I am not a summer person - I don't really like anything about it: the heat & humidity, the bugs - even the clothes don't seem exciting.  But when the make up companies start teasing us with the holiday releases, I think I can live another day.  Too Faced kinda, sort of gave us some pics that look interesting (about half way down the page at:
It would seem  "Peppermint Mocha, Eggnog Latte, Gingerbread Cookies" could be scents/eye shadows for the 2016 holiday season.  Surely they will start appearing by Sept!

Ulta sent me a 20% discount but unfortunately the website was wonky so I did not order everything I had originally planned.  But I was pleased for the most part:

It Cosmetics CC+ Radiance Ombre Bronzer

This is a matte bronzer - the bottom half is too dark for me but the top half will work.

 Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Paste

This  will help create my 'piecey' ends

L'Oreal Colour Riche Pocket Palette

                                          Left: Violet Amour~~~~Right: Avenue Des Roses
 These are small and perfect for travel - I think a variety of these will make nice gifts - young people will enjoy playing with the variety of colors.

Ulta Hello Beautiful Deluxe Palette

28 Limited Edition Eyeshadow Shades

Mini Butter Balm in Belle

Mini Matte Lip Cream in Striking

Mini Eyeliner in Black Out



Banana Powder

Bronzer and a large mirror

This will make a great gift - it's not too early to think about the holidays!

 There were some other things but these were the most important. A little bird told me there might be another 20% discount in Aug - or at least Sept - I have already started creating my list!
My adorable grandchildren were here last week and we decided to go to the science museum. GD was there when she was 2 and apparently is still not afraid of the dinosaurs 4 yrs later:
