Two Great Products

Today I noticed that my beautiful wood floor has multiple scratches that are no doubt my fault. Mark always tells me not to drag the furniture around but to lift it - which I can't do alone, so I drag it. I didn't think I was scratching the floor but I was wrong. So I whipped out my handy-dandy little Tibet Almond stick, rubbed it on the scratches, and presto, the scratches disappeared! Everyone needs one of these -- for floors, furniture, whatever. They are miracle workers. Where do you get a Tibet Almond stick? http://www.zcwinc.com/ They're cheap and easy to get. And they work. Can't beat that.

I also LOVE Bare Escentuals brand self-tanner. I used to be a real sunbather until I saw the error of my ways and ceased. I love the tanned look but I hate all the other self-tanners I've tried. I hate the streaks, the orangey-ness, the nasty chemical smell -- I hate it all. However -- this is great stuff. It goes on brown so you can actually see how it's going on, it doesn't turn orange, and it smells good -- like coconut! Great stuff. Not cheap, but worth it as far as I'm concerned. I bought it from QVC and I know they sell it at Ulta as well. It's called Faux tan and is the best product out there, I think. Check it out.

Thanks for the info-I'm excited to use that stuff on our wood floors. This house has a ton of hardwood flooring and when I look closely there are a lot of little scratches. They bug me. Can't wait to try that almond stick! And of course, I don't tan well. I have my lovely pale skin and freckles to show that, so thats good to know. I am definitely the outcast at the Duenas house, with everyone else and their gorgeous natural tans:)

Thanks for the info--I'm excited about the self-tanner. I just let myself fry in the summer, which I know is horrible. I want to try that stick out, too. Sounds pretty handy.
