It’s been awhile since I wrote about a product I didn’t like. Unfortunately, this is not the kind of thing you can just take back to Sephora. Keeping with this week’s travel theme, this review is about my new luggage.

A Brush With Mesh


I didn’t have these for my trip because I just found out about them.
(But I wish I did.)

She Sells Sea Shellac At The Sea Shore

I finally tried a gel manicure! Well, it was Shellac, but I think they are all basically the same thing. However, Shellac is 3-free! No formaldehyde, toluene or DBP. It was sort of a last minute decision before my trip. I figured it would be a great time to torture a "tough" manicure and see what it could hold up to.

Sun Tan Lotion

Did you hear about this? I’ve been a fan of Jergens Natural Glow for years, among other gradual tanning lotions, but now they’ve added SPF! It's called Jergens Natural Glow & Protect. Now your “safe-tan” will be even safer!

Check Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself

One of the things I learned from my recent vacation I already knew, but kind of forgot. I don’t think I’ll ever forget again, because the point was made over and over and over. This is my true story of: Annoyance, Frustration, Anger, Surrender, Disbelief, and Mock-Hilarity.

Back & Better

I have returned! I apologize for dashing out like that, with no warning. My original plan was to have a bunch of posts lined up and scheduled to update the blog automatically while I was gone, but that just didn’t happen. As usual, I got super-busy the week I had to leave, with a bunch of unexpected work and business prospects I had to take care of. It seems to happen every time, and yet every time I am surprised. My joke all week was "My new business plan is to go on vacation every six months, so I'll always have new work coming in." I used that joke at least five times, but I was too busy to come up with anything new.

But I’m back now, and I have a lot of things to share with you! A few travel-related posts at first, and then on to other things. Spring arrived while I was gone, and I’m feeling energized. Luckily! Because I have a billion things to do. Windows open, music on, getting stuff done! I don't even mind not being on vacation anymore, though I do miss the little animal friends I was hanging out with on my trip.

More to come soon!

 I'm out of town this week ladybugs, but I'll be back in blogness next week!

Planty Of Serum In The Sea?

I have been using Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Serum for a few months. I used up the entire bottle. About a month ago, as I noticed the bottle getting less full, I thought I would write a post about how this serum made no improvement in my fine lines. Only now that I’m all the way through, it MIGHT have. Because now when I look for those fine lines to prove the serum didn’t work, they seem a little softer. Hmm. I’m in the same light and everything.

Goody Goody

I’ve been on the lookout for these Goody Doublewear Ponytail Holder/Bracelets since before Christmas (I mean: “The Holidays.”) Finally, I thought to look online, and found them easily at I would have rather had the gold ones, but they only had silver in the ponytail size. They had a gold/silver combo pack in the headband size, and I didn’t even know there WAS a headband size! Anyway, silver ponytailers. They’re good!

Shreduary Finale: The Final Shredtch!

I did it! Thirty consecutive days of working out, except for those four days that I missed. That’s not half bad though!
