Pink is my absolute favorite color, and if I am having an off day and lacking confidence there is one thing that will boost my self-esteem and bring back my poise instantaneously. What\’s my secret? Pink lip color… the hotter the better! Generally my face is bare from makeup besides mascara of course, this is because it\’s all about my lip color. I am usually not enthusiastic about lipstick. You see I am more of a lipgloss or lip stain kind of girl. So in order for me to wear a pink lipstick it better be out of this world.
I recently tried out a new pink lipstick, and let me tell you it is absolutely out of this world! It is by Hourglass Cosmetics which can be found at Sephora and let me just say you do not want to miss out on Femme Rouge velvet creme lipstick, their new fall lip line. This is the line that includes an out of this world bright pink lipstick called Fever!
Check out this absolutely gorgeous color! It is not waxy or heavy which is a serious plus in my book.

Even though I spent my whole life in Michigan I still appreciate the beauty the surrounds me. I honestly don\’t think Michigan gets enough credit for it\’s beauty and what it is able to offer. During the summer there are many roadside stands filled with fabulous produce. Or you can drive out to a local farm and go pick your produce. During the summer months Michigan grows anything from raspberries, peaches and corn to cantaloupe, watermelon and tomatoes. If you can grow it you can get it here, well unless it\’s coconuts, pineapple, oranges or lemons. We can\’t grow those here. During the fall you can go to the farm and pick your own pumpkins or apples. You can stand anywhere in Michigan and be six miles away from clean water. It\’s a luxurious life us Michiganders have been able to live.
