My Favorite Things: Part 2

Paciugo Gelato (pronounced Pah-choo-go) is a gelateria artigianale, producing small batches of gelato containing no cream and no added preservatives. Paciugo Gelato is made daily according to recipes created in Turin, Italy and by utilizing the latest Italian technology without compromising the traditional nature of the product.

Only the finest ingredients are used to produce Paciugo Gelato, including fresh fruit, fresh pasteurized homogenized milk and the highest quality imported chocolate and nuts. Paciugo Gelato is produced daily in a variety of flavors chosen from over 200 recipes that will tantalize your tongue and turn you on to this Italian classic.

With 70% less fat than traditional ice cream and served in micro-bowls your figure will thank you as well. Started in Dallas in 2000 their 20 stores can now be found through the country and their 1st international store located in Mexico City. You can visit them in store or they do delivery stations for parties or corporate events.

Bare Escentuals, also known as bareMinerals, is an amazing makeup system that I have fallen in love with.

Bare Escentuals uses only the finest ingredients in their products. Made with crushed minerals from the earth, 100% pure bareMinerals:

  • is free of preservatives, talc, oil, fragrance and other potential skin irritants
  • is free of fillers and binders
  • is weightless
  • provides adjustable coverage—from light to full
  • will improve the condition of the skin over time
True to their slogan, "makeup so pure you can sleep in it", I sleep in it every night and rarely have a breakout. All ages and skin types can benefit from bareMinerals—especially those concerned with skin sensitivities, allergies, scars, blemishes, rosacea, wrinkles and pigmentation. (of which I have super sensitive skin, allergies and mild rosacea) The foundation provides impeccable coverage for every skin type and skin tone, and also protects with a natural SPF 15 broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation carries the Skin Cancer Foundation Seal of Recommendation.

The dual shades of foundation powder provide the best coverage for a changing skin color throughout the seasons from summer to winter, you never have adjust you foundation for a tan. Simple and light it provides full coverage without that yucky heavy feeling.

Starter kits can be purchased at a variety of b&m stores such as Sephora or online through their website.
