Good Morning Ladies & Gents. Hope everyone is finding some light and love in this cancelled year. We are fortunate to have a sail boat and have been spending tons of time doing that on weekends along with many a backyard soiree with friends.
Something else I have been doing plenty of is shopping! And guess what? My new favorite online store is.....Amazon!
Hello, so many items, such great prices, and can we talk about two day shipping?? So, in honor of the big Amazon Sale that's going on right now, I wanted to share some of my favorite things that I've purchased from Amazon in the last few months.
First up, this Body Bling Lotion from Scott Barnes.
Have you ever wondered how those Hollywood ladies look so dewy fresh and glowy on the red carpet? Well, wonder no more.
I put a dime size squeeze of this in the palm of one hand, and then rub them together and slather this stuff on my legs, shoulders, and collar bone to give them that summer shimmer that only a Goddess should have. It's not a bronzer, but really just gives you a beautiful shimmer. I swear by this in the summer time, especially when wearing swimsuits, shorts, or dresses. Wearing an off the shoulder blouse? Add a hint of shimmer to your collar bone for a sexy glow.
Click the link above and get yours. You'll thank me.
Next up is this fabulous one piece swim suit that is a recent purchase. At 56 years of age, it's hard to find a swimsuit that is flattering, covers ALL of my hiney, helps whittle my waistline, AND comes in over 20 styles and colors BUT, this one fits the bill.
And at less than $30.00, you can score more than one. This one is chocolate brown, but I also have it in black.
Next up is this ah-mazing pair of sunglasses. I get compliments on them all the time! They are oh-so-chic and come in five different styles so you are sure to find one that fits your inner Diva.
They have designer touches and look super expensive but are only $15.99 .

Now, while we are talking about chic and stylish, I simply must tell you about this Brixton hat!
I wear it ALL THE TIME and it traveled all over Europe with me last summer. It's the perfect accompaniment to the oh-so-fab sunglasses, as you can see here.
It comes in eight different colors so you're sure to find one that works with all you summer outfits.
On to household items.
I came across this pretty marble pedestal fruit bowl one day while looking for something else but I made an impulse purchase, and I couldn't be happier that I did.
It is perfect for the center of the island and looks great sitting atop this marble cutting board that I picked up at World Market right before quarantine so I went ahead and linked it for you.
Next up; this little gem. I may be late to the Instapot game, but regardless, I got here. The hubs and I will be embarking on an RV adventure in August, our first long RV trip, and we knew that we needed something to cook with that would be easy so this is a godsend!
We've cooked with it several times now, to get the hang of it before setting out, using recipes that I found on Pinterest and they were all delicious.
Now, let's move on to a couple more beauty products that I want to share with you gals.
This Trio of lovelies is a must have for any woman over 35!
The Hyaluronic Hydrating Serum will help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, lift away age spots and brighten up the skin for youthful luminescence. I use it before I put on any makeup or sunblock.
The Retinol Serum helps turn back the clock of aging, giving you smooth, refreshed skin the moment you use it.
And the Vitamin C will leave your face feeling refreshed. At $19.95 for all three, you have yourself a heck of a deal!
Now for those days when we just need a little something extra for under our eyes, this little gal works wonders. HELLO, BRIGHT EYES!
This best-selling Tula Eye Balm, now with rosehip oil (a plant-based retinol alternative) & hydrating rosewater will instantly hydrate, cool, and fill in fine lines around the eye. It also helps with dark circles and puffiness! When we are heading out for a day on the boat, I put on my SPF and then roll this under each eye to give me an instant wide awake look. Dab on your nude lipstick and you're off!
And lastly, whereas I use my Trio (above) during the day, this Hydrating Mask from Colleen Rothschild is what I use at night. It also contains Hyaluronic Acid, which aids with skin plumping ( who couldn't use that? ) and leaves your skin dewy fresh in the morning. Extra bonus for use during the colder months when heaters dry out the air and your skin at night.
For all you frequent flyers out there, when we get around to traveling again, this is great for combating that super dry airplane air. It's perfect for those long flights too that leave your face in that superdry, filtered, air for way too long.
Apply before boarding and you'll arrive at your destination looking fabulous and refreshed. Just apply some lipstick and a hint of blush, and you're all set.
That's it for my Amazon Round-up today ladies, however, if you ever have any questions for me regarding any of the items I've shown you please feel free to drop me a line. I'm happy to give additional details about each product and why I made my purchase.
