Style Wednesday: Not Making This Up

 When shopping for makeup, your choices are usually pretty simple. Looking for lipstick, you might search for red or pink. Trying to find some cover up, you thumb around for a word that matches your skin tone, such as olive.

But in some cases, you might look up something like... oh I dunno... Orgasm Blush? Maybe a little Velvet Teddy lipstick?

And yes, these baudy names accompany real products!

Style Wednesdays: Organic Makeup?

 We all love to eat healthy, and if you don't... well, you at least know you should. Supermarkets and restaurants like Organic Planet, Wild Oats, and Aviva sell "whole" foods that are processed and refined as little as possible.

Whole Foods (the actual store) will be launching a new makeup line that utilizes crushed minerals and natural ingredients, rather then talcs, chemicals, and preservatives, ushering in a whole new line of natural cosmetics to market along with their natural food products.

While the price margin is high (these mineral based products will be selling from $15 - $37!), the quality is sure to be fantastic, and in the end, better for your skin.

The Biggest Shopping Day of the Year

*Happy Thanksgiving!* Hope you're all enjoying the break. I don't know about you, but I am stuffed. I know one great way to burn off all those pumpkin pie calories would be to wake up at 4 am and go sale shopping, on the biggest shopping day of the year, "Black Friday."
*I'm staying in bed,* but for those of you shoppers who do brave the cold weather, long lines, screaming, kicking, and name-calling...well, good luck. Maybe report back to the rest of us on the great deals you got and _(while you're at it)_ let me know if there _really_ is kicking, name-calling, biting, etc. There probably isn't...wait, don't tell me. If I knew I wasn't risking personal safety _(since I'm currently insurance-less)_ I would probably go shopping. And that would be a lose-lose situation for me. I'd lose sleep and you see, *I'm better off thinking I'd get trampled to death if I went to Walmart at 5 am*. people enjoy your unabashedly risky shopping habits...maybe you'd like to run with the bulls in Pamplona, or go sky-diving too. *_You, risk-takers, you._*
