I know a lot of you are into Pinterest and while I have an account myself, after about 3 times of trying to add images to my albums I was bored. I honestly just don't get it so please explain it to me. Is it basically a scrapbook of stolen images of things you like/want (just what we all need, more consumerism)? Or is it just inspirational and something to cure boredom? I saw stationery on there I liked but of course since it was Pinterest there wasn't any way of knowing where the hell the stationery was from! What is the point of that!? And it's not very creative...just ask any artist their opinion of Pinterest. But clearly people are loving it, but people love Facebook too and I really don't get that either.

A guy friend of mine recently announced (proudly, I might add) that he had finished a 450 page book. Given that reading isn't really his thing (well, not books anyway, more like box scores, graphs and stats) my curiosity was piqued. What could keep his attention for 450 pages?!! I had to read it.
So I did. And let me just say, it should be required reading for every 13 year old girl out there who doesn't wish to become a moron. I have known some pathetic, trashy, insecure nut jobs in my time, but the women described in this book take the cake. Tucker, the author, while being a complete jerk, is just taking full advantage of it . I'm sure a lot of women blame Tucker for the serious debauchery in this book but ladies... this one's all on you.

I've been a total slacker. I've been using this pink egg for the past year and haven't shared. I apologize. It's become so much a part of my regular beauty routine that I forgot it may not be a part of yours. The Beauty Blender, its official name, creates a flawless, airbrushed finish to any foundation. It also works with other liquid products like highlighter, concealer and cream blush. Just dampen and apply. What a good egg.

Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters
I'm pretty excited. There's a whole new breed of lip color hitting the market and they couldn't come soon enough. While I am so over gloss, I have, truth be told, been having an equally hard time with lipstick. I've been feeling a bit like Goldilocks... this one's too goopy, this one's too dry, this one's too shiny but these are JUST RIGHT. Part gloss, part balm, part lipstick. I'm melting.

I'm obsessed with more natural skincare products. While I tried to dabble in a bit of hydroquinone (you know, for THAT SPOT!) it just wasn't for me. But what is for me and what seems to be making the biggest improvement is SkinCeuticals' serum with phloretin, vitamin C and ferulic acid in a biodiverse formulation to divide and conquer sources of damage at every level. Phloretin CF, a broad-spectrum treatment, protects against not only free radicals, but the range of other reactive molecules known to cause damage and DNA mutations among the integral cell types. In addition, it corrects existing damage by stimulating the synthesis of essential proteins and fibers and accelerating cell turnover. The result - a strengthened support structure on the inside and a more youthful, firm, radiant appearance on the outside. To paraphrase, it protects your skin and corrects hyper pigmentation, uneven skin tone and dullness. Yippee!

I hate being pushed or "sold". That goes for fashion, cars, boys, friends, you name it. It feels like manipulation and in the end comes across as phony and just plain trying too hard. If you have to work that hard at it, sell it that strongly, it's probably not really there to begin with.

Oooooh I just love words as art especially when they impart a solid, do good message. Although, if they came out with "Be the Bad", I might like that just as much.

I can't help it. I'm still in love with the jumpsuit. It just doesn't get any easier than this for chic, easy, wickedly comfortable dressing up or down. Jump in.
