New Do and Updated Pics


Every year on my birthday I try to go get a complete makeover and refresh my hair color, style and makeup.  This year I was a little behind.  My birthday was actually in August, however better late than never.  

Since I am changing my  picture on blogger and facebook, I thought I would show you the new me.  A little more frosting on the hair, and a lighter color, plus I definitely like a little more color on my face.  Just a nice tanned look with a tinted moisturizer.  So, as I turned 74, this is the new me.

(I love that pictures don't show all the wrinkles and crevices.)


At least once a year give yourself a treat and go for the works.  It makes you feel so good.

Ok, now onto the next year and turning 75.  That is going to be a biggy and I plan on celebrating for the whole year.

So do you pamper yourself every once in a while.

Hugs, Marty

  10. Belated Happy Birthday, Marty! Your new hair color and make up look great. I'm with you when it comes to adding a little more color as we get older. As Fernando Lamas...or was it Billy Crystal who said.."You look marvelous!"

  11. Hi Marty! Happy belated Birthday to you! I just have to comment, and this is true because I even asked my husband to come and look at your picture. He agreed with me, you do NOT look like you are 74. He said "some people just don't age like others do". Just thought you may want to hear that.

  14. Hi Marty,
    I love your new hair color. Yes, we must take care of ourselves first. On the last Wednesday of each month I have the works. Hair, eyebrows and wax~pedicure, manicure and massage. I love it. Since I will be 73 in June of 2014 and joyously living life I want a good quality of life in my later years. Travel and gardening are my lists of things to do...I need my health and a positive outlook on life. Well, I'll get off my soap box and carry on with my blissful day. Thanks so much for sharing your new look today.

  18. ♪♫ Happy 74th, Marty! ♪♫ Your skin looks great, and I love the hair & lip color. If you will, please tell what brand of tinted moisturizer you're using, and your lip color! I just redeemed some of my Sephora points for Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer, anxious to try it. Clinique has been my friend for years for daily moisturizer & lip color. I have never worn foundation (other than in performing), but I like the idea of protecting the skin. My motto is it's never too late (even though I have some serious freckling from sun exposure since childhood!). ~Rita

    1. I don't buy expensive unless I think it makes a huge difference, so I use two different tinted moisturizers. The darker one I use is Revlon Skinlights - SPF 15 Golden Light - The other one I like is Neutrogena Healthy Skin Glow Sheers - SPF 30 Med to Tan 40 My lipstick is from Sallys Beauty Supply It is Sally Girl #388366. It looks really orange in the tube, but since I have a little blue in my lips, it turns out to be a really nice peach color on me. Thanks for the gracious comments and hope this helps.

  72. Happy belated birthday! Your not getting older only better, such a pretty lady and I would not have guessed your age. No pampering here for me ...no time but I always make sure my hair and makeup are just so , my wardrobe consists of many paint tainted clothes but I love it. Remember age is just a number that follows you around but you don't have to let it catch you! Happy day Lisa@ Sweet Tea N' Salty Air
