It was an "investment piece" so I have never parted with it
but I must admit that it has not gotten out of the closet much...
until I rethought what I'd wear with it.
I found the scarf and thought that yellow would be a cheerful shade to pair with denim...
then I found a simple cotton U neck T ~ shirt
and it gave me a psychological boost.
Sure I'll still resort to my basic white tanks and Tees underneath the jacket
and I'll probably wrap this scarf around my neck to perk them up.
I remembered that lovely daughter made these earrings for me several birthdays ago
and they are perfect with the scarf, T~ shirt and jacket.
I love how girly I feel when I put on dangly ear ornamentation.
It's an instant shot of feminine charm.
I bought some new foundation garments
think loads of lace...
you'll need to use your imagination!
I've decided that images of these will remain modestly hidden.
Valisere European Romantic Emotion and Bali
bras and panties
in shades of white and ecru...
It was long overdue,
my favourite lingerie shop has closed it's doors
as the English Gal who owned it retired.
I picked up my birthday freebie from Sephora.
Nice that some companies will still give away something for free.
Happy Birthday Sugar
(lip treatment and gloss)
These are creamy and full of moisturizers.
Fresh is a familiar company name...
I was given the Fresh Brown Sugar Scrub a few Christmases ago and it has become a Hostess shower staple.
I love how fresh I feel after using the scrub.
It gets my circulation revved up and my skins feels amazing and soft after using it.
(just remember to wipe the tub out after using it or someone's going to slip!)
I have been feeling rather sniffly lately.
My doctor thinks that I have developed allergies...
seasonal air born pollens are the likely culprits.
Huge amount of empathy now for allergy sufferers...
really had no idea what a drag it would be to be sneezing and stuffed up round the clock.
My eyes have been puffy as a result
not a good look
so I had to take action.
de ~ puffing roller to the rescue.
So far it's working...
if you suffer from seasonal allergies what have you discovered that helps keep the symptoms at bay?
Please share your thoughts and ideas
I would love to hear what works for you as it may help me.
Donna asked for the lemon cake recipe
the one I served at the recent "Tea in the Afternoon"
I have photographed the card and it can be enlarged by clicking on it...
I hope you'll enjoy it!
I used a larger spring form pan than suggested
because the first time I made this recipe it took much longer to cook!
so be prepared to cook it longer if you use the 9 inch pan.
