In a few days my 21-year-old daughter will board an airplane (by herself) and travel halfway around the world (by herself) to spend four and a half months studying abroad in Brisbane, Australia (not by herself but with people with much cooler accents … and koalas, which are my very favorite animal). And for the […]

  • Snarkfest - Oh Lord. 4 months in Australia??? I’m buying stock in Chardonnay. Good luck with this! Much love to you.ReplyCancel

Two recaps in one post, ya’ll, and yes, I’m doubly disappointed in myself. One, for continuing with this disaster of a season at all, and two, for giving up three + extra hours of my life slogging through it here on the blog for another week when only like 54 people are bothering to read […]

  • Sue K. - Proud to be one of the 54!!! Once again you nailed it. This is the best thing on the internet right now.ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - Well, while I’m not sure I’d totally agree with that marvelous compliment I will agree that 99% of what’s out there these days (from all sides) is making me sick…er than having to watch Nick for two hours each week. 😛 Love you for that sweet comment and for being a loyal reader! xoReplyCancel

It’s only week two into our descent into Hell, Bachelor fans, and I don’t know about you, but I’m already starting to feel the burn. Nick, on the other hand, is already starting to feel the boobs. Grab a drink, douse yourself in Purell, and let’s get this over with. Disclaimer: The following is a […]

  • Amy - Hilarious recap, as always. Favorite quip: “Corinne excuses herself to have her nanny help her insert her NuvaRing.” You kill me! Personal opinion, the best part of the show was the bonus footage at the credits. Thanks for the amazing summary!ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - I’m praying the nanny makes a surprise appearance at some point. If she makes it to hometowns — which I’m betting she will because BOOBS — can you imagine? “Nick will be meeting my mother Lucinda, my father Patrinko, and my nanny Esmerelda who will cut his steak into tiny bites for him.”

      Appreciate your comment – and as always, you reading this crap. 🙂 xoReplyCancel

It’s Golden Globe day, you guys, or as I think of it, SuperGlobe Sunday. (I actually just made that up like five seconds ago when I needed a post title but I like it so much I’m going to convince myself it’s what I’ve always called it). Makes sense, because I’ve long thought of this […]

  • Karen - I just saw La La Land last night and was less than impressed…give me Zac Efron singing and dancing any day 🙂

    Also, agree with Kim Grady – The Crown was BORING….sorryReplyCancel

If you read the blog it’s no secret that for the past few years I’ve been in a major battle with aging, and it’s been ugly. Not so much the battle (because I’m a gracious loser), but the sags, bags, and wrinkles that make me literally gasp each morning when I see myself in the […]

  • Arlene lowery - How often should I use lash boost once I am happy with the lash growthReplyCancel

    • Michelle - I still use it nightly, but I suppose you could go every other night or a few times a week? The life cycle of an eyelash is like 3 months, so those lush new lashes will eventually fall out.ReplyCancel

  • Rande Baker - Skeptical at first…..been using for a month….the difference is amazing!!!! No longer skeptical…..Convinced!!!! Love this product!!!! I recommend😍😍ReplyCancel

  • Ada - Awful. My upper eyelids became severely irritated, dry and my lashes fell out. I have a patch of missing eye lashes on both eyes. Dissatisfied and dissapointed does not even begin to explain my thoughts on this product. Never again.ReplyCancel

  • Kimberly Raub - Love this product!!!
    Don’t stop using it, your lashes will fall out by the handful!!! I noticed they seem a bit brittleReplyCancel

  • Linda P - I bought Lash Boost from one of the nurses that I work with about 2 weeks ago. I’m using it religiously and keep checking but nothing much yet. I also wore lash extensions for almost 3 years and have no idea what the heck happened to my own, somewhat naturally long lashes, because what I have now is pathetic. Is everyone still as enthusiastic as they were when they first started?ReplyCancel

  • Shanie Parkinson - This stuff is awful!!! It gave me a stye in my eye that has been there for weeks and won’t go away. It made most of my lashes fall out. It ruins contacts (I wear the ones you sleep in). My daughter used it once and woke up with her eyes infected so bad she had to go to an optometrist. A lot of money to spend and then get horrible results. I have never had such a bad experience with a beauty product. Do not buy!ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - Sorry that happened to you! I have been using it nightly for a year now and have never had an issue, nor have the thousand of others who swear by it! I did hear that if you use too much it can irritate your eyes, so perhaps that was the case? At any rate, everyone reacts to things differently. Too bad you had an awful experience. Hope R + F refunded you! (Again, I do not work for the company, just love this product!)ReplyCancel

    • Zandra Warzonek - I’m not a doctor or a R&F rep, but I’m pretty sure styes are caused by contagious staph bacteria and not beauty products. So, maybe, try washing your hands.ReplyCancel

  • Jeanette - Should I use eyelash boost if I have recentry completed 4 months of chemotherapy? My lashes are almost gone, and I might have to resume the chemo again?ReplyCancel

    • Michelle - I’m not sure, but I will forward this question to a Rodan + Fields consultant and get back to you!ReplyCancel

  • Lauren - I started using the lash boost in December it has been a month and not much difference for anyone to notice except me. I read it happens in month two. I sure hope so I am still using it even with red irritated eyes and the black tint I have under and around my eyes. I even had to buy the new product for bright eyes that work in two weeks not true hasn’t started to work for me either. I learned to wipe my eyes lashes when I put it on not sure maybe I shouldn’t do that. I sure hope I get the results. My right eye is getting a couple of little pimples.ReplyCancel

Q: What do dolphins, Ariel the mermaid, and Olivia Pope have in common? A: strength B: beauty C: free-spiritedness D: an addiction to fine any Cabernet E: three things most girls who sell their souls to ABC wish they could be D (again). all of the above I think the answer is obvious. D. For […]

  • Lucia P. - “Fiery former orphan” may, in fact, be one of the funniest things you wrote this year. Lol. Plus hooray that you will be re-capping the Bachelor!! Nick makes my skin crawl, but I’ll soldier on because I have to watch if you will be breaking it down later!

    Happy New Year!ReplyCancel
