Today I am doing a "favorites" post. It is only my personal preferences right now. I like
testing products that are recommended from others, and seeing if I too, would refer them to
others. I am not being reimbursed by anyone. I share only because I have found them to
be products that I now use and like.
First of all, after all the years of blogging, you know my love of sunsets. This amazing
picture was sent to me by my uncle recently, and I must say, it is now one of my favorite
sunset pictures, especially in my snowy, blustery, and bitter cold part of the world. This
picture makes me smile. I would love to be sitting on that beach with a hot mug of
This compact I have been using for the last half year and I really like it. It can be
purchased at your local drugstore. It is made by Physicians Formula. It is "Translucent
Pearl", mineral glow pearls, and it will last you for a long time. It was recommended
by makeup artists and works for all skin tones. The "translucent pearl" does not add
color, only a soft glow to the skin.
I take the small brush and dust a LIGHT amount on each cheek, on the top of the cheek
bone and a touch down the center of my nose. It adds just a touch of brightness.
Not glitter, just a sheer radiant glow.
This pot of Vaseline lip therapy in rosy lips, I now carry in my purse. I read
about it and it was mentioned that the shade of pink is flattering for all skin shades.
Not only that, it truly keeps my lips moistened, when the winter season is not
kind to them. The little brush makes it easy to apply, although I often use my
fingers too. Just a tiny pot of lip therapy that looks pretty too.
Talking about flattering shades of color, this Revlon Lip Butter in the shade of
"Peach Parfait" is now one of my favorite go to lip colors. A very pretty, light
shade that everyone can wear.
Another one of my favorite items right now, is this small engraved heart that my
granddaughter gave to me for Christmas. She chose it herself, at the school
gift shop, where they could shop for special people in their lives. It sits on my
kitchen counter and serves as a constant reminder to me, of the necessity of trusting
in God through all the circumstances of my daily life.
Those of you who know me well, know that I have a thing for pens, and only
certain types of pens. These Sharpie pens are some of my new favorites. I really
like the way they write.
One of the best products in my book, for soaking tired, sore, winter feet. A luxury
I give myself at least once a week:)
My husband gave these a heads up. If you like sweet and salty together, and if you want
to have a sweet something at the end of a meal sometimes, well, this may be for you.
At only 160 calories per bar, it tastes so good!
These refried beans are just so good! I spread them on soft taco
shells, then I add browned hamburger, shredded lettuce, chopped
tomatoes, shredded cheese, salsa, and a touch of sour cream. Then
I roll up each taco. I made these for my husband's birthday
dinner and we both had to work hard to limit our
taco intake:) One can lasts for many tacos.
Another favorite Christmas gift that sits on my counter, is this
adorable snowman ornament that our youngest
granddaughter made for me, with her mother's supervision.
It is her small hand dipped in paint and placed on a clear
ornament. Snowmen are painted on each finger.
Like me, I am sure you each value the meaningful,
homemade gifts from those who love us. I treasure
this glittered gift.
"Kindness is the only service that will stand
the storm of life and not wash out. It will wear well
and be remembered long after the prism of politeness
or the complexion of courtesy has faded away."
Not one of the above mentioned products will last
as long, or will ever substitute for acts of kindness.
Kindness shared makes everyone beautiful, whether their
skin glows or they have lip butter on their lips.
I close with one of my favorite verses;
"Kindness gives birth to kindness."
Thanks so much for stopping by.
