Tom Ford Spanish Pink Lipstick Dupe

NewImage

 I’m a huge fan of nude lips with just a little bit of color, and I’m a peach, not a pink girl.  I love strong colors on everybody else, but on me they just look harsh, and everytime I apply a strong color, I immediately wipe it off and apply a nude tone, those deep shades just don’t work with my complexion.

The Mature Ladies of YouTube are loving Tom Ford’s Spanish Pink lipstick this season, but ouch, it’s pricey, $52 at Nordies…  It’s such a great color, a peachy, slightly pink natural lipstick, everything I love except for the price.  So I was on the hunt for a drugstore dupe and I found it!  Rimmels Notting Hill Nude!  And it’s under $10.  Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!!!!!!

It doesn’t have the fancy packaging, or the embossing that Spanish Pink has, but it’s a great dupe and the color is dead on.  I ordered it online, and I love it.

I also bought Revlon’s Apricot Fantasy #120, which is a pearlized lipstck, it’s similar as well, but a bit lighter and it’s so pretty, the apricot is softer than most peach lipsticks, it’s a winner for me as well.

And, I was watching LisaLisaD1 review lipliners on YouTube, she is really liking Revlon’s ColorStay Nude Liner - and since I’m a big fan of the ColorStay line so I bought it as well.  Another winner!  It’s dark enough that you get a nice outline, but it doesn’t say, “oh, you lined your lips."

So that’s it from Heavensville this Memorial Day weekend, just sharin’ the good stuff.

Good Seasons Italian Dressing, Revisiting an Old Friend...

NewImage

I grew up on Good Seasons Italian Dressing.  It was mother’s favorite, so we had it weekly.  Finely chopped lettuce, diced celery, onion and tomatoes, all tossed with Good Seasons Original Italian Dressing.

Fast forward to now, we have a favorite Italian restaurant, Angelo’s, we go there often and they immediately bring you their house salad, black olives, lettuce, onions and tomatoes, tossed with Italian dressing.  Oh, and a basket of warm garlic knot rolls, can’t forget those!  Anyway, I love their salad, and my buddy V and I decided that it tasted like Good Seasons.  

A few weeks ago when we were there, I asked them if I could buy a bottle of the dressing, and they poured a wine bottle full of it and gave it to me, which was very nice. Then the server proceeds to tell me that it’s just Good Seasons Italian Dressing!

I knew it, V and I were right!  No wonder it tasted so good!  And now that it’s salad season, some of you might like to revisit this great dressing as well.  Sure you could add some fresh herbs to it, chives, parsley, oregano, but I think it’s perfect just the way it is.  They have several varieties now, but I like the original Italian.

Fresh made salad dressing is always better than bottled I think, so pick up a cruet kit when you’re at the grocery, give it a try, I think you will enjoy it, too.  

It’s a good thing ~ Jan
