I do love this newer fragrance from Nest ~ Black Tulip
It is dark and floral and can easily smell  plum, pink pepper, black amber and  Japanese violet.
Others have noted it is similar to  Lancome's "La Vie Est Belle, though I find Tulip is mysteriously darker.  Wish it lasted a little longer but I am happy to apply more!
It is worth every penny!

Sorry to be so long posting - dr appts & tests have kept me busy and exhausted.  So rather than fiddle with make up I have been using self tanner.  Some of these even have spf so that is a bonus!

I had bananas that needed to be used up so banana bread was in order.  I always add nuts to mine and I prefer pecans - they have a sweeter taste.

I baked this in a bundt pan which makes it easy to slice & freeze a portion if you want.
  • 3 12 cups flour
  • 3 cups sugar (I use 1 cup of brown sugar)
  • 1 12 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 12 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp all spice (opt)
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 4 eggs
  • 23 cup water
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
Hope you are well and enjoying summer!
