You may recall that a couple of weeks ago I celebrated my 100th blog post with a giveaway, etc... Well...guess what I got as a gift to commemorate it?
I got my OWN "Mathematicus" pillow with a No.100 on it!!
My sweet, sweet friend, Karen, surprised me with this beautiful pillow (she knows the khaki linen with black is my fave!) and now I have one of the number pillows of my own -- and one with so much meaning, too!
But isn't that what we gal-friends do? We're always looking for ways to give each other little "happy's" as I call them. Little "no reason, just 'cause" gifts.
We gal-pal types must have a special gene or chromosome or something that we come with that insures we'll always want to talk, and share, and communicate (so different from our male counterparts, huh?)
On this note, I thought you might enjoy a super cute little clip of what surely must be that "special gene" just forming... look at this!

Is she adorable or what?? I would love to be a BFF with her when she grows up! What a little "communicator!"
Another thing we ladies like to do is share our beauty "secrets" and since my post yesterday when I mentioned that I'm strictly a "sunless tanning gal" now, I've had a few inquiries about which products I like to get that "glow".
So.... I'll dish...
DuWop Revolotion - this product used to come in light, medium & dark, but they now just have two levels - medium & dark. In my opinion, their medium is more like a "light" but, that's just me... It's a good quickie lotion to give you some color that is even somewhat opaque which means it really leaves your skin looking evened out color-wise - almost like "makeup" for your legs! Plus, it smells good, kind of like lavender/tangerine. A nice switch from the usual yucky smells of sunless tanners. BUT! This is not a true "tanner" and so that means it won't stay for days like others -- one shower and it's gone. No need for gloves or anything like that when applying this -- of course you definitely want to wash your hands well afterward but this doesn't have "staining power", so it's great for touch-ups and enhancement of a tan. If you are already dark or olive-toned...the "medium" can actually be a bit too light.
Fake Bake X-Treme Bronze - really good! And this one doesn't leave that typical lingering yucky smell - which is nice. I mix it with regular body lotion to think it out a bit and give me a little more "play time" when spreading it -- otherwise you have to be sort of quick. I also think this helps ensure against streaking and it makes the product go further, saving you money! ALWAYS USE RUBBER GLOVES WHEN APPLYING THIS! THEY SAY YOU CAN WASH YOUR HANDS AFTER APPLICATION, BUT DON'T EVEN TRY THAT -- YOU WILL HAVE STAINED - NOT TANNED -- HANDS AND THAT ISN'T PRETTY!)
Fake Bake bronzing powder - great stuff and can be used on your chest, etc... even on the tops of your feet in sandals if you're wearing pants and haven't had time to do the whole sunless tanning cream routine for a while.)
So there you have it -- from one girlfriend to all you others out there...
Happy talking - Happy "tanning"!
And, THANK YOU AGAIN, Karen!! I love my pillow!
