oh my gosh!
let me begin with this selfie!
yes, it is a selfie of our daughter and “the grands”! i truly believe it is frame worthy. it was “snuggle time” before “nap time”. . . taken on wednesday . . . the very day all three kiddos took a nap! ( a rare occurrence ) Chrislyn was elated. nights have been sleepless due to stuffy noses and little bro’s first ear infection. as all mom’s know, sleep is a precious commodity.
in my previous post i spoke about what makes me feel beautiful on the inside. i also stated that i would share a few things that make me feel beautiful on the outside today.
i know . . . i could stop right now, as the image above makes every fiber of my being feel beautiful. i never thought i was pretty until i had children of my own. it was then i figured i was . . . at least “cute” because . . . my kiddos are beautiful! those “grands” knock my socks off!
i splurge when it comes to make up. my two favorite brands are Lancome and Christian Dior. i usually purchase color twice a year, February (around my birthday), and July. currently, i do not go out the front door without these three products on me.
with the SPF of 30 and light coverage, pour moi . . . this tinted moisturizer goes from work to work out to work in the garden. i love it because it’s a time saver! i would not have time to primp the house and blog before work if i had a layer upon layer of morning beauty regimen.
i have worn this mascara for over 30 years. my eyes are super sensitive. i have tried others without success.
a year ago, i tried this lipstick for a more natural look. it’s now my favorite for daytime.
i learned something nice when purchasing directly from the manufacturers. they offer lovely samples and sometimes a gift with purchase. if you purchase from Dior, indicate “a gift” . . . their gift boxes are amazing, and the way they fold the tissue is an experience in itself. ( i love attention to detail when gifting. )
when we were up at Whistler, the week before my birthday, i was unplugged with lot’s of down time. i wore my favorite three, read two and one half books and had time to take a “when i’m 64” selfie. almost the real deal . . . as my natural grey is on hiatus for a while.
have a wonderful weekend!
next friday there will be real french bread!
