Benefit's Cha Cha Tint

New favorite! I went to fun Gilt City Benefit event on Wednesday night and was introduced to Benefit's Cha Cha Tint. Admittedly, I was skeptical about putting a stain on my face. But Diane showed me how and I'm having a lot of fun with it. It's a great mango pink color that blends well and adds a great glow to my otherwise pasty face.

Word to the wise: it's a stain. You literally have 2 seconds from the time you place it on your cheeks to the time you start blending with your brush. Don't be late. I spent the greater part of my Thursday morning trying to blend streaky mango stripes off my face.  Day 2 (today) went much better.

Wedding Season

100 Layer CakeSo, it's summer and that means it's officially wedding season. This one is a little different for me since my sister is getting married in January. So in addition to buying dresses, presents, and plane tickets, I'm also looking at dresses, venues, invitations, favors, and activities for the the wedding. As such, I've been finding a whole host of cute wedding blogs.

First up, is, a magnificent DIY blog complete with a marketplace of gently used wedding decorations. So cool!

The blog itself contains hundreds of ideas for truly beautiful weddings and I've enjoyed rummaging through past posts to take a look at all the brilliant wedding ideas. I particularly like this one below and find the colors stunning.

I'll keep updating with more blogs as they come along. Until then, please enjouy :)
