Today is the 20 year anniversary of my first date with my husband! I can't believe it has been that many years :) On that first date we went out to dinner with another couple and to see "Forever Young" - does anyone remember that movie?? We have been inseparable ever since - original "high school sweethearts"!
As we were telling our kids this morning about the date my 9 year old said, "Wow, mom! 20 years ago was your first date? You were dating at like 10 years old then?!" Have I mentioned how much I love this kid?? And no, I wasn't 10 (but for those of you that considered that for a moment as even a possibility after seeing me on here almost daily - God bless you!!! LOL)
First I met my husband for lunch wearing this OOTD:
Joe Fresh Mint shawl collar sleeveless blouse / Steve Madden fringe bag / American Eagle peep toe Wedges (old) / Black cardigan via Target (old!) / Seven 7 Jeans black ankle pants / Bubble Necklace via Ebay / Kenneth Cole Watch / Multi Strand bangle bracelet via boutique in La Jolla, CA
Okay, so after meeting my husband for lunch I ran into Sephora and Sally's for some much needed items and samples. Here is what I came home with:
Yes, lots of samples! I am on the look fr a great BB cream, CC cream or tinted moisturizer with SPF for the summer. After researching some of the top performing brands I came up with to try were Urban Decay's Naked Skin, Josie Maran Tinted Moisturizer and Peter Thomas Roth CC Cream. My Beauty Insider gift today was a Tarte sample pack that also came with samples of their "BB Tinted Treatment Primer". I plan to try each of these products for a few days to a week and see which I like best before purchasing.
Any others I should be trying? I am so open to suggestions!
I also snagged Benefit's Fake Up for my under eye brightener I need something that will not settle into the lines around my eyes and this product promises not too. We will see......I am optimistic! :)
Urban Decay's setting spray is my favorite and this one is a smaller travel size which will be perfect for my make-up bag. Of course, I couldn't pass up the "clearance" bins and they had these great Sephora lip glosses there for only $5 each. I grabbed #1 - Honey Lips and #5 - Under A Spell...both great shimmery summer colors!
And my last stop was Sally's Beauty Supply. I don't know why I didn't get my new iron box completely in the picture - that is so strange. Oh well, the one that is literally taped up with sports tape is my old curling iron that finally breathed it's last breath today....as I was in the middle of curling my hair to go meet my husband no less! I have a "back-up" iron that I don't like very much in the cabinet for just such emergencies and boy was I glad that I did today!
Sally's still had my same iron in store, but I opted for this one by ion Finishing Solutions because I was told it still has all the same features as my beloved old iron (and has the twirling end which is a MUST for me!), but is a little nicer quality.
That poor pitiful iron that is all taped up and looks 15 years old is only about a year and a half old. I figured that it should have last much longer than that (it has been taped for almost 6 months!) so I didn't really want to purchase another one of that brand and be back in here again in a year or so.
Well, that is all I have for today (PLENTY I would say!).
Hope you are all having a great week so far :)
