Summer Summer Summertime…

Summer 2014 is off to a great start! The Bday week was so much fun! My friends were beyond generous and made sure that 41 started off with a bang!!

Saturday was spent sunning with girlfriends at The Grand Pavilion on the IOP.  I wanted to be  picture ready and make sure to protect my skin from the harsh summer sun. My tendency is to go light with make up in the sun…but let’s be honest waterproof mascara and lip-gloss are a must! These are some of my summer favs!!!

Revlon, Trish McEvoy, Maybelline and Cover Girl (my personal favorite) all have fantastic waterproof mascara to keep you from looking like Cruella DeVille at the beach.  What is your favorite summer beauty secret??!

Happy Monday friends…time to grind it out!  XOXO,  Catherine



Spring Steals…

I’ll admit it-I’m a makeup and skin care junkie!! I will hit the make up counter and drop a hunge in no time flat. I am loving the pastel pop of color that is so on trend this spring. Now is the perfect time to bring some life to the muted tones I have worn all winter-with a twist. I’ve given myself a budget of $50 to cover everything…from mascara to nails and everything in between. Off to Ulta to see
what I can find!

For being an Ulta Member, both my Maybelline and Revlon purchases were 50% off regular price.  I got a chubby stick sharpener and purse size nail files ($1 each at the register) to complete my collection and walked away $12 under budget.

Happy Shopping!
