currently loving...

happy september, beauties! can you believe we're already entering the final quarter of 2013?! the year is flying by; my 10 year old commented on how fast the year has gone by, so i know it is most certainly the case {a kid saying the year is going by fast? how often does that happen...??}

ok, enough of my rant, LOL

it's been some time since i shared current faves, i am. i had to narrow it down a lot for this post, but don't worry, i'll be sharing those omitted-for-now goodies with you in the coming weeks ~ i've resolved to get back to this series of posts, even if it's only one or two things  ~ so, take a look...

i posted recently that the brand had extended its range of BBs, and since then was given the privilege to receive my own for use. i have to say i'm in love! my recent experiences with BB creams from other brands have been ho-hum {mainly because they've been way off the mark with regard to color}, but MAC's beauty balm* {in dark} is simply fabulous. not only for making my skin look more even-toned, but is {like their others in the P+P range} a great primer; the finish is gorgeous and it has an spf!

with a wide range of colorful products to create any look, from barely there to bold, this brand as a whole has really impressed me. if you're not familiar with Prestige*, i highly recommend you check them out! you may consider starting with their new WonderGloss nail polishes {uber-glossy and wears extremely well}, any Shimmering Trio Mineral loose powder eyeshadows {which can be worn sheer or intense, applied wet or dry, and stays in place all day}, or their pretty Illuminizer {it adds just the right amount of sheen to wherever you apply it}.

i confess, i've seen these cuties* for years, but it wasn't until just a couple of months ago that i actually used one {two actually}. i have to say since then i've tried to make up for my late-to-the-party status {but hey, better late than never, right?}, and have made up for it by collecting {almost} every flavor. :)

other things i'm currently loving:
i discovered this blog and iHeartRadio show thanks to a retweet from a  fab celeb makeup artist i follow, Troy Jensen {@itstroyjensen}; how-to maven, Courtney {@how2girl}, offers tips and diy projects ranging from beauty to home, entertaining and decor that are simple and to-the-point. visit her soon!

these two shows  are completely different, but fabulous just the same... :)
The Mary Tyler Moore Show
this much-loved, groundbreaking, classic tv sitcom is such an enjoyable show, it's hard to believe that when it debuted back in the 70s {before i was born!} many people didn't really "get" it; i love that so many of the topics are still relevant to today, and the humor is spot on; the entire cast is brilliant! i'm currently about half through season 6 of 7 {i've been borrowing the dvds from my library}, and suffice it to say, i am just enamored...

Breaking Bad
with just less than a handful of episodes remaining in the last half of this fifth {and final} season, i'm on the edge of my seat {like every other fan of the show} just waiting to discover how Walter White's tale will all unfold and ultimately wrap up. i'm sad to see the show go, but i know i'll always hold it up as one of the best tv shows that has been produced. are you watching?!

enjoy the rest of your week, beauties! and if you have anything you're currently loving, leave a comment and share ~ i'd love to know!
