One year later, still One Boston

Today marks the one year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings. Seems crazy that already 1 year has past, as it feels like yesterday: hearing the "rumor" of a bombing spreading through the pub we were at after the Red Sox game, feeling fear of wondering if more bombs were to come, feeling sadness for the victims and our city, the shutdown a few days later as a manhunt ensued with Boston Strong ending.

There have been many local and national tributes but one of the best I've seen is this Dear World: Boston Marathon, a collection of photos of the survivors at the finish line. Dear World is a larger photography and story-telling project by Robert X. Fogarty.  Take a moment to scroll through and read, if you haven't already, and certainly we will all be thinking of the victims, the survivors, and Boston, my great city today.

Spring Pastels

My last Houzz Ideabook focused on bringing in spring pastels to the home, in a non-cheesy, non-nursery way.  I guess after such a dreary, cold winter, I was really ready to embrace light, fresh, happy colors. There is a lot out there from candles, pillows, wine glasses, and more. Check out my new Ideabook!



What foundation do you use?

I'm on the eternal search for any woman... what is the best face foundation for me? I've tried all different brands, at all different price points; from a department store, from CVS. I've tried powders, BB creams, tinted moisturizers, liquid foundations, liquid to powder foundations....I think you get the picture.  And each time a new foundation/face makeup product that I buy runs out, I didn't like that particular one enough to purchase it again. So the process starts all over.  Whenever I go to a makeup counter and have my makeup done, I love the product(s) they use and buy the foundation, then despise it when I use at home, never quite getting my make up to look as they did it in the store.  So, I have sensitive, combination skin, I'd say.  I'd prefer to have a do it all product with some coverage, and it should have SPF, and mattifying power.

So, what foundation do you use? What ones have you used and liked or not liked?  Thanks for the tips!



Midi Skirts for Spring

Now that we've had a few consistent days of 50 degree+ weather, I am ready to retire the heavy winter clothes and unearth my packed away spring clothes. I've had my eye on a few midi skirts as a new spring purchase.  Each of the below, while a different style, I could see adding to my closet. I am leaning towards the Tibi, if I save my pennies. Which one is your fave?
