  1. Having grown up in Orange County, I gave myself permission to watch 'The Real Housewives of Orange County' for nostalgic curiosity. Somehow that show planted a seed in my brain, causing me to obsessively watch all the Real Housewife shows (Beverly Hills, Atlanta, New York, etc.). It's totally sick and I am totally ashamed to whole-heartedly love it.

    1. Oh I can't even to tell you how grateful I am that someone else shares my sordid secret Heather!!

      1. Love the Housewives of Orange County, NY & NJ, these shows suck you in ! I don't like the one from Atlanta, though. Then a co-worker mentioned The Jersey Shore which is a train wreck- you don't want to watch, but I do ! I am way too old for this show, maybe just relief that my sons, ages 19 & 23 aren't like these kids. We could be doing worse, right ??

  2. I am curious about the magnesium! I am in the same boat with my face! I may have to go check out Clinique! I have used several other things without any help! Argh!!!

    1. I have just read also Melissa, that combining the magnesium with a low dose calcium supplement works wonders too… so I'm going to give it a go and I will report back… as for the Clinique I can't recommend it highly enough, try the little tester sizes they offer first to see if it suits you, within a week I was glowing, make up went on and better than that, stayed on instead of sliding off and it might just be my imagination but I swear I'm less prune like and puffy too. Oh joy!

  3. You always make me larf, Alison! I hear you on the coelic's/celiac's thing – I actually had a rather different type of test (I had to supply a – ahem – stool sample that then went zipping its way off from Australia to a lab in the US) and found that I had gluten sensitivity, thankfully not full-blown coeliacs. Feel much, much better avoiding gluten wherever possible.
    Agree with you that skin simply must be sorted out now that we are, indeed, wrinkly old prunes (I'll be 40 in August, so I've earned the right to that phrase). After years of searching for a natural moisturizer that actually leaves my skin soft and not dry, I've stumbled upon the Burt's Bees Beeswax Moisturiser. (Well, it's nearly natural – it does contain 'fragrance'.) Am loving it, but need to be sparing in my application, or I look like a greasy-faced teenager by midday.
    My husband was given a Kindle as a gift recently, and I've been holding off, steadfastly refusing to reject 'the printed book'. But you make it sound so delicious! I daresay I shall give in very soon…
    No TV-show addictions to report, but I have been enjoying a hearty chuckle at the classic 'Arrested Development' series on DVD. If you haven't seen that show, you've gotta try it!

  5. I shake my head in dismayed wonderment at the O.C. Housewives, but I still manage to watch them. I watch while I'm checking email or blogs, but still…
    Magnesium works wonders for me. I really can't do without it.
    Funny about the Clinique–I used to do the three-step program when I was a teen!
    Oh, and Zinio looks really cool–thanks!

  6. Oh jeez, those OC Housewives! The scary (and very sad) thing is that there are many, MANY OC women that are truly like that here (Yup, I live in THE OC). Not too worry though, there's plenty of us regular gals here too! =D
