How are you doing today? I’ve been celebrating turning 65 with a SPLASH! As you will see with my Five Faves this week. There is a blush that gives you the perfect glow, subtly fragrant fall candles that make a great gift (like for yourself), a tasty sauce, and free advice from a wise older woman. Plus…we have Annie and Cindy’s FAVES, too.
1. Rosy Glow Blush by Dior
When our daughter, Alexandra, was getting ready for her wedding in Madrid, her friend Jane said, “Oh, you have to try my new blush!” We were a little alarmed as it’s such a bright color in the compact but it brightened her whole face for a fresh glowy effect.
Dior Backstage Rosy Glow has been sold out at Sephora but Alexandra managed to get some for me for my birthday…and I love it. It’s pricey but worth it. Wakes up my face but looks natural!
And speaking of my birthday…
2. Happy Birthday Yard Sign
This yard sign (similar) set a fun tone for my birthday party at my sister’s house!! Hey, look at that white light in the sky. Another type of sign. Perhaps that was my mom saying she’s happy and we should have a good time!
3. Fragrant Fall Candles
Sometimes scented candles can be overwhelming. But when shopping with my sister, Teresa at Bixby and Ball in San Diego, we found two really good soy candles.

Harvest Pumpkin: ” This candle is scented with ripe pumpkin and subtle herbal overtones.”
Wild Honey: “Golden honeycomb dripping with citrus notes, luscious black currant, and wild herbs.”
4. The Fresh Sauce That Makes Everything Better!
For my birthday party our son Thomas, grilled beef, lobster tails, and vegetables and served it with Fresh Herb Chimichurri Sauce.
After everyone left and my sister and I organized/donated Mom’s things, we had the chimichurri sauce mixed with mayonnaise as a dip for a steamed artichoke. And on another night we served it with a rotisserie chicken. It’s delicious!
