I LOVE the red red lips with a beautiful, neutral color. Ladies, let those lips do the outfit talking!!
I am home for Thanksgiving and my birthday happens to fall on Monday! I arrived to some sweet offerings from my Momma. The freshwater pearls are hers….I just wan them. Badly!!
What should I put these pups on? Where do they belong? I think the leaf and acorns would fit nicely on a fall jacket.
As always, I am open to suggestions!
Whoa. Whoa. Whoa.
My mom volunteers at a Hospice shop and on their ‘free’ table she grabbed an unopened bottle of Argan Oil for me. Being a sucker for all things skin and hair related – I was over the moon when she passed it my way! Assuming I would use it for my hair as a hot treatment, I flipped the bottle over to read the instructions and BAM – ‘Pump three times and apple to clean, damp skin.’ So, pump I did.
I used it on my face and will never, ever look back!
Some Benefits from arganoilsociety.org:
Benefits of Argan Oil for Skin
Argan oil is a complex mixture of chemical compounds like fatty acids (80%), polyphenoles, antioxidants, carotenoids and other acids. Each of these components adds in a particular way to the inventory of uses of Argan oil. Some of the benefits of Argan oil for the health and treatment of the skin can be recognized as;
- Argan oil protects the skin against wrinkles appeared due to premature aging. It also helps reduce the appearance of crow’s feet (wrinkles under the eyes).
- It is a very good remedy for dry skin. It does freshen and soften the skill more readily than any other skin softness creams or oils do.
- Protein rich Argan oil is very good for the elasticity of skin. It strengthens the protein bonding structures in the skin which works to tighten the skin and make it look fresh.
- Argan oil is good for reducing skin irritation. It quickly heals the marks caused by scratching on skin.
- One of the most amazing facts about Argan oil is that along with dry skin it is equally good for oily skin. Sebum is an oily substance secreted by sebaceous glands which keeps the skin wet and protects against dryness, but its excess secretion is bad for the skin. Argan oil regulates the secretion of sebum and keeps it to a manageable level.
- Argan oil helps to prevent stretch marks on skin made by pregnancy.
- It gives strength to the weak and easily breakable nails. It also strengthens the delicate skin at the root of nails and makes it smooth.
- Argan oil is useful in the treatment of skin inflammatory diseases like Acne, Chickenpox and Psoriasis. Red dots or patches appear on the skin in these diseases.
- In Arthritic and Rheumatic conditions in which joints and tissues of the body are damaged, Argan oil greatly soothes and reduces the pain.
Check your skin type and if the shoe fits – DO IT.
The know-you’re-broke Gods were shining upon me this weekend. Hallelujah!! Amen! Sis and I hit the Dartmouth Value Village – hard. And I walked out with a few gems…literally.
PEOPLE. This is a hand beaded wool sweater with the most amazing neck, ever. EVER. It makes my new do pop and I love the ‘big fat necklace but actually beaded onto your sweater’ look. Don’t we all? Isn’t that really what we’re all really looking for? It had shoulder pads and just as I was exploring how invasive the seam ripping would be, I spotted the velcro. A thrifting miracle.
A close up.
Sweater Number 2: FRINGE.
I know I have been on a blogging hiatus but if any of my old readers are around you KNOW my eyes and arms are always open to fringe.
A sweet little piece of pottery.
And lastly, a puzzle…’cause I do those sometimes.
I did it! Feels cooler than a million dollars.
I’m a naughty girl with a bad habit, a bad habit for…nail biting. If you don’t get that reference, RUN, don’t walk to download Somerheights High. Super, super, super funny. Anyway, I have been painting my digits and have been bite free for WEEKS. Essie is da best it seems – only one that doesn’t chip on day two.
