The Weekend Blogger: Bit of hauling
Saturday, June 28, 2008

The Weekend Blogger: Mixed bag
Sunday, June 22, 2008

A photo tour of Iran...the music is killer I suspect I have nothing cohesive to say, so have elected to use a bullet list. Skin. Finally used the last squeeze of Dr. Hauschka's Cleansing Cream. ... [more]
Just Notes: The Weekend Blogger
Saturday, May 24, 2008

Contemplating trying my hand at a regular feature, titled--surprise!--"The Weekend Blogger." But let's see if I can produce something intelligible on a weekly basis, in the first place. Shoes. I ... [more]
Beauty Notes: Skincare thoughts
Sunday, March 02, 2008

Science! Oh well, I broke down and bought Dr. Hauschka's Cleansing Milk today. My local health food store now carries this brand, thus negating the need to travel to Berkeley. I experienced a ... [more]
Beauty Notes: Day Two of Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Milk
Monday, February 04, 2008

Beauty Notes: What I've been into, lately #2
Friday, January 18, 2008

I think we need a label for this, somehow...a blend of favorite things and Jack Bauer and Tony Almeida at a Drive-Thru. Anyhow. Shall we commence? Ava Luxe Voyage earrings I'm not affiliated ... [more]
Beauty Notes: this 'n' that
Monday, September 24, 2007

I'm putting together which Montale perfumes to try. There are a lot of them; it would be expensive to try them all...and I don't actually want to try them all. I don't think it's necessary. I do ... [more]
Day Two of Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Cream
Thursday, September 20, 2007

Side note about biotin supplement
Monday, June 18, 2007

It seems to have made my arms smoother. I had some of those little bumps on them, I don't know if it was keratosis pilaris, but they're all but gone now. Taking my regular multi-vitamin didn't do ... [more]
Where to buy Anthelios?
Wednesday, June 13, 2007

So, I am getting more serious about sunscreen this year. The sun has gotten noticeably stronger around here. It's...a bemusing experience. Apparently it is not possible to just go to your local ... [more]
Price vs. value
Tuesday, March 27, 2007

A couple of recent incidents have made me reflect just beauty existence has become over the years. Just as beauty boards may be blamed for many an impulse purchase, as well as ... [more]
Favorite "budget" beauty products
Thursday, February 15, 2007

Call them "low end," "drugstore," "crap"--remember crap? no one calls it crap anymore. I even remember cr*p, as in "cr*p haul"...for those offended by the term "crap"! Anyhow, I've long espoused ... [more]
Latest sulfate-free shampoo venture; cheap beauty products in general
Wednesday, January 03, 2007

Thanks to our Carol, I have gotten into this product (drum roll): Okay, it doesn't look fancy...that little picture resembles exactly how it looks in real life. No colorful packaging, no celeb ... [more]
2006, the year in beauty, and plans for 2007
Monday, January 01, 2007

2006 was, oddly, a good year for me, beauty-wise. I would say that 2006 was quite possibly the first year I felt "settled"...confident, even...about makeup and beauty products in general. I could ... [more]
Beauty breakthroughs
Friday, November 17, 2006

Once in a while, there comes along a beauty product that actually does change your life. Most of them don't, of course, but some of them do. This has been on my mind for a while...because once ... [more]
Adult acne rambling...
Wednesday, November 15, 2006

I had a sort of a bad skin day a few days ago. (Though I have an Adult Acne Blog, I feel a little cross-posting can be a good thing.) What passed through my mind, was how awful it was for me ... [more]
