hits my face - my nose, across my forehead my chin and up high on my cheekbones. Then I use a fluffier brush to apply the highlighter color where I want to glow. You know, the areas that I want to stand out.  I apply this to the planes of my cheekbones, up higher then the bronzer, but then sort of blend it into that. To apply the blush, I use my regular blush brush and gently swirl it on the apples of my cheeks. The look is me, only better and bronzed.

I hope you like my pictures.  I took a photography class last year and I hate boring pictures, so you'll probably notice my pictures will be taken in different places. Since I love the pretty pink and yellow flowers my Mom planted on the deck, I thought I'd use that as the background.

Live,Love,Laugh Anti-Aging Vitality Face Disc is from a brand called IT Cosmetics that regularly has shows on QVC. It is on sale for $38.00, but you have to think of it as 3 products in one.


Patriotic Nails.


Trying to find some inspiration for my nails for July 4th this week, I did a little search for just that: Patriotic Nails on Pinterest. Look at some of the red, white and blue designs I found.

When looking for things like this, Pinterest is much better than google, don't you think?

Luckily, I won't have to get all that creative because I am heading to Walmart to look for these Nail Rock Designer Nail Wraps.

For just $5.97, you get 16 wraps, a nail prep wipe, a file and cuticle stick. Too fun!

Have you tried these yet? If I find them I will be sure to update with pictures!


Gillette Venus Teams Up with Kendall and Kylie Jenner in a New Video Series. 


Come check out the Gillette Venus exclusive video series featuring Kendall and Kylie Jenner. The two sisters team up with Gillette to give fashion tips, advice, and to get input from teens like themselves. The series can be found on the facebook page of Gillette Venus.

Here is the Video:

Being that I am a HUGE fan of both Kendall, Kylie and Gillette Venus, I was very excited hearing about this brand new video series. The program which includes new videos and pics from Kendall and Kylie every month, gives teens great advice on fashion, beauty, and how to feel beautiful and be confident. It also gives teens a chance to connect with both Kendall and Kylie and give their opinion on questions that the Jenner sisters have. How fun!

On the facebook page you also have assess to fun extra videos were you get to see Kendall and Kylie in their everyday life, sharing experiences they've had being teens, being sisters, hobbies, and even giving tips on shaving.

In one of the videos both Kendall and Kylie share their experiences they've have had with shaving. They also shared their favorite products by Gillette Venus which are the Venus Embrace Razor ($7.99) and the Satin Care Passionista Fruit Shave Gel ($2.99), which happens to be one of my favorites as well. The biggest tip the sisters gave was to always use shave gel, which is something I definitely agree with. The Satin Care Shave Gel is perfect; it leaves your skin feeling silky, smooth, and comes in many yummy scents.

I look forward to seeing more of these videos from Kendall and Kylie and hearing more exciting tips they have on both fashion and beauty.



Hard Candy Glamazon Glow All The Way Face & Body Luminizer.


Last week, we played a bit of catch up since it has been like forever since I wrote her for my Mom. I promised her this write up because, oh my gosh, this is my summer find and savior for my skin.

I am blessed with olive skin and my Mom makes me put on sunscreen after my shower everyday. It is now a habit, but I still tan. Not on purpose.  I do spend a lot of time at the beach and pool hanging with friends and my skin gets a pretty golden tan color. Even when re-applying sunscreen. Knowing this, I make it a point to wear either a chic sun hat or when I am being a bit more casual, I just throw my hair in a pony and put on a baseball hat to protect my face. Sunglasses are a must too.

So, to get my face to glow in a pretty golden color, I wanted a self tanner and instant bronzer to give me the perfect color without getting all fussy and applying a ton of makeup before the beach.  I searched my Mom's stash (I am a very LUCKY girl) I saw this pretty golden tube from Hard Candy.

It is called Hard Candy Glamazon Glow All The Way Face & Body Luminizer. Yes, it is designed for body too, but I have only been using it on my face - and OMG, I am in LOVE and on my second tube!!! I keep one in my beach bag because it is just that essential.

This luminizer gives my skin the perfect golden glow when I put it on - shimmer and all.  It looks really pretty and I always get lots of compliments.  After when I wash it off, my face is a beautiful bronzed color that I trick everyone into thinking I got from being outside all day! Coupled with these Glow Pads that I am hooked on, my golden glow is stunning - without the sun.

Hard Candy Glamazon Glow All The Way Face & Body Luminizer is for sale at Walmart for $8.00 - a very cool price for a very cool product.
