It’s already June and much to my dismay…… time is rapidly moving faster and faster for some reason and I now know what all the philosophers mean when they say a lifetime is a blink of time. I mean, I have actually had an iphone for 21/2 years now…… amazing! Well, anyway, it is a good time to think of everything I have to be grateful for and also a little roundup of some my favorite things from this year. Just a variety of things that I can remember…… hope you enjoy!
One of my favorite Pinteresters is Micah Sarai! She pins some of the most amazing images…. lots of variety and very artistic! My favorite boards are the All Black Everything, Fashion Files, Men of Style and Art Deco Dream!!

Makeup and Skin Care
I discovered a new makeup and skincare line, Pür Minerals, from a makeup artist friend who works with them!! They have a great line of mineral based products that are formulated with good-for-your-skin ingredients that not only help cover skin imperfections but also help revitalize and improve the overall look and feel of your skin. Plus, these products are free of parabens, mineral oil, petrolatum, formaldahyde, hydroquinone and lanolin. I really love the whole line but here are my super fave products…
Simplicity effectively removes dirt, impurities and even makeup without irritation.
Soak It Up is a dewy cream that provides both immediate relief from dryness and long-term moisture loss prevention.
Rescue Squad Daily Defense (DD) Crème with SPF 25 actively fights the visible signs of skin stress and premature aging with a blend of rich, natural hydrators.
