Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation & the Morristown Green

Hello Beautycallers. Thanks for stopping by. I was planning on posting this last night, but due to our toilet overflowing at 1:00am, it just wasn't going to happen. But I'm here now to share my Sunday with you.

I was like a little kid opening the Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation box. And then there was feeling the amazing brush, all I can say is WOW. It should get an award for "best foundation brush." I was hesitant to buy it because I don't like the heavy feel of a full coverage foundation. I prefer sheer to light coverage. But after reading all the glowing reviews on QVC, recommendations from fellow tartlettes, I caved. And you would think it must be amazing if it's always sold out on QVC.

Per the description on QVC, the foundation balances and neutralizes your complexion, absorbing any oily areas, and helping to reduce any dry areas. By using the brush, you will achieve an airbrushed finish. A very important benefit, for me and many others, is that it has SPF 15. I have tried many foundations with SPF, but for one reason or another, I didn't care for them. I am extremely happy that my search is over.

Jason and I spent the afternoon at the Morristown Green in Morristown, NJ. Morristown is a town with character, history and charm.

Oh man! Toilet overflowing at 1 am? Sounds horrible! Hope you got it fixed and that it wasn't too much of a headache for you.

Let me tell you, it WAS a headache. Besides getting towels down to absorb the water, I then mopped the floor. I had no interest in having toilet water remnants on the bathroom floor. So to say it was a late night is an understatment.
