MAC Fix +

Love this stuff! It feels so good on your skin, it smells light and fresh. I usually wear it over my makeup, but at night I also spray my bare face before bed as a light moisturizer. Since I wear both foundation and powder during the day, I love that with a few sprays of Fix +, that powdery, cakey look disappears, and it also sets your makeup.
Here's what the MAC claims about Fix +: An aqua-spritz of vitamin and minerals, infused with a calm-the-skin blend of green tea, chamomile, cucumber, topped off with the fresh, natural, energizing scent of Sugi. Adds radiance, finishes makeup. Spray it on. Skin drinks it up!
The first time I used Fix +, I made the mistake of spraying it to close to my face, so if any of you buy it, make sure you spray it at least 6 inches away from your face.

Loving: Mirrored Furniture

Castillo di Amorosa

If you guys ever visit Napa, you HAVE to go to Castillo di Amorosa AKA "The Castle of Love" to go wine tasting. It is breathtaking! And they have fabulous wines. The love and I joined their wine club (our first one!) today so now we're privy to all their parties and events.

New Blog: Princess LM's Garage Sale

Following suit of some other bloggers, I just created a blog for selling items, such as clothing, shoes, home goods, etc. I figured I should try and give it a go since e-bay charges an arm and a leg for selling. Here's the link:

Benefit Erase Paste Review

This stuff has worked miracles for me; once I hit my 20's, all of a sudden I had dark circles under my eyes. I've tried different concealers and for the most part they're very drying and cakey. Not Benefit's Erase Paste! It is ultra creamy and does a fabulous job of hiding dark circles and broken capillaries, red spots, etc. What I like most about it is that it's a concealer and illuminates in one, so I don't have to use an eye brightener in addition to concealer. It can be applied with your hands or a foundation brush, and it comes with a tiny spatula so you don't make a goopy mess by digging it out with your fingers. I have heard others complain about Erase Paste not working well on darker skin tones. I am very fair skinned and use the lightest shade; there are three shades total. The only downside is the price: $26...although it lasts a LONG time. Have any of you tried Erase Paste? Love it? Hate it?

I am so excited! It has just been announced that Forever 21 is coming out with furniture and home decor! It will debut later this year in their larger stores. No word yet on exact dates...
Hopefully the home collection won't be too teeny-bopper and have some furniture/decor like their For Love stores.
