Warm shortly after I started wearing foundation (which was maybe a year after I started wearing makeup). I’ve always really liked myself in warmer shades like golds, coppers, bronzes – so I was already naturally inclined to a lot of the supposedly flattering colors on me. But I will wear whatever I like, and sometimes a color may be more flattering than others. (I think I look best in natural makeup, but it doesn’t stop me from wearing something really bright!)

Free for Haul Friday, Volume #139

Welcome to Free For Haul Friday!

  • Haul:  A few products from the fall releases — I don’t want to say because I’m not sure what I’ll review (well, more like photograph, test, and review before it’s sold out)
  • Weekend plans: Try to relax for a little bit, at least 🙂  Farmer’s market on Saturday, brunch on Sunday!
  • What’s your favorite type of clothing?:  Jackets–they really do complete and transform any outfit.

Share your pet photos to the Temptalia Pets flickr group! 🙂

This week’s Mellan photo…


Lazy days on the grass…

It’s not part of my day-to-day, core routine, as in “can’t not do it,” because frankly, I hate exercising. I wish I was one of those people who had to run in order to relax. I wish I was more prone to exercise than going to Starbucks. (Side note: instilling a desire for physical activity in your young one from the get-go will help them so much more in adulthood!!) I do consider eating healthy (or healthier) part of my every day beauty routine. It doesn’t mean I starve myself or I only eat salads; but it means I know I can’t eat macaroni and cheese everyday or have a giant carrot cake all to myself. It means if I want a sliver of birthday cake, I aim for a lower calorie intake on my meals for the day. I’ve struggled with weight my entire life, and I’m about 15 pounds heavier than I’d like to be, so I have been trying to make lifestyle changes in the past few months. I still try and want to be more active, but some days are better than others.
