Bronzed To The Bone (The Healthy Way!)

Bronzed-to-BoneI can’t help but want to have a bit of a warm glow to my skin, nearly year round. I tend to self-tan pretty regularly come the warmer months, and on top of that I want my skin to look healthy and sun-kissed.

Although, drinking water and eating your veggies are a no brainer to healthy skin — I still wanted to show you a Bronzed To The Bone type of look with some new limited edition summer products recently launched by bareMinerals, called Lovescape. I’ve been playing around with and enjoying them for the past few weeks so I thought I’d share a favourite look I’ve been wearing.

Please let me know if you’d rather this type of post, or a more detailed style (like this one)! Just trying something new here on the ol’ blog :)BronzedToBone-side

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette

Sweet-Peach-headerSummer is creepin’ up on us and I can only imagine being bronzed to the bone, with the help of the new Too Faced Sweet Peach palette. It will help create a stunning warm yet natural bronzed look to your skin. I’m so excited to use this!

Sweet-Peach-PaletteIt’s no surprise that the new Too Faced Sweet Peach palette sold out immediately. Beauty blogger friends in both the USA and Canada have and are having a tough time getting it in their hands.

TooFacedSweetPeach-PaletteNow this palette has my attention with the orangey warm shades, since it will bring out the bright blue eyes (ahem, basically made for me!). I think it’d look extra lovely on brown eyes as well. Too Faced are always so innovative with their cutesy packaging and scented products. It’s like scratch and sniff stickers, but in eyeshadow palettes for makeup lovers. Realistically, it’s such a novelty product, because what on earth is the point of having a scented eyeshadow? There’s no point, but it’s all in good fun, really. And I think it’s something completely different that the brand is doing — it’s making them stand out. Not only because of the scent, but because of the beautiful tones in all the palettes they create, along with the soft and cream texture. Not to mention the insane pigmentation of it!

Too Faced had come out with chocolate scented bronzers and eyeshadow palettes in the past, and their second newest edition being the peanut butter and jelly. But if you know anything about me at all, those two scents just don’t jive with  me. Finally, something fresh is out for the fruit and citrus loves.

Sweet-Peach-openHey, what’s up hello beautiful beautiful peachy palette.

Sweet-Peach-allOh hello gorgeous warm shades.

Getting into the finer details, the tin is in a playful pink/orange ombre tin packaging with 18 colours to create the look you want.love-sweet-peach

The palette has a mix of peaches, warm pinks, corals, champagne, and bronzed tones with a few other colours,  (Bless Her Heart is a gorgeous olive green) along with some purples and deeper colours to create a more dramatic eye look. All of these colours from this palette are versatile and easy to wear, and there isn’t a ton of overly shimmer in the shadows. For someone that doesn’t have a huge collection of eyeshadows, this one is fantastic as it has easy to wear neutral shades that have a bit of warmth to it. I wouldn’t be surprised if I didn’t ever reach for the deeper shades (both purples and the dark brown), since I’m not into wearing anything too dark on my lids.

Thinking Out Loud Thursday #9

Similar to yesterday’s post because I find these are the easiest to write out (a whole lotta mumbo jumbo in my head that needs to be written out), before I get into all the things I need to write about, update you on, and so on.

Thinking Out Loud Thursdays are one of my favourite types of posts to do. I really need to do them much more often, because they’re not all that frequent around these parts, are they.

Does anyone hold onto gift cards as long as I do to make sure they make the best purchase they can with the card? For me, I have about 3 gift cards waiting to be used in my wallet right now. I could be silly and splurge on the things I’ve been eyeing, but when it comes to the gift cards I feel like I should get smarter pieces. For instance, I have a Crate & Barrel gift card that I’ve had since December. So much on my want-list, but I should really but what’s on my need-list, ya know? Oh practicality.

Ghirardelli Sq icecreamNot excited at all for my Ghirardelli Square ice cream.

My computer is too slow for my clickin’ and movin’ the mouse around. My husband and I bought parts for it not too long ago and built it from scratch. But the darn thing is some friggen slow. I don’t even want to tell you how long it takes me to write / edit pictures for a blog post these days. It’s painfully slow, so much so I leave the computer for hours and do the rest of my daily routine. Technically my computer is fast, but I’m not sure what the heck I do to it to make it slow down so much. Oh I want to swear on it.

Sephora Santana RowSephora is opening up at Santana Row! I’m excited. Though I’m not sure why it’s opening there since the mall across the street but I’m not complaining. I go to Santana Row way more often than I step into the maze of a mall.

Green shoesShould’a bought these shoes at the outlets. Regretting that decision.

Today I’m going to head out around the town and collect all of my birthday goodies that I didn’t get a chance to do a few weeks ago. Anyone else do that? You know, the Sephora yearly birthday gift, Ulta gave me a coupon for something too, and I want to head to World Market and use up my free $10 coupon on a really nice candle.

Speaking of birthday gifts. Starbucks didn’t send out a free drink coupon to me this year, or last. Yet I received my gold starbucks card in the mail here in california so I definitely have my address up to date on their files. Sigh. First world problems, am I right? It’s okay, McDonald’s iced coffees are way better. But man I wanted a super huge gigantor smoothie drink from them this year.

What’s App voice messages are my favourite way to communicate with my buddy Megan now that she moved all the way back to Toronto. 5 minute voice recordings? Typical. :)

That’s all I have today. What are some random things going through your mind today?!
