Monday Beauty Poll

Monday, July 11th, 2011
By Glinda

81% of you chose Charlene Wittstock as the bride who did beauty better.  But I agree with most of the comments that Kate Moss looks a hell of a lot happier.  And, I agree with most commenters that I don’t really like Kate Moss, either.  But isn’t it interesting that a “normal” mortal beat out a world-class supermodel?

My apologies for lack of posting last week.  What with the holiday, out of town visitors, and then an unexpected influx of unwanted bodily fluids from my daughter, I found it a bit difficult to get into the routine of posting.  

Billing it as “The Final Act of Self-Expression” British cosmetics company Illamasqua has teamed up with a funeral services company to provide you with a makeover.  Uh, after you have passed away, that is.   I gather from the copy that it is only available in Britain, but still…

Tuesday Beauty Poll

Has it really been four days since I last wrote something?

Forgive me for being grateful for the break.

Because I love my polls, I’m doing one today, as most people had the day off work yesterday. 

When it comes to trying acupuncture for wrinkle reduction, 36% of you are all for it.  30% of you said a big “meh” and 21% might give it a whirl if they had a Groupon for it.  Only 10% of you are afraid of needles, which is less than I thought.  Personally, I would totally try it, but wouldn’t be expecting a whole lot on the wrinkle front. 

Today, I’m curious as to your thoughts on this weekend’s big weddings.
