Since we had so much notice for the snowstorm did you make plans  - maybe some advance spring cleaning?  Cleaning jewelry is not fun but necessary and some of the silver needed it, esp pieces I have not worn in a while.  Even though I keep my silver in a 'tarnish safe keeper' some pieces need extra attention.  No I did not clean all of these - just the ones yelling the loudest!!
 I have a ton of  bronzers but I am testing out 2 new - to - me:
  Too Faced Bronzed & Poreless
This is a beautiful color and appears darker in the compact than when applied.  It is very finely milled and only a little bit of powder is required - you could certainly build on this but for me just a light swipe with a brush and it's done!

Physicians Formula  Bronze Booster Season to Season
I really like the 4 diff variations of color in this compact - I am using Winter and Spring.  These separately or combined will be perfect now and thru summer - for overall color and a little contouring.  I scraped off the little shimmer ball in the center because it is not necessary since there is a light sheen in the powder - but not to the point of glitter - also no odor or orange tone.

Here is a new entry into the bronzer field but have not been able to find it yet ~
 Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer Murumuru Butter Bronzer - Spring 2016
 Physicians Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzer
Infused with Murumuru Butter, Cupuacu Butter and Tucuma Butter, this should be good for the skin. I am afraid this is going to be too shimmery for me but will give it a try when I find it - it might be a good choice as a base layer.

This Magic Mosaic in  Warm Beige / Light Bronzer has been a goodie for the past couple of years - I swirl it all together and use it all year.  I definitely use more bronzer than blush.

 I just placed an Ulta order - with 20% off & $6 cash rewards, I picked up some things I wanted to try and some oldie goldies:

 ColorStay Not Just Nudes Palette  Romantic

I can't wait to try this - should be perfect for spring & summer when you don't want to bother with foundation.

 If you are a stitcher the storm urges you to pull out something to work on:
As a daily migraineur, I may go months and not do one stitch and I regret how much time I have lost over the years.  I would like to do a new Christmas piece and as you can see, no stitches are in progress!  But if I let it sit there and keep looking at it, maybe, just maybe..........
I forced myself to complete this alphabet sampler when GD was on the way:
I like to think one day it might hang in her daughter's room.
