I have noticed bloggers are sharing some of their favorite pieces for spring & summer and they are things I like also.  Lilac seems to be popular and python which is one of my favorite handbags = my Gucci Python bag - ok, I like it soooo much I don't use it.  How crazy is that??!!!
Other summer bags:

I don't think python will ever go out of style -  I just adore this purse.
What are some of your favorite summer bags?

My only child (who is bringing a car load of people to Easter lunch) wanted to know if I was making tea ~ and by this, we mean only sweet tea.  I was almost at a loss for words - as if this child ever sat down at my table without a fresh pitcher of tea.  Apparently, he was subtly asking me to teach his wife.
Yes we all have our own way but it is not rocket science.
Now I use family size tea bags for a crowd and I don't care whether it is Lipton or Luzianne (whatever is on sale).  I boil my water in a 4qt Revere wear stainless steel pot and have already added a cup of sugar (and a pinch!).  Remove from the heat and add tea bags - now begin watching the time for 12-15 mins.  Remove the bags and have a cup of hot tea ~ then enjoy it over ice thru lunch.  I can't have caffeine during the rest of the day because I am an insomniac and can't sleep. But up until 11:00am I am full-on tea drinker!
Tell us your recipe.

I just wanted to pop in and say hello.  I have a retina problem and of course the specialist is not available for 2 weeks.  I am working on a new post and it is almost finished and I will get it out very soon.
I hope everyone is well and having nice weather.  My best wishes to everyone and we will talk soon.

The lovely and stylish Nicole from:
https://highlatitudestyle.com
asked how some of us prep our skin for spring & summer.  It does take some work because I was not careful with my skin as a teenager.  Now at 65 it shows!!!  She particularly wanted to know how we address issues with our legs but I use the same products and exfoliation for all over my body.
Below are some of my favorite products:
Josie Maran Argan Oil Body Butter
L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Spray Salon Airbrush
Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Exfoliater

This spray makes it easy to get behind the arms & legs and has no scent.

I tried Sun Drops - self tanner and anti-aging serum but it did not work for me.
 I added a couple of drops to my moisturizer and it was just too 'orangey' for my personal taste.
This was over $20 so it had to go back.  Tell us what is your favorite self-tanner.  I will try anything once!

I recently got an email that Walmart is going to carry premium brands of make-up including Clinique, Bare Minerals and Lancome.  I suspect some of these will be online only but that's ok if the price is right.

I hope your Easter is a nice one and everyone has good weather.

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess is one of my favorite summer scents.
So when I saw the Exfoliating Body Cleanser I knew it had to come home with me (oh, ok, I bought 2!!)
The scent is exactly like the perfume so you have fragrance every time you shower.  I just may have to go back for more!!!

Ulta had Kenra products on sale and these are some I keep around all the time.
Someone mentioned to me that Ulta will have one of their 20% off everything sales in April ~ so in preparation I have been going thru some of my favorite things to re-order.
I really like No7 products but I am not as consistent as I should be.  There is good science behind the products and my sensitive skin likes these items.
So what are you going to load up on?


http://www.thisautoimmunelife.com very kindly featured by front door wreath.  Their weekly blog is fun and has many creative ideas - do stop by!!

This precious angel starts high school this fall.
I cannot believe time has gone by so quickly - I think I will just hide him in the closet and keep him for myself!  He is everything I wanted in a grandchild and I love him more than my next breath.

** Be sure to hop over to Nicole's blog and see some more of us beauty bloggers (I was featured!).
She is very stylish and super nice!

Estee Lauder was having an event and with this wonderful purchase I received the lovlies below.  This cream is heavenly and absorbs quickly - I am sure to use this before going out since it has SPF.
And then I got this free!  The highlighter Heatwave
I need another highlighter like I need another hole in my head (and I've had 4 brain surgeries!) but this is too beautiful to resist.
These samples just make me love the products more - EL knows my weakness!  I keep these small samples for traveling.
I put these creams on morning and night, sometimes adding argan oil afterwards ~ especially with the awful cold we have had in the South.

I have been seeing this type of shoe everywhere ~ which is great because I love them!
Mules with embroidery seem to be a lovely trend this year.  I keep these shoes for Christmas but I definitely need to add some more.


The Grands were here this weekend and finally got to see snow - and of course GD had to bring me the daffodils she found (I had forgotten about them!).
 Then it was time to come in and get hot chocolate - they were soaked!  They both will need new snow boots for next winter.

 I am not quite done with the spring wreath-it needs a new bow.

I was fiddling on the internet and came across a post whereby someone was befuddled over SEOs, the elements of traffic, back links, significant data, click funnels(???) & platforms.
Oh my stars!!!  I do not know what half this stuff is.  My content is inspired by what is happening in my life and what I think will be of interest to others.  My degree is in English not engineering!

 Grandkids Spoiled?  YES!

Let me go ahead and unload!  Blogs with the embedded videos that blare at you with NO way to stop is just awful. Honestly, those are automatic migraine triggers - please have mercy on us migraineurs!
Are you really making enough to justify annoying your readers? Something to consider......

Ok, now on to the fun stuff!  Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter, 8 Oz &13 oz in Self Tanning & Unscented.
This is a staple in my house.  While fiddling around on the internet I was surprised to find this product more expensive at wall-world than on qvc.  I only buy these products when there is a good discount or free shipping.  I do not want to run out (in case of zombie apocalypse!) so I stock pile (hoard is a harsh word!).
I was just surprised to find a higher price on a site that is known to be discounted.

These were included with this
 I was not happy with the big glob missing from the body butter but QVC made an adjustment so it has ended well.  This coral color is not so intense as it appears and is very creamy - it's not for me but someone will want it.  The argan sugar scrub is nice and this is unscented - it really does make more sense to use sugar, as salt scrubs can absorb moisture.

Let me introduce you to these bloggers who kindly featured my snack mix from last week.
https://ducksnarow.com/2019/02/wonderful-wednesday-blog-hop-317.html
Their site is a lot of fun and always have interesting articles. Wednesday is their blog hop day - hop on over and share your goodies.  Thank you ladies !!!

The headache monster is on the way and I have not done one load of laundry today.  The weather has been wonky and that does not help - we go from cold & snowy to 60 degrees!
Be well loves.
