Beach Lover

By now, I think you all realize I love summer. I am a Leo and we cats love the sun and heat. I also love summer because I have a glow and need less makeup. Because of the importance of sunscreen, most of my glow is created by self-tanner and the right combination of products. And just in time for summer, Nars has created the perfect set to enable all women to look as though they spent the day at the beach.
Nars “Beach Lover” is a 5 piece travel-size gift set that will give you the perfect island glow. Featuring their most iconic beachy colors, this is a must have for anyone that loves the look of spending the day at the beach without really doing it.

Nars Beach Lover $49 ($74 value) is a limited edition and is exclusive to Sephora

This amazing set contains the following products:

Blush Duo in Hungry Heart (golden ivory) and Orgasm (peach pink with golden tones). This duo compliments each other perfectly. The blushes are translucent, natural, and leave skin with a healthy glow.

Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Skorpios (iridescent copper). This pencil is smooth and creamy and can be worn all over the eye. It is also incredibly long-wearing.

Lip Gloss in Laguna (bronze and limited edition). A very pigment dense gloss that doesn’t dry out your lips, stays put, and makes lips look kissable.

Illuminator in Laguna (brown with golden shimmer). A miracle product, this illuminator gives skin a refreshed luminosity. Worn alone or with other makeup, you will look radiant.

The Fashion Box

I had some returns to make so I headed to the mall this morning. While there, I found a book I had wanted on sale for 50% off. Well, I had to buy it!
“The Fashion Box” by Antonio Mancinelli, is just that-a book about fashion packaged in a neat box. It is broken down into key wardrobe pieces (think miniskirt, trench coat, denim, a crisp white shirt) and these essentials are showcased in photographs of iconic women who wore them best. It is a great reference for those who need a little help putting outfits together, and a great photo book for those who love fashion.
