Summer Wind- Frank Sinatra

The summer wind came blowin' in
From across the sea
It lingered there to touch your hair
And walk with me

All summer long
we sang a song
And then we strolled that golden sand
Two sweethearts and the summer wind

Like painted kites, those days and nights
They went flying by
The world was new beneath the blue
Umbrella sky

Then softer than a piper man
One day, it called to you
I lost you I lost you to
The summer wind

The autumn wind
And the winter winds
They have come and gone
And still those days
Those lonely days
They go on and on
And guess who’s sigh`s
His lullabies through nights that never end
My fickled friend,
The summer wind
The summer wind warm summer wind
Mmm the summer wind

I absolutely adore this song, its perfect for Valentines Day. The picture is of Capemay, NJ, just up the coast from Brigantine Beach, where we go every summer. I guess I'm old-fashioned, but I think it would so romantic to spend Valentines in a cotton dress sailing along the shore, walking the boards, and slow-dancing to Frank Sinatra. All I need is a sweetheart and I've got my eye on someone ;)

Reviews: Lip Smacking Good

I have an addiction to buying makeup, you can get it cheap and it makes you look great. Now I'm a very frugal gal so when I shell out $7 at Walmart for my next lip care fix it better be good stuff. I don't want any of you to waste your or your parent's hard earned money buying something that doesn't work so I'm reviewing some of my recent purchases for FREE!

Softlips: Basic Lip Balm

A friend recommended this and I am head over heels! My lips feel silky smooth every time I use it. The balm is lightweight and unnoticeable with a hint of yummy vanilla. Raspberry, cherry, and strawberry flavors are also available. Along with moisturizing, Softlips provides sun protection essential for healthy lips. Available at major retailers, I bought mine at Target for a couple of dollars.

Covergirl Outlast Double Lipshine: Color Please!

This color/gloss duo claims 10 hours of beauty, and I'm a 6' 2" supermodel. The gloss isn't unbearably sticky but definitely requires reapplication. The color (in my case #305 Sahara) is long lasting, mine stayed on through dinner last night, but make sure to moisturize before application so it goes on evenly. Over all I give it a thumbs-up. Its up to you to decide if you want to pay $8 for good looking color, don't expect much from the gloss.

Cinnamint Mentha Lip Shine: Fresh Flavor
I could eat this stuff. The ah-mazing cinnamon taste is due to the real cinnamon and peppermint oil in every tube. I recommend this for any girl with a beau that likes cinnamon ;) because sadly the cool minty feel and yummy taste is all CO Bigelow's lip gloss is good for. Without moisturizers or sun protection it lacks practicality but when did we start caring about that anyway? Find it at Bath and Body Works for $7.50 a pop. As the Kooks say-"Shine On" girls, shine on.

Hello Blogosphere, Can You Hear Me?

Blog: an online diary; a personal chronological log of thoughts published on a Web page; also called Weblog, Web log (according to Dictionary.com)

Blog: where you write witty stories hoping to impress random strangers surfing the web; something that you start on Tuesday night when you should be sleeping; an online diary that you quickly forget about, very hard to keep up with (according to yours truly)

I'll be honest, this is my 3rd blog. My first was an attempted fashion blog. I managed about 15 posts over the course of a year. My second died after the 1st post. My track record isn't looking so good... But I will persevere and carve myself a niche in the world wide web. I suppose I'll need a theme in order to do so but I don't want to restrict my blog to one subject so I venture forth, themeless, unlearned, and misguided. Onward!
