SPT: Sun

For the month of July, Lelly has challenged us to chronicle each week one of the five elements of summer. This week's element is sun.

Even though I do admit to my own fair share of sun-worshipping beside the pool or beach, I did not venture forth into the actual sunshine for this SPT. Um, it's HOT out there.

Instead, these miniature suns captured my attention. These blooms have been coloring our garden for a few weeks now, towering up over the tomatoes, cucumbers, squash and watermelons. Every time I glance outside in our backyard, they share a bit of their happiness with me.

I also have a version of fake sun at my convenient disposal. Just a quick swishy-swash of my trusty make-up brush over this...

spreads a bit of a sun-kissed glow across my cheeks.

Thanks Too Faced. Sephora is a dangerous place. But it's air-conditioned.


Be sure to visit Lelly's blog to read other sunny SPTs.

  1. I need to get some of that.. I am so fair skinned. I can tell when I have a little tan, but no one else can tell. They just say they need sun glasses to look at my legs!
