With Memorial Day weekend in our rear view mirror a lot of us are ready for summer and weekends spent outdoors at the lake, beach and park. Do you have your summer sun protection ready to go? Even on overcast days the damage from the sun can be harmful. Make sure you are your family are protected from damaging rays with one of my favorite sunscreen lines, Supergoop. A great line for people with sensitive skin, check out my new favorite from their great collection of products.
If you are a year round blonde or like to highlight for summer you know caring for blonde hair can be tricky. I have tried a lot of purple shampoo’s and hands down the best I have used is Unite’s Blonda Shampoo. For those new to the land of blonde highlights, violet toned shampoos help keep your blonde color cool, shiny and gorgeous instead of the dreaded brassiness that is common with lightened hair. Celebs like Julianne Hough use it to brighten her blonde hair and look great on the red carpet.
I love sunless tanners I will try them all before I am done. But while I love having a golden glow there are a lot of sunless tanners that made me look more Snooki then just back from vacation sexy. When I was offered the chance to try Kona Tanning Companies Sunless tanner I couldn’t say yes fast enough. I mean these folks tan the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Models, hello!

I don’t know why it took me so long to try Benefit they’re real mascara, I love most everything they make. I received a little trial size from Sephora and let me tell you this is one eye popping mascara. The brush has lots of bristles that make full coverage a cinch. The formula makes my eyelashes look so long and it adds thickness without clumping.

About FitzyDesign: In September of 2012 in an effort to bring more spontaneity to my practice, I began a 365 project. For this project I decided to make something new every single day for a year, and post them online. You can follow my progress at robinfitzsimons365.tumblr.com. As you will see the pieces run quite a wide range of media including drawings, graphic design, textiles, video, and a whole bunch of leather craft. Many of my daily pieces have been various styles of leather jewellery. After numerous comments from friends and fans who follow the blog, I decided to start selling my jewellery, and Fitzy was born.
Here at Fitzy I make leather jewellery and other cool stuff. All of these products are handcrafted by me, Robin Fitzsimons, in my Toronto studio using high quality materials that I source from Canadian and American manufactures wherever possible. Fitzy pieces are designed to last, and the patina of time will only make them more beautiful
If you are looking for beautiful handmade jewelry you need to check out the Etsy Shop FitzDesign. I recently ordered the Blue & Green Leather Pyramid Earrings as a gift and they are even more gorgeous in person. They come in a cute package ready for gift giving or to spoil your self. The shipping was quick which is great for a last minute person like myself.
The earrings are nice and light and look amazing without pulling on your ears. They look so gorgeous on, my recipient loved them so much she has worn them every day since. Next I am choosing something for myself I am just torn decided what piece I need first. If you are looking for unique bridesmaids gifts or something that will stand out for someone special be sure to check out this shop.
Blue & Green Leather Pyramid Earrings
These earrings are handmade with 8-9 oz. vegetable tanned leather, and solid copper earring wires. Each pair is made by me from start to finish in my Toronto studio. I use blue & green dyes to paint each pair in a watercolour style finish. Each earring is then cut out by hand, and I finish the edges with saddle soap.
Each earring measures approximately 1 7/8″ high, 1 1/2″ wide, and 1/8″ thick.

This is a great product for quick root touch ups and saving a little of money extending the life of your highlights. It was really easy to use and with just a few strokes of the brush you can see it really lightened my roots. The product covers really well so it doesn’t take too much to really cover your roots. It does add a step to your routine but since it wouldn’t be something I need everyday I think its a great idea.
