Our cheapie makeup post got MP'ed, y'all! This is a first for me. I'm all a-twitter with excitement!
Do you have some inexpensive makeup and skincare items that deserve a shout-out? I'm willing to drop some dollars on high-end stuff, but I also use plenty of drugstore brands that are awesome. A few things I highly recommend (I don't know the exact prices but I think these are pretty close):
Because I'm having one of "those" weekends and haven't bathed since Friday morning. I did manage to brush my teeth at some point yesterday, though.
A nerdy cardigan/sweater-jacket thing. And a goofy hat (I don't generally like hats). And yet Becks makes it work. Discuss.

1) You step in fresh cat barf. Not sure if that's worse than stale cat barf?
Gentlefolk of GT, please help me with a seriously urgent important matter of great significance!
I've worked in social services/advocacy for almost 30 years, in one way or another, starting with volunteering in college, then full-time, then part-time when my kids were younger, then full-time again. Most of this time I've been on the front lines working directly with clients. I've been politically,…
I'm sitting looking at it, running my hands lovingly all along the gorgeous compact, staring dreamily into all the booteeful colors.....
I read KM's post when it was on here but haven't really followed the whole thing since then - I'll confess that I more often read the light-hearted posts here since I deal with Serious Shit at work every day. So I'm not that up-to-date on how it blew up and all the controversy. But I wanted to say that, as a new…
First of all, many thanks to everyone who commented on my earlier post about snarking. I made many mistakes in the way I wrote it and it didn't spur the type of conversation I was hoping for. This is 100% on me because I forgot that y'all can only respond to what I actually WRITE, not what I THINK I'm writing. I'll…
So here's this thought I keep having, and I want your-all's input. Being a feminist, and being committed to the idea that we should judge people on what they offer and contribute rather than their appearance, I submit that it's perfectly OK to snark on Kim K's looks, weight, wardrobe, etc. Here's why: because that's…
PEOPLE. I just heard that horrible "Christmas Shoes" song. Does anyone else out there share my utter hatred of this putrid faux-sentimental steaming pile of poo? I don't think Jesus is gonna care what shoes I'm wearing when I expire!!! I just don't!!
YOU GUYS. Apparently I have the coveted PPs! I promise to use my powers for good. And I know y'all will let me know when I need to check myself. I wish I had something intelligent and deep to say, but for tonight I'll just leave you with this:
Hi, I'm the new girl. I've been lurking for a while (sorry, I hope that's not wrong) and you all seem like such a cool group. Like, a great balance of caring/empathy and snark/sarcasm.
