Bath Bum and Beauty

I have been wanting to take pictures of Hattie getting in the tub for quite a while. I've needed to replace the old pictures in her bathroom because they are way too similar and I'm tired of looking at them. One night I brought my camera up and did it! I think they turned out so cute {I must say, she has the cutest backside EVER!} Love my girl!

{Beauty Review}

I have seen many posts lately with peoples fave beauty products. They are all so fun! Sooo...I thought that I would follow suit and post some of my all time favorite things that I use when getting all dolled up.

-Bare Minerals Powder Foundation

I have used so many foundations over the years and this one is BY FAR my favorite. It goes on evenly, isn't cakey, and lasts all day. I love it because it's pure minerals and like the picture says, you can sleep in it...and I do all the time...shhhh...don't tell :)

-Acne Free Face Wash

I used ProActive for a long time but I got so tired of paying so much for such a small bottle. Then my brother's dermatologist recommended AcneFree and said that it is the exact same as ProActive but you get more for a lot less! I picked it up at WalMart and have been loving it ever since!

-MAC Paint Pot in Bare Study

I put this on my entire eyelid before applying my eyeshadow. It makes the color more vibrant and it keeps my shadow in place all day without rubbing off or creasing.

-CoverGirl Blush in Cheekers

This is a new found favorite. I was in need of some new blush and I read in COSMO that this is the closest shade to the infamous NARS Orgasm but ton's less ($26 vs $4). I picked this up and am loving it so far!

-Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Medium

I apply this before bare minerals and it gives me the perfect "tan" without paying the price of wrinkles and age spots and it even has SPF 30. If you know me, you know that I won't go tanning and I use sunscreen/self tanner like it's going out of style. The reason(s): 1. I have faily light / sensitive skin 2. Melanoma runs in my family and I don't want cancer 3. I don't want to bring on wrinkles and age spots any faster than they will come :)

-Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

I have been using this little pink and green bottle since I was 12 and have never turned back. LOVE IT!

-Rusk Wired

I have naturally curly/wavy/crazy hair and I have to use product in order for it to do anything that I want. This is another thing that I have been using for years. I put this through my wet hair before I style it and it works really well and smells nice too.

-Paul Mitchell Freeze and Shine spray

I cannot say enough about this. It is my life saver! It smells lovely, keeps my hair in place but still manageable, and it doesn't give that nasty film or flakes that some other hairsprays do. I can't live without this stuff!

Now tell me, what are some of your favorites?

K, so that little bum is ADORABLE! She is so stinkin' cute!
I can't wait to try some of those products, especially the mineral foundation... I have always wondered if it really lives up to the hype. And I use the same blush. :D
So fun to read.

Cute pictures! I just switched to Bare Minerals this Christmas (it is hard changing your make-up routine!) and I am loving it too! I want to go to the store and buy some of that Aveeno moisturizer now! Thanks for the tips!

Girl you know I love the MAC paint pot! I also just started using Bare Minerals-love. I may have to switch to the Aveeno from my Jergens though.
