Quoted on The Fashion Spot

I was quoted in The Fashion Spot's "Top 10 Bridal Beauty Dos and Don'ts."  Enjoy!


So since my last post, I learned that I was pregnant (about a week after that), was tired for a good year, and now my daughter will be seven months old in two days.  There's no need for me to tell you how much of a blogging slacker I've been because...well, you know.  But I'm here now, and that's what matters, so let's try not to live in the past, eh?  What I'm working on now is achieving balance, finding a good PK3 class for my now seven(ish) month old daughter, and trying to eventually make my great escape from the corporate world.  On most days I'm motivated by the very real vision of a freelance writing career and the spare time to chaperone field trips, be the Class Mom and bake cupcakes for elementary school holiday parties.  On some days I'm more distracted than motivated.  But my love for my baby, her future, and a better life for everyone sharing my mailing address make me pull up my big girl drawls (just before wedgie status) and put some of my dreams/fears on paper (or save them in a Word document for organization's sake), and then make moves on the list.  Making moves...

So I'm horrible, but in case you didn't know already...

Al and I were "featured" in the March 2011 issue of Conde Nast's Brides magazine.  I'm proud of our little picture, my heartfelt story, and gracing the pages of Vogue('s cousin). :-)

Product Testers

I saw an ad today to be a product tester for a line of natural products.  If people got paid for that (some do, I understand), I just might do that for a living.  Free lotion forever?  Me likey.  Sure this is a modest blog right now because I consistently suck (and inconsistently post), but will you five followers of this blog please go and tell those creative folks who are launching their own line of whatevers?  You will multiply, one day.  I love products.  Can you tell?

New Favorite Product (for the day): Be Natural Callus Eliminator

Two weeks ago, I had the worst pedicure of my life, I am certain of it. BUT...during my one moment of pedi delight (yes, only one) I discovered a new product. The man doing my pedicure put gloves on and rubbed a clear, gel-like substance on my feet, then put my tootsies in plastic for about four minutes. Well when he got to scrubbin' with the pumice stone, skin flaked off that I didn't know was there. I DEMANDED (I can do that) to see the bottle. They told me that it's sold at Sally's, but only in a small size. They also told me that it's only for professional use. PUAH! They musn't know to whom they direct their warning label! I don't condone unsafe use of cosmetics, but I AM the one who used professional grade bleach in high school (pretty much black hair to blond streaks) and Sally Hansen "waxed" at home (that's enough for its own post).  I have to say, once it's been on for a few minutes, it does smell like Nair (activated), so please use with caution.

So since next week is my birthday and I want the pros to pamper me then, I picked some up today and gave myself a pedi. Same thing, more crud than expected, effortlessly scrubbed away. Love it.

Praise the Lord...

I got that wack Photobook error off my page.  If you don't know someone who can hook your page design up, be plain Jane/Janelle until you find someone who can do it and not leave their mark all over your blog.  Photobook sucks!
