I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. I certainly did – I am amazed with the balance of productivity and relaxation I managed to find.
With my week away quickly approaching I have started getting organized. Although I have seen many ‘Travel Make Up Bag’ posts and videos, I don’t think I ever considered doing my own until now. Once the thought crossed my mind I was unable to talk myself out of it. Please remember, I’ve only just started. If it seems like something is missing, it’s probably because it is.
Here’s what I have so far:
Maybelline New York Mineral Powder (910- Classic Ivory) Powder Foundation. Did you know that this foundation is preservative, oil, talc and fragrance free? Click here to view or purchase this product from Amazon.
Maybelline New York Great Lash Mascara (100- Blackest Black). If your eyes get irritated easily by mascara you may want to give this hypo-allergenic mascara a try. I happily re-purchased this product for the third time while out shopping with a friend a few weeks ago!
Elizabeth Arden Lipstick (“Blush”). This SPF 15 lipstick by Elizabeth Arden is one of my favorites. Don’t worry about the bright pink color, it goes on quite thin and subtle.
Woodland Berry (15) Lipstick by Estèe Lauder.
Magic Mosaic Multi-Colored Custom Bronzer. This was actually a gift and I know very little about it, other than the fact that I love it!
Avon Glimmersticks Eyeliner in Brown Chocolate (G22), Smoky Grey (G05) and Blackest Night (G04). If you read my previous post on Avon Glimmersticks Eyeliner you may remember that the three of these are water-proof. I am hoping for nice weather and plenty of time in and around the pool. Everyone cross their fingers!
EOS Lip Balm – Summer Fruit and Honeysuckle Honeydew. Yes, it’s true – I am still loving EOS products!
Estèe Lauder Blush All Day Natural Cheek Color (16 – Desert).
Avon GlazeWear Shine Lip Gloss – Tickled Pink.
Revlon PhotoReady Liquid Foundation (003 Shell). How could I leave one of my favorite foundations at home?
Avon Mega Impact Eyeshadow – Khaki Crazed and Nude Attitude.
Maybelline New York Amethyst Smokes Eyeshadow Quad.
Cover Girl NatureLuxe Liquid Silk Foundation (320).
I would like to apologize for posting this before I finished packing, but I hope you have enjoyed today’s ‘Travel Make Up Bag’ post. Is this something you would like to see the next time I travel (if so, I promise to wait until I completely packed before posting)?
Thanks for reading!

Happy Friday! I hope all of you have exciting plans for the weekend. If you do not, feel free to hang around the blog all weekend leaving comments, I would love to make it more interactive. If you have any suggestions for making the blog more interactive please let me know, I would really appreciate it!
Now, let’s get to today’s two part post: empties and favorites!
Lately, as a result of an inner ear infection I have been experiencing vertigo. I am doing my best to not complain, but let’s face it, it is not fun. For me, the most difficult part was being told I was not allowed to drive for a few weeks. However, I understand the reasoning behind this – safety first. Last night, while trying to get comfortable in a position that did not trigger ‘the dizzies’ (is that even a word?) I decided more than anything I wanted to make chocolate pie. I had the pie shell (pie crust?) and the chocolate pudding mix, I just hadn’t gotten around to making the pie.
Sometimes I am able to talk myself out of decisions I make while falling asleep. For example, right after deciding to make the chocolate pie I decided to mop the floors -I quickly excused myself from that chore when I woke up this morning.
I am glad I made the chocolate pie this morning. It was nice to switch up my morning routine and it makes my morning sound more productive than it was, especially if I leave out the word chocolate. “By ten o’clock this morning I had the dog walked, laundry started and I made a pie!” – See what I mean? 😉
I’ve been tagged! Thanks for my best friend Jennifer (The Wired Enthusiast) I’ve been tagged (tasked?) to do this Rainbow Tag. Have I said tag/tagged enough? As Jenn mentioned in her post this has been especially popular on YouTube but they are also gaining popularity in the blogging world. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this tag, you go through your favorite products and find something for each color of the rainbow, plus something multicolored. So, let’s get to it:
Are your lips in need of a little TLC? Try one of my favorite lip routines and in a week, enjoy smoother, softer lips.
In my experience, lips seem to get neglected in the summer, and are more of a priority in the winter, especially if you have particularly cold winters! However, I have decided to do this post in the summer. After all, we seem to focus on every other part of our body this time of year.
Start with the lime and honey lip scrub that I previously posted, or any other lip scrub. Each night for a week (or longer – I try to use lip scrub every night), massage your lips for a minute or two using the lip scrub and your finger. Remove the lip scrub – if you’re using the lime and honey lip scrub don’t forget that it is edible, so you’re able to lick it off! After using the lip scrub, apply a layer of lip balm. Lately I have been using a DIY lip balm right before bed. Eventually I will get around to posting a DIY tutorial for it!
As soon as I wake up in the morning I like to apply another layer of lip balm. Try to squeeze a quick application of lip balm into your morning routine. Throughout the day keep your lips moisturized with multiple applications of your favorite lip balm. One of my favorites that I have been using a lot is EOS Sweet Mint.
Check your daily lip routine – do you use a lip product with an SPF? Incorporating this into your lip routine is beneficial, not only for smoother, softer lips, but to avoid the pain of having sun-burnt lips! Ouch.
This lip routine is quick and easy. Don’t stop when the week is up – use regularly to maintain your results!
I am always willing to try out new lip products, and when this caught my eye in the drug store this morning while running errands, I knew that I had to try it. Less than an hour later, it has already become one of my favorite lip balms ever! What’s not to like about this? As you can see in the picture it is 100% natural and 95% organic and the packaging is absolutely adorable! My lips felt instantly moisturized after the first application, not to mention the lip balm smells amazing. If you’re not one to splurge on lip balm, I only paid $2.99 for this! I am eager to pick more up, so don’t be surprised if EOS Lip Balm makes another appearance in the near future.
I think it’s safe to say that Live Laugh Love is now up and running. Originally, I was planning on making my first ‘real’ post this Sunday (2 June), but I’ll be surprised if I make it to Wednesday or Thursday before posting again.
Thanks for reading and check back soon!
