I’ve discovered something amazing, well, not amazing, but useful – I’ve been combining my Shiseido sunscreen with Argan oil in the mornings in an effort to be more vigilant about using sunscreen and I think it has an added bonus of acting as sort of a primer. I almost feel like the sunscreen evens out my skin tone and the oil brightens my skin. And lately I’ve found that I can just use a little RMS beauty un-cover up (#22) on my cheeks to cover redness and don’t need any other foundation. Love this! And then I read that we’re supposed to be using sunscreen on our hands, so I’m trying to do that also, but I HATE the way it feels on my fingers/palms. I want to wash it off immediately, but it will wash off the tops of my hands too…ugh. I just need to apply it more often I guess, along with hand cream, which is something I definitely don’t do enough. But I always notice women’s hands, and I think they do tend to show age more when they’re not moisturized, so I’m trying!!!
Also, I want to mention undergarments again – since it’s been a while LOL. I just got some new bras by Cosabella: the Dolce soft bra (which I’m wearing today) and the Ever soft bra, and I LOVE THEM SO MUCH. Since I’m rather small, I can wear soft, unstructured bras, but I love the Cosabella ones because they actually DO provide support and lift, without wires. They’re the bras I want to wear ALL DAY and not take off as soon as I get home. You know what I mean, right? I have (had) a joke with my friend that if my bra’s off, I’m in for the night.
Anyway, I got the Cosabella bras from their website with a deal I found on Rue La La, so I got the bras for a steal (I posted the deal on Facebook – follow me there if you don’t already!), but I highly recommend them if you have a small cup size and like soft bras, they’re so sweet and comfortable. I did also get the Talco soft bra but I’m exchanging it for a larger size; the medium was way too tight around my ribcage.
Oh, and seriously? This outfit is so comfortable it should be illegal. And by illegal I mean not appropriate to wear outside the house. But it is 😉 And both pieces are made in the US. win/win.
