When I was younger visiting Toys R’ Us was like heaven. All those toys, aisles and aisles of them! When I grew up bookstores and electronic stores and..ahem…office supply stores (yes, I have a thing for office supplies, sue me) held the same exciting appeal as Toys R’ Us did and actually still do. I actually have a Kindle 2 and a Sony Reader plus I have an Ipad on the way but I can honestly say there is nothing in the world like a stroll and a browse through Barnes and Noble. I love the quiet, peaceful aisles, the smell of new books combined with a hint of some flavored coffee drink from the cafe. In my minds eye, this must be what heaven is like if it exists.
“I believe beauty starts with healthy, glowing skin. Traveling through Asia, I’ve discovered that many brightening skincare lines do not address women’s immediate need to cover dark spots. I used my makeup artist’s perspective to create this simple 5-step regimen: It includes skincare to give you brighter, smoother and clearer skin over time—and treatment makeup to give you a beautiful, even complexion instantly.” -Bobbi Brown
I imagine by now we all know how the Muse feels about whiter, brighter skin. Good skin, starts with good skin care. If I learned anything in my makeup life, I learned that indulging in cheaper skin care just doesn’t cut it. Splurging on a good skincare regime is always in order as far as my recommendations go.
I can’t say I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing much of Bobbi Brown Skincare but the few pieces I have tried, have been amazing.
Introducing Bobbi’s ritual for fresh, radiant, lit-from-within skin, the Bobbi Brown Brightening Skincare.
The Muse has some wild hair. Wavy, curly, long…tis wicked untamed and crazy. To tame it I use a bit of gel, slick it back, slap it in a bun, and place a headband on. It keeps my hair under wraps and under control when I’m working because I can’t stand to have it in my face when I’m at work.
My hair is typically dry and craves a rich conditioner however I also like to keep it free from silicones so I stick to using Lush hair care to keep everything under control. Per my norm routine I clarify my hair once a week with Lush Big as this gets my hair super squeaky clean.
Although I wash my hair every day its still has a fair bit of build up such as oil, product build up (the gel I use), etc…it gets heavy, lackluster, and just difficult to deal with. Lush Big deals with all these problems and gets my hair back under control again however it’s seriously drying, like scary hay hair!
Recently, I got a chance to test out the new Carol’s Daughter Rosemary Mint Purifying Shampoo and Conditioner. I honestly didn’t expect much but I came out of it thinking I had to tell you all how much you need it!
I’m plotting my holiday for Spring and debating where I want to go. Until I decide I have Bath and Body Works Passport Tahiti Island Mimosa Body Mist to keep me feeling tropical, sunny, and warm even when the wind and rain is kickin’ it up a notch outside my window!
