I’ve got to admit, the Queen at the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 Olympics was pretty epic. Especially with Daniel Craig playing James Bond and of course Mr. Bean’s musical spectacle. But beyond all the sporty athleticism of the world, let’s talk about Olympic beauty!

Talk about an exclusive!

Everyday Minerals Mineral Makeup Carnauba Quad Kit Summer Beauty Everyday Minerals

Last week I got a great little package from my friends at Everyday Minerals all the way from Austin, TX. They come in 3 shades that are free of fragrance, lake dyes, bismuth, oxychloride, carmine or parabens. Mineral makeup is great for your skin and makes your complexion looks effortless without looking ‘plastic’ or ‘fake’ the way regular foundation could make you look.

Hi there! I’m Jen and the newest blogger to the group. I live in St. Louis MO and from the Midwest. I have lived other places such as San Antonio, NYC, and Norfolk CT. But seem to keep coming back to the Midwest. I graduated from Webster University with a BA in Communications and have been working at Luxco Spirited Brands for the past 7 years. The main brands we market are Pearl Vodka, St. Brendan’s Irish Cream, and El Mayor Tequila. It’s quite fun here at Luxco! On the side I am building my own freelance business with all Social Media/Marketing/PR/and Event Coordinating for nonprofit and small business owners. 
I live in the Central West End it’s near so many great places I love! Forest Park, Pizza Pi, North West Coffee, Starbucks, and boutiques. I am the mother of two beautiful Chihuahua’s I rescued from a puppy mill Renny and Lola. They love long walks, french-fries and pizza.
When I am not slaving away I love spending my time with the love of my life Brett and of course all my friends and family. My fave past times are juicing, yoga, bikram, traveling, movies, dog park, hanging at coffee joints, taking walks, and reading. 

 I am excited to start this journey of blogging! XOXO
