Here is Pantone's color of the year: (2!)   Rose Quartz and Serenity PANTONE Color Standards
for Creating with Rose Quartz & Serenity                                                      
I can definitely love these colors - I did not like Marsala but loved Radiant Orchid.  I will be working the Rose Quartz into my holiday scheme in the upcoming year.

I think the tree is reallly, finally done!!
I have fiddled with it long enough and unless GD starts 'working' on it, I am finished!

Do you like cinnamon buns?  They are a favorite here & we eat them all day long!
And because I have already had my sweet, I will be good & have a chef's salad for lunch - with leftover turkey, ham, hard boiled eggs & my wonderful black olives:
Pumpkin Raisin Bread being shipped to my friend in KY - we miss you Sandy!!

I bought Caudalie Lip Conditioner during Sephora's sale and it is certainly a nice product but not worth $12 to me - there are drugstore brands like Maybelline's Baby Lips that give me the same moisturizing effect at a fraction of the cost - I have been using these for a couple of years and I like the conditioning along with color - so easy to put in the current purse & go out the door.
I am loving Kenra Professional Platinum Texturizing Mist 6
It is light weight and not overly stiff so it gives some body to my fine hair.  There is a nice soft scent but it does not interfere with your perfume.  You can easily brush thru your hair style if you want and rearrange your style.
I have enjoyed every Kenra product I have used so far.

I tried Dr. Perricone's Face Finishing Moisturizer Tint and did not have luck with the product.  It caused stinging & dryness on my face, so I am returning it.
Face Finishing Moisturizer Tint

But other items like the prods in Plasma Essentials have been wonderful, including:
Blue Plasma Cleansing Treatment - which calmed down my sensitive skin - the cleanser is applied to the face and no rinsing is necessary.
 Cold Plasma Eye
and Hyalo Plasma and Photo Plasma - which is a lovely light pink color and has SPF 30 - the perfect every day moisturizer.
It was a nice sale on the Perricone website which prompted me to try this line and I am glad I did. The Hyalo Plasma gave instant moisture to the area around my eyes.  It softened fine lines which I am delighted to have any time!  I really like this product and will buy it again. (All products purchased by me)

Do you have some favorite winter beauty products?

Pink isn't just a color ~ it's an attitude!

  3. Your tree looks great! I love baby lips products.

  4. So happy to find you through Lisa's Grand Social. I love the new Pantone colors for the year too - and took notes on your suggestions here - Maybelline Baby Lips (who knew?). My lips are always dry - and i love the fraction of a cost aspect. And will look into Perricone products. I've never used them but I have sensitive skin too. Thanks so much! And your tree, by the way - is so pretty.

  5. I have fine hair, love Kenra products. Your tree looks wonderful I love both colors , the rose is stunning just thinking of all the blush colored clothes, and the lavendar, serenity isvery pretty too.

  6. Found you from the link up. I've never heard of the Perricone MD products, so I'll have to check into them. I've been using Origins Night A Mins this winter and it leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth & not dry!!

  10. Your tree looks absolutely beautiful! I was interested to read your opinions about the Perricone MD products - I have wondered about them. I use Creme de la Mer moisturising cream all year round but it's especially comforting in the winter. Thank you so much for sharing this post with us at the Hearth and Soul Hop.

  14. Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. I love your new haircut too. I think it makes you look more modern and younger. You should change your profile photo, passport photo and get a new driver's license. Just kidding. Great cut
