A sad week has arrived that I have been dreading - my best friend is moving out of state.
I wish for all of you to have a friend like her.
Now I know she will need things to help her settle in & I want her to know that I am thinking about her.  So I want to send her a goodie box of things she would not buy for herself.  I have a number of nice samples that I have received from Ulta & Sephora that I am putting in a make up bag.  What else should I send?  It has to be something that will survive the shipping companies so I won't send perfume!  I know she loves pumpkin raisin bread so that will be in the box - I will completely freeze the loaf and triple wrap it and put it in a zipped storage bag.  I am also getting a subscription for a magazine that she can enjoy in the evenings.  I could not find a Sephora or Ulta close to her so a gift card is out - though I could order it myself & have it sent to her.
                                      What would you like to have? 

The heat here in the South is outrageous - but I saw Halloween items in a store so I just have to hold out for fall!

I have been using these 2 different highlighters and like both of them.
Pixi by Petra in Brightening Peach - it does lighten the under eye area and has a firm texture - put this on after your moisturizer.
The Mally Perfect Prep is a lighter formulation which takes just a tiny bit to brighten any area that seems to have shadows - under the eye, the smile lines & the outside corners of the eyes.  It really lasts a long time.

If you enjoy mocha lattes you have to try this brand:
It is so delicious!
Many times it's all I need in the morning.
I love my chicken salad on organic mixed greens - that's what is for lunch today!
Stay cool my lovelies!
