Fashion Flash - Staying Together By Staying Apart!


Happy Quarantine day... Sorry. I can't remember, anymore. Thanks to asthma, your's truly has been in self imposed lockdown since the first part of March and I've been keeping my distance from my husband and son, both of whom are essential in their own fields and are still working, full time. Good times. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do and this girl's gonna do it. One of my comforts, these days is my Internet connection and grateful I am that it's up and humming along and that I can stay informed, keep my mind busy and stay connected to family and friends. I'm also happy to have distractions like Fashion Flash - this week hosted by our lovely Mirabai at Moving Free. If you also crave a nice distraction, head over and check it out.

Stay inside. Stay well. If you're an essential worker, thank you for all that you are doing to help treat the ill, keep our communities safe, keep us fed, our lights and water on, packages landing on our doorsteps and our Internet up and running. Please know that we appreciate your efforts and the risks you take, every day.

The Beauty Spotlight Team - Goodbye March


A part of me feels weird about posting beauty content during a pandemic but another part of me feels certain that we all crave some normalcy, routine and fun, frivolous media that doesn't add to our already skyrocketing stress levels. A nice beauty blog roundup is just what the doctor ordered, if you ask me, so grab a nice, calming beverage, a yummy snack, kick back and enjoy The Beauty Spotlight Team Weekly Roundup. Until we see you next week gentle reader, stay home, stay well and if you are an essential worker, thank you for everything that you do to help keep us all healthy, fed, the lights on and our Internet humming and stay safe.

3 Easy Steps to a Firmer and More Youthful Complexion with the Murad Youth Renewal Trio

3 Easy Steps to a Firmer and More Youthful Complexion with the Murad Youth Renewal Trio 1

all hail Retinol!

If you've been hanging around here for any amount of time, you know that Retinol is one of my all time favorite skin care ingredients. I have used it for years and I've seen the benefits for myself, on my face, with my own eyes. I am always excited to try new to me skin care brands that contain that magic elixir so I was thrilled when a representative from Murad reached out to me and invited me to participate in their intro campaign for their Retinol Youth Renewal trio on Instagram. Since then, I've used these products pretty consistently and they are my new 3 Easy Steps to a Firmer and More Youthful Complexion!

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist is the Perfect Complexion Refresher this Spring


Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist is the Perfect Complexion Refresher this Spring - Layers

One of the skin care delights of life for me is face mists. I really love face mists and if I'm honest, I low key hoard them. Face mists are an integral part of my skin care routine and I love them for setting and refreshing my makeup. The mist that we are talking about today is one that I resisted, for a long time, as I felt that it was all Instagram and YouTube It Girl hype and nothing particularly special or worthy of it's share of my limited and precious beauty budget. I'm happy to say that I was wrong. Yes, I finally caved to the siren song of sweet, watermelon-y foggy goodness and purchased myself a bottle. Now, I think that this might just be the perfect complexion refresher for spring and summer.
