Dior Marilyn ~ Happy Valentine’s Day

Posted on: February 14, 2014

Dior Marilyn was released Christmas 2012 along with 2 other colors. The bottles are unique, the colors are not. The formula is nice and the bottles are super cute, but with the small bottles comes a very small brush that was hard for me to hold. I like the brush from Dior, it is a wider, flat brush but not as wide as some. I think people who don’t care for the wide flat brushes say on Sally Hansen’ Complete Salon Manicure line, will like the Dior brushes.

This was given to me at Christmas from my beautiful daughter Jilly. She also gave me a Chanel lipstick that I love. I always have a hard time picking out lipsticks but she did perfect!
I decided to wear this red today for Valentine’s Day, I really wanted to wear a matte black because I am that cynical, but decided on this color. To tell the truth, I probably will change before the day is out. I think red is great for a special occasion like Jilly’s wedding. (I wore Dragon from CHANEL , a classic red.) Since Betty is my only Valentine for today I think I will be okay to change to a more every day friendly polish.

This is my Mom and Dad dancing at a party. I love this picture because of my Mom’s smile. That is how she looked at my Dad for over 60 years. They were the cutest Valentine’s ever.

Happy Valentine’s Day. 💅 As always, thanks for stopping by!

Wonderful pick for Valentine’s Day Judi. Marilyn is such a pretty shade – very classy and elegant too. Just removed Dragon to put on Malice, by the way. 😉

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
