A tale of a fateful trip
That started from this tropic port
Aboard this tiny ship.”

The skipper brave and sure.
Five passengers set sail that day
For a three hour tour, a three hour tour.”

WHO ARE YOU TRYING TO FOOL?  We all know Maryanne, Ginger and the millionaires wife had smuggled sunscreen in.  That show ran for YEARS, and not a single pimple or sunburn?!  Yeah right, I don’t buy that for a min.

Speaking of….What is your ABSOLUTELY-HAVE-TO-HAVE-IT-IF-YOU-GOT-STRANDED-ON-A-DESERTED-ISLAND product?  Let’s call this the “AHTHIIYGSOADI” product 🙂

My “AHTHIIYGSOADI” product is/are:



Dior Lip Glow-ALWAYS in my purse-I want to be sure I look good when we get rescued.


Seriously, this stuff is amaze. I keep it in my purse, so its likely that if my plane/boat crashed I would have at least a few days of this on hand....lucky for my SHH/Ginger Giant.


4….as if I would get 4 🙂

Since my SHH is with me, I want to be sure to keep the romance alive:)

I’m guessing if my SHH had to pick he would say:

This "pen" sterilizes the water--its a good thing we are stranded together, bc my skin would look good, but I sure would be thirsty with out him.

What’s in my VACATION makeup bag???


My vacation makeup bag isn’t all that different from my everyday makeup right now.

Over the weekend I scored some AWESOME Sephora gift cards for my Bday!  I did some updating:)

I am a big believer in scent triggered memory.  While we were on our honeymoon in Kauai, I found this smell and fell in love it smells like chocolate, orange and HEAVEN. I like to wear it on vacation so when I smell it later I will associate it with these memories:)

On vacation, eyes are important to me.  I want to look awake, but not over done.  I picked this mascara up yesterday and am VERY impressed with the results so far.  We will see how well it holds up on vacation before it gets an official review.

Eyes: DiorShow New Look

Eye shadow on a beach vacation seems unlikely to me.  This was also part of my birthday gift card purchases.  The packaging is small enough to fit in my makeup case so it made the cut.  We will see if this gets used at all.

Eyes: Two Faced Natural Eye

I am in LOVE LOVE LOVE with this cream blush.  CACTUS FLOWER by Nars is amazing.  It has the nicest golden/coral color and I love the consistency.   Its perfect for vacation!

Cheeks: Nars Cactus Flower Cream Blush

I have mentioned in other posts that I really love highlighter.  Highlighter is perfect for vacation for me because it allows for a barely there shimmer.  It also helps me look nice and awake.

Highlighter: Tarina Taranitino Dream Hyperlight

I LOVE LIPS!  AND I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS STUFF!  I wear it every single day.

Dior Lip Glow

It’s in the high to mid 80s in Cabo this week.  It will be perfectly humid, but not uncomfortable.  Just in case, Boscia Blotting Linens…No one wants to look shiny.  I also like to use these before I deplane…it helps me feel refreshed.

I am super duper serious about preventing any more sun damage.  When I get back I am going to start the treatment of my HIDEOUS sun spots.  So in the mean time I am planning to protect them as much as possible.  That said:

It won't fit in my makeup bag, but this is ESSENTIAL to my skin care.
