    Another Starlet DUI What the hell is wrong with these people? I mean its bad enough for anyone to have a DUI, but when you have millions and can hire a driver to pick your drunk high ass up as you stumble out of the clubs, you have even less of an excuse.

    Shear Genius

    Anyone else watch this? Its no Project Runway (thought it tries), but its still thouroughly enjoyable. I think Tabitha is awesome, I can totally imagine myself calling Evangeline on her insanity like she did. Sally Hershberger kind of scares me, she looks like she'd be a really mean lady to...

    Help Please - Cooking Advice for a Kitchen phobe

    So part of my new budget is predicated on my not eating out so much. However not only do I not know how to cook, but I have no interest in learning. I also have OCD, which has manifested itself in my being afraid of food, esp. if I perceive it to be old or contaminated (all food in a grocery...

    Japan won't officially apologize for WWII sex crimes

    Here is a link to the articles: I think this is very sad on their part. They will go as far as to admit that sex slavery occured, but they claim that it wasn't sanctioned by the...

    Does anyone else's counter do this?

    My counter sells out of stuff like lightning. However, they still keep their LE collections displays up, but just replace the sold out products with products from their permanent collection. For example, I walked into my Nordstrom's the other day, was excited when I saw they still had beauty...

    Tips on making more $$?

    I currently work for a non-profit and I love what I do - however, the low pay is seriously killing me, especially since I live in Ca where rents are sky-high, even in the not-so-great areas. I don't want to leave my job just yet (I have to stay at least a year, which will be in June), and...

    Wet n' Wild shadows

    I just think these are great! Especially the Egyptian Sand palette and Mojave Mauves. I just got the bigger ones, specifically Sand Castle. Wet n' Wild has definitely aways from being a teenager's first makeup.

    Pet Advice

    I live in an apartment where they don't allow cats or dogs. Do you think I can get away with having a bunny or a guinea pig? Does anyone have experience with these kinds of pets, and have any advice as to which would be less messy? I heard rabbits can be litter box trained, but I imagine it...

    MAC e/s Game!

    Because I'm bored, and because I think this may be more fun than asking, "What do you think goes with this eyeshadow" I'll start by posting an eye combination, and then the next person takes the last item I used to make up a new combination using MAC eye products (of either something they wear...

    Okay, so I am horrible at managing money, and need some advice on how to come up with a budget, and track my incoming and outgoing finances. If you have a personal budget, how do you keep track of it? What are the categories you use to organize it, the software you use to store it, etc? TIA

    Danse Hits

    Anyone else in love with Danse? I think the colors are really elegant and understated (you're probably thinking if understated is your thing, why do you like MAC?) My raves are for French Grey, Glissade (both of which I'm thinking of getting a backup for), Pastorale, Air de Bleu and Danse l/s...

    Favorite Foreign M/U Finds?

    Ever traveled out of your country and found some beauty products on your trip that were amazing? Or do you live in an area with a really high immigrant population so you have lots of "exotic" goodies carried alongside the mainstream ones in your local stores? I'm from LA, so there are a lot of...

    MAC rut

    What are some cosmetic lines that have fallen by the wayside since you've become a MAC addict? Yesterday I was at my mom's house for Thanksgiving, and because I used to live there up until about 6 months ago, I still have a lot of makeup in my bathroom, none of it MAC. This morning I used my...

    Work Trouble

    Basically when I asked my boss a few weeks ago regarding Thanksgiving vacation, she responded that we only get Thanksgiving day off, because we're going to be open to the public on Black Friday and Saturday. Fine. But last week our administrative assistant/secretary asked for time off, and not...
