The Teen Choice Awards are on now YAY and there is a commercial break plus it is August 1st tomorrow, so I thought I'd share with you some thoughts about summer that I had this weekend. I'm beginning to think that I should tune out all of the summer fashion (and makeup) advice. Let's get real. The only essential item I wear every single day? Sunglasses! I mean hardly anyone ever sees my eyes in summer because they are always covered by my sunglasses! So I'm starting to ask myself - why bother even with eye makeup?

Why can't I find a single interesting beauty topic to post about and share with you after reading nearly 200 subjects from various publications? I'm sorry, but after seeing a video regarding new magnetic fake eyelashes (huh?) I was left feeling as if I had writer's block.

I am thrilled to share an American, luxurious and natural skincare brand: Nonesuch. We hear a lot about natural products that come from the earth. Well, Nonesuch products come from the sea to be exact an oyster farm. With no preservatives, chemicals, dyes or perfumes, these products are derived from harvested marine life found in the waters off the coast of Maine. Nonesuch supports (as does the state) a tradition of independent workers who harvest from the sea. Also, a percentage of profits is channeled to organizations supporting clean waters and a sustainable working waterfront. I am using the Face Oil and loving it. I really needed a hydrating anti-oxidant and most Vitamin C serums as well...
