I saw it in the Rolex catalogue.
It is not just a figment of the hip hop, ballin' like crazy, Canal Street stall creation.
It was like $117k+CAD.

I need to organise them better, but I don't think I own a pair of cat-eye sunglasses. And I certainly don't own a pair of Pradas!
The question is...what colour/colour combo to get?

I'm sure you'll all agree, dry skin = aging skin. When your skin looks dry, it's dull and appears wrinkly and crepe-y. And who wants to look like that? NO ONE.
So after finishing a small bar of black african soap with good results to combat the dullness of Winter, I went back to my old cleansers (Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser, Andalou Apricot Probiotic Cleansing Milk) with slightly duller results than the soap. And that's when I remembered that I had a coupla brand new bars of Sibu's Sea Buckthorn Cleansing Face & Body Bar. That's a mouthful!
(It doesn't appear in this photo, but on the box that I have, it actually says 'Cleanse & Detox'. Perfect for the New Year! Plus, it states that it's 100% natural. I must say though for something that's natural, the smell is reminiscent of a carwash.)
Since it's a regular sized bar of soap and I'm only gonna use it for my face, I cut the bar in half so it's easier to handle.
I've only used the bar once, but it yielded good results! My skin was opposite of dull. I'm not trying to bash Kiehl's/Andalou's products, but I find skin gets accustomed to cleansing/moisturising products to the point of losing efficacy. So in the near future, I'll hafta write an update of this Sibu product!
Another product that I find helpful in fighting dullness is Origins' A Perfect World White Tea Skin Guardian.
It's supposed to go on freshly cleansed skin, before moisturising, and it's sorta part serum/primer, but without all those silicones. I don't use a lot of products, so the ones I do use, I try to be as natural as possible and that includes staying away from heavily scented things. :S I find that Origins does a great job with striking that nice balance of being scented, but not too much. I love the delicate scent of this Skin Guardian!
Warning: At $60+/bottle, this product ain't cheap, but it's nice!

This store cracks me up.
As a non-girly girl/"bargoon" shopper, the popularity of Sephora just cracks me up! It's a perfect example of the power of marketing.
Essentially there are probably only a dozen or so products that Sephora sells, re: mascara, eye liner, nail polish, eyeshadow, blush, perfume, to name a few. HOWEVER, there are a bagillion different brands, wrapped in various attractive packaging, housed under 1 roof. And this place always seems to be busy, most of the time, even with a line at the check-out!
I dunno about you, but I'm just there to try shit on - using the appropriate testers, of course! - and get free samples.

Never say never, but I'm almost positive that it is just not in me to qualify for TLC's My 600-lb Life. First of all, I'm 4'10", so I'd probably burst open before I'd even reach 300-lbs!
Having said that, my Winter of "hibernating like a bear" and eating like a food blogger may be over 'cause I feel damn gross. I haven't seen the inside of a gym in like 2 months.
Besides, Candy Crush keeps crashing on my phone. I think it's trying to tell me something. I may also have OPD, Obsessive Personality Disorder. So keep crack away from me.
My New Year's goal is to be fit. Not surburban fit, but urban fit. There's a difference.

Assuming this is not the work of Dr. Dubrow (love him!!!), I'm all for getting a deal, but do you really want that when it comes to plastic surgery??
Is Backdoor Farrah auditioning for Season 2 of Botched??
Update: Did I call it or what?? Click here for Botched announcement.

Sorry, that was waaay too easy.
Apparently, the 'net has been a-buzz about British actor, Stephen Fry* (57) and his 27yo fiancé.
* And yes, I had to imdb him!

A Young Anthony Bourdain
While watching A Cook's Tour, featuring a much younger Anthony Bourdain*, with a coupla girlfriends, I naively asked, "Do you think he slept with a lot of women while he was doing these trips??" D, immediately piped up, "YES, of course!!!"
In which I responded, "Do you wish you had a penis like 10 years ago so you could've slept with a bunch of women?"
That Freaky-Friday idea was shot down with, "Why do you need a penis to sleep with a bunch of people?"
True, I guess, but then I reminded D of a deficiency in our anatomy, "But if I was a guy, I wouldn't get pregnant!"
D responded, "But if you were sleeping with a bunch of different women, someone might blame you for getting them pregnant!"
Misspent youth, where did you go? I know...I'm still living it! ;)
* Just to be clear, I have weird taste in men. I detest smokers, but what makes him attractive to me is that he lives his life without fear of the unknown. He has passion and goes out and chases it!

Shades of '15
(the warmer, the better on me. Otherwise, it washes me out!)
(It brings me back to my high school uniform, but honestly, it's universally complimentary!)
shades of greige/taupe/nudes!
