I recently got this face serum from Ulta: Vichy Liftactiv Serum 10.  The box states it is for sensitive skin so I am excited to try this.   I think I need to add a serum in the never ending battle against wrinkles!
According to Vichy (owned by L'Oreal):
“Our breakthrough formula features Rhamnose, a naturally derived plant sugar extracted in its purest form. Rhamnose in a 5% concentration, has been clinically proven to improve skin rejuvenation at the source; improving  collagen production elastin, production and cellular turnover.”
Please let it be true!!!
 I like lip gloss because it deflects the wrinkles on the lips - I got this in 2 colors which will be nice for this time of year:  Shiny Sheer Lip Gloss in Rouge & Fuchsia - very pretty colors.

I recently found these polishes ~ Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy in 'Winning Streak' and the sparkles are Sephora by OPI  in 'It's Bouquet with me'
 I really like this lavender color but it will be more appropriate for spring - but I need this manicure to go to a party so I will add the sparkles for festivity.
I have tried most every color of polish in this line and some of the colors just simply last longer than others - why?  I don't know but it's true.  Some last a few days before starting to chip - others have held up beautifully for over 12 days.
This color is 2 coats and the top coat - will be interesting to see how long this new one lasts and I am a serious hand washer!

Was $72 of after-Halloween candy too much?  No, I don't think so either-it's not going to get any cheaper and this should tide me over until Christmas!!!!!!!!!!!
I will use some of this to top off cookies & cakes for the holiday baking - which should get under- way soon!

I am now officially the "Miracle Maker" Mimi!  My precious GS desperately wanted this Lego set:
I hunted this toy down like a rabid dog!!  Yes I spent hours looking for this - I was on waiting lists and finally today I got the call it was available - he will be so surprised because we sort of warned him that it was in short supply - but it was worth it because he is a grateful child.  Now, keeping it hidden will be the endurance test!
