Weekending + March TBB Asks Beauty Edition

Hello Monday...you're not my favorite day but I embrace a new week with lots on the agenda. Most of the weekend was spent relaxing at home with a little adventure out and about on Sunday.
Linking up with the lovely Biana sharing some weekend tidbits.

Saturday was as lazy as it gets. Lola did some sun tanning while I sat outside on the patio enjoying the crisp weather and worked on my computer.

I did some Amazon shopping damage, designed a "Save-the-Date" for a friend, and got lots of blogging done.

I got to sleep in on Sunday, which was glorious! K, Lola and I then ventured out for some brunch/lunch at Vanbarry's. We dined on the patio listening to live music and Lola met tons of other doggie friends.


Now joining The Blended Blog ladies for their March Beauty Edition of TBB Asks.

1. Eyelash Curler Yes or No? 
I own one but always forget to use it so I guess the answer is No

2. Favorite Nail Shade? 
I like neutral colors for my nails but I'm not afraid to go crazy with bright colors. Just depends on the time of year or occasion.

3. Favorite Lipstick Shade? 
A neutral or light pink. My absolute favorite is the NYX Butter Gloss in Eclair shade.

4. Blow Dry or Air Dry your hair? 
I always blow dry my hair after washing which is a pain in the ass but I usually wash my hair at night.

5. Artificial Nails: Yes or No?  
Right now my nails are looking horrible in their "birthday suit" but I do love to get gel manicures.

6. Foundation: Yes or No?
Yes, I wear Tarte Amazonian Foundation with SPF 15 to even out my skin since I have pink undertones.

7. Hair Up or Hair Down?
Hair up is easier for going to work or in the summer heat but I wear my hair both ways depending on the occasion.

8. Bar Soap or Body Wash?
I'm still a bar soap person. I use body wash too sometimes but can't live without bar soap!

9. Bath or Shower?
Shower everyday, twice a day. I have a nice bathtub but it's probably been used once.

10. Favorite Body lotion?
All the lotions from Bath & Body Works. So many favorite scents but I'm currently using "Be Enchanted".

11. Do you wear perfume? Is so, favorite scent?
Yes, but not everyday.

These are the four perfumes in my current rotation:
Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum  *  Marc Jacobs Decadence
Therry Mugler Angel Couture  *  Versace Bright Crystal Absolu

12. Do you shave your legs everyday? 
Who has time for that and what's the point when it's cold outside?!

13. Favorite Lip Balm?
I can't rave enough about Murad's Age Reform Soothing Lip Care. It's not cheap but I've never felt softer, more hydrated lips after I started using this lip balm.

14. How old were you when you first started wearing make-up? 
I can't even remember but maybe around 14 just wearing light makeup like eyeliner and mascara.


  1. Ha! My nails look horrible right now too but I’m saving my mani/pedi for tomorrow before my vacay!

  8. Sounds like a great weekend! I keep hearing great things about Tarte's foundations that I will have to add it to my to-try list.

  9. I'm with you on the bar soap girl! I also laughed at the "who has time for that" shaving legs comment. Sometimes it's the bane of my existence to take the extra time lol.

  10. I have to blow dry my hair too, but my hair looks terrible if I don’t. I also feel like we rarely use our tub too. It’s nice but I just rarely have time for it. Your weekend sounds amazing and hopefully this Monday flies by for you!

  12. Bar soap forever. I tried to use body wash for many years. I just prefer bar soap.

    I'm an air dryer.

  13. Sounds like it was a great weekend. I'm probably the only person in the world who doesn't like bar soap. haha I know so many people who prefer it but me. haha

  14. Lola is just too cute- yay for sunshine! I LOVE NYX Butter Glosses- that color is really pretty! I also usually wash and dry my hair at night- so much easier- well as easy as it can get :)

  15. That Eclair shade is always in my purse, such a good color. The save the date looks really good. Sounds like a great weekend. I want to be Lola!
