Eye think Eye've tried most

I'm expecting some goodies in the mail from I love them!! I usually send for something new to try as an experiment. If I don't love it I just chalk it up to more things not to bother with!! This time it is going to be Clinique's High Lengths Mascara. Claims are "Wider, fully energized" eyes and a cool brush that finds the tiniest lashes. We shall see. I've tried most mascaras at least once. Some are crap. Most are OK and about the same. A few are actually not to bad.....I'll let you know after my research is finished. I am the lab!! Until we meet again...............

I Love the balm's "BALMS AWAY" eye make-up remover!!!
I've been using Clinique's eye make-up remover for years. The purple one that you have to shake up before using. It works well enough that you don't have to rub or tug very hard. Your eyes don't appreciate a rough ride! If a little got close to my actual eyeball sometimes I'd end up with a nasty case of Red Eye. Needless to say I've been looking for another one that is as easy to use but doesn't get in my eyes. I am LOVING BALMS AWAY (by the BALM)! It goes on without getting anywhere you don't want it and I just wipe it away with a warm washcloth as I'm washing my face. It's awesome! It is my new favorite and I've pretty much tried 'em all!

Hola! Happy Monday! This is THING 2, reporting live from the couch. Such excitement!
Today's Stuff We Love topic is about an amazing movie that I just watched for the very first time...

Breakfast at Tiffany's!

It's so great... Holly Golightly's crazy-awesome 60's outifts, the cat, and (Aww!) Holly and Paul/Fred are the cutest couple ever!

If you haven't seen this already... it's a must see. And I'm really loving Holly's bathtub/couch! I might have to get one of those myself!

Just another form of media that's both making it necessary for me to someday live in New York, and also making me wish that I grew up in the 50s/60s. Any other time period, really... 80s, 20s, I'm not picky! :)

Anyways, such a cute movie. Love love.

We Love Crazy Applebee's Ladies!!

Yes, yes, I do acknowledge that this is the 3rd post in one day, (although only the second by yours truly, THING 2) but bear with me. This Applebee's trip is... noteworthy.

So, we walk into Applebee's. What's that slogan again?

Oh, right. How could I forget??

Anyways... the crazy old hostess asks if we're all 21 w/ IDs. I'm... well, to put it frankly, obviously not. (Hardly a teenager, really!!) But crazy THING 1 and her shenanigans just HAS to tease the old lady into thinking that I am. Glasses, lady! They're a great invention!

And JUST as we're about to be seated in the bar.... sake bombs, anyone? My mom speaks up and does what's right... and we're placed in a booth on the other end of the restaurant.

Oh, well... maybe next time! ;)
(Ok seriously, mom, that last part was a joke. Don't worry!!)


Hoola Hoop!

New Passion Found. Hula Hooping for Health! Hula hooping is a lot of fun and a great work out. I just learned to do the lasso, a.k.a. THE VORTEX! Super Freaky Cool! I can't do any upper body stuff yet because I had a lumpectomy a while ago. Pretty soon though. Make your own hoop with tubing and psychedelic tape. A great way to let your wild and crazy creative side express itself!!

Now go HOOP!
We lluv that stuff!!

1st Post! WOOT WOOT

Hello to anyone who reads this, you internet-goers you. This is THING 2 posting directly from.... drum roll please.... a computer! THING 1 and I have decided to take all of our bottled up opinions and set them loose on the internet. I am warning you now... this blog will be random. From MUSIC we love, to FASHION we love, DOGS we love and PEOPLE we love, FOOD we love and BOOKS we love, QUOTES we love, PICTURES we love... well, either way, we know you'll keep up. =) AND to kick it off...


Arctic Monkeys!

Uhmm... no....

Yes yes yes!!
Besides being ADORABLE and BRITISH, these guys really can play music. (Yes, hard to believe, given their slightly Jonas Brothers look...)
Check them out! Here's some PERSONAL favorite songs of theirs...
-Mardy Bum
-Perhaps Vampires is a Bit Strong, But...
-Fluorescent Adolescent
