Golden Summer!

Summer is here and as much as I enjoy the sun, I hate what it does to the skin.
I am on the oily side so winters are easier. But come summer, and I start tanning. Not the good, sexy tan but the patchy, irritating one. However, I can neither stay indoors nor can I spend too much time caring for my skin. I reiterate - I am lazy. It has been four months since I got my eyebrows done!

So, my summer beauty care regime is as simple as it can get. Ample water, fruits and veggies, moisturizer, face wipes and minimal fried food. I wish I could say I sleep well but my sleep cycles are all over the place. I am wide awake at night and my eyes are glued shut in the morning. It's time I realize I am no longer a teenager.

Anyway, I started using the Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Pure Luxury Age-Defying Hair Mask and it is awesome.  Although it is a bit expensive and tedious to use, it is well worth the time and money. That kind of got the "gold" idea rolling. I have been thinking, while everyone wears candy colors and tangerines in summer, won't it be awesome to wear gold instead. What better way to beat the sun than become one!

Throwback Time!

Unfortunately, I don't own a lot of metallic outfits or makeup but I am really curious to try some. To play it safe, I am starting with a gold highlighter. I don't think I can experiment with metallic lipstick but I have seen a few girls wearing it and they looked gorgeous. So yes, if you do try it please let me know what you think!

Skirts and Scarves

Hi All,

Today, I had to decide between a photo shoot and a hike to Punchbowl, Oregon. I chose the hike and like it was destined, after hardly a quarter of a mile, I twisted my ankle. Though hubby wanted to turn and go back, I was feeling quite the hero myself. It didn't hurt much at the time, and undaunted, I hiked all the way to the bottom of the fall. I even took a leisurely, luxurious dip in the freezing water. 

Well, right now I sit with my ointment covered feet up a cardboard box, wincing in pain and typing my quixotic adventures. It is so bad that I can't walk at all right now. I just hope it gets better by tomorrow because I hate going to the doctor. 

It's a good thing that I at least had the sense to have this photo shoot last week. I have been buying so many scarves lately but this is one of my favorites. So, this time, I built the whole outfit around this scarf. I love that this outfit can work so well for work and at the same time, I would totally wear it to a sophisticated lunch.
