Oh, I am ever so grateful to my dermatologist for turning me on to this lovely product. I have tried and been unsatisfied with many moisturizers and for many different reasons. "My skin feels so greasy!" or "This burns the minute I put it on!" are common shouts heard from the bathroom. This moisturizer passes by with flying colors because it not only moisturizes my Sahara desert skin but also makes it feel just like...skin. I know, it's amazing! It just works, no fluff.
What would summer be without sunscreen? When your skin already feels oily from the humidity and the sun who wants to slather on a filmy stick? This goes on so smooth it almost feels like a primer, giving your skin a fantastic matte finish. The best part is that this has a long-lasting silky finish, with light-reflecting particles to make your skin glow that much more in the sun.

All good things come to an end, and that means a really wonderful vacation in the City of Lights! I have never seen such beautiful architecture and art, every corner had another surprise. If any of you have the opportunity in your life to go to Europe, definitely take the time to just look around, soak it up, and enjoy the gorgeous city.
Now on to the good part. The shopping in Paris was a dream! It was so hard to choose from one unique shop to another. Not only were the boutiques amazing, but even the pharmacies stocked hard-to-find luxe beauty goods. It was hard to choose what I would blog about first, but I have chosen a worthy contender.
Colette is the Kitson of Paris. This means that it is the mecca of insider trends. Every inch of the three-level building is bursting with the next big thing in Parisian style. There are books, CDs, skincare, makeup, fragrance, toys, accessories, and high-end fashion, just to name a few. There is even a restaurant in the basement, heating up the building and making it the perfect escape on a chilly day (but unfortunately not so great in the sweltering heat).
It was so hard to choose from all of the quirky finds at the super boutique, the dollar being so weak right now, that I narrowed it down to three. I bought this cute pair of skinny black jeans, a Colette mix CD, and a cute handmade teddy bear key chain.
If you ever have the opportunity to go the Paris, put Colette on your list. It's a madhouse of quirk, creativity, and people, but it is so worth it.
