Wanted Sam Edelman Boots!

The spiky shoe trend has been growing on me, I really like these:

Sam Edelman Women's Renzo Ankle Bootie

However for $250, I'll just have to wait for a huge sale or have someone buy them for me...LOL! You can find them at Endless, I'll just daydream about them. 

Back in the real world, I'm not really thinking about shoes...especially not heels.  This weekend my fiance and I moved his belongings and I think every place on my body is sore today.  Just the two of us managed to move all his stuff...some into storage, some into my place.  I really never knew how much I could sweat and it was actually fairly mild weather compared to average temperatures.  Overall the moving was a fairly pleasant arguments and no injuries.  Now if we can unpack all his stuff, mingle them with my things and everything fit, I'll be one happy cohabiter!  :)

My Summer Beauty Must Haves!

It's so sweltering here in Arkansas that when you step outside, you feel like your breathing inside a sauna.   Each year feels hotter than the past...perhaps all this climate change talk isn't just a myth :P  For Arkansas summers there is one must have beauty product that you absolutely can not, should not live without.  (That pretty much goes for everybody else in the world too!)


I really love Neutrogena sunscreens, but I love saving money even more.  Walgreens makes a good "compared to" version of Neutrogena's Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen.  It is a broad spectrum sunscreen that block both UVA/UVB know the ones that cause skin cancer and leathery skin.  This Walgreens version doesn't make my skin oily and it also doesn't clog my pores...yay!  Apply liberally and often!

Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer

In the summertime lipstick just feels too heavy on my lips.  I love Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers because they glide on easily, are small & portable, and they feel weightless on my lips.  Definitely makes for a kissable mouth.  :)

Everyday Mineral Sunlight Finishing Dust

I love Everyday Minerals Makeup!  When the whole Bare Minerals craze came about, I was one of the many people who tried it, but I wasn't one of the many people that liked it.  I thought BM left my face too sheeny, which in turn made me look oily, plus it seemed to clog my pores.  The next mineral makeup I tried was Everyday Minerals and for me this was my HG makeup and I've used it every since.  You have to love their $5 Base Sample Kits, they send you five 1gm samples in different shades...a great way to find the color you need.  What was I supposed to be talking about, oh yes their finishing dust.  The Sunlight Finishing Dust is a great product for me to use in the summer.  I apply it once in the morning after applying my foundation and it keeps the oil gods at bay.  This is also great to apply if the oil gods have already visited you, it soaks the oil right up.   The Sunlight version is yellowish which helps to conceal redness and dark circles.  Winner for me!

All this talk about summer and humidity and you would think this would be the last must have beauty item on my list....

Baby Oil

Yes, I like that it is greasy, oily and makes me look shiny.  Even though my face leans toward the oily side, the rest of me tends to get crackled o.O  I love applying it right after the shower after having lightly toweled off.  It really is a great, cheap moisturizer and the smell of baby to me is just fantastically not overwhelming like some lotions.  I don't really have a favorite brand, but preferring a bargain I like saving a few with the "compared to" version like the one Walgreens offers.

Verdant Slip Dress

Sorry I've been absent for awhile.  I've been trying to be good and not make any new purchases.  I haven't stepped foot in an Anthropologie since my last fitting room review post.  It has been hard, painful even....LOL!

Today, I broke my ban and bought the Verdant Slip Dress in the Blue Motif.  I really loved the original green motif version, but I thought the pale green might not look good with my skin tone.  I tend to wear darker colors better, so when I saw the blue version I was even more in love.  I can't wait to get it!  When I do receive it I'll post pics of it plus the Sangatte Slip Dress.
