     Some of My favorite things from 2015

Kenra Professional Platinum Texturizing Mist

It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Romantics

Perricone Hyalo Plasma

Lancome Lip Lover in Framboise Etoile
 This is the first time I have tried Lancome products and am thrilled with both of these -
just what I need - another obsession!!!

Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara
Sea Salt & Chocolate Caramels

And though I tried a different color scheme for my holiday decorating this year, I am running, racing back to my beloved pink shabby chic!!  (pic from last year)
I plan for this tree to be over the top next year!  As a matter of fact, I am already on the hunt for any thing pink for the 2016 year - which should work out beautifully since it is one of Pantone's Color of the Year!

And last but not least, my favorite thing for 2015 is being their grandmother:
I love them more than my next breath!

 Full Time Grandma

Let 2016 be the best year ever for all of you!  Much Love!

Pink isn't just a color ~ it's an attitude!

I had my stylist cut my hair shorter than normal - which was ok because it has grown quickly:
I normally wear my hair more along this length:
I have a couple of weeks to decide on what ever I am going to do - my hair has become fine now that I am older so I need layers for body.  My stylist wants to go with a "Lisa Rinna" cut - which would not be a lot different than the above cut.  I am open to all opinions!
(Forgive the mess in my dressing room - just too much to do for the holidays!)

I know it's really Christmas because all the silver is polished - thank you Mr. 4 Forty Years!!

Wishing you every happiness now & next year!

Here is Pantone's color of the year: (2!)   Rose Quartz and Serenity PANTONE Color Standards
for Creating with Rose Quartz & Serenity                                                      
I can definitely love these colors - I did not like Marsala but loved Radiant Orchid.  I will be working the Rose Quartz into my holiday scheme in the upcoming year.

I think the tree is reallly, finally done!!
I have fiddled with it long enough and unless GD starts 'working' on it, I am finished!

Do you like cinnamon buns?  They are a favorite here & we eat them all day long!
And because I have already had my sweet, I will be good & have a chef's salad for lunch - with leftover turkey, ham, hard boiled eggs & my wonderful black olives:
Pumpkin Raisin Bread being shipped to my friend in KY - we miss you Sandy!!

I bought Caudalie Lip Conditioner during Sephora's sale and it is certainly a nice product but not worth $12 to me - there are drugstore brands like Maybelline's Baby Lips that give me the same moisturizing effect at a fraction of the cost - I have been using these for a couple of years and I like the conditioning along with color - so easy to put in the current purse & go out the door.
I am loving Kenra Professional Platinum Texturizing Mist 6
It is light weight and not overly stiff so it gives some body to my fine hair.  There is a nice soft scent but it does not interfere with your perfume.  You can easily brush thru your hair style if you want and rearrange your style.
I have enjoyed every Kenra product I have used so far.

I tried Dr. Perricone's Face Finishing Moisturizer Tint and did not have luck with the product.  It caused stinging & dryness on my face, so I am returning it.
Face Finishing Moisturizer Tint

But other items like the prods in Plasma Essentials have been wonderful, including:
Blue Plasma Cleansing Treatment - which calmed down my sensitive skin - the cleanser is applied to the face and no rinsing is necessary.
 Cold Plasma Eye
and Hyalo Plasma and Photo Plasma - which is a lovely light pink color and has SPF 30 - the perfect every day moisturizer.
It was a nice sale on the Perricone website which prompted me to try this line and I am glad I did. The Hyalo Plasma gave instant moisture to the area around my eyes.  It softened fine lines which I am delighted to have any time!  I really like this product and will buy it again.

Do you have some favorite winter beauty products?

The Thanksgiving sale at Ulta had some really good buys so this was the order I placed in between basting the turkey!!  My goodies were all in stock so they should show up any day - can't wait!

   Kenra products were available as buy one, get one 50% off - I really like these sprays & hoard them during each sale!  The Shine Spray was only $8.50!

 Bed Head Masterpiece Shine Hairspray & Travel Size
This is normally $23.00 and Ulta had it on sale at $9.99 - it's a great product that I have used for years so I could not let this get away.

I'm good now until the spring collections become available.
