LBL 7 12 13 Life Beyond Lipgloss   07/12/13

Whew – that was a long week, wasn’t it? Welcome to Friday! This week we got our glow going with Bare Minerals Faux Tan, tried on MAC’s All About Orange (their second collection centered on the ‘it’ shade of summer) and visited the tropics and NYC thanks to tarte’s Rainforest Glow and Park Avenue Princess revamp. But life is about more than beauty products, here are a few links that made us happy this week:

Just try not to feel a little bit happier when looking at our Image of the Week (above). It’s a view from below of an art installation in Agueda, Portugal created to “turn traditional shopping streets into an engaging visual experience”.

    My week has been blah too! However, it’s getting better tonight because after work is sushi with the ladies, and then tomorrow night is pizza and movies with more ladies! Sometimes I get so caught up in being a wife and mom that I forget I need to just be ME. (Lordy, I should like the beginning of an essay from Ladies Home Journal or something…)

    But that photo of the umbrellas is fantastic! I think it needs to be my desktop wallpaper….

    I’m super glad the week is over. A bunch of people were on vacation today and I was trying to cover for them a bit and I had my own stuff to do that had to get done TODAY also. But I was really excited to try a new restaurant today! Delicious Thai curry and cocktails :)

    This rainy weather has been KILLING me – over here on the East Coast. This umbrella photo, however, is stunning. Decorating with umbrellas is such a great concept. Thank you for sharing! We have a huge multi-colored, (think rainbow), Totes umbrella, that definitely reminds me not to be blue on rainy days. This week I am reeling over the fact that my tomatoes are turning RED!!!!!!

    We just got Netflix in our house and I’ve been trying to get into Parks & Recreation. I’m doing the fast forward method, but every time I see Nick Offerman and that supremely righteous ‘stache, I hit play. He is a magnificent beast of manliness. I especially love the scenes he has with his real-life wife, Megan Mullally :) Kristen Bell will be an awesome addition, albeit short term.
