I am interested in this new edition from Two Faced: Contour Palette ($40.00) Too Faced Cocoa Contour Palette   
The Light Cocoa will be perfect for all over bronzing - the Medium Cocoa will be the contour color and the Dark Cocoa will be the fall back color for the eye crease.  The Pop of Light will highlight the brow bone.
 
This nasty weather has to stop - so far my son has been lucky and has not been on-call at the hospital but I really worry about him driving in awful weather and going out in the middle of the night. More yucky snow & sleet in a couple of days.
So, since I have to stay inside I should be productive - The 2015 Snowbound Toss Out is on!!!!!!!!


Why do I have so many eye liners???   I never use it!
I generally like Perricone prods but the smell of this is too much - I have gotten thru half of this but did not see any significant change ~ the hairspray was stiff and it's almost empty so out it goes. 
I stockpiled some of these prods because I really liked them but never got around to using them and now their time is up - oh well... I prefer to have something and not need it ~ rather than need it & not have it!
At least I got something accomplished besides binging on Sons of Anarchy!
  
This recipe is super simple & makes good use of the crock pot:

 Crockpot Chicken and Stuffing ~ It is so easy to make... only 4 ingredients and a crockpot! My family loves this dinner recipe! I love how easy it is to prepare.
The grandchildren will like this without the green beans on top.
  
Since I am enjoying Tarte products, I want to share with my followers.

Good Morning
Since we have had so much snow, I may as well shop!  I love the convenience of having what I want delivered to my door ~ here are some of my new favorites:
Ulta's Super Shiny Lip Gloss in Siren & Starlet~
 It really is a shiny lip gloss which I prefer because the lines on the lips are not so noticeable since the light reflects back - and many times these items are BOGO.
These particular colors are hardly one shade in difference so which ever color is in the bag I am carrying it will be fine.

To prevent dry lips, I have been using No7 Lift & Luminate night serum on eyes & lips and it is a good product!
From what I have read, this comp has done studies to prove their prods work & I have liked everything I have tried.
 
I recently bought this: John Frieda Luxurious Volume Hairspray All-Day-Hold. This is an ultra-fine spray with no detectable scent - this will be great as the humidity starts up around here in spring!
I generally like John Frieda products & use the purple shampoo every month.

Since we had snow again this weekend, it was the perfect time to make cookies:
I packaged up a bunch for Papaw to take to my beloved grands ~ since son requested more of my Starbucks Mocha coffee, off it goes to him.  I did not care for it but love my purchase of Crazy Cups Death by Chocolate:
Since my son gave me the Keurig I have spent a fortune on coffees & teas but what a way to go!  It has been a lot of fun!

I want to have a giveaway to show my appreciation to my followers - I always enjoy hearing from you & love sharing information on the latest prods we need in our life.
So, The Spring 2015 Giveaway starts right now!  Become a follower for a chance to win this Tarte Cheek Stain 'Exposed' (nude/pinkish rose shade), new/sealed in package.  Apparently these are a cult favorite and retail for $30 ~ and you could win one!

I have become a fan of Tarte products & Tarte Miracles from the Amazon 6-piece Collection came today;
 Beauty News: Today Only on QVC— tarte Miracles from the Amazon 6pc. Collection
Amazonian Clay Eye & Cheek Palette
Amazonian clay-infused shadows



  • Pink Beyond - matte soft pink
  • Taupe for the Best - shimmering steel taupe
  • Dreams Plum True - true matte plum
  • Out of This Pearl - pearly golden ivory
  • Thistle Be The Day - plush matte grey/beige
  • Paint the Brown - matte chocolate brown ~ 
  •           So glad to see matte shades!
     Full sized blush in Talented ~ soft peachy coral

     I really like the brushes but the blending side is not defined enough for me - I prefer a smaller brush with a more pointed end.
    LipSurgence Liquid Lip Shine in Exquisite is a great shiny lipgloss in a perfect, soft mauve/berry shade.
    ETA:
    How did I live without this cutie?
    I am going to buy one for every handbag!

    Is this not heart-breaking to see such a nice bag ruined??!!!!!
    Really, someone cut holes in the LV and they want us to pay for it????????????
    It is a world gone mad!

    I love these cut glass pitchers (I have 2) and made white wine sangria for lunch:

    Snow & ice be gone - it's delaying my package deliveries!
    Stay warm!

    I am currently trying this shampoo & I believe it is perfect for winter!
    Just a little product gives a moisturizing cleanse and I did not need conditioner - a nice shampoo that did not weigh my hair down & added a natural softness.
    It is also time for a spot of the purple shampoo to keep our light locks lovely!
    Remember: at least once a month, go purple!

    Also newly arrived is Nivea's new in-shower Body Lotion for very dry skin - absolutely superb for this weather!
    The Sally Hershberger Style Primer (pic below) was a nice product - a very light mousse & soft scent that dissipated quickly - my hair was shiny, with no stiffness.  But the product was not easy to find & the price was high just to be part of my on-going arsenal ~ I am all about variety!

    I have been a fan of  Maybelline Baby Lips for a while & I just bought the "Cherry Me"; I know it looks very dark red but it definitely goes on as a sheer little bit of color.  It is very moisturizing with just the right amount of color ~ perfect to keep in your bag because you don't need a mirror to apply.
    I have been trying some of  Mally Evercolor Shadow Sticks & lipgloss (High Shine Liquid Lipstick in Epic Pink).  The lip gloss was too gloopy for me but the Shadow Sticks were wonderful!  They just glided on without pulling and the color was just the right amount - really no blending needed - super fast!  This is Age Rebel Shadow Stick in Smoky Quartz:
    This is a super easy lunch - the Steamers vegs from Green Giant have been on sale for about $1 each lately - then I simply add soy sauce & shredded cheese:
    Have a great week!

    Apparently hair style primer is a "thing" now so we need to find some good ones, especially if you have fine straight hair - like me!
    The Sally Hershberger Style Primer has not arrived yet but I am excited to try it.  The Nick Chavez Amazon Hair worked great - it is a spray on gel with no heavy stiffness or strong scent & I could not detect any build up - I need to start looking for more of this!   I like B&B prods but I am definitely a 'spray' girl - I feel I have more control over the amount of product I use.
    Lucky magazine is showing adorable embellished sweatshirts and I would love to have one!  I am afraid with the spring & summers clothes coming in this may be something that will have to wait until fall but I am definitely on the hunt!  Such an easy way to dress up a casual look.  If you find a great one let me know.

    Some days I just want a simple swipe of face powder & fly out the door. This product will certainly do the trick - it gives a soft smidge of color with a bit of glow & it is not expensive - honestly, to just run to the grocery store does not warrant hauling out the Chanel!
    Wet n Wild Bronzer in "Reserve Your Cabana" is very light and has SPF 15 - this will be a good spring item that we all can afford!

    Even before my days as a caterer I collected anything that revolved around cooking; I especially love baking pans & always want the newest & most interesting sets:
    I think it is important to buy quality because I plan to pass my things on to the DIL & GD - along with the memories of the wonderful foods that were created to commemorate special days.

    My son gave me a Keurig for Christmas and I realize I am late to the game - I try to keep clutter off my counters but this little gem is too fun!  I usually use it 2-3 x a day!
    I am currently enjoying a tea called Winter Spice & it is delicious - and caffeine free!
    Thank you son - you're my favorite! (He's an only child!)

    I am excited to start purchasing the spring collections of some of my favorite cosmetics comps and as always, Chanel does not disappoint.  Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush - the Innocence color is very beautiful:


    The color pictured is Sonate - this would certainly be a great year 'round color!

    I have been trying different eye shadow brushes and honestly, the inexpensive e l f brushes are as good as anything - really, for $1 you just can't go wrong!
    I don't know where some of these came from but these are a variety of my back ups.
    The cotton ones are neat because the bottom is flat & the top is pointed = both are great helps in cleaning up make up around the eye area.

    I purchased this lighted make up mirror and it was too good!  Let me explain;  I am a daily migraineur and one of my triggers is light.  This mirror is very bright and instantly triggered head pain. It had to go back but if you need one this is a good purchase; not too large & good light intensity.
    Becoming organized is an ongoing exercise for me so I am always on the hunt for items that will help me in that effort. Apparently I now have a collection of 'helpers':
    This is going to work with some of my other organizing options:
    I love these decorated boxes & use them for a zillion things.
    Pink aviator sunglasses are a must for me this year:

    Someone sent me the following: " As women we do the errands of Angels."
    Don't you just love it!!  As a matter of fact, I have had women in my life that came just when I so needed them......it was miraculous.  This year, may I be one of those women.
