Today's Theme Is Narcissism

I am currently reveling in about $50 worth of drugstore beauty products. I bought them all on the advice of a single article in Jane magazine. (Despite the fact that Jane so agressively informs me it is for women in their 20s. At first it was a guilty salon pleasure and now I've actually subscribed.) It was either the October or November issue, and since I can't find it I can't give the author credit, but almost every one of these products is a home run. The best of the bunch:

  • Pantene Restoratives Time Renewal has done amazing things to my hair in two shampoos.
  • Revlon Skinlights Instant Skin Brightener. You squeeze this stuff onto your fingertips and think, oh no no no no no. Then you spread it on your face and you look 25 again. It's that simple. Why 25-year-olds want to look 15 I don't know, but there it is.
  • Neutrogena Sunblock Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch SPF 55 Lotion. Key words here being "Dry-touch." You know how all the beauty editors and dermatologists say you should wear sunscreen every day, even in the winter, and on your hands and everything and you say "Screw you" because even Coppertone sport is not something you want on your face 365 days a year? Behold this stuff, which has a light, normal un-coconutlike scent and you'd never know it was there after you rub it in.
Also, I have a new blog: The Reunions Project. It's my 15th college reunion in June, and I intend to be hot. So hot that all the guys who wouldn't look at me 15-19 years ago will be kicking themselves. Hot enough for at least one person to admit it out loud. Hot enough to make up for the fact that I was pregnant at my 5th and had a 2.5-month-old baby along at the 10th.

Anyway, The Reunions Project is the reincarnation of my triathlon blog. I did manage to run a 5K in October, I don't know if I ever mentioned that. And I may revisit the triathlon thing in the future. But right now it's all about the shallow.

I'll have to give those a try - I trust word of mouth (or blog) more than advertisments and I haven't read Jane in awhile.
