Today is Sara's Blog Fling! My post today comes from Brandi. Be sure to check out Brandi's blog, and Sara's to find other bloggers who are flinging their blogs.
Here's Brandi's post:
I grew up in the country and I don't think my mother has ever had a manicure or a pedicure. I had to teach myself about girlie products including tampons, often learning things the hard way. There was the time that I waxed off and entire eyebrow. Then another time when I tried to straighten my hair... the chemicals burnt it and my hair started breaking off at the roots. I was left with some nice bald spots. Asking me about a beauty product is like asking a boy to pick out your prom dress.
I've had my moments. I'm partial to Coco Chanel Mademoiselle. My hair stays relatively trimmed. My eyebrows are mostly plucked and my day isn't right until I've showered and shaved. I have makeup preferences although I'm thinking if the economy gets any worse my choices will have to come from Target instead of Sephora. I still swear my Maybelline Great Lash mascara.
What do I treasure most, you ask? If stranded on a dessert island, what is the one thing I can't live without? Here it is...
This stuff is the most versatile and best thing I own. Even dirt poor, I think I would find a way to have it in my cabinet. It cures chapped lips in a heartbeat. It laughs at my scaly elbows and knees. I've used it on babies butts and as lip gloss in a pinch. I lather my hands at night in an effort to make that dry wrinkly 35-year old skin go away. I think it's working. When my kids had psoriasis on their scalps, this was applies. Their hair was greasy one day but the scales disappeared. I quite clearly and vehemently swear by it. Run out and get some. Wait! Maybe I should buy stock first.
Thanks, Brandi! Don't forget to head on over to her blog, and Sara's, too!
