love love love

Love these three things —

I’m trying on a few new makeups. I’ve always loved L’Oréal and Clinique but I’ve gotta tell you I love this new blush and concealer by Cover Girl.

It’s all about the texture. So creamy and smooth and moist. Cover Girl and Olay recently teamed up for a gorgeous line of swirled cream products that I am loving! [But be sure to keep the lid on very tight. I’ve heard the biggest complaint is that it dries out quickly.]

Available in four shades these bold and creamy blushes apply so easily with just a swipe of the finger and blend in beautifully. I bought two colors, Royal Plum, because I always buy plum in Clinique’s blushes, and Rich Cinnamon.

[I’m remembering that day in December when two of my favorite people were trying stick concealer for the first time and slightly resembled Aborigine warriors at a tribal celebration.]

I put on my regular make up base [L’Oréal] and then lightly dab on the concealer under my baggy eyes with my ring finger [presumably because it’s the finger with the least strength and so it doesn’t pull the skin as much.] Then dab on the blush and blend it in. Voila!

The best I can do for almost sixty!

Also loving the Ghirardelli Intense Dark™ chocolates.

It’s the best medical news in ages. Studies in two prestigious scientific journals say dark chocolate — but not white chocolate or milk chocolate — is actually good for you. It needs to contain at least 70% cacao. Of course that doesn’t give anyone persmission to binge on the dark stuff. One square! If health is your excuse for eating chocolate, remember the word “moderate” as you nibble.

    That’s great – I’ll have to try it. I need as much help as I can get with these things! Man, I had read your post (annoying, I think) and then have checked back here several times with nothing new.. Now all of a sudden you are going crazy with posts! I read the other one that I commented on earlier today and didn’t realize on all the great stuff you had said before that. So… I missed the whole bracket post. Ya, I can totally see that you would like things straight. I use hyphens alot. Don’t really care if I or anyone else writes ‘correctly’ – I prefer to write like I talk… and hear you in your posts. Camille is right – everyone needs an Aunt Dorothy, or a cousin Dorothy! :) Love you

    Yah, I’m starting to wonder what’s up. Did you and Camille and Tracy have a conference call and decide to comment? I go for weeks without a word, and suddenly you three are reading AND leaving me little love notes! I got seven in one day! Sugar Diabetes! Thank you!

    PS: I’m also trying to keep myself out of the kitchen, thus the many posts today.
