Featured post – B.B. cream vs. Tinted Moisturizer – “I complimented two different people on their makeup and they both all but whispered, ‘bb cream!’ So then I knew I had to try it.”
I think I feel a makeup experiment of my own coming on. I have to admit when I read this headline it drew me in because I had not one clue what B.B. cream was. I loved the pictures that went with the post. I did not see much difference in the two either. I am very picky about my makeup, and I do not go with any one brand for anything. I also only buy cosmetic products that can be purchased at any store like Wal-Mart, CVS or Walgreen’s. I once heard someone say they spend $50 just for their foundation! Unless it does a trick on me and my face like when superman goes into a phone booth and comes out looking like superman, I will not be spending that kind of money on any makeup! But this post says the price is good for the NARS, so I will check it out. – Darla Lindauer

Featured post – Confession: I Hate Thrifting. (But I’m Trying To Change My Ways) – “I think I owned a dress like this in high school. HEY! I think this was my dress in high school! Sigh. Needless to say, I left it there.”
Confession: I want to be a “Thrifter” but I can’t! OCD is a crazy thing. It forces me to be organized and sensible, which makes complete sense to shop at thrift stores, but the inability to handle chaos is too overwhelming and I choose department stores. But my desire to be thrifty got me to venture into one suggested to me by a friend. I took a deep breath and walked in. I touched nothing. I just simply walked around to see how it was organized. The children’s clothing was separated quite well by size and gender. I was impressed, and I bought some items for my girls. The adult clothing was too much. It really could have been there were just too much of it to be organized properly. Overall, I did not have a panic attack, and I did get some cute clothes. I will go back. The key is having time to really look. I would not say it smelled bad in there. I would suggest maybe finding a different store if you go into one that smells that badly. All businesses are as good as the owners and workers. One might not care about cleanliness, and the next make it a priority. I am lucky to have a mother who loves to go, so I do not really need to. - Darla Lindauer

Featured post – Putting potato chips on a sandwich – “When you crunch up your sandwich with some carefully inserted potato chips, you inject a spicy vial of Grade A Oomph.”
I had to start laughing when I read this. I am pretty sure they did not invent putting chips on a sandwich. I did! Any kind of chip will work in a pinch, but there is an art to this in my world. Depending on the kind of sandwich is what kind of chips you use. Hamburger goes best with BBQ or Jalapeno chips, Bologna goes great with Wavy Lays, and turkey goes well with any kind of Doritos. And, on all of them, the more the better! This is one of the two reasons I almost never buy a sandwich when I eat out. 1. It is no small task adding chips to my sandwich and eating with grace. It takes both hands to try and get it in my mouth and I am sure I resemble a prehistoric woman trying to eat. 2. I just can’t pay the prices given to a normal sandwich of two pieces of regular or fresh cooked bread, meat, cheese and some toppings. For the same price, I could feed my whole family a few meals. Hot sandwiches are different. Make it something I cannot whip up in a few minutes, and I might pay. Oh, and a great tip of mine to perfect the art of putting chips on a sandwich and not lose all the chips with the first bite: Squish down the bread in the middle and leave the crust tall, it acts as a guard wall to keep them in. You will still need two hands to eat though. – Darla Lindauer
