I am wiggin out!! It's the beginning of my favortie time of the year - Halloween has come and gone. Which means it is practically New Years already!!! Don't blink cause Thanksgiving is here and the big one will be nothing but scraps of ribbon and pretty paper before we know it. That is why I call this my WIGGIN OUT time...I am a nonstop decorating fool from the last day in September (Halloween goes up) til sometime in February, I've been known to throw a couples Cupid party and that is a whole other blog. I've already warned my houseboys (Wonderman and Gman) that I would truly appreciate their muscles this afternoon bringing down the Christmas Sparkly Crap. All of it. Got to get it up and ready due to a few little trips this month. Since we hit the Thanksgiving Jackpot (someone else will be slaving over this meal - can't wait!!) I can go ahead and get the inside all ready for Santa. I will hold off on outside of house to keep the homeowners association happy. That will all go up last day of November.
Back to Halloween - my personal fav holiday - and wigging out. Here is another shameless shout out to WENDY WILLIAMS - love you and love your show!!! If I have to be anywhere before noon I just have to leave the tv off cause her show is so fun to watch I can't stop and then I'm late for anything before 1:00. I am the master of piddling away the time in the morning. Anyway, I love WW and all her fabulous wigs. So for Halloween this year my costume came second to the wig I wanted to wear. Had my heart fixed on a Sookie wig (Have never ever watched that show and don't plan to cause I am already addicted to enough car wreck tv - you know you shouldn't look but you can't help it and once you look/watch it you can't stop) but all the good ones where gone so I had to make do with a Amy Whinehouse wig. Now every year I go all crazy with the Halloween decorations inside and outside. I know I have a problem but it isn't hurting anyone and my family secretly loves me for it. This year I made sure we got a Halloween Costume Party on the calendar. Want to every year and before I can send out evites it is freakin Christmas. So we had a Paparazzi Celebrity Costume Party - come as your favorite celebrity...person or character. They could be sports, tv or movies or just someone in the news. Lots of possibilities and something for everyone. The crazies like me that love a good laugh and costume and the shy ones that prefer to just come laugh at everyone else all dressed up. Told them not to worry they could show up dressed normal and we would call them contestants on Wife Swap.
Back to wigs...Snooki was obviously going to be a big costume this year so I decided it would be more fun and age appropriate for me to dress up as Snooki's mother and of course Wonderman would be Snooki's dad...he got to wear a great Situation costume with a wig like Pauly (the other boy duffus on the the show). As the Dad he can mix it up...we had so much fun and we had two Snookies and several Situations in the house. The scene stealers were Amy Winehouse and Slash,Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne,Hannah Montana and Billy Ray, and Kat and Jesse James. Talk about great wigs!!! Who knew they could be so much fun!! Wendy Williams that's who. And Raquel Welch and most of the men on soap operas!! Trust me the boys are not all genetically blessed with amazing hair over 35...they are rocking some man hair wigs. And why not? Not fair for us to get the special effects tricks of make up AND great hair all to ourselves. So on that note it is time for me to stop rambling and get to the Good Stuff!!! Here are my latest and greatest favorite things that I wish I could give you like Oprah and Wendy do. One day when I am rich and famous I will make that my life mission...while others are feeding the hungry, adopting all the orphan children, and saving our canine friends - I'll be giving away all my fav good stuff!!! Spread the word about a great mascara and the world will be better for all.
Been awhile and I'm overloaded with stuff to share...will keep it to face stuff today:
My biggest problems are age spots and patchy dry skin that will not stop peeling. After weeks of trying lots of moisturizers I finally scheduled a derm appt. for next week. Which I don't even need now due to the brilliant idea I had to try an old faithful standby...
Pond's Dry Skin Cream. I love the cucumber cleansing cream and accidentally bought the dry skin cream by mistake one day. Noticed it in the cabinet sitting unused and thought worth a try. Dry patchy skin is GONE....then I started using it on my neck and dry crepe wrinkly skin looks instantly better!!! I am going to start buying this stuff by the vat. Will post if I find it supersized somewhere - good news is it is cheap anyway.
The other miracle product is Clinique Even Better Dark Spot Corrector. I would love to get a fancy laser treatment but since I am chicken and cheap that prolly won't be happening. Next best thing with no pain and a lot better price is waiting for you at the Clinique counter and it made a huge difference in just two weeks. I really couldn't believe it.
I also love Clinique's new Redness Solutions makeup. There is a great little sample of it in the latest magazines. I just dot it on where needed to cover any redness, veins and my much lighter age spots.
I am also a big fan of Revlon's Age Defying Face Illuminator. I use the Bare Light shade to just give a subtle glow and it really does make your pores disappear. It is great around eyes too to help concealer cover dark circles.
Now my next fav thing caught my eye one day and after I stopped laughing at the ridiculous claims on the packaging I decided to buy it and try it and then return it. No way it could work. It is Physicians Formula CoverToxTen Wrinkle Therapy Face Powder. Stop laughing and listen. Yes, it actually claims to reduce over 50% visible wrinkles in 10 MINUTES all the way up to 90% visibly smoother skin in JUST 10 DAYS!! After you stop snickering run as fast as you can to CVS drugstore and snatch it up. Once this secret stuff gets out it will fly off the shelves. I was shocked and knew I had hit facial jackpot when Wonderman took one look noticed something different and panicked thinking I'd had "some work done"...seriously, who's laughing now???
And my final face secret weapon is Stila Illuminating Finishing powder in Gold.It just gives a little glow to keep your face from looking to flat and matte. Just brush it lightly over cheekbones and nose.
Now some of you may be thinking "That's a lot of face crap...no wonder she can't get out of the house before 1:00!!" Not true...I honestly do all this in ten minutes and that includes eyes, blush and lips. Maybe 15 -20 if WW is on and I'm distracted watching her show. It is the time I spend blowing out my hair that eats up my morning which is why I think I might start rocking my Amy Winehouse wig year round. What I really want is the wig my friend Sharon Osbourne wore to my party!! Time for me to WIG OUT for real!!! And a big hug and kiss to my unpaid much loved personal publicist - Mrs. Bedgood (real name too!!) for telling everyone to read my blog and helping me share the GOODSTUFF!!!
