It is hard to be rich and fancy on a budget. I have been having some trouble making ends meet, what with all the money I spend on fancy stuff. So this weekend I got tough with myself and got rid of cable and Netflix and downgraded my internet. I still have to blog, you know. Can't let my readers down.
One of my problems is cosmetics and hair products. Now, I am out of foundation and am just doing without. Luckily I have lots of eyeshadows in lots of colors. What? I bought them BEFORE the market went sour. Thanks to me, the government will not have to spend millions to bail out MAC. See? I contribute to society. You're welcome.
But the hair. I am afraid that in LA I developed an addiction to spa quality hair products. From Italy. Yeah. And now I am out of the shampoo and conditioner.
I'm sure you just think I like to spend money (it's true, I do), but the reason I really like these products is that they don't aggravate my eczema and they don't make my scalp break out. The drugstore brands irritate my poor little head. Really. Also, I think there might be a pea under my mattress. Could someone be a love and come remove it for me? Thanks ever so.
Luckily, one of my friends works at a major fashion magazine and is very generous with the freebies she gets. If she can't use them, she passes them along to her friends. She gave me a few products recently, so I used them to make tonight a spa night for myself.
Nice. My hair is very soft, and no hint of a breakout.
Next I addressed my need of a mani/pedi. I miss getting one in the salon, but I can do it just as well at home. My friend gave me OPI Miami Beet, which is supposed to be really hot for this season.
How do they look?
Now, what to do about shampoo? Shall I try to make my own?
