Acqua dell’Elba…

  Whenever I’m away on vacation as a treat for myself I buy something that is strictly available within the region I’m traveling. While I was in Siena and walking up and down Via Banchi di Spora, I kept smelling this wonderful scent every time I walked by this mysteriously calm looking store named Acqua Dell’Elba. After awhile I realized that they spray a scent out on to the street and it smelled like clean fresh breeze and ocean. I couldn’t help but close my eyes and think of walking on a warm sandy beach.

Blog Love – All Lacquered Up

I came across a blog the other day…  all about nail polish! All Lacquered Up  is a blog created by Michelle, a self-proclaimed nail polish fanatic who blogs about the latest and greatest in nail trends. She blogs from the back stages of New York Fashion Week, attends previews of new nail color collections and shares valuable information with her readers.  The absolute best part of her blog is her “swatches.” She paints the newest colors on her nails herself and share pictures with her readers. The results are amazing and informative since you can see what the latest nail polish looks like on someone’s actual hand. She also reviews the quality of the polish and gives out great advice on how to give yourself a good manicure. I can’t post any images from her blog right now but hopefully I’ll get permission from her soon and I will update this post once I have the pictures. In the mean time, check out the blog: http://www.alllacqueredup.com/ E

A tinted moisturizer, I was finally free of nasty foundation that left my skin feeling all gross and nasty!!! But unfortunately after all this time my local go to beauty store has discontinued selling this product, leaving me all depressed and upset. I wasn’t sure about where I was gonna start my search for a new foundation/tinted moisturizer. It’s such a long tedious process, it’s almost like trying to find the perfect pair of JEANS!!!! (Yay for BLANK JEANS,  since my search for at least jean pants are over!) Going back to foundations and such, I ended up going and trying out different brands and I think I finally found the perfect product. Its creamy but light, it applies well but it’s not too thick, it covers but still looks super natural. …
