People always ring my doorbell when I don't have on any pants.

One of my most favorite things to do is go see a matinee by myself. That's my favorite type of "me" time.

In my first Musings of a Muse post in January, I wrote about how I couldn't get to the gym three days a week. Now I go every day. Wow, how the mighty have risen.

Ever ordered something off the menu and then had the waiter come back and tell you that they're out of it? Happens to me practically every other time I go out to eat.

Love when I spend 7 minutes in T.J. Maxx and come out with a Cynthia Rowley cotton tee for $12.

Charcuterie is just the adult version of Lunchables.

Why is it that every time I go to Facebook I see videos upon videos? Facebook has officially become YouTube.

I don't know why I can't just turn my whole house into an office-closet. Every girl needs one.

As most of you know, I'm not the #1 makeup maven on the block. But that doesn't mean that I don't enjoy wearing makeup that makes my skin look and feel better. Hence my interest in tarte cosmetic's Amazonian Clay collection. The collection features cosmetics infused with clay taken straight from the Amazon River.

The Amazon River collects nutritious fruit and plant matter during its 4,000 mile journey. This clay is collected at the river basin and then harvested in an eco-friendly and sustainable process. The clay is then baked in the sun so the fruit and plant nutrients are preserved. Finally, the clay is shaved into a fine powder before making its way into makeup products like sunscreen, bronzer, tinted moisturizer and waterproof concealer, among many others.

My favorite products from tarte's Amazonian Clay collection are the 12-hour full coverage foundation with broad spectrum SPF 15 sunscreen, the 12-hour waterproof concealer, and the double detox exfoliating facial mask.
The 12-hour full coverage foundation is long lasting. Once we get back into autumn, you'll truly appreciate the full coverage, especially since it feels light and provides a natural look. You can blend and build on the satin-matte finish. The Amazonian Clay reduces dryness and removes oils from the skin's surface.

Concealer is something that a lot of girls swear by--and I can see why with a cosmetic like this 12-hour waterproof concealer by tarte. It's that final step that hides discoloration and skin impurities. For me, that means bye bye breakouts and blemishes. Apply it with your fingers if you wish and have it last all day long.

Last, but certainly not least, is the double detox exfoliating facial mask in the Amazonian Clay collection. This product is more about skincare than makeup, but we all know that a great look starts with a great foundation. The facial mask resurfaces and purifies skin in as little as five weeks. Perfect for even the most sensitive skin types! This, of course, is great for my eczema skin, and everyone loves a good detox every now and then.

So kick it up a notch and start taking care of your skin with these products by tarte cosmetics. Begin with a facial mask that purifies your skin, then add in a full coverage foundation that includes SPF 15 sunscreen--your face will thank you for it as you age. And take a page from Beyonce and keep it flawless with all-day waterproof concealer.

This past weekend I did a little karaoke, which involved paying money to sit in a small room for hours and pretend to know the words to a variety of hits from the '80, '90s and today. It was pretty funny. My two favorite songs to sing at karaoke: Ghetto Superstar and Listen. I also ventured downtown to attend the Italian Family Festa for some Italian eats, gelato and wine tasting. Oh, I think there was grape stomping and bocce ball too.

Finally got to take these new baubles and gel manicure out for a spin. Do you like? And my new Belmont sunglasses from Foster Grant are the perfect pairing alongside this cute Kendra Scott necklace from my August POPSUGAR Must Have box. I've received a couple subscription boxes in the past, but the one for this month has been my absolute favorite. I've already used everything in it, including these yummy cookies!

Right after the hubs took these photos, I took out my Galaxy S3 so we could get an image for Instagram. Two seconds later he made me drop it, and the front screen pretty much shattered. But fortunately, I had just bought the Galaxy S5 two days prior and had it sitting at home until the armor case arrived. Oh, good fortune.
