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.

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.
    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!
