Makeup Monday - BB Beauty Balm Stick

Welcome to Makeup Monday on Julie's Lifestyle.  I will post about a certain type of makeup, nail polish, face or hair product etc.  It will be a fun place to come visit about anything to do with beauty.  



Week 36 - Physicans Formula Super BB All-in-1 Beauty Balm Stick


Hello friends!  I hope you all had a nice weekend.  Today I'd like to share with you this new BB Balm Stick that I bought recently at Duane Reade.  I love using BB Cream and I saw that this is different as it is a balm stick that you use to apply to your face instead of cream from a tube.  I love how convenient it is to use and I applied it on my face where I needed to and then I used a makeup sponge to blend it in.  This has an SPF 30 and the color that I bought is Light and is the perfect color for my fair skin.  It also comes in Light/Medium and that is perfect for darker colored skin.  The price I paid for this is $12.95 and I am happy that it works well and blends in easily.  I love wearing and using this product and if you like using BB Cream than I would recommend you try this product.  This would be great for traveling and it's not a liquid and it won't take up too much room in your makeup bag.

* Makeup Tip:  Makeup Sponges are great for blending in BB Creams and Foundation.  You can purchase these at any drug store.  I love using these to blend in my makeup.

Do you have a favorite BB Cream that you like using?  I'd love to know. 

Thanks for stopping by and see you all next time for Makeup Monday.

White & Gold Knit Scarf

Hi friends, I hope you all had a nice holiday weekend.  I'm happy to say that I finally finished working on this knitted scarf that I have been working on for a long time.  

The yarn I used is two pieces held together and it's cream and gold colored yarn and the stitch I used is the seed stitch.





I started working on this scarf last year and I was going to make it into an infinity scarf but I changed my mind.  I decided to just make it into a regular scarf to wear.  In case you missed that post you can see it HERE with all the details of the yarn, needles, and pattern that I used.  I am happy to be wearing it for the spring as there are still some cold days we have been having. 

One by one I have decided to finish a yarn project that I have left to finish before I start a new one.  If you knit I hope I have inspired you to knit a scarf like this one too.

The Man In The Brown Suit by Agatha Christie

Hi friends!  I just finished reading the book The Man In The Brown Suit by Agatha Christie.  I would love to share with you a little bit about this book.



The book starts out with a young woman named Anne Beddingfield who is seeking adventure in her life.  Anne's adventure begins when she goes to London and is present on the Hyde Park Corner tube station platform and witnesses the mysterious death of a man.  A man in a brown suit comes forward as a doctor and pronounces him dead and then leaves the station.  The man drops a note and Anne picks it up and from there Anne tries to solve the mysterious death because the verdict from Scotland Yard is accidental death.  

This is the fourth novel by Agatha Christie and this book is an interesting read with mystery, adventure, and romance mixed into it.  If you love mystery and are a fan of Agatha Christie books then you will want to read this book. 

I liked this book but at times I was a little confused as there are many characters.  I love reading a good mystery and would recommend this.  
   

I will be sharing this book at Book Musing Monday at Mary-andering Creatively.
I will be sharing this at Read with Me at Mama Mummy Mum.
I will be sharing this with the Book Nook at Create With Joy.

Five on Friday

I am happy to be joining Amy from Love Made My Home for her Five on Friday Series. 

I'm taking five minutes of my day to share five things:

1)  I am so happy and honored to have guest blogged last week for Tuula from the Thrifty Rebel at her creative blog.  I shared a Pink Spring Wreath that I made for her Think Pink Monday.  


In case you missed this blog post you can see it HERE!

2)  I had fun guest blogging this week for Sarah and her lovely food blog Sarah's Kitchen.  I shared how to make an Easy Baked Chicken recipe.


If any of you missed that blog post you can see it HERE!

3)  I'm so happy and thankful for some new followers who have joined my blog recently.  I want  to welcome and thank you all.  I also would like to thank all of my loyal readers (friends) for taking the time out of your busy days to read my blog posts and and to leave such lovely comments.  I really appreciate you all and you make my day!  You all are the best!  

4)  I'm so happy to see the snow in my garden slowly disappearing and melting away.  I love that I can see the ground now.  

You can see in this photo below that I will soon have tulips and daffodils blooming.  I'm so happy that spring is here and I love to see the flowers blooming in my garden.



5)  Here you can see Bosco is looking down the street and he is waiting patiently for me to take him for his morning walk.  I tried to get a photo of him looking at me but he wouldn't look when I kept calling his name!  That silly dog hates his photo taken but I can't help trying!


That is my Five on Friday for this week and thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great weekend and have fun with whatever makes you happy.



I will be sharing this with Amy from Love Made My Home for her Five on Friday link party that she is hosting.
