Those of you keeping up with my beauty routines will be fascinated and awestruck by the fact that I finally broke out the box of Nice N Easy (or whatever brand was on sale recently) and refreshed my blonde(ish brown) locks tonight. It's something I've been meaning to do for about two weeks now. Sometimes it takes me a little while to work my way up to something that momentous. Now I'm good for about another four months (although it will probably be about six months before I get around to it again).
Now that THAT's done, I'll have to check my calendar to see when I might be able to fit in a good chin plucking. Those who know me in person will be forever grateful.
The week before quilt camp, I got to thinking about all the beauty products I may need to further enhance the happy and well rested look I'd be sporting upon my return, and that's when I picked up the hair color. At the same time, since I'd worn the colored stripe right off my old toothbrush, I figured it was time to get a new one of those too.
I don't know if you remember THIS post, but I had gone to the grocery store for toothpaste, and I was totally dumbfounded and confused by the wide and varied selection of products available. Why would anyone need this many different types of toothpaste? I remember the good old days when the only choice was whether to buy Colgate or Crest.
And that brings me to this. Have you shopped for a toothbrush lately? Here's what I found out: THERE ARE NO "NORMAL" TOOTHBRUSHES ANYMORE. The toothbrushes on the store shelves all seem to do more than just brush teeth. And the colors? Do I really want a neon green and purple toothbrush to jolt me awake each morning? Do I have a choice? This is what came home with me.
It really looked somewhat normal, except for the colors. At least the brush part looked like a brush part, right? But when I took it out of the package and tested it out in my mouth--OMG! It felt like I was brushing my teeth with a French tickler! There's nubby rubber stuff on the back that tickles the inside of my cheeks and the brush feels much larger than it looks!
I think the people in charge of our dental health have WAAAAAAY too much time on their hands. Maybe we should give them something more to do, like solving the world hunger problem. Or finding a cure for facial hair in women of a certain age.
Besides bemoaning the current state of beauty products, I wanted to announce the winner of the pumpkin bag giveaway. The number 13 seemed appropriate for a Halloween giveaway, and the 13th person to comment that they wanted to be entered was Sandy from Thimbleberries. Sandy is a local quilter who I don't see very often but who reads my blog all the time. She's entered many of my giveaways, and I understand she's always convinced she'll win, but she never does--until now! Congrats, Sandy! Email me your snail mail address, and I'll send it off to you!
Okay, now that THAT business has been taken care of, what beauty products most fascinate, puzzle, or mystify you? Oh, and before I forget, did you see they held the Snuggie fashion show this past week?
Yep, seriously. I guess the Christmas season is gearing up!
