Facebook Posts for Late June

I LOVE "Chanel Translucent 1" pressed powder. I use pressed powder in the compact instead of loose powder. Loose powder can be too drying and look chalky. I also use "Chanel Le Crayon Levres" lip pencil in "Nude" because it is a shade or... two darker than my natural lip color. I not only line my lips but fill in my entire lip area so when it wears off I don't have a hard line around my lips. I "set" it by dusting my lips with the powder. I use "Chanel Rouge Coco Hydrating Lip Colour" in whatever shade suits the time of day or season. These three items cost $108.00 without tax so they are an investment. I spent my younger years buying drug store brand make up and skin care but when I was in my 50's I decided that it was time to use better quality products on my skin. Chanel products last 18 months and because they contain a lot of pigment and high quality ingredients they stay on longer so you don't have to keep reapplying. I use other brands of lip products but nothing seems to last as long as my Chanel.

I use these products every day because they work so well. "Aveda Stress Fix" lotion and "Aveda Foot Relief" cream from "Joseph's Salon and Spa." "Joico Body Luxe Volumizing Elixir" for fine hair and "CHI Pliable Polish" from "Hair Trevilian." I put a pea size amount in the palm of my hand and rub my hands together to warm it up. Then I run my hands through my hair before I use hair spray to give my hair a more modern look.

Jeans with more than 1-2% Spandex will fit when you first put them on but will stretch out as you wear them. You may have to keep pulling them up every time you bend over or sit down. "Not Your Daughter's Jeans" have a lot of spandex in them and sometimes polyester and cotton. I have to keep pulling them up unless I wear a belt to keep them in place. My most comfortable jeans are 99% cotton an...d 1% spandex. They stretch just enough and hold their shape throughout the day. I seldom have to pull them up each time I bend over or sit down. Check the "Content" label in jeans before you buy them. If they have more than 2% spandex try on a size smaller than you usually wear. As they stretch out they will fit better instead of looking baggy a few hours later. If you like "old fashioned" blue jeans look for 100% cotton.

I attended a luncheon today for an organization that cares for troubled youth. I was surprised to see one of their board members in a short tan skort and sleeveless, low cut, floral top. When she introduced herself I was shocked. She sat there talking about her family's long history with the organization all the while pulling her top up by the shoulders. I could see her very bare legs under th...e table. I was distracted from what she was saying because she was kicking her foot and I thought her casual, slip on shoe would fall off. She was too old to be dressed like a teenager. She looked like she had left her drink on her patio to come to the luncheon. I don't think she represents this organization very well. Remember: "First impressions are lasting impressions."
