Taking Care of Myself

As I get older I have realized that it is important go take care of myself. That includes my skin, my hair & my body. I thought I would secrets (well not really secrets) but what I use & do!
My skin routine is the Clinique 3-step skin care system.  This includes Liquid Facial Soap, Clarifying Lotion 3 (for combination skin) & Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. At night I use Turnaround Overnight Revitalizing Moisturizer. I have tried other skin care products but I always come back to Clinique.  I have been doing this routine for about 2 weeks & I have seen a huge difference in my skin.



For my hair I use Biolage Sugar Shine products.  They were recommended to by my awesome hair dresser Jess.  I have been using this shampoo for a few months.  I don't think I will ever go regular store brand hair care again.
I have ordered some new foundation & powder from Clinique which should arrive today.  I will share my thoughts about them soon.

Great Supperbowl Snack

Last Sunday was the Super bowl!  Actually I didn't have a team in the game so I basically watch for the commercials (which BTW sucked big time).  I watch the half time show just because I wanted to see what Lady Gaga did.  I thought the halftime was pretty good.  This is coming from a girl who is not a big fan of Lady Gaga.

Anyway on to the food!!  I made Buffalo Chicken Dip.  YUMMO!!  Here is the Recipe I used:

3 cans Chicken, Drained (I normally don't like chicken but for this recipe it's the best)
2 (8 oz.) Packages of Cream Cheese
3/4 cups Buffalo Chicken Sauce (I used Frank's Red Hot)
1 cup Blue Cheese Dressing
About a Cup of crumbled Blue Cheese
About a Cup of Cheddar Cheese

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
2. Combine chicken, cream cheese, hot pepper sauce, 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, blue cheese dressing and crumbled blue cheese in a large bowl.
3. Transfer chicken mixture to a 9-inch baking dish and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons cheddar cheese & some crumbled blue cheese.
4. Bake until lightly browned, 15 to 20 minutes.

This is one of our favorite go to GameDay snacks.  

That's it for now,
