NOTD ~ Revlon Teak Rose (my newest obsession)

Posted on: March 24, 2012

20120324-203648.jpgthis Revlon’s “Teak Rose” in lipstick and nail polish. My newest obsession!


I used to think that matching nail polish and lipstick was so old fashioned.. But, I guess when you are as old as I am, old fashioned is okay. I happen to like the look of matching nail polish with lipstick. I have googled the subject extensively, with not so much in the results department. But then there is Revlon. Does it get any more ‘old fashioned’ than Revlon?. Looking through my stash I found the Teak Rose combo I am wearing now and I found this little gem,

This little beauty is ‘Cherries in the Snow’. Gorgeous, to say the least, AND there is a matching polish just waiting for me to pick up at my local Shopko store. Since I have 9 more days of self imposed “no-buy nail polish” (for Lent), I will wait to match these 2 little cupcakes of cuteness together. I can hardly wait! The last time I was in Shopko, which was Thursday, there was only one of the polishes left. It was a struggle to leave it there and NOT buy it, but I did. I’m sure it will be there when I go to actually buy it. Oh, did I mention I hid it? Yes, I did. Hide it, that is. Where? I’m not sayin’ – just in case. For a split second I thought about shoplifting it, because that would not break my Lenten promise of not to ‘buy’ nail polish. Somehow though I thought that just might be pushing it!

(This picture makes me happy, so I included it. If you have to ask who that is, well then maybe you should be reading a different type of blog!
I must tell you all that I did buy a nail polish. I know, I know, but sometimes these great deals come along and you have to jump on them. I had an opportunity to purchase a CHANEL Jade Rose polish at a VLoG sale for a great price. The beautiful Lori, (YouTube name ll42863) had a sale on her channel. I also bought a blush and lipstick, all CHANEL. $80 for all 3 items and shipping. CHANEL polish is now $26, blush around $50-55 and lipsticks are from $24 and so you can see why I had to do it. Sometimes a girls gotta do, what a girls gotta do! I will definitely do a video when I receive and I’m sure a NOTD will be posted to honor the newest CHANEL polish to my little collection. Do you also want to see pictures of the other items? Just let me know. thanks everyone!

I have never had a bad experience shopping at Nordstrom nor HAUTELOOK. I HGHLY RECOMMEND BOTH STORES.

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
