stila.jpgI must admit that even though the summer is long gone, I am still using bronzer. I am a natural, fair-skinned blondie and I don’t tan easily, so you could say I could verge on pastey. That means any color you see on me is fake. I use self tanner because I’m scared of burning in the sun and it’s better for you to avoid anyway, right? And it’s not the easiest thing to do in Arizona since it only rains like 10 days a year! So now it is the season when I should be more natural, although I did wear short sleeves today since it was 87 degrees,  but I am reluctant to embrace my paleness.  Plus my husband is Latino and has gorgeous tan skin and I’m just a little jealous! My bronzer of choice is Stila Sun. I love Stila’s products so much and their bronzer is one of the best selling around. A dusting on my cheeks, forehead and nose gives me a subtle glow that I think makes a big difference! I am low on bronzer and need to get more when I noticed Stila has a huge holiday gift set in a train case. It is overflowing with 4 eye shadows, 1 eye smudge pot, 1 eye liner, 3 lip glazes, 3 lip glosses, 2 lip liners, 2 cheek colors, a mascara, two makeup brushes and even my fav bronzer Stila Sun! If I could only have one makeup gift this Christmas, this would be it, I am crossing all the others off my list. Yes it is $160, but look at all it comes with! That much makeup is such a bargain and it’s all in a cute brown suede train case! Okay, I’m waking up my hubby from his nap on the couch to tell him about this right now…

    […] Here’s a few of the items I would love to find wrapped under my tree or in my stocking this year (hint hint Adrian!) I’m trying to be realistic to our budget and not list things like my most wanted handbag or diamond anything! Enjoy:) 1. A always classic, go with any outfit, Tiffany’s sterling silver bracelet. 2. Coach Allie Sunglasses in tortoise, I have been wanting these forever (they fit my face shape perfectly!) 3. Cross pendant from Electric Bling, I love the unique shape and it’s sparkly! 4. “I Like You” by Amy Sedaris, a witty, fun book on entertaining. 5. Rachel Leigh Eagle Ribbon Charm, too cute and girly, love it. 6. Stila Celebration of Color set, I mentioned this a few weeks ago, the ultimate makeup gift! 7. While we’re on the subject of beauty, a giftcard for a pedi at my fav spa Dolce. I’ve been cutting back and doing them myself since it’s an expensive habit. 8. Charlotte Ronson Speckled Henley Tee, so cute and half off at Shop Intuition. and finally 9. A sister for my Lily girl. Doesn’t she look lonely? So what are some of your holiday gift wishes? I want to hear about them whether small or big! […]
