What are your opinions about g+?  Do you use it & find it helpful or no big deal.
I could not do fb because I would never allow my pictures to be used without my permission.  A college friend invited me to join her on g+ & I just don't know enough about its purpose = how different is g+ from fb?  Is there more protection for the blog content?
I also have not joined bloglovin as I did not see the benefits.
Thanks for any opinions.

Since more x-rays are in order, I just don't bother with make up - just clean! Since I should not be bending over, blow drying is a pain - so this is just some volumizer & the flat iron:
 I swear I've had enough x-rays for 3 people in a lifetime - seriously, I believe I could work the machine!  I asked my Dr why my face gets so flushed & he told me pain can cause the blood pressure to go up which will cause flushing.  He told me he could just look at my face & see that I am in pain - he swears I don't tell him how bad the pain is -
there might be some truth to that but I hate to be whiny.  Ok, maybe migraines & a broken back are justified but honestly, I go to the Dr often enough, I know his birthday!
At least my shorter haircut came at a good time.

My friend found this adorable box which will be perfect for eye shadows:

I absolutely love these colors - I just now realized how they compliment each other!
How do you handle organizing small items?  For me, organization is a work in progress!

Much love to all!!!

There is a running joke that if you want to see me, you have to go to Chili's - only it's true - I just don't go to other restaurants - I absolutely love their salsa & margaritas!!
But I have cracked a rib & should be resting so my friend brought Chili's to me!!
Salsa & pain meds - the ultimate combination!!!
But this has reminded me that people can be kind because lately, I have not seen much of it.  A friend's wallet was stolen - I had things stolen.  Honestly, you don't have to steal-just ask for it & I will give what I have.

But at some point I was good because I was rewarded with these 2:
This was my deal with God - if he would let me survive breast cancer to see these 2, I would have the mutilating surgery  - it was a good deal because 10 yrs later I am enjoying their fun moments - grandchildren are wonderful!
Some of the best days of summer -  they love coming up here - as long as I don't run out of popsicles!

(I think the dino was afraid of the girl - very smart dino because that is a fearless 4 year old !!!!!!!!!)

The heat often causes my face to flush so I have looked at lotions that should help & this one is popular with people that have rocasea - Rosaliac AR Intense by La Roche-Posay:
There is a pump top so too much doesn't come gushing out and it did not bother my sensitive skin.  I think it helped so I will buy this again.

Hope you have a good week!

Good Morning

I forgot I had this & have not used it yet!!!!  But I still love it!

Tarte - Be MATTEnificent Amazonian Colored Clay Matte

I enjoy the convenience of leave-in conditioners:
And of course if you leave them on long enough, they become deep conditioners!!

Hope your weekend was a good one!

I have some new followers this week & I am thrilled to have you here.  If you find yourself in the middle of  NC, let me know so we can have coffee & possibly hit Sephora!

I know one of the bloggers is going to focus on accessories and I have to admit it is one of my weaknesses. I love hammered silver cuffs:

And of course, a southwestern look is great for summer:

Now it is important to take care of silver because polishing it constantly is not fun!
I have a silver keeper armoire that works well if it is kept tightly closed - well worth the investment:
There are probably 4yr old fingerprints all over this mirror but it's never too soon to teach them to take care of their jewelry!

Diamonds are a girl's best friend & I love friends!!!!

My grandchildren love cupcakes so I found this site:
My little ones would love all these!

Don't miss a chance to be kind - it could be the best part of someone's day.

Knowing I had to go to the Dr for shots, I try to keep my outfit simple and hopefully keep me out of those paper "gowns"!  I was afraid this was too casual but I've known him for 20 yrs so I think it's ok:
No jewelry in case he sent me for more x-rays & no make up - I knew I would just come home & crash from being so tense - I hate needles!
I think I have finally broken free from nightgowns that accommodate the back brace so this is my OOTD!!! 

I recently found these Clairol Pro 4Plex products that I will try: Leave in conditioner:
And there is a Volume Mousse:
I hope to give them a try this week.

I don't understand the continued use of very super dark nail polish - Halloween is over and this vampire look has to go !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There are so many beautiful colors available & it will make your summer skin look gorgeous - please do it for me!!!!!!!!

Hope your weekend was wonderful!
