  • About Me
    I like Dirty Martini's to go with my dirty blonde hair.
    I have one blue eye and one green eye with brown flecks. It's a killer conversation starter.
    I have fair skin with rosy cheeks and plenty of nose freckles I've collected through out my life...any takers?
    I have a warped sense of humor and a creative wit very few understand but love me anyway. It's part of my charm.
    I'm sure there's more cray cray to add but I'll just keep it short...like myself. I tower at a very impressive 5'1. Yeah, I know your jelly.
  • My Interests
    I currently have become OCD with Arts and Crafts. It's a phase and it too, shall pass. (though I'm secretly enjoying it)

    I adore cooking and baking. I taught myself with a little help from my friend called PBS. I loved and still love their afternoon cooking/baking segments. I blame my hippie parents for not getting cable. It was either that or SoulTrain. Though, I do have some mad dance skills...back to my adoration for cooking. I also almost forgot to mention-I grew up without a refrigerator and oven. So I guess the mere fact that we had a TV was an accomplishment for my flower bud parents. So when the time finally arrived for us to move into the 20th century I was beyond thrilled to cook and bake for all my friends and family.

    I'm a sucker for lip gloss and finding the next big thing. Though I'm usually disappointed but impressed with their marketing genius. Like I said: ''SUCKER"

    I love travel size anything.

    I have two amazing children. One is blonde with brown eyes and the other has to die for shiny black hair with green eyes. They both have 8 legs between them. They never talk back and they think I'm the smartest, most beautiful Mum they have ever met. Jake-a-Roo is 84 and my baby Jewel is 77. You do the math. I love them to pieces.

    I also will add travel, wine, and import beers. I don't think I can talk anymore about myself. I'm getting deja vu about my match.com date gone bad-real bad. (I'm kidding of coarse) the trunk wasn't that bad...I'm kidding!!

    Okay, one more-I love boating. If I'm not at work I'm boating. I'm teaching myself how to wake surf this summer 2011 regardless how many times I fall down or get bruised.
  • My Occupation
    I run a very successful ad agency along with the best development team a girl could ask for. I knew someday my creative marketing jingle for tuna would come in handy. I created my world. I live in it..and I love it. I take my dog to work with me and say ''Chow'' when the weather is nice. I also sleep on my office couch and eat fantastic China Star at midnight when deadlines need to be met. I missed a big chunk of 2004-06 when I was developing my company(s). It is now coming full circle by pure sweat,blood, and tears as my Mum would say!! I hung on when many failed and am truly blessed.

  • One Interesting Fact About Me
    I think I used that up in my "About Me" the two different eye colors are trippy. Even more so when you've been friends with someone for 15 plus years and over drinks they say: "You have two different eye colors"!!! To that I say, Cheers!!
  1. I'm hoping someone can answer some of my questions regarding dry shampoo! I love dry shampoo for its ability to make my fine hair have texture. I don't so much care about it cleaning up a dirty, oily, scalp since my scalp leans more on the side of dry. I wash my hair every 2-3 days. In between those days I use dry shampoo. At least up until my scalp has been going crazy. It's been drier than ever and not so much itchy but just dry. No flakes. Though, I started getting hairline pimples and a few on my scalp. Which for myself is odd. It's not my shampoo, conditioner, or styling products. I slowly tried each on their own to see if those may be the culprit. Nope! But when I tried my dry shampoo all the above problems returned?! I'm baffled as to what in the dry shampoo would cause these problems? I should mention it's the same dry shampoo I've been using for 1 year. So my questions??: 1. Has anyone else experienced a dry scalp, irritation, or hairline/scalp pimples from using a dry shampoo? 2. I have a dry scalp but love the texture and volume dry shampoo provides-should I be using an alternative product for those results? If so, any suggestions? 3. Powder or Spray? Is there a difference in results for hair type or scalp care? FYI I've been using Tresseme Dry Shampoo. Help! I need volume and texture in my hair!
  2. What did you not like? Not oily. Dry. Dry. Dry. I was thinking it was leaning more towards a water-silicone-based foundation. I see glycerin. I'm okay with that. It works well with my skin. The color selection is less than stellar. Actually it doesn't make sense? Ingredients: Water, Dimethicone, Cyclopentsiloxane, isotridecyl, isononanoate, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Polymethylsilses Quioxane, Candelilla Cera Wax, Peg-9 Polydimethylxiloxyethyl Dimethicone, Caprylyl Glycol, Disodium Stearoyl, Glutamate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Tocopherol, Propeylene Glycol, Disodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Tocopherol, Propylene Glycol, Aluminum Hydroxide, Citric Acid, Royal Jelly, Royal Jelly Extract, Chamomilla Recutita Extract/Matricaria Flower Extract
  3. Scratch the Maybelline...for now. Their lightest shade is still to dark for me. Plus the shade has way to strong of pink undertones for my likey. Maybe in summer my opinion will change. Though I'm still interested in the Tarte. Looks promising for light, tint, worn under powder?
  4. @MarisCrane that's good to know! Also a big thank you for your rec's regarding LPR Toleriane! I asked a while ago about a moisturizer for sensitive skin and you recommended this (LPR) line. I have been nothing but pleased and it's a sweet, sweet, victory for my skin. I've been currently using the Toleriane Ultra and it's A-a-a-mazing! My skin did a 360. Which has given me the incentive to step out of my comfort zone (if you will) in the terms of makeup. My skin barrier actually looks healthy again. No flakes, redness has decreased, and all in all in much better shape. Again, thank you so much. I would of never thought to look to this line as I was in the dark with what to choose. I was prior to this little gem using Avene. Avene and I did not get along. Though, it was marketed for sensitive skin. The majority of their products are formulated with mineral oil. Mineral oil in itself is fine...but not much in the way of healing. My skin turned red, warm, and was spotted with tiny, pimples. I have come to the conclusion it's not the mineral oil in itself but more so my skin felt smothered. So, anything underneath the (mineral oil) was just contributing to war on my face. The mineral oil was doing it's job of just protecting it-NOT healing it. So there's my rant. bla-bla-bla. I'm comfortable with my current cleanser and truly do not want to switch. If it ain't broke...However I do not want to blame a product for being less than stellar when it's not. If I'm not removing it properly (even the non-comdogenic of makeup products) it will cause problems. Like I said, I just want to have the correct info to proceed without reaction or false conclusions. I'm looking @ purchasing Tarte Tinted Moisturizer or Dream Smooth Mousse by Maybelline. I need a little something under my mineral makeup. My skin is healthy and I'd like to keep it that way. But I find even with moisturizers under my mineral makeup I get dried out. Which just magnifies tiny lines and makes me look older. Totally defeating the purpose of my makeup routine. Makeup is actually something that could be fun again for me....I haven't felt that way in many years. Sorry for the long rant-but your rec made me and my skin very,very, happy!
  5. Hoping I could get some feedback on these two products: Maybelline Dream SMOOTH Mousse (not the matte) Tarte Smooth Operator.
  6. I have always used mineral makeup and removal was quite simple. I use a gentle hydrating cleanser.(non-foaming) It worked well to remove my eye makeup as well. (not waterproof). I generally did a double cleanse to make sure all was removed. The cleanser also work well for my sensitive, dry, skin. So it got me wondering about my new foundation. It is silcone based. Most water-soluble cleansers don't remove silicone properly. Is that correct? I prefer silicone base as it seems to compliment my skins needs. Anyone have any advice or can give me direction? Oil-based? Water-based? Ugh. My head is spinning. Thanks in advance!
  7. BB creams!? I need to educated on this particular make-up product. I'm intrigued! This could be my new addition to my make-up routine. My concerns are for moisture without reaction. So I will have to do my homework on brands and ingredients! Thank you for info. Helps a lot. Thank you, thank you.
  8. I'm looking for a foundation that suits my skin needs in winter. I do have sensitive skin that reacts to most products ingredients. I wear Mineral Makeup Foundation and it works really, really, well...it however can be a bit drying when it's polar bear cold outside. My skin tends to dry, flake, and go a little haywire in the winter. Also to add to the mix I am skoosh acne-prone. Moisturizing my skin really helps! Keeps everything in check. However, I do like to jazz up my face when I go out. Where to start? I haven't worn a liquid tint/foundation in years. I would prefer a liquid foundation as I would set it with powder. Though a cream to powder would be fine as well. I have some pigment problems and past acne marks I would like to cover. Any suggestions I would be so grateful!
  9. I use La Roche Posay Toleriane Fluide(day) or the Ultra(night). Turned my sensitive, red, dry, itchy, skin around. Great stuff! If I'm not wearing makeup I use the Ultra in the morning and evening. Makeup I go for the Fluide. Light enough for me but yet moisturizes.
  10. Should I be concerned that there is 'no' preservative's listed in the ingredient formulation? ....or is fine without?
  11. Ha! My bad. Yes, I would like the one that does NOT eat away my face. That would defeat the purpose. Thanks for the info!
  12. Wow! It's been a long time since I've been on here! Hello Again! Hopefully someone can answer my question or suggest me the right direction. I've changed my moisturizer to adapt to winter. Dry air and cooler temps here are already wrecking havoc on my dry skin. I'm currently using La Roch Posay Toleriane Ultra and it's working really good! But I would like to add a Hydrochloric Acid serum into my routine. I did some research and came across a few good options that looked promising. However they added ingredients that seemed counter productive. Like alcohol and the obvious preservatives. I realize those are needed for shelf life. Then I came across this one http://cellbone.com/pureHA.htm . Has anyone heard of this company? Thoughts? Suggestions?
  13. Hello Minerals makes a Sunshine Bronzer/all over face color. The color is NOT orange @ all. Very,very, yellow with a slight shimmer. The color depicted on the website does not give it justice. I own this shade...and it is very yellow. http://hellominerals.com/hello-minerals-bronzer.html
  14. Ugh...me to(on soap and water routine). When I was in my mid-twenties my skin became "funky" as you say. You did mention your skin on that side was dry...? When (in my case) my skin gets dry anywhere not just on my face and I put lotion on I too, get those sandpaper like rash. I know they are not acne but more so a skin reaction or extreme sensitive skin. I recommend as well, you go to a derm. an get this skin woe sorted out. If anything it will give you peace of mind or else a definite answer.

    Lip Stains

    Jell-o powder. No really. Strawberry is my favorite.Cherry is a little to bright for me. Though it does make a very nice pink hair stripe. Again, really.
