Happy Monday friends. I hope you had a wonderful long holiday weekend if you were celebrating the 4th and if not I hope you had a lovely weekend anyway. I had a great time relaxing with family. I chilled hard, laughed a lot and ate maybe just a little too much but it was all delicious so I’m not going to feel bad about it. Now it’s Monday and back to the grind so limbering up my writing/editing fingers.
I’m also happy to say I’m featured to today for something not bookish but very different and quite flattering for me. I’m over on Brown Beauty blog. Please click over and check me out sharing what’s in my makeup bag! I adore talking beauty products so this was so much fun for me.
Have a fantastic day.
All the best,

Just a bit of Sunday beauty seen at a stoplight yesterday to remind you to pause sometime and look around. You never know what beauty you may be missing when you’re blowing by life a little too fast.
Have a great day!
All the best,
Not sure where this path leads but wherever it’s going looks magical.

- Hey, sometimes it has to be all about me and sometimes it has to all about you too.We do so much for so many other people that it’s easy to put yourself on the back burner and then one day wake up look in the mirror and wonder What the–? What happened? Where did time go? Why didn’t I work out (because I can’t stand it) or get that facial or massage or take that walk or nap or whatever it was that would have given me the self care I needed to make this trek past the mirror a bit more palatable. Ugh! (aren’t I brave to post this unflattering pic?)
I’ve been having quite a few of those “all about me moments” or “what about me moments”and putting my “frivolous” needs aside for the needs of others (now we know for beauty and sanity’s sake they are not frivolous). Well, I did a big splurge recently and not without a lot of thought and consideration. I jumped in and got a Clarisonic. I had been wanting one for a long time since I’ve been having problems with creepy little lines (hello 40), odd dry patches and where did you come from pimples.I saw the Clarisonic in person when I was at Nordstrom the other day while lusting over some handbags but I quickly put it down (along with the bag) saying no way. But then after reading countless testimonials, thinking it over for a week, I ordered one from QVC. Wheeeee!!!Now after my first try with the cleaning system I could not be happier. Like with handbags I’m a freak for good skincare and I have not been happy with mine lately. After one Clarisonic cleaning I could feel the fresh tingle from the water as it swept across my skin. Just lovely. Ahh.
Of course I now want the baby Mia for my DD. I’m sure she and her teen skin will love it too. But she may have to wait a bit because it be pricy and I thought about mine a loooong time.
I will keep you updated on my Clarisonic progress.Yay! The QVC set came with 2 extra brushes and 2 full sized cleansers one for the face and one for the body. Sweet!You can go here to check out Brown Girl Gumbo’s view on the Clarisonic Mia.And here are a couple of videos for your enjoyment. Cheers to self care!
