A Different Way to Enjoy Some Tea.

I love tea. Unfortunately, I cannot drink it as it is a migraine trigger for me.

jimmy_belasco.jpgAlmost better than tea, is a tea scent.  I have found a wonderful Raspberry Herbal Tea scent in a candle that takes care of my craving. It is a Jimmy Belasco Soy Candle, and it is divine!

Jimmy Belasco is the original founder of Ergo candles, and he now has his own candle line. I am quite impressed with the quality, scents, and long (clean) burn time.

I found this wonderful candle for $22 at a great web site,

The New MAC Girl!

A true beauty icon - Raquel Welch. In case you have not heard, Raquel has been named a Beauty Icon and has collaborated with MAC to bring you this years Beauty Icon collection.


Can you believe that this icon is 66 years old? AMAZING! And she has created this colour collection for an older woman. The colors are flattering, and in my opinion, fit for any woman wanting to look classy. And I want those lashes... if I could only figure out how to apply them!

The items are housed in beautiful tiger-print and glossy black cases. Beautiful.

My favorite items in the collection are:




Sultress Eyes - The colors in the quad are: Sultress, a dirty green-grey; Aria, a neutral mid-tone beige; Fake, a neutral pinky brown and Pure Energy, a frosty light pink.

A Benefit How-To!

Check out this cool little product from Benefit. It is called "10", to get your cheeks looking like a perfect "model 10".

The application technique is unique, and I am not totally sure if it would work without some effort. You know, sweeping the brush over the product with the same pressure, and things like that. And what if you wanted a little more bronzer and less highlighter?  You would have to use a few more brushes. But it does look like a nifty little product I would definitely give a try.

Here is the "How to":








UPDATE: I wrote this post before I actually tried this product, in which I just did. There is more of the bronzer than the highlighter in the box, and the application is really simple. I just use the brush included and swipe it evenly back and forth 2 or 3 times to get the right amount of product and sweep the brush onto my cheeks. It really is easy and a great way to get a perfectly balanced look. Kudos to Benefit for a unique product offering.
