Top Ten Ego Buidlers

I have been doing nothing interesting lately.  I stayed home yesterday and today for the first time since I moved.  Going on the bus with two 3 month old babies doesn't sound ideal, so I have been taking it easy at home.   Today is only the kids' second day together, and they are already doing everything at the same time.  You would have laughed to see me try to feed them, burp them and change them all at the same time. 
My friend Lori has started a fun series of top tens that I thought I would participate in.  Today's top ten is on beauty products.  If you know anything about me, you know I don't wear makeup ever, except for weddings and interviews.  It'll be interesting to see what i pull out of my bag for this one...


< 1 >  Dove Antiperspirant:  Sensitive care, fragrance freeDeodorant, really?  Yes.  If you could see the way my pits break out with any other antiperspirant, you would understand.  David has been known to use this on occasion as well.  (Don't tell him I told you.)

< 2 >  Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion, SPF 15I don't know if it was the fact that I stopped wearing makeup, or that I started using this lotion, but I haven't had a breakout since.

< 3 >  Tom's Natural Anticavity Flouride toothpasteTastes funny, like real spearmint.  I have to watch David carefully with this or it'll be gone in a week.

< 4 >  Nature's Gate Colloidal Oatmeal LotionI found this at the co-op.  I have really dry skin, and this was the first lotion to ever my make skin quit flaking.  Plus, it smells like beer, which I also like.

< 5 >   Nature's Gate Biotin Strengthening ShampooI have have thin hair that, if left to it's own devices, will lay around on my head all day and do nothing.  This shampoo gives my hair a good kick in the rear and makes it do what I say.  Thank you, shampoo.

< 6 >   Melaluca,  Replenish Hydrating Fruit Mask:   This makes my face so soft and supple, and it smells like strawberries.  It doesn't taste like strawberries, though...

< 7 >  BeautiControl Microderm Eye-x-celI don't know if this actually works, but it makes me feel better about the future of my face.

< 8 >  Rimmel London, Trio Eye Shadow, 730 SpicesWhen I do, on rare occasion, wear makeup, I always wear this.  The colors are a little sweet and innocent, and a little sexy.  The pink on my brow bone is my version of the lip-plumper pouty-lip.  Does that make sense?

< 9 >  Banana Republic Alabaster eau de parfum
Does perfume count?  I'm getting desperate, so yes.  When I wear this I feel a good mix of sexy, professional, exotic and important.  I don't think David notices, though. 

< 10 >  Baby-Xantac: 
If it were not for this, Annora would never sleep.  And neither would I.


  1. I want to try the lotion and shampoo!!! My skin is sensitive too, so I can't just use whatever I want. Will try this. Glad you did the list~ fun! :)

  2. I'll have to try that deoderant. I get armpit breakouts too.
