Favorite Things - October

Alright my little blogger friends, here are my October favorites; a short list but I have been so pre-occupied it's all I can come up with...

We just purchased this little beauty! It is a Toshiba netbook... Little gal weighs in at a mere 2.8 pounds! The netbooks do not have a CD-ROM/DVD drive nor any other programs. Her primary purpose is internet access and e-mail checking. She came pre-loaded with the new Windows 7, so I was a bit apprehensive but it is super simple! This model has a larger keyboard and raised keys (built more for a man's hand IMHO) which is just perfect for the Fireguy!!

Bio-Oil® is a specialist skincare product that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone.

Bio Oil wont get rid of your stretchmarks... it can only improve the texture and tone of your skin which in turn will slightly improve the look of your stretchmarks.... Once they're there there really is no getting rid of them so its best to accept them as part of you, part of the story of your body, your life...

I use this product and both my kids have used it on scars with fantastic results!!

My last favorite of the month comes with a little story...

On my last visit to the mall I was approached my someone from one of the mall vendors. Somehow he sucked me in to a conversation and proceeded to tell me what lovely natural nails I had!!! Ppppshah!!

Bottom line, he wanted to sell me this FANTASTIC nail care kit for a mere $115!!! When I started to walk away he succumbed and with puppy dog eyes offered me the set for $79, meaning the buffer was FREE!! Still telling my story of 'that is just way too much money' he began to act like he was telling me this BIG secret by now offering me two kits for the $79... Yeah, no I'm still not spending that for a nail kit!!!

I told a little white lie by saying that I needed to get to another store but had to walk right by here again and I would think about... Actually I was headed out to my car, but seriously this guy was a great salesman, but the product was just too danged expensive.

Me, being me got home and began my research on SEACRET as I was really impressed by the look of my nails after one session of buffing!

I found said nail care kit on eBay for as little as $8!!! with a high of $35/40 - So guess what I did :-) of course I bought the $5 set and am completely happy!!

The nail care kit really is a good product for those of you that have natural nails, you will be amazed at the results and they need only be buffed every other week!! The kit includes cuticle oil, nail file and hand cream; which by the way is OCEAN scented...

This is so funny! I had that same run in with I believe the same company at a mall last year round christmas time. Same price and my answer was the same as yours. She dropped it down and then offered me the same by one and get one free deal. I declined. SO FUNNY! If I would have bought it you would have gotten in for christmas last year.

The beautiful natural nails must run in the family, because mine looked too. Especially after she buffed it :-)
