I've Discovered BH Cosmetics 28 Neutral Palette! And I Love It!

I purchased the BH Cosmetics 28 Neutral Palette, a couple of months ago for $12!

Only recently have I really started putting it to good use. After watching the online demo video a few times I decided to start experimenting with the eye shadows. Even though it's listed under the eye makeup category many of the colors can be used for concealing, blush and contouring.

I also wanted to recommend YouTube. If you do a search for BH Cosmetics you'll pull up several channels that have tutorials and reviews on the eye palettes.

I decided to use 2 colors for blush and contouring the cheeks!
You don't have to use a lot since the pigments are very rich!
Isn't it great when you find a product that has several uses at an affordable price?

Here's what I love about creates a point of reference for you.

Example: How long did this microwave oven last?!

So I headed to my blog and searched microwave oven and I discovered we purchased a new microwave in November 2005!

Now I need to decide what must have features we want in our new microwave, the price range and then hit the store.

Deaths Link to Neti Pot Users In Lousiana

I've been using a Neti Pot since this spring.

When used properly many people, including myself, have noticed less headaches and sinus congestion issues.

Recently, I read that there are been some deaths linked to some Neti Pot users. They died from Naegleria fowleri, the so-called brain-eating amoeba.

Here's a except from Yahoo Health article: A 51-year-old DeSoto Parish woman died after using tap water in a neti pot to irrigate her sinuses and became infected by the deadly amoeba, which entered the body through her nose. In June, a 20-year-old St. Bernard Parish man died under the same circumstances.

"If you are irrigating, flushing, or rinsing your sinuses, for example, by using a neti pot, use distilled, sterile or previously boiled water to make up the irrigation solution," said Louisiana State Epidemiologist, Dr. Raoult Ratard. "Tap water is safe for drinking, but not for irrigating your nose."

It's also recommended to rinse out the pot after every use and let air dry open.

Oh Christmas Tree! December 2011

I decided to reuse wrapping paper, newspaper and packing materials this year. A great way to save money and be green too!

Is There a Law and Order Christmas Marathon On?

It wouldn't be Christmas for L&O fans if there wasn't a marathon on somewhere!

I found one at WGN America, December 24, Saturday, starting at 11am to 6pm EST.

TNT will be showing the original, "Law & Order" at it's regular time, on Saturday and Sunday.

And last, Netflix offers Instant Watch full episodes of the "Law and Order" original and "Law and Order: Criminal Intent"

Merry Christmas!
