face off ::: bb cream vs foundation {Dior}

Perfect glowing skin is important. You shouldn’t have to layer on gobs of foundation and powder to have it either! It starts with taking care of your skin; besides hydration, good cleansers, exfoliation, SPF, and the occasional facial…

…your face make up/foundation can make or break your complexion.

I’ve used DiorSkin Nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup for the past 3 years. Once I found something that creates dewy unblemished skin that stays on and doesn’t get oily I was hooked. I also swear it makes your skin better over time.

With bits of inspiration from friends and family I dove in last year right before our vacation in Paris, not sure where it would take me.

My cooking skills have doubled, I’ve found a hobby I am truly passionate about, and I’ve learned a ton of fun techy bloggie stuff that I love love love. I’d say it’s a win, well for me. What about you guys- what do you think? Is anyone actually out there? 😉

So time to celebrate right? In true keely style there were be no fancy cake, cupcakes, or intricate desserts created to mark the date. There will however be a bottle of my favorite bubbly and dinner tonight to celebrate.


So  I realize you guys don’t know THAT much about me yet. Maybe a little but not a lot.
