A Late Afternoon in Mt. Baldy #wanderlust #travel #california #mtbaldy

I’m super excited to share the beauty products that I have really been loving the past couple of months.  I know I’m a little late with my favorites.  Like, 2 months late.  But at least you know the love is real, and  better late than never, right?  

As you can see, it is a mix of both skincare and color cosmetics that someone would have to pry from my grubby little hands to take them from me.  Let’s start with cheeks!
