Look Flawless Without Makeup

Summer is the time to set your makeup and hair tools aside and embrace your natural beauty, and even though it is technically coming to an end soon, the heat does not seem to want to leave us! So skip the fuss of hot tools, blush, mascara and highlighters and relax already!  Keep in mind that going bare does require a few pointers to look your best without heavy makeup. Here are some tips from some real beauty experts: a model,  a makeup artist and a celebrity hair stylist. I hope that their tips on looking beautiful without all the fuss help you to find your way to simple, natural beauty :)

Tip from the model:
Actress, model and socialite, Byrdie Bell’flawless skin is her best feature and she credits her amazing complexion to the Finnish natural skincare company, Lumene, for which she is Brand Ambassador. For model casting calls, Byrdie is often required to show-up with a fresh, makeup-free face. “When I go on castings and auditions, I can cheat amazing skin by applying some Arctic Aqua 2-in-1 Skin Perfecting Moisture Booster to my temples and cheekbones,” says Byrdie. “You can replace traditional highlighter with a product that actually helps out your skin and still get that dewy look!” Keeping your skin hydrated is the secret to keeping your skin moist and glowy on its own, no make-up necessary!

Landlocked? Let Bath and Body Works Malibu Heat Transport You to the Beach!

Bath and Body Works Signature Collection Malibu Heat Body Lotion , Shower Gel, and Fine  Fragrance Mist

Remember those old Calgon commercials? You know, "Oh Calgon! Take me away!" That's exactly what I think of when I smell Malibu Heat, one of the latest additions to Bath and Body Works Signature Collection. It is like the beach in a bottle and in an instant you feel transported ocean side. The scent is described as "a fresh blend of juicy pineapple, California orange and creamy coconut milk inspired by hot pink sunsets and twenty-seven miles of beautiful beach." My nose translates that to fun in the sand, surf and sunshine, with hints of salt water, coconut tanning oil, and creamy pina coladas (with lots of fruit and strong rum). I think I may be in need of a tropical vacation ASAP (or maybe just some quality bath time with out the girls joining me or banging on the bathroom door until I get out; I'd honestly be happy with either option).

Bethenny Frankel's Skinnygirl Face & Body

I'm kind of ashamed to admit it, but I know I'm not alone, so here goes: I really like TV. And I really enjoy "reality" TV. In fact, I think Bravo may be one of my favorite channels. For me, it started with the first season of Top Chef and just exploded from there. So I actually remember the first season of Real Housewives of New York, when Bethenny Frankel stood out as the lone "non" wife in the cast. She also didn't talk like the other wives, or live the same lifestyle (or on the same side of town). She was easier to relate to, because her story, her life, mirrored other women's life in a way that the other cast members just did not.

I also remember the sense of happiness I felt for her to see her business ventures flourish (did you see the Bethenny Ever After where she and her hubby visited the Skinnygirl bottling plant? And have you seen the commercials for Skinnygirl cocktails lately? There's 4 vodkas, 5 cocktails, and 3 wines now!), we were pregnant at around the same time, and to see her tie the knot and live and learn the challenges of being part of the partnership that is marriage. 

It was only a couple of  years ago that Bethenny was single and struggling to pay rent on her 750 foot apartment in New York. When she was on the Real Housewives of New York, she quickly became a sensation because she is relatable – she tells it like it is! Women across America reacted to  her being herself and being honest. Now, Bethenny Frankel is a reality TV star, mother, best-selling author, entrepreneur, and talk-show host!

Summer Essentials Offer from So Cozy

I love the water so much, I was on the swim team in high school! So it should be no surprise that all 3 of my daughters take to the water like fish (even if it's just the bath water). Now that it's  finally the season of sun, surf, and scorching heat, we're all very thankful that there is a pool in our neighborhood. Today, we had the perfect, not too hot, just enough sun kind of day, so we made our first appearance at the pool of the season.

Peyton (who forgot to take off her glasses before getting in the pool), Kenzie (who refuses to make eye contact with the camera), and London (who wants to get in the water , but is petrified of getting her face wet)

We all had a blast, but then I realized that 3 little girls' heads in chlorinated pool water all summer long was bound to be a lot of work for mama, and I kind of wanted to yank them out of the pool until I could get them some swimming caps! But then I remembered some valuable information I found in an email, and I thought I share these hair saving tips with you lovelies as well!

London refused to get off of the stairs. Kenzie, on the other hand, was quite adventurous and wanted to spend the whole time neck deep and splashing in the pool <3 

Remember the posts I did on Cozy Friedman and her book, Cozy's Complete Guide to Girl's Hair?  Well as an authority on children's hair care, Cozy has a few pieces of advice on how to preserve and protect your little one's hair from the damaging effects of chlorine and the sun's rays...

Fun Outdoors with eco-armour™ “outdoor” botanical insect repellent body spray & moisturizer

While I enjoy the beauty of nature, I'm not exactly what you'd consider the "outdoorsy" type. Mostly because I hate insects (some might say I have a bit of a phobia, but I digress). Despite my aversion to the great outdoors, as a mommy I want to foster an appreciation for nature and the desire to play out in the fresh air in my children. Unfortunately, I think I may have unintentionally passed on my great disdain for bugs to London (and I can honestly say unintentionally because I go to great lengths to put on a brave face when she is present and we are confronted with a fly, spider, etc.). I tried really hard to not make my fear her fear, but to no avail; she freaks the heck out EVERY time she even thinks she sees an insect out of the corner of her eye. Needless to say, convincing her to play (and stay) outside can be a hard fought battle.

That all kind of changed this weekend when we tried eco-armour™ “outdoor” botanical insect repellent body spray & moisturizer...
