The best hydrating face mist

I can be a bit of a skin care fanatic.  I will drop major bucks on skincare treatments in a heartbeat, but you would have never guessed my favorite product of all time is a mineral water. Yes, I am obsessed with spraying water on my face, but this isn’t just water from the sink you probably won’t get the same results with that. Facial mists re-hydrate and calm the skin. Evian-Facial-Spray

You may have heard of spritzing a water on your face in the summer months as a way to cool down, or spraying your face after a flight for re-hydration but there are many other times when you can should be using a face mist. I used to be one of those people who thought the idea of spraying fancy water on my face was a gimmick, and then I tried it and my life changed. Okay maybe it’s dramatic to say my life changed but seriously my skin care routine has not been the same since. If I made a list of the best kept beauty secrets, using a facial mist would without a doubt be in my top five.

Third Love Luxury Lingerie

There have been studies that show that somewhere around 80% of women are wearing the wrong size bra.  I have to admit that once upon a time I as one of them. How many of you had an idea what your bra size was, and over the years you just kept buying that size? That was me a few years ago. I never really took into account that not only had I gained some weight but my body shape had changed also, I was in denial I suppose.

Finally after being OVER bras that were not comfortable, I went and had a bra fitting. I have been fitted by a professional for bras before but, this time the associate got more up close and personal. Nothing inappropriate, but I was not used to a stranger adjusting the girls so much. Needless to say not only was I wearing the wrong size, I was way off. My jaw nearly hit the floor when the fitter told me my size was 36C, I had been buying 34B’s for so many years.  If shopping for bra’s is something you would prefer to do online in the comfort and privacy of your own home ThirdLove, a online lingerie boutique just might be what you have been wishing for.  [Read more…]

Banish Panty Lines; Go Commando

Thank you to Cottonelle for sponsoring today’s post and inspiring me to #GoCommando!

There are so many factors that go into choosing an outfit for a special occasion. Once the dress, shoes and accessories are picked you can’t forget the undergarments. The wrong undergarments can easily ruin the look. Let’s be real visible panty lines are not cute. I know some of  you might be saying well duh that is when you wear a thong or a slip, do people under 80 even wear slips anymore? Sometimes a dress is so form fitting even a thong will have a line.

Earlier this year I mentioned doing some beauty dares, well I’m adding a fashion dare to the mix by going commando. I have a few formal events coming up this year and I have already been looking online for dresses. I see already I have some work to do since everything I like is a bit form fitting, and that also means I will have to step out of the comfort zone and go commando.

Did you catch the Oscars last week? I love watching the stars on the red carpet and admiring all the beautiful dresses. I have no doubt with some of those figure hugging dresses more than one lady was confidently going commando.
