Unexpected Snow

Daffodils

Every year it only takes a few sunny days in mid forties to encourage the daffodils, hyacinths and other spring bulbs to sprout and show off their blooms unexpectedly. Since we all expect this unusual change in temperature in late winter, to save the blooms from the freeze we have to cover them with fabric and towels. This morning we all woke up to a beautiful steady snow shower that covered our spring blooms and reminded us that winter is still here and spring has to wait it’s turn.

2020 Spring Eye Makeup Trends

At first sight you murmur to yourself, what are they thinking? But as we watch the runway fashions with colors, textures, and fabrics that are fresh and creative we realize we are looking at fashion for Spring 2020.

Eyes with glitter and neon colors is fresh and so perfect for the times. White eye liner, or liners used to create the floating clouds are fresh and creative.

This Spring we will be brave and willing to try new colors and other creative ways to make our eyes look beautiful.

For 2020 Spring, designers had their models walk down the runways with neon eye shadows, and sparkly rhinestones around their eyes.

Anna Sui, Brandon Maxwell, Fendi, Helmut Lang, and Pamella Roland all introduced their spring fashion with fresh new line of eye makeup.

Spring is all about mixing intense shades, bright neons, glossy textures, and lots of sparkle.

At Anna Sui’s runway, models had one or two stars on their face with floating liner in shape of clouds around their eyelids.

A One of a Kind Farmers Market

With unique ingredients and organic recipes, the Santa Fe farmers market is one of the most famous markets in the Southwest.

We start by strolling through the beautiful market’s pastry and bread vendors, enjoying the natural colors of hand died yarns. The fragrance of lavender hand made soaps and moisturizers is very present.

Take a large shopping bag with you because you won’t go home empty handed.
