Updates, new products, and Christmas cheer.

Hello People,
It has been a while since I have posted.  Since You last heard from me I have moved (twice, because we stayed with my mom between moving to Colorado and moving into our house)  The whole moving process took a long time.  I have already settled into a routine with my new oncologist.  I have a whole month of treatment under my belt.  So far Parker Colorado is pretty decent.  This country living is an adjustment though.  Everything takes a lot more planning.  When you run to the store it takes half the day to drive to town and do the shopping and return.  You don't just run for a gallon of milk!  Other than making me a better planner, I am hoping this new life helps me to relax more.

It gives me plenty of time to search my favorite sites.  Such as

Here are a few of our favorite things:  Loop-De-Loop (midnight blue with iridescent sparkle), Cherry On Top (pink-red with rainbow sparkle), Golden Ticket (lamé gold),  Kaleidoscope (plum-purple with turquoise sparkle) and Candy Apple (ruby red with crimson glitter).
Carousel Gloss is Limited Edition and expected to last through the end of winter, so be sure to put it on your Christmas list! Retails at $17. Vegan & cruelty-free.

They are always coming up with new things.  Recently they came out with the candy eyed shadow primer.  This works great as a lip primer too!  But for the holidays they have created a new lip gloss.  The colors are fantastic.  Very whimsical and fun.  I can see myself using the orange and red or even accenting with the gold.  Heck, I might even use the purple.  Blue is a bit bright for me, but I know that there are some brave fashion forward people who read this blog, and for them blue is the bomb!  So, if you are looking for a great stocking stuffer, or a little gift for yourself, it is very affordable at $17 for the whole set!!

Here is a recipe for a drink that you can use for holiday toast.  It is called Christmas cheer.  But you could have it at Thanksgiving.  Remember, Don't drink and drive!

you could probably remove the alcohol and make  a virgin rendition of this drink.
Have a happy thanksgiving.
