The dress on the left is something off FabSugar. How much do you totally love it???!!
This is a great link to a post on Faking Good Breeding on whitewashed runways – I’m Asian, and I agree 100%. There isn’t even room in bloody China for an Asian-looking Asian – all the models are increasingly tall, and have lighter and lighter skin, as they strive to look Caucasian.
I know it’s an old post, but Fabulously Broke in the City has a really good point about parents – I know mine would never expect me to support them, ever, but I’m not sure what I’d do if I had to. My mom and dad are supporting mom’s mom right now, and it’s really hard on all of us – no one can stand her.
Last thing! I may have to try this L’Oreal collection that Canadian Beauty is raving about, because it looks terrific!
Ttfn, kids – I have to call the little one before I can rush rush rush. And then I have so much to do that I might not get to watch Heroes tonight… (I know – gasp!)

Aw…thank you, VG.
I guess I should have told you all yesterday. I’m okay; I was practically built to always be okay. (You should meet my mom. She could probably could have made it through Katrina unfazed.)
tna’s party’s tonight, and my Saturday is busy too, so I’ll post again probably on either Saturday night or on Sunday.

Does anyone else find this CBC article incredibly unnerving? I felt safe where I live – apparently, I shouldn’t.

My Freeman’s facial scrub got discontinued. It was a miracle in a bottle; dirt cheap and incredibly effective. And then I ran out. And they didn’t have it. And still don’t.
In addition to that, which I use on my jawline and gently around the outer corners of my eyes (I get milia), I use the Biore anti-blackhead warming cleanser on my nose and T-zone. It really does warm – you have to try it!! I think it’s $13 a bottle, but it lasts next to forever and is always a treat to use, so the price is really quite reasonable. I tried to not use it for a week – my blackheads got worse and worse until I finally conceded that this was actually a product that I had to use.
It DOES NOT get rid of blackheads, but it makes mine a lot less visible. I tried the pore strip things, and I can safely say that you should just not waste your money and time on them. They hurt even more than I expected (and I can wax without feeling a thing!!), irritated my skin, and didn’t help at all.
EDIT: They reformulated. It sucks. I’m allergic to it. And it’s green inside. Like, green green. And they upped the scent-age tenfold. Ugh.
