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.

It is time for hair products rotation - these are some good prods that I keep around:
Lip products that are good for the lips:
I really like the argan products by Josie Maran ~ the Chapstick total hydration was dry when applying so I had to add another product for additional moisture.  What are your favorites?
I have an order coming from Ulta so I will feature them next time.  Some of the items are new to me.


Working on the fall wreath - it should be up by this weekend.  Hopefully it looks like the one below:
I really love this mahogany door - it matched the brick so well.

My head pain has been terrible lately and I don't know why - the weather has been nice and nights are going down into the 50's - so wonderful to sleep with the doors & windows open.  I like 100% cotton night clothes but they are hard to find.  I just placed an order with Lands End so a few of those pieces will be pure cotton.
I will have more to feature next time.  Thank you wonderful readers!!!!!!!!!!!

KEEP CALM IT'S ONLY BRAIN SURGERY

I read a blogger post whereby the writer wears day-time tops as pajamas.  I can so relate to this because I do it also.  I have to have long sleeves year 'round but especially in winter and a zillion blankets!  I am starting to see a few leaves get pale yellow here on the mountain and that means my favorite season is close by.  Let the pumpkin spice madness begin!!!

Do you need long sleeves to be comfortable?

I found this set of  Euphoria perfume for 75% off which was too irresistible - it is a scent I really like.

Because I mentioned highlighters in my last post, I had to round up some of my highlighters - honestly, I don't collect them but some were a good value - I can hardly resist buy 1 - get 1 free!!!!!!!!!!
Do you have some favorites?

I promise to have more info next time - between GC birthdays, getting the fall wreath ready and migraines time has slipped by too quickly.  Thank you for spending time with me.

I have had this bareMinerals highlighter for a while but have not used it.  The colors from left to right are:  'Glow Brillant' and 'Matte May'.  They are very light so you have a chance to build on it.
I don't think I will buy another one - really how many highlighters does one need??!!!

I may round up a number of my highlighters to keep myself accountable=like I have enough forever!

Here are products I have been happy with and was not expensive. This was part of my haul during Ulta's 20% discount.
I like Estee Lauder - I can't help it!

Ulta's Gradual Self Tanning Glow Pads

My new hair stylist did a good job.  I would prefer more pieces but I can do that myself.  At least the length is back where I like it.
Happy Birthday August girls!!

I am leaving this post up for a few more days because the lovely Beverly is showcasing my blog.
Be sure to check out her blog at : https://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/
It is always showing the most beautiful things and you cannot find a nicer person.

I will have a new post in a few days!! Have a great weekend!

Ulta needs to stop with the 20% off - this is my second order!!

I could not resist the Pacifica Cherry Bomb  Cherry Cheek Powders.  They are not hard colors and seem perfect for fair skin color.  I used a tissue so you could see the colors better.  This color combination is great for blush & bronzers.
Of course the colors are lighter than they appear on a white background.
From top to bottom
Cherry Spirits
Pink Moon
Fire Lit
Queens of Noise.

I have sensitive skin so I am careful what I put on my face.  Neutrogena make up remover cleansing towelettes are excellent for removing the day's make up.  Now I would follow up with an additional cleansing so I know my face is completely clean - then I add whatever I am using for anti-aging ~ retin A, Origins Night minims or Estee Lauder's Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Synchronized Complex II

(These are my travel sizes)

What is your nightly regime?

I was just scrolling thru Ulta.com and saw that they already have pumpkin spice products!
I guess it is an attempt to show us we will live thru the heat of summer!  I saw candles and body mists - it's never too early to enjoy anything pumpkin!

It is time to clean the silver jewelry - I only do small batches but here we go:
I always have some of these pieces laying about for quick use to finish off an outfit.  I should do better and keep them in the armoire to stave off tarnish - it really helps.

Oh my stars I love Josie Maran Argan Creamy Concealer Crayon.  I got it in Fair and it is a perfect match.  It is so easy to blend without pulling the skin.  I have never found a concealer that works so perfectly!  What is your favorite?

My only child came up for his birthday and wanted to cook out so I made hamburgers & hot dogs and his favorite baked beans.  For DIL who will have a birthday the next week, I made tuna & macaroni salad.  We both prefer dill pickle relish - I just can't stand the sweet kind.
 This is the island in the kitchen in full use!!!

He knows I am going to let him take the banana bread home!


 Classic Tuna & Macaroni Salad - very Southern!

  • 2 cans tuna fish in water
  • 1/2 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup finely diced celery (about 2 stalks)
  • 1/2 cup dill pickle relish
  • 1 to 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, to taste
