Independence

Happy Birthday to America, a country I am so happy to live in. I'm looking forward to a very special family BBQ that will be catered this year, following an annual party at my friend Jordan's house. Fireworks are my favorite part about today's celebration. There is something so magical about the lights in the sky and sparkle that appears all over. I have today off, for the first time and I'm definitely going to enjoy it with my amazing friends and family. I hope you all have a fantastic Holiday. -xx Christine

Summer Bronzers

As the hotter days start arriving, Brozer is my best friend.... I don't have time to lay out every day. And well, my skin wouldn't like to turn into leather either, so a great bronzer is the best option. Don't let dark colored bronzers scare you. Also, try to avoid lighter, more orange tones because they will appear fake. You do not want to be called a carrot. My favorite two pictured below are NARS sin/casino, and Tarte's Park Avenue Princess. Between the two, they're on my face for three months straight.
Maybe this will help you pick the right color for your skin tone.

oh, It's Monday.

Monday mornings are always the hardest for me... Despite whether I worked or played on the weekend, it's the start to a very long week. For the first time in a long time, I pressed the snooze button on my alarm clock about 3 times. I still managed to get ready on time and even stop for coffee. Without caffeine I would be screwed. As I yawn while I type this.. I'm thinking about how my ONE day off this week will be. I have the fourth of July off, shockingly I can't believe it. Looking forward to a family BBQ then a friends party. Hope your Monday is a little more awake than mine is going. -xx Christine
