I know I left you with a cliffhanger and that’s not fair.  But guess what?  I need you to hang there just a little longer while I work out a personal crisis. 

Just the other day, I dropped (for the one millionth time)  and broke my Olay Regenerist stick.  That may not sound oh so serious to you but it is a personal disaster of monumental proportion!   Allow me to explain:

This little stick of wonder is the only thing that keeps me from tripping on the bags under my eyes.   Every morning I stumble to the kitchen and retrieve that wand of perfection from my refrigerator.  I roll those cold little roller balls covered in debaggery lotion under my eyes and then sit back, drink coffee and wait for magic to begin.  For the record, I don’t know if keeping it in the fridge makes it work better but that is what Lolly does and she doesn’t have any bags under her eyes.  And that is good enough for me.   As for me, I won’t say that this cosmetic tool completely erases the bags under my eyes but man oh man does it ever help.

Before you get all, “Let’s start a telethon for SMB and her baggy eyes!”, I bought a new stick and personal crisis #1 has been averted.

But never being one to leave well enough alone, I decided to get creative and experimentish.  Hey, when inspiration hits, one must go with it, right?  Right?  That’s what I thought.

So I was applying some “More Expensive than I Usually Spring For but Since I am Desperate, Go for IT” eye cream yesterday when I noticed all these little wrinkles around my mouth.  And I thought to myself, “Self, how does this lotion know if it is dewrinkling your eyes or your mouth?”  And myself answered, “I bet it doesn’t know the difference at all.  Just because it’s pricey doesn’t mean it’s smart.” 

And so I did it.


I applied that METIUSFBSIADGFI eye cream to the wrinkles around my mouth.  And you know what?  I think it worked.  A little……  But a little is good, right?  I do notice a difference.

The only thing is:

Now every time I can’t find the words to express myself………my mouth squints.


Love and Kisses

I just gave in recently and made a commitment to degreyifying.... I didn't know I had to worry about debaggifying as well...!

As usual - so sweet to see you in my google reader.

I going to buy me some of that wrinkle cream. And how far behind am I that I didn't realize you were posting again. So it goes, huh?

I feel so loved since you have shared your beloved debagging wand with moi....and you left your luggage in my closet. O.k. that really was NOT dirty.
