Hello. This is your roving reporter coming to you from her couch during a work day. I left at lunch time with a bad headache and nausea, and now I'm knitting and watching Bridget Jones movies.
And winding yarn.
Look what I got for my birthday from my parents:
It's one of those things I probably would never have bought for myself, but added to my wishlist because it would make a lovely gift and was more interesting than CDs and DVDs. Now the world waits with bated breath to see if I will ever use my nostepinne again.
In other news, I was re-introduced to Mary Kay this weekend. Remember going to "parties" where an over-dressed and made up woman gave you an endless array of facial care products (available for purchase only as a set, at least at first), and then told you how to apply the pre-chosen makeup colors using only Q-tips and cotton balls? Well, ok, not much has changed, but one very important-to-me thing has changed, and that is the endless array. The endless array still exists, but you have an option to use the "TimeWise" line which consists of a cleanser and a moisturizer. And that's it. Just two bottles. You also have to buy the foundation at the onset, but that's still fewer bottles than before. I'm not a five-bottles-twice-a-day kind of girl, but a two-bottle habit is right up my alley. Honestly, my face has never felt or looked so good. And I have rosacea. It's hard to make an improvement when that's working against you. She also convinced me to try the full-coverage foundation which really does help, and is hydrating, and doesn't look all cakey and nasty. I'm a convert. At least for now.
