This fragrant rose climbs up onto our sun deck and is reaching for the sky.
Pruning judiciously and tying up those wayward limbs is on the list of things to do in The Humble Bungalow.
In the meantime I have plucked a few beauties and popped them in a jug which I have placed above the kitchen sink.
I can inhale the heady and intoxicating scent while doing dishes.
These peachy blooms were tight rosebuds when I cut them
a day later they are billowy and full.
This delicate shade of peach is one that I also like to wear on my lips.
Chanel lip gloss in Legende
adds a soft peachy shine
which I have been wearing for over a year now.
It's a wee bit quirky that I must have my lipstick or gloss
even if it is a simple lip balm.
I dislike the feeling of dry lips and often I will exfoliate with a toothbrush and scrub.
Dry flaky lips feel like barnacles to me.
You might think that I go through a lot of lipsticks.
I suppose I do.
Is the Hostess a lip-o-holic?
While grocery shopping I recently discovered a new gloss
it's probably been around for eons but it was new to me,
it was incredibly priced and without testers available
I brought two home to try.
They are very sheer with just a blush of colour
moisturizing and smooth
and on sale for $6 each
great for everyday wear around the house and garden.
I am pleased that shades work so I did not waste any money.
I'll be using the Chanel Gloss when I go out
and I'll be saving money thanks to Burt's Bees the rest of the time.
Do you use any "bargain basement" cosmetics or skin care items?
