Blog awards, thank you's, and my must have beauty product.

I love hearing from readers - comments, questions - they make my day.   I received an email from a reader this week, Lynnie D, who asked me if I could only carry one beauty product with me at all time, what would it be?

I didn't even have to think about it  - I love this product that much.   I carry Benefit Cosmetics Benetint Pocket Pal with me everywhere.   I am on my fourth one (actually fifth, but I don't count that one since the Air France bag inspector stole it on my honeymoon, Merci lady).

Benetint Pocket Pal - $20
I am pretty sure you have heard of Benetint, it has been a favorite of Beauty Mags for years now. But if not, here is the skinny.

Benetint is a lip/cheek tint.  It starts out light, but you can control the amount of color you want with application.  It gives your lips this flushed, I just made out with my lover, look and it stays around for a long time.  It works great on every skin tone and is super versitile, working as both a lip and cheek tint. Because it is a stain, I found a bottle tends to last me longer then a normal lipstick.  If you don't need the gloss, they also sell just the tint.

I was also so thrilled to see that Lulu was given two blog awards this week!

 Paige over at the Final Clothes-Out, have very kindly given Lulu a Versatile Blogger award. How nice is that?  She has a great blog and I highly recommend you check it out.  The girl has great taste.

I also found out that Cait from Book Geekery (if you are a book lover, you will dig her blog. She has some really cute things) gave Lulu a Stylish Blogger award.   

A very big thank you for both of these!

The rules of both of these say that I have to tell you 7 random facts about myself.  I feel like people come to Lulu for great products and not me, really - but I am game if you are.

1.  I own too many books.  No really, I do.  I read about 3 books a week.
2.  I am crazy for vintage, art deco and found photography.
3.  I lived in a "haunted" apartment for three years.
4.  I really, really want to take an extended road trip this summer.
5.  I love to cook, but I won't cut raw chicken.
6. I love to sing loudly and offkey in the car while driving.
7. I like to go night swimming in the ocean.

I am also supposed to call out some blogs I love.  I am actually working on Lulu's blogroll (since I have SO many I love) and that way, they are up all the time and not just in this entry.

Thanks again, Lynne, Paige and Cait.  You guys made my week!


  1. I'm with you on that raw chicken! Congrats on the awards.

  2. I'm with you on everything except the haunted apartment and the night ocean swimming (I'm afraid of sharks at night!) But i love to swim in pools at night. Also, I had friends who lived in an apartment they thought was haunted in college; weird things would happen all the time, like pennies moving across the room by themselves and doors shutting by themselves. The fact that the house was old and the foundation and floors probably not level might have had something to do with it. But I had to admit, it was odd.

  3. Congratulations on the awards!
    3 books a week?!
    Wouldn't I like to browse through that pile!!

  4. Reading random facts is one of my favourite things to do! Your living in haunted apartment sounds a bit scary. And oh, I do sing loud while driving alone. It feels nice!


  5. Congrats on the awards! And thanks for the makeup tip. That sounds like great lip gloss, maybe I will get some.

  6. Wow, firstly let me say, so sorry, for being so late on commenting on this! I've had pneumonia so I've been 'out of order' for a bit haha.

    I'm with you on never cutting raw chicken! My sister-in-law was cutting raw chicken, and sliced a bit of her finger off! eeeek.

    And 3 books a week? I am so jealous!!!!


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. You have made my day - Lulu.
