Me sporting some Poppy King for J.Crew on date night....

HD Millionaire Tan Extender | Trader Joe's Coconut Body Butter | Big Sexy Hair Dry Shampoo 

Moisturizer, SPF, lightweight foundation: Bobbie Brown BB Cream SPF 35.  With one application I can apply concealer, moisturizer and SPF.  I love the versatility of being able to look fresh faced with a concealer and mascara but also have a flawless looking complexion even when I work out.  I usually go for a long run wearing BB Cream which prevents sunburn and doesn't clog my pores.
Eye Liner: Too Faced Perfect Eyes Eyeliner: This is the first eyeliner that I have worn for 26.2 rainy miles during a marathon and it stayed in place!
Lipstick: Poppy King for J.Crew: Definitely my favorite lipstick of the moment  for a few reasons: the color is great, it can be worn as a lighter more sheer tone or reapplied a to add depth.

Fake Tan: Millionaire tan extender. I suppose the single most important fact about this product is that it doesn't smell like traditional self tanners or leave fake tanner stains on clothing. It actually smells quite nice and leaves a nice shimmer along with a nice golden tan.

Multi-use product: Trader Joe's Coconut Body Butter. I can not say enough about this product. I use it for shaving, as lotion and it's great to use as a makeup remover. And, my husband uses this as a hair pomade & post shave lotion!  Did I mention that it smells outstanding?  Well, it does.
Dry Shampoo: BIG SEXY Hair. I use dry shampoo every single day. On the days that I wash my hair I still use it because it tames the flyways.  It is especially great to use after a long sweaty run when you need to head to an appointment but don't have time to wash your hair.

my beautiful family

Hello there, Edgy Times Fans!  Holly King here. Thirty-something wife, mother to three children, marathoner, beauty and health lover.

I met Francine years ago at her Kirkland boutique and became a frequent customer. I loved her ability to create ensembles within minutes of asking what I was looking for.  I have to say though; her great sense of style is matched by her wonderful personality. Flash forward 8+ years...We are still good friends and mothers that love to meet over coffee to catch up on everything that encompasses a great conversation... Basically, Francine inspires me with her fashion sense and determination in business and in return I usually just make her laugh. 

When I was asked to guest blog I thought it might be nice to share some of my favorite products with you.  I love beauty products, fashion and all of the finery's of being a lady but also love to get sweaty and head out for an intense track workout.  Depending on the day, my style and beauty needs vary which explains my eclectic array of items you're seeing.  Being a Mom to three young kids leaves me little time to primp, therefore, I usually look for products that are easy to apply on-the-go but they also need to last all day with little maintenance.  

This is my first blog post.  I hope you like it!
