I am enjoying my time off line and thinking of post ideas as I spend my days leisurely reading, walking and relaxing in the warm summer sun.
Today is the first day of August...and I thought that I would check in.
I have started this book and have read about 5 books in the past few weeks.
This one is taking me awhile to get into it but the characters are quirky and their lives seem very dysfunctional.
I have been wearing these lovely fresh water grey baroque pearls most days.
Darling daughter gave me these last Christmas.
They elevate the simple outfits that I have been wearing.
With the hot days I have been wearing a simple black bamboo dress that is loose.
My straw hat and prescription sunglasses have been essential to keep the sun off my face.
I tend to keep my summer skincare routine light and simple.
Eminence sunscreen powder is water resistant and goes on easily with a brush.
I use it after cleansing and moisturizing.
Then apply with a big brush a dusting of Jane Iredale's foundation.
Lastly a light application of
Jane Iredale's mascara and her lip plumper in the Tokyo shade.
Keeping hydrated with a lime margarita on the deck!
So I will close for now and get back to my book.
I hope that your summer is going well.
I will be back soon.
