Look at these beautiful howlite bracelets I just won from fabulous Tamera of her eponymous blog Tamera Beardsley.
|Check out the beautiful packaging.|
These bracelets have a satisfying weight to them, and are super smooth. The perfect addition to a summer wardrobe.
Tamera has a beautiful, artistic style. I admire the freedom and fun she has in styling her life. Thank you, Tamera, for your generous giveaway.
And now, a few of my current favorites.
Although you know I'm not giving up my heels, I do need a comfy shoe for running errands in. Minnetonka moccasins have been around forever, but I just now discovered how comfortable they are.
I might even get another pair, in navy. Or pink.
I've been experimenting with brighter lipstick, and I really need to outline my lips before I put it on. The brighter pink is not as forgiving as a nude lipstick, and I find I need to be much more careful in applying it. You know how most lip pencils feel like -- pencils? Hard on the lips, and hard to even see if you're not using a super-dark color?
This Rimmel Exaggerate lip pencil is soft, smooth, and so easy to apply. You can even outline your lips with it, then fill in, and use it on its own. This color is Enchantment.
Another thing I'm loving every morning is my waffle. Seriously, it's my favorite meal of the day.
|oops . . . I started to eat this before I remembered to take a picture!|
It's made with chocolate-flavored rice protein powder, eggs, cinnamon, banana, and almond milk. The recipe calls for egg whites only, but I use the whole egg. I also use a pat of butter. I've learned not to be scared of good fats.
This waffle is loaded with protein, and, unlike other waffles that leave you starving an hour later, this little guy keeps me chugging along for a good four hours or more until lunch time.
Warmer weather is coming . . . which means sandals and bare feet. My heels are so dry and they can crack in the winter if I don't take care of them, but actually summer can even be harder on them. Probably because I neglect putting lotion and socks on around the house; I much prefer bare feet!
Have to remember to keep using this . . .
I get this at Whole Foods, and it's the best thing I've found for those pesky heels.
One more favorite.
Lovely, natural scent that doesn't compete with food, no paraffins, and made by bees! I do find beeswax hard to remove, so I don't often use tapers, which can drip on my linens. I like these little tea lights in my mercury glass holders. I light them at every meal -- even when I'm eating my waffle!
And they're nice to scatter around tables at dinner parties.
Thank you all for your encouraging comments regarding my weight loss. It really helps me, friends! You are all the best!! Seriously, this little corner of blogland is such a supportive and happy place. I'm so glad I took the leap and began blogging.
