Operation Rewind

Posted on May 16th, 2010 by Jean

If you hadn’t seen someone for twenty years, wouldn’t you want to look your best for the reunion? That is exactly the predicament I recently faced. Facebook reunites me with friends from my past, and lucky for me, one was was planning a trip to Vegas. We conversed for months making plans to meet for lunch while she was in town.
 
Although I dragged my feet for a while, by April Operation Rewind was underway. I needed to recapture my youthful glow!
 
Step 1: Exfoliate.
I’m a big fan of Bobbi Brown’s Beach Scrub. Alas, my wallet is not. I was able to find a new creation, the Bobbi Brown Sandbar. Quick Review: Bobbi, your sandbar hurt me. The sand was so rough it was akin to rubbing cut glass on my legs. A bit harsh? Yeah, so was your sandbar until the sandy layer washed away after only two uses. Now I am left with a 1″x2″ bar of beach-scented soap.
 
My first and possibly 2nd layer of skin removed, I was now ready for …
 
Step 2: Self-Tanning.
Jergens Natural Glow for Fair Skin turned me from translucent to pale without a hint of orange. I still have my Chanel face tanner from last year, and slathered that on too. Slightly bronzy facial skin achieved.
 
Step 3: Teeth Whitening
Found Crest’s Premium Whitestrips under my sink and said, “What the heck.” Noticeably whiter teeth after three uses.
 
Step 4: Pedicure
No funds for the local nail salon, so I clipped, filed and painted my own toes. Rocking OPI’s – Sweet As Annie-Thing! from their 90210 Collection.
 
Step 5: Wardrobe
Grabbed a lovely Forever 21 sundress from my closet, a gravity-defeating Victoria’s Secret strapless bra from my lingerie drawer, comfy Havaianas flip-flops, and I was good to go!
 
Unfortunately my friend was not. Her hotel overbooked and bumped her to another resort, causing her a lot of stress. Thus our lunch plans went kaput.
 
I hope her travels bring her back to Vegas soon. I’m not sure how long the effects of Operation Rewind last.

Must-Have Products

Posted on May 18th, 2008 by Jean

Dazzleglass
 
MAC Cosmetics
 
just came out with a new product called Dazzleglass.
 

 
But, I got to wondering, how would it look on me?
 

 
Hideous!
 
Oprah
 
Did you watch Oprah on Friday? It was Give-Away Day.
 

 
What made it funny was that for about 20 minutes, Oprah said she wasn’t giving anything away! Then, the first thing she *gave* was a turkey burger recipe she’d gotten from Donald Trump’s chef.
 

 
The audience, God bless ’em, they were still hooting & hollering, even over a free recipe.
 

 
She finally stepped up to the plate and gave everyone a new grill.
 

 
OPI
 
Allure Magazine says OPI’s Charged Up Cherry makes nails look like they’re ready for vacation.
 

 
1. Would you wear dazzleglass?
2. What is on your summer *must have* list?
3. Would you rather try Trump’s turkey burger, or OPI Charged Up Cherry polish?
