Polishing Up

The weather in the Midwest has been so weird lately, and my skin cannot decide what to do about it! For a month now, my lips have been peeling, I am red around my nose, and I have bruising all over my legs from scratching too hard - seriously!

Believe me, I am not telling you this to gross you out...no, no! I am telling you this because nobody is immune from the winter dry blues. There are a few things I have found that do help against dryness and will share them with you incase you are in need of some Winter relief:

  1. The Body Shop - Vitamin E Body Butter -  has literally saved my butt this Winter - and my legs, arms and core as well!
  2. Nivea's A Kiss of Shimmer Lip Care has just the right amount shimmer and shine, while providing SPF 10 to help in the prevention of further damage from the sun ( that is, if you are in the sun at all).
  3. Burt's Bee's Intense Hydration Eye Cream helps to make my eye's look less lackluster and more awake! I swear it takes away the puffiness in the Morning as well. 
  4. Sojourn's wonderful Leave-in Detangler softens the hair and seems to remove static!

Where I Went

I totally flat-lined on my blog! Dare I say - life got in my way? Here are a few photo's to give you a quick catch up on my life: 

A Kitchen Aid for Christmas has me baking like a champ - I've only really baked Banana and Lemon Breads so far, but I want to master those first and move to something a little more challenging. Good plan, right?..

...Ballou is going on 5, and I swear she just gets better and better with age - she has spent these cold months with John on the couch - I think it's her heaven...

...catching up with old friends is always a must...

...and book club finally resumed - we just finished Beach Music, by Patrick Conroy - it was an 800 page book and took a little longer than most to get through!

There - now you are up to date with my Winter thus far! Have a great weekend and Enjoy the moments.

Where is home to you? 

Is it in your house/living space, or is it a bit more vast - as in your Country? Is home where your loved ones are, or is it where you find solitude? Is it in a big city or a small town?

Is home an actual place, or is it a feeling?

It's a New Year

Hello 2013! I don't know about you, but I was ready to bid adieu to 2012... It was a year of great challenges and many sad moments - honestly, it felt as though a gray cloud was following the Entire World for a full year .
But the year is over and we have a fresh beginning again ! I have high hopes that 2013 will be a year of reconciliation. 

Cheers to 2013 - may it bring Health, Wealth and Happiness to all.
