It’s Monday. Pass the coffee and oversized sunnies, please. Only 4 more days until the holiday weekend!
Have you seen the Chanel Summer 2013 beauty collection? It’s called L’été Papillion de Chanel and it was inspired by butterflies. A beautiful explosion of color doesn’t even begin to describe this collection! I’m in love with all of it, but especially the electric mascaras. And they’re waterproof! What do you think? Would you try anything from this collection?
I think many women underestimate the power of makeup. With just a few simple steps, you can go from pretty to pretty to flawless. I don’t believe you should ever use makeup to change your face (unless you’re going to costume party!). Instead it should be used to hide small imperfections and bring out your best features. Bobbi Brown is one of my favorite makeup artists. She believes that with the right makeup, every woman can go from pretty to pretty powerful. The women in my family have been wearing Bobbi Brown Cosmetics for years. Everyone from my grandmother to my little sister. Her line has something for every skin type, skin tone and mood. And I think a little Bobbi Brown makeup kit would be a fabulous Mother’s Day gift. And when you pick everything out, send your mom/grandma/aunt a link to this fantastic tutorial: the Pretty Powerful Makeup Lesson. I’ve watched this video far too many times to count and have put these excellent makeup tips to use in my everyday life. Hope you enjoy it!
I’ve been trying to think of an impressive recipe to post for Mother’s Day, but I couldn’t think of anything special, but also simple. I found this sweet little dessert a few weeks ago and I think it’s perfect. It’s super easy to make, it’s pretty and you can pretend that it’s really healthy because it uses fruit. All you need is puff pastry, whipped cream (preferably homemade, but we won’t judge you if you use store bought) and whatever fruit your mother, grandmother, mother-in-law, and aunts like. Enjoy!
