I don't even gno-me anymore

So..... I bought a garden gnome.
And I love it.

Seriously tho, ever since I saw an episode of King of the Hill where Peggy discovers this underground cult obsessed with garden gnomes, I knew I had to have one.

They are pretty much one of the MOST ridiculous things ever.

I mean. It's a gnome. And he sits in your garden. WTF

I need to find some little friends for him.

I'm thinking my next acquisition is going to be a lawn jockey.

I want to fill my garden with as many kitschy things as I can find.

But there is no way in h e double hockey sticks that I am going to put a deer in my yard.

Not yet at least.

When your skin is convinced you are still 13

I have met so many people

adult people

who complain about having problem skin.

I never really had acne or pimples or blemishes or zits

or whatever you want to call it

until I WAS an adult.

Sucks to be me.

I've made it my life's mission

(when I feel like it)

to find products that really DO help my skin.

I've actually found a couple that I'd like to share, since we pizza faced grown-ups need to stick together.

*no I am NOT being paid for this post*

Basically, you rub this orange smelling, gel like, sandy goop all over your face to exfoliate (yes, you can DEF feel those little grains doing their job), and then you activate the peel with a dollop of clear gel that you massage onto the orange goop already on your face. Once you mix the two gels, they immediately warm up and make your skin feel all smooth and yummy.
Rinse and you are done!
I honestly noticed a big difference in the softness and lack of breakouts the following day. EVEN with moisturizer, which I can never use.

My skin is either an oil slick or the Sahara desert.

For less than 30 bones, how can you go wrong?

My next post will cover the fabulousness that is Lush

With an entire beauty/skincare line made from natural and ONLY natural ingredients, I could easily spend an entire week's (or month's) salary at their store.


Good luck fighting the good fight

And let me know how these products work out for you!
