Yesterday, I was so winter-weary-blah that I succumbed to an urge to shop.  And yeah, retail therapy lifted my spirits.  But I won’t go on about all my loot. Shopping was a temporary buzz. And now it’s up to me to fill the last week of winter with something else – something with less moody and more beauty.

Let the countdown to Spring begin.


But ... just in case you need a retail fix yourself, here are a few must-have beauty basics from my shopping bag.

  1. This is my kind of product – a three-in-one cranberry milk toner that does it all.  Arcona Cranberry Toner
  2. I’m obsessed with this bamboo hydrating mist. Amorepacific Moisture Bound Skin Energy Hydration
  3. Be gone pasty-white skin – use this ginormous brush + bronzer duo for a barely there tan.  Marc Jacobs O!Mega Bronze + The Bronzer Brush
