  1. Seriously? More catfish shit? Ugh.

  3. Meri Brown and her Wet Bar of Tears

    My best friend's mom HATES seeing pajamas at Walmart and has remarked on it for decades. A few years ago, my friend, her sister, and their families went to Walmart in pajamas, took a picture, framed it, and gave it to their mom at Christmas. It was awesome to see her laughing so hard. Best part was my friend's BIL wore a huge, pink bunny onesie--he's a rockstar!

    You're absolutely correct. I grew up Evangelical (I've been Catholic for five years or so--I finally feel 'at home') and these companies throw in all kinds of Christianese language in. "If you have the faith of a mustard seed you can move mountains" (Matthew 17:20) and "we're a company that puts God first, family second, and business third" (uh....not even close). That's why I feel companies like MK and LLR are predatory: the feed off of the weak with all that "sisterhood" and disgustingly happy and peppy "positivity" for which many women are desperate. Especially in an Evangelical and Mormon environment where men rule. It is sad, I think.

    The uplines earn money based upon how much their downlines purchase from the company. If the downlines never sell it, it matters not because the uplines get paid already. I've had more than a few Mary Kay people aggressively pursue me (I wear makeup and its very natural--no caterpillars above my eyes, no winged out eyeliner, no false lashes) so I've seen these people "work their business" and uplines pushing downlines to put orders in. I've lost several friends because I refused to be bullied into signing up. If I get a sniff of a MK lady, I turn and bolt. No more being nice and letting the "independent business woman" do a "facial" on me. That's why the individual downlines in companies like LLR have no chance; they're put to buy more inventory regardless of their ability to sell that inventory. The uplines don't care because they get paid by the orders, not the sales. Essentially, these consultants are the customers because they purchase the inventory. If they can't resell that inventory, well then they start shaming you. "You need to work harder, quitters never win and winners never quit". They have a language unto themselves. It really is sad and predatory of women who buy into the "dream". In the day of the internet where you can research anything before jumping in, I think there is no excuse for people getting involved in these things.
  6. Well, I'm a mess from fighting cancer for twenty years so with a low immunity I get everything. I always have sinus issues. I've had several surgeries (horrible) and my ENT has me doing nasal rinsed at least twice a day. I use the Dr Neil bottles and they come with saline packets; warm up some water and it takes 30seconds. If I don't do it I'm miserable. You can make your own saline solution (must have baking soda as a buffer!) but, to be honest, if it's not easy I won't do it. Yep. I'm a lazy one. I wouldn't do anything like this without a doctor's recommendation, though.
  7. Tatcha is my favourite!!! I use the line almost exclusively (with a couple Fresh brand items). My skin has never been better. It's expensive, but having better skin equals less makeup....or something.....just trying to justify my indulgence.

    Again, my eyes, MY EYES!!!! Those pics need warnings.
  9. Hey now, you've crossed the line, missy. LOL Coffee is one of the simple treasures I enjoy. I do not, however, post amateur photos of coffee mugs to show off my joy of morning coffee.....because, no one cares. I went to grad school and loved it. I would totally be a professional student if I could. But short of becoming independently wealthy, it will never happen. I'm a voracious reader, though, so I'm always learning something.

    Akiane Kramarik is the child prodigy who painted this image, "Prince of Peace". She paints her visions of heaven, including mesmerizing images of Jesus. Akiane’s “Prince of Peace” painting was completed when she was only 8 years old.

    I actually think Maddie and her husband and boy seem like a really sweet family. I love her Minnie Mouse look--adorable with the hair knots as ears and polka dot shirt.
  12. "IT MONDAY WHICH MEANS ONLY 3 DAYS UNTIL HALLOWEEN!!" So the "woman entrepreneur's" first communique introducing her business opens like this?? I get that operating tanning beds doesn't require stellar writing skills, but anytime I see such glaring errors I wonder what other details are overlooked. Janelle is a terrible writer, photographer, and example. I wouldn't even subscribe to her Strive thing for free. She's always so negative (someone upthread said 'Eeyore' which is spot on....although I think Eeyore is much more likable.....man, I'm being a bitch today). If you are presenting yourself as a wellness coach or whatever she claims, you need to be approachable and relatable, but confident and a step ahead of the pack. She can't even inspire herself, why on earth would she expect others to follow and pay for her poorly written and woefully unprofessional output? Sorry for my bitchyness (is that even a word?).... I've been sick for days. Thank you all for cheering me up; I come to these boards to get a laugh reading your witty and well-written snark. You are my soul sisters.
  13. I despise the "artistic" trend of photographs of feet. I've seen this all over for the last 5-10 years and I don't want to see bare feet! Why ruin a beautiful picture of the ocean by blocking it with feet?! Your face, fine, but decades from now your offspring's offspring will not be viewing family photos and say, "Oh, look! It's great grandma!! I'd know those feet anywhere!" Sorry, this is a big pet peeve of mine #itstroublinghowirritatedigetaboutfeetphotography See, I can hashtag too! Regarding the upthread discussion on hair colour: I colour (read: cover the ever spreading silver) a dark brown, which is very close to my natural colour. I'm also so pale that I joke about being a vampire. It was only in the last five years or so when makeup brands have been expanding their colour ranges that I have actually found foundations in a few brands that match my skin. I've always had to buy the lightest colour and those weren't light enough until some higher end brands started carrying shades of "snow" and "porcelain". So, I have really dark hair, porcelain snow vampire skin, and green eyes. I wear black nearly exclusively, not as a fashion statement per say but I just started about ten years ago after my pancreatic cancer and my dad dying (RIP, beloved Daddy--he died ten years ago on the 18th, which also happens to be my oldest daughter's birthday; November is a mixed bag for me). It's not to be morbid or anything and it wasn't a conscious decision; I like remembering Johnny Cash wore all black, too. Yeah, I'm a weirdo. Has anyone seen the British comedy "Are You Being Served?"? You have to appreciate British humour to enjoy it, but the character Mrs Slocum always has brightly coloured hair--purple, pink, blue, green, yellow--any colour you can imagine. The actress dyed her hair for the part for the first season, but it fried her hair so badly it just broke apart. After the first season, she wore wigs but I always laugh when she walks in with a new colour.

    I'm not sure that line was so 'invisible'. Meri lacks the insight to recognize and respect another's boundaries. Good for Maddie--this has certainly increased my regard for her. It seems like these kids are mostly breaking free and having better lives than do their parents. The parents all seems so miserable; I can't imagine living life in such a miserable state and CHOOSING to do absolutely nothing to improve or change that which (or those who) make your life so unhappy.
  15. My husband, though in law enforcement, has a degree in wildlife biology and he's been putting out different feeds and luring a variety of birds to our yard. It's very enjoyable to see all different colours flitting about. He also builds kestrel nest boxes and this year got to band a baby kestrel. My 11 year old got to hold it as well. I love where we live.
