I cannot believe that we are edging toward the end of September already. Seriously, this month is flying by. I have been just so busy that I feel time slipping away. And when I get busy like this, my mind is always going and I don't sleep well. Ahhh... it's a vicious cycle. 

 Fenty Beauty by Rihanna

I am happy to report that our condo in Florida sustained little damage from Hurrican Irma. My heart aches for those who lost everything or are dealing with damage. We have friends who had some pretty significant damage and know a few people still without power. I have had enough of this weather situation and pray for no more hurricanes this season!

In beauty news this past week, we saw the launch of the long awaited Fenty Beauty by Rihanna. I could not wait to try a few Fenty Beauty items so I ordered some items from Sephora on launch day. I am really liking what I tried and will have a complete review of the items I bought soon. I'm thinking that I need to buy the Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Foundation after seeing it on Karen.

I'm obsessed with a good smokey eye but some times, ya know, the struggle is REAL. These tutorials make the smokey eye easy!

Did you know that there are specially designed pillowcases and pillows made for us beauty girls? Nancy has the 411 on what's hot and what's not. I personally LOVE the Pil-ookie Beauty Pillow

DId you hear? Mandy Moore is a new beauty brand ambassador and I think she is very well suited for her role!

Move over PSL, The Body Shop has a new Vanilla Pumpkin line and it is CALLING MY NAME!

Sometimes you need to just give yourself a mini-facial, don't you think? I've been a longtime fan of pixi Peel & Polish and have recently been smitten with Overnight Glow Serum and Beauty Sleep Cream to help top off my nighttime facial routine.

Kiehl's and Matthew McConaughey have joined up for Autism Speaks. 

The beauty brands have been dropping their holiday collections already — see how fast time is flying by - and I am already obsessed with Tarte's 2017 Holiday Collection

I'm Teri, your resident beauty expert. While I'm not playing with beauty products, painting my nails or shopping for makeup with my daughter who loves trying products with me, you will probably find me sneaking off to Florida with my husband of over 25 years or cheering on one of my three sons. I like baking, re-decorating, drinking tea, fussing with my flowers and facials.
