Hello friends! Sorry for the unintentional blogging break, and thank you for your sweet birthday wishes. We’ve been overwhelmed here, my aunt passed away, and well, I just didn’t feel like blogging. And except for pictures of my little one on Halloween, I didn’t have any new photos to share with you. So to fill in and tide us over, I decided to do a brief beauty favorites. Hope you find something you love here,
First up, Butter nail polish. You can get it on line, or in certain stores, like Nordstrom. In every color from fun to funky, these polishes are beautiful and completely free of those cancer-causing chemicals that make me shudder. I mean, suffering for beauty is one thing, getting sick is completely another. They aren’t the longest lasting polishes I’ve tried, but they dry so quickly, it’s super fast and easy to touch them up. Manicure in minutes? I’m in!
Another old favorite is this one from Vaseline. Intensive Rescue Repairing Moisture lotion keeps my feet sandal ready all year long. Unscented, not greasy, and really effective, it is great at keeping winter skin hydrated.
In winter, I tend to move away from the light scents of summer. Green Tea by Bulgari is still light, but with a little more “presence” than what I wear in warmer months. With bergamot, bitter orange, orange blossom, ceylon cardamom, pepper, coriander, bulgarian rose, jasmine, green tea and smoked wood, this perfume is just a light touch of citrus and tea that never fails to get compliments.
Another product I can’t get enough of this time of year is the Body Shop’s Satsuma products, especially the body butter and the shower gel. Its sweet citrusy scent will leave you smelling like the most delicious tangerine you’ve ever smelled.
If you’re like me, antibacterial gels are too drying on your hands this time of year. I found this Clean Antibacterial Hand lotion at Sephora. It isn’t quite enough moisture for me for winter, but it does the trick without drying my hands.
