What Do You Do?

Happy day, dear reader! I ran across this little beauty questionnaire out in the blogosphere, and was tagged by a friend (?) to share. Here goes! The good, the bad, and the potentially embarrassing... 1. Eyelash Curler – Yes or No? YES! Sadly, everyday. Even when I am not wearing mascara. Which is rare. I… Continue reading What Do You Do?
