With this cold, dry weather I have been reaching for moisturizing body wash every time I shower ~ I am loving these two:
Miss Precious has very sensitive skin so the Dove has worked nicely for her:
I can't believe she is 5 now! I truly love my 2 grands more than my next breath!

I have recently tried L'Oreal Hydra Perfecte Powder and I am impressed!
It is translucent and gave just a natural glow without shimmer - it was a hunt to find it but definitely worth it ~ I plan to order multiples.  It helps set your foundation without heaviness or changing color.
(I buy & pay for all the products I am using and review.)
Ulta is giving 20% off Strivectin prods for the next week.  These are excellent prods that give results.
This prod gives the benefits of retinol without the flaking & irritation.  And with 20% off I can afford to battle wrinkles every day!

I know I should not have too much salt but since using pink sea salt I don't feel so guilty.  As a Southern girl, I think everything needs salt!  So I have been using this:
Just need a little & I do put it on everything!
A great recipe for using good salt is Rosemary Mixed Nuts - there are many different varieties of this recipe & here are some easy ones:
Rosemary is a lovely herb to grow indoors - I keep it in my sun-room ~ it's time to start some of my other favorite indoor herbs: dill, parsley, oregano

For those of you who love Christmas, all day, every day, a radio station in NY is now playing Christmas music 24 hours a day, seven days a week -  They rebranded the station as "Santa 105.7 FM".   You can listen to the station live online

I want to have a giveaway to show my appreciation for my lovely followers - I always enjoy hearing from you & love sharing information on the latest prods we need in our life.
So, The Spring 2015 Giveaway has begun!  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!
