Farmer’s Market Salad Greens
I love making salads for lunch and this time of year Kenter Canyon Farms, who sell at my local Farmer’s Market, feature their Winter Mix. It is so yummy and best of all triple washed and ready to go! I toss it with whatever I find at the market.
This week I got beefsteak tomatoes, pitted Medjool dates, tri-color carrots, Persian cucumbers, broccolini and berries (raspberries, blueberries and blackberries).
I toss my Winter Mix with peeled carrots, sliced cucumber, tomato, a couple stalks of cold steamed broccolini, two chopped dates and then sprinkle berries on top.
Dressing is ½ fresh squeezed lemon, 2 TBLS. olive oil, salt and pepper!
p.s. I always microwave my lemon for 20-30 seconds to get the most juice out of it.
Kevyn Aucoin eyelash curler
I’ve tried many eyelash curlers, and this is my current favorite for the last year. It lasts forever, stays tight and is really well made. I like to warm it up a bit, under hot water, dry and curl.
Even if I don’t wear eye makeup, I love how it opens my eyes.
I’ve also tried Kevyn Aucoin’s mascara and although I liked it and it really lengthens, I’m still a Maybelline diehard and always have one on hand. The only other mascara I’ve been enjoying is Cover Girl’s Clump Crusher Lash Blast. Have fun!
Alastin Sunscreen Tinted Moisturizer
I absolutely LOVE this product. I use it every day, it’s light, not greasy and doesn’t have that telltale sunscreen smell. Even though I don’t need sun protection at night, I use it if I’m going out. It’s truly my main makeup base. It leaves my skin looking dewy and has just the right amount of coverage. I always add a dab of cream rouge. NARS has a great one, that I used for years, but unfortunately, they’ve discontinued my favorite shade, Malibu. I have one left and then I guess I’ll have to switch. WHY DO THEY DO THAT?
I also love and have used for years, Neutrogena makeup remover towelettes, as part of my nighttime ritual. I follow it up with a nice hot, steamy towel and let my skin soak up the moisture, while I take a few moments to breathe!
Classic Magic Pant
I have to admit I’ve been ignoring my baby, the original Classic pants, the ones that started my whole journey, the ones that O Magazine dubbed “Magic.”
A few days ago, I was getting dressed for a day of meetings and slipped into my original “Magic” pants. They felt fantastic! I looked in the mirror and thought, wow, these are really great!
It made me emotional, remembering how it all started, all the research and development, how many samples I made and how I made all my friends try them on, and the first thing they’d say is,
“These are amazing. I love them!”
And how good that felt.
So, for the last week I’ve been living in them and loving them. Knowing, of course, I can still wear all my other favorite pants! But really, it was a wonderful reminder of how grateful I am to be on this amazing journey, that all started with the Classic “Magic” pant, that will always hold a special place in my heart.
Have a great holiday and a happy and healthy 2020!
