Marc Jacobs, we could have been fabulous together..........
This is a blush but I wanted it as eye shadow because this is my color.
Unfortunately, it did not work & since it was $30, it had to go back.
Even using primer, there was no color payoff - I could not get anywhere near this beautiful deep lavender.
This is a good color for green eyes & I have bought an entire palette just for one special color!
So, the search continues...

Here are some inexpensive things I found this weekend:
The Physicians Formula Lip Gloss is a lovely berry color - not too bright & no flavor.
The Lumene BB cream has SPF 20 & Arctic cloudberry & Vit C to brighten the skin - I got the Light and will try it this week.
Hope you are having lovely fall weather.

Since my son & my money go to Duke, I love to shop around the area and found some nice goodies, at places like Marshalls & TJ Maxx:
These are moisturizing shower gel & hand wash - the rose & peony smells heavenly.
I found this kit from elf with diff eye shadows & eyeliner - for $4.99!!  I could not resist the pretty floral blush brush.  The Aveeno Hair Spray smells nice & did not leave a hard, crunchy feel to my hair.

I enjoy body powder and found these 2 which smell  soft & divine:  I also leave them open in the linen closet for a pleasant scent when I walk in.

 I had such fun, I am going back soon!  Of course having lunch at the Cheesecake Factory (along with the delicious chocolate mousse cheesecake) only added to the wonderful day!

I am participating in Visible Monday at, so please come visit all of us!

 It's October........
Ghosts & Goblins don't scare me - I survived breast cancer!

While shopping at an outlet, I found Bobbi Brown Blush for about $18 - they had a lovely pink called Nude Pink that I picked up - I could easily use it for eye shadow-it had a nice color payoff.  I truly love this color!

I tried the Estee Lauder fragrance Modern Muse today and did not care for it.  At first spritz, it was harsh - but an hour later it did become softer.  I need a lot more floral notes.

I collect dishes & this site:  highlights some of the most beautiful pieces.   Here are some of mine:

I went thru a blue/colonial look and now I am into more of a romantic/pink look:  I love dessert plates & love this serving platter:
