Vocation: Optician hoping to go back to get my masters soon 🙂

What is in your purse? My purse has so many things in it. I have a vera bradley backpack purse and it holds quite a bit: wallet, migrain med, excedrine migraine, nail file and about 6 different types of lip balms (I have a problem).

Guilty Pleasure: I have a few guilty pleasures. My first and foremost is lip balms in which I own so many that my friends tease me. And my second is shoes… I have about 50 pairs or so and I cleaned out my closet and threw about 12 pairs away… I own enough body sprays and lotions to keep an entire third world country smelling lovely.

Skin color, type and any special skin concerns:
I have fair to medium skin with olive and yellow undertones. I have combination skin that is prone to break outs especially during my monthly. My biggest skin issues are that I have a condition called melasma which causes darkening of the skin – it drives me absolutely insane! I am also always on the look out for something to help with signs of aging because I’m getting to the age that i have to worry about it.

Beauty inspiration: Sophia Loren… she is a beautiful and natural looking woman. I love the look of natural beauty, natural grace, and natural sincerity – it looks good on everyone.

Top 3 skincare products:

Olive oil – it is the most versatile item in my arsenal. It can be used on your hair, skin, nails and internally.
DDF Brightening Cleanser – it just makes me feel clean and i feel like I’m doing something good for my skin.
Sunscreen – it’s an absolute must for me now – with the melasma I have to use an spf of 70 which just kills me because I love to sit and read a book in the sun so if I’m not very careful about the sunscreen I will get even darker skin patches.

Top 3 tools of the trade:
Shu Uemura eyelash curler – I can say nothing bad about this curler–it rocks!
Darcy’s botanicals Peach Kernel hydrating milk – it just smells delicious and makes my hair feel so luxurious and did I mention it smells fabulous 😉
My third tool of the trade – drink plenty of water. I think it helps me to maintain a nice healthy complexion (at least I hope it does).

Best beauty secret / tip: Beauty is only skin deep. You can be the most beautiful person on the outside but be very ugly on the inside – and I wouldn’t want to be you!

Three current beauty products you’d like to buy:
I’d love to try any product from 100percentpure – I love the way the makeup looks, the significance behind it and the way the owner stands up for animal rights.
Bath bombs from lush – they look sinful and I’d love to try them.
MOR Marshmallow Lip balm – I saw this on and it sounded perfect for a lip balm junkie like myself.

Thanks for sharing Connie! And don’t worry, you really don’t have a lip balm problem. Not yet! Up to 30 lip balms is a very acceptable number!
What’s the product you ladies keep buying no matter how many you have?
