How cute is this!!  I found this darling train case at Ulta & it contains all sorts of eye shadows, blushes, lip gloss & applicators.  I have not used any yet but it will be fun to try all these-it's called 'Just in Case' and would make a nice gift.
I have got to go to the nail salon today, as we are expecting bad weather by tomorrow & on thru Thur - if you have to drive in this mess please be very careful & I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I love this holiday and wish you & yours a wonderful day.

Yesterday I picked up the Thanksgiving turkey but it cost me dearly - a broken toe!!!
That bad boy was 23lbs and I managed to drop it right on my foot - I have way too much to do but am sitting around with the foot propped up - not my idea of fun.  Thankfully I have already been to the salon so that task is done for the month; but there is still silver to be polished and the Thanksgiving china to be sorted.
Maybe now is a good time to pull out the chocolates I have stashed!

This is a nice seasonal lip gloss from Maybelline:
 It's called Berry Brillance and it's a lovely color/nice pigment.  The applicator is slanted & I was able to apply it without a mirror.  It is a limited edition so I will probably go back for Raspberry Ablaze.

Do you have favorite recipes for the holidays?  I make a potato casserole that is delicious & just as good the next day- though I rarely have leftovers=they are scooped up & disappear!  I would love to know some of  your favorites.  Collecting recipes is one of my favorite things to do.
Happy weekend to you.

I tried a sample of Living Proof Full Thickening Cream.  Since I have fine hair I need volume without crunchiness - and this certainly is not.  It smells very nice & my hair absorbed it quickly.  But apparently my hair is mean & this conditioner lost the fight.  I looked great as I left the house but by lunch time, I needed major lift - us Southern girls love our big hair! Finding volume will be a continued search.

 I want to show you my current love in perfume: Viktor & Rolf "Flowerbomb".
I have the perfume, hair mist & roller ball with lip gloss.  It is a beautiful floral scent & the designers say the women that choose the perfume are: glamorous, intelligent & provocative - yes, we are !!
 The lip gloss is not goopy & was somewhat moisturizing.  Be assured the hair mist is just that - it is not hairspray (maybe if I used enough!)
Before this, I adored Coco by Chanel for over 10yrs - when I love something, I am loyal & a good customer - it pays not to aggravate me.  So...........
There is a number in each box of Flowerbomb that includes you in the company's secret service  - except it is not working (for me) in the USA !!!  Excuse me but if you are going to take my money, I should be entitled to all the benefits any other customer would receive.  From what I understand, my money spends very well & baby boomers are the fastest growing segment of society = $$$$$$$$$$
Let me put it this way:  Perfumes are just like men and buses.........another one will always come along.

Happy Monday!
