The Things that Lurk in the Medicine Cabinet

Leslie over at Stethoscopes and Stilettos tagged me with this medicine cabinet meme that she got from Supermommy. Like Leslie, I normally would be loathe to do this, but for her, I'm going to just suck it up and do it so she won't come and beat me to death with her stilettos. 

So, here's my main bathroom medicine cabinet. I'm showing you this one because this is the bathroom I use to get ready in the morning, such as it is. I don't do much because I'm so not a girlie girl, and I'm kind of lazy when it comes to non-mandatory grooming.

In fact, that little black bag up there is my very lonely make-up bag. Although I once wore make-up regularly, I detest wearing it for the following reasons:

1) My face feels like it's suffocating. When I wear it, I long to get home and scrub my face with soap and sandpaper.

2) I have a no-neck, so any make up on the jaw line will always end up on my collar bones. Seriously, I am not kidding. When I look at pictures of myself I think, Why is my head stuck on my shoulders like that? 

3) I knew I had a problem with make-up the day I was gazing into my boyfriend's eyes and I thought he would look much better with a bit of mascara.

4) When I did wear make-up regularly, I got so used to seeing myself with it on, that mornings were quite alarming for me and I couldn't leave the house without it. Then when I met Peanut Head, I decided before our first date to quit cold turkey. He was going to see the real me, so as never to be surprised at my no make-up face, ginormous volcano zit and all, and if it scared him, so be it.

So, the make-up is lonely, but we have one product in our cabinet that gets some heavy-duty daily use. If I could buy it by the gallon, I would. It's this:

The detangle spray.

Need I say more?

Although Girlfriend here could use a few swipes with an eyebrow pencil, don't you think?


  1. I love that picture of Zoe! That is just like little Toni bug's hair. The poor girl has to use detangler like there is no tomorrow.

  2. That picture is so FUNNY! How does her hair get that tangled???? My daughter is so tender-headed I think we would just have to shave hers if it ended up that tangled!...lol

  3. Oh I so have to stop reading your posts when I am at work. I just busted up laughing!! Even though I have seen that before I am rolling over here!

    On a different note...was wondering if you can do a post about saving your digital scrapbooking...I have done many pages but don't know the best way to save so I can get them printed! HELP! :) Please of course.

  4. She's going to hate you one day for posting that photo. You know that don't you?

  5. LOL! Thanks for making my Tuesday an exciting one! I love snooping in people's stuff--might be the number one reason I like to go to garage sales. Just to see what everyone else has and buys.

    If that tresemme really works then I need to get some for my own crazy hair!

    Thanks for the chance to spy! ;-)

  6. I love your beautiful storage option of a Domino's Pizza plastic cup! ; )

    AND OMG! THAT HAIR! Too funny!

  7. That's hilarious! Oh and I never thought to put a bottle of spray no wash in there, great idea.

    Thanks for playing.

  8. WOW, those are some serious tangles. I think that detangle stuff is the ONLY thing you need. After that I would be ready for a nap!


  9. Thanks for being such a good sport and playing along!! I would never beat you with my stilettos!! Why would I mess up a perfectly good pair of heels???

  10. you crack me up.

    I have a no-neck, so any make up on the jaw line will always end up on my collar bones. Seriously, I am not kidding. When I look at pictures of myself I think, Why is my head stuck on my shoulders like that?

    I DIE. me, too, girlfriend. tyra would say "you need to work on that." haha.

  11. Sparkette, In order to save and print your pages, you need to first save them as a jpg. Try to go under your save menu, save pages as, then save as a jpg.

  12. OMG, that is the cutest photo ever.
    I will definitely have to find that product for my daughter! The winter dryness really does a number on our hair.
