Summer Camp

Ohhh the summer.  Where to start...?
Here are some less than professional photos of our trip to the Pines.  It's a week long camp that the older girls went to mid-July.  They love it.  It's 5 hours away so it makes for a very long round-trip car ride taking them and picking them up.  It was really hot but somehow the kids don't seem to notice very much, even when they're spending most of their days outdoors.
We listened to some of  The Moth podcasts on the way there and back and that made the driving a lot more bearable.
Thank you Thomas.  :)

Best Lupus Discoid Rash Concealer

So I've had different forms of Lupus rashes since I was diagnosed about 15 years ago.  Right now I have various sizes of what's called a Discoid rash on my face.

I've tried a lot of different types of concealers and wanted to share one that I think is really good and the best I've found so far.  It's called tarte MARACUJA CREASELESS CONCEALER.  I can't imagine asking for more from a concealer but I guess there's always room for improvement like I bet after women stopped wearing corsets they thought that they couldn't ask for more from a non-corset type bra but I know they've gotten more comfortable over the years with stretchy softer fabric and stuff.  But yeah, the concealer works really well for under eye circles too.  It looks natural, stays all day if you don't touch it, really is creaseless and is reasonably priced.  The shade I get is Fair but it comes in many shades of skin colors.

I wanted to show you a before shot, then an after concealer and powder shot, then an after concealer, powder and blush shot and last one of the actual product.

If you are prone to rashes or dark under-eye circles then maybe think about giving this a try.  If you order it from here you can return it with the free return shipping form they provide if you are not satisfied with one of their products for any reason. Sometimes I use a concealer brush and sometimes I just use my finger.  But, this is a good concealer brush if you don't know what I'm talking about.
