If you are not big on bronzer but would like a little glow, you should look at Ambient Lighting Powder by Hourglass Cosmetics
Luminous Light (L) and Mood Light (R)  -  these powders are not glittery and give just a slight sheen.  They are perfect for this time of year.
I use these along the top of my cheeks bones - it takes very little product so you will get a lot of use from these.  I have had mine for well over a year and am not even half way thru these.

I pulled out my Laura Geller Fortifying Eye Lash Primer and now remember how much I liked it!
It is a black color without the little fibers and gives good coverage - in the above photo, I have no mascara on and my lashes are very soft.  This product is supposed to be good for the lashes so I am going to be more conscious about using it.

I had to give the grands back as spring break is over.  But it was a nice time to stop at the outlets for a 'little' haul!!!!
I have not tried everything yet but I know that I love all the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess products.
The Origins BB is a tinted moisturizer with white tea and SPF15 - this is new to me so I am excited to try this.

It is cold and rainy here & I wanted something tasteful for a snack so I looked up Rosemary Mixed Nuts (the Barefoot Contessa has a similar recipe) - with just a handful of ingredients and 5 mins I had heaven on a plate!  I love salty and nuts are one of my favorite snacks.  I had been to BJ's and picked up a 3lb container of mixed nuts. So I combined butter, chopped rosemary, sea salt, cayenne pepper and a little brown sugar - it does not get easier than this.  I did not bother to let this cool - I just dug in!
 And this reminds me - I need to get a rosemary plant for the sun-room.

Congratulations to Miss Sandy for winning one of the Naked eye shadow palettes-I hope you enjoy it!  I still have several other palettes waiting in the wings!

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

  9. This post came just at the right time for me! I need to sort through my skin care and makeup and update. I've never used a lash primer and as I get older my lashes need to be tinted. Yours look amazing so I'm sold. I'm pleased I found your blog which I will be following. I'm Sue from Sizzling Towards Sixty and thank you for sharing with us at Over the Moon.

  10. So glad to have you visit! I am a 62 yr old grandmother and enjoy finding products that address my skin needs at this age.
    So nice to meet you!

  11. Your Rosemary mixed nuts recipe caught my attention because I love peanuts, so curious how adding rosemary to it make a difference. Will definitely try this at some point. #tastytuesdays

  12. I'll have to look into that bronzer. Thanks!

  13. Love the bronzers. Since i have fair skin I dont use them, but use shimmer bricks by Bobby Brown, they illuminate, which is what I like with both products. Sounds like you enjoyed time with your grandkids, thats great
