The Beauty Spotlight Team | Right Now It's April But Soon...


I know that everyone says this but, I can't believe that it's almost May and that another week has flown by. I'm so ready for the last month and a bit to fade away and for life around here to get back on a more even keel and my husband and I to be able to finally settle back into our more normal routines. I'm making a start... I got a real blog post up and I'm in on this week's Beauty Spotlight Team Roundup. Go me. But all of my nattering isn't really why we are here so let's get to it, shall we?

I can haz "Glass Skin?" 

I freely admit and you probably already know that I am a serum junkie. Few skin care products make my little heart go pitter-pat quite like a good serum and I have a nice one from K-Beauty brand Peach & Lily to share with you all, today. Now, I am well aware that at my age, "Glass Skin" is not a reasonable expectation as my face no longer has the firmness and tension required to achieve that perfect, glassy-smooth, poreless, line free finish that typifies glass skin, as I understand it but that doesn't mean that I can't continue to strive for the smoothest, softest, most glowingly youthful looking complexion that I can possibly achieve.

I'm a slacker

Yep. I'm late getting this up again but I decided to do a two month bonus two-fer so there is that. I am such a slacker at blogging, of late yet I wonder why my traffic is in the crapper... Yeah. Self inflicted.

out with the old, in with the new?

I did a little shopping, recently and one of the items I bought is a new Tangle Teezer to replace my old-old-old faithful Original Tangle Teezer that I've owned and used for years and years and I thought that it would be fun to do a little smackdown match between the two brushes to see which one best suits my hair.

Fashion Flash | No April Fools Here!


Fashion Flash is live and our host this first week of April is Sheila at Painted Ladies. All good stuff, no pranks await you so head on over and enjoy all of the great articles.

I don't much like April Fool's Day, if I'm being honest. I'm not opposed to a good joke or even an innocuous prank but I find them to be more fun when they are spontaneous and, as weird as everything in the world is, lately I'd just as soon not have to suss out what is or is not a stupid joke. If this "holiday" were to fade off into distant memory, I wouldn't mind.

Okay, I'm grouchy and I should run along before I alienate simply everyone, today.
