Best Booty in Hollywood??

As previously mentioned, it’s my Birthday Month.  (if I could, I would be playing 50 Cent In Da Club for your listening pleasure as you read this)

I love birthday month for LOADS of reasons.  SHH and I had our very first intoxicating kiss on my birthday 3 years ago.  Every year since then, SHH plan’s some Fab Beach Getaway. First it was some islands south of Costa Rica, then it was Santa Barbara, this year it is CABO!

Bikini’s have arrived, super fab beach floppy hat purchased (now I have to figure out how to pack it-PLS LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS) and everything else has been packed for 3 days…we don’t leave till next Wednesday 😉

Since we are just a few days away from 5 days of bikinis, I am in full on MISSION BEACH BODY mode.  Check out this video I found on one of my fav blogs http://www.ezliving.com:

I did this workout after my cardio last night and it kicked my booty (pun totally intended) 🙂  Seriously, LEGIT.  There is nothing better than post workout soreness.

The most important beach essential?  SUNSCREEN.  SUNSCREEN.  SUNSCREEN.  I spend WAY too much money on skin care to skimp on SUNSCREEN.  Not to mention I married a quasi Ginger (nothing but love for all the Gingers in the house!)

Right now I am using Peter Thomas Roth Max Sheer All Day Defense with SPF 30.  (my SHH will clearly need something stronger than an SPF 30–stay tuned)

In My Professional Product Whore Opinion?

I love it.  I had been struggling with sample after sample of sunscreens.  I had tried Tinted Moisturizers with SPF, Shiseido SPF, BB Cream with SPF….its exhausting and hard on my face.  As you all know, I hate all the layering of makeup and my new Muard Renewal Complex makes my skin so pretty and radiant that I don’t need to wear any coverage.  I LOVE that this DOESN’T feel like sunscreen…NOT EVEN A LITTLE.  It is easily my favorite thing about this product.  AND better yet, it is also rich in antioxidants and SHEER and PERFECTLY moisturizing for my skin.

Shellac Experiment Day 9:

Grow out is getting more obvious–but its likely that the untrained eye wouldn’t notice.  No chips, or peeling and still WICKED shiny!

My Professional Product Whore Opinion:

My biggest pet peeve (aside from people who smoke in public places) is feeling sticky.  I HATE IT.

The St. Tropez Everyday Gradual Self Tanner is the worst kind of sticky.  It transfers and takes FOREVER to dry.  And while it isn’t the worst smelling sunless tanner….its DEFINITELY not the best.

I do however love the color and it goes on really well.  I didn’ t experience any streaking or blotches.  Its a really nice even color and I feel like it lasted a long time.  So if you can stand the stickiness, this is your product.

I did try this on my face.  HUGE MISTAKE.  I broke out BAD.  Infact, I might even blame this product for the Hydrocloric Acid incident.  Had it not been for the lotion induced zit, I wouldn’t have a scar.

I’m curious to hear your opinions on Sunless Tanners…anyone have one they can’t live without?
