April Showers Bring May flowers

I really enjoy the rain. It is soothing. Nothing compares to being indoors while it is raining hard.I especially like glancing out the window to watch the hues of the sky change. I usually find myself curled up with a blanket and a hot cup of soup while I watch the rain. The scent of rain seems to linger long after a shower.It is refreshing and pleasant. I provided some adorable rain gear below. Who said you can't look fashionable while  shielding yourself from the rain.

Tinted Moisturizer

Summer is almost here and chances are you will be spending a lot more time outdoors. Sometimes the type of activity you engage in while outdoors doesn't require the extensive coverage foundation provides. In cases like this, I recommend tinted moisturizer. Tinted moisturizer provides minimum coverage and can even be used with blot powder to create a great, simple look. I have tried Elf's tinted moisturizer and must say, for $3 it is pretty good. I use my tinted moisturizer with blot powder,lip stain and eye liner to create a look for the day. I think this is a great product to wear to the beach or a outdoor party.

It's Time To Flip Your Tassel And Toss Your Cap

The time has come for you to rejoice over all the hard work you put in over the years. As you you pick up your cap and gown, you think about the new adventures that await you and a sense of excitement over takes you.Suddenly, you realize you have several tasks to carry out, which includes finding something to wear to your graduation ceremony. 

Unless you are attending a graduation ceremony in the winter, you will most certainly want to wear something that is lightweight. A majority of people tend to graduate in the late spring or summer.As a result, you can expect to spend a lot of time taking pictures outdoors.With that being said, you want to wear something that you are comfortable in. I suggest you find a dress that fits good.The dress will fit under the gown perfectly.Try not to wear anything that is too fussy or extravagant. As for shoes, pick a pair that will not torture your feet.If you can handle wearing heels for long hours, go for it.If not, I suggest wearing a kitten heel or flats. The time of the ceremony may also influence the dress you choose. For evening or night ceremonies you may opt for a nicer dress as opposed to picking a casual one because you may go out to dinner after the ceremony.Morning ceremonies just require a casual dress.If you decide to wear a skirt, make sure it is shorter than your gown and go for a top that is simple, yet snazzy. Remember to enjoy the moment!

Glamorous Green Life - Earth Month

I meant to do this earlier in the month, but better late than never.This month is Earth Month, so I decided to do a post about organic beauty products, clothes and shoes.There are so many benefits associated with using organic products. Not only are we benefiting ourselves and our overall well being, but we help preserve the environment. Have any of you gone completely green? Or, have you partially committed  to a green lifestyle? Maybe you drive a hybrid vehicle or recycle. As I see it, every small effort is good. I included some snazzy pieces of organic clothing below.They are made from organic fabrics.I am really fond of the pants and dresses.

Here are a few brands and companies that carry/make an array of organic products: Burt's Bees, Ulta, Target,, physiciansformulaYestocarrotsSkinstoreBlissworldSephora and Juiceorganics. You can pretty much find an organic version of any beauty product now a days, which includes, but is not limited to: hand soap, shampo, conditioner, makeup, lotion, face wash and moisturizer, body wash, and sanitizer. I am a big fan of Burt's Bees products.I have used their lip gloss, hand lotion and several other products that came in a gift set I received. I highly recommend their products. All their products are made from natural ingredients.The lip gloss is a great moisturizer.I typically use it twice a day.I must say, my lips remain chap free and soft.They also carry a tinted lip gloss.So, if you haven't tried any organic beauty products, I suggest you do.You might be pleasantly surprised by the results.
