The early bird gets the worm...

I have a Sephora order coming today. I got an Urban Decay palette for only $10 with my gift card and a markdown. :cheer:

Well, early bird, good choice of titles! :)

Back to doggie bathing. I put Cooper in the kitchen sink. He sits and looks at me like I'm torturing him, and he shakes. I hate to bathe him :(, he looks so pitiful. But, I figure it's easier for him if I do it rather than a groomer. He's a Cavalier, so he doesn't get trimmed, just bathed and the dew claws cut. He walks 2 miles a day with me so the foot claws stay naturally short. And if the bathing isn't bad enough, the blow drying is :eek:. I have to do it though, because he has a double coat and it takes so long to dry.

Do we need a glamor Puss & Woof?

omg omg omg. for those of you near/in NYC, you must RUN (not walk) to the cosmetics market on 17 East 37th Street (212) 725-3625. (b/w madison & 5th) i nearly hyperventilated when i walked in. Stila lipglosses for 3.99, clinique facewash for 2.99, bobbi brown, philosophy, etc etc. I'm assuming they get all of last season's colours, but i couldn't care less. i left with two full bags for $40.
i'm so happy.
go!

dry shampoo - does anyone have one that is dark enough for thick, dark brown (almost black) hair? whenever i use even the dark haired formula, it still looks like i've put baby powder on my hair in an attempt to make me look older for a school play.

thanks!

I don't, sorry. :( Cake, a Canadian company makes a brunette one, but it's not perfect. Can you check with a salon?

Maybe the suggestion of a translucent powder would help you? When I used it recently, it was as if I'd put nothing in my hair to be brushed out. But it did work. Mind you, I'm dark blonde, but I do notice regular dry shampoos when over-applied or not brushed out well enough.

I've actually been avoiding these threads (I mean how much more stereotypical can I get :D), but I have a question that needs answering - WHAT do y'all do for your feet during the winter so they don't get all dry and rough?

:shuffle: I don't. :P

But I hear using a thick cream and wearing some kind of sock to bed helps. Bliss makes socks just for this, as well as gloves for hands. (I lost my Body Shop pair. :wuzrobbed:)

Thanks, Andora.

Sometimes I use Vaseline, but that can be messy. And I'm also too cheap to spend the $$$ on those creams - they can get pricey.

Guess I'd better shell out some dough, then...

Are you talking about the heel mess? The only thing that works for me is to use a pumice stone on my heels every single time I take a shower. Or you could try a hot pink ped egg. :lol:

I have that and the generic CVS version, which has a long handle attached to it as well as three attachments for sloughing, cleaning and buffing. I don't have time to do it every day like one should.

Vaseline doesn't really get absorbed by the skin, it just sits on top. Use a penetrating cream and put socks on, as Andora suggests. You should also get a pumice stone or foot rasp (maybe that egg shaped one). Use it to slough off dry skin in the shower and then moisturize. If you put a moisturizer on right after a shower, you trap in the moisture (from the shower) and the heat of the shower opens the pores. Just be careful walking around with slippery feet! :lol: Another thing you can do is get an occasional pedicure - there are lots of walk-in places that only charge $20. If you only go every 4/6 weeks it's not too expensive. And if you don't get colored polish it lasts.

Here are a few inexpensive foot specific creams:

Honestly, it takes me about twenty seconds to use the pumice stone. I leave it right in the shower. I figure my feet are soaking as I take a shower so I just give my heels a few swipes before I get out. Your heels won't look great right away, but eventually you should get the mess off.

Thanks, ladies :respec:

cruisin, I wanna get the Soul Owner Foot Cream - it has mood enhancers!!! :inavoid:

One of my resolutions is to take better care of my feet. I want to wear sandals and flip-flops this summer, but it ain't happening if the dogs ain't alright NOW...

IMO, feets are the least attractive part of a person. I obsess over bad dogs, especially my own.
