If you like Chanel, here is a quick look at some of the fall collection:

The blush & lip gloss may need to come home with me!

I found this leave-in conditioner on clearance at Ulta and really like it - but the original price seems high for such a small bottle. Alterna is a brand I have been wanting to try so I think I will also order Bamboo Beach Summer Sunshine Spray.

Ulta sent another 20% off flyer to me and I have compiled quite a list!  I will pare down some of the summer items & just wait for next year to get
those - some of which will probably be new & improved.

I apologize for the short update but the migraine is bigger than me!

A sad week has arrived that I have been dreading - my best friend is moving out of state.
I wish for all of you to have a friend like her.
Now I know she will need things to help her settle in & I want her to know that I am thinking about her.  So I want to send her a goodie box of things she would not buy for herself.  I have a number of nice samples that I have received from Ulta & Sephora that I am putting in a make up bag.  What else should I send?  It has to be something that will survive the shipping companies so I won't send perfume!  I know she loves pumpkin raisin bread so that will be in the box - I will completely freeze the loaf and triple wrap it and put it in a zipped storage bag.  I am also getting a subscription for a magazine that she can enjoy in the evenings.  I could not find a Sephora or Ulta close to her so a gift card is out - though I could order it myself & have it sent to her.
                                      What would you like to have? 

The heat here in the South is outrageous - but I saw Halloween items in a store so I just have to hold out for fall!

I have been using these 2 different highlighters and like both of them.
Pixi by Petra in Brightening Peach - it does lighten the under eye area and has a firm texture - put this on after your moisturizer.
The Mally Perfect Prep is a lighter formulation which takes just a tiny bit to brighten any area that seems to have shadows - under the eye, the smile lines & the outside corners of the eyes.  It really lasts a long time.

If you enjoy mocha lattes you have to try this brand:
It is so delicious!
Many times it's all I need in the morning.
I love my chicken salad on organic mixed greens - that's what is for lunch today!
Stay cool my lovelies!

With heat & high humidity here in the South I sometimes skip conditioner after shampooing - but I still love a high shine so this product is my new best friend:
It has a pretty scent and does not leave the heaviness that many argan oil products can - you just lightly mist over the top of your hair and you are good to go!

I am fairly sure I will use hair spray until the end of time and this Platinum Working Spray by Kenra is great!  You can easily comb thru it if you want to rearrange your style and there is no stickiness.  Once I am finished styling my hair I use the Kenra Super Hold Finishing Spray.

I admit to hoarding if I really love a product so this week I have been busy!
I found these Estee Lauder items at an outlet and since they are seasonal I am terrified of not being able to find them again - so Friday I am going back for more!!!!!!!!!!

I love salads this time of year and a chef's salad is a favorite - you can use whatever is on hand to make a nice lunch:
Take care of yourself in this terrible heat!
