I could write a book about this book. Did you know that the FDA does not regulate the marketing of cosmetics? This books dispels the myths about skin care, make-up and the industry's marketing schemes. BUT, it doesn't just give you the bad news. It is a wealth of knowledge even down to the specific brands and products from hundreds of cosmetic companies. It is laid out in an easy-to-read design, with a purchasing guide in the back.
If you are not willing to purchase the book on my word (which I totally understand), check it out from the local library. You (er, your face) will be amazed!

I received this magic little machine for Christmas. The Cocoa Latte machine makes all of my hot beverages a frothy delight. Here's what I love about it: I simply pour the milk and dry (or wet) chai mix in and turn it on. The same for hot chocolate. I can reheat coffee and add flavored creamer for a frothy afternoon thrill. In the past I have heated such beverages in the microwave, but it just doesn't stay warm. The Cocoa Latte keeps the liquid hot until I turn it off. For around $25 you, too, can enjoy (much better than $225 for a espresso/steamer machine!). Heather suggests looking at your local thrift store, too.
After listening to Christmas music 24/7 since the beginning of November, I was ready for a change. I found this little gem at the bookstore. It is a refreshing new take on some old songs with a few new ones thrown in the mix.
