? Tuesday: Favorite Anthem

PicMonkey Sample

When I drive around in my car with the windows rolled down I love to belt a great song at the top of my lungs. I call songs perfect for this anthems. We all have them. Perhaps you sing yours in the shower or while you dance around when you’re home alone on Friday nights. Whatever the situation, I want to know what your song is. Or songs. As many as you’d like to list.

Currently, my go-to jam is ‘Classy Girls’ by The Lumineers. I sometimes listen to that thing on repeat 10+ times. And actually, their whole album is good for this – ‘Dead Sea’, ‘Ho Hey’, and ‘Stubborn Love’ are also favorites. The Lumineers is a departure from my normal power girl anthems by Lady Gaga or Kelly Clarkson.

Question Tuesday: What is Your Makeup Routine?

I’ve had a hate-hate relationship with makeup my whole life. Back when my mom wanted to teach me how to use the stuff, I could not be bothered. Now I’m an adult woman who has survived 30 years being able to count the amount of times I’ve worn a full face of makeup on one hand.

So here’s my question: What is your normal beauty routine each morning? What products are your favorite? Can you suggest a good facial moisturizer for dry skin? Any special tips you have for someone who dreads wearing makeup on a daily basis to make it less painful?

I’m getting ready to overhaul my makeup drawer because everything in it is old and crusty. Time for a new face, 2014!! Thanks in advance for your responses!!
