App:
Genius Scan– I discovered this little app at work last week when I mentioned to a patron that he might want to scan a document and email it instead of faxing. Then patron then mentioned that he uses this app and so I tried it out and I love it. I do have a scanner at home, but this was super simple. All I had to do was take a photo of the document and then it coverts it to PDF which I can email to myself or anyone. I used the app on my iPhone 6s, but it also work for Android. I’d suggest using the app on a later model phone as it will need a decent camera to function. Did I mention? Its my favorite price, free!


Beauty:
I am currently loving L’oreal True Match Naturale Powder Mineral Foundation I purchased this item several months ago and then stuck it in my cabinet and forgot about it. Well a few weeks ago, after being fed up with a few other products, I whipped this out and promptly fell in love. I am a full coverage gal, and haven’t tried something as simple as a mineral powder foundation in several years. I used Bare Minerals in the past, but hadn’t in forever. Anyways, I think this product is better. Like with any other drugstore beauty product, I ditched the brush and use my Real Techniques buffing brush for application. I have been using this brush for liquid foundation as well and I love it. The powder goes on smooth and covers very well. The product is buildable and I usually place two coats on my more difficult areas such as my chin and under eyes. I think my favorite prat of this product is that is light and breathable. As someone who is familiar with full coverage foundations, I am also familiar with the weight of them. This powder is so nice and light I forget I am wearing it, which is awesome. The best part? It is only $14ish and available all over.


Misc:
After my recent transfer to a new library I started noticing my eyes were twitching occasionally.  I looked into it and it turns out this is often caused by too much screen time with the wrong lighting, something I totally am dealing with at this new library.  To combat this issue it was suggested I try computer glasses.  After looking into this and making sure it wasn’t just  scam, I ordered a pair off Amazon.  The ones I ordered are not the top of the line glasses, but a god pair to try out the idea for $10.  So far I do notice it helping, I am also trying to cut back a little on screen time when I can.

Food:
While at the Orlando Fringe Festival this year I purchased this amazing BBQ Sundae.  I had one last year and they are amazing.  I wish I knew the name of the food truck vendor, but just trust me, its great.  They layer your choice of BBQ meat with beans, slaw, and a pickle and top it with a roll. A great, portable, meal for $10.


Fashion:
I know I’ve already mentioned in on the blog, but I’ve been living in the linen dress from Old Navy. I don’t shop there often, but when I do stop in I often find something I like. Check for sales, I was able to snag it for half off!
