Summer Beauty Products Part II

Another reason that I love summer are the new products that are out there. And me, being

tan-or-exic, love trying the latest in Self Tanners! I swear that my skin  becomes

used to one tanner so that I HAVE to try something new ( that's my story and I'm sticking to it!)

 My latest favorite is by, Tanceuticals in ultra dark.
 It looks so natural and I find I get the best looking color when I apply it with a mit made just for that

purpose. You can Google it and the cost is $26.95. LOVE it!

The next is a satin lipstick by Nars in their best selling Orgasm shade.  They have it in lip gloss,

liquid blush, regular blush, a's one of those shades that looks great on everyone. The

lipstick is $28.

Some new Summer Photos, Part I

I am SO much happier when summer arrives, even here in Southern California. We were lucky to get

enough rain this winter  to end the drought and to make everything grow like crazy! Not good for the

allergies but the flowers are amazing! Here's a couple of photos from my yard:

Part 2 of A Styled Bridal Shoot I'd Like To Do

This is a manicure that I love....NOT a French manicure but a softened more feminine look.
The shoes would be something like these  gold Manolo Blahnik pumps that would almost blend in with the tones of the bride's skin.

The overall look of the wedding would be something like John and Carolyn Bessette Kennedy's- very simple and a little rustic.
I think the look of this cake would suit this type of wedding well.

A Styled Bridal Shoot I'd Like To Do ( part 1)

                             I love this very simple, classic bridal look.  Someday, I would love to feature this look in a styled bridal shoot.  Maybe shoot it at Disney Hall- the Frank Gehry designed concert hall with it's clean lines or maybe at Vasquez Rocks in Agua Dulce.  In thinking about the rest of the look, I see her in Elsa Peretti ( from Tiffany) disc earrings.
I think this very large diamond engagement ring ( it's Jennifer Anniston's) would be a nice touch

 as  would this diamond cuff bracelet, also Elsa Peretti also from Tiffany.
I love peonies and I think a big bunch of them, like the ones pictured, gathered together with a big grosgrain ribbon would suit this look.
