Summer is officially here. We had some gorgeous weather over the weekend and Mr. P&P and I got outside and made the most of it. Brunch on a lilac petal littered patio, strolls by the river, a summery cocktail or three, and a good old soft serve vanilla ice-cream. Divine. I thought I’d share a round up of some of the products I reach for most in the summer months to help overhaul your warm weather routine. This is going to be a long post so you might want to grab a cool drink. Let’s dig in to my summer beauty essentials!
Your make up is only as good as the tools you apply it with. That’s an expression right? I’m pretty sure someone important said it. Marilyn Monroe, or Ghandi, or someone. I’m positive.
Anyway, I don’t actually believe that, but not all brushes are created equal. For ages I used the Quo Brushes, which can be purchased at Shopper’s Drug Mart. They are not cheap, and they are not nice. The bristles are kind of prickly and they don’t hold their shape well.
Ok lovelies, today we’re talking lippy. I used to be all about gloss. For years I wore super glossy, sweet lip glosses. Lately though I’ve been interested in slightly more matte lips. Slightly more matte, as in balms and lipstick. I don’t think I’ll ever be someone who wears a completely matte lip.
I’ve tried a few different lipstick brands, most recently Revlon which I adore, but most often I find myself reaching for my Bourgois Sweet Kiss lipsticks. I have two of them and I love them both.
Hello! Did you think I’d died? Well, excellent news: I am alive! I moved to a new apartment about a week ago (LOVE it) and that kept me pretty busy for a while there. I also just needed a bit of a breather – you know? I’ve been feeling pretty stressed lately, and without going into a lot of gory detail, it’s taken a bit of a toll on me.
