I have liked most of the Physicians Formula products that I have tried and the new Super BB Insta Ready Filter BB Bronzer (what a name!) is no exception.  It is a great bronzer for my fair skin and it has SPF 30 - there was no muddiness or orange tone and no odor.  I used a big fluffy brush all over my face and it looked great.  It was so good, I bought a 2nd one for my backup!
I am always in organizing mode and I have a variety of items that will be a big help
I love that these are clear & so easy to see what you have.  I also like decorative organization which includes these lovely boxes from a craft store:
                                               Now if I can just get some of this into these!
I am crazy about eye shadow ~ I will buy an entire palette for one color! But organizing the big palettes is cumbersome - I like the wooden basket idea the best so far ~ these will look nice if I keep them sitting out. (the plastic basket stays in the armoire in my dressing room)

If you like eye shadow I think you are going to like .............
Urban Decay's Naked and Smoky eye shadow palettes (Smoky was just released in 2015) ~ and I will be giving both of these away to some lucky followers!!!!! These are considered some of the most popular eye shadow palettes ever produced - nothing is too good for my followers!  If you are following you could be the lucky owner of one of these fabulous eye shadow palettes!

The snow arrived!  And of course by next weekend it will be 60 degs!  Only in the South.
I am grateful for the moisture as we have had drought on the acreage for the past year - I worry that someone will throw out a cigarette and catch the 30ac on fire.

I am using this new Color 10 in 1 from L'Oreal - it's called a spray protector and helps with 10 diff hair issues: 1-Protection  2-Shine  3-Softness  4-Consistency of hair fibers  5-Smothness  6-Detangling  7-Easier blow dry  8-Anti-breakage  9-Protects against the look of split ends
10-Helps reduce frizz
I am glad it has UV filters and I like the shine it provides ~ I was able to skip instant conditioner after showering.  There was also noticeable volume after blow drying - it's a keeper!

OPI's spring collection has some lovely colors - and since I had 20% off one item at Ulta, I purchased "Spare Me a French Quarter".  This is a gorgeous berry color that will be great all year.

I don't know why I am smiling because my head has hurt for 2 days even with the heavy hitter pain meds.  But that is the thing about migraineurs - we feel that we have to soldier on and put on the happy face.  It's exhausting and it really does not fool anyone - most of the family can look at my eyes and know that the headache monster is here.  But I just refuse to miss any more time with my grandchildren - I resent the time I have lost but after 4 brain surgeries there is no more to be done.
So I choose to smile!
Be well my loves.

I saw this eye shadow from Cover Girl Trunaked Roses palette mentioned as a dupe for the  Urban Decay Naked 3.
I can see it.  I really prefer this formulation because the shimmer is not so over the top.  The colors are lovely & some of my favorite shades  -  perfect to coordinate with this year's Color of the Year.
 There is a nice silky feel to these and so easy to use - for under $10 very handy and I will not get bent out of shape if the airline destroys this!
This mineral lip gloss from Ulta is a great product.  The Rose Garnet color is perfect for all seasons and is just the right amount of moisture  ~  this definitely needs a 'back up' so I'll buy 2 more!
The Brilliant Color Lip Gloss from Ulta in Guava is very similar in color and would be a good back up.  The same product in "Cupcake" was too pink so I gave that away.

I think this is a great polish for Valentines Day~Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy in Queen of Hearts:
I use a nail polish dryer to speed things along and help set the topcoat:

I wanted to refresh the master bath and found 2 different items at different stores but all things coordinated just right!  I like the valance so it stays.
I found a new waste basket that coordinates with the above colors:
This 3 tier organizer was under $10 and fits nicely in this space.

The grandchildren are spending the weekend so I will roast a turkey on Sunday along with "cheesy" potatoes as GD calls my potato casserole:

Good Morning!  I love mocha cappuccino.......
 Ladies, it's the first of the month so it's a good time to use the 'purple' shampoo.  If you have blonde, white or salt & pepper hair, this type of shampoo will refresh the color of your hair ~ no matter if it is out of a bottle or natural!
My Ulta order arrived but it did not save me a trip to the store because one item arrived crushed!  What a mess!
This is a new item I was excited to try but someone working in the warehouse had other plans!

But luckily this new eye shadow palette arrived safely in bubble wrap and I am enjoying these colors very much: Revlon Colorstay Romantic Nudes
I am always looking for a product that will provide volume & texture for my fine hair.  And living in the South we have to battle heat & humidity every day for most of  the year.  So let's try these 2:
                                     Suave Sea Mineral Infusion Texturizing Sea Salt Spray
                                    L'Oreal Paris Hair Care Advanced Hairstyle Boost It Texture Mist
I used both of these ~one on each side of my hair to see if there was a big difference - there was not.
Both added a little volume - both had a mild scent that dissipated quickly so there is no conflict with your perfume.  You can easily brush through your style and rearrange it if needed.  A big plus for me is that there was no feeling of product build up on my clean hair -I hate when that happens!
If I was on a deserted island and could only have one?  I would go with Suave.
There just seemed to be more body to this product and gave more texture to my hair.

I found this adorable pin in a small shop~it will look great on a denim jacket:
I found this nice compilation of cooking conversions that will be handy in the kitchen:$/
I saw my beloved chocolate coffee is in decaf!!  It's on it's way to me!
