Ultra Repair Cream by First Aid Beauty is what I am slathering all over for my dry skin.  I have a place on  my leg with cut skin because I was itching so badly.  I have a prescription but it cannot be used everyday.  I am also using Neutrogena Sesame Oil when I get out of the shower - any other suggestions are appreciated.

  I love everyone of these eye shadow colors.  Tarte - Limited-Edition Buried Treasure Eyeshadow Palette - Rainforest of the Sea Collection



These fragrances are so lovely - Black Tulip is a favorite but I use it sparingly.

I have had the flu for a month and just now feel like sitting at the computer.  I have no appetite and I wish everyone would stop trying to force me to eat.  I have some medicine that increases the appetite but my poor stomach can hardly tolerate anything.
I hope you & yours are well and take all precautions to protect your health.

These are 2 products I try to use every day:
Strivectin gives a smooth surface to the skin which allows any make up to adhere and blend nicely.  Both liquid foundation or powder go on smoothly and give a finished look.

CeraVe is sunscreen with SPF50 - definitely use it on the face, neck and back of the hands.  It is oil-free and contains ceramides & niacinamide - I really need to add one of these to some of the cars.


I found this again!!  I am going to use this finally:

I prefer matte shadows and this gives a nice choice esp if you are taking it on a trip. Too Faced makes good eye products.

I am trying to organize my velour jackets. It is so easy to dress them up or down and they are comfortable to wear all day.  Chronic pain people have to be aware what touches the skin.
 I have to get these colors organized - it's making me crazy!


We are having 'wintry' mix this weekend so hopefully I will get something accomplished.
Do you have any goals you want to get done before spring?

I am not sure what this is going to be but my creative Grands will find a use for it!  Boxes never go to waste at my house.

I am a fan of Laura Geller products and recently bought this lip gloss:
 The color is Raspberry Roast and it appears darker (using a flash) - it is not dark when applied.
This is not sticky and stayed in place for hours - really like this color!

Several weeks ago I bought Buxom Mascara and it is wonderful.  The brush provided good separation of the lashes and the construction allowed you to get every lash.  It lasted all day without significant fallout or smearing.

I have taken the Christmas stuff off the village table and am getting it ready for spring.  I have found some summer trees and have ordered them.  GD likes to play with these and is very careful.

Girl friend needs a hair cut!!  I plan for this event to happen on Thurs - my new stylist has been wonderful.  After several years and other hair stylists I finally found one that gave me back my original style.  I am not one to change a lot - when I like something I stay with it.
Sorry, no make up - just getting over a virus and don't have the where-withall to fix up.
I hope everyone is well and resting after the holidays.

I have had all I can stand of Pantone's Color of the Year - Coral.
So I went in search of the Spring collection =  Flame Scarlet & Saffron.
  If you like a patriotic theme this will be your year and it seems
  likely that coastal-inspired colors will be hot for the next few years.
 
 Embracing Nature - Color Palette                                                        


 Color Play - Color Palette

 But my colors are the last two - Pantone seems to give us some shade of these colors every year and I appreciate it. These are colors I enjoy and I don't want my clothing or decor to be dated.

Are any of these going to be your favorites?

I have to bring this product to your attention because it works!  L'Oreal Revitalift 1.5% Hyaluronic Acid Serum is fragrance free and quickly plumps the skin so wrinkles are not so noticeable.  I have been using it on my neck and around the eyes before my moisturizer and I am very happy with it.  It is available at most drugstores and there are coupons to help you save money.  Definitely treat yourself!

With Christmas almost here, I am working on the menu (which I am not allowed to change, ever!)
My favorite side dish is my Cranberry Sauce with Mandarin Oranges & Pecans. Even my DIL has decided this is delicious.
I use whole cranberries (frankly the canned type is easier), cut up mandarin oranges, chopped pecans, 1TBS cinnamon, splash of vanilla, small sprinkling of cloves.  Mix together gently and refrigerate.
Have you tried this?  Feel free to share any recipes.

I hope you have a wonderful holiday and much love to all.

I just love this time of year - the grands had an early release day so they got extra time with me this weekend.  I made their favorite spaghetti and went  to the top of the mountain (in Cana, VA) to get apples.  I love McIntosh and Empires and they only had a couple dozen Empires left.  Their country store has penny candy so the Grands get a bag to fill up!!  We don't have a lot of color yet on the trees but it should be better in a couple of weeks.  What did you do this weekend?

While Ulta is having 20% off, I picked a few things - all necessary!!
This moisturizer is wonderful - it doesn't bother my sensitive skin and has SPF.

This is the cleanser I use every day.  It is very gentle with no fragrance.

 Triple Sec is a nice volumizer - after I dry my hair and mostly style it, I spray this in chunks underneath my style.  The fragrance is soft and is not overly stiff.  Another good use for 20% off!
Sparkling Soda is a fabulous shine/light hold product.  Now I need more hold than this so I use my hair spray product and then use this for mega shine.  I like a lot of shine (since I have no color to reflect light back) and this is fantastic.  I cannot be without this!  Have you tried any of these & what did you think?  Share your ideas.
 * All of these products were purchased by me.

How is fall shaping up for you?  Very busy or more low-key?

I got some new hair products I am excited to try.
 I really like AG hair products so I always pick up whatever is new to the line.      
Cloud is a volumizing mousse that is new to the line.
Sexy Hair is a volumizing gel foam that does not weigh hair down.
I am trying a new stylist this week so I might take this with me-wish me luck!

This is new to me and I love it! Its Vitality Lip Flush is moisturizing and gives just the slightest blush to the lips - I will definitely buy this again.
