Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder is a beautiful bronzer but the price difference is not substantial at various retailers.
Walmart has it for $53.00 and it is only $54.00 at Nordstrom & Sephora.  I was surprised that there was not more of a discount.  At least with the beauty stores you get samples & points.
I find many bronzers are too dark for my skin and it is a hunt to find the right one.
Right now I am using Laura Geller, Physician's Formula & Estee Lauder.
Do you have a favorite?
Of course I dropped one!  At least it wasn't an expensive one.

My hair has grown and I am ready for it to be cut - I will start with a bob and hopefully be brave and put layers back into my style.  I miss my stylist!

The new stylist I tried cut my hair in a 'lob' and I am very happy with it- it has a few layers and is shorter in the back.  I will go back to her in all likely hood.  Of course it did not hurt that she said I don't look my age - that is an extra tip right there!  And yes, this is my natural color - this is what mother nature gave me after breast cancer.
I use this as my finishing spray - which is almost empty.  I guess I should use the 20% off at Ulta to get another can - Kenra Shine Spray - I love it!

Bronze Goddess Shimmering Oil Spray for Hair & Body
This is wonderful for your skin.  It is moisturizing and gives a soft sheen to the skin.  I spray it on my hands and run it thru my hair so there is no concentration on one spot.
Here we are facing half a year gone - in a few weeks the craft stores will have the Halloween stuff in and I am just not ready for such hot weather - 95' is too much!
Be well everyone.

Thankful To Be Able To Do So! ♡

I have noticed bloggers are sharing some of their favorite pieces for spring & summer and they are things I like also.  Lilac seems to be popular and python which is one of my favorite handbags = my Gucci Python bag - ok, I like it soooo much I don't use it.  How crazy is that??!!!
Other summer bags:

I don't think python will ever go out of style -  I just adore this purse.
What are some of your favorite summer bags?

My only child (who is bringing a car load of people to Easter lunch) wanted to know if I was making tea ~ and by this, we mean only sweet tea.  I was almost at a loss for words - as if this child ever sat down at my table without a fresh pitcher of tea.  Apparently, he was subtly asking me to teach his wife.
Yes we all have our own way but it is not rocket science.
Now I use family size tea bags for a crowd and I don't care whether it is Lipton or Luzianne (whatever is on sale).  I boil my water in a 4qt Revere wear stainless steel pot and have already added a cup of sugar (and a pinch!).  Remove from the heat and add tea bags - now begin watching the time for 12-15 mins.  Remove the bags and have a cup of hot tea ~ then enjoy it over ice thru lunch.  I can't have caffeine during the rest of the day because I am an insomniac and can't sleep. But up until 11:00am I am full-on tea drinker!
Tell us your recipe.

I just wanted to pop in and say hello.  I have a retina problem and of course the specialist is not available for 2 weeks.  I am working on a new post and it is almost finished and I will get it out very soon.
I hope everyone is well and having nice weather.  My best wishes to everyone and we will talk soon.

The lovely and stylish Nicole from:
https://highlatitudestyle.com
asked how some of us prep our skin for spring & summer.  It does take some work because I was not careful with my skin as a teenager.  Now at 65 it shows!!!  She particularly wanted to know how we address issues with our legs but I use the same products and exfoliation for all over my body.
Below are some of my favorite products:
Josie Maran Argan Oil Body Butter
L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Spray Salon Airbrush
Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Exfoliater

This spray makes it easy to get behind the arms & legs and has no scent.

I tried Sun Drops - self tanner and anti-aging serum but it did not work for me.
 I added a couple of drops to my moisturizer and it was just too 'orangey' for my personal taste.
This was over $20 so it had to go back.  Tell us what is your favorite self-tanner.  I will try anything once!

I recently got an email that Walmart is going to carry premium brands of make-up including Clinique, Bare Minerals and Lancome.  I suspect some of these will be online only but that's ok if the price is right.

I hope your Easter is a nice one and everyone has good weather.

Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess is one of my favorite summer scents.
So when I saw the Exfoliating Body Cleanser I knew it had to come home with me (oh, ok, I bought 2!!)
The scent is exactly like the perfume so you have fragrance every time you shower.  I just may have to go back for more!!!

Ulta had Kenra products on sale and these are some I keep around all the time.
Someone mentioned to me that Ulta will have one of their 20% off everything sales in April ~ so in preparation I have been going thru some of my favorite things to re-order.
I really like No7 products but I am not as consistent as I should be.  There is good science behind the products and my sensitive skin likes these items.
So what are you going to load up on?


http://www.thisautoimmunelife.com very kindly featured by front door wreath.  Their weekly blog is fun and has many creative ideas - do stop by!!

This precious angel starts high school this fall.
I cannot believe time has gone by so quickly - I think I will just hide him in the closet and keep him for myself!  He is everything I wanted in a grandchild and I love him more than my next breath.

** Be sure to hop over to Nicole's blog and see some more of us beauty bloggers (I was featured!).
She is very stylish and super nice!

Thank you so much - it is rare beauty bloggers are featured no matter how many times we link up.  Great outfits need make up - like champagne needs bubbles!!!!!!!!

Estee Lauder was having an event and with this wonderful purchase I received the lovlies below.  This cream is heavenly and absorbs quickly - I am sure to use this before going out since it has SPF.
And then I got this free!  The highlighter Heatwave
I need another highlighter like I need another hole in my head (and I've had 4 brain surgeries!) but this is too beautiful to resist.
These samples just make me love the products more - EL knows my weakness!  I keep these small samples for traveling.
I put these creams on morning and night, sometimes adding argan oil afterwards ~ especially with the awful cold we have had in the South.

I have been seeing this type of shoe everywhere ~ which is great because I love them!
Mules with embroidery seem to be a lovely trend this year.  I keep these shoes for Christmas but I definitely need to add some more.


The Grands were here this weekend and finally got to see snow - and of course GD had to bring me the daffodils she found (I had forgotten about them!).
 Then it was time to come in and get hot chocolate - they were soaked!  They both will need new snow boots for next winter.

 I am not quite done with the spring wreath-it needs a new bow.

I was fiddling on the internet and came across a post whereby someone was befuddled over SEOs, the elements of traffic, back links, significant data, click funnels(???) & platforms.
Oh my stars!!!  I do not know what half this stuff is.  My content is inspired by what is happening in my life and what I think will be of interest to others.  My degree is in English not engineering!

 Grandkids Spoiled?  YES!
