  • I've used them in the past but it's not a magic bullet. Hangers will stretch any knit over time.  I store them folded on an armoire shelf and iron in the morning. Side vent: does NO ONE iron their clothes anymore? I get so disgusted with the ragam…
  • Love it. But I don't think a sample size will do it--I didn't learn to love it until I fully committed. Just trying it once or twice won't teach you how to use it properly. Use a lot: not as much as the bottle says but WAY more than you are inclined…
  • pixy_stix: It looks like bed head from the back. Like she's a bridesmaid that just rolled around with a groomsman in a closet.   This.   Too many styles happening all at once, messy but overdone at the same time.  Sorry.  And that's coming f…
  • What is the dress code? Business, business-casual, or casual. Or the worst--where every THINKS they dressing biz-caz but they are really straight-up casual. (PEOPLE! If you are wearing jeans everyday, there is NO "business" in your wardrobe!)I like …
  • These might be too casual for you, but I recently bought a pair if Keen Sienna maryjanes for my weekend, errand-running shoes and I love them. They will transition well into fall and are comfy without being bulky/heavy.(sorry can't link from iPad:ht…
  • My recommendation is to get the ProX to see If you like it in theory, then upgrade to Clarisonic later. I've been using the Mia for a few months now and my skin has never been WORSE. I never had the 'purge' a few weeks in that some people get, just …
  • I just checked my retractable eyeliners and they are Maybelline.
  • hesakeeper: Kore!: (also, it's voila, not "wa-laa!", in case you're using that in your IRL pitch) I was wondering if anyone else caught that too, lol      I avoided it because I was already harsh in my response...but it wa…
  • sugarbabyluv: NYDJ This.  They keep my babygut in check, if that's something you're interested in.
  • Also, is your hospital charging interest? Mine doesn't, and I have a ridiculously low monthly payment. I usually pay extra, but because the minimum it's so low, that's the first thing to Getty shaved off (the extra) when I have extra expenses (e.g.…
  • I wouldn't do it.  You can only defer once.  You aren't describing any sort of hardship, you're just looking for spending money (Christmas presents aren't something you 'have' to buy--whether on credit or with cash) and to pay off credit cards.  You…
  • torrey111: What if it were specifically for your kids?  That is, low fat, all-natural, vitamin dense, delicious muffins to have/supplement for breakfast, or for after-school-snacks for the kids, or in their lunch, or on the weekends? …
  • SJU1982: I'd crank the heat just a tad, and iron over a single layer of a white undershirt.  I've done that multiple times on shiny bridesmaid dresses.   This--don't iron directly on the dress (from either direction).  You want a barrier. 
  • Yeah, it actually was offered to me, or I never would have imagined they would do it. They set the payment amount, and I just agreed. When it ended, I called and asked them to extend it and was told ' yes, but this is the last time' I still have tha…
  • R.Wilsonny:  I tried negotiating with the card companies on my own, but they were really ridiculous to deal with. I think this might depend on your situation, too.  About 10 years ago I was able to work out an automatic draft payment pla…
  • MrsG2B83: without looking like a Jezebel.  I don't think that's going to happen--you are GORGEOUS in your siggy pic.  But I second tinted moisturizer as a good start--and most have sun protection.
  • I've been using Too Faced and it's just 'eh'. Strangely, I really like the e.l.f. eyelid primer, but not as a regular primer.  I would mix it with Bare Minerals eye shadow to make a cream shadow and it lasted FOREVER.
  • Also, a brightly colored cardigan would be cute if you pull the bow out on top of it. I know call centers are not suit-jacket types of places, but that would cover up the arm and add some color to an otherwise black and white outfit. 
  • I would say it was okay if it had two sleeves. But like that, you should probably wear a cardigan or jacket over it. if you get the job you would be able to judge whether it was okay for day to day wear, but I wouldn't risk it for an interview.
  • It could be a reaction to the chemical sunscreens in those products, not oil. The benzones in chemical sunscreens can cause allergic reactions (and they are less effective sun protection.)  Look for a mineral sunBLOCK.  Active ingredients to look f…
  • ohioloveyou: Hope this isn't a fashion no-no, but I wear mine year round. . How do you wear them in fall/winter? I'm having trouble thinking of anything other than navy trousers. They seem like they should be a classic but I just can't picture …
  • My go-to daily makeup is in an acrylic tray, like this: Everything else is in plastic boxes (technically pencil boxes) and in an out of the way drawer.  (one for eye shadow, one for eye liner, one for lipstick, one for lipgloss, one for blush, et…
  • Also, it will be full-on Fall weather by then.  Pack WARM clothes.  With the stores clearing out summer and starting to stock for fall, you should be in good shape if you do need to buy.
  • Granted its been 10+ years, but when I lived in England, the trends in Scotland were pretty much the same--and London and New York were similar, with a little more edge in the U.K. Have you checked out this: http://www.collegefashionista.co.uk/
  • Cognac pumps?
  • MrsRiker:   I just went 'shopping' in my mother's lipstick drawer.  Also, I realize this makes me sound like I'm 17 years old...but I love her free rejects!
  • RecoveringActor: I also bought a new lipstick (I know I need to lay off the lipstick)  Lancome Rouge in Love in "Lasting Kiss."  It's a light pinky nude.  You're telling me.  I just went 'shopping' in my mother's lipstick drawer.  Fou…
  • Sorry I can't link, but Victorias Secret has some for like $40. Also, the softest, coziest pajama pants I've ever had were Tommy Hilfiger. I'd bet they came as sets, too, if you google it? Not sure.
  • Aussie*s_Mom: I've been taking a scipt he gave me a couple of years ago for acne (that actually just expired 2m ago so I'm sure it's still good) and it hasn't been helping either.   Does your IVF doctor know you're self-medicating?  If you'…
  • TX-Bride: I have used Strivectin SD on older stretch marks, and I did see some improvement, This.  I was amazed by Strivectin on my belly.  I would agree that there is no lotion or potion that will PREVENT stretchmarks, but I'm a believer i…
