Wordless Wednesday

We had an ice storm last week that knocked out our power for a couple of days.  Despite the damage from the ice, the trees looked beautiful especially when the sun shone on them!

Wordless Wednesday

I visited Niagara Falls this past weekend for my brother's wedding.  It was the first time I was there and it was quite spectacular!  This is the view from the terrace of the hotel where my brother was married.

Key Lime Cheesecake

I love cheesecake!  This recipe calls for a baked flour mixture bottom with a layer of cheesecake filling, key lime and whipped topping.  It is the perfect dessert to bring to a potluck as it makes a large pan!

Ingredients & Directions:
Layer 1:
3/4 cup butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tbsp. white sugar

Mix ingredients together and press into a 9" x 13" pan.  Bake at 350F for about 8 minutes.  Cool.

Layer 2:
1 package of cream cheese (250g)
1/2 of a 1L container of whipped topping
1 cup icing sugar

Beat cream cheese and icing sugar.  Add whipped topping. Spread on cooled base.

Layer 3:
1 package of Key Lime Pie filling (I used Shirriff Key Lime Pie Filling, 212g)

Prepare according to package directions.  Let cool then spread on top of layer 2.

Layer 4:
Spread remaining whipped topping on top of dessert.

Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Skintimate Skin Therapy Shave Gel

This shave gel was a pleasure to use! It comes out of the can as an opaque pink gel and then turns into a white foam when it is rubbed in. Compared to other shave gels, I found this product much creamier, thicker and richer. 

This shave gel has many built in moisturizers including Moroccan Oil, Vitamin E, Olive Butter and Sunflower Seed Oil.  

I usually use soap for shaving and sometimes it can cause razor irritation. With this skin therapy shave gel, my razor glided right over my skin with no drag or irritation. My legs were left soft, smooth and perfectly moisturized. I didn't even feel a need to apply moisturizer to my legs. 

Overall, I really liked this shave gel and will continue to use it for my shaving needs.

I received this product free of charge for review purposes.
