Re: Are you a fan of column dressing?

Yes! Column dressing works particularly well for petite height (the tonal element) and the pop of color dissuades from being too boring. Continue Reading


Re: Trac phones

In Electronics Talk 1415138917.313

I'm really glad I got a Tracfone, cause I'm like you, don't use it that often. I got the triple minutes, too. I just ordered from the Tracfone website. One of these days I'll update the phone, but right now, it is serving my purposes. Continue Reading


Re: 50+ Women Do You Only Wear Brown And Gray Eyeshadows Now?

In Beauty Banter 1415138253.917

I'm just not into a whole lot of colors just now. I'm 61, and I like the shade of nondescript gray/taupe in the Incognito Dior palette. If I could find just the right flesh tone for me...I've been looking for it for awhile. Continue Reading

This may sound like a juvenile question, but is that Clarant Ponds considered more a moisturizer or a treatment cream? TY! Continue Reading


Re: Eye puffiness gone! A possible culprit???

In Beauty Banter 1414622107.273

It's interesting how the Dermawand stimulated your skin enough to help w/ the eye puffiness. That's what it sounds like to me, anyway. There really is something to facial lymph massage, and eye lymph massage. When I apply eye serum & cream, I always press it in (after having smoothed the other treatment things on). You can look up an eye lymph massage on youtube. Usually you start at the inner corners/over the brows and press towards the outer corners. I agree with you that the eye area needs continuous moisture to ward off lines & creases which can come from dryness. You could try a... Continue Reading


Re: Does this mean I now have dry skin?

In Beauty Banter 1414621389.66

Hard to tell. How old are you? Can you wash your face with just a mild something (or even just water!) and forego using anything at all for a day? night? And then feel your skin to see how it's doing. There may be other mitigating contributors -- age, like I inferred, diet (are you getting enough EFAs?) cleanser (like okiebug suggested) & other exfoliation, environment (where you live or your home heat/air quality)... When I adopted the vitamin C & AHAs in the a.m./retinol (the lowest strength) in the p.m. and changed my moisturizer to aloe vera + drops of oil, also thrown in is a dr... Continue Reading


Re: How to PART your HAIR for maximum attractiveness

In Beauty Banter 1414413313.91

I really like this demonstration of the different effects that a simple part can achieve. I wish they hadn't suggested "adds four years," "subtracts five years," but to let our own eyes decide what looks more attractive. I'm not sure, though, that this provides a once-size-fits all; if we can adopt those as general rules...because it all has to do with your face shape & other facial features, length of hair, etc. That particular model has a bit of a low/average forehead, and that also plays into where the part might look less flattering.

Re: Question for those who know about Vitamin C skincare products

In Beauty Banter 1414412886.607

I should think that other ingredients have also been compromised. One bad apple can spoil the whole bunch theory. A formula is usually designed to be synergistic. Continue Reading


Re: How Did I Amass So Many Skincare Products

In Beauty Banter 1414412662.58

There are some really interesting & beneficial skin ingredients out there. I just take my cue from how I grocery shop... When I look for vegetables to serve with a meal, I don't get them all, but may choose one or two we like and that pairs well with the meal. If you look up the nutrient content of vegetables, many vegetables share the same nutrients and provides the food we thrive on. Continue Reading


Re: Momma wants a fruitcake this year, here is the BEST recipe !!! Just love it.

In Kitchen & Food Talk 1414340603.033

On 10/26/2014 Ms X said: I love fruitcake! I haven't been able to find it in the stores. Maybe I can find a good place on-line to get one this year. My grandmother used to make it at Christmas, and it was great! She wasn't a great cook, but the fruitcake was good. Ms X, the last (and first) fruitcake I got was from Collin Street Bakery. It was very, very good! I am really happy for this recipe, though! Collin Street Continue Reading
