Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35 Review

Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream is a newish BB Cream that is offered in five shades: Fair, Light, Light/Medium, Medium and Dark.

This baby does five things to help beautify your skin. It primes, so you can wear it alone or under a foundation. The tinted formula also perfects, making your skin smooth and even by filing in pores and blurring fine lines. It hydrates with moisture. It protects against UVA/UVB rays with an SPF of 35 (yay 35!!). And finally, it helps control oil without leaving a chalky or matte finish.

This BB Cream is also infused with anti-aging peptides, which supposedly help decrease fine lines over time.

Pint Sized

In this photo Chewy looks almost identical to what he looked like as an 8 week old kitten in a photo I took right when he came home with us. Minus the freckles on his nose. And the black whiskers. And the attitude. ;)

Sonia Kashuk Spring 2012 Nail Colour Swatches & Review

Hello! I feel like I have been away awhile but I really wasn’t. I told myself I would completely stay offline the entire week while on my ‘staycation’, but of course I didn’t. When I am home 95% of the time, I cannot help but wander into my office or turn on my iPad and check everything. I think if I actually went away somewhere I could control myself better! But it feels good to be back on track and back to business. :)

Did you know that Sonia Kashuk has six Nail Colours out this spring at Target? Well now you do!

  • Fairy Princess – mint green with blue shimmer
  • Purparazzi – bright purple creme
  • Dream of Genie – bright watermelon pink creme
  • Hot Pursuit – orange/red creme
  • Tango Mango – bright coral creme
  • Golden Ticket – pale gold metallic

I checked out four of the colors and fell madly in love with one of them, but all were nice. Formula-wise, all were very easy to apply and creamy except the one I liked the most. Go figure!

A Look Back: Vampy Varnish Fav’s Featuring: Blurple

This is a re-post while I am out on vacation. Enjoy!

Happy Memorial Day!

Today I’ve got my top 10 blurples. In case you don’t know what a blurple color is, it’s a cross between blue and purple. Some are just purple with heavy blue shimmer or vice versa, and then a few cremes are thrown in for good measure. :)
