Happy Holidays! Veselé svátky, Sretni blagdani, Joyeuses fêtes, חג שמח,  Buone feste, Wesołych świąt, Boas festas, С праздником, Felices fiestas, God Helg, Selamat Hari Raya!

In honor of my followers and their lovely languages - if any of these are incorrect let me know.
Happy Holidays from me to all of you!

  I got this set recently  during a sale and I am promising myself to be more consistent about using it!   I have tried this brand in the past with no reaction from my fussy skin.

Dr. Dennis Gross Gorgeous 4 Ever

Full size Correction Eye Serum
Ferulic + Retinol Anti-aging Moisturizer
Bbrightening Solution
I am also going to be more rigorous about doing simple things like having lemon water every morning - I need to more persistent about my intake of Vit C for health & wrinkles!

 Another product I am promising to be more pro-active about is StriVectin TL.

This product is a moisturizer that intends to firm and smooth the skin -
I use it every where: face, neck, chest and arms.  The box gives a run down on what the improvements might be after 4 & 8 weeks. It can't hurt to give it a try.  Once again, it is on me to be consistent!

 My sweet GS is getting this:  I bought one years ago when he was 2 and since he is going to be a Junior Curator at the local museum, I think the young ones will think it's cool  - and he is!

The Christmas menu is in full force and my cheesy potato casserole is a requirement.

My cranberry medley is popular and I keep some hidden back for me - for later!

Super simple: whole cranberries, TBsp brown sugar, mandarin oranges, pecans, cinnamon, vanilla & a splash of orange liqueur if you like.  Let it meld overnight - it is great with chicken as well as turkey.

I think the day before Christmas eve is as busy as the big day!  I wanted to try a more soft pinkish lavender eye shadow with a darker crease so I am doing a trial run before-hand.  Where is a make up artist when you need one??!!!!!!!!!

My outfit needs to be comfy for a day of cooking & entertaining so I am going with something simple and certainly not binding!
There are sequins on the front - not too jazzy.  The top is from Ralph Lauren and the shoes I have had for several years but I never wear them outside -
 fancy "house" shoes as we call them in the South!
I am going with a simple silver omega & earrings which will pick up the sparkle from the top.

Thank you for spending time with me this year and sharing our love of beauty & fashion.
It is wonderful meeting new people and if we lived closer we could party!
I wish all of you a wonderful holiday season and blessed new year.  I look forward to the new year so we can spend time together again!
