Links & Loves & Thoughts


I love bronzer, I just don’t like it on me. I never came across one that I liked enough to keep in my makeup stash. We can say that I am extremely picky when it comes to bronzer. I don’t like looking orange or fifty shades darker or ‘oranger’ than the rest of my body, but this Too Faced Baked Luminous Glow Bronzer in Sweet Tea is gorgeous!


I have already gotten a good tan so far. I went from pasty white to a  golden brown. Naturally I burn then tan…then peel. So this summer my body has been like “ooohh yeah mama soak up that vitamin D,” and I have not burnt. So this bronzer adds a little bit more depth to a tan with out added orange color and the highlighter gives you a soft glow. Looks natural. This is definitely going to be my summer bronzer. I can’t get enough of it.

You can purchase the Too Faced Baked Luminous Glow Bronzer here at Ulta. I noticed that in the ULTA photo looks a heck of a lot darker than what it normally is. I would never have bought this based on ULTA’s photo, so it is quite deceiving.

Now onto Links: 

I am really starting to become a fan of Philosophy products found at ULTA. I have ultra sensitive skin so I am very picky about products I use.

My dream vacation well one of many. But I am dying to get to this beach. I have heard many great reviews on it and I have to go. Have any of you been there? If so please let me know or give some advice would be very much appreciated. I love to travel, if I had the money I would travel constantly.

If anyone is going to hawaii (the big island), email me (info under contacts) I have been there several times and can give you some good pointers.

Sophia and I are going to Daytona, Florida in September. I have not been to Daytona in a long time over ten years. I would love to try to swim with dolphins, anyone know where I can do that? Any fun activities for toddlers? I know we plan on going to St. Augustine for a half day or a whole day. We are not sure on the length of time. We will be staying at a timeshare resort.

Has anyone ever tried dehydrated dog food from Colorado? I have been wanting to try it out on Jimmy for about a year but never actually tried it. If you have please let me know your thoughts.
