I think this new palette by Maybelline will be convenient to keep on hand-it includes matte & shimmer eye shadows:
 It was under $10 & would make a nice stocking stuffer for the holidays.

 This is a self tanner that has SPF & is used as a moisturizer - very convenient for use on a daily basis.  This will be nice to take you thru fall.
 I have been going thru my closet & finding things that I no longer wear - especially scarves. 
I love these colors but just never get around to wearing them.
The short cooling period we just had gave me the get up & go to start going thru the closet & eliminate some things.  It felt good!

Are you ready for a change in the weather?

I love all of you enough to nag - take osteoporosis seriously.  I have broken a bone somewhere for the past couple of years.  Please take this health threat seriously - I don't like milk but I should have been more conscious about my calcium intake when I was younger.  Take care of yourself because I want you around for a long time!

I recently realized I did not buy anything significant in clothing this summer.  Of course, healing from broken bones made shopping fairly impossible but there did not seem to be anything dynamic this season.  Here in the South summer means I am either hot or cold;  I have kept long sleeves going for the entire year, so far.  But hopefully we will have a cooling period this week & I am looking forward to the temporary change.

But at least with accessories, we can change the look of an outfit very quickly - here are some of my pieces that I use frequently:

I love the 2 tone San Marco bracelet and of course, I never get tired of sapphires!
An omega necklace can be used for casual wear or dressed up - I use the silver & gold almost every week so they are good investment pieces.

I don't feel great so I am off to rest - take care & I hope you have a nice week.

Apparently I am a hairspray collector - but I can explain!!!!!!!!!
I need soft & brush-able formulations & for the hot & humid days, I need major hold.
I will try anything once which would explain my current collection:
Do I have to confess there is another shelf  I didn't show..........

I was at Ulta's on Monday and I picked this up:
I have read good things about this brand & look forward to trying it.  The set includes a day & night formulation for wrinkles and unevenness.

Can you believe half the year is over ????!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have started some Christmas shopping and my little grandson will be starting school in a few weeks - time is going by too fast!

All my best to you.
