As Summer slowly winds down, the air gets cooler, and the tans begin fade (nooooooo!) we try to hold onto every little bit that we still can.
Since I really do look forward to Fall, the ‘losing-my-tan thing’ is what bums me out the most. I’ve been retired from the tanning beds for years, but that hasn’t stopped me from getting an off-season glow! I’ve talked about some of my favorite self tanning products many – times – before, but I wanted to share a few of my current favorites, as well as some tan-preservation tips with you!
Ohh, Influenster, you’ve made me so very happy. I was recently chosen to receive an iconic VIP VoxBox – the Yves Saint Laurent Beauty Box. Gahh, so exciting! I’ve been doing a bit of vacationing this summer, so it’s taken me a while to get these product reviews up – but I finally had some time to work on it 🙂 …
Not long ago, someone suggested that I create an account on Influenster.com – and oh my gosh, I am SO glad that I did!
What is Influenster? “Influenster is a community for social media ‘hotshots’ to share news, products, and reviews”
Aside from the fun I find in reviewing products and earning “badges” on the site – I’ve been given a ton of opportunities to be sent free items for review! I’ve passed on quite a few, because I want to be sure that the types of items I agree to review are products I may actually use. Just last week, I qualified for one of their fun campaigns and I received my first VoxBox!
I am so excited – for a few reasons! Last year, my parents bought me this wonderful Canon camera, and for a while it worked just perfectly! One day it began giving me strange error messages & stopped shooting. Getting it fixed has been on my eternal to-do list for months &this past weekend I finally decided to ship it out to be repaired. I got all of the equipment together to bring to the post office and to my surprise, while test shooting – it worked! So, for now, my baby is back in action 🙂
With it’s miraculous recovery came another bit of exciting news … on my camera were quite a few photos from the past year! I wanted to share some of them here.
I’m so glad that I was able to get all of my pictures, especially the dozens on dozens from our vacation to the Cayman Islands! I can’t wait to print them.
I also cannot wait to start using my camera for this little blog of mine 🙂
