Re: Tis the Season- Holiday (Christmas) Sweaters

In Fashion Talk 1414520827.583

Thanks for the reminder! I get North Style catalog and have been trying to decide which one to order. Guess I'd better hurry up. I always have at least 3 Christmas sweaters to wear during December. I really don't care what others think - I wear them for ME! Continue Reading


Re: Need to transition from tailored work wardrobe to retired casual....................

In Fashion Talk 1414420300.05

This was a no-brainer for me. Like others said, what I normally wore on weekends became my daily uniform = jeans and t-shirts, adding jackets/sweaters in cold weather. I donated all my dress suits, blouses, and high heels within a month after my retirement date. The transition was super simple. Continue Reading


Re: What is the one gift you would like to receive for Christmas? ==OT

In Beauty Banter 1414418931.043

Every year, instead of buying gifts for each other, I want members of my family to all donate to a charity the same amount that they would spend on gifts. Hubby and I don't really need anything, and if there's something we want, we can buy it for ourselves. But our family doesn't want to do this; they all prefer to buy individual gifts -- sheesh! To me, the holidays are a time to get together, enjoy good food, conversation, and each other. Give to charities and people who otherwise won't receive gifts. To answer your question, I don't want much of anything. And I hate gift cards -- it'... Continue Reading


Re: O/T ~ Anyone Gift Omaha or Kansas City Steaks?

In Beauty Banter 1414417673.967

I've never eaten Kansas City mail order steaks (but eat a whole lotta steaks in K.C.!) so can't comment on them. But have received Omaha Steaks as gifts several times and we just toss them in the trash. Omaha Steaks are pumped full of preservatives and are packed in dry ice for who knows how long.... they are inedible in our opinion. Don't waste your money. Continue Reading


Re: Eyeliner Color

In Beauty Banter 1414337038.443

Eye liner pencil junkie here! Fair, blue eyes, light blonde/gray streaked hair - I've worn every color eyeliner known to man. Dark green pencils are the absolute best on me, but navy and charcoal are also flattering. Any purples, browns, or shades of burgundy make me look like I've been crying, and blacks are just too dark on me. Continue Reading


Re: Horrible surprise when I removed the softener cup in my washer...

In For the Home Talk 1413730245.427

Interesting thread. I also quit using fabric softener - the softener dispenser in my front loader got mold/mildew on it constantly and I got tired of cleaning it. My question is: Vinegar has a strong smell - do your clean clothes smell like vinegar? Continue Reading


Re: Quality brushes That are Affordable? anyone?

In Beauty Banter 1413554228.68

Several ladies here have recommended the e.l.f. brushes -- I bought one and the bristles started falling out the first time I used it. Tossed it within a month. I fell in love with the IT brushes - especially the black double-ended one! They are so packed with zillions of soft bristles, nothing compares to IT brushes in my opinion. I got the first one in a kit and collected the rest (and many duplicates) from ebay. I kind of hoard IT brushes now. Continue Reading


Re: TGIF Beauties! What Did You Use Up This Week 10/17?

In Beauty Banter 1413553201.743

Good morning and T. G. I. F. - this week I used up................... Clinique DDMG -- replaced with Oil of Olay pink. Haven't used OOO in years and thought I'd give it a go. Love the smell and feel of it. Skinn Stem Regen -- Glad it's gone. I wasn't willing to give up my usual products and I could never quite figure out how to include it in my daily routine. I doubt that I'll re-order, but ya never know. Skinn Wow! Mascara -- This mascara made my lashes so full and dark, a friend told me she could see them from across the room. However, after a few hours, it would flake on me. I tosse... Continue Reading


Re: WHO'S READY FOR SOME SKINN??????????????????????

In Beauty Banter 1413551952.74

SeaGal ~ Thanks for your response. I prefer not to use a "treatment" on top of my Retinol cream. If I layer anything on top of Retinol, it's just a plain moisturizer. I don't think Dimitri makes anything "plain." The Stem Regen is thinner than my Retinol so it doesn't make sense to me to layer it on top. His first show is at 9 a.m. here. Yay! I am interested in that eye balm - but it will probably come in a kit with products I don't want or need. Drats! But I always want to see what new things he has. Desertdi - have you got your chicken cooked and ready? Continue Reading


Re: I want a crisp, white, oxford blouse

In Fashion Talk 1413469645.41

Coldwater Creek used to be my "go-to" for crisp white no-iron blouses. Since CC closed, I've been buying no-irons at our Ralph Lauren outlet store. I recently bought 2 more white ones because you can't have too many crisp white shirts that you can pop the collar!! The Polo/Ralph Lauren outlet is also online, if anyone's interested. You can also sign up for emailed coupons to use online or in stores. Thanks for the info on bluing -- but can I use bluing in a front-load washing machine? I'll check at my supermarket. Thanks again!
