Some people say that after a while your face and scalp adjusts.  I just can't see that happening for me if I were to try such an experiment.  You take some really good photos.

Yeah, I'm with you Drear.  Maybe it would adjust after a while, but I don't feel like going through the greasy face and resulting breakouts in the meantime.  I'd rather experiment with milder, more natural shampoos. 

You have no idea how many pictures I had to take to get that one right!  Cheesy  At our old house we had a medicine cabinet facing the wall mirror in the bathroom and I could use that to line up the camera right.  But now we just have the one mirror, so I had to take a bunch until I got one that was ok.

My goodness, you have a lot of hair! I see big, beautiful, blonde waves in your future. Wink

And I'm totally with you on the not washing theory. Nasty. Tongue If I go even one day without it, my face turns red and gets greasy and irritated. My skin is completely intolerant of oils, including its own, so frequent washing is mandatory. Plus it feels better anyway. Roll Eyes

Cheers!

Your hair looks super healthy and pretty, nice color! Cheesy  Cool pic of the katydid, too!  I see those everyday but never knew what they were called. Smiley

Good luck with the bang situation.  I just trimmed mine about a week ago and I think I messed up a little too.  Only thing is they seem to need trimmed so frequently, I'm going to just wait and fix mine on the next one.  I doubt that my mistake is visble to anyone but me anyway. Tongue

I didn't know what it was called either.  I knew it wasn't a grasshopper, so I went online and did an Image search on Google for North Texas bugs.  That is such a cool function!  I saw a picture that looked exactly like this guy and it said it was a katydid.  

I'm sure you're right about the bangs.  I just pin them back anyway to keep them out of my face except for those times when I actually want to style my hair with bangs.  Nobody will notice and they'll grow out in a few weeks.

Isn't it??? Cheesy  I know that I'm about to sound really old here...but back when I was a kid, you had to go to the library to look up such things. Tongue

And it'll save you time and a little money.  Glad I could help. Smiley

Remember card catalogs and micro fiche?  I can just imagine the blank look on some youngsters face if I mentioned that in a library today!

Yesterday I opened a set of reed diffusers that I had been given for Christmas last year.  I finally have a place to put them.  One of them smells totally yummy, like vanilla sugar cookies and I put that in my bedroom.  The other one I put on the second bedroom, but took it out almost right away because it reeks!  It smells like some nasty version of patchouli or sandalwood incense or something, I don't know what it is.  It's horrid.  I threw it in the trash because there is no way I will be able to tolerate it anywhere in the apartment.  Last night I put the trash by the front door so I would remember to take it out first thing in the morning, and this morning, I discovered that the bottle had leaked, dissolved through the trash bag, and was all over my wood laminate flooring!   Shocked It dissolved the upper plastic layer of the laminate in three different places and now it's all bubbling and warped looking!   Cry Oh, that's not going to be cheap when the complex has to replace it when we move out!   Sad  I wiped it up with a damp towel as best I could and threw all my towels in for a wash.  Now my whole apartment reeks of this nasty stuff.   Angry  I will probably have to run the wash a few times to get the smell out of my towels.  

Lesson learned: fragrance oils really will dissolve plastic and destroy wood finishes, just like it says on the bottle!

I wouldn't even bother.  My 16 and 20 year old nieces alreay think that I'm ancient.  No need to add more fuel to the fire.  Roll Eyes

I feel for you.  I've had similar situations.  Once in one of my early apartments, I accidentally got oven cleaner on the linolium floor.  It made burn marks on the floor that I was unable to remove.  So I just put an area rug over it to hide it.  However, one day when I went to wash the rug because water had leaked from somewhere and totally soaked it.  And when I took  the rug up, the marks were gone...just dissappeared. Huh  I'm not sure why, but I'm grateful that I didn't have to pay for new flooring.

And just today, I took my trash out.  I don't use plastic bags...trying to be green in some capacity.  Anyway, when I was dumping the trash out of waste basket and into the dumpster, some fluid spilled onto my dress. Angry  I don't know what the stuff was but it was gross.  Right now I have my dress in the washer.  I hope whatever it is comes out.

I love the smell of sugar cookie candles, they do smell yummy!  My husband hates them though because it makes him think that somethings baking...when of course nothing is.  Doh! Grin

Try setting out bowls of baking soda to absorb the smell, and you might try adding some to the wash if the first one doesn't remove it.

I think the baking soda worked.  The smell is nearly gone from the area and I can barely detect it in the towels.  Phew!  

I'm watching Say Yes To The Dress right now on TLC and one of the brides trying on a dress has this beautiful black shiny hair that is about BSL.  So pretty!  

I think my goal right now is nearly waist length.  I love the look of long hair that covers "the girls."  Mine's never been that long.  I've probably got 2.5 - 3 years to go before I'll see that.  *sigh*

CurlGirl and I must be on the same wavelength!  I went through the last of my boxes from the move.  I had about 10 boxes of pictures and decorations and crafts and random crapola.  I went through and organized everything and consolidated and now I have about 4 boxes to put in storage.  I went through all my old beading supplies and organized my patterns.  I found a bunch of little projects I had completed; maybe I'll take a picture or two and post.
