How I Feel About…

1.  Orthodontic Bracelets

Daily Candy

Okay, I get the multi-colored bracelet trend …I really do. 

This, in my opinion, is taking it a little too far.

Perhaps if I were in sixth grade, I would think otherwise.  I just hope that adults don’t plan on wearing these.  The metal brackets scattered throughout the bracelets are just too much.

2.  Reese Witherspoon’s New Belly Tattoo

US Magazine

Oh Reese …say it isn’t so!!

3.  Origins VitaZing SPF 15 Energy Boosting Moisturizer with Mangosteen

Origins, $35 

I purchased this moisturizer in the Spring and honestly, didn’t too much care for it.  I think I had heard so much hype about it that I thought it was going to be a miracle worker. 

Okay, it may not be a miracle worker, but now that I’ve decided to try it out again, I’ve created a love for this product.  I think that in the past, I was using too much at one time.  You just need the smallest, pea-sized amount to cover your whole face.

It’s not quite a tinted moisturizer, but it gives my face the slightest bit of coverage to where I don’t find a need for foundation.  Add concealer, bronzer, and mascara …then I’m out the door!

My deal with tinted moisturizers is that they aren’t moisturizing enough on my (oily) skin to take the place of a my regular moisturizer.  However, when putting a tinted moisturizer on top of my regular foundation, it becomes all too greasy.

I’ve also become a fan of taking a little drop of foundation and mixing it in with my facial moisturizer.  This Origins product is the best for doing that!  …especially if I’m feeling tired because it really brightens & livens up my face.  Plus, my skin feels (& looks) fantastic without any foundation on it for once!

    Ack! I didn't know Reese got that tattoo, that seems so unlike her!

    I hate the 70's trend. Mainly, because I hate big, bulky clothing that makes you appear larger than you are.

    I'm definitely with you on the tatoo…Don't li at all and wonder why Reese was thinking!! And as much as I love Reese and this she almost always looks fab, tar swimsuit is not flattering either.

    And I've not seen those bracelets before – what a strange idea!
