The Lipstick League Question of the Week:
Do you ever leave the house without applying any makeup?
G's answer: If you were to ask me this when I was in my twenties, I would have told you, "Never!" But as I get older, I seem to care far less about wearing makeup when I leave the house. At this point, I often wear no makeup when I'm running errands on the weekends. But let me get real here--I don't LOVE how I look without makeup (thanks, sun spots, age spots and dark circles!). So I do tend to at LEAST put on some CC cream and blush if I have the time!

Guest Post of the Week, as chosen by Gouldylox Reviews - Julia Coney was one of the first "big bloggers" I ever got to meet and she's just as awesome today as she was then. I especially love her post about being beautiful in your own way and not ascribing to the Instragram mode of beauty. Please read it!
