Last week I featured Blush as a major player in wardrobe colors  ~
I did not share enough how the color permeates my wardrobe......!!!

Champagne diamonds have a lovely blush color (bracelet bottom row) - I should wear this more than I do!

My recent haul from Ulta:

And the samples:
The No7 products are wonderful - I will continue to buy these whenever there is a sale!
By the way,  Butter London Sheer Wisdom Lip Oil is on sale at Ulta and it is a great product:
This color is Cinnamon Spice - a lovely, natural color-no stickiness & yet moisturizes.

Someone mentioned on her blog that she is enjoying
BareMinerals Mineral Veil Finishing Powder ~ I too think this is a wonderful product esp for sensitive skin.  I have been using a number of products from this line within the past year and my skin has been happy!

I am now testing out their newest launch ~ Brillant Future

Benefits of this anti-aging serum:
Dermatologist tested. Non-comedogenic - VitC -
Mineral manganese -
Chai hu extract -Renew radiance - Combat the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
This sinks in quickly and has no noticeable fragrance ~ after this I apply my moisturizer which contains SPF.
 I am happy that VitC is part of this serum - so far no reaction from my finicky skin!

I am still in snacking mode even though the holidays are over - but I want something more upscale - not kid junk food!  I devised this recipe using the old stand by, ranch flavoring.  Melt 1 stick of butter and add seasonings that you like = mine are pinch of chili powder, onion & garlic powder, packet of ranch, TBS Worcestershire, parsely flakes, organic seasoning and seasoned salt.  I poured this all over gluten-free crackers, pretzels, cheddar crackers, rice and/or wheat cereal & mixed nuts.  Mix together then put in 300 deg oven and stir every 15 mins - between 1/2 hour to full hour - then lay on paper toweling (while you nibble!).

The longer I live in Texas the more I love the South. It's for that southern charm.                                               Winston Churchill was a wise man .............

  10. Winston Churchill really was a wise man! Love the colour blush on you - unfortunately it doesn't work on me, but I can use it as an accessory. Good thing as I love it! Thank you so much for sharing your adventures with us at Hearth and Soul. Hope to 'see' you again this week!

  11. I am going to have to try the mineral makeup! I have heard it was great for sensitive skin (Which I have)! Thanks for the review!

  12. I love the way you mixed blush with hot pink. Blush looks terrible on me, though I've bought several pieces. It hadn't crossed my mind to pair it with hot pink. Thanks for the great idea. :)

  13. I love blush, pink...anything in that hue! <3 Love all the products you showcase. I actually stopped using Bare Minerals, my skin is just way to dry. I'm on the hunt for a new foundation. Thank you for sharing at Dishing It & Digging It!

    Enjoy the rest of your weekend,

    Xoxo, Victoria
