How was your holiday weekend?

Ours was busy but fun, filled with good company and abundant food. The weather was ideal. It was one of those weekends where I just stopped to take it all in and be thankful.

I also stumbled across this collection of gifs on Buzzfeed that made me giggle, cringe, and groan: 15 Moms Who Are Trying Their Absolute Hardest. Numbers 5, 9 and 12 made me laugh the most.

Lastly: let’s talk favorite, can’t-live-without-it beauty products. I have been singing the praises of Garnier BB Cream over on the facebook page. I don’t use foundation any more; all I need is BB cream, a dusting of powder on top, and my skin looks great. Plus, sunscreen! It really rules.

But I have also finally discovered something for my eyebrows. I have dark, arched brows and have always been petrified to fill them in at all because I go from normal to Joan Crawford super fast. But my eyebrows are thinning a bit and I have developed some sparse spots. I finally found an idiot-proof, natural brow pencil. You just draw it on in feathery strokes where you need it, use the brush to groom, and voila. Great looking brows. Inexpensive, too!

What are your most favorite products?
