In this edition (be prepared for a run-on, yet grammatically-correct sentence), a great savings on high-end skincare, a beloved picture of my grandma and me, a preview image of my latest foundation obsession, a makeup and hair look I've been resorting to since the weather has become quite warm, a fairly random picture of my pup Jethro, a Beauty Professor honor and something to do this weekend if you are a Southern California resident (or fortuitously happen to be in the area on Sunday).

First, in honor of Melanoma Awareness Month, Le Metier de Beaute is offering $75 off of their highly-regarded Replenishing Daily Solution SPF 30 through 5/31!
Read on for the details...
May is Melanoma Awareness Month, protect yourself.
With summer and sun (lots of sun) around the corner, LMdB has decided to join the fight in spreading awareness:
• Every eight minutes, someone in the United States will be given a melanoma diagnosis and every hour someone will die from the disease.
• Melanoma primarily affects individuals in the prime years of life
• One-in-50 Americans has a lifetime risk of developing melanoma
SPF Protection is the key to prevention. Approximately 65 percent of melanomas – the most deadly form of skin cancer and one of the fastest growing cancers in the United States – are attributed to ultraviolet (UV) exposure. Just this month, our Replenishing Daily Solution SPF 30 is available at an exclusive price. With the code GLOSSYBOX, receive a $75 credit towards purchase at http://www.lemetierdebeaute.com/products/glossybox-lmdb?dev=1.
• Broad-spectrum SPF30 protects the skin from damaging UVA/UVB rays.
• Highly emollient cream designed to condition and hydrate while it nourishes and detoxifies—the formula normalizes the skin's moisture content to provide unparalleled suppleness
• Key Ingredients: Vitamin E, Aloe, Sodium PCA and Sodium Hyaluronate, Asiatica and Echinacea, Squalane, Shea Butter, Avocado, Hazelnut and Jojoba, Cucumber Oil

Warm weather hair and makeup uniform...
|Above: It is getting rather warm in Southern California...summertime is in the air and humidity is at an all-time high. Once my hair is fastened into some form of a bun, the makeup I've been reaching for includes: Kanebo Sensai Cellular Performance Cream Foundation, Guerlain Four Seasons Terracotta Bronzer in Nude 00, Le Metier de Beaute Cream Fresh Tint in Mystique, a long-wear eyeshadow (lately from Bobbi Brown, By Terry or Giorgio Armani) and a peachy pink lip (here, a hybrid of Top Shop Whimsical and Burberry Glow in Fondant Pink).|
Beauty Professor honor...

On Sunday 6/2, my brother (whose work I've featured in blog posts HERE and HERE) will have a booth at the Patchwork Show in Long Beach, CA. Admission is free and the event, which boasts a bevy of artisan wares and food trucks bearing gourmet edibles, runs from 11 AM-5 PM. If you are a Southern California local, I beseech you to swing on by...I will be helping him all day and it would be wonderful to see you!

Bottom Line: I hope you enjoyed this cornucopia of thoughts, carefully curated for this single post! What are the potpourri details of YOUR life right now? New makeup? Interesting plans? Moments to celebrate?
