I heard that 1 billion people tuned in last night for the final season of Game of Thrones. I have not seen one entire episode. I tried watching it once, but it was too violent for me, although I did enjoy the gratuitous male nudity. 🙂
This was the only guy I noticed. Is it worth watching all the previous seasons?
Well hello every body! I’ve been MIA for months. I sit in front of a computer screen all day for my job, so my eyes are whacked out by the time I get home. My favorite store Ulta.com is having a 21 days of beauty sale currently going on.
Today, I decided to clean out my make up drawers, by that I mean my make up table that was piled high with any and everything make up. I tossed make up I’ve had for years. I currently have three monthly beauty box subscriptions, so I get over 15 new items every month. Why I was hanging on to eye shadow from the 1980’s is beyond me. I’m goofy that way. Man, did I ever toss a boatload of crap. Anywho, I found a freebie I had received from Ulta awhile back. It’s Ka Brow! Cream brow color . Full size is $24 for .1 ounce. I’ve been using eyebrow pencils for years. My eyebrows are blonde and non existent for the most part. I went yesterday to get two Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz pencils which were 50% off. I tried the Brow Wiz a few months back and thought it was my holy grail brow product. Not any more!
I have color 1, which is perfect for my light complexion. Check out me out below:
I look very ghost like if I don’t have color on my brows. I was just out running errands so my make up job isn’t too swift.
This photo is better, not too shabby for a 60 year old , huh??
As I’ve said in the past my selfie skills suck, oh well. Cripes, I hope my nose isn’t really that big. I swear I’m not an alcoholic.

Happy Sunday! First let me say I’m a big bargain shopper. I have found a lot of great products at Dollar Tree. On my last visit, I bought various teeth whitening products and candy. If you have ever been to a dollar store, they have really fresh candy, just saying.
I purchased Natural White 5 Minute Tooth Whitening System for a whopping dollar at my local Dollar Tree. I just saw the same item for sale on Amazon for $5.50. It comes with a duplex mouth tray and a tube of whitening gel that is .75 ounces. When I first showed it to my husband he was convinced it must have contained lead or something since I got it from the dollar store. Not only did it not contain lead, but it’s made in the United States.
This stuff works great! I’ve got quite a few crowns so I wouldn’t spend the money to have a professional bleaching done at the dentist’s office. Plus my dentist charges $300!
I would have to say I’ve lightened my teeth several shades. It works fine even with me having all of these crowns. If you are expecting paper white teeth, it’s not going to happen, besides on what planet does that look natural????
One thing about items purchased from Dollar Tree, if you see something you like, buy them all. Well, no try it first, then go back and buy all of them. Seriously, they usually only have items like this once. I snatched up about five of them on my last trip.
Oh, and don’t forget the candy!

Happy Easter! I have to laugh when I see studies for different skin care products that use really small groups. This eye cream by Philosophy was tested on a whopping 31 women. I was really excited to try this when I saw it advertised at Ulta.
It made some hefty promises, “after 12 days, 97% saw a creaseless eye area that looked ironed flat.” Um, hell to the no.
Next, “after one month crepiness reduced by 94%.” Double hell to the no! “After 1 week skin looks smoother and more youthful.” Liar lair pants on fire!
Here is more hype: “In 31 days hollowness reduced by 64%”. I wonder what kind of drugs these testers were using, and where can I get some.
This eye cream which is .5 ounces and cost $68USD is a complete and utter waste of money. I’ve been using it twice daily as directed for over a month and have not seen any improvement. I would have returned it, but when I bought it, I had returned some items so I spent $45 USD, which was $45 way too much for an eye cream that didn’t produce any results.
I’ve used Philosophy products in the past, and was happy with the results. Don’t waste your money on this.

Okay, I’m the first to admit that when I think of Gold Bond products, I think of body powder for sweaty dudes. As usual I had a $1.50 coupon for this product, so I thought what the heck. Gold Bond Neck & Chest Cream at Walmart for $9.97 USD. You get 2 ounces of product and I’ve been using it once a day for over three months. You are suppose to use it twice a day, but there isn’t an SPF, so I’m just using it at night.
Here’s the description of the product:
Gold Bond Ultimate Neck & Chest Firming Cream. There are 7 intensive moisturizes. It is body treatment cream. Visibly improves firmness & texture. The product is clinically tested, proven effective, fragrance free and dermatologist tested. Advanced hydration blend draws in moisture to improve texture.
- Neck & Chest Cream, Firming
- New. 7 intensive moisturizers. Body treatment cream. Visibly improves firmness & texture. Clinically tested. Proven effective. Fragrance free. Dermatologist tested. Physically different than other skin on your body, the delicate neck and chest area is one of the first to show signs of aging. As one of the most exposed areas of the body, the neck and chest are highly susceptible to damage caused by the environment and UV rays, making it age faster. Also, over time our skin naturally loses its youthful firmness and texture as lipids, collagen, and hyaluronic acid, a natural hydration component within skin, start to decline-aging its appearance. Firming Neck & Chest Cream is uniquely formulated with a blend of key ingredients to deliver intense, long-lasting hydration and improve the appearance of skin’s firmness, texture, and elasticity for more supple, youthful-looking skin. Get Visible Results: Immediately: 82% saw softer smoother skin; Day 1: 85% saw improvement in skin texture; 2 Weeks: 97% had visibly firmer, more taut skin; 6 Weeks: 88% had improvement in skin elasticity. Ultimate lotion. Ultimate skin. High-performance firming complex. Advance Hydration Blend: draws in moisture to improve texture. Salicylic Acid (BHA): exfoliates to help reveal a younger-looking complexion. Stress Response Proteins: boost skin’s moisture retention to improve smoothness. Clinically tested. Proven effective. Increases elasticity. Improves texture. Visibly firms. Boosts hydration. Exclusive formula. The makers of Gold Bond do not manufacture private label brands.
Since it’s winter here in Southeast Wisconsin, I’m covered up most of the time. I happened to notice when I wore a scoop neck top recently that my neck and upper chest looked pretty darn good. The reason I noticed was because I could tell where I stopped putting the cream on my chest. OMG! What a difference! The chest area I missed doesn’t look so hot and the rest, wow! This stuff is amazing! My neck is less crepey as well.
I’ve tried so many neck creams over the years, and spent a ton of money in the process. This cream is $5 an ounce. I hope like heck Gold Bond never stops making this great product.
Given I’m almost 60, I would say this makes quite a difference. My skin is much smoother and spot free.

I use to watch this show with my son when he was little. It’s a hoot!
