I have been on a brush-buying binge lately:
 The real Techniques brush (on the right) is super soft and retractable - probably my new favorite.
COCO eau de parfum Chanel - I just recently found this in the dressing room armoire and though it is over 10yrs old, it still smells fabulous!  I can't decide to go ahead and use it up or keep it for posterity!

My gang loves fajitas and this in-the-oven method looks great:
  Oven Fajitas
The directions are at the  link - it seems like a great recipe!

Work Like You Don't Need The Money
Love Like You've Never Been Hurt
Dance Like Nobody's Watching

And Live Like It's Heaven On Earth

Aveeno makes a nice daily moisturizer:
My sensitive skin is happy with this product and the SPF30 is an extra bonus.

Tarte Beauty in the Basics 6 Piece Makeup Set will debut on QVC as the TSV for May 11 and though I will probably not purchase it as I have enough Tarte sets to last for eternity, if you have not tried this brand this will be a good choice to try it  out.

Here are some of my sets:
I really have enjoyed all the products I have bought and can't wait to see the fall line!

If you enjoy trying restaurant recipes here is a link to copy cat recipes - there are a ton of them!

The joys of spring: chasing after bubbles!

Since Sephora was having a sale, I could not be rude and not participate!!!!!!
Here are some of my new pretties:
Josie Maran Argan Liquid Gold Self-Tanning Oil
This has a vanilla & apricot scent and though not awful, I will be happy for it to dissipate.  The color was light and authentic - not orange.  I am hoping this will be worth the price. 

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Powder Bronzer
This is a nice matte color which seems darker than the "Light" it is called.
It will not take a lot of product for everyday bronzing.
But this is not a flat matte but yet is not shimmery - it is a large compact and will easily last until next year.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF20
 I have been very happy with this prod and it is perfect for Southern summers - coverage with sun protection and a very light feel on the skin.

It has been cool and rainy here so I have enjoyed making comfort foods.  Rosemary seasoned nuts are a good snack and so easy:
   Once in a while I will allow myself sweet carbs and have French Toast for breakfast, though I rarely have breakfast (so that makes it ok!!):
Do you have a sweet indulgence?
