2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 16,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

The Queen of all BB Creams

I know I’ve written about BB Creams before and have had different favorites along the way, but this one is different.
Tarte BB Tinted 12-Hour Primer is the holy grail of BB creams. I tried it at the beginning of summer and instantly knew I had found THE ONE. It goes on with the silkiness of a primer and the coverage of a light foundation. I barely need any concealer. It also moisturizes well, is an anti-aging treatment and has SPF. It does a great job evening out my skintone and covering imperfections and it diffuses light which minimizes all my pesky fine lines, pores, and wrinkles. Best of all-it’s oil free and comes in 5 shades, which is unusual for a BB. If you’re looking for a makeup that’s light weight and made with more natural ingredients, I highly recommend this product. You won’t be disappointed!

Tarte BB Tinted 12-Hour Primer $35

Clogging My Way Through Summer

When I was a young girl, I desperately wanted a pair of clogs. I remember going to our local shoe store, The Footbridge, to try on a pair. Alas, my feet were too small and so it was no clogs for me. I’ve recently become obsessed with them again, thanks to Free People and their fantastic assortment. The leather is supple, the wood is gorgeous, and they are the perfect shoe for transitioning from summer to fall (not that I’m in any hurry for the leaves to start changing). Here are my favorites-how can you not love them?!?!
