I've blogged about my love for bareMinerals before (see post here) & I'm back to share my new favorite light weight foundation -- Complexion Rescue tinted hydrating gel cream!  While I'm still a fan of the mineral powder foundation, and do sometimes grab for the bareskin brightening serum foundation, this, this is now my everyday go-to.

It comes in 10 different shades (I have neutral light skin, so I wear "vanilla").  You only need a pea size amount and can apply with fingers or their newly engineered smoothing face brush.  And as far as hydration?  Thats not a joke! -- it seriously feels like you are spraying your face with an Evian spray water bottle.

I made a little video blog post about it & application.  ((Y'all -- I have some learning to do with my camera, sorry it's not focused correctly)):

And then here is my favorite demo from Sr. Manager of Product Development @ bareMinerals.  Really makes you think about what's going on your skin.

No silicone.  No oils.  No fragrances. No parabens.
Light coverage and super moisturizing, silky smooth. (insert heart eyes emoji cause i love it)

I was given my own shade of Complexion Rescue for purpose of review.
All opinions are my own.

So I feel like I'm cheating on my favorite brown leather clutch, but this new crossbody, Susan, is my new best friend.  Right on trend for Spring and Summer this is part of fashionABLE's new Spring 2015 line.  Also included in the line is a second (gorgeous) crossbody bag, the Agnes, that is a little bigger and has a bit more detail.  Of course you'll also find some brand new scarves designs.  

All leather and scarves are hand constructed in Africa giving vulnerable women sustainable training and business.  Every product you purchase comes with a handwritten "Able" statement and is named after a women who helped created it.  My bag is the "Susan."  And because of the purchase of this bag she is "Able to save for my future."  So it is far more than a fashion statement (and let's face it -- it really is fashionable), but it gives extra meeting to the suffix of that word.  Your purchase gives ability.

Sticking with black leather, I'm also pumped about the new clogs from Lotta From Stockholm.  I know several of you are on the fence about clogs and the such, but I couldn't endorse them more (especially this company).  I first bought a pair of their clogs when I was pregnant with Henry.  They were the only shoes I wore because they were so comfortable.  I'm wearing the Low Wood Black in these pics & also have the Peep Toe Clogs in Tan, but the new spring line has so many new colors and variations, I'm feeling my collection might not end at just two pairs...

And one final Spring line that I need to rave about today is from Karen Kane.  I'm loving these track pants and am excited to share more from their Baja Collection in posts to come.  Lots of great lines and patterns and always quality.  And -- all made in America.

Lots of favorites all in one post.  Now all the snow in the south needs to go away so we can really jump into spring!! 

what makes her happy

I asked Magnolia today...

me:  "Are you happy?"
M: "yea."
me: "what makes you happy?"
M: (slowly and thinking hard) "smelling flowers in spring... and peaches!"

Oh, my sweet girl. Yes!  I'm tired of the cold too and ready for the fruits of spring.  It is coming dear one.  It is coming.
