' Baby Beach ' Dana Point CA

We went here today. This is not my pic, but this is pretty accurate. This is a great beach for kids. What you can't see behind the camera is the nice park / grassy area. There are nice bathrooms and showers ( just regular beach showers ) and picnic areas. Weekends are INSANE here. This is basically Dana Point Harbor and its a big launching area for paddleboards and all the kayak / boating clubs. Parking is free too. Can't beat that. The buoys you see on the left are basically marking off the area where the kids go in the water. Its very shallow, the sand is clean, there is a lifeguard on duty on the weekends. My youngest daughter is 2.5 yrs old and loves it here. There are TONS of kids to play with, its close to our house and its nice. Today was gorgeous .

Seems like MUA is all a-buzz about the Tarte Amazonian clay blushes. They are nice, I checked them out in Sephora. But if you really want one, take a look at this. You get a nice 'clay' powder, gel e/l, a cream e/s and mascara. I think at $39 the price is right. I am most intrigued by the blush and the powder. I have my VIB discount and I'm considering this. I need more make up like I need a hole in the head.. but thats not the point :D

The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas

A lil lapse in posting. I was in Vegas the last few days.. staying at the Cosmopolitan, which I highly recommend EXCEPT for one thing, and its just about a deal breaker.

CRAPPY water pressure. I am a semi hair freak, and if I can't get water pressure strong enough to get shampoo / conditioner out of my hair, then I can't wash my hair. I already only wash 2x a week, but IF I had gone to the pool or something, we would have had a serious issue. It was really realllllly really weak. I prefer a water stream that feels like your skin is peeling off, but if the spray is so light you literally can't feel it hit your skin, something is really wrong.

Picture above is the Chandelier Bar which looks a LOT better in pictures. Just sayin'.
