You Can Never Have Too Many Lippies

or can you?

Would it change your answer if I told you this is just *part* of my collection?

I'm thinking of working my way through the collection by wearing a different lippie each day. In the process, I'd weed it out (because I have this insane habit of keeping things that don't work for me, just in case I might need them later), and post a review of what I wear each day.

What do you think?

I Never Thought I'd See This

Those of you who know where we live- can you believe what we saw on 36th Street yesterday?

This guy skiing down the road...... isn't that the craziest thing you've ever seen?????

Are You Rue-la-la-ing?

I've heard so much about Yummie Tummie and their midriff-smoothing tanks.... and today they have a boutique with half-price items on Rue La La - where Members get their most wanted designers at private sale prices. And if you sign up by December 24, they'll start you and I both off with a $10 Credit!

Yummie Tummie says their tanks contain secret minimizing panel shapes entire waistline from bust to hips, visibly taking off inches.


The Politician is going to kill me for having this pic.

Look at that face!

His class was playing a game where they passed the present to the next person every time the teacher read the word "the" and he had his heart set on getting the gift he brought! So when he had to pass it on.... he was so disappointed!

Right after this pic, we stepped out in the hall for an attitude adjustment and a good time was had by all. He ended up with a Skippy John Jones book and he loves it.

Product Rave: John Frieda Root Awakening Collection

Last May I posted about the new John Frieda Root Awakening collection that BzzAgent introduced me to and how much I was loving the Nourishing Moisture shampoo and conditioner.

It's now December and I am still using and loving the products and have re-purchased them a number of times! In addition to the Nourishing Moisture shampoo and conditioner, I also using the Health Boosting Detangling Spray on both my daughter and myself and absolutely love it.

If you are looking for some fabulous, reasonably-priced hair products (around $5 at Target) to try, I cannot recommend this enough. I did try one of the other formulas of this product line and did not care for them at all- so I suggest you stick with the Nourishing Moisture formula.

It looks like I've overbought, and you can benefit from my over-shopping!

Making My Way Through My Millions of Mascaras

I picked this up locally for retail price in Blackest Black.

First, it was sort of greyish. And I just did not like the ball applicator- I ended up with large clumps everywhere and had to go back with an eyelash comb and separate my lashes after using this mascara. I never have to do that!

I have to admit this ended up in the trash- I just couldn't get a good result from it and did not like it at all.

Have you tried it? Did you like it?

Makeup Rave: Clinique Even Better Makeup SPF15

Just wanted to give a shout-out and a rave for my new foundation find- Clinique Even Better Makeup SPF15.

I purchased mine for $24.50 at my local Dillard's during a GWP (of course!).

I was noticing that the mineral powder foundation I'd been using was settling in my fine lines and making me look a bit older than I liked. I realized that during the colder, dryer weather, I need a foundation that will give me natural-looking coverage, yet still cover some of the skin inperfections I am seeing as I age (almost 36 y'all!).

After hearing all of my requirements, the Clinique counter recommended Even Better in the shade Cream Whip for me and it's been a great match. I apply it with a damp foundation brush and I absolutely love it. Afterwards, I dust on some mineral finishing powder and I'm shine-free all day. I've been using this product for a few months and have yet to experience a break-out.

This is why I love the internet

I am sure you have heard me go on and on about Curious George and how much I've always loved him. I even did P's nursery in CG back in 2003, even before the new movie came out and the PBS show started and he became such a big deal again

Of course I broke down the door to Target to get George's new movie, A Very Monkey Christmas when it came out this year. We have watched it over and over and it's absolutely adorable and both kids love it.

Small problem, though. P started singing songs from the movie, but he was singing them all wrong and it was driving me batty! I tried to decipher the words myself, but was having a rough time and feeling like we were "kissing this guy."

George and I are friends on Facebook, so I left him a little note on his wall and asked for some lyrics. And lo and behold, George posted some lyrics for me (and so far 42 people like it!). And maybe the Man with the Yellow Hat did it, but hey, I've got my lyrics!

Note on Fridge at Work

Gossip Catch-Up

I've been a little out of the loop, but I just read that Jessica Simpson and Billy Corgan from the Smashing Pumpkins are a couple? What?

And also MTV has a new reality show called Jersey Shore about some guidos and guidoettes that is all the rage?

Is the world coming to an end?

Dear Target,


You've been teasing me for weeks with that empty spot on the shelf with a label on there, all ready for the product to go there.

And as much as I'm in Target, I was sure I'd see it. But no..... I swear, you haven't put any out yet.

Please, I am craving it so bad! (And no, the 2 liter bottle just won't do, I don't like 2 liter bottles of pop, I'm weird like that.)
