Friday Fun!

I heard this on Regis & Kelly the other day and had to pass it on. It's under the heading of useless but fun information to know. There's an article in Woman's Health magazine that says the average woman consumes between four to nine pounds of lipstick in her life. That's anywhere between 481 to 1,083 tubes of lipstick in a lifetime. So there you have it, the reason why I can't seem to lose those last stubborn pounds. :-) Have a nice weekend and don't eat too much lipstick!

I just got an email this morning warning about the "all day" lipsticks. DO THIS TEST: rub a small amount of lipstick in the palm of your hand. Rub the lipstick with a Gold ring. If it turns black, it has a very high level of lead, which in turn causes cancer...It's just the long staying brands. Several, like Lancome, have pulled some of their lipsticks...Geez, you can't win!

Wow, I guess I am lucky in a way. I always wear make-up, not a ton, but can't stand to be without. But I never wear lipstick. Never ever. I do occasionally put on a little gloss when my lips are dry, but that is it.

Hi Joan,

So nice to have you visit us again! Thank you for your lovely comments on our Blog. Well the weather, it is rather unusual. In Melbourne we do have hot Summers though and the occasional days above 40C (104F+) but this occurs usually around late January and early February.

This summer we have had more hotter days ever above 35c (95F+) Some relief today though, there is a cool change and temerature has dropped to around 23c (74F), just perfect!

Love the lipstick fact, aha, that accounts for the extra notch on the belt loop LOL

And love your new banner, of couse the Bowerbirds would :) Have a lovely weekend Joan !
