My favorites are mostly colors on the lighter side however as far as eyeshadow i'm still crazy over purple :) Please remember this is a favorites post not a products of the month post. I didn't include my skincare or foundations I tried to focus on the products that bring the color to the face rather then the products that are the base of my face. I think with the sunshine and warmer weather a nice natural face is best. Most of these products have a review somewhere on my blog if you are more curious as to why I love them so much.

I find these posts interesting when I see them because I get an insight into what others are wearing & loving. This is my second favorites post and i'm wondering if you all like them or not? I love them! I find out about products I have never heard of or products that Ive seen and wanted to try but was wondering of the quality or performance of them. I was thinking of starting a favorites: Skincare (Month) Would you be interested in reading that? I am crazy of skincare and I wish that I saw more posts like that. Maybe ill give it a go and see what happens ey? :)

I hope that you are all having a lovely holiday weekend and you have something exciting lined up. Whether it's a gathering, vacation or just relaxing at home! May it be wonderful! Speak soon!

How To: Orange Mask

Oranges are rich in vitamin C, zinc and antioxidants! By applying vitamin C regularly to your skin you will notice a much brighter complexion. I love this mask and find it to be true to the skin. The smell is nice afterwards, that is if you love the smell of fruit :) I believe it to give me a more radiant look after using so i'm loyal to it. Enjoy!

  • Juice of one orange
  • 1 egg white
  • 1tsp of honey

Application & Mixture:
Whip the egg white ,mix the orange juice and honey into the egg white. Apply to your face immediately and leave for at least 25-30 minutes. The egg white will dry a little : this is normal. Wash off with warm water, pat dry. Apply your face cream afterwards for the finishing touch :)

How To: Apricot Face Mask

Apricots are known for their hydrating and revitalizing properties, making them an excellent addition to your natural skin care routine. I found this mask to make my skin appear more so awake then in reality before application. It left my skin feeling smooth and the smell left over afterwards was sweet but settle. Enjoy!

1 Cup Dried/Smashed Apricots
2/3 Cup Warm Milk
1 Tablespoon of Honey
Dash of Sugar

Prep & Application:
Mix together all ingredients add sugar if you would like to exfoliate the skin and remove dry skin. Apply to the face let it work its magic for 20minutes then finish with a rinse of warm water! Pat dry with a hand towel.

How To: Lemon Scrub

Freshly squeezed lemons are loaded with all the good stuff ! I have used this mixture for a great while and suggest your daily moisturizer afterwards. Your skin will feel superior, i'm sure of this :) Enjoy!

4 tablespoons sea salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 fresh lemon

Mixture & Application:
First mix the olive oil and sea salt together. Once the salt gets coated by the oil, the lemon won’t dissolve it! Next cut the lemon in half and squeeze over the salt + oil. Mix and mash. Then scrub away!! Following rinse face with warm water and pat dry.

Lemons can irritate the skin so avoid if you have broken or sensitive skin . Never apply lemon on its own to the skin, always mix it with water or other ingredients. Also don’t apply lemon to the skin before sun exposure.

Ruche: An Unending Love

My Story: Waiting...
love sure to never return? The seconds passed like hours and the minutes as days.Missing him, her lover gone. Will he return to me? She waited for him each day returning to the roads once walked upon and lakes floated over by two young lovers. Forever is how long ill wait. She remembered his smile and the warmth of his skin as he held her close. True love meant to last and a burning fire within the heart they both had for one another.

What products are you loving right now?!
I think from now on I will post my favorite products every month. They do change frequently, the color tones however do remain the same. I work in an office so fun colors are 
not what you'll find in my makeup bag.

I find that these days I carry more makeup with me then I should. I have outlined the products I have have with me always even the the flow of other cosmetics is different. Perhaps I should do reviews on these products as well? I do have a Green by Nature Review coming up shortly,very excited for that :) I do love the products I own from the company! :)
