Sure- Amazon's website made it look confusing!

Rejuvacote is one bottle- one singular product. One step.
It is a clear product when applied, but the bottles look a little pinker from photo to photo on the website.
What they show (forget their wording) is multiple packs of bottles.
Try one bottle, follow the recommended application, (be sure to include the nail tip) and see how you like it once the bottle is done. Keep us posted!
(P.S. their prices are in line- and the bottle lasts a long time.)

Miracote is another product- it is a top coat to be used to seal nail polish and give it a glossy finish. Very good for glossing up the polish between manicures, but has no reparative effect on the nails.
Rejuvacote flew off my shelves at the salon.
Oh yes, remember to use a non- acetone ONLY polish remover, then wash that off with gentle soap.

My goodness, you are probably right! I have to be extremely careful with skin products, fragrances, WOW...crazy that I never thought of it. I shall look at your website and I hope your venture in TV prospers. Thanks.

Thanks for the clarification, Uptown Girl.

Does anyone know what day the restaurant coupons appear in the daily newspaper? Thanks.

The 'Dining Guide' which has the two pages of restaurant ads/coupons is in the Thursday paper.

I can make it look sophisticated ( for special occasions- like weddings) but mostly do a random piece-y thing for everyday. A little gel or hairspray helps to hold the fullness at the roots. I use that sometimes.

Since menopause, my hair is less abundant, especially at the temples and crown. So, shorter hair looks like more on me.
I take water aerobics 3 days a week and we ride in our golf car a lot, so with these factors a short haircut, for me, is now the way to go.

Jeesh- gotta learn how to make these photos smaller! Hope I didn't scare anyone. HA!
I just realized that you posted a picture showing your haircut.
It looks great on you, but it wouldn't work for me as I always hide behind long bangs.
I love your eyebrows, they are so natural looking.
If you don't mind sharing ... If your hair is mostly silver, how do you keep your eyebrows dark?

If your hair is abundant enough at the bang area, you can do this same haircut and keep long bangs- have your stylist section off the bangs (in a triangle from almost your crown) and leave them alone… do the rest of the cut, then lightly integrate the bangs in at the end, when the hair is almost dry… leaving them at the length that is comfortable for you.
The front will look like Kaley Cuoco's recent pixie cut.

My brows (thanks, by the way) are showing a little silver here and there and are thinning a bit along with my hair.
I fill them in lightly with an artist's colored pencil (a medium grey) using short, vertical strokes, just as if I were drawing them on paper.
I remove any wayward strokes with a damp Q tip.

here's a tip- if you have a regular (graphite) pencil that has softer graphite, softer than a #2, it makes a perfect eyebrow pencil that works with almost any color brow. Just dull the tip a bit, so it is not sharp and use tiny vertical strokes.

I have also used an angled makeup brush (wet it) and matte eye shadow in the same way. It stays in place until you cleanse or wet your face.
That takes a bit more practice than using a pencil- and you'll want your shadow pan to dry completely before putting it away.

They have some great brush on products (like Dermabrow) online, but they are pricey ($30 + shipping)- so I experimented with what I had on hand and it worked for me.

I use matte eye shadow now. Or when I'm lazy, I wear a baseball hat, cover my eyebrows with my bangs and hope the wind doesn't blow.

What is your opinion on having eyebrows tattooed? I've seen some that are horrendous, and others using short strokes that look somewhat natural (after the first few weeks).

I'm not sure how this hair cut would work in a golf cart.
But it sure would make the "growing out grey" process simpler.
Of course it looks great on her because she is young and has good bone structure.

In my opinion, you've got to consider the long term effects. Face muscles change with age. Your brow line will too. Tattoos change with age, pigment colors change over time with exposure to sunlight (and perhaps even ph in the skin)
There is an old thread on this topic somewhere- where I talked about an otherwise beautiful woman I met at a party who owned a 'permanent brow' salon. Her brows were tattooed. She thought they looked fabulous. They truly unnerved everyone else.

OH YEAH, that haircut cut (in total) would look pretty trashed after a golf cart ride.
Just mentioned it as an example of a pixie with long bangs in front. REALLY long bangs. That is a razor cut, by the way.
AND you are right, the ideal haircut is balanced to one's bone structure- or, as in my case, lack of bone structure.
If I have to be reincarnated again, I'm picking out high cheekbones, an exquisite jawline and full brows next time.

Default Would like to find golf partner

I'm not ready to commit to a league, but would like to find someone who would like to play golf one or two days a week. (9 holes) I'm new to The Villages and miss my golfing gals from Michigan. I live in the Village of Pinellas near the library. I'm a terrible golfer, but love to go out and laugh at myself try to play the game.

I am also a terrible golfer, but I enjoy the fresh air.
I'd be interested in playing one afternoon each week (Wednesday or Friday), starting in 2015.
We do follow the rules, play ready golf and keep up the pace.
I know a couple of other terrible golfers who would probably be interested in joining us.
Would you be willing to play on mid-Villages golf courses? (One girl lives in a far north Village).
