I thought this cover was absolutely stunning.

Until I noticed she only has one leg.

Things I Don’t Do: The Vampire Facelift

Let me get this straight.

You shell out perfectly good money for a doctor to take some blood from your arm, separate the platelets, and then inject it into your face?


I suppose the argument could be made that it is better than injecting botulism cells into your face.

I’ll leave this one to other people.

Talk to me in twenty years, though.  I might change my mind.

Monday Beauty Poll

I am jealous of the 57% of you who can apply anything to their hair and not have it affect their skin.  I’ve never considered myself to have particularly sensitive skin, but maybe I’ve been fooling myself. 25% are in the same hit-and-miss state as myself, and 8% make sure they never go to bed with product in their hair.  If I had my druthers, I wouldn’t either, but life with a toddler never works out the way you want it to.

Today I’d like your opinion on Anne Hathaway’s recent appearance at the Kennedy Center Honors.

One in Three Bosses Should Change the Lighting

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

An informal study done in the UK found (what is up with me and the UK lately? I don’t know) that one in three bosses think that their female employees wear too much makeup, with bold, dark lips being the largest offender.

Listen, to me the biggest offender is fluorescent lighting.

There is simply no way to win.

If you don’t wear makeup, you run the risk of looking like you are recovering from a three day bender. And the flu.

If you do wear makeup, even a small amount of certain colors can look cartoonish, especially up close.

The best strategy is to go neutral, neutral, neutral.

Either that or work at a place that has natural lighting.

Whichever’s easier.
