ONE LAST LOOK BEFORE SUMMER + CONTEST

excuse-my-blog-one-last-look-1

Hello everyone and happy Monday!

I thought I’d give you one last look at a sweater weather outfit before I head into exclusively summer style. These photos were taken by one of my best friends, Emily! It looks like the sun is finally sticking around Seattle, but even if it doesn’t…I’ll still be out with shorts and a tank top! Why, you ask? Cause I’m headed to Barcelona, Spain all summer! I’ve never been there before and I’m really looking forward to it. My only hesitation? My Spanish isn’t quite up to par….and little did I know that they also speak something called Catalan over there as well. Pretty sure I’m going to be constantly trying to decipher what language is being spoken to me at any given point in time. And I’ve got news for ya- Google translate…not as accurate as you might think. My boyfriend may be a little worse off though, as he didn’t even take Spanish in school (although he is fluent in German). He’s been trying to study by using an app on his phone before going over there. So the other day I was quizzing him, and asked him what ‘dog’ was in Spanish. His answer: “Pedro?” So as you can see, we will have no problems getting by. All I have to say is thank God we will have smart phones helping us through it all. It will definitely be an adventure!

CONTEST

On another quick note, I wanted to let you know that I have partnered with Pucker Punch Cosmetics for a contest running until this Thursday! If you haven’t heard of them, please let me brag about them for a quick second because I’m kind of obsessed with everything they stand for.

Here are the reasons I am absolutely in love with them (keep in mind I started with 3 and the list just kept growing):

1) All of their ingredients are naturally derived.

2) Their lip glosses help give volume to your lips by stimulating collagen. I can always use some upper-lip plumping. The more the better!

3) The lips glosses contain SPF 14, so you won’t sweat it when your precious pout is out in the sun.

4) The company is Fido-friendly. None of their products are ever tested on animals!

5) The company cares about the environment. All of their lip gloss tubes are recyclable and the pretty little package it comes in is made up 100% of natural fibers.

6) By buying their products, you are donating to an awesome cause! The founder was born with a cleft lip, nose, and palette and underwent reconstructive surgery. She definitely does not take for granted the ability to smile and uses Pucker Punch as a platform to showcase that. 15% of Pucker Punch’s net proceeds go to Operation Smile, a company who has provided more than 2 million evaluations and over 200,000 free surgeries around the glove for people born with cranio-facial deformities.

7) You can customize your lip glosses with a scent and/or flavor of your choice!

8) And duh…their glosses are to die for! See me in ‘Sweet Spot’ below (I also have ‘Toast and Saved By The Belle’ and love both):
